[House] Just Kiddin – Thinking About It

Just Kiddin
Thinking About It (Extended Mix)

Sometimes a tune just has that innate ability to lift you right out of a funk and into a place of absolute enjoyment. Such was the case this morning when “Thinking About It” by Just Kiddin rolled across our desks and into our house monitors at the TMN office today. Though we’d already heard this one multiple times via The Magician’s 41st Magic Tape, we were all finally gifted with its official unveiling over the weekend and couldn’t have been happier. Just Kiddin’s employed production techniques are impressive to say the least with an immediate tinny clap, and loopy pad work setting the stage for one of this writer’s favorite dance vocals this entire year. With such an infectious proper house melody, along with some of the most effective and accessible vocal reverberations we’ve heard utilized in some time, as well as support from some of TMN’s favorite producers including Annie Mac, The Magician, Moon Boots, Bondax, Blonde and more, “Thinking About It” is poised to become this Summer’s house anthem above all else. “Thinking About It” is available through FFRR/Eton Messy Records on Beatport for our DJ friends and those who must have this one in their music libraries at all times, but in the mean time, stream above.

[Indie Electronic] BASECAMP – Shudder


Since their single hit “Emmanuel“, Nashville trio BASECAMP has once again proven that genres don’t define how artists make their music. It was difficult to categorize this track because of all the different elements put into it. From the house beat and repetitive wave sounds in the background, to the chillwave-like synth and a voice similar to John Legend’s, “Shudder” stands its place as one of the most distinctively sounding songs by BASECAMP. The soulful vocals magically capture the R&B melody, and together with the joyful yet complex beat, we have a track so tranquil and laid back that you’ll never get tired of listening to. The downtempo breakdown towards the end catches your attention with its intentionally clouded bass and background noises, but at the same time remains its glitchy beat with abrupt pauses.

There are so many good things we can say about this track. We’ll just let you be the judge of it. With a new EP coming Fall 2014, BASECAMP is definitely one to watch for all you music lovers.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #95

chill dojo

Whatever the events of your weekend, be it wild or chilled, Dojo number 95 has more than enough material to make sure the wind-down continues well into the working week. Now Joe Garston is a name that you wouldn’t necessarily think of in kicking off a chill playlist, being widely known for his energetic brand of bouncy electro-house. But as many artists have shown us in previous editions, there’s every possibility that elements of your style can be given a mellow feel. Though there’s no thumping bassline present at all in ‘Someday’, the pure happiness embodied in this track is undoubtedly the work of the UK producer. The nostalgic tone is a surreal experience, and will invoke all those memories you hold close to your heart. On the opposite end of the spectrum, New Zealand beatsmith Samuel Truth gives us a soundtrack to a frozen land of fantasy. Well NZ is the land of fantasy after all, and the wintery feel coupled with the palpable emotion is a combo that makes ‘The Cold’ all too real. If that’s way too frosty for your liking, we’ve always got some new Snakehips to breathe the feeling of summer back into your ears. Their latest single ‘After I Met U’ is another jam for your festival season oozing in that signature groove that is so damn addictive, showing just why they consistently provide hit after hit. Another name who delivers one funky tune after the next is none other than Dojo-favorite JNL. The feisty Canadian has outdone himself once again with ‘By Yourself’, bringing a vibe that echoes some serious Daft Punk influences, and will induce some spontaneous dance-floor behavior.

German label Jakarta Records recently released a free compilation of unreleased music from a number of familiar names, and among them was an absolute gem from MURAMASA. Amongst the wealth of smooth beats contained in Summer In Jakarta, ‘Miss You’ immediately stuck out with its lush melody and emotive vocals that reach straight for the heartstrings without any sign of letting go. This will be a go-to song in your library for when you need it most. Hold on tight, because we’re gonna go really deep with this last one. KAASI is notorious for concocting a dangerously deep tune, and you know you’re in for something special when he declares it’s his best yet. We would very much agree with that, because this one flows endlessly into a state of sheer serenity.

Monday sorrows are nothing in the face of this seriously chill tunage. Peace out.

[Electro] Lil Silva – Don’t You Love (Feat. BANKS)

Lil Silva - Don't You Love (feat. BANKS)
Lil Silva
Don't You Love (Feat. BANKS)

Do you love BANKS as much as we do? Well her recent collaboration with British producer and DJ Lil Silva will deifnitely satisfy all of Jillian’s fans. This new track by Lil Silva titled “Don’t You Love” has an interesting yet lengthy buildup. From the get go, Lil Silva is incorporating his funky elements into the beat. There are the echoing male vocals in the beginning, something resembling BANKS’ style, most notable in “Brain” produced by Shlomo.  Then as the funky bass comes in, the anticipation builds up. The vocals from BANKS don’t come in until over half way to the track, but the result is a drop that gets you vibin’ and headbobbing all over the place. BANKS’ solo towards the end of the tune shows every bit of her goddess-like sassiness. Everything comes together so well with the overdue beat drop that it was worth all the hype and anticipation.

With his new project “Maple EP” coming out August 4, Lil Silva is definitely looking to diversify his fan base by recruiting some of BANKS’. With the addition of this track, we are very excited to how BANKS is going to change the game with the release of her new album.

There is absolutely nothing more fun than a groovy Nu-Disco tune to get you through the final hours of your monotonous day job. The weekend called and said it’s about that time we kick things off early, so why not do it with a new tune from TJH87? The Finnish duo teamed up with Gamble & Burke for their latest original, “Good Life”, to which my grandma even had something good to say about this funky disco jam.

This tune is jam packed with funk guitars, massive synths, and a bass to take you back to the OG Daft Punk days. We over here at TMN have had this one on repeat, so press play and let that figurative disco ball light up your cubicle while you get ready for a big weekend ahead. With HARD Summer mode in full gear, we promise that TJH87 will get you in the right mood to rage your butt’s off in the coming days. Stay golden, ninjas, and party hard.
