There is light at the end of the tunnel, another insane tune from Knife Party. With Rob Swire recently going on a Twitter rant about hating Dubstep and admitting Knife Party could be partially responsible for some it. It comes as no surprise that they drop some more brain scrambling Electro House. Nothing but euphoric melodies, mixed with flawless drum work, and seizure worthy wobbles in this “Untitled” track.

Young Australian electronic artist Flume — who we had the pleasure of interviewing not too long ago — stopped by the famed Boiler Room a few weeks ago to drop a hot 45-minute mix. Today, the BR crew was kind enough to post the entire set on Soundcloud and we’re here to give you the heads up. There is no official tracklist, but tune in and see what you can spot. The opener’s a nice take on his hit single “Sleepless”…

Never thought I’d be saying this, but it’s been awhile since we’ve heard from producer maestro Star Slinger. The last thing we featured here on TMN was his Paris Social x DJ Mag Mix back in December — it doesn’t feel that long ago, but in Slinger time, considering he releases mixtapes and remixes like it ain’t no thing, a few months feels like years. This week, however, he’s back with a “refix” of “Gold” by fellow UK electronic music aficionados, Bondax. Injected with more heat and energy, it’s definitely one for the clubs. Check it out below.

It’s only the beginning of February, but after listening to “First Days Of Something”, it’ll feel as though we’re on the brink of Spring. The Norwegian outfit Young Dreams pack their latest single with sunny indie pop, peppered with playful, bouncy guitar lines and the warmest Beach Boys-esque harmonies. Mondays can be a real bummer, so brighten up your day with this track. Check it out below.
Young Dreams’ debut LP, Between Places, drops March 1 (AUS)/March 4 (UK,EU)/March 5 (US) via Modular Recordings.
First Days Of Something
Diplo‘s 2013 world takeover has just begun. First up, teaming with GTA for some funky Electro infused Moombah. Sampling Missy Elliot‘s song “Work It” in the best ways possible, and delivering some incredible vocal work. Ever drop in this just keeps you wanting more, and the third drop resembles Knife Party‘s track “Sleeze”. Next is another huge collabo from Diplo and DJ Fresh, and they murder this one. With another massive sample, using Notorious B.I.G.’s track “Grab My Gun”. Pew, pew, pew, lasers.
These were both ripped from the mix at the bottom by GTA titled, Death To Genre’s Mix Vol. 1.

Taking the web this past week for the nostalgic #Throwback Thursdays, mega-producer Danja leaked a new track from M.I.A. via Youtube titled “Doobie”. The previously unreleased track, recorded during “Bad Girls”, is a fast-paced synth heavy dance track dedicated to that little plant known for placing people on cloud 9. It is not clear whether this track will be on M.I.A’s upcoming project Matangi, whose release was pushed back for being “too positive”, but this short and infectious track is definitely a banger. Be sure to check it out below.
