    Coming from the depths of Utrecht in The Netherlands, powerful
    trio Black Sun Empire are set to follow their Beatport topping
    fourth album 'From The Shadows' with new remix album
    'Variations On Black'. Showcasing some of the most visceral and
    volatile drum and bass you will hear all year, the new album
    package is due for release on their eponymous record label,
    Blackout Music, on late November 18th.

    Alongside a selection of special VIP versions from the group themselves, the album features a carefully curated selection of artists on remix duties that draws together a host of the most talented and respected names in electronic music. Artists such as Noisia, S.P.Y., Phace & Misanthrop, Icicle and Ultrerior Motive, amongst others, step up to the plate with fresh reimaginings of BSE tracks.

    With a collection of 27 tracks, knockout blows come thick and fast as each artist takes on the challenge with aplomb. Noisia's rejig of 'Arrakis' pays extra attention to the dark side, fighting against the odds with its larger than life tones and jagged saw synth movements, Ulterior Motive's twist on'Monologue' is crammed with perfectly tuned drumwork, and on 'Killing The Light', Icicle bites into a Halloween-esque, jump up style movement with sniper-like precision. Elsewhere, BSE deliver VIPs of 'Drizzle', 'Milkshake'
    and 'Hideous' alongside Audio, Eye D and Noisia respectively, cranking up the pressure as they brilliantly rework them into new dance floor pummeling shapes.

    Since bursting onto the scene back in 2000, Black Sun Empire have continued to develop their own unique style and sound. Releasing numerous singles as well as five full-length LPs they have established themselves as undoubted leaders in their field, driving forward not just drum & bass but electronic music as a whole. With their impressive DJ skills and forwardfacing productions, Black Sun Empire have reached far beyond their native Holland. They've toured the world over, with highlights including Glastonbury and numerous other international festival appearances, they continue to build on their growing reputation as some of the most exciting and consistent performers around.

    Their latest LP, 'From The Shadows' further affirmed their position, becoming the biggest selling release on Beatport for 2012, and in doing so keeping deadmau5' 'Album Title Goes Here' off the #1 spot. With such a respectable clique of acts moulding their own interpretations of the album for this remix project, Black Sun Empire continue to hold their title as drum and bass' most exciting collective.

    Drum and bass heavyweights Black Sun Empire announced the launch of their new label, BLACKOUT music nl. The first release on the imprint will be the highly anticipated EP by Optiv & BTK, Bad Attitude, which will be out on May 13.

    The globally-respected drum and bass collective trio have been true innovators in electronic music for more than a decade. We, Black Sun Empire, want to build a stronger brand for BLACKOUT by expanding the events we are already setting up around the world and combining it with our years of experience with running successful labels. We think it is important to let the two grow together, under one name, pushing the sound and artists we feel are sometimes undervalued. By joining forces with artists we believe in, and by giving our fans (who live all around the globe) a common platform to stay informed and keep in touch, we hope to build a home for all who, like us, have a strong love for this kind of drum and bass: energy-driven, hard, melodic and a little crazy, explain label bosses Milan Heyboer, Micha Heyboer and Rene Verdult.

    Over the last year, the duo known as Optiv & BTK have dominated the drum & bass scene with their unrelenting output of high-quality, strictly-for-the-dance-floor releases and worldwide DJ sets. Optiv (from the UK) and BTK (from Brazil) joined forces in their new hometown of Bern, Switzerland after meeting up at various drum and bass events in the area. Once inside the studio, the collaborative vibe and rapid results made it clear that consequences would never be the same. Bad Attitude' will be released worldwide on May 13.

    Black Sun Empire represents the finest in dark and tech fuelled dance-floor drum & bass. Since bursting onto the scene back in 2000, they've continued to develop their own unique style and sound, releasing numerous singles as well as five full-length LPs and establishing themselves as leaders in the field. With their impressive DJ skills and inspirational productions, Black Sun Empire has reached far beyond their native Holland. They've toured around the world, with highlights including Glastonbury and numerous other festival appearances, and continue to build on their growing reputation as some of the most exciting and consistent performers in the scene.

