Since releasing their self-titled second album in January, Aer have been busy selling out shows and earning themselves spots at major music festivals, Outside Lands being the most recent announcement. Earlier this week, the Boston-bred, genre-fusing duo released some visuals for one of our favorite songs from the album, “Watever We Want,” and they come right in time for summer. The video takes David and Carter back in time with Adidas jumpsuits among other hilarious outfits as they trash a house with some ferocious looking dogs. The fun and goofy feel match the song’s positive energy making it perfect for a sunny Saturday afternoon, as always with Aer. Enjoy the video below and make sure to check our exclusive interview with Aer from a few months back to learn some more about these up ‘n comers.
We’ve been searching long and hard for that one song that encompasses everything Summer represents. With such great music coming out each and every week, the search has become almost too challenging for our taste, however, despite those grueling efforts, our team here at TMN is happy to announce that we have officially broken our dry spell with the Summer anthem of 2014 and would like to generously give the winning song to Long-Island musician, Saint Pepsi.
Saint Pepsi, otherwise known as Ryan DeRobertis, is one of those artists that synth-fully blends together nostalgia, love, and cognitive dissonace. His music makes your subconscious process the emotive value of his words, but your body is forcing you to dance through the conflicting thought patterns. Talk about a pickle to be in.
Just recently, Saint Pepsi signed with Carpark Records and released his debut single, “Fiona Coyne”. Shifting into more of the indie-pop realm of production, he has taken his sound and redefined everything we know and understand what it means to be elevated to new heights. With the release of this track and with new music on the horizon, Saint Pepsi is preparing us all for what may be the end of the internet as we know it.
“Fiona Coyne” was inspired by a character from an old Canadian teen drama, Degrassi: The Next Generation, in which Saint Pepsi expresses the idea that music is capable of sparking romance in places we may not deem possible. The concept alone has a much more intrinsic value beneath it, but on the surface, this song has an addicting melody, a funky beat, and some adorable nostalgic lyrics to match the summery, groovy vibe. Saint Pepsi has pushed pop-culture into a more positive limelight and “Fiona Coyne” is proof that artistry and eclecticism still exist in our world. We think he has definitely fulfilled his ambitious goal of “creating pop music for freaks”, so why don’t you press play and re-kindle that flame between you and your soul because you might just find yourself floating amidst the clouds.
Pre-Order Fiona Coyne here – Out next month on Carpark Records
We absolutely love when we stumble upon those tracks that make us want to boogy ourselves back into the 80’s synth days full of big hair, bold colors, and a pair of black lungs to match our chainsmoking alter-egos. These scenario-inspired tracks are difficult to execute and extremely rare to come across, however, we always seem to find them because we are ninjas and we have been training for this moment our entire lives.
Disco duo and groove masters, Televisor, recently unleashed their inner diva personas with a new original, “Neon”. This track is the perfect song for any occasion, whether you’re BBQing with your friends at a pool party or you’re getting ready to watch an intense episode of Cops – you can pretty much choose you’re own setting and it will be suitable no matter what. With its strong synth lead and Nu-Disco flow, Televisor takes us on an intense journey back to a time most of us didn’t even exist (instead we act as if we did and call it a day). If you love 80s synths and some Daft Punk vibes, then “Neon” is going to rock your boat more than anything else out on the internet today.
So before you prepare to watch multiple re-runs of “VH1: I Love the 80’s”, make sure to grab those dancin’ shoes, tease your hair the Farrah Fawcett way, and bump this tune all the way up because you’re about to experience a blast from the past.
It’s that time of week again where the sun is shinin’, the birds are chirpin’, and the turn up is about to get completely real. Whether you’re still sitting in your cubicle at work or just anxiously awaiting to go out with friends, we’ve got a badass FPP to prepare you for an epic weekend full of dancing and poor decision-making. We decided to hook all of you up with 15 twerk-worthy tracks because 10 songs just doesn’t seem to be enough for you party animals. We love finding anthems and you love to party – sounds like this is going to work out between us.
So crank up the volume and get yourself some crunk juice, ninjas, because the party starts now.
Until next week, yo.

A few months ago we had the pleasure interviewing Insomniac Record’s very first signee when he came to play at Beta Nightclub. After previously seeing this young Russian artist play at Red Rocks and at Ultra Music Festival, we were eager to fire off a few choice questions before his set.
Check out what ARTY had to say about the scene in Russia, what signing with Insomniac meant to him, and home-cooked meals from his mom.
TMN: Hey Arty, thank you so much for taking some time to sit down with us today. First up let’s talk about your latest release, “Up All Night”. Talk to us about the process heading into this track, working with vocalist Angel Taylor.
’ARTY – UP ALL NIGHT ft. Angel Taylor (teaser)’
ARTY: I was sitting in the studio with two songwriters (Toby Gad and Angel Taylor) and I had this idea for the track. It basically was some harmony and stuff. We did the vocals in one day and when I got back to my place, I just finished the track. It was completely different than what we were expecting. It was nice and trancy at first, and in the end it turned into something completely unique. I’m really excited about it.
TMN: This is also your first release on the newly launched Insomniac Records, which you’re also the first artist signed to that label. What does it mean to be on a label that’s backed by one of the biggest names in EDM?
ARTY: Well, Insomniac Events
as a team is not the actual team behind the label. It’s a venture of Interscope
. So, a lot of people are from Interscope
. You get both from best worlds: people from Interscope
, which is the most successful label in the entire world, and people from Insomniac events, which is one of the most succesful festival promoters.
Pasquale (Rotella) is like a superhero. He’s like a rock star. He’s super passionate, and it’s not a decision of signing the biggest names. I’ve had a lot of meetings with this guy and I’m confident he’ll be a big part of working on the album and what comes next.
"Let This Last Forever" ft Gary Go (Sunstars Remix)
You’re probably at the end of a long, exhausting week, and the first thing you said this morning was “ho bisogno un caffe.” Well, skip the espresso machine and get ready for a full dose of electro house induced energy, courtesy of Parma-born Andrea, Luigi, and Alberto, the three members of Sunstars.
As if I didn’t have enough reasons for loving Parma, what with the prosciutto, and all, I now have three more with this up-and-coming DJ/Producer trio. With only one official release out to date, we were admittedly excited to bring you a relatively unknown act, and what better way to do so than with a remix of another fellow countryman, the legendary Mr. Benny Benassi.
Dropping on today via Ultra Records, “Let This Last Forever” boasts Benassi’s beloved signature sound. Coupled with Gary Go’s inspiring, summertime lyrics, some acoustic strumming and a soaring melody, this is sure to please dance fans across the globe.
With such infectious lyrics, it’s only natural to expect a remix package to follow, and we’re lucky enough to bring you one of those tracks here. Sunstars takes this tune out of the festival fields and drops it straight into the club with a supercharged electro house drop. The energy is undeniable, inciting whoever’s listening to stop what they’re doing and “danza!”
Alright, ninjas. We’ve been hooking you up with free entry to Beta over the past year. We know you’ve have some epic times, catching some of the most legendary talent EDM has to offer, and we’re on board to keep this thing going. So, we’re once again giving you an opportunity to check out the best night club in North America for free. What all do you have to do to get in? It’s pretty damn easy. Just follow these steps:
– Head to the front door and enter the club before 11 pm
– Show this post to the cashier (Valid for 21+ only)
That’s it! Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it’s not. Head to Beta and see for yourself.
