Lemme (Original)

After being introduced to the Deep House duo, BiPolar theory (consisting of Whyel and JDefeats), we instantly got hit with the boogie fever to which we experienced some serious third degree burns from their tunes. Since their debut EP release and their sensational remix of Disclosures “Latch”, we have been anxiously awaiting for these two to come back with some heat for us to share with the world. Well ninjas, today is the Monday of all Mondays because we are excited to share with you the latest original from BiPolar Theory that will 100% take you so deep that DJ Hanzel would be put to shame. In fact, we had to give this one a listen a few times because these two definitely took their underground game to an entirely new level of funky.

Filled with sizzling build ups, sharp and choppy synth breakdowns, and heaps of pitched down one liners, BiPolar gives us a delectable taste of some good, traditional sounding House music. “Lemme” is the type of song that will naturally make your body move effortlessly across the dance floor, almost as if the sound gods themselves are guiding you through a rhythmic tunnel of divine frequencies. Talk about an experience if you ask us. “Lemme” is available for free download viz Panda Funk Records so make sure to grab this one while it’s sizzling hot because there’s no way you’ll be able to listen to this one just once.

[Synth-Pop] Lincoln Jesser – Golden

Golden

Lincoln Jesser has been quietly enticing much of the staff here at TMN over the course of the past few years. From singles steeped in supremely catchy, thought out production structures to a cohesive and accessible debut LP, Modern Color; it’s safe to say we’ve carved out a bit of a soft spot for the So-Cal synth modulator. As a result, every time we’re sent a new lush pop composition from LJ, it more than piques our interest and never fails to deliver an earful of sonic beauty. “Golden”, Jesser’s latest tune finds the young producer in one of the most enlightened stretches of a brief music career, with Jesser’s crooning vocals sounding more polished and directed than ever before -even amongst a deft amount splicing, chopping, and layering. Musically, “Golden” borrows tonality from a multitude of unexpected genres; a swelling, pitched down bass line offers shades of U.K. jack and club-house while a rich, warm pop base lacquers the movement with more than enough unique accessibility to shine amongst what has become an influx of  a formulaic avalanche’s worth of stabs at the revivalist genre. One thing this writer has always associated with Jesser has been: “refreshing”. And that’s once again how “Golden” lays on our palate.

Kavinsky – Nightcall (Ardency Remix) [TMN PREMIERE]

Nightcall (Ardency Remix)

As we struggle to hit our snooze button for the eleventh time this morning, we can’t help but close our eyes and sigh at the daunting fact that today is only Tuesday and we are as far away possible from the weekend. Knowing that we still have 3 days of monotony to endure makes us really want to pull the sheets over our head and ignore all of our adult responsibilities for the rest of the day. We here at TMN often find ourselves in this state of mind, however, we tend to remedy these heavy eyelids with some soothing music to refresh our negative mindsets into a more optimistic lime light. Helping lift our spirits and carry us through this mundane day are electronic duo, Ardency and their euphoric remix of Kanvinsky’s famous song, “Nightcall”. Through their emotive approach to this track, they successfully re-worked this wonder into something truly ethereal.

Ardency mentions to us that “this song is simple but thought out and meaningful. Every part of it was made to convey the brooding emotion of Kavinsky’s character. We wanted to stay true to our style while making a remix that did the original justice. Ultimately, the goal of our music is to stimulate emotion within our listeners; we want to make people feel.”

Filled with elongated notes of pure divinity, powerful percussive elements that burst with emotion, and mystical, melodic builds that lead up to a beautiful release, Ardency turns this Kavinsky classic into a memorable piece of art that will swoon you for all eternity. As we await the drop of their upcoming Gradience EP (out next month via Prep School Recordings), Ardency is releasing their “Nightcall” remix for free so we can have something to sit on until then. We can’t wait to hear what’s up their sleeve next, but for now we will just utilize the repeat button until further notice.

God's Whisper (La'Reda Remix)

La’Reda, an LA-based duo made up of two established musicians in Brion Charles and Nathan Barbour, came out with a unique edit of Atlanta-based artist Raury‘s “God’s Whisper” yesterday totally spicing things up and adding their own twist. This rework features a subtle deep-house beat and a chilled out vibe that fully consumes your attention. The original voice samples are incorporated cleverly into the mix. The hollow synths used in the breakdown towards the end of the song fit perfectly with Raury’s powerful vocals. It’s complex and deep without being overdone.

Free download of the song is available here–make sure to check out La’Reda’s Soundcloud for more deep house goodness!

EXROYALE – Lovesick Youth [TMN PREMIERE]

Lovesick Youth

Aside from the weekend, Tuesday has to be our favorite day of the week. There’s just something about the throngs of new music bring released that really makes this day stand apart from any other weekday. Today, we’re kicking things off with a bang, thanks to Portland artist/producer EXROYALE.

Josh Schroeder (EXROYALE) has already had a busy year, producing singles for the ever-so-soulful JMR and newcomer Áine Aura. On top of which, he’s dropped five remixes and three singles of his own. We’ve had the ultimate pleasure of watching this artist through the years, and it has been tremendous to see the growth in musical exploration, which shines bright in “Lovesick Youth.”

This premiere has a shimmering electro pop glimmer to it, riding happily along a booming bassline and wavering, distorted guitar. Shroeder’s vocals, which we’ve come to adore over the years, create an enveloping experience with lyrics that we’re having trouble shaking after just one listen. Expertly accompanying the glowing pop cadence, the end result is one hell of a catchy tune, which is available as a free download on his Soundcloud.

[Minimal-Bass] Primal Intent – Bar In Every Room

PRIMAL INTENT
Bar In Every Room

It’s clear that South African producer Martin Folb maintains an astute and forward thinking grasp on electronic production that other artists could only dream of. From his inspiring work with PANTyRAID and multi-faceted MartyParty solo project, Folb has put forth quite the diverse library of music over the years. Yet Primal Intent, his newest collaboration with Miami bred Paul Gorman, sees a paradigm shift into the world of more club driven beats, and away from the more expansive, glitch wielding tunes which have been attached to the MartyParty & PANTyRAID brands. The duo’s first single, “Bar In Every Room” delves within a multitude of styles from minimal techno, soul, and all permutations of the prefix before “-step”. We’re bounced back and forth between layered two-step melody,pounding four-four bass and hip-hop infused claps; giving off an ambience somewhere between Berghain’s darkest techno parties and a straightforward trap banger. Primal Intent’s debut self-titled LP is set to be released tomorrow, November 18th, on iTunes so before then, get your fix with “Bar In Every Room” above.

Alesso
Heroes (feat. Tove Lo) (Branchez Remix)

New York producer, Branchez, knows how to put together a hell of a remix. Today, the man behind an enormous re-work of What So Not‘s ”High You Are,” brings us another massive tune. Taking on Alesso‘s “Heroes,” Branchez kicks things off looping an ethereal sample of Tove Lo‘s vocals from the original before building up an addicting high-pitched synth. The song erupts magnificently a little past the 1 minute mark as the layers collide and the melody takes a mesmerizing, pitch-bending turn.

Branchez has been playing this one in his live sets for a while now and it’s easy to see why as it truly captures the uniquely gorgeous qualities of his music. If you’re digging this one, you won’t want to sleep on his original productions either–“Truth” was one of our favorite songs this year.
