Boomkat Product Review:
Now we've absolutely no idea who DJ Empty is, seriously. He's a mystery to us and his identity is as shadowy as his moniker. We can tell you who it sounds like though, and as soon as the needle hit the wax we were transported back to the heady early days of the Godlike Matthew Herbert; Radioboy, Dr. Rockit. You remember, when electronic music was still exciting, still making people laugh, cry and think up long charts to post on their Geocities sites. Oh nostalgia, still rather than a simple exercise in times past this untitled 12" does a great job in taking the sound a few steps forward. The glitched-out DSP sounds are muted somewhat to give way to an almost African sound, a sound reminiscent of Konono No.1 in the repetitive Mbira-style patterns and hiccupping drum beats. This is intricate stuff, and while it could be any number of artists it doesn't really matter when the result is this good... just buy it.
