The city of brotherly love is showing a sweet, winter embrace with this latest tune from it’s resident future-bass producer Louis Futon, and we couldn’t be happier about it.

Crafting something that’s truly otherworldly, this up-and-coming blogosphere favorite just gave us a taste of the final single off his EP. “DRNUK” has the world spinning after one listen, providing music nerds across the globe for the perfect reason to lie on the floor, throw on some quality headphones, and get completely lost.

Comprised of cinematic synths, hissing atmospheric elements, and some sweet, smooth rolling bass, this tune will soon become one of your new favorite future pieces.

On an unrelated note, this will most definitely make for a solid addition to your “bedroom playslist.” Don’t scoff, fellas. You know you have one.

[Trap] Slander – Vangaurd


The calendar may say December at the top, but Slander feels like we’re right in the middle of festival season. Following up on a long string of remixes, as well as their debut original “Ascension,” these two Angelinos are back with a brand-spanking-new original titled “Vanguard”.

Taking a break from their residency at Sin City’s XS Nightclub, these two bass-heavy producers have laid down a monster tune, complete with lazery synths, rolling hi hats, and, of course, plenty of bass. Aside from the raw energy of the tune, the thing that caught our ear the most was actually the small percussion section that leads into the drop. The addition of real drum work was a pleasant change of pace from what we’re used to hearing out here in the blogosphere.

Whether you’re counting down the days till your first festival of 2015, or you’re just down to get a little rowdy tonight, throw this bad boy on. It surely won’t disappoint.

[Electronica] Tegan and Sara – So Jealous (Royal Refix)

So Jealous (Royal Refix)

Who doesn’t love a Tegan and Sara remix? D.C. producer Royal just released an official rework of “So Jealous”, and it surely hits the spot. Stripping the original tune to bare bone, the producer incorporates a bold synth line, a trap beat and a drop so epic it’s comparable to artists like Slow Magic. The vocals from the original track fits perfectly with the loud and outstanding character the remix brings out. With an everchanging sound, we’re sure this might not define Royal’s caliber, but it sure raises the standard in this subgenre of electronic music.

We are excited to see what else the talented musician has to offer. He’s going to be one of the most exciting acts to watch in 2015, so stay tuned!

[Bass] Alesso – Heroes ft. Tove Lo (Salvatore Ganacci Remix)

Heroes feat. Tove Lo (Salvatore Ganacci Remix)[Out Nov 24 on Def Jam]

Out now the legendary Def Jam imprint is the remix of the debut single on the label from rising dance star Alesso. “Heroes” has been garnering some serious air time and gets the remix treatment from
Swedish producer Salvatore Gannacci, amongst a couple of others. His remix opens up proceedings with some low-slung dubbed out reggae vibes which enhance the vocals of singer Tove Lo and bring down the tempo to an easy swing.

Creating some tension, that gradually builds before the vocal crescendo and drop combine, switching the feel of the track completely. Big gassy kicks and riffs work inside scatty percussion, making Ganacci’s remix something of a banger. Seek out a copy of the remix on Monday when it lands.

2014 marks ten years in the game for Viper Recordings, the popular UK drum and bass label ran by producer and DJ Futurebound. The past decade has seen the platform gain considerable success, signing some of the scene’s most impressive artists and releasing a string of classic tunes that will be played for well over the next ten years. The label is choosing to celebrate their birthday by putting out a brand new compilation, “Decade Of Viper”, filled with both exclusive tracks and a set of classic Viper tunes that have been doing the rounds at D&B nights since they were first unleashed.

The array of artists that feature on this LP is quite astonishing – from Sigma to Delta Heavy, The Prototypes to Koven. Previously unheard music takes the form (amongst many others) of Tali “Forces”(Trei Remix), Smooth & Futurebound “Savoy Affair” and Cyantific “Bring You Love.” There are twenty Viper favourites on this album, ranging from DC Breaks “Halo”, Smooth “Virgo Cluster”, The
Prototypes “Pale Blue Dot” and Seven Lions “Below Us” ft. Shaz Sparks.

It’s certainly been an impressive decade for the Viper family, and we’re looking forward to the next one. The “Decade Of Viper” LP is out now, and you can purchase a copy here.

Get To Know: Inpetto [TMN Exclusive Interview]


German production and DJ duo Inpetto have just released a sublime single on Dirty Soul, an imprint of renowned dance label Be Yourself Music. Titled “Never Too Late” and featuring vocalist Bryan Finlay, it allows the pair to show of their musicality and attention to detail in impressive style. We caught up with Inpetto to hear a little more about their take on deep house.

When did you first both sit down and make music together, and has it always been a part of your family?

Funnily no other (known) family member besides us has a musical background. It was around 1995 when we discovered our interest in making music and spent more and more of our money and time on it. We then did a couple of our own tracks that we sent out to some music labels. Finally in 1999,our first track was released – this was the start of our musical career.

What pulled you in about the Jerk & Bastard remix?

We love that remix, because it is a complete rework of our track just using the sax and the vocals combined with amazing sounds and driving beats. You have to love the kind of remixes where the remixer made a complete new track by using only the main part like the vocal or main melody of the original – like we always do.

When DJing at your live shows do you both take on separate roles, how does it work?

Well, because we are two people, the situation comes where you have different opinions. Someone has to have the last word on decisions, which is the older one. But that doesn’t happen very often!

Outside of electronic music, what do you find yourselves listening to and do you think this is apparent in your productions?

Actually we find ourselves listening to any genre, but not every genre is an inspiration for our tracks. We are big fans of alternative/indie rock like Daughter, Josè Gonzalez or London Grammar, which might play a role in how we use melodies in our tracks.

What do you have planned for the New Year, maybe an EP or even an album?

We have a couple of new, maybe surprising tracks signed in the first part of 2015. Stay tuned, but theres no album planned yet…
