[MEGA SUMMER 2014] Vol 2: Hip-Hop & R&B Playlist


Summer is an incredibly precious season to us, because in our belief it represents the very best that music has to offer. Whether it’s the slew of magnificent releases that find their way onto our pages, or the breathtaking outdoor festivals and concerts that mesmerize and captivate our attention, there’s no doubt in our minds that music and summer share a truly magical relationship. Going on our second year now, our MEGA SUMMER PLAYLISTS are our ultimate ode to the season, as we pay tribute to the tracks that have soundtracked our journey over the past few months.

Returning bigger and badder than ever, our series chronicles summer’s very best offerings across four different genres. Earlier this month, we debuted the first playlist, which consisted of Indie Rock and Folk singles. Today’s selection of tracks captures the true essence of summer, from breezy and relaxed R&B, to the most turnt-up rap songs on the planet. Believe it or not, we still have two more massive playlists left to share, with a wide array of Alternative tracks on deck for our next release before we wrap things up with our EDM playlist.

We hope this playlist helps you squeeze out the last ounces of summer, while serving as a reminder of how great this season truly was. Enjoy!

[Future-House] Mary J. Blige – Family Affair (Pakem Edition)

∞ Pakem ∞
Mary J. Blige ∞ Family Affair (Pakem Edition)

Another work week is almost in the books, and yet another young producer has been added to our radar of ‘ones to watch’ through the tail end of 2014. Seemingly popping up out of nowhere on our Soundcoud feed was this groovy little remix of Mary J. Blige’s timeless “Family Affair” from 19 year old French electronic producer Pakem, and it held our undivided attention from the jump-off. Pakem’s remix fuses a hollow future tipping bassline with a neo-garage soul and sensibility we haven’t seen exhibited since hearing Disclosure’s early demos before they were signed to Greco-Roman. While not much is currently known about our newest electronic crush, we’re certainly going to be all ears as his already mature library grows. As an even sweeter bonus for your Friday, Pakem’s giving this one away on the house, so be sure to snag a copy here before the weekend kicks into high gear.

Crizzly talks Crunkstep, Pandas, His DIY Approach [EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW]


TMN: Mr Marshall! Thank you so much for taking some time to chat with us today! We’ve been fans for a long-ass time, and it’s great to finally speak with you.

Crizzly: For sure!

TMN: Let’s kick things off by talking about your signature sound, Crunkstep. How did you come to start making this unique blend of heavy bass, hip hop flair, and razor sharp synths?

Crizzly: Well, I’m from a small, country town, right outside of San Antonio. Everyone listens to country a little bit, but everyone in my high school jammed hip hop. We used to listen to that stuff back in 2000. So, I guess that’s how it influenced my music. Dubstep started getting big at the same time that I started producing, so I guess I just kind of combined the two together – stuff that I grew up on and stuff that I liked in the moment.

TMN: While you have your definitive sound, we definitely pick up other influences, especially Flux Pavillion, with the way you use the combination of high pitched synths with your basslines. Talk to us about some of the people that have helped mold you as an artist.

Crizzly: I remember my first year of college, I skipped one of my classes and drove five hours up to Dallas to go see Rusko. He opened with “Sweet Shop” by Doctor P, and that was my favorite track at the time. That track totally moved me. I wanted to make stuff like that. That was the moment I wanted to make loud noises (laughs).

[NEW] SBTRKT – War Drums (ft. Warpaint) + Highs & Lows

’SBTRKT – War Drums (ft. Warpaint) LIVE AT MAIDA VALE’

With his forthcoming album about a month away, SBTRKT continues to provide us reasons to be excited. On his latest release, the pioneering electronic producer let loose track number 3 from the second part of the project.

“War Drums,” which features the vocals of talented Warpaint front-woman Emily Kokal, delivers exactly what its name suggests with intricate, driving percussion. Per usual, SBTRKT shows off an immaculate attention to detail and an ear for the perfect singing voice to match leaving the listener in a state of awe that only grows with incremental listens. According to the track listing, this one will clock in at just under three minutes, but the version presented here is a stunning live rendition from BBC‘s Maide Vale Sessions, which is nearly two minutes longer.

As part of a three-song Soundcloud set, all from the same live session, SBTRKT also shared a live version of the Sampha-assisted “Temporary View” and “Highs and Lows,” from his Transitions EP. Peep the new sounds above–Wonder Where We Land is out on September 23rd and can be pre-ordered via iTunes.

[TMN PREMIERE] Rae Sremmurd – No Flex Zone (Styles&Complete Remix)

No Flex Zone (Styles&Complete Remix)

Sometimes being a ninja can be a little exhausting, however, we never let this creative fatigue get to our heads, ESPECIALLY when we have a track that will undoubtedly make you want to take advantage of Hump Day in the dirtiest way possible. We aren’t here to hit you in the feels, so save the tears for another day and go put your twerking shorts on because we are about to take hyphy to the next level with the latest Styles&Complete remix of Rae Sremmurd’s anthem, “No Flex Zone.” After hearing this festival banger we could not stop flexing – so FAIR WARNING – you will flex and there’s no way you can resist the temptation.

Styles&Complete took this radio hit and threw on some booty bass, some wanky chopped horn synths, and solidified it all with some heavy hitting drums strong enough to punch you in the face. These guys obviously looked this track straight in the eye and said “we are about to violate the shit out of you and people will lose their minds once we’re done,” because this remix just permeated our skin with straight heat. You might need to go stock up on some fire extinguishers or at least go take a shower after exposing your senses to such filth because Stlyes&Complete will make you feel grimey as hell. Overall, this remix certainly met our expectations and in turn we just signed up to take booty bouncing lessons in order to perfect this artistic form of self-expression.
