[Beautiful] Flume – Never Be Like You (Crywolf Cover)

Flume - Never Be Like You (Crywolf Remix)
Crywolf
Never Be Like You (Flume Cover)

Without a doubt, it is very difficult to live up to expectations when you’re trying to rework a Flume track. Being that we religiously follow Crywolf here at TMN, it’s safe to say that the talented singer/producer slayed this cover of “Never Be Like You” and painted Crywolf all over it.

Sustained vocals and strings highlight the tune and are paired with a slower tempo than the original. Following an epic buildup, the burst of synths and Crywolf’s unique vocals definitely give the song a paradisal and majestic vibe. You’ve probably never heard anything like it, but it will sure be a breath of fresh air. Considering Crywolf being a one-man-band, the level of production here is off the charts.

Available as a free download, this cover of “Never Be Like You” is some of Crywolf’s best work to date. I mean – who wouldn’t mind getting serenaded in heaven by Crywolf?

[Electronic] Chris Siegel – This Is How EP

Chris Siegel

Most of the time when an artist releases a single, we ask ourselves, what were the other versions of the unfinished track like? Did the sound change? Well, Chris Siegel and Strehlow answered that for us with their EP This Is How. The double single project features the title track, along with a VIP that takes a turn down a completely different road.

With the original “This Is How” we get a poppy tune that is highly influenced by a tropical-infused moombahton sound. Chris Siegel and Strehlow put together a complex composition with a lot of different moving parts that couldn’t have been easy to do. They made it flow without a hitch, with the result being one incredibly smooth record. With the VIP, the producers take the track down a future bass path, but still keep some of the original vibe. It feels like a 180, but when you really listen, it’s still got that Summer time vibe to it. Collaborators on the project include Siren, Lex Allen and Christine Hoberg. We applaud everyone’s efforts in the creation of both these masterpieces that you can download for free individually. Doesn’t get much better than that.

[Deep-House] Bobby Nourmand – S I S T E R

BOBBY NOURMAND
S I S T E R

2016 is shaping up into a banner year for LA based house producer Bobby Nourmand. After taking the underground by storm with his last single “S M O K I N J O E” on The Magician’s Potion Records which recieved support from the likes of Oliver Heldens, Afrojack & Martin Garrix, back in February, Nourmand returns with a crafty slice of deep, dark club aesthetics “S I S T E R”. Using a perfectly synced vocal from one of our generation’s most notable frontmen, Billy Idol, Nourmand weaves swollen bass with sticky synth progressions and brittle guitars, which has resulted in yet another tasteful club tune destined to make its global run.

After his latest run of shows which included packed out houses at Exchange LA, The Delano Beach Club & FDR during Miami Music Week, and at Webster Hall for The Magician’s official EDC afterparty; the rest of the world has begun to take notice of Nourmand’s immensely polished production as well. Keep your eyes peeled for Bobby Nourmand’s next slate of tour dates, and listen to “Sister” above.

um..
try harder

It’s only been a few days since we announced our next Resident Artist, and we’re already bringing you a tasty exclusive from this quirky and inventive duo.

“try harder” is rife with calculated clicks, pops, razor-sharp synths, and booming bass hits, giving you all the delightfully dark vibes you’d hope for while watching a top-notch horror flick. It’s a rarity when artists can craft something that could easily be pictured in a cinematic vision, but these two have most certainly done just that.

Make sure to stay tuned over the next four weeks, because we still have plenty more exclusives to bring your way.

Even with all of the hype, you may have missed a few things, and we’ve got some highlights that you definitely need to hear. Switch up your taste a little today and show the talented folks below some love.

CAFUNÉ – Don’t You Forget

We love CAFUNÉ. After having the amazing opportunity to premiere their debut EP, Love Songs For Other People, we’ve been hooked on their pristine style of electronically tinged pop. They continue to demonstrate their mastery of the genre with “Don’t You Forget” in a positive minded approach, both lyrically and production-wise. They’ve even been given praise from Pharrell Williams himself, so, even if you haven’t heard of them yet, you will. From their amazing covers to their catchy and sweet original material, CAFUNÉ show that pop music isn’t all formulaic, and we’re lucky to get to hear them break that barrier.

Mura Masa – Lotus Eater (Tonton Remix)

Simply put, this is a stunning rendition of an already phenomenal song. Remixing Mura Masa is no small feat, and Tonton made it look effortless. The defining features of the original were kept, but this “Lotus Eater” update has skyrocketed into popularity on its own merit. Finding a way to still make your speakers go through a workout and maintaining a cool and collected sense of calm is quite the balance, but this remix handles both without fail. Keep your ears open to for more Tonton.

Anna Straker – Late Night Swimming

We’ve got even more great pop coming at you this week, and it’s here courtesy of Anna Straker. Debut tracks on SoundCloud are always great to come across, and “Late Night Swimming” continues this trend without a hitch. You can soak up the sun with this one, or cruise around with the windows down as the breeze whips around you almost in time with the song itself. Anna Straker is enchanting throughout the tune, and, even with the strong production, her voice is the anchor holding “Late Night Swimming” together. We are VERY ready for more from her.

Mishegas – Home

Building an emotional appeal with no words is something to be admired, and Mishegas‘ sophomore tune channels a similarity to artists in Foreign Family in this regard. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and let “Home” transport you into another dimension of heavenly synths, swaths of reverberating drums, and a serendipitous melody that makes you feel like everything might just be alright. We’re catching onto Mishegas early, but there’s no stopping him if more tunes like “Home” are on the way.

YOKE LORE – SAFETY

What do you get when you put a little bit of banjo into electronica? YOKE LORE. At first glance of that sentence, it may seem like a silly combination, but “SAFETY” has proven it can work, and very well at that. The group vocals chant harmoniously along with a strumming banjo, thumping kicks, and resounding synths that culminate into something extremely unique. This is one tune you’ll just have to listen to to believe. Grab their EP here!

Our Next Resident Artist is um.. [TMN RESIDENCY]

11713880_459077014263560_6635768340150438936_o

You’re probably expecting to read about who our next Resident Artist is in this first paragraph, thinking we got all cutesy with some click bait-style headline. C’mon – you should know us better than that by now. The name of our next Resident Artist is actually in the headline. That’s right – all this month we’re highlighting the delightfully weird, whacky, and dog-loving So-Cal duo um..

These two have had quite the ride since forming at Icon Collective. They first got their feet wet back in December of ’14 with their interpretation of Awe’s “Griffin.” That offering was included in LA powerhouse collective Team Supreme’s Vol. 127, which put them amongst top notch acts like Plastician, King Henry, Yung Orca, and more.

From there, um.. released their debut EP, Pay Attention, which garnered tremendous support from tastemakers, bloggers, and music lovers around the globe. In fact, the three-track collection hit #2 on the Beatport Electronica Album Chart and #12 on the Overall Album Chart. Pretty damn impressive for their first EP.

Our music has a playful feeling, while maintaining top level quality production, that’s refreshing in a time where producers take their music too seriously and sacrifice creativity for commercial sounding tracks. We are not interested in following any other artist’s path. We believe in creation without creative boundaries and we demonstrate that through our music. Without saying anything more, I think the music speaks for itself.

Ben Bruce and Dylan Gold are now looking ahead to their next EP, Do It For the Kids, which will be rolled out over the next few weeks. On top of that, we hope they’re pretty damn stoked to join the ranks of our Residency program.

Stay tuned for some rad, exclusive content throughout the next four weeks, starting on Monday. Until then, enjoy this tasty collection of some of our favorite tracks.
