Sunday Night Soul [Vol. 9]

Sunday Night Soul

We did promise you that 2014 would be an even bigger year for soul than 2013 right? Well, this edition of Sunday Night Soul is already paying dividends on that statement. This was certainly our most challenging week in the series. With so many diverse selections to sort through, we were having fits trying to perfect the order. We’d like to think we did a fairly admirable job, but we’ll let you be the judges of that. Regardless of the arrangement, we’ve got a stellar lineup here for you tonight. From the spectacular sounds of vocalists like Benjamin Clementine, Kwabs, Kyla La Grange, Daniela Andrade and Jean Deaux, to absolutely decadent remixes from Max Liese, WoodysProduce, Jeftuz, starRo, and Les Fleurs Du Mal, we guarantee you’ll get addicted to at least one song you hear in this collection, easily our largest yet. So what are you waiting for? The night might still be young, but you’ve got plenty of work ahead of you if you want to be able to get through this playlist in one sitting.

The Hip-Hop Dojo [Vol. 16]

TMN Hip Hop Dojo 2

It’s no secret now that The Hip-Hop Dojo hasn’t been the most consistent playlist here at TMN, and that’s due to a multitude of different factors. I’m not here to make excuses however, and the lack of hip-hop goodness lately is totally on me. It’s a new year though folks, and my resolution from here on out is to continue providing you with the dopest hip-hop content from across the net on a regular basis.

Let’s get the ball rolling quickly with this first edition of 2014, because it’s definitely one of our strongest playlists to date. Right off the bat you may notice that we’re starting things off with a Christmas anthem. We know the Holidays are over, but that Peanuts sample by producer J1K was way too good to pass up. Since we didn’t have a December edition anyway, just think of BIZ’s “Christmas Time Is Here” as a late present from all of us to you. Speaking of Christmas, we follow our first entry up with a laidback  single from Michael Christmas named after the Quentin Tarantino classic, “Jackie Brown.” Our next few items carry on the chill vibes, with many of them utilizing a throwback sound similar to the one employed by Joey Bada$$ and Pro Era. Of course Joey and his collective are featured here as well, spreading the love on the eclectic “Sol Luna.” While those dudes from Brooklyn keep with the sweet talking, Nemo Achida prefers to take a more “Hands On” approach, teaming up with 88-Keys and BJ The Chicago Kid for a smooth new cut.

Our next selection would’ve been a perfect one to start your day off with, as rapper Chris Morris opens with “Yo it’s like Sunday morning waking up,” over some supremely ill production from Nabeyin. Moving on, we’ve got the return of Dojo veteran and TDE signee, Isaiah Rashad, who brings us a sly tribute to “Brad Jordan,” better known to the rap community as Scarface. You should be familiar with two of our next collaborators, as Waldo and Sango have both been featured on this page multiple times before. This time around, they’re accompanying British femcee Little Simz on the juicy cut, “Mandarin Oranges.” Speaking of familiarity, hip-hop heads should definitely recognize the instrumental on GoldLink‘s “The Heart,” which is the same one used by Kendrick Lamar for “The Heart Pt. 2.” It’s always tough to beat an original from K Dot, but the West Virginia brings his A-game here, with a spastic delivery definitely that gives the track an edge of its own. Meanwhile, Azizi Gibson hops on some bluesy Flying Lotus production to ring in the New Year properly with “Libras Don’t Die.”

Things take a darker turn in our next suite of entries, with the always slick Rapsody leading this group off over some dope, downtempo 9th Wonder drums. Hefna Gwap is certainly not in a celebratory mode on “Happy Birthday (Fuck That)”, while Dillan Ponder brings us another ominous track with his latest single, “Hive.” While Alexander Spit‘s “Bitter Suite Symphony” sounds nothing like The Verve classic, it’s certainly a formidable number all its own. Sa-Roc shows us her “True Mastery”  of the English language on this fierce new cut, while Verbal Kent teams up with Khrysis to give us all a gritty lesson in “Raponomics.” If there ever were an expert in that subject though, it would be Raekwon, who brings along T.I. and the late Doe B to help him out on “I Wanna Know.”  Like most rappers, Truck North is out to prove he’s the number one “Chief Rocka,” hopping on a revamped version of the Lords of the Underground classic. Find out if he does that one any justice.

