Beat The Sunrise (Gianni Kosta Remix)

This is one track you don’t want to miss today. Gianni Kosta‘s wonderful remix of SNBRN‘s “Beat The Sunrise” will definitely put you in a good mood as you head into the final two days of your work week. As expected, the French producer dialed up his own spin with a melodic house styling complete with an uplifting organ synths and well-placed vocal samples. All in all, it truly does the original justice, while still maintaining Kosta’s signature style.

If you enjoyed the original, this track will be a welcomed change of pace, adding in a little extra spice. Think of it as the chilled out rendition of SNBRN’s “Sunset House” brand. After you’ve had a spin, be sure to check out Gianni’s page if you dig the track. He’s holding it down and creating a name for himself as an artist to watch in 2016.

[House] MORTEN – Beautiful Heartbeat ft. Frida Sundemo (RAC Mix)

RAC
MORTEN
Beautiful Heartbeat ft. Frida Sundemo (RAC Mix)

We’ve been keen to both the sounds of producer wunderkind André Allen Anjos, known nearly worldwide as RAC; and Danish Producer & DJ, MORTEN for years now. So, when their unlikely paths came careening together via this darker than normal RAC remix of MORTEN’s “Beautiful Heartbeat”, we were quick to fall for its liquid groove. A bit more of a shot to the underground house clubs than the indie-dance floors RAC’s become synonymous with over the years. Anjos’ skill in regards to experimental pop studio work has always taken stage front and center, with that analog synthesizer and drum-machine sound more often than not bound to the rather expansive RAC library; but his latest remix is fueled by much larger sounds. A driving kick-drum takes front-and-center immediately after a hollow synth lead clears just enough room for Frida Sundemo‘s haunting vocal track to wonderfully punctuate each and every passing note. RAC’s always had a way of making dance music extremely palatable to most any level of listener, and on this revision of “Beautiful Heartbeats” he’s hit the nail on the head yet again. This one pairs oh so pefectly with a night drive to the city. Stream RAC’s “Beautiful Heartbeat” remix above.

Losing Myself (Mark Lower Remix)

We’ve had our ear towards rapidly ascending house label Enormous Tunes‘ steadily expanding catalog for a hot minute now. Their imprinted sound, which has become permanent home to heavy hitters Nora En Pure & Croatia Squad, has always been true to their namesake. Prominently featuring deeper, peanut-buttery thick analog basslines and heavily-armed grooves, the latest to emanate from the Swiss based label comes in the form of French deep house producer, Mark Lower, taking remix duties on Sandy Dae’s “Losing Myself”. This one’s another beautiful feather in Lower’s cap, who from the first time this writer had the pleasure of hearing what was my favorite dance track of 2013 “I Got A Dream”, has been hooked towards his each and every passing release. Let’s get into Friday night spirit a little early this afternoon and pump the volume on Mark Lower’s “Losing Myself” remix in the form of a shiny new ‘TMN Premiere’ above.

[15 to End 2015] Ninja Baseer’s Best of the Year

15 To End 15 - Baseer

When evaluating lists like this, it’s always important to remember the subjectivity in music. The songs here are not just what I would say are the “best” of 2015 or even necessarily my favorites, but the ones I had the most attachment to for one reason or another. Music is the closest thing we have to time travel in that it can evoke emotions unlike any other and effortlessly bring us back to moments long forgotten. This compilations of songs serves almost as a walk through memory lane, and choosing just 15 tracks to represent my 2015 proved to be a daunting task. Alas, I was able to finally narrow down my choices, so I hope you all enjoy my picks even if you don’t fully agree with them (which let’s be honest, you won’t). Finally, if you are curious about what didn’t make the cut, I’m going to shamelessly plug this massive Spotify playlist I compiled that includes pretty much all of my favorites from 2015.

Kendrick Lamar
These Walls ft. Bilal, Anna Wise, Thundercat
There’s no question that To Pimp A Butterfly is a classic album, so choosing just one standout single was definitely a challenge, but “These Walls” proves to be equally thought provoking as it is groovy.

Thundercat
Them Changes
Speaking of “Them Changes”, Thundercat played an integral part in 2015’s funk revival, with Flying Lotus laying the groundwork for this tune with the Isley Brothers-sampling instrumental.

Toro Y Moi
Buffalo
“Buffalo” is just about as fun as it gets when Mr. Chaz Bundick is shredding on the guitar.

The Internet
Girl ft. KAYTRANADA

As far as love songs go, we couldn’t ask for more from this hypnotic collaboration between The Internet and Kaytranada.

Alina Baraz & Galimatias
Can I
Alina’s mellifluous voice and incisive lyrics combined with Galimatias’s melodic production will captivate your attention from start to finish.

