Running Low Feat. Beth Ditto

To this very day, we simply cannot understand why drum and bass hasn’t made it’s way across the Atlantic. Paling in popularity to trap and dubstep, this long time dance genre has been around longer than some of the kids listening to it at festivals. While we can’t understand why more of us Yanks don’t take to it, we’ll keep pushing it until they do.

An easy bridge into the greatness that is drum and bass is none other than the legendary Netsky. This Antwerp-based DJ/Producer has been tossing up diamonds for quite some time now, even thrilling crowds at Coachella with a live instrumental interpretation of his classic tunes.

“Running Low” just dropped six days ago, and it’s already one of our favorites from this Belgium phenom. Featuring the booming soulful vocals from Beth Ditto, this tune has some solid Motown vibes intertwined with charging melodies, fast paced percussions and a electrifying bassline. It’s supercharged from head to toe, creating a drum and bass anthem that anyone can get behind.

This tune will be on Netsky’s upcoming album. Make sure to keep your eye open for it.

[Rap] Hoodie Allen – Nolan Ryan

Well, well, well. New York based half hip hop, half pop artist Hoodie Allen is hurling some fire, and he’s doing it just because he wanted to share something that he’s passionate about with his fans.

On the heels of his upcoming full-length album (due out in August) Hoodie recorded this in a hotel room in SLC while he was on tour. Utilizing a soulful backdrop fused with a monstrous bassline, the lady killer just drops a ridiculous four-verse rap that showcases his flow, even including a shout out to Chipotle. We’ll be expecting that sample on a Carnage track in the coming months.

Bout to make white girl money with burritos…what the fuck? Shouts to Chi-pot-le. Shouts to Chi-pot-le

While we know Hoodie will continue to do his poppier stuff, we’re admittedly grinning ear-to-ear at this change of pace.

[NEW] Lana Del Rey – West Coast (ZHU Remix)

lana

ZHU remixing Lana Del Rey‘s track “West Coast”. Pretty sure I could stop writing now, and you would still have this track on repeat. He drops his very funky upbeat vibes all throughout this one, with some flawless vocals and amazing chops and splices. All of that mixed with some very catchy synth work and it comes together for one of the flyest tracks ZHU has released to date. Cheers.

’ZHU x LANA DEL REY – West Coast.’

[Synth-Pop] Olympic Ayres – Control

Olympic Ayres
Control

There’s no denying that here at TMN we’ve been huge fans of the Australian indie scene in general with one of our favorite writers even residing Down Under, and behind such prominent labels like Future Classic and Popfrenzy it seems like every day we’re exposed to more exciting acts, most notably of the indie and synth-pop persuasion. Recently, behind prim and polished singles “Magic” and “Take Flight”, Sydney’s Olympic Ayres, have assumed their place as the undisputed apple of this writer’s eye… or ear for that matter, and their latest effort easily has worked its way onto our office playlist. “Control”, Kamaliza Salamba and Nathan Mifsud’s second single from impending debut EP Leisureplex, plays like a breezy slice of funk and disco fueled pop music. Behind what sounds a Nile Rodger’s leaning lead guitar, and a beautifully swung 80’s synth and bass line, “Control” is slightly more restrained than their past offerings but with the same amount of aural and emotional impact we’ve come to expect from the talented pair. Olympic Ayres debut EP Leisureplex is set for release Sept 17th stateside and on the 18th in Australia, and we’re hoping to get at least one more taste before its anticipated release. Stream “Control” above, and pick it up on iTunes here before we get to hear Leisureplex in its entirety.

Prince Fox
3LAU 'How You Love Me' Feat. Bright Lights (Prince Fox Remix)

A little over a month ago, Prince Fox unleashed what may have been the most hyphy remix of #SELFIE this year. With The Chainsmokers giving him the selfie stamp of approval for his festival trap anthem of the decade, Prince Fox is definitely one of those names that won’t be dying out anytime soon.┬áNotorious for throwing down some twerk-worthy beats, the New York based producer has predominately targeted his sound towards the trap side of the spectrum – until today.

Straying away from being labeled a one-genre-guru, Prince Fox has tirelessly been working on showcasing his eclecticism in his productions. Well ninjas, today we are very pleased to be premiering a new side of Prince Fox with his newest remix (and our favorite rendition) of “How You Love Me” by 3LAU. Headed in the Future Bass direction, Prince fox decided to give this track a much needed dose of trippy high hats and wavey water droplets to make this one of the most adorable songs of Summer. If this song doesn’t make you want to sensually groove with that significant other or have a snuggle fest with your cat, then you obviously need to re-think your definition of ‘cute’ because we pretty much have it down here at TMN. As we await the fox’s next round of fire, make sure you grab your free download so you can tie yourself over until then. So stop wondering what the fox says and jam out the rest of your day.

Kodacrome – Strike The Gold (Luke Neher Remix) [TMN PREMIERE]

KodacromeLight132

Bearing the moniker of a classic Paul Simon song and a Kodak product from the 30’s (with a slightly different spelling), Brooklyn-based Elissa & Ryan together form a up-and-coming project called Kodacrome. Featuring dreamy soundscapes and sultry subdued vocals, this duo made a splash two years ago with their EP, Perla. Since then, they’ve released a few other tracks, including a shimmering, electronic-soul tune called “Strike the Gold.”

With the calming synth-driven backdrop and Elissa’s understated vocals, we were eager to hear what a few remixers could do with these engaging elements. Coming from the land down under, Melbourne DJ/Producer Luke Neher, of Naysayer & Gilsun, has stepped up and re-interpreted “Strike the Gold,” giving it rich, textural elements and a slowly building synth progression to create a lo-fi pop remix.

Calling on associations of Lana Del Rey, Portishead, and The XX, this remix is perfect for a laid back Sunday, or a long summer drive. Luckily for you, this tune is available as a free download on their Soundcloud page.
