Ellie Goulding – Anything Could Happen (Submerse Remix)

In our continuing love for anything Ellie Goulding, here is an icy chilled new remix by Submerse. The lead single “Anything Could Happen” from her upcoming second studio album, Halcyon, is submerged in a haze of opaque and soft melodies that by contrast only highlights the beautiful vocals of the young and talented English singer.

[Hip-Hop] iSH – Demons (THR3MIX) Feat. e-dubble

If any indie release of the last year was primed for a rap remix, it was Sleigh Bells‘ “Demons.” With blaring drums, explosive guitar riffs, and fervent hollering throughout, it would take a powerful emcee to match the feverish intensity of the original track. Well, we think we’ve finally found a good candidate on our hands in Toronto’s own, iSH. Opting to go with the slightly more subtle Diplo remix of the song, iSH and Philly’s e-dubble manage to complete the tough task of absolutely tearing this beat to shreds. Plus, any time you can talk trash about your wookie is truly a win in my book.

This release is the just the first in an excellent series of “THR3MIXES” by iSH.  Catch the full set below, along with some free download links.

Bonus: iSH – THR3MIX Series

[Indie Rock] Paper Lions – At Long Creek

We now have two reasons to enjoy Prince Edward Island. The first being the epic set of novels and subsequent made-for-tv movies, Anne of Green Gables, and the second being the indie rock band, Paper Lions. Don’t act like you’ve never heard of the former in that sentence. We know you have. While we are totally kidding about Anne of Green Gables, we are dead serious about Paper Lions. This Canadian 4-piece has somehow slipped underneath our radar until now, but we’re locked onto them from this point on.

It’s a rare feat when a band can put out a poppy sound that’s both intricate, and easy to listen to at the same time. There’s tons of artists out there that try to do this, but few have the wherewithal to pull it off. Paper Lions is a harmonious blend of rhythmic guitar, soft finger picking, playful piano, delicate harmonies, fluttering falsettos, and a lead singer that has a perfectly inviting voice for this rock outfit. While their sound can be poppy at times, it can also be soulful, deep, and thought provoking. This show of musical range is another reason why we felt we needed to share the whole EP with you.

Below is a selection of tracks that we think sums up their sound well. While we would love to post all six tracks from this recently released EP, we do realize that you have an internet attention span, and lose interest quickly. So we’ve picked the best of the best (or so we think). Once you’re done loving these tunes, head over to their facebook page for a free download of “At Long Creek”.

[Hip-Hop] Yuna – Live Your Life (ft. Theophilus London)

One of our favourite rappers Theophilus London has stepped up to remix “Live Your Life” by underground talent Yuna, and boy is it good. The Kuala Lumpur-based singer’s soft vocals and gentle synths give it a sweet vibe, allowing London to weave his raps around Yuna’s angelic voice. Definitely one of the most exciting tracks out there at the moment, “Live Your Life” has a lot of potential for both Yuna and London. Don’t miss Yuna’s self-titled album (featuring Pharell on production), out now.

[TMN Exclusive] Celldweller Interview

Miss Murders Personal Jesus (Celldweller Klash
Up) (Free Download)

Disposable War Pigs (Celldweller Klash
Up) (Free Download)

One look at Celldweller is more than enough to make you think this is an interesting person. Aside from the edgy metal look, the sci-fi album covers, and an overwhelming dedication to his fans, his musical style is enough to spend a few hours talking about.

We first stumbled on Celldweller with his Klash-Up (spelled with a K for his name, Klayton) of famed Metal gods Metallica and Ozzy Osbourne. Since that day, it’s been a whirlwind of releases which all encompass his signature sound. If you’ve never spent any time listening to him, now is the time. Klayton’s style is truly unique, blending dubstep, drum and bass, and elements of metal into perfectly crafted tracks. Seeing him live only made us more impressed with this sound, as hundreds of club goers switched back and forth from dancing to head banging. It’s truly a sight to see.

We had a chance to sit down with Celldweller at Beta Nightclub and talk about everything from to when he first heard about Beta to how he feels about his own music.

TMN: Welcome to Colorado, Klayton. Is this your first time performing here?

CD: It is not. I played the Marquis maybe a year ago, on a Tuesday night, and was really impressed with how vibrant the scene was. That was more of my rock iteration of my show which is like a DJ set meets a rock band.

For a Tuesday night, I was pretty impressed at the Denver scene. Electronic music is thriving here.

TMN: Your career as an electronica artist is relatively young. What does it feel like to play at such a highly revered club such as Beta?

CD: I’ve always been electronically minded, I just grew up playing instruments so that’s always been a part of my sound. I’m a musician, I’m not really comfortable with just getting up there and pushing buttons. I’ve always gotta be doing something.

Playing instruments is where I’m most naturally comfortable. I know how to play all those instruments, I could write a hundred songs like that, but it’s much more challenging for me to try and get a different tone for drums and synths and different textures for every sound that I create. So what I did is really complicate my own life. That’s what gets me off.

TMN: What does it mean specifically to play at a club like Beta though?

CD: It means a lot. When I found out that I was playing here, especially with Bare, I was really excited be here at Beta. I actually had a conversation with BT about a year ago, he said, “Have you ever played at Beta, because that place is insane.” Then now to actually be here, and to be playing with Bare, I’m lovin’ it. And you can tell that people here are really into the music.

TMN: We were just up there for your set and people were going insane. You’re like a rock star personified into a DJ.

CD: Well, I never considered myself a rock star, but if you want to use that term. I actually was a “rock star”, so that’s where it came from. I actually didn’t feel like I was moving around that much tonight, but that’s because I rehearsed really hard last night and my neck is really sore.

TMN: We were stoked on one of your very first “Klash-ups” Disposable War Pigs. Do you feel that track was kind of a game changer for you?

CD: No. I actually just did it with no pretense. I just did it because I love both bands. I knew I wanted to do something, and I knew that the Sabbath song was wide open. I could just program around that thing for days because there was huge open sections around Ozzy’s voice. I actually did it thinking no one would care. In a really short amount of time we started finding out that a lot of people reacted to it. We found out that Excision was closing out his sets with my track on his tour when he came back for his encore.

I always create pretending that no one in the world cares what I’m doing. Because I’m really doing this for me anyways, so I can’t base my judgements or decisions based on what someone else wants to hear.

[Lovestep] MitiS – Born

Lovestep AKA liquid/progressive dubstep is a sub-genre of electronic music that I feel is often taken for granted. Dubstep utilizes high energy synths and thunderous basslines to scramble the brains of listeners all the while sending them into a dancing frenzy. Lovestep on the contrary, takes on an arguably more difficult task utilizing similar resounding bass in conjunction with soothing melodies to ease its listeners into a state of pure bliss. Joe Torre, better known as MitiS, has rapidly been gaining notoriety of late for producing quality releases across all genres of EDM. Today, MitiS released his latest effort “Born”. “Born” is a beautiful lovestep track riddled with poignant melodies and harmonious synths. Best of all, MitiS released the track for free so snag a download and enjoy!

Also, if you’re interested in hearing some of MitiS’ harder material, make sure to check out his recent remix of Heavyweight’s tune “Butterknife” here!
