[Synth-Pop] Gentlemen Hall – Sail Into the Sun

Into the sun indeed. This ditty from Gentleman Hall is everything that is missing when submersed in the dead of winter. The track brings to mind the pleasantries of warmth and the happy-go-lucky freedom of summer living. While the sun may be hiding more often these days, your free spirit doesn’t have to. “Sail Into the Sun” is a that much needed little dose of fun. Dancing synth rhythms and upbeat vocal melody make the tune a great three-and-a-half-minute adventure.

This large Boston collective will be issuing their third studio album sometime in the near future. Stay tuned. Until then, enjoy this free single.

Flux Pavilion – The Scientist [Preview]

Flux Pavillion needs no introduction, and with the amount of coverage we have been posting, neither does his Blow The Roof EP. The highly anticipated collection of tracks may very well become the best electronic album of 2013, having already previewed tracks like Blow The Roof, OneTwoThree, Starlight and Do or Die feating Childish Gambino.

Today we bring you another sample of what to expect out of this prolific English dubstep producer. ‘The Scientist’ is perhaps the most genre fusing track that among slow boiling wobbles and reactive vocals, it features a relaxing almost glitch/hop vibe with a non-chaotic dubstep foundation.

[Rap] Nickelus F – Number 15 feat. Drake

Nickelus F is a seasoned vet in the rap game. Rapping and writing with Canadian native Drake, it is safe to say that he is one of the most underrated talents in the game right now. With his new single “Number 15″, he reunites with the OVOXO leader on this darker Jake One production. Speaking on making it and remaining focus, this bonus track is a nice cut from the Virginia MC’s new mixtape Vices.

[TMN Premiere] Francisco The Man – In the Corners

On “In The Corners”, LA-based Francisco the Man pick at various genres, combining all the best elements of scruffy indie rock, good vibin’ surf-pop and even biting punk. From the wailing guitars and yelping vocals, to the lo-fi bouncy sheen and fun little “ooh ooh ooh” outro, the track reads like dynamic and catchy raucousness, and is satisfying on a whole bunch of levels. Check it out below and be sure to pick up the band’s In The Corners 7″, due out Spring 2013 via Small Plates.

[Hip-Hop] Alexander Spit – Artesia feat. Action Bronson

Hitting the webs this week is the rising wordsmith, Alexander Spit, dropping a new banger titled “Artesia”. Bringing in a different atmospheric vibe with some vocal samples backed up by drum rips give this track an old school, smooth vibe on this self-produced single. Teaming up with NY emcee Action Bronson, the two deliver some lyrically witty and sick bars about the common elements of weed, women, and women that compliment the feel of the track. The throwback sound of the bars mixed with the psychedelic production make this a solid effort from the LA based emcee. Be sure to check out the track below and listen to more when his first commercial full-length drops January 29th.

Bass Kleph feat Ron E Jones – Flashing Lights Remix EP

Australian jack-of-all-trades, Stu Tyson, aka Bass Kleph does not produce music. He creates experiences. His earliest gigs (even as ex-drummer in a hard rock band) demonstrated a special gift that many artists would kill to posses. Bass Kleph was able to pull in huge crowds, consistently, and give them exactly what they came in for: a fucking good time. And while a lot has happened since he began, producing some of the best dance bangers and reaching Beatport #1 countless of time, it is still important to point out this very fact because it is reflected in his music. Each song is not just made to be listened to, but deliberately crafted to consume both the body and the mind. When you hear a Bass Kleph track, you know you are in for a good time.

This, of course, brings us to his latest release “Flashing Lights”. This single ultimately exposes both the growth and maturity Stu has come as producer. With a silky smooth build up, in part due to vocalist with Ron E, “Flashing Lights” soon transforms into a modern dance floor anthem incorporating harmonic synths and a powerful stomping basslines.

Taking things one step further, Aussie producer Bobby Vena comes in to give the track a more progressive house feel, while Hot Creations’ Bubba executes a deep remix much calmer in nature.
