‘New Babylon’ is the first release on Empathy – a new concept from Pris and Deejay Astral.
Following on from releases on Non Series, Avian, Semantica, Envra and Propaganda Moscow, Pris’ ‘New Babylon’ sees him demonstrate a more refined approach to production. The EP has already been supported by the likes of Daniel Avery, Randomer, Laurel Halo, Chrissy, Dax J and Pangaea.
Pris and Deejay Astral’s latest label, Empathy, is a mixed media project. They previously worked together on the Resin imprint. The label will be approaching a limited physical format with 25 high quality handmade 180-gram vinyl records being produced locally at Disc Archive Berlin with no repress.
Talking about their Empathy project, Pris and Deejay Astral said, “in an increasingly cold and corporate world, music has lost emotion and meaning, becoming nothing more than a commodity that is consumed, sold and often forgotten. Human attention is driven by online algorithms. Our data is stored, and the machine becomes increasingly more intelligent, continuing to control our future emotions and desires, enticing us deeper into the netscape. Empathy explores this relationship between the creator, the controller and the digital free world.”
