"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.
