[Acoustic] Cazzette – Sleepless ft. The High (Prinston Acoustic Edit)

Sleepless ft. The High (Prinston Acoustic Edit)

Last month, Cazzette released a stunning original track, “Sleepless ft. The High”, and took over the internet entirely. Since then, artists from all over the spectrum have put their unique spin on this track and have showed us a high level of differentiation within the realm of dance music.

After hearing such eclecticism in these productions, we have been searching for that one remix of “Sleepless” to give us an entirely different feel; something that would make us stop dead in our tracks and re-think everything we know about the purpose of music and its value. Well ninjas, today we have found that special something for all of you and we think it’s pretty damn neat.

While casually perusing the lovely world of Soundcloud, we stumbled across one of the most infectious  acoustic renditions of “Sleepless” to date. There is something truly magical when people take a dance track and bring us all on a more intimate level with merely just the strum of a guitar – and that is exactly what Prinston did. Honing down on the natural elements found in the original chord progressions, Prinston decided to place much emphasis on the vocal and lyrical value  in this track and has given us all something to truly appreciate on a much more emotive scale.

It is always refreshing to hear something new in dance music and we feel that Prinston has earned our respect with this unforgettable rendition of “Sleepless”. Make sure to check out the other songs in the Cazzette remix pack and see what other artists are turning this timeless song into.

[NEW] Alt-J – Left Hand Free

Left Hand Free

A few weeks ago, we got the first glimpse into Alt-J‘s highly anticipated upcoming album with the airy track, “Hunger of the Pine.” To help you kick any Monday blues, all puns intended, the U.K. band released another song from the project this morning that features a completely new sound.

The “least Alt-J song ever” according to the band members themselves, “Left Hand Free” carries the twangy feel of The Beatles circa the late 60s with a distinctive, upbeat hippie guitar lick that builds into an incredibly catchy hook. Not surprisingly, in a recent interview with The Guardian, Alt-J has suggested this song was made almost sarcastically to appease their label who did not feel that “Hunger of the Pine” had big-hit potential.

Regardless of the undertones, the unique vocals of lead singer Joe Newman accompany the instrumentation with perfection and the lyrics border on hilarious making this a fun, addictive addition to your summer playlist. Stream above and, if you’re digging it, head over to iTunes for a pre-order, which comes with an instant download of the single. This Is All Yours drops on September 22nd.

[House] Ace Of Base – All She Wants (SNBRN X Klatch Remix) [TMN Premiere]

Ace of Base
All She Wants (SNBRN X KLATCH Remix)

If there’s a better way to kick off a Monday than with a garagey, house remix of one of our favorite 90’s pop anthems, then well, we don’t even want to know about it. L.A. underground dance maestro SNBRN, whom we had the pleasure of premiering through his viral Morgan Page, “In The Air” remix, returns to TMN with another first play; this time brandishing a collaborative revision of Ace Of Base’s classic hit “All She Wants.” SNBRN who partners with Klatch this time around, weaves a deep and summery chord progression around a sultry classic house bassline and New York Garage shuffling hi-hats, resulting in an utterly unique and irresistibly dancey remix. About their musical fraternization, the young beat slanger said: “Came together with my close friend Klatch to remix a childhood favorite of ours “All She Wants.” We wanted to breathe new life into this classic but still keep the soul of the original. Enjoy our deep and sexy remix and stay burnt.”  With SNBRN & Klatch’s remix being offered as a free download again, we think there will be no problem staying burnt in the slightest. Try keeping this one out of your head today.

[Deep Trap] Sander Van Doorn, Martin Garrix, DVBBS, Feat. Aleesia- Gold Skies (SAYMYNAME REMIX)

Sander Van Doorn, Martin Garrix,DVBBS, Feat. Aleesia-Gold Skies(SAYMYNAME's DEEPER REMIX)

It seems that people in the dance music world have been looking for new ways to bring in new talent from all around the world. With an ubiquitous amount of hidden creativity floating around us, it has become difficult for producers to showcase their artistry due in part to the high saturation of music within this industry. Luckily, people are starting to shift into the mindset where we need to start thinking of new platforms to give producers the opportunity to share their music and expose themselves. With an increase in the number of remix contests flooding the blogosphere world, we have officially reached a revolutionary point where we can finally unveil these artists based on the combination of both popular vote and process of elimination.

Just recently, Beatport hosted a remix contest of, “Gold Skies” by Sander Van Doorn, Martin Garrix, DVBBS, and vocalist, Aleesia. With submissions pouring in from all around, LA based producer, SAY MY NAME, decided to enter the contest by submitting a spine-tingling chill trap rendition of this song and completely blew the competition away. SAY MY NAME took this commercial track and threw in a heaping dose of 808’s, trippy high hats, and enough bass to give us those feel good vibes that are ideal enough for those warm summer night drives. Whether this remix wins the contest or not, we think this track is pure gold.

SAY MY NAME has definitely become one of our new favorites here at TMN and we cannot wait to see what is in store for this artist. After hearing this impressive remix of “Gold Skies”, we can only hope he continues to further his productions in a similar direction. We’ll shut up and let you press play while you drown those Monday sorrows in your sea of pity.

[Hip-Hop] Lucki Eck$ – Finesse (Prod. Skywlkr)

Lucki Eck$
Finesse (prod. SKYWLKR)

Last summer, Chi-town emcee Lucki Eck$ dropped his debut mixtape, Alternative Trap, a hazy, collection of songs that caught the attention of the hip-hop blogosphere and earned him a dedicated following. Although his brand of rhymes is not particularly original in subject matter, generally covering drug consumption/distribution and women, Lucki’s approach provides new layers of depth far more focused on his psyche than the boastful repetition that has become the rap industry standard.

Gearing up for his sophomore project, Body High, the young artist took to Twitter to release an early glimpse into the project. The appropriately titled “Finesse” features ethereal production from regular Danny Brown collaborator, Skywlkr, over which Eck$ spits his signature subtle, druggy delivery. Zone out to this one above and keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming mixtape due out on July 18th–you won’t want to sleep on Lucki.

[Chill Trap] Wiz Khalifa – We Dem Boyz (Louis Futon Remix)

Wiz Khalifa
We Dem Boyz (Louis Futon Remix)

Philly based duo Louis Futon was given the opportunity to be the only official remix of Wiz Khalifa’s “We Dem Boyz”, and they absolutely killed it. Fusing future bass sounds with hip-hop, this duo makes us realize they’re not messing around. With comments like “This is probably the best creation since the television”, and five comments from Lippy Lemur, you know this is a heater. There are some comments trying to flame Louis Futon, and their remix, but we think their ears are broken. This remix is the perfect track for our American listeners who are still celebrating 4th of July, because “We Dem Boyz”. Hope you Ninjas had a great holiday, and have an awesome week ahead of you!
