Museum Motel (Kid Moxie & The Gaslamp Killer)

Greek-born LA-based singer Elena Charbila, who goes by the name of Kid Moxie, is coming out with a much anticipated album titled 1888. Collaborating with talented producers like Angelo Badalamenti and The Gaslamp Killer, Kid Moxie is set to take over the electronic pop genre with such diversity in her bag of tricks.

Here we have a track titled “Museum Motel”, which is one of the two collaborations The Gaslamp Killer has contributed in producing. The Los Angeles-based DJ has been a renowned producer for his unpredictable and wide range of electronic style. Providing a classical and epic approach to this song, the two musicians put together something so catchy and jaw-dropping that we just can’t get enough of. From the heavy dependence of strings, classical style drum beats and a variety of brass and woodwind instruments, the unique sound is something right off of a movie soundtrack, or something of that caliber. The riff from the flute almost resembles and reminds us of the infamous Kill Bill featured “The Lonely Shepherd”. Kid Moxie’s muffled and sustained vocals mix together perfectly with the track by giving it an ominous and mysterious feel. There is no doubt that although her vocals are not the highlights of this track, the minimalist approach of her supporting vocals totally elevate the desired effect of the distinctive sound of distinctive tune.

With that said, make sure to check out Kid Moxie and The Gaslamp Killer, and stay tuned for the upcoming 1888 album that’s coming out on 12/2. Trust me, you do not want to miss that!

[Experimental] Flying Lotus – Coronus, The Terminator

Coronus, The Terminator

Flying Lotus released yet another peek into his upcoming album today with “Coronus, The Terminator.” While the tracks we’ve heard thus far seem to lean a bit more towards the darkness of his 2010 album, Cosmogramma, the latest glimpse combines those vibes with the aesthetic of his most recent project, Until the Quiet Comes. The result is ominous, yet relaxed and glimmering, making for a laid-back, albeit brief, listening experience. Give this one a spin above–You’re Dead! is out October 7th via Warp Records.

Jewelz & Sparks – Phantom [TMN Premiere]

Jewelz & Sparks
Phantom (Original Mix)

Hidden in the deepest, darkest corners of our fears lies a maniacal phantom who has decided to stir up a frenzy inside our heads. This figment of our imagination isn’t just your typical worst nightmare because it actually turns out that he’s not just an apparition…he’s real and he’s about to permeate your mind and lure you into his madness. Helping him fulfill his twisted endeavors are madmen, Jewelz & Sparks. The German duo decided to pull the sheets off from over head and drag us into a chaotic hallucination with their newest original, “Phantom”.

Is somebody there?…

Filled with fear-evoking, mind-boggling, ear-shattering elements, Jewelz & Sparks have introduced us to the once dormant phantom by means of this haunting production. Loaded with bursting electro synths, grimy breakdowns, and a haunting, child-like hook to make you break a sweat, “Phantom” is out of this world in every way – and that’s an understatement. With no intentions of settling our fears, Jewelz & Sparks have completely violated all of our boundaries and have taken us to a terrorizing place that would make even Freddy Krueger want to call his mommy. Jewelz & Sparks have taken the mask off of this mysterious enigma and are about to provoke you like never before. Prepare to sleep with one eye open tonight, ninjas, because you won’t be able to sleep peacefully after hearing this. “Phantom” is out next week (9/23) on Dim Mak Records, so if you’re crazy enough to handle this beastly song, then hop on over to iTunes and pre-order your copy today.

Well with the one day mega event just one business week away from becoming a reality, we wanted to extend our hands and invite our Ninja friends in Colorado (or anyone else who wants to make the trek to Denver for that matter) to try and win a pair of free tickets. As with every one of our contests, entering is streamlined and simple for you savvy readers.  Simply follow these steps below and CHECK YOUR EMAIL.

California

If you live in Los Angeles, chances are seeing a Soulection showcase has been on your bucket list for quite some time. With talents like starRo on the roster, it’s easy to see why. He’s spent the better part of 2014 becoming a household name with his incredible production chops and if you’re not on the hypetrain yet, we hope this will change your mind. “California” perfectly embodies the spirit of the state, its people, and its music scene: electric, laid-back, and soulful. Take a trip down PCH to this one here–it’s an experience you don’t want to miss out on.
