Krayysh – Talk to Me EP [TMN Premiere]

If you aren’t familiar with Krayysh, you’ve come to the right place. There are a lot of gems out there, but Krayysh may just be the finest. The Mad Zoo music maker has support from the don Mat Zo himself – so much so that Mat graced Krayysh with a remix on the newly released Talk To Me EP. We’ve got that EP right here for you in this premiere!

Talk To Me comes in at four originals deep along with Mat Zo’s remix of the title track to conclude the project. We’ve only been able to hear singles from Krayysh so far and as mind-blowing as they are, it’s nice to see him flex out on an extended release. He shows just where he can take his sound with a diverse array of tracks that can’t be pinned down to one genre. Krayysh has got his own thing going and it’s remarkable to hear. Top all that off with a Mat Zo remix and you’ve got a hell of an EP. Get your copy of it today.

Kaizen – Breathe [TMN Premiere]

Kaizen
Breathe

The weekend is finally here. What better way to get Friday going than to let the Florida producer Kaizen take you away with his new single. “Breathe” is a breath of fresh air, a highly melodic single released on Caption Records.

Kaizen builds a beautiful song that doesn’t follow traditional dance structure. “Breathe” from start to finish grows and changes like an organic form. First he births an emotional atmospheric introduction that slowly shifts into the more electronically specific phrase of the song. From there Kaizen continues to build the track until he drives forth to an unexpected territory. It’s a nice surprise – and we’re not going to say where it goes. Just know you’ll love it.

[Electronic] The Range & Jim-E Stack – With You (Yaeji Remix)

Brooklyn based genre-eschewing producer James Hinton, better known as The Range, has stormed through this year on the heels of 2016’s excellent long-player Potential. Hinton’s aural aesthetic has been one steeped in unique textures and reverberations, as he’s primarily built his vocal samples -especially on Potential– around obscure YouTube videos with no more than a few hundred plays at most. The Range’s fluid blend of hip-hop inspired drum foundations, and larger than life synth pulses have always been quite suited towards the remix realm, which is why we’re so excited about his impending Remixes EP out this Friday on Domino. Remixes will be a 4-track affair, with remixes of his Jim-E Stack collaboration “With You” and “New Lots” (from his recent 12” release), as well as one of our favorite singles from 2016 “Florida”.

Today, we’re rolling out 24 year-old South Korean born, New York based DJ, rapper, singer and producer Yaeji‘s intimate reworking of “With You”.  Yaeji’s uniquely subdued blend of house, pop, trap, and rap coalesce perfectly behind Hinton’s glossy stems, creating a softer, more heartfelt take on the original. Not to mention, Yaeji re-recorded all of the vocals using her own voice to lend an even more personal touch to her revision. With such an innate understanding of a multitude of sonics, it’s no wonder she’s been getting coined by some major outlets as ‘House Music’s Most Exciting New Voice’. Check out Yaeji’s remix of “With You” below, and be on the prowl for the rest of The Range’s Remixes EP to unfurl this Friday.

[R&B/Pop] AU8UST – Hold Me Down

AU8UST
Hold Me Down

You would never guess that AU8UST‘s single “Hold Me Down” was created in a DIY studio in a room at a Motel 6. This poppy R&B treat pays homage to AU8UST’s travels around the world before coming back to his birthplace in Los Angeles.

Not only has AU8UST traveled the world, but he travels through different sounds, bringing together genres with a fluidity that some artists just don’t have. “Hold Me Down” is evidence of his smooth nature, not only mixing pop and R&B, but bringing in heavy influences from electronic music. AU8UST is back in full swing and 2018 should be a magnificent year for this creative talent.

[Electronic] EMBRZ – Doubt House

EMBRZ
Doubt House

There’s no doubt that “Doubt House” by EMBRZ is a great song. Out on digital stores now, this original single sees the Irish producer progress to new heights with his sound.

We wouldn’t judge you for thinking this was going to be a house song, we thought the same thing, but EMBRZ brings us into his signature sound, something he’s been developing since he first released music a few years ago. Since then he’s been gaining quite some speed with incredible records just like “Doubt House.” EMBRZ takes another step in the right direction with his latest and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
