[Nu-Disco/House] Birdee – Tornera’ Il Sole [TMN Premiere]

Tornera' Il Sole

Marcello De Angelis has toiled within dance music production for over the last decade; accruing loads of accolades and choice support along the way. From Laidback Luke to Congorock, a deal with Fatboy Slim’s Southern Fried Records and regular play on BBC Radio 1, Angelis’ Birdee project has been a conduit for some of electronic music’s most notable tastemakers to rally behind -and for completely good reason. Birdee’s latest single “Tornera’ Il Sole” rides a rare and sought after crossover playability; with a high-energy feel that could find a home on dance music’s biggest stages or festivals, but with a slick nu-disco fueled bass and synth line that could easily be pitched down to fit into any underground disko or house set. “Tornera’ Il Sole”, with its chunky but dashing  groove was the perfect track to drag this writer out of bed this morning, and for our dance enthusiasts, we think you’ll absolutely agree. Grab the free download from Birdee’s Soundcloud here, and stream the tune before anyone else above.

Odesza – It’s Only feat. Zyra (Free n Losh Remix) [TMN PREMIERE]


As we start to dive deeper into the season, we can’t help but crave our favorite blankets, a nice warm cup of hot cocoa, and some soothing tunes to make the chilly weather that much more enjoyable. Since entering this subtle mindset, we noticed that our taste in music has started to digress to a more down-tempo vibe to match the low temperatures ahead. For some people, this might be a sign that festival season is over and it’s time to turn down for relaxation for the next few months, so that’s exactly what the ninjas have been doing. Helping us get to this serene state of mind is Toronto’s very own Free n Losh. The Canadian duo are notorious for their flawless work and we’ve become quite the fans of their music. Now that we have spent some quality time listening to their refreshing sounds, it’s time for us to obsess over something entirely new and vibey from the duo.

Today we are excited to share with you the latest from Free n Losh and their stunning remix of Odesza’s “It’s Only”, which features the sensational vocals from Zyra. When it comes to Odesza, we here at TMN have the utmost respect for these guys and the artistry that they resonate in their unique productions. Free n Losh decided to slow things down a bit with their take on “It’s Only” by throwing in charming electronic piano melodies, enchanting guitar riffs, and a sensual saxophone synth breakdown that will instantly send you into a peaceful state of mind. Free n Losh captured our attention from start to finish and that alone is a feat within itself. Their impressive sound design and unique approach to projects is reflected in their very work and today is no different. These two have given us the ideal remedy to drown out those horrible Monday sorrows and sink into a melting pot of pure ecstasy. We are pleased to premiere this movinga track with all of you ninjas today, so make sure to press play and let these delectable frequencies help guide you through the rest of your week.

The Chill Dojo #108

chill dojo

It seems like not a week goes by without our minds being blown by the talent of Lido. This time, it’s not the exciting future bass style that has us hooked, but an entirely different minimalistic approach that could only be described as beautiful. Relying solely on delicate textures and the emotion of the original lyrics, this is surely one of the biggest remixes of ‘Two Bodies’ without any exorbitant noise. It’s as pure as it gets, and the perfect way to set the mood. Alas, we’re switching things up straight away with a feel-good jam courtesy of a Dojo newcomer in Melvv. As much as we love raw emotion, we’re also suckers for a happy melody and addictive house groove, and that’s exactly what ‘Glide’ has to offer. Much like its name suggests, this one will elevate your day like wind beneath your sails. The perfect pick-me-up for when you need it most. In much the same way, funk-master Gigamesh has breathed new life into this Soul II Soul classic with an infectious remix layered with bouncy vibes and a silky finesse that will prove too irresistible for your body to handle. Disco definitely ain’t dead, that’s for sure.

