Flood

The guitar driven indie pop project COOPER is the newest project from Kate Cooper, and it’s a real gem. The latest tune from this Australian indie rocker features an anthemic feel that calls on associations of Tegan and Sarah (whose producer is working on the project) and folk rock artists such as Mumford and Sons and The Lumineers.

“Flood” is a foot-stomping journey that beckons you to grab a guitar and play along with it. Its infectious in its drum-centric nature, making you press play again and again.

Four Tet x Grimes
Human Once Again

As a way to celebrate 100K followers, experimental producer Four Tet has sneakily let loose a slew of free remixes and original tracks via his Twitter. Among the fifteen previously unreleased tracks, this downright heavenly reimagination of Grimes’s “Skin” may be our favorite. The ethereally haunting vocals of Grimes, the latest addition to Jay-Z‘s Roc Nation, meld perfectly with Four Tet’s production style and make for a trance-enducing feel.

[Nu-Disco/House] Peaches – Fuck The Pain Away (The Golden Pony Remix)

Peaches
Fuck The Pain Away (The Golden Pony Remix)

After penning their first original last month, our favorite NYC disco tastemakers The Golden Pony return to the pages of TMN with a slightly grimier than normal remix of every slurry drunken white girl’s favorite sing-along, Peaches’ “Fuck The Pain Away”. TGP flirts a little more closely with the deeper, indie dance spectrum this time around, employing a very pronounced kick-clap pattern and a pitched down Peaches vocal track which besides its inflection is kept pretty intact. The duo’s synth line also plays in symbiotic harmony to the addictive albeit general vulgarity of the classic vocal track, and who can resist belting out that time-honored, complex lyric loop when it’s played out? As with the majority of The Golden Pony tunes, you can cop this one as a free download above.

[Synth-Pop] St. Lucia – All Eyes On You (Goldroom Remix)

St. Lucia
All Eyes On You (Goldroom Remix)

The latest from Los Angeles’ Goldroom project is a shimmery retooling of St. Lucia‘s “All Eyes On You”, which was as an original, a vital piece of his debut LP When the Night. As  Josh Legg’s secluded bedroom-disco recording project has evolved into a complete live setup which can boast national and international tours, we’ve been privy to some pretty amazing originals and remixes along the way. September’s Embrace EP, their first in two years, simply put a smile on our faces and marked their place near the top of that nu-disco/pop/chill movement. Goldroom’s lush electronic execution which has seen the So-Cal troupe take on remix duties for the likes of Charli XCX and The Knocks in 2013, is well represented in this union with the New York producer, evoking an urge to make you move throughout. Some poppy synths have mingled into the rework, but heavy and sexy as ever is the saxophone breakdown. Trust us when we say this remix is absolutely worth 5 minutes of your time today.

[Event Preview] Decadence – Denver 12/30 & 12/31

unnamed

Say what? Yep. You read the title correctly. This year Decadence is flexing its EDM muscle to create a dominating two night event here in the Mile High City. Last year’s event was nothing short of extraordinary, boasting a line up that shook down the Denver Convention Center, creating a dance induced welcoming of 2013.

This year, Global Dance has stepped their game up and added a second night of glowing, end of the year indulgences, adding in the best talent in the electronic dance music scene. After looking at this line up, you’re going to want to take an extra day off in order to recover from what’s about to go down.

In true Colorado fashion, the locals have their time in the limelight. Artists that us 5280’ers are familiar with are once again heading up to the decks to help us welcome in the new year. Dragon and Jontron, Ecotek, Triad Dragons, Bass Physics and other local acts will be coupled with one huge name that has their roots planted firmly in Colorado. That’s right. Pretty Lights will be joining the festivities and playing on the second night of this festival.

While a lot of folks would be happy with just that, the list doesn’t stop there. Tiesto, Dada Life, Bassnectar, Datsik, Nervo, TJR, Above and Beyond, Paul Basic, Supervision, 12th Planet are some of the highly acclaimed acts you’ll be seeing throughout this epic two-day adventure.

With a lineup like this, coupled with Global Dance Music’s ability to throw a kick ass party, you should probably just head over and pick up your tickets now. While you’re making your purchase, feel free to enjoy our Decadance Playlist below.

Jamie N Commons + X Ambassadors – Jungle [TMN PREMIERE]

unnamed
Jungle (from the film Welcome To Yesterday)
Jamie N Commons + X Ambassadors

We love seeing a good collaboration over here at TMN. There’s something about bringing together two different styles, intertwining them into a culmination of powerful music. Today we have just that, in a supercharged premiere of Jamie N Commons and X Ambassadors new tune, “Jungle.” Releasing on KIDinaKORNER records, this electrifying tune can also be heard in the trailer for the upcoming motion picture Welcome to Yesterday.

This 90 second clip should provide ample reasons for you to get excited about this release, and the soundtrack that it’s appearing on. Delightfully screeching guitars pave way for visions of a dusty Louisiana bar, creating a super charged southern rock sound. Jamie N Common’s voice is as gritty and brawny as ever, exuding a brilliant, in-your-face attitude that simply can’t be avoided. Coupled with the flexing of X Ambassadors percussion ascendancy, we’re understandably licking our chops to hear more.

Take a brief moment to check out the trailer for this Michael Bay directed movie, and when you’re done, head over to iTunes and pick this track up.
