Here is the album description from their site:

“Alpha Pup is proud to present Only Mountain, the newest release from L.A.-based beat producer Take. His most powerful and fully realized work to date, Only Mountain serves as a complete affirmation of Take’s ten prolific years in music production. Although prominently featured on seminal releases such as From L.A. With Love and this year’s All City 10-inch, Take is poised to make the greatest impact of his career with his newest sonic creation.

From Only Mountain’s opening salvo, “Before You Think,” it is clear that Take has claimed his rightful place amongst the beat scene’s leading luminaries. A dusty off-kilter space stomp, the track lays the ground work for an album’s worth of hazy electronic textures and intergalactic breakbeats. Case in point: “Incredibright,” a no-holds-barred haymaker of astro-hop swagger. On “Implosions,” one of the albums more introspective tracks, Take drags us through a spaced out journey of low-end stabs and bit-crushed melodies.

A dense and groundbreaking work, Take’s “Only Mountain” stands as a staggering collection of gorgeously brilliant melodies and deep subharmonic bass. Truly future music towards a brighter end.”

Due to snow, NYC’s DJ Empress unable to make Respect LA (02.11)

UPDATE- 04:18pm 02.09.10: Due to the “Apocalyptic Snowstorm” that is mauling the East Coast right now, all of the flights from NYC to LA have been canceled, so unfortunately, Empress’ appearance is looking like it will be delayed until future notice. Stay tuned for updated line-up information for this week!

Los Angeles- One of my favorite ladies in the DnB world, Empress, is making a West Coast stop at LA’s weekly, Respect.

She’s been busy in the studio working with her new band in preparation for a new album & tour, but she’s going to be taking a break to come and drop some heavy business for the LA crew.

StatesideSessionsCoverI’ve had the pleasure of knowing and working with her since the early days in both of our careers and since day one, Empress has continued to push her sounds every where she goes (from being the 1st American DnB DJ to play at Movement back in ’99 to her “Stateside Sessions” tour in 2003 )  &  rocks crowds from coast to coast.

Those of you in the LA area should definitely make sure to check this one out, Empress is notorious for having exclusive dubs & her production definitely is not to be slept on- she does the damn thing ;-)
