Jarred A.G. – Frequency (Feat. Carl) (Prod. Jay Retro) [TMN PREMIERE]

Jarred A.G.
FREQUENCY F/ Carl (Prod. Jay Retro)

While we typically reserve songs this soulful for Sundays, we couldn’t help but share this latest single from Jarred A.G. with you all today. Veering from the typical grungy, streetwise anthems we’ve grown accustomed to, the hardened emcee gives us a glimpse of his sensitive side on this smooth Jay Retro produced cut. Featuring a guest verse from Carl (of Hurt Everybody), “Frequency” is exactly the type of mellow track you’d want to tune into during an afternoon break, just as you’ve wrapped up lunch and begin contemplating your plans for the evening. It also proves once again, that Jarred is not one to be slept on, and if you’re like us, you’ll have replayed his verse at least a few times by the end of the day (his singing voice isn’t half bad either).

Stream the single above, and look out for more details on Jarred’s CANVAS LP, set to drop later this year.

[Synth/Indie-Pop] Little Dragon – Let Go

Little Dragon
Let Go

We’ve been following Little Dragon‘s every move leading up to the release of their fourth official long player, and this morning the Swedish dance-poppers have unveiled a third single off of Nabuma Rubberband. “Let Go” is a slow burning slice of melodic pop, leaning on a stripped down, sultry Yukimi Nagano vocal and subdued percussion; which to the delight of their purist fans falls more in line with the minimal dance sound of their debut self-titled album than the sticky-sweet electro-bounce the world at large has fallen for. Regardless, this one will no doubt find its way into the hearts of Little Dragon fans both old and new with its beautiful instrumentation and obvious crossover shine. We simply can’t contain our collective excitement around here for the album’s official release date of May 13 and subsequent live tour, so if you happen to vacate one of the lucky cities on their next jaunt, we highly recommend you don’t skip on the chance to be whisked into a gorgeous Little Dragon live set. Stream “Let Go” above.

No Rest For The Wicked (Remix)

Subscribers to Beats Music were treated to a pleasant surprise earlier today, when Lykke Li decided to stream the remix of her single, “No Rest For The Wicked,” exclusively through the audio service. This is the internet though, and nothing stays exclusive for very long. Within hours, fans who previously felt left out, could now hear the glorious pairing that is A$AP Rocky and Lykke Li. For Rocky, it’s the latest in a string of heart-stirring pop collaborations that already includes previous team ups with GesaffelsteinJessie Ware and Florence Welch. By adding a little street flair to the already astonishing single, the Harlem native makes the song more accessible to a wider audience, without hurting its overall message.

Check out the stream above, and make sure to pre-order Lykke Li’s upcoming album, I Never Learn, before it hits shelves stateside on May 6th.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #81

chill dojo

There’s no better way to wind down the long weekend than lounging about with with a dose of chill music, and we just so happen to have a stack of quality tunes to share for playlist #81. If you caught our new Kygo post from earlier in the week, then it’s really no surprise to be seeing his name atop this list. Kygo + Benjamin Francis Leftwich is just the perfect combination to be happening in music right now, and we hope there’s plenty more of this to come. Thankfully he’s not the only artist to be dabbling in these sweet vocals, as we’ve got another Chill Dojo favorite in Manila Killa providing more summertime vibes with that same floating sensation crafted throughout. We’ve never pictured Norway as a tropical destination, but you could easily be fooled by the glorious sounds consistently pumped out by its artists. Bearson’s remix of “Savanna” certainly hits the sweet spot as far as this style goes, serving as your musical portal straight into the isles of the Caribbean. From there, we shift gear straight into the some future beats from Jonah Baseball. There’s not much out there we can tell you on this new name in the scene, but he’s got support from Lindsay Lowend, and his newest release ‘Louisville Slugger’ is straight fire, so by that token we’re firmly in his team as well. As far as other new names go, the music collective Moving Castle has just brought out a fresh compilation overflowing with insane future sounds, so be prepared for the next four tracks to wow your ears like you wouldn’t believe. Sydney producer UNO Stereo will continue that feeling with his bouncey remix of ‘Dreams’, not only delivering a killer instrumental but masterfully molding in the band’s vocals to his style. Add his name to your list of Australian artists to follow with close attention. Speaking of attention, ‘Latch’ remixes have certainly been a hot topic over the past week, and Maryland’s MisterMack has given us one of the best with his slick interpretation. Flowing through different styles and emotions, this version will capture your full attention and have your body grooving for an experience that is a natural human response to musical genius like this. We end this week’s write-up with one of the smoothest sounds to hit the blogosphere this week in the form of ‘Foolish’ from UK duo Blonde. Ryan Ashley serves up some stunning vocal work over some serious poolside vibes, making this one a certified jam to be played out across the warmer months.

This all comes together as the perfect pick-me-up to get you going again after the weekend’s festivities. As for us, the search for good music never stops. Peace out.
