Thoreau – Bronze Whale x Popeska – Imagine Ft. Tom Aspaul (Thoreau Remix)

This song reminds me of being about 19 or 20 years old and partying at the Rockstar mansion in Los Angeles. My days of clubbing and partying like that are way over, unless of course someone invites me on a special Vegas trip or something similar then I might just have to say YES!  I like to live a life of YES but I think as you grow up a world of saying YES to everything can get pretty complicated.  So now a days I like to “imagine” what it might be like to say yes to everything, do everything sexy smile that comes my way, to every party invite, every adventure.  Wouldn’t that be nice?!

I have to actually remind myself that I need to spend less time imagining and more time doing, doing all of the things my little heart desires.  I don’t believe that there should be anything in this world that holds you back but I think sometimes we all get stuck in the moments of our “priorities.”  I put the word priorities in quotes because sometimes we really just need to rearrange about every few weeks or so before we get so stuck in a routine that our imaginations get lost in the consistencies of life, and that’s no fun!

I am going to put this one on repeat and start living in my imaginations and making them reality, enjoy!

PHANTOGRAM – You Don’t Get Me High Anymore (A-Trak Remix) [feat. Joey Purp]

I’ve been a running around a chicken with their head cut off since I have been back in NYC, I mean that’s the NYC lifestyle so I didn’t expect anything less or any relaxation once I got here.  It’s been amazing to be back, back on the grind, back blazin’ trails with aggressive hardworking artists such as myself.  That’s why I love it here, people don’t stop whether they are working or playing, they just don’t stop, “sleep when you are dead”, I love that and you will probably hear me say it a lot because once you become an adult with conviction it should be a saying that you live by… And die by!

You don’t get me high anymore.”

I am relating to this a lot in terms of the things that have changed in my life.  I was only away from NYC for 7 months, but being away for that amount of time I think I was able to look at NYC from a different perspective, decide who I really wanted in my life when I got back, who was there for me, who wasn’t.  Things change a lot when you have kids, it’s an eye opener in terms of the way your friends react towards you, how your lifestyle has to change a bit.  Don’t get me wrong I love the way my life has changed, I love all of the challenges and learning experiences but it is definitely crazy how your whole world can flip and you are rearranging EVERYTHING!  Certain things, certain people, they just don’t get me high anymore…

I needed a good feel good Summer track to get me ready for the weekend in the Hamptons, this one got me in the mood so press play and maybe I will see some of you out there! xx

Timaya & Electric Bodega – I Like The Way (Electric Bodega Remix)

This track brings me right back to trips I have taken to the Bahamas and the Dominican Republic.  Two places I would love to be taking my daughter this summer if Zika wasn’t such a risk. BUMMER!  Hopefully they get a handle in that shit quick so I can go jetsetting ASAP with the little mini me!  I have been in Seattle the past few months and it’s literally been the rainiest Fall and Winter I have ever experienced.  I grew up here until Junior High and it was never this bad so you all can stop your “all it does is rain in Seattle” eye rolls, ya I see you!!

I cannot stop listening to this track this morning.  Timaya & Electric Bodega transport me to the future, just a couple months from now into Summer, I think we are all ready for it, for rays of sunshine, long weekends, outdoor BBQ’s and pool parties, brunches and rooftop shenanigans.  Ya all that stuff that we long for, well unless you live in Cali, but no offense I don’t want all that stuff year long, I want to be able to miss it because then it’s just that much more special and inviting when it’s all finally here.

All I can do is turn up the heat in my house, take off my clothes and dance carelessly until the evening festivities while I pretend I am somewhere else, do the same, enjoy!

EMPT Premier: Lil Uzi Vert – You Was Right (Lauren Sanderson Cover) [Launch Kontrol Remix]

Really excited to be the first to premier this one.  A fantastic twist on the original, cover/remix with beautiful vocals by Lauren Sanderson.  When I first started to listen I was immediately taken by the vocals but then the unexpected twist happens about 38 seconds thru and you take yourself from a euphoric day at the beach straight to the club, exactly the way I would want my weekend to go.  This track gives you all of those nice energies that you need and want, the slow and the fast, kind of like sex right!?  Sometimes you want it slow and sweet and then you want to change positions in the blink of an eye and speed things up a bit then slow down again to have the ultimate climax! Have I got your thoughts going in a certain direction?  GOOD, I hope so because this is exactly what this track is suppose to do for you, oil up your engine because it’s already Friday, unbelievable!

