Having dropped (excuse the pun), his new EP last week on MTA Records, Kove has once again made sure he is firmly on the dance music radar. Entitled “Murmurations”, there are plenty of inclinations that he is one of those artists who will continue to deliver the goods as his profile rises. One of the fiercest offerings on the four track collection is “Drop”, a little ode to the on trend big room sound.
To run alongside this track, we are pleased to unveil the wicked official graphics video that goes with the tune. Check it out – remember you can purchase “Murmurations” here.
You Make Me Wanna (KRNE Remix) [Free Download]
Holy hell do we want to do some things and some stuff after hearing the latest from Oakland native, KRNE. The Future Bass aficionado has continued to surpass his own limits with each and every release. Today is no different because KRNE just released some serious heat with his remix of Usher’s, “You Make Me Wanna”. Permeating us with massive synth breakdowns, delicate harps, and a whole lot of 808 madness, KRNE gives us those futuristic feels in this throwback sensation and teases us with the music of tomorrow. We honestly don’t think we will be able to escape the repeat button with this one, so grab your free download and dive into some silky vibes for the remainder of the week. Just make sure to lock your bedroom doors tonight and make your special someone beg for more.
Fall is here. Time to snuggle up, cuddle up, nuzzle up, bundle up. Whatever it is that suits your fancy. Just don’t forget to bring the Indie Dojo all up in those warm covers with you. We really like to cuddle to the sweet sounds of indie too.
The Night VI
Drops (Naked Noise Live Rework)
Talented house/bass producers Journeyman return to consciousness today, armed with their new single. Released through the ever-popular Anjunadeep, “Crash Reel” follows on from their successful ‘Spend It All’ EP, which was their debut offering on the label.
This single is a gloriously bassy exploration of deep house, keeping it a fully melodic experience. Soulful vocals make an enticing hook here, whilst a toe-tapping rhythmical progression keeps the tune flowing. This is luscious, grooving dance music at its best – bringing plenty of soul into the mix. Journeyman are still relative newcomers on the scene, but with such a classic sound, there is no doubt that they will remain firmly on the radar.
You can purchase “Crash Reel” here.
Actors (Dinnerdate Remix)
There are some music lovers out there who just melt when it comes to slow, dreamy songs that ooze indie vibes and echo longing voices of lyrical ambiguity. Then there are some who can appreciate the sentiment, but need a little more oomph before they can fully warm up to the feel the song is going for. For those of us in the second category, we have talented artists like Dinnerdate to help us out, with an ear for the right original to work their magic over, opening it up to an entirely new audience with their own musical preferences.
The beauty in this remix, other than the obvious elegance of the sound itself, is the fact that it caters to listeners in both of those categories, staying true enough to the original to satisfy this fan-base, but also working in its own touch for those craving a rhythmic beat to go with their serving of indie goodness. It’s the perfect balance of both worlds, and the perfect way for one of our favorite artists to break his period of relative silence over the last few months. For those wanting even more, there should be plenty more in the works from this name before the year is out. This will certainly help to tide us over until then.
Problem (Laura Zocca cover) (Chris Meid Remix)
Ever come across a remix that just works so magically well that you completely forget about how the original tune sounds like? Well we have one of those for you today. London-based producer Chris Meid released this remix of Laura Zocca‘s cover of Ariana Grande’s “Problem”, in which he completely flips the track making it his own. Starting off with pleasant piano chords and a tropical synth line, the tune gradually brightens up your mood as it goes along. The skilled vocals from Zocca are definitely fitting for this tropical goodness Chris Meid creates.
Following his collaborative track with Felix Jaehn a while back, the talented producer is definitely making a name for himself by coming out with tunes like this one. We are excited to see what else Chris has up his sleeve. Stream above and head to Chris’s Facebook page for a free download.
