Skinny Love (Fareoh Remix)
Birdy

No matter who you are or what you listen to, we have come to the conclusion that there is not a single soul who does not love Birdy’s rendition of “Skinny Love” (originally by Bon Iver). Whenever anyone puts their spin on this timeless track, we cannot help but grab our Webster dictionary and pour ourselves a glass of fine wine before we turn into music reviewers.

When it comes to remixing classics, we have to be selective about the remixes that surface our newsfeeds because with a song like “Skinny Love”, we only want to present the best of the best. It must be a lucky day for all of you because we just found something for all you ninjas to go ape shit over. New York producer and groove master, Fareoh, put one of the glitchiest electronic spins on “Skinny Love” and turned it into pure gold.

As soon as you press play, you’re instantly welcomed with a choppy acoustic melody along with Birdy’s sensational whispy voice that effortlessly progresses into a glitch-hop, electro house, funky fresh breakdown to bring you those much needed Summer vibes. If this were being played at a festival, you bet you’d be hearing this during a Gramatik set at Lightning in a Bottle because there is no way the masters of electronic funk could let this one fall off the radar. Fareoh definitely just made a name for himself and his music with this one and we expect to be hearing this at every festival until the end of time. Not only did he kill it as a remix, but he just made it a timeless track to give us those nostalgic groovy feels whenever we please.

[Bass] Wilsen – Magnolia (REVOKE Remix)

Magnolia (REVOKE Remix)

Do you ever stumble across those songs that leave you questioning what the hell you just listened to? Well we ninjas just had an existential crisis all thanks to REVOKE. The Southern California producer is notorious for turning things up regardless of where we’re at. Lunch with grandma? Turn up. At the doctor’s office? Turn up. In line at Subway? Turn up with extra avocado. The guy sure does know how to handle his music in the weirdest, most eclectic way and we couldn’t be more stoked to share what he has cooking up his sleeve today.

After a successful remix alongside the dynamic duo, Candyland, REVOKE decided to give us an entirely different side of himself with his latest remix of “Magnolia” by Wilsen. At first, we really had no idea what to classify this song as because it incorporates elements from the entire music spectrum (especially, bass) such as melodic trap, dubstep, drum and bass, electro, etc. This powerful remix is suitable for anyone’s taste and REVOKE absolutely turned this pristine song into a vibey, head-banging, swoon worthy track of the week. Grab your free download today and let this tune make you question everything you think you know about music.

[Progressive House] Galantis – Smile (Hyperbits & Jenaux Remix)

Galantis
Smile (Hyperbits & Jenaux Remix)

Often times we come across those tracks that make us drop everything we are doing in order for us to enjoy the moment for what it’s worth. Well today just seems to be one of those days where we probably aren’t going to be getting anything work-related done because we can’t seem to pick up those important things we previously dropped. Just a few moments ago we we noticed something popped up on our feed from a TMN favorite, Jenaux. At that moment we knew that we were about to strap ourselves in for a rollercoaster ride of some progressive feels. After we randomly discovered his remix of Panama Wedding’s, “Uma”, we instantly became fans from there on out. If you recall from that write up, Jenaux re-introduced us to the side of Progressive House that we all genuinely love and appreciate so much.

We are filled with joy today, ninjas, because Jenaux is back with another synergetic masterpiece and this time alongside House producer, Hyperbits. The two decided to link up and take on the incredible number, “Smile”, by Galantis. This Summer anthem is full of emotionally moving melodies, uplifting builds, and a breakdown that’ll have you smiling from ear to ear. Jenaux and Hyperbits instantly took us back to the Identity Festival days of hugging, dancing, and PLURing with everyone and their furries. This song is bound to make you smile, so for that, we wish you all a happy #ThrowbackThursday because you’ll definitely be thinking back to your favorite festival moments after hearing this stunning piece.

[Festival Review] TMN Dives Into Denver’s Underground Music Showcase

If you’re wondering whether or not Colorado’s music scene is embodied solely by bass-heavy barons devastating Red Rocks on a regular basis, or the constant national and international accolades given to Beta Nightclub year after year, you can stop that right now. While much of the Mile High City’s music scene’s notoriety falls into those two aforementioned venues, The UMS flexed it’s mighty indie muscle two weekends ago, showing the city, the state, the nation, and the world that a handful of tiny venues deserves just as much attention.

