Walter Sobcek – Milkshake d’Amour

Milkshake d'Amour

C’est vraiment le son classique de Paris.

I’ve often heard people say that some words are impossible to translate. Like Backpfeifengesicht. That’s German, and it means “a face that should be slapped.”

YES.

This principle holds true in music too. If you don’t live in the Bay Area, you can’t make a real hyphy track. If you aren’t from Korea, your K-Pop will never taste right. And if you aren’t a mustachioed, cigarette puffing Frenchman, you shouldn’t even try to produce French House (without a doubt the laziest genre designation in some time)

Walter Sobcek is two people. They are both French. Voila.

C’est tout.

Fleetwood Mac – Dreams (Walter Sobcek Remix)

walter fleetwood

Hold fast to your dreams, for without them life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly” – Langston Hughes

Just when I thought I never wanted to hear another Fleetwood Mac remix or mashup ever again…Walter Sobcek whips out their unleashes an early (but very legitimate) contender for classic remix of the year. The mysterious Parisian duo named after that crazy bowler from one of the greatest movies of all time have entered 2013 with a bang, and I hope it’s a sign that they plan to be a bit more active than usual this year.

It’s not easy to put Gigamesh or Psychemagik to shame, but Walter Sobcek has done just that. This “edit” is just the full monty laden with a nuanced touch. With a Falke-ian bass line and a Lifelike-y vocal choppage, this one is “Space Age” to the max. Mark it 10. In their words:

rent a LeBaron and hit the road from Chateau Marmont to Santa Monica, NOW… And while you´re at it, slip this little remix of FM´s Dreams and spin the shit out if it!

Dream on, dreamers. Dream on. You’re entering a world of joy.

EMPT Presents – S U M M M E R : a n t i – w i n t e r 2 d by Ryan Radler

For years when it came to EMPT I’ve been a one man band man. For those of you not familiar with the term coined by contemporary painter, producer, rapper Kasseem Dean aka Swizz Beatz, that basically means that from top to bottom I’ve running the show. Of course all credit due to Steph and the beloved LMDM series and Ryan Radler’s anti-winter/summer series, both which have become ultimate delineation of what Space Age Bachelor Pad Music is about, but when it came to running the show it all started and ended with yours truly. Recently however, things have changed and with my new fancy role as Creative Director there’s no way I would be able to keep this up. That’s where Mollie, the new EMPT operations boss comes in. If you’ve noticed the new increase in output lately she’s the reason why and compared to my sporadic post when I feel like it style of operation, it’s a welcome change. It’s great to see this site take on some new legs and run faster than it ever has and for that we’re all grateful. That said, looks like we’re ready to usher in a new era for EMPT and there are many reasons to be excited.

One of those reasons is the topic of todays conversation, S u m m e r : anti-winter 2d! Yet another inspired concoction of music from sir Ryan Radler. The tape starts off with with Keljet’s lights out remix of Coldplay’s UFO and then masterfully builds to an intermission provided by Quincy’s Summer In The City. I wish I was a better writer so I could tap into all my musical knowledge, experience traveling the world and living amongst different cultures so I could accurately express how wonderful it is when Ryan brings together these worlds, times and styles so effortlessly. Don’t get it twisted my friends, you can’t get this anywhere else. Music can be so many things, one day you might feel like Skrillex’s Kill Everybody because you love how aggressive, fast and exiting it makes life feel. Another day you’re bumping Hello Nasty or Doggy Style as loud as possible because it’s flat out fresh, that’s how you want to feel and…

Nothing sounds quite like an EIGHT-OH-EIGHT!” – Beastie Boys (Super Disco Breakin’)

The music Ryan puts together can be described as a lot of things but to me it’s mostly just beautiful. When I want to feel ethereal and put life in a the right perspective that’s where I’m going. Every one of these tapes has been nothing but good vibes and somehow this guy only gets better and better. Press play, kick back and you’ll see what I mean, enjoy.

Walter Sobcek – Miami (Pharao Black Magic Remix)

The illustrious Parisian based Walter Sobcek is back with his single “Miami.” We fell for Walter awhile back with “Traci’s Party,” still one of my most favorite discoveries. Walter is one of the first underground artists we posted about when we first started forthebeat nearly 2 years ago and we feel we’ve grown up right alongside him, only in this fantasy, we’re 16 and Walter Sobcek is our cooler older 20 year old brother, whose always out on the beach somewhere getting into trouble and throwing parties that start when its getting light out early in the morning.

The latest single is out on London’s Schmooze Records (Chilly Gonzales). Purchase link below.

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 smack in the middle of it all Steph sends me  a therapy session in the form of a mixtape that puts everything in perspective. The first five songs in this tape were meant to be together, in that order and released on June 15th, 2011. If you’re busy, overwhelmed with work and need something counter the load put this on repeat, it’s guaranteed to make it better. If you’re an LMDM fan you already know each tape stands along and this one is no different.

I myself have a bunch to do before heading to the water this weekend but I had to share this new tape with you before doing anything, enjoy.

The artist I am most excited about this month is Metronomy. Check them out if you haven’t already. They have three albums and have done many many amazing remixes. Another is Connan Mockasin, another UK based artist, but native to New Zealand. I couldn’t contain my excitement and amazement for CM’s video for “Dolphin Love” when my friend Maggie Godwin first showed it to me. Read her post and watch the video here. Connan supported Mystery Jets for a London show last summer and most recently opened for Warpaint on their UK tour.

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Mai 2011

Where am I? I’ve been rockin’ for a good 27 hours now,  was in the studio with the Oos & Ahhs all day yesterday, pulled an all nighter to finish curating the music for a restaurant and then realized this morning I have to hook you up with this months mixtape – Go, go, go…

Life in the fast lane
Surely make you lose your mind
Life in the fast lane, everything all the time…” – The Eagles

This months installment of LMDM is arriving 17 days late but in my opinion perfectly on time. I’ve been meaning to post about 9 of the 14 songs on the list which goes to show you how similar Steph and I are when it comes to music. There is much to be said about this line up, but I want to avoid too much talking because and let Mai 2011 shine. I’m pumped to finally have the new LMDM and I know a lot of you have been waiting so here it is, enjoy.

I decided to open this mix with Naked and Famous’ :48 intro called The Source which then goes into The Sun, my favorite track off the new album, besides Young Blood, and ended this month’s mix with one of my favorite Paris DJ’s Walter Sobcek, and his new remix of Parisian artist, Keren Ann, called My Name Is Trouble- the opener and closer of this month’s mix sets somewhat of a tone, which depending on the individual could feel completely different from one person to the next.

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Janvier

I haven’t posted anything in the New Year for two reasons, one I haven’t found a song worthy of your time and more importantly the 1st of the month is reserved for Steph Lund’s hit mixtape Le Miel du Mois and that’s how I wanted to set it off. Unfortunately the New Year means an even busier schedual for me so I can’t sit here and talk this one up as much as I’d like to but as usual Steph has given us a new mixtape with a unique flavor and vision, here are some words from the mixtape queen herself, enjoy.

Le Miel du Mois: Janvier:
2010. May the year be: “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” – Daft Punk. May we dance harder, love better, play faster, and live stronger. And if we do make mistakes in 2010, which we will, may they make the next step of our lives brighter and better for having made that mistake. Long live disco. Long live the dancefloor. Long live the queen. Long live the generation that is us. Happy New Year and welcome to 2010.”
