Noctambule 6.23.11 *UPDATE – Starts @ 10:30 PM*

Alright homies, we’re one day away from Noctambule and I can’t sit still. Before I forget, the party is starting at 10:30 PM instead of 11 so come earlier for some extre good music, beautiful people and free booze. I spoke to one of the dudes at Sleep No More I’ll tell you man these guys are the real deal. We’ve dealt with so many people putting on these events and this was the first time I spoke to someone in management who was actually committed to providing an amazing experience for their visitors. Come to the party tomorrow to get a taste of the space but make sure you see the actual show, I’m telling you it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen in NYC. There’s so much cool shit going on, I’ve never been busier and the fast life is in full effect…

Man I’m high off life, f&$k it I’m wasted… – Jay-Z (Allure)

Right now my only concern is keeping pace, making the most out of every moment and appreciating all the amazing things nature provides. A little Mary Jane never hurt anyone, but don’t take for granted all the incredible things out there that get you going the all natural way, enjoy.

I’m gettin’ high…”

Noctambule 6.23.11 *UPDATE – Starts @ 10:30 PM*

That’s right fools, you know what Daria means around these parts – we’re having a party! The saga continues as we bring back Noctambule the only way we know – BIG. I’ve been very fortunate to link up with some very cool PR ladies from a company called The Participation Agency who share our artistic taste, love for the big show and passion for quality. I have no time for anything these days and they’ve helped put together something ridiculously cool for yall and for that we’re so thankful.

The party is taking place at the Sleep No More space and if you’re not hip that what that is then get familiar. Sleep No More is hands down the illest art to hit New York City in the last 10 years. Any attempt at describing it is completely futile so just look it up, buy a ticket and thank us later. The point is this space is ridic and EMPT is the first outsider to come rock the place, we’re honored to be a part it. The event is…

Which means we’ve got an open bar and other goodies to keep you rocking. I haven’t spoken to Kevin yet but I’m sure Casey Mendoza will do a DJ set and did I mention there’s a live performance from Like Diamonds? Fresh.

Like Diamonds – In This Together

After partying in Vegas two weeks ago I didn’t think I would be able to get excited about much but I’m really looking forward to putting this on for you guys. We’ve worked with some amateur league representation in the past so I’m a little scarred  and since I can’t bare giving you guys anything be the best I almost backed out of this one. However, the girls at The Participation Agency showed me what professionalism is in the world of PR and knocked this out in style so expect a heck of a time.

I’d love to host the entire EMPT army but space is truly limited on this one so if you want to rock RSVP at

Noctambule – Halloween Eve

That’s right fools, Daria means one thing around these parts, we’re having a party! The whole EMPT team has been traveling, restructuring and simply working hard since the end of summer so this one’s long overdue. I’ve gotten a lot of emails from people asking when the next bash was taking place and I’ve been too busy to respond to everyone but we’re back so let’s get it going!

As usual, we’ll be taking care of the music and doing our best to make it a dance party to remember. It is Halloween and while costumes aren’t required they certainly are welcomed. I’m not big into dressing up myself but I certainly can’t get enough of the crazy outfits people put together so feel free to join the madness.

In order to attend you’ll need to RSVP at and enter 667 as the event code. Once you do that you’ll receive all the information you need to join the fun.

Desire – If I Can’t Hold You

I lay awake all night long…”

This 8 minute long, no frills, understated late night love song is a gem. The song is a collaboration between producer Johnny Jewel (Chromatics) and Canadian singer Megan Louise. The songstress is jaded as she longs for her missing lover when she realizes the inevitable truth that the other side of the bed just won’t be filled.

Yesterday so far away, I think of things we’ll never do. It keeps me up all night long..”

