Over the last few months, we’ve introduced a couple fresh new artists from the Brooklyn and SF-based Wread Wrkr Media collective. Earlier this summer, WW delivered their first compilation featuring an array of artists and producers from both locales. Ninety, TRW, and Database  lead the charge, creating amply versatile, yet unified, sound spaces merging an array of genres and sounds–all indicative of the diverse locales and influences they habituate.The tape carries a distinctively laid-back feel melding positive vibes from both coasts fitting perfectly with the last month of summer.

Check out a few of our favorite tracks above and head over to Bandcamp to download the whole project: Wread Wrkr – Good Morning SF.

[Get Crunk] Friday Party Playlist (Vol. 114)

fpp

It’s Fridayyyy so say heyyyy to the weekend! After a crazy week of working, petting cats, and anxiously counting down the seconds to today, one could say we have been biting at the bit to get you all another playlist of party poppin’ bangers. This week we have yet another intense stack of mind blowing (literally speaking) tracks to help pump you up for a rage-tastic next couple of days.

I’ve been trying to do a better job at incorporating all different types of party music in each weeks FPP whether it be some twerk-worthy trap, dirty wub wub dubstep, groovy deep house, or some amplifying electro house – I AM DOING MY BEST OVER HERE. It’s my job to give you music to brag to your friends about because knowing music before everyone else makes you appear cooler than the rest. Totally kidding on that part – you’re worth far more than the bangers provided to you every Friday afternoon. Go grab a bottle, fill up those cups, press play, and TURN THE BLEEP UP.

Until next week, ninjas. #danceirresponsibly

[NEW] Rustie – Attak (Feat. Danny Brown)

Green Language
Rustie
Attak (feat. Danny Brown)

With his second studio album, Green Language, set to drop next month (the follow-up to 2011′s Glass Swords), Rustie decided to leak one of the most anticipated singles from the project, “Attak,” featuring frequent collaborator, Danny Brown. The track is just as insane as you might expect, opening with wailing sirens and a wave of skittering 808′s that urge Danny to do what he does best–spit like a homicidal maniac, unleashing his lunacy all over the beat until he runs out of breath. This non-stop thrill ride could’ve easily gone on for another two minutes, though a full blown “Attak” like that could be dangerous to one’s health. Well, we wouldn’t have to worry about that, because we’re ninjas, so we’re really just looking out for you.

In any case, check out the tremendous tune above, and make sure to pre-order Rustie’s Green Language before it hits shelves on August 26th.

[Anthem] Riff Raff – How To Be The Man (Meaux Green Remix)

How To Be The Man (MEAUX GREEN REMiX) [FREE DL] @JODYHiGHROLLER @TheMeauxGreen

As a ninja here at TMN, I try to collectively talk about our music selections to reflect our eclectic taste in music. For the first time in a very long time, I feel that with today’s selection, I am allowed to point out one of my guilty pleasure artists – Riff Raff. Having just released his new album, “Neon Icon”, one could say that this ninja completely lost it.

Mad Decent beat maker and party starter, Meaux Green, just happened to trap it up a bit for my boy Riff Raff by taking on his song, “How To Be The Man”. Now, I have absolutely no idea what it means to be the man, but if I did I would assume this song is an accurate depiction as to would it would be like. Orlando native, Meaux Green, has a history of making us all turn things up a bit; we all rememeber his “Mosh Pit” remix for Flosstradamus, so when we his name came up on our feed today, we knew that we were about to enter a world of utter madness. Well ninjas, that’s exactly what happened. Meaux and Riff Raff gave us a new definition on “How To Be The Man” even though I still have no idea what that entails. Grab your free download and lose yo, mind.

