EMPT Presents Indaba Music Weekly: DJsiah – “Lights Are Getting Closer”

Jesiah, AKA DJsiah, is a busy man. Between his professional music pursuits creating music for commercials and major labels, he finds time to indulge himself in the artistic. His sonic creations are always immaculate, with transparent mixes, effective sounds, and a clear production style. One of his recent efforts, “Lights Are Getting Closer”, is the […]

Passion Pit – Take A Walk (Peking Duk Remix)

  This remix of Take A Walk captures, what I reckon is, the current American sound. Although this remix released some time ago from the Australian duo Peking Duk, it resonates clearly today with the signature sounds of the time. The formula: The indy-pop band (Passion Pit) creates a catchy track and the sexy DJ […]

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Septembre 2012

A person named Hadders (if thats your real name) left this comment on our wall last week and it said… Hi EMPT, I’ve been following EMPT for the last 2 years and my welfare depends deeply on your LMdM mixes. They’re unbelievable. Can’t wait for the next one and thanks for the music…” That made […]

Crystal Fighters – At Home (Passion Pit Remix)

Once upon a time, I used to DJ for an independent radio station. I would spin all kinds of electro/hiphop/funk from 3AM to 6AM. My favorite pastime, aside from dancing all over the studio, was the last song of my 3-hour set. For me, it was a culmination of neurotic, sleepless energy and several hours […]

Passion Pit – Take a Walk (Gold Fields Remix)

Passion Pit’s new album, Gossamer, is another very strong effort from America’s finest electropoppers. The word Gossamer means a cobweb or “something extremely light, flimsy or delicate,” which at first I found as just a cool word and upon further inspection is definitely a symbolic choice by the group. The word does fit in with […]

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Aout 2012

Man I have to be the luckiest guy around to have Ryan Radler sending me a mixtape one week and Steph Lund another the very next. I mean, I hear mixtapes all the time, but not once in my online scavenger hunts have I run into such unique tastes and diverse quality. Cheers to the to […]

Passion Pit – It’s Not My Fault, I’m Happy

Sorry I couldn’t be there, I was tied to a rocking chair  I was beat down to a pulp rocking back and forth somewhere  If you knew, if you saw, you’d have said it was the final straw That my life was bound and tethered on a porch by the shore  But there is no […]

Passion Pit – Constant Conversations

We are just under a week away from Passion Pit‘s long-awaited Gossamer. It’s been two years since they released the deluxe version of Manners. So we’ve waited, patiently, and now it’s so close. Not so secretly anymore, I’ve heard the entirety of the album already. And, friends, let me say… Yes. Passion Pit pours out some […]
