Ghost Beach – Been There Before (Shook Remix)

Changing, changing Shook’s remix of “Been There Before” takes the original, strips it substantially of its lyrics and focuses on beat-tastic piano and disco bass. The bongos make me feel like i’m sitting by a beach-side cabana, the beat makes me want to shake my booty. The piano has a Chilly Gonzales-esque sound to it; the in-your-face-can’t-leave-your-mind […]

Jamiroquai – Lifeline (Shook Remix)

Here’s the thing. Anyone who knows me, knows that I’m such a sucker for good catchy tunes. Well, I guess everyone is kind of a sucker for good catchy tunes. But I recently remembered a conversation I had with a friend about the roots of our musical loves. I talked about being ten years old and obsessing […]

Rhian Benson – Rewind (Shook Remix)

“Can we take it back to the days when we could define sublime? Even if takes a lifetime for us to find love, let’s rewind. Rewind.” Somehow and to some degree most of us can relate to this feeling and this moment when we reminisce about that past love. To reminisce is not the bad […]

Shook – Hold Tight

Excuse the lack of post lately, I wish I had an excuse but I don’t. To be honest I haven’t felt compelled to write and I’ve never been good at faking the funk so I just had to give the ol’ EMPT time off till I found something that inspired a return. Leave to Shook […]

Fallulah – I Lay My Head (Shook Remix)

Ah another blissful tune from Fallulah has entered the realms of my strange and blessed world these days. As I multi-task a million different things at work, (something I’ve become sadly good at) I’ve been listening to two artists. Fallulah, and quite drastically different, Jay-Z/Kanye’s latest album, Wath the Throne…we’ll save that conversation for another […]

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Avril 2011

I got an email from one of our readers telling me about a site that flat out ripped off the entire EMPT style, I mean we’re talking a straight bite here. I have no problem with people borrowing from us but completely stealing our names, concepts and vibe doesn’t make any sense to me. EMPT […]

EMPT Returns / Ellie Goulding – Lights (Shook Remix)

And we’re back! I got tons of emails, text and calls about the status of EMPT – words can’t describe how much I appreciate everyones concern. EMPT is my baby so needless to say I wasn’t feeling good when we we’re taken off the air. There have been all sorts of rumors going around regarding […]

I Blame Coco – Quicker (Shook Remix)

Eliot Paulina Sumner aka I Blame Coco aka Stings daughter is slowly making her acension to the top of the indie pop world. By slowly I mean she’s signed to Island Records, released an album and is constantly working with the biggest music heads in Europe. On top of that she’s getting remixes by people like […]

Penguin Prison – The Worse It Gets (Shook Remix)

This song is about a guy looking at himself from the outside in and realizing that he’s not very happy with who he’s becoming. I’ve seen my face too many times The more I look the worse it gets…” I’m a big fan of self-improvement simply because being honest to yourself is probably one of […]
