[Electro House] Wuki – Jolt

Wuki
Jolt [Warpath Records] OUT NOW

When we first read the press release about this tune, we were instantly intrigued. Wuki is a Denver boy, and as you know, we roll deep in Denver. While some might think that the Denver scene gets some favoritism, we can assure you that they’d be wrong. This fine city just happens to have ample amounts of talented musicians.

After we got over the fact that Wuki was from the 303, the thing that drew us to this track the most was it’s hard electro house nature. It’s been a while since we’ve heard dance floor devastating buzzing synths that assure every dancer in the room that they haven’t done enough cardio to keep up with this track. It’s big, glitchy, and has a depth in sound that you don’t hear everyday.

Yes, we may bleed orange and blue, but our true affinity in the Mile High City roots itself in artists like Wuki.

[Remix] Portugal. The Man – Evil Friends (Jake One Remix) (Feat. Danny Brown)

Portugal. The Man
Evil Friends (Jake One Remix Feat. Danny Brown)

If it’s “Evil Friends” you’re looking for, you could do much worse than Danny Brown. Danny isn’t shy when it comes to tackling beats, which explains why his list of collaborations includes names as diverse as Purity Ring and Charli XCX. Still, Portugal. The Man is unexplored territory for the Detroit spitter, but with the help of producer Jake One, the collaboration manages to work perfectly.

Flipping the title track of the group’s latest album, Jake One captures some of the more downtempo moments of the original, while adding in some steady drum patterns to transform it into a hip-hop ready soundscape. Danny handles the rest of the legwork, delivering some energetic yet effortless bars to help set the mood. It’s a great reminder of the diversity he employs, and the track helps to whet our appetite a bit as we patiently wait for Old, dropping September 30th. And if you haven’t listened to it yet, make sure to grab Portugal. The Man’s Evil Friends, in stores now.

[EDM] WALLA – Nature (Pistols and Pints Remix)

WALLA---NATURE-p&pREMIX-COVER-ART-v2
WALLA
Nature (Pistols & Pints Remix)

There’s nothing quite like a success story to add more intrigue to a band. Some bands just fall into working together out of conveniencce, and some really spawn out of some hard times. Los Angeles based WALLA is definitely the latter. This five piece formed out of different times, places, and hardships. By some divine chance, they ended up finding eachother out of love for inventing new wavelengths.

Today we find ourselves talking about the Pistols and Pints remix of WALLA’s tune “Nature.” While WALLA has little information out there about them, P&P have even less. This LA based duo (we’re assuming) have crafted one blast of a indie dance tune, infusing uplifting synths and a four to the floor beat. The end result is an energetic house tune that will surely carry your party into the wee hours of the morning.

[Electro Soul] Face+Heel – Chipped Tooth

Face+Heel
Chipped Tooth

Sometimes simplicity isn’t so simple. Meet Face+Heel, the Cardiff via Bristol based duo who are blending beats, synths and classical piano backgrounds in the most beguiling fashion. The composition is creative, the product effortless.

Taken from their forthcoming EP, title track “Chipped Tooth” follows the acclaim of last years debut with some masterfully crafted and contemplative electro-soul. A cool concoction of textured sound and clipped beats, blended with a mellifluous Rn’B-esque vocal. Chipped Tooth easily slides under an experimental status, but what is admirable here is the moderated and controlled curation. Face+Heel have managed to create the illusion of space within their sound. A considered and stark musical arrangement, with a dash of vocal polyphony for substance.

Imagine The XX procure the power of time travel and meet Portishead, cira Dummy recording and say “hey guys, could we make this album with you”? Well this is what that product would sound like. All encompassing late night bedroom musing material. Enjoy it.

“Chipped Tooth” is the title track, taken from the forthcoming EP Chipped Tooth. Available to download now and due for release on the 30th of September.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #50

chill dojo

Summer is certainly the season of music and this year has been very good to us indeed. Our recent Mega Summer Playlists are testament to that, not to mention the months of amazing chill music that have brought a whole variety of unique sounds to our ears. Even though the season is winding down now, as long as we have these vibes flowing through the speakers, the feelings of summer will never fade. And that’s exactly how it should be, all year round.

If you didn’t catch our earlier preview of the new single from RAC, this is your official message that it’s one not to be missed. Everything is perfectly on song with this chilled summer anthem, from the groovy chords to the fun lyrics just made to be sung along with friends. The whole track has a free-spirited feel that you wish could last forever. And when it comes to summer anthems, Bondax has quite a few to their name this year, with ‘Giving it All’ sure to be on everybody’s shortlist. Add in the funky bouncing style of French Kiwi Juice to that equation, and you have a certified winner. We also have to pay our respects to Kaytranada this season, for his work would have been part of many a summer festivity in plenty of cities all over. He’s currently embarking on a winter tour of Australia right now, but if these next two features are any indication, he’s sure to be heating things up and getting dancefloors bumping. Whether it’s on a sweet instrumental or on the remix, he always brings the fire. Now usually when it comes to females featuring on chill tracks, we’re praising the incredible vocals they bring to the song. It’s not often we get to speak about female producing talent, but Poland’s Chloe Martini is definitely one on our radar, and damn are we excited about what she brings to this mix. We really do hope this will be a common trend in these playlists in the near future. What has been a common occurence in recent weeks though is the work of DJ AA, who’s back again with a blend of French Kiwi Juice and The Fugees, which sound like the ingredients for the perfect summer cocktail. Well it’s a damn good mix and we’d certainly drink it all day.

Actually, a cocktail would go down pretty well with this playlist. We recommend mixing one up before you hit that play button. Peace out.

[MEGA SUMMER PLAYLIST] Volume 3 – Alternative

TMN Alt Summer

Summer might be nearing an end, and for some of you, that means the new school year is on the horizon. We at TMN though are here to remind you that as long as the weather’s still warm and the sun is still shining, there’s plenty of opportunities to enjoy yourself. As a tribute to our absolute favorite season of the year, we’ve assembled four Mega Summer Playlists for your listening pleasure. Last week we brought you over 130 tracks of pure Hip-Hop goodness, and the week prior, we kicked off our series with an awesome Indie Rock/Fock playlist. Next week, we’ll  close things out with the final edition, which will be a massive EDM playlist guaranteed to end your summer with a resounding bang. This week’s collection however, is all bout the Alternative hits. What exactly counts as “Alternative” you may ask? Well, really it’s anything that doesn’t fit in with our other three themes. In fact, this might be our most exciting playlist of all, because since it isn’t clearly defined, it means anything can go here.

With that being said, we really hope this makes the last moments of your summer that much more enjoyable. So press play, kick back by the pool, throw on those Wayfarers, turn your speakers to full blast and get ready to chill, HARD.
