As we sit here enjoying our morning cup of green tea and oatmeal, we can’t help but crave a sweet and succulent sound to accompany this divine setting. Sometimes all we need is a dose of some mystical melodies and a soothing bassline to help center our souls. Well ninjas, we’re here to satisfy your sweet tooth with an original new masterpiece from TMN’s favorite producer trio, Autograf. Now that we’ve been introduced to their unique approach to production, we can’t help but anxiously type away at this post because all we really want to say is: “STOP EVERYTHING. THIS IS AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: AUTOGRAF. THAT IS ALL”. Considering that’s not the most professional nor the most informative way to express our enthusiasm, we felt that we should spend a little bit more time crafting this auditory number into a well-written depiction of their vision.

After months and months of smashing the Hype Machine charts, Autograf has finally blessed our music feed with their first original track titled “Dream”. In a sense, the title of this track encapsulates the very essence of what it feels like to be submerged underneath the depths of our dreams. Filled with ambient tropical melodies, soothing piano riffs, and an ethereal vocal that guides us deep into the very core of our subconscious, Autograf gives us a picturesque interpretation of our unconscious realm and allows our ears to soak themselves into a state of pure bliss. Once again, Autograf continues to showcase their unique perspective by means of sound design and creative expression. We guarantee you’ll have this one on repeat for the rest of the day, so press play, sink into a lucid state of mind, and let this heavenly song hypnotize your soul and magnify your thoughts.

[SXSW Showcase Preview] Heroes for a Cause – 3/19 – Krave

colorfix11X17losecontrol

By a silent show of ninja hands, who’s getting excited for SXSW? Since we’re ninjas, we can sense that a sea of quiet, gloved, star-holding hands just flew up into the air.

While we’re sure you’ve already been filling up your dance card with possible showcase suitors, we’d like to cordially ask for those aforementioned hands on Thursday, 3/19, from 8PM -2AM.

We’ve teamed up with our friends at Cadence & Cause, ATL bass baron heRobust, and Lose Control (the best unofficial SXSW party-throwers) to bring you “Heroes For a Cause.” Yes, it’s a free show, so long as you RSVP, but the show is dead set on raising money for shelter pets in the US.

heRobust, along with a few other artists, will be hosting full streams of their sets from the show on Cadence & Cause later next week for a nominal charge. The majority of those proceeds will go to help keep animals fed, clean and comfortable during their adoption process.

To get you stoked for this line up of DJs, rappers, and a R&B singer, we’re curated a little celebratory playlist for you to enjoy.

Young Summer – Blood Love (Big Wild Remix) [TMN Premiere]

Blood Love Big Wild Remix
Young Summer
Blood Love (Big Wild Remix)

Big Wild has been building a dedicated following on SoundCloud since the 2013 release of his impressive debut EP, Native Echos. Last year proved a huge one for the LA-based producer, as he continued cranking out a diverse collection of sounds that mix an organic, almost tribal, sensibility towards bass and percussion with lush elements of EDM. It’s little surprise that his forward-thinking style garnered the attention of like-minded ninja favorites, Odesza, who invited him to join the North American leg of their massively successful 2014 No.Sleep tour.

Today, Odesza officially announced the launch of the Foreign Family Collective, a platform the duo will use to highlight their favorite up ‘n coming artists, through which Big Wild will be releasing his next single. With a number of major performances under his belt and support from some of electronic music’s most respected names, the rising producer has positioned himself for a huge 2015 and we’re excited to be bringing you the premiere of his latest remix.

Taking on Young Summer‘s “Blood Love,” Big Wild showcases his versatility utilizing the original’s hauntingly beautiful vocals and a minimal backdrop to lure the listener in before dropping into an absolute explosion of a chorus. There’s a certain emotional accessibility in Big Wild’s music that’s truly amplified on this addicting cut. Give it a spin above and see for yourself. Big Wild will be at SXSW and also embarking on a US tour with Kodak to Graph and OBESØN–check his upcoming tour dates here.

