The Call (Heartsong)
This morning I was woken up by severe thunderstorms. Literally every thirty seconds I would hear the loudest thunder, and lightning even hit my neighbors house. I got on facebook, and I received a message regarding this track. The sun came out as I hit play, and it was a pretty unique moment. It’s almost like Ruu Campbell‘s song made the weather from dark to beautiful. As I am listening to “The Call”, I feel at peace. “The Call” took my mind away from things I have been going through, and I am completely focused on how wonderful this song is. No more negative feelings about what I could have done, or how I am feeling in general. Ruu Campbell washed away all of that negative energy with one track, and I am impressed. Now that Ruu Campbell made me feel better, I am going to run to the beach and get some sun. Ciao
Gazzo feat. Y LUV-Never Touch The Ground (Original Mix)
It appears that we have been digging the Progressive House vibes yet again, ninjas, and this time we’re bringing back one of TMN’s favorite artists to get us back in the loop. Hailing from the state where people’s skin is as orange as the earth’s core, New Jersey producer, Gazzo, has been taking things to the next level with each and every track he puts out. No matter what Gazzo does, he always makes us want to shuffle, cry, and feel every ounce nostalgia with each synth, kick, and drop.
Yesterday, Gazzo released a new original track, “Never Touch the Ground” featuring Y LUV. This progressive house feeler is jam packed with uplifting synths, intricate melodies, and a vocal that’ll elevate your spirit off the ground. Gazzo and Y LUV truly put their heart and souls in this one and decided to make this one a freebie for all of you music lovers. Grab yours today and get those feelings going!
There seems to be something extra cute in the Summer air these days to which all we want to do is stroll around town with our significant others then end the day with a little sensual lovin’. Long-time TMN favorites, TastyTreat, have been notorious for making the kind of music that will make you swoon for days on end. Not only does their music make us want to cuddle the living hell out of the biggest and fluffiest teddy bear around, but it also makes us want to rip our clothes off and do the damn thing if you know what we’re sayin’.
Today we are extremely excited to premiere their newest original track, “Say Yes”. With its future bass/R&B vibe, “Say Yes” seduces your ears, your mind, and your body to the point where you might find yourself in bed with these tasty beats. As soon as you press play, you are introduced with a flawless piano melody that intricately progresses into the ultimate bedroom anthem of the Summer. After listening to this song through and through, we realized that our productivity for the rest of the day is about to be at an all time low, however, we might just make up for that later tonight.
TastyTreat definitely made us feel some type of way with this one and they want you to, as well, so download this baby makin’ tune while it’s hot. It may not be Friday according to Rebecca Black’s standards, but just remember that no one ever said you couldn’t get down on a Tuesday. Do yourself a favor and go grab a tasty treat because we guarantee you’ll want to satisfy that sweet tooth behind closed doors.
Chet Faker x GoldLink
In yet another top-notch installment of Yours Truly‘s Songs from Scratch series, talented Australian vocalist/producer and oft Flume collaborator, Chet Faker, joins forces with DMV-based emcee Goldlink for the breezy jam, “On You.” Faker provides some chilled-out, hypnotizing production adding some stellar vocals of his own before the talented Goldlink takes the mic. Always showing off his versatility, the rapidly rising artist kicks his verse off with a second chorus of sorts before speeding his delivery up into well-timed, clever rhymes. Faker ties the ending of the song together perfectly with a jazzy, soulful piano outro accompanied by a percussion breakdown. Enjoy this awesome collaboration above and hit the jump to watch the behind the scenes video to hear the track’s backstory –hint: it was inspired by a woman.
Need & Necessity
This Life (Original Mix)
Denver based Deep and Tech-House producers Need & Necessity have glowingly been on our radar here at TMN for over a year behind a veritable smattering of precisely constructed dance tunes, including the “Thong Song” leaning cut “Lemme See” and a joint collaboration with option4 entitled “We Comin Up”. While we were one of the very first to feature the hip-swing-inducing pair’s eclectic blend of techno, classic,G, and deep house; it’s been great to see their tunes begin to take more of a foothold as each passing production comes out more polished than the previous. “This Life” is the latest addition to Need & Necessity’s sturdy output, and also the clear favorite to come out of their camp for us thus far. A surprisingly soulful trip into more tech-house recognized samples and sound kits, “This Life” plies its groove off of an expansive kick-drum and snapping snare before glossing up behind that signature Need & Necessity hi-hat shuffle. Further establishing the rhythmic cadence on “This Life”, a sparsely filtered vocal works its way into a mesmerizing loop and simultaneous focal point as the words “We Don’t Need” glide effortlessly around the tune to steal the show. It seems that Matt Friedman & Ross Kiser’s dance project is hitting the most mature stretch of their young production career and coming out of performances at Winter Music Conference, Snowball Music Festival and pairings in their home city with Rob Garza, Anna Lunoe and Moon Boots in July alone; it’s no wonder. “This Life” is being released on Night Supply Records and as with all of their releases, will be given away for free as a digital download, so hop to it here Ninjas. Stream “This Life” from Need & Necessity above, and if you missed our interview with them and their label mates a few months back, check it out here.
Bobby Tank comes through with a glorious remix of an incredibly sexy track from Indiana, titled “Heart On Fire”. Bobby’s last release, the 2 track “Undone EP” was nothing short of amazing. And now this flip of Indiana is sprinkled with dreamy synth work, and mixes perfectly her seductive vocals. This single “Heart On Fire” is on her debut album that is due to drop September 1st, and should go completely viral. Especially with mind blowing remixes such as this one from Bobby. Cheers.
