Et Musique Pour Tous Presents: Les Auteurs — Samantha Sanders

Welcome to another installment of Et Musique Pour Tous Presents: Les Auteurs. I took me a while to decide on a theme, and as it goes, my theme is a non-theme! I simply want to capture the ephemerality of moods. The relationship between mood and music is important to me, and I’m a big proponent […]

Disclosure & Friend Within – The Mechanism

At Coachella this year Lana del Rey bought us in to her fascinating world of retro futuristic glamour, Flosstradamus turned the place into an absolute zoo with their hip hop meets punk mosh put over the top style and Disclosure simply brought groove to the Space Age. Those three acts couldn’t be further apart from each other in […]

Lovebox – London 2014

I don’t know how to start this shit, yo…” It is truly an experience to walk around Victoria Park, London during Lovebox, the DJ and hip-hop festival held each summer. The line-up was enough to attract half of London, primarily the group you find in the early hours of the city’s night spots. The grounds […]

ZHU — Faded

When I look back at the best moments of my life they are mostly those nights that seemed as if they could never end. Nights filled with taxi rides, bright city lights, dancing, bar-hopping, making-out, late-night snacks, more drinking, more dancing, more making out, and a LOT of music going every single second of the […]

ParadisFM – Garde Le Pour Toi

Riches to riches. In order to propagate the current business model the matrix uses the concept of success as a tool to keep people dreaming. I.e. if you work really hard that will lead to the all the success and accomplishment you need to be happy. Similarly, the concept of retirement is used to keep us […]

Flying Lotus – Parisian Goldfish

Another brushfire belches acrid smoke into our lungs. The city stained with ash, gray as the sky. Last time fourteen young men were swept up in the blaze and killed in an instant. The town held a candle light vigil. Oxygen, in the end. Red sun setting, mirrored in flames that creep up, floor by […]

Jamie xx – All Under One Roof Raving

Hardcore will never die, but you will. On that note, Jamie xx stepped in for Benji B on BBC Radio 1Xtra last week and made for a f@#king phenomenal two hour mix featuring exclusive, unreleased material from some of the sickest producers around these days— James Blake premieres a new track at the 30 minute mark along with […]

A Tribe Called Quest – Excursions

A lot of people wonder why EMPT hasn’t rushed to become some sort of Pitchfork type deal. Business people from well-respected companies come to us with corny proposals and we turn them down. They look at the rebel kids like we don’t know what we’re doing because they don’t understand our intention. Why? First of all, it’s because we […]

Et Musique Pour Tous Presents: Les Auteurs — Ashley Jordan Lane

Whereever you go, there you’ll be.” My ex-boyfriend’s mom told me that. After four years I was leaving, and this was the message I took with me. After you leave once, it is easier to spot exits in life. Constantly trying to hop to the next place, avoiding the feeling of quicksand in the present […]

Anna Naklab – Wicked Games (Parra for Cuva Edit)

We were in a decent restaurant somewhere outside of Barcelona. It was the first time we had seen each other in 4 months. Aside from that we had only seen each other for one weekend. We met in a bar. I, an American dressed up on Halloween in London, in a bar of less interested […]
