Marika Hackman [TMN Resident Artist for February]

Marika Hackman by Pip for Dirty Hit Records
Marika Hackman ft. Sivu

We’ve been featuring some top notch artists over the past year. From Thomas Gold to Martin Garrix, some very well known names have had their pictures up on the walls of our Residency page, proudly holding a place in TMN infamy. Today we’re excited to bring you one of our favorite artists as of late, bringing an entire new look and feel to what we’ve been doing.

Marika Hackman has captivated our hearts and ears with releases like “Cinnamon,” “Wolf,” and our all time favorite, “Bath is Black.’ Hailing from Selbourne, Hampshire, this quirky, yet lovable youngster is not only the first non-dance music Resident Artist on TMN, she’s also the first female Resident Artist we’ve had.

Her style is unique, meticulously fusing hazy, and often ominous soundscapes. Her woefully soft vocal range is something darkly comforting, providing listeners with a unexpected consolation. Often backed by psychedelic folk strumming, her sound uniquely goes against the grain of pop music, while still embracing a welcoming familiarity that allows the listener to connect in the same way they would with their favorite pop tunes.

As much as we could say about the depth of this young musician’s artistry, we’d rather let a full month of features do the talking. So sit back, and enjoy four weeks of our first female Resident Artist.

[Sexy] Shlohmo & Jeremih – No More

No More
Shlohmo & Jeremih
No More

Eclectic, lo-fi producer Shlohmo and R&B crooner Jeremih have a unique chemistry that has already brought us some of the most impressive new age slow jams with “F U all the Time” and “Bo Peep”. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, the duo team up once again for a glitchy, more solemn sounding cut full of longing and sexual tension. Even with its darker tone, “No More” makes for a great V-Day anthem suitable for reproductive activities, but also perfect for anyone feeling a streak of loneliness. Peep above and head over to NPR Music for a free download.

[TMN Video Premiere] Angela Ricci – Lazy Love

Lazy Love

Well, there is a certain holiday this Friday that has to do with lots of, well, love.

So what better then to premiere a video that embraces all that is love or more, the simplicity of a lazy love between two people?
Today we have the pleasure of premiering Miss Angela Ricci’s video for her song ‘Lazy Love’. A beautiful slow paced song with a whimsical in-love feeling throughout the whole piece, the video balances out the song quite nicely. Filmed in all black and white, the visuals portray the ballad’s nostalgic essence where Ricci promenades through the cobbled streets in an Italian city. A very Hepburn-like feel, this video tasks listeners back to the basics when it comes to love: what the girl is thinking, what the guy is thinking, what they do when they are apart and when they are together. So wherever you are this Friday, and everyday after, may you always feel a bit of this kind of lazy love with that special someone.

[Hip-Hop] Common – Made In Black America (Feat. Ab-Soul) (Prod. No I.D.)

Made In Black America Ft. Ab-Soul

In the lead-up to his upcoming album, Nobody’s Smiling, Common seems as hungry as ever, determined to prove that he’s still one of the most vicious lyricists in the game. Bridging the generational gap with his latest effort, the Chitown spitter goes toe-to-toe with the young cat, Ab-Soul, who’s more than capable of holding his own with the rap legend. “Made In Black America” is a gritty, streetwise production that features both emcees reflecting on their experiences growing up in the streets, while still weaving in some indelible punchlines bursting with bravado. Listen to the track above, and keep on the lookout for more from Com and No I.D. when the album drops later this year.

[House] Armand Van Helden & Hervé – Power Of Bass

Armand Van Helden & Hervé
'Power Of Bass'

It may be the nostalgic house purist in me, but every single time a new track from Armand Van Helden is unveiled, it inspires visions of the early NYC house scene and just how much the man had to do with it. On Van Helden’s latest tune “Power of Bass”, a collaboration with Cheap Thrills label boss Hervé, it is apparent that the Grammy nominated producer hasn’t slowed down in the slightest, especially if you’ve followed he and A-Trak’s Duck Sauce project. “Power of Bass”, is a monster of a future house tune, kicking off almost immediately with a throwback synth line that only artists in the genre with as much experience as these two could put over; but also draws from their current contemporary takes on four-four dance rhythms. Carefully layed swells and high energy hi-hats fuel its heart, and when they’re paired with such a choice bassline, as a listener there is no other choice but to start twerking your proverbial stuff. The colossal club track is forthcoming from the almighty Ministry of Sound Recordings out of the U.K., but for now we’re happy to have you ninjas listen to it here. Check out Armand Van Helden and Hervé’s joint jam “Power of Bass” above.
