Oliver vs. Ellie Goulding – Control the Lights (Chris Carter Edit)

There is a sound to summer, and it is sweet. It’s the sound of a jolly homeless man singing “Let It Be” in the streets, the ripple of conversations heard outdoors as you wonder how everyone is able to brunch everyday of the week. It’s outdoor seating for restaurants, and skater dudes with cool tricks. It’s a crew of beautiful decked out men and women walking the streets of your neighborhood with glitter and colors, boom box in hand and reggae in ears.

Maybe it was after all of those awesome things today that I came across this and felt, yes. This is what summer is about. I’m thrilled to bring it to you from EMPT and I’m really excited for you guys to embark on summer sound journeys. The thing about listening to music in the warm weather is that no matter how much you like or dislike the weather, the sun is out. So outside, your face is really happy about the fact that it’s light out, and your ears are reacting to a sound (whether you like it or not) that kind of equates to what’s going on with the sun. Everything is connected.

So my kitten is now playing with the space fan in my bedroom because it’s that kind of weather and he’s that kind of cat, and everything is adorable. Chris Carter has done some beautiful work in terms of remixes and edits, so you won’t be surprised that this is just as fun and just as happy. I’m going to sleep and I’m leaving you guys with this work of fun.

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros – Man On Fire (Chris Carter Rework)

You might be asking yourselves why this track is being posted again, but ask no more questions because you shall see my friends.  We have had the pleasure of finding this rare rework of Man On Fire, by Chris Carter in an email yesterday.  For those of you who don’t know who Chris Carter is, he is quite the talent, spreading his gifts all over the Los Angeles community as a disc jockey as well as a film/music producer, the frontman with partner Simon Lewicki from Jump Jump Dance Dance, and now remixing under his own name!   All you readers around the world tuning into EMPT get to vibe out to this rare gem we have here for you today, its like Christmas in Summer time!

First coming together over a shared love of synthesizers, 
Australian culture and sweaty dance floors, Carter and Lewicki developed the blueprint of the Jump Jump Dance Dance sound, exploring and tweaking the happy medium between dance and rock music. The duo 
elevated themselves above the electro scene by turning JJDD into a truly organic 
live band, where instantaneous guitar riffs collide with towering synths and club energy.”

Chris definitely gives this track his own flavor that is so specific and upbeat.  If you don’t know what I am talking about then go get educated and check out Chris and his man Simon’s work, I promise you will be hooked! And make sure to add Chris on Soundcloud to get the jump on his new work.

And if you haven’t noticed the weekend is right here, Holy S*&t right!??  So what better way to start it then to be able to show all your friends how cool you are that you snagged this new and very exclusive gem from EMPT.  Your Welcome, enjoy!
