Azad Right
Enough Of You (Prod. By Sango, Atu & Dpat)

It’s been a hot minute since we’ve heard from LA-based Azad Right, but we’re not mad about it. Not one bit. He’s had his hands full with a few of our favorite artists, as he helps pave the way for one of the most impressive record labels in the game, Mind of a Genius. And, for that, we’re extremely grateful.

However, we won’t say that we haven’t missed his music because we most certainly have. Thankfully, he decided to step back into the vocal booth to not only drop some painfully honest bars, but to also lay down some back-up vocals as well. “Enough of You” brings a familiarity that we’ve come to know and love over the years, showcasing a dark and ominous soundscape and a lyrical window into Azad’s soul. It’s real. It’s raw. It’s what you can expect from him, time and time again.

You fucked the kid that introduced us
And he was best friends with your ex, that shit is fucked up
He said you was wack in the bed, it might be fucked up
But that’s how I knew he wasn’t lying…

Produced by Sango, Atu & Dpat, this tune is sure to delight fans who have been patiently waiting for Azad to release some more music. Hopefully, he’ll step away from the helm at M.O.A.G a little more frequently to hook us all up with something fresh.

Pat Lok – You Street

Pat Lok straight up rocks. He’s been an ace producer of infectious house tunes for a while now, and his collection of remixes speaks volumes with its success so far. The latest tune he’s dropped on us is a funky original, teeming with smooth synths and rocking percussion that could easily become a staple in your poolside playlist during the months ahead. There’s no shortage of grooving with Pat Lok, and “You Street” is a great example of that.

Klangstof – Island

It’s a moot point by now, but Mind of a Genius continues to push some of the best music. Their most recent signing, Klangstof, has finally followed up their debut tune with the ethereal beauty of “Island.” Something about this group is inherently magical, and their tunes help you to escape to a better place. The entire six and a half minutes of this song is absolutely immersive and spectacular. Don’t miss out their other recent release, “Amansworld,” either.

Kultur – White Door (Ft. Khary)

Shifting from his normal ambience, Kultur delivers a slick hip-hop tune featuring vocals from Khary. Hopefully there’s more of this in store from Kultur, because it works for him. Whether you’re entirely familiar with his normal material or not, “White Door” already is a standout for the French producer. He prides himself on mainly emotional pieces of work, but this new tune just feels fun and is an intriguing switch-up. It’s no secret that there’s a large amount of talented producers hailing from France, and Kultur is upholding his end of the deal big time.

Elohim – Sensations

Every new Elohim tune gets us more and more excited for her debut EP due out on May 20th. Even with an abundance of synth-pop artists out there, Elohim has continued to make her mark over the last year with stunning songs and an alluring, mysterious presence. “Sensations” feels more jubilant than most of her previous tunes, and it’s easy to see how she has been able to garner her popularity with ditties like this. She’s captivating, and we’re fidgeting in our seats just thinking about her debut project on the way.

pools – summer sunday (sisasa remix)

SISASA is in no hurry to be anywhere based on the relaxing tunes we’ve heard. Each of the three songs released so far is wrapped in a tranquil and simple atmosphere, and, somehow, SISASA has managed to transform pools into an an even more serene invention. Complexity and technicality is always appreciated, but constructing a minimal melody and altering a sample in such a way that SISASA has takes a specific and careful type of production that can easily be disregarded. This works though. And it works well. End your day right with this one.

[TMN Premiere] PACES – Work Me Out (Moonbase Commander Remix)

PACES-Work-Me-Out-2016

Work Me Out [ft. Rye Rye] (Moonbase Commander Remix)

Sydney based, genre-skirting producer Moonbase Commander seemingly bubbled up out of the ether with a clearly defined and polished sound on his collab with Cakes Da Killa for their 2015 single “Serve it Up”, which received quite the reputable slate of critical support when it first made the rounds. In the time since, the Australian artist’s been continuously honing that sound, with the recent release of the Southpaw EP on October Records, which only seemed to elevate the collective appetites of his listeners. So, when the Commander’s latest tune floated our way in the form of a remix for fellow TMN regulars PACES and their Rye Rye featuring single “Work Me Out”, we were like giddy cheerleaders before a pep rally.

On his latest record, Moonbase Commander trots out a hypnotically knocking kick-drum, fueled by alchemistic pads, before delving into a heap of two-step drum patterning which holds up Rye Rye’s flitty cypher as if it were resting on a bed of anthracite storm clouds. MBC’s bass-first soundscape toys with stadium-trap sized bass swells, gigantic drums and loopy synths; all pulled off with the confident swagger of an underground beatsmith and grace of an established veteran. Quite appetizing stuff really. Moonbase Commander’s remix comes as part of etcetc music‘s official remix package which is out this Friday (preorder on iTunes here). Just try not to get your lean on too hard and throw out your back to this one, and enjoy Moonbase Commander’s “Work Me Out” remix before anyone else above.

[Hip-Hop/Rap] Hoody Time – The Hotness EP

Hoody Time

One of hip-hops newer face, Hoody Time, is on a path to make his dreams come true. His new location of LA is just where he needs to be as he makes moves to get his name out in the open. He’s already started, and recently came out with his debut EP, The Hotness, that is beginning to turn some heads.

The Hotness is a collection of six singles that exemplify the emcee’s creative edge. Some of the tracks, including “The New Everything” and “Supreme Illitude” have that old-school flare that lovers of classic hip-hop will jive to. Other records like “Abandon” and “Little Dreamer” get more into the alternative meets independent sound that calls for skills that go beyond just making any old rap tune. Hoody Time is establishing himself as a true artist, with The Hotness being his first extended example of that. Look for him to release more singles in the future, under his own name, as well as through crossover collaborations. The Hotness is currently available for purchase on iTunes.

’The New Everything’
’The Hotness (feat. Reilly Comisar)’
’Supreme Illitude (feat. Sam Rothstein)’

[Electronic] Imad Royal – Down For Whatever Ft. Pell (Bronze Whale Remix)

Imad Royal
Down For Whatever Ft. Pell (Bronze Whale Remix)

It must have been a minute since we’ve heard anything new from Bronze Whale, but we can assure you that when they pop up in our feed, we’re listening. The guys’ latest work comes in the form of a remix of Imad Royal’s sensual track “Down For Whatever,” and it marks an interesting and pleasant deviation from the Austin duo’s normal routine.

If you’re familiar with Bronze Whale, this remix is probably going to catch you a bit off guard. As they distance themselves from their signature coalescing of future and trap-esque influence, they electrify the original with a new zest. Their production proves flawless as their unique sound surrounds and bolsters Royal’s smooth vocals, prompting listeners to zone in on both the original’s detail as well as the crisp new details of the remix.

[Hip-Hop] Kaiydo – Lottery

Kaiydo
Kaiydo
Lottery

So far, Kaiydo has delivered three tracks (one of which we recently covered) that span a wide range of hip-hop influence, and the fourth, “Lottery,” continues this precedent with a smooth blend of all of the previous work from his Colors & Sounds project. Even with a more restrained and mellow production, Kaiydo freely fires off bar after bar with an effortless ease that eclipses his burgeoning career with a sense of professional proficiency. Not only that, he has the tendency to lay down hooks that inherently get caught up in your head after the first listen, and that is certainly prevalent when it comes to “Lottery.”

This Florida rapper has a lot going on for him, and he’s only just beginning. However you approach the up-and-comers in hip-hop, you can’t deny their work ethic and ability to craft something noteworthy. If you’re wanting to compile some intriguing new artists in the realm of rap, Kaiydo should be at the top of your list.
