Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Mai

They say time flies when you’re having fun, I guess that why it wasn’t till last week that I realized it’s been a whole year since Steph started the Le Miel du Mois series, wow. We’re getting a lot of new visitors lately so if you’re new to EMPT I recommend you to to the LMDM page and start right back at the very first installment of this series and work your way up to this months. Every tape has stands on it’s own and till this day I’ve never been able to pick a favorite and this month is no different. I know this is my site but I’m probably the biggest fan of this mixtape and since this is a big occasion and all I’d like to thank Steph for gracing us with such great music and taste.

You are appreciated” – Tupac

We’ll be announcing the official LMDM one year anniversary party soon so stay tuned…

Le Miel du Mois: Mai

This months LMDM is particularly special because it marks the one year anniversary for LMDM. The numbers of listeners streaming and downloading keeps growing each month and we hope every mixtape is like a special little present you cant wait to open every first of the month. This month’s tape is mostly dance tracks, my favorite. I like anything fast and loud that I can dance to and I hope you will agree that most of these get that job done. It finally feels like spring, and LMDM’s summer ahead looks danceably and rockingly amazing. Enjoy.

80Kidz – Frankie (Feat. The Shoes)

Frankie is one of my favorite tracks from last summer and since I didn’t post it then I’ll do it now. I first heard it while partying at Chloe back when they DJ’s played a little more than your typical Top 40 fair and it’s been in heavy rotation since. 80Kidz are the Japanese ambassadors for American indie music. They’re known in the States for their remixes of MGMT, Daft Punk, Lykki Li and Black Kids to name a few. Their sound is mostly hard new rave and made for moving, so if they happen to show up in your town don’t expect Bon Iver when you get there. It should also be noted that they have a very cute Japanese girl in the band – very important information. The vocals on this track are courtesy of The Shoes who sing about this guy named Frankie, aka the king of the night. Everyone loves Frankie and Frankie loves everyone.

Frankie is the sun
Walking in the streets
He’s the king of the night
Dancing on the beats”

I don’t know who this Frankie guy is but I like already like him. The production on this track is infectious and has great energy, much needed on the dreaded opposite of fun day Monday, enjoy.
