Barely Great – WEIRD000 [TMN Premiere]

Barely Great
WEIRD000 (The Music Ninja Premiere)

LA’s Barely Great is readying his upcoming EP, Imperfect, complete with five singles out this Friday. Today, Monday, we’ve got an exclusive peak at one of those five tracks thanks to this Music Ninja Premiere!

For all those eccentric bass lovers out there, we’ve got our ears on “WEIRD000.” The industrially influenced trap take has some of the most interesting sound design you’re going to find. The bass designs feel like they are dripping wet straight into your ear while the percussion pounds away in a hypnotic fashion. Expect much more of this excellence on the EP this Friday, but for now, enjoy “WEIRD000” on us.

“With this EP I’m trying to create something unique. I’m not trying to follow any trends of what I think works already. I want to create new sounds in patterns that make people feel new feelings. I want to be my own person.”
-Barely Great

[Electro Pop] DayFox – Lioness

DayFox
Lioness

The German creative DayFox has blessed us with some good ol’ happy music. The single “Lioness” dropped as a free download and has been marketed alongside DayFox’s catalog as royalty free music for other creatives like vloggers, streamers etc. Which is perfect, because “Lioness” has just the right sound for sync opportunities.

“Lioness” is a poppy electronic anthem that blends breakbeat percussion, heavenly vocal chops and calming keys together in a magnificently beautiful way. DayFox really honed in on making this sound iconic and accessible as possible. It’s not necessarily a groundbreaking tune in any regard, but it certainly is one of the strongest electro pop tracks we’ve heard this year. And now we’re looking forward to even more from Dayfox.

[Pop] KDL – 777 (feat. Ferras)

KDL
777 (feat. Ferras)

It’s not often you see producers from across the world coming together to form a duo, but that’s just how KDL came to be. The New Jersey meets Norway duo have hit our radar with their latest single “777” featuring Ferras.

“777” is an emotionally driven pop gem pairing together a bustling instrumental with a grooving vocal performance. It’s reminiscent of some works from The Weeknd, but it still retains an independence that makes the single memorable in its own right. KDL certainly have talent when it comes to writing pop records with influence from other genres and even time periods, so don’t be too surprised if you catch them working with some top tier mainstream talents in the future.

Apollo LTD are going to have a big summer. With a new album dropping today (Out of Body) and a tour alongside The New Respects going on right now until the end of the month, this Nashville indie pop duo is on the up and up. Their latest single “Misfits” is a summer soaked anthem that feels like a ray of sunshine. The song features Jordan Phillips’ and Adam Stark’s retro-smooth production, with electronic synths and falsetto vocals all coming together for a incredibly unforgettable hook. In the past their sound has been more pop leaning but this one is tons of fun thanks to it’s funky backbone.

[Future Bass] Manila Killa – All 2 U ft. Sara Skinner (Juuku flip)

all 2 u ft. sara skinner (juuku flip)

On some of his best work to date, Juuku steps it up a notch on his take of Manilla Killa’s “All 2 U” featuring Sara Skinner. The future bootleg features a glitched out hook that is both glamorous and sharp while still not being distracting or over layered. I would kill to hear this remix live on some huge speakers with a major sub woofer or even better yet a festival stage with fans all around losing themselves in the music. Juuku is gearing up for a big year and has a ton of new content on the way, including some original music (so stay tuned for that).

Update: he just released this new remix for Teflon Sega and Saint Jhn that also slaps, listen here.
