[Epic] JASIA – Inverbatim


Josiah Willows, aka JASIA, has a knack for creating larger than life soundscapes. In his debut track, this classically trained producer has developed a sound which falls somewhere in a hybrid of Sigur Ros and Tycho.

Seeing as how this Melbourne/London based artist studied classical voice, guitar and violin performing in orchestras in earlier years, it’s easy to understand how he could have such a natural gift for deriving bass driven electronic beats overlaid with orchestral layers of synthesisers, strings, guitars on a bed of vocal samples.

Press play and get lost in this one, ninjas. It won’t be difficult to do so.

[Chill] SZA – Childs Play (feat. Chance the Rapper) (prod. XXYYXX)

SZA ft. Chance the Rapper
Childs Play (prod. XXYYXX)

Top Dawg Entertainment‘s first female signee SZA, who is currently gearing up to release a project, dropped off an incredibly laid-back tune just a few minutes ago. As if one new Chance the Rapper verse wasn’t enough for today, the young emcee also snagged some bars on this cut. If you are already familiar with Orlando-based phenom producer XXYYXX, you will likely recognize the production from his 2012 track “About You” although it has been slightly sped up with some additional instrumentation by Dae One.

SZA’s vocals glide over the haunting, down-tempo beat and Chance delivers a solid verse that displays both his lyricism and unique singing voice. When the vocals of TDE’s first lady and Chance collide near the end, they make for a soothing harmony that close out the song perfectly. Peep above and keep an eye out for SZA’s project, Z,  which is set to drop on April 8th.

[Electro-Pop] Racing Glaciers – Moths (Carousel Remix)

Racing Glaciers
Moths (Carousel Remix)

It’s been a bit since we’ve had the pleasure of featuring our favorite synth-heavy happy-dance duo in the music landscape, L.A. based Carousel, and that is quite a shame as their sophisticated brand of electronica always seems to pull a warm smile from most of our staff here at TMN. This morning, much to our delight, Carousel unveiled their latest addition to the remix pool; molding Brit Racing Glaciers’ slightly folky ballad into a whirlwind of atmospheric MIDI jabs and sunny, playful percussion. The pair’s slick instrumentation jives wonderfully with Tim Monaghan’s original vocal track, inspiring some desirable visions of the impending Spring and Summer seasons. Quite honestly we’ve just been looping this tune on repeat (wishing we were beach side with one of those fruity umbrella drinks) since our first listen and their pristine sound never once let its grasp loosen from our ears. Carousel’s remix comes as part of Racing Glaciers’ forthcoming Moths EP which can be purchased here, but for the stream-only type, do yourself a favor by hitting the play button, slinking back and unwinding after your long day.

[Chill Trap] Cosmic Quest ft. Molly Williams – Water Winds

cosmic quest
Cosmic Quest
Water Winds (Feat Molly Williams)

For only a short time period, Los Angeles experiences a wave of cold weather in which everyone thinks the world is about to end. While those individuals are in crisis mode, I’m over here embracing the icy sensation of this ideal temperature. Often times, cold weather promotes a more serene setting for chill music and that is exactly what we have in store for you today with the blissful beats from Cosmic Quest.

Water Winds” is one of those songs that makes you want to hop in the car and drive for hours on end with no destination in mind.  The tranquil flow of this track ultimately takes you on a whirlwind of emotions. Molly Williams is what makes this song perfect; her smooth, melodic, angelic voice takes us all on an exotic journey into the very core of our souls. If there was one word to describe this gem of a song, I would have to say ‘sex’ – so sit back, relax, and turn up the volume for this one because you’re about to soar above the clouds to a place only your mind can take you.

[Hip-Hop] Chance the Rapper & The Social Experiment – Home Studio

Chance The Rapper & The Social Experiment
Home Studio ( Back Up In This Bitch)

Chit-town rep and ninja favorite Chance the Rapper just improved our morning with a spontaneous release. “Home Studio,” as its name suggests, is a pretty raw song, but continues Chance’s creative narrative.

Over some fittingly fun and bouncy production, Chance goes in full ad-lib mode boasting about his success in the industry despite the uniqueness of his sound. In a way, the goofy tone ends up complementing the light and triumphant content of the lyrics. Check this one above for a fresh, mid-week energy boost.

[ULTRA 2014 Schedule Recommendation] TMN’s Must See Guide to Ultra (Miami 3/28 – 3/30)


Ahh. The time is finally here. All winter long we’ve been angrily looking at the calendar, not-so-patiently awaiting the start of festival season here in the states. To kick things off in 2014, we’re obviously overwhelmingly excited for what Ultra 2014 is bringing to the table.

As you would guess, this year’s line up is stacked, as usual. There’s a veritable pantheon of EDM legends, coupled with some amazing up and coming artists as well. We traditionally like to do a full stream of everyone that’s going to be there, but this year we’re going to change it up. Instead of giving you a tiny sample of each artist who’s playing, we’re going to give you our recommendations, day by day.

Scheduling is going to be tricky, so make sure you set out a proper game plan. It might be hard to stick to after a few beverages, but take it from us – don’t miss out on seeing your favorite artist, or any of these suggestions below:

M.I.A. – Live Stage

Picked by Eric Gossett

TMN Staff Comment: The ever-controversial M.I.A. is definitely a “don’t miss” performance at this year’s Ultra Music Festival. The singer just released her critically-acclaimed album Matangi last year and is currently being sued by the NFL for $15 million for her performance at the Super Bowl. So if that was what they (couldn’t) show at the Super Bowl, I can only imagine how wild her uncensored stage show must be.

12TH Planet – UMF Radio Stage

Picked by Clayton Warwick


TMN Staff Comment: Last year, I had the pleasure of introducing someone to trap, and did so by watching 12th Planet’s set on Sunday afternoon. This well respected, LA based producer will be throwing down a massive set full of filthy beats. If you want to get down and dirty, don’t miss this set.

Chance the Rapper – Live Stage

Picked by Baseer Ahmad and Clayton Warwick


TMN Staff Comment: You say you’re going to Ultra to only listen to beats? Don’t limit yourself. A break in the bass will be welcomed, and who better to give you said break than Chi-Town native, Chance the Rapper?