Ninjas, WMC is right around the corner. What’s even scarier is, SXSW is even closer, and we’re still trying to scramble for that. However, we are pleased to announce that we’re joining the effort to help co-promote this epic event.

Tickets are only $25, if you pick them up before the event. If you have a badge, the show is free, so long as you RSVP. They do suggest that you donate some at the door though, as this is for a very worthy cause.

The line-up has some absolutely legendary names, which you can see below in our preview playlist. If you’re in Miami for the week, this event should rank high in your list of “can’t miss.”

[Playlist] TomorrowWorld Announces 2015 Musical Curators

TOMORROW

It’s hard to even fathom any festivals beyond SXSW and WMC right now, but with TommorrowWorld’s recent announcement, we’ll gladly take a break from the impending madness to share the news.

Just last week, the promoters of TomorrowWorld shared some insight on what’s in store for the festival’s third year. While we’re still on our toes for the first phase of lineup to be announced, TomorrowWorld has announced their 2015 musical partners that will be curating the festival’s various stages.

From Hardwell’s Revealed stage, to the Hospital Records stage, to a Future Classic stage, planning your show schedule is going to be a difficult task. Every genre of dance music will be represented to some degree at the fairytale-themed festival, and these curators are a true statement to the caliber of talent that TomorrowWorld is known for. In addition to the artist curated stages, themed stages will also be present as the festival brings back It’s a Trap! and Mythical Frames while also introducing two new themed stages – a Future House stage and the L!ve stage.

Last but not least, for the .0001% of you that have a legitimate conflict with this year’s festival, TomorrowWorld is not planning on leaving anytime soon. As of last week, the Chattahoochee Hills City Council officially extended the festival’s land usage permit for TomorrowWorld in 2025. It seems the people of Georgia want to keep the mystical event around for their kids to experience as well.

In celebration of this curator announcement, we’ve pulled together playlists from them all. While we can’t guarantee that any of the acts from these will make the cut, they should give you a strong indication of what to expect.

’ALL GONE PETE TONG: Pete Tong’

[Future R&B] Vinnie ft. Duncan – OD

vinnie
VINNIE
OD Ft Duncan (Original Mix)

We already showed this Colorado collaboration some love in last week’s Sunday Night Soul, but we felt like “OD” deserved a post on its own.

Coming out a few days ago, this infectious and energetic future R&B tune not only showcases Vinnie’s ability to aptly produce multiple types of genres, but it also provides a glimpse into the stunning vocals from up-and-coming singer/songwriter Duncan. Seemingly made for each other, the soaring synths and playful bassline pair perfectly with the fluctuating vocal range. The tune doesn’t take itself too seriously, allowing the listener to grin and have some fun with it, which only adds to the entire experience.

This tune can be purchased here, with the majority of the proceeds going to benefit childhood education around the world. There’s also a chance to win a very limited edition “OD” tee as well, which carries the cover art across the chest. When asked why they decided to partner up with this cause, the two had this to say:

We were so fortunate to have been provided with the opportunity of having great teachers, schools, and parents, without them we wouldn’t be able to follow our passion for music.

Children are our future, anything we can do to help them succeed should be a top priority for our society!

[Chill Trap] Kill Paris – Space Forest

Kill Paris - Space Forest
Kill Paris
Space Forest

Here is one of those tracks where you’ll scream “OH MY GOD!” to as soon as you listen. Kill Paris, a now Colorado-based producer, released “Space Forest” as a sneak peek of what his debut album Galaxies Between Us is all about. Moving away from his usual funk and glitch element, Kill Paris incorporates wobbly synths into a future trap beat. Listeners are taken on a journey through space, and are given this chill and dreamy vibe with the synth-heavy bass. Together with the delicate keys that accentuate a pleasant experience, the track is literally out of this world (HA get it?).

You do not want to miss out on quality music. Pay close attention to this talented artist, as his debut album is dropping April 14. Make sure to get a free download of this tune here if you dig it!
