TV On Mars
Shapes (Ellie Goulding // Ekali)
I, personally, am not one to write about mash-ups and haven’t heard too many good ones worth my time. So, the fact that i’m going against my own word says something about this tune in particular from the mysterious TV On Mars. With only a handful of followers and a few remixes on his page, one can see that his elusiveness translates in his work. Earlier last night I stumbled upon this refreshing mash-up of Ekali’s, “Unfaith” and Ellie Goulding’s cover of Alt-J’s, “Tessellate”. The combination of both Ellie’s sensational voice and Ekali’s flawlessly produced, “Unfaith”, TV On Mars captured the beauty of both tracks and created something smooth, SAXual, and truly divine. So kick off your Friday with some majestic melodies and float with these soothing sound waves for the rest of the day. If you party too hard this weekend, you might want to pick up a free download so you can remedy that hangover come Sunday.
If there was ever a time where it would be nice to be asked to prom, it would be today because our new TMN favorite, PROM, just flipped our switch to ON with their latest release. After falling in love with their debut track, “Flickers”. one can say that we jumped on the PROM bandwagon faster than the time it takes to let our false eyelashes set in place. “Switch On” enchants us with Gabe and Ella’s synchronized harmonies, reverberated synths, and dream-like elements that shoot you straight to the moon and back. These two possess something truly special and captivating; sometimes all we need is a little refreshing break from mainstream to dive deep the artists that give us a reason to be excited for the future of music. PROM is definitely a band we can stand by from here on out and we look forward to hearing what Gabe and Ella have up their sleeves in the near future…maybe a new EP out next week? We think yes. Pre-order yours today.
Team (Autograf Remix)
The last time we heard a good remix of Lorde’s, “Team”, was when Flume unleashed his absurdly addictive rendition that sent surging waves across nearly every festival around the globe. Now that much time has passed since that legendary track permeated the saturated bubble in dance music, we decided to share with you a lovely new Future Tropical remix from our guys over at Autograf. After preparing our Pina Coladas (to set the mood, of course), we pressed play on this magical number and were introduced to a much softer, more mellow side of Autograf that has every muscle in our body limp as a noodle. Smoldering in wavey synths, echoing melodies, and spicey drum patters, Autograf took this Lorde anthem and loosened things up to a much smoother level. We’re convinced this one has the ability to send us straight into a comatose in paradise, so prepare to escape the day away thanks to Autograf.

Wow. Well, this is where we would usually open up with some witty sentence to make everyone giggle, but we’re afraid that there aren’t too many words left in us that can describe this majestic wonder from New York’s, Tei Shi. The dreamy, seductive siren just unleashed a chilling new original, “Bassically”, and we can’t seem to escape her elusive voice that echoes inside our minds. “Bassically” is filled with synth-heavy melodies, reverberated elements that linger in the background and blend together with accompanying notes, and a haunting vocal from Tei Shi that teases your every sense. If you’re just now settling in for the night, then you came at the right time because this song will undeniably leave you begging for more.

Bigger Than Prince (Coyu Remix)
Slinger has been an artist with whom we’ve come to fall for over the last year through a select batch of excellent disco tinged house remixes, but today he’s back with a debut original single. “How Does It Feel” is a deep-disco dance piece encasing a synth-pop groover at its heart. The tune plays as slick as something out of Todd Terje or even Lindstrøm’s catalogs with even a touch of the same futuristic sensibility that made Grum’s 2011 album Heartbeats just so… cool. If this level of craftsmanship is what we can expect from Slinger’s individual output, we’re all hands on deck. Stream “How Does It feel” above and cap your work or school day with something sexy and dance inducing.
