Hollow (Les Loups Remix)
Another great find of the day is this Les Loups remix of this Knight One track titled “Hollow”. Les Loups claims this tune to be in the “ocean disco” subgenre, and they cannot describe it more accurately. They are always able to put together French house and disco music, creating funky and catchy tunes all around. This song features oceanic wave sounds in the background, and the funky slappy electric guitar comes in to seal the deal. They can rightfully say that they have established themselves as a French electronic powerhouse after this release.
Make sure to check out Les Loups’ Swords Cry (The Remixes) EP, consisting of a whole bunch of French disco goodness remixing fun and relaxing tunes.
In the subgenre of tropical house, producer Sam Feldt isn’t usually a name that will ring a bell to most people. This recent release of a remix collaborating with Bloombox titled “On Trees and Birds and Fire”, is a tune originally by indie folk group I Am Oak.
This remix is amazing in the sense of how well Sam Feldt manages to turn folk music into this deep house goodness. The tune starts off with these wooden drumsticks samples, then the tropical bell sounds come in to join the mix together with the vocals. They talk about trees and birds so you can call this a country/folk fusion pop song that got turned into a tropical house remix. The idea is simple but genius. It might not have the necessary tropical house elements in the song, but the lyrics and the instrumentals definitely make up for it.
We are really excited to see what Sam Feldt has to offer. Go have a listen and we promise you won’t be disappointed!

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.
