Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: The Lost Tape

With high expectations, rebel citizens of the millennial generation leave the tired and corporate ruled world of radio to begin a new life in music blogs…

Raid the radio!
Cause we’re tired of hearing the same old song.
We’re gonna change the dial to something new.
Bring some truth to this town.” – General Electriks

However, the Recording Industry of America gains great military powers and soon ceases control of one music blog after another, in the name of justice and peace.

The year is 2009, the space age. In a move to counter The Industries tyranny, rebel citizens of the Et Musique Pour Tous faction scheme to bring new arsenals to the earth disguising them as mixtapes. Made to introduce innovative and traditionally oppressed styles of art and music to the world, these tapes created a problem for The Industry taking away radio spins from the likes of elemental pawns Justin Timberlake and Timbaland. However, leaders of the powerful and corrupt hosting giant Gisol Incorporated catch on to this operation and in a merciless act to maintain power destroy EMPT and any traces of these mixtapes. Once again forced into the underground, EMPT forges an alliance with a small but powerful hosting company to rebuild and continue distribution of the mixtapes. As the revolution continues the tapes have gained great popularity around the world with more and more oppressed citizens finding new ways of expression and artistic appreciation. On 1.18.2010, EMPT released The Lost Tape, the first of the series destroyed by The Industry. The release is meant to symbolize the struggle and success of the continuing revolution. The second act has just begun, we’ll be busy…

Let’s see which course the future will take. It’s up to the people whether our plans to reform will succeed, that’ll decide the future…”
