Often (Kygo Remix)

The weekend may be over, but that doesn’t mean all good vibes must come to an end. Leave it up to 22-year-old Kygo to make our mundane Monday a whole lot brighter with a sunny remix of The Weeknd’s “Often”. The Norwegian producer adds some flirtatious flair to the bass heavy original, transforming the sultry track into a summertime stunner.

The tropical maestro’s “Often” remix is intricately layered with snares and a catchy vocal edit, resulting in a track that is perfect for starting off the week right. Kygo is currently wrapping up the end of his summer tour with stops in South America and Europe, but will be making his way back to America soon.

Today the burgeoning producer has teased some dates for his forthcoming Endless Summer Tour with Thomas Jack and Amtrac, which kicks off Sept 26 in Nashville, TN. Anticipate the full announcement this Wednesday, which will also include dates in Europe.

The Holy Coast – The Space We Haunt [TMN PREMIERE]

The Holy Coast
The Space We Haunt

Whatever you did this weekend, we’re pretty sure you need some calming tunes to bring you into the reality that is another work week. While we already published a hearty Chill Dojo for you this morning, we realize you need a full eight hours of chill music help soften the blow. Luckily for you, we have this delightfully dreary premiere of “The Space We Haunt” to throw into the mix.

Surprisingly coming out of Phoenix, Arizona, this three-piece outfit has a sound perfect for drizzly Pacific Northwest days. Comprised of Keith Walker, Brett Davis, and Braden McCall, The Holy Coast are unsigned at the moment, but with their dreamy shoegaze style soundscapes, it won’t be long before people take notice. Creating a lackadaisical journey crafted through a heavily treated vocals, a simplistic guitar riff, and some spacey synths, “The Space We Haunt” has the perfect collection of elements to slowly slip away from what you’re thinking about, if only for a few minutes.

You can find this song and more on their self-titled EP, which is due out tomorrow on Common Wall Media.

Daktyl – Jungle Pips [TMN Premiere]

DAKTYL-JUNGLEPIPS

Jungle Pips

We’ve been following Daktyl for a while now, and we haven’t heard one mediocre track yet! His newest release, “Jungle Pips”, is on a new label You Tell Me. This new label seems to specialize in unique genres- non-existing ones especially. “Jungle Pips” consists of pitched vocals, funky stabs, a few apex breaks reminiscent of the days of jungle, and insane percussion. If this song doesn’t make you want to dance, then you must have forgotten your coffee this morning. Being one of the early releases from You Tell Me, we are excited to see what they have to come following this Daktyl release. If you can’t wait to hear them on SoundCloud, you can cop the album on beatport.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #94

chill dojo

Get set for an edition stacked with vocal delights and enough groove to last well through the week. German pair Gamper & Dadoni have been building momentum with each successive release this year, and their latest remix might just be their best yet. We were calling game over when Oliver Nelson and Tobtok unleashed their version of the Naughty Boy hit single, but this dance-floor igniter looks to have the final say on the matter. With all the trimmings of their signature style, the duo have re-invented this track to give the original a run for its money. Speaking of remakes, Sam Smith’s cover of ‘How Will I Know’ is another fitting tribute to an iconic piece of music history, and this deep house touch from London’s Chris Meid serves to accentuate the emotion even further. Again, it’s summer melodies and sax which are the heroes of this effort, bestowing a heavy sense of nostalgia on every line of these well-known lyrics. There is equal praise for the original works released this week as well, and Toronto’s Tep No caught our attention with this tune which is ready-built to be a summer anthem. The folks at SuicideSheep are always on point with their selections, and to have this picked up by their label, Seeking Blue, is a testament to the potential of both this song and the artist behind it. It’s not hard to picture the vivid image of festival crowds swaying in the afternoon heat, soaking up the feel-good vibes encapsulated here. French Kiwi Juice is no stranger to these kind of feelings, and every track posted from his recent Take Off EP has been oozing the sexy smoothness he’s famous for. This week’s reveal was ‘Higher in Love’, and as the name suggests, it’s one to share with that special someone for sure. We couldn’t end this week’s proceedings without a good dose of the tropics, and luckily dojo-favorite Manila Killa is happy to oblige with something truly beautiful. If this marks what he’s capable of at just 21 years of age, then we can’t wait to hear how his craftsmanship continues to evolve in the future to come.

As for now, that’s another edition in the books, but we’re steadily creeping towards a milestone of our own. Peace out.

Sunday Night Soul [Vol. 36]

Sunday Night Soul

With July coming to a close soon, we’re reminded that we’ve only got one more month of summer left to enjoy. As we look forward to soaking in every last ounce of sunshine possible, we hope to spend our nights immersed in some soothing sounds. Now, we don’t like to brag, but we’d like to think the best way for you to get your fix is through a hearty helping of Sunday Night Soul. Just like last week, we found it a bit difficult to pick out some standouts in this edition, so we’re leaving it up to our faithful ninjas out there to figure out which ones are their favorites. While this may seem like a bad sign at first, it’s really a testament to the quality of music we’ve been discovering over the past few weeks. Of course, this only makes our mouths water at what else lies in store for the weeks ahead.

[Dreamy] X3SR – a e r o d y n a m i c

avatars-000088894247-m1uqk6-original
X3SR
a e r o d y n a m i c

After adventuring around the Baker neighborhood of Denver for the past few days, we can officially say that we need a moment to wind down. While we’re prepped and ready to go enjoy The Underground Music Showcase’s fourth day, we’re admittedly a little exhausted from all the festivities.

With that being said, Miami 3-piece X3SR recently released “a e r o d y n a m i c” on SVNSET WAVES’ SVMMΞR SVN Vol 2 yesterday, and it’s absolutely perfect for our wind-down session. Featuring energetic percussion work with heavy use of hi-hats, this tune is a dreamy synth-driven ride that calls on associations of Tycho and Bonobo.

Whatever you’re up to, throw this on and enjoy your Sunday. After all, we’re all only hours away from having to return to the daily grind. Make sure you make the most of today.

[Dubstep] Varien – Gunmetal Black

artworks-000085796950-0z2902-original
Varien!
Gunmetal Black

It’s early as hell right now and the hangover has comfortably settled in its place. The only logical thing to do to cure this throbbing headache is to blast some Varien as loud as you can. The Monstercat native just unleashed an epic monstrosity to the world to which he takes dubstep to an entirely new cinematic level. Bringing in elements from the metal and hardcore genre, Varien’s new track, “Gunmetal Black”, is everything you need in life; whether you’re getting married or simply going to the grocery store for more eggs, this song is ideal for any and all settings.

Varien’s, “Gunmetal Black” appears to have been influenced by Chinese culture considering it makes you feel like you’re Mulan and you’re about to defeat the Huns. If that doesn’t sound like a good time to you, then maybe you should go on a Disney movie binge and watch that classic gem until you’ve convinced yourself otherwise. Varien effectively takes hold of our emotions and masterfully builds us up for easily one of the most epic releases we’ve had in a long time. So if you like to cure your hangovers with more hangovers, then this song is for you. Check it out on Beatport and rage on, ninjas.
