Mansions On The Moon
If you’ve been a regular reader of TMN for the past few years, months or even weeks, then there is a very likely chance that you’ve noticed our unwavering affection for L.A. alt-pop constructors Mansions on the Moon. We’ve been there in some capacity for just about every release and live performance from Ted Wendler & Co. since their inception, and as MotM is scheduled to return to Denver this Friday night at Lost Lake Lounge, we had to offer yet another chance to join us in an intimate concert setting. We’re giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky reader through our always simple and streamlined e-mail list; and if entering your electronic mail address doesn’t sound like the most difficult task, then take your shot below. We’ll be picking our winner by 12:00 p.m. (Mountain Standard Time) on the day of the show, so be sure to get your entries in sooner than later. And for those bringing your entire group of friends, or just aren’t the gambling type, Lost Lake is running a special 2 for 1 ticket special for today only. Listen to “Don’t Tell” from Mansions on the Moon above and don’t be left behind on what has been one of our most anticipated Denver of the year.
There are a few rules, of course:

Slow Down Molasses
Winter Sun (Miles Cooper Seaton Mix)
First things first – sit down, grab the fanciest headphones you own, and prepare to transcend into an unusual state of mind with Miles Cooper Seaton for the next 5 minutes. As we gain more momentum towards Winters embrace, Miles Cooper Seaton sends us into a hallucinatory state of mind after taking on the likes of Canada’s very own, Slow Down Molasses and their original track, “Summer Sun”. Seaton flips this Summer sensation into a breath of fresh air, which seemingly comes off in the literal sense after listening to this on repeat. Filled with refreshing atmospheric elements, hauntingly euphoric percussive patterns, and intoxicating reverberated vocal synths, Miles Cooper Seaton creates mental images of elusive, shape-shifting figures that float around the harmonic progression of this stunning mix. When comparing this to the original, we can’t help but point out that each version resonates something entirely different in which Seaton breaks down Slow Down Molasses’ song to its simplistic pieces and paints an ethereal portrait of a soothing Winter solstice. After deconstructing this mix and analyzing the depths at which we are taken, we applaud Miles for serving the original justice by creating a version that could be considered an original on its own. With a combination like Slow Down Molasses and Miles Cooper Seaton, we can’t help but swoon ourselves into an icy nirvana that has allowed our minds to ascend itself into a mesmerizing lucid dream. As we continue to drift along these bone-chilling frequencies, we suggest you prepare to escape for the rest of the day…or week for that matter.
Parra for Cuva
Champa (feat. Monsoonsiren)
Like a song whispered from some sort of higher power, Germany’s Parra for Cuva has crafted a piece of meditative perfection in ‘Champa’. Amidst the rush of life, music that can invoke moments of deep reflection are a treasure, and it won’t take long for your mind to be carried away by the delicate electronica flowing freely here. The mood set by the acoustic soundscape is made complete by the mystical vocals of Monsoonsiren, whose name you may recall from the iconic ODESZA track ‘Memories That You Call’. To best honor the inner purpose of this production we won’t divulge any further than that, because this is one that was made to be felt, not just heard, and the sensation certainly reaches deep.
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.
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 feat. Tove Lo
Heroes (Jai Wolf Remix)
New York-based producer Jai Wolf just released another big-time remix! Spicing up Alesso‘s “Heroes”, this rework screams Jai Wolf’s character and talents. A dreamy trap beat and synthwave elements are incorporated into the tune, further accentuating Tove Lo‘s soothing vocals. The instrumental isn’t overdone, yet it stands out because its subtle dissonance that mixes absurdly well with the rest of the track. Everything about this tune really hits the spot, resembling sounds of Odesza and other electronica acts. Hats off to Mr. Jai Wolf.
Following the success of his “Say My Name” remix, Jai Wolf is setting the bar even higher with this new release. We are very excited to see what else he has in store for us.
