Sometimes Spinnin’ Records surprises us with a really top quality record. A few times within the past year, they’ve pushed singles from Fox Stevenson, a bass act that you wouldn’t really expect to have releases with this label. He’s been a fresh act with them, revitalizing their catalog with dope tracks, including his newest one “Comeback.” Besides creating a boisterous glitch production that he also lent his superb voice to, the crew decided to make a music video for the track. Featuring none other than Fox Stevenson himself, the music video follows a couple individuals leading up to one of Fox’s shows. It’s a tasteful visual that is a nice addition to an extremely fun song. Check the video out below and head over to iTunes to grab the extended mix for yourself.
Perhaps our favorite single common thread around the staff at TMN is the ability to showcase artists in our favorite cities across the U.S. We’ve been able to bring some of our absolute favorite artists’ live shows over the years as presenters, and this Thursday (10/22) in Denver, we’re incredibly proud to bring another very special show to the Mile High City with Teen Daze. Fresh off of the release of another excellent and critically applauded LP addition to the enigmatic producer’s catalog (he uses only his first name professionally), Morning World, Teen Daze will no doubt bring with him another excellent incarnation of an expanding live show to Lost Lake Lounge. We’ve been able to gradually witness Teen Daze’s steady evolution from his earliest work, which was often times lumped in with the ‘chillwave’ movement, to an artist whose rhythms and melodies have taken center stage and allowed the Western Canada based producer to offer a more engaging, and even dance-oriented concert experience. Needless to say we’re chomping at the bit for another chance to see Teen Daze in such an intimate venue.
The night’s opening flavor kicks off quite tastefully as well with Portland via Buffalo ambient-pop experimentalist Cemeteries. Also coming off of an extremely well executed LP, Barrow, which had us drawing up comparisons to the current arc of post-punk revivalists and darkwave flag bearers including The Soft Moon, and A Place To Bury Strangers. Just excellent stuff really. Rounding out the bill is newly formed Dream-Pop troupe Shark Dreams, who thus far have released only one demo and have our curiosity piqued with their worthy entry into the world of singles.
Of course, when we present a show, we’d rather not just talk about it, but get our savvy readers in on the fun as well, so we’re giving away not one, but two pairs of tickets to this Thursday night’s show. As always, entering our contest is beyond simple. Just “like” Teen Daze, and The Music Ninja’s Facebook pages, and comment below on why you’re excited or deserve to win. That’s it! We’ll notify our winners Thursday afternoon, the day of the show at 12:00 p.m. Mountain Standard Time. Stream our preview playlist below to get your ears ready, and good luck!
There are a few rules, of course:
– The event is 18+, so tell all your friends to increase your odds of winning!
– You are responsible for your own transportation.
– You must bring a valid form of ID to pick up your tickets at the Lost Lake Lounge door.
– You must find a TMN representative and let them buy you a drink (perhaps a Red Bull for our non legal friends?)
Let’s get weird. Let’s dance irresponsibly. Let’s party, because it’s Friday! Get crunk with this week’s playlist that goes from some sexy soul, all the way up to some high velocity electro house. As usual, we have a dozen records from this past week together in one free package. You’ll be able to grab freebies from KickRaux, Kill Paris, along with JumoDaddy, Shwann and more. Take the 168th playlist forth and let yourself loose over the weekend. Recharge those batteries, and help your friends to do the same by sharing these quality tunes with them!
Why are crossover records so darn delicious? We could answer that, but instead, we’re going to just share with you a new hybrid single from Warp9 called “Milky Way Jello” that fuses future funk with hip-hop. It’s been done before here and there, but this record is definitely groovier than the rest. Warp9 enlists rapper Everyman, horn player/producer Willdabeast and Safi’s Lab for the record that was released as a part of the Milky Way Jello EP on Adapted Records. “Milky Way Jello” is a sexy medley of nearly too much good stuff, which is why I’ve had it on repeat all day today. Whether you’re chilling with your friends, in a road trip, or looking to dance, this is the record you need. Check the rest of the EP out through Beatport, where you can buy the single, or the entire EP if you’re feeling it.
Sexy Electric is one of those labels too many people are sleeping on. They recently released a free single from Virtu who has been breaking into the scene from his home base in Los Angeles. Although he’s only released a few tracks, he’s already become one of the hottest new producers. His last record was a heavier midtempo track, but with “Blunt Force” he smooths out the sound for a more future type sound slightly reminiscent of Illenium. Virtu delivers a beautiful record that would have been the perfect Summer track, but now it’s going to keep our spirits up in with the colder weather. “Blunt Force” is on the slower side, but it still has groove and dance appeal to be used in any atmosphere. Look out for Virtu’s upcoming Diligence EP, which this single will be a part of.
The week is finally over, and the Friday Party Playlist is here. Let’s get things going, shall we? We start things off with Tommie Sunshine and KANDY, along with a Grant Lazo mashup of some classic records to get the mood just right for tonight. Then, we take “Uber” to the party where Kastra, Choppa Dunks, YOOK!E and more turn things up for a solid night of good tunes from both the house and bass realms. As always, every track here is available for free, so make sure once you’re done partying tonight, come back tomorrow and download them for your digital library. And remember, #danceirresponsibly.
