Description

Alec Empire - Bass Terror

In 1992 Alec Empire and Carl Crack started a sound system called Bass Terror. About a handful of other DJs joined right away. They promoted the first ever purist jungle and breakcore raves outside the United Kingdom. In Berlin squads and run down warehouses a new sound was developed. Journalists couldn't compare it to rave or breakbeat anylonger. A new term was chosen: Breakcore.

The sound was harder, faster and way louder than its UK prototype. One other significant difference: Bass Terror was highly charged political with its Anti-Nazi and Anti-Racist slogans and artwork. Empire and Crack saw the extreme right wing having a rising influence on the German techno scene. Bass Terror was formed as a movement of resistance. One of the first tracks released was called "Hetzjagd auf Nazis!" (German for "Hunt Down And Kill The Nazis").

Frankfurt based techno label Force Inc. Music Works started a sublabel called Riot Beats to give this sound a new push and platform. A year later Alec Empire would start Digital Hardcore Recordings (1994).

The original EP series were only released on vinyl in the years 1992/93. When Dutch DJ Tiesto sampled the track "SuEcide" 2 years ago, many DJs started searching for Alec's original version on 12" vinyl. "SuEcide" remains a classic of the early more Detroit influenced techno genre (and stands out from the other Bass Terror tracks).

Now 15 years later, Alec Empire is about to re-release these tracks for the first time in digital remastered format - plus previously unreleased tracks from that era!"
