Spin Doctors – Two Princess (G Templeton & Branded James Remix)

Children of the early 80’s that were –or so we believed– at our prime during the 90’s remember quite vividly the Spin Doctor’s album Pocket Full of Kryptonite and it’s famous hit single Two Princess. I will not go into details about the things I was trying to do to that song — many times. […]

Soul II Soul – Back To Life (Follow Me Remix)

Being a child of the 80’s who really lived the 90’s I can attest to how popular and hard hittin’ Back To Life (or how it was popularly known: However Do You Want Me). It seems the New York duo of Follow Me want to solidify themselves as the kings of soulful R&B classics remixes. […]

Outkast – Ms. Jackson (Jean Tonique Remix)

When Outkast unleashed “Ms. Jackson” on the world in January of 2001, the song immediately became a cross-over smash hit. You couldn’t turn on the radio or TV–Z100 or Hot97, MTV or BET–without hearing or seeing Andre 3000 and Big Boi lay the truth down. “Ms. Jackson” hits such a widespread nerve cause it’s a simple song that […]

Kate Bush – Running Up That Hill (Louis La Roche Remix)

The 1985 original version of this song is quite popular and anyone that has heard it remembers the emotion that it carries which made it a chart-topper back then. 22 years later Placebo covers the original on their album Sleeping With Ghosts but this time they take it down a notch with their downtempo rendition. […]

TLC – Unpretty (Follow Me Remix)

In 1999 TLC released their chart topping hit Unpretty to much acclaim, not only for it’s R&B almost mainstream pop status but for it’s message. Those who lived that decade know well plastic surgery and alike are much more socially accepted today than they were back then. Anyway, once a while comes someone out of […]

Chromatics – Into The Black (Voxels Remix)

It’s very hard to top a classic such as Neil Young‘s rock anthem Into The Black but what Chromatics did to it and then Voxels on the cover… This is just nothing short of amazing. Here’s the thing. I believe the original is very good, but it is only when you take it down a notch […]

EMPT Classics: Tame Impala – Solitude Is Bliss

Great songs are timeless, they resonate regardless of the time, place or people you hear it with. Tame Impalas Solitude is Bliss is one of those songs. Recently I’ve fallen in love with the art of mastery, if you’ve seen that Jiro Dreams of Sushi documentary you’ll know what I’m talking about. My relationship with […]

The Pharcyde – Runnin (Philipians RMX Instrumental)

I don’t know a ton about The Pharcyde but I do know that every time I find myself listening to them, good vibes are immediately felt. Cut along the same cloth as A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul, it’s soulful Hip Hop at its finest, blending sounds of the new and the old in all the right […]

Ultimate Kaos – Casanova (Mickey Re-Work)

  I recently read a quote from Justice regarding remixes, which the Frenchmen are apparently not too fond of. They stated that “when a song is already good, we can only make it worse.” While there’s some truth to that statement (see: the “Call Me Maybe” remix package), on a broad terms, I couldn’t disagree more. […]

Falcon Punch – Whenever You Call Me

The first time I was introduced to the sultry sound of Falcon Punch was around a year ago right here at EMPT, when I ran into his dynamite debut single “Where You’ll Stay.” I love when things come full circle, and when I was sent this track a little while a back by FP, it […]
