As we wind down our month-long spotlight on Danish-born producer Galimatias, we’ve arrived on the portion most people have highlighted in their calendar. While we personally look forward to every piece of content our Resident Artist dials up with us, we know most people like to get their hands and ears on some exclusive music, which is exactly what we have for you today.
It’s been a full year since Galimatias put out his last Voyage Mix, and we’re sure a lot of you have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of only his third public mix. Well, today is your day.

For all the James Blake fans out there, this one is a must-listen. Originally from Tel Aviv, singer/producer O Mer absolutely knocks his latest release, “Now I’m Alive,” out of the ball park. Fusing electronic music with Middle Eastern influences, he creates a unique tune that puts the listener on an emotional roller coaster. Vocal harmonies are used to start off the track, paired with minimalist drums. The booming synth at the beat drop sends everything into action, which puts together a series of different sounds for one giant eargasm.
We would like to think this is O Mer’s biggest track to date. With this level of talent and production skills, the now Brooklyn-based producer won’t just stop here. He’s definitely an artist to watch right now.
We’re kicking off Dojo #155 with some nu-disco action courtesy of Plastic Plates and his funky brand of feel good vibes. After being renowned for his own remix work, it’s only fitting that Oliver Nelson’s first original track receives a similar treatment of smooth elevation we’re used to hearing him dish out himself. ‘Found Your Love’ was already one of our favorite jams of 2015, and this summer-filled flip is a timely reminder that this year still has plenty of gold to discover before it’s done. Another producer who keeps reminding us of that fact is the ever-reliable jackLNDN, his latest EP Summer Never Ends Vol. 2 a testament to the endless stream of amazing tunes we discover every week. We’ve featured two tracks of this very nature from the release, ‘Hit Refresh’ carrying his signature polished groove, while ‘Streams’ travels down a more soulful jazzy route that is a delightful deviation from his usual style.
After a bit of a hiatus, Swiss producer Insan3Lik3 has returned to explore the future bass space, combining with Creepa to concoct a melodic yet restrained sound that has us keen to hear more artistic experimentation like this. No matter the quality of tools at their disposal, there is always going to be magic made when friends collaborate, and that’s exactly what j.roosevelt and Lea Beiley have proven with their stunning mellow single ‘Subtract & Divide’. We’re all about those bedroom gems that only take a little bit of polish to really shine, and boy do those vocals glisten in the light of those glorious keys. That’s not the only partnership we want to hero from the week either, with Kidswaste and Lolaby revealing an emotion-filled EP in the works, heralded by the beautiful ‘Make U Mine’. There is purity in the feelings that went into crafting this song, and it’s a simple message to be shared with the one you hold them for.
As for the rest of this playlist, that’s our message to you. Peace out.

Miradors (Lane 8 Remix)
Lane 8‘s debut album Rise has proven one of our favorites of the year–a lush, cohesive collection of house/trance music. The broad range of features on the project helped it stand out further bolstering an already irresistible sound. His collaborations with UK duo Solomon Grey, also regulars on the pages of TMN, were perhaps the most potent. To return the favor, Lane 8 crafted a remix of Solomon Grey’s hit “Miradors” and it’s a nearly ten minute deep house masterpiece. Those who’ve caught any of Lane 8’s recent shows may recognize this blissful joint, which is yet another display of versatility from the talented producer. Get lost in this one above–it’s available now as part of Solomon Grey’s 3D1T remix EP.
PS If you dig Lane 8 as much as we do, make sure to check out our exclusive interview.
At All (ft. Veronika Redd)
It’s been a little while since we last heard the combination of Ark Patrol’s captivating brand of electronica together with the sophisticated vocals of Veronika Redd, but with the impending release of his latest album Primo we’ve been given another taste of what creativity their collaborations can conjure. They last teamed up for the soulful mellow single ‘Let Go’ back in April, but the Hawaiian-born producer has promised a more experimental approach to the upcoming album, and this song is a good indication of the diversity he will bring to his sound. A plodding beat sets the stage for Veronika’s profound lyrical work, with layers of curious soundscape interwoven throughout. While this formula carries through for the first half of the track, the intensity rises thereafter with his signature pulsating synths providing a driving force behind her words. Together it makes for a powerful piece of music that sets the tone for what to expect once the full album drops on the 20th of this month.

With a veritable slew of carefully crafted, tasteful dance music released just in the last year, it’s pretty easy to see why Kayper has garnered artist support from the likes of The Magician and Blonde, and become one of the hottest properties in club land in the process. We last checked in with the London-bred house slinger on the heels of her Terminal EP released on the rapidly ascending Eton Messy Records, and today she’s back with brand new single “Next Lifetime”. A remix of sorts of Erykah Badu’s congruently named single, “Next Lifetime” rolls out to a spacy trot before delving into a chunky yet meticulous groove that’s been earwormed to us since first listen. It’s not every day a turntablist who’s been in the game over 5 years (check out some of her oldest mixes if you haven’t yet) successfully transitions into full-blown artist with such grace and fluidity, but we’ve quickly learned Kayper may be the exception to many a rule.
About Kayper’s newest record, she remarks: “I heard someone playing Erykah Badu’s “Next Lifetime” in their car at the traffic lights while I was driving through Brixton one day and it reminded me of how much I loved that track and her first album which is what inspired me to do my own updated version as a tribute to one of my favorite artists.” It’s safe to say we think she made a great choice in carrying out this latest tune.
