The entire Flow-Fi fam consists of a roster filled with incredible talent. Here we have a Miguel bootleg by Manchester producer EphRem. The original is a babymaking masterpiece, yet EphRem cleverly turned it into a soulful electronic mix. The speed of the melody is increased and the pitch is raised, creating these chipmunk-like vocals that flow really well with the overall chillwave synths in the background.
It’s quite amusing how easy this seems, yet how difficult it actually is to alter little things of an original song to create a bootleg. EphRem surely does this Miguel song justice in just three minutes. Go give it a listen and find yourself into the welcoming arms of the Flow-Fi fam.
Orphan's Son (Ekali Remix)
What else is there to be said about Ekali? The dude has quickly become not just a TMN favorite, but a force to be reckoned with in the bass music scene. With only eight tracks under his belt, he’s already racked up nearly 10,000 Soundcloud followers and that number will only continue to grow as industry tastemakers and leading producers keep taking notice. His latest effort is as dark and sinister as it is gorgeous. Eli Muro makes his Ninja debut as Ekali turns “Orphan’s Son” into a broody banger that I think anyone with a pulse can and will enjoy.
Full Crate x Mar
Man X Woman (JAWZ Version)
As we begin to sift through the last few weeks of music, we came across a Full Crate & Mar’s remix of “Man x Woman” from Aussie producer, JAWZ; to say this song is like floating in the clouds is an understatement. Right from the start we are introduced with a harmonious harp melody that builds into a breakdown full of chill, ambient R&B and trap elements that collectively bring forth a new refreshing sound to help sooth the soul. JAWZ is starting to take those future Aussie elements and weave them together to form these eclectic masterpieces that speak to every ear that listens in full. As always, grab your free download and get your feel on the JAWZ way.
The Friday feels are certainly alive and real with this one. Returning with his first single in over a month, Dolphin Tears has decided to bless us with yet another eccentric, R&B-infused jersey club anthem. This time drawing inspiration from T-Pain‘s “Buy U A Drank,” delivers quite the banger, packed with plenty of synths, pulsating percussion, video game samples, bed squeaks and of course his signature dolphin calls. We won’t judge you if you suddenly feel an uncontrollable urge to get up out of your seat and shake your tailfeather (is that a dated term now?), because that’s exactly what we did. Do you know how hard it is to type while dancing? Why not press play on this gem and try it out for yourself?

Shudder (Twinztrack Remix)
If you haven’t realized it yet, we here at TMN have been infatuated with Basecamp‘s “Shudder” from the very first moment it first blessed our ears early last month. Not only have we found ourselves zoning out to the original on a regular basis, but the countless remixes that have followed have captured our constant attention as well. Now French electronic duo Twinztrack have decided to throw their hats in the ring, providing us with yet another fascinating remix. This latest rendition finds the hypnotic vocals from the original embedded in a swirling palette of engrossing synths and skittering percussion that help add a playfully melodic touch to the tune. Remember that zoning out sensation we mentioned earlier? Yeah, try resisting it from the moment you press play. We promise it’s not possible. This is a song that will most definitely captivate you.
There’s no word on whether this will be available for download or purchase in the near future, but we won’t blame you for immediately wanting a copy for yourself.
Bass in your face. Those are the words that instantly sprang to mind as we turned our speakers up and this glorious piece of work took full control of our bodies. That might sound like a strange phenomenon at first, but trust us, once you press play your booty will twerk in new ways you previously thought unimaginable. Though we’re used to somewhat more reserved efforts from Losco, the Belgian quartet decided to abandon all inhibitions and completely let loose on their new single, “Drop.” With a simple title that reads as both a description of the track and an instruction manual, it’s clear that this new anthem is poised to be a fixture in the festival scene for months to come. Though our mothers warned us against accepting free candy from strangers, we think it’s ok to ignore their advice this one time.
Break Up To Make Up (WYLN Edit)
More often than not, us ninjas tend to have a general understanding of how to classify songs based on their style, sound, as well as our knowledge behind each genre – after all, we are tastemakers so we should know what goes where! However, sometimes we face a challenge with certain songs in which it can get a bit difficult placing them exactly where they belong. That’s what happened to us when we came across this adorable edit of Jeremih’s “Break Up To Make Up”. We already go bananas over the original track as is, but WYLN just took this song to an entirely new level of cute. We know…most producers probably don’t want to have their music be described as “cute”, but hey, as a ninjette with a heart, this edit hits a girl straight in her soft spot every single time. With all the intricate drum patterns, the fluffy synthesized melodies, and Jeremih’s adorable young voice layered on top of this lovely production, WYLN gives this track a solid re-work that will entice all who listen. So while you get ready to break up to make up, make sure to grab your free download while in the mean time – you’ll want this track for later.
