Nas
Life's A Bitch feat. AZ (Free n Losh Remix)

Successfully remixing a song from one of the greatest rap albums of all time is no easy task, but Free n Losh prove it is possible with their latest take on Nas‘s classic “Life’s a Bitch.” The talented Canadian production duo replace the original instrumental with a vibrant bass-line, smooth piano and various soul samples. During the legendary chorus, Free n Losh layer a high-pitched portamento synth reminiscent of the G-Funk era. As a result, the song ends up sounding a bit like if the Illmatic anthem had west-coast production, with a splash of young Kanye West‘s soul sample skills. Check it out above and head to their Facebook page for a free download.

Train – Hey Soul Sister (SMLE Remix) [TMN PREMIERE]

Train
Hey Soul Sister (SMLE Remix)

Here at TMN, we are passionate about sharing the music that brings our ears happiness with our viewers. Just the same, we are devoted to exposing those shrouded artists with unforeseen music that is just waiting to be heard. These hidden treasures are what always seem to quench our music thirst.

As of recent SMLE made their way onto the music map, and you better believe we didn’t fail to notice. After catching our attention with their cover of Michael Buble’s rendition of Nina Simone’s original “Feeling Good,” we have kept our eyes glued for new releases.

As music bloggers, we are lucky enough to be able to watch artists develop in both their success and their sound. From a more personal point-of-view, and having been introduced to SMLE’s work since day uno, this brand new release of theirs is quite a treat for myself as it captures their growth. Taking on Train’s pop hit, “Hey Soul Sister,” SMLE feeds your ears illuminating melodies from start to end.

As you may remember from TMN’s previous coverage of SMLE, the guys like to incorporate live instrumentals into their productions. Throughout the remix you’ll notice colorful guitar lines in addition to the glittering synths that pulls the whole piece together to become something that is truly one of its own kind.

[Electronic] Anna Of The North – Sway (The Chainsmokers Remix)

Sway (The Chainsmokers Remix)(Free DL)

For those of you who may have first caught wind of The Chainsmokers through “Selfie” (and who blames you), you may not know that the duo got their first following in the industry by producing remixes of some of the most eclectic group of indie artists in the market today. They were some listener’s first introductions to Say Lou Lou, ASTR, and Banks. Now that the two are on two bigger and grander things like XM Radio shows, multimillion dollar recording deals, and creators of the song that nearly broke Youtube, they decided to take a nostalgic trip back to their indie roots and try out a new remix. Luckily for us, they picked up TMN-favorite Anna Of The North and her single “Sway” and bring her into the spotlight. The Norwegian dream pop starlet gets her angelic voice reinforced by the Chainsmokers’ outstanding production which is quite honestly a match made in heaven. AOTN was our best kept secret, but it seems like she will be ruling the airwaves sooner than we previously thought thanks to this long-anticipated remix by two of the industry’s best.

God's Whisper (Flosstradamus & Aryay Remix)

After teasing this epic collaboration on their Instagram two weeks ago, Chicago’s Flosstradamus have let loose their Aryay-assisted remix of the talented Raury‘s “God’s Whisper,” one of the strongest songs of the year. Raury’s folk-leaning original makes this an unlikely track for Floss to take on, but the end result is enormous serving as yet another testament to the versatility of the production duo and fellow Chi-town native Aryay. This one is a true testament to the growing cross-genre collaboration in music feeling like a triumphant clash of two potent youth movements. Stream, and grab a free download, above. In case you missed it, also make sure to check out our exclusive interview with Flosstradamus here.

[House/Garage] Eric David – Walked Outta Heaven [TMN Premiere]

Walked Outta Heaven (Original Mix)

After first appearing on the pages of TMN through a jacking garage remix of Sam Smith’s “La La La”, budding Denver based House producer Eric David has returned with yet another club gem, “Walked Outta Heaven”. One of his first originals in months and a TMN premiere, “Walked Outta Heaven” bursts out of the gate behind a sliced vocal sample from the congruently titled Jagged Edge tune before Eric David’s clear grasp on compositional dance nuance comes shining through in the form of an incredibly lush and groovy piano melody. Furthermore, his percussive elements on this one including shuffled hi hats and an expansive drum kit meld together like melting butter on toast resulting in a refreshing and utterly loopable dancefloor spark. It’s always wonderful to see another shade of a producer who’s clearly not bound to one sub-genre of dance music, and “Walked Outta Heaven” has us two-stepping all over the offices today. Grab the free download here through digital house imprint Night Supply and start shifting your dancing feet a little early this week.

Rudeboy (AObeats Flip)

When you see a Rihanna remix on your horizon, it’s easy to have doubts. We’ve had really good and really bad edits of everyone’s favorite bad girl; luckily this one falls into the former. AOBeats is one of the best talents you may have not heard of and on his newest remix to celebrate 5,000 on Facebook, he’s out to prove why. Perfectly blending together the island sounds that made “Rudeboy” a radio jam and the future beats sound he has pioneered his budding career, the Moving Castle-affiliated beatmaker truly sets the bar higher with his effort on this one.
