[Review] Crywolf – Angels EP

crywolf

After weeks of letting one of the most beautiful EP’s collect dust in my inbox, I have finally found the inspiration to serve it justice. Now that the cobwebs have been removed, and the emotional channels have opened up, I am eager to share my experience with all of you after hearing the latest EP from one of TMN’s favorite artists, Crywolf.

Last month, we did a memorable write-up for Crywolf about the release of his new single, “Eyes Half Closed,” off his new EP, Angels (out now on iTunes). If you had the chance to read what we had to say, then you already know about the intense feels we shared with all of you that day. Since then, Crywolf relinquished the euphoria of Angels to the world, and has sent us all into sensory overload. Each and every song on this EP tells an intrepid story full of tragedy, love, hope and reassurance. With it being a continuous EP, Crywolf gives us an excuse to dive into an introspective state of reflection for twenty-five minutes.

On a personal note, I have been putting this review off over the month now. Despite being behind, I truly feel this EP deserves more than enough attention than it already has received. Each and every week I find myself blasting this impeccable masterpiece during the moments in which I require some solace. Not only has this album given me a new sense of understanding, but it has played a major role in today’s electronic music world. As we continue on the path towards unification through music, it is important to note the artists that are making the bold move to create music that intricately speaks for itself. Crywolf’s EP, Angels, is artistic proof that we are now starting to evolve in the right direction. We hope you enjoy this EP as much as we did. Prepare for one of the most surreal experiences of your life, and let the euphoric melodies take you through your own journey towards that conclusive resolve of understanding.

Birds Sing EP Mini Mix

The 3-man production trio The McMash Clan released their debut EP earlier this morning for Circus Records, and it’s quite something. The label is becoming increasingly varied in their musical scope, and this group is one of the most versatile within the bass scene at the moment.

Their Birds Sing EP takes you on a musical journey, exploring glitch, drum & bass and trap along the way – and all produced with immaculate attention to detail. They bring on board Kate Mullins, Late Day Breakers and Dodge & Fuski – with the latter remixing their glorious “Jericho.” A must-listen for any bass head, you can purchase a copy here.

 Be sure to check out this exclusive minimix below for a taste of the EP.

[Review] Monstercat 017 – Ascension

monstercat

After successfully topping the album charts on iTunes Dance and solidifying themselves as one of the top independent labels in dance music, Monstercat has proven that they are the next driving force in todays industry. Housing artists such as Krewella, Pegboard Nerds, Haywyre, Vicetone, and more, the label has made it clear that their forward thinking mindset, along with their elite team full of passionate artists, are revolutionizing the music world day by day.

With the forefront of their operations being among some of the most well renowned talent out there, it was only a matter of time until the next wave of Monster-kittens made their rounds to showcase their ground-breaking productions. Well, ninjas, the wait is officially over because Monstercat dropped an intense load of eclectic feels on the world last week with the release of their 17th compilation album, Ascension. Including artists such as Aero Chord, Rootkit, SCNDL, Varien!, and more, this album showcases a wide array of genres that will tickle everyone’s fancy. The ninjas here at TMN have been listening to this compilation album over and over again, to which we find something new and enticing each and every time. Through each song we are able to senselessly move to the beautiful melodies and discover the intrinsic meaning that each artist conveys in their masterpieces. In the end, one will have lost all sense of their existing state of mind and embark on an intense journey into this lucid world full of numbing basslines, spine-tingling melodies, and ear-shattering breakdowns strong enough to melt your face off.

As music continues to evolve and artists begin to experiment with production, Monstercat continues to deliver us that next big sound. Their ability to stay ahead of everyone else is what separates them from the rest of the crowd, and for that, we cannot wait until these kittens bring forth the next round of talent to make us question the word around us. Ascension has given us that conclusive resolve within ourselves and is proof that Monstercat knows the true definition of artistry. Make sure to support these artists and purchase your copy today; we promise you will not regret this decision in any way shape or form.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #86

chill dojo

Some places have the weather, some have the beaches, and some have the never-ending party vibe, but Norway has now cemented itself as the home of summer as far as music is concerned. We’ve heard the amazing tropical stylings of both Kygo and Bearson throughout the year so far, but this magical land has made our jaw drop once again with another talented artist in Matoma. It doesn’t take long to realize that the 22 year old has a serious skill for composition, and every one of his productions is soaked in good vibes and just oozes happiness. He knows his way around an acapella as well, as these remixes of ‘Old Thing Back’ and ‘Higher Love’ will show, but be sure to check out his whole Soundcloud for plenty more material to throw straight into your latest summer playlist. It’s been a while since our latest dose of Snakehips, and this week we’ve been blessed with some of that production we know and love alongside some flawless vocal work from Sinead Harnett. The soulful songstress has worked alongside names like Disclosure and Ryan Hemsworth in recent times, but her blissful style just feels right at home over this bed of warm sultry groove. Consider us well and truly addicted. Peking Duk’s anthem ‘High’ has achieved a similar effect worldwide since it’s release, but it’s this vibe-filled version from Yahtzel that has got us hooked all over again. Whether it’s belting out the familiar lyrics or just bopping along to the infectious beat, this is a remix guaranteed to have waves of summer festival-goers under its complete control. We’re shifting from the festival stage to the heated dance-floor now, because Frenchman Darius has once again cooked up another killer piece of funk in his take on MØ’s ‘Don’t Wanna Dance’. But it really doesn’t matter what you want to do, because there’s no stopping your body from moving to this crazy groove, and there’s nothing that can prepare for you for the absolute eargasm that happens at 1:50. That’s way too hot to handle!!

