Vanic X K.Flay
Here at TMN, we want to provide our ninjas with only the best of the best. In order to do this, we have to sit down and sift through tons and tons of submissions until we come across those that leave us with goosebumps. As writers, we tend to form relationships with the artists that stick out to us and continue to amaze us over time with their work.
Most recently we were accosted with a track, “Can’t Sleep,” by familiar names Vanic and Kay.Flay. After a single listen, we knew the track had “irresistible” written all over it. Maintaining a similar sound as his prior release, “Circles,” Vanic once again conquers his rejuvenating trap sound, which is fitted ideally with the combination of sultriness and raspiness of K.Flay’s voice.
From his past two releases, it is clear that Vanic is raising his own standards. We can only now predict even better things to come from the Vancouver producer as his sound seems to evolve by the minute.

Get TF Out My Face (Mr. Carmack Remix)
Spring Shit Ft. Jacuzzi
Just about anyone who surfs Soundcloud regularly is familiar with the talented Soulection producer Mr. Carmack. His unique production style is all over the place in the best way possible drawing from all spectrums of electronic sounds and beyond. Carmack releases tunes in a raw, and rare, fashion almost in a stream of conscious with informal titles that give a glimpse into his creativity and allow his fans to feel a unique connection to his musical personality.
At midnight a day ago, Carmack let loose a long-anticipated 17-track EP titled Drugs featuring many releases he had already shared on his SC stream, or during live sets, along with some brand new collaborations and remixes. Included in the project are far-out takes on hits like Future and Pharrell‘s “Move that Dope,” Major Lazer‘s “Aerosol Can” and Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan‘s “Get TF Out My Face” along with a stellar original collaboration with fellow up ‘n comer Jacuzzi. The Drugs EP highlights Carmack’s wonderfully strange quirks and makes for a high energy, often 808-backed, listen fitting for a dance part of any size. You can stream a few of our favorites above, but head over to his Bandcamp to stream the whole project and grab a copy at any price (including free) that you’d like.
Museum Motel (Kid Moxie & The Gaslamp Killer)
Greek-born LA-based singer Elena Charbila, who goes by the name of Kid Moxie, is coming out with a much anticipated album titled 1888. Collaborating with talented producers like Angelo Badalamenti and The Gaslamp Killer, Kid Moxie is set to take over the electronic pop genre with such diversity in her bag of tricks.
Here we have a track titled “Museum Motel”, which is one of the two collaborations The Gaslamp Killer has contributed in producing. The Los Angeles-based DJ has been a renowned producer for his unpredictable and wide range of electronic style. Providing a classical and epic approach to this song, the two musicians put together something so catchy and jaw-dropping that we just can’t get enough of. From the heavy dependence of strings, classical style drum beats and a variety of brass and woodwind instruments, the unique sound is something right off of a movie soundtrack, or something of that caliber. The riff from the flute almost resembles and reminds us of the infamous Kill Bill featured “The Lonely Shepherd”. Kid Moxie’s muffled and sustained vocals mix together perfectly with the track by giving it an ominous and mysterious feel. There is no doubt that although her vocals are not the highlights of this track, the minimalist approach of her supporting vocals totally elevate the desired effect of the distinctive sound of distinctive tune.
With that said, make sure to check out Kid Moxie and The Gaslamp Killer, and stay tuned for the upcoming 1888 album that’s coming out on 12/2. Trust me, you do not want to miss that!
Right Time (feat. Soraya)
This one will honestly have you melting away until you think you’re on a new planet. Beshken is one of the signature staples on the up-and-coming Next Wave collective and he’s making major waves with his ethereal production skills, as showcased here on “Right Time”. Enlisting the sultry vocals of Soraya, this one is sure to strike a chord in your heartstrings. If Ryan Hemsworth and Amy Winehouse had a child, it would be this song. Be on the look out for much more from this rising LA producer soon!
IDFWU (CRVFTSMEN REMIX)
It’s been a hot minute since we’ve posted anything remotely similar to this 808 trap, but this new joint by CRVFTSMEN was far too good to pass up. This Boston-based trio has been making some of the best hip-hop remixes out there for quite some time, however they flew onto everyone’s radar in a hurry with this new Big Sean cut. CRVFTSMEN make their TMN debut today with IDFWU, their latest and greatest remix that is just bursting at the seams with energy. It’s still widely debated in some circles how to properly dance to trap, but I can tell you certainly won’t care when this drops at a club as you hurdle your way to the dancefloor.
Guns For Hire (NGHTMRE Remix)
LA-based producer NGHTMRE just dropped this much anticipated remix of a Charlie Darker track titled “Guns For Hire”, and he’s definitely holding it down for all the club bangers and making a name for himself. Incorporating trap and dance into Charlie Darker’s electro-house goodness, NGHTMRE is definitely in his element. The buildup will leave you wanting more and more, and the epic drops will make you dance your pants off. It’s unique, catchy and the hard-hitting bass just seals the deal for everybody. Talk about a turn up jam!
Call me a psychic, but very soon you will probably hear this song at every club you go to. Needless to say, we would want to see more of this talented producer.
