EMPERATRON is a three-piece dj/producer collective formed in early 2009 in Helsinki, Finland. The trio consists of Duponddupont, Juden and Plus de Massiff who saturate house music with bass and they’re credited with some of the craziest parties in Helsinki for doing just that. Never mind the venues were over capacity, people came to party and Emperatron simply provided the appropriate answer. They’ve since been played massive gigs in Paris, an intense parties in Berlin, St. Petersburg so expect more to come from these bass monsters.
King Riddim is their first EP and features remixes from SHARKSLAYER and a Parisian new-comer, Pressure. I’m all about the original mix though.

I grew up with two sisters who were were both submerged in 80s glam rock and metal and even though both of them were much older than me, they influenced me much more than they ever knew. This tune is for them.
SPECIMEN A take Foreigner’s hit and wobble the eff out if it. They drop an exclusive free download of their eagerly awaited dubstep bomb ‘Cold As Ice’, a monster cover of Foreigner’s 80′s classic given a nasty bassline makeover 2010 style. This one drops hard like the titanic!

You may should consider looking at Speciemen A’s back catalogue too. In principle, I’m against tunes that talk about djing because in general, these things lack substance, but this tune is well, deadly, which is exactly why I picked it up from beatport a couple months ago.
Last year, SHARKSLAYER remixed a bootleg just as deadly, with a different bpm.
