[House] Maya Payne – Something We Once Knew (PatrickReza Remix)

PatrickReza & Maya Payne
Something We Once Knew (Remix)

“Something We Once Knew” is Maya Payne‘s most recent original work. It’s something worth checking out and so is PatrickReza‘s take on the track which we have for you today.

Released as a free download, this remix sees Patrick going back to the house genre, except he dives into disco with this edit. “Something We Once Knew” went from alternative pop to a nu-disco style record with one flip. Patrick can tackle any genre he sets his mind to and it’s nice to hear something different with this one. Every time he drops something, it’s worth the listen and the buy. Although it’s been released as a free download, it is still available on digital formats for those looking to support!

[Event Review] NVDES and RAC Rock The Independent, SF 9/19

NVDES
I Want To Make Out At The Gay Club

TMN favorite NVDES opened up with an electrifying performance in support of RAC last Tuesday night. Playing in the intimate setting of The Independent in San Francisco, NVDES surprised an open-minded crowd that collectively seemed unfamiliar with their work. Frontman Josh Ocean and his long time collaborator, fondly known as Lemon Girl, rocked out with endless energy and charisma.

Attendees jammed out to tunes from NVDES’ most recent EP, La Nvdité Vol. 1. The EP was featured here on TMN and went along with an exclusive interview; check it out here. Highlights included the infectious electro-punk tracks “Dancer from New York” and “May and June”.  Ocean and Lemon Girl also graced us with tracks from their older discography, like “I Wanna Make Out at the Gay Club”. True to NVDES nature as a revolving collective, frontman Josh played a few tracks that bandmate Lemon Girl did not know. Much to his credit, Lemon Girl improvised flawlessly and put up a great performance throughout. Finally, they played some unreleased material, sharing some of their political leanings as well as their love for the Hyundai Elantra. Truly an eclectically enjoyable experience– one of the top 3 shows this Music Ninja has been to this year. Continue reading

Cody Lovaas
Bodies (Roseville Remix)

Let’s start Monday off right the premiere of a brand new single. A remix by Chicago’s own Roseville of “Bodies” by Cody Lovaas is what we’ve got in the dojo today. You’re getting a first listen to its distinct future sound.

“Bodies” in its new form is characterized by a future tinged production with hints of influence from trap. It’s hybrid sound is what makes it so spectacular. Sometimes when people mix genres, they don’t do either justice and with this one Roseville was able to take the best parts of each and amplify them together. There’s plenty more where the style came from as you can see from the intro and bridge. Take a listen and enjoy the medley of sounds in the first peak at Roseville’s most recent remix.

Point Point – Hands feat. Denai Moore (R.O Remix) [TMN Premiere]

Point Point
Hands (feat. Denai Moore) [R.O. Remix]

Point Point‘s single “Hands” featuring Denai Moore was a sonic treat that we, along with many others, fell in love with. Now the producer has brought on a few remixers to take on the original, including R.O. Today we’ve got the premiere of his take on “Hands” in the dojo.

R.O keeps a similar poppy style to the original, but strips down some of the more future elements. What makes this remix particularly special is the fact that R.O keeps it developing from beginning to end, never leaving you back where you already came from. It’s a great minimal flip that is recognizable to the original. R.O knocked this one out of the park without a doubt. Enjoy this one thoroughly over the weekend!

We’re fairly confident that no matter what you will like this starRO remix. Little Monarch’s single “No Matter What” got a smooth makeover from the Los Angeles resident. His soulful R&B remix is just the perfect thing you need to help get you to the weekend and celebrate properly.

Let’s dive into the track by stating simply that starRO just nailed it, 100%. Instead of focusing on the energy the original had, starRO slowed things down and got a bit more groovy with his take. The original’s material is instantly recognizable, but even for those who love Little Monarch’s version, they’ll be blown away by this one. Have a listen and stay sexy.