Meanwhile, tropical house is very much in it’s heyday, and Matoma is one of the artists flying the flag and continuing to push its popularity further. Assisting his cause is another hot mashup of vintage hip hop and that new sound that the world cannot get enough of right now. Add to that his signature sax
lead and it’s another certified winner for the rising Norwegian. This next combination needs no assistance in describing its greatness, because when you see the names Penguin Prison and Viceroy in the same track, you already know you’re in store for something special. This remix of ‘Calling Out’ retains its pop roots, but receives an electric boost from the summer-ready attitude of the season’s greatest advocate. Everything about this track radiates the summertime feeling we wish we could hold onto all year long. We conclude this write-up in the same way we started, with a favorite artist delivering something amazing out of left-field. Also well known for their futuristic tendencies, the mystical twins Cosmo’s Midnight have instead wowed us with a deep lyrical tune that’s saturated in good vibes and hypnotic groove. In an unprecedented fashion, they’ve concocted their most enchanting potion to date, and we’ll gladly drink the whole thing knowing full well its addictive tendencies.

It was certainly a week of surprises, but that’s exactly why we love putting this playlist together. Peace out.

[Future] FEKI – Safe Return

Safe Return

The homies over at alaya just seem to keep putting out some serious fire these days. With a surge of collectives forming each and every day, we find ourselves diving head first into a sea of rising talent and alaya is a collective that we’ve been keeping a sharp eye on. One such artist that keeps us on our toes is Brisbane, Australia’s very own FEKI. This young producer continues to be a driving force in the music industry in which he creates some seriously clean beats full of eclectic elements, smooth transitions, and unique percussive patterns. Just recently, Feki released his latest wonder, “Safe Return” and took us to the land of sensual synths, vibe-enhanced melodies, and flawless drum patterns to which we haven’t quite returned from. Within this gem of a track are pitched samples from the well-known Mark Morrison track, “Return of the Mack”, that add the perfect touch to this smooth piece of production. We can’t wait to see what else FEKI and our friends over at alaya have in store for us in the future. If it’s anything like “Safe Return” we guarantee the world won’t be able to handle the future of music.

Heroes (Jai Wolf Remix)

New York-based producer Jai Wolf just released another big-time remix! Spicing up Alesso‘s “Heroes”, this rework screams Jai Wolf’s character and talents. A dreamy trap beat and synthwave elements are incorporated into the tune, further accentuating Tove Lo‘s soothing vocals. The instrumental isn’t overdone, yet it stands out because its subtle dissonance that mixes absurdly well with the rest of the track. Everything about this tune really hits the spot, resembling sounds of Odesza and other electronica acts. Hats off to Mr. Jai Wolf.

Following the success of his “Say My Name” remix, Jai Wolf is setting the bar even higher with this new release. We are very excited to see what else he has in store for us.

[Future Bass] Oh Wonder – Body Gold (Louis The Child Remix)

Oh Wonder
Body Gold (Louis The Child Remix)

If it hasn’t become apparent by now, we here at TMN have become totally enamored by the ever elusive duo, Oh Wonder. After having stumbled upon them by sheer luck, we knew it was only a matter of time before the two took the world by their haunting melodies and sucked us into a vortex of pure euphoria. Since their internet take over, producers from all around have been lining up to share their interpretations of Oh Wonder’s enchanting pieces but have failed to get our attention. After listening to way too many mundane, unoriginal renditions, we felt as if no one on this planet would have the balls to give us something refreshing or unique to change our minds. Well, tonight might be the night where we can have a change in heart because we just so happened to get our hands on a phenomenal remix of “Body Gold” by the underage duo, Louis The Child. Since receiving this in our email, we have listened to this at least 30 times and still haven’t gone insane.

This Future Bass take on “Body Gold” gives us a sort of sexual tension that effortlessly builds up into the ultimate release of a lifetime. Filled with a subtle amount of atmospheric elements, a wobbly synth breakdown, and a soothing percussive flow, Louis The Child made us realize that someone could re-work the glory of Oh Wonder and take us to places unimaginable. Their remix makes us feel as if we are running across a field of flowers and fairies are dancing around us, sprinkling pixie dust and love all over the place. Also, we should say that there may or may not be unicorns in this fictitious scenario so prepare for the best imagery you’ve ever had.All in all, there really is no place we’d rather be than where we are right now – even if it is at the library at almost 9 o’clock at night. This one is going to be on repeat for the rest of the week, so escape to paradise with this one and make sure to grab your free download in the mean time.
