Fairchild – Breathless [TMN PREMIERE]

Press Shot

This week always has such a strange feel to it, at least for those of us in the states. Being a holiday week, everything seemingly slows down, giving us the opportunity to focus on more than just the daily grind. With that in mind, we’ve been fortunate enough to dig back through submissions and hand-select gems that deserve some of that newfound time and attention you have. And today’s focus is all about Manchester-based indie rock act Fairchild.

After experimenting for years, trying to nail down their sound, this six-piece teamed up with producer Catherine Marks, who has previously worked with acts like Foals and Wolf Alice. After a two EPs, a double A-side, and some touring through Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, China and North America, the act is now back in the studio and ready to release some more greatness to the masses.

Today’s single, “Breathless” will be available on SoundCloud immediately following our premiere. Boasting an intricately layered soundscape rife with wavering guitar licks, haunting synths, and understated percussion, it carries a powerful persona in a matter of minutes. The melancholy lyrics add an additional memorable edge to the entire experience, leaving us eagerly looking forward to the next listen through.

Make sure to keep an eye out for Fairchild by following them on SoundCloud, Facebook and Twitter. We can assure you that more material is on the way soon.

[Electronic] Pumpkin Feat. Kyrstyn Pixton – Shifting Things

Shifting Things Ft. Kyrstyn Pixton

Thanksgiving is only days away and we are all experiencing a strange combination of emotions. The stress mounts for those tackling that outrageous menu while also trying to make that turkey browned to perfection. But while we’re counting down the days to that mouth-watering stuffing and buttered mashed potatoes, why not enjoy some tunes to hold you over?

Today we’re bringing you “Shifting Things,” a brand new release from a Los Angeles-based artist with a name that has never been more fitting for this time of year, Pumpkin. “Shifting Things” pulls you into a place of tranquility, beckoning you with mixture of spellbinding production and the soft vocals of Kyrstyn Pixton, whose airy presence catapults the song into an intangible world all its own. As the weather turns cold, we tend to strive for a more soothing selection of songs, and these two have banded together to define that shift with a tune that epitomizes the aspect of serenity as a whole. Take a breath, slow down tonight, and enjoy the beauty around you with this stunning and celestial creation.

[Future] SevnthWonder & Deverano – Can I / Maria I’m Drunk


While music aficionados are spending these late-November days at Friendsgivings and being as unproductive as possible in preparation for the holidays, one ninja-favorite has been hard at work, dropping multiple collaborative tracks in the past few days.

Mateus Almeida, known for his production skills under the name SevnthWonder, has been steadily dropping tunes throughout 2015, but this may be his biggest month to date. The first, titled “Can I”, was released mid-month in tandem with Deverano and an up-and-coming producer who goes by the name of Unknown.

Can I (ft. Deverano)

In what can loosely be described as Future R&B, “Can I” is the first of two tracks released by Sevnth featuring the rangey talents of Staten Island rapper Deverano. Although only four minutes long, the track displays a key element sometimes lost in the genre: patience. “Can I” doesn’t give an impression of being in a hurry to get to a particular crescendo or hook; this quality is particularly noticeable in part because the same cannot be said for much of electronic music produced as of late.

While the subject matter itself has been covered at length (look no further than Lido & Santell’s Passion Project EP last month for evidence), the stylization of SevnthWonder is still a novelty without seeming gimmicky in the least.

Maria Im Drunk (Ft. Deverano) (Travis Scott Cover)

The next release, titled “Maria, I’m Drunk”, and released via Tune Collective is a progressive take on a recent hip-hop hit by fellow Houstonian Travi$ Scott.

With Deverano once again on the vocals, SevnthWonder takes the seven minute anthem and flips it on its head. In scrubbing all evidence of the sometimes over-the-top crooning by Young Thug, Sevnth manages to cut the fat in his version, retaining elements from the early parts of the original song.

By focusing exclusively on the introductory portion – his cover forgoes the bridge and breakdown sections of Justin Bieber as well – SevnthWonder sneaks a fiercely deep bassline under the choruses, creating an end product that is both melodic and extremely satisfying.

Even more recent than these two tracks, SevnthWonder dropped a third track this month, “Capsun”, which we premiered earlier this month here“Can I” is available at ClickDJ, while “Maria, I’m Drunk” can also be downloaded for free at Hive,

[Progressive] ATB – Ecstasy (ARMNHMR & DATHAN Flip)

Ecstasy (ARMNHMR & DATHAN Flip)

Here’s a track for some Monday motivation. It’s almost a guarantee that magic happens everytime ARMNHMR and DATHAN go in the studio together. These guys can cook up something amazing, evident in the success of their remixes “Gold Dust”, “Disarm You” and “Secrets”. They decided to join forces once again to put a spin on a major throwback tune, ATB‘s “Ecstacy”, and definitely did it justice.

The infectious melody by the vocals are accompanied by these soaring synth stabs. The dynamic outfit of the track will provide an adrenaline overdose, most apparent in the numerous different drops in the track. If you’re a fan of dance music, this will definitely be nostalgic and refreshing at the same time. It’s intriguing to see progressive dance elements from different times fuse together. Grab this as a free download and show these guys some support!

Colleagues – Talk It Out (Branded James Remix) [TMN PREMIERE]

Talk It Out (Branded James Remix)

We first became enamoured with the playful, summery, electro-pop nature of Swedish band Colleagues back in 2013, after we came across their highly infectious tune “Visits.” Since then, they’ve had a myriad of successful releases, and the latest, “Talk it Out,” comes off their much-anticipated debut EP release Visits.

Today we’re excited to bring you a tasty remix of that aforementioned tune, which comes all the way from The Golden Gate City, by up-and-coming producer Branded James. These two acts had previously crossed paths a few years back when James dialed up an interpretation of their track “Parents House.” Since then, they’ve apparently kept in touch, providing us with this groovy little premiere you’re listening today.

Flipping the shimmering synth-pop tune into a lovely house rendition, this San Fran resident has outfitted it with a sultry bassline, danceable percussion, and carefully extracted samples. While the warm-weather vibes from those high pitched iconic synths are gone, we’re still left with a beautiful connection to the original through the pensive nature of the vocal delivery.

Keep tabs on everything Colleagues and Branded James by following them on SoundCloud.
