RHAIN – Tall Ships (Henry Green Remix) [TMN Premiere]

RHAIN
Tall Ships (Henry Green Remix)

UK-based songstress RHAIN caught the music world’s attention in 2016 with her enchanting, eerie voice and inventive lyricism. “Tall Ships,” the closer on her debut EP, Oscar November Echo, is a gorgeous, somber reflection on the passage of time and moving on. Today, we’re excited to premiere an equally powerful remix from Henry Green, one of our favorite up ‘n coming producers/vocalists.

Green’s take on “Tall Ships” holds a similar feel as the original but takes a completely different angle. Green lures the listener in with a 4-note piano loop accompanied by inching percussion and a faint guitar. Just before dropping into pure bliss, RHAIN’s vocals take center stage–the only time when you can make out the lyrics. The remainder of the song interlaces and layers her voice with subtle percussion taking full advantage of its emotional depth. That beautiful repurposing makes for a listen that’s sure to melt away the stresses of the week. Get lost in this one above.

[Trap] Salvatore Ganacci – Talk (Retrohandz Remix)

Salvatore Ganacci
Talk (Retrohandz Remix)

Get your trap arms ready. Retrohandz came through with an extra hot remix of “Talk” by Salvatore Ganacci that just came out on Refune. AS epic as the duo’s mustaches are, this track creeps up on that prestige.

The Italian’s take on “Talk” is both dirty and clean at the same time. The gritty basses will stick themselves in your head, refusing to leave for quite some time. The production from beginning to end, with every little detail being taken care of, is about as crisp as you can get. They really put something cool together and even mixed things up a bit in the middle to add some dimension to the remix. If you want a copy of this and to check out the other remixes on the EP, you can do so through digital services today.

[Event Preview] Joe Goddard (DJ Set) @ Bar Standard – 5/17 – Denver, CO

Fresh off of the release of genre-busting LP Electric Lines (from which you can stream “Lose Your Love” & “Music Is the Answer” below), Hot Chip founding member and all around production kingpin Joe Goddard has kicked off 2017 glowingly, finding himself in the midst of a lengthy run of North American and European performances. Over the next few weeks, Goddard’s schedule is littered with sets across the U.S. including nights in New York City (5/19), Chicago (5/26), and Miami (5/27); and we’re all kinds of perked up to catch the studio wizard in the flesh, especially on the heels of Electric Lines. Back in December we featured the music video for “Lose Your Love”, which is just one of the many bright spots on his latest long player. Goddard flexes his production muscle effortlessly throughout Electric Lines, tackling the structures and sounds of disco, house, pop, R&B & techno head on, and coming out on the other end largely unscathed. If we’re going off of Goddard’s latest release, we can expect an eclectically programmed set filled with many of his contributions to the worlds of dance and electronic music.

Tomorrow night Joe Goddard will man the decks at the intimate Bar Standard in Denver, CO on behalf of our friends at TheHundred Presents, for which you can still get tickets for here. Enjoy our mini preview playlist in anticipation of Goddard’s remaining U.S. tour dates, and for our Denver friends, we’ll see you on the floor.

[Trap] Keys N Krates & KRANE – Right Here (Nurko Remix)

Keys N Krates & KRANE
Right Here (Nurko Remix)

“Right Here” from Keys N Krates and KRANE is without a doubt a masterpiece. It’s not easy to take on such a collaboration, but that’s just what Nurko did with the Dim Mak original. Released as a free download, this flip is a cut time treat that shakes the originals foundation up into something entirely new.

Nurko is no stranger to putting out great remixes, so when we saw he took this one on, it was promising. We had full faith he would nail it and he turned out a solid remix, taking “Right Here” in a new direction, one with a bit more trap and a bit less twerk. The New Jersey songster dropped this one after coming off an original EP on Lowly Palace that you need to check out if you haven’t yet. Before you do that, make sure to get this “Right Here” remix for free.
