EMPT Presents: Le Miel du Mois Septembre 2013 (Mini-Mix Series)

First off all, this mini-mix is amazing. As usual Steph’s selections are fantastic but the story told and vibe really take it over the top, DON’T SLEEP people! Ok, on to todays thoughts…

Can we get much higher?”

They say never forget where you came from so every now and then when I realize how far I’ve come I try to relive those olden days. Lately though, that exercise is becoming more and more challenging because I’m starting to think that phrases like “never forget where you came from” are one of the many social mechanisms designed to uphold the trap and create limits. I read a post on Cyrus Pavel that sums it up quite nicely…

Everything we know, we are taught.  Everything we “believe” has been curated into our ideologies.  But what about those things that exist out there which we still have no idea of?  Unearthed elements to the periodic table, technologies that will wire our brains to manipulate our own bodies in order to take flight. 

When people are electrocuted and thrown far distances, it is the result of sudden and very violent muscle contractions and not the result of the shock, which means that we have the ability within us to do much more with our bodies than we have been taught.  “Taught” being the key word. 

You might think that if we wanted to be immortal, we could, but we don’t know how to do so yet.  One might say that love isn’t supposed to be forever, yet we don’t know what kind of life exists after death, so maybe, just maybe, love is the only thing that does continue on. 

But, we have a lot to think about, both you and I, because if things are that easy then we truly have not really evolved much as a species.  In the interim, machines are rising like a sci-fi flick at exponential rates, and we’re still asking ourselves the same questions that Socrates and Plato did…

The LMDM Septembre Mini-Mix starts with Wise Blood’s Alarm, which just explains it all right now…

I can’t think, with someone sitting right in from of me. I need my personal space…

Constantly in front of all of us culture, television, music, screens, the matrix. Don’t accept conventional wisdom and protect mind. Like I said, the zone this tape captures is fantastic. It’s thoughtful, chill and banging at the same time. The best art captures the full spectrum, Stephs art does that effortlessly. The whole mini-mix series so far is knocking my socks off, enjoy.

  1. WiseBlood – Alarm
  2. Lorde – Million Dollar Bills
  3. Clubfeet – Cape Town (Panama Remix)

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Octobre 2011

After a month hiatus of Le Miel du Mois is finally back with it’s latest installment and man does it feel good to say that. I saw all the comments and got the emails, I missed it as much as you guys but Steph was in the process of leaving New York for London and I can only imagine how busy she must have been.

The LMDM tapes always seem to take me on this joyful ride of reflection and movement, I guess that’s why so many of us have come depend on it to get our months started.  It’s been a crazy two months around these parts, we’ve got more business then ever and it’s been quite the challenge to manage all of life’s offerings with equal care and attention. Not too long ago I would have felt overwhelmed right now but these days I’m all about welcoming challenges with open arms. When you want something you have to be willing to work for it, it takes discipline, constant adjustments and will but more importantly a perspective and understanding of process…

Flowers need water to grow, it gotta rain
And in order to experience joy you need pain
Every time a baby is born, somebody slain
You know the saying, somebody’s lose is another’s gain
The sun comes out when the water goes down the drain
When the rainbow in the cloud comes out we do it again…” Jay-Z (Gift & The Curse, Guns & Roses)

Anyways, this is another amazing tape completely in tune with the feeling of change offered by the season. So happy to have LMDM back, enjoy.

Its fall! The weather is perfect for some last minute solo strolls with this month’s LMDM. A lot of new artists included whose full EPs/albums are really worth the purchase. Be sure to check out more from Micachu & the Shapes, Ghostpoet, Breton, and 17 year old Zoo Kid. Also, some great new albums out including  The Rapture, M83 and Real Estate, all of which have some new tracks included in the latest mix.’

with love from London! xxx Steph…
