[Progressive House] American Authors – Best Day Of My Life (Gazzo Radio Edit)

American Authors
Best Day Of My Life (Gazzo Radio Edit)

Get your feels ready. New Jersey native Gazzo has dialed up an inspiring vocal house remix of the ever-so-popular American Authors tune “Best Day of My Life.”

Just in time for festival season, we’re offered up an energetic take on one of the hottest set of lyrics out there. While some of you may scoff and say they’re cheesy, we know you’re secretly singing them in your head. It’s okay. You can appreciate a catchy hook without being lame.

Given the natural uplifting nature of this song as a whole, adding some piano keys and spiraling synths were only a natural progression in this song’s ascension. We’d like to offer a sincere thank you to Gazzo for giving us the perfect tune to play at our Coachella pool party.

[Indie-Dance/G-House] Dr. Fresch – You’re My Obsession

Dr. Fresch
You're My Obsession (ft. Nate Dogg & Animotion)

In the span of just a few recent releases, L.A.’s Dr. Fresch has quickly become one of our go-to sources of consistently proper Disko and House music. We last featured the line-towing producer with the release of a self-titled EP on his own Prep School Recordings imprint, which we fell head over heels for and today we’re happy to bring TMN another slice of the Dr. Fresch picture. Fusing vocal elements from two classic tracks -Animotion’s sticky sweet 80′s heater “Obsession” spliced with a tinge of Nate Dogg’s “I Got Love”- “You’re My Obsession” occupies a unique space between mainstream and underground while exuding the kind of dance credibility most producers yearn for. It was out of the blue that Dr. Fresch was mused to produce this one, from a classic video game session of GTA: Vice  City as Animotion’s hypnotic anthem struck an inspirational chord with the producer, undoubtedly while virtually mowing down hoards of police and innocent civilians (because we hear that’s what goes on in those games). He’s been quoted as saying “I was playing GTA: Vice City a couple months back and got inspired to remix my favorite track from the game, “Obsession”. Then, I sprinkled a little Nate Dogg vocal on top, and this is what I came up with.” Well as simple as that sounds, we know there was much more to it than that but we really, really like it.

Bad Suns on The Cure, Tycho and Never Used BBQ Sauce [TMN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW]

Bad Suns
Cardiac Arrest (WoodysProduce Remix)

There’s no denying that Woodland Hills four piece Bad Suns are on the up and up. With gaining radio love and backing from Vagrant records, these fellas are taking their post-punk sounds to the masses. With that in mind, we wanted to get a few quick questions answered by frontman Christo. Check out what he had to say about being influenced by The Cure, who their dream collaboration would be, and the always present but never use BBQ sauce.

TMN: Hey guys! Thank you so much for taking some time to answer a few questions for us. We loved your show in Denver! Let’s kick this off by talking about your journey up until this point. How did you guys start off?

Christo: Gavin and I met in school. Aside from that, we all met through music and jumping around from band to band.

TMN: What were those early times like? What were you guys writing about?

Christo: Miles, Gavin, and I have been playing in a band together for five years now. We’d have band practice every day, after school. From the beginning, it was apparent that we were all people with the same level of passion for playing music. We’ve always kept at it, and we’ve worked at getting better, over the years. By the time we met up with Ray, our friends were applying to colleges, or already in college, and we were set on making this band work.

TMN: One thing that was undeniably apparent was the set of lungs on Christo. Good god. Did those come from years of vocal practice or was god just smiling down on you the day you were born?

Christo: I always get so surprised upon hearing comments like that. In our old bands, my voice was always a lot of what was holding us back. I never really gained full control of it, until recently. I don’t know how to answer the question, but I really appreciate the compliment.

TMN: Let’s fast forward to signing with Vagrant. That’s one label that has to be overwhelming to get an email from. Not only have they carried some massive names in punk music, but tons of notable indie rock acts as well. Talk to us about that moment.

Christo: It was great, as you could imagine. The fact that record labels were reaching out, at all, was surreal. As soon as we met with them to get to know one another and discuss the band, it was clear that we were on the same page.

Style of Eye
Kids (MAARCOS 'Carnival' Remix)- Out now!

Let’s face it. Unless you’re living the island life, rocking Ray Bans and flip flops, you’re pretty much in the midst of a nasty winter. Snow, sleet, freezing rain, sub zero tempatures and all of the rest of that less than desirable climactic conditions has everyone sporting bulky sweaters, long coats and weatherproof boots.

It’s a good thing we have tasty tunes from folks like MAARCOS to heat up the dance floor, and provide a tropical oasis, even if just for one night. Fresh off the back of his monster hit ‘Blaze’ on Dirty South’s Phazing Records, this Aussie has offered up a real nice ‘Carnival Remix’ of Style Of Eye’s ‘Kids’, which dropped Feb 21st at Beatport via Sony.

Take a gander at the energetic melody progression coupled with some a cinematic strings sample and some hefty kicks. One listen through and you’ll be wishing you were in the club getting your sweat on.

[Funky] Big Boi – Objectum Shalamar (Feat. Phantogram)

Objectum Shalamar

While a new album from Outkast seems like nothing more than a pipe dream at this point, we can at least count on Big Boi to always deliver some quality material. For the fifth installment of his “Mashup Mondays” series, Sir Lucious Left Foot brings back the funk, with an 80′s inspired remix that blends the disco stylings of Shalamar‘s “A Night To Remember” with the Phantogram assisted single, “Objectum Sexuality.” The end result is a groovy revamp that may even trump the original. We’d even go so far as to say that this remix–along with its equally impressive visuals–is the best in the series so far. We’ve still got more four more entries to go though, before we can make a full judgment on that.
