Skinny Love (Fareoh Remix)
No matter who you are or what you listen to, we have come to the conclusion that there is not a single soul who does not love Birdy’s rendition of “Skinny Love” (originally by Bon Iver). Whenever anyone puts their spin on this timeless track, we cannot help but grab our Webster dictionary and pour ourselves a glass of fine wine before we turn into music reviewers.
When it comes to remixing classics, we have to be selective about the remixes that surface our newsfeeds because with a song like “Skinny Love”, we only want to present the best of the best. It must be a lucky day for all of you because we just found something for all you ninjas to go ape shit over. New York producer and groove master, Fareoh, put one of the glitchiest electronic spins on “Skinny Love” and turned it into pure gold.
As soon as you press play, you’re instantly welcomed with a choppy acoustic melody along with Birdy’s sensational whispy voice that effortlessly progresses into a glitch-hop, electro house, funky fresh breakdown to bring you those much needed Summer vibes. If this were being played at a festival, you bet you’d be hearing this during a Gramatik set at Lightning in a Bottle because there is no way the masters of electronic funk could let this one fall off the radar. Fareoh definitely just made a name for himself and his music with this one and we expect to be hearing this at every festival until the end of time. Not only did he kill it as a remix, but he just made it a timeless track to give us those nostalgic groovy feels whenever we please.
Years and Years
Take Shelter Unplugged
British trio Years & Years recently came out with their new EP, and here we have an acoustic version of their lead single “Take Shelter”. With only the piano as the accompaniment, their lead singer Olly’s voice shines in this poignant little tune. They describe themselves as Electro Soul Pop, and when you take away the electro element of the song, Soul and Pop are exactly what these guys sound like acoustically. It’s simple, emotional, heartfelt, and most importantly, it calls for your attention. It’s almost like you’ve gone through a bad breakup and here you are reminiscing about the old times. Okay this might be going too far but you get the point.
Also, check out their original version of the song here. We are pretty excited to see what else these guys have to offer. With the release of this single, Years & Years are definitely on the right track to make it big in the UK, maybe even here in the States.
Unknown (feat. Vanessa Elisha) [Off upcoming VINYL/EP]
There’s very few artists we’d immediately drop everything at hand for, but you can be certain that XXYYXX and Vanessa Elisha are two of them. The 18 year old producer has been experimenting with quite an array of varying sounds over the last few months, but this latest effort finds him returning to some of his lo-fi roots as he links up with the Aussie native on “Unknown.” After one listen, it’s safe to say this collaboration left us breathless. After two listens, well, we’d rather not divulge what that did to us. Fusing together a unique mix of brooding, wavy production with Vanessa’s sultry vocals, the young Floridian creates a hypnotizing concoction that’ll definitely leave you begging for more.
Ever the man of mystery, the enigmatic producer has spared us very few details about the release, though he has dropped a couple of hints about what the future holds for him. While the title of this song is “Unknown,” we do know that it’ll be on an upcoming yet-to-be-named vinyl EP. Though some more information would be nice, we’ve learned to accept what we can get out of the talented musician.
You may not know the name, but you’ve definitely her voice before. Moon Holiday is Australia’s fastest rising starlet and her productions are starting to pick up steam in the land down under. She is most notably known for cowriting and singing on Flume’s smash hit “Insane,” however her solo endeavors are easily laudable as well. Her debut EP was sensational and now she brings us “Rid U”, the first single for her follow up project entitled “Second Life.” Over a dark beat perfect for late night vibing, Ward brings a haunting, almost ethereal performance that’s sure to get you hooked on the up-and-coming vocalist.

Magnolia (REVOKE Remix)
Do you ever stumble across those songs that leave you questioning what the hell you just listened to? Well we ninjas just had an existential crisis all thanks to REVOKE. The Southern California producer is notorious for turning things up regardless of where we’re at. Lunch with grandma? Turn up. At the doctor’s office? Turn up. In line at Subway? Turn up with extra avocado. The guy sure does know how to handle his music in the weirdest, most eclectic way and we couldn’t be more stoked to share what he has cooking up his sleeve today.
After a successful remix alongside the dynamic duo, Candyland, REVOKE decided to give us an entirely different side of himself with his latest remix of “Magnolia” by Wilsen. At first, we really had no idea what to classify this song as because it incorporates elements from the entire music spectrum (especially, bass) such as melodic trap, dubstep, drum and bass, electro, etc. This powerful remix is suitable for anyone’s taste and REVOKE absolutely turned this pristine song into a vibey, head-banging, swoon worthy track of the week. Grab your free download today and let this tune make you question everything you think you know about music.
Smile (Hyperbits & Jenaux Remix)
Often times we come across those tracks that make us drop everything we are doing in order for us to enjoy the moment for what it’s worth. Well today just seems to be one of those days where we probably aren’t going to be getting anything work-related done because we can’t seem to pick up those important things we previously dropped. Just a few moments ago we we noticed something popped up on our feed from a TMN favorite, Jenaux. At that moment we knew that we were about to strap ourselves in for a rollercoaster ride of some progressive feels. After we randomly discovered his remix of Panama Wedding’s, “Uma”, we instantly became fans from there on out. If you recall from that write up, Jenaux re-introduced us to the side of Progressive House that we all genuinely love and appreciate so much.
We are filled with joy today, ninjas, because Jenaux is back with another synergetic masterpiece and this time alongside House producer, Hyperbits. The two decided to link up and take on the incredible number, “Smile”, by Galantis. This Summer anthem is full of emotionally moving melodies, uplifting builds, and a breakdown that’ll have you smiling from ear to ear. Jenaux and Hyperbits instantly took us back to the Identity Festival days of hugging, dancing, and PLURing with everyone and their furries. This song is bound to make you smile, so for that, we wish you all a happy #ThrowbackThursday because you’ll definitely be thinking back to your favorite festival moments after hearing this stunning piece.
