Talk about a heavenly match. LA-based production duo Two Fresh just teamed up with Towkio and Joey Purp of SaveMoney crew for this fresh new hit “Getting Throwed”. It’s one of those tracks that’ll pump you up a few notches without getting overly excited. The totally smooth beat fuels the chill vibe that goes with the slurry verses, making this a perfect company for cruising in your car or a late night work grind. The keys fill in for the fresh melodies to add onto the downtempo approach of the track.

Released via Next Wave, “Getting Throwed” is added to the label’s diverse caliber. Make sure to grab this as a free download if you feel this tune!

[Dance] ASTR – Activate Me (Darkchild Mix)

ASTR - Activate Me (Darkchild Mix)
Activate Me (Darkchild Mix)

It’s been a hot minute since ASTR‘s last release. After gaining much popularity over their track “Operate” and their cover of Drake‘s “Hold On, We’re Going Home”, the NY-based duo explores a new sound heavily influenced by disco music. With the help of Rodney Jenkins a.k.a Darkchild with the mixing of the track, ASTR creates yet another masterpiece. The drums are cleverly crafted and versatile, further bringing out the suspense of the tune. Zoe’s vocals perfectly accentuate the catchy melodies in what seems to be another popular hit single.

ASTR once again shows high-quality in their music. There’s not a track they came out with that we do not favor. With an everchanging sound, sky is the limit for the duo.

Schul​Kid – Slow Dancing feat. Valair [TMN PREMIERE]

SchulKid Slow Dancing Artwork
Slow Dancing feat. Valair

One of the many blessings of this profession is being continually reintroduced to artists we love. While we’d love to keep tabs on every single musician that comes across our path, it’s simply not possible due to the sheer volume we’re introduced to. Today though, we’re certainly excited to once again cross paths with the elusive London producer SchulKid and Belgian vocalist Valair.

You may remember our premiere of their collaboration back in December of last year. What we came to know and love with “Wildest Promise” has come front and center with “Slow Dancing,” as we’re once again welcomed to this unique pairing.

SchulKid provides a luscious, layered backdrop for Valair in this tune. With cinematic sections of strings in the intro, upbeat drum racks, a club-friendly lead melody and bassline throughout, the vocals have the perfect accompaniment to allow them to shine. As an added bonus, they carry a perfect message for bringing the crowd’s need to dance to the forefront of their minds.

[TMN Exclusive Interview] Maribou State Talk their Musical Evolution and the Making of ‘Portraits’

Maribou State

UK production duo Maribou State have had a fascinating musical journey starting as a high school band who evolved into accomplished DJs and, more recently, coming full circle with their newly revealed fully live setup. Building on countless influences along the way, they have undoubtedly established a lane all their own as they prepare for the release of their debut album. It’s no accident that Maribou State have hit their stride lately–they’ve, quite literally, been building and fine-tuning for years. Recorded and engineered in a home studio that they assembled themselves, their output thus far, “Wallflower” being the most recent, balances electronic and live instrumentation blurring lines between dance and easy, trippy listening.

We had a chance to chat with Chris Davids and Liam Ivory, the long-time collaborators behind Maribou State, over the phone while they were on tour in Berlin and they went in-depth about their roots and the making of their upcoming debut, Portraits. Read it in their own words below. Portraits drops on June 2nd and can be pre-ordered here. You can also keep track of their upcoming tour dates at their website.

TMN: You guys have been on tour for a while now. How’s it going? 

Chris: Yeah, on and off. We’ve always kept the dates pretty regular. Good thing about DJing is you can go there on the weekends and play a set then come back and get in the studio. Now that the live band’s coming together and touring, it’s going to be more of a thing where we actually have to block out time. We’ve always played gigs most weekends since doing this. 

TMN: Have you unveiled the full live set in front of a crowd yet? 

Chris: We’ve only actually had two shows as a live act at the minute. One was in London and one was in Holland and we had that BBC performance. When we come back from Berlin in a few weeks, we’ve got some festival dates across Europe up until September. Then hopefully we should have a full tour come November.

TMN: So, backing up a bit, how did you first get into music? You both grow up outside of London, right?

Liam:  Yeah, we grew up in a place called Hartforshire which is about 25 minutes north of London. It’s close enough for us to get into the city but it’s really rural and excluded. I got into music, on the production side of things, when I was 16 or 17. I took music as a GSCE at school and one of the modules was to produce a piece of music. It kind of stemmed from there and I ended up doing it in college and further. 

TMN: And you both also played in bands prior to getting into production? 

Chris: Yeah, we both played in separate bands when we were like 15 in school. We eventually joined the same band that was originally full on guitar, bass and drums—there was no electronics involved in it. By the time I joined, we started using laptops and keyboards. From that up until what we’re doing now, we’ve stayed working with the same band. We moved in together and then carried on with that. We kept condensing it until it was just a laptop.

Liam: Now the band’s back!  Continue reading
