[Deep-House] Bobby Nourmand – S I S T E R

BOBBY NOURMAND
S I S T E R

2016 is shaping up into a banner year for LA based house producer Bobby Nourmand. After taking the underground by storm with his last single “S M O K I N J O E” on The Magician’s Potion Records which recieved support from the likes of Oliver Heldens, Afrojack & Martin Garrix, back in February, Nourmand returns with a crafty slice of deep, dark club aesthetics “S I S T E R”. Using a perfectly synced vocal from one of our generation’s most notable frontmen, Billy Idol, Nourmand weaves swollen bass with sticky synth progressions and brittle guitars, which has resulted in yet another tasteful club tune destined to make its global run.

After his latest run of shows which included packed out houses at Exchange LA, The Delano Beach Club & FDR during Miami Music Week, and at Webster Hall for The Magician’s official EDC afterparty; the rest of the world has begun to take notice of Nourmand’s immensely polished production as well. Keep your eyes peeled for Bobby Nourmand’s next slate of tour dates, and listen to “Sister” above.

CAFUNÉ – Don’t You Forget

We love CAFUNÉ. After having the amazing opportunity to premiere their debut EP, Love Songs For Other People, we’ve been hooked on their pristine style of electronically tinged pop. They continue to demonstrate their mastery of the genre with “Don’t You Forget” in a positive minded approach, both lyrically and production-wise. They’ve even been given praise from Pharrell Williams himself, so, even if you haven’t heard of them yet, you will. From their amazing covers to their catchy and sweet original material, CAFUNÉ show that pop music isn’t all formulaic, and we’re lucky to get to hear them break that barrier.

Mura Masa – Lotus Eater (Tonton Remix)

Simply put, this is a stunning rendition of an already phenomenal song. Remixing Mura Masa is no small feat, and Tonton made it look effortless. The defining features of the original were kept, but this “Lotus Eater” update has skyrocketed into popularity on its own merit. Finding a way to still make your speakers go through a workout and maintaining a cool and collected sense of calm is quite the balance, but this remix handles both without fail. Keep your ears open to for more Tonton.

Anna Straker – Late Night Swimming

We’ve got even more great pop coming at you this week, and it’s here courtesy of Anna Straker. Debut tracks on SoundCloud are always great to come across, and “Late Night Swimming” continues this trend without a hitch. You can soak up the sun with this one, or cruise around with the windows down as the breeze whips around you almost in time with the song itself. Anna Straker is enchanting throughout the tune, and, even with the strong production, her voice is the anchor holding “Late Night Swimming” together. We are VERY ready for more from her.

Mishegas – Home

Building an emotional appeal with no words is something to be admired, and Mishegas‘ sophomore tune channels a similarity to artists in Foreign Family in this regard. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and let “Home” transport you into another dimension of heavenly synths, swaths of reverberating drums, and a serendipitous melody that makes you feel like everything might just be alright. We’re catching onto Mishegas early, but there’s no stopping him if more tunes like “Home” are on the way.

YOKE LORE – SAFETY

What do you get when you put a little bit of banjo into electronica? YOKE LORE. At first glance of that sentence, it may seem like a silly combination, but “SAFETY” has proven it can work, and very well at that. The group vocals chant harmoniously along with a strumming banjo, thumping kicks, and resounding synths that culminate into something extremely unique. This is one tune you’ll just have to listen to to believe. Grab their EP here!

Vicetone – Bright Side Ft. Cosmos & Creature (Boehm Remix) [TMN Premiere]

SPRMX Vicetone - Bright Side ft. Cosmos & Creature (Boehm Remix)

Boehm of Bucharest has something special coming out soon. The Romanian producer was tapped for an official remix for Vicetone’s “Bright Side” that features Cosmos & Creature. Spinnin Records is backing this remix, as they hosted the original, but the ninjas come in to premiere the song to you.

“Bright Side” was a soft house record that focused more on vibes than hype. With Boehm’s remix, we still get a similar tone as the original had, but the energy jumps up a few notches. It’s a club friendly remix that has everything you want and more. Boehm pairs a solid bassline with subtle vocal chops for a coupling that is minimal, but extremely powerful at the same time. For fans of the strings that were the main element of the original, don’t worry, Boehm kept those in there in the introduction to pay a little homage. Sometimes these big remixes fall a bit flat, but this one certainly does not. Boehm did more than justice to Vicetone with his edit that you are hearing first here!

[Deep House] LittleKings – I Love Your Smile

I Love Your Smile

Amsterdam is one of the many havens of house music on this planet. One such act from the Netherlands’ capital is LittleKings, who recently took on the 90’s hit single “I Love Your Smile” from Shanice. The 1991 song went from poppy R&B to deep house in this fresh cut.

LittleKings started out with a single that, although it was released in the 90’s, it’s sound is still a bit 80’s. They bring the vocal out and into modern times with a deep take on “I Love Your Smile” with a tinge of tropical vibes. With the updated composition we get a strong focus on melody that keeps the song as catchy as ever. For three and a half minutes listeners get whisked away through a sonic journey full of uplifting sounds and majestic melodies that will have them coming back for more. LittleKings have only put out three songs, so expect them to dish out some more quality tunes soon.

Jai Wolf – Drive (feat. Chain Gang of 1974)

Jai Wolf has come a long way since No Pets Allowed, and watching his rapid ascent to success has been quite the trip to say the least. Since his recent foray into original material with Indian Summer, he’s shifted to creating songs that make you feel like you could just jump and fly away whenever you want. “Drive” is his wonderful second original offering and it exists as a dreamy counterpart to Indian Summer, stacked from top to bottom with breathtaking production and effervescent vocals from The Chain Gang of 1974. In short, it’s miraculous. The Foreign Family Collective continues its winning streak with “Drive,” and we’re all better off because of it.

