Drake is back at it again with another anthem-esque track that might surpass the already enormous popularity of his most recent release, “Started From The Bottom.” Not only does Boi-1da cultivate a manic, heavy instrumental, but Drizzy truly goes in with some lines sure to be repeated, in chanting fashion, by this ninja over the weekend. Enjoy “5AM in Toronto” and grab a free download of this slap below. Nothing Was The Same drops later this year.
5AM in Toronto
For this weeks Mix Dojo, we’re starting off with RL Grime‘s most recent mix for Diplo and Freinds on BBC Radio 1. Starting off with a massive unreleased tune from What So Not, and featuring everything from Trap to Hip-Hop and even a filthy Drum N Bass remix of “Original Don”. Next up is Zeds Dead Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1, and it’s by far the best one this year. The Canadian dubstep gods drop about 10 unreleased ZD tunes, along with some other brain scrambling tracks. Yellow Claw‘s newest mixtape titled simply, “#5″ is pure gold, if you love Trap don’t miss this one. Seven Lions did this mix for OWSLA, and they released for free, melodic dubstep at it’s absolute finest. Make sure not to miss the mixes from: Justice, Avicii, TORRO TORRO, and the throwback from Rustie. Cheers.

MYSTICAL WONDER MIX
Ah March, can you smell spring just around the corner? For many people, March is affiliated with a certain Madness, but for us music lovers here at TMN we like to put a little spin on that Madness. So, we would like to dub this month, March Music Madness, that’s right, we are triple M-ing this month. For such a large month, we of course wanted to bring in a massive artist and who better than one who has 12 years behind the decks, who has collaborated with the likes of Wolfgang Gartner, Morgan Page and Mowgli, an artist who has been a double Beatport #1 act and remixer?
Welcome to your month Mr Bass Kleph. Australian born Stu Tyson, as he’s known offstage and to his mother, started off at the early age of 15 as a drummer for a rock band called Loki, touring around the land down under and New Zealand. It was at these grungy rock venues that BK first discovered what it takes to make a crowd dance; a catchy rhythm with an irresistible hook. Once BK realized this was a passion he wanted to pursue, he decided to leave the rock world behind and focus on the music form he knew could make the world dance; he turned all his focus to DJing. Fast forward twelve years later and here we are today with a master of his trade who has continued to develop his skills over the years and continues to bring everyone to the dance floor. Besides collaborating with some of the top names in electronic and dubstep music today, BK also has his own music labels Vacation and Exit Row and hosts Klephtomania, his new iTunes postcast series. BK knows just how to throw his beats around to make your heart skip, he knows just when to let the bass wobble to get you to put your hands higher, and he knows just when to release his energetic melody to make you close your eyes and dance like it is the last thing you will ever do.
Bring on the Madness of March and throw a shit ton of Music in there, Bass Kleph style please.

There’s no doubt that over the past 12 years, Shiny Toy Guns have made their impact on the blogosphere. The band is most known for their 80′s influenced electro pop with tracks like “Major Tom”, “Le Disko” and “You Are the One.” But, we also have to take a long hard look at some of the dance floor bangers that have come via remixes as well. Some of EDM’s finest has taken on STG, and why not? It’s the perfect start to something filthy.

Le Disko (Boys Noize)
After releasing “Weird Shapes” not too long ago, Florida indie rockers Surfer Blood are back with another new fuzzy-pop tune called “Demon Dance”. Wailing vocals meet up with equally wailing guitar-driven melodies for a track that’ll make you remember just why you might’ve fallen in love with the band’s debut Astro Coast and subsequent EP Tarot Classics. You may detect some Weezer in there, too, which is never, ever a bad thing.
“Weird Shapes” and “Demon Dance” will appear on Surfer Blood’s forthcoming album, Pythons, due out June 11th.
