Love Lick - (11:05) 102 BPM
   
Sisco Seeker - (10:15) 108 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: This is something of a coup for Nein Records. They've persuaded Andrew Meecham to bring his Emperor Machine project to the label for a one-off EP, following years of inspired releases on D.C Recordings and Southern Fried. Predictably, the former Bizarre Inc and Chicken Lips man rises to the occasion. He begins with the wonky, A Love From Outer Space style slo-mo chug of "Love Lick", where pitched-down Moroder style arpeggios and vintage synthesizer melodies rub shoulders with raw electronics and dreamy pads over the course of 11 mesmerizing minutes. There's more analogue sweetness to be found on the similarly epic - if more obviously up-tempo - "Sisco Seeker", whose drum machine beats, bold chords and attack-on-the-senses electronics are just that little bit more robust. Impressive stuff, all told.

Review: After a few 12" shapes entrees last year, Southern Fried introduce the main courser that is Like A Machine, the latest long player from Andy Meecham's The Emperor Machine project. A mainstay of J Saul Kane's seminal DC Recordings label, it's nice to see Meecham's been granted the opportunity to continue The Emperor Machine's ongoing hardware experiments unfettered by Southern Fried with Like A Machine twelve tracks deep with wondrous synth-fuelled, funky cosmic electroid disco. Once again it's Meecham's production range that shines through on this fourth LP as The Emperor Machine with the moments that explore loose limbed punk funk such as "The Point" and "Voices" particularly rewarding.

Review: For those with a passion for wonky analogue disco and left-of-centre house, Ewan Pearson remixing the Emperor Machine is a very enticing proposition. Predictably, Pearson doesn't disappoint, laying down a series of extra special mixes. His two "Skronk" versions - so called, we suspect, as their combination of parping, discordant saxophone, undulating analogue rhythms and post-punk New York attitude doffs a cap to Konk - are particularly good, with the vocal-less Skronk Dub standing out. Elsewhere, the tougher and wonkier Dubstrumental is also excellent, while the Skronk Disco Mix, complete with acid-flecked intro, shouldn't be ignored. Top stuff all round.

Review: Swiss eccentric Robi Insinna seems to be having something of an identity crisis. This sixth solo full length is credited to both Headman - his now familiar alias for coursing, punk-funk influenced dancefloor attacks - and his given name. As if that wasn't enough to baffle the easily confused, 6 also includes contributions from an impressive array of guest bands, producers and vocalists, including Hiem's Bozzwell, Red Axes, Brassica and The Emperor Machine. Musically, it's business as usual, with the ten murky but stylish tracks variously fusing coldwave synths, punk-funk basslines, dub disco grooves, spiralling electronics and a smidgeon of acid house into wonky and entertaining new shapes.

Review: Long before nu disco, edits and hipster beards became trendy, there was The Emperor Machine. Andy Meecham's studio project yielded a series of albums and EPs worth of oddball electronic disco, first on J Saul Kane's DC and then Southern Fried. After a short break, Meecham is back and never sounded so relevant. "2500 Edit" is a stuttering, atonal groove, while "System 700 Jam" sees him up the ante with a bleep-heavy, jacking groove. Label owner Prins Thomas delivers a more streamlined take on "2500" with a rolling, percussive take, before Meecham descends back into weirdness with the lo-fi, discordant "System 100 Jam".

Review: Analogue synth fetishist Andrew Meecham is back in action, delivering another EP full of wayward electronic treats under the now familiar Emperor Machine alias. Like its predecessor, release back in December 2016, 2500 Volume 2 is full of off-kilter treats that sound like the product of late night hardware jams. Check, for example, the fizzing, intergalactic electronics, bass-heavy thrust and acid-flecked drive of intense opener "U.M.O" and the John Carpenter-goes-to-Croatia synth-scape "Back to Bali". Arguably best of all, though, is the feverish late night workout "Africa V2", in which drum machine poly-rhythms are peppered with mind-bending noises and foreboding modular motifs. Wolf Muller's remix of that track, which blends Meecham's wild electronics with the German producer's own organic drums, is arguably even better.
