Next- Too Close (shmallen Edit)
Everyone needs 90′s R&B in their life. It’s a simple fact. Shmallen understands this, so he righteously revamped Next‘s ’97 classic, Too Close, into a lush, dance worthy track that sheds new light on this throwback sound and brings it into 2015 in a big way. Aptly tagged as SoundCloud as “booty,” this remix is just as much a part of the club as it is the bedroom, and Shmallen wasted no time in squeezing out an essential groove for your hump day. If you weren’t planning on feeling sexy today, you might want to go ahead and change your plans, because Shmallen just rewrote your evening with his newest tune.
They Don't Know (Justin Jay Remix)
While big room and progressive house have dominated the EDM scene since its explosion, the underground is beginning to slip its way into the spotlight of major festivals and media outlets. Claude Von Stroke’s DirtyBird Records just recently celebrated their 10 year anniversary of being a leader amongst forward-thinking labels and is home to some of the scenes most promising talent. 22-year-old producer, Justin Jay, was taken under the wing of Dirtybird not too long ago and has developed his own impressive career in a rather short time. He continues to surprise fans with every move he makes and is set up for a monumental year with a secured spot on Holy Ship! and an forthcoming EP on Pet Recordings.
Justin Jay thought it was appropriate to bring out his darker side to fans with his first remix of the year as he takes on the UK’s Disciples‘ “They Don’t Know.” Storming in with a whirlwind of gritty bass shivers, spine-tingling synth chords, and conniving vocal manipulation, the LA prodigy exhibits what true imagination exists in his musical brain. Although this remix does not accommodate to the cheerful crowd, Justin Jay is sure to expose open-minded fans to a world they have yet to travel into. The remix will be released on February 22nd via Pete Tong’s FFRR Records.

You may or may not have heard of Chet Porter, but trust me, you want to take a listen to this. Stripping the Zedd hit single “Stay The Night” into bare bones, Chet Porter incorporated his electronica-based signature into the tune. A light future trap beat is used to accentuate the bold synth, creating an uplifting vibe supported by the chipmunked vocals. The feel-good approach and the complexity of the track almost resemble the sound of Tennyson, in which both of their music have the ability to have you completely tuned in with full attention. Unexpected vocal samples and loud synth will put you on the edge of your seat throughout the whole track, and you’ll be wondering why it has ended so soon.
Holla at the talented Canadian producer and grab a free download of the track here! His music deserves way more attention and we all know it!

Tuesday (The Golden Pony Remix)
NYC indie-house craftsmen The Golden Pony stormed the blogosphere (specifically this one) in 2014 with a string of Hype Machine dominating disco painted remixes and originals. Today our favorite afro sporting dance ninjas return to TMN for the first time in 2015 with a straight shot to the clubs in the form of a remix for ILOVEMAKONNEN‘s inescapable Drake collab “Tuesday”. TGP deftly blends the original’s slightly off-key vocal sample with perfectly syncopated drums -including a garagey dose of popping snare, shuffling hi-hats along with a rightly swung deep bassline to induce a surefire hip-wiggle from its listener. About the new remix, the duo state: “We wanted to keep the original chorus of the song in tact so people would have something to sing along with, and then smash them in the face with a huge thick bass in the drop”. If there’s any opposition to that statement, we’d love to hear from them. In the mean time, stream The Golden Pony’s “Tuesday” remix above and snag a free download here. Did you catch that we posted this one on a Tuesday?… something must be going up.
