Bleachers – I Wanna Get Better (RAC Remix)

This mix doesn’t differ very drastically from the original, but RAC tones it down by adding a catchy upbeat guitar and bass. It’s interesting to hear layers manipulated and moved to different parts of the song. You’ll notice the elements of the initial 5 seconds were moved from the background of the first verse of the original. I’ve been a fan of […]

Et Musique Pour Tous Presents: Les Auteurs — Ashley Hefnawy

We love the trials and tribulations of relationships. If you’re a regular reader of EMPT, you probably already know that. We love love. It’s a complex, difficult, struggling aspect of life, and yet, it’s so easy to rant about. I personally appreciate it because I am not currently in love. Because of that, I geekily analyze every […]

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Mars 2014

I can’t waste any more time doing things I don’t want to do…” – La Grande Belleza I haven’t seen that movie but that didn’t stop me from being taken by such profound words. Since the day you’re born, your parents have an idea of who they want you to be. Marketers know how they […]

RAC – Let Go (feat. Kele & MNDR)

I am so excited. This is, what I believe, one of RAC’s first original tracks. And before even listening to it, you can expect loveliness. It’s adorably catchy and predictably thought out, as all of his remixes and covers have been in the past. I reiterate my excitement not only because I want you guys to feel it like […]

Moullinex – To Be Clear (RAC Mix)

The men of RAC seem to be having a fantastic summer because the tunes just keep cranking out. I’m personally happy that their creative juices are flowing because I highly benefit from this stroke of brilliance. This track breathes a new life of its own, completely separate from the original. Moullinex’s seductive voice and lyrics make for a hard […]

Foster The People – Houdini (RAC Remix)

What makes Foster The People such a solid band is their unabashed approach to pop-rock. If they want to use a piano, they use a damn piano and slam out the chords. If they want to bring in a horn section and have them blare out notes over synths and their infectious falsettos, they do […]

Beta Love – Ra Ra Riot (RAC Remix)

How rare it is that I find an RAC remix that I don’t like. Upon first listen, thanks to the recommendation of my brother, I was taken by the attention to detail and sound, not to mention the delicate intro that plummets into an adorable bubbly anthem. This has RAC written all over it. I will find my beta […]

MNDR – Feed Me Diamonds (RAC Remix)

It’s snowing outside and I haven’t forgotten what I promised you guys this past summer. I save my favorite tracks of the week for Thursdays, and while I am passionately driven by sound, emotionally moved by each track that I write about, Thursdays are a special day in my life. I wish I could explain […]

RAC – Hollywood [feat. Penguin Prison] (Escort Remix)

The grooves! The grooves of it all! This jam is everything to me right now as I finalize my luggage for my trip this afternoon. Sometimes you need a little dance music to amp up your mood just a little bit – like a night cap…only it’s daytime…a day cap, maybe? Anyway, this track has […]

Mayer Hawthorne – No Strings (RAC Remix)

The men of RAC are capable once again of putting us in a happy place. With a some funk infused melodies thanks to Mayer Hawthorne, we have ourselves a tune that keeps up with a constant smile. The subject matter of this song and the melodic elements of funk swim together in an ocean of realness, as we wrap […]
