J. F. July – Found (Model 86 Remix) [TMN PREMIERE]

Found (Model 86 Remix)

J. F. July‘s debut single “Found” just got remixed by Model 86, and it is some of the most tasteful electronic music we’ve heard in a while. In between July’s smooth vocals and the mellowness of the original track, fellow UK producer Model 86 manages to squeeze in his distinctive production style and turn it up a couple notches.

The wavy arpeggio-driven style is reminiscent of the Flume sound, and the incorporation with crafty samples just makes it twice as catchy. For a producer who is no stranger to experimenting with new sounds, Model 86 is knocking this one out of the ball park. This genre-bending remix will definitely make some waves in the electronic music community, especially in the UK scene.

If you’re feeling this fresh tune as much as we do, make sure to give these guys a follow. You don’t want to miss out on this dream UK connection.

Dimond Saints
IDGAF Feat. Yaarrohs

In the near future, Dimond Saints will be releasing their album Prism In The Dark. Although anybody should be pumped that they are releasing an album, the Oakland duo decided to release a single ahead of time to get people jazzed. “IDGAF” is that single, and it will have you at the edge of your seat, 100% ready for Prism In The Dark.

“IDGAF” is a delectable sonic treat. Los Angeles vocalist Yaarrohs provides her voice to the mix. It’s as seductive as it is ghostly. Her voice is laden within a backdrop of bone-chilling soundscapes, and soulful percussive structures. All together the pieces make up a single that has a strong chance at making some noise on the radio. Only catch is the name, but who gives a… well, you know. Dimond Saints have always been producers who aren’t afraid to do something different, or push boundaries, but they’ve outdone even themselves with this one. Stream “IDGAF” today and prepare yourself for the album to come!

[Electronic] Mat Zo – MAD EP

mat-zo

As I sit down to write up the MAD EP by Mat Zo, I’m at a loss for words. Not even in just describing the project, but just in general. The MAD EP is that good; it’s going to mess with your brain and you’re not going to be able to think straight.

The whole project, including the artwork, is damn near perfect. The three track EP was released by Mat’s label Mad Zoo in conjunction with his tour announcement. From the start of the first track, “Trogoldyte,” Mat puts the listener in a trance with a majestic introduction that sounds as though it was created by Elfman for the beginning of a Burton flick. From there it moves into a celestial, bass-heavy production. With “Take It Back” Mat gets down and dirty with a hip-hop tinged original featuring Foreign Beggars. Although he has come so far, you get to hear some of his drum & bass influences from his early days as a producer. The same can be said for “MAD” who’s jungle sound will get any party pumping. It really will make you go mad.

The artwork embodies the sounds of the EP to a T. We’ve been bumping this since it was released two weeks ago. If it’s somehow slipped under your radar, give it a listen. If you’ve already heard it, you know you wanna play it again. MAD is currently available on digital stores. If you would like to see Mat during his tour, check out his dates below!

More than 100,000 homes have been destroyed, 13 are dead, and hundreds of thousands are impacted across 12 parishes in the region. Within days of flood waters rising, various artists, festival organizers, and music industry executives joined forces to organize music and concert experiences to raise awareness and deliver relief to this urgent cause.

[Electronic] Youngman Goon – Call & Response

Youngman Goon
Call & Response

If you call yourself a reader of The Music Ninja, then you’re already familiar with our very own Clayton Warwick. Interestingly enough, despite working in the Dojo and heading up his company Cadence & Cause, Clayton has enough time for some fun. This is the time where Youngman Goon was born in partnership with Beatport’s Jon Sakas, who took the production lead on the project. After enough time jamming in the basement, they decided to launch their endeavor with “Call & Response.”

Youngman Goon certainly put their best foot forward with “Call & Response.” From the get go with the guitar and claps, you know you’re in for a real treat. Slow, groovy, and infectious, this original has me wanting to hear more. A passion project, yes; but that doesn’t mean it won’t become something more than expected. Especially if they keep releasing gems like this.

If you’re looking for a song with incredible replay value, then you’ve found it. “Call & Response” is currently available for stream exclusively through Soundcloud, so you surely will be hitting replay. What makes this one even better, whether purposeful or not, is that the song’s length is 4:20. It may just be the Colorado in them, or maybe something else. Whatever it may be, what is for sure is you need to keep your ears peeled for more Youngman Goon. Even better, go bother Jon and Clayton for more!

Show You (ft. Alisa Nappa)

Following the success of Falls Like Rain EP, French producer Fytch is back at it with a fresh new track off his upcoming Show Me EP. “Show You” once again features the lovely vocals by Alisa Nappa. Contrasting to their previous collaboration “Over Your Head”, the EP title track has toned down the bass a few notches and embodies a downtempo vibe. Alisa’s fluid vocals takes the track on a smooth sail, which will leave you vibin’ from beginning to end.

Fytch has proven once again just how versatile yet unique his music is. His recent work has helped set the bar high for bass music, and we cannot wait ’til the full EP comes out this Friday.
