[Electronic] Hermitude – The Buzz (feat. Mataya & Young Tapz)

The Buzz feat. Mataya & Young Tapz

Boundary-pushing Australian duo, Hermitude, are gearing up for the release of their highly anticipated album next month and, yesterday, dropped off the second single. “The Buzz” proves an explosive track including just about all the elements we’ve come to expect from Hermitude with its massive, yet intricately natural, feel. Building off of masterfully chopped vocals from soulful songstress Mataya and a brief line from emcee Young Tapz, the track absolutely goes off with a ground-shaking, synth-laden chorus. “The Buzz” serves as a friendly reminder of just how ahead of the curve Hermitude have been in shaping the future electronic scene. Hermitude’s Dark Night Sweet Light drops May 15th in Australia and New Zealand–you can pre-order and check dates for the accompanying tour here. In the meantime, kick off your weekend right with this tune above.

[Future] Tulpa – Deer Stared At Me (Clayjay Remix)

Tulpa - Deer Stared At Me (Clayjay Remix)
Deer Stared At Me (Clayjay Remix)

Don’t be fooled, this is not another mediocre future bass track that sounds like Tchami or Oliver Heldens. Clayjay, the 18-year-old from San Francisco, is cooking up something really special with his latest remix of Tulpa‘s “Deer Stared At Me”. Fusing future bass and trap elements, Clayjay manages to turn the amazing piano work from Tulpa into an epic tune. The minimalist approach and the bold synth melodies provide a total change-up from the beautiful keys, resembling the sound of Slow Magic. The more you listen to it, the more quickly you’ll fall in love with this track.

Clayjay possesses the new household sound. Make sure to check him out if you haven’t already, and grab a free download of this gem if you dig this. We’ll let his music do the talking.

[Multi-Genre] F.O.O.L – Knight EP


When F.O.O.L drops something, you listen. When it’s dropped on Monstercat, like his Knight EP, you should be even more eager to lend your ears to what the Swede created. His four tracks range in genres from electro, to dubstep, then he brings down the BPMs to the midtempo range to close things out.

F.O.O.L comes on strong with the explosive “Bounty Hunter” that straight shreds for an electro house track. Few tracks of this nature and quality have been released in a long, long time. Next, the title track brings the fire in a similar manner with a complex arrangement that keeps the energy at a high intensity. For the last half of the EP, F.O.O.L slows things down and shows off a different side of his creative abilities. “Fairytaler” is a dreamy dubstep tune and “Distorted Reality” is genre-defying song that is pretty vibey for a Euro bass track. If you would like to purchase the EP, you can do so on iTunes.

Animal Music – We Stay Vacant [TMN PREMIERE]

We Stay Vacant

As the world continues its decades-long infatuation with electronic dance music, fans are continually seeing it grow and evolve, bringing new ideas and unbridled creativity. Today’s a perfect example of that, as we bring you a look at London/Cambridge four-piece drum and bass outfit Animal Music.

Dropping today, “We stay Vacant” is a first glimpse at this group’s original work. With obvious influences of Netsky, Wilkinson, Chase & Status, and other notable drum and bass legends, Animal Music also sites songwriters like Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie, and Bon Iver as inspiration, as well.

“We Stay Vacant” showcases the combination of the two worlds, fusing the fast-paced world of booming basslines, energetic percussion, and supercharged melodies with articulate songwriting abilities. Lead singer Tom Sutcliffe provides vocals on the track, bringing a song with a true message. And, while dance tracks have boasted amazing vocals for years to come, Animal Music has woven it into every aspect of their art. Not only will you hear Sutcliffe on their tracks, but he’ll be bringing those vocals live to each and every live performance.

We’ve been forging our sound in the studio and playing shows endlessly for the last two years without putting anything out. It’s like we’ve stolen a plane and been flying on fumes. Now we need to fill the tank. Obviously it will be incredible to go and play the four corners of the planet, taking the music to everyone so they can see and hear it for themselves. – Pete Pocket

This is just a taste of what’s to come from this inventive act. Make sure to follow them on facebook to get updates on new music, tour info, and general shenanigans.

They’ve proven it in the past with such mesmerizing tunes as “Fantasy” and “Make You Feel” (along with a few others).

The pair continue to provide an auditory experience unlike any other, and we can’t wait to see what else the future holds for this dynamic duo.
