[Disco/Pop] Lemaitre – Wait feat. LOLO

Wait feat. LOLO

While we might be a few days late to the party on this one, there was just no way we couldn’t feature Oslo electro-pop troupe Lemaitre and their latest single “Wait”; which features an alluring vocal from LOLO. A single from their forthcoming EP Singularity , due out tomorrow, July 22; “Wait” jumps off immediately with a subdued funk-guitar riff and classic piano stabs before bursting open behind LOLO’s exquisitely primed vocal track and huge snare kick. Structurally Lemaitre employs a very pop leaning backbone, but just past the tune’s halfway point, a heavy, but welcome dose of electro synth ushers in a high energy apex that meshes just wonderfully with LOLO’s infectious chorus. There just is simply nothing we can do but start dancing along to this one, which is also the reason it’s a Monday must have today. Lemaitre’s Singularity EP drops via Astralwerks, also home to Porter Robinson, Mat Zo and more TMN favorites, so be ready to get your hands on this one tomorrow.

Remember our posts about the Orlando duo dominating the Jersey Club scene, Vices? Well one of the producers from Vices has another duo, DVNK SINATRV, and they have been getting recognition from artists like Diplo. I’m not too much of an early riser; I typically wake up around two in the afternoon, so when I wake up, I like to get hype to some bangers to get the blood flowing. This track will get your head banging, and you might even create a new viral dance move to it. Make sure that you follow them on soundcloud and facebook, because first and foremost their music is dope, but they do some cool give-aways now and again.

TeamMate – Goldmine [TMN PREMIERE]


There is an endless supply of inspirational quotes we could use to lead you into TeamMate’s story. You know those quotes. They’re the ones that your friends post on your timeline or text to you when you’ve gone through a rough experience. The funny thing is, these quotes have a strong ring of truth in this particular situation.

– It’s always darkest before dawn.
– Everything happens for a reason.
– Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all

Spawning out of an unlikely situation, Scott Simons and Dani Buncher founded this two-piece indie pop act out of a break up. It all started when the two, who were boyfriend and girlfriend for a decade, were talking about growing old together. At that time, Dani felt the need to admit something, coming out to her long time boyfriend. Fast forward four years, and an intense connection and mutual love for making music helped them revive and rework their relationship, which is what we’re witnessing with TeamMate.

If we couldn’t be partners, we were going to be teammates. – Scott Simons

Today’s release is following on the heels of “Don’t Count Me Out” which featured a novel approach to sharing their lyrics with their fans via Souncloud comments. While that was an impressive way to engage fans with their music, today is all about “Goldmine,” which is a synth-driven thrill ride worth listening to on repeat.

With soaring synths harmonizing perfectly with Simons’ vocals, this song sports an intense and energetic tempo carried by Buncher’s percussion work. Fast-paced hi-hat hits mixed in over rolling toms making this song the antithesis of laid back indie rock, taking on a delightfully charged-up synth pop persona instead. The end result is something noteworthy, drawing on comparisons of Matt and Kim, Passion Pit, and The Naked and Famous.

One can’t help but get completely taken away in the engaging pop structure, easily envisioning enjoying this infectious anthem at one of the many festivals that this duo is sure to be getting booked at in the near future.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #93

chill dojo

As chill as this dojo is, we all need a holiday once in a while, and thankfully Ninjette Brooke was kind enough to step in during my break to make sure that the vibes kept flowing. Let’s pick up exactly where we left off and launch back into some of the best new music that has this summer thriving.

There’s no better style than tropical tunage to get things going, and no better man than Viceroy to kick-start this sun-drenched playlist. Now you’d be forgiven for anticipating the lyrics of Nicki Minaj to enter after hearing the first few chords of ‘The Life’, but thankfully it’s the sweet vocals of Penguin Prison that greet us in this 2014 anthem from Mr “Summertime All the Time”. This is the quintessential track for any beach party this year, no questions asked, but would you have expected anything less when these two names combine? I may have been on a break for a little while, but Oliver Nelson is a man who never stops pumping out one tropical gem after the next. His fiendish disco frenzy continues with his latest remix of ‘Busy Baby’, complete with those trademark slapping drums that never fail to induce some serious head bopping. Long Beach duo LBCK are another group geared up for a big summer this year, and they’re firing things up with a remix of a burning classic from Mariah Carey. The perfect combo of soul, funk and warm groove make for one hell of a start to their campaign, and it’s one we’ll watch with eager eyes.

It just wouldn’t be a summer playlist without a good showing of some Norwegian talent, and once again Bearson demonstrates that he has it in spades with another mind-blowing remix. We knew this brand of mellow house would make him blow up very soon, and we’re sure it won’t be too much longer at all before he reaches the heights he deserves. Not to be outdone, fellow countryman Matoma is another Scandinavian superstar who wields a nu-disco vibe to be revered. No stranger to a golden hip-hop acapella, his latest slice of paradise is seamless in its treatment of those untouchable lyrics, and will ensure they’re enjoyed for countless years to come. While we’re talking about stunning revivals, this Damian Marley cover from EFIX will take things to a whole new level of chill. With amazing control and pace, every minute of this delightful journey will take you to a completely new place, and is truly a marvel in musical construction. That guitar and violin partnership is absolutely mesmerizing. Rounding out this wrap-up is the latest bootleg magic from DJ AA, which hits all the right notes in its use of Sam Smith together with some dance-floor heat from 1up.

Whether you’re gunning for a holiday or just the weekend, this playlist will set the mood right to get you there. Peace out.

[R&B] The Weeknd – King Of The Fall

The Weeknd
King Of The Fall

While most of us are still deeply entrenched in our summer mindsets here in the middle of July, The Weeknd as always, is already a few steps ahead, anointing himself as the “King Of The Fall.” Though we’re not quite sure what comes with that title, the song is clearly meant to coincide with his four city tour of the same name that’s set to begin two months from now. If you’re wondering why exactly Abel can afford the crown, look no further than the track itself, in which he proceeds to describe his enviable lifestyle–full of his usual quips about women, drugs and fame. With the amount of quality material the talented singer’s been releasing for free as of late, we’re inclined to recognize his regal status, especially if he decides to return to his mixtape roots at some point in the future. In the meantime, fans should keep this one on constant rotation as they prepare for the shows with Jhené Aiko and ScHoolboy Q later this year.

[Electronic] Hopium – Dreamers ft. Phoebe Lou

Dreamers ft Phoebe Lou

The indefinite and beguiling Australian electro-double act, Hopium, first compelled listeners four months ago with their doleful debut song, “Cut.”  This week, they follow with their second single, “Dreamers,” graced by the unearthly vocals of former Snakadaktal, Phoebe Lou. With a vaporous intro, swelling synths, and soft spoken outro, the track lends both a hopeful, yet bleak soundscape.

It’s said that when you’re strung out and high on hopium, you’re clinging on the hope that what you’ve invested in will be in your favor, even when all the odds are stacked against you; and that’s exactly how this track feels. Take a listen. Maybe you can relate, along with thousands of new fans.
