[Electronic Soul] Men at Work – Down Under (Chuck Norris Dub) [Thomas Jack Edit]

Down Under
Chuck Norris Dub (Thomas Jack Edit)

A few weeks ago we featured an amazing little number from Australian producer Thomas Jack, “The Final Speech”, which then proceeded to embark on a viral tear including a stay at #1 on Hype Machine . On the heels of that solid release comes an edit of Men At Work’s 80′s staple “Down Under”, and it was another cleverly worked piece of soulful electronic music fit for our Ninja palate. Although this particular song has been warped and remixed countless times, the 20 year old has made it once again unique, yet irreparably familiar. TJ doesn’t skimp on the summery vibe on his plush edit, and with the recent heat around the Western States, it syncopated charmingly with our cochlear cavities. Stream the tune above.

[Remix] Phoenix – Trying To Be Cool (Feat. R. Kelly)

R.Kelly - Phoenix
Trying To Be Cool feat. R Kelly

After joining forces together at Coachella, we knew it was only time before something substantial came out of a pairing between R. Kelly and Phoenix. While we would have settled for an official recording of their mashup of “1901” and “Ignition (Remix),” this might be an even better prize. The Bankrupt! single makes the transformation from a song that was “Trying To Be Cool” to one that truly is with Kels now featured on the track. It’s not like the original was a slouch, but anytime you add R. Kelly into the mix, you automatically bump yourself up a few notches on the “coolness” meter. Just ask Aziz Ansari. Stream the single above, and make sure to grab yourself a copy. This one’s definitely a must have.

[Hip Hop] Jaymes Young – Dark Star (Jez Dior/SmarterChild Remix)

Jaymes Young
Dark Star (Jez Dior/SmarterChild Remix)

It’s always a great day when we get another release from one of our favorites in the game, Jez Dior. This emotionally charged lyricist has graced the pages of TMN before with his artfully crafted lyrics, provoking reflection with the snap of his tongue, which is why we’re always excited to hear new work from him.

Two weeks ago Jez and SmarterChild released their most recent project, which consisted of playing around with the arrangement of Jaymes Young’s blogosphere hit, “Dark Star”. This remix has a slightly more beat centric tempo, which gives the perfect cadence for Jez to lay some lyrics over. Once again we’re left feeling something, as we always do with Jez’s lyrics. This is one thing that we’ve come to expect from him, and he once again makes sure we’re not disappointed.

[TMN PREMIERE] Avicii Feat Aloe Blacc – Wake Me Up (Ahzee Remix)

Avicii Feat Aloe Blacc
Wake Me Up (Ahzee Remix)

New York producer/DJ Ahzee has been lighting up our Party Playlists every Friday, but today we wanted to give him a special nod for his recent remix of the highly controversial, yet highly revered Avicii track, “Wake Me Up.” Ahzee has taken the original and given it a huge festival style treatment with a bass laden drop and dialed up synths that maintain the original melody. The end result is something with a little more edge and grit than the original, providing a higher energy drive that will keep the party going, whether it’s in the club or just in your headphones.

[Electro House] Clinton Sparks feat. 2Chainz, Macklemore & D.A. – Gold Rush (Cash Cash X Gazzo Remix)

Clinton Sparks feat. 2Chainz, Macklemore & DA-Gold Rush (Cash Cash X Gazzo Remix)

As you awake from your alcohol induced slumber, slamming a glass of water and maybe a few advils, press play on this bad boy and get back in the mood to dance. While it may be Sunday morning, we can assure you that this tune will pick you up out of whatever funk it is that you’re in. We’re assuming that it’s a hangover, but hey, we’re certainly not judging.

Most of us are familiar of the monster tune from Grammy nominated Boston based artist Clinton Sparks featuring 2Chainz, the thrift store t-shirt adorned Macklemore, and D.A. This radio monster has received plenty of attention with it’s catchy hooks and piano melodies. Today though, we’re stoked to hear a dancy electro house treatment of the original coming from Jersey Natives Cash Cash and Gazzo. This is a straight up radio mix, meaning all the vocals of the original are in place and in tact, but now this tune is dialed up with some sharp electro house synths that give it just a little more edge.
