[Hip-Hop] Big Boi – She Hates Me (feat. Kid Cudi)

Two TMN favorites hook up here on this stellar track from Big Boi‘s upcoming album, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors. The focus of this fresh new track revolves around winning back the affection of an ex lover, with Kid Cudi providing the convincingly hopeful chorus. Cudder brings a unique vibe to this track that only he could provide through his mellow melodies, while Big Boi continues to thrive as a solo artist on the mic. It’s definitely a divergence from what we’ve gotten used to hearing from Big Boi, but we’ve seen that this album is all about stepping out of the box for the ATL veteran.

[Fresh] HTDA – Ice Age (deadmau5 Remix)

Deadmau5 throws down some some extremely low key ambient bass abuse. This style of production is incredibly unique and complements these gorgeous vocals perfectly. HTDA never saw it coming, Mr. Mau5 adds just the right amount of remixing to this one, enhancing the empowering vocals almost too well. Cheers.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #14

Finally, the great milestone has arrived with instalment #14 of The Chill Dojo. What, 14 isn’t a milestone number you say? Well there needs to be some excuse for this super-sized edition of 20 tracks, other than the fact that it’s been an awesome week for chill music. Since December has finally rolled around once again, we’ll call it getting into the festive spirit. This time of the year is usually the most stressful with everything going on, so the more calming tunes we can provide the better.

And there’s no better person to turn to for a gentle dose of repose than Goldroom, who this week released a new single capturing a moment of summer paradise like only he knows how. Everything about this song is classic Goldroom, with beautiful melodies, perfect flow and entrancing female vocals. What more needs to be said? Another dojo favorite returns this week in Satin Jackets, releasing an older gem for free that is just so easy to vibe to. The sound here is incredibly versatile, suitable for long drives, dancefloor groovin’ or a classy cafe atmosphere. We first debuted some of Sizzlebird’s production a few weeks back, and told you he would be a recurring name in playlists to come. True to our word and his amazing talent he is back with another gorgeous ambient treat to fall in love with. UK group Rudimental have been blowing up since the release of ‘Not Giving In’, and in celebration gave away their collaboration with US rapper Angel Haze. You won’t typically see much hip hop in the chill dojo as it’s well covered in other areas of the site, but the production is at the forefront of this track and is so tight that it was too good to pass up. Other names to watch in this playlist include Atlantic Connection, who brings some chill dnb and downtempo goodness, as well as three servings of funk courtesy of the latest free EP from French Kiwi Juice.

You can tell it’s going to be a good week to come with so much amazing music to share. Start it off right by listening, downloading and spreading those vibes. Peace out.

[New Tracks] Jack Beats – Storm + Just a Beat

It’s really difficult to develop and own a particular sound these days. There’s a saturation of producers making every genre imaginable, so it’s understandable that certain producers are going to sound similar. With that being said, Jack Beats is one of those producers that maintains their own unique style throughout everything that they do. Last year we got an insight into their production style with an exclusive interview at Beta Nightclub. They expressed how sometimes they develop a bassline or a melody that they feel might be a little weird, which is when they know they have something.

In this dual release you have two very different, albeit true-to-form Jack Beat sounds. “Just a Beat” has a more familiar sound when you think of Jack Beat’s usual work. It features a clean wobbly bassline, horns, and some creepy vocal samples. “Storm” which features vocalist Kid Harpoon offers up a much different listening experience than what we’re used to. The calming trancy progression and haunting lyrics are a refreshing change of pace. While the track is different, elements of Jack Beats still shine through.

[Simply Gorgeous] Nick Vallee (Folly & The Hunter) – Set This House On Fire

If you’ve been paying attention to our site for the last three months, you’ll know that we have the utmost admiration and respect for what Red Brick Songs conducted in Canada last summer for the Casablanca Sessions. If you haven’t been paying attention, then we’ll give you a quick rundown. Red Brick Songs sent a group of amazing indie and folk artists up to Lake Couchiching in Canada to essentially hang out and write songs. The end result was a group of tracks that have all been overwhelmingly impressive.

The most current release is from Nick Vallee from Folly and The Hunter and Rob MacPhee from Paper Lions. Nick’s ethereal vocals carry softly over soft strumming and slow building keyboards. There’s not much else to say other than get ready to hit repeat. This one is a keeper.

[Filthy] Showtek & Justin Prime – Cannonball (Carnage & Victor Niglio Festival Trap Remix)

The comical and entertaining Philly producer Victor Niglio teamed up with LA based producer Carnage to drop an absolutely filthy trap remix of Showtek and Justin Prime’s “Cannonball”. The original big room melody is still in tact, which maintains that great house essence. However, Niglio and Carnage turned this dance club favorite into a bass-laiden trap banger.

We can’t guarantee much in life, but what we can guarantee is that this will make your booty shake.

[Progressive House] Dank ft. jACQ – Crystals

Dank is definitely no newcomer to EDM, besides being the CEO and founder of Funky Elements Records, Dank without a doubt can be classified as a pioneer of heavy bass music. Known for representing the full spectrum of electronic music, Dank has repeatedly proven that his ability to produce Beatport chart topping tracks shows no distinction from genre to genre. This time around Dank has paired up with vocalist jACQ to produce a fantastic progressive house gem titled “Crystals”. Beginning with a plucking melody which beautifully builds into strident anthemic chords layered with spectacular top-line vocals, this track truly embodies the ideology behind uplifting music. I’ve had this track shamelessly on repeat all week (I’m a sucker for female vocals) so give this tune a listen and if you’re a fan make sure to support Dank on Beatport here. Enjoy.
