[Remix on Repeat] John Newman – Love Me Again (TYR Remix)

John Newman
Love Me Again (TYR Remix)

John Newman has one sexy voice, period.

So to make a remix of his, and to do it well, an artist must keep all that is sexy in his vocals and our Rado boy TYR did just that with his remix of ‘Love Me Again’. The 19-year-old producer took the sultry voice of Newman and added a splash of electronic TYR sound, full of quick melodies, piano chords and intense vocal alterations. Another powerful remix by TYR to listen to again and again and again.

Minnesota – Collective Identity Tour VIP Ticket Giveaway [TMN EXCLUSIVE]

Music Ninja Promo
Minnesota + G Jones

Minnesota’s smooth melodic style captured our attention quite some time ago, and has continued to impress us with each and every release. Meticulously crafted, his sound is beautiful and often hip hop inspired, layering fast paced hi hats over rolling bass lines. With carefully extracted samples and clean natural atmospheric elements, he creates a rich and luscious soundscape that’s both relaxing and invigorating.

Given our long time affinity for this Santa Cruz producer/DJ, we were of course elated to give our readers the chance to win two VIP/Meet and Greet tickets to one of his shows. Our elation grew as the details emerged that we’d be doing this for his entire tour. That’s right, for every single one of Minnesota’s tour dates from October 9th and December 22nd (not including festival dates) we’re hooking up VIP tickets.

…but wait! There’s more!

We’re not handing out just one set of VIP tickets. We’re giving out two sets of VIP tickets per show!

Pretty insane, right? We thought so to. Well, we won’t keep you any longer. We know your unbridled excitement has you already searching this post up and down looking for how to enter. Well, keep your pants on. We’re about to give you that information.

[Remix EP] MORTEN – Look Closer


Not too long ago, we featured the beautiful vocal progressive house gem from Copenhagen born DJ/Producer, Morten, via his recap from WMC week in Miami. The video was the perfect backdrop for this gorgeously produced tune, making all who were at that legendary week want to book their tickets for 2014.

After a years of blogging, we’ve come to realize this. When you have a progressive house gem with stunning vocals, you will have remixes. Whether their official or not, you know they’re coming down the pike. And today, we have a few of our favorites. These are the official remixes, put out on Ash Pournari’s PRMD label. First up is a TMN favorite, Candyland, who always infuse a unique sound into whatever they do. The Santa Barbara DJ duo, who have been getting all sorts of accolades as of late, turned this uplifting house tune into a filthy dubstap track, layering in razory synths and heavy bass.

Our other favorite out of the lot was Danny Verde, who has a staggering list of official remixes under his belt. In his take on “Look Closer” we’re served up a nice electro house version that still allows the original vocals to shine though, yet provides us with a little more dancy aggression.

The EP is officially out on Beatport as of yesterday.

[Metal Step] Slayer – Raining Blood (Aylen Remix)

Raining Blood (Aylen Remix)

Gah! My inner 18 year old self is freaking out right now. “Raining Blood,” is inevitably one of the greatest metal songs of all time, created by one of the greatest metal bands of all time. Trying to tackle an electronica based remix of this tune is no easy feat. Thank god it’s Aylen taking it on.

Razor sharp synths carefully layered across break beats, accentuated by masterfully crafted samples make this remix one for the record books. Maybe I’m biased considering my affinity for metal. Maybe I’m biased considering my affinity for Aylen. Regardless of which, there’s no denying this is one bad ass remix.
