"Emperor" is the latest single to be taken from Scrimshire's highly praised third opus, "Bight", an album that exemplifies progressions made both as a singer-songwriter and producer, pushing forward from his acclaimed second album, "The Hollow".
The song kicks off with Scrimshire's trademark guitar and Stac's distinctive vocals but soon drops into low-slung beats, reminiscent of Portishead and Shadow at their best. It's a short but powerful tune, and comes complete with a trio of remixes that take it into three very distinctive places.
The mighty Stubborn Heart (One Little Indian) set the bar with what is possibly one of the finest remixes we've ever received at Wah Wah 45s. Pitching Stac's vocal down and increasing the intensity on the beats, the London duo take this tune where it's never been before and have created something of a dance floor anthem in the process.
Sought after beat monger, Kratos Himself, delivers a more horizontal version, complete with ethereal sound effects and a less urgent approach that allows the song some space to express itself.
And finally, we're very happy to include a rework from another London twosome who you're going to hear plenty more about in the coming months. Our very own Bopperson and The High Five Guy have joined forces to produce the Bopper Five Remix, which takes the track right back to early 90s Bristol with a little 2013 bass worrying thrown in for good measure.
Look out for an added bonus in the shape of a live acoustic performance of previous single "Convergent" that Scrimshire recorded for The Selector earlier this year, rounding off one extremely heavyweight package indeed!
