Get Out There…

Excuse the lack of post this week, I was stuck in the Dominican Republic since Sunday because of Irene so now I’m back in the city playing catchup with my bizz. Anyways, I kept it under wraps but some of yall might have noticed that EMPT was shut down for a good 12 hours last week. Basically, we maxed out our traffic and bandwith limits, again! So once more, I was introduced to some seriously nerdy server system that we have to upgrade to in order to keep this shit afloat. That said, congrats for consuming so much damn music, it cost us a boatload but it makes me extremely happy to see that people are seriously tuning in.

I’ve been out and about more than ever in the last few months and it’s changed my whole outlook on things. Basically, life happens out there, so get out there. The internet makes everything so easy, you don’t have to go to the movie theatre to catch a flick, you don’t have to go outside to catch up with your friends and you can order food while doing that so you don’t have to interrupt your lounging. That’s all fine and dandy but as with all things balance is key so don’t spend your time imitating a life that’s right outside of your door. Technology is amazing but pale in comparison to nature and that mind blowing creations that we are.

Long story short stop looking at this screen and GO OUTSIDE! I’ll leave you with a playlist compliments of the good folks at, it’s perfect for this Friday afternoon, enjoy.

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Octobre

Well, the E.M.P.T. pre-party for our bigger and badder one year anniversary party was a huge success and we’d like to take a moment to thank everyone that made it out, we enjoyed your company and hope to have more and more reasons to keep celebrating, see you in November.

As many of you know, the first of the month on E.M.P.T. means a new tape from mixtape guru Steph Lund. However, I was in severe recovery mode after the party so not much got done around these parts so this months mixtape will be a day late but here nevertheless. Without further ado, here are some words from the genius herself, enjoy.

Le Miel du Mois: Octobre

The art of “the repeat”. When I fall in love with a song, its always the same, I can tell instantly whether I am going to completely love it in the first 10 seconds. This is usually followed by playing the song over and over until I can anticipate every beat and lyric.

Le Miel du Mois repeats one of my new favorite artists: UK’s The xx. Enjoy, and be sure to: repeat.”
