Pastures (Prod. Smoko Ono)

You know that saying about putting someone out to pasture when it’s time for them to go down easy? Well, Jarred A.G. isn’t about to retire anytime soon, but he is looking to force his competition to hang their hats up. The Windy City spitter brings us yet another heater today, this time ripping apart a dope instrumental courtesy of frequent running mate, Smoko Ono. “Pastures” is the first single from Jarred’s upcoming project, Canvas, which is set to drop early next year.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #61

chill dojo

It hasn’t been a while since we last wrote about Koan Sound and Asa, but they are at it again, this time calling in fellow Inspected label-mates Culprate and Reso for some extra collaboration on our favourite tune of the week.  ‘Cascade’ is the result of two days of solid studio time, all to raise money for Movember and men’s health. But it’s a feel-good track for many more reasons than that, because this downtempo delight is layered with articulate drums, gorgeous piano melodies and a dreamy atmosphere that carries you away. This week we were also treated to some new Flume, which is always a catalyst for the blogosphere to make plenty of noise. Again the Australian artist proves he can do no wrong, delivering a chilled symphonic masterpiece featuring the stunning vocals of Isabella Manfredi.  Another voice of serenity we can’t get enough of is Foxes, which makes us extremely pleased with the choice for DJ AA’s latest bootleg. Blending the beautiful songstress together with the sweet beats of Stwo is a combination that makes for some truly blissful listening, and you’ll wish it could go on forever. Luckily we have a tasty serving of French House to follow up with thanks to the ever smooth stylings of Kartell, who crafts the perfect dancey groove to accompany the soulful flavour of this Dave Hollister classic. Swedish duo Oliver Nelson and Tobtok were also hitting all the right notes this week, their nu-disco version of the popular Naughty Boy chart-topper proving to be the fresh edit we all needed to hear. It’s always a point of contention to say that a particular remix is better than the original track, but all we’ll say is that this one is basicially impossible to hate. While we’re talking new directions, German team Gamper & Dadoni have put their unique spin on another anthem, this time giving ‘Coming Home’ a refresh away from the generic festival remixes,  opting for a more laid-back vibe that is well-suited for the vocals of Skylar Grey. And just when you thought you couldn’t be more pleasantly surprised, in comes that sax solo to steal the show. Bravo gentlemen.

This edition is stacked with great listening, and lots of free downloads too. Peace out.

[Video] SPIRIT ANIMAL – Radio Brain

Radio Brain

After you slowly climb out of bed, throw away the remnants from last night’s festivities and piece together your life, know that we have you covered. Screw Red Bull. We have a tasty serving of gold old fashioned Rock and Roll to wake you up.

Yet again we find ourselves writing about another Brooklyn band. This isn’t on purpose, we swear. It just so happens that Brooklyn is churning out tons of solid tunes, and SPIRIT ANIMAL is the latest in our findings. The Big Apple based quartet has more than just a solid beard to offer up. While that is an impressive feat of manliness that even Ron Swanson would give an approving nod to, these cats also have a electrifying sound that could get anyone up on their feet.

Today we’re proud to bring you their video for “Radio Brain,” which serves up monstrously crunchy guitar riffs, a frenetic vocal range and of course, a bad ass video. As depicted below, we see the band panicking as they search high and low for “Radio Brain” on Spotify, to no avail. Take a look for yourself!

Izzy Bizu – White Tiger (Star Slinger Remix)

Izzy Bizu
White Tiger (Star Slinger Remix)

Thank God it’s Friday, but, for many of us, a full day of work or school remains before reaching the glorious weekend. Luckily,  Star Slinger is here to save our morning, day and night with a funky, soulful remix of Izzy Bizu‘s “White Tiger.” In typical fashion, the UK producer lets things build before slicing and dicing the vocals over his unique brand of manic percussion. The end result proves both relaxed and danceable. I found myself jamming out to this in bed this morning, but it just as easily could be a great track to fuel your Friday night shenanigans. Peep above and head to Star Slingers FB page for a free download.

Q & A with Pigeon + Two Moon Love Premiere [TMN EXCLUSIVE]

8
PIGEON (official)
Two Moon Love

The internet is a funny thing. No, I’m not talking about anything in your search history (you should probably clear it though), I’m talking about the connectivity of the world in the snap of a finger. Just yesterday we started speaking to Brisbane based five piece Pigeon on twitter, and today we’re bringing you a premiere of their newest track, “Two Moon Love.”

With admittedly not knowing much about this group, we wanted to ask a few questions in hopes to get to know them a little bit better. Check out what Chris Paget (Bass & Synths) had to say about the name Pigeon, the Brisbane music scene and plans to head up to the States for a proper tour.

TMN: Hey guys, thanks for taking some time to answer a few questions for us. Let’s start from the beginning. How did you guys all meet and decide to create Pigeon?

P: Thanks for your time! Well… more or less we all met in high school or uni. Pigeon is made up of five lads and we had all played together in various musical projects before forming Pigeon but nothing too serious. None of us had ever played around with dance / electronic music so there was an excitement to give it a go and try something new. It was early 2011 when the five of us came together in the studio and Pigeon was created. The intent was to form a electronic / dance band that had a killer and energetic live show.

TMN: We have to ask, how did you land on that name?

P: The old name question… every time I get asked this I wish I had a more exciting answer. Pigeon was just a word that we all agreed on that looked and sounded cool. We tried to find a simple word that has a blank canvas and hasn’t been used before… this can be quite a mission! We still have a little while to go before we take priority over our flying grey friends on a google search.

TMN: You guys have a really infectious electro pop sound, fusing indie dance with some more mainstream EDM styles. Talk to us about what goes into your production.

P: Cheers. A lot of work goes into the production element of the band. We work out of a studio in Brisbane and this is where most of our time is spent. The standard writing process is someone will come in with an idea and we pass it around to each other to add to / make changes. More often than not we will complete a song before we have ever played it live.
