Coachella 2011 Recap – Mixtape

Earlier this week I returned from my mecca in the desert, Coachella. This was my 2nd year attending as the people were beautiful, the weather was blazin, and the music was blissful. With such a loaded lineup, it’s impossible to see every artist you want to catch, as I missed plenty of good acts due to […]

Kevin Casey’s Sample Saturday – Steely Dan et Kanye West

Steely Dan’s eccentric lyrics were known to often portray true-life accounts of the world that surrounded the west coast hippie in the 60’s and 70’s. Witty and often sarcastic song themes touched on love, affairs, crime, and of course drugs.  “Kid Charlemagne”, the opening track of their fifth album The Royal Scam, was loosely based on […]

Kanye West – All Of The Lights (Pretty Lights Remix)

Don’t have much time before my meeting but I came across this remix on one of my new favorite websites so I thought I’d pass it along real quick… Colorodo native Pretty Lights just released a bunch of remixes, among which is a dub step version of Kanye West’s hit single All Of Lights. The remix […]

Kanye West & Jay-Z – That’s My B*tch (Prod. By Q-Tip)

I wake up this morning to this track in my inbox and what a way to start your day. Apparently the track is a leak from the upcoming Kanye and Jay-Z album Watch The Throne. I can’t confirm it but I’m pretty sure Elly Jackson aka La Roux is singing the hook on this track. […]

Kanye West – Good Friday (feat. Common, Pusha T, Kid Cudi, Big Sean & Charlie Wilson)

I’ve been holding back on the Good Friday songs simply because everyone’s been posting them so what’s the point. However, when I heard Kanye’s verse on the B.E.T. awards freestyle I had to show some love. The lyrics aren’t up anywhere and the other verses might have made you turn it off before hearing Kanye’s […]

Kevin Casey’s Sample Saturday – William Bell and Mavis Staples et Cam’ron

On friday night, I rolled to CV Lounge with my brother Scram Jones while he did his DJ thing, and shut down the club as usual.  Around 2 a.m. Kanye came through and played 4 records from his new album. The music was inspiring, and the vibe in the small lounge was very unique, and […]

Kevin Casey’s Sample Saturday – Curtis Mayfield et Kanye West

Kanye’s second album Late Registration displayed some changes in his production style, incorporating the help of producer and film score composer Jon Brion.  His interest in Brion came mostly from his work on the film Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind, and on Fiona Apple’s second album, When The Pawn… For many of the tracks on Late Registration, Kanye […]

Xaphoon Jones – Testify (Radiohead Vs Kanye West)

This is an oldie but goodie from the first Xaphoon Jones mixtape that was released back in August of ’09. The verse used for this mash-up is from one of my favortie Kanye songs, Touch The Sky. I feel like Kanye’s career is going to be divided into two very silly parts now, pre and post […]

Ratatat – The Remixes (G.O.V., Missy & Kanye)

I’ve said it before and I’ll say again, Skidmore is on the rise. With Micah Sloat getting his huge break in Paranormal Activity and Ratatat placing two songs on Kid CuDi’s debut I’d say we’re doing pretty good. So what better time to feature some Skidmore music on EMPT.? On top of that G.O.V. sent […]

The Whitest Boy Alive – 1517

Music is everybody’s possession. It’s only publishers who think that people own it.” – John Lennon Lots of work to do on a Saturday so here’s a quick post for all the people who hate on sampling. Long story short Edwin Birdsong was so inspired by this beautiful girl’s figure that he felt compelled to […]
