[Gotta Be] Fresh Coat Mural Festival – LA Arts District – 10/7

We’re gearing up for another trip out to LA. This time, we’ll be hitting up the inagural Fresh Coat Mural Festival, which is hitting the streets of DTLA on October 7th. A beautiful blend of art, music, food, and drinks, this brand spankin’ new block party has something for just about everyone.

Legendary local and national street artists Drew Merritt, Breeze, Vyal, It’s a living, Axis, Carley Ealey, Andrew Hem, and OG Slick will be taking over walls in the Arts District, serving up incredible, live street art for everyone who comes down. On top of that, there are local, curated food trucks from LA dishing out tasty bites, alongside of brews from Angel City Brewing and hand-crafted cocktails featuring Hansen’s Soda.

As if that wasn’t reason enough for you to head down, there’s also a top-notch musical lineup. The day kicks off with old school, hip-hop icons, The Beat Junkies, followed by Peanut Butter Wolf and The Hood Internet. Rounding out the bill are a handful of TMN favorites. Viceroy, who was one of our Resident Artists here at TMN, and the ever-so-chill Poolside. The cherry on top? RJD2 will be closing out the night. We’ve admittedly never seen him live, so you’ll find us front and center as soon as he takes the decks.

The best thing about this fest? It’s free. That’s right. The organizers, The Container Yard and Hansen’s Soda have you covered. All you have to do is RSVP and you’re good to go.

Point Point – Hands feat. Denai Moore (R.O Remix) [TMN Premiere]

Point Point
Hands (feat. Denai Moore) [R.O. Remix]

Point Point‘s single “Hands” featuring Denai Moore was a sonic treat that we, along with many others, fell in love with. Now the producer has brought on a few remixers to take on the original, including R.O. Today we’ve got the premiere of his take on “Hands” in the dojo.

R.O keeps a similar poppy style to the original, but strips down some of the more future elements. What makes this remix particularly special is the fact that R.O keeps it developing from beginning to end, never leaving you back where you already came from. It’s a great minimal flip that is recognizable to the original. R.O knocked this one out of the park without a doubt. Enjoy this one thoroughly over the weekend!

[House] Chris Lake & Chris Lorenzo – Nothing Better

Insomniac Records just may have dropped the hottest track on their catalog so far. Aptly named “Nothing Better” by Chris Lake and Chris Lorenzo, is a historic house record. They nailed everything you look for in an extraordinary song.

“Nothing Better” is no doubt a timeless record despite just dropping today. No matter the release date, it would succeed as a monumental piece of musical art. It’s got some classic undertones that will grab the attention of veteran dance music fans, while bringing in some new flavors for the recently initiated. Catchy and energetic, “Nothing Better” makes a statement with its name and quality. Get your copy of the single from digital stores today.

Hoody Time – KNOCK [TMN Premiere]

Hoody Time
KNOCK

The New Zealand resident hip-hop head Hoody Time is back in the dojo. To kick off the end of the week we’re presenting his newest single “KNOCK” in this premiere. Not only do we have that, but we have a little bonus content for you from camp Hoody Time.

“KNOCK” is a fun track even by Hoody Time standards. He always cooks up off-the-wall tracks that are lively and exciting, but here he gets a bit “goofy” as he states in his own words. The track was produced by Public, aka Justin Manas the former drummer of Stray From The Path. Hoody Time is always a good time, as you’ll see from “KNOCK” as well as the music video for his single “Backpack.” Take some time to experience each and stay tuned for more from Hoody Time!

[R&B/Soul] Little Monarch – No Matter What (starRo Remix)

Little Monarch
No Matter What (starRo Remix)

We’re fairly confident that no matter what you will like this starRO remix. Little Monarch’s single “No Matter What” got a smooth makeover from the Los Angeles resident. His soulful R&B remix is just the perfect thing you need to help get you to the weekend and celebrate properly.

Let’s dive into the track by stating simply that starRO just nailed it, 100%. Instead of focusing on the energy the original had, starRO slowed things down and got a bit more groovy with his take. The original’s material is instantly recognizable, but even for those who love Little Monarch’s version, they’ll be blown away by this one. Have a listen and stay sexy.