[Hip-Hop] GoldLink – Ay Ay (Nanpa NOIR Remix)

Ay Ay (Nanpa NOIR Remix)

There’s something to be said about a remix that doesn’t try to do too much. All too often it seems like remixes strive to drastically differentiate themselves from the source material, and while that strategy can help a track stand out on its own two feet, it can also distract from the elements that made the original so great in the first place. 20 year old producer Nanpa NOIR understands these subtleties, and that’s exactly what makes their remix of GoldLink‘s “Ay Ay” so perfect.

A remix’s purpose is to improve upon the sound of the prototype, while also making sure it doesn’t get in its own way. Keeping much of the original intact, Nanpa’s rendition may not sound too different at first, but a closer listen reveals certain intricacies layered in warped production elements, providing the tune with a distinctive and more pronounced sonic identity. Managing to achieve the aforementioned balance of highlighting what we already love about the song, while also improving upon those same aspects, we’d like to hold this up as a shining example of exactly how to execute a remix.

Once you’re finished listening for yourself, make sure to download the track above, and check out Nanpa NOIR’s SoundCloud page for even more incredible remixes.

[Mashup] Flume – Insane (Feat. Kanye West) (White Panda Vocal Edit)

Insane (White Panda Vocal Edit)

Mashups can be a tricky art to master, and while we’ve become much more open to the idea of them in recent months, we still tend to approach them with a certain amount of skepticism. However, when you come across a song that features two of the most brilliant musicians in the world, it’s impossible to ignore. Geniuses that they are, The White Panda have taken it upon themselves to blend together the insanity of Kanye West with Flume‘s hit single, “Insane.” Utilizing verses from “Can’t Tell Me Nothing,” Kanye’s defiant boasts operate well over the elaborate, pulsating synthwork, while Moon Holiday‘s yearning background vocals seem to add a heightened sense of wistfulness and provide even more weight behind the lyrics. After listening to the track, we started to wonder what a true collaboration between these two gifted artists would actually sound like. Can someone get them in the studio together ASAP?

Download the single above, and stay tuned for more from The White Panda, as they plan to drop a new song every day this week.

Brian Cid Vs Schoolboy Q Ft. Kendrick Lamar – Collard Greens (Extinct Mix) [TMN PREMIERE]

BRIAN CID VS SCHOOLBOY Q FT KENDRICK LAMAR
COLLARD GREENS (EXTINCT MIX)

We don’t know about you guys, but regardless of whether or not it’s the weekend yet, we still get that itch to go out on Thursday nights. This inexplicable need to get out and dance has long since been understood by the dance club community as they regularly bring in top-notch talent on Thursdays, leaving you tired, yet quite content come Friday morning.

No stranger to the club scene, Big Apple native Brian Cid has been producing since the young age of 14. After realizing the best way to get his music heard by the masses was going to be in the clubs, he learned how to DJ after having support on his original material from artists like Luciano, Guy J, Stacey Pullen and more.

Today we’re bringing you a deep, ominous and delicious track from this up-and-coming artist.  Rife with industrial undertones, this dance-floor delight features pitched-down hip hop vocals from a few names you’ll probably recognize. After listening to this song a few times over, we decided to ask Cid a few choice questions to get some more insight. Check out what he had to say below:

TMN: What drew you to this track that made you decide to remix it?

I am in the Hip Hop scene as I work with a lot of underground Hip Hop artists in the NYC area. I’ve been hearing about Schoolboy Q for a while and after checking him out I felt he was a good option for me to snatch his vocal and build a full dancy deep house track around it. Pitch it down or freak it, as we say, and throw it in the dance floor and see what happens. Schoolboy is an underdog coming up from the underground scene, and I saw myself in him. It all worked out great.

TMN: How is this remix different from your other remixes and/or original productions?

A lot of things can go wrong when you mix Hip Hop and House. There is a fine line between corny and dope. I wanted to make sure I was in the dope side of the line, so I experimented with some pitched down vocal effects and screws. I don’t really do many vocal tracks, so when I do, I try to do something special with them. I wanted to keep it extra funky and impact. This remix was designed for the club.
