Shoulda Known Better (Bear Mountain Remix)
Let’s face it. There are not too many positives to Monday mornings. You’re probably worn out from the weekend, and the thought of digging in for an eight hour work day is giving you the chills. We do have some good news for you though. With Monday comes new music and with new music comes a little ray of sunshine for the start of your week.
LA-based Steffaloo (Steph Thompson) recently released the second single from her collaborative electronic album Heart Beats.Teaming up with Windy City native Different Sleep, they dialed in a dreamy pop song that slowly drifts through layered atmospheric elements, and calming percussion.
With the minimalist sound of “Shoulda Known Better,” we were anxiously awaiting a few remixers to pull out some elements and create something that is both complimentary to the original and something entirely unique. Enter Bear Mountain, who hail from one of this writer’s favorite cities in the world, Vancouver. You’re probably familiar with this four piece from their blogosphere smash hit, “Congo.” Taking a departure from their worldly sound that we all fell in love with on that release, they’ve dialed up a sultry dance tune complete heavy deep house elements, chopped up vocal samples and a pronounced bassline.
In The Air (SNBRN Remix)
Some musicians carry with them a coveted ability to breathe new life into songs with which the general slate of listeners thought had long run its course. This morning we have the felicitous opportunity to feature an artist whom carries such a skill and is making a TMN debut in the form of a premiere; Los Angeles house and disco distributor, SNBRN. With only a pair of official releases to the SNBRN moniker on his Soundcloud, both originals, this time around SNBRN has taken Morgan Page’s “In The Air” and distinctly lacquered on his sunny-addictive club sound. SNBRN weaves compositional Indie-Dance and Nu-Disko elements with a slick deep-house groove and bass line, resulting in an even more emotive version of the tune; which we sure as heck didn’t think was possible. Furthermore, Angela Mcluskey’s unforgettable vocal stems coalesce superbly within such an uplifting, groovy sea of sounds. About the track SNBRN had this to say: “I’m kicking off the summer with a pool friendly remix of Morgan Page’s classic, ‘In The Air’. Enjoy this free remix on the beach, in your cubical, or wherever you may be.” We surely will, and for those ready to add this to your personal libraries, grab the free download here.

Against The Night (BLVCK CEILING Remix)
There’s something dark brewing up in the pacific northwest, and it goes by the name of BLVCK CEILING. If there was ever any doubt that the occvlt was alive and well, one listen through this remix will prove otherwise.
Tackling a quirky tune from New England electronic R&B outfit Child Actor, this up-and-coming producer has paid proper tribute to the original by harnessing essential ingredients from this duo that so often flips the bird to genres. Maintaining the original haunting, Tim Burton-esque melody, BLVCK CEILING has dialed this lead single up with some bangin’ percussion work and dark, ominous synths. Couple those in with some trap-style rolling hi-hats, and this remix has a vibe all its own, while still giving the listener plenty to latch onto from the original.
Summertime Sadness (Vanilla Ace & Pyrros Bootleg)- Vanilla Ace vs Lana Del Rey
It’s Friday, which for a few of us Ninjas means our mind is on one thing: dancing. What better way to kick off our favorite day of the week than with one of our long kept house secrets, London’s Vanilla Ace. This little edit; which came to fruition in collaboration with Pyrros, takes Vanilla Ace’s “Don’t Go” and slathers it with Lana Del Rey’s candy-sweet incantations from her anthemic “Summertime Sadness”. Pyrros and Vanilla Ace’s bootleg actually popped up on our Soundcloud a few days ago, but we felt a need to share heading into a musically packed weekend to get our hips gyrating in advance. Perhaps one of the most consistent house producers at the moment with what seems like at least one release per week on some of this writer’s favorite labels including Andre Crom’s Off Recordings, Sharam Jey’s Bunny Tiger, Rob Made’s Sleazy G/Sleazy Deep imprint and more that span underground dance genres from Deep and G-House/Funk to Indie-Dance and Nu-Disko; Vanilla Ace’s output wields a consistency and polish which new producers should be utterly envious of. It’s rare we’re able to feature a free download from Mr. Ace, so we were thrilled when we learned he’d be giving this one away in exchange for a quick Facebook “Like”. Snag a copy here, and we’ll see all of you out on the floor soon!
