George Maple – Talk Talk

Now here’s something nice and refreshing: a female vocalist wistfully singing meaningful lyrics accompanied by catchy synth, instrumentals, and upbeat percussion throughout. I’m a big fan of this category of music.. that along the lines of Jesse Ware and La Roux. I have so much respect for these women. I’m not sure how much of my fancy toward […]

Emoh Instead – Why Can’t You (Say So…)

At first I didn’t know what to think of Emoh Instead’s “Why Can’t You (Say So…)”. At first, you’re exposed to a voice manipulated to become low-pitched and slow-tempoed, accompanied by a highly contrasting woman’s soprano whining in the background. Quickly thereafter, the mood is flipped as trappy horns hit you right in the face. […]

Seekae – Test & Recognise (Flume Re-Work)

We must “be” before we can “do” and we can “do” only to the extent that we “are,” and what we “are” depends upon what we “think.” We cannot express powers that we do not possess. The only way by which we may secure possession of power is to become conscious of power, and we […]

Flume – The Greatest View (Feat. Isabella Manfredi)

If I got to choose a coast I got to choose the East I live out there, so don’t go there But that don’t mean a ni%$@ can’t rest in the West See some nice breast in the West” – Biggie Two and a half years ago I found out what it’s like to be […]

New Navy – Zimbabwe (Flume Remix)  

When we last heard from New Navy, the Aussies were covering Telepopmusik’s “Breath.” This time, the boys get a rework from compatriot Flume, who has blown up considerably since I first saw him with twenty other people in the basement of Cake Shop (NYC) last year. Here, Flume exhibits a lighter touch than usual, turning […]

EMPT Presents: Le Miel du Mois Decembre Best of 2013

I can’t lie, I’ve had this tape since mid December. I did have an extremely busy end of the year and going back to NYC for two weeks didn’t exactly help my productivity but that really has nothing to do with it. In fact this tape has been complete since Steph first sent it over. […]

Flume & Chet Faker – This Song Is Not About A Girl

Alittle bit disco paired with the vocals reminiscent of a rock song from the ’90s, this song is on repeat at the moment. Just one of the songs, which was released on the highly anticipated collaborative album from two of my favorites from down under. This song is powerful with a dance beat and an […]

Flume & Chet Faker – Drop The Game

Sick track. Dope production. I’m pretty much obsessed. “I’ve been seeing all, I’ve been seeing your soul Give me things that I wanted to know Tell me things that you’ve done.”   Chet Faker wrote to NPR about Drop the Game… in his very own words, “Everyone has these notions of what someone else wants, and […]

Flume – Intro (Featuring Stalley)

I cannot stress the appeal of this man enough. Amazing producer and releasing work which is pushing the envelope for symphonic production and collaboration. Flume, or Harley Streten, has worked with the likes of Disclosure and Ta-ku this past year and has continued to release collaborative and solo work that makes us move and dance […]

Steph Lund: Ruckus Rhythms Interview

We’ve come a long long way together, through the hard times and the good. I have celebrate you baby, I have to praise you like I should….” Reading Stephs feature on Ruckus Rhythms nearly brought a tear in my eye man. I’m so proud of everyone that helps make EMPT happen these days but no […]
