YOUNG (Mickey Valen Radio Edit)
We’ve had a full on musical man crush on AYER since posting his debut track, “Circle Down.” That man crush definitely escalated once we heard the whimsical nature of “Young.” Something about those vocals have captured our attention, and we’ll be damned if they won’t let go.
Right before the start of 2014, AYER’s producer, Mickey Valen (also known for his work with long-time TMN favorite NOOSA) dropped a light-hearted radio mix of “Young.” We know when we missed the boat on something, and not being able to get this post up definitely left us running down the dock yelling, “God dammit.”
The gorgeous piano work and uplifting dance beats flirt perfectly with the vocals, which would have been the perfect fit for an after midnight track on New Years. None the less, this interpretation will still crawl under your skin in all the best ways.
I’m just trying to have some fun.
Simply put and musically articulated. This statement, from LA based Licoln Jesser’s facebook page, sums up what you can expect to hear through his musical exploration.
Word on the street is, Jesser has an EP coming out on an undisclosed label this year. While we don’t have much more information than that, we can assure you that these two tracks will be included. First up in this dastardly duo of infectious indie pop is “Tops.” With light hearted snaps separating soaring synths and a funky bassline, Jesser has created a catchy tune that’s worthy of late nights, winding down after a night after the bars.
In a slightly more upbeat nature, “Something Right,” has a classic 80’s pop feel, boasting Jesser’s downplayed vocals. The beat is dancy, finding itself in compliment to the myriad of synthesizers.
After these first two tunes, we’re admittedly anxious to hear the rest of this upcoming EP. Make sure you keep an eye out. This one will be one not to miss.

With Me ( LCAW Remix )
Cashmere Cat has come and captured the adoration of the blogosphere, and everyone pretty much understands why. His unique style harnessing non traditional dance structures, atmospheric elements and meticulously placed instrumentals are overwhelmingly impressive. While us bloggers salivate at a new release of his, producers do as well, eager to put their spin on his tunes.
Today we’re featuring a chilled out house remix from German producer LCAW. The intro is dreamy, slowly welcoming you into his interpretation of “With Me.” The pianos gracefully carry over the sultry beats, creating a gorgeous soundscape. While the song never breaks into intense energy, it has a soulful vibe that calls to be danced to.
This remix is a free download. We suggest you pick it up right about now.
SBTRKT spent a good amount of time in 2013 teasing us with some of the new sounds he was experimenting with in the studio. While that trend hasn’t quite changed yet, he has chosen to unearth some of his older material. “Runaway” is a track that he’s used in sets dating back to at least 2012, and one that he apparently used to close out his New Year’s set as well. Sparse on details, what we do know about the track is that it features vocals from the talented Jessie Ware, with Sampha echoing in the background. Although the track is barely over a minute, it’s still incredibly beautiful. Here’s hoping we get to hear a much longer version sometime in the near future. Stream the track above, and stay tuned for SBTRKT’s sophomore effort, which should be dropping soon.
Step (Wintertime Remix) (Feat. Danny Brown, Heems & Despot)
With every new year comes new expectations, but there’s no way we could’ve ever seen this coming. After putting out one of the best albums of 2013, Vampire Weekend are back with a “Wintertime Remix” to their remarkable single, “Step,” bringing along Danny Brown, Heems and Despot for the ride. The beat remains relatively unaltered, yet all three emcees fit in gracefully over the tranquil indie rock ballad, making this one of the best cross genre efforts we’ve heard in quite awhile. One day in, and 2014 already looks like a bright year for music. Check out the stream above, and make it your resolution to grab a free download as well.
