Excuse the lack of posts lately, I’ve been in Mexico since the 26th and it’s been hard to sit down in front of a comp. On top of that, EMPT locked in one of the hottest restaurants in the big apple before I left so I’ve been working non stop trying to finish their music [...]
I always play this song at parties but kept forgetting to post it.
Private is a group from Copenhagen, DK who listened to a lot of Michael Jackson and Quincy Jones while growing up. Every time I play this song or Crucify My Heart I get the chills just thinking about MJ and how he continues [...]
When it comes to music, it’s no secret that out of struggle comes progress and innovation. There’s no greater example of that than the rich, ingenious and often suppressed musical culture of Cuba. Of course, you can’t talk about Cuba without mentioning the big boss international icon of rebellion Comandante Fidel Castro. Good or bad, [...]
It’s damn near impossible to post on Sundays with NFL Redzone in the background but I’ll try. Swoon was the jam back in July and it’s probably the only 9 and a half minute song I can listen to in total satisfaction. I have a Sunday playlist which consists mainly of songs that can sit [...]
Steph used the original version of Sabali waaaay back in the now infamous mai 2009 (The Lost Tape) installment of Le Miel du Mois. I remember not knowing what to think when I first heard the track but being completely captured by the emotion and vibe. The blind couple from Mali recently dropped a 13 [...]

After my freshman year in college I spent the summer in Saratoga causing all sorts of trouble and one of the reasons why I remember that time so well is because of the music on the radio. Summer 2002 was the shit. Hip Hop had the perfect balance of commercialism and authenticity, Styles P had [...]
A lot of my friends are moving out to LA and I can’t understand why. I considered it a few months back when my boy Michael Smith was putting me on to some opportunities out there but I realized how much I needed that New York beat around me and that idea quickly fell through. [...]
From Reasonable Doubt to In My LIfetime Vol. 1, Jay-Z’s approach as a rapper went through some noticeable changes, lyrically and also with choice of production. On his debut, the bulk of the tracks were handled by Clark Kent, Ski Beatz, and the homey DJ Premier. His sophomore effort had a little bit more gloss in it’s production, mostly due to the [...]
When it comes to nu-disco, Jaques Renault has been there and done that. I remember first catching one of his sets at the Tribeca Grand and having one of those life’s greatest moments experiences because of the music. The Brooklyn resident has been in full effect for the last five years and never ceases provide that good [...]
