Bobby Nourmand – Mind (The Remixes)

Back in early July Bobby Nourmand released his original single “Mind” featuring DOC & Goodmorning through Potion. Today an extension of the project has come our way to share. Mind (The Remixes) is here in full with three bustling cuts.

As you would guess coming from the Potion team, this remix EP is all house. The great thing about this project is that each remix has its own sound, delivering different nuances to Bobby’s record. Parx gets super techy with the first take, while Tom & Collins is more of a peak time hit. Lastly, Limits comes through with the most unique and deep take on the song. All together these flips make for a strong EP that does Bobby’s “Mind” justice. If you haven’t heard the original, we’ve included it too!

[Electro] Downlowd – Well Connected

Downlowd
Well Connected

Get ready for some good ol’ electro. Downlowd has come out of hiding and ended his hiatus to deliver his single “Well Connected” to the world. His new story begins and the first tale is here in full, out now on all digital platforms.

“Well Connected” is a a cerebral electro heater. It starts out with an intriguing vocal monologue that is a bit satirical with its content. After the rather unique introduction Downlowd bursts us into a bustling beat characterized by the almighty bassline. His is dirty in the classic sense – not overly compressed and gritty like much of the dubstep of today whose sound design has permeated house music. What makes this track so exceptional though is that it grows from beginning to end. Downlowd didn’t simply copy and paste, then add a few simple things to the latter half. He truly delivered on an in-depth record.

[Music Video] Boy Bjorn – Gunpoint

Let Boy Bjorn whisk you away with his new project “Gunpoint.” For a track with such a name, you wouldn’t think you’d get something so relaxed and laid-back as you do with this original. Not only do we have the song to share, but we have an emotional music video as well. Boy Bjorn put together a striking video with a dark ambiance about it that makes for quite the viewing. Muted colors plague the visuals which set the tone nicely with the ominous song playing in the back. Overall both the song and video are superb. Some of you might already be familiar with Boy Bjorn too as he is Brian from Foreign Fields!

MOHA – A-Side [TMN Premiere]

Moha
A-Side

Featuring eclectic, up and coming artists with prominent potential is the lifeblood around here at TMN. Which is why, when we came across the first single from French-Senegalese artist Moha‘s debut LP FIT, the appropriately titled alt-pop R&B burner “A-Side”, we knew we had to jump all over it and get it into the ears of our readers.

Immediately, Moha’s unique musical fusion of African, French, and US influenced sounds is apparent, riding along elegantly picked guitar and shifting percussion which dive head first into a sea of gently raspy vocal reverberations. They way Moha so effortlessly wraps those gauzy vocals around its tightly wound production is quite consuming. As muted horns unfurl into “A-Side”‘s catchy chorus, it’s quite difficult to not stay stuck throughout its duration. Like his following, which has shunned the typical social media directed aesthetic and outside influence, Moha builds his music organically, layering his own playing on multiple instruments with powerful songwriting to create a sound and album that we are enthusiastically anticipating the release of. Until the full release of FIT, enjoy Moha’s “A-Side” served up fresh as a TMN Premiere above.
