[Alternative R&B] Willow Smith feat. SZA – 9

9 (feat. SZA)

The talented Willow Smith is set to take over the industry with the release of her upcoming 3 EP. Only 14 years of age, the music star child shows her new found passion in alternative R&B. Of the three songs in the EP, “9″ stands out as the track that best represents Willow’s current direction of her music. Her sharp and powerful vocals flow perfectly alongside SZA’s magical voice to help create a dreamy touch to the hollowed instrumental. It’s a memorable and wonderful track.

With an ever-growing fan base, Willow Smith is climbing up the ladder in the neo-soul/alternative R&B scene. As she continues to catch everyone by surprise with her new music, it is safe to say that sky is the limit for Ms. Smith. We are excited to see what else she has in store for us.

[NEW] MNEK – The Rythm

MNEK
The Rhythm

UK vocalist, songwriter and producer, MNEK, has quickly established himself as a hit-maker with “Ready for Your Love,” his infectious collab with Gorgon City, “Wrote a Song About You,” his breakout solo single and a load of high-caliber production credits. His soulful vocals have a way of meshing with electronic production impeccably making for a sound both danceable and relaxing–a prevalent quality with a number of our favorite up ‘n comers. His latest offering, “Rythm,” is no different continuing to demonstrate this equilibrium. MNEK’s vocals shine as the backdrop builds until the 1:15 mark when a minimalistic groovy bassline is introduced accompanying a looped vocal sample. “Rythm” makes for the perfect first cut to kick off your Friday evening. Give it a spin above.

[NEW] The Neighbourhood – #icanteven (Feat. French Montana)

#icanteven (feat. French Montana)

If you told me before today that you foresaw The Neighbourhood teaming up with French Montana to create a single titled “#icanteven,” I would say you sir (or madam) are a liar. Before you rush to judgment about the cliché hashtagged title, let us assure you that this is not the basic girl anthem you might perceive it to be. Set to be featured on the group’s upcoming album, #000000 & #FFFFFF (that translates to black and white for those fluent in HTML), this new tune is a heavy hearted banger that deals with the rage that spills over when finding out your special someone has cheated on you. Though French Montana is an interesting addition (Lamar Odom says hi), he actually delivers a surprisingly catchy verse that fits in nicely over the wicked instrumental. “#icanteven” say I’m mad about his inclusion on this one.

Stream the track above, and look out for #000000 & #FFFFFF when it drops next week on Thanksgiving.

Years and Years
Memo

British electronic group Years & Years just released another track off their upcoming album Desire. and this one hits us right in the feels. Describing their own music as soulful electronic pop, Years & Years speaks to their audience through memorable melodies and soothing vocals. Olly Alexander, the lead singer of the group, definitely stole the spotlight by showcasing his pleasant R&B vocals. The synths and the simple piano chords perfectly support the flow of the tune. Everything about this track is done right and leaves you wanting more.

With that said, stay tuned for the group’s much anticipated album releasing on 11/23. We cannot wait to listen to more of their new music!

[Nu-Disco/Dance-Pop] Kimbra – Miracle (ROOM8 Remix)

Kimbra
Miracle (ROOM8 Remix)

L.A. future disco players Ezra Reich and Nic Johns, who operate under the ROOM8 surname, have delivered perhaps the biggest musical pick-me-up of the week here at TMN with their synth washed, John Hughes-era tipping dance revision of one of our favorite pop darlings Kimbra and her single “Miracle”. This jumping dance tune plays somewhere between Club 8′s syrupy dance-pop and Viceroy’s high-energy disco, with a smooth underground sensibility and edge that is often times lost amongst dance-floor driven nu-disco cuts. ROOM8 works a crafty balance of retro sound kits with a contemporary approach, and quite honestly, Kimbra’s vocal stylings echo as if they were made for the 80′s neon era. This one is being given away as a free download; so grab a copy here, dust off your sweat bands and footwork those high tops all over the floor.
