DJ Snake & Lil Jon
Turn Down For What (Remix) (Feat. Juicy J, 2 Chainz & French Montana)
You already know the ninjas here at TMN turn down for nothing, but now thanks to DJ Snake, we’ve been properly acquainted with a few more gentlemen for whom turning down is not an option. After revealing plans for a remix earlier this week via Facebook, we’ve finally got our hands on the tasty banger, featuring the ratchet trio of Juicy J, 2 Chainz and French Montana. If you thought you’d finally heard the last of Lil Jon‘s guttural screaming, you sir (or madam) are sadly mistaken, because this song is destined to be on rotation for the remainder of the summer. So why bother fighting it? Just turn up the speakers to full blast, and repeat after us: “TURN DOWN FOR WHAT?!”
Taking on the name of one of America’s favorite theatrical families is a challenge in and of itself. Bearing the name proudly while playing some infectious, indie pop tunes is a whole different animal. Luckily for Sydney based five piece, The Griswolds, they’ve done done just that, offering up an entirely different reason to grin ear to ear when someone says “The Griswolds.”
With uplifting, uptempo guitar-centric tunes, this Aussie outfit has us rocking flip flops, tank tops and Ray Bans, despite the fact that it’s still not warm enough to sport any of that gear. Regardless of which, these cats have a sound that calls on associations of classic acts like The Violent Femmes and new school island rockers like St. Lucia. The choruses are just catchy enough to sing along with, but not overwhelming to the point that you grow tired of them. The guitar work is intricate, yet easy to interpret. The drum work is enticing, creating the urgent need to get up and dance.
As a whole, Heart of a Lion is a four track collection of pop goodness that will gleefully crawl under your skin with ease, making you yearn for sandy beaches, fruity drinks, and a beautiful girl or guy to share it with.
The Courtship of Summer Preasley
Grapefruit (Larrykoek Remix)
Over the past few years, we’ve seen a surfacing in the popularity of deep house among the masses. With that rising of deep bass hits and pitched down vocals, we’ve heard numerous remixes of one of our favorite Motown artists of all times, Marvin Gaye.
Serving up his spin on a legendary tune, Larrykoek has dialed up a piano centric deep house remix of the 1966 classic, “I Heard it Through the Grapevine.” While maintaining the original appeal through nearly un-altered vocals, this Netherlands based DJ/Producer has something perfect for ramping up your weekend activities, or winding down from them.
Partition (Invoker Remix)
Stealing the label of “Grooves and Moves” from one of our favorite music business personalities, we honestly couldn’t find a better way to label this deliciously deep house tune from Parisian producer Invoker. Pulling together some sultry synths, this Frenchman has flipped the famous American pop diva’s “Partition” on it’s head, giving it a seductive house treatment.
If you’re in the midst of getting ready for an epic night out, this song will accompany a shower beer quite nicely, providing adequate grooves for you to get all sexied up to.
Keep it real, ninjas. Keep it real.
The lovingly adorned “Sexy Sax Man” just continued the norm of hooking his fans up with free tracks with “Throwback,” just in time for Counterpoint. This track is a sexy, silky smoove (yes, I actually typed out smoove) future bass tune that’s primed and ready for your weekend endeavors.
Featuring a dirty steel drum trap breakdown, this tune encapsulates everything we’ve come to know and love about GRiZ. Shake up a Mojito, press play, and get ready for some tropical, bass-heavy grooves.
If you’re heading to Counterpoint, make sure to catch his set Saturday, at 9:45 on the Steeple stage. If you can’t make it, no worries. He’s still in the midst of his Power in Numbers Spring Tour. Check out his facebook for all the pertinent details.
ZMoney & Danny Brown
Jug & Finesse (prod. Jneal)
Just in time for the weekend, two of the midwest’s most ratchet, Chicago’s ZMoney and Detroit’s Danny Brown, have teamed up for an anthem of sorts titled “Jug & Finesse.” With the assistance of a typically hard-hitting instrumental from Jneal, each rapper demonstrates their unique, yet contrasting, styles.
ZMoney, who’s Rich B4 Rap earned him a cosign from Drake, carries an unconventional trapped-out delivery that falls in line with the rise of artists like Young Thug. Danny, on the other hand, is in a league of his own with exceptional technical skills and an unmatchably strange energy. The two styles unite in an unexpectedly awesome way making for a Friday-worthy slap. Enjoy the stream and turn up above
Another week has come and gone, and here we are staring pure, unadulterated freedom right in it’s beautiful face. We know you probably have a few more hours of work left, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start jamming out.