Slow Shudder – Call You Back

A timely repost on SoundCloud can be an awesome thing, and, thanks to AObeats, we were given the opportunity to hear the debut tune from London’s own Slow Shudder. She’s already on to something with “Call You Back.” She effortlessly delivers each verse with her lofty and light voice before the tune quickly turns to a combination of club kick patterns, fluttering synths, and chirpy vocal chops that exhibits a level hand and production standard of more established artists before her. “Call You Back” is a strong statement to start with, and now we’re certainly ready to hear more from Slow Shudder.

Annabel Jones – Happy

You know good pop when you hear it. It isn’t hard to decipher. However, Annabel Jones makes something better than just good pop music. “Happy” proves it. Something about her delivery and soothing voice meshes well with any and all production, even the unpredictable instrumentation of this newest tune. Juggling angelic synths and almost PC Music-esque elements, “Happy” manages to completely change course multiple times in only four minutes, but the cohesiveness is maintained throughout. When it comes to following up a huge hit like IOU, it can be a difficult time, but Annabel Jones didn’t have any trouble at all creating a sweet new single for all of us to enjoy. Grab her debut EP on iTunes here!

Thalab – Wreck

Everything about this Thalab song is gorgeous. This is the sort of crazy and beautiful result you get when you smash together the best of electronica, alternative, folk, and even a little soul. The sound design is second to none, and the spacious atmosphere created manages to also stay grounded because of the tactful use of acoustic guitar juxtaposed with careening and lush synths. We’ll be the first to admit we aren’t entirely familiar with many producers from Spain, but these Barcelona natives have managed to pique our curiosity into expanding our exploration into a more international approach. End your day on the perfect note with this one.


ardency

Commandeur – Wasted (Ardency Remix)

We love Ardency. They’ve pulled together a reputable collection of remixes and a handful of originals, and their latest project stems from the former. Fun Fact: Commandeur is the side project of the drummer from the great Australian band Panama, and this duo snagged a chance to give their own spin on his tune “Wasted.” There’s a classic, almost revamped 80’s edge to Ardency’s production that makes for an emotional rollercoaster on certain occasions, and this is absolutely one of times. It’s hard to deny the power of an electronic pop tune like this, and Ardency prides themselves on demonstrating their abilities in reshaping an older sound into something fresh and new. Do yourself a favor and snag the free download their remix here.

[House] JAHKOY – Still In Love (Digital Farm Animal Remix)

JAHKOY

JAHKOY always manages to put out good music, no matter if it’s straight from his camp or by way of another. This time around it was by way of a remix from Digital Farm Animal, who absolutely crushed a flip of “Still In Love.” Their vibrant deep house take on it brings a fresh sound to a genre that’s not as hype as it once was. Digital Farm Animal are looking to change that here.

With this new version of “Still In Love” we get a strong melodic sound that is perfect for a club atmosphere. What makes this song better than other club records is that this one is great no matter what setting you find yourself in. It has that crossover, sort of poppy, vibe to it that makes it fit any where any time. Digital Farm Animal are forcing your hand here, as you’re going to feel the necessity to put this one on repeat throughout the weekend. We must warn you though, if you thought the original was hard to get out of your head, this one is doubly so.

Pat Lok – You Street

Pat Lok straight up rocks. He’s been an ace producer of infectious house tunes for a while now, and his collection of remixes speaks volumes with its success so far. The latest tune he’s dropped on us is a funky original, teeming with smooth synths and rocking percussion that could easily become a staple in your poolside playlist during the months ahead. There’s no shortage of grooving with Pat Lok, and “You Street” is a great example of that.

Klangstof – Island

It’s a moot point by now, but Mind of a Genius continues to push some of the best music. Their most recent signing, Klangstof, has finally followed up their debut tune with the ethereal beauty of “Island.” Something about this group is inherently magical, and their tunes help you to escape to a better place. The entire six and a half minutes of this song is absolutely immersive and spectacular. Don’t miss out their other recent release, “Amansworld,” either.

Kultur – White Door (Ft. Khary)

Shifting from his normal ambience, Kultur delivers a slick hip-hop tune featuring vocals from Khary. Hopefully there’s more of this in store from Kultur, because it works for him. Whether you’re entirely familiar with his normal material or not, “White Door” already is a standout for the French producer. He prides himself on mainly emotional pieces of work, but this new tune just feels fun and is an intriguing switch-up. It’s no secret that there’s a large amount of talented producers hailing from France, and Kultur is upholding his end of the deal big time.

Elohim – Sensations

Every new Elohim tune gets us more and more excited for her debut EP due out on May 20th. Even with an abundance of synth-pop artists out there, Elohim has continued to make her mark over the last year with stunning songs and an alluring, mysterious presence. “Sensations” feels more jubilant than most of her previous tunes, and it’s easy to see how she has been able to garner her popularity with ditties like this. She’s captivating, and we’re fidgeting in our seats just thinking about her debut project on the way.

pools – summer sunday (sisasa remix)

SISASA is in no hurry to be anywhere based on the relaxing tunes we’ve heard. Each of the three songs released so far is wrapped in a tranquil and simple atmosphere, and, somehow, SISASA has managed to transform pools into an an even more serene invention. Complexity and technicality is always appreciated, but constructing a minimal melody and altering a sample in such a way that SISASA has takes a specific and careful type of production that can easily be disregarded. This works though. And it works well. End your day right with this one.
