EMPT Presents Indaba Music Weekly: The Snooze – “Chills”

One of the best things that can happen when you’re combing through troves of music to feature on a blog like this is to come across a new and incredibly talented band, especially one whose music is untouched by the hands of the industry.

EMPT Presents: Indaba Music Weekly – KAASI “Showtime”

Oh, the British producer. Something about the electronic music coming out of the English scene always hits a chord with me. Maybe my preference is for the ear for textures that the British folk have assimilated into their common lexicon of sounds, maybe it’s the preference for darker overall sonic image as compared to the […]

EMPT Presents Indaba Music Weekly: Kalai – Flare

EMPT Presents Indaba Music Weekly: Foxkit – Could Be Wrong

                            2012 is a glorious time for fans of warm, reverb-y washes of falsetto and pulsing synth layers. Within this setting, Foxkit (the alias of one Chris Upton) makes music that shines. His electronic productions are at once fun party jams and intimate headphone […]
