Katy Perry
California Gurls (Matt DiMona Remix)

After each and every weekend, it becomes extremely difficult to enter back into reality because all we really want to do is relive our blacked slurs from Saturday night. As we sluggishly get ourselves out of bed to suffer through yet another monotonous and mundane Monday, we realized that we needed that extra ‘oomf’ to not only cure this unbearable hangover, but to also lift our spirits and give us a reason to not slip into the negativity that Monday’s tend to project. Well ninjas, get ready to become a California girl for the day because we have the ultimate tropical remedy from Matt DiMona that will undoubtedly make you want to grab your bikini, sip on long island ice teas, and soak up the Cali sun in the middle of October.

The Los Angeles producer decided to take on the fun, highly addictive and intoxicating radio hit, “California Gurls” from none other than Katy Perry. Filled with subtle tropical elements, an adorable piano melody, and a whole lot of ambient vibes, Matt DiMona melts our popsicles and elevates our sun-kissed souls to heights unimaginable. We are extremely pleased to share the latest from Matt in the form of a premiere because he sure did tickle our inner Katy Perry to the point of no return. As we continue to indulge on these succulent frequencies, make sure you lather on the SPF and prepare for the ultimate third degree sunburn because it only gets hotter the more you play it. Grab this freebie while you can and simmer in these Summer vibes for the rest of your day…we guarantee you’ll be floating in the clouds.

The Chill Dojo #104

chill dojo

It’s a rather funky edition this week, but before we get the groove officially going, we couldn’t go passed this killer piece of freshness from Sweater Beats. The title track off his upcoming EP, ‘Cloud City’ may draw a few comparisons to Flume in its future trap elements, but the artist brings this into his own with an energizing melody that will inspire you to take whatever challenges the day brings head on. Now that we’ve got your attention, let’s direct that towards Hoodboi’s glorious rendition of the Lido anthem ‘I Love You’. Known for his heavy Jersey influence, this time he takes a lighter approach to the remix, opting for a floaty atmosphere that peaks at the iconic “shout at the top of your lungs” hook.

Now it’s officially funk time, and there’s no better song to bring this in than this absolute jam from the young Canadian Zanski. A warning though, hit play on this bad boy and you won’t be satisfied until you hear it another 10 times. The funk leads and Gambino’s bars are a match made in musical heaven, and the slick combination is completely seamless. Too good! It’s timely that in our edition of funk we’ve got a new one from the dojo favorite Snakehips. As you’d expect, it’s just the right mix of soul and dance-ability to hit all the right spots and get a crowd moving as one. The feeling continues straight into this next one from LBCK, who have unleashed a theme song for an undying summer. Something about this song just screams skateboards and beaches, long nights and cool drinks, good friends and great times. It’s all feeling a bit nostalgic right now, but packaged amongst all the memories that this tune invokes is the excitement for what the next year’s season will bring. And you better believe this will be playing when that time comes around again.

Until then, there will be plenty more weeks of chill vibes like these to tide you over. Peace out.

[Synth-Pop] PHOX – 1936 (Carousel Remix)

carousel
PHOX
1936 (Carousel Remix)

Carousel have certainly made a resonant impact here at TMN over the years and continue to be an act we call upon with regularity to deliver a healthy dose of happy-dance inflamed pop music; whether it’s through their sterling original productions or pliable, John Hughes soundtrack-esque remixes. Today the highly schooled duo have taken on Phox‘s folk-pop ditty “1936″ and completely shifted perspective towards a slice of 80′s electro-pop. When listening to both tracks, it becomes even more impressive that Carousel so easily took a beautiful tune with zero electronic influence and turned in a version we would have thought was the original had we not been in the know. Their airy synths punctuate a sea of leisurely percussion, and Phox’s vocal track plays in perfect harmony to the pair’s sophisticated instrumentation, marking yet another gem added to the Carousel palate. Let’s get a little vibey on this beautiful Friday. Stream Carousel’s “1936″ remix above.

[Deep House] Higher Self ft. Lauren Mason – Ghosts (Original Mix)

Higher Self ft. Lauren Mason - Ghosts
Higher Self ft. Lauren Mason
Ghosts (Original Mix)

Spinnin’ Deep always puts out the best deep house music from a selection of very talented artists. Here we have a club banger titled “Ghosts” by Higher Self featuring vocals from Lauren Mason, and this collaboration is probably one of the best works from Spinnin’ as of late. From the vintage lo-fi piano chords to the deliberately pitchy vocals, this track is the best alternative to adrenaline and will have you headbanging until your head falls off. The highlight of the tune is the catchy hardhitting bassline that comes in for the buildup,followed by the epic drop.

Hats off to the UK producer for making a name for himself. With such highly valued production, we are excited to see more of his work in the future.

Lion Babe
Treat Me Like Fire (Snakehips Remix)

Snakehips have a unique capacity for suspending listeners in a perpetual state of summer. This morning, the UK production duo dropped some good vibes with their remix of Lion Babe‘s “Treat Me Like Fire.” This laid-back rendition adds some sunny guitar riffs, future-bounce elements and hip-hop percussion that, paired with the soulful vocals of the original and very brief cameos from Biggie Smalls and A Tribe Called Quest, make for the perfect song to wake up to. Check it and grab a free download here. Happy Friday, ninjas!

[Event Review] Kygo – Bang Bang, San Diego

Processed with VSCOcam with a4 preset

(PC: Lori Luers)

Kygo was nothing short of amazing last Saturday in San Diego. Taking topical house to Bang Bang in downtown SD, Kygo brought down the HOUSE (get it?) and gave a high energy performance on stage. The 22-year-old producer from Norway started off the night with one of his most played remixes, “I See Fire”, which immediately got the crowd pumped up and cheering in excitement. It’s hard to imagine how he managed to channel such positive energy from his music, as you see nothing but smiles across the venue.

Playing banger remix after remix, Kygo’s performance was entertaining throughout his entire set. Some notable highlights include “Cut Your Teeth” by Kyla La Grange, “Stolen Dance” by Milky Chance and “Midnight” by Coldplay. To everyone’s surprise, he even threw in unreleased material in his set, include a BANKS remix that left the crowd in awe. Being comparably slower and more mellow than other deep house music, Kygo’s tropical house showed such distinctiveness and character while being massively appealing. It is amusing to see how his music got everyone dancing their pants off and singing along to all the lyrics, even though tropical house seemed an acquired taste for club music.

To close off his set, Kygo dropped “Sexual Healing” and his remix of Ed Sheeran vs Passenger “No Diggity X Thrift Shop”, ending the night on a high note. You could tell everyone thoroughly enjoyed the music just as much as Kygo did. While his remixes undoubtedly steal everyone’s heart, we would love to see more original material and collaborations.

Following his replacement of the almighty Avicii at TomorrowWorld, Kygo continued to prove that he’s one of the frontrunners of the revival movement of house music. Being able to attract such a large following in just a year’s time says something about Kygo’s talent.

To catch the rest of his Endless Summer Tour with Kygo and friends (Amtrac and Anna Lunoe), check out the following dates:

10/12     The Fonda Theatre – Los Angeles, CA

10/14     The Beacham – Orlando, FL
