Sleepless (Prince Fox & Jenaux Remix)
Whenever we come across artists who continuously blow our minds with their uncanny abilities to create some of the most feel good music out there, we can’t help but fan-girl when such artists decide to team up and combine their styles of music. A couple of weeks ago, a TMN newbie, Jenaux, and a TMN regular, Prince Fox, surprised us all with a stunning remix of the oh so familiar Cazzette track, “Sleepless”. After obsessing over his Panama Wedding “Uma” remix, we knew that Jenaux’s Progressive House background and Prince Fox’s eclectic style of production would ultimately shut down the internet for the evening. With no surprise at all, these two fused together both Progressive and Future Bass elements to send us soaring in this “Sleepless” remix. Loaded with poppy melodies, uplifting builds, and mainstage worthy breakdowns, Jenaux and Prince Fox could not have made a more perfect team. The response they’ve gotten thus far just means that we need to see them work on more tracks together. *Hint Hint*
Liberate (Lane 8 Remix)
Here’s where we stand: Eric Prydz is one of the best in the business. While we’ve always been fans of this Stockholm based musician, we were even more sold when we saw him close out Coachella ’13. We had spent an entire weekend hearing nothing but build up, drop, build up, drop, build up, drop, and hearing a progressive set from Mr. Prydz was nothing short of spectacular. In our honest opinion, his show was one of the best we saw all weekend long.
Taking on a track from this progressive house legend is nothing short of daunting, but we have faith in San Fran-based producer Lane 8. Having previously stolen our hearts with “I Got What You Want,” we were equally enammoured with his interpretation of “Liberate.”
This slow, encapsulating remix provides a delicious soundscape worthy of a fine glass of bourbon and a rare cigar. Ok, maybe that’s the old man in me talking. Regardless of which, the soundscape created by Lane 8 in this remix is second to none, focusing highly on a gorgeous chord progression and heavy claps from the cymbals.
Hollow (Les Loups Remix)
Another great find of the day is this Les Loups remix of this Knight One track titled “Hollow”. Les Loups claims this tune to be in the “ocean disco” subgenre, and they cannot describe it more accurately. They are always able to put together French house and disco music, creating funky and catchy tunes all around. This song features oceanic wave sounds in the background, and the funky slappy electric guitar comes in to seal the deal. They can rightfully say that they have established themselves as a French electronic powerhouse after this release.
Make sure to check out Les Loups’ Swords Cry (The Remixes) EP, consisting of a whole bunch of French disco goodness remixing fun and relaxing tunes.
In the subgenre of tropical house, producer Sam Feldt isn’t usually a name that will ring a bell to most people. This recent release of a remix collaborating with Bloombox titled “On Trees and Birds and Fire”, is a tune originally by indie folk group I Am Oak.
This remix is amazing in the sense of how well Sam Feldt manages to turn folk music into this deep house goodness. The tune starts off with these wooden drumsticks samples, then the tropical bell sounds come in to join the mix together with the vocals. They talk about trees and birds so you can call this a country/folk fusion pop song that got turned into a tropical house remix. The idea is simple but genius. It might not have the necessary tropical house elements in the song, but the lyrics and the instrumentals definitely make up for it.
We are really excited to see what Sam Feldt has to offer. Go have a listen and we promise you won’t be disappointed!
Girlfriends (Linier Bootleg)
Better grab your best party outfit, your favorite bottle of booze, and call up a group of your closest friends because we just found the perfect tune to make you go boom bop, boom boom boom ta bop. Think we’re over exaggerating? Think again ninjas because Linier just took us to House heaven with their latest bootleg of Joel Compass’ “Girlfriends”. Linier sets this song on fire with a blast of sensational piano riffs, a sexy bassline, and a bitchin’ breakdown that has us breakin’ a sweat. The producing duo have raised the bar for House producers all around and this bootleg is evident that they know what the hell they’re doing. While we get down with our bad selves, we highly recommend you get your flame started by simply pressing play because we can 100% guarantee you’ll be bobbin’ your head to this highly addictive beat.
Adore You (Polar Youth refix)
We aren’t sure if posting a Miley Cyrus re-work is a good representation of our taste in music over here at TMN, however, we must point out that some kids sure do know how to flip her songs into something that we can actually enjoy for once. 19-year-old Belgium producer, Polar Youth, gave Miley’s “Adore You” a much needed chill trap tune-up in which she crafts this song into something truly, truly beautiful. With its subtle, tropical ambiance and a heavy 808 to chill us to the bone, Polar Youth flawlessly creates the perfect production to emphasize Miley’s lyrics on a much deeper value. Who would have thought we would be saying these types of things about Miley and her unique behaviors? Lucky for her, it took some girl power to give this song a certain desirability for all of us to enjoy. While Polar Youth continues taking over this genre, get your free download and adore it until you find yourself in a bear suit taking selfies in the bathroom (we really don’t think that will happen, so don’t worry).
Closer (SAVAT RMX)
All I wanna get is, a little bit closer…
It’s always so nice to stumble upon the hidden gems of Soundcloud that make you truly find yourself in a pristine state of relaxation. A midst the over saturation of big room bangers, progressive house anthems, and every other beat known to man, there exists an entirely new side of music that takes a lot of digging to find. Today we did just that. If you’re a fan of Tegan and Sara and recognize this sample right off the bat, then you are going to fall into reverberated synth love in this majestic SAVAT remix of Stillways sample based original, “Closer”. From start to finish, SAVAT takes us one step closer to finding that certain kind of peace we all crave to have. While guiding us towards that internal bliss, SAVAT introduces us to a wide array of sounds and techniques that are commonly used by those from down under (referencing Australia). This synth-based piece revives our souls and wakes us up with a refreshing blast of chill wave vibes. This tune is perfect for driving down the coast or staying in on a Friday night, so get your free download today and enjoy these quality beats whenever you please.
