Originally recorded as an Ebauche DJ set at Swagger in Cambodia, this is a very special mix as it’s exclusively showcasing tracks from one of my all-time favourite record labels, Em:t Records (aka Emit records).
Sadly the record label is no longer active, having released material in the 90’s before closing down, and then again in the early 00’s before meeting the same fate and shutting down again in 2006.
For many years I have been slowly collecting as much of the material released by Em:t Records but still have quite a few to find. However, I decided I had enough to dedicate an entire Swagger DJ set to this great label, and hopefully the original artists will be pleased to see their work combined in this way.
Get the original releases!
If you’re interested in buying some of this music you can find a few releases still active on the web. Both Woob and Gas are active and I highly recommend buying Gas 0095 and everything that Woob has – really high quality ambient electronic music! You can find Gel-Sol’s newer releases on Bandcamp, but for his Em:t release you can head over to Emusic.com where you can find Gel-Sol, International People’s Gang, 302 Acid, and Gaudi:Testa. For Lucid Dreams 0096, Beatsystem 2297, and the two compilations it’s not such an easy task. You can get 2297, 0096, 0094, and 0004 on Amazon. There also seems to be quite a lot of Em:t releases on Grooveshark, but I’m doubtful as to whether anyone is getting any money from plays on there.
If you can use Bandcamp where possible then the original artists are getting paid! Other than that, it’s a treasure hunt to find these amazing releases and unlock the audio treasures inside.
I hope you enjoy this four (and some!) hour mix, put it on, sit back, and relax.
