When A Fire Starts To Burn (Freestyle)

As one of the hottest names in hip-hop right now, it’s pretty evident that Vic Mensa‘s flame isn’t about to burn out anytime soon. Continuing along with that theme then, the Windy City spitter brings that same smoldering intensity to his remix of a “When A Fire Starts To Burn,” one of the standout singles from his tourmates Disclosure. Never failing to deliver quality bars, the SaveMoney representative steps up the tempo a bit to keep up with the pulsating beat, showcasing some surprisingly versatility as he lands some quick witted punchlines and even finds time to send some quick shoutouts to recent collaborators like Disclosure (obviously), Smoko Ono, Kaytranada, Rockie Fresh and Tokyo Shawn. Between this and last week’s “Magic” remix, it’s clear Vic has no problem with stepping out of his boundaries as he prepares for a takeover in 2014. It’s all just a matter of when at this point.

ZHU Does An ‘OutKast’ Cover, And It’s The Sexiest Thing You’ll Hear All Day


Moves Like Ms Jackson.

This Disclosure-esque remix that combines 4 classic OutKast anthems, has got everyone here at TMN wondering who is behind this glorious track titled “Moves Like Ms. Jackson”. It showed up in our inbox last night, and we have no idea who the artist is, whether it’s an A-List artist like Disclosure, or just an up-comer that clearly gets it. The artist recreates covers the classic tracks: “The Way You Move,” “So Fresh, So Clean,” “Ms. Jackson,” and “The Whole World,” and blends it perfectly with some flawless bass lines and mind blowing synth work. By the end of this track you’ll most likely have a margarita in hand and be surrounded by gorgeous naked women…if you play your cards right. Cheers.

[TMN PREMIERE] Rudimental – Not Giving In (Jontron Remix)

Not Giving In (Jontron Remix)

When Denver based Producer/DJ Jontron isn’t partnered with Dragon, playing one of Colorado’s numerous festivals, or opening for some of the biggest acts at Beta Nightclub, he’s busy making beats. This long-time Denver favorite recently sat down to put a deep house spin on Rudimental’s emotional drum n bass ballad, featuring John Newman and Alex Claire.

With a sultry deep house tempo, the horns and the repeating “Not Givin’ In” pay homage to the original, while taking on a groovy persona worthy of any dancefloor. In fact, we’re pretty sure you’ll catch this one at Beta sometime really soon.

[House] Chromeo ft. Toro Y Moi – Come Alive (Le Youth Remix)

Come Alive (Le Youth Remix)

There’s absolutely no denying the immense pop power of Chromeo and Toro Y Moi‘s latest collusion “Come Alive”, which is without a doubt one of the catchiest and alluring tunes in everyone’s stream of consciousness at the moment, and to think any more energy could be symbiotically added on top was pretty far fetched before today. Enter Le Youth. The enigmatic L.A. based House and Nu-Disco producer – who by the way throws down some of the funnest live sets going on in the house clubs right now – impels a heavy dose of vigorous hi-hat shuffle, and four-four kick to bring both Dave1 and Chaz Bundick’s unmistakable vocals straight into the dance hall. Our real sense of enjoyment on Le Youth’s remix however was an impeccable employment of that tried and true classic house piano a la Marshall Jefferson that was made so famous all the way back in ’86, giving off a vibrant shine while adding another layer of depth to the entire movement. It’s early, but we assume more producers will take a crack at reassembling “Come Alive”, but for us right now, Le Youth takes the cake.

[Chill/House] Lucia – Days (Paul Gilmore Remix)

Lucia PG
Days (Paul Gilmore Remix)

We’ve become obsessed with Austrian producer Paul Gilmore‘s remix of Lucia‘s crooning single “Days”, so it was high time we were able to share this entrancing piece of dance music with you Ninjas. The rework pushes off simply enough with a lightly plucked acoustic guitar progression and a bit of clicky percussion, while slowly strengthening its base through a deep, pounding bass kick. After the ambient intro settles itself into its hypnotic groove, we’re hit with a bouncy lead synth line which flits along aerially, giving off the same effect a layer of icing gives to a birthday cake. Furthermore, Lucia’s incantations are stained with exactly the necessary amount of reverb as we’re treated to the vocal track in its entirety; but those borderline pleas of “Never Listen” which echo as a chorus of sorts, make us want to do the exact opposite and just keep on listening. This was the consummate choice to pair with the frigid weather in our home offices, as atmospherically it matches superbly well, but also got us shaking our Ninja hips for some added warmth while we are at our desks. Download yourself a digital copy via dropify while you’re here, we promise you won’t be remotely disappointed.
