EMPT Classic: The Oos & Ahhs – 2084

For some reason it still feels like the beginning of the week for me even though the end of the week has approached very quickly.  It’s like when I dribble a basketball and I am so fast that I end up running faster then the ball and it ends up behind me.  I am like the ball at this moment, so I needed a little pick me up to remind me that it is Thursday and the weekend has pretty much begun.  Also I want to leave you with a little piece of wisdom that I learned from Angela, a Soul Cycle instructor: “You are the average of the 5 people you hang out with the most.”  I heard this when I was younger and it didn’t resonate as much, but now it really makes much more sense, and makes you stop to think about those people and the influences/characteristics you take from those people.  So let this wise piece of wisdom resonate with you and if your feeling slowed down like me, let The Oos & Ahhs pick you back up, enjoy!

Alright, make sure you’ve paid your health insurance bills cuz here’s a handbanger that can easily break ya neck. The Oos & Ahhs homage to the classic Orwell novel is highly charged with buzzing bass, explosive synths, and dicing strings, leaving you ready to hit the gym or run from the Thought Police. With iPhones secretly tracking our every location, search engines collecting our personal data, and sattelite surveillance monitoring the planet, it seems impossible to escape the powerful presence of today’s version of the Ministry of Truth. The freedoms and luxuries gained from technology, like everything else in this world, come at a price.

They could lay bare the utmost detail of everything that you had done or said or thought; but the inner heart, whose workings were mysterious even to yourself, remained impregnable.”

When you bump 2084, I want you to feel the powerful message at the core of the instrumental: Make use of your freedom, go hard and have the time of your life. You better get to it because, trust me…

We’ll be watching you!”