Taking over one of Denver’s most prized neighborhoods, The UMS flooded the numerous dive bars, galleries, and restaurants that adorn the colorful South Broadway stretch. In a meticulous blend of some well known acts coupled with hyper-indie (so indie, even the hippest of your friends haven’t heard about them yet) there was more than enough to appease the auditory appetite of the thousands of festival goers that flooded the streets.

Knowing that there was too much music for one ninja to cover, we had to break up The UMS between two from our clan. Check out what Matty and Clayton experienced during their first full experience of this must-attend event.

While we couldn’t yet make it out in full force to the first night of Denver’s incredible Underground Music Showcase, we did manage to make it to one of our favorite electronic artist’s sets, with CRL CRRLL (pronounced Carl Carrell) at Blue Ice. An abbreviated set to say the least, CRL CRRLL managed to warp our minds through different texturized soundscapes played off of his bevy of machines, MIDI controllers and gadgets on stage through the 40 minute performance. This was the second time we’ve had the pleasure of witnessing him live, as he played our TMN presented show in Denver with Young & Sick (which if you haven’t heard his remix of their tune “Glass”, check it out below) and it seems in the short span of time, CRLCRRLL’s reached a more fluid, comfortable and mature stage presence.

[Future/Dance] Snoop Dogg – Sensual Seduction (Dr. Fresch Remix)

Sensual Seduction (Dr. Fresch's #FutureSex Remix)

Dr. Fresch has been an artist with whom we’ve become a bit enamored with through a varied collection of original tunes and remixes which touch down on nearly every genre encasing the subterranean dance sector. This time around, the L.A. based electronic producer has revealed yet another wrinkle to his production game with a very forward thinking remix of the Snoop Dogg hit “Sensual Seduction”; which fuses together components of house (both deep and G), trap, 2-step, and disko laden synths to create something we’ve never before felt or heard. Rather than turning in a formulaic dance remix on this one, Dr. Fresch’s version tells a complete story taking us from the scooting melody and retooled, high pitch vocals through its climax of deep bass, pitched down Snoop rumblings and slight wobble to boot. It’s always exciting to see artists tap into their more creative sides, especially when it’s executed with the same finesse you’ve come to love them for in the first place. We’re surely not the only ones with a musical crush on Dr. Fresch either as he was just a part of Global Dance Festival’s Main Stage at the best venue in the world, glorious Red Rocks Amphitheater outside of Denver. We can’t wait for another shot at a set from Dr. Fresch, but until then, his tunes will have to hold us over. Stream the Dr. Fresch remix of “Sensual Seduction” above, grab the free download here and maybe slip into something a little more risque to feel the full vibe on this one.

[Chill] Disclosure – Latch (TEEMID X Daniela Andrade Edition)

Latch (TEEMID X Daniela Andrade Edition)

There’s no doubt that we’ve probably seen more Disclosure remixes than we know what to do with. They’re populating faster than a colony of rabbits, but fortunately for us, today’s find stands out far above the rest. Not only do we get a musically re-interpreted visualization of the UK duo’s monster hit, but we’re also getting a cover as well.

Taking a crack at re-working “Latch,” TEEMID, the Bordeaux-based DJ Producer, has fused in his affinity for the deeper and techier side of house music. Replacing the thumping, pronounced bassline and driving kicks with a smooth and atmospheric soundscape, he gives this remix a laid-back vibe that’s truly infectious.

While Sam Smith’s vocals were always something to marvel at, we actually applaud TEEMID for not pitching them down to match the tempo and vibe, instead bringing on a more suitable vocalist to perform a cover. Housed within the soft, echoing synths, Canadian vocalist Daniela Andrade shines. Her silky, wispy cover not only does justice in comparison to the original, but it also gives “Latch” an entirely new persona, and one we won’t quickly forget.

[Future/Melodic-Trap] Kimbra – Settle Down (P A T H Remix)

Kimbra
Settle Down (P A T H Remix)

Sometimes it seems the most forward thinking talent within the electronic and dance communities keeps getting younger every year. Such is the case with our latest find teetering on infancy, 16 year old beatsmith P A T H, who has taken Kimbra’s pop hit “Settle Down”, and completely flipped the tune on its backside. P A T H plays with sound kits and structures most teenagers wouldn’t dream of going near, which makes his take on electronic music all the more intriguing. A metallurgic synth lays most of the framework for the young maestro’s revision, while a pitched down take on Kimbra’s sweetly drawn vocals, splice about P A T H’s soundscape creating an impressively intoxicating atmosphere from the onset. We’re definitely excited to see where the future takes our newest wunderkind, but you can be sure we’ll be staying on top of it here at TMN.
