Saturday Selection Vol. 9

Saturday Selection

This weeks has been something else, and I’m still catching up after being at Governors Ball this weekend. We’re primed and ready for another slick collection of new tunes, from Louis Futon to the first cut off of midnight’s new EP, so go ahead and jump right into it. Enjoy!


O R I O N – Gold Dust ft. Cammie Robinson

This song is from a little while ago, but it was new to us and instantly caught our ears. O R I O N put together a beautiful brain-melter with “Gold Dust”, and the sparse, but angelic vocals of Cammie Robinson are the icing on the cake. The innate feeling of escapism creeps out throughout the tune, and you’ll want to go explore the world as it plays. Enjoy this one on a bright and day. You’ll feel absolutely wonderful.


SWIMS – Bedrooms

SWIMS is an exciting new duo that combines the best of trap, R&B, and electronic music into a breezy and ethereal creation. Optimized for complete relaxation, “Bedrooms” stands as a strong debut for these two. It’s a serenade with all the right trappings. It hits all the right spots. Soak this one in with a special someone tonight.


midnight – Native America (feat. The Internet)

The combination of midnight and The Internet is impossible to be apathetic about. Touching on the marred past of the United States, these talented people describe the constant push for the best life available in a seductive fashion that gives the message a new appearance. We’ve been hooked on midnight ever since his XXI Labors EP, and seeing him work with The Internet to deliver such a powerful message only solidifies our admiration of his work. Find some time to really sit and reflect on these lyrics.


Goldlink – Unique (Louis Futon Remix)

This one is simply fun. That’s no surprise, coming from Louis Futon. He decided to return to his earlier remix roots by flipping this Goldlink and Anderson Paak original into absolutely irresistible scorcher of a dance tune. We’re not even sure what the best part of it is, but there is one thing we know for sure. It’s ALL great. Kick off the shift into warm weather with this one.


The Geek x Vrv – Coming Up’ Feat Kellylee Evans & Atom

So much soul. The Geek x Vrv never fails to bring out the best funk, hip-hop, and soul crossovers with their material, and “Coming Up” is a vibrant new addition to their stellar sound. Featuring a fourth of C2C and the striking singing of Kellylee Evans, this song triumphs on its 90s rap atmosphere and style that’s revamped and repurposed into a more modern sound. You can’t NOT bob your head. We’re making sure to keep the double negative there just so you know we MEAN it. Throw this tune on when you just want to groove.

Saturday Selection Vol. 8

Saturday Selection

Long weekends are way more exciting than they should be. That’s alright though, because we’re back with more tunes from this week! And what a week it was. May has been an absolutely absurd month of quality releases. Let’s hope it stays this way for a while. Enjoy!


Brandon Locher – Slow Steps

As life rushes around and flies by, stress can pile up without you even noticing. Take some time to alleviate it with the newest ambient tune from Brandon Locher. The warmth of “Slow Steps” juggles an ominous, yet comforting atmosphere with an orchestral presence to give the tune a movie score feel. You’ll feel immersed into a different world as soon as you hit play. Given the chance, that’s all we really want to do at a certain point, so enjoy this one when you’re feeling the need to hit the reset button after a long week.


Manila Killa – Youth (Feat. Satica)

Manila Killa has always managed to create music that instantly improves your day. Between Hotel Garuda and this solo project, he never loses his stride, and the Satica-featuring “Youth” adds another definitive tune to his arsenal. With so many variations of pop music, it gets a little strenuous to pin down an exact style for it, but we wouldn’t want to do that anyway. What we do know is the approach Manila Killa and Moving Castle are taking is equally accessible and compelling, marking a shift into a new wave of genre blending.


EMBRZ – Breathe

After what seemed like a long silence, EMBRZ returned to our SoundCloud feed five months ago with the beautiful “Home.” Now we have the equitably gorgeous “Breathe” gracing our ears. Shifting from his usual beat-driven and chilled-out creations, this Irish producer breaks out into his own take on deep house. There’s more to “Breath” than what that genre usually entails, and a major part of that lies with Pat Byrne’s vocals. Taking a path of four on the floor mixed with somber synths may be a switch up for EMBRZ, but he’s demonstrated that he can create something magnificent no matter the style.


Jorja Smith – Where Did I Go?

Following up the massive hit that is “Blue Lights,” Jorja Smith is back with a reflective and soulful mindset. “Where Did I Go?” exercises restraint production-wise to allow Jorja’s vocals to serenade us into a calm demeanor while her lyrics express a sense of vulnerability coupled with contemplation. Without any hesitation, we can say that Jorja Smith deserves all of your attention and then some. Even with only two (known) songs released at the moment, enough statements have been made with this pair of stellar tunes to merit Jorja as a potential breakout artist for this year. We’ll just have to wait and see!


