HOLYCHILD
Every Time I Fall

If you’re in Austin this week for SXSW, be sure to catch one of HOLYCHILD’s sets while you’re there.

The brainchild of Liz Nistico and Louie Diller, this rising synth-pop duo from Los Angeles released their debut EP ‘Mindspeak’ just a few short weeks ago. After meeting at George Washington University in 2011, the pair began writing and recording together and eventually found a home with Glassnote Records in early 2014.

With a sound full of stylish electro-pop, reminiscent of bands like Phantogram and label-mates CHVRCHES, their latest track “Every Time I Fall” will have you “falling” for this band over and over again. Filled with bursting waves of jaunty synth and echoing vocals, “Every Time I Fall” is a lovable, dance-friendly tune aimed to inspire on all levels of the pop music spectrum.

[Electro House] Indiana – Solo Dancing (Chris Lake Remix)

Solo Dancing (Chris Lake Remix)

Having just seen Chris Lake a month ago at Beta Nightclub, we were admittedly eager to see this tune pop into our radar. While our headphones won’t do justice in comparison to those glorious Funktion Ones, we’re happy to have our mitts on this Londoner’s take on “Solo Dancing”

The original song came out about a month ago, and has already racked up 160,000 plays on Soundcloud. The vocals from Nottingham based singer/songrwiter Indiana are subdued, effortlessly gliding over a simplistic beat. Coupled only with intermittent synthesizers, the main focus is on the lyrics, which paved the way for this track to find a more mainstream EDM interpretation.

Who better to take this on then one of our favorites in the game, Chris Lake. This often hilarious Producer/DJ has taken what was originally an attractive, underground sound, and primed it for the radio. By coupling in some large four to the floor beats and some electro house synths, this remix will be appreciated by dance clubs and festivals all over the world.

[Deep-House] Bimbo Jones & Beverly Knight – I Found Out (Sebastian Carter Remix)

I Found Out (Sebastian Carter Remix)

Sebastian Carter‘s remixes have been stealing our ears with each and every passing release. After authoring up an excellent remix for Local Natives a few weeks ago, the Swiss melodic house wunderkind returns to TMN with a deep and lovely take on production duo Bimbo Jones’ collaboration with ‘Queen of British Soul’ Beverly Knight  “I Found Out”. Rather than play within the often formulaic confines of house music structure, Carter renounces the DJ friendly 4/4 kick-drum intro on his latest offering, instead sculpting its base off of an airy synth line backed by a muted piano stab which takes its listener by hand directly to the first bridge. Beverly Knight’s vocal gets tempered down to mostly high reaching incantations and the hypnotic and sexy hook of “I Found Out” which loops beautifully amongst quite the dancey groove. Ultimately though, our single favorite moments comes after Sebastian Carter’s wonderfully crafted build drops into a classic U.K. house breakdown, and by then we were so consumed in our dance moves anyways, it was simply the icing on a very complex electronic cake. Sebastian Carter’s remix for “I Found Out” can be purchased on Beatport through Radikal Records here, but for now why don’t you just stream it above on repeat.

Show Me (Mickey Valen Remix)

Oh shit, ninjas. Go find your Ray Bans and flip flops, because this track has summer written all over it. While that attire might only be appropriate for your climate controlled home, this tune will have you feelin’ warm all over.

Coming via New York based, multi-faceted producer Mickey Valen (also known for his work in NOOSA), “Show Me,” has been dialed up with some sexy, playful guitar riffs, rolling hi-hat hits and a more upbeat tempo. Gone are the Top 40 R & B vibes, and in their place we find the perfect groove for the summer’s first pool party.

When asked about this remix, Valen simply stated:

I’m just trying to make summery, happy tracks

[Chill/Downtempo] KAASI – Lucy Stone

KAASI
Lucy Stone

London based KAASI got us feeling all sultry a bit early this morning with his latest downtempo meets house tune “Lucy Stone”. All of those essential house elements are accounted for; a four-four kick, swelling pads, a bit of a shuffle and even an infectious classic piano line at its core. But, the way KAASI disperses these elements through his minimal brand of downtempo dance is a thing of beauty, as his sonic temperament drizzles its way through completely, leaving behind just a lovely piece of electronic music in “Lucy Stone”. Trust us when we say not to miss this one, and if listening here on TMN isn’t your cup of tea (which would be weird)  grab the free download of “Lucy Stone” here along with some more offerings from KAASI’s eclectic catalog.

[Video] Phoria – Saving Us a Riot

g_about_phoria

There’s something undeniably charming about acoustic music. The simplistic combination of vocals and instruments is one of the oldest forms of music, which is part of what makes it timelessly enjoyable. Brighton’s Phoria have really harnessed in on this age-old tradition, bringing us an video preview of their song “Saving Us a Riot.”

Coming off of their EP, which is due out this Spring, “Saving Us a Riot” offers up a stark contrast to the piano-centric, electronically-rooted hit, “Red.” We realize that this is an acoustic take on the track, leaving us overwhelmingly eager to hear what the recorded version sounds like. Regardless of the intriguing new sound, we’re still left speechless at Trewin Howard’s vocal tone. It’s easily carries us away to distant places, hopelessly clinging onto each word.

If you happen to be in the neighborhood and want to witness these dreamy vocals in person, they’ll be playing at Hoxton B&K with support from former teenage chart topper Amy Studt and Groves.
