Jungle (from the film Welcome To Yesterday)
Jamie N Commons + X Ambassadors
We love seeing a good collaboration over here at TMN. There’s something about bringing together two different styles, intertwining them into a culmination of powerful music. Today we have just that, in a supercharged premiere of Jamie N Commons and X Ambassadors new tune, “Jungle.” Releasing on KIDinaKORNER records, this electrifying tune can also be heard in the trailer for the upcoming motion picture Welcome to Yesterday.
This 90 second clip should provide ample reasons for you to get excited about this release, and the soundtrack that it’s appearing on. Delightfully screeching guitars pave way for visions of a dusty Louisiana bar, creating a super charged southern rock sound. Jamie N Common’s voice is as gritty and brawny as ever, exuding a brilliant, in-your-face attitude that simply can’t be avoided. Coupled with the flexing of X Ambassadors percussion ascendancy, we’re understandably licking our chops to hear more.
Take a brief moment to check out the trailer for this Michael Bay directed movie, and when you’re done, head over to iTunes and pick this track up.
A Color Map of the Sun Remixes
Derek Vincent Smith, aka Pretty Lights, has grown into quite an artist over the last few years. He now plays in huge venues at gigantic festivals with thousands upon thousands of people loving on his music.
So, when he returned back to his hometown of Denver, he decided to end his tour with something a little more intimate; he played for a sold out crowd at the cozy Ogden Theater. When PL released he was going to be playing there, the show sold out in mere minutes and for a very good reason, it is hard to see PL play in smaller venues these days. But what an amazing experience it was. Mikey Thunder opened for PL immediately engaging the crowd for a fun night ahead. PL brought his live band and serenaded the crowd for a few hours playing a lot of his new music off of his ‘A Color Map of the Sun’ while enticing our eardrums with some of his classics. The light show was also up to PL standards with colors and strobe lights dancing among the glowing faces of the enchanted audience. Colorado came out that night to show Smith just how much they support where he has come from and where he is going.
About a month ago Flume released his entire Deluxe Edition of his Debut album on Spotify. It features some of the best material to hit the blogosphere all year long, this remix being close to the top of the list. We all know the remix Flume did of Hermitude’s track “Hyper Paradise”, so it was only appropriate the favor was returned. To say the least, Hermitude lived up to the hype and pulled out all the stops for this massive remix. “Holdin On” was already about as funky as one tune can get, but the vocal edits and tweaks that Hermitude throws down in this mix is nothing short of amazing. Cheers.

All The Days (Follow Me Remix)
NYC duo and TMN favorite, Follow Me, are back yet again with a remix that effortlessly demonstrates that their seductive and nostalgic house sound transcends all preconceived boundaries. Straying from their R&B roots, just days ago, Follow Me released their latest remix of indie pop group HAERTS‘ break out single of 2013, “All The Days”.
Follow Me expertly support the vocals of Nini Fabi with a foundation of crisp percussion, washed out synths and tropical pads. Follow Me’s remix masterfully pays homage to the beauty of Fabi’s vocals while still giving the entire production a danceable and energetic feel. As usual, Joe and Anthony are giving this gem out for free so make sure to stream and download your copy below. Enjoy.
It’s the holiday season, which usually means we’re melting our credit cards from overuse and finding nothing but fuzz in our emptied pockets. Buying for everyone on your list can definitely get exhausting, so why not take some time to yourself before/during or after braving the world of mass consumerism. You won’t need your wallet and you won’t have a million people in your bubble. Sounds like total bliss…doesn’t it? We think so. So….go ahead, hit play. We’ll take the “showering with gifts” from here..

‘Tis definitely the season for musical gifts. To most people’s surprise, Cleveland native Kid Cudi is back with a brand new track for our listening pleasure. As always, Cudi is not afraid of experimenting with his sound. He keeps the mood dark but interesting with a genre-crossing sound and melancholy vibe. Mixing together a blend of singing and rapping over trippy, atmospheric production, this track is reminiscent of his Man on the Moon flow. This is the first track off his upcoming EP, Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon, however no release date is confirmed yet. In the meantime, sit back and enjoy a journey through the otherworldly sound of the rager.
