[R&B/Soul] JUICY – Cast A Spell EP

The Belgian duo JUICY has released their debut EP Cast A Spell as they attempt to expand their popularity from Europe to the rest of the world. Their iconic retro-infused R&B sound has satisfied the ears of so many in and around their home, but the worldwide appeal is obvious.

JUICY’s Cast A Spell comes in at five tracks deep. These two ladies certainly know how to put together a captivating project as each track embodies a different mood and tone, giving the overall project a lot of depth. They mash together familiar sounds with new twists and turns, keeping things fresh, but in focus. If the duo was looking to actually cast a spell, they succeeded in it taking hold of us.

’Count Our Fingers Twice’
’Die Baby Die’
’Mouldy Beauty’
’Something Is Gone’

The Beyønd Collective has recently become one of the main features in the Denver nightlife, helping maintain the ever-evolving underground scene. Gabriel Tavarez is at the forefront, with duties starting from the ground up, literally.

[Hybrid Trap] UBER KINGS – Fock

UBER KINGS
Fock

The Sydney to LA act UBER KINGS have a full length project on the horizon. It’s not quite here yet, but today we do have a single from the project to share with you called “Fock” that teases what’s to come.

“Fock” is a hybrid original that subtly pays tribute to much older rave sounds from the 90’s. It weaves through differing styles, jumbling sounds together in an orchestrated chaos that absorbs your attention. If this is a sign for what’s to come, expect big things from Keeping The Fat when it drops. No date is set yet, but expect more details to come very soon. For now, enjoy “Fock” from UBER KINGS.

Nine Inch Nails – Closer (Nick Evol Remix) [TMN Premiere]

Nine Inch Nails
Closer (Nick Evol Remix)

With festival season upon us, producers are bringing out the big remixes/edits. Most are aiming at current pop or R&B hits, but Nick Evol took a different approach with his remix. He brought back a classic from Nine Inch Nails and transformed it into an industrial electro delicacy.

The dark sound of the re-imagined “Closer” must have been inspired by the likes of Rezz, but Nick’s own sound is unique from his influences. He takes them a step further and in a different direction, capitalizing on his singularity instead of simply treating this as a knock-off remix. This is just the flip out of left field that we’ve been looking for and doing justice to NIN is not an easy thing, but Nick pulled this one off nicely. We’re happy to premiere it to you today, along with the opportunity for you to download it for free!
