Andrew Wyatt, better known to most as the front man of indie powerhouse electronic pop band Miike Snow, will be exploring his more classical side in his debut solo album, Descender. Set for release on INGRID/Downtown Records on April 16th, the project is said to embody “32 minute meditation into the darker side of Andrew Wyatt not seen on his latest endeavors with Miike Snow.”
The first single ‘And Septimus…’ does provide some nostalgia back to Miike Snow but soon the orchestral instrumentation takes one to a different place amongst sweeping string arrangements and much more vulnerable vocals from what we have ever seen from Wyatt.

Daughter has the ability to bare open the emotional core of every song with her somber yet reflective vocals that echo a diary entry of an open heart. “Love”, the closing track from The Wild Youth EP, remains to this day one of the most profoundly connecting tracks of her repertoire. Seeing someone remix a Daughter original always makes me cringe a bit as far few can give its deserved justice. However, back in 2012, producer Synkro released a soft and delicate edit that complimented “Love”‘s original structure, dragging the track out to a much deeper place. Today, Swedish duo Zebra Safari take this same edit “a few steps further” incorporating trip-hop elements wrapped around beautifully light strings that produce moments of pure zen.

The collected and wonderful Montreal indie pop/dream pop band, Young Galaxy, are following their delightful first single ‘Pretty Boy’ with the surprisingly romantic new track ‘Fall For You’ off their forthcoming LP Ultramarine. Full of ecstatic echoing chords, uplifting gleaming vocals from the beautiful Catherine McCandless and a pulsating instrumentation, waiting for the official release on April 23 via Paper Bag Records just seems insensible.

Zeds Dead & Omar Linx, the true pioneers of letting hip-hop and heavy electronic music exist so organically together, gave away their stems on Beatport last year to spark a remix contest. The result was simply a massive success with Butch Clancy, Michael White and Clark Kent submitting their well grounded contributions. We can’t confirm this is a direct result of the contest, but today Congorock unleashed their very own throbbing remix of ‘Cowboy’.
Always with some African-drum influence, the emerging star of the world’s biggest dance floor and producer of the catchiest conceptions (most memorable for ‘Babylon’ and Swedish House Mafia’s ‘One’ remix) infuses his own style and trumps the original with a refreshing take.

Continuing the epic motto of summertime all the time, Viceroy is back for another warm jam. “This Is How We Do It” was the 1995 number-one hit single by American R&B singer Montell Jordan. It originally featured Jordan singing over an enhanced sample of Slick Rick’s “Children’s Story” and now San Francisco producer and TMN favorite Viceroy brings an ample amount of nostalgia with a funk infused remix. Bright as the sunlight reflecting off the water drops from the skin after a refreshing dip in the pool, Viceroy shows how he does it, every time, in summertime.

Unlike people staying home on President’s Day, Trap does not take a day off. HeRobust, otherwise known as Hayden Kramer, is an emerging producer from Atlanta, GA who’s been an early adapter of all things that have a beat, from hip/hop to dubstep. His latest fascination for trap music has forced him to contribute to the ever growing community releasing today a MONSTER remix of Borgore & Carnage‘s now ubiquitous bass pounding track “Incredible”. The result is simply a bulletproof twerk track that sounds bigger than life itself.
