[Electronic/Pop] Goldroom – Lying to You (RAC Mix)

Lying To You (RAC Mix)

Josh Legg’s bedroom recording project turned full-fledged live troupe, Goldroom, has been a mainstay for years here at TMN. His brand of syrupy-slick, dancefloor-directed electro-pop has captured the hearts (and ears for that matter) of listeners from a plethora of  genres. Whether it’s the indie archetypes, bubblegum pop consumers, or underground dance fans; Goldroom’s sounds has a resonation that few “dance” acts could dream of achieving. No doubt part of that luster and allure comes from the seemingly endless malleability of a Goldroom tune. Legg’s polished singles can be flipped, chopped and beefed up in so many different directions; and they have been as well. On the heels of a debut long player, West of the West, and accompanying national tour with Autograf (tour dates are listed below), Goldroom’s “Lying To You” has been scooped up by another one of our favorite producers, Andre Allen Anjos -better known to the world simply as RAC.

With similar yet opposing structural aesthetics, RAC remains true to the essence of Goldroom’s original recording, but whereas its counterpart is a slow-burning slice of 80’s nostalgia with a contemporary vocal, Anjos minimalizes his approach even further using a rolling synth punch and flitty pad work to make his mark. We’re big fans of both, but a fresh coat of RAC wax on a tune always stokes our fancy. Listen to RAC’s remix above, and check out the dates for Autograf & Goldroom’s tour below.

[Trap] LEVi​T∆TE. – Mecca 001


Over the course of the next few weeks, LEVi​T∆TE. will be teasing fans with episodes of his full length album Mecca. You might be wondering what exactly an episode is, but basically the Seattle producer will be dropping three tracks together each week for four weeks.

This week’s batch is the first. In kicking off the launch of Mecca, LEVi​T∆TE. starts out with “Check It,” a dark plunge into what the rest of the album will bring. “Jungle” comes next with a sound that I have yet to hear before; at least, not at this level of quality. The third single in this episode of Mecca is “Terrible Things” feature Macntaj. The hybrid trap single is more what fans of LEVi​T∆TE. have been used to, but he still manages to take his signature a step further. Stream all three singles today, and grab the free downloads one at a time through the single players!

[Electronic] courtship. – Stop For Nothing (SACHI Remix)

Stop For Nothing (SACHI Remix)

Auckland’s own SACHI, nominated for this year’s Best Breakthrough Act for the New Zealand Music Awards, have an official remix for courtship.‘s “Stop For Nothing.” Remixes for the single are being released one by one, and SACHI’s is next.

With their interpretation, the duo bring a unique style of future to the table that heavily takes from jersey club. The result is an immensely fun tune that makes for good listening no matter where you find yourself. Body Language’s take on “Stop For Nothing” was a great club rendition, but we think this one may just be a bit more exciting and special. SACHI show why they are among the best in their own country, as well as establish why they shouldn’t be looked over on a worldwide scale. Stream their remix today, and be on the lookout for the full remix EP to drop!

[Electronic] Kllo – Bolide (Lone Remix)

Bolide (LONE Remix)

Australian duo Kllo have been on our radar ever since the release of their gorgeous 2014 debut, Cusp, which found them nestled squarely between cozy R&B and dance music. After spending much of 2015 touring behind that successful project, they returned this year with the Well Worn EP. Their latest work saw the vocalist/production team of Chloe Kaul and Simon Lam further refine their sound delving deeper into various electronic influences. Of the 5 tracks, “Bolide” has resonated the most with fans and for good reason. With a pulsing bass line, subtly-crafted percussion and gliding vocals, it’s a track that envelopes the listener with emotion.

As they continue building momentum, Kllo have commissioned legendary UK producer Lone to take on “Bolide” with phenomenal results. The original’s ongoing vocal chop feeds perfectly into Lone’s distinctive blend of hip-hop and house stylings. While the remix is similarly atmospheric, it employs furious percussion and layered pads–taking it from downtempo to club-ready without sacrificing the most enticing elements.

Give this one a listen above and make sure to check out the Well Worn EP if you haven’t yet. Kllo are currently on the road touring with Rufus Du Sol and NAO–check out dates after the jump!  Continue reading

LACEI – 11:11 EP [TMN Premiere]


Today, the ninjas have something special for you. The Los Angeles duo LACEI will be releasing their debut EP this Friday, but today we share it with you in full through our exclusive premiere! 11:11 is the project, packed with four singles, including their already released song “Cold Moon.”

LACEI’s project is a cool mixture of indie, pop and electronic music. “Right Here” introduces us to the EP with some drum & bass vibes that really get the energy tone set. Next we have “Sufferer,” which will be the next song to drop on the EP. It tones down the pace a bit, bringing in more of an emotional appeal. Then “Cold Moon” brings the energy back up, and part one of “Somewhere Beyond The Stars” comes in with its completely different sound. Airy, ethereal; this one is a special tune, and we can’t wait to hear part two! For now, enjoy the exclusive stream of 11:11.

PS, if you’re in the Los Angeles area, catch LACEI at The Study on Friday night! Tickets and show information can be found at the event’s web page.

[Electronic] Fareoh – Illegal


Fareoh always manages to keep his work fresh and exciting. How he does it, we can’t be too sure, but what we can do is appreciate every time he releases a record. His most recent is fabulous, and it’s called “Illegal.”

Let’s face it, every one loves something that is illegal. Now it may not be technically illegal, it can still be out of our reach. Fareoh describes this track as the feeling you get when you find yourself in that situation. We’ve all been there, and we’d have to agree with the sonic representation. Not only do we agree, but we love just what he’s done with “Illegal.” Not only that, but Katelyn Tarver just crushed it with her vocal performance on this single. It’s an all around sweet record. There’s no surprise that Ultra Records got behind this one. Stream or purchase it today!

[Electronic] Comet Blue – Shooting Star

Comet Blue
Shooting Star

Comet Blue is coming in burning hot with the original single “Shooting Star.” Despite the act coming in hot, the Epic Amsterdam release is one chilled out crossover record.

“Shooting Star” brings influence from house, pop and indie dance. She’s been pushing some really great records over the course of the past year, with some people calling for her to takeover Kygo’s place at the top of the chill house sub-genre. She’s certainly got what it takes to make it in the industry, as her musical skills are out of this world. She continues to astonish us with her work that seems only to be getting better and better. Until next time, enjoy one of our favorites of hers, “Shooting Star.”