    From their base in Utrecht, Holland, the Black Sun Empire trio have truly gone global, taking their own brand of high-octane techno-infused drum & bass to audiences worldwide, with over 100 appearances at live stages and clubs in the last year alone.

    Their own club night, Blackout, celebrated it's ninth year anniversary in February 2012 and has seen guest appearances from some of the very best artists in drum & bass and dubstep including Goldie, Dom & Roland, Klute, Optical, Spor, Nero, and Bar 9.

  • Optiv & BTK - Bad Attitude - BLCKTNL001 Teaser

    59

    Drum and bass heavyweights Black Sun Empire announced the launch of their new label, BLACKOUT music nl. The first release on the imprint will be the highly anticipated EP by Optiv & BTK, Bad Attitude, which will be out on May 13 (Beatport Exclusive).

    The globally-respected drum and bass collective trio have been true innovators in electronic music for more than a decade. We, Black Sun Empire, want to build a stronger brand for BLACKOUT by expanding the events we are already setting up around the world and combining it with our years of experience with running successful labels. We think it is important to let the two grow together, under one name, pushing the sound and artists we feel are sometimes undervalued. By joining forces with artists we believe in, and by giving our fans (who live all around the globe) a common platform to stay informed and keep in touch, we hope to build a home for all who, like us, have a strong love for this kind of drum and bass: energy-driven, hard, melodic and a little crazy, explain label bosses Milan Heyboer, Micha Heyboer and Rene Verdult.

    Over the last year, the duo known as Optiv & BTK have dominated the drum & bass scene with their unrelenting output of high-quality, strictly-for-the-dance-floor releases and worldwide DJ sets. Optiv (from the UK) and BTK (from Brazil) joined forces in their new hometown of Bern, Switzerland after meeting up at various drum and bass events in the area. Once inside the studio, the collaborative vibe and rapid results made it clear that consequences would never be the same. Bad Attitude' will be released worldwide on May 13 (Beatport Exclusive).

    Black Sun Empire represents the finest in dark and tech fuelled dance-floor drum & bass.

  • Optiv & BTK - Blackjack ft. Ryme Tyme Virus Recordings

    2:37

    Optiv & BTK join forces and invite you into their Blackjack album.

    Representing the next step in both their journeys, the album sets the stage for Virus Recordings for both this year and the future. With dynamism, funk and an overarching sense of groove, the record plays to the strengths of both producers, creating something which is more than the sum of its parts. Take a trip into the darkside, with the experience and talent of Optiv & BTK as your guides.

    The album begins with tracks like the stalking, shimmering title cut, which features vocals from MC Rymetyme. The pace is picked up with choices such as Telepathy and Subterranean, which show that BTK and Optiv, both with years in the game, are still repositories of new, fresh and invigorating ideas. The latter, especially, see the producers go deep, working the elements of their tracks into different directions, but holding things together like only they can do. The sawing, cutting Shredder is an absolutely huge track, taking influence from both electro and dark techno, to create a menacing underworld where the stuff of nightmares comes alive.

    Probably the biggest tune on the entire LP is Intruder, which features Mindscape. An electronic voice guides you in, before the pace is slowly built up, and flashy effects lead up to the drop. The name of the label is all over this one, and the smash-through beats and bass are something to behold.

    Complete dancefloor devastation has always been Optiv and BTK's aim, and if that is your bag, go no further than the phenomenal Dirt Box, with its riffing, riding bassline and pure in-your-face feel. Nothing will feel the same after you hear it, but there's no rest, as Ground Shaker (with Nuklear MC) and Snake Bite (once again with Rymetyme) keep up the pace. The album is fresh, exciting, and shows two masters of the music taking it far and wide. The beats smash anything they have done to date, and the basslines are always hard and tight throughout.

    Touches of the old skool on Nemesis (with Mindscape), and the sheer power of Weapon Of Choice show the variety at the heart of Blackjack, and the passion and delivery of cuts like Heart Shape (which benefits from the inclusion of Black Sun Empire) shows that the years have taken nothing from Optiv& BTK's creative flow, and desire to rock the crowd.
    Blackjack is next level, and will be many people's choice for album of the year.
