Sander Van Doorn & Firebeatz
Guitar Track (Sam Feldt Remix) [FREE DOWNLOAD]
2014 must be the year of the sax and Sam Feldt just gave us more the reason to love the instrument even more with his melodic house rendition of Sander Van Doorn & Firebeatz’ electro house banger, “Guitar”. The Amsterdam producer took the guitar melody from the original and completely transformed this track into one of the most tropical feel good songs of the Summer.
Starting us off with a congo bassline and groovy saxophone melody to get us up and moving, Sam Feldt takes these progressive elements and intricately fuses them together in the most beautiful way possible. The natural atmospheric resonance of this remix is unlike anything we’ve heard in a long time. In all honesty, there isn’t too much on the internet that can beat this right now, so do yourself a favor and grab your free download and keep this one on repeat for the rest of the day.
Pistol Pump Funk (Single) [MUSIC VIDEO OUT NOW]
Vermont-based duo Theo Klein and Trey Schibli, who craft luscious indie-pop under the guise of argonaut&wasp sent us over their newest record “Pistol Pump Funk” along with its official music video, and we just couldn’t shake their uniquely infectious sound. Only the pair’s second official release, “Pistol Pump Funk” rides a gorgeous sonic wave between indie-pop & rock and funk inspired chords amongst percussive elements typically found on club and dance productions; but the way in which their sounds are minced and layered together is nothing short of breathtaking. With the Summer heat wave directly upon us, this one will surely function as a breezy anthem to accompany many a pool party with their delicate balance of earthly tones and future electronics. Be sure to hit the jump for argonaut&wasp’s official “Pistol Pump Funk” music video which joyfully plays like a colorful and upbeat adventure through old saloons and modern streets scrawled with urban art. argonaut&wasp will be joining Lemâitre for a few East Coast dates, so be sure to check below, and don’t miss the chance to catch them in your home city.

I’m not going to lie, the main reason I jumped at the chance to review this track is because i’ve been away for 6 months in Australia and this song is called ‘Koala’ – it seemed fitting.
Call it fate or call it coincidence that this just happened to come along as I made my return to rainy ol’ England, but either way this tune is so good it seems as though the stars aligned just for me.
Holland’s own Oliver Heldens is no stranger to the EDM scene, his tune ‘Gecko’ dropped last year and drew a huge amount of attention – reaching #2 in the Beatport chart. Some of this attention came from fellow countryman Tiësto, who snapped him up and signed him onto his label at the tender age of 19. Since then ‘Gecko’ has had a reboot and was re-released last month with the vocal services of Becky Hill. A track which is already being proclaimed ‘Hottest Record In The World’ by the BBC’s Zane Lowe.
This time round Heldens has brought us ‘Koala’, another animal themed banger which oozes that melodic, yet plenty heavy, Euro-House style. Starting off somewhat deceivingly sounding almost disco-inspired, this tune ends up going in harder than ‘Gecko’, straying more into the realms of Electro House. This is to be expected from Heldens, his sound is all things House and seems to wander off wherever it wants, into Electro, Deep, Progressive – wherever the Dutchman wants to take it. Thankfully, Heldens accomplishes this effortlessly and the result is really quite something.
It’s early days for this young producer, but he’s already making some serious waves. I for one am very excited to see where he ends up. One things for sure – he’s going places. Give ‘Koala’ just a few minutes of your time and i’m sure you’ll be as hooked as I am.
Do you ever catch yourself searching for the perfect song to end the night to? Well look no further! Club owner, producer, and DJ, Will Eastman, went ahead and did the justice of adding the best ‘turn down’ songs to his 4 A.M. Eternal Mix series. You could say he’s a jack of all trades, as Will Eastman has done everything from being a museum specialist and historian at the Smithsonian, to playing at the Virgin Mobile Freefest. I’m really loving his approach on this mix with all of the soothing house and techno. Most DJs nowadays want to provide you with something to get hype to, but I prefer Will Eastman’s approach of giving you the perfect mix to relax and end your night to!

Say The Words To You (option4 Remix)
One of our most treasured finds, burgeoning dance producer option4 returns to grace the hallowed pages of TMN with perhaps his most groove-laden, intoxicating remix to date; which behind his viral dance modifications of Great Good Fine OK’s “You’re The One For Me”, Elizabeth Rose’s “The Good Life” and most recently, Donnel Jones’ “U Know What’s Up” is saying quite a lot. option4 has taken James Curd & Luke Million’s new single “Say The Words To You” to a textured soundscape only the Denver based, genre bending producer could. Kicking off behind a snappy four-four clap as opposed to the standard issue kick-drum, we were only moments into this revision before being aurally hooked to a light but soul consuming synth line that works as an addictive focal point for most of the track. Rather than utilizing an often times formulaic house route of the classic: intro/groove/break/groove/outro structuring in his compositions, option4′s remix plays like a story of sorts, dipping into chunky low ends, uplifting hi-hats, entrancing vocal work and hip-hop hooks all the while masquerading as a straightforward club tune. option4′s remix of “Say The Words To You” comes as a part of a congruently titled EP featuring remixes from Yolanda Be Cool, DCUP & more and seeing as we’re nothing short of an Old Faithful geyser’s worth of musical compliments, we implore you to give this one just six minutes of your day. If you’re really crunching to this one, snag the high quality copy on Beatport as well.
Well ninjas, hopefully all of you survived your 4th of July holiday weekend.

Lost Ft. Cat Lewis
Free n Losh put out a new track, “Lost”, and it is the spitting image of having a nice margarita on the beach. This beautiful track combines tropical house and chill trap in a way we aren’t used to hearing. With it’s beautiful guitar, and Cat Lewis’ soothing vocals, this song is going to be in every summer playlist. This song was released on an upcoming record label, Next Wave, which seems to care more about donating money, than it does receiving money for tracks. My only complaint about this song is that it’s too fun to sing along to. I’m sure it will have a similar effect on you as well!
