EMPT Presents: Indaba Music Weekly – Akbo “Petrichords”

Channelling the vibe of his fellow frenchmen Daft Punk and the en vogue “big synth” sound of Kavinsky, Akbo shows us why some of the deepest house music is coming out of l’Hexagone. With a slowly filtered intro and a storm overlay that helps build the tension, Akbo artfully begins to build the song. “Petrichords” […]

EMPT Presents Indaba Music Weekly: Venkman – Martial Law

What’s with the British and their impeccable track record of forward thinking bands? From the recent emergence of Alt-J and the XX to the older mainstays of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, it makes me wonder if something’s added to the water by Parliament to foster musical creativity. Whatever the cause Venkman, an upstart […]

Daft Punk x MNDR — Motherboard (Kings & Others Remix)

Happy Friday. You’ve made it through another week, and if your’s was anything like mine, you, my friends, are in desperate need of libations. It might not yet be 7:30 AM here in New York, but I decided not to keep it chill this morning as I went about my daily ritual of coffee, shower, […]

EMPT Presents Indaba Music Weekly: Kalai – Flare

For some reason, it seems typical to me that software engineers would be avid creators of electronic. Something about the evolution of signal flow from oscillator to amplifier makes that sensical. But, what’s moor impressive to me is an engineer who’s influenced by the analog subtleties that have made Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories the […]

Giorgio Moroder vs MB Disco — From Here To Eternity (Aeroplane Remix)

Giorgio has been the topic of conversation in some circles around me ever since Daft Punk released their latest creation: Random Access Memories.  Mainly because of his very long and superbly influential discography, but more so because a simple comment made on the album: once you free your mind about a concept of harmony and music […]

Daft Punk — Doin’ It Right (feat. Panda Bear) The Golden Pony Remix

Following trends is something that most of us do whether we have a choice or not.  Unless those fresh pair of new sneakers were handmade and designed by you, and, they are the only pair in existence—the truth is that you are a follower too.  It doesn’t end or start there, but the overall concept […]

Daft Punk – Get Lucky

Well well well, what a gift from the music gods this was.  Apparently I thought I was special yesterday when I received the new Daft Punk “Random Access Memories” album in an email, but of course all you music heads were right there with me.  It’s amazing isn’t it, how we think and try so hard not […]

EMPT Presents – Wet Dreams #1 by Barry Poppins

We all want so much man, over achievement and extreme ambition are glorified and admired almost universally these days but have you ever stopped to ask why?… Hustle, hustle, hustle. Grind, grind, grind. Why does everyone got hustle on their mind?” MIA was something else back then, I remember first hearing that hook and questioning […]

Paul – Born To Love

If you attached the Daft Punk name to an extremely generic song of debatable quality would people go ape shit over it? Yes. Because of the internet and stuff, presentation often trumps legitimacy. While “Emphazed” is fun, I sincerely doubt that it’s Daft Punk–although it does sound somewhat Tron-y, I would expect more from the robots […]
