The Empire Line is a new project that brings together two of experimental electronic music's finest practitioners, Northern Electronics co-founder Varg and Posh Isolation co-founder Christian Stagsgaard. The four tracks showcased on this debut EP were apparently recorded at Mayhem in Copenhagen, a renowned experimental performance and rehearsal space. The cuts can be divided into two distinct camps: the atmospheric noise-meets-ambient flavours of "Fragrance Arpege" and fuzzy, sprawling "Jewelry Armoire", and the percussion-driven dancefloor darkness of "Cafe Anglais" and "Syndicat de la Couture". The latter, with its meandering acid lines, hushed electronics and shuffling drumbeats, is arguably the record's standout moment.
