Little Dragon – Klapp Klapp

It’s a known fact that we love Little Dragon. They may well be EMPT’s most posted artist. For good reason. Yukimi Nagano, the group’s lead singer, is a force of nature. Her voice maintains its singular sound regardless of the sonic mayhem playing out in the background, and her octaval range brings excitement to songs […]

Little Dragon vs. Clams Casino – Ritual Union (Duncan Gerow Mix)

Funny that mash-ups – a genre that brings together disparate forms to create something fresh and new, that is, at its very core, about unification – can be so divisive. I can always appreciate the ethos behind mash-ups, if not the end result. After all, what is creation if not appropriation? Building upon the foundations […]

Big Boi – Higher Res (feat. Jai Paul and Little Dragon)

Now this is a collaboration I can get down to. None of the three artists spinning on this track are strangers to EMPT and having them come together is a bit of a dream I wish I dreamed just to say “Hey, I thought of this before it happened.” Here we are however and Big […]

Zion I x Little Dragon – Ritual Union (J. Period Refix)

Let me rewind us back to summer 2011. If there was a match made in heaven, this would be it. The futuristic raps of Oakland, CA’s own Zion I melts together with the jazzy-synth pop of EMPT favorite, Little Dragon. Taking the title track off Little Dragon’s 2011 release by the same title and adding […]

Little Dragon – Little Man (Tycho Remix)

This week has been a mixture of regret, shame, Oprah-style spiritual thoughts, and plans on making a change. I entered last week not feeling too great after a careless Friday night and spent last Saturday floating though an awaked sleep state. It was a wasted day; a type of day I strive to never have. […]

The Knife – Got 2 Let U

I’m constantly faced with the question of what my favorite track of all time is. Sometimes the question is framed differently, perhaps pertaining to what my favorite electronica track is, or new indie artist. The question is often met with uncertainty and fear on my behalf, because there are so many that I don’t want […]

Little Dragon – Little Man (Benji Boko Remix)

In honor of the free Little Dragon concert I attended on Friday night at Prospect Park, I’d like to share with you mighty EMPT listeners this track. I heard this remix a couple of weeks ago from a friend, and have been mildly (that’s really putting it lightly) obsessed for a while now. Little Man is one of […]

Little Dragon – Ritual Union (Bufi Remix)

It’s been a few months since I was in the Dominican Republic. The last time I was there I played the closeout fashion week parties for Dominican Modo 2011 and all I remember is a bunch of rowdy islanders dancing and jumping around so hard that the floor was shaking with my DJ booth about […]

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Novembre 2011

In my book there’s nothing better for a persons development then having to perform under pressure. The bigger the audience, the higher the stakes, the more to lose, the better. There’s something about those situations that requires you to simply man up and perform. It begs you to destroy your comfort zone, fail and constantly […]

Little Dragon – Crystalfilm

It’s a relaxing Sunday for me thus far out here in LA and this track from Little Dragon has been hitting all the right notes to complement my day. The new Ritual Union album from Little Dragon is growing on me considerably over the past week and there’s a lot of keepers but the track Crystalfilm won me over […]
