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

So I’ve been stuck in the Dominican Republic since my gig on Saturday thanks to the ultra hyped junior hurricane Irene. The irony of being stuck in the Caribbean because of a hurricane in New York of all places is pretty funny but it’s beautiful down here so I’m not complaining. Saturday at Praia down here was sick, the did it up with the promotion and the place was packed and bumpin’ all night. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, these guys are doing something fantastic for Dominican culture and I couldn’t feel more privileged be a part of it. There will be a lot more going on between us so stay tuned for the exciting future developments.

In case you didn’t notice, I didn’t get around to posting much this weekend, the island sun was calling me and I had no choice but to listen. However, the show much go on and today we have yet another exclusive release from the main man Ryan Radler. I’ve been partying nonstop since I got here and now I’m finally poolside in my hotel with this tape in the background and the vibe is sublime. As you can see from this website, I’m not into musical monogamy, I listen to EVERYTHING, including country and that’s one of the reasons I love these tapes so much. Ryan wonderfully balances the chilled out summer theme but is never restricted to any particular style of genre. For the musically promiscuous like myself a wonderful treat. Anyways, you guys already know this by now so I’m going to go continue enjoying DR, won’t be back for at least another two weeks so I have to make it last. Enjoy.

The Hood Internet – Kaputting It Up (Raekwon x Destroyer)

Yea I’m out that Brooklyn Harlem, now I’m down in TriBeCa
right next to Deniro, but I’ll be good forever
I’m the new Sinatra, and since I made it here
I can make it anywhere, yea, they love me everywhere…” – Empire State of Mind

I tell you, LA is killing it with the healthy food, great weather, Prius invasion and good vibrations but man does it feels good to be back in my stomping grounds. In honor of the city I’m posting this Hood Internet mashup of Destoryer’s Kaputt & Raekown’s Cutting it Up. These songs are polar opposites and I love that the Chicago boys put them together. Some people out there are what I like to call auto-haters, these are cats who don’t give music they can’t immediately identify with a chance because it’s not familiar to them. They deem themselves objective but only within the styles they consider good which is so backwards I won’t even get into it. Mashups like this are a great way to trick those people out of their closed mindedness so props to all the mashup kings for helping to destroy all lines…

Well, tell me then which of these various styles you think is the best then huh?
The best I hear is the combined, the best of all styles. Put them together.”

Anyways, I’ve been working with some very cool people out in Cali and we’re all aspiring to take this music thing to new levels so expect something fresh to develop in the future. In more immediate news we’ve finally locked in June 23rd for the return of our Noctambule series so stay tuned for the official announcement because we’re coming back strong, peace.