The melancoly in her voice makes picturing this situation, not to mention that everyone’s been to that place of unfulfilled desire, love and lust for someone. There’s nothing quite like a sad song that still makes you want to move. The next time I end up in an after hours spot with a bunch of tipsy friends this will be one of the first tracks to make the rotation. I’ve had a few nights lately where I’ve really enjoyed being up, doing stuff and thinking about the next moves but I haven’t really had the music to support my Noctambule tendencies – problem solved. Alright, gotta go but thanks to everyone that downloaded this months mixtape, it’s only been out for a day and is on it’s way to being our most popular ever! Enjoy…

I lay awake all night long…

Desire – If I Can’t Hold You


G.O.V. – Cross The Dancefloor (Chromeo Remix)

As usual I was completely destroyed after our party so excuse the no post yesterday. The Le Souk Noctambule was a huge success, I think we had over 400 people partying, fresh. Thanks to everyone that came out, I hope you had a blast. There will be more very soon…

And ’em back to the lecture at hand…” – Snoop Dogg

G.O.V. stopped by my apt last night with some new music and he played me his remix of Cross The Dancefloor and I instantly fell in love. His verse is basically about two people who choose to dance and enjoy themselves over everything, I like that attitude. You ever see someone at a party get accidently pushed or something and then they’re all pissed off and mad for the rest of the night? I really feel sorry for people who have such easy triggers. The funny thing is that that person will go ahead and say his night was ruined by the guy who pushed him but the truth is that by making the choice to get mad and even worse stay mad, he or she ruined their own night. Moral of the story is don’t give yourself a headache over little things and make the concious choice to never let anyone ruin your day, night, week, month or life. They won’t like your enlightment and perspective but that’s what haters do…

They gonna be hatin’, throwing yellow flags, excessive celebrating But they don’t understand that your leg just wont stop shaking and you know I ain’t fakin… – G.O.V.

Now that the parties over we’re back in business so I can’t stay and chat but let G.O.V. get you ready for the weekend in style. This is an EMPT exclusive, enjoy.

Noctambule @ Le Souk

This is the video for today’s song, it features model Daisy Lowe and it’s a hot girl dancing in front of an HD camera which pretty much speaks for itself but more on that later…

That’s right fools, we’re having another party! Our Yacht party with was a huge success so we’re doing it again. This time it’s in the West Village at Le Souk Harem and we’ll have hookahs all around, belly dancers, fire breathers, booze, dance debauchery and a few other things better left unsaid. We haven’t finalized the DJ lineup and we’re waiting for the official sponsorships to be approved but I’ll have all those details by tomorrow the latest, in the meantime here’s all you need to know.

Noctambule 7.14.2010
Le Souk
510 LaGuardia Pl.
10 PM
Music by Et Musique Pour Tous

TV on the Radio’s David Sitek announced a side project under the name Maximum Balloon and it’s looking to be a good one. The first song from the yet untitled album is called Tiger and it sounds like Chromeo meets Rick James, it’s a celebration bitches. It’s been out for almost a month now so I’m surprised it hasn’t hit full internet hype yet.

I couldn’t think of a better song to fit the mood of this party because this one is quite simply about letting go of the past, all the reservations, the limits and having a good time.

We’re so hung up, like tiny pictures, sentimental…
Remember when we were heading, for the ambush, a confrontation
You let your tiger out!
Let go of everything that you know,
Don’t hold back what you feel…”

This is exactly what we tell club owners when they want to get us to bring Noctambule to their place. We value your experience more than we value anything these club owners offer us so when we interview them we ask all sorts of protective questions and make sure we have total control of every single aspect of the party and if we feel that the owner doesn’t have the right vibe or understand we just walk away. We’ve never cared about making money and our main concern is having a good time, it’s one of the main reasons our parties continue to grow and we hope you enjoy this next one…

Noctambule – Yacht Party

Wrecking ball hit yah like a freight train coming, I’m on a Warpath gonna hit the ground runnin…” – Rat Fink

That’s right fool, after about 2 weeks in LA we’re back in the big city and though I’m tired as f&*k,

The show must go on…
I’ll top the bill, I’ll overkill
I have to find the will to carry on
On with the –
On with the show –
The show must go on… – Queen

We had to put the Noctambule series on hold to explore some opportunities on the West Coast but now that business is done and the future has opened up we’ve decided to come back with our biggest celebration to date, our first Yacht Party. We’ve partnered up with to get a  luxury yacht and throw a mean party. Yours truly and Kevin Casey will be taking care of the music so expect some EMPT flavor on that end. Also, there’s a bikini fashion show sponsored by Pesca Boutique throughout the whole event, nice.