 Alexander Dreamer employs his “Freedom of Speech” on this dope tune that samples the intro to Coldplay‘s “Charlie Brown.” Julian Malone keeps things rather abrupt on the hard hitting “Bitche$,” but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t pack a mean punch. Bodega Bamz brings us a real banger on the Electric Bodega remix of his single, “Don Francisco,” featuring French Montana. Next in our lineup, we’ve got a few well known commodities, as Audio Push strive to prove they’re better than all these other “Juveniles,” hooking up with Logic and Jill Scott over a spectacular beat provided by Hit-Boy. Miami emcee Eskeerdo is out to fight the “Devil’s Work,” hopping on a sample of Miike Snow‘s single of the same name. Meanwhile, Topaz Jones questions whether he’s “Living A Lie,” on his recent introspective single. K.B. Starr is ready to plead his case for why he thinks “New England Girls” are the best over some incredibly fresh production from SevnthWonder. Our final pair of tracks comes in the form of two upbeat remixes, first with Yonas putting his own stamp on Lorde‘s “Team,” and then Zak Downtown closing things out with the addicting “City’s Ours,” which flips another remix, the Flume revision of Hermitude‘s “HyperParadise.”

We hope you guys enjoyed our sixteenth edition of The Hip-Hop Dojo as much as we did! As always, you can send all submissions/suggestions to and

[Indie/Electronic] Lupa – Eyes Unclouded

Lupa Music
Eyes Unclouded

She goes by Lupa, her real name being Imogen Jones, and she is only 15 years old.

The classically trained violinist from Sydney started using her violin skills and mixing them with drum beats creating her new love, songwriting. This might be the most wonderful thing about her, Lupa writes, records, and produces all of her music in her bedroom at home. Her beautifully stunning indie/electronic sound has a laidback approach with a twist of eeriness. Her song “Eyes Unclouded” has lyrics of someone way beyond Lupa’s years. The story is simple and sweet, believing someone is perfect until you see who they really are when you look closely. The mix of violins, Lupa’s synthetic voice, and the electronic melodies make this song intoxicating to the ears. Cannot wait to see where this young artist goes.

[Oh Baby] Mar – Man X Woman

Man X Woman

How about we start this New Year off with a little sexy?

Ok, a lot sexy?

Enter Amsterdam artist Mar who has released a super sensual electronic with a touch of house song titled simply ‘Man X Woman’. This the first release off of his upcoming EP ‘Form’ and if the rest of the songs are anything like this one, this might be the next big baby-making EP. Mar is not just the producer behind this, he is also the writer and the vocalist and can this man sing. With a feel similar to Disclosure, Mar keeps the song lighthearted with his upbeat electronic melodies while slowing it down with his vocals, even breaking those into some deep base voices. This is everything a good man x woman should be, all music, hot, heavy, and yet innocent.

[Nu-Disco/Synth-Pop] The Golden Pony ft. Suntalk- Bonfire

The Golden Pony
Bonfire Feat. Suntalk

It’s been a little while since we checked in with one of our favorite tastemaking Deep Disco outfits, The Golden Pony, and in between their time hustling as some of NYC’s most influential electronic promoters, they’ve managed to issue a follow up to their debut original “Tiny Purple Fishes” with a house meets disco groover “Bonfire”. Featuring another NYC band Suntalk on vocals, “Bonfire” beautifully flits between the electronic indie dance output of camps like Future Classic and 4AD and straightforward nu-disko and house music structures. While TGP has made their name mostly by reaching into the remix cookie jar, their original tunes have been the hook which keeps us ninjas coming back for more. “Bonfire” paces itself briefly, starting off slow and steady, before bouncing in cheeky vocals and an appropriately addictive, simple bass line. This one pulled from us an immediate smile, and music which exhibits this quality has always been some of our favorite. Grab the free download here in exchange for a ‘heart’ on Hype Machine.
