avatars-000068768534-pondw3-original

Originally from Santa Barbara, California, Daniel Ryan’s indie style hits a high note in his recently released collaborative EP, The Sun, featuring two tracks: “The Sun” and “Monster.” “The Sun” is a fresh track that stands out because it perfectly combines the relaxing sounds of indie-rock with unique electronic beats.

With influences like Pretty Lights and Bonobo, Ryan mirrors these stand-alone artists by creating a sound unique to him. Delivering on originality, “The Sun” begins with a soft instrumental intro that meshes into an electric harmony between Ryan and Molly Williams. Not only is there one amazing voice showcased throughout the track, Williams adds an unmatchable quality with her sound that connects beautifully to the pulsating electronic beats in the background. This mix between indie and electronic simply radiates good vibes and an electric energy.

With an anywhere, any time type of melody, this is a must listen to track that will leave you pressing the play button over and over again.

Air Balloon (Digital Farm Animals Remix)

It’s been a few months since we had a chance to check in and hear some new music from one of our favorite breakout artists of 2013, Digital Farm Animals, and behind a worthy individual debut EP Bugged Out, the London based electronic-pop artisan has admirably authored us up a first entry into the world of remixes by taking on bubbly pop vocalist Lily Allen and her newest single “Air Balloon”. If you’ve had a chance to weave your psyche into Digital Farm Animals’ production index, then the opening, dream-wavey synth line will serve as a comforting landmark amongst a sea of poppy percussion, while those vocals serve as the perfect vessel to progress the tune’s very catchy evolution. Just purely intoxicating stuff really. Digital Farm Animals’ remix of “Air Balloon” will come as part of Lily Allen’s congruently titled EP, which you can pre-order here and also features two remixes from Taiki & Nulight along with the original recording. Add a little funk-lean to your step this Monday and stream DFA’s revision above.

[NSFW] Jarell Perry – Braindead [TMN VIDEO PREMIERE]

There’s never really a question of whether or not there’s good music coming out of the City of Angels. Every other day, we’re stumbling over a new artist that wins us over. While we were already very familiar with “Braindead” from alt-Soul act Jarell Perry, he’s yet another example of the swelling sea of musical talent in L.A.

Fusing together classic soulful R&B vocals, electronic synths and beats, and pop structures, Perry has paved his own lane in this genre. “Braindead” is a classic example of his unique style, offering up something that would be easily appreciated from a radio audience, or blog-reading indepedent music lovers as well.

This tune dropped about three months ago, giving us a teaser of his upcoming White EP. Fast forward a few other releases, “Black Valentine” and “Eleven,” and today we’re honored to premiere the music video for “Braindead.” This painfully emotion-rich song features visuals that are most assuredly not safe for the workplace or school. However, if you’re feeling brave on the job, take a gander at this sultry embrace between two young ladies.

[Electro Soul] Jungle – Lucky I Got What I Want

Jungle
Lucky I Got What I Want

It’s better late than never. Truer words could be said as we listen to this glorious electro soul tune from Jungle. This crafty duo released “Lucky I Got What I Want” four months ago, and we somehow missed it. After listening to the layered atmospheric elements, draped over a luscious, repetitious beat, we were instantly pissed we went four months without hearing this.

So, we’re sorry that we let you down, but hopefully we redeemed ourselves after posting this delightfully soulful tune.

Something Blue

Last month, we got our hands on a jacking, future house/garage remix from London via Spain producer TÂCHES and if by judging from the tone of that post, you ninjas may have been able to tell that we were pretty excited to get our hands on some more material as soon as possible. Well that anticipatory wave has finally subsided with TÂCHES’ latest original recording, “Something Blue” being released over the weekend as a free download on account of reaching the epic 10,000 Facebook Fans club. This latest original tune floats like a cloud over genre limitations, fusing production elements of house- both deep and tech-  with very chilled down pop instrumentation techniques for an original piece it seems only the 20 year old producer could create. Take home the remix by following the link here, and start your Monday correctly.
