Benjamin Francis Leftwich
Atlas Hands (Thomas Jack Remix)
Thomas Jack continues to hold our attention and simultaneously impress with his unique execution of dance music. After featuring a series of his originals and remixes here on TMN, it is becoming apparent that the 2o year-old Australian is honing in on a sound that has been nothing short of purely infectious; already placing five tracks at #1 on the Hype Machine charts. It appears a little part of his rhythmic and tropical house melodies are crossing over to an insurmountable number of listeners, and his latest remix of Benjamin Francis Leftwich‘s elegant indie-folk ballad “Atlas Hands” again avows a special ability to reshape any genre into a dance floor appropriate cut. Once more, it is a keen sense of classical production combined with the use of orchestral instruments to create a house structure- a pan flute, acoustic guitar and violin in this case – which separates Thomas Jack from most of his young contemporaries. At least for now, before the avalanche of hype behind the young producer becomes too much, all of Thomas Jack’s library has been given away for free and this remix of “Atlas Hands” follows suit. Head on over and pick it up here ninjas, you won’t regret it.
A tip of the virtual cap to all of those smokey voiced classics from yesteryear. Bo Saris has successfully done just that, providing us with a soulful tune that would be respected back in the day, as well as any soul lover in 2013.
This London based crooner has skills that most guys would kill for, casually draping love enriched lyrics over familiar instrumentation. “Little Bit More,” is his most recent, dropping just three days ago. Take a listen, and get taken back to a simpler time.
There’s nothing more exciting than hearing that artist that makes you stop and say, “who’s that?” You know the one we’re talking about. The one that stops you dead in your tracks, leaving you fumbling through your pockets in a feeble attempt to open your iPhone. Today though, there’s no need to bring out the Shazam app. For a lot of you, this will be one of those bands, and luckily for you – we’re here to share it with you.
Dropping just a month ago, London based indie rockers We the Wild have accomplished a handsomely constructed EP, comprised of four ear and heart catching tunes. With an infectious blend of traditional pop structure, classic rock, blues and electronica, we’re instantly intrigued.
First up on the EP is one of our favorites, “You Lost My Mind,” is comprised of light tickling of the ivories, finger blistering guitar bends and love centric lyrics. Between the electronic, repitious percussions and the distorted vocals of the lead singer, this tune is all set for the repeat button.
Our other favorite on the EP (not taking anything away from the other fantastic tracks) is the ever-so-catchy pop tune, “Body Electric Blue,” which calls on associations like Imagine Dragons and X Ambassadors. It’s buzzing with familiarity, yet still maintains it’s own unique personality.
This EP is solid front to back. Don’t take our word for it though – press play and start enjoying for yourself.

You Got Me (Original Mix)
You got me TastyTreat, plain and simple.
The California duo recently released their latest original track ‘You Got Me’, a upbeat electronic melody full of everything piano.
This lighthearted song is just the type of love song everyone needs to hear on a daily basis. TastyTreat plays around with a few light drops and some electronic sounds that keep this song on a constant moving level. The duo shows they know exactly what it feels like when a person has that one person who truly gets them, and they lay it down in this fabulous track.

Kaleida is an electronic duo composed of Christina Wood (vocals) an Cicely Goulder (keys and production). Their first EP ‘Think’ is set for release in December of this year and in expectation they have released their lead and title track ‘Think’. Wood has stunning vocals, a low voice that commands attention, she can make the lyrics come across however she so chooses. Goulder has an ear for the beat and carries the melody of this song with her electronic beats and her love of synthesizers. The duo shows they have a unique sound in all good ways. Keep an eye out for their full EP later next month.
