Brooklyn based hip-hop crew Phony Ppl teamed up with rising artist Theophilus London to drop a self produced, chill instrumental titled morninG after pill. I use the terms hip-hop and feature loosely as this track focuses more on the collective sound of the group’s drums, chords, keys and various vocal talents from members Dyme-A-Duzin, PJ and Elbee. London drops a cool, quick 16 bars, fusing reggae, rap and scatting, moving the song into an original, eclectic “audio-crack” genre of its own.
This song is featured on their ironically named 7-track debut EP nothinG Special and is available for free download here.

Stockholm quartet The Royal Concept are fast becoming one of the blogosphere’s favourite indie rock bands, and not hard to see why after listening to new track ‘Naked And Dumb’. Lyrically, ‘Naked and Dumb’ is about a stripper who became obsessed with the band’s singer, and the razor-sharp guitars and synths create a suitably angsty backdrop for this frank yet somehow upbeat breakdown of a crush gone wrong. An intriguing new track from The Royal Concept, ‘Naked And Dumb’ is featured on ‘The Royal Concept’ EP.

If you haven’t heard of Planet Asia, allow me to introduce you. He’s one half of the duo Cali Agents (with Rasco) but has become better known in the hip hop community for his solo releases since he signed with Interscope Records. The track Fuck Rappers features a laid back sample, reminiscent of something Kanye has used in the past and features two worthy guests in Willie the Kid and Fashawn. Roll the windows down and cruise the town because this has that feel good easy summer flow. Clever lyrics deliver a simple and boastful message but damnit you’ll be bobbing your head involuntarily shorty after it starts. You can find this track on Planet Asia’s new album Black Belt Theater which is worth a listen to based off the name alone but features quality hip hop, if the title doesn’t convince you.

Here at TMN we have seen our fair share of Bad Girl remixes, and sure enough every once in a while another amazing rendition comes along that we have to post. Well I will keep this short and sweet, SURKIN has taken a very much overly remixed track and give it a middle eastern new twist that compliments the original. Enjoy

So if your down, come with me….I AM SO DOWN. Just fell in love with Polina Goudieva, but seriously Asian Jesus always comes through with finding some sexy vocals to throw down on this tracks. Now Lazy Rich marches you straight into dance floor heaven with this insane remix of “Come With Me” using a very unique breakdown with a small drum section sprinkled with some wobbles, followed by a pause that leaves you hanging before this enormous drop. Relentless electro filth is the only thing that comes to mind once this one gets going, and I can’t wait for the full release of this track. Cheers.

Unsigned act The Peach Kings are taking the blogs and radio by storm with their blues-influenced pop. Latest single ‘Fisherman’ is a perfect showcase of just what this duo are all about. Texan singer Paige McClain Wood’s sultry vocal weaves around a bewitching combination of old crackly blues and more modern synth-based sounds, creating a heady and incredibly catchy song with massive potential. ‘Fisherman’ is definitely one of this summer’s greatest tracks, so stay tuned for more from The Peach Kings.
In similar fashion to the Candylands OG Remix we featured a while back, OH SNAP!! has trapified the classic Sandstorm by Darude into a much swagged out remix.
Oh Snap!! is from Maryland, United States and you can find more on his soundcloud.
