[Denver Event Preview/Ticket Giveaway] TMN Presents: Hayden James – Larimer Lounge – 10/29

TMN Presents:
Hayden James - Larimer Lounge - Denver, CO - 10/29

In a little under three years, Australian wunderkind producer Hayden James has ushered in an entire new wave of listeners into the electronic music arena. When we first heard Hayden James‘ debut single “Permission to Love” on tastemaking imprint Future Classic three years ago, we had a feeling the up ‘n comer was onto something special. After a string of incredibly well received releases including an excellent self-titled EP, and two of the more viral singles we’ve seen in years in “Something About You” & “Just A Lover”, Hayden James is poised to tackle yet another lengthy live tour, and we couldn’t be more excited to help bring his house-leaning, groove-driven sound to Denver this Saturday at the Larimer Lounge.

No stranger to the halls of TMN, including an excellent campaign as our ‘Resident Artist of the Month’ back in September of 2015, Hayden James’ live show is even more consuming than his polished productions, which is why we want to give our readers a chance to come join in on the fun. We will be giving away not one but TWO PAIRS of tickets to this one, simply by clicking on the header of this post, and commenting with your favorite Hayden James tune and BAM!… you’re entered. And for those Ninjas who’d rather not try their luck and just want to have their tickets in hand, you can purchase yours here.

There are a few rules, of course:
– The event is 18+. So, be of age, and be sure to tell all of your friends to enter in order to increase chance of winning!
– You are responsible for your own transportation.
– You must bring a valid form of ID to pick up your tickets at the Larimer Lounge door.

[Indie Dance] Sweater Beats – Did You Wrong feat. MAX

Did You Wrong ft. MAX

Sweater Beats has got a lot going on. Tomorrow he is kicking off the debut of his live tour, For The Cold, and his upcoming EP of the same name is going to drop in the near future. Today, however, we get a sneak peak into his project with his single “Did You Wrong” featuring MAX.

“Did You Wrong” is a roller coaster of feelings that’s equal parts fun and emotional. Kicking off his EP unveiling with this song was a great choice, as it has us and number of his fans dying in anticipation for what is to come. Instead of waiting for the full release date, you can simply attend one of his shows as he will surely be playing out these records live, literally. For The Cold, in tour and song form, will not be something you want to miss out on. Dates, locations and ticketing information can be found at the Sweater Beats website. Grab your tickets, and maybe you’ll catch some ninjas at a show!

[Electronic] White Cliffs feat. Hugh EP – Come Here

White Cliffs ft. Hugh EP
"Come Here" (PRMD DSCVR)

PRMD Music has just started something really cool with their imprint. Recently the independent label started their PRMD DSCVR, a new initiative that will showcase some of the best, and most creative up and coming artists. They’re already on their second release with White Cliffs collaboration with Hugh EP on “Come Here.”

If all the parties involved were going for innovation, they certainly got it right with this original. No specific genre comes to mind when you’re listening to it. It’s just one of those tracks that is just good music, plain and simple. “Come Here” is a cool, crisp production that doesn’t get too wild or crazy. It plays to its tasteful sensibilities, making it an incredibly memorable track that you don’t want to just listen to once, or twice; rather, you’ll be coming back again and again to this one, replaying it over. White Cliffs and Hugh EP really did something special here.

[Future] Sweater Beats – Did You Wrong (Feat. Max)

Did You Wrong ft. MAX

With a very extensive winter tour gearing up this week and a plethora of new tunes released this year, Sweater Beats is giving fans plenty of reasons to turn out and catch him this season. Antonio Cuna, who made his big splash in the internet community with a remix to Flume’s “Drop the Game” in 2014, has built a fairly large international fan base in the years since.

The LA based producer expanded his skill set from unique remixes and edits to original works of his own, leading to a substantial and consistent internet buzz. As if we needed another reason to cover his budding career, Sweater Beats just released an incredible new track with vocalist Max titled “Did You Wrong”. The song blends the fresh and talented crooning of Max with the ingredients that we have come to expect from one of our favorite technically savvy producers.

Listeners will get ample opportunities to catch some of the aesthetic visionary in person, as he embarks on a 31-stop tour beginning this Thursday in San Francisco. As an added bonus, Cuna will be revealing a live set during the “For the Cold” tour, replacing the DJ sets of his previous performances. Catch Sweater Beats in your city this winter here, and stay up to date on his latest releases over at Soundcloud.

David Starfire – Shock (feat. Ragga Twins) [TMN Premiere]

David Starfire
Shock (feat. Ragga Twins)

David Starfire is one of the most distinguishable producers in bass music right now. His out-of-the-box, eclectic style is setting him apart from the rest of the glitch game. Today, he’s releasing his Lapis EP, but we get to premiere his Ragga Twins collaboration “Shock” to you first!

The blending of genres is not new to David. With “Shock” he fuses twerk, hip-hop and eastern sounds with his own unique bass brand. “Shock” is all over the place, in a good way, as its tones and textures bounce back and forth to give the listener an experience that is anything but boring. Ragga Twins add their flavor to the mix, taking the song up a notch as they always do. How David manages to blend all these styles together so seamlessly is beyond us, but we’re glad he is able to bring the world such fresh tunes. Stream “Shock” today and check out the full EP, available on Bandcamp for free!

Seven Lions talks touring, Opeth, and Starry Night Stout [TMN EXCLUSIVE]


We took a trip down memory lane to see just how long we’ve been covering the larger-than-life basslines and heavenly, melodic synths crafted by Jeff Montalvo, better known as Seven Lions. It’s been over four years since he first popped up on our radar, and since then, he’s graced the pages of our site time and time again.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who’s kept tabs on his impressive list of successes over the years, from stellar releases, to unforgettable festival performances. His brand presence has become a household commodity, with many eagerly expecting to catch his sets, whether it be at their favorite club, or the most sought-after festival.

As we continue our Residency with Jeff, we decided it would be a good time to catch back up with him after all these years.

TMN: First off, thank you for coming onboard as our Resident Artist for the month of October. As long time fans, it’s an absolute pleasure to have you. It’s also been three years since we last interviewed you, so it’s great to catch up. Let’s start things off by talking about your most recent release, “Rush Over Me” which you worked on with Illenium and Said the Sky – two Colorado boys. How did this collaboration come to be?

SL: Actually, I had met Trevor in Denver a long time ago when he gave me a flashdrive. The funny thing is – I get those a lot, but a lot of times I don’t have the time to actually listen to them. With Trevor’s, I actually did and it was really good music.

I hit them up and was like, “Hey, I need some fresh ears on this. Do you guys want to collab on this?” Then they worked on it, then I worked on it, then they worked on it.
