Notaker – Feel The Rain (Extended Mix) [TMN PREMIERE]

Notaker
Feel The Rain (Extended Mix)

Before there were music blogs, DJs collaborating with pop stars, and gigantic, sprawling festivals in every major city, this scene was quite different. The only time raves got their spotlight in the media was when they were being drug through the mud. You didn’t get a wristband shipped to your house in a fancy package, either. You had to wait months, if not years, to see your favorite artist come to town. When they did get booked, you would have to call a number on your ticket to see where the party was at, which, most of the time, was in the middle of nowhere.

Along with the scene itself, music has expectedly changed since then, but today’s premiere brings back feelings of youthful nostalgia from all the way back before this millennium. St. Louis-based Notaker is relatively new to the game, but he brings with him influences that go back well beyond his time. It hasn’t taken others long to notice, either, garnering label support from Tommie Sunshine’s Brooklyn Fire, Zero Three, and Jaytech’s Positronic.

It’s no secret that two of the most popular genres from the early days have fallen behind newer genres and subgenres, but “Feel The Rain” should reel some of those listeners back to trance’s enchanting allure. It does what most great trance songs do – evoke emotion. You can feel this track through every keystroke of the uplifting piano melody and each smooth rolling arc of the bassline, both of which are accentuated by calming atmospheric elements and echoing vocal samples. It’s truly a listening journey, and one that will assuredly help you through your work week.

[House] Lane 8 – Midnight

Lane 8
Midnight

With the clarity of hindsight, it is apparent that Lane 8 went above and beyond to make his mark on 2015. In a year that saw, countless remixes, the release of his debut album Rise, an extensive touring schedule, and an interview with The Music Ninja, San Francisco’s own Lane 8 kept himself very busy.

In an attempt to start 2016 with the most consistent and diligent producers of the year, I made a point to attend Lane 8’s New Years Eve set at the annual Snowglobe Music Festival in Lake Tahoe. As the clock struck 12:00, the producer faded into an unfamiliar, minimalistic piece. As the song progressed, additional layers were introduced and the more familiar aspects of a Lane 8 production began to take shape. The uplifting, electronic song he premiered that night, without introduction, was released last week, titled “Midnight”.

The energy from this deep house masterpiece is infectious early on and continues to impress, through the subtle insertion of its many technical elements, for the full duration of 7 minutes. Lane 8 fans can stay up to date with his latest productions via Soundcloud or by catching him live on tour.
