Come Alive (feat. Toro y Moi)
Electro-funk duo Chromeo have been putting in work for the last few months as they prepare for the release of their 4th studio album, White Women. With some already quality releases, the project promises to continue Chromeo’s contribution to the resurgence of funk in the 21st century.
On their latest release, the talented producers team up with another funk ambassador in Chaz Bundick of Toro y Moi for the vintage, feel-good “Come Alive.” This one is a perfect pick-me-up for today, the first Monday after the holiday vacation. Vibe out above and keep an eye out for White Women, which should be released in the next few months.
Anything new from Cashmere Cat is sure to have our attention. And this track is nothing short of amazing, hopefully off his upcoming ‘Wedding Bells’ EP. This “Untitled Track” was ripped from DJ Slow set at Overdrive Infinity on December 13, 2013. The vocal work and editing that is featured in this track is unparalleled, Magnus truly pulls out all the stops. And whatever instrument he uses for that whistling flute, is going to haunt your dreams for days to come. No news on the release date yet, but this should hold you over until ‘Wedding Bells’ drops. Cheers.
NINJAS! Happy effin’ new year. We hope you all had a happy and safe New Years’ eve, filled with libations, dancing and of course, dirty beats.

YOUNG (Mickey Valen Radio Edit)
We’ve had a full on musical man crush on AYER since posting his debut track, “Circle Down.” That man crush definitely escalated once we heard the whimsical nature of “Young.” Something about those vocals have captured our attention, and we’ll be damned if they won’t let go.
Right before the start of 2014, AYER’s producer, Mickey Valen (also known for his work with long-time TMN favorite NOOSA) dropped a light-hearted radio mix of “Young.” We know when we missed the boat on something, and not being able to get this post up definitely left us running down the dock yelling, “God dammit.”
The gorgeous piano work and uplifting dance beats flirt perfectly with the vocals, which would have been the perfect fit for an after midnight track on New Years. None the less, this interpretation will still crawl under your skin in all the best ways.
I’m just trying to have some fun.
Simply put and musically articulated. This statement, from LA based Licoln Jesser’s facebook page, sums up what you can expect to hear through his musical exploration.
Word on the street is, Jesser has an EP coming out on an undisclosed label this year. While we don’t have much more information than that, we can assure you that these two tracks will be included. First up in this dastardly duo of infectious indie pop is “Tops.” With light hearted snaps separating soaring synths and a funky bassline, Jesser has created a catchy tune that’s worthy of late nights, winding down after a night after the bars.
In a slightly more upbeat nature, “Something Right,” has a classic 80′s pop feel, boasting Jesser’s downplayed vocals. The beat is dancy, finding itself in compliment to the myriad of synthesizers.
After these first two tunes, we’re admittedly anxious to hear the rest of this upcoming EP. Make sure you keep an eye out. This one will be one not to miss.

With Me ( LCAW Remix )
Cashmere Cat has come and captured the adoration of the blogosphere, and everyone pretty much understands why. His unique style harnessing non traditional dance structures, atmospheric elements and meticulously placed instrumentals are overwhelmingly impressive. While us bloggers salivate at a new release of his, producers do as well, eager to put their spin on his tunes.
Today we’re featuring a chilled out house remix from German producer LCAW. The intro is dreamy, slowly welcoming you into his interpretation of “With Me.” The pianos gracefully carry over the sultry beats, creating a gorgeous soundscape. While the song never breaks into intense energy, it has a soulful vibe that calls to be danced to.
This remix is a free download. We suggest you pick it up right about now.
