EMPT Presents: Kitsuné Club Night – Mixed by Jorge Bonjour

As many of you know last night we were live @ Santos Party House in NYC with the French taste makers Kitsuné. Thanks to everyone that made it out, we look to do much more like that in the near future in both NYC and LA so stay tuned…

This morning I got an email from a French DJ/Producer named Jorge Bonjour telling me about a mix he wanted me to check out. He just moved to NYC and heard about our Club Night and made a mix using only the artists on the bill. Plastic Plates, Gigamesh, Computer Magic and Perseus in one mix, how could I say no? Turns out the kid Bonjour is pretty good. His mixes are clean, to the point and the tunes are of course right up our alley. We look forward to more from the new guy in town. In the spirit of the weekend, here’s an introduction to Jorge Bonjour and some music to get your pre-game soundtrack on point, enjoy.

EMPT Presents – S U M M E R : a n t i – w i n t e r 2 c by Ryan Radler

I was in complete denial about summer ending till I went to the Caribbean this weekend and felt that amazing Cabarete beach weather – yeah summer is over. I’ve been traveling a lot my whole life, there’s something about waking up in different countries within a matter of days that does it for me. I’ll never take that for granted and music has made it possible so cheers to that.

I woke up this morning still feeling like an islander but regaining my New York State of Mind and the first thing I did was put on the new anti-winter tape. The weather in NYC is fantastic, it’s in that perfect limbo between hot and cold, it feels like change and this new tape compliments that to perfection. The opening sequence here is wonderful, Trophy Wife to Poolside’s blissful cover of Harvest Moon and then Fleetwood Mac and on and on, all I could do was lay in bed with a smile. Ryan has a knack for blending traditionally unrelated beautiful music in a way you’d be hard pressed to find anywhere else and I highly appreciate it.

We sparked a doobie at like 8 am on Sunday morning after our DJ set with the one of the executives behind the weekend long event. Long story short, he was telling us how his companies creative approach is to introduce people to art they’re not familiar with. He goes out of his way to fly in acts from around the world to give the Dominican audience something new and refreshing. I loved hearing that and listening to Ryans eclectic selection brings me right back to that moment. Life is full of endless possibilities, limitless offerings and  keeping an open mind to explore all of it makes ones experience that much richer. Anyways, press play in the latest installment of anti-winter, start your day off in style and expand those musical horizons, enjoy.
