Rose Ryot – S6X [TMN PREMIERE]

Rose Ryot
S6X (KaterMukke Records)

Veiled in mystery, there’s very little we can share with London based artist Rose Ryot. While we would normally find a tidbit here or there on facebook, or maybe some information on twitter, for Rose Ryot, there’s nothing. When we say they don’t have anything on Soundcloud just yet, we literally mean they have nothing. Until today.

What we do know is this: today’s feature is the groups first track off of their first EP ‘Enter The Ryot’ due out on November 13 via legendary Berlin club Kater Holzig’s label “KatterMukke.” The tune, “S6X” is draped in sexuality, as indicated by the title of the track. It’s experimental in nature, exploding in frenetic drum beats, interspersed between haunting vocals and clanging bell chimes.

While this track has a very dark and ominous instrumentation, the vocals are enchanting enough to bring it back full circle. It’s quite remarkable, and we can’t wait to hear more.

[Event Preview] Toro Y Moi + Classixx (Live) at The Ogden Theatre – Denver, CO – 11/6/13

Toro-Tour-poster

Fresh off the heels of one of our favorite albums of 2013 thus far and his third full-length under the Toro Y Moi moniker, Anything In Return, Chaz Bundick’s Berkeley-via-South Carolina music project once again touches down in Denver, CO at The Ogden Theatre this Wednesday, November 6 for what looks to be an amazing night also featuring L.A.’s rising house music heartthrobs  Classixx and their new live show. Not one to be pigeonholed into any single genre, each of Toro Y Moi’s respective releases have been far and away a different animal than the previous, using structural production elements from pop, indie, garage, chillwave, house and more to result into one of our favorite live acts around and a can’t miss for our TMN family.

Rounding out the amazing bill is aforementioned production duo, Classixx, who are also riding the waves of momentum from a sonically captivating debut long-player of their own which was actually many years in the making, Hanging Gardens. Classixx brings their new live performance with them after years as touring DJ’s and they are already welcome faces to the Denver dance scene after delivering solid performances in 2013 at both the Norad Dance Bar and The Ogden; so we expect a raucous crowd to begin piling in as soon as doors are opened. For our Denver Ninjas, you can buy your tix here, and we’ll see you on the floor this Wednesday! In anticipation of Wednesday night’s show, you can stream Toro Y Moi’s “So Many Details” off of Anything In Return and Classixx’ viral hit from Hanging Gardens “Holding On” below. Enjoy.

[Remix] Drake – Come Thru (James Blake Version)

Drake
Come Thru (James Blake Version)

Just when you thought those Drake remixes were finally slowing down, we get this brand new revision of “Come Thru” courtesy of James Blake. While the original was a little too playful for my tastes, Blake’s rework adds a sense of urgency to the track, especially when the ominous synths kick in around the one minute mark where Drizzy begins his verse. Of course the transformation wouldn’t be complete without Blake adding in his own backing vocals, which compliment the dark overtones added through his production. Check out the tune above, and let us know your thoughts. Hopefully this means we’re one step closer to hearing that collaboration between the two artists we’ve all been anxiously waiting for.

[Electronica] Max Cooper & Tom Hodge – Fragmented Self pt. 1 EP

2

Rarely does the concept of pairing musically polar opposites pan out as both artists had intended, but the instrumental fraternization between electronic producer Max Cooper and classical composer Tom Hodge has resulted in a beautifully unique grouping of tracks. The first half of their joint effort, entitled the Fragmented Self pt. 1 EP is forward thinking music to say the least, beginning with the title track, which combines Hodge’s contemporary orchestrations with Max Cooper’s glitchy and confrontational cut up samples of the very same movements. At first listen “Fragmented Self” may come off as a bit rough, but when truly dissected is some of the more ambitious and exploratory music crafted within the last few years. Following up is  ”Von Der Klippe Fallen”, which again couples tech heavy warehouse elements with classical piano and a scooting bassline; while ending tune “Quantet” (also available as a free download) plays as the most melodic of the bunch, employing a dreamy synth charge behind a wall of refined strings. If your palate for music functions as the type which needs to be pushed and challenged, Fragmented Self pt. 1 should absolutely be worthy of a few jog-throughs. Stream Max Cooper & Tom Hodge’s first collaborative EP in its entirety below.

[Alternative] Fyfe – Lies Pt. II

f y f e
Lies Pt. II

Fyfe has already expressed his disdain for deceit once before, but it seems like he wasn’t quite finished with the topic. Hammering his point home for a second time, this sequel takes a much more minimalist approach than the original, with the UK crooner’s vocals floating seamlessly over a nearly vacant, serene ambient backdrop. It’s a truly beautiful song, and yet another gem to add to the London native’s excellent collection. Check out the single above, and make sure to grab yourself a free download of this wonderful tune.

[Experimental Hip-Hop] Emay – Wudhu (Cleanliness)

Emay - Wudhu
Emay
Wudhu Cleanlinessness (Demo)

We haven’t heard much from Emay since last year’s instrumental project, Into It. Well, it finally looks like the Montreal native is ready to take command of the mic again, letting go of a brand new demo called, “Wudhu (Cleanliness).”  We’ve always been fans of the emcee’s stream of consciousness flow, and his production is still on a whole different level, as he blends together a distorted, harmonious sample with a simple, pounding drum pattern to produce a vivid, awe inspiring instrumental.

The song’s title makes reference to the process of cleansing oneself that Muslims practice before every prayer. Could that signal that Emay is ready to make a fresh start? Let’s hope so, because we’ve waited way too long to hear a new project from the talented young wordsmith.
