Sublight: “Evil Empire” DJ set

A tribute to a true original master – the one and only Alec Empire. Culled from the vaults of his DHR label, as well as old Force Inc./Mille Plateaux releases, this covers many of the genres he’s dipped his toes into – acid, breakcore, ambient/experimental, and some serious lo-beat harshness – much of which has created or furthered the template for these forms. There are probably a few tracks in here that aren’t strictly his (Atari Teenage Riot and a few side projects), and some that might just be on his label (I’m sure there’s a Christoph de Babylon track in here somewhere…), regardless, you’ll see his hands at work in all of it – plus the mixing on this set appears to be more than a bit batshit crazy – in this case that might just help. Enjoy.
