Oliver Heldens
Gecko (Preview)

Dutch producer Oliver Helden has brought a fresh new sound to Tiesto’s Musical Freedom label, and simply put, we’re grinning ear to ear. Not that we have a problem with trance, electro house or progressive house, but it’s nice to see a spotlight on a really solid tech house tune. Without the use of vocals, a beautiful melody or devastating drops, “Gecko,” crawls under your skin in the best way. It has one of those infectious beats that demands your presence on the dance floor, and we can pretty much guarantee that you’re going to oblige its siren call.

This tune is out just in time for your New Year’s Eve celebrations, dropping December 30th. Mark your calendar.

[TMN Resident Artist for December] Markus Schulz

Markus Schulz
GDJB World Tour: Chicago

Everyone likes for the end of the year to go out with a bang, and TMN is no exception to this desire.

For our last Resident Artist before the New Year, we wanted to find someone whose music speaks for itself, someone who is beloved by many and who continues to demonstrate their undeniable musical talent.Please welcome to the stage, Mr. Markus Schulz.

Over the last 10 years this insane DJ has crafted the individual music identities of progressive, trance, and house into his own unique fusion sound. In 2008 Schulz broke into the #10 on DJ Magazine’s Top 100 chart and since then he has continued his great success playing over 150 gigs a year, two label releases, millions of listenership, his personal Global DJ broadcast and he holds the title last year for DJ Times Magazine reader-voted America’s Best DJ.
Like many artists, Schulz’s love for dance music started at a young age. He emigrated from Germany to the United States when he was little and here, when he was just 13, he became enamored with the breakdance scene. From there he started to remix songs and his DJ career was born. Schulz’s sound was quickly noticed by European DJs. In 2004, he signed with heavyweight DJ agency David Lewis Productions (also home to Armin Van Buuren, a friend of Schulz’s). From this point on, the list of Schulz’s accomplishments as a DJ and a producer expand far beyond just one blog post. The truth is in his music, Schulz has been a prominent face of dance music for quite some time and will continue to spread his love of the music to as many countries, cities, and people as he can.
Here’s to ending 2013 with a dance music legend whose name is Markus Schulz.

[Hip-Hop] A$AP Mob – Trillmatic (Feat. A$AP Nast & Method Man)

asap-mob-trillmatic

With A$AP Rocky sitting steady near the top of the game, and A$AP Ferg ruling the trap, it’s finally time for the world to take notice of the rest of the A$AP Mob. Looking ahead to 2014, the crew is gearing up to drop their debut studio album, Lords, in early March. Stepping up to the plate first is A$AP Nast with “Trillmatic,” a Method Man assisted cut that sounds like it was plucked straight out of the early 90’s. Both emcees are in rare form here, meaning hip-hop heads of all ages should be pleased with this one. Check out the video below, and stayed tune from more from the Mob as they prepare for their upcoming release.

[Electro Pop] Grouplove – Ways To Go (Xaphoon Jones Remix)

Grouplove
Ways To Go (Xaphoon Jones Finale Remix)

Well, ladies and gentleninjas, I have some tragic news to share with you all today. It appears that Xaphoon Jones is no more. Before you panic at the thought of a world without Xaphoon however, you must know that this is all part of an elaborate rebirth for the Philadelphia native under the new moniker, Noah Breakfast. Before preparing for life under his new identity, the talented producer decided to provide us with one last hurrah, this remix of Grouplove‘s “Ways To Go.” We didn’t think anyone could possibly top The Knocksrendition of the track, but Xaphoon is prepared to give them a run for their money. This latest remix  takes a far more unique spin on things, slowing things down from the original, isolating the vocals, and amplifying them with some much needed bass.

All in all, it serves as a fitting end to this chapter of Xaphoon’s career, which has been in a bit of a transitional period lately, especially after leaving Chiddy Bang. While we’re sad to see that awesome title go, we wish him all the best as he undergoes his new transformation.
