All The Way (aywy. & Sh?m Edit)
We’re getting wavy tonight wavy, Ninjas. Whoever says R&B is dead is clearly no friend of mine; in fact I’d argue it’s in a new renaissance. Usher, JT, and John Legend are just a few names of artists who have revitalized their careers recently and the future looks bright with stars like MNEK and Craig David on the horizon. Luckily for us, the homies aywy. and Sh?m share the same viewpoint and are able to recognize real when it crosses their path. I’m assuming Craig David is to the UK as Jennifer Lawrence is to us, so let these two take you back to 2005 with a twist. Share this with your parents, your friends, your landlord, doesn’t matter. This song is literally for everybody.
Runaway (Maths Time Joy Remix)
Maths Time Joy may go down in the history books as one of the most criminally underrated artists of our generation. He is on the radar of most indie and eclectic blogs, but he hasn’t fully penetrated the mainstream circuit yet. As for Electric Youth, they truly are the gift that keeps on giving to the blogosphere. Add the two together and you get one of the best productions you will hear all weekend. Though minimal at times, MTJ’s edit sparks so much energy into “Runaway”, it’s practically contagious. I challenge you to listen to this without a smile on your face; it simply can’t be done.

KISSLAND (YUME Bootleg Edit)
YUME is an absolute enigma. His “Hold My Liquor” remix was one of my favorite tracks of 2013 but he took it off his Soundcloud before we could share it around. He’s been tinkering on and off since and one of his greatest pieces thus far his is interpretation of The Weeknd’s “Kissland”. The Jersey boy brings forth one of the most indescribable, ethereal soundscapes you will ever hear. We are truly at a loss for words with this remix, it is that gorgeous. Here’s hoping Yume sees this and knows he has fans that want him to keep showcasing his music to the world.
Beating Heart (Steve James Remix)
Progressive house is the gift that keeps on giving. While the spotlight of the electronic music scene has shifted onwards to big room house, future bass, and trap, progressive house producers continue to churn out excellent product like it’s 2011 in Sweden all over again. Steve James just might be the future of the subgenre so it’s with great pleasure that we are able to share this one today. Ellie Goulding is a supreme being and every producer dreams about the day when they can make their own remix of her ethereal talent. James takes that step in his career with “Beating Heart”. It’s a gorgeous melody interwoven beautifully with Ellie’s vocals and you can expect this one to be a TMN favorite for months to come!
Mirror Maru (Melvv Bootleg)
There’s something truly enticing about this bootleg of Cashmere Cat’s “Mirror Maru” from Milwaukee producer, Melvv. We don’t see too many solid edits/remixes/bootlegs of Cashmere’s infectious productions, however, that changed when Melvv popped up into our lives. His take on “Mirror Maru” left us in a much happier, peppy state of mind; flooded with catchy beats, jivey piano melodies, and those oh so tasty Cashmere Cat elements, Melvv sends us to heaven and back in this bouncy bootleg. This might be the tune of the day, but we’ll leave that up to you to decide. Grab your free download and saturate your Saturday with some Cashmere and Melvv because we’re off to go hunt for more music to feed you.
Ms Fat Booty (WoodysProduce Summer Citrus Remix)
Mos Def may go down in the history books as one of the greatest hip-hop lyricists of all time. As far as I’m concerned, it’s and Andre 3000′s game to lose at this point. Though he has moved into new mediums, there is no denying his artistic capabilities and Ms. Fat Booty was years ahead of its time when it first came out. WoodysProduce is quickly becoming one of Los Angeles’ best kept secret and on his last effort for his Summer Citrus series, he brings new school sounds to the old school classic. Laying down some original guitar work and resampling Aretha’s “One Step Ahead”, the entire composition of the track is shifted and we think you’ll find this version is better suited for your partying needs.
Midnight (Carneyval Remix)
Whether you like their music or not, there is no denying that Coldplay has one of the most dynamic sounds in the mainstream music arena today. No two songs are alike and Chris Martin is like the male Ellie Goulding. Therefore, it’s easy to see why every one is eager is to not only seek musical influence from the juggernauts but also feed off their creativity with their own pieces. Take Carneyval’s remix of “Midnight” for example. By reading the title, you may think the budding New Orleans soundscaper simply reworked a melody or two and called it his own and that is where you are wrong. Carneyval, quite a musician himself, wrote and performed the melodies you hear above on his own piano as well as every other component of the track as well. Yes, that is original saxophone we are hearing as well. The only Coldplay in this song is Martin’s vocals, a true remix.
