Pipe Down Chachi
Blame (Pipe Down Chachi Remix)
2014 started with a wave of fresh Australian talent producing unique music powerful enough to carve out a signature style that formed a communal identity around the ‘Australian sound’. It wasn’t that long ago at all, but as the year progressed the trend continued to evolve as its popularity proliferated around the globe, and it almost fell victim to its own identity crisis as ‘future’ became the new buzzword to hit the net.
Despite how it sounds, this isn’t a post done in mourning at all, but quite the opposite. This is a declaration that the world-renowned ‘Australian sound’ has not faded away into the background just yet, because there are still plenty of artists out there to be discovered, and where better to find them than the musical hotbed of Sydney. Pipe Down Chachi may be a new name to us here at TMN, but this bright and colorful Calvin Harris remix is just the example we needed to showcase what the scene down-under still has left to offer. In this case, it’s heavy hitting trap kicks and an infectious synth-driven melody that’s bound to stick in your head for days. Soundcloud may have removed the initial upload of this track and taken the wind out of the momentum it was garnering online, but we’re here to return this one to its rightful status and once again give it the attention it deserves. Takes more than that to keep a good tune down!

Jerry Folk Remix
Oh my oh my! Check out this brand new Mario Winans remix by Norway-born producer Jerry Folk. Artists always come up with ways to be innovative and creative when it comes to remixes, and Jerry Folk certainly did the original song justice by adding his own spice to it. It is truly amusing to see how he turns the R&B classic into this housey goodness. The tune starts off with a vocal sample together with a heavy groovin’ synth melody that immediately catches your attention. Following an anticipated buildup, the beat drop steals the spotlight with this future house and disco fusion. The funky bass line to the drop is also a notable and deserves its own shoutout. There is no doubt it is an exceptional remix by an exceptional producer.
Signed under Next Wave Records, Jerry Folk is definitely an exciting artist to watch and making a name for himself as one of the front runners of the label. We can’t wait to see what he has to offer in the future. Make sure to download this awesome remix on his Facebook page here!
Shiner ft. Ginger & The Ghost (option4 Remix)
After storming our pages last week with an utterly groovy remix of Sammy Bananas’ “Money Time” on Fool’s Gold Records, the underground street king of Denver Dance, option4, is back on yet another international tastemaking label, Australian based Sweat It Out, with a deep and glossy remix of Indian Summer’s “Shiner”. option4 rolls the cadence up a bit to suit what has quickly become a stellar signature blend of soul-fueled house and indie-dance while also slathering on a generous helping of punchy kicks and a swinging bassline to the original. With option4 creating such textured and danceable soundscapes with the refined ease and regularity of a twenty-year veteran while simultaneously dragging his fans into deeper waters; it’s no wonder why his layered remixes have been cropping up on some of dance music’s hottest imprints. We’ve been more than tickled with one of our favorite underground dance curators’ more emotive output as of late, and his “Shiner” remix is no different. Stream option4’s remix of Indian Summer’s “Shiner” above and equip that old sweat band (get it?) just in case.
We Are Twin
True Love (White Cliffs Remix)
While much of electronic music’s rising stars are cashing in on the influx of fist-pumping teens and college students flocking towards ‘big-room’ EDM tents at festivals and larger than life, build-up wielding stadium sized tunes; some purveyors of the widespread genre are busy crafting forward thinking, melodious arrangements and expressions. Such a case study is debuting beatsmith, White Cliffs. Rather than assaulting his listeners with the same production kits used within every inch of the mainstream dance community, White Cliffs’ remix of We Are Twin‘s “True Love” is a breath of freshly composed air which receives its luster from a slick two-step drum inflection, subdued high-end percussion and just an utterly gorgeous vocal from We Are Twins. For a premiere track, White Cliffs’ subtle use of vocal chopping resonates across like a true professional musician, keeping the original’s indelible energy intact while fully communicating an educated albeit understated electronic musical point of view. This one can be swiped as a free download here, and we’re highly suggesting you do.
