[Seductive Sonatas] StéLouse – The City Ep


Denver based producer, StéLouse, just put out an EP on DIE HIGH Records which touches a few different vibes. “The City EP” features songs from a few genres, including post trap (as BBC referred to it for Wave Racer’s mix), jersey club and chill trap. The first track on “The City EP” is “T-Shirt” which is probably the hardest songs of this style I have ever heard! Bed squeaks on the buildup, funky slap bass, and crazy tom rolls make up this unregistered heater. The vibes on “Sixteen” are a bit sweeter. With smooth chords that will make you feel like you’re laying on a beach in Australia, this is one of our favorites on “The City EP”! My personal favorite on the EP would have to be “Joyride”. “Joyride” goes from a trap banger to an anthem Jersey club tune! On the last track, StéLouse winds things down with the title record on the EP. “The City” is the most seductive of all tracks from this EP. The brass on “The City” makes “the Sexy Sax Max” look like a joke. In it’s entirety, “The City EP” creates one of the most unique experiences you can have listening to music. Seeing as StéLouse gave this one out for free, we’re hoping we hear songs from “The City EP” when roaming festivals this year!

[Liquid DnB] Porter Robinson – Sad Machine (Tut Tut Child Remix)

Porter Robinson
Sad Machine (Tut Tut Child Remix)

A couple of weeks ago Porter Robinson released yet another single, “Sad Machine”, off his upcoming album, Worlds. Now that the internet has recovered from hearing one of the most adorable songs to have surfaced across our music feed, Tut Tut Child decided to throw us down the rabbit hole of liquid feels with his bootleg rendition of “Sad Machine”. The drum and bass producer paid homage to Porter by infusing a taste of liquidy goodness into the wondrous track.

Tut Tut Child centered his bootleg around the melodic undertones of the female robot vocals in which he places a great emphasis on the contrasting power of Porter’s voice along with hers. With the subtle addition of the soft snares, he transforms “Sad Machine” into a happy, upbeat, feel good tune to get you through any day. This is the perfect tune to get you ready for those endless summer nights with the people you love most, so grab your free download, crank up the volume, and let this robot make you feel super giddy inside.

Toy Cities – Pretend [TMN PREMIERE]

Toy Cities

Uniting under the moniker Toy Cities, friends from bands The Aviation Oranges and Moving Mountains drew upon their adept previous histories to bring forth a complimentary contradiction of tightly melodic structured sound and hazy indie fuzz.

Presenting the premier of fresh track Pretend, Toy Cities have in their hands an accomplished offering of the polished, yet raw and scuzzy, dream-pop variety. Laden with spacious synths, resonating reverb and walls of sound plentiful enough to build your hopes from: Pretend embodies the introspective woozy swoon of shoe-gaze gone. Modernised, revived and tightly wrapped in densely melodic indie; Toy Cities penchant for perfected song craft, simmers and erupts so confidently, the after effect feels effortless.

Produced by Chris Moore (whose golden touch has graced the likes of Yeah Yeah Yeahs and TV on the Radio), the outcome of offbeat and immaculate indie is perhaps expected, but nevertheless present.

With a competence of craft that exceeds its contemporaries, Pretend is an almost ironic titling of a track which more or less sings of the real deal.

[Hip-Hop] Ghostface Killah & BADBADNOTGOOD – Six Degrees (Feat. Danny Brown)

Ghostface Killah & BADBADNOTGOOD
SIX DEGREES Ft. Danny Brown

After dropping their EP III earlier this month, Canadian trio BADBADNOTGOOD have teamed up with the legendary Ghostface Killah and Detroit’s Danny Brown to bring us a bone-chilling new single. Spitting vicious bars over an unnervingly eerie instrumental, both emcees ensure that you’ll want to maintain all “Six Degrees” of separation from them. Ghostface’s cold, calculated flow serves as a perfect contrast to Danny’s unruly attitude, yet neither emcee sounds out of place on the haunting number.

Check out the single above, and make sure to pre-order yourself a copy before it drops on June 23rd.

If it was, we apologize, and we’d like to make it up to you with the incredible mix of tracks we have prepared for you below.

[Review] Crywolf – Angels EP


After weeks of letting one of the most beautiful EP’s collect dust in my inbox, I have finally found the inspiration to serve it justice. Now that the cobwebs have been removed, and the emotional channels have opened up, I am eager to share my experience with all of you after hearing the latest EP from one of TMN’s favorite artists, Crywolf.

Last month, we did a memorable write-up for Crywolf about the release of his new single, “Eyes Half Closed,” off his new EP, Angels (out now on iTunes). If you had the chance to read what we had to say, then you already know about the intense feels we shared with all of you that day. Since then, Crywolf relinquished the euphoria of Angels to the world, and has sent us all into sensory overload. Each and every song on this EP tells an intrepid story full of tragedy, love, hope and reassurance. With it being a continuous EP, Crywolf gives us an excuse to dive into an introspective state of reflection for twenty-five minutes.

On a personal note, I have been putting this review off over the month now. Despite being behind, I truly feel this EP deserves more than enough attention than it already has received. Each and every week I find myself blasting this impeccable masterpiece during the moments in which I require some solace. Not only has this album given me a new sense of understanding, but it has played a major role in today’s electronic music world. As we continue on the path towards unification through music, it is important to note the artists that are making the bold move to create music that intricately speaks for itself. Crywolf’s EP, Angels, is artistic proof that we are now starting to evolve in the right direction. We hope you enjoy this EP as much as we did. Prepare for one of the most surreal experiences of your life, and let the euphoric melodies take you through your own journey towards that conclusive resolve of understanding.
