[Samptronic] TNERTLE – Greens EP

tnert

It’s been a little while since we’ve heard from Denver based, Berklee School of Music trained TNERTLE and now we know why. If your memory serves you correctly, which it probably doesn’t after your weekend festivities, we wrote up this groovy two-piece electronica act almost a year ago. Something about Colorado style, electro-hop production caught our ear, and we’ve been hooked ever since.

Just a few days back, Trent Campbell and Kyle Ayervais put out this aptly named Greens EP, more than likely giving a nod to recent events in Colorado legislature. With Campbell laying down smooth and sometimes funky basslines and controlling the midi, Ayervais adds his flair with laid back drum work that’s worthy of any Sunday chill sesh.

These two keep progressing as artists, continually developing their craft. After seeing their live shows, we can tell you that things are only looking up for this young, Denver outfit.

[Nu-Disco] Pharrell ft. Justin Timberlake – Brand New (Slinger Remix)

Pharrell
Brand New (Slinger Remix)

There is something almost symbiotic about the relationship between disco dance vibes and Mondays. One pulls its listener into visions of happy, sunshine soaked dance floors while the other is slightly more bleak in its undertone, pulling your psyche into a paradoxical direction altogether. Yin and Yang. Sweet and salty. Balance. Which, not to wax philosophically for much longer, is why we love to pair glitzy club tunes with the most dreaded day of the week. Today, the mysterious Slinger popped up with a very driven and elegant slice of disco induced house rhythms that commanded the undivided attention of our cochlear cavities from its onset. Remixing two of the most influential artists of our time can be an arduous task, but Slinger’s slinky kicks and pointed nu-disco percussion paired with the unmistakable and altogether dreamy vocal reverberations of Pharrell and Justin Timberlake has resulted in quite the hooky dance tune in the form of a syrupy Summer nu-disco remix. The vibe painted onto “Brand New” by Slinger is one of high energy poolside day parties, which I think we could all be yearning for right about now. Slinger is most certainly an act to keep your ears tuned into, and you can bet that ours will be too. Check it out above.

[TMN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW] Art Department

Art Department Official
Much Too Much

Known for their pulsing, progressive live performances, the Canadian music production duo known as Art Department has quickly made a profound impact on the underground deep house scene. The sensual dance swagger put together by vocal dynamo Kenny Glasgow and No.19 record label founder Jonny White has elevated them to be considered some of the top DJs in the world right now. From Ultra Music Festival to Coachella, along with an upcoming set confirmed on the Hyte stage at Mysterland, Art Department’s momentum continues to gather devoted followers with every show. The two recently released a new track available for free download on Soundcloud called “Heartbreakers Techno”, which was featured not too long ago on Clayton’s Friday Party Playlist. We highly recommend you give their latest release a listen, and be sure to groove to Art Department’s recorded live performance from the BPM Festival this year in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.

We recently had the chance to catch up with Kenny Glasgow and Jonny White prior to their performance at Ultra Music Festival. They let us in on some exciting news and upcoming projects, and gave us some perspective on what they’re trying to do with their music.

TMN: I’m here with Kenny Glasgow and Jonny White of Art Department. Jonny, you’re the owner of No. 19 records, correct?

Jonny White: Yeah.

TMN: I hear that you guys have a five year anniversary coming up. Is that right?

Jonny White: Yeah we’re celebrating 5 years and it’s fuckin’ flown by, right!? (Looks at Kenny) So yeah we’re really excited about that, and we’re doing compilations showcasing a lot of people that have been involved over the past 5 years. It’s mental.

TMN: And what are these parties that you’re throwing?

Jonny White: Social Experiments.

TMN: Tell us a little bit about that.

Jonny White: It’s like everybody does with their label showcases, but we’ve branded ours “Social Experiment”, which kind of describes what we’re doing. We’re incorporating a lot of different genres of music, and different types of artists that are on the label. For me that’s the best way to interact directly with our fans and represent exactly what we’re about. We want everyone to feel that energy from the most current music that we’re releasing, or planning to release over the next while. That’s the concept.

TMN: Why Art Department? How did that name come about?

Jonny White: It’s just a great name I thought.

Kenny Glasgow: It was supposed to be a record label in the early, early days.

Jonny White: I’ve got a list of names for shit, you know, and hopefully I’ll get around to using them for something. Art Department was at the top of the list for a while.

Futurecop! – Eyes ft Lyon (Muneshine Remix) [TMN PREMIERE]

Futurecop!
Eyes ft Lyon (Muneshine Remix)

Manchester has more to root about than just Man U. While this song is the furthest thing from what a soccer hooligan would throw on before a match, it’s still something to stop and admire. On a side note, we’d like to apologize for calling it soccer. Seeing as how this blogger is a Yank, we still call it soccer.

Regardless of what nomenclature we’re using for the world’s game, we can assure you that this track will have worldwide appeal. Boasting some deliciously delicate vocals, the second single from the upcoming album Fairytales of Summer Shoegazers features soaring synths coupled with charging atmospheric layering. Futurecop! hs created something that begs to be remixed and today we’re excited to bring you just that.

Bringing a sound that infuses a little future bass, Tortononian based producer Muneshine has given this tune a whole new personality, providing ample rolling bass to set the tone. Known best for his remix of Portugal. The Man, this producer has a knack for re-interpreting tunes. We’re sure this take on “Eyes” is the first of many we’ll be covering.
