Joy

The combined efforts of German duo Fabich & Ferdinand Weber have already produced some amazing things in the early part of 2014, and they’re stamping their claim on the rest of the year by taking this partnership to the next level. We all know a relationship isn’t sealed until it’s Facebook official, and their latest release comes with the news of a brand new page combining this exciting artist package into one. It’s a joyous occasion for sure, and they’re celebrating this union by sharing this happiness in the form of another solid deep house original. It’s the uplifting experience we’ve quickly grown fond of from this talented pair, with a bright rhythmic groove that makes this as perfect for dancefloors as it is just flowing from your headphones in a solitary chill session. Look for this one to get a good rinse in sets across the upcoming summer season, and make sure you’re keeping up with all the latest from these two names that will only get bigger this year.

[Hip-Hop] Jay Electronica & Jay Z – We Made It (Freestyle)

jay-z-and-jay-electronica
JAY Z x JAY ELECTRONICA
We Made It

I know we probably say this every time we hear new music from Jay Electronica, but in the rare glimpses we do get every year, we begin to remember just how gifted of an emcee he really is. Our latest refresher comes in the form of a freestyle over Soulja Boy and Drake‘s “We Made It,” alongside Roc Nation boss Jay Z. While Jay Elec provides us with an update on the state of his career (even apologizing to his fans for constantly keeping them waiting), Hov delivers a ferocious verse of his own, taking more than a few not-so subtle shots along the way. We don’t want to get too ahead of ourselves, but with this being his second release in just a week (a pretty significant accomplishment for him), we’re hoping this means even more material from Jay Electronica is on the way.

[NEW] Miguel – Bennie And The Jets (Feat. Wale) (Elton John Cover)

miguelxterry8
Miguel feat. Wale
Bennie and the Jets

In order to celebrate the anniversary of his landmark album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, music legend Elton John is preparing to release a deluxe edition of the timeless project over 40 years later. Along with a 100-page hardcover book, a CD of live performances, and a DVD of the 1973 film Elton John and Bernie Taupin Say Goodbye to Norma Jean and Other Things, fans can also expect the repackaging to include a tribute CD that features nine other accomplished artists tasked with providing a modern take on a few of the album’s classics.

The first of these commissioned covers comes from the unlikely duo of Miguel and Wale, who take more than a few liberties with their revision of “Bennie And The Jets.” While remnants of the original remain, Miguel adds his own flair to the redesign, complete with a roaring backbeat, potent guitar riffs, and peerless falsetto that stay true to the contemporary crooner’s typical style. Wale meanwhile, chips in with a smooth verse of his own (one that Chance The Rapper would be very proud of) that really helps provide this version of the single with its own identity.

Set for release next Tuesday, March 25th, the record will also include covers from Fall Out Boy, Ed SheeranEmeli Sandé and more. Pre-orders can be found here.

Tchami – Untrue [TMN EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE]

Tchami
Untrue (Extended Mix)[Available April 4]

Within the annals of music history, Parisians have always seemed to loom near the forefront of the next big sounds, especially within the confines of electronic music, which in turn has always made us a bit excited when we latch on to new artists from the city of love. Tchami has been the latest French producer to really steal a piece of our heart through releasing some of the choicest cuts of house, deep-house and future thus far in 2014 and his latest single “Untrue” -which officially sees the light of day on April 4th through the always on point Spinnin camp- follows that established blueprint of bouncy, emotive but subdued dance instrumentation. Every one of Tchami’s compressed kicks or muted bass stabs serves a necessary purpose in the construction of “Untrue”, which effortlessly climbs to it first build before delving into a rousing lead synth playing in harmony with such an infectious, clubby bassline. We absolutely couldn’t seem to pull this melodic house anthem out of our heads after one listen, and we’re thrilled to put our ‘TMN Premiere’ stamp on this one. Be on the lookout for more inviting tunes from Tchami, and if you were wanting to stumble a little further down the rabbit hole with the mysterious producer, check out his official Soundcloud here which is rife with free downloads.

[Indie Pop] Lykke Li – No Rest for the Wicked

Lykke Li
No Rest For The Wicked

“… I, I follow, I follow you, deep sea baby, I follow you…”

Sound familiar? With the innumerable remixes and covers for “I Follow Rivers” these past few years, it’s hard to remember that it’s been a long 36 months since we were enthralled by a honey of an artist, Lykke Li. The 28 year old Swedish beauty and singer introduced the first piece of her three-part work in 2008 with Youth Novels, followed by her second album, Wounded Rhymes back in 2011. She now returns with the new-fangled single, “No Rest for the Wicked” off her upcoming third studio album, I Never Learn. The track induces a deep cinematic vibe, leaving us to wonder and yearn for the story she will croon to conclude her trilogy, which began with her first two albums nearly six years ago.

We’ll learn the ending to her tale when I Never Learn drops in North America this coming May 6th. Meanwhile, we can piece together 2 of the 9 fragments.

Watch the release of the painstakingly exquisite video, “Love Me Like I’m Not Made of Stone”, and follow up with the lead single “No Rest for the Wicked.”

Rebecca and Fiona Interview [TMN EXCLUSIVE]

avatars-000047195261-o3mpe9-original

There was a time where “Turn it Down” played in just about every car, house and club in the world. Obviously this Swedish duo experienced tremendous success with their collab with Kaskade, but they’ve also made a name for themselves with plenty of other songs over the past few years.

Rebecca and Fiona recently came to the Mile High City to play at the legendary Beta Nightclub. Before their set, we stole a quick 20 minutes to talk to them. Check out what they had to say about growing up in musical households, opening for Robyn, and how they find their new music.

TMN: Hello ladies. Thank you so much for sitting down with us tonight. Let’s start off by talking about about being in Denver playing at Beta Nightclub. Are you guys excited to play for this crowd?

R: Really excited! We’ve never been to Denver before, so we’re excited.

F: We’ve heard a lot of great stuff about the club (Beta). We’ve been wanting to go here for a long time.

TMN: Have you been through Colorado before?

F: I’ve been here because I have relatives here, but it was a long time ago.

TMN: Let’s talk about the beginnings. You two met in the mid 2000s, and then started making music in 2010. How did you guys come to this decision?

R: Yeah, exactly

F: It came kind of naturally. We knew we wanted to work together and we were really into finding new music. We just wanted to be able to make money off of doing something together.

R: Something that was fun!

TMN: Let’s go even further back. What are your musical roots? Were you both in piano lessons as little girls? Did your passion for music come as a teenager?

R: My father is a classical pianist, so I grew up with a lot of classical ways of learning music. I was in a high level choir school, then I went to music school, but I really didn’t enjoy the classical ways of learning music. I just wanted to make music from my own creativity, not from the rules of making music. So, I kind of took a stand from that when I graduated. Then we met (Fiona) and she grew up with a father that’s really into producing. He actually brought the synthesizer into Sweden to sell to Swedish musicians. She grew up with a synth-pop producer Dad and I had the classical background.

F: In Sweden you get to study music for free, as well. So, both of us got to try out the flute, the piano, the violin…
