The Emperor Machine returns with his first new release in almost four years, the wonderful ‘Like a Machine’ backed with a remix from the legendary Andrew Weatherall… Andy Meecham AKA The Emperor Machine really needs little introduction, having been at the forefront of electronic music for well over 20 years now. His musical history as Bizarre Inc, Sir Drew and Chicken Lips charts the changing face of dance music over the last two decades but it is perhaps as The Emperor Machine that he has found his most experimental and innovative outlet. The three albums from The Emperor Machine to date are held close to hearts of his many fans across the globe and so it will come as welcome news that he is back with his first new material in almost four years and that this single is the precursor to a much anticipated new LP. ‘Like A Machine’ sees Meecham dive back into classic Emperor Machine territory with a pulsing and purring slice of electronic disco that builds artound a rolling arpeggio in continual flux whilst the layers the track with an array of FX, instrumentation and vocal incantations. The ‘Stretched Erotic dub’ strips things back to the underlying groove, delivering a cut that lets the subtleties of the arrangement shine. Nestled in the middle of this package we have music legend and inspirational anti-hero Mr. Andrew Weatherall at the controls, he takes ‘Like a Machine’ and revamps it into a deep and rolling rework that is an instant late night druggy anthem with its off kilter synth lines and added spoken word vocal parts; as brilliant as you would expect! Finally the package is completed with bonus cut ‘System Seven Hundred’ a track that see The Emperor Machine journey into mid tempo hypnotic wonderment with a record that builds and builds as only Mr Meecham knows how.
