Emptyset are a London-based electronic duo made up of James Ginzburg and Paul Purgas. They made their latest album, Blossoms, using Machine Learning Technology. Ginzburg is known as a solo artist and as the person who runs the label Subtext and co-runs Arc Light Editions. Purgas curated the Wysing Arts Centre’s annual music festival and has lectured and written books on electronic music. It’s fair to say they know their stuff.

Heema / Shiva Dance

AMRA is a new collaborative project between Emptyset’s Paul Purgas and artist/musician Imran Perretta. Trawling through archives of sound from South Asia for inspiration, this hand-stamped 10” white label single produces two tracks, ‘Heema’ and ‘Shiva Dance’, which explore notions of ancestry and futurology.

More dark and heavy beat-work from Bristol / Berlin’s Emptyset. On Borders, the duo have incorporated some acoustic instruments into their tangled web of brutalist electronics, pushing their sound into some new areas, though don’t worry: this is still music to wreck buildings to. Borders is Emptyset’s first release for the Thrill Jockey label.
