[Electronic Soul] Tom Misch – Crazy Dream

Tom Misch is the epitome of cool. We don’t mean the contrived and aloof kind of cool, but the calm and collected type that can create some of the smoothest music out right now. “Crazy Dream” explores the hip-hop side of Tom’s production, allowing for Loyle Carner to fire off his effortless verses between catchy choruses.

Not only is this song another solid release in a long list of great Tom Misch creations, but it also is the second single off of his upcoming Reverie EP that’s due out on July 15th. It goes without saying that we’re eagerly awaiting the rest of this project and will be repeatedly enjoying “Crazy Dream” until then. Finish off your day right with this slick track.

[R&B/Soul] R.LUM.R – Frustrated

Something about R.LUM.R is just so relatable. The world of R&B and soul is filled to the brim with all sorts of differing messages, ranging from love to lust, political to protest, and many more. “Frustrated” touches on the effects of heartbreak through its compelling production and blunt lyrics.

One line in particular says it all:

I’m not alright, right now. I’ve never been the type that you can just abuse

R.LUM.R has no issues with expressing his exact feelings here. The emotion is clear, and the resounding instrumentation is an essential counterpart to getting his point across. There’s a striking similarity to Gallant on this tune, which actually marks a change in pace for R.LUM.R that pushes his singing range into another level that some of his previous tunes haven’t. “Frustrated” is monumental in his progression as a singer and artist, and we’re hope to hear a lot more from R.LUM.R.

Caden Jester ft. Christopher Blake – Slow [TMN PREMIERE]

Here in TMN, we strive to discover music that turns heads but is also outcast to genres. This gem by Caden Jester is the perfect example of that.

“Slow” is an infectious tune that explores elements from R&B and soul to future bass without them overshadowing one another. The vocals by Christopher Blake are powerful and add a nice R&B touch to the melody. Slow-paced drums and a groovy bassline bring out the downtempo vibe of the track up until the drop, which combines casual wavy synths and a more upbeat approach. Whichever genre you fancy, it would be very difficult to not vibe to this lovely tune.

Being that Caden is only 18 years old, it is amazing how he came to familiarize with all these different genres and is able to combine them and give his own spin to create an original track. With the release of “Slow”, it is safe to say we’ve found our next favorite producer to religiously follow.

O R I O N – Gold Dust ft. Cammie Robinson

This song is from a little while ago, but it was new to us and instantly caught our ears. O R I O N put together a beautiful brain-melter with “Gold Dust”, and the sparse, but angelic vocals of Cammie Robinson are the icing on the cake. The innate feeling of escapism creeps out throughout the tune, and you’ll want to go explore the world as it plays. Enjoy this one on a bright and day. You’ll feel absolutely wonderful.

SWIMS – Bedrooms

SWIMS is an exciting new duo that combines the best of trap, R&B, and electronic music into a breezy and ethereal creation. Optimized for complete relaxation, “Bedrooms” stands as a strong debut for these two. It’s a serenade with all the right trappings. It hits all the right spots. Soak this one in with a special someone tonight.

midnight – Native America (feat. The Internet)

The combination of midnight and The Internet is impossible to be apathetic about. Touching on the marred past of the United States, these talented people describe the constant push for the best life available in a seductive fashion that gives the message a new appearance. We’ve been hooked on midnight ever since his XXI Labors EP, and seeing him work with The Internet to deliver such a powerful message only solidifies our admiration of his work. Find some time to really sit and reflect on these lyrics.

Goldlink – Unique (Louis Futon Remix)

This one is simply fun. That’s no surprise, coming from Louis Futon. He decided to return to his earlier remix roots by flipping this Goldlink and Anderson Paak original into absolutely irresistible scorcher of a dance tune. We’re not even sure what the best part of it is, but there is one thing we know for sure. It’s ALL great. Kick off the shift into warm weather with this one.

The Geek x Vrv – Coming Up’ Feat Kellylee Evans & Atom

So much soul. The Geek x Vrv never fails to bring out the best funk, hip-hop, and soul crossovers with their material, and “Coming Up” is a vibrant new addition to their stellar sound. Featuring a fourth of C2C and the striking singing of Kellylee Evans, this song triumphs on its 90s rap atmosphere and style that’s revamped and repurposed into a more modern sound. You can’t NOT bob your head. We’re making sure to keep the double negative there just so you know we MEAN it. Throw this tune on when you just want to groove.

[Electronic] MODEL 86 – MONO

MODEL 86 is an intriguing new artist on our radar. His latest track is called, “Mono” and sees the London-based producer blends hip-hop, electronic and world elements effortlessly. This makes for an extremely dynamic listen.

After playing through this one, you might wish you had discovered MODEL 86 sooner. Going back through his catalog, we’re really feeling his other releases as well. Peep this electronic song Holdin’ from a month ago for another taste of the MODEL 86 sound.

But “MONO” is the latest greatest and it might be the perfect out-there addition to your music rotation. There are some cool pitch-bend vocal samples, but hopefully we’ll get to hear a rapper on it at some point too. A few wild bars would really top this one off. If you like the beat, you will want to keep an eye on MODEL 86.