I like the unexpected, that is kind of the way my life has been the last couple of years, all good unexpected things have been happening.  I think that’s the way life is when you just let the cards fall where they want to.  When you get a good hand you hold onto it and move on to the next game.  I am really digging the vibe to this track right now, it’s a good start to the weekend and a reminder that you gotta keep changing up your rhythm in order to experience the world the way it was meant to be experienced.

Press play and enjoy!

A Flock Of Seagulls – The More You Live The More You Love (Rhythm Scholar Starwave Remix)

I have definitely been needing my old school jams lately, so when I heard A Flock of Seagulls with a dope mix on it, I was like fuck yes thank you!  I was born in the 80’s, so I guess some would argue that I was more or less influenced by the 90’s but I always win this argument when I let everyone know that I have a brother who is almost 10 years older and therefor I was influenced by his tastes while living in the same household together.  I am just drawn to how upbeat everything was about the 80’s, everything from the music, the movies, and even the clothes were like, BOOM, in your face with just a whole lot of positive vibes.  Wish I could say the same for the day and age we live in now but fuck it right, at least there are great times to reminisce upon.  Knowing that once upon a time things really were pretty awesome should give us all hope that they can be awesome again.

There are a ton of video game sounds in this track that I am sure if you are as up on your old school jams as I am you can spot.  We all played video games back in the 80’s and 90’s even if you weren’t a video game head, I think they were just less intense, easier for more people to grasp.  I am really feelin’ this jam for it’s nostalgia that it fills me up with and yet doing something unique with some new production to spruce it up for millennium babies.

The more you live, the more you love.” #Truefuckingstory!

This jam is good for anyone even if you don’t remember this track, press play and enjoy your Tuesday! xx

Neil Thomas – Home (John James & Nick Peters Remix)

So many say “live in the present”, but I like to think about the future, I think it’s important, especially when you are an adult that aspires to do really big things for your life and your family.  I’ve had my mind on NY lately, I had to step away for a few months to realize it’s the place that I love, like taking a break from a relationship that needs a breather.  NY is one of the most unique places in the world in my opinion, it’s a place where dreams come true for many from all over, it’s diverse, it moves fast and has everything one could desire.  Sometimes you have to step away from a place and even people, that you love so much, to see it all from a distance, to miss it all, and if you don’t miss it, you never loved it/them.  Sometimes you just need to leave home to realize that’s where you belong.

This track has me dreaming about Summer, about the city and so much excitement that is taking place in the near future.  It’s a beautiful melodic track that I can also dance too, win win in my book!  I feel like I am cruising with this one, the guitar with the bass and vocals is just all perfectly designed.  I would play this at a daytime EMPT brunch party this Summer with some sexy cocktails and sexy people ready to let loose and dream about the amazing future with me, I still think this world is an amazing place regardless of the chaos.

Hey Violet – Guys My Age (Prince Fox Remix)

Guys my age don’t know how to treat me..”

Fuck those lyrics definitely hit close to home.  Chivalry is not dead! Repeat CHIVALRY IS NOT DEAD.  Ya we live in a time where women want to be treated as equals but I think men take that as, ok well I can treat her like one of my boys.  Maybe we aren’t getting the message across clearly, it’s possible and I’m not denying that but for the majority of us ladies I think we enjoy having the door opened for us, maybe paying for drinks and dinner here and there and throwing your sweater down on that mud puddle so we don’t have to get our new fancy heels dirty 😉  Listen babe, you pay for dinner tomorrow night and I’ll make you the best sandwich you have ever had in your life and maybe even do your laundry (FYI I actually enjoy doing laundry to all the single bachelors out there)!

I’ve spent the last decade settling for less than what I deserve because I am a loyal creature, I am a rare breed of women that is most definitely taken for granted and I know this.  I want to fit in with the boys but I also want to be treated like a lady, I am great at taking care of myself but I don’t want that to be taken as I don’t want to be taken care of as well.  I guess sometimes there are mixed messages in this behavior and it’s important to give good communication.  Most of us aren’t mind readers, no matter how well you know a person don’t make that an excuse for not verbally communicating what you want and what you deserve because you think the other person knows or should know exactly what you are thinking and this goes for not only the ladies but the men too.

