[Chill-Step] We Are Twin – True Love (White Cliffs Remix)

We Are Twin
True Love (White Cliffs Remix)

While much of electronic music’s rising stars are cashing in on the influx of fist-pumping teens and college students flocking towards ‘big-room’ EDM tents at festivals and larger than life, build-up wielding stadium sized tunes; some purveyors of the widespread genre are busy crafting forward thinking, melodious arrangements and expressions. Such a case study is debuting beatsmith, White Cliffs. Rather than assaulting his listeners with the same production kits used within every inch of the mainstream dance community, White Cliffs’ remix of We Are Twin‘s “True Love” is a breath of freshly composed air which receives its luster from a slick two-step drum inflection, subdued high-end percussion and just an utterly gorgeous vocal from We Are Twins. For a premiere track, White Cliffs’ subtle use of vocal chopping resonates across like a true professional musician, keeping the original’s indelible energy intact while fully communicating an educated albeit understated electronic musical point of view. This one can be swiped as a free download here, and we’re highly suggesting you do.

60+ Songs to Prepare for Treasure Island Music Festival in SF, 10/18-19 [Event Preview + Playlist]

timf2014-sfweekly-fullpgLineups for major music festivals often boast 100+ artists, which although in theory is a great concept, can end up being overwhelming and frustrating when you realize the impossibility of seeing every act on the bill. San Francisco’s Treasure Island Music Festival, a collaboration between Noise Pop and Another Planet Entertainment, provides one of the few exceptions to this conundrum electing to go with fewer artists and alternating sets at only two stages. Having attended last year, we found this to be a genius, albeit seemingly obvious, solution making the experience far more relaxed for festival-goers without sacrificing any quality in the music. Aside from the unique arrangement, the backdrop of Treasure Island overlooks both the Bay and Golden Gate bridges and has one of the more stunning sunsets the Bay Area has to offer. For anyone who will be attending this year, we also highly recommend checking out the non-stop Silent Disco stage courtesy Silent Frisco.

To help you all prepare for what should be an amazing weekend of music, we’ve put together a massive playlist including every single artist on the TIMF lineup because, with no overlapping sets, you will actually have the opportunity to see them all. Whether you’ve already got your ticket, are still on the fence or can’t make it this year, we hope this serves as a fun, introduction to a dynamic collection of musicians. One and two-day passes for Treasure Island Music Festival are still available so, if you like what you hear below, grab your tickets HERE.

[Progressive House] Moiez Feat. Larcy – Illusions (Original Mix)

Moiez feat. LARCY
Illusions (Original Mix) [Radio Edit]

There’s nothing more refreshing than waking up on a Sunday morning to a nice cup of coffee, headphones over your ears, and an uplifting new original from Moiez and LARCY to help us get through the rest of our day. Despite what anyone says, (good) Progressive House will always have a special place in our hearts because it always takes us back to our favorite festival moments where we shared the PLUR with everyone around. Moiez just gave us an entirely new reason to fall back in love with this genre in his latest original, “Illusions”, which features the beautiful vocals from LARCY. Her stunning voice adds depth and meaning to this powerful instrumental in which she guides us through an illusory world of shear inspiration. Moiez’s stellar production gives us the piano breaks we crave for and the breakdowns we long for, so Tiesto better watch out because “Illusions” just might give him a run for his 2010-2011 run. With early support coming from dance musics favorite selfie duo, The Chainsmokers, Moiez and LARCY are well on their way to success and this song is proof they’re headed in the right direction. So sit back, relax, and prepare for the goosebumps to surface across every inch of your body.

Odesza Ft. Zyra
Say My Name (Luke Shay Remix)

We know, we know…there are at least 1,000 different versions of this song going around the internet. But hey! That’s what happens when a remix contest pops up on producers radars. Now that the official remixes have made their wave, up and coming artists like, Luke Shay, are biting at the bit to show the world how to take things to the next level. We here at TMN are big supporters of Luke Shay and we love how he is able to think outside of the box with Progressive House productions. Whether it be his Adventure Club “Wonder” remix or his most recent official remix of Jaymes Young’s “Habits Of My Heart”, Shay just knows how to infect us with a serious case of progressive feels.

Today, we are happy to share his entry for the “Say My Name” remix contest and it will guarantee blow your socks off. As soon as you press play, you are welcomed with a gorgeous piano intro that effortlessly progresses into a flawless chord progression full of emotion. At some point, Shay throws a curve ball with some trap-style snares and blends it perfectly with his signature synth breakdowns and Zyra’s mesmerizing voice. This has to be one of our favorite remixes and what better way to start your Friday off than with Luke Shay? If you dig this remix, be sure to vote for him here!

Trick, Henry Fong, Eric Prydz

Hey there, ninjas. Are you sitting at home, slowly putting together your Halloween playlists? Well, if you’re anything like us, you’re probably doing just that, and we have a tune that’s sure to please the audible appetites of whatever dance floor you’re getting ready to own.

About a year ago, we posted Koyote’s original version of this, labeling it as one of the better mashups we’ve come across. Well, just in time for our favorite holiday, this Santa Barbara based DJ/Producer has thrown up his “REDUX” version, which makes good use of the “Scream” stems provided on Splice. As most of you know, Henry Fong and J-Trick are some of the first big artists to release their project file on the new sharing site, and producers, including Koyote, jumped at the chance to work with it.

Garnering support from Laidback Luke, TJR, Tommie Sunshine, DJs from Mars, and more, “Scream for Another Brick in the Wall (Koyote ‘REDUX’ Edit’) is a meticulous blend of different songs, including the legendary vocals from “Another Brick in the Wall.” It’s infectiously energetic, not only providing an unavoidable call to get up and boogie, but also ensuring that the crowd will be singing along to those unforgettable lyrics.

Big ups, Koyote.

[Deep-House] Dirty South – Unbreakable (SNBRN Remix)

Dirty South
Unbreakable (SNBRN Remix)

There might not be another artist who carries with them the skill and accessibility to showcase a sound that has dwelled for years in after-hours parties, warehouse venues and Europe in general, but L.A.’s SNBRN has brought an incredibly adept brand of deep, G and indie fueled House music to the masses like few other U.S. musicians could ever dream of. The deep-dance maestro returns to TMN with a highly refreshing take on house legend Dirty South’s “Unbreakable”, which has already earned the coveted support of Pete Tong on one of dance music’s leading resources, BBC Radio 1. SNBRN’s glossed the original tune up with a club leaning tool kit including a soulful, melodic, classic house piano chord progression with the deep swells of kicking bass that have permeated his addictive remixes since we first had the pleasure of gracing our monitors with the SNBRN sound. Let’s kick this Friday morning off with a little underground house varnish from one of our favorite producers around. Get your dancing sneakers.

[Future Trop] Lorde – Team (Autograf Remix)

Lorde
Team (Autograf Remix)

The last time we heard a good remix of Lorde’s, “Team”, was when Flume unleashed his absurdly addictive rendition that sent surging waves across nearly every festival around the globe. Now that much time has passed since that legendary track permeated the saturated bubble in dance music, we decided to share with you a lovely new Future Tropical remix from our guys over at Autograf. After preparing our Pina Coladas (to set the mood, of course), we pressed play on this magical number and were introduced to a much softer, more mellow side of Autograf that has every muscle in our body limp as a noodle. Smoldering in wavey synths, echoing melodies, and spicey drum patters, Autograf took this Lorde anthem and loosened things up to a much smoother level. We’re convinced this one has the ability to send us straight into a comatose in paradise, so prepare to escape the day away thanks to Autograf. If you dig these ambient vibes then pick up a free download while you’re at it
