Fatboy Slim
Bird Of Prey (The Aston Shuffle remix) PRIVATE PREVIEW

This Friday, January 19th, prepare for an epic match – and we aren’t talking about Mayweather vs McGregor. Fatboy Slim, an iconic name in the producing world is taking on some of Australia’s finest with Fatboy Slim vs Australia, a remix album releasing on Skint/BMG. Artists featured on the album include LO’99, The Kite String Tangle, Set Mo, Carmada, Sam La More, Northlane, and the duo we bring you tonight: The Aston Shuffle.

“Fatboy Slim is one of those names that is so legendary, you’d be mad not to say yes if the opportunity arose to work on something he is a part of. It was so great to be able to remix one of his songs, we hope we did the song justice!”

The Australian duo introduce us to their darker side with late night feel compared to the slightly lighter original. Around the 3:30 minute mark we’re introduced to even darker bass cuts, a sound that certainly deserves a spot on a track list for those after-hour events. Enjoy the exclusive first listen and make sure to pre-order the album here!

Unwrapped (ft. Rico Act)

For each of us Birthday parties are a once a year event. However Birthdayy Partyy is here to make sure the party doesn’t stop ever. This duo of twins has come forth with their debut single “Unwrapped” featuring rapper Rico Act. Break out the balloons, red solo cups and any other gear you need, Birthdayy Partyy has officially started.

Coming from Chicago these two have obviously been influenced by house music, but their song isn’t as straightforward as that. The hip-hop introduction really sets the stage for what’s to come – that being some dirty basslines blending the groove of G house with the energy of electro. “Unwrapped” doesn’t stop their, the song changes with the second drop, but we’ll leave that as a surprise for you. It’s only their first single and we’re already at the edge of our seat for more. Safe to say we won’t be leaving Birthdayy Partyy anytime soon! Make sure to take “Unwrapped” home with you by grabbing the free download.

Supernova (ft. Dope D.O.D.)

Apashe has long been a go-to producer for hybrid sounds. His last couple of remixes has seen him inch towards a slightly different route and now he’s back on the original grind with “Supernova” featuring Dope D.O.D. of the Netherlands. Released on Kannibalen Records, this single has all the bass you’d expect.

“Supernova” is a blend of genres including trap, hip-hop and dubstep. The collection of sounds, mixed with Apashe’s international influences, makes for a track that can be enjoyed anywhere, where you’re headbanging to it at a festival or just bumping along to it at home. Dope D.O.D.’s addition to the record brings some appreciated grit to the dirty original. “Supernova” dropped today for anyone looking to add it to their Spotify playlist or get a copy for their digital library.

[Dubstep/Trap] Kai Wachi – Die Young EP

With how amazing Kai Wachi‘s music is, he’s going to live forever through the legacy he is building. This is somewhat ironic given the name of his latest project, Die Young, that was released today on Kannibalen Records. The project is another step in the right direction for Kai who is already steps ahead of most producers.

Officially Die Young features four originals including “LUVSICK” that is already a success in its own right as a single. On top of the hybrid tracks that he’s added to the mix, we get a bonus free download called “No Games” that can only be found on Soundcloud. Our guess is that it has to do with an uncleared vocal sample. It’s good for us though, as we can get this one for free. Even if it wasn’t the entire EP is worth the purchase price. Get ready to get filthy with some bass, Die Young is here. Get your copy online, or add it to your playlists!

[Future Funk] Naxatras – Space Tunnel (Kaptain Remix)

Naxatras
Space Tunnel (Kaptain Remix)

It’s not often you see official remixes by producers for bands that are located a world apart from each other. That happened with Kaptain of San Francisco who was asked to take on “Space Tunnel” by the band Naxatras.

Kaptain’s funky style has breached markets across the world, which isn’t all that surprising considering everyone likes to get groovy. With this Kaptain keeps up the funk, but accents the band’s psychedelic sound with his own hypnotic tone. Part of what makes this remix so incredible is that Kaptain created it without the use of stems because the original track was recorded onto one channel. I’m no producer, but I’m not even sure how you’d go about that. Kaptain succeeded though and now we have a free download to enjoy.

Kai Straw – Cherry Corvette [TMN Premiere]


Kai Straw is set to release his album very soon. Toothpick was incredible, but given the recent singles from GUN, we’re expecting an even better LP this time around. The last single has hit the web today and you’ll be hearing it first here in the dojo. Let’s take a ride in “Cherry Corvette” shall we?

One thing I particularly enjoy about a lot of Kai’s music is that it tells a story. “Cherry Corvette” paints a vibrant picture with its lyrics despite the general tone of the song being much more chill and mysterious. Kai delivers a tasteful single that will usher us into the Fall in style. You’d be mistaken to miss out on this one. “Cherry Corvette” is out today in full, so if you’d like a copy you can grab one now from digital stores or add it to your playlist!
