Too Ill (prod. Michael Keenan)
Skizzy Mars has definitely been on top of his game lately. After releasing the much heralded Phases nearly a year ago, Skiz had a relatively quiet 2013. While it’s easy to forget about artists during their brief lulls, we know Skiz spent his time in the lab wisely, waiting to return with a vengeance. Well, Skizzy Season is officially upon us now, as the 20 year old emcee has teamed up with producer Michael Keenan to string together a slew of smooth releases over the last few weeks.
His latest entry in that series, “Too Ill,” definitely lives up to its billing. Sampling the Snakehips remix of BANKS‘ “Warm Water,” (still one of our favorites at TMN), “Too Ill” features the NYC native playing to his strengths, utilizing his carefree, charismatic flow to weave together an intriguing narrative, while showcasing his penchant for crafting catchy hooks. Skizzy’s upcoming mixtape, Pace, is set to drop next week on March 4th, and we can’t wait to hear what else he has in store for us.
Alright, ninjas. We’ve been hooking you up with free entry to Beta over the past year. We know you’ve have some epic times, catching some of the most legendary talent EDM has to offer, and we’re on board to keep this thing going. So, we’re once again giving you an opportunity to check out the best night club in North America for free. What all do you have to do to get in? It’s pretty damn easy. Just follow these steps:

THREE @ SUP3RFR3Q WAREHOUSE :: DALLAS TEXAS :: OCT 2011
There certainly hasn’t been any shortage of quality music emanating out of Denver as of late and we can chalk up another two polished electronic compositions to that consistent stream of superfluity. Savvy beatsmith MOSIS was the latest artist to catch our eye from the Western U.S.’ electronic landscape (or ears for that matter), especially behind his latest sonic architectural achievement “You&Me”, which was self-released just last week. Exploiting elements from house and garage, hip-hop, and all things ending in “step”, “You&Me” strikes a chord amongst every side of this writer’s electronic listening scale in the most beautiful of ways. That same gift of fusion has simultaneously been the catalyst behind a diverse production index and live shows supporting artists as polar as Disclosure, Lapalux, option4, Tourist, Daedelus, Nosaj Thing and a host of more influential musicians within the dance panorama. If any rising artist deserves a bit of crate-digging from their new fans right this second, we’ll gladly point you the way of MOSIS.
Not ones to sell ourselves short here at TMN, we’re also excited to be dropping the official remix from yet another monster Denver group: Two Fresh. The low-end leaning twins usher “You&Me” in another stimulating direction entirely. Whereas MOSIS’ original lends itself to blissful spaced-out dancefloor or listening vibes, Two Fresh’s revision gets us all hot and bothered; rather inducing the need to grind and twerk to their gluey, wonked out bass line. Both tracks more than have us stoked today, and you can bet our gaze has been fixated towards the “thick” mountain air over there for more tunes in the near future. Check out both tracks below, and take home a free digital copy of MOSIS’ original track here.
You & Me (Two Fresh Remix)
Best Day Of My Life (Gazzo Radio Edit)
Get your feels ready. New Jersey native Gazzo has dialed up an inspiring vocal house remix of the ever-so-popular American Authors tune “Best Day of My Life.”
Just in time for festival season, we’re offered up an energetic take on one of the hottest set of lyrics out there. While some of you may scoff and say they’re cheesy, we know you’re secretly singing them in your head. It’s okay. You can appreciate a catchy hook without being lame.
Given the natural uplifting nature of this song as a whole, adding some piano keys and spiraling synths were only a natural progression in this song’s ascension. We’d like to offer a sincere thank you to Gazzo for giving us the perfect tune to play at our Coachella pool party.
Real Slow (Avenue Remix)
All day today we’ve been hearing songs that make us long for summer. Beatsmith Torotonian Avenue has just made us look out the window with added disgust with his latest remix; a lovely trop-house remix of Miami Horror’s “Real Slow.”
Sporting a funky bassline and some island style synths, Avenue has taken this beach-ready tune and created something that should be played far and wide at WMC. While the original piano melody is still apparent, it’s not the hero of the song as it was in the original. This tune is much more dance-centric, harnessing lush kicks and clicking percussion.
If you’re feeling down about the weather, throw on a Hawaiian shirt and play this bad boy. You won’t be able to avoid the warm weather vibes.
Somewhere between the lines of lush, gorgeous ambient electronica, bass-heavy dance music and avant-garde hip hop lies Golden Features. This up-and-coming producer Aussie just dropped this four track EP and it’s chock full of deep house goodness.
Our favorite of the four was definitely “Tell Me,” which has a melodically focused vocal vocal deep house vibe, featuring verbose, cavernous bass hits that slowly bounce across bass kicks and wavering synths. It’s not an energetic big room track by any way, shape or means, but it has a nice driving tempo that’s backed with some accentuating piano keys, which will create plenty of energy at your next house party or trip to the club.
The other three tracks range in originality, some even displaying perfect characteristics for a smooth MC to drop some lyrics over. Take a gander at all four, and lost in the depth of Golden Feature’s artistry.
