Hey QT (Blackbird Blackbird Remix)

Blackbird Blackbird has got to be one of most unpredictable producers in the game. Coming out with a remix of this quirky tune titled “Hey QT”, the SF-based musician once again surprises us with his unbelievable talent. The tune is brushed up with a soft trap beat, and the catchy melody is sampled throughout the track for the buildup and the drop. He definitely made this track his own with these complex maneuvers, and we can definitely see this being played in his upcoming shows. Big ups to Blackbird Blackbird and all that he offers to the industry!

Street Sweeper

The multi-talented musician Christian Berishaj a.k.a JMSN has the voice of an angel. Here we have a track titled “Sweet Sweeper”, where he gives us a sneak peek of his upcoming self-titled album.

Talk about a butter-smooth voice; it’s one of those tunes you can listen to all day and not get tired of. The feels are so strong with this one.

So do yourself a favor, put this record on and we’ll cry our eyes out together. Also, brace yourself because JMSN album is coming out 12/9. It’s one of those albums you do not want to miss out on.

[D&B/House] Kove – “Murmurations” EP

MurmTMN

Out now via Chase & Status’ MTA Records is Kove’s new EP, “Murmurations.” This producer is an outstanding example of how far versatility can project their sound to a wider fan base – having only signed to the label a year or so ago, Kove now plays all over the world and has just been asked to join Netsky on his forthcoming US tour.

UK-based, Kove had his first release on Program – the sub label of Andy C’s drum and bass platform Ram Records. Now, he works in both house and drum and bass, ensuring that he satisfies the hoards of dance floor lovers that eagerly follow his progress. “Murmurations” follows on from last year’s “Measures” EP that was also split half and half with each genre.

House tracks here are “VCO” and “Drop” – the former being a garage-inspired cut with plenty of chopped vocals for texture and “Drop” adding on a touch of big room into this atmospheric jam. The drum and bass is of a typically high standard – he collaborated with promising talent Dimension for the vibrant “Feel Love Again” and the spaced-out, trippy “Still High” is an exquisite track.

Kove continues his rise to the top in spectacular style with this release – you can pick up “Murmurations” here.

Money Time feat. Antony & Cleopatra (Option4 Remix)

It’s always such a thrill for us at TMN when an artist we’ve been following from the ground up starts receiving the critical support for which we believe was due from the beginning. After an impressive 2013 and start to 2014, which included founding the digital Night Supply imprint, singles on the hallowed Nurvous Records, and absurdly viral remixes for Great Good Fine OK and Elizabeth Rose; Denver’s option4 makes a soulfully jacking debut on one of the biggest electronic tastemaking labels in existence, Fool’s Gold, by re-visioning Sammy Bananas’ “Money Time”. As with much of his back catalog, option4 paints a vibrant, deep and jacking U.K. house shine onto Bananas’ original; resulting in a tune armed with more than enough dark funky lacquer to incite a dancefloor storm. This one’s coming out as part of Sammy Bananas’ Money Time EP package, which dropped today through iTunes. Snag a copy here, and since you’ve made it this far, get your boogie onto option4′s remix above.

Stuart Software, Gibson & Glover Feat.Rob James
Keep On (SectionZ Fresh Friday) [Free Download]

As our Tuesday afternoon lingers on, some  of Ninjas are still left with visions of dancefloors teeming with beautiful, sweaty masses and basically blowing the steam off from last weekend. And what better way to kick that feeling into gear than with a little bit of quality, club-driven deep-house. “Keep On” from budding dance producers Stuart Software and Gibson & Glover popped up on our Soundcloud feed this morning via a well timed repost, albeit about a week after this one’s official release, but the moment we ran through it once; we knew it was a perfect cut for a blustery Tuesday. Vocalist Rob James lends a gorgeous helping of reverberations to this one while the prosperous pairing of Software and Gibson & Glover paint a chunky, U.K. club, deep groove onto the movement; producing a track we’ll be soundtracking our pre-games to this coming weekend. Not much information is available thus far on all three artists, but you can snag the track here on Bandcamp as a “name your price” download. Kick your afternoon into gear and let this one ride through your favorite and loudest listening medium.

Beyoncé – Party (Birthday Boy Version) [TMN PREMIERE]

Party (Birthday Boy Version)

They say it’s not a “Party” until the Birthday Boy walks in–or at least we think they do. If it’s not a saying yet, then it definitely will be after you feast your ears upon this enticing remix of Beyoncé‘s festive classic from the savvy Canadian up-and-comer. With his flair for crafting bouncy rhythms and infectious melodies that drill themselves into your brain, Birthday Boy turns the funk up to new levels that immediately force your toes to begin tapping uncontrollably. It’s the type of fun, upbeat song that makes you wish you could repeat summer all over again, and though it may be sacrilegious of us to say, we think we prefer this birthday party even more than the original.

[TMN Resident Artist for October] I Am Hardwell is coming to the States

Hardwell

A new season is upon us, beautiful fall. The air is crisper, the sun sets a little earlier and rises a little later, and the leaves on the trees change from their lush green to the colors of pure fire and flames. And with the changing of the seasons comes the changing of resident artists here at TMN.

Let me tell about our new resident, a little about where he came from and how he changed from establishing himself as a DJ at the tender age of fourteen to creating a musical empire where he reigns as one of the most well known international DJs of his time, currently ranked #1 in the world by DJ Mag. Just as seasons change, our resident artist Hardwell has continued to grow and expand his musical repertoire showing every year why he is one of the best when it comes to music.

Over the years, Hardwell has taken his love of music and captivated audiences around the world. At just twenty-five years young, Hardwell is the label boss of Revealed Recordings and has landed 6 consecutive #1’s on Beatport. Like his great mentor Tiësto, Hardwell proudly hails from Breda, a city tucked deep within the Netherlands and it is here where he first discovered his love of music.

Today, Hardwell continues to bring his impressive sound anywhere and everywhere he can in the world, with the final stop of his I Am Hardwell tour being here in the U.S. and Canada. Back in 2013, Hardwell launched his most ambitious project to date when he unveiled his I Am Hardwell World Tour concept at a completely sold-out Heineken Music Hall. A spectacle of unprecedented musical vision and production detail, the entire show was broadcast live to hundreds of thousands of fans around the world. After the successful kick off of his I Am Hardwell World Tour in Amsterdam last April, Hardwell has sold-out shows in 19 countries around the world including shows in Singapore, Guatemala, Istanbul, Tel Aviv, Bangalore, Mumbai, Lisbon and London, and is now poised to take over North America.

Are you ready for the seasons to change? Maybe not, but I can guarantee you are ready for the I Am Hardwell tour to come State side. This is going to be a tour you won’t want to miss because Hardwell is going to bring everything and more to each and every show. He is Hardwell and we are beyond honored to have him as our resident artist for October.
