Hot damn. You know when you come across one of those songs that just automatically gets you up and groovin’? Well if not, then we have the PERFECT House anthem from Los Angeles based producer, TEMPLETON and his killer new original, “Better Represent”. This 90′s inspired original takes you back to those 2 am nights in the club where you’ve been dancing for hours and your body just doesn’t seem to want to stop. Filled with wobbly bass lines, highly precise percussive elements, and catchy vocal chops, TEMPLETON takes us into the deeper side of production as it progresses into a perpetuating loop of total ear-candy. Make sure to grab your free download and get those booties movin’.
If there’s one thing we can’t get enough of over here in Southern California it’s 70 degree weather, kale smoothies, and some Golden Coast music to make our days much, much brighter. With only 4 songs on their Soundcloud and a few remixes by some well known artists, the sunshine state duo are back with a summery new track that will wrap your goosebump covered skin with a snuggie full of warmth.
After listening through “The Futurist” a few hundred times, we noticed that a) we REALLY love this track b) it has a slight Reggae influence in its predominately Indie nature, and c) we just REALLY love this track. Filled with mesmerizing guitar riffs, vibrant, tropical elements, and a catchy chorus that’ll be stuck in your head all day, Golden Coast undoubtedly just blew us straight into paradise with this one. These guys have been putting out solid content over the past few months and each release just seems to get better and better. We think “The Futurist” is their best track yet…but we know they’ll probably make us re-evaluate that bold statement.
This track is up for free download, however, if you want a copy for yourself just email the guys at: email@example.com and let them know you supported the track on Hype Machine! So if you’re feeling a bit cold today, wrap yourself up in this Golden Coast blanket of pure, sun shiny ecstasy.
Not familiar with the London based Oshi yet? Well that was just a matter of time, because this very wavy sound design was going to catch up to you eventually. Already getting some attention from the likes of Soulection, this track “i <3 u” should have you vibing all weekend long. Featuring a flawless piano melody and perfect vocal edits to complement the feels. Best of all it’s a FREE DOWNLOAD, so follow Oshi and cop this gem for free. Cheers.
Day Wave, the solo project of So-Cal indie-pop duo Carousel‘s vocal half- Jackson Philips, returns with another foggy, synth-driven cut “Total Zombie”. After dropping Day Wave’s debut single “Nothing At All” back in November, this time around, Day Wave’s focus seems to play a bit more pensive than his debut. Being a classically trained musician (and a highly trained one at that) clearly translates into a structural mastery of a multitude of music genres as well as the ability to turn out an addictive pop-riff masked in sterling instrumentation. “Total Zombie” playfully broods about behind a waxy, reverb laden guitar; intermingling with Philips’ gospel infused refrain harmoniously. It seems like the leak of recent Day Wave singles may be leading up to an EP or LP release, and you can bet your bottom Benjamins that we’ll be on top of all things Day Wave as they accumulate. Stream “Total Zombie” above.
The Way I Are (Chachi Remix)
NY-based veteran producer Chachi released this juicy remix of a semi-throwback track by originally by Timbaland and Keri Hilson, and it certainly showcases the producer’s skillset, as he fuses future house with electropop and a hint of hip-hop. The tune starts off with a looping vocal sample that continues to drive throughout the whole song. The main melody is still there, reminiscent of an old Top 40 track that makes you sing along no matter what. The bass drop features a series of hardhitting future bass maneuvers that would leave you headbanging ’til your head falls off. It’s catchy, it’s a banger, and we absolutely want to hear more. Make sure to grab a free download of the track or click here. Chachi is definitely an exciting producer to watch in this coming year.
Waiting So Long (Beat by: Sam Gellaitry)
This Canadian trio has jumped into the “future beats” scene in an unexpected way. Beginning in September of last year, DiRTY RADiO utilized their singing abilities to create vocal renditions of some of the best up and coming producers currently on SoundCloud, and have done a spectacular job of it thus far. From Flight Facilities to Pomo, these three have harmonized their way to increased success since their inception. Their latest endeavor is supplied with production by the young and talented Sam Gellaitry, and continues their precedent of letting their vocals shine while simultaneously sharing the spotlight with the producer they’ve recorded with. “Waiting So Long” bounces along nicely with DiRTY RADiO‘s group vocal and makes for a fun track to kick off the weekend with, so snag that free download and enjoy your Friday!
All Over (Bear//Face Remix)
Part of our philosophy here at TMN is to give every sound a chance. As a pretty diverse blog, not limiting our music selection to a specific genre, we tend to receive a fairly large amount of submissions. But one thing we will promise is every single submission is heard.
As a result of the music assortment we provide, there are many occasions that we find an original track we fall in love with, and not much later we start receiving remix submissions with quite different takes on that same song. Only a few months ago we posted CRUISR’s indie rock piece, “All Over.” Today we bring you Bear//Face’s remix. Taking the original, which emanates nothing but Cali vibes, Bear//Face gives it euphoric, dream-like make-over that puts your ears in a musical nirvana.
