Et Musique Pour Tous presents Les Auteurs – Nicky DePaul

Today I am excited to offer the second entry into EMPT’s “Les Auteurs” playlist series, in which our writers share playlists built around a theme of their choosing. The design of the EMPT is not condusive to author recognition, and we devised this series as a way for our loyal (unpaid) writers to put a […]

Adam Tensta – My Cool (Al Azif Remix ft. Dr. Alban)

Due to some administrative confusion, my earlier post on Autograf’s “Gust of Wind” remix has been taken down…as the track was written up already yesterday! Ah, the pitfalls of an international remote team sharing a Dropbox account. So in the interest of keeping all you EMPTers satiated with Sunday summer jams, I offer you this […]

Ponderosa Twins Plus One – Bound

I recently found myself climbing a massive hill that overlooks downtown Edinburgh, Scotland. This was after being invited on a girls weekend which somehow came down to two of us, packing our backpacks and running for trains to make a cheap flight up. The best kind of last minute trip. It was a 36-hour stint […]

New Navy – Zimbabwe (Flume Remix)  

When we last heard from New Navy, the Aussies were covering Telepopmusik’s “Breath.” This time, the boys get a rework from compatriot Flume, who has blown up considerably since I first saw him with twenty other people in the basement of Cake Shop (NYC) last year. Here, Flume exhibits a lighter touch than usual, turning […]

Reflex – Sunset (Club Mix)

  I know for many of you summer may still seem far off. Beijing, Toronto and Paris are hovering in the 50s, and sweaters still abound across the northern and southern climbs. But the season has unequivocally arrived in Rio and LA, my current location. And with it, my current musical artifact fixation, the summer […]

Jagwar Ma – Come Save Me

Some days it seems like the world is going to shit. I think people have always felt this way, but damn. Power plays for “strategic” locations (see: Crimea, Senkaku), unceasing government sponsored murder, institutionalized racism (as bad as it gets in the USA, it’s worse oversees)…not to mention the 5th IPCC report detailing the true […]

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 […]