This track is a banger, I am not even going out this weekend but I feel like I am out already just listening to this over and over again, I love that energy you get from music.  I love when I am looking through hundreds of submissions and I find a diamond, cuz I mean you know they are a girls best friend, men take note!  This remix just dropped yesterday and the anticipation to post it has been making my veins throb.  SO here you go, hope this kicks up your energy a few notches for your Saturday festivities, ladies I hope you get that door opened for you tonight and men I hope you get that sandwich tomorrow morning from your lady when you are nursing that hangover!

ATCQ – Electric Relaxation (T4PES X Nick AM Edit)

Don’t you hate it when something really exciting happens and you aren’t allowed to talk about it.  These are all things I will be able to share in the near future, I don’t like surprises but that’s the way it goes sometimes. Fuck it’s like the moment I turned 30 and things just started falling into place.  20’s were the “make mistakes but make sure you are also working hard at whatever it is you love to do.”  Get your heart broken, clean up the mess, pick yourself back up and do it all again until you hit 30 if you don’t have yourself more put together by then, please email me personally.  That’s some partial advice to those of you in your 20’s, don’t stress too hard just make sure you aren’t totally wasting your time, it’s the time in your life where you ARE a grown up (unless you are still living at your parents place) but you can still make mistakes and figure out who you really are.  I figured out I am one badass, strong, loyal, capable female, and there were a lot of hating, jealous, toxic humans trying to get in my way and put out my fire.  “Oh fuck no homie, I don’t play like that homie, move right along now homie and as I watch you kick that dust in your eye, while you’re pretending not to cry, but you know I am oh so high..You can’t help it.”  That was a little something I made up for you all on the spot, you’re welcome!

I’ve been excited to post this mix, a little Tribe with a good weekend dance feel, I’m diggin it.  Any type of old school feel mixed with some new school sounds is right up my alley.  Press play and do you friends, make it all count, even the shitty stuff!

Mozambo & Basic Tape – Bright Side (ft. Julia Church)[RYI Remix]

You’ve gotta keep on fighting

You want to bring this on You’ve gotta keep on going

Shout it when the beat is on

Make the best with what you get

Take it all and fuck the rest

Get your shit together

Cheer up smoke a cigarette

You know this feeling

When the world stops turning

Focus on the the bright side

Life can make you bitter

But you’ll wake up stronger

So focus on the bright side

Lost forever out of sight Forget the sadness of your nights

Breath deeper than ever Stand up take another chance.”

Sometimes the lyrics say everything you wanted to say. “Focus on the bright side.”  I think this is a beautiful message for everyone right now.  Easier said then done, but I can tell you all from personal experience of dealing with a lot of shit in my life and a lot of shitty disappointing people that you can make the best of everything and be incredibly happy as I am right here right now.  Yes that is the life coach talking in me so if you don’t believe it’s possible hit me up personally and I will prove it to you!

Clicking through our submissions I couldn’t have been happier to find this gem, it’s saying everything that needs to be said for all of us in this moment.  Another sweet track coming to you straight from Amsterdam, seriously what is in the water over there because the music is on point and the vibes are on a deep and relevant level.

Keep your heads up, press play!

Alexx Mack – Whatever I Want (BRADLEY ALLAN REMIX)

I keep having these vivid dreams. He is always tall, very strong, not just in physic, but his voice and touch.  He treats me like a queen and normally when I have dreams like this I push away but lately I am more confident in what I want, so now in these dreams I welcome this tall stranger, whom I seem to know very well in my dreams.  You are probably already thinking really erotic thoughts before I have gone any further into this and yes some of these dreams are sexual but they are much more than that.  This isn’t porn this is true love, the way this person adores me in these dreams is something I haven’t experienced in a very long time, sadly.  I have always been one to love very passionately, but I guess you could say I spent my 20’s getting the short end of the stick in the love department, I was taken for granted, you live and you learn.  I have spent almost the last 2 years pushed away from love or even wanting it, focusing everything I have on my daughter, the truest love I have ever known, my work and of course family.  I can only assume that these recent reoccurring dreams mean that maybe I am ready for love, a partner in crime, someone to share my craving for adventure and to be a father figure and a man my little bear can look up too.  Thankfully there is no desperation in my loins, desperation leads to disappointment, but every now and then dreams do come true and a girl can dream can’t she…wink wink!

This track would probably be on the soundtrack to my dreams of my strange but beautiful new love affair, I really like the original, but if you know me then you know I am a sucker for a good remix which Bradley Allan does so well.  Back in the day on EMPT I posted a lot of Marina & The Diamonds tracks and this reminds me in production and lyrics.  Great sound, feels good and all I want these days are things that feel oh so good.  Press play and enjoy my loves!
