New Dorp, New York feat. Ezra Koenig
Since the release of his self-titled debut album in 2011, SBTRKT‘s follow-up project has consistently been one of the most anticipated records in music. Today, almost exactly three years later, the acclaimed UK producer finally let loose the first single from the long-awaited project. “New Dorp, New York” departs from the lush synths and drum ‘n bass percussion fans have become accustomed to in favor of a far more avant-garde feel. With some help from Ezra Koenig, of Vampire Weekend, SBTRKT creates a sort of tribal groove continuing his experimentation and combination of sounds. Give this one a spin above and rejoice that SBTRKT’s sophomore effort, Wonder Where We Land, is on the way.
If you’re anything like us, you’ve been slowly sifting through an endless sea of minutia and manure today. Whatever industry you’re in, we’re sure you have you slow, building frustrations, and those frustrations need to be addressed properly.
Rather than going on a regretful twitter rant, we suggest you calmly press play, and get lost, if only for seven minutes. Taking a crack at Brooklyn based Komodo’s tune “Orange Ocean,” Loscil has dialed up an interpretation worthy of your deepest dreamscapes. Taking a piano-centric approach to the melody, this Vancouver-based musician will easily take you out of whatever stresses have been ailing you today.
This tune is off of the upcoming Pattern and Light LP, due out July 22nd.
Keep Your Mouth For Lying (cln Remix)
The science of physics and chemistry teaches that the liberation of energy comes in both thermal and nuclear forms, and perhaps many others had I paid more attention in class. Yet, nothing is more equipped at transforming the little bit of kinetic energy left after along ass day than the exothermic properties of listening to music. The already exquisitely relaxing track “Keep Your Mouth For Lying” by Australian electronic trio Crooked Colours has now been rebranded as a bedroom lullaby by Callan Alexander, better known as, cln.
Not to take away from the efforts of cln, who in this project is blessed to work with the controlled and emotionally rooted vocals of frontman Philip Slabber, but it is Slabber’s ability to induce empathy that gives the track such resonance. Between welcome vocal loops and stripped instrumentals, the Aussie producer captures a side to the track, that if we take out its inherent scientific factor, can only be described as heavenly.
“Keep Your Mouth For Lying” is taken from the ‘In Your Bones’ EP available through iTunes.
You made it. It’s now officially Monday night, and you’re one day closer to Friday. With that being said, it’s important to take some time to sit and reflect the overwhelming difficulty that you just overcame. To do so, we suggest you pour a nice glass of something. Bourbon would be our choice, but feel free to drink what you’d like. You all set now? Good. Press play and just sink into these dancy grooves from London based Disciples.
Harnessing one of the most soulful musical personalities to ever exist, this trio put a modern twist onto Marvin Gaye’s “Mercy Mercy Me,” from the absolute legend of an album What’s Going On. With soft, tropical undertones, Disciple expertly extracts memorable lines from the original, giving a more than adequate amount of respect to Mr. Gaye’s infamous tune.
This happens to be a free download. We suggest you download it and load it up for your weekend wind-down mix. Until then, feel free to stay right here and hit play again and again.
Pistol Pump Funk (Single) [MUSIC VIDEO OUT NOW]
Vermont-based duo Theo Klein and Trey Schibli, who craft luscious indie-pop under the guise of argonaut&wasp sent us over their newest record “Pistol Pump Funk” along with its official music video, and we just couldn’t shake their uniquely infectious sound. Only the pair’s second official release, “Pistol Pump Funk” rides a gorgeous sonic wave between indie-pop & rock and funk inspired chords amongst percussive elements typically found on club and dance productions; but the way in which their sounds are minced and layered together is nothing short of breathtaking. With the Summer heat wave directly upon us, this one will surely function as a breezy anthem to accompany many a pool party with their delicate balance of earthly tones and future electronics. Be sure to hit the jump for argonaut&wasp’s official “Pistol Pump Funk” music video which joyfully plays like a colorful and upbeat adventure through old saloons and modern streets scrawled with urban art. argonaut&wasp will be joining Lemâitre for a few East Coast dates, so be sure to check below, and don’t miss the chance to catch them in your home city.

James Curd & Luke Million Feat. Nah Man!
Say The Words To You (option4 Remix)
One of our most treasured finds, burgeoning dance producer option4 returns to grace the hallowed pages of TMN with perhaps his most groove-laden, intoxicating remix to date; which behind his viral dance modifications of Great Good Fine OK’s “You’re The One For Me”, Elizabeth Rose’s “The Good Life” and most recently, Donnel Jones’ “U Know What’s Up” is saying quite a lot. option4 has taken James Curd & Luke Million’s new single “Say The Words To You” to a textured soundscape only the Denver based, genre bending producer could. Kicking off behind a snappy four-four clap as opposed to the standard issue kick-drum, we were only moments into this revision before being aurally hooked to a light but soul consuming synth line that works as an addictive focal point for most of the track. Rather than utilizing an often times formulaic house route of the classic: intro/groove/break/groove/outro structuring in his compositions, option4′s remix plays like a story of sorts, dipping into chunky low ends, uplifting hi-hats, entrancing vocal work and hip-hop hooks all the while masquerading as a straightforward club tune. option4′s remix of “Say The Words To You” comes as a part of a congruently titled EP featuring remixes from Yolanda Be Cool, DCUP & more and seeing as we’re nothing short of an Old Faithful geyser’s worth of musical compliments, we implore you to give this one just six minutes of your day. If you’re really crunching to this one, snag the high quality copy on Beatport as well.
