My Boo 2016

Everybody knows of the Running Man Challenge. It’s one of the more viral things on the internet right now. Instead of bringing Ghost Town DJ’s song into 2016 by way of a silly video, Majestic and That Guy decided they were going to flip the track.

The two acts infused a bit more of a house-friendly groove into the song with their interpretation. We still get the memorable lyrics, and then we get some fun-loving piano chords along with small accompaniment that fills out the composition.”My Boo 2016″ has already received support from BBC 1Xtra, as well as several other DJs. Majestic & That Guy cashed in on flipping a great song that has had a ton of social media steam lately. There have been some remixes of this song coming out, but this is easily one of the better ones you are going to find. Random Mandem and New State Music partnered up to release this remix. Check it out now and maybe film your own Running Man Challenge video!

[House] Icarus – Home EP + Remixes

ICARUS_HOME_FeatAurora_Remixes

On February 1st of this year, the English act Icarus came out with the bustling single “Home” that featured vocalist AURORA. Together these two musical talents created a memorable record that is still getting its fair share of love all around the world from fans and Djs alike. Now, we have some remixes of “Home” that are just as powerful.

Four remixes were put together, with Icarus calling in some interesting producers to re-shape “Home” into something new. The first remix on the EP comes to us from Kölsch, a Denmark creator who really offered up something interesting with his take on the record. It’s not just any old average electronic remix. The same can be said about Lane 8’s remix, however this flip is a bit more deep and accessible to a wide variety of listeners. Humans & Machines keep the deep house vibes rolling with their remix that is one of the most club-friendly remixes on the project. The only other one that can rival it’s dance-centric tone is Dave Dresden’s edit that brings a bit more of a progressive mood to the track, but still keeps things with the underground sound, rather than opting for the mainstage, festival style. Check out all of the remixes and head over to iTunes to get a copy of the original and remix EP.

[Beautiful] Flume – Never Be Like You (Crywolf Cover)

Flume - Never Be Like You (Crywolf Remix)
Crywolf
Never Be Like You (Flume Cover)

Without a doubt, it is very difficult to live up to expectations when you’re trying to rework a Flume track. Being that we religiously follow Crywolf here at TMN, it’s safe to say that the talented singer/producer slayed this cover of “Never Be Like You” and painted Crywolf all over it.

Sustained vocals and strings highlight the tune and are paired with a slower tempo than the original. Following an epic buildup, the burst of synths and Crywolf’s unique vocals definitely give the song a paradisal and majestic vibe. You’ve probably never heard anything like it, but it will sure be a breath of fresh air. Considering Crywolf being a one-man-band, the level of production here is off the charts.

Available as a free download, this cover of “Never Be Like You” is some of Crywolf’s best work to date. I mean – who wouldn’t mind getting serenaded in heaven by Crywolf?

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!

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.
