About Empress Touch

Hi all.

My name's Carl. I'm (at the moment) a former musician who after failing to be a protest-singer, songwriter and producer, now has found a role in music called being a 'reinterpreter'. By this I mean someone who happens to be a passionate music lover, but often wishing artists had approached making their own music in just a slightly different way, and setting about trying to make it just that little bit better.

By better, I mean using 'ideas' - NOT 'material'.

And I don't do this alone, for all great music requires being able to look at doing something very difficult, by looking at the goal trying to be achieved in many different ways. In other words: through teamwork.

For instance, the synth-pop giants Depeche Mode achieved their creative best when freeing themselves from the band members' individual roles, by interacting and challenging each other. Putting each others' roles in others' viewpoints. This takes a lot of digging deep, a lot of pride-swallowing, a lot of perseverance and a lot of maturity.

But if you can do this with the focus of achieving what I for one (as part of teams working together) always try to:
offer art ideas that no-one else has tried to spot,
as a story -
NOT a commodity -
the journey is always fun.
And I mean fun, whether you do actually achieve the end result well, or not.

I also compose instrumentals for an album of completely new material, which may be completed in the next decade.

Stay tuned for details...

To the N1M fans who've taken an interest in my music,
many thanks for trusting your curiosity.

For those who've been dropping me a line,
wanting to know when the new vocal tracks will finally surface...
well... we're working on it.

Very excited on what's in store for 2021,
but it's one step at a time.


For now,
here's another of the After The Rain remixes -
this time, from the German producer and remixer Rob Dust.

Do feel free to let me know your thoughts.

An mp3 clip is online now at my N1M page,
expect the full track streaming for listening pleasure on Sunday.


Best wishes to you all

More content on the way very soon, possibly with some fresh vocal tracks, as well as instrumental.

But 'til then,
please let me let you guys know about some of the superb new music I've heard in the past twelve brutal months:


Eyes Without A Face - 'The Grift'

(Nothing to do with the 1984 Billy Idol power ballad), this very gritty and dark song from the Canadian vocal electronic band really does push the listeners' attention to the daring heights New Order and Depeche once would have, many year ago. They also released a video to a superb single, early in 2020.


Heliophile - 'Chemicals'

A protest-song (hopefully speaking the obvious), from a very classy Dutch band.


Centre Excuse - 'Joy Joy Joy'

Superb songwriting from an American duo who recently released an album 'Favourite Soul', including the great song: 'Joy Joy Joy'.


The Distant Minds - 'Blasphemy'

The English duo on top form again, hoping for more great music in 2021. The extended version of 'Blasphemy', in particular, is euphoric to say the least.


Luca dell'Orso - 'Excessive Dance'

Italo disco in the 21st Century, and brilliant electronic music all-in-one.


There were many more artists composing and recording some wonderful music in 2020. My apologies to all who(m) I haven't mentioned...

For those who've waited and waited for this to happen:
many Empress Touch tracks are finally being mixed.
Some are already completed, expect many more soon.

Again, my sincerest apologies this hasn't happened far, far sooner.
Feel free to view the Empress Touch website for further details,
including many new collaborators and tracks, such as 'A Pause For Reflection',
track #8 from the forthcoming album 'In Hope, Rather Than Expectation'.

2019 was another very good year for remixes.


The Mind Machine album
'Return To The Machine'
was superb.

But credit to the Brians Belknap & Olsen
as well
for the 16-track remix compilation:
'Remix The Machine',
feauring (arguably) THE remix of 2019,
DarwinMcD's 'We Keep Walking'.

This CD compilation
is a who's who
of electronic remixing talent
in-form right now.


2019 also saw The Frixion delivering
their most dynamic single to-date,
in 'I Cannot Play These Games'.

Manchester-based, German outfit Mordelin
also delivered a fine song 'Spirals',
as did Passion Flower Storm
with 'Adrenaline'.


Other classy musicians
to keep an eye on in 2020
are Fused,
Parralox,
Chain Complex,
Promenade Cinema
and many more...
