We know we don’t typically do premieres at 9AM on a Sunday morning, but this glowing beaut from dream folk outfit Still Parade was just too fitting to pass up.
If we can speculate, we will safely assume that most of you had a great night out on the town last night. With that being said, you’re going to need some cooling, calming, and peaceful tunes to slowly come out of your self-induced coma. On the other hand, you could have called it an early night, looking forward to getting some stuff done around the house today. Either way, “Hunter” is the perfect start to the last day of your weekend.
Released today as a stand alone free download, this tune is a gift to everyone that has supported them over the past year or so. Take it as an early holiday gift, and what a gift it is. In true Still Parade fashion, we once again have found ourselves slowly drifting into a state of sheer, unadulterated bliss, to the tune of airy synths, rhythmic percussion and Niklas’ stunning vocals.
As with most of their releases, we fully expect “Hunter” to follow suit, garnering hundreds of thousands of plays and the unwavering adoration of the blogoshpere. And, we’re once again thrilled to be kicking things off.
Killing Time (feat. Isabel Higuero)
Drum and Bass is the perfect genre for just about any activity. The intensity of the percussion is a perfect match for a grueling workout or getting amped up for a night out on the town. The melodic intricacies often found in liquid DnB make an ideal match for cranking out some work, or taking a moment to step back and think. In a set or playlist, it seamlessly blends from track to track, creating an energetic feed that’s rivaled by none.
Following up on the deservedly adored “Boundaries,” DJ/Producer Lewis Munns, aka Droptek, has checked off all of those aforementioned boxes with this lovely, rolling DnB tune. “Killing Time” boasts an incredible mix of classic piano work and synths which work perfectly with the expertly crafted drum pad arrangement. It’s highlighted even further by the addition of vocalist Isabel Higuero, who brings the perfect set of lyrics for this radiant tune.
Whether you’re a seasoned DnB vet, or you’re just getting your feet wet in this incredible genre, “Killing Time” offers the perfect blend of what makes this style of dance music so wonderful. Press play and get ready to drift away.

Rather Be (DJ Mustard Remix)
A few days overdue, but this remix is too epic for it to not get some TMN light shed on it. Many of you are already very familiar with the name DJ Mustard, or at least with the popular phrase “Mustard on the beat, hoe.” Starting to ring a bell? If you still aren’t sure who he is, we can assure you that at least 70% of the hip hop songs you hear on the radio are produced by this guy.
Considering that Mustard is notorious for his hip hop production and his signature four note melodies, it may come to many as a major surprise that he is releasing a remix. Not only that, but this remix touches the future area of EDM with a bit of trap mixed in. Let us just tell you that our jaws dropped after first listen.
DJ Mustard’s remix of Clean Bandit’s “Rather Be” is as sexy as it is badass. First deceiving listeners with the exact same opening as the original, he throws in a subtle difference via a catchy beat cued by his all too familiar catch phrase. This then opens up to a futuristic breakdown constructed by some incredible EQing and mixing followed by pure bass and melody. Only expect the unexpected with this one.
I don’t know about you ninjas, but my tummy is still full of tofurkey, mashed potatoes, and way too much regret after yesterdays Thanksgiving feast. Now that i’ve overcome the obstacles of literally moving my body, I can finally unleash this weeks FPP. So load up those plates with leftovers, press play, and get ready for one helluva weekend.
As always, #DANCEIRRESPONSIBLY.
Until next week, ninjas.

Ghetto Superstar (Goshfather & Jinco X Sasha Grey Remix)
It is the season of giving and being thankful, so Franck Ocean wanted to give a little treat for anxious fans in the form of a new track via his Tumblr page. “Memrise” is a brief, somber listen from the young star. After the success of channel ORANGE, Ocean has been pretty much MIA from the music scene. Either he has been in the studio cooking up another record or just enjoying the success of his debut, most likely the former. Regardless of speculations, today is the first listen of what Ocean has been working on and the new direction he is going with his sound.
The two-minute track starts off hazy with a knocking-beat followed by some keys and altered vocals. The singer/songwriter croons about a past love and the memories of their connection. The track comes across as more of an intro or snippet than anything full length. No news on when we are to expect some new music from the hit-maker, but we’ll take this one for now. Hit the jump to read the lyrics, which he posted along with the audio. Continue reading
It’s always a pleasant surprise when two artists join forces to create a track and, even more so, when those are artists have vastly different musical styles. That is why we are super stoked to see the names LooKas and SMLE on the same record.
If you are familiar with either of the artists, then you know that LooKas always brings the bass while SMLE have proved themselves as masters of future and funk. The blend of festival trap and futuristic funk on “6 A.M.” makes for the perfect balance of party and chill. The track shifts from soft and innocent to hard and intense while an evolving tempo, thus keeping listeners on their toes at all times.
Any Other Way (Broke For Free Remix)
Hopefully You should be familiar by now with Oakland based Broke For Free. We’ve featured a handful of his gems here such as “Summer Spliffs“, “The Gold Lining“, “Tropicks“, and “Juparo“. All featuring different styles of production while still delivering a satisfying and uplifting experience.
His newest piece of work is this soulful remix of William Bell‘s classic “Any Other Day”, and he nails it on all levels. While staying true to the original production but sprinkling flawless piano melodies throughout, and adding some very sexy saxophone. Best of all this remix if FREE, so just click the “Buy” button below and enjoy this gem over the holiday weekend. Cheers.
