Take Me Away (Featuring Jilian) (Free Download)
Today, PatrickReza dropped an original song “Take Me Away” featuring Jilian. The song is full of everything Reza, a beautiful seductive melody with the right amount of electric drops and intense beats to carry this song far away. Jilian’s voice is one that we can expect to hear on more tracks, she has a delicate alto sound with a delicate tenderness to her singing. Reza’s song flows from each measure with the right sound to make the listener feel like they are being taken away with each sound.
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
Life Is Hard (Teen Daze Remix)
The hippie-inspired collective that is Edwarde Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros is always a great change of pace for those looking for something more organic and free spirited. While their music does not generally lend itself to the more electronic remixes, Vancouver-based producer Teen Daze has managed to flip the emotional “Life is Hard” into a 6-minute airy and ambient masterpiece. The remix features an extended intro using only a brief soundbyte of the original and it’s not until the three minute mark that the vocals of Alex Ebert make a brief, warped appearance. Despite a drastically different sound, this rework seems to communicate a similar sentiment as Ed Sharpe’s original.
Teen Daze’s take on “Life is Hard” floats along with only a subtle build-up creating a surreal ambiance perfect for zoning out the perils of your week. Enjoy and grab a free download of this meditative track above.
Calling all ghosts and witches and cowboys and peacocks.

Come Thru (James Blake Version)
Just when you thought those Drake remixes were finally slowing down, we get this brand new revision of “Come Thru” courtesy of James Blake. While the original was a little too playful for my tastes, Blake’s rework adds a sense of urgency to the track, especially when the ominous synths kick in around the one minute mark where Drizzy begins his verse. Of course the transformation wouldn’t be complete without Blake adding in his own backing vocals, which compliment the dark overtones added through his production. Check out the tune above, and let us know your thoughts. Hopefully this means we’re one step closer to hearing that collaboration between the two artists we’ve all been anxiously waiting for.
Rarely does the concept of pairing musically polar opposites pan out as both artists had intended, but the instrumental fraternization between electronic producer Max Cooper and classical composer Tom Hodge has resulted in a beautifully unique grouping of tracks. The first half of their joint effort, entitled the Fragmented Self pt. 1 EP is forward thinking music to say the least, beginning with the title track, which combines Hodge’s contemporary orchestrations with Max Cooper’s glitchy and confrontational cut up samples of the very same movements. At first listen “Fragmented Self” may come off as a bit rough, but when truly dissected is some of the more ambitious and exploratory music crafted within the last few years. Following up is “Von Der Klippe Fallen”, which again couples tech heavy warehouse elements with classical piano and a scooting bassline; while ending tune “Quantet” (also available as a free download) plays as the most melodic of the bunch, employing a dreamy synth charge behind a wall of refined strings. If your palate for music functions as the type which needs to be pushed and challenged, Fragmented Self pt. 1 should absolutely be worthy of a few jog-throughs. Stream Max Cooper & Tom Hodge’s first collaborative EP in its entirety below.

Fyfe has already expressed his disdain for deceit once before, but it seems like he wasn’t quite finished with the topic. Hammering his point home for a second time, this sequel takes a much more minimalist approach than the original, with the UK crooner’s vocals floating seamlessly over a nearly vacant, serene ambient backdrop. It’s a truly beautiful song, and yet another gem to add to the London native’s excellent collection. Check out the single above, and make sure to grab yourself a free download of this wonderful tune.
In our lifetime, it’s inevitable we will be placed in many, many awkward and uncomfortable situations. It’s how we deal with that situation that really matters. For some of us, we’d rather crawl into a cave and avoid confrontation at all costs. For others, we take that shit head on. Cave dwellers take note. What more do we have to lose when we face that awkwardness like a Ninja? There is always a new day and one day, in the near or far future, we will probably look back and laugh. Hey…no pressure though…if you still feel like curling up into a ball until the moment passes, let the Indie Dojo be your security blanket. It’s the least we can do….
