[Hip-Hop] Action Bronson – Baby Blue (Feat. Chance The Rapper) (Prod. Mark Ronson)

With Action Bronson‘s Mr. Wonderful LP due out later this month, the Queens native has decided to share yet another outstanding track from the highly anticipated project. After recently hopping on the remix for Mark Ronson‘s smash hit, “Uptown Funk,” Bronson has teamed up with the veteran producer one more time for “Baby Blue,” with Chance The Rapper taking over duties on the somewhat hilarious chorus. Although “Baby Blue” is all about dealing with relationship woes, the song remains playful in tone. Already the fourth single from Bronson’s upcoming album, this might be our favorite record from the project yet. If this one doesn’t inspire a pre-order for the album we’re not sure what will.

Mr. Wonderful is set to hit shelves on March 24th. Stream the track above, and hit the jump to catch Bronson’s ridiculous video for “Actin’ Crazy”

Electric Mantis

He’s been slightly quiet as of late, but Electric Mantis breaks his silence with an enormous new tune that’s set to be on his new EP, BRAINCASE. The influence of the first tune that really gained him exposure, “Flips and Flops, Drips and Drops,” is apparent in “Infatuation,” but that’s the sound we’ve grown to really enjoy in his work. There’s unique mesh of glitch, hip-hop, and futuristic elements that deliver a result so heavy that your speakers might not survive after a few listens. Electric Mantis has kept his head low and truly been working tirelessly to craft his niche in electronic music, and BRAINCASE is going to be his next big shot to truly shine.

Justin Jay Talks Dirtybird, Larry Levan, and Marriage Proposals [TMN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW]

They Don't Know (Justin Jay Remix)

This month we had the chance to flex our tastemaking muscle by featuring one of the hottest exports in dance music, who has made a name at the tender age of 21 on one of the hottest labels in dance music. Of course, we are speaking of Justin Jay, and Claude VonStroke’s Dirtybird Records cohorts. Last week, the deep and tech-house sparkplug gifted us with a TMN Resident Playlist, and this weekend, we got a chance to get a little more in depth in regards to all things Justin Jay. Check out the entire transcript below.

TMN: First of all, we wanted to thank you for taking the time to be our featured ‘Resident Artist of the Month’. We’ve actually been closely following your career arc since How Goes the Dynamite, which if we’re not mistaken was almost three years ago now, which is absurd to think that you’re only what, 21 years of age now?

JJ: Yeah it’s pretty crazy, man!

TMN: It’s hard to believe how rapidly developed and mature your sound has already become in a relatively short amount of time putting out tangible releases. Especially within a niche in which many American listeners wind up not actually discovering until the usual pit-stops through ‘EDM’, or festival sized dubstep and trap. From a personal standpoint, have you had any exact moments which you feel helped shaped the scope of your music production or steered you away from more commercial sounds?

JJ: Growing up in LA was really powerful because me and my friends were exposed to artists like MSTRKRFT and Justice back in 2007. We got into it then because it sounded new and exciting. That craving for freshness is huge.

TMN: Some of us Ninjas love to geek out about artist’s studios. What programs, machines, synths or anything else are taking up the most amount of your time currently as a producer? And what does your entire studio layout look like when laying down a new Justin Jay track?

JJ: I’m super bare bones. I have a midi keyboard and a laptop, which is all I really use. Although, I recently got a few old-school drum machines, which have been super fun to work with.

[NEW] Kanye West – All Day (Feat. Allan Kingdom & Theophilus London)

So Help Me God
Kanye West
All Day (feat. Allan Kingdom & Theophilus London)

Yeezy season is officially upon us. If you need any proof, look no further than Kanye’s performance at last week’s BRIT Awards. After tearing the house down in the UK, fans were clamoring to get their hands on Ye’s new surprise team-up with Theophilus London & Allan Kingdom. Well, the wait is finally over, as we now have our hands on the CDQ version of the new track.

“All Day” is already the fourth single we’ve heard from Ye’s upcoming album, So Help Me God, following “Only One,” “FourFiveSeconds” and “Wolves.” Though we thought we had some kind of idea of what direction the album was heading in sonically, this latest single throws a wrench in all of our expectations. But then again, Kanye is not known as one to follow expectations. We guess the only way to truly find out is when the album drops later this year. Chances are it’s coming sooner than you think.

Unfortunately, the weekend is over. Those glorious two days of freedom have come to a screetching halt, leaving us bewildered, exhausted, and less-than-enthused to stare Monday in the face again. Copious amounts of coffee and a sugary breakfast snack might be your usual go-to at times like these, but today, we have something much more effective for assuaging your Monday blues.

Coming off of the upcoming album (3/31), “TASTEY” showcases the high octane, infectious, and grin-inducing nature of producer/multi-instrumentalist LA+CH. This tune in particular boasts a spectacular culmination of club pleasing beats, pop-infused vocals, and live instrumentation. Most notably, the percussion perfectly accentuates the heavily treated, repeating guitar riff, creating something that brings back fond memories of jamming out to Justice back in the day.

Make sure you keep tabs on this up-and-coming talent by following him on Soundcloud, facebook, and twitter. This album is one you won’t want to miss.

The Chill Dojo #121

chill dojo

We’re ensuring you kick off the week with a smile on your face thanks to some fresh young talent coming out of the UK. Ollygon’s chipper take on ‘Promise’ is bubbling with brightness and positivity, with an infectious groove to back up all its youthful enthusiasm. Loaded with generous helpings of recognizable pop culture samples, this track is far more than novelty though, that change-up displaying just how much musical expertise is at play here. With the mood set right now, it’s time to radiate more sunshine courtesy of a European triple-threat in Freddy Verano, De Hofnar, and MÖWE. With their powers combined, they’ve crafted a summer-ready chill house delight topped off with catchy vocals and a glorious piano melody. You can picture this one playing at your favorite outdoor venue while the drinks are flowing. In similar fashion, Dutch duo Larrykoek have brewed a special little acoustic number with plenty of kick. The refreshing cocktail of joyful melody and dance floor beat make for the perfect fuel to your next summer party. LA producer Matt DiMona continues our obsession with this week’s feel-good vibe as he adds a little deep house flare to the stunning LANY original. The beauty in this remix lies in how all the elements are designed to amplify the vocals, and the pace is treated with pure finesse all throughout.

The happiness flows much deeper than that for edition 121 though, and we guarantee your grin won’t fade until well after you’re done here. Peace out.
