Ms Fat Booty (WoodysProduce Summer Citrus Remix)
Mos Def may go down in the history books as one of the greatest hip-hop lyricists of all time. As far as I’m concerned, it’s and Andre 3000’s game to lose at this point. Though he has moved into new mediums, there is no denying his artistic capabilities and Ms. Fat Booty was years ahead of its time when it first came out. WoodysProduce is quickly becoming one of Los Angeles’ best kept secret and on his last effort for his Summer Citrus series, he brings new school sounds to the old school classic. Laying down some original guitar work and resampling Aretha’s “One Step Ahead”, the entire composition of the track is shifted and we think you’ll find this version is better suited for your partying needs.
Midnight (Carneyval Remix)
Whether you like their music or not, there is no denying that Coldplay has one of the most dynamic sounds in the mainstream music arena today. No two songs are alike and Chris Martin is like the male Ellie Goulding. Therefore, it’s easy to see why every one is eager is to not only seek musical influence from the juggernauts but also feed off their creativity with their own pieces. Take Carneyval’s remix of “Midnight” for example. By reading the title, you may think the budding New Orleans soundscaper simply reworked a melody or two and called it his own and that is where you are wrong. Carneyval, quite a musician himself, wrote and performed the melodies you hear above on his own piano as well as every other component of the track as well. Yes, that is original saxophone we are hearing as well. The only Coldplay in this song is Martin’s vocals, a true remix.
ALEXA & Unkle Ricky
Luv Sick ($aturn Remix)
For better or worse, the chill trap sound looks like it’ll stick around for a while thanks to the meteoric rise of artists like Slander and 20syl. As long as they keep sounding like this $aturn remix, we aren’t complaining one bit. If this kid is really only 16 years old, the future is brighter than any of us could have ever predicted. This new effort by $aturn will pull at your heartstrings and get your feet moving simultaneously, a very rare feat in today’s music scene. Smooth, polished, and crisp; this song is next level and is coming to you from a high schooler for free.99!
Tobtok ft. Emil Heró
Higher (Avenue Remix)
This past July, we sat down with Tobtek for an interview and a sweet Summer Mix. After learning more about this Swedish DJ/producer, we could not get enough of his incredible song, “Higher” featuring Emil Heró. One of our TMN regulars, Avenue, decided to take us on a groovy detour in his latest remix of “Higher”, in which he sends us soaring into the clouds. Filled with atmospheric reverberated vocals, some spine-tingling synth stabs and a funky, feel good vibe, Avenue takes us higher than we could ever imagine. We guarantee you’ll have this on repeat all afternoon, so make sure to turn the volume to full blast and go get your dancin’ map out – we can’t afford to lose you down this avenue.
The entire Flow-Fi fam consists of a roster filled with incredible talent. Here we have a Miguel bootleg by Manchester producer EphRem. The original is a babymaking masterpiece, yet EphRem cleverly turned it into a soulful electronic mix. The speed of the melody is increased and the pitch is raised, creating these chipmunk-like vocals that flow really well with the overall chillwave synths in the background.
It’s quite amusing how easy this seems, yet how difficult it actually is to alter little things of an original song to create a bootleg. EphRem surely does this Miguel song justice in just three minutes. Go give it a listen and find yourself into the welcoming arms of the Flow-Fi fam.
Orphan's Son (Ekali Remix)
What else is there to be said about Ekali? The dude has quickly become not just a TMN favorite, but a force to be reckoned with in the bass music scene. With only eight tracks under his belt, he’s already racked up nearly 10,000 Soundcloud followers and that number will only continue to grow as industry tastemakers and leading producers keep taking notice. His latest effort is as dark and sinister as it is gorgeous. Eli Muro makes his Ninja debut as Ekali turns “Orphan’s Son” into a broody banger that I think anyone with a pulse can and will enjoy.
Full Crate x Mar
Man X Woman (JAWZ Version)
As we begin to sift through the last few weeks of music, we came across a Full Crate & Mar’s remix of “Man x Woman” from Aussie producer, JAWZ; to say this song is like floating in the clouds is an understatement. Right from the start we are introduced with a harmonious harp melody that builds into a breakdown full of chill, ambient R&B and trap elements that collectively bring forth a new refreshing sound to help sooth the soul. JAWZ is starting to take those future Aussie elements and weave them together to form these eclectic masterpieces that speak to every ear that listens in full. As always, grab your free download and get your feel on the JAWZ way.