SG Lewis
No Less Ft Louis Mattrs
Featuring two of the most remarkable talents I discovered in 2015, “No Less” makes for one of the smoothest listens of the year, accomplished through a superb blend of dulcet vocals and acoustic guitar work.

Drake
Hotline Bling
The most meme-worthy tune of the year is also easily one of the most infectious. Shout outs to D.R.A.M.

Jamie XX, Young Thug & Popcaan
I Know (Good Times)
The ultimate party anthem of 2015, “Good Times” are undoubtably to be had whenever this genre defying jam comes on.

Snakehips x Tory Lanez
Dímelo
One of the more unconventional pairings of the year, Snakehips and Tory Lanez found an incredibly creative middle ground between their drastically different sounds.

Mura Masa
Firefly (ft. Nao)
Two of our favorite up-and-comers from the UK, Mura Masa and Nao team up to create one of the catchiest songs we’ve heard in a long time.

Disclosure
Superego (ft. Nao)
It’s no mistake that Nao appears twice on this list, as the British songstress lends her vocal talents to yet another addicting tune.

Skrillex And Diplo
To Ü (Feat. AlunaGeorge)
Sorry JB, but Aluna Francis wins the award for the best Skrillex and Diplo collaboration of the year.

Gallant
Weight In Gold (Louis Futon Remix)
Pro Tip: Gallant’s “Weight In Gold” might have been the most heavily remixed track of the year, but I’ve found no version is more apt for shower acoustics than the Louis Futon remix.

Beach House
PPP

Beach House have a gift for crafting music that’s perfect for those times when you need to just close your eyes and drift away deep into your mind’s abyss.

Tame Impala
Let It Happen
Just as the title implies, it’s best to submerge yourself in the Currents of this psychedelic tune and let them carry you away on a new journey.

Shlohmo
BURIED
Shlohmo’s Dark Red serves as the soundtrack for the most epic space voyage you could ever imagine. Lock yourself in a dark room and let the music take hold.

[15 to End 2015] Ninja Clayton’s Best of the Year

endoftheyearCW

Even though I’ve been writing for TMN over the past five years, I certainly don’t expect any of you to have me or my musical tastes pegged. In fact, I’d much rather you see this site as a whole, enjoying the eclectic blend that all the ninjas bring to the table. But, if you have paid attention, you’ll know that I love nothing more than hunting through submissions, SoundCloud, BandCamp, tweets, and smoke signals to try and find the best and brightest emerging artists.

2015 brought a few new acts to the scene that I simply couldn’t get enough of, a few of which made it into this year-end playlist. In addition to those, my musical world was blessed with albums from artists who haven’t released something in quite some time, including one band that surfaced after a six-year hiatus.

My 15 favorite tracks are listed below in no particular order because that would be painfully difficult and time-consuming. Instead, I’ve compiled them in a way that should provide you with an enjoyable listening experience, start to finish. If you’re unfamiliar with any of them, I’ve included a one-sentence description that should help highlight what to expect.

Patrick Watson
Places You Will Go

Patrick Watson continues to further the question that he could be an alien sent to mesmorize the human race.

Mew
Satellites (Edit)

Mew is finally back, in full form, and it’s magnificent.

Day Wave
Drag

This new act took the blogosphere by storm, myself included.

James Vincent McMorrow
How To Waste A Moment

Upbeat number with from the golden-voiced singer/songwriter, who also became one of my favorite live acts to watch in 2015.

Still Parade
07:41

A little 70’s funk and pop mixed in with gorgeous vocals landed this newly released track into my best of 2015.

Viola Beach
Swings & Waterslides

This new act put out a track that’s ideal for a raucous night out, an adventurous road trip, or your next backyard BBQ.

The Watermelons
Best Of You

One listen to this catchy-as-hell song will have you singing along with ease.

The Score
Oh My Love

These guys will soon be heard across radio stations, shopping malls, commercials, and major motion pictures with their extremely infectious pop.

JR JR
Gone

Perfect tune for a montage of you and your special someone frolicking through a field.

Jack Garratt
Breathe Life (Radio Edit)

This memorable track displays what we love most about Mr. Garratt – the unknown.

The Hunna
Bonfire

Catchy Brit-Pop that will be coming to a stadium or festival mainstage near you in late 2016/2017.

Drenge
We Can Do What We Want

If you ever feeling like a drunken episode of lawlessness, put this on.

Gallant
Talking In Your Sleep

Sexy, seductive, and alluring, this tune sticks with you longer than unwanted relatives.

Bobby Nourmand
The Sound

A combination of haunting deep house, a timeless movie, and iconic vocals.

Bon Voyage
Booshie

Sometimes I like to party, and this song is the cause for most of those times.
