Kings of Convenience – I Don’t Know What I Can Save You From (Röyksopp Remix)

Every so often, a song comes along that lodges itself not only in your ear, but in your mind. You relate to it, but aren’t sure why. Is it the wistful lyricism, or the hollow acoustics reminiscent of grandfather’s guitar? The puckering bass line, tripping through a bath of whirring starsplashes…it becomes the soundtrack your […]

Moby – Dream About Me (Booka Shade Remix)

My father dreams of flying, circling with gulls among the billowing sails of the clipper ships pulling into harbor. He recounts his reverie in giddy excitement over a cup of coffee, his hair still tousled from the whipping wind. My sister dreams of a haircut undesired. “You’ll need to cut it all off if you […]

The Presets – Ghosts

Australia has been hot (accidental pun alert) for the past few years, sending a wave of artists across the blogosphere and into festival lineups the world over:Tame Impala, Empire of the Sun, Gotye, Nick Cave and more. The distinguishing factor that unites Aussi exports is “uniqueness.” These bands all sound different from anything else in […]

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” […]

Grumby – Mt. Fuji

                            It’s that break your neck shit that always stays with you. These are the beats that transcend the musical space and become something physical that exists with you. It sits next to you, jams with you, intermingles with the very depths […]

EMPT Presents: French Press, Vol. 1

Artwork by Evelyn Wilroy The idea for the French Press playlist series was a simple one. Create a playlist for a blog with a french name with the word French in it. Voila, the French Press series. Ironically, I’ve never used a French Press to make coffee, but I’ve heard great things, so I’ve stolen […]

EMPT Presents Indaba Music Weekly: Dirare – Anything

If there’s one thing about hip-hop, and really modern music in general, it’s that there’s a paradigm shift every few years. In fact, the cycle gets continually shorter with each large scale release. In recent years, the sound has been getting darker. Whether it’s the lo-fi, violent approach of Odd Future; the sophisticated word-smithery of […]
