LEFTI – Stand Up feat. John Pugh [TMN Premiere]

We hope you have your dancing shoes on, because LEFTI brought something super funky into the dojo. Featuring John Pugh, the extra groovy single “Stand Up” is here. In this premiere you get a first listen to one of the most lively tunes of the Summer.

“Stand Up” will get you on your feet in no time. It sounds as thought it came out at the height of the disco era, while also coming out at the height of house music’s popularity. In mixing the best of both worlds, LEFTI created a timeless piece of music that’s ready for anyone. You don’t even have to like electronic music to fall head over heals in love with this tune. Stream it today and drink plenty of water, because you’ll be breaking a sweat moving to this.

[Indie Dance] We The Kids – Billion

We The Kids
Billion

A new duo out of Sweden has quickly become one of our favorite acts and they have only released on song. “Billion” is enough to do that and you’ll see, or rather hear, why in a moment. We The Kids took a strong first step with their debut track to set themselves up for big success.

Released on Tenacity Records, “Billion” is an indie dance treasure, taking influence from pop, future, R&B and more. It’s a magnificent melting pot of bright sounds and lovable melodies that come just in time for the Summer season. Their odd, but intriguing attitude comes through in their sound; it will suck you in and never let go. Stream their debut single today and stay tuned for more work from them soon.

[Electronic] Drake – Passionfruit (A&G Remix) [Andrew Tejada Cover]

Drake
Passionfruit (A&G Remix) [Andrew Tejada Cover]

With the recent Spotify boom and the decline of Soundcloud, the cover/remix package is becoming quite the go-to. One artist who has recently hopped on that with some success is A&G, who remixed Drake’s “Passionfruit” with the help of vocalist Andrew Tejada.

The tropically driven remix by A&G has a throwback sound to when the sub-genre was first circulating. It makes for a nice nostalgic Summer song. It’s got a chill vibe to it, but that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t make for a good record to get a party going. Dance-able and vivid, this new “Passionfruit” will be eaten up by party goers all season long. A&G released this one as a free download, so there’s no real reason to sleep on it.

[Indie Dance] Hymner feat. Bast – Apart

When a debut single blow us away, we tend to get extremely excited in the dojo. This just happened with the Swedish band Hymner who dropped their song “Apart” with Bast. The indie dance vibes on this one are unlike most things we come across, making it just the right first step for the group.

Emerging with “Apart” was the perfect move. Us and other fans alike are enjoying this one as much as we can and thinking about just what is to come next from Hymner. They have established their sound in part, but given the myriad of influences on this, we’re going to guess they’ll surprise us in the future with something else that isn’t anything like the debut single. In due time the full scope of the project will be revealed, but for now take time to fully envelop yourself in “Apart.”

[Indie Dance] Phil Good – I Miss You

PHIL GOOD
I Miss You

If Phil Good ever stopped making music, we’d miss him. We’d miss him so much in fact, we’d go outside the window of his house and sing his new song “I Miss You” despite being utterly atrocious singers. Hopefully we don’t have to do that and we can leave the singing to Phil.

“I Miss You” is Phil’s best track yet, which is saying a lot given his powerful, but still small catalog. His indie-pop meets electronic sound is just what the radio needs; a genuinely good song that wasn’t made specifically with the radio in mind. It feels like an indie track, but it’s so much more than that. Phil always manages to keep his sights on the underground while managing to release works that have crazy potential. Only time will tell just how high Phil can go, but we’re philling good about him… okay bye now, just listen to “I Miss You” and enjoy.
