When the time for mega-producer(s) Major Lazer comes close for a new project, he usually drops some extra heat to keep his already high buzz consistent. Yesterday he took to the interwebs to grace fans for a new track “Watch out for this(Bumaye)”. Staying true to Lazer fashion, this cross between EDM and Dancehall pays off for an infectious, upbeat dance number. The dope duo brings in some collaborative help from Busy Signal, The Flexican, and FS Green to make a great listen for his upcoming LP Free the Universe and a free track if fans pre-order the album before it drops April 2nd.

Explosions (Gemini Remix)
There is definitely no shortage to a remix to an Ellie Goulding song. A string of remixes to multiple tracks off her debut album Halcyon have been floating around the clubs and interwebs for the past year. Although some are more necessary then others, each Dj/producer has added their own unique spin to Goulding’s unique voice. Taking on the “Explosions” single is newcomer Gemini with a dub-step re-vamp.
Although dubstep has been on a steady decline, Gemini takes a refreshing and pulsating spin to Goulding’s vocals. Bits of the original track can be heard throughout the 140 BPM range beat and airy melody, but quickly fades with the heart-pounding breakdowns and oscillating vibes.

After about a 6 month hiatus Justin aka Crywolf is back with a mesmerizing Original tune. Crywolf was formally “Cry Wolf” and featured 2 guys, it’s now a one man show, but still delivering some next level tuneage. Collabing with Ianborg on this track titled “Oceans”, it also features Justin with some dreamy and empowering vocals. The intro starts off slow with some euphoric synth work mixed with heavy bass and an incredible melody. Then dropping into some hot and heavy wobbles with a sound design resembling Adventure Club or Seven Lions. Cheers.
Also be sure to stay tuned for Crywolf’s upcoming EP titled, Ghosts, that will drop in April on Le Castle Vania‘s Record Label, Always Never. I had the pleasure of listening to two of the tracks on the EP, and they were both nothing short of amazing. Expect big things to come in 2013 from Crywolf!

Leave it to PatrickReza to once again pick the perfect songs to remix. We see many producers squander their opportunities trying convert a subtle and delicate track into the next club banger. And this is truly where PatrickReza excels, managing the original structure and sensibility of its predecessor but elevating the track with just enough layers of rapturous wobbles and melodies. His latest victim, the gorgeous single ‘Belispeak’ off the debut album of Canadian electronica duo Purity Ring, comes engorged with a bouncy structure that is bound to make any indie lover groove. Even if this perhaps is a departure from Reza’s past releases containing much darker themes, the new remodel still offers gritty and deep baselines among brighter dancier elements. Download it for Free below.

Not too long ago we had the pleasure of talking with Carousel at their show in Denver. Amongst other things, we of course discussed our favorite song of theirs, “Stay Awake.” The electro-pop single off of their upcoming EP has quickly become a favorite here at TMN headquarters.
Chicago based producer DotEXE recently reached out to Carousel to put his own take on “Stay Awake.” Jackson’s dreamy vocals and the soft electronic undertones make a perfect backdrop for a dubstep remix, and that’s exactly what DotEXE has created. Elements of the original song shine though the build providing a melodic experience. But, DotEXE puts his signature style all over this remix with an absolutely devastating drop, and masterful vocal sampling.

What’s up, ninjas? It’s Friday which means it’s time for two things. First of all, it’s time for you to hear my selection of dance inducing tracks that I’ve carefully selected throughout the week. Upon pressing play, you should immediately grab a cocktail and take a drink. It’s Friday, and it’s time to let loose.
On a side note, if you’re a Coloradoan like me, you should come hang with TMN at Vinyl this Saturday. You can find all the deets here.
As usual, please #danceirresponsibly