I’m blowing up like you thought I would, call the crib same number same hood, it’s all good.” – Notorious B.I.G. (1994, Juicy)

If you want to come you can buy admission here. That get’s you free booze and food for the 3 hour ride: “(Full premium bar and unlimited beer, wine and champagne), including sponsorship by Grey Goose and Corzo Tequila. Le Souk will be catering a fabulous menu for the evening as well.”We’ve invited all our industry friends, there’s press coming blah blah blah but most importantly is going to be a good time.

I left LA last night and just landed, I think it’s 6 AM but I can’t stop going, fast that is. I was looking for the right song to capture this non-stop limitless state of mind and landed on Volta Cab’s Clarissa – perfect. The boys over at Nashville Nights couldn’t have put it better…

Side effects of Clarissa may include, ‘the power of flight’, ‘good vibrations’, ‘out of body experiences’, ‘euphoria’ and a ‘general disregard for whatever may be troubling you’.

The Space Age at it’s best, enjoy.

Volta Cab – Clarissa


Noctambule – Cinco de Mayo

That’s right fool, it’s Cinco de Mayo and you know very well what that P.Y.T. up there means in our language – we’re having a party. The weather is amazing, the RSVPs are through the roof, the margaritas will be flowing soon and the night is set to be epic. If you have’t RSVP’d yet go ahead and do it so you can get the password, it’s going to be a full house and I don’t want anyone to have trouble getting in. On another note, tomorrow I’ll be announcing my new company for which we’ll be having a launch party next week but more on that later.

The Eldridge – 247 Essex (btw Stanton & Houston)

Pretty much the only music I like to listen to on days like this is MJ but we’ve all heard that a million times so I thought why not just post some MJ inspired music. While a million songs will fit that category here are two of my favorites. The first is the Idjut Boys’ remix of Lindstrom & Christabelle’s Baby Can’t Stop. Want MJ without Quiny Jones or MJ, listen to this track. It’s got the horns, the guitars, the pads, the works. Of course you won’t get that big Bruce Sweden sound but the energy and life is there so the vibe will still be right. Second is Drixxxe’s Remix of Data’s One In A Million. The first you’ll notice is the Wanna Be Starting Something in the bass and rhythm section. Some people might see the inspiration as something negative but I love it. Anyways, I have a million things to do to make sure this party rocks correctly so I’ll have to cut it short but stop by The Eldridge and say hi, I’ll be at the table next to the DJ’s, enjoy.

Et Musique Pour Tous Presents – Noctambule @ The Eldridge

After 3 weeks at 137 Essex we decided to put the Noctambule party on hold to make some improvements but it seems like we didn’t really communicate that correctly because a bunch of rockstar night owls still showed up these last two weeks only to realize the EMPT crew was no where to be found! We love your motivation and we apologize for the confusion but we’ve been hard at work trying to find a new location to improve the Wednesday night experience and haven’t been doing much talking in the mean time…

Get it right dawg, we ain’t ever left
We just, moved in silence and rep to the death…”

That said, we’re happy to announce that Noctambule returns on May 5th in our new partnership with Matt Levine’s The Eldridge, fresh. We took a lot of meetings trying to find the right vibe and an ownership that saw eye to eye with our undying need to create a quality time with no compromise for anything. We were either going to do this party the right way or not at all so it was a little discouraging taking meetings when the owners looked at our talk about quality like we were from the space age ; ), but within 5 minutes into our meeting with Matt and hearing about his vision it was clear that this was the place to do it. So that’s right fool, Cinco de Mayo is the official return of Noctambule and it’s going to be a good one. DJ Civetta is opening up The Chainsmokers and headlining so the music is going to be banging. Lastly, The Eldridge is very different from 137 Essex so RSVP to and you’ll get the password, we’re keeping it exclusive to EMPT and the extended family only. So put on your fine linens, grab some cocktails and let’s rock.

Let this be our little secret, no one needs to know were feeling higher and higher and higher…”
