[Electronic/Pop] Campsite Dream – Try Again

Try Again

Campsite Dream takes a bit of a different direction with their new single, and we’re not mad one bit. You can’t really look down upon an artist when they try something new. When the result is something desirable, then that’s a beautiful thing. “Try Again” is Campsite Dream’s beautiful thing in that scenario.

There won’t be any need for do-overs with this single. “Try Again” is a fun little jam that Epic Amsterdam dropped in late June. The song has been making its rounds since then with praise coming from all over. Campsite Dream has dipped into the pop style before, but now it seems to have been a full fledged target, however other styles are certainly implemented within the composition. Because it is Summer, most acts are bringing out the heavy, fun tunes, but there are those who are looking to just bring out some good vibes, including Campsite Dream. Stream “Try Again” today and head over to iTunes for a copy if you dig the song.

Pictures Don't Fade feat. Mack Moses (Dugong Jr Remix)

Melbourne, Australia is home to Dugong Jr. If you are a fan of the music Good Enuff puts out, then you should be familiar with this cat as he has had a few releases with them. However, today we are sharing with you his official remix of “Pictures Don’t Fade,” by Illstrtd.

The original single, featuring Mack Moses, was previously covered in the dojo, and after coming across the remix, we had to share with you it as well. Be Rich Records made a strong maneuver getting him on board for a flip, as he really turned this one out with a great result. His hybrid future take should have producers and fans alike going wild. The unique sound it presents is fresh to the ears and easy on the body. Dugong Jr showcases why he’s among the top talent in Australia right now, which is something special given all the superb producers coming from down under. Stream the single today and get ready for a full release soon.

[Electronic] VOUIIX – June Bug

June Bug

I just stumbled on a new EP by an artist fresh to the scene named, VOUIIX. The Inertia EP has a lot of really creative songs with an experimental yet classic electronic sound but “June Bug,” the project’s lead single, stands out the most. Great use of filters and automation bring in the catchy backing chords and make the song a dynamic listen throughout. On top of this, VOUIIX shows off his ability for sampling, inventive percussion and synth design. Bringing all of these elements together, “June Bug” is simply upbeat and interesting. And after listening you might want to head over to his page to peep the full “Inertia” EP.

[Trap] B-Sides ft. Nevve – Killers On The Loose

B-SIDES FT. NEVVE
KILLERS ON THE LOOSE

With a strong history of tasteful high-energy releases, B-Sides is well known in the world of electronic and trap music. I can be pretty picky when it comes to my choice of dance music nowadays. But B-Sides’ new song, “Killers On The Loose” works for a festival set, an underground club or just kicking it with some friends. A lot of credit is due to the smooth vocals laid down by the singer Nevve. The evolving buildups are the highlight here. And they are fulfilled without being overshadowed when the bass and beats drop in.

[Psych Rock] Jagwar Ma – OB1

O B 1

I was first introduced to Jagwar Ma via BIRP’s May 2013 release. In “Man I Need”, I found a 9-minute long primer to what would soon become a favorite genre of music. The influences of indie rock, glitz-pop, and psychadelia came together to form a symbiotic masterpiece with each piece complimenting the others. While Jagwar Ma has been touring regularly, fans have not been exposed to new material since the debut of Howlin’ in 2013. This week, the first single from the soon-to-be released album Every Now and Then, “OB1” has hit the airwaves.

Opening with a glitzy, reverb heavy loop set under Gabriel Winterfield’s vocals, the track wastes no time to root itself in the same psychedelic framework that made the band so popular in 2013 – and propelled Lonerism to universal acclaim in 2012. “OB1” plays out nicely over the course of a lengthy five and a half minutes, giving an ode to previous works like “Uncertainty” and “The Throw” which take equally as long to build up.

As the song unfolds, a subbed out bass line and a 90s-rock guitar riff carry the bridge and the hook respectively. Overall, “OB1” is a return to form for Jagwar Ma and gives fans a hopeful glimpse into what is in store from them in the second half of 2016. In addition to dropping a new album, fans can catch what is – in my personal opinion – one of the best live performances that exists all over the globe this summer and fall. Jagwar Ma’s website can be found here and a few of their tour dates are listed below the music video.

The Mystical Music of the Islamic Sufis arrives at Enchanted Forest [EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW]

unnamed-1

For some, the gathering of like-minded, free-spirited individuals in the forest for 4 days of non-stop music, workshops, speakers, and art is enough to transform the soul. To show you another way to live, a more enriched, fulfilled way of seeing the possibilities all around us. But for others, this is not enough. To satisfy the desires of a diverse crowd, Enchanted Forest doesn’t stop there. They bring some of the most unique attributes of the festival scene into play, including a liberating #freethenipple campaign, 24-hour shower parties, a 100 percent alcohol-free experience, and a “Save The Planet” charity initiative with Cadence & Cause, where you can win 2 all-inclusive tickets to the festival simply by donating.

To top it off, Enchanted Forest brings with them some of the most well know and carefully selected musicians the festival space has to offer. Including a fascinating 8 member Qawwali group called Fanna Fi Allah.

Qawwali music is something that most of us from the festival world have never heard of. It is a cultural phenomenon in South Asia and has been around for almost a thousand years, so why are we introduced to it now?

We sat down with their founder Tahir to ask a few questions of this uniquely inspiring band before heading into the forest.

TMN: So, how long have you guys been around and where do you play most of your music?

Tahir: We have been touring for 16 years and actually only play about 5% of our music at American festivals. Most is spent in Pakistan, India, and the Punjabi cultures in South Asia and the Middle East.
