Unknown Song feat. Paulina Eisenberg

Gathering deserving momentum with their infections and honest approach inclusive to both lyrics and melody, Milky Chance is on their way to solidify their presence in 2015 with a brand new single “Unknown Song” featuring Paulina Eisenberg. And while the season has passed, this song very much feels like a Christmas present.

The German duo released their debut studio album, Sadnecessary on October 2013 and the month that followed brought them critical acclaim with singles “Stolen Dance” and “Down By the River” leading the way. “Unknown Song” follows similar themes to their light hearted styles and emphasis on conducive rhythms present in songs like “Flashed Junk Mind” but with a lighter percussions making wave for the real hero, the leading harmonica to shine between verses.

It feels good so good to start the year this way. Enjoy!

Denver is growing at an exponential rate. Not just with the ever expansion in the field of tech and startups, or the amount of new restaurants and international cuisines that are calling this city their home, but more importantly its become a breeding ground for all things dance music. Granted, the Mile High City has had this very reputation for decades now, but it becomes even more apparent when the reply from electronic lovers when asked what they will be doing for New Years Eve, is in fact, “DECADENCE.”

Celebrating their 4th annual dance party (having expanding to two days last year and continuing to do so for 2014), Global Dance is turning it up to eleven, in cooperation with AEG and Live Nation to make the welcoming of 2015 the most promising. Think we are hyping this up too much? How does back to back sets from Paper Diamonds, Ecotek, Claude Vonstroke, W & W, Disclosure and Bassnectar among others sound? and in Decadence fashion that is just considered a tease as for the following day you can expect Felix Cartel, Grazmatik, Madeon, Flux Pavilion, Deorro and Big Gigantic to finish it all off.

Pure, sweet and devastating electronic destruction is always what to be expected when Global Dance is involved. The Music Ninja will be there for both days at the Colorado Convention Center and you can follow us through live updates on twitter #decadenceninjas. Without further ado, here is our 2014 end of the year Decadence Preview Playlist.

Crooked Colours – Keep Your Mouth For Lying (cln Remix)

Crooked Colours
Keep Your Mouth For Lying (cln Remix)

The science of physics and chemistry teaches that the liberation of energy comes in both thermal and nuclear forms, and perhaps many others had I paid more attention in class. Yet, nothing is more equipped at transforming the little bit of kinetic energy left after along ass day than the exothermic properties of listening to music. The already exquisitely relaxing track “Keep Your Mouth For Lying” by Australian electronic trio Crooked Colours has now been rebranded as a bedroom lullaby by Callan Alexander, better known as, cln.

Not to take away from the efforts of cln, who in this project is blessed to work with the controlled and emotionally rooted vocals of frontman Philip Slabber, but it is Slabber’s ability to induce empathy that gives the track such resonance. Between welcome vocal loops and stripped instrumentals, the Aussie producer captures a side to the track, that if we take out its inherent scientific factor, can only be described as heavenly.

“Keep Your Mouth For Lying” is taken from the ‘In Your Bones’ EP available through iTunes.

Nate Eiesland – Drifting [TMN Premiere]

Nate Eiesland

There are just a handful of things more powerful than flourishing love, and the fading of itself is one of the few that can rival it. Nate Eiesland‘s “Drifting” quickly captivates both the ears and the very hearts connected to it with its instrumental foundation of guitars pickings, elongated piano chords and lyricism that echos something that was once beautiful but is no more. A tale of longing, this track represents the second offering from The Red Album, a collaboration between Nate Eiesland (ON AN ON), Nygel Asselin (producer of Half Moon Run) and Toronto songstress, STACEY.

There are tracks that get you through your work day, others get you through the weekend, “Drifting” is not intended to get you anywhere. On the contrary, it is meant to simply keep you in the moment where the heart feels most comfortable.

Red Brick Songs is offering a collection of euphonious experiences brought together by fifteen songwriters form all over the North America under one musical retreat. We posted its first installment “Tunnels” a few weeks back so please check it out if you haven’t already.
