Spring is around the corner, which means that it’s almost festival season! As one of our first stops, TMN is going to the CRSSD festival in San Diego. Taken place at the Waterfront Park on March 14 and 15, CRSSD fest features some of the frontrunners and up-and-comers in today’s electronic music. Powerhouses including Empire of the Sun, Chromeo, Odesza, Flight Facilities are headlining the festival at the “Ocean View Live” stage, while deeper acts like Kaytranada, Thomas Jack, Bakermat and Bixel Boys will try to win the crowd at “The Palms” stage.

The three-stage set up will definitely give a refreshing feel to all festival-goers. Thousands will gather at Waterfront Park and dance their pants off while overseeing the beautiful city of San Diego. With its popularity rising at such a high rate, CRSSD festival is representing sunny San Diego by stepping its game up. We are very excited to be able to witness the very first debut of the festival, as there will be many more in the future.

[Electro-Pop] Tei She – Bassically (HONNE Remix)

Tei Shi
Bassically (HONNE Remix)

Shortly after announcing a few festival plays this summer, Tei She unveils an official remix of her single ‘Bassically’. Emerging UK duo HONNE administers a clean and pleasant demolition that only further cements both artists into our minds. These particular three minutes and thirty one seconds are a luxury experience. This is an extremely polite collaboration. It will make you rise. Tei She will release her EP Verde on April 13th via Double Denim Records. Pre-order here. She will also be supporting Jungle on a couple of UK shows, including the last of their tour at London’s Brixton Academy.

[Fresh] Jack Garratt – Chemical

CHEMICAL Other (Spotify etc)
Jack Garratt

Jack Garratt finally broke a short silence since his buttery smooth tune, “The Love You’re Given,” and graced our ears with a big shift in sound on “Chemical.” His unrelenting and powerful vocals shine through in the intro, supplemented only by claps and short risers until the grating synths bust in for a surprising and upbeat switch up. This tune showcases even more of Garratt’s flawless falsetto and his production potential within just three and a half minutes, and every second of it resounds clean and clear.

“Chemical” is an intriguing medium between MNEK and Chet Faker, while creating an aura all its own with ease. Jack Garratt breaks the mold by being a multi-faceted threat and excelling at it, as evident by his past two tunes. “Chemical” is no different and the change of pace finds Garratt catching his stride early and quickly. London won’t be short on amazing artists anytime soon with acts like Jack Garratt crafting material like this. Shake up your routine with something truly stimulating and stream “Chemical” above!

Ghost Loft
Talk To Me (Bearson Remix)

If you haven’t heard of Bearson, you’re about to get your chance. Since the release of “Pink Medicine”, the Norwegian producer had been on a roll with his new tracks. Remixing Ghost Loft‘s “Talk To Me” and giving it a Porter Robinson-esque vibe, Bearson can melt everyone’s heart with this soothing little tune. A series of feel-good synth combined with majestic vocals result in a beautiful track that we simply just can’t get enough of.

This track showcases Bearson’s diversity and his ever-changing sound. Every release of his has been a pleasant surprise. At such a young age, Bearson is slowly establishing himself as one of the most exciting up and coming electronic artists in 2015. If you enjoy this track, make sure to grab it as a free download here!

[Video] ‘Welcome To DreamVille’ TomorrowWorld Recap

TomorrowWorld "Artists Of Tomorrow” Volume #005: Lane 8

There’s no doubt in anyone’s mind – festival season is upon us, and we’re god damn excited.

Profanities aside, there are only a few outlets that allow people to escape their daily routine to enter a fantasy world for a weekend and become anyone they want to be. The mystical festival of TomorrowWorld definitely falls on this list.

In addition to three days enjoying some of the best electronic music in the galaxy, TomorrowWorld also permits festival-goers to camp on the grounds in the town of DreamVille. Attached to the festival grounds, this camp hosts 40,000 international crazed dance music fans for four nights of non-stop partying. From morning Yoga/Workout classes to an incredible array of market shops to the perfect pre-party – The Gathering, it’s hard to compare DreamVille to anything else. You can rough it and and bring your own tent to camp out in, or you can be go in style (which is what we would probably do) in TomorrowWorld-fixed Easy Tents or Dream Lodges.

Earlier today,TomorrowWorld released an epic video to give fans a better sense of what DreamVille is, but let’s be honest, it doesn’t even give justice to the real thing.

Act quick, ninjas. Reserve your spot in DreamVille for TomorrowWorld 2015 here because spots are almost entirely filled up.

[Electronic/R&B/Dance] Digital Farm Animals – Didn’t Know ft. Yasmin

Digital Farm Animals
Didn't Know (Feat. Yasmin)

Over the course of the last few years, we’ve cultivated a pretty unique relationship with multifaceted London based electronic producer, Digital Farm Animals. While his last official release under the Digital Farm Animals handle was a funky, dance-pop re-imagining of Lily Allen’s “Air Balloon” just under a year ago, which in the time-capsule that is our blogosphere can feel like a decade or more, the brain behind DFA (and a producing consultant at Sony Music), Nick Gale, has been bouncing beautiful tunes off of us behind closed doors in the time between releases. From straight to the club house tracks, to buoyant slices of electronica, Digital Farm Animals effortlessly carries a deft touch within basically every music structure it encounters. The latest official addition into the DFA library, “Didn’t Know”, is a slower burning fusion of R&B along with dance elements culled from a multitude of niche genres. Featuring a silky and soulful vocal from fellow Londoner Yasmin, “Didn’t Know” reveals yet another astutely executed layer to DFA’s constantly evolving aural aesthetic. Hopefully this snowball’s worth of a single accumulates into an avalanche of new music by year’s end, as we are one of the few resources in the know in regards to the upstart producers seemingly constant flow of superb electronicism. Get in on the secret and stream “Didn’t Know” above.

[House] TÂCHES – Yours (Ft. PB Kaya)

TÂCHES - Yours (ft. PB Kaya)
Yours (Ft. PB Kaya)

Surprise! UK producer TÂCHES just released this tune on Next Wave Records out of nowhere. Known for his godly maneuvers on vocal samples, TÂCHES stripped down PB Kaya‘s vocals and colored them in ominous ways. “Yours” is no regular house tune, as it features techno synths and a deep bassline. It will take you on a dark and mysterious journey in the short duration of the track. Not to mention the B&W cover artwork further gives off a noir vibe.

The mysterious producer is definitely making his way back into the underground scene with this release. Make sure to grab a free download via Toneden here! We’re expecting more trending music from the talented producer and Next Wave.
