Where is the love for EMPIRION?

And where is Empirion now? One great, great album (Advanced Technology, XL 1996), one fabulous B-side (Quark Remix, on the Jesus Christ single), and then... nothing.

Apart from one remix (Doc Scott I think), they were IMHO a bit rubbish. Sub-standard Underworld apers, also-rans from the earlier 90s British electronic scene. Sorry!

'Narcotic Influence' is a hard-tech/house (before there was tech-house) classic but I never really investigated them further.

'Narcotic Influence' I think I have that 12 "

Oh yeah, forgot Narcotic Influence. Probably the weakest track on the seminal Flux Trax compilation but given the company that's hardly an insult.

Still think what I did in this thread's first post.

Oz & Jamie back in the studio under the Empirion moniker, apparently?

Empirion remixed Victory Pill's (= Jim Davies, guitar player for Pitchshifter & The Prodigy) next single Burnout and the mix was Kris Needs' tune of the week on his radio show @ Fnoob. (about 61 minutes into part 2 of "dom kris and michelle - jan 12 2011 pt 2" here: http://fnoob.com/music/hutchfever )

Both Dan and I are fans, last I checked! Not sure why neither of us haven't posted on here before...

Hooray!

On the other hand, I don't know if there's a point to all of this, 15 years after the album. Not sure if I want to hear new material anymore, even though I love almost all of the old stuff. :-/

Anyway, they've planned three more shows in the UK:

The Purple Turtle - Camden London, N1, UK Thu Jul 28
Classic Grand Glasgow, GLG, UK Sat Dec 10
KOKO London, UK Sun Dec 11
