[Electronic] Mutemath – Monument (Kasbo Remix)

Monument (Kasbo Remix)

20 year old Swedish producer Kasbo is set to have a big second half of 2016. He’s just released his version of The Temper Trap’s “Fall Together” and is back at it with the official remix of “Monument” by MUTEMATH. Once again, the young producer has shown his abilities to re-create tracks from their core. Here he’s implanted lush, rolling melodies slowing down the original’s tempo while introducing reconstructed, glitchy vocals coming together for a gracefully produced drop. 

His “World Away” single released on ODESZA’s Foreign Family label has millions of digital streams and is his biggest song to date since release last fall when he supported them on their US tour. I’ve had this tune stuck on repeat and shared with a lot of my friends. As we venture into the tail end of 2016 don’t take your eyes off this rising artist.

[Funk] Goldwash – Need To Hear

Need To Hear [NESTHQ Premiere]

Born Gabe Acheson, Goldwash is a 21-year old composer, singer-songwriter, and producer out of Baltimore.  A classical and jazz-trained pianist, he brings his own unique concoction of existential funk.  Having already caught the eye of Jamz Supernova (“Malady” was premiered on BBCR1 on her show) and Roche Musique, he is now poised to introduce his dynamic and cohesive sound to a worldwide audience in 2016.

“Need To Hear” is already his third single this year. Drawing from a multitude of influences, and premiered on BBCR1 by Australia’s finest tastemaker Anna Lunoe, the record is strong and will definitely receive heavy rotation in my playlists. Don’t sleep and enjoy his latest offering.

[Hip-Hop] Goldlink – Unique (feat. Anderson .Paak)

Unique feat. Anderson .Paak

It is no secret that The Music Ninja crew are fans of the DMV-native Goldlink. Ever since his critically-acclaimed debut mixtape The God Complex hit the web, his rap career has been on a steady projection towards making him one of the greats in the game. From making the XXL Freshman list to teaming up with Soulection and touring around the nation, Goldlink’s definitely been making some major moves.

Last week, fellow DMV native Wale took to his Twitter to drop Goldlink’s latest track “Unique.” The Louie Lastic-produced tune is a little something new from the young emcee but still has that same 90’s club/dance rhythm that has become signature for him with some added disco and go-go music. Link trades in spitting some quick-tongued bars for singing. Fellow newcomer and recent success story Anderson .Paak joins in to take over a couple verses.

Take a listen and be sure to pre-order your copy of the upcoming debut And After That, We Didn’t Talk, which drops Nov.13th.

HiyHiy (WATERBED Remix)

Not only is this track the latest and greatest premiere here on TMN, but it’s also both LostBoyCrow and Waterbed’s debuts on the site and the rest of catalogue finds themselves in good company with this release. LostBoyCrow comes to us from the warm streets of LA where it seems everyone has a dream, but not everyone has the talent or hustle to make it work. He’s only a few releases in but he’s proving himself to be an A&R’s dream come true with his unparalleled skills that will strike gold in today’s R&B market. WATERBED come to us with a Golden State of mind as well, and this certainly won’t be the last time we feature this dreamy duo either. It may be frozen east of the Rockies, but you can still warm up to anything on these two’s catalogue, we promise. As for the remix, it’s a knock out of the park. Airy, energetic, and a nice blend between indie pop & R&B, this track will make waves very soon.
