Scream (Original Mix)

Do you know what today is, ninjas? Well you better get ready to scream this one at the top of your lungs because it’s Friday and we’re just about ready to turn our weirdness levels up so high that we surpass any and all signs of normality. Kicking us out of our mundane weekly routines and into a 3 day mindset of poor decision-making are two artists that know how to take us 0 to 100 more than Drake. Seriously.

Los Angeles’, Henry Fong, and Australia’s J-Trick are both notorious for their impeccable DJing skills and genre-blending productions. The two decided to combine Big Room House with Melbourne Bounce in their new original collaboration, “Scream”. After its debut at Tomorrowland during Martin Garrix’s  epic performance, it was obvious that Henry Fong and J-Trick had created easily one of the most talked about songs of festival season. Bursting with Fong’s signature Big Room synth melodies and J-Tricks Melbourne Bounce-style breakdowns, “Scream” mixes together a variety of badass elements that ultimately make us wish we could rage our butts off like we did all Summer long. If you think you can go without screaming during this song, then you’re in for one helluva wake up call.

Undress Your Soul

With our day finally coming to a slow halt, we’ve about reached that time where we can finally kick off our workin’ shoes and replace them with our favorite fuzzy bunny slippers. While we’re at it, we might as well open up a bottle of Chardonnay and get into a more relaxed state of mind. Helping sooth our aching minds with some refreshing acoustic melodies are The DuBarry’s and their soul-quenching new original, “Undress Your Soul”.  The DuBarry’s have completely stripped us of our worries and exposed our ears to a beautifully arranged set of impeccable instrumentals, tranquilizing harmonies, and intrinsically moving lyrics.

Don’t give it up, no, oh, you said to me..

Who would have thought that being vulnerable could translate into complete and utter euphoria? “Undress Your Soul” exudes an incredible wave of emotion over us as it effortlessly builds into a true crescendo, only to subtly dissolve itself into a lingering trail of elusive notes. The DuBarry’s have really caught our attention with this delightful number, and we’re about on the edge of our seats just waiting for what is to come next.

Stay connected with The DuBarry’s on Twitter, Facebook, and Soundcloud.

Coronus, The Terminator

Flying Lotus released yet another peek into his upcoming album today with “Coronus, The Terminator.” While the tracks we’ve heard thus far seem to lean a bit more towards the darkness of his 2010 album, Cosmogramma, the latest glimpse combines those vibes with the aesthetic of his most recent project, Until the Quiet Comes. The result is ominous, yet relaxed and glimmering, making for a laid-back, albeit brief, listening experience. Give this one a spin above–You’re Dead! is out October 7th via Warp Records.

My Love (feat. Jess Glynne) [Young Bombs Remix]

Do you hear that ringing noise in the background? We’re pretty sure it’s Tiesto calling and he just wants to let us know that the Young Bombs are back with yet another FIRE remix that’s about to make us cry tears of straight PLUR. After familiarizing ourselves with their remixes, we had the honor of premiering their most recent version of Cazzette’s, “Sleepless”, to which they took us back in time to the year 2011 and made us reminisce on all those synchronous moments we’ve shared with others. Now that some time has passed and the guys have given us a couple of tastes of their yummy productions, Young Bombs are back again and ready to intensify our sweet tooths with their latest remix of everyone’s favorite Route 94 baby makin’ jam, “My Love” featuring the lovely Jess Glynne.

Jam packed with heavenly chord progressions, adorable synthesized melodies, and a BOMB.COM breakdown, these guys have out done themselves once again. Is there no stopping this dynamic duo in making us want to do cart wheels in the front lawn in our furry boots while wearing kandi bracelets? Probably not, but who cares, right? We’re just here to enjoy some happy music with some Young Bombs; so before you go grab the hot glue gun, some feathers, and heart pasties, make sure to snag your free download and let this one tickle your inner Calvin Harris like never before.

[EP Review] Lucas Chambon – Instinct

10670019_272216459654470_4035886306486812688_n

Ahhhh, the morning just seems so much better now that the sun decided to take a break from microwaving us to near death. With the morning coffee in hand, ear plugs in, and the rest of the world put on mute, we can finally immerse ourselves into the music and drown out our responsibilities with some auditory relief. Frenchman, Lucas Chambon is helping us float on top of the water with his debut EP titled Instinct (out on Los Angeles’ Next Wave Records). Filled with gloriously synthesized melodies, groovy basslines, and atmospheric elements, Lucas Chambon takes us on a whirlwind of emotion-evoked productions in this mesmerizing new work of art.

