ZHU — Faded

When I look back at the best moments of my life they are mostly those nights that seemed as if they could never end. Nights filled with taxi rides, bright city lights, dancing, bar-hopping, making-out, late-night snacks, more drinking, more dancing, more making out, and a LOT of music going every single second of the […]

ParadisFM – Garde Le Pour Toi

Riches to riches. In order to propagate the current business model the matrix uses the concept of success as a tool to keep people dreaming. I.e. if you work really hard that will lead to the all the success and accomplishment you need to be happy. Similarly, the concept of retirement is used to keep us […]

Flying Lotus – Parisian Goldfish

Another brushfire belches acrid smoke into our lungs. The city stained with ash, gray as the sky. Last time fourteen young men were swept up in the blaze and killed in an instant. The town held a candle light vigil. Oxygen, in the end. Red sun setting, mirrored in flames that creep up, floor by […]

Jamie xx – All Under One Roof Raving

Hardcore will never die, but you will. On that note, Jamie xx stepped in for Benji B on BBC Radio 1Xtra last week and made for a f@#king phenomenal two hour mix featuring exclusive, unreleased material from some of the sickest producers around these days— James Blake premieres a new track at the 30 minute mark along with […]

A Tribe Called Quest – Excursions

A lot of people wonder why EMPT hasn’t rushed to become some sort of Pitchfork type deal. Business people from well-respected companies come to us with corny proposals and we turn them down. They look at the rebel kids like we don’t know what we’re doing because they don’t understand our intention. Why? First of all, it’s because we […]

Et Musique Pour Tous Presents: Les Auteurs — Ashley Jordan Lane

Whereever you go, there you’ll be.” My ex-boyfriend’s mom told me that. After four years I was leaving, and this was the message I took with me. After you leave once, it is easier to spot exits in life. Constantly trying to hop to the next place, avoiding the feeling of quicksand in the present […]

Anna Naklab – Wicked Games (Parra for Cuva Edit)

We were in a decent restaurant somewhere outside of Barcelona. It was the first time we had seen each other in 4 months. Aside from that we had only seen each other for one weekend. We met in a bar. I, an American dressed up on Halloween in London, in a bar of less interested […]

Fabolous — Pachangas

La Marina was mine way before Fabolous, Jay & Bey, or Leo DiCaprio had an inkling of what it would be, but then again, many places from LES to Dyckman have been that way. Actually, many places from East Williamsburg (Bushwick) all the way over to the West Coast have been that way in my […]

KRS One – Sound of Da Police

Law enforcement has existed for thousands of years. From the Prefects of ancient China, Athenian public slaves, and Roman vigils, to today’s beat cops, highway patrol and paramilitary police, these bodies have occupied a cultural niche unlike any other. Both required and reviled, the law is ever present across the world. In the USA and […]

Theophilus London – No Particular One

The only thing that matters to me at this point is family. The unconditional, deep love I have for my brother, my sister and my parents is the feeling I want to have with anyone who gets to spend more than 20 minutes with me outside of a professional environment… If I could be born […]
