"Your palms are sweaty, this is not normal as you are the greatest Bboy in all of Bosconia. However the circumstances of this contest are different. The year is 2092- and the interplanetary break-dance competition is taking place. You are the only enhanced life form to have made it this far. Your opponent- pure cyborg designed to do one thing-bust a move. You step onto the dance floor and face the robot. The music begins and you start your toprock. After a few minutes your dancing upgrade components are no longer doing it.....but you have the secret weapon your opponent does not. You have the power of BODY CONTROL!"

Various “Theme Of Electro Empire“
Electro Empire, EE-001 (MP3)
The Empire strikes flashback! The new Electro Empire label kicks off with a long overdue digitally remastered re-release of this EP including the four winners of the 2003 ElectroEmpire.com theme song producers' competition. While the tracks by Gab.Gato from Italy (The Villains Inc., Dominance Electricity), Finland's Laite (X0X Records) and Split DJ out of Spain (Microciudad Recordings, Beathazard) represent the New School Electro sound of 2003, DJ Wildthing from Denmark takes it back to the roots, delivering a traditional mastermix packed with Electro classics from the 1980s. As a special bonus this re-release also features four previously unreleased competition entries by the Finnish duo Polytron (Kostamus Records), England’s Paul Blackford (Breakin', CPU, Militant Science, Twilight 76, WeMe), The Metric Brothers aka Dr. Skunkenstein from the UK & DJ D.S.K. out of China (Second To None, Electrolab Records) and once again DJ Wildthing with the second part of his Electrofunk mastermix.

Review from Boomkat -
Paul Blackford reclaims the UK Bass tag with a trio of speedy, Detroit-styled electro weapons for Central Processing Unit. Darkside fiends will be all over the Bane-samples from The Dark Knight Rises dropped over the snappy, sub-heavy electro minimalism of 'The League Of Shadows', whilst the flipside tracks come off like some Rephlexian bootybass hybrid. Solid session.
Review from Bleep -
Central Processing Unit issue another brilliant slab of electro, the next in their binary catalogue number series, courteousy of Paul Blackford. Title track ‘The League Of Shadows’ meshes feather-light drum patterns recalling Drexciya with squelching acid bass and an unsettling vocoded sample in a way which feels classic without being clichéd. Elsewhere on ‘Proteus’ and ‘Robotix’ it is Blackford’s continued deftness of touch which lifts the EP from mere nostalgia, with vintage electro drums feeling weightless and skittering around like IDM at its finest.

WIDE Records return with two new Bass tracks from the legendary Debasser. Having made his way into the sets of DJs Richie Hawtin, Dave Clarke, Andrew Weatherall and Luke Slater with sub heavy classics “Fat Girls”, “Dark Smile” and “Quite Erotic”, Debasser is back with remixes from Mark Archer and Paul Blackford.
“Thinking Of You” is a heavy bass booze session narrated by random voice messages awaiting their round of Grandpa’s Medicine. The remixes include a raw acid house remix from Altern-8′s Mark Archer and an electro bass over-crank from Egham’s finest, Paul Blackford.
