[Deep-House] Thousand Fingers – Take Me Down (Loulou Players Remix) [TMN Premiere]

Thousand Fingers
Take Me Down (LouLou Players Remix)

From the moment  Jérôme Denis -or Loulou Players as we’ve come to know him as both an artist and label boss-  unleashes that pulsating, subterranean kick-drum,  which came careening through our monitors with the amount of force of a raging waterfall, we knew we were in for a proper underground house romper. Taking the stems from Thousand Fingers, (whom you most likely have heard via his other project as one-half of the almighty Paradisko) and his debut single “Down”, Denis has added another brilliant official remix to a burly and pristine dance catalog. Both Loulou Players and Loulou Records‘ entire stable have for years displayed a fondness for the rough-n-tumble analog bass sounds associated with the most thumping  tech-, deep- and G-House, and that aural aesthetic shines through brightly on his revamping of “Down”. Loulou Players rides a distinct line between dark atmospherics and accessible, contagious bounce; tactfully pinning a cathartic bassline to Thousand Fingers’ wonderfully malleable stems which both keeps the original’s soul intact while reshaping it into an underground monster. And who can resist that pitched down, and desolately hypnotic vocal loop? Not us. We’ve been hearing Thousand Fingers’ original record and this thumping remix in the clubs for months, and it was high time we got to bestow it upon our lovely readers.

Thousand Fingers’ debut EP Down is set to release on December 14th via High Above the Ground, which includes the aforementioned Loulou Players remix, Thousand Fingers’ original and another revision via Mexican techno bender Mijo. For now however, you can stream Loulou Players’ remix in the form of a ‘TMN Premiere’ before anyone else.

[Nu-disco] Lenno – Fever (Feat. Benson)

Fever (Feat. Benson)

Lenno is a 20-year-old producer from Finland. In 2015 he released a string of constant hits and played over 20 international shows. In other words, this young artist is breaking through and you don’t want to miss his new release. I love Lenno’s music because he can take serious musical aspects and blend it into an overall fun pop sound. “Fever” is his the single that features nu-disco rhythms and a catchy vocal part from the singer, Benson.  Check it out!

[Club/House] Martin Solveig – « +1 » (feat. Sam White) (Blonde Remix)

Martin Solveig
« +1 » (feat. Sam White) [Blonde remix]

We’ve been right in tune with Bristol’s hottest house pair, Blonde,  and their steadily expanding slate of releases for over a year now -and for completely good reason. Since the moment they stormed onto the underground dance landscape with the backing of vaunted dance imprint FFRR, we were hooked on their bouncy, future-tipping take on that epic, U.K. club-house sound. Today, the U.K. power-house (get it?) returns with a tasteful remix of Martin Solveig’s most recent single “« +1 »”, and within its first four-bars we knew we were consuming another beautiful Blonde tune. A peanut-buttery thick kick-drum bursts from the shadows immediately while Blonde’s recognizable pad work and carefully cut vocal chops fill in the rest of the intro. Of course, we wouldn’t be writing about this one if there wasn’t more, and oh is there. Blonde wraps a craftily swung deep-house bassline around understated shuffling hi-hats and booming sub-bass for one of the stickiest hooks you’ll have the pleasure of consuming this month, and when the deft duo lets that original vocal out to play, it’s all hands on deck. Kick off the last day of November with another one of Blonde’s wonderfully executed remixes above, and try not to shake your hips.

Filous talks Touring, Musical Roots, and Working with James Hersey [TMN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW]


Austrian producer Filous is a reminder that age is not a factor of stardom; now a recurrent theme within the musicsphere. He has an impressive repertoire under his belt, amassing nearly 100,000 Soundcloud followers and well over 6,000,000 plays on his catalog. For anyone, let alone an 18-year-old, that is impressive.

For those of you who haven’t experienced his live show, know that the multi-instrumentalist plays effortlessly on stage mixing a combination of backing tracks with several instruments he taught himself. His first tour ever, with RAC, Big Data, and more, is also his first time playing for the public, with his NYC stop being his 6th live performance ever. We had the chance to catch up with him after just that performance, at the legendary Webster Hall.

TMN: How has tour been going so far? I hear this is your first time both on tour?

It has been very surreal for me. It’s my first time touring and playing in the U.S. Touring in a tour bus has been pretty incredible. I’ve been watching music documentaries and following artists for a really long time so now to be in that position myself is completely surreal. It has been awesome too because I’ve been traveling with so many professional people with so much experience and advice to offer, it’s be a really great opportunity.

3AM ft. Katie Herzig (filous Remix)

TMN: Tell me about your roots, how did you shape your particular style?

I’ve been learning instruments since I was 10 years old. The first instrument I [learned] was bass and then after that guitar, keyboard, flute, harmonica etc. We were thinking about how were could do this live, I had the idea of just doing it the way we created the songs, me jamming on the guitar and then creating a beat to it.

[Progressive] ATB – Ecstasy (ARMNHMR & DATHAN Flip)

Ecstasy (ARMNHMR & DATHAN Flip)

Here’s a track for some Monday motivation. It’s almost a guarantee that magic happens everytime ARMNHMR and DATHAN go in the studio together. These guys can cook up something amazing, evident in the success of their remixes “Gold Dust”, “Disarm You” and “Secrets”. They decided to join forces once again to put a spin on a major throwback tune, ATB‘s “Ecstacy”, and definitely did it justice.

The infectious melody by the vocals are accompanied by these soaring synth stabs. The dynamic outfit of the track will provide an adrenaline overdose, most apparent in the numerous different drops in the track. If you’re a fan of dance music, this will definitely be nostalgic and refreshing at the same time. It’s intriguing to see progressive dance elements from different times fuse together.

Colleagues – Talk It Out (Branded James Remix) [TMN PREMIERE]

Talk It Out (Branded James Remix)

We first became enamoured with the playful, summery, electro-pop nature of Swedish band Colleagues back in 2013, after we came across their highly infectious tune “Visits.” Since then, they’ve had a myriad of successful releases, and the latest, “Talk it Out,” comes off their much-anticipated debut EP release Visits.

Today we’re excited to bring you a tasty remix of that aforementioned tune, which comes all the way from The Golden Gate City, by up-and-coming producer Branded James. These two acts had previously crossed paths a few years back when James dialed up an interpretation of their track “Parents House.” Since then, they’ve apparently kept in touch, providing us with this groovy little premiere you’re listening today.

Flipping the shimmering synth-pop tune into a lovely house rendition, this San Fran resident has outfitted it with a sultry bassline, danceable percussion, and carefully extracted samples. While the warm-weather vibes from those high pitched iconic synths are gone, we’re still left with a beautiful connection to the original through the pensive nature of the vocal delivery.

Keep tabs on everything Colleagues and Branded James by following them on SoundCloud.
