[Filthy] Candyland – Bring The Rain EP

Over the last week or so Candyland uploaded their entire Bring The Rain EP and it’s nothing short of amazing. This incredible debut EP will get released tomorrow on Spinnin’ Records.

The first track we are featuring is “Beneath Myself” and it has Ethan Davis on vocals. The progression in this one is flawless, utilizing a catchy melody during the intro. Then dropping into mind blowing Drumstep section that hits at all the right times. Next is “Castle Of Affair”, which is arguably the best song the EP, but we will leave that up to you. Peter Dawson is on vocals, and mixed with the euphoric Dub in this song, it is sure to leave you satisfied. The self titled track “Bring The Rain” has sexy vocals from Lexi Forche and some absolutely insane Electro. Just when you think this can’t get any better, they have a massive Moombah tune with Big Chocolate. The last two tracks, “Get Wild” and “All You You Gotta Do” are just incredible as the rest, so just sit back and enjoy this incredible EP. Also be ready for a Bring The Rain Remix EP some time in the future, lots of big things to come for Candyland in 2013. Cheers.

[TMN Resident Artist] Figure + Stem Download

If you could ask an artist for something from them, anything from them, what would you ask for? An hour on stage with them? A party bus afterward with them? A lock of their hair? (yeah that gets a little creepy). Or, would you ask for a little insight into their music? Well Figure came to us with an idea for his time here as our resident artist. What if he were to share some of his personal stems from two of his pulse dropping songs? That sounded like an amazing idea to us.

From his Monsters Volume 3, Figure has given us the stems to his electrifying “Michael Myers is Dead” and his body tingling “No Turning Back”.

So here they are for all you musicians who have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to remix one of the top dubstep artists of the industry.

Download

Download: “Michael Myers is Dead” (STEMS) [WAV File] (Right click + “save as” to d/l)
Download: “No Turning Back” (STEMS) [Self Hosted Zip]

Let us hear what you come up with! please send your remix to us at submit@themusicninja.com

Rules

There are a few rules that come along with these gems though and we ask here at TMN, and to respect Figure as the great artist he is too, that you please use these stem for REMIXES ONLY.

Please make sure that the remix is credited fully in the title of the song know that any remix made from these stems are not allowed for official sale but are to be used for promo only:

Figure – Michael Myers Is Dead (“ARTIST NAME” REMIX)
Figure – No Turning Back (‘ARTIST NAME’ REMIX)

FIGURE retains all-rights to the sounds and music within the stems, none of his music may be used to create compositions.

Enjoy everyone, en-fuckin-joy.

[Interview] NEXUS: An In-depth Talk With a Rising Producer

Nexus
Ginger Kids
Nexus
Radiant
Nexus & TYR
Connected (Original Mix)
Nexus
Supernova

As with the very definition of his name, Nexus, the young producer from Florida, is able to creates new musical experiences influenced by different ideas, different genres, all connected to become one coherent and organic sound that brings new forms of melody and aggression into dubstep. Only being 19 years of age, Nexus has worked the scene in Miami dj’ing anything from Deep House to Hip/Hop and with moving to Orlando to finish college, he is now more determined then ever to focus on his real goal: producing quality music. After grabbing our full attention with the release of his original track “Ginger Kids”, we just had to know more about the prolific and eccentric up and coming.

TMN: Congratulations on so many amazing tracks you have been putting out. Let’s start by learning more about your influences and how you got into producing electronic music, primarily dubstep?

When I was about fifteen/sixteen years old my friend Mathew Postrel was using this program called Ableton. I was into djing and mixing and I enjoyed djing a lot but I wanted to be more than just a DJ. So my friend was producing music and he showed me around Ableton and from that point on, I got myself a copy and started working with it.
It was interesting because I didn’t have a different type of style of music, he was more into Aphex twin, which is also one of my influences, and so I was really into that style when I started producing. Aphex Twin was the reasons he was making music. He made a lot of future garage and experimental music and I started making a bit of that, in a way. I have always enjoyed playing the piano, I am very into melodies and more of the pop style/universal language of music.

TMN: So were you classically trained as a young kid?

No no! Not at all, but I new music theory and I knew how to play the piano. I have been doing that for a while now.

That is why even when I make more traditional dubstep tracks, I really pull in all the influences of different styles of music out there. That song Ginger Kids I made wasn’t even on normal dubstep tempo, it was actually on 160 bpms

We feel like a lot of producers have gone into this brostep, extra extravagant movement and yet you still have that melodic foundation, which we find really refreshing.
