[Seductive] Blooms – Lust

Lust

Lost in lust…more that I’m lost in the beauty of this song.
London artist Blooms has released the third song off her upcoming EP. The song, ‘Lust’, is exactly about that and nothing more. Blooms seductive and rich voice invites listeners to feel the same lust she is feeling for that certain someone. We have all felt that way before, seen someone whose face we can’t seem to forget, whose body we secretly pine for, whose smile makes us weak in the knees. But it is Blooms sultry voice that brings this feeling to the surface and into the light of the everyday.

[Chill/Electronic] M83 – Wait (Kygo Remix)

Wait (Kygo Remix)

Things have continued to heat up for Norwegian electronic producer Kygo, which is a name most TMN readers should be aware of at this point. After his remix of Syn Cole’s “Miami 82″, a tune we featured about a month back, captured the eyes of music critics far and wide, the big wigs at Avicii’s Le7els imprint quickly snapped up the tune for a proper release. The move rather quickly elevated Kygo out of the blogosphere and into mainstream consciousness, while landing him a coveted spot on Diplo’s ‘Diplo & Friends’ radio show last week. But that’s enough yammering for now, and let’s get to his latest tune;  a remix of M83′s ethereal pop track “Wait”. Kygo slows up his cadence a bit more than usual to stay in line with M83′s vision, rather opting for a long burning ride while fusing his indistinguishable synth kit onto the entire movement. Quite honestly the remix feels as if it could have been an alternate recording of the original, and we hope that comes across as a huge compliment, seeing as M83′s Anthony Gonzalez has been spending much of his time lately being commissioned by some of the world’s best musicians to score entire films. As Kygo has just eclipsed 200,000 fans on Facebook, this one is being given away for free on his Facebook page as a thank you, and he had this to say about it: “Here’s the first out of two free remixes to thank you all for the amazing support so far and that you’ve helped me break 200k likes on Facebook! Hope you guys like it”. Yes, we like it very much.

ANiMAL – MUSIC – Monsters [TMN PREMIERE]

Monsters

You can’t judge a book by its cover, and you can’t judge a track by its title. While the title for this seemingly dark drum and bass tune would lead you towards a macabre, ominous soundscape, you’d be wrong in that assumption. You’ve come looking for monsters and you’ll leave wanting to overcome them.

What exactly does that mean, you ask? Press play and expect only positive, uplifting vibes from this melodic track. Drawing on comparisons of Rudimental, these vibes carry effortlessly over the liquid style, rolling bassline and rapid snare work.

We have London based electronic four piece ANiMAL – MUSIC to thank for this regenerative tune, which is out today via your favorite music blog. “Monsters” features vocals from the group’s member Tom and carries a message that will leave you nodding and saying, “hell yeah.” Couple it with some soaring synths and light piano keys, and we can’t help but find ourselves tapping our feet and sporting a big, toothy grin.

[TMN EXCLUSIVE] Daft Punk + Martin Garrix – Unreleased Track

Martin Garrix and Daft Punk
Unreleased Track

Holy shit, ninjas! We were able to get our hands on a sneak preview of a blockbuster collaboration between Martin Garrix and Daft Punk. The word on the street is, you’ll be able to catch this song at Coachella, which has huge ties to Daft Punk. Maybe we’ll see those famous helmets come up on stage with Martin for this monster of a track. Who knows?

All we can say is, this track is a dance floor slaying beast. The bassline is huge, which will provide ample material for all of the dancing festival folks. While the melody is truly spectacular, the drop is what really sold us on this tune. We’re not quite sure what the release date is, but we can guarantee that it will be one of the most remixed songs for the following months.

What are you waiting for? Press play and get ready to hear the anthem for 2014.

UPDATE: If you haven’t already figured this out yet, this was obviously an April Fool’s Day prank. Neither Martin Garrix nor Daft Punk had anything to do with this song. However, we’d like to offer up a sincere thank you to Jontron for helping us pull together a convincing troll. :)

Most things in our lives don’t just happen if we all sit around and wait for them. Sometimes, we’ve got to get up off our asses and give it all we got. Sure the grind is exhausting, but if you really want something, the only way you’re gonna get it is to go out and get it. Unless all you want is a simple playlist for your listening enjoyment that is. In that case, don’t you dare lift a finger. Well, lift one finger….but only to press play.

[Amazing] Asgeir – Dreaming

Dreaming

Growing up in the late 80′s and 90′s, I always wondered what it would be like to ride Falcor from the Never Ending Story. Something about riding a half dragon, half dog, way up above the rest of the world was a fantasy I often indulged in. Thanks to Asgier, I now fully know what that seemingly impossible feat would feel like.

All kidding aside, there’s something in the water up in Iceland. They have such a knack for blending gorgeous vocal tones with impeccable harmonies and meticulous piano work. Staying in the same vein as one of our long-time favorites, Sigur Ros, Asgier has created a booming, cinematic song that’s worthy of any classic epic tale. If they make a movie about the Iliad, this song should be in the soundtrack.

This one is extremely easy to wander off to, so we suggest a solid pair of headphones and a good cocktail to accompany it.

[New Motown] Temptations – Cloud Nine (FKJ Remix)

Cloud Nine (FKJ Remix)

It takes a lot for me not to scoff at an attempt to remix one of the greats from the Motown era. I grew up on the Temptations, the Four Tops, Gladys Knight and the Pips, etc. My mom played it endlessly, giving me an early appreciation of soul music.

With that being said, I have to offer a tip of the cap to French producer French Kiwi Juice for dialing up this new-school take on a legendary tune. The soulful vibe is very much so alive and well, freshened up with some sexy sampling and a groovy beat. It maintains everything that was great about the original, while coupling in some 2014 flavor.

As an added bonus, my mom even gave a nod of approval. Nice work, FKJ.
