Au.Ra
Spare The Thought

We’re not sure how we could have missed learning about the London-based duo, Au.Ra when they had introduced their noteworthy debut single, “Sun” last November. But we’re glad we came across their new track, “Spare the Thought” this week. The track exudes a mellow, psychedelic–toned intro that that fans of Washed Out are sure to appreciate. It’s a definite tune that you could see yourself unwinding to as the sun burns out and the waves collide.

Comprised of Tim Jenkins and Tom Crandles, this musical pair’s tracks can now be purchased on a 7″ from LebensStrasse Records .

E X R O Y A L E
Give It Up

It isn’t easy peeling off the bed to kick start your morning, that is, unless you have a lighthearted song to enhance the day while you do.

E X R O Y A L E dropped their debut single, “Give It Up” at the start of this week, and it’s stirred up quite the happy ear buzz.  Mingling a twist of R&B and synth-pop with treble vocals, the track features simplistic percussions, giving listeners a splash of refreshment.  Mayer Hawthorne x Two Door Cinema Club, that’s the enticing vibe that we get.

We want to know more about them too, but E X R O Y A L E still remains to be a bit of a cloaked mystery on the interwebs. The good news is you can download their single for free while you scope out a few minor teasers on their Instagram – you’ll see what we mean.

In just the short year since Thomas Jack debuted his single “The Final Speech”, a track we had the pleasure of premiering, the musically-mature-beyond-his-years producer has been akin to a torrential downpour of success, registering now 8 singles to hold down a coveted #1 spot on the almighty Hype Machine charts.

Flume & Chet Faker
Drop The Game

A little collaboration, boys?
Flume and Chet Faker teamed up to release ‘Drop the Game’, a fabulous song that shows off the talents of both Australian electronic artists. With the laid-back feel that many of Flume’s songs embrace, Faker adds a little of a jazz/indie sound with electronic melodies. The male vocals throughout the song are casual yet strong, again holding a laid-back feeling. These two artists keep changing the name when it comes to electronic music, putting their own spin and tastes into everyone of their songs and showing the music industry where the future of electronic music is always moving for the better.

Borgore talks about Aokifying America, Charity and the Booty Monster [TMN EXCLUSIVE]

1441306_10151951363565845_1577657462_n

There are few names in the EDM industry that equate to sheer, unadulterated fun. Steve Aoki is one of them, bringing an onslaught of crazy, on-stage antics wherever he goes. From champagne to cake, no stones are left unturned when it comes to putting on one hell of a show.

Over the past month, the Aokify America tour has been cruising from city to city, bringing it’s zany antics, larger than life beats and top notch talent to cities from coast to coast. One of the featured names on this bill is Israeli producer, Borgore. We had a chance to speak to this baron of bass when the tour stopped in at the Ogden Theater in Denver, Colorado. If you get one thing out of this interview, it’s this: do not fear the Booty Monster.

Borgore feat. Waka Flocka Flame & Paige
Wild Out (Club Mix)

TMN: I’m sitting down tonight to talk with the ever talented producer, Mr. Borgore himself. Thanks for taking the time to chat with us tonight. Let’s kick it off by talking about why you’re here in Denver, being on the Aokify America Tour. Steve was recently quoted in the Denver Westword saying, “I want to maximize fun. I want to break the fun meter. Have you guys succeeded in that so far?

Borgore: 100%. The line up has been very versatile, and it kills it every night. Waka and myself are playing almost every show, except for maybe one or two. We also have amazing openers like Deorro, which is probably one of the coolest DJs right now. We had Dirtyphonics, we had Felix Cartal. I bet I missed someone, but we destroy. Out of this world. Amazing.

TMN: You’ve been on tour with a lot of different acts in your career. How do the crowds on this tour compare to ones in the past?

Borgore: I think that the people who come to this show are very open minded to a lot of different genres. It’s just good times. You can explore whatever you want to do in your set and they’re down with it. It’s really good times.

TMN: Are they rowdier than most?

Borgore: Um. I mean, the only thing that is kind of difficult with 16 year olds is they cannot get stupid drunk. You know? So a lot of times you play like to older people…but at the same time, younger kids go stupid rowdy without getting drunk. The tour is pretty fucking rowdy though.

TMN: We have to guess that there are some tour shenanigans going on. Can you shine some light on any pranks or mischief that have happened so far?

Borgore: We’ve done some crazy shit like paintball, and we’re going to go snowboarding tomorrow and stuff like that. I think the main shenanigan is Steve (Aoki) waking me up every fucking morning, when I’m hungover as fuck and all I want to do is die in my bed. He wakes me up, “We’re going to go work out.” I have to work out with him, or I owe him $100 for charity. At the same time, if he doesn’t wake up to work out, he owes $100 to charity.

[Remix] Big Sean – 10 2 10 (Feat. Rick Ross & Travi$ Scott)

10210 Remix Feat. Rick Ross & Travi$ Scott

It’s hard to deny that Big Sean is one of the hardest workers in the game. How else could you explain his steady ascent to the top of the charts over the last few years? Now Sean wants to share in the wealth, allowing a few friends–namely MMG’s Rick Ross and G.O.O.D. Music labelmate Travi$ Scott–to give his latest single a whole new spin. Given the hilarious (or offensive depending on your opinion) nature of the chorus you knew this track was in for a remix treatment. As one of his hardest hitting joints to date, Sean somehow finds a way to improve off the original, with Rozay and Scott sounding right at home over the pounding instrumental. Check out the single above, and make sure to grab yourself a free download. Hall of Fame is in stores now.

[Funk] Prince – Da Burgeoisie

PRINCE
Prince
Da Burgeoisie

Hit-maker and legendary musician Prince takes the time to drop an interesting post-breakup anthem. The singer has always been innovative and not afraid to push the boundaries and this track shows his eccentricity.  The new single “Da Burgeoisie” has the artist crooning about being dumped, but unlike any other generic end to a relationship, he sings about his former babe leaving him for the company of another woman. Sadly, this thought isn’t exactly comforting nor does it help stroke to a man’s ego. Although sad, the artist still keeps it funky and fresh with smooth guitar rips and drum work. Take a listen to the new song above.
