Come With Me
One of the great finds of the day belongs to Aten Rays, a New York-based producer who specializes in being exploratory with new electronic elements and samples.
The tune starts off with this creepy humming chant, which is later used as a sample throughout the song. When the beat comes in, it helps create this abrupt house environment with the minimalist beat. The beat is well thought out and put together, and just when you think it’s about to get more complex, the breakdown part comes in with the reoccurring voice chant sample. This tune has an overall mystical and mysterious feel to it, resembling some of the work by Mr. Carmack. Go give it a listen and see if you can dig it!
Anjunadeep 06 Mini-Mix
There’s no doubt in anyone’s minds: deep is in. While you may have just chuckled at the sophomoric style humor references that could be associated with the previously mentioned statement, you can’t deny that Deep House, Tech House, and Indie House are making more than a splash in the industry, commanding the respect of anyone who has a set of ears, two legs, and the will to dance.
The legendary Anjunabeats label has been releasing deep, delectable treats for quite some time, but this latest collection seems to have really made a lasting impression in the EDM community. With a variation of underground deep house tunes, this mix is now sitting on the iTunes Dance Album Chart above Armin Van Buuren’s new comp, deadmau5, Dash Berlin, Martin Garrix, and all the other traditional mainstream electronic music that typically dominates this category.
It’s an exciting time to be a dance music fan, as we’re witnessing the most definitive shift in recent memory. So, press play on this gem and sit back. It’s a calming, yet energetic journey of the deeper variety. It’s onee that could lead you to a chill night at home, or a wild night out.
Only time will tell.
Girlfriends (Linier Bootleg)
Better grab your best party outfit, your favorite bottle of booze, and call up a group of your closest friends because we just found the perfect tune to make you go boom bop, boom boom boom ta bop. Think we’re over exaggerating? Think again ninjas because Linier just took us to House heaven with their latest bootleg of Joel Compass’ “Girlfriends”. Linier sets this song on fire with a blast of sensational piano riffs, a sexy bassline, and a bitchin’ breakdown that has us breakin’ a sweat. The producing duo have raised the bar for House producers all around and this bootleg is evident that they know what the hell they’re doing. While we get down with our bad selves, we highly recommend you get your flame started by simply pressing play because we can 100% guarantee you’ll be bobbin’ your head to this highly addictive beat.
Adore You (Polar Youth refix)
We aren’t sure if posting a Miley Cyrus re-work is a good representation of our taste in music over here at TMN, however, we must point out that some kids sure do know how to flip her songs into something that we can actually enjoy for once. 19-year-old Belgium producer, Polar Youth, gave Miley’s “Adore You” a much needed chill trap tune-up in which she crafts this song into something truly, truly beautiful. With its subtle, tropical ambiance and a heavy 808 to chill us to the bone, Polar Youth flawlessly creates the perfect production to emphasize Miley’s lyrics on a much deeper value. Who would have thought we would be saying these types of things about Miley and her unique behaviors? Lucky for her, it took some girl power to give this song a certain desirability for all of us to enjoy. While Polar Youth continues taking over this genre, get your free download and adore it until you find yourself in a bear suit taking selfies in the bathroom (we really don’t think that will happen, so don’t worry).
Vague (Original Mix)
You know when you find those kind of songs that make you literally stop everything you are doing just so you can boogie like you’re stuck in a hot, smelly, sweaty club? Those are the kind of songs that really get our weekends started off on a wicked note. Hailing all the way from the big apple, AKA New York City, are Nick van Tiel and Skyler Gross who collectively form Housing Corp. These two are undeniably two of the most profound producers we’ve come across in the House side of music. Just recently Housing Corp released a new original, “Vague” and let us tell you, this song is anything but what its title says. Jam packed with wanky basslines, an infectious vocal sample, and a hard-hitting breakdown that will guarantee make you want to move your body in all sorts of ways. As always, we try to find you those free tunes to rock out to whenever you please, and it looks like you’re in luck because “Vague” is available for free! Get your groove on, ninjas, and stay classy.
Closer (SAVAT RMX)
All I wanna get is, a little bit closer…
It’s always so nice to stumble upon the hidden gems of Soundcloud that make you truly find yourself in a pristine state of relaxation. A midst the over saturation of big room bangers, progressive house anthems, and every other beat known to man, there exists an entirely new side of music that takes a lot of digging to find. Today we did just that. If you’re a fan of Tegan and Sara and recognize this sample right off the bat, then you are going to fall into reverberated synth love in this majestic SAVAT remix of Stillways sample based original, “Closer”. From start to finish, SAVAT takes us one step closer to finding that certain kind of peace we all crave to have. While guiding us towards that internal bliss, SAVAT introduces us to a wide array of sounds and techniques that are commonly used by those from down under (referencing Australia). This synth-based piece revives our souls and wakes us up with a refreshing blast of chill wave vibes. This tune is perfect for driving down the coast or staying in on a Friday night, so get your free download today and enjoy these quality beats whenever you please.
If you’ve been paying any attention to our Sunday Night Soul series, then you’ll know that Blackbear has quickly become a bit of a staple on this site. Churning out quality material music on a consistent basis, the LA native has a knack for creating music that’s incredibly relatable and strikes a cord in all the right places. His latest single, a collaboration with production duo 4e, finds the crooner detailing what it feels like to find himself waiting on the “Sidelines.” While you may be wondering exactly what that means at first, the experience is one that should be familiar to most of us. Finding himself embroiled in a relationship that’s currently stranded in ambiguous territory, the frustrated Blackbear goes so far as to say “If I can’t love you, don’t want nobody else to.” Though that may sound a little selfish, it’s probably a sentiment that we’ve all shared at one point or another.
There’s no word on whether Blackbear has any plans for an upcoming project, but the single should be available on iTunes later today. In the meantime hit the play button above and keep the song on repeat until you can snag a copy for yourself.
