Wonder (Original Mix)
After first debuting here on TMN with “Thumpin” back in April, 18 year old house stunner Sylent Efx returns with yet another eerily mature portion of dance music with the Kanye West sampling “Wonder” (which itself was actually sampled from Labi Siffre’s “My Song” for a quick history lesson). While this young spark plug may not quite be known globally just yet, his latest tune which comes to the world in the form of a ‘TMN Premiere’, has already seemed to have taken on a life of its own. After being aurally debuted on the almighty Ministry of Sound Radio via an option4 guest mix all the way back in July; we’ve already had the pleasure of hearing some of our favorite DJ’s and producers playing this one out through some heavy club monitors and have been waiting not so patiently to drop it since. The real allurement on this one comes by way of an irresistible, swinging piano hook propped up by a scampering hi-hat shuffle and of course that classic vocal snippet. These elements collide together like chamomile and cream; again signaling Sylent Efx’s welcome arrival on the house music block and not only a dance, but overall musical sophistication clearly lacking amongst the droves of bedroom producers authoring blog hits these days. This one is being given away for free through our friends at digital house imprint Night Supply so snag a free mp3 here and shuffle those sneakers when Sylent Efx’s “Wonder” hits your speakers.
Take Me With You (Clementine & The Galaxy Remix)
Roses and Revolutions have one of the more radio-ready sounds we’ve heard in quite some time. Singer/Songwriter Alyssa Coco has a voice that’s seems like it’s been refined over decades of professional experience, seemingly flawless in her execution.
While this NY indie rock duo might have a sound suited for top-40, they’re certainly crossing over journalistic planes with this recent collaboration. Calling on fellow New Yorker Clementine and the Galaxy, Coco and bandmate Matt Merrit have been given a electronic makeover, rife with a synth heavy melody and dancy beat worthy of the stingiest of indie bloggers.
We’ve always had an affinity for both the popular, and the obscure, which is why we’re always overjoyed to see unique collaborations. In this instance, these two styles are fused together to provide us with a grin-inducing tune to carry us this Tuesday.
Kanye (feat. sirenXX) [ALMOND & SAMME Remix]
Another week, another Chainsmokers post but I promise you this one is well worth your while. “Kanye” has been the self-empowerment song of the summer, and it certainly slaps too. If the original didn’t inspire you enough, it certainly did for Almond & Samme, two upcoming producers who make their Ninja debut tonight. Although this isn’t the first time the two have teamed up, as Yeezus himself would say, this one is God level. With festival season just starting up down south in hotbeds like Australia, Brazil, and the South Pacific, look for this energetic, upbeat edit to pick up some serious steam and support. What may sound like stereotypical progressive house melodies on the surface turns out to be extremely intricate and those vocal chops at the end are something else. Be like Kanye and jam out to this one time.
ICE AGE (SMOKO ONO REMIX)
If there’s one thing we’ve learned about Smoko Ono over the last year, it’s that the Chitown beatmaker can virtually do no wrong. For his latest exploit, Smoko grabs hold of Denzel Curry‘s “Ice Age” and uses his wizardry behind the boards to cool things down well below sub-zero temperatures. Steeped in bubbling, hazy production, the droning vocals come to life in this remake, which makes for a much louder, yet relaxing listen. This remix will be featured on Smoko’s upcoming Slackin N Makin Vol 1 EP, which is set to drop in early November.
Felix Jaehn feat. Chris Meid
One Last Time Remix
Respected German producer Felix Jaehn just released this juicy Jaymes Young remix titled “One Last Time”. Also helped produce the track was London-based producer Chris Meid, who contributed to perfect this chill house goodness. Together they completely flipped the mood of the Jaymes Young song and turned it into this beachy and chill house tune, while keeping his vocals as the spotlight. The tropical synths and the sustained vocals really give it feel-good vibes. It is unlike any cliche house music you’ve listened to because of the slower paced beat and wave-like background noises.
This gem goes to showcase how talented these artists are for their ability to cross sub-genres while staying true to their music. Felix Jaehn is definitely one to watch, as he’s soon becoming one of the front runners of his genre and style of music.

Say My Name (RAC Mix)
You know those tracks that instantly lift your spirits from the minute you press play; those songs where even on your worst of days, you can’t help but find your foot tapping along to the beat? They are those songs that make it seem like the sun is shining on us when the only things above us are rain clouds.
RAC is an artist that has mastered the skill of producing music that will inevitably elevate anyone’s mood. Most recently, he’s exercised this skill on his remix of ODESZA’s “Say My Name.” Though we have encountered many remixes of In Return’s standout track, RAC’s was one that definitely caught our attention.
Opening with voice samplings of Zyra followed by an upbeat chord progression, the track eventually builds into one big conglomerate of musical sunshine. Press play and get ready to watch as a smile forms across your face.
