[Electronic] OIJ feat. Gia Koka – Back To The Start Remixes EP

After OIJ‘s release of his single “Back To The Start” with Gia Koka, he and his Epic Amsterdam team wanted to gather together some remixes. They did what they set out to do, commissioning three official remixes from Y.V.E. 48, Joshua J and Paul Hazendonk.

Y.V.E. 48 starts off the remix EP with a laid-back, future tinged flip whose cool vibes will bring a chill to your bones. Joshua J comes through next with his take on “Back To The Start” that shares a similar style to the previous remix, however Joshua takes future to heart and brings the genre out more vibrantly. Lastly, Paul Hazendonk switches everything up by bringing his deep, techy take on OIJ’s original. Enjoy all three today and let us know which take on “Back To The Start” was your favorite!

High Rule – Someone Else [TMN PREMIERE]

High Rule
Someone Else

It’s been over two years since we were first introduced to the quirky, alt-hip-hop duo High Rule. Often known for their tongue in cheek social commentary and unconventional beats, they’ve continued to pique our interest over the past two spins around the globe, with no signs of slowing down.

“Someone Else” is the first release since their debut EP dropped eight months back, and it’s a true embodiment of what people have come to know and love from this Chicago-based outfit. Complete with a casual flow, well-held notes during cascading background vocals, and pleasantly bizarre vocal-style synth hits, it’s a catchy ride throughout.

We caught ourselves singing along after only a few spins through and we fully expect you’ll do the same. After you belt out the lyrics, make sure to head over to Facebook and show these dudes some love.

[Event Review] Gabriel Garzón-Montano Delivers a Passionate San Francisco Debut

     …

Gabriel Garzón-Montano at The Rickshaw Stop

Saturday May 13, 2017

Following the release of his debut full-length album Jardín (see our review here) in January, it was only a matter of time before Gabriel Garzón-Montano shared his creation with fans in person. After kicking off his tour to start the month of May, Garzón-Montano introduced himself to San Francisco’s music scene at the Rickshaw Stop this past Saturday. The sold-out crowd enjoyed 75 minutes of passionate soul-baring as Gabriel gave the crowd his all. 

With the help of drummer David Frazier, Gabriel Garzón-Montano delivered an incredible musical experience in the intimate, hazy ambiance of the Rickshaw Stop. Highlights included GGM’s sensual crooning on “Six-Eight”, and the funky vibes of popular song “Crawl”. He relied heavily upon a participatory audience during the show, one that was very excited to engage in clapping, snapping, and singing along to Gabriel’s call-and-responses. Furthermore attendees were delightfully treated to a bilingual set. After interlacing a song or two in Spanish throughout his repertoire, Gabriel’s encore was nearly entirely in Spanish with the exception of first track “Bombo Fabrika”.

Garzón-Montano took us through a musical journey of his entire discography, and then some. With his masterfully-crafted music and soulful approach to showmanship, we continue to have high expectations for this artist in the future.

Future tour dates can be found here— don’t miss a chance to see Gabriel Garzón-Montano live! Continue reading

[Indie] VERO – Hello

VERO
Hello

Get your indie fix from a new act on the scene that goes by the name VERO. “Hello” is the Sweden trio’s debut single, out on their home country’s sector of Sony Music. There’s a reason a major label hopped on these cats and you’re about to find out why.

Although it’s labeled as pop on Soundcloud, “Hello” has a grungy, indie edge that can’t be refuted. It’s a cool little jam with psychedelic vibes that will get you all spaced out if you’re not too careful. Expect more from VERO who have a few more records ready for release, so those will be coming out this year. In the meantime, enjoy their introductory expression in “Hello.”
