[Alternative Rock] The Strokes – All The Time

Along with the announcement of their new album Comedown MachineThe Strokes have dropped their second single, entitled “All the Time”.  In this song, The Strokes go back to their roots.   They leave behind the synths from “One Way Trigger“ in favor of the much more familiar electric guitar riffs they’ve been known for since the beginning.  After two singles, it sounds like the new album will be a good one.

Comedown Machine is due out on March 26, 2013 on RCA Records.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #26

The 26th edition of the Chill Dojo by all calculations marks exactly half a year since it first began. Since then, it’s definitely grown from being a humble collection of various mellow tunes to a mighty playlist with regular names, diverse genres and plenty of free downloads to add your collection. This week is a celebration of all those achievements, with 25 songs to vibe to, which is what it will always be about.

So let’s start this party with a track that has gained quite a bit of attention this week and is certainly well deserving of the prestigious track-of-the-week honours, ‘Skylarking’. Trance is a genre quite foreign to the Chill Dojo, but veteran artist BT has masterfully crafted something that can only be described as a musical experience, spanning over ten minutes of joyful bliss. If you want to lose yourself in sound today, this is the way to do it. Moving on now, and there are certain songs that will automatically be in strong contention for a dojo appearance no matter the countless remixes that have already featured (cough Goldroom’s ‘Fifteen’ cough). Well ‘Gold’ by Bondax is another title that holds that same prestige, and when you have a remix by none other than dojo favourite Moon Boots, you have yourself a surefire winner. Those smooth synths together with that infectious voice…so good. And speaking of Brits with addictive sounds, Kidnap kid is another name quickly making his mark on the dojo, pumping out some slick playful beats that will no doubt get you smiling and dancing along in little time. The next few in the list provide some stellar chill trap tunage, with remixes of big names and singles like Baby Bash’s RnB classic ‘Suga Suga’, Zedds’ ‘Clarity’, and ‘Stay’ by Rihanna. But as good as it is to find mellow takes on popular songs, it’s even more rewarding to discover hidden gems from artist you encounter for the first time, like this unique jam from UK producer Congi. Sometimes it only takes one song to fall in love with an artist’s sound, and this is definitely one to do it. There is plenty more that can be written about this week, but is best experienced via the play button than any written word.

With all that said, make sure to explore everything on offer and reap the rewards of the dojo’s journey so far. Peace out.

[TMN PREMIERE] Carousel – Stay Awake (DotEXE Remix)

Not too long ago we had the pleasure of talking with Carousel at their show in Denver. Amongst other things, we of course discussed our favorite song of theirs, “Stay Awake.” The electro-pop single off of their upcoming EP has quickly become a favorite here at TMN headquarters.

Chicago based producer DotEXE recently reached out to Carousel to put his own take on “Stay Awake.” Jackson’s dreamy vocals and the soft electronic undertones make a perfect backdrop for a dubstep remix, and that’s exactly what DotEXE has created. Elements of the original song shine though the build providing a melodic experience. But, DotEXE puts his signature style all over this remix with an absolutely devastating drop, and masterful vocal sampling.

[Mad Decent] Major Lazer – LAZER STRIKES BACK Vol. 1

 If you were looking forward to the new Major Lazer album as much as we were, I’m sure you were disappointed to find out that it was delayed until next month. Of course that doesn’t mean we go empty handed because they have just posted the first volume of LAZER STRIKES BACK , a three part series of remixes. Jack Beats throws his signature sound over the Major Lazer - Flux Pavillion bass monster “Jah No Partial”. YellowClaw‘s “Get Free Money Remix” was in our very first Trap Dojo. The Hardstyle influenced “Original Don” gets an old school Techno feel with a huge emotional electro finale. The final song is the Major Lazer extended remix of Hot Chip‘s “Look At Where We Are”.

[TMN Resident Artist] Nilson & The 8th Note vs Third Party ft Red Hot Chili Peppers – Otherside (3LAU Edit)

Talk about one hell of a mashup.

This week, 3LAU decided to share with all his TMN fans his exclusive mashup of a Red Hot Chili Peppers classic “Otherside”. No one else has this and we have to say, we feel pretty honored he decided to share it with us. 3LAU takes the ever popular song and puts his own spin on the song adding in some electric sound waves followed by body dancing upbeat melodies. It’s like 3LAU is taking listeners from one side of the spectrum with this song to the complete opposite and he does it well. It is hard for any artist to take such a popular hit and make it into a really good electronic mashup but 3LAU does not disappoint with this. So turn up the speakers and enjoy a new version of the RHCP, EDM style.
