Nato Feelz – Moonwalk [TMN Premiere]

Nato Feelz
Moonwalk [Bass Ammunition]

“Moonwalk” by Nato Feelz is a treasure. It’s a treat best served up on a solid sound system with the speakers turned way up so that your neighbors, depending on their musical tastes, will either love you completely or hate you with everything they’ve got. Today you get a first listen to “Moonwalk” right here in the dojo, so get those speakers ready.

Nato Feelz describes his sound as “Beats that make ya head nod” and that’s just what we get with this single. From the very beginning with the filtered synths you already begin to feel your head automatically sway until you hit the drop. No “EDM” build up needed, just a quick introduction that slams you right into the heat of things. From there, you’ll have more than just your head nodding as “Moonwalk” calls for a full body experience. The hybrid sound will bring trap and dubstep fans together under one roof, grooving together to one major tune. “Moonwalk” is now available as a free download.

[Electronic] Kllo – Virtue

Kllo
Virtue

On the heels of a lengthy world tour, Australian electronic pop duo Kllo have returned to share new music with us. Melbourne cousins Chloe Kaul and Simon Lam have a catchy sound characterized by Kaul’s ethereal vocals overlaid on intricate electronic production. They’ve found much success with previous EPs Cusp and Well-Worn, which is why we’re delighted by their announcement for debut LP Backwater, due out later this year on Ghostly.

In anticipation of their album, Kllo have released lead single “Virtue” today. Kaul’s distinctive singing style rings true throughout the song, while the duo’s electronic production talents shine. The cousins claim to draw inspiration from the xx, which is made clear by their conjunction of moody pop vocals and UK garage/techno style beats. If you’re a fan of this tune,  preorder Backwater here or catch them on tour in Europe/Australia at the end of this year.

[Electronic] Drake – Passionfruit (A&G Remix) [Andrew Tejada Cover]

Drake
Passionfruit (A&G Remix) [Andrew Tejada Cover]

With the recent Spotify boom and the decline of Soundcloud, the cover/remix package is becoming quite the go-to. One artist who has recently hopped on that with some success is A&G, who remixed Drake’s “Passionfruit” with the help of vocalist Andrew Tejada.

The tropically driven remix by A&G has a throwback sound to when the sub-genre was first circulating. It makes for a nice nostalgic Summer song. It’s got a chill vibe to it, but that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t make for a good record to get a party going. Dance-able and vivid, this new “Passionfruit” will be eaten up by party goers all season long. A&G released this one as a free download, so there’s no real reason to sleep on it.

[Electronic] Taska Black – Where We Go

Taska Black
Where We Go

“Where We Go” by Taska Black is one of Bitbird‘s most moving releases. That is saying a lot given the label’s highly creative output. The imprint has someone extremely talented on their hands and we don’t see them letting go anytime soon.

Taska Black only has a handful of tracks on his Soundcloud, including a remix for San Holo that Bitbird also put out. Taska Black’s sound isn’t something that can exactly be pinned down and described using genre termonology, which gives it a fresh edge that most producers don’t have. “Where We Go” shows masterful skill when it comes to melody. It’s catchy, but not in the overly refined pop sense. Rather, it’s just an awesome song. Get your copy of it today.

This slow jam gem is going to be a go-to track in our Summer playlist, but it’s likely not going to be only found in ours. Although the Summer is taken over by high energy festival records, tracks like Flapo’s slide through and take our breathe away. Check it out today and make sure to grab the free download before you head out.
