em:t - Discography (1994-1998)



em:t, a shining star that burned bright, released some amazing ambient music in its brief existence. It has a hardcore, cultish following, and the original releases are tough (i.e. costly) to come by.

Below is every regular em:t release (except 302 Acid Live).

Because of the generosity of others here and other online caches all of them are separate track versions except those listed below.

The only ones so far not available in separate track versions are:

Lucid Dream 0098
Item 003 Various
Item 004 Various
Item 006 International Peoples Gang

Because these are out of print and command exorbitant prices for original copies (of which the artists will never see a dime), it's a privilege to be a clearinghouse so others can experience this music.

0094 - Various (1994) (256 kbps) Artwork

0095 - Gas (1995) (192 kbps) Artwork

0096 - Lucid Dreams (1996) Part1//Part2 Artwork

0097 - Slim (1997) (192 kbps) Artwork

0098 - Natural Language (1998) Part1//Part2 (320 kbps) Artwork

1194 - Woob (1994) (192 kbps) Artwork

ITEM 005 - Gel-Sol 1104 (2004) (aka "Music Made for You... And by You I Mean Me") Part1//Part2 (320 kbps) Artwork

ITEM 007 - Gaudi : Testa 1105 (2005) (256 VBR) Artwork

ITEM 008 - International Peoples Gang (2006)

Many of these were released in the U.S. on Instinct Records. Instinct also released several compilation albums representing em:t artists:

em:t explorer (1996) Part1//Part2//Part3//Part4 (320 kbps) Info

em:t Beat Exploration (1998) - Part1//Part2 (320 kbps) Info

And, finally, all the artwork at once:

Part1//Part2//Part3//Part4//Part5//Part6//Part7//Part8//Part9

Some of these albums appear to have been re-released at some point or other but as far as I can tell they are also out of print.

Also, some of the artists are still making music. You can find more information on the tribute site below.

In the meantime, enjoy. It may just whet your appetite enough to track down the originals.

  1. I have originals of these that I can send to you as individual tracks:

    3395 International Peoples Gang
    5595 various (no title)

    and I've got these that were released on Instinct:

    em:t 0094 (1994)
    em:t 2000 (2cd comp, 1995)
    em:t Explorer (2cd comp, 1996)
    em:t Beat Exploration (1998)

    I'm pretty sure that the 2 double cd comps are duplicates of imports, I'd have to check the track listings. Anyway, I'll start rippin'zippin' and sendin' to ya. (I hope that others will provide some too - this is really good stuff and was always hard to find!)
    thanks
    Drew

  2. I've got AppleLossless and AAC versions for undark3396, carl stone1196, and the Explorer, 1197, 2295 and 5595 compilations. I've also got mp3s of 0094, 0095, 0097, 1195, 2000, 2296, 3394. The mp3s are individual tracks (192 or 256k) that I collected from other places.

    You're welcome to any and all. Thanks for collecting these together.

  6. Just re-ripped em:t 2000 - can verify for sure that cd 2 is the same as the 3394 compilation, the name popped up when I put the cd in.

    Sending you 4 parts for that one - 320 rate creates huge files, but I think it's worth it for this stuff.

    Glad to help - I've found a lot of good music here and am definitely happy to pay you back in some wayl

  7. Aorto,

    I've made 320k mp3s of the lossless files, and packaged together every em:t album I have, but my upload speed is crap. We'd be days waiting for me to get them into my dropbox or on RapidShare. I'll put the files on a FTP site I have direct access to and send you the info. You can take whatever you haven't gotten already. That'll be in about 12 hours or so.

    Chris
