Two years since Futurist and Alec Empire welcomes in 2008 with a new label, a new sound and, more importantly, a new album. Representing, as he says himself, “a side of me that has always been there, but hasn’t been heard yet", THE GOLDEN FORETASTE OF HEAVEN retains the forcefulness and political savvy which have become his trademarks but is aimed squarely at the dancefloor, the distorted noise and hardcore riffs making way for funky beats and crisp, clean, danceable electronica. A new generation of kids are about to discover Empire’s voice and politics; but this time on the dancefloor as opposed to the rioting streets. DJs and radio stations across Europe have already been spinning On Fire, Ice, Bug on my Windshield and, the appropriately titled, NEW MAN paving the way for Golden Foretaste to become one of Alec Empire’s most successful releases to date.
