Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Septembre

A lot of exciting things are happening this month, Hear No Evil continues to lock in clients, EMPT did over 2 Terabytes of traffic last month which is flat out ridiculous for this underground baby, and moves are being made on a daily to keep things in motion – We get’s busy ya’ll. On top of all that I woke up not too long ago to work on this mixtape and I was in pure delight when I finally got to listen to this months LMDM. Steph and I call ourselves twins when it comes to music and the song selection, vibe, energy and good times represented in this tape couldn’t make that little inside joke more true. To put it simply, she killed it. All the haters who showed up last month, this tape is going to be tough to deal with so…

Don’t hold on too long cause that’s how them stories start out, and all the girls that played me eat your mother fucking heart out…- Drake (Unforgettable)

All the other mixtape makers who’ve followed our blueprint, we’re flattered but remember…

I’m We the best at, you know I ain’t no apprentice to this
Me and my ni%&a# we invented the shit
I
We came into the business with this, The Originator, none greater
Jaz Steph-O finish this shit…” – Jay-Z (Jigga What, Jigga Who)

“There are a ton of amazing new indie and electro acts out right now. Lefse Records and Arcade Sound are two labels I always watch closely because they just seem to know how to pick em.

This month’s LMDM highlights a lot of new breakouts including Brooklyn based Bronze (unsigned), San Francisco’sBlackbird Blackbird (Arcade Sound) and Dominant Legs (Lefse Records), Cleveland’s Cloud Nothings (Old Flame Records), 19 year old Brooklyn based Oberhofer (7″ out on InSound now), Hamburg’s Dirty Disco Youth (Dim Mak) and Chicago’s My Gold Mask (unsigned). And with summer (sigh) over, these artists give us a lot to look forward to with a breath of fresh air in their respective indie and electro genres. Go get your hands on as much of their stuff as you can, support them and buy their EP’s/albums.” -The O.RI.GI.NA.TOR

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Mai

They say time flies when you’re having fun, I guess that why it wasn’t till last week that I realized it’s been a whole year since Steph started the Le Miel du Mois series, wow. We’re getting a lot of new visitors lately so if you’re new to EMPT I recommend you to to the LMDM page and start right back at the very first installment of this series and work your way up to this months. Every tape has stands on it’s own and till this day I’ve never been able to pick a favorite and this month is no different. I know this is my site but I’m probably the biggest fan of this mixtape and since this is a big occasion and all I’d like to thank Steph for gracing us with such great music and taste.

You are appreciated” – Tupac

We’ll be announcing the official LMDM one year anniversary party soon so stay tuned…

Le Miel du Mois: Mai

This months LMDM is particularly special because it marks the one year anniversary for LMDM. The numbers of listeners streaming and downloading keeps growing each month and we hope every mixtape is like a special little present you cant wait to open every first of the month. This month’s tape is mostly dance tracks, my favorite. I like anything fast and loud that I can dance to and I hope you will agree that most of these get that job done. It finally feels like spring, and LMDM’s summer ahead looks danceably and rockingly amazing. Enjoy.
