[Deep-House] Claude Von Stroke – Sugar & Cinnamon (Justin Jay Remix)

Claude Vonstroke
Sugar & Cinnamon (Justin Jay Remix)

Oh, how those filthy and proper artists with the Dirtybird Records camp always seem to hit the nail on the head when it comes to their impeccable slate of tasty-creative dance releases. Dirtybird’s baby brother Justin Jay, whom we had the pleasure of seeing live a few weeks back at Denver’s Snowball Music Festival, dropped this remix for label boss Claude Von Stroke‘s sweat inducing single “Sugar & Cinnamon” and it had us hop-stepping all over our office. The slightly techy, deep-house pulsing cut from Justin Jay comes as part of Von Stroke’s official remix counterpart album for the head honcho’s last LP, Urban Animal, which if you haven’t had the chance to hear yet is a can’t miss for our dance aficionados. Justin Jay sprinkles his forward thinking dance production onto the original through some quirky, snappy percussion – fitting perfectly in line with the rest of Dirtbird’s funky output – an arpeggiated synth progression and a bassline which wouldn’t be out of place on the grittiest of Shiba San or Sirus Hood G-House tracks. We fell all over this one, so if a little bit of dance lean sounds like a great way to enhance your day, then you’ve found the perfect tune.

[Trap] The Chainsmokers – #SELFIE (Prince Fox Remix)

The Chainsmokers
#SELFIE (Prince Fox #Remix #Edit)

We already know what you’re thinking, “#SELFIE? Please no.” Don’t worry, we aren’t here to get The Chainsmokers viral jam stuck in your head, but let’s face it, you’re probably trying to decide what filter to use for the selfie you just took. XX Pro or Valencia? We understand you want to look tan.

After perusing through SoundCloud, we stumbled across yet another #SELFIE remix and thought to ourselves, “not this again”. Little did we know, we had just discovered the most hyphy remix of this track to date. New York producer/student, Sam Lassner – AKA Prince Fox – decided to twerkify The Chainsmokers’ #SELFIE and give us another justified reason to take narcissism to the next level. As if we aren’t egotistic enough in this world, Prince Fox made it clear that being self-absorbed is acceptable by society…especially if you’re able to dance it out at the same time.

With a roaring bass-line strong enough to set off the San Andreas fault, Prince Fox puts his signature tweak on this revolutionary gem and takes #SELFIE to a dimension full of 808s and grimy beats – two of which are in this song. Have a listen for yourself but make sure you have your cameras ready.

Exclusive Interview with Victor Niglio [TMN RESIDENT ARTIST]

Victor Niglio
Diplo pres. Diplo & Friends (Victor Niglio Guest Mix)

As we continue our march through May, we’re delighted to bring you a one on one conversation with our favorite Philly-born Lothario. Check out what he had to say about bringing his family to his shows, what producers we should keep an eye on, and who slings up the best cheesesteak in town.

TMN: Hey Victor! Thank you for taking some time to chat with us today, and even more so, being our resident artist for the month of May. Let’s kick things off by talking about something we’ve noticed over the past few months. You actually bring your whole family out (grandma, mom, dad, aunts, etc) to your shows. This isn’t something you see everyday. What made you decide to bring the whole Niglio clan?

VN: It wasn’t really me deciding to bring them, it was them deciding they wanted to come! Kinda epic when your grandmom asks when she can come see your next show.

TMN: What was their reaction like?

VN:They all LOVE it. They have more fun than most people at the clubs, I’d say.

TMN: From Vlogs, to producer tips, to teaming up with clothing companies, you’ve always been very interactive with your fans. Talk to us about what inspires to to connect more.

VN: I used to be a fan of DJs before I was one, and seeing the slightest bit of interaction between DJ & fan was really the coolest thing to me as a fan. I’m so interactive because it’s what I would want if I was a fan of myself (lol what)

TMN: Alright, let’s head back to the beginning. You’re were classically trained on the piano as a child, and it wasn’t until you heard Bloody Beetroots that you wanted to make the switch. What was it about “Warp” that really caught your ear?

VN: Warp is pure energy. It’s one of those tracks you can show to someone who doesn’t have a clue, but they listen to it, tap their foot, and say ‘wow this is cool!’. So me, writing orchestral music in Logic, hearing warp for the first time, I’m tapping my foot and saying ‘wow, I want to make whatever this is!’

TMN: Speaking of those guys, they’re heavily rooted in hard rock/heavy metal. Do you have some of those same influences?

VN: Yea, I was totally into that scene. Alternative rock, heavy metal, grindcore. I was and still am a big fan of bands like Chelsea Grin, We Came As Romans, August Burns Red, Enter Shikari, and even stuff like The Killers and Say Anything, so the rock influence of ‘Warp’ totally helped grab the metal kid inside of me.

[Melodic Dubstep] John Legend – All Of Me (Kasum Remix)

John Legend
All Of Me (Kasum Remix)[FREE DL]

John Legend has to be one of the most difficult people to remix. Having one of the best voices in the industry, taking on “All of Me” has to be a daunting task for an up and coming producer. That’s where Kasum steps in.

This NYC-born, Boston University student has a lot to balance already. Back when I was in college (which I won’t divulge just how long ago that was) I had a hard enough time managing my schedule with classes alone. Somehow this Sophmore found a way to put his spin on a legendary track, and did so in a way that’s ultimately extremely complimentary to the original.

Utilizing the existing piano work and Legend’s voice, Kasum crafted a melodic dubstep tune that charges with emotions. The added drum work brings in anticipation and a little bit of aggression for the razor sharp synths, which gives this tune larger-than-life feel that will get playtime across the blogosphere for months to come.

[Nu-Disco] Pharrell ft. Justin Timberlake – Brand New (Slinger Remix)

Brand New (Slinger Remix)

There is something almost symbiotic about the relationship between disco dance vibes and Mondays. One pulls its listener into visions of happy, sunshine soaked dance floors while the other is slightly more bleak in its undertone, pulling your psyche into a paradoxical direction altogether. Yin and Yang. Sweet and salty. Balance. Which, not to wax philosophically for much longer, is why we love to pair glitzy club tunes with the most dreaded day of the week. Today, the mysterious Slinger popped up with a very driven and elegant slice of disco induced house rhythms that commanded the undivided attention of our cochlear cavities from its onset. Remixing two of the most influential artists of our time can be an arduous task, but Slinger’s slinky kicks and pointed nu-disco percussion paired with the unmistakable and altogether dreamy vocal reverberations of Pharrell and Justin Timberlake has resulted in quite the hooky dance tune in the form of a syrupy Summer nu-disco remix. The vibe painted onto “Brand New” by Slinger is one of high energy poolside day parties, which I think we could all be yearning for right about now. Slinger is most certainly an act to keep your ears tuned into, and you can bet that ours will be too. Check it out above.

Midnight (Giorgio Moroder Remix)

The father of disco and electronic music as we know it, Giorgio Moroder has effortlessly taken on an impressive feat. Remixing one of the best voices of our generation, this famed Italian producer has created a progressive journey through the utilization of Chris Martin’s glorious vocals. In a an incredibly melodic, piano-centric remix, this South Tyrol artist is a long way from his roots way back in 1966.

Crafting a trance-inspired, canorous journey through soaring synths and a slow, progressing beat, we’re left with something that’s truly stunning.
