Second chapter on the way towards the anticipated release of their third studio album on Stil vor Talent, ‘Momentum’, here comes Hidden Empire’s second EP, ‘Last Call’. Tapping in the duo’s trademark seam of EBM-laced techno bound for hi-impact dancefloor hustle and further far-reaching, cross-dimensional escapology, this second instalment delivers a serious amount of craggy electro reliefs to surf and synth-splattered jack to sync your brainwaves to.
Whereas the lead number ‘Last Call’ has us journeying to straight out Moroder-esque territories, flush with the aptly configured palette of fuzzy space disco bass, fast-paced Italo churn and vocodized talk for good measure, the second track ‘Avalanche’ opts for a more brooding, deadlier approach. Cutting its path away from prying eyes, this one finds Hidden Empire pulling the stealth weaponry to absolute hypnotic effect – perfect for serious in-between peak time business with its thick, thriller-like tension, mist-shrouded atmosphere and surgical focus. One more to go until ‘Momentum’ blasts its way across your woofers. Buckle your belt and brace for impact.
You can now listen to the full premiere of ‘Avalanche’ exclusively on When We Dip. Enjoy!
