EMPIRE STATE HUMAN NEWS


Our October trip to New York was a tremendous success, and we were thrilled with such a warm audience response to the ESH set-list at the AlbionBatcave. Thanks again to DJ Cesar for handling the arrangements for our US debut (BTW We’d like to encourage everyone to check out Cesar’s new club DETOUR, whenever you get the chance).
It was great to finally meet our good friend John Giacobello, and also John Richards (Ninthwave Records) & Zero G, after our gig. Special thanks to Larry Tee for his supportive compliments on our music, before we flew out from Dublin.

As promised to those of you who requested our NY set-list, here it is:

01 ADRENALIN
02 LITTLE ALFIE
03 WE ARE INDUSTRY

A number of positive reviews for MUSIC FOR HUMANS are currently on-line throughout the WWW, here is one of our favourites so far, written by Maurizio Pustianaz’s www.chaindlk.net

Category: Synth Pop / Electro Pop / Synth-Electronica October 12 2002

Artist: EMPIRE STATE HUMAN [casser@gofree.indigo.ie]
Title: Music For Humans
Format: CD EP
Label: Pur Zynth [kaleido@purzynth.com]

This has been a fantastic year for Empire State Human. They released different albums (see our interview, you lazy ones...), did some gigs in the States for the first time and most important of all, they are getting more and more attention and I assure you that they deserve everything they achieved because they are talented and kind. It has been also a pleasure to see a Mexican label (Hi, Oscar...) doing everything possible to release good stuff with this CD and with Nexus 8, which also remixed for this CD "Night Flight". MUSIC FOR HUMANS as the previous release, "Pop Robot", contains high enjoyable synthpop, with six brand new songs (along with those you can find a new version of "Night Flight", a remix of "Shoot The Breeze" and the mentioned "Night Flight N8 Future Light Dub"), which are melodically and rhythmically involving. The tracks goes to the fantastic potential hit (damn the charts which doesn't realize how fantastic this music is) "Shoot The Breeze" to the darker "Das Kapitol" (which seems an intriguing electro kraut track) passing through "Scalper", "The Plutocrats" and other five. It's enough to tell you that I love their music? Don't you think there should be a reason?
