MIA – Paper Planes (Eau Claire Remix) [TMN PREMIERE]

Eau Claire - Paper Planes
Paper Planes (Eau Claire Remix)

To end the year on a positive note, here’s a feel-good tune for all the happy souls out there. DC-based Eau Claire has been on a roll with her sophisticated remixes, whether it’s a Stevie Wonder oldie or a Mike Posner Top 40 pop hit, she manages to pick just the right tracks to remix all while showing finesse and character in her music. Reworking MIA‘s one-hit wonder “Paper Planes”, Eau Claire aims to create something that’s both inventive and reminiscent.

It starts off with a series of oriental sounding synth, accompanied by a classic house beat. The original tune is flipped and turned into a fun and loosening dance track. The subtle dissonance before the catchy drop shows the level of complexity and uniqueness of the song. Many would criticize disco music for being dull and repetitive, yet this track says otherwise. It’s definitely not your average banger. While staying true to her music, the talented Eau Claire is set to take on the nu-disco scene by storm. Make sure to follow her for more dope tunes to come!

[Must Listen] Rude – Disco

Disco (demo)

If there’s one thing we’ve learned about music blogging over the past five years, it’s that there’s no way to get to it all. We miss tracks. We miss EPs. We miss LPs. We miss shows, festivals, and live streams. There’s just too much to keep up with.

Unfortunately, we did miss this grin-inducing tune from the enigmatic Rude, five months back. Fortunately for those of you who haven’t heard it, we’re ok with admitting we missed an amazing tune and are beaming to post about it today.

Impressively enough, “Disco” is the debut track from this British outfit, and simply put: it glimmers with the same type of unadulterated happiness that one would expect drawn across the face of a child walking into Disneyland. It’s a spattering, quirky, and highly engaging tune, brought together by a playful, guitar progression, upbeat percussion and claps, and frolicsome lyrics.

Addiction is inevitable with “Disco.” Throw it on, dance around, and enjoy smiling from ear-to-ear.

[Chill] Rae Morris – From Above (67th Hour Remix)

Rae Morris
From Above (67th Hour Remix)

Blackpool-based singer/songwriter Rae Morris has some intensely emotive vocals that perfectly carry the immersive lyrics she crafts, so hearing some golden remixes that follow her works should be consistently expected from now until she hangs up her microphone.

Today we have an unofficial remix from Netherlands native 67th Hour, who has sped up the original piano melody, and coupled it with a smooth bassline. The light rattles and hi-hat hits paired with the echoing synths create a delicate, chill vibe, perfect for getting some work done, or just relaxing at home. Take one listen through. We’re sure you’ll agree that this is one to hold on to.

It was only recently that I first heard the Rae Morris’ music, but after hearing her track called “From Above,” I immediately got inspired to make my own rendition.

Denver is growing at an exponential rate. Not just with the ever expansion in the field of tech and startups, or the amount of new restaurants and international cuisines that are calling this city their home, but more importantly its become a breeding ground for all things dance music. Granted, the Mile High City has had this very reputation for decades now, but it becomes even more apparent when the reply from electronic lovers when asked what they will be doing for New Years Eve, is in fact, “DECADENCE.”

Celebrating their 4th annual dance party (having expanding to two days last year and continuing to do so for 2014), Global Dance is turning it up to eleven, in cooperation with AEG and Live Nation to make the welcoming of 2015 the most promising. Think we are hyping this up too much? How does back to back sets from Paper Diamonds, Ecotek, Claude Vonstroke, W & W, Disclosure and Bassnectar among others sound? and in Decadence fashion that is just considered a tease as for the following day you can expect Felix Cartel, Grazmatik, Madeon, Flux Pavilion, Deorro and Big Gigantic to finish it all off.

Pure, sweet and devastating electronic destruction is always what to be expected when Global Dance is involved. The Music Ninja will be there for both days at the Colorado Convention Center and you can follow us through live updates on twitter #decadenceninjas. Without further ado, here is our 2014 end of the year Decadence Preview Playlist.

[Nu-Disco] Shy For Shore – Steal My Car (Hndmade Remix)

Shy For Shore - Steal my Car (Hndmade Remix)
Shy For Shore
Steal My Car (Hndmade Remix) [EDM.Com Premiere]

We have quite a special tune for y’all today. Norwegian duo Hndmade came out with this unique remix of Shy For Shore‘s “Steal My Car”, and let’s just say the more you listen to it, the more addicting this gets! The track starts off with vocal sample from the original tune, accompanied by a series of 8-bit synth. The buildup to the juicy drop is ominous and bold, perfectly showcasing the group’s Scandinavian influence. The trip-hop approach of the track almost resembles Little Dragon, where the dark instrumentals further accentuate the pureness of the vocals.

Hndmade might be new but their skillset and knowledge are way beyond their years. Make sure to stay tuned for more dope remixes coming your way in from these talented European artists!

The Chill Dojo #114

chill dojo

We’ve come to the last Chill Dojo of the year and there’s still plenty of amazing music to cover off before 2014 is done and dusted. As always, the Christmas period is a generous time where artists gift their fans with the end-of year releases, so rest-assured this final edition is stuffed with the freshest tunes we could find.

What is it with New Zealand and talented young vocalists? ‘If Only’ boasts some serious potential from 17 year-old songstress Maya Payne, and we can only hope future songs of this same caliber can rocket her to Lorde levels of stardom. The enchanting vocals alone are enough to warrant our full support, but the Flume-like production elevates this track to a certified anthem. Speaking about recognition, young Melbourne duo Two Can are finally getting their just deserts thanks to their recent soulful release ‘Double Edge’, which is since nearing the 200k play mark. The clean beat creates the perfect environment for Father Dude to work his vocal magic, and together they combine for an incredible feeling that reaches deep inside. This year has seen its fair share of remixes for the sun-drenched ‘Till Sunrise’, but it’s Mysto and Pizzi who will have the last say on Goldroom’s hit before 2014 is up. Their re-imagination  makes a point of demonstrating the evident depth to their musical prowess, floating between progressive and downtempo elements which meld together in a wonderful cohesion.

2014 will be remembered for the rise of the Tropical genre, and the next two features from Henri Pfr and Matoma will be our nods to the success it achieved in the world of electronic music. It’s been another great year for Chill vibes as a whole though, and the Dojo has been kept busy each and every day scouting for all those treasures that just need to be shared. You can be sure the work will continue right where we left off. Peace out.

[Electro Pop] The Heydaze – Adderall (Gazzo & Sweekuh Remix)

The Heydaze
Adderall (Gazzo & Sweekuh Remix)

As we have mentioned before, collaborations are one of our favorite things at TMN. You’re getting to listen to a completely new product, a mixture of the different musical elements of two artists to create a unique outcome. Recently, we got whiff of a collab including East coast producers Gazzo and Sweekuh, and may we tell you it is one hell of a treat to the ears.

Considering many of us are still enduring the struggles of college, the boys released their remix of The Heydaze original catchy pop tune, “Adderall” just in time for finals. With the incredible energy produced by an infectious melody and a toe-tapping beat, the track easily soothes the mind during any time of stress, or misery for those of us who got screwed by finals. So take a breather and check out the tune that will inevitably put you in the best of spirits for the holidays.
