Jar (feat. Brukout)
Would you take a free “Jar” if it was offered to you? What if it came straight from the studio of the one and only Jace Mek? Chances are, you’ll take it. Released on Uprise Music, “Jar” is a free download from one of dance music’s most creative young talents.
Jace Mek isn’t slowing down, in fact, he’s turning things up. Time and time again he brings us off the wall records whose experimental nature are still highly accessible. He’s got his own dark style, which is embodied by this single. Featuring Brukout, “Jar” isn’t just the work of the Los Angeles producer but also of one of Jamaica’s finest. Together they work in conjunction to make “Jar” one of 2017’s weirdest, but coolest tracks. Like we said before, you can get this one as a free download.
As we inch closer to Miami Music Week, all the bangers are coming out. Producers are pushing out the party records they’ve been holding in and many of those are being released for free. Today we share with you twelve of those records, as well as a cool down mix to get your Friday popping. Works this week come to us from the likes of ARMNHMR, Jeremiah Red, Havok Roth, Arius, NGHTMRE and many more. As you go through our selections you’ll encounter some future bass, some electro, dubstep and trap. That’s not all, but all you need to know for now. Before we let you dive in, just remember one very important thing as you go through your weekend: #Danceirresponsibly.
Back in 2016 we ended the year by getting the inside scoop from the sibling duo Shermanology. They had just released their single “Silly Games” and we wanted to see just what it was about, as well as just how have they kept up creating great records for so long. “Silly Games” was no sign of them slowing down.
Today, we share with you not only the song again, but it’s video counterpart. The video does not let the song down. With a funky, infomercial meets meme style video, Shermanology deliver visuals that share the fun spontaneity that their music exudes. It’s not totally out there to the point where you’re like what am I watching; in fact, it’s weirdness is tastefully done to the point that you’re going to watch it with pleasure a few times so you don’t miss any little detail. Check out the video below and if you haven’t purchased “Silly Games” yet, do so today.
Minute ft Sophia Black
After the release of “Minute” on Enhanced Music, we wanted to get together with its creator, No Way Back, to see just what makes the Los Angeles producer tick. We’re loving the soothing vibes of his work and had to get a behind the scenes look at where he has come from.
No Way Back is one producer you need to know if you don’t already. Anthony Pisano is doing things right bringing great music to the table with a signature style that will identify him for years to come if he keeps up with it. AFter only being on the scene for around a year, he’s managed to make a lot of headway, so we wanted to give you a look behind the project with the current interview. While you read through our concise Q&A, listen to his the collaboration with Sophia Black on “Minute.”
TMN: We love your mix of 90’s influenced R&B and house! How did your sound come about?
NWB: I grew up listening to R&B, soul, and hip-hop in the 90’s. When I first discovered Daft Punk it all came together for me. I realized that blending feel good R&B/soul elements with dance music was my sound.
TMN: What are some R&B acts that have influenced your sound?
NWB: The Weeknd, TLC, Aaliyah, Cashmere Cat, Kaytranada, and Miguel are a few that influence my sound.
TMN: When you’re not producing or touring, what are you up to?
TMN: Any new releases coming up you’d like to tell us about?
NWB: I just released my new single called “Minute” featuring Sophia Black a few weeks ago. I have a lot of music finished and ready to go so it’s about figuring out the next release date. If I had to guess I would say probably April or May. The plan is to put out another single followed by an EP so I’m currently working on that right now.
TMN: Any acts you’re excited to check out during Miami Music Week?
NWB: MMW is always an inspiring week for me. I always go back to the studio after that week with so many new ideas. I’m definitely excited to see Magician. I haven’t seen many line ups yet but I get inspiration from so many different genres and artists right now I’m just excited for the whole week.
2017 has been full of amazing free downloads so far. Each week when we gather in the dojo to put together our Friday Party Playlist, it’s always tough narrowing songs down to just around a dozen. You need party tracks, so we make sure to deliver time and time again. This week we have just that, a dozen songs for your ears and your digital library, if you so choose to download them. Not only do we have our usual collection, but we decided to throw in a little bonus for you. At the end of the list is a cool mix by Seattle DJ Tollefson that you can also happen to download for free. Before you get to her, check out records from the likes of HXV, Jinco, Meaux Green, Kompany x Wooli, Sullivan King x Nightowls, Destructo, PatrickReza and more! Most importantly, #danceirresponsibly.
Two of our friends, Two Friends, have finally released their EP after leaving fans in anticipation. Out Of Love was released by SOURCE/Spinnin Records complete with three singles, including collaboration with MAX and Cosmos & Creature.
The duo started with out with the release of one single, then another and the last coming out with the full EP launch a few days ago. This means you might already be privy to the great songs “Pacific Coast Highway” and the title track, both of which have already gotten plenty of love, with more to come. They differ in style, but not in quality. The third song “Mona Lisa Eyes” is more along the lines of “Pacific Coast Highway,” sharing a house sound that is both upbeat and fun. The full EP is well worth the time and price if you’re looking to get a copy for yourself from a digital service.