From the very beginning, we instantly transcend into the depths of the ocean with “Citadel” to which we ride along with the natural ebb and flow of these euphoric forces. We can confirm that Atlantis does exist because Lucas sheds light on the mythical underwater city. As we continue floating along the celestial frequency of ethereal sound waves, we eventually come to the surface to take a deep breath of fresh air with “At Dawn”. Before we know it, we’re back beneath the icy cold water, traveling with the effortless current into a kaleidoscope of beautiful colors in “Turqouise”.

Instinct is out now on Los Angeles’ very own Next Wave Records – the first free record label out to promote good music and share it to the world without a price to pay. We think Lucas made the perfect choice in teaming up with them because who doesn’t love free tunes? Crazy people, we tell you.

Get To Know: LAXX [TMN Exclusive Interview]

LAXXTMN

Since being snapped up by dubstep heavyweights Never Say Die last year, DJ and producer LAXX has had a whirlwind few months. Upon releasing his iconic ‘Step One’, which saw heavy support from Flux Pavilion), he subsequently released three EPs, including the recent free download series ‘Step Free.’ With his unique approach to production and eye for a killer hook, his gig schedule is beginning to pick up, as his booking increase. We got speaking to LAXX to discover more about working with the Never Say Die team, future releases and where he sees this future heading.

TMN: Firstly, how did you come up with the name LAXX?

I’m not really sure how I came up with it, but it had a sound to it I instantly loved. Its kind of ironic too, because its slang for being lazy and I’m in the studio basically 7 days a week when I’m not travelling and playing shows.

TMN: Big ups on the hilarious teaser for ‘Step Free’ that you put out with SKisM, is he usually like that?  

Thank you. We were both laughing constantly while putting that together. The original version was like 5 minutes long, so we decided to use the “directors cut”, but it still cracks me up when I see it. SKisM isn’t really like that, it’s a shame, but I think his alter ego will come out at some point! Especially if I tell him I want to do any more free downloads. He’s a top guy in all seriousness, he works ridiculously hard and knows instantly if a track is going to ignite. I think the last thing I sent over his only words were “shut up” and “ridiculous” That’s meant in a good sense, by the way.

TMN: Why did you decide to give away the EP for free and will there be a ‘Step Three’ release any time soon?

‘Step Free’ was a project I had in mind for a while, I love giving something back to the people supporting my music, and this was the best way to do it. Every track on the EP was hand picked and some of them took nearly a year to finish, so this was a project I had planned out for a long time. I think I spent about two months deciding what tracks would go on there and making sure they were as perfect as I wanted them to be. There was a lot of blood sweat and tears that went into it. With regards to my next release, you’ll just have to wait and see… You’ll find out very soon.

TMN: For me the biggest track from the free series is ‘Untouchable’. Can you tell us the creative process for writing the track and how long it took to write this banger?

‘Untouchable’ was one of the tracks which took nearly a year to finish. I’d written part of the idea, and kept coming back to it, and then had a mad studio bender of about 3 weeks and worked on it nearly every day. I had an idea in my head and just started piecing it together, I think put down some drums, and then made a basic version of the lead and resampled it an insane amount of times. Its strange, when you get a vibe off a track, its kind of like you lose yourself and focus so intently on the track that nothing else matters, then you kind of take a step back and think fuck, what happened?

TMN: Who has been your biggest inspiration for your career and your most recently releases on Never Say Die?

I really like every artist on the label. Zomboy is smashing it, I like the direction he’s gone in, where he’s kind of tried out every genre and put his stamp on it. Eptic is a monster too, I get sent a lot of versions of tracks he’s working on, some deeper stuff recently and it keeps me inspired. MUST DIE! is insane also – the remix he did for me has been crushing it worldwide. So yeah, everyone on NSD is doing things I like.

TMN: Do you have any plans to play state side soon? And what are your top 3 tracks to play out live at the moment? 

I’m coming for you baby! America is one of my favourite places in the world, and you guys have always been some of the most dedicated fans. Long story short, I’m coming to take over! I’ve been playing out a lot of my new sounds and its been crazy seeing the reaction, but aside from that I love double dropping Flosstradamus – ‘Mosh Pit’, Yellow Claw – ‘Lick Dat’ and Gent and Jawns – ‘Turnup’ – (Kill The Noise Remix). Biggup!

Be sure to nab LAXX’s ‘Step Free’ here.