We’re far from done yet though, because we’ve got some new Tobtok to add to the mix as well, so be expecting another big serve of the tropics to inject some joy into your day. This smile-inducing remix of the Zak Waters original will turn around even the darkest day into something worth celebrating, so lose yourself in this feel-good atmosphere of chill goodness. Zak’s been busy doing his own remix work lately as well, and we just love how well his vocals for ‘Over You’ meld so well with the timeless Breakbot classic. And because we love highlighting talent that you just have to hear in the Chill Dojo, we end the write-up with a big shout out to this jam from Kyle Hallam. We don’t know much other than the fact he hails from the warm climate of Australia’s northeast coast, but ‘Deep’ is as fresh as it gets, so that is enough to keep us satisfied for the time being. We see you Kyle.

Alright that wraps it up for another week, but your job is far from done after reading this. Get amongst it! Peace out.

Zak Waters vs Breakbot – Over You (Baby, I’m Yours Redux) [TMN Premiere]

Zak Waters Vs. Breakbot
Over You (Baby, I'm Yours Redux) Free Download

If there is one guy who knows how to swoon you with just the sound of his voice, it’s Zak Waters. Most of us are familiar with his name due in part to his collaboration with Adventure Club and David Solano for their incredible song, “Life In Color.” Since then, Zak has been tirelessly working on his own original productions that combine both his versatility as a vocalist and his love for dance music.

Since it’s Friday and we love to give you all free music, we have a special gift from Zak with the premiere of his redux of Breakbot’s “Baby, I’m Yours” versus his own original song, “Over You.” Here at TMN, we’ve become very familiar with “Over You” since we included the track in Sunday Night Soul Volume 12 back in February, to which every couple made sweet love with this man’s voice in the background.

Well ninjas, it’s time to prepare for another night beneath the sheets, because Zak is giving out this redux version of “Over You” vs “Baby, I’m Yours” to all of his fans to show his appreciation. This funky tune exudes enough soul and sexual tension to make the clothes melt right off of your body. Grab your free download, turn up the volume, and share the moment with someone sexy.

[Nu-Disco] Michael Jackson – Love Never Felt So Good (Slinger Remix)

Michael Jackson
Love Never Felt So Good (Slinger Remix)

Fresh off of one of our favorite Nu-Disco takes on popular music, Slinger returns again to grace these hallowed pages of TMN with a high-energy disco rewrite of Michael Jackson’s posthumous charting single “Love Never Felt So Good”. Already with remixes of Prince and Pharrell under his belt, it was the perfect window for that glossy and ultimately mysterious nu-disco of Slinger to wrap itself up with the inimitable vocals from the King of Pop. Slinger’s remix begins with washy synth pads fueled by a simple upscale of strings before an exploding kick drum clears quite the followable auditory path for the tune to build into a dance floor assault. Again we’re taken one step further with the addition of a classic house piano and even a slight pan-flutey breakdown to pull a smile from even the most serious of dance groovers. Once again, this one is being given away in exchange for a Facebook like, so hop to it Ninjas.

[Electro] Wolfgang Gartner & Popeska – We Are The Computers

Wolfgang Gartner & Popeska
Wolfgang Gartner & Popeska
We Are The Computers (Free Download)

If you could morph Daft Punk with Wolfgang Gartner, Popeska, some video game noises, and an analog synthesizer this would be the lovechild. On “We Are The Computers” Wolfgang takes a step out of his comfort zone and approaches things a bit differently than normal. With Popeska being on the track you already know this is going to be a serious banger. Expect to hear this all over; it is about to be festival season! With quality like this, they easily could have had “We Are The Computers” released on Ultra Records or really any for that matter, but instead they put it out on Wolfgang’s label ‘Kindergarten Records’. For some odd reason, “We Are The Computers” takes me back to the first time I ever hopped on Sega Genesis and played Sonic The Hedgehog! Even though Wolfgang Gartner & Popeska’s newest track was put out on a record label, it is available for free download! Let this tune take you on a mystical journey back through time on a train of nostalgia.
