THE EMPEROR MACHINE - RMI Is All I Want - Southern Fried Records
Ahead of the release of his latest album, ‘Like A Machine’, The Emperor Machine serves up a stunning lead single in the shape of ‘RMI is All I Want’, complete with killer remixes from Erol Alkan and Dimitri Veimar.
‘RMI Is All I Want’ in original form is a stomping brew of gurgling, malfunctioning machine lines, bright dark disco synths and dirty rock licks that is funkier than a funky thing. Riddled with attitude and psychedelic charm it sits pretty right at the heart of the excellent forthcoming album.
Phantasy Sound label boss and notorious multi genre specialist Erol Alkan remixes the track first. His extended rework is even more expressive, with shooting synths, tumbling drums and fractured vocals all wrapped up in ripping pixelated lines and frosty textures. It’s a peak time freak out that tugs in many different directions and will truly blow dancefloors away.
Finally, Daniel Avery recommended, Moscow based German Dimitri Veimar then steps up with his squelchy take on the original. This one is a bit more groove driven with incessant hi hats, techno pulses down below and harmonic melodies sprinkled across the top.
This is another stunning single from The Emperor Machine and further ratchets up the excitement in the lead up to his brand new album in May. This year’s Record Store Day will be marked with a special version of the LP available on the 19th April and this June will see The Emperor Machine return to the stage, bringing his live show to XOYO as part of the 2 Bears summer residency.