Crywolf – Slow Burn (Elènne Remix)

This remix gave us shivers. Not only from the already emotional Crywolf lyrics, but also from the careful and calculated transformation that Elénne was sure to masterfully orchestrate. “Cataclasm” was an amazing album from front to back, so reshaping and providing a new context for it is a tall order. Elénne is more than qualified to tackle “Slow Burn,” and we got this wonderful remix as a result. Whether or not you were planning on experiencing a cascade of feelings today, listening to this amazing rendition of Crywolf will do it to you. Enjoy that. It’s a good thing.

[House] Majestic & That Guy – My Boo 2016

Majestic & That Guy
My Boo 2016

Everybody knows of the Running Man Challenge. It’s one of the more viral things on the internet right now. Instead of bringing Ghost Town DJ’s song into 2016 by way of a silly video, Majestic and That Guy decided they were going to flip the track.

The two acts infused a bit more of a house-friendly groove into the song with their interpretation. We still get the memorable lyrics, and then we get some fun-loving piano chords along with small accompaniment that fills out the composition.”My Boo 2016″ has already received support from BBC 1Xtra, as well as several other DJs. Majestic & That Guy cashed in on flipping a great song that has had a ton of social media steam lately. There have been some remixes of this song coming out, but this is easily one of the better ones you are going to find. Random Mandem and New State Music partnered up to release this remix. Check it out now and maybe film your own Running Man Challenge video!

[House] Icarus – Home EP + Remixes


On February 1st of this year, the English act Icarus came out with the bustling single “Home” that featured vocalist AURORA. Together these two musical talents created a memorable record that is still getting its fair share of love all around the world from fans and Djs alike. Now, we have some remixes of “Home” that are just as powerful.

Four remixes were put together, with Icarus calling in some interesting producers to re-shape “Home” into something new. The first remix on the EP comes to us from Kölsch, a Denmark creator who really offered up something interesting with his take on the record. It’s not just any old average electronic remix. The same can be said about Lane 8’s remix, however this flip is a bit more deep and accessible to a wide variety of listeners. Humans & Machines keep the deep house vibes rolling with their remix that is one of the most club-friendly remixes on the project. The only other one that can rival it’s dance-centric tone is Dave Dresden’s edit that brings a bit more of a progressive mood to the track, but still keeps things with the underground sound, rather than opting for the mainstage, festival style. Check out all of the remixes and head over to iTunes to get a copy of the original and remix EP.

’Home (feat. AURORA)’
’Home (feat. AURORA) (Kölsch Remix)’
’Home (feat. AURORA) (Lane 8 Remix)’

[Beautiful] Flume – Never Be Like You (Crywolf Cover)

Flume - Never Be Like You (Crywolf Remix)
Never Be Like You (Flume Cover)

Without a doubt, it is very difficult to live up to expectations when you’re trying to rework a Flume track. Being that we religiously follow Crywolf here at TMN, it’s safe to say that the talented singer/producer slayed this cover of “Never Be Like You” and painted Crywolf all over it.

Sustained vocals and strings highlight the tune and are paired with a slower tempo than the original. Following an epic buildup, the burst of synths and Crywolf’s unique vocals definitely give the song a paradisal and majestic vibe. You’ve probably never heard anything like it, but it will sure be a breath of fresh air. Considering Crywolf being a one-man-band, the level of production here is off the charts.

Available as a free download, this cover of “Never Be Like You” is some of Crywolf’s best work to date. I mean – who wouldn’t mind getting serenaded in heaven by Crywolf?

[Deep-House] Bobby Nourmand – S I S T E R


2016 is shaping up into a banner year for LA based house producer Bobby Nourmand. After taking the underground by storm with his last single “S M O K I N J O E” on The Magician’s Potion Records which recieved support from the likes of Oliver Heldens, Afrojack & Martin Garrix, back in February, Nourmand returns with a crafty slice of deep, dark club aesthetics “S I S T E R”. Using a perfectly synced vocal from one of our generation’s most notable frontmen, Billy Idol, Nourmand weaves swollen bass with sticky synth progressions and brittle guitars, which has resulted in yet another tasteful club tune destined to make its global run.

After his latest run of shows which included packed out houses at Exchange LA, The Delano Beach Club & FDR during Miami Music Week, and at Webster Hall for The Magician’s official EDC afterparty; the rest of the world has begun to take notice of Nourmand’s immensely polished production as well. Keep your eyes peeled for Bobby Nourmand’s next slate of tour dates, and listen to “Sister” above.
