[Moombah] Tiga – Bugatti (Gorilla Bass Remix)

Gorilla Bass
Bugatti (Gorilla Bass Remix)

Gorilla Bass is back with another intriguing listen. Another remix, this time of “Bugatti” by Tiga gets turned out into a moombah gem. It’s like moombahcore meets tech, which makes for quite an aural experience. A fat bassline with a some solid dembow will always have people moving, but Gorilla Bass went on and managed to do more than just put those two elements together and copout for an easy song. His take on the song is creative and is much more involved than one thinks, even after having a listen. The remix has been released for free, so if you find your body moving along to the beat, go on and download it here.

With a balance of funk and house that follow a similar path of Cherokee, these two brothers truly have built upon a solid foundation that they’ve set up for themselves with their previous work. Guitar licks slide alongside the groovy bassline and tropical influenced synth stabs for a slick mesh of genres that melt into each other effortlessly. They’ve created an essential tune to kick off the impending festival season with, and the all around sunny disposition from this tune is ridiculously contagious. Enjoy the vibes and start off the spring right with Love They Brother!

[Future] G-Eazy – Lets Get Lost Ft. Devon Baldwin (Louis Futon Remix)

Lets Get Lost Ft. Devon Baldwin (Louis Futon Remix)

Louis Futon never disappoints. Effortlessly crafting enveloping soundscapes, this Philly-based producer/DJ never creates with a heavy hand, always showcasing artful finesse with every release.

Today we’re excited to add this gem to our regular rotation. As if predestined for a remix from this up-and-coming musician, “Let’s Get Lost” seems to translate perfectly into this future bass styling with ease. Futon creates and places samples flawlessly, highlighting both the gorgeous vocals from Devon Baldwin and the smooth, casual flow from G-Eazy. It still has every authentic vibe from the original, yet takes on an entirely new persona at the same time.

This tune is a free download on Futon’s soundcloud. We highly recommend heading over and snagging it for yourself. While you’re at it, head over to his facebook as well, as there’s a huge tour announcement coming really soon.

Skrillex & Diplo (Jack Ü) X Justin Bieber
Where Are Ü Now (Halogen Remix)

Maybe it’s the fact that it’s the weekend. Maybe it’s the fact that we’re in a pretty damn good mood. Maybe it’s the fact that this remix is actually just that damn good. Whatever the reason why we’re posting a song bearing the Beiber namesake, we’re charging ahead with it.

If you’ve been following TMN for the past few months, you’ll know that we’ve become quite fond of Atlanta-based producer/DJ duo Halogen. After a slight re-boot in their sound a while back, they’ve been churning out impressive tunes left and right, and we’ve been impressed with every release. Today’s is no different.

Yes, we’re a little late to the party, as this remix did come out four days ago (or four months in internet time), but it seemed like the perfect soundtrack to help lead us into the weekend. It’s light and energetic, boasting an engaging melody that begs to played on a sunny day with the windows down. Most of all though, Bieb’s vocals are pitched down, creating a perfect balance with the music.

If you’re slowly counting down the minutes until quitting time, throw this on and slip away for a few minutes. You won’t be disappointed.

Never Been In Love (Bixel Edition)

The #FREELIFE pioneers are on a tear with their latest releases, and their recent switch up in sound cranks up the energy big time with an edit of Elliphant‘s “Never Been In Love.” The Bixel Boys take a break from their typical house groove for a rock infused, trap influenced tune that could probably incite a riot at just about any moment. The bone crushing bass is balanced out by Elliphant’s powerful vocal maintained throughout, and the track melds together into the Boys’ most unique release to date. They went out on a limb to try out something new, and, even though we’re big fans of their work so far, we certainly hope to hear more deviations from their norm in the near future!
