[New] MØ – GLASS

The powerfully beautiful sounds of Copenhagen-based electro-pop artist have come to life once more with her new single “Glass”. Coming off her release of “Pilgrim” back in October of last year, her new track is a much calmer rendition that accentuates her magnificent vocal range over a subtle rhythm of trap influenced drum patterns, calypso-like melodies and non-intrusive electronics.

MØ will be releasing ‘Pilgrim’ in February Neon Gold Stateside and Chess Club in Europe. ‘GLASS’ can be purchased now on Danish iTunes.

Ryan Hemsworth – An Overture Might Help Me Stop Thinking About You

Ryan Hemsworth, known primarily for his well executed and minimalist influenced hip/hop productions, is back an absolute gem to kickstart the new year. Just after his release of ‘BasedWolrd’ on January 2nd of 2013, to which he gave away for free, the Canadian producer experiments once more with an emotional filled instrumentational track titled ‘An Overture Might Help Me Stop Thinking About You’. While it lacks the grandeur of its predecessor ‘BasedWolrd’, he remains consistent at layering intricate sounds to form one smooth and coherent environment of harmony.

‘An Overture Might Help Me Stop Thinking About You’ comes from a recent Friends of Friends (FoF) Compilation, an eclectic 7-track compilation “exploring all aspects of the electronic soundscape with elements of wintry vibes”.

[Experimental] Kids of the Apocalypse – Masters of the Sun

With the heavy influence of EDM and dubstep in mainstream music over the past couple years, the boundaries for genres of music have become increasingly non-existant. As 2013 hits, the sound of “pop” music is involving into more of an eclectic mix that was once only heard on the underground. This concept is becoming more apparent with the debut single “Masters of the Sun” from newcomers Kids of the Apocalypse. This international group mixes elements of dubstep, trap, synth, and vocals from a children’s choir to create a unique and intriguing track that could easily be the sound of pop music for an ever-changing new generation. Be sure to check out this free download below.

[Experimental] Fol Chen – 200 Words

Los Angeles’ electro/indie pop group Fol Chen plan to release their fourth LP, The False Alarms, this Spring. Today, we get a first taste of that album with “200 Words,” a tune that seems made for secret late night rendezvous. Slinky and seductive, it moves alongside slow beats and even lower synth work, led by Sinosa Loa’s hypnotic vocals. Check out the dark and sexy track below.

[Experimental] Young Wonder – To You

Young Wonder, an electro-pop duo hailing from Cork, Ireland, dropped an eponymous debut EP in April of last year. But it wasn’t until their single “To You” was released in early December that people began to wonder about Young Wonder. They say their songs are filled with “big beats, pitched vocals, euphoric synths” and the sweet timbre of front-woman Rachel Koeman. The group’s primitive, colorful aesthetic (evident in the track’s music video) brings to mind Crystal Fighters while the sounds verges on Purity Ring wanna-be.

No remix I’ve heard thus far does the song justice, but they each offer up different, unique takes on the original. The “Keep Shelly in Athens Remix” dubsteps it up and distorts the vocals beyond recognition while “The Ambassadeurs Remix” elongates and chops up the ambient trance parts.

Look out for their Show Your Teeth EP coming Spring 2013.

Aylen 2013 Bootleg Pack : A MUST DOWNLOAD PACK TO BEGIN 2013 [TMN PREMIERE]


With so many obvious reasons to love New Jersey producer Andrew Lin, better known as Aylen, there was no doubt in our minds that whatever he did next, we would fully support it. Yet, in all honesty, I was not expecting such a massive release. PREPARE FOR WHAT WILL BE THE MOST EXCITING BOOTLEG PACK OF 2013, as Aylen is about to unleash a collection of 13 delicately produced bangers completely unique in both execution and style.

The Music Ninja has been known for frowning upon mashups just because at the end of the day, too many producers seem to simply layer two tracks together and call it a mix. Aylen has redefined and set the new standard for what a mashups should be like in the modernized area of electronic dance music. The very first track, “Toxic Streisand” captures the nostalgia of previous years with the ubiquitous 2010 single from Duck Sauce ‘Barbra streisand’ and the focus and determination of ‘Toxic Rush’ (Jewelz feat. Scott Sparks) bassline. It sets the mood for the next 12 songs and leaves you prepared to expect the unexpected. From utter bass destruction with a mashup combining Dada Life and Gigi Borocoo, to melodically rich tracks influenced by Martin Solveig, Madeon and Hard Rock Sofa. It has it all.

‘Cannonball’ also takes an enormous amount of spotlight as Aylen edits in Anchorman (the Movie) quotes throughout Carnage & Victor Niglio’s big room trap remix. Being surprised at what is coming out of our speakers is the best gift we could receive welcoming a new year.

There is just so much for everyone that already being 9 days into 2013, we know this compilation will lively be apart of dance floors all across the world for months to come.
