Stellar (Matt Dash 2014 Bootleg)
There is nothing better than waking up to some chilly weather, a nice cup of coffee, and a groovy tune to get you through the rest of the day. A lot of us are most likely still recovering from weekend 2 of Coachella, and let’s be honest, that could take at least a week. Trust us, most of us are still not fully up to par with reality after the first weekend. Don’t worry though, you are in luck, because here at TMN we have a superb team of professional party goers who know exactly how to remedy those gnarly post-festival hangovers with the perfect song that will surely give you that ideal boost you so desperately need.
Today, we have a special tune for all you deep house divas out there from small town dental student, Matt Dash. Known for those Pryda snares, funky bass lines, and groovy breakdowns, Matt Dash is changing up the production scene and bringing back those feel good house vibes. After his successful unofficial remix of Lorde’s hit single, “Team,” he decided to take things up a notch with a bootleg rendition of “Stellar” by Daddy’s Groove. Matt dashes up this song with some stellar synths, glitchy layers, and a breakdown that will instantly put your stanky face on.
You can tell Matt gets his inspiration from the likes of Carl Cox, Frankie Knuckles (RIP), Eric Prydz, etc., and has solidified his sound through the course of producing. It is refreshing to hear tracks like this because sometimes, we just need a break from those chaotic drops. Let this tune help you groove through the rest of the day and get your free download while you’re at it.
FREQUENCY F/ Carl (Prod. Jay Retro)
While we typically reserve songs this soulful for Sundays, we couldn’t help but share this latest single from Jarred A.G. with you all today. Veering from the typical grungy, streetwise anthems we’ve grown accustomed to, the hardened emcee gives us a glimpse of his sensitive side on this smooth Jay Retro produced cut. Featuring a guest verse from Carl (of Hurt Everybody), “Frequency” is exactly the type of mellow track you’d want to tune into during an afternoon break, just as you’ve wrapped up lunch and begin contemplating your plans for the evening. It also proves once again, that Jarred is not one to be slept on, and if you’re like us, you’ll have replayed his verse at least a few times by the end of the day (his singing voice isn’t half bad either).
Stream the single above, and look out for more details on Jarred’s CANVAS LP, set to drop later this year.
We’ve been following Little Dragon‘s every move leading up to the release of their fourth official long player, and this morning the Swedish dance-poppers have unveiled a third single off of Nabuma Rubberband. “Let Go” is a slow burning slice of melodic pop, leaning on a stripped down, sultry Yukimi Nagano vocal and subdued percussion; which to the delight of their purist fans falls more in line with the minimal dance sound of their debut self-titled album than the sticky-sweet electro-bounce the world at large has fallen for. Regardless, this one will no doubt find its way into the hearts of Little Dragon fans both old and new with its beautiful instrumentation and obvious crossover shine. We simply can’t contain our collective excitement around here for the album’s official release date of May 13 and subsequent live tour, so if you happen to vacate one of the lucky cities on their next jaunt, we highly recommend you don’t skip on the chance to be whisked into a gorgeous Little Dragon live set. Stream “Let Go” above.
Sometimes we take music for granted. We’re so used to having it around, we forget to take a moment and appreciate all the talented people in the world that fill our silence with glorious sounds. But imagine the world sans music for a second. Sounds like a horrible, horrible nightmare, doesn’t it? Luckily, this could never happen. And even if it did, the Indie Dojo’s got an arsenal of sweet, sweet lullabies to send you back into blissful dreams full of guitars, drum machines, violins, triangles, shakers, tambourines, djembes ….and the list goes on and on and on….and on. You know where to find us.

No Rest For The Wicked (Remix)
Subscribers to Beats Music were treated to a pleasant surprise earlier today, when Lykke Li decided to stream the remix of her single, “No Rest For The Wicked,” exclusively through the audio service. This is the internet though, and nothing stays exclusive for very long. Within hours, fans who previously felt left out, could now hear the glorious pairing that is A$AP Rocky and Lykke Li. For Rocky, it’s the latest in a string of heart-stirring pop collaborations that already includes previous team ups with Gesaffelstein, Jessie Ware and Florence Welch. By adding a little street flair to the already astonishing single, the Harlem native makes the song more accessible to a wider audience, without hurting its overall message.
Check out the stream above, and make sure to pre-order Lykke Li’s upcoming album, I Never Learn, before it hits shelves stateside on May 6th.

Like Any Other Day
The seventh annual Record Store Day took place this past Saturday and music fans from around the world gathered to support their local record shops and get their hands on some pieces of new music from their favorite artists.
The long list of releases included some big names like Sunny Day Real Estate, LCD Soundsystem, CHVRCHES, and Disclosure to name a few. Also on that list were Australian synth-pop pioneers Cut Copy. Releasing a double-sided 10” vinyl, the band made their B-side single Like Any Other Day, available to stream. This psychedelic ballad is filled with a beautiful blend of sweeping synth and acoustic melodies that show why Cut Copy continue to be one of Australia’s finest exports of electronic music.
