Dirty South- With You ft. FMLYBND
As we enter the second day of our Blogathon, it has become apparent that the ninjas here at TMN have been doing a fantastic job at finding you the best tunes on the internet. Having only slept a total of 9 hours in 2 days, I, personally, have been digging and digging to find some presentable tunes. With my morning coffee poured and my mind a little bit sharper, it’s time to share with you the latest from Los Angeles producer, Dirty South and his STUNNING new track, “With You feat. FMLYBND”. Now, before we dive into this one, we just have to let you ninjas know that this song unexpectedly sucked us into a tornado full of emotion. It’s so refreshing to hear two artists from different genres come together and produce such soothing frequencies to create both a lyrically moving and internally pleasing end result.
dreaming with my eyes open,
I breathe in – feel the light,
soak in with you
It’s evident that Dirty South is stepping into new territories with his latest productions and “With You” is auditory proof that we have reached that important landmark in dance music where we aren’t hearing “bangers” as much, but instead are being blasted with intrinsically satisfying works of art. This is easily the best song we could think of to get you up and going for the day, so press play and soak into these delectable sound waves for the remainder of the day.
Pre-order Dirty South’s new album, With You, which is set to release later this year.
Woah, ninjas. As we continue to dig a little bit deeper into the sea of Soundcloud, we came across a track we put off for the past 2 weeks. Boy are we not doing our job in getting you the latest and greatest tunes to stay ahead of the game. As we dust the cob webs off these wonderful tunes, we have one track from up and coming artist, Karen Harding, that has us stopped dead in our tracks. Harding’s one and only song on her Soundcloud, “Say Something”, is undeniably the most under-rated song to have show up on our radar. With the help of 19-year-old singer, songwriter, and producer, MNEK, Karent Harding steers this impeccable debut straight through the roof. We are highly impressed by both MNEK’s flawless craftsmanship along with Karen’s stunning voice – the sky is the limit for both of these talented artists and we can’t wait to see what’s next in line for them.
Love Blind (Original '4AM' Mix)
Hate it or love it, there’s no denying that deep house is here to stay, at least for the time being. The best we as bloggers can do is sift through the noise to find quality sounds for our wonderful readers. Matt Zanardo is an up-and-comer from the Great White North that has started to establish himself as a big room producer. Luckily for us, he is a jack of trades and decided to switch things up on us this round with “Love Blind”, a deep cut that, as he describes in the title, is perfect for all those 4AM activities whether it be driving, drinking, dancing, or spending some quality time with that special someone. Come find me later tonight after I field test this bad boy out.
The entire Flow-Fi fam consists of a roster filled with incredible talent. Here we have a Miguel bootleg by Manchester producer EphRem. The original is a babymaking masterpiece, yet EphRem cleverly turned it into a soulful electronic mix. The speed of the melody is increased and the pitch is raised, creating these chipmunk-like vocals that flow really well with the overall chillwave synths in the background.
It’s quite amusing how easy this seems, yet how difficult it actually is to alter little things of an original song to create a bootleg. EphRem surely does this Miguel song justice in just three minutes. Go give it a listen and find yourself into the welcoming arms of the Flow-Fi fam.
Orphan's Son (Ekali Remix)
What else is there to be said about Ekali? The dude has quickly become not just a TMN favorite, but a force to be reckoned with in the bass music scene. With only eight tracks under his belt, he’s already racked up nearly 10,000 Soundcloud followers and that number will only continue to grow as industry tastemakers and leading producers keep taking notice. His latest effort is as dark and sinister as it is gorgeous. Eli Muro makes his Ninja debut as Ekali turns “Orphan’s Son” into a broody banger that I think anyone with a pulse can and will enjoy.
Full Crate x Mar
Man X Woman (JAWZ Version)
As we begin to sift through the last few weeks of music, we came across a Full Crate & Mar’s remix of “Man x Woman” from Aussie producer, JAWZ; to say this song is like floating in the clouds is an understatement. Right from the start we are introduced with a harmonious harp melody that builds into a breakdown full of chill, ambient R&B and trap elements that collectively bring forth a new refreshing sound to help sooth the soul. JAWZ is starting to take those future Aussie elements and weave them together to form these eclectic masterpieces that speak to every ear that listens in full. As always, grab your free download and get your feel on the JAWZ way.
The Friday feels are certainly alive and real with this one. Returning with his first single in over a month, Dolphin Tears has decided to bless us with yet another eccentric, R&B-infused jersey club anthem. This time drawing inspiration from T-Pain‘s “Buy U A Drank,” delivers quite the banger, packed with plenty of synths, pulsating percussion, video game samples, bed squeaks and of course his signature dolphin calls. We won’t judge you if you suddenly feel an uncontrollable urge to get up out of your seat and shake your tailfeather (is that a dated term now?), because that’s exactly what we did. Do you know how hard it is to type while dancing? Why not press play on this gem and try it out for yourself?
