Up Is The Down Is The
Two Places At Once

It’s not every day we stumble across a stellar, up-and-coming artist from Boise, Idaho. In fact, this may be the first time we’ve ever written up an Idahoan. But, today proves that the state’s official nickname holds true, as we uncover this gem of a song, “Two Places at Once.”

If this is the first time you’re catching wind of multi-instrumentalist Andrew Martin, also known as Up Is The Down Is The, you’re definitely not alone. With only a small following of a few hundred fans, you’re in the unique position to start supporting him from the very beginning, something that holds a special place in every music lover’s heart.

“Two Places at Once” is officially coming out on this act’s debut album, Memory, which is due out on August 3rd. It’s an interesting blend of indie rock and R&B, rooted in sultry guitars, and powerful, wistful, and highly infectious vocals. Its calming yet bold nature gives the song a unique weight, showcasing Andrew’s affinity for acts like James Blake, Sampha, Radiohead, and Madlib.

Make sure to follow Up Is The Down Is The across the board, on Facebook, Twitter, and Soundcloud.

Coolwater Set & RAC
The Coast ft. Jvzel

Coolwater Set is a project made up of Far East Movement and the Scandinavian artist, Autolaser. As if that doesn’t already sound sweet, they bring in house legend RAC to collaborate on their latest single, “The Coast.” Right now they only have two songs out and we haven’t seen new music from Coolwater Set since last year’s single “Up To No Good” so I honestly didn’t see this one coming. On “The Coast” theses artists blend their own unique styles into a sick electronic/hip-hop groove. Jvzel keeps the cool with R&B backing vocals as the rhythms and bass build together. The resulting tune possesses a diverse sound, one that almost everyone can appreciate. After tuning in, you’ll be happy to hear that a full Coolwater Set EP is on the way.

2ToneDisco x Dreamcasts – Glimmer [TMN Premiere]

As team of music bloggers, we strive to find acts that stand out. Sometimes those acts join forces to deliver a song that stands out even among each artist’s discography. Today, we’re lucky to premiere “Glimmer” which is the result of such previous actions. Who created it? That would be 2ToneDisco and Dreamcasts.

Together these video game loving producers melded their sounds together to create the future-tinged single “Glimmer.” The really cool thing about this melodic masterwork is that it shares a style similar to class games, while bringing it into contemporary times and infusing it with acoustic elements. “Glimmer” is one of those good vibes tracks that will cheer you up in an instant, and never let you get rid of the grin through the piece’s three minute lifespan. Although the song comes in at just over the three minute mark, chances are high that you will be playing it again, and again. Much like we have prior to this premiere. Although, that’s not entirely true, as we’re still jamming to it. One last thing, 2ToneDisco and Dreamcasts dished this one out as a free download, so don’t sleep on it!

Haux – Seaside (Turtle Rework) [TMN PREMIERE]

Seaside (Turtle Rework)

Earlier this month, a fusion of dream-folk and calming electronica came together via a budding young artist named Haux. His debut EP, All We’ve Known, is a 6-track collection of delightfully transient, wandering, and simply encapsulating work, highlighted by positively stunning vocals. One of our favorite stand-outs, “Seaside,” recently got a proper remix treatment from the oft-mysterious Turtle.

Turtle’s Rework features a wonderfully long build up that slowly layers in elements, creating a gorgeously-crafted ambient soundscape. From fluttering synths, to deep bass hits, to the eventual incorporation of subdued percussion, each accentuates Haux’s glowing vocals with a gradual, textural, and enveloping manner. All that’s left to do is close your eyes, lie back, and get lost for a few blissful minutes.

Currently, you can pick up All We’ve Known through Akira Records on Spotify or iTunes.

[House] Boehm – Future Self

Future Self

Romania’s Boehm is one of those producers that has released great song after great song. It seems that the streak won’t ever stop. He recently came out with a new song called “Future Self,” and we’re here to tell you it continues his streak.

“Future Self” is a pop-tinged house record that features the vocalist Melody Noel who, with one song, has jumped on our radar in a big way. Her performance in this song is beautiful; prepare to get some frisson while her voice soothes your ears. Good thing is, there’s more great components to this song that come from Boehm. He doesn’t let the vocal be the only thing that shines in this song as his instrumental is a home run. Highly melodic, “Future Self” is something you’ll be humming in your head until the end of the Summer for sure, and maybe until the end of the year. It’s one of those special records.
