Inky Jack – Freedom [TMN PREMIERE]

Inky Jack
Freedom

As we prep ourselves for the craziness that is Coachella, we’re lost in a sea of interview questions, meeting coordination, and planning out both our poolside and after hours jams. Thankfully we have a new track to throw into the mix that seamlessly blends into either of those carefully selected playlists.

Culminating in a swirling blend of rock, reggae, electronica and punk influences, Brooklyn based Inky Jack has concocted a peculiar and overwhelmingly addictive sound with their song, “Freedom.” Blurring the lines between genres effortlessly, this tune carries a strong message through its lyrics. Coming via lead singer Kwame, these words are displayed through a truly one-of-a-kind vocal tone that is both refined and a little rough around the edges. He’s able to hit high notes in a soulful manner, calling on associations of CeeLo and Tunde Adebimpe from TV On the Radio.

Dipesh Sinha and Kwame Bulter (aka Inky Jack) have set quite the trajectory early on in their career. Their sound casts a wide net by the immense amount of genres it so fluently flirts with.

Make sure to keep an eye out for their EP, Infrared, which will be out later this year. Beyond that, don’t be surprised when you see this name on some major festivals next year. That time is drawing near for this stellar duo.

ANiMAL – MUSIC – Monsters [TMN PREMIERE]

ANiMAL-MUSiC
Monsters

You can’t judge a book by its cover, and you can’t judge a track by its title. While the title for this seemingly dark drum and bass tune would lead you towards a macabre, ominous soundscape, you’d be wrong in that assumption. You’ve come looking for monsters and you’ll leave wanting to overcome them.

What exactly does that mean, you ask? Press play and expect only positive, uplifting vibes from this melodic track. Drawing on comparisons of Rudimental, these vibes carry effortlessly over the liquid style, rolling bassline and rapid snare work.

We have London based electronic four piece ANiMAL – MUSIC to thank for this regenerative tune, which is out today via your favorite music blog. “Monsters” features vocals from the group’s member Tom and carries a message that will leave you nodding and saying, “hell yeah.” Couple it with some soaring synths and light piano keys, and we can’t help but find ourselves tapping our feet and sporting a big, toothy grin.

[TMN EXCLUSIVE] Daft Punk + Martin Garrix – Unreleased Track

Martin Garrix and Daft Punk
Unreleased Track

Holy shit, ninjas! We were able to get our hands on a sneak preview of a blockbuster collaboration between Martin Garrix and Daft Punk. The word on the street is, you’ll be able to catch this song at Coachella, which has huge ties to Daft Punk. Maybe we’ll see those famous helmets come up on stage with Martin for this monster of a track. Who knows?

All we can say is, this track is a dance floor slaying beast. The bassline is huge, which will provide ample material for all of the dancing festival folks. While the melody is truly spectacular, the drop is what really sold us on this tune. We’re not quite sure what the release date is, but we can guarantee that it will be one of the most remixed songs for the following months.

What are you waiting for? Press play and get ready to hear the anthem for 2014.

UPDATE: If you haven’t already figured this out yet, this was obviously an April Fool’s Day prank. Neither Martin Garrix nor Daft Punk had anything to do with this song. However, we’d like to offer up a sincere thank you to Jontron for helping us pull together a convincing troll. :)

[Amazing] Asgeir – Dreaming

Dreaming

Growing up in the late 80′s and 90′s, I always wondered what it would be like to ride Falcor from the Never Ending Story. Something about riding a half dragon, half dog, way up above the rest of the world was a fantasy I often indulged in. Thanks to Asgier, I now fully know what that seemingly impossible feat would feel like.

All kidding aside, there’s something in the water up in Iceland. They have such a knack for blending gorgeous vocal tones with impeccable harmonies and meticulous piano work. Staying in the same vein as one of our long-time favorites, Sigur Ros, Asgier has created a booming, cinematic song that’s worthy of any classic epic tale. If they make a movie about the Iliad, this song should be in the soundtrack.

This one is extremely easy to wander off to, so we suggest a solid pair of headphones and a good cocktail to accompany it.
