EMPT Classic: Nancy Sinatra – You Only Live Twice

Vintage EMPT. As you can see we haven’t changed much, we’re still those divergent kids who can’t be placed, still pushing the limits, testing things, exploring, traveling and challenging ourselves, unlearning and growing. James Bond had a big impact on me for so many reasons. The vintage Bond films are aesthetically wonderful in how they […]

Retro Culture – Weekend

Weekends are precious to me, a young 20-something “professional” who works the traditional 9-5 office job. I finally understand what “living for the weekend” means! I cram most of my life into those 8 days a month, sometimes sacrificing a vacation day in order to extend a weekend trip. Who really wants to fly to […]

Rustie – Attak (Featuring Danny Brown)

I feel the need to apologise. Every Wednesday (being my day to write) has been a struggle and release. I realise that many people come to the site to take a break and read through some little thoughts or big thoughts, insight on music, etc. But I use it as a release too. Whatever I […]

The Weeknd — Devil May Cry (Fabich & Ferdinand Weber Edit)

There is something strange about the way people still follow the masses these days. This is not because they haven’t always followed the masses that it seems strange to me, but because nowadays we have more access to real-time information than ever, and maybe because by now we should be able to tell what is really, […]

Mother – Easy

Life isn’t easy. Is that statement even relevant anymore? At this very moment, I can go downstairs (I’m in Manhattan) and order a  juice containing some of the most nutritious vegetables in existence. All I have to do is tell the clerk what I want and he’ll make it or it’s already made, it’s that […]

Freestylers – Signs ft. Tenor Fly and Spanner Banner

The wonders of the Internet mean you’re reading this even though I’m far away, deep in the woods with no connection. It’s about fucking time. I really wish someone would have told me as a kid that vacation isn’t a right. There’s a difference between a vacation and a trip. On a trip, you’re waking […]

James Blake – Life Round Here (Sh?m Bootleg Remix)

The sweepy synths on this track got me swooning. So luscious. So sinister. I am sold. To remix a James Blake track and actually do it well takes not only courage but skill; therefore I’ve got mad respect for Sh?m [Pronounced: Shem-Question-Mark]. Who is he? I don’t know. Maybe some kind of magician. I just can’t help but be completely captivated by […]

Le Youth – C O O L (Lane 8 Remix)

As long as you’re cool, right here is where you wanna be These are the only lyrics in Lane 8‘s take on Le Youth’s “C O O L”. This is the type of music I can really jam to. It’s simple and enjoyable. It brings me to a happy, calm place- a place in which I don’t have to […]

Dee Edwards – (I Can) Deal With That

Sometimes it is necessary to take a break. There was a point yesterday where I was siting at work (yes, we work in offices with horrible fluorescent lighting and mandatory skirts too) and nearly cried when I got another request for another project due two days before I ever saw it. It is these times […]

Dylan n’ Krems — City Lights

Some people are put on this planet for the rest of us to know that something bigger than anything we can see exists out there beyond where the stars and planets and galaxies live. They are put on our planet to illustrate that beautiful energy trumps everything, and so when we live through their deaths […]
