EE-002: EPG - We Are Electro (Electro Empire Records) 12" vinyl

  • EPG "We Are Electro" (Electro Empire, EE-002)

    Electro Empire, the longest established online community for the international Electrofunk, Bass & Technobreaks music scene, presents the second installment from its in-house publishing company, a sub-label of Germany's Dominance Electricity imprint.

    This vital production by the British EPG a.k.a. Electro Pulse Generators is an ode to the classic Electro genre. But traditional instrumentation and inspirations from legendary acts such as The Jonzun Crew and The Egyptian Lover aside, "We Are Electro" is much more than just another '80s tribute jam. Loaded with analog synths, 808 drum sounds and Vocoder vocals it also carries the originality and musical depth to become a classic in its own right. Join the journey... :cylon:

  • Here's my review of this fantastic release!

    E.P.G - We Are Electro - Electro Empire EE-002
    Four months after the digital reissue of classic vinyl compilation “Theme Of Electro Empire” featuring reworks by Gab.Gato, Paul Blackford, Split DJ, Laite, DJ Wildthing, Polytron, and The Metric Brothers, E.P.G (for Electro Pulse Generators) adds his name to the list of talents published on Dominance Electricity’s sub-label. The British artist signs here his debut 12’’ and the 2nd installment of Electro Empire Records.
    Retro “We Are Electro”, available in both main and extended mixes, serves up an amazing tribute to the legacy of Electro pionneers Jonzun Cru, Egyptian Lover or Afrikaa Bambaataa just to name but a few.
    Turning into a proper old school electro funk affair, this timeless gem carries the original spirit of the “Back in the Dayz” sound mixing together cool scratches, vintage analog synth sequences, killer vocoder lyrics, heading melodies, classic samples and epic 808 beats reminding of Dynamik Bass System's seminal works. As the first dark notes drop, soulful "We Are Electro" will reveal all the potential of this instant classic Miami Bass jam. A real tour de force from the one and only E.P.G!
    Available through the Dominance Store "Save Our Sounds", and wherever you buy digital music, the 12", limited to 200 copies in metallic silver print comes within the great tradition of the 80’s and celebrates the essence of Electro Empire, not only a label but also the longest running portal for the international Electrofunk, Bass & Technobreaks music scene: to unite freaks worldwide around a musical passion since 1998! We Are Electro, We Are One!

    And the French translation:

    E.P.G - We Are Electro - Electro Empire EE-002
    Quatre mois après la réédition digitale d'un classique vinyle du genre, la compilation "Theme Of Electro Empire" réunissant les remixes de
    Gab.Gato, Paul Blackford, Split DJ, Laite, DJ Wildthing, Polytron, et The Metric Brothers, E.P.G (pour Electro Pulse Generators) ajoute son nom à la liste déjà conséquente des talents publiés sur le sous-label de Dominance Electricity. L'artiste anglais signe ici son premier EP et la seconde sortie d'Electro Empire Records.
    Le rétro "We Are Electro", disponible en versions main et extended, rend un hommage appuyé à l'héritage laissé par les pionniers Jonzun Cru, Egyptian Lover ou Afrikaa Bambaataa pour n'en citer que quelques-uns.
    Mutant en une ode Electro funk old school, ce titre intemporel conserve l'esprit original du son de l'époque; il mélange avec habileté scratches frénétiques, séquences de synthés analogiques vintage, vocodeur imparable, mélodies entêtantes, samples de classiques pu encore beats issus de TR808 endiablée faisant échos aux travaux de Dynamik Bass System.
    Les premières notes révéleront tout le potentiel de "We Are Electro", un futur classique soûl aux tonalités Miami Bass. E.P.G réalise là un véritable tour de force.
    Disponible sur le store en ligne de Dominance "Save Our Sounds" et chez vos disquaires digitaux habituels, le maxi, limité dans sa version vinyle à 200 copies reconnaissables par leur macaron métallique, se situe dans la grande tradition electro des années 80 et souligne les fondements mêmes d'Electro Empire, non seulement un label mais également un portail international à la plus grande longévité dont la mission
    depuis 1998 est d'unir tous les freaks autour de la musique Electrofunk, Bass & Technobreaks !
    We Are Electro, We Are One!
