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".
