DJ Alec Empire, the experimental German artist will showcase his finest works in a 3-hour set at the Alternation party at DXO on 20th September. He last played here at Zouk in 1996. Empire was just on tour with NINE INCH NAILS right before coming to Singapore.

The founder of Digital Hardcore Records and Atari Teenage Riot (ATR), Empire is probably known as the most controversial electronic artist in the world.

His works span different genres of music, though he is more well-known for digital hardcore, a term coined by Empire himself to describe the sound made by ATR. Digital hardcore fuses elements of punk and electronica characterized with Empire’s trademark, spoken/shouted English vocals.

Oops! did a phone interview with Alec Empire in Germany, where he just finished a great show in Munich on 6th Sept at 3am, German time.

Master Alex with his magic box!

Singapore Polytechnic’s Convention Hall was filled with cheers as Dr. A. Alexander a.k.a. ‘Master Magician Alex’ appeared on stage defying gravity. It was an impressive touch of special effect as mist was also used, adding to the overall grand spectacle of his appearance. The levitation however, dragged on for far too long, and broke the spell for some. Minor details like this, mar the essential beauty of his first ever 3-day Live performance from 11-13 August in Singapore. Show highlights included acts based on unusual magic tricks, hypnotism, illusions, black art, and gravity defying wonders and scintillating demonstration of mental magic.
