Come With Me
One of the great finds of the day belongs to Aten Rays, a New York-based producer who specializes in being exploratory with new electronic elements and samples.
The tune starts off with this creepy humming chant, which is later used as a sample throughout the song. When the beat comes in, it helps create this abrupt house environment with the minimalist beat. The beat is well thought out and put together, and just when you think it’s about to get more complex, the breakdown part comes in with the reoccurring voice chant sample. This tune has an overall mystical and mysterious feel to it, resembling some of the work by Mr. Carmack. Go give it a listen and see if you can dig it!
Future Classic just keeps pumping out music that’s just way ahead of our time (literally). After an incredible response from Seekae‘s last tune, “Test & Recognise”, a remix from the legendary Flume himself, and an incredible interpretation about that remix from our fellow ninja master, Clayton, the young Aussie is becoming an unstoppable force to reckon with. Less than a day ago, the Future Classic rising gem released a haunting new original titled, “Monster” off his new album, The Worry. Seekae really took his production to the next level with this mellow, yet ghostly masterpiece. “Monster” intricately paints an eerie story full of vivid imagery, internal monsters, and an eerie voice leading us to a certain darkness. This elusive track sends us straight to the monster himself.
I’m in the corner of your room
theres something coming, something soon
I only wanted to explain
I feel this way today “

Our Love (Daphni Mix)
Caribou‘s return has been absolutely magnificent. Earlier today, on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio One mix, Daphni, the alter-ego of Caribou’s Dan Snaith, made his first return remixing the title track from the forthcoming album. While the original version of “Our Love” already holds a distinct dance feel, Daphni rearranges the bass-line and vocal sample to give it more of an underground, UK garage feel. Spanning over 7-minutes, this remix captivates the listener with its steady progression. Give this one a spin above–Our Love is out digitally on September 15h and can be pre-ordered via iTunes now.
Easy (KLYN Remix)
The ninjas are out on the prowl and we just keep searching deeper and deeper into the cloud only to find you the talent that deserves to be recognized. With only 1 song, 58 followers, and roughly 1,600 plays in five days, Vienna producer KYLN hasn’t quite lit that flame…until now. After perusing through endless amounts of sounds from all over, we stumbled upon his one and only remix of Son Lux’s “Easy”, and needless to say, he gave us exactly what we want to hear at this time of day. Combining such deep rhythms with melodic elements, KYLN creates an aesthetically atmospheric setting for all of us to zone out and get lost in the moment. It is evident that he has many sources of inspiration including Hip-Hop, Soul, Indie, and Electronic music; KYLN merges these different sounds together and turned “Easy” into a the type of song that makes you want to sit outside at 4 in the morning and ponder your surroundings. Enjoy the eerie ambiance with KYLN and stay tuned for what’s to come for this talented producer.
Colours (feat. Allume)
Well, it’s officially the start to a long weekend ahead for all of the ninja here at TMN because we have officially started our first ever Blog-A-Thon. Not only will we be bringing you heaps of new music, but we will be shutting down the internet in no time. Kicking things off on a good vibe for the midnight rush is with Australia’s best kept secret, Oscilla. The young producer just released a new original titled, “Colours”, which features the vibe-enhancing vocals from Allume. If this doesn’t scream “KEEP ME ON REPEAT UNTIL COLORS BLEED FROM YOUR EARS” then we honestly think you need to re-evaluate how you listen to music.
With its Flume-inspired sound design, an ambient percussive flow, and a hauntingly beautiful vocal from Allume, “Colours” is bound to make you escape to somewhere truly euphoric. If you’re on this side of the world then you might be turning down for sleep, but if you’re just getting your day started then you’ve come to the right place. So why don’t you press play and start your weekend off on a lighter note. Did we mention it’s free?
CURTAIN CALL (P A T H REMIX)
16 year old bass sensation P A T H has returned to TMN with another well thought out, groovy and glitched remix; this time of Jacuzzi’s “Curtain Call”. Coming off of an impressive and completely innovative rendition of Kimbra’s pop smash “Settle Down”, the Vermont native turns in another tune with a sound you would think to be beyond his years. An air of euphoria fills the tune from its onset of muted pads down to the first breath of dreamy string arrangements, and we just couldn’t seem to wrap our heads around its subtle intricacies with just one listen. Which is why it’s been on repeat at this writer’s desk for about twenty minutes now. And sticking to his altruistic record with his music, P A T H is giving this one away for free on FB here. Hop to it, slink back and let this one ride loud on a real set of monitors.
Two Bodies feat. Emma Louise (Extended Version)
Did we just see the words Flight Facilities pop up on our music radar? You bet your bottom dollar we just did. After witnessing them perform live at this years Coachella Music Festival, our ninja clan fell even more in love with Flight Facilities; their uplifting melodies chill us to the bone and send us into a state of mental paralysis to which all we are forced to do is groove. It feels as if we have been waiting for forever to hear the latest from the Australian dance duo, but look no further ninjas, because they’re back with a stunning new original, “Two Bodies” which features the dreamy vocals from Emma Louise.
“Two Bodies” exemplifies everything flawless in a track; with its subtle ambient vibe, a soft percussion, and Emma’s ghostly vocals collectively create the perfect escape. Wishing we were intertwined with that of another human being, Flight Facilities gives us every reason to escape from the norm and drift off into the delicate sound waves exuded from this divinity. “Two Bodies” is the first release off of their debut full-length album, Down to Earth, which is set to be released on October 28th. Pre-Order the album on iTunes and enjoy the celestial bliss that resonates from all over in this ethereal track.
