[Sexy] Shlohmo & Jeremih – No More

No More

Eclectic, lo-fi producer Shlohmo and R&B crooner Jeremih have a unique chemistry that has already brought us some of the most impressive new age slow jams with “F U all the Time” and “Bo Peep”. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, the duo team up once again for a glitchy, more solemn sounding cut full of longing and sexual tension. Even with its darker tone, “No More” makes for a great V-Day anthem suitable for reproductive activities, but also perfect for anyone feeling a streak of loneliness. Peep above and head over to NPR Music for a free download.

[TMN Video Premiere] Angela Ricci – Lazy Love

Lazy Love

Well, there is a certain holiday this Friday that has to do with lots of, well, love.

So what better then to premiere a video that embraces all that is love or more, the simplicity of a lazy love between two people?
Today we have the pleasure of premiering Miss Angela Ricci’s video for her song ‘Lazy Love’. A beautiful slow paced song with a whimsical in-love feeling throughout the whole piece, the video balances out the song quite nicely. Filmed in all black and white, the visuals portray the ballad’s nostalgic essence where Ricci promenades through the cobbled streets in an Italian city. A very Hepburn-like feel, this video tasks listeners back to the basics when it comes to love: what the girl is thinking, what the guy is thinking, what they do when they are apart and when they are together. So wherever you are this Friday, and everyday after, may you always feel a bit of this kind of lazy love with that special someone.

Made In Black America Ft. Ab-Soul

In the lead-up to his upcoming album, Nobody’s Smiling, Common seems as hungry as ever, determined to prove that he’s still one of the most vicious lyricists in the game. Bridging the generational gap with his latest effort, the Chitown spitter goes toe-to-toe with the young cat, Ab-Soul, who’s more than capable of holding his own with the rap legend. “Made In Black America” is a gritty, streetwise production that features both emcees reflecting on their experiences growing up in the streets, while still weaving in some indelible punchlines bursting with bravado. Listen to the track above, and keep on the lookout for more from Com and No I.D. when the album drops later this year.

[House] Armand Van Helden & Hervé – Power Of Bass

AVH
Armand Van Helden & Hervé
'Power Of Bass'

It may be the nostalgic house purist in me, but every single time a new track from Armand Van Helden is unveiled, it inspires visions of the early NYC house scene and just how much the man had to do with it. On Van Helden’s latest tune “Power of Bass”, a collaboration with Cheap Thrills label boss Hervé, it is apparent that the Grammy nominated producer hasn’t slowed down in the slightest, especially if you’ve followed he and A-Trak’s Duck Sauce project. “Power of Bass”, is a monster of a future house tune, kicking off almost immediately with a throwback synth line that only artists in the genre with as much experience as these two could put over; but also draws from their current contemporary takes on four-four dance rhythms. Carefully layed swells and high energy hi-hats fuel its heart, and when they’re paired with such a choice bassline, as a listener there is no other choice but to start twerking your proverbial stuff. The colossal club track is forthcoming from the almighty Ministry of Sound Recordings out of the U.K., but for now we’re happy to have you ninjas listen to it here. Check out Armand Van Helden and Hervé’s joint jam “Power of Bass” above.

The Workout Playlist: Ninja in Training +20 Songs [Vol. 1] February 2014

workout playlist songs 2014 music ninja
Introducing: The Workout Playlist. Songs to make you reach Ninja levels gains.

Something dawned on us the other day when we were sitting through another grueling WOD at Crossfit South Denver. Yes, the intense regiment set out by whatever twisted mind in charge of writing these workouts is a sick person, but there’s one other thing that’s been apparent in the past year of doing Crossfit: we all could use a badass playlist to get us going.

After speaking to a few other friends who attend different boxes across the Denver metro area, and a few girls who say they love our site for workout music, it happened. We realized that we needed to use our knowledge of well crafted mashups and remixes to put together something that could be enjoyed by the most intense avid music listener, as well as some folks who could care less what’s charting on the music blogosphere.

So, we sat down and hashed it out. What would the parameters be? How often would we post these? How long would they be? Here’s what we decided:

– Tracks need to be popular EDM OR be a popular song that’s been turned into EDM
– They need to be upbeat enough to keep even the craziest of Crossfitter’s going through their WOD
– They need to be current late 2013 and 2014, but can also include some classics over the past year
– This playlist should be released once a month.
– Not everything needs to be a free download, but it needs to rock for a solid hour and half (because if you’re working out longer than that, you don’t need our help).

With that being said, here it is. This is our very first The Workout Playlist: Ninja in Training . Throw in your buds, and get a good sweat going. Because after all, it’s almost festie season.

[Electro Soul] Jungle – Lucky I Got What I Want

Jungle
Lucky I Got What I Want

It’s better late than never. Truer words could be said as we listen to this glorious electro soul tune from Jungle. This crafty duo released “Lucky I Got What I Want” four months ago, and we somehow missed it. After listening to the layered atmospheric elements, draped over a luscious, repetitious beat, we were instantly pissed we went four months without hearing this.

So, we’re sorry that we let you down, but hopefully we redeemed ourselves after posting this delightfully soulful tune.
