The Friday feels are certainly alive and real with this one. Returning with his first single in over a month, Dolphin Tears has decided to bless us with yet another eccentric, R&B-infused jersey club anthem. This time drawing inspiration from T-Pain‘s “Buy U A Drank,” delivers quite the banger, packed with plenty of synths, pulsating percussion, video game samples, bed squeaks and of course his signature dolphin calls. We won’t judge you if you suddenly feel an uncontrollable urge to get up out of your seat and shake your tailfeather (is that a dated term now?), because that’s exactly what we did. Do you know how hard it is to type while dancing? Why not press play on this gem and try it out for yourself?

Shudder (Twinztrack Remix)
If you haven’t realized it yet, we here at TMN have been infatuated with Basecamp‘s “Shudder” from the very first moment it first blessed our ears early last month. Not only have we found ourselves zoning out to the original on a regular basis, but the countless remixes that have followed have captured our constant attention as well. Now French electronic duo Twinztrack have decided to throw their hats in the ring, providing us with yet another fascinating remix. This latest rendition finds the hypnotic vocals from the original embedded in a swirling palette of engrossing synths and skittering percussion that help add a playfully melodic touch to the tune. Remember that zoning out sensation we mentioned earlier? Yeah, try resisting it from the moment you press play. We promise it’s not possible. This is a song that will most definitely captivate you.
There’s no word on whether this will be available for download or purchase in the near future, but we won’t blame you for immediately wanting a copy for yourself.
Break Up To Make Up (WYLN Edit)
More often than not, us ninjas tend to have a general understanding of how to classify songs based on their style, sound, as well as our knowledge behind each genre – after all, we are tastemakers so we should know what goes where! However, sometimes we face a challenge with certain songs in which it can get a bit difficult placing them exactly where they belong. That’s what happened to us when we came across this adorable edit of Jeremih’s “Break Up To Make Up”. We already go bananas over the original track as is, but WYLN just took this song to an entirely new level of cute. We know…most producers probably don’t want to have their music be described as “cute”, but hey, as a ninjette with a heart, this edit hits a girl straight in her soft spot every single time. With all the intricate drum patterns, the fluffy synthesized melodies, and Jeremih’s adorable young voice layered on top of this lovely production, WYLN gives this track a solid re-work that will entice all who listen. So while you get ready to break up to make up, make sure to grab your free download while in the mean time – you’ll want this track for later.
MAC MILLER ft RICK ROSS
INSOMNIAK(JayCeeOh & HIDEthenSEEK Remix)(OFFICIAL)
Already one of our favorite tracks from his mixtape Faces, Mac Miller‘s “Insomniak” just received the remix treatment from JayCeeOh and HIDEthenSEEK, and let’s just say you won’t want to sleep on this one. Turning things up a notch (or even a few), the talented producers give the previously hypnotic single a total facelift, mutating it into an absolute banger. Imbuing the track with warbling synths and plenty of bass, this remix is bound to keep you up all night and transform you into a genuine “Insomniak.” We suggest you hit the download button above and keep this one on deck all weekend for any and all planned shenanigans.
James Vincent McMorrow
Glacier (Atu Remix)
Another super talented artist under Soulection Atu recently released this remix of a James Vincent McMorrow song titled “Glacier”, and as it came to no surprise to us, it became another instant classic. Moving away from the usual indie folk elements, the original is more of a soulful vocal magnum opus. Atu changes the scene of the tune by creating R&B ticks and chillwave beats ad putting them with the vocals of Mr. McMorrow. It takes you on a journey through Atu’s dream filled with chill-out vibes. This here is one of those songs that leave you pondering life and whatnot.
With such high production value, this tune is the epitome of Atu’s work. He always manages to pick the most suitable tracks to remix with. While we would love to see more of his musical diversity, there is no doubt he is one of the best in doing what he’s doing.
Sleepless (Prince Fox & Jenaux Remix)
Whenever we come across artists who continuously blow our minds with their uncanny abilities to create some of the most feel good music out there, we can’t help but fan-girl when such artists decide to team up and combine their styles of music. A couple of weeks ago, a TMN newbie, Jenaux, and a TMN regular, Prince Fox, surprised us all with a stunning remix of the oh so familiar Cazzette track, “Sleepless”. After obsessing over his Panama Wedding “Uma” remix, we knew that Jenaux’s Progressive House background and Prince Fox’s eclectic style of production would ultimately shut down the internet for the evening. With no surprise at all, these two fused together both Progressive and Future Bass elements to send us soaring in this “Sleepless” remix. Loaded with poppy melodies, uplifting builds, and mainstage worthy breakdowns, Jenaux and Prince Fox could not have made a more perfect team. The response they’ve gotten thus far just means that we need to see them work on more tracks together. *Hint Hint*
Inferno ft. Lizzy Plapinger of MS MR
The up and coming indie group Sir Sly is making a name for themselves by establishing a unique electronic sound in their short career so far. They released a track titled “Inferno” and it’s a collaboration with the female lead singer of the exciting group MS MR.
In this genre of alternative music, Sir Sly is definitely one of the frontrunners on the list, with names like Florence and the Machine, Little Daylight, HAIM, etc. This one here is a little different from their usual work, a little faster and a little more playful. With their signature bass-driven instrumentals, the catchy melody of the song is fueled by Lizzy Plapinger’s vocals. The intro riff adds a mysterious and adventurous feel to the entire song. The two singers harmonize exceptionally well in the chorus, making it a memorable tune.
This recent release is a sneak peek of Sir Sly’s debut album You Haunt Me, which is available on September 16. Make sure you don’t miss it because this one is a must have!
