EMP has some exciting news for us this morning – Not only will he be working on a new prog act called Contra, but he will also be working on a completely new and original live set for EMP. And if that didn’t get your heart racing, he also decided to give us an Exclusive End of Season Mix with all of his usual bangers as an unlimited free download. More info about his new Contra act and EMP set below:

“So basically this past season was just a huge experiment for me. I wanted to try out as many new ideas as I could – some of which worked and some didn’t. I’ve also been writing a progressive set for a new act named Contra and that has taught me a lot about the power of space and subtleties of persussion. I want to go back to my roots now though moving forward. For my next set I’m going to write the whole hour as one concept rather than having each track as an idea and really play with the space that allows. I’ve been listening to a lot of Scorb, Antispin, NRS, RAM etc. and have started a new set in that style of massive rolling basslines and huge airy psychedelia at around 145bpm. It’s going to be quite a 180 degree turn from what I did this last season, but I feel I kinda got that out my system and learned a lot from it. This new set is going to be completely original, no remixes, and i’m looking to add a proper show to it, with live visuals and guest instrumentalists.”
