Van She – Idea Of Happiness (SebastiAn Remix)

I love those lyrics man, couldn’t have said it better myself. It’s no secret that in this vastly changing world there’s a new wave of momentum and demand creating a perceived shortage of time that is quite commonplace for most of us. It seems like these days most of us have a relationship with time that is defined by pressure, shortage and limits. You ever talk to a friend that literally has no time to do anything? When you don’t fully understand the value of time it’s easy to take on more than one can bear. Nothing good about that.

As we all know time is quantifiable, it’s continued progress that we’re aware of and everyone abides by. Time can also be perceived, for example if you’re doing something terribly boring time can seem to go by painfully slow. Think about how time feels when you’re doing something lame, it can be slow and dreadful. Now look back at the last 5 years of your life, how fast have those come and go? It’s a wild concept when you think about that runs so deep it’s almost impossible to comprehend. In Idea of Happiness Van She captured this duality perfectly…

Time, just keeps on slipping away
I can feel the hands of the clock tick, tick, ticking away
But it’s nothing more than my mind slowly giving away
We got so much time, to think about yesterday
Just thinking on yesterday

If you’re not keeping up with time you’re going to be under constant pressure from it, always behind it . That leads to one of the most dangerous time killers I know of – dwelling on the past. Time waits for no man, it doesn’t stop so in order to keep up with it a person has to have a deep appreciation and discipline to make the most of it. Might sound cliche but it’s not something to be taken lightly, enjoy.

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Fevrier et Mars 2012

It’s been a long time coming but it’s finally here. LMDM is back and the beloved mixtape is as my greatest inspiration would put it, insanely great. Per usual Steph captures a multitude of feelings, emotions and styles sure to keep the worst of music skimmers engaged and entertained. All the selections come together to portray a sort melancholic hope that instigates both thoughts of lost loves and desired passions. Great art always explores both coast, it always makes you think of the sad while inspiring the beautiful. LMDM is great art to me and throughout this unique combination of February & March that’s exactly what happens.

Born & raised on EMPT, Le Miel du Mois has become one of our most special and cherished offerings. Press play on this one, you won’t regret it.

The latest mixtape is a ‘Fevrier et Mars’ combination, since I was back and forth London/New York the last 7 months, I had to combine these two in one. The opening track and closing track to the LMDM’s are probably the ones I spend most time on, making sure they fit in opening/closing, so I hope you’ll find it right to fit your own close to March. Favorite artists I’m listening to right now are the latest from Youth Lagoon, Grimes, Tennis, Summer Camp, Breton and Beach Fossils. Also love what I’ve heard so far from Lefse Records new artist, Way Yes. Excited for more and for those that went to sxsw, tell us what some of your favorite artists you discovered there were.Want to hear about the new miels.

SebastiAn – Embody

SebastiAn made a song called Embody. The song is the new single for a long awaited LP due in May. It’s Space Age kick back and vibe music. Ed Banger enjoyed this song and wanted a cool remix. They called DJ Premier. Primo added a break beat and some vintage Hip Hop flavor too it. It’s dope. EMPT posted it. Enjoy.

Kavinsky – Testarossa Autodrive (sebastiAn remix)

333

After a week in NYC I have come to the conclusion that Life is trying to teach me some serious patience. The traffic in this city is ridiculous. It makes Mexico City’s streets seem like a formula 1 racetrack. Sitting in the back seat of a cab on my way to meet Hec, going so slow it felt we were moving in reverse, I couldn’t help but smack SebastiAn’s remix of Kavinsky’s testarossa autodrive. This song is not for your privileged german autobahn drivers, its not for Schumacher or Alonso or any of them boys. This song is for the metro takers, snail-speed cab fare payers, and all the bus musketeers. This is for all those who realize that Life has given our souls an engine that can hit a potential 170 mph, yet the law tells us to keep it under 60. This is for those that want to live in overdrive.

This is our decision, to live fast and die young. We have the vision, now lets have some fun!.” – MGMT

Enjoy
