[Oh Baby] Mar – Man X Woman

Man X Woman

How about we start this New Year off with a little sexy?

Ok, a lot sexy?

Enter Amsterdam artist Mar who has released a super sensual electronic with a touch of house song titled simply ‘Man X Woman’. This the first release off of his upcoming EP ‘Form’ and if the rest of the songs are anything like this one, this might be the next big baby-making EP. Mar is not just the producer behind this, he is also the writer and the vocalist and can this man sing. With a feel similar to Disclosure, Mar keeps the song lighthearted with his upbeat electronic melodies while slowing it down with his vocals, even breaking those into some deep base voices. This is everything a good man x woman should be, all music, hot, heavy, and yet innocent.

[Nu-Disco/Synth-Pop] The Golden Pony ft. Suntalk- Bonfire

The Golden Pony
Bonfire Feat. Suntalk

It’s been a little while since we checked in with one of our favorite tastemaking Deep Disco outfits, The Golden Pony, and in between their time hustling as some of NYC’s most influential electronic promoters, they’ve managed to issue a follow up to their debut original “Tiny Purple Fishes” with a house meets disco groover “Bonfire”. Featuring another NYC band Suntalk on vocals, “Bonfire” beautifully flits between the electronic indie dance output of camps like Future Classic and 4AD and straightforward nu-disko and house music structures. While TGP has made their name mostly by reaching into the remix cookie jar, their original tunes have been the hook which keeps us ninjas coming back for more. “Bonfire” paces itself briefly, starting off slow and steady, before bouncing in cheeky vocals and an appropriately addictive, simple bass line. This one pulled from us an immediate smile, and music which exhibits this quality has always been some of our favorite. Grab the free download here in exchange for a ‘heart’ on Hype Machine.

TMN Resident Artist Interview – Markus Schulz [EXCLUSIVE]

Markus Schulz
GDJB Dec 26 2013 Markus Schulz Flashback Episode

Well it’s finally here, a new year full of endless possibilities. This past year, TMN launched our resident artist program. Each month we had the opportunity to showcase the amazing talents of an artist for our readers to get to know on a more intimate level. We couldn’t have asked for better artists or a better response. So as we wrap up this year we wanted to end with an artist who we have respected for many years, one who constantly is changing the ways of dance music. For the final hoorah for 2013, we have the pleasure of getting to know Markus Schulz just a little bit better.

TMN: Markus! First off we just want to say we are such huge fans of you and all of your music. Thank you so much for wrapping up 2013 with us.

Thank you so much guys. It’s been another hectic and productive year.

TMN: Let’s start from the very beginning. Now you were born in Germany and you immigrated to the United States when you were young. Where did you grow up in the states?

Growing up in Germany was difficult for me. My step-father was in the military, so every couple of years we would have to move locations, and therefore any friendships you had forged with other kids vanished overnight, because the technology and means to keep in touch just wasn’t there. I was one of the so-called “army brats”.

It took me a long time to come out of my shell and show my personality to friends, but when I eventually did, it was time to pack up and move again.

I emigrated to the US when I was 13, and lived just outside Boston. It was a massive culture shock for me, and I struggled to fit in anywhere. I didn’t know any English, so had to learn the language quickly too. Music for me acted as a form of escape, and for a long time, it was the only friend I really had.

[Chill/House] Emily Underhill – Ghosts (Sebastian Carter)

Emily Underhill
Ghosts (Sebastian Carter Remix)

19 year-old Swiss electronic producer Sebastian Carter received the always awesome TMN distinction of taking our ears hostage this morning, as he has authored up a beautiful remix of Emily Underhill’s stirring, but previously minimal single “Ghosts”. Sebastian Carter hijacks Underhill’s powerful and emotive feminine vocal track and splices it with a pacifying downtempo chord progression which pays tribute to pure house while keeping intact its intimate, chilled out ambiance. Everything we’ve plucked out of Sebastian Carter’s back catalog thus far have been satiating slices of a melodic-house pie, so be sure to check out more of his originals if this one warrants your undivided listening attention, as it did ours. Snag a free digital copy, for the small exchange rate of one Facebook “like” here as well and stream Carter’s remix of “Ghosts” above.

[TMN PREMIERE] Tears for Fears – Shout (Avenue Remix)

Tears For Fears. Shout
Tears for Fears
Shout (Avenue Remix)

Anybody over the age of 25 should be able to sing at least a chorus from a Tears for Fears’ song. Some time ago, you couldn’t turn a corner without hearing “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” “Head Over Heels,” and probably the most commonly sung to, “Shout.”

With music taking a strong stride towards 80’s synth heavy sounds, it’s no wonder this New Wave Pop duo has a major comeback planned, which happens to include a remix competition. Coincidentally, Avenue is already ahead of the game, having put this track together before Tears for Fears even announced these grand scale plans at making a splash in the current music scene.

We posted one of this Toronto based producer’s tracks a while back, but most of you probably aren’t familiar with his sound yet. With a orchestral, electronic approach, Sam Willows (Avenue) has a laid back, yet highly winsome sound, mixing classical instrumentation with spiraling synths and a progressive beats.

In his take on the 1985 chart-smashing classic, “Shout,” we’re offered up a dancy version of the political protest tune. Gone are the power chords, heavy percussion and uncharacteristic guitar solo. In their place we find energetic, pulsing synthesizers that drive the tune into a full-on dance floor pleaser.

Make sure to keep an eye out on Avenue to see if his remix makes the cut! All of us at TMN are definitely rooting him on.
