Play My Shit (Prod. by PYRMDPLAZA)

So KR linked up with PYRMDPLAZA for a track that is one of the best Electronic and Hip-Hop collaborations we have heard. “Play My Shit” is a record that transcends genre and delivers a high energy, yet relaxing type of sound. The original track “Glassss” was released on Soulection, White Label: 011 by PYRMDPLAZA. Once the LA native grabbed a hold of the beat he poured his heart and soul on it. It’s rare now a days to find rappers who can deliver such highly emotional content but KR continues to supply only the best. With Trap percussions, eccentric vocal chops and impeccable flow you are going to find this one hard to stay away from.

[Rock] Imaginary People – Simple Life

imaginary
imaginarypeoplenyc
Simple Life

Somewhere on a dusty road, most likely in a Quentin Tarantino film, “Simple Life” echoes throughout a sweeping view of a desolate desert and a classic American car speeding down the sun-soaked pavement.

Ok, maybe we took things a little far there with the storytelling, but it’s not hard to do when listening to this song from this brand new artist. Yes, while it may seem like NYC-based Imaginary People have been playing for decades, what with their highly engaging and infectious sound, but their debut album release hasn’t even happened yet. In fact, this is our first look at it.

There’s something we just can’t put our finger on with “Simple Life.” There’s a certain reminiscence of Americana that’s undeniably memorable. Maybe it’s the vibrato-rich vocals from front man Dylan Von Wagner. Maybe it’s the hazy, heavily distorted guitar work. Maybe it’s the arrangement. Whatever it is, it feels familiar, and it feels like we want to keep listening over and over again.

Folly & The Hunter ➵ Awake

For a good portion of you out there, the weather is slowly changing, leaves are starting to sprout, days are starting to get longer, and your musical selections are about to get sunny, shimmery, and uplifting.

In celebration of the riddance of those icy winter months, we’re highlighting one of our favorite Indie Folk acts, Folly & The Hunter. This Montreal four-piece recently released a new tune, and it’s everything we’ve come to know and love about this up-and-coming act. With shuffling percussion, soaring piano chords, and impeccable vocal harmonies, all we can do is sit back and sport a goofy toothy grin.

When asked about the song, the band had this to say:

“Awake” was written when I had writer’s block. The song is about creating something out of nothing and forcing yourself to wake up to find spontaneity & passion in your life.

So, as the temperature starts to heat up, head out and find some adventure. Whether it’s in your own backyard, your city, or somewhere in a remote part of the globe, just do it. And, let Folly & The Hunter provide a welcome addition to your accompanying playlists.

[Album Review] Kill Paris – Galaxies Between Us

Kill Paris

One of the main men behind the future funk scene, Kill Paris, finally released his debut album on April 14th, 2015. Galaxies Between Us offers up ten tracks released completely for free through his own label, Sexy Electric, which is home to free music exclusively.

Galaxies Between Us is a cosmic adventure through time and space that is comprised solely of good vibes. Even with the one colder song “You Don’t Love Me No More,” Corey manages to convey a certain level of alacrity in it. From the start with the bubbly “Arrival” until the end with the mellowed out “Tropical Dinosaur” you are embraced by an atmosphere of smooth, groovy goodness. Favorites include the introductory track, the second track on the album “Gonna Get High” and the collaboration with the firey future producer Royal, who’s released an official remix for Tegan and Sara.

Kill Paris has already made his mark on the scene, and with this album he further solidifies himself as a leading producer in the game. Identity is not something that is easily established and continuously molded, but Kill Paris manages to keep up the harvesting of some of the freshest tunes around that keep in line with his musical vision. No matter what flavors he uses, you know when you have a Kill Paris tune on your hands.

Like we mentioned before, Galaxies Between Us has been released for free, so all you need to do is head to his website for a copy. Moreover, if you enjoy the album, spread it around to your friends and loved ones!

option4 Talks Red Rocks, Bagels, and his Upcoming Originals [TMN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW]

option4

Each month, our Residency Program brings an intriguing artist, and we’re always excited to get to know a little bit more about them, their history, and their craft.

While the city of Denver might be very familiar with option4, we’re guessing there are a fair number of you who are unfamiliar with this Mile High City icon. We’re going to change that right here, right now. Crack open a cold one, grab a bagel, and get to know Mr. Brennen Brylarly.

TMN: Let’s kick things off by talking about your upcoming releases, if you can speak about them.

O4: Right now, we’re in a different process now with everything option4. Last year, I came out with all those releases, and before I knew it, I had put out 16 releases. Way too much. I got caught up in that remix world. I needed to pay rent.

I wasn’t really focused on option4 as an artist. I was touring and working on these remixes, which are fun, and I like all of them, but it wasn’t really stretching myself as an artist, per se.

I went on a hiatus and got in the studio. I started working on original records. We’re doing it all proper this time – shopping toplines, shopping labels. To me, it doesn’t matter if I have another record come out for the next six months. I know that when they come out, they will be released correctly with the proper PR. Hopefully, people appreciate them.

A lot of time and effort has gone into these records. They are ready to go. I’m not going to tour at all this summer. I’m going to play HARD Red Rocks this summer and Bisco, and that’s it. I’m going to spend the rest of the summer in the studio.

TMN: We’ve had the pleasure of hearing some of the new stuff. A lot of it feels like it has…a lot of soul. It has emotion. Why is that important to you when you go into recording something?

O4: Right now, my main thing is – I’m just trying to do what I enjoy. Last year, I was making all these big bassline records. They’re really fun to play out in the club, but I feel like everyone is doing that. That sound is rinsed, at the moment.

Last year, there was an explosion of big bass line driven house. Single melodies draped over single note basslines, going up and down. That was cool, and it was fun. But, somehow, that became “Deep House.”

Everything is going two different ways. You have what everyone is calling Deep House from the past couple of years. You have all these EDM kids who think EDM is stupid, which, we’ve been saying forever.

They feel that way now, all the sudden, so they want to go into this thing. So, the people who were making a little bit more mature beats at the time – they’re going different routes. One way is – they’re going a lot heavier, more monotonous, darker, repetitive beats. I want to go the other way. I love techno, but I want to make music that is emotive, but is still based upon the bass and the drums.

End Of The Night (Louis Futon Remix) [Free Download]

Even though this track dropped a week ago, and we featured it on our Friday Party Playlist, we felt the urge to give it a moment in the limelight with a full write up.

Those of you who’ve been following us for some time know that we’re all about what this Philly-based producer puts out, and this remix of “End the Night” is no different. This time around, Louis Futon has taken a step back from his future-rich sounds to dial up a groovy tune, rich with classic instrumentation of his own and plenty of elements from the original production.

While we still have another Party Playlist coming out later today, nothing says “Friday,” more than this tune. Press play and get ready for the weekend.
