[New] Nero – The Thrill (Porter Robinson Remix)

The Thrill (Porter Robinson Remix)

Following his Worlds Tour, it’s been a while since Porter Robinson came out with new music. To our surprise, he premiered this epic remix of Nero‘s “The Thrill” at Coachella last Friday and turned up the heat even more at the desert.  The 22-year-old prodigy sampled Alana Watson‘s vocals on top of some classic Porter maneuvers, creating beautiful melodies and fusing them with glitchy synths. The cadenced synth melodies manage to keep the track breathtaking, moving and epic, as it is closed out with some simple and pretty keys. The style of the remix resembles something off of Worlds.

It’s no surprise that Porter’s originality and relevance make him one of the frontrunners in the electronic scene. It’s creative minds like his that keep the ball rolling for today’s music. Take a listen to this brand new track as Porter Robinson once again proved that genres don’t matter.

[Festival Preview] Lightning in a Bottle 2015 + Playlist


Do you hear what we hear? It’s the sweet, sweet sound of festival season and it’s about time we get our eyes, ears, and minds ready for another year of sensational performances, overpriced beer, conflicting line-up times, and shower-less days to make us smell like regret the next morning. If you’re anything like us over here at TMN, then you understand just how important festival season is to us. Come on, who doesn’t love to spend hours upon hours of our weekends listening to some of the most talented artists from around the world while also connecting with like-minded individuals at the same exact time? Well, considering they’re not a wook…(please see THUMP article for more information on how to spot and avoid said wook).

With Coachella making it’s first pit stop this weekend and later this month, we can’t help but pack our bags a few weeks in advance because we’re prepared to take on this years Coachella head on. Clearly, we’re just really excited, but not because festival season is finally here, but because we just realized that we are 7 weeks shy of attending the latest and greatest gig, Lightning in a Bottle. Stationed out in the beautiful Bradley, California, LiB is back again and this time with loads of talent and entertainment that’ll rattle your bones and change your life all at the same time. We missed last years festivities and after listening to everyone and their mom (literally) tell us that LiB was the best thing to have ever happened to their lives, we can’t help but shed a million tears for not being present in the moment with some of the world’s most positive and uplifting people on this planet.

[Event Preview] The Underground Music Showcase – 7/23-7/26 – Denver, CO


After the raucous and discovery laden journey that was last year’s Underground Music Showcase in Denver, CO; we are once again gearing up for another edition of our favorite music festival in Denver. One of the few remaining music gatherings in our the fair city of Denver to eschew the typical smattering of major label festival fare, The UMS has dropped the first glimpse into a lineup boasting over 1,500+ acts strewn across various shops and bars dotting Denver’s South Broadway district, and we’ve already got stars in our widening Ninja eyes as a result.

Grab your tickets here, and quite honestly, for our friends in Denver, $50.00 for a four-day paradisaical dip into some of the best atmosphere and music (of an absurd number of genres as well, mind you) the Mile High City has to offer is what we like to call in the industry… “a steal”.

[Future Bass] SomeKindaWonderful – California Love (Chachi Remix)

SomeKindaWonderful - California Love (Chachi Remix)
California Love (Chachi Remix)

Following the success of his previous release “Land Down Under”, NY-based producer Chachi just set the bar even higher with this brand new remix of SomeKindaWonderful‘s cover of “California Love”. The electropop tune by the up and coming group is sped up in tempo and then turned into a future bass dance track. For a song that is super lyrically recognizable, this track is incredibly addicting and fun to sing along to. The heavyhitting bass comes in with a statement at the beat drop, fusing the two electronic subgenres surprisingly well. The boy band vocals fit in well with the complex elements of the track, as they bring out the mysterious vibe a little more.

Chachi has been on a roll with putting out quality future bass tracks. While we would love to see some original material from him, make sure to follow and show some support!

Secrets (ARMNHMR & DATHAN Festival Edit)

Every once in a while you come across an awesome track that just makes you jump up and down uncontrollably. Southern California-based duo ARMNHMR (proonounced “arm and hammer”) just released this epic remix of Tiesto‘s “Secrets” with their producer friend Dathan, and it’s an absolute banger for many festival goers.

They also spiced up the various beat drops, further shaping the to-be festival anthem. These maneuvers all contribute to the seductive vibe of this track.

Blink 182
Adam's Song (Kasum Remix)

As you’re reading the title you’re probably thinking to yourself, what could anyone possibly do to remix this song? Wonder no more, as NY-based producer Kasum stripped the Blink 182 classic “Adam’s Song” down to the bone and gave it the electronic dance treatment. Following the success of his debut single “Glorious”, Kasum takes it way back and gives us a taste of throwback punk rock music, and the fusion of the two genres surprisingly works wonders. The producer keeps it interesting by incorporating progressive melodies and dubstep elements without overshadowing the original vocals.

This track is just another example of the wide range of music Kasum has to offer. Grab a free copy of the tune here and show some support if you like this rendition of the 90’s classic.
