Back when Arthur Ashin, aka Autre Ne Veut, released the excellent electronic-R&B track “Counting” in November, we vowed to keep an eye on the New York musician. Now, we are here to report that his debut LP, Anxiety, is available for your total streaming pleasure (it officially drops February 26th on Mexican Summer/Software). Considering we’ve been waiting weeks and weeks for this, please excuse us while we find a dark, lonely corner and put this on loop.
Stream Autre Ne Veut’s Anxiety here via Pitchfork.
Zeds Dead & Omar Linx, the true pioneers of letting hip-hop and heavy electronic music exist so organically together, gave away their stems on Beatport last year to spark a remix contest. The result was simply a massive success with Butch Clancy, Michael White and Clark Kent submitting their well grounded contributions. We can’t confirm this is a direct result of the contest, but today Congorock unleashed their very own throbbing remix of ‘Cowboy’.
Always with some African-drum influence, the emerging star of the world’s biggest dance floor and producer of the catchiest conceptions (most memorable for ‘Babylon’ and Swedish House Mafia’s ‘One’ remix) infuses his own style and trumps the original with a refreshing take.

Continuing the epic motto of summertime all the time, Viceroy is back for another warm jam. “This Is How We Do It” was the 1995 number-one hit single by American R&B singer Montell Jordan. It originally featured Jordan singing over an enhanced sample of Slick Rick’s “Children’s Story” and now San Francisco producer and TMN favorite Viceroy brings an ample amount of nostalgia with a funk infused remix. Bright as the sunlight reflecting off the water drops from the skin after a refreshing dip in the pool, Viceroy shows how he does it, every time, in summertime.

Indie pop trio Little Daylight — formerly known for their outstanding remixes of Passion Pit, Temper Trap and Freelances Whales — recently unleashed their now-successful original single “Overdose”. But just as the three-piece paid homage to the aforementioned bands with their reworks, Australian-born duo Twice As Nice are here to do the same. The bright, rushing synths and completely contagious energy make this remix a real pleaser, night or day. Tune in below.

It woud be an understatement to say that Theophilus London is one of the more experimental and eclectic up and coming artists. With a unique flow, he seems to have the distinct ability to flow well over a wide range of beats. From trap to hip-hop to alternative rock, he is not afraid to reach outside the proverbial box of his “genre” and deliver some dope new music. On the 3rd week of dropping new material, the Brooklyn native teams up with pro-snowboarder Trouble Andrew on the track “Snow Angel”. This trippy and laid-back tune comes courtesy of trap producer Uzi and some Radiohead samples. Not sure if this track is an endorsement/praising of the snowboarder but it is still pretty interesting. Be sure to check out the free single below.

Sure, the best things in life are often free but sometimes we have to pay a little something, something in order to make things a little better. We try to give you an abundance of free music here on the indie dojo playlists, but sometimes we have to contribute back to the indies by posting a non-downloadable Soundcloud link. So if you like it, go ahead and buy it. Same goes for the artists that are kind enough to share a free download or 2. Visit their facebook page, follow them on twitter, do whatever the social media revolution calls for. Ninjas helping ninjas. It sure is a beautiful thing.
