[Indie Pop] IYES – No Wonder

IYES - No Wonder
IYES
No Wonder

Following “So Crazy”, pop duo IYES released another lovely tune as a sneak peek of their upcoming album Part One. “No Wonder” gives a whole different vibe in comparison to their previous track, largely due to the joyful and uplifting melodies. The vocals are soothing and addictive to the ear. Subtle piano chords and light drums also accentuate the poppy vocals. As a surprise, there is a guitar solo in the middle of the song, followed by a series of bass synth to highlight the outro.

This delightful tune will definitely get you through the mid-week struggle, or make your day that much better. Keep IYES on your radar, you don’t want to miss out on more cool tunes as Part One nears its release.

Moonboy Inc. – WHY LONELY [TMN PREMIERE]

WHY LONELY

We may be miles away. We may be hours apart. No matter how you choose to measure distance, we’re on the same page as Berlin-based Moonboy Inc. It’s Thursday, a notorious party night around the globe, and “Why Lonely” has us feeling that groove.

While the lyrics swing towards the more melancholy side of songwriting, the instrumental elements are very much lively and danceable, driven by a lead piano melody. The inventively manipulated vocal samples are what first brings the song’s personality to life, latching listeners in from the get go. From there, it’s a mix of light percussion work, layered synths, and an additional, quite impassioned set of vocals from another singer.

This track is streaming on Moonboy Inc’s SoundCloud, as of today, but will eventually be found on his upcoming EP, Postcards From The Moon. We suggest you follow his account and keep an eye out for it.

[Future] Halsey – New Americana (Brooks Brown Remix)

Halsey
New Americana (Brooks Brown Remix)

Brooks Brown is one of the hottest up and coming producers in the game. If you don’t know him already, then you will in a moment. Not only will you know him, but you will love him, for his work sounds like it is coming from a veteran in the scene. Recently, the youngster did a remix of “New Americana” by Halsey that is to die for. He never manages to disappoint, whether it’s with originals or remixes; he always exceeds expectation time and time again. With this remix he stays with his future sound that he continues to hone. It’s a powerfully emotional record that is short and sweet as can be. Only thing is, there is no download for it, so you’re gonna have to stream it a billion times, which won’t be a problem.

[House] Rihanna – BBHMM (PatrickReza Remix)

BBHMM (PatrickReza Remix)

The #WompSquad leader just added another strong remix to his catalog. PatrickReza is back with a remix of Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money,” although the producer switched up the title in acronym form. This house bump he’s been on has been magical, and we’re glad it hasn’t stopped. As with the other tracks, Patrick brings his dirty fusion style that will bring all sorts of house heads together. This is certainly one of the better remixes of the Rihanna single, which isn’t really all that surprising given Patrick’s talent. Although I can’t speak for all the ninja’s, I’d fair to say it’s my personal favorite out of the bunch of interpretations that have come out. Want the track but don’t want to pay anything? It’s all good, because this flip is a freebie.

hard-lineup-image

Talk about a stacked lineup! Before we get to the good stuff, we hope you’ve grabbed your ticket already because tickets have long been sold out. Hard Summer Music Festival is probably one of the biggest and most popular summertime music festivals in California. It’s a must-go for electronic music enthusiasts and festival goers, considering how incredibly awesome the lineup is this year. HARD has moved their festival from Whittier Narrows to the Fairplex Southern California this year, which is great for the two-day fest because of its big capacity.

TMN is proud to be participating Hard Summer for the first time ever and we can’t tell you how excited we are. To get you mentally prepared and hyped up for this, we have compiled two playlists for each day. They feature memorable hits from electronic powerhouses like What So NotThe Glitch Mob, Ratatat, Porter Robinson, future acts including TchamiShiba San, Jai Wolf, and other rising artists like HermitudeSlow Magic, Big Gigantic and many more.

Too much dopeness, yet so little time. We hope you’ve figured out your schedule because it’ll be a tough time for all the music fans to watch all your favorite artists. We suggest downloading the Hard Summer app to take a look at the set times so you don’t get lost in the middle of the five stages.

Vibe away to these tracks and we hope see you ninjas and ninjettes there!

[Indie-Dance/Nu-Disco] Midnight Pool Party – Disease (Eau Claire Remix)

eauclaire
Midnight Pool Party
Disease (Eau Claire Remix)

D.C. based indie-dance and disco bender Eau Claire just might be one of the hardest working producers in the dance game right now. It seems like not another week passes without another gem bubbling up from her, and after most recently appearing with us behind a shiny take on Saint Motel’s “Just My Type”, Eau Claire’s back with another window into an ever-evolving production psyche on a remix of Midnight Pool Party’s “Disease”.  While the original fits squarely into that shapeshifting indie-dance niche, Eau Claire showers a glossy revision with ample disco synths, subdued percussion and some mid-track vocal filtering that would make Imogen Heap quiver with delight.  While this writer might be a sucker for sunny dance beats which hearken visions of rooftops, beaches and pools; Eau Claire stands above much of the pack with her tightly wound production and crisply composed dance structures. If Eau Claire keeps rolling on like this, we have a feeling it won’t be long before she’s being mentioned in the same breath as some of the underground dance scene’s biggest names. We’ve already been doing exactly that. Stream Eau Claire’s remix for Midnight Pool Party above and for our friends in the U.S., take a peek at Eau Claire’s next slate of performances below.

Eau Claire Upcoming Shows:

July 31st – Washington, DC @ U Street Music Hall
August 8th-9th – Palm Springs, CA @ Splash House
August 22nd – Brooklyn, NY @ Elements Music Festival
August 29th – Los Angeles, CA @ Skybar at Mondrian
