[Get Crunk] Friday Party Playlist (Vol. 111)

fpp

It’s America’s 238th birthday today, ninjas. If that doesn’t make you want to go out and buy a six pack of beer and talk for hours about how much you love America, then you’re celebrating your 4th of July the wrong way. We’ve got an extra crunk FPP for all of you this week in preparation for the epic holiday weekend ahead, but then again, we always provide you with a free load of anthems each and every week to make you feel like every day is a festival.

Whether you’re in the mood to twerk or not, we don’t really care because it’s inevitable that you will want to shake what yo mama gave you once the party starts. So go put on your freshest American flag apparel, BBQ up some burgers, and press the hell out of the play button because we here at TMN know how to celebrate our nations birthday the right way.

We ask that while you scream ‘#Murica’ for the rest of the day that you please remember to #danceirresponsibly and try not to start any fires with your stash of illegal fireworks.

Until next week, ninjas!

[Deep House] Gorgon City – Here For You (Slander Edit)

Gorgon City
Here For You (Slander Edit)

Well, ninjas, it seems that we’ve been on a Deep House kick these past couple of days and cannot seem to get away from all of these groovy basslines and mesmerizing melodies. There’s really nothing better than losing yourself in the progressive flow of such simplistic, yet intricate sound frequencies.

As we prepare to settle down for the night, we thought we would help give you those mellow house feels  with a Slander edit to help elevate the soul and cleanse the mind. The duo took on the powerful song, “Here For You” by Gorgon City, and subtly transformed it into the ultimate Thursday night mood-setter. Without straying too far away from the radiated chill house vibes, Slander maintained the emotive resonance from theoriginal track but decided to go two times deeper by adding some tropical synths, an enticing piano progression,  and a heavy bassline strong enough  to give you goosebumps for the next few days. So make sure to grab your copy, press play, and let this sensual tune take you to a happy place in your mind. Cheers!

[Alternative/Rock] Berlin Bar Hounds – Le Rambles

Berlin Bar Hounds
Le Rambles

I know what you’re thinking, but no, this is not a new secret side-project by The National’s Matt Berninger, but rather one created by Jinja Safari drummer, Jacob Borg.

Contrary to what their name suggests, Berlin Bar Hounds are based in Sydney, Australia, from where they have released their debut single, “Le Rambles.” Showcasing a baritone that flows like underground currents and laments love and loss, this track pulses equal parts brooding and smooth.

Hopefully a sign of a full-length album to come, “Le Rambles” has made Berlin Bar Hounds one to look out for.

Far Too Loud returns with a boom! [TMN Exclusive Interview]

FTLBoomTMN
Far Too Loud
Boom! [Preview]

Electro whizz kid Far Too Loud steps up with his new single ‘Boom!’, to be released on No Tomorrow Recordings, July 7th. The UK-based producer crossed over to big sister label Never Say Die at the beginning of the year, but now returns to his previous home for this track release. Pulling no punches, this one dives in with a rhythmically satisfying introduction. No stranger to incorporating samples, FTL has packed this one with various sounds and excerpts, including shouts of “Boom!” throughout. Despite a nod to big room, the middle section is almost trance-like, an anthemic conclusion to a summer festival killer. We got chatting to the man behind the music.

TMN: You’re from Brighton, UK – how has your hometown influenced your time in music?

FTL:  It’s a great place to live, but I don’t feel it influencing my music at all.  I love the occasional day off in Brighton – hitting up the shops, pubs, a good restaurant, but my main source of inspiration is the atmosphere at the shows I play and the tracks I see really going off.

TMN: You’re playing the States as well as all over Europe. How do you find the varying global scenes? Any major differences?

FTL: I still find that I can go a bit harder in my European sets. American crowds need more vocals and familiar elements to a set, which I don’t mind though. It’s cool to work out interesting ways of doing that.

TMN: You have a new track, ‘Boom’, coming out next week. What sound were you aiming to hit on this one? How did you come up with the idea for it?

FTL: The melody popped into my head when I was walking to the shop late one night. The drop was originally more bassy, but I started playing around and the current one just stuck in my head, so I ran with it. I wanted to do something more current but that still sounds like an FTL production.

TMN: What do you like to do outside of the studio? Where do you like to chill out?

FTL: There’s not that much free time I get between studio and gigging, but I prefer to spend that time doing something culturally enriching.  Gigs, exhibitions, theatre, restaurants, pop-ups, any weird or unusual events.  I want to experience or find out about new things.

TMN: What are your aims for the rest of 2014 and heading into the new year?

FTL: I’m working towards a bigger release and tour towards the end of the year, then I’m going on holiday on 2nd January!

TMN: Any shows you’re particularly looking forward to this summer?

FTL: I’m most looking forward to the outdoor festival sets. I’m on my way to the USA as I write this where I’ve got Big Liberty, then up to Canada for Valhalla Sound Circus and Astral Harvest. Then it’ll be back to UK and Europe for some more including Noisily, Beatherder, Let It Roll and Uplands. Also a South Africa visit at the end of the summer for Grietfest will be awesome.

[DnB] Pola – Sound Killa / Little Do I Know feat. Bryzone

soundkillaart

The fourth digital release from East London’s Soulvent Records comes from Pola, one third of the label’s personnel. His debut release ‘Sound Killa’ blends new and old influences well – mixing warm liquid tones with an old school rolling beat. Out on July 6th, it features a well-known jungle sample alongside surging drum progessions and rave-style piano chords.

On the flip meanwhile comes ‘Little Do I Know’. Features vocals provided by Pola himself,  it also features label mate Bryzone. A stirring and atmospheric track, Pola blends melancholic chords with a gritty live drum sound.

These are two sophisticated pieces of work from producer and DJ Pola, who has gained a nod of approval from the likes of Hospital Records artists Etherwood and Logistics. We look forward to hearing more from this young talent.

[Alternative/Rock] Spoon – Do You

4a8ed969

After a four-year hiatus, Austin-based indie rock mainstays Spoon are back and as spry as ever with the first official single off their forthcoming eighth record, They Want My Soul.

“Do You” is classic Spoon, with Britt Daniel’s pleading vocals calling out over intertwining guitar and piano along with the type of softened, echoing “do-do-dos” only the best instant sing-alongs are made of. Despite the ferocious intensity of the three-eyed lion in the artwork, the track is actually quite warm and inviting, and you can almost feel the audiences clapping in time already.

Written immediately after Daniel’s side-project Divine Fits concluded touring last year, They Want My Soul is scheduled to become the Texas outfit’s first LP on new label Loma Vista upon its release on August 5th, though there’s still plenty of summer left to bounce along to this song in the meantime.

“Do You” is available for purchase on iTunes, or better, through the band’s new Vinyl Gratification program.
