[TMN Resident Artist] Le Castle Vania and his Top 5 Songs


It is almost September, hard to believe how fast summer has flown by and how much good music TMN has been listening to. Before we let Le Castle Vania go, we had to ask him about his five favorite songs right now, and boy, did he pick some great ones. Throw each of these into a playlist, sit back and reminisce about all things summer.

Knife Party – Resistance
Dyro – Sounds Like
I Am Legion – Choosing For You (Nightwatch Remix)
Oliver – Fast Forward
Nero – Satisfy

[Tropical House] De Hofnar – Shower (Bootleg)

De Hofnar
Shower (Bootleg)

Well, we have reached that day ninjas…the day where we have to hang up our bathing suits and trade it all in for real clothes because it’s the first day of school (for this ninja, at least) and our Summer is officially over. For those of you who are out of school and don’t really know what the concept of Summer is, well we’re sorry that this day means nothing to you. While you sit there at your 9-5 and we set our alarms to some ambitious hour, just know that in a few months we will understand your pain.

As we prepare for another Monday of monotonous hell, we really need something to wake our spirits and set the tone for our day. We decided to turn to De Hofnar and his latest bootleg of Becky G’s “Shower”. As soon as we heard his version we couldn’t help but feel as if we were driving down Highway 1 with all of our girlfriends and some Starbucks. This Summery, sax-heavy bootleg takes Tropical House to an entirely new level of “FETCH”. Make sure to grab your free download and take these tropical feels with you anywhere and anytime.

[Bass] ZHU – Superfriends (Just A Gent Remix)

Superfriends (Just A Gent Remix)

Aussie young gun Just A Gent has been reaping the rewards of his ambition of late, winning accolades, gigs, and a growing fan-base all before his age lets him legally enter a club. The rising producer has set the precedent for all the other aspiring talents out there and continues to push the bar with every new original and big name remix he creates. His latest statement in his own progression comes in the form of this huge take of ZHU’s ‘Superfriends’, and this one is set to cause the biggest stir yet. Preserving the menacing tone of the intensely deep original track, he kicks things up a notch in signature bass-heavy style. It’s genre-bending music at its very best, and exactly what we love about every new release from the surprising young gent.

[Melodic Trap] Arty – Up All Night (Slander Remix)

Up All Night (Slander Remix) [OUT 9/9 ON INSOMNIAC RECORDS]

After a wild weekend of hearing all about everyone’s FYF experiences and suffering a serious case of FOMO (Google it), we have been a bit bummed about not attending this years festivities. After all, what’s a festival without a ninja there to turn things up a notch or two? Now that we’ve recovered from such sadness, we have been listening to some tunes to pick our spirits back up; we’ve currently been stuck on the latest track from heaven trap/deep house duo, Slander. The two producers took on an Arty mainstage feeler, “Up All Night” and ultimately sent us to synth heaven with this remix. With this being their first release off Insomniac Records, Slander has proven that they are about to stir up the dance music community and we’re excited to be apart of the mixture.

[Future-House] Mary J. Blige – Family Affair (Pakem Edition)

∞ Pakem ∞
Mary J. Blige ∞ Family Affair (Pakem Edition)

Another work week is almost in the books, and yet another young producer has been added to our radar of ‘ones to watch’ through the tail end of 2014. Seemingly popping up out of nowhere on our Soundcoud feed was this groovy little remix of Mary J. Blige’s timeless “Family Affair” from 19 year old French electronic producer Pakem, and it held our undivided attention from the jump-off. Pakem’s remix fuses a hollow future tipping bassline with a neo-garage soul and sensibility we haven’t seen exhibited since hearing Disclosure’s early demos before they were signed to Greco-Roman. While not much is currently known about our newest electronic crush, we’re certainly going to be all ears as his already mature library grows. As an even sweeter bonus for your Friday, Pakem’s giving this one away on the house, so be sure to snag a copy here before the weekend kicks into high gear.

[TMN PREMIERE] Rae Sremmurd – No Flex Zone (Styles&Complete Remix)

No Flex Zone (Styles&Complete Remix)

Sometimes being a ninja can be a little exhausting, however, we never let this creative fatigue get to our heads, ESPECIALLY when we have a track that will undoubtedly make you want to take advantage of Hump Day in the dirtiest way possible. We aren’t here to hit you in the feels, so save the tears for another day and go put your twerking shorts on because we are about to take hyphy to the next level with the latest Styles&Complete remix of Rae Sremmurd’s anthem, “No Flex Zone.” After hearing this festival banger we could not stop flexing – so FAIR WARNING – you will flex and there’s no way you can resist the temptation.

Styles&Complete took this radio hit and threw on some booty bass, some wanky chopped horn synths, and solidified it all with some heavy hitting drums strong enough to punch you in the face. These guys obviously looked this track straight in the eye and said “we are about to violate the shit out of you and people will lose their minds once we’re done,” because this remix just permeated our skin with straight heat. You might need to go stock up on some fire extinguishers or at least go take a shower after exposing your senses to such filth because Stlyes&Complete will make you feel grimey as hell. Overall, this remix certainly met our expectations and in turn we just signed up to take booty bouncing lessons in order to perfect this artistic form of self-expression.
