EMPT Exclusive – Full Moon: Mix De Lune

Ooooooo the excitement is raging in me as we speak.  Ever since I got word of the Full Moon party on Governor’s Island the anticipation has seemed like it’s going to last forever but alas the event is only two weeks away! Some of our favorite artist’s that we crave and love so much here […]

Of Monsters & Men – Little Talks (The Knocks Remix)

This is a pretty exclusive remix from The Knocks my EMPT friends, I had the luxury of seeing their post about this one on facebook yesterday, how nice right?!!  I had the luxury of meeting JPatt & B-Roc briefly at a party in downtown NYC last fall.  Super cool dudes, already flying high with all […]

The Knocks & Fred Falke – Geronimo

You wanna go to the sky with me?! Man, take a look at the world right now. Scientist have have recently made one of the most important discoveries in modern science with the observation of what could be the God particle aka the Higgs Basoon. We’re that much closer to know what matter is made […]

Santigold – The Keepers (The Knocks Remix)

My boys Mr. J-Patt and B-Roc of The Knocks take this one out of the park. Fresh out of the oven they bring us their rendition of my favourite track out of Santigold’s album Master of My Make-Believe. The song is not quick to the trigger and leaves a couple of surprises further into it. […]

The Temper Trap – Fader (The Knocks Remix Feat. Samuel)

I really enjoy both versions of this track for different reasons.  The Tempers Traps original version has the vibrant rock/indie up tempo vibe where you hear it and you just want to jump around where ever you are.  The way the drum and bass kick in right away with the high energy harmonies being a […]

Dragonette – Let It Go

I am a huge fan of Dragonette, her energy and attitude which you hear in her vocals and every word that comes out of her mouth, it’s very real, it’s not forced.  This is something I am always noticing first hand when I am listening to more and more artists especially female artists, of this […]

EMPT Presents – S U M M E R : a n t i – w i n t e r 3B by Ryan Radler

I think releasing Ryans mixtapes on Monday’s has completely altered my perception of this previously dreaded day. I don’t know about you guys but everything in my life revolves around music, it’s my bread & butter, my hobby,  basically all of the above. I love it so there are no complaints, however I’m a fan […]

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Juin 2011

The second I pressed play on this tape I had to stop dead in my tracks to sit back and take it all in. It’s only Wednesday and this has already been one heck of a week… That’s why I’m heading for the coast, it’s the only reside I know… – Loud Valley Of course, dead […]

Passion Pit – Sleepyhead (The Knocks Remix)

Sleepyhead is like 20 years old in blogs years and I was pretty sure I wouldn’t be able to sit through another remix until I ran in my latest muse, Sleepyhead (The Knocks Remix). Most of you know the Passion Pit story by now but for those who don’t here’s a cliff notes version. This […]
