S U M M E R: a n t i – w i n t e r Collection by Ryan Radler

Oh sounds like a dream to me…”  – Destroyer

Last week marked the end of our anti-winter series but this week we thought it be a cool idea to look back at what ended up being 9 weeks of wonderful music thanks to Sr. Ryan Radler. A few months ago I saw a humbling comment on Facebook from this Ryan Radler dude asking us to check out his mixes. Most of our relationships happen this way so I did. Now I’m an aesthetically driven person, I love details, colors, beauty, symmetry, simplicity etc. Whether it’s a work of art or a girl with nice nails, I like to look at nice things so when I saw the cover for anti-winter 1a I was immediately drawn in. Then I listened to the tape and fell in love, I wrote Ryan back and the rest is history.

The tapes are a unique musical experience meant to both entertain and at times challenge your predispositions and expectations. As a music aficionado if someone makes me feel something new through song they’ve won me over and the anti-winter series did each and every time…

With each Summer Mix, I try and push my limits and boundaries to provide at least one track that either no one knows about or has never cared to know about. –

Looking at the collage up there makes you realize just what a fine collection this is and we’re honored to have helped bring it to your attention. Someone left a comment on our wall asking where all the anti-winter tapes went. They’re all here but in honor of the series and to make them easier to find here’s the entire collection and a link to each corresponding post. This is certainly not the last we’ll hear from Ryan so stay tuned in November for a a teaser of the upcoming W I N T E R series. In the meantime make sure to check out for perviously un-released content, inspiring art, thoughts and glimpses into one of EMPT’s favorite artists, enjoy.
