Le Miel du Mois – Octobre & Novembre

marie_antoinette

From Et Musique Pour Tous:

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund

Dwayne Carter Jr. is full of good lines but the following is hands down my favorite…

If I die today it be a holiday…”

If there’s ever a moment in my life when my perspective is so off or I’m doing something so terribly against my true nature that makes me feel otherwise then there’s something wrong. Life is too short to be dishonest with yourself or others and nothing matters that much to put up with bullshit from anyone. I’m lucky to have music, it’s the thing I love, it’s what I do for a living, it’s what makes me happy and it’s never let me down. The more I get into it, the more fulfilling and inspired I am and I thankful for it.

Which brings me to todays post. It’s important to have something to look forward to every day, week, month, year. Keep yourself going and make everyday interesting however you can. For many of us here and our readers of course, one thing that’s made our days and months better is the release of LMDM, our first and most beloved mixtape series by Steph Lund. Recently, I’ve gotten a few angry emails, frustrated request and desperate music love letters from folks asking about the tape. If it’s gone forever, why we’re slacking? etc. We appreciate it all and we listen, if there’s anything that keeps this train going is the passion we have for music and knowing that others share it with us. That said, there’s no excuse, Steph and I are just busy mofo’s these days. We both left NYC this year and have been 100 miles and running since keeping up with our clients, personal lives and so on. EMPT and LMDM we’re created on and still run on pure love so bare with us as we learn to manage the new demands. That said, we’re playing catchup and brining you a combined Octobre & Novembre that is pure concentrated amazing. Decembre soon to follow.

As is customary this tape is nothing like those before it and perhaps the only thing it shares with the them is the amazing feeling you get while listening to it. This one in particular has a great balance, I haven’t seen Steph in a while but I can tell these are the good times. I won’t Speak for her but just know that every song fantastic and the fast forward button is worthless while listening to this, enjoy…

and everything’s unrolling from then to now

Bronze Whale – The Remix Kings of the Ocean

retro-city-bronze-whale-remix-adventure-club--L-rXMtxU

Bronze Whale has done some of our favorite remixes – Honey Claws’ ‘I Love Summer,’ Youth Lagoon’s ‘Daydream,’ Lips’ ‘Everything to Me’ and Adventure Club’s ‘Retro City’ – hard to just list one or two, because all of these are really v. well done. They started working with Ianborg a few months back and decided to collaborate with him on the recent Weeknd track. From BW direct: “Ian is incredible at arrangement and vocal stutters, so he really set the pace and spine of the track. We laid in our bass and drum sound and it really flowed together”

Get it on your weekend list:
The Weeknd – Twenty Eight (Ianborg & Bronze Whale Bootleg) by Bronze Whale

And please do yourself a favor and play this, frequently, infrequently, your choice but we’d go with  – all. the. time.:
