U Don't Have To Call (67th Hour Remix)

There’s usually always a part of the week where you need to clear your head. No matter what you’ve got going on, a short reset is a necessity and then you can jump right back into your groove. We’ve got a nice way to enjoy your break right here thanks to a master of chilled out house, 67th Hours. About a week ago (week ago), he comforted our ears with a blissful edition of “U Don’t Have To Call” by Chilidish Gambino, and it is the perfect recipe for a mid week lull. With a subtle tropical atmosphere, the tune is simple in nature with minimal percussion, but is comforting to our ears and even tugs on the heartstrings a little bit. The filtered guitar and vocals are dreamlike, and, being the focus of the track, really bring the tune together. Grab your copy through his Facebook and find some peace.

After listening through this a few times, it’s clear to us that we can’t help but stay hooked on both of these artists. As soon as you press play, we are introduced with a haunting melody, crippling reverberated synths, and pulsating rhythms full of bass. Needless to say, we can’t keep our ears away from this one and neither will you.

All I Want (Illenium Remix)

Often times we come across a song that completely takes us on an emotional journey from start to finish. One such artist that consistently perfects the art of melodic music is Denver producer, Illenium. With his impeccable and genius song choices, the young producer continues to take our favorite songs and transform them into something truly ethereal.

Filled with atmospheric, uplifting elements that intertwine with a soft, yet, moving piano melody, Illenium infuses this track with angelically reverberated vocals, haunting synth harmonies, and bone-chilling breakdowns that will cover your skin with goosebumps. We here at TMN are impressed with the level at which he has taken his sound design and this remix is clear proof that he is paving the way in music as we speak.

[Chill] Mura Masa – The Way I Want U

Thinking Out Loud (Mura Masa Remix)

UK producer Mura Masa put out one of our favorite albums of 2014 with Soundtrack to a Death, a complete and diverse collection of emotional, experimental electronic music. The latest original from Mura Masa, which will be a part of Jakarta Records‘s upcoming compilation, feels like it could easily have been a part of his phenomenal debut. “The Way I Want U” has a shimmering sound to it contrasted by a heavy bassline and 808s giving it a cloud-trap feel. Mura Masa’s use of the vocal sample adds a certain depth to the track and his composition remains on-point, which makes listening a dynamic journey. Enjoy this one above along with two recent remixes from Mura Masa of Ed Sheeran and Aquilo, which will give you a sense of the young artist’s impressive versatility. Jakarta Records’ Winter in Jakarta will be free to download on February 9th–you can stream several of the tracks already at their Soundcloud page.

[Mix] Christofi – February 2015 Mix

February Mix Final Artwork
February 2015 Mix

It’s a rarity that we post mixes here on TMN. Not that we have anything against them, it’s just that we’re usually focused on freshly released singles. However, Los Angeles-based producer/DJ Christofi has put together a quality selection tunes mixed in a manner that we just couldn’t pass up.

This collection features plenty of housey gems, disco beats, and future house-infused hip hop remixes. Some of these come from artists he admires, and some are his own work (and unreleased, we might add). They all seamlessly come together in this glowing mix that’s quite perfect for getting you through the next hour of work, your nightly workout, or this weekend’s dance off.

Do us a favor? Make sure you’re the one who’s doing the serving at the dance off.

Bobby Nourmand – The Sound [TMN PREMIERE]

BobbyNourmand - the sound
Bobby Nourmand
The Sound
Mrs. Robinson: Benjamin, I am not trying to seduce you.
Benjamin: I know that, but please, Mrs. Robinson, this is difficult…
Mrs. Robinson: Would you like me to seduce you?
Benjamin: What?
Mrs. Robinson: Is that what you’re trying to tell me?
Benjamin: I’m going home now. I apologize for what I said. I hope you can forget it, but I’m going home right now.

We’re right there with Bobby Nourmand. We think that every dance-music-loving youngster should know the timeless classics, including “The Sound of Silence,” by Simon and Garfunkle, and the movie The Graduate. So, instead of just limiting this post to talks about the haunting, chilling, and ominous vocals laid over light, dripping synths and cavernous bass hits, we’re going to include a little bit history as well.

Paying homage to historical tunes is no new thing for this Angelino. Just last month, Nourmand dropped a tribute to The Doors on Jim Morrison’s birthday, and today he’s focusing in on the legendary tune from Simon and Garfunkle’s debut album, Wednesday Morning, 3AM.

Obviously well known for its inclusion in The Graduate (which wasn’t actually supposed to happen), this tune has transcended generations through its inclusion in not only the previously mentioned film, but also Kingpin and Old School. In fact, some of you may remember it as a part of some inner reflections from Gob on Arrested Development.

Now, “The Sound of Silence” is being brought into the 2015 with a dark, deep house vibe, thanks to this up-and-coming producer. The vocals and heavily treated sampled fingerpicking carry a foreboding feeling, ultimately leading us to a driving beat, sidechained with a hi-hat hit for extra emphasis. The end result: something we’re aching to hear at an underground warehouse party early in the morning. With this being a free download, it’s something we fully expect this weekend.
