Black Sun Empire have just dropped ‘Until The World Ends’ - a five-track, collaborative EP with State Of Mind. Out via their genre-defining Blackout imprint, this EP marks an exciting start to 2015.
Lead track ‘Ego’, premiered by UKF, immediately sets the tone with growling bass lines, punchy synth-stabs and techy atmospherics. The second track ‘Until The World Ends’ proves Black Sun Empire's enduring versatility. 'Bad’ opens with progressive percussion and synths that move euphorically to a pounding drum break. The fourth track ‘Jack Nicholson’, premiered by DJ Mag, samples the man himself, creating a bass-fuelled shockwave of a song. ‘Moonbox’ closes the EP in true Blackout fashion, with signature frenetic beats and firing drums.

Phace is the alias used by Florian Harres, an electronic music producer, DJ and label owner from Hamburg, Germany. Over the past decade he not only defined his very own style of cutting-edge electronic music but also toured most corners of this planet, building a large, faithful global following. His wide-ranging back catalogue of music includes three full length albums, various EP's plus countless chart breaking singles and collaborations.
Phace’s music is released on the world’s most famous indie labels such as Vision, Owsla, Mau5trap, Shogun Audio, Critical and of course Neosignal Recordings, his own imprint, which is going to release his fourth artist album titled 'Shape The Random' in March 2015.
His sound is best described by twisted bass, rhythmical experimentation, high contrast ambience, deep cinematic themes, explosive energy, and yet human analog soul and funk. This unique approach is constantly piquing demand for appearances at clubs, festivals and media around the globe.
Multi-award winning DRS has shown over the years that he has a talent for writing, singing, rapping and an unrivalled ability to hold a crowd in the palm of his hand.
March 30th 2015 will see Soul:R release the second solo album by DRS - Mid Mic Crisis. The Manchester living, world-travelling artist presents his most complete work to date, a canvas painted vividly with all his experiences collected from past to present.
As part of this next phase of his musical evolution, DRS presents 'DRS Live'. Featuring himself and a 5 piece live band ('8 Gold Rings') alongside guest vocalists and DJ's, this project further cements his reputation as one of the most respected and talented wordsmiths in UK music.
