tUnE-yArDs – Water Fountain

This song. Is. ALIVE. I am physically charged, up to my max every time I play this song. Since yesterday, I haven’t been able to stop. I have so many thoughts and feelings about Merrill Garbus, her music, her beauty, the sounds that she and her band mates are capable of creating. So many thoughts. […]

Major Lazer – Good Enuff (Cash Flow Dub)

Is it Summer yet?  I’ve been on the West Coast for a month now and I guess it always feels like Summer over here with relaxed vibe, the sun always shining and the beach just steps away, these folks be spoiled I tell you!  It’s hard to get anything done when the sunshine is blurring […]

EMPT Presents — S U M M E R: a n t i – w i n t e r 1 e by Ryan Radler

Whether we like it or not, a new month approaches like a long lost relative, familiar out of necessity but still foreign with the possibilities that it brings. August is one of my favorite months of the year, and in the summer, because it’s absent of annoying holidays and tedious celebrations that all really commemorate […]

The Rebel Light — Jukebox Dream

In life, we will come across many loves.  Loves that last minutes, hours, mere seconds, months, years and maybe even decades.  Loves that are good, loves that are bad for us, loves that are passionate, loves that are intense or just crazy, and loves that simply go.  Once in a while, one of these loves […]

St Lucia – Elevate

It’s a beautiful, breezy, blue-sky day in Portland, the kind of summer day you always fantasize about when it’s February and you can’t remember the last time you didn’t feel cold, wet, or hunched over. It’s the kind of summer day that makes every experience seem memorable or important, even if it’s the same routine […]

DJ Y alias JY – Sunny, Happy (Easy – part 2)

This song makes me feel giddy with sunshine. It’s the sort of blissful intoxication that results after you’ve had too much sun and can’t help but exude a hazy radiance as you drift through your day. Navigating through the swarming mass of sweat and noise of this city is way better when listening to this […]

Parra For Cuva feat. Anna Naklab – Wicked Games (Original Mix)

The original “Wicked Games” by Chris Isaak has to be one of my favorite songs, the lyrics, and the luring strums of the guitar, it’s so effortlessly beautiful and timeless. So when I heard this original mix from Parra For Cuva & Anna Naklab I fell in love all over again.  I can shamelessly say […]

EMPT Classic: Chromeo – Momma’s Boy

  Let me tell you I know a lot of “Momma’s Boys” in this world and these kinds of boys require a lot of love, and it’s Summer so give em what they want ladies until Winter rolls around and then they better get busy with the back rubs.  I felt like a classic throwback […]

ASTR – Operate (The Chainsmokers Remix)

Did some one say The Chainsmokers, and it’s Thursday?! Yup it’s Thursday and you know what that means, the weekend has officially started and what would the weekend be without a little Chainsmoker love.  Once again I open my email and out comes a this sexy track and it slaps me right on the ass, […]
