Marvin Gaye – Grapevine (Autograf Remix)

This is the musical equivalent of a finely aged bottle of wine. Fine as wine. And oh so sexy. Staying true to the nature of the timeless Marvin Gaye classic, this Autograf refix is pure magic. The glitchy, airy, chill-house-Nicolas Jaar-eque vibes resonate so well with the original vocal track and the combination makes for a sort of eerily blissful […]

Marvin Gaye – Sexual Healing (Kygo Remix)

Sexual Healing is such a tune. Really, it feels like a piece of musical history. It was ranked in the top 500 songs of all time. The original has a reggae, gospel feel with the bass and the signature  snare. And it is one of top “baby-makin’” tunes of all time. You have to appreciate […]

RRod – With The Suit & Tie On (Marvin Gaye vs. Justin Timberlake feat. Jay-Z)

Here’s the thing. Both Marvin Gaye and Justin Timberlake are two of my favorite musicians in the whole world. I stand by that statement for. Ever. JT’s debut album was one of the first CDs I owned. It wasn’t the first one, okay? Shakira holds that spot, but only because I found that CD first. I’m an honest and loyal supporter of Mr. […]

Marvin Gaye – Anger (Jeremy Sole Edit)

I’ve taken immediately to this song because of its melody and sweetness, but I think more importantly, because of how it made me almost instantly look inwards. What are the things we do in rage? I love the ease of this song while simultaneously allowing us to contemplate. The bongos introduce a sultry edit to […]

Marvin Gaye vs. Pryda – Too Busy Thinking About Leja

Think less, do more. I tend to over think things. Whether it’s where to go to eat or what song to listen to while I’m working out, I’m constantly plagued by indecisiveness and procrastination. Maybe it’s the English major in me, but I tend to analyze every aspect of my life, from where my life […]

Marvin Gaye – What’s Going On (S Man Remix)

Picket lines and picket signs Don’t punish me with brutality Talk to me, so you can see Oh, what’s going on What’s going on.” I have Yaqui to thank for this marvelous take on our beloved Marvin Gaye. The song and its lyrics resonate in such a way that I couldn’t help but snatch this one up […]

Theophilus London – Dancing (Feat. Marvin Gaye)

This is definitely a party banger Theophilus pulled out of his pocket, and couldn’t be more perfect for you party animals on this Friday!  Throw in a Marvin Gaye sample, the guy who created love songs that literally made girls gasp and run to the bathroom, ya it’s no joke, he had some kind of magic […]

EMPT Presents – S U M M E R : a n t i – w i n t e r 1 d by Ryan Radler

Warm enough yet? I think so and apparently so does Ryan Radler who is back in full effect with one of EMPT’s most treasured possessions, the 2012 collectors dream – S U M M E R : a n t i – w i n t e r. Or the best warm weather mixtape you’ll […]

Marvin Gaye – Sunny (Mercury Edit II)

I’m watching the sun set over my neighbors house in Connecticut. It’s gorgeous and never ceases to amaze me. I’d say that winter sunsets are one of the few reasons I enjoy winter. Everything else — the cold, the ice, slush — I could do without. But the sunsets are just so much more colorful […]

EMPT Presents – S U M M E R N I G H T S: a n t i – d a y 1a by Ryan Radler

I’m a hundred miles and running right now so I have no choice but to make this a quick one. Ryan sent me a brand spanking new mixtape over the weekend and talk about perfect timing! My BB won’t stop buzzing with emails, I have music to produce, restaurants to curate, DJ sets to finish […]
