One of our most cherished parts about doing what we do is when we hear something completely unexpected. And it’s even better when we hear something completely unexpected from an artist that we’ve never heard of.
Yes, Toronto based Producer Duo Free n Losh are somewhat new to the game, but they have a sound that’s decadently rich with history and skill. With their eclectic taste in music they are creating a sound that is loved by connoisseurs of the classics, hip hop and electronica alike.
Take “Things You Don’t Understand” for example. The soulful gospel inspired lyrics play beautifully with the jazz centric hip hop beats. Ray Charles vocals are left in such a natural state that the original tones feel completely organic and unscathed.
Track after track, Free n Losh impress us; they blend classic tunes from the likes of Led Zepplin and Frank Sinatra with modern production techniques. It’s simply overwhelming in all the best ways. With too many talking points to cover, we’ll just let you simply listen. Get ready to go for a ride. This is one of the most impressive things we’ve heard in the past few months.

Next is a clip of an unreleased track from none other then TNGHT, it’s massive. Anytime Yellow Claw teams up with Yung Felix you already know it’s going to be nuts, and this track “Dancefloor Champion” is so on point. Enjoy the rest on your own, and TuRn^.

This self released rock tune has got our attention, and with good reason. This cinematically crafted song by Newcastle based rockers, Crooked Hands, is rife with emotional undertones, frenetic bouts of intense drumming and strumming, and carefully orchestrated finger picking. It may not be the best choice for your Friday night activities, but it demands to be played over and over again.
Orlandoan “Purveyer of Dope” has effectively purveyed us what he lovingly refers to as “Strip Club Bass.” Now, we’ve never personally been to a strip club, so we defintiely can’t tell you that this would be perfect for Mercedes to dance to on stage two.
While Meaux’s remix may or may not be perfect for a night with The Rainmaker and a stack of dollar bills, we have to admit we’re really pumped on his mashup pack. As you know by now, we love highlighting the best mashups and remixes around the web each week in our Friday Party Playlist. After listening to Meaux’s preview, you better believe we’ll be waiting to throw some of those into our CFPP.
WHISTLE SONG BOOTLEG
I Mashed It First (Mixed Preview)
Swedish indie pop quartet Join the Riot have a truly infection sound. In the same vein as TMN favorite Royal Concept, this four piece creates melodic sounds that will get you moving, and get you singing along.
“Queen Marmalade” was released just three months ago, and has a hip moving synth pop sound that we simply can’t get enough of. It blends so perfectly with the warm weather. Take a listen for yourself.
Michael Jackson Tribute Mix By DJ Marky 25th June 2013
With the overwhelming saturation of today’s musical abundance, sometimes it’s hard to think about what it was like 10, 20, or 30 years ago. Back to the days before music blogs, spotify, or even itunes. It seems like forever ago, but it’s a part of our heritage, and it’s important that we embrace those times, as they lead to where we are today.
When a modern DJ/Producer chooses to embrace our musical roots, it’s always something that we appreciate. Today we’re excited to highlight DJ Marky as he has recently put together this amazing mix of the King of Pop – Michael Jackson. From the Jackson Five all the way to “Thriller,” Marky has us covered.
If you need a no brainer for your party this weekend (and have some guests that aren’t keen on trap) throw this on and watch the night floor ignite.
