[TMN Premiere] The Naked and Famous – In Rolling Waves (Strange Babes Cover)

NakednFamous

If I say The Naked and Famous, that already is enough to get you excited right? Well of course it is. The wonderful Auckland group are releasing a deluxe version of In Rolling Waves today with pre-orders starting July 17th. In honor of that, N&F is letting you get a little taste of the remixes to come.

Another Auckland group, Strange Babes, covered In Rolling Waves with their own unique sound. A blend of Indie melodies with a hint of rock acoustics, the band makes this song roll along with a wave like feel. With some hippy like chimes that give the song an intoxicating taste, the melody takes us on a wavelength of divine interpretation of this invigorating piece.

Sit back and close your eyes, this is one psychedelic musical ride.

Young and Sick [TMN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW]

YOUNG & SICK
HEARTACHE FETISH

Taking the blogsphere by storm, Young and Sick have quickly made a name for themselves. This NY/LA based RnB outfit amassed close to 500,000 plays on their hit single, “Heartache Fetish” and have had the pleasure of hitting some extremely notable venues since then (ahem, Coachella.)

As we get ready to bring them in for a show in Denver, we wanted to get to know this brand new act a little better. Check out what lead man Nick had to say about his Dad’s old records, Sriracha, and his silky smooth voice.

TMN: We’re talking with Nick from Young and Sick. Thanks for taking a few minutes to speak with us today.

Y&S: Of course.

TMN: First off, we have to admit something. We tried so hard to get to your set at Coachella, but were struggling a little bit from the previous night’s festivities. How did that go for you?

Y&S: I believe it, it was early! But, it went well. It was kind of a different experience on both weekends. The second weekend, on Friday we opened for Foster the People in Vegas at the Cosmopolitan hotel, after which we had to drive through the night to make it for our 8AM load in. It was interesting.

TMN: Sounds pretty rough!

Y&S: It was great though. We had so much fun.

TMN: While we’re sure there were plenty of people like us, they can rest easy as you guys are about to head out on a pretty significant tour. Talk to us about which cities you’re most looking forward to.

Y&S: Actually, I’m very much looking forward to all of them. Not to sound cheesy, but I have not seen enough of the US, seeing as how I’ve only been living here for a little while. I’m interested to explore all the states, and especially some of the small towns in between. I’ve also heard the most amazing things about Chicago, and I think that’s one of the ones that I’m most looking forward to.

TMN: Speaking of your tour spots, we’re honored to be sponsoring your show here in Denver at Lost Lake. Is there anything you’d like to say to our Denver ninjas?

Y&S: You guys are so lucky to live in such a luscious state with so much beautiful forests around you. You should get out and explore!

[Acoustic] 3LAU feat. Bright Lights – How You Love Me

3LAU feat. Bright Lights
How You Love Me (Acoustic Version)

Hailing from Sin City, Justin Blau (3LAU) has made quite an impact on the EDM world over the past few years. We had a chance to speak to this talented young man back in 2012 when he was putting out insane mashups, which were enough to get 3LAU in front of crowds all over the world, including a set at Global Dance Festival hosted at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater.

Since then, we’ve seen an evolution in his artistry. The mashups became less of a focus, and his own production came in the forefront. Showing people that he’s not just good at pairing pop tracks with dirty beats, he’s put out his stunning original “Bright Lights,” as well as plenty of other solid collaborations and remixes to boot.

Today we’re given a deeper understanding  look at what this former TMN Resident Artist is capable of, which comes via a piano and Bright Light’s delightful voice. Justin’s piano work is flawless, showing how much really goes into the music he writes. Check out what he had to say about his inspiration to share this with the world, then get ready to press play again and again.

For me, every musical idea starts on the piano. I wanted to show you all the initial inspiration for How You Love Me, revealing the spark that made the entire song possible. I’m a musician BEFORE I’m a Producer/DJ, and this is the first of many more non-EDM tracks you’ll hear from me!

[Show Preview] Dead Rocks – Zeds Dead @ Red Rocks, Morrison CO 7/3

zeds-dead-dadalife_NEW

I’m going to tell you a story about a magical place located in Colorado. Where the Great Plains meet the Rocky Mountains, there is an amphitheater carved right into the side of mountains thanks to an architect we call Mother Nature. The area was once called the Garden of Angels, and anyone who visits it will understand why, giant red sandstone rocks tower on each side of the stage area making an ideal place for all musical performers. Red Rocks is a concert venue alive with life where people, music, and nature collide to form an ecstasy combination of life.

This Thursday, July 3rd, before the celebrations of the good old US of A, two unbelievably talented gentlemen from Canada are coming to turn Red Rocks upside down for one night and take the rocks to the dark side courtesy of AEG Live. Zeds Dead would like you all to come celebrate Dead Rocks with them as they bring their hard pounding electric and dubstep sounds to Colorado. Renowned for their insane original melodies and electrifying remixes, loved by critics for their creativity, and adored by fans for their heart palpitating shows, ZD is ready to rock the Rocks until the stars shine and the lights play from the front of the amphitheater all the way to the back.

But let’s not forget the other two headliners hailing all the way from Stockholm to add a certain bounce to the Rocks. Maybe Dada Life puts it best when they welcome all listeners to Dada Land: ‘This is Dada Land. Get ready to arrive beautiful and leave ugly. There are no rules but the rules of Dada. Don’t look back in the past. Always go forward. And whatever you do: don’t trust us.’ But we are going to trust them to play their trippy melodies and head swelling notes that capture our ears, minds, and hearts.

Joining ZD and DL are Joey Bada$$, Manic Focus, Grand Theft, and Basscrooks and special guest Omar Linx. Do I really need to say anything more? So Colorado, come out to your favorite venue on Thursday and be part of a little history making when our beloved Red Rocks becomes the wicked and raving Dead Rocks.

The Naked And Famous – I Kill Giants (Big Black Delta Remix) [TMN Premiere]

The-Naked-and-Famous

If you made it past the really long title, then you are going to enjoy yourself with this remix. Just twenty days ago I was watching The Naked And Famous on stage, live at ‘The Beacham’ in Orlando. I remember them playing “I Kill Giants”, and the crowd was ecstatic. Now we have an amazing remix, from Big Black Delta, to make you feel joyous as well. I really like how trippy things get during the bridge. Alisa Xayalith’s vocals always blow me away, especially with this interesting treatment Big Black Delta provided. If you’re looking for something to get you in the perfect mindset for the week ahead, then you came to the right place!
