Following his last remix “Deer Stared At Me”, Clayjay is back with yet another crazy track. He knew he had to give this track a change-up as soon as he heard it for the first time, and the results are stupendous. Reworking Made In Height‘s “Panther”, the talented producer infused sharp synths and a chill trap beat to further bring out the ominous vibe of the original. The drums put accent to Clayjay’s signature sound, and the strings are kept to create the constant suspense throughout the tune.

The unique sound of Clayjay continues to impress us. It’s no question that the 18-year-old producer is well on his way to become a dominant force in the future trap scene. Make sure to grab this as a free download and show some support!

[Future House] The Magician – Together

The Magician - Together
The Magician
"Together"

There’s a few things we know about The Magician: he’s Belgian, he makes good music, and he’s magical as hell. Following the success of his last original “Sunlight”, The Magician is back with another hit, this time venturing into future house territories. The smooth vocals set the scene for the heavyhitting bass synths, which provide catchy bounces to the drop that will seriously cause an adrenaline overload for all listeners. The bells that start off the tune are also there to end it, adding a surreal and mysterious vibe to the mix.

There’s literally nothing The Magician cannot do. This new track follows the sound of the future, and the Belgian absolutely crushed it. It’s safe to say he’s got more tricks up his sleeves than we could all imagine.

[NEW] Jamie xx – I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times) (feat. Young Thug & Popcaan)

There's Gonna Be (Good Times) (feat. Young Thug & Popcaan)

When looking over the tracklist for Jamie xx‘s upcoming album, the Young Thug  and Popcaan feature was by far the most intriguing, unexpected inclusion. A little over a week ago, a leak of the far-out collab, featuring only Thug’s contribution, hit the Interwebs and it had all the makings of a summer anthem. The leak was swiftly removed from most major websites, but today we’re blessed with the final version of the song.

Jamie xx crafts an incredibly bright, and uncharacteristic, backdrop for Young Thug and Popcaan utilizing his signature steel drums and yet another masterfully placed soul sample echoing “I know there’s gonna be good times.” Popcaan’s perfected dancehall crooning opens things before Thugger’s playful, melodic flow takes over flawlessly, matching the instrumental’s overwhelmingly positive, bright energy.  Popcaan seamlessly takes back over between Thug’s verses and handles the outro before it fades into the infectious sample. This is, in our minds, one of the best songs to come out this year and we’ll be jamming out to it as we wait for the release of In Colour on June 2nd–pre order here.

Although this collaboration might come as a surprise to many, Jamie alluded to becoming a big fan of Young Thug while he was living in New York in a recent interview with XXL and, based on how perfect the combo sounds, he seems to have a true grasp of exactly what it is that makes Thug’s music so strangely addicting. It’s yet another testament not only to Jamie xx’s production abilities, but also his keen ear as a DJ developed through his immense, diverse musical knowledge.

[Electronica] ØRKA – Phantom

We’re in the middle of a historically dreary stretch of weather in Denver. It’s gray, cold, and rainy, and there’s no sign of anything different coming our way. We’ve exhausted our “Summer Playlists,” trying to bring some semblance of sunshine to our daily routine. We’re taking a different route today, instead embracing the grey with music to match.

This isn’t experience with our first with ØRKA. Last month, we brought you our first discovery of the intriguing Miami-based producer, and now we are happy to present his second original production, “Phantom.”

Dabbling somewhere in the electronica realm due to its fusion of organic elements – a dreary guitar melody, a pacifying vocal performance, and electronic additives – all that bolster the overall power of his compositional parts. It casually flirts with associations of artists both classic and modern, calling on associations of both Pink Floyd and James Vincent McMorrow.

Once again, ØRKA has graciously offered up his music as a free download for all to enjoy. We suggest you head over and pick it up, taking a few minutes to get helplessly lost in its stunning beauty.

[House/Electro/Industrial] Human Movement – Stranger

Human Movement
Stranger

No newcomers to these pages, Aussie club shakers Human Movement have been like a breath of fresh air to our dance fed Ninja lungs. And by fresh air, we mean a sweaty, sternum-thumping, greasy-house tipping kind of fresh air. After last appearing with us in February armed with the ragga stricken industrial-dance riddims of “Paradise”, Blake Gilray and Edward Macdonald’s project is back with another genre-blurring dance single: “Stranger”. True to Human Movement’s gritty, but extremely accessible blueprint, “Stranger”, touches on corners of a multitude of genre staples, yet remains completely unique to most everything else circulating the blogosphere dance wise. Human Movement pump a raw, warehouse-y industrial backbone as the most recognizable fuel for “Stranger”, encasing that aesthetic through an underground House structure while furthering a pop sensibility behind a spliced and gorgeous vocal track. It’s wonky, tasteful and dirty all at once, and as always, we hope you’re ready to dance to this one. Stream “Stranger” above, and take this one home in the form of a free download here.

[Multi-Genre] SoySauce – Lunch Money EP

SoySauce

We’ve been waiting for Lunch Money for quite some time. Finally, the EP is here, and SoySauce not only bring good music, but they bring philanthropic intentions with it as well. For those who choose to purchase a copy of the EP from iTunes, the proceeds will be going to the Los Angeles Food Bank, with their Backpack program being the main recipient of the funds. Basically, #EverybodyEats.

As for the music, a couple of the tracks were already parceled out before the official EP release day. The instrumental version of the Andy Milonakis collaboration “Thug Panda” leads off the four tracks, with “Broken Record” featuring Joni Fatora coming in second. Both are strong records that we have featured in the past.

“Talking To Myself” with Stalking Gia is a wonderful crossover song that displays the duo’s aptitude for bringing some variety to the music they create. Lastly, a collaboration with Saturn on “Gravity Waves” brings this to a close with bass. That is, until the second drop, where the guys switch things up entirely. Never does SoySauce disappoint. Do yourself and some children some good by getting a copy of Lunch Money.

Killin' It (Eau Claire Remix)

Rachel Wong’s consistent evolution and progression of sound through her Eau Claire project has been a hot topic of conversation around TMN lately. The DC based disco slayer has continually raised expectations with every passing release, most recently being featured through a properly deep take on Marvin Gaye’s “How Sweet It Is”; and shows no signs of slowing down her assiduous output. Today, Eau Claire’s teamed up with Nashville by way of Philly artist CAPPA to author a disco infused remix of “Killin’ It”, taking the original’s slick downtempo pop feel and framing it gorgeously through a syrupy, even more danceable lens. As the weather turns a bit warmer stateside, we’re expecting to hear this one on rooftops and pool parties all season. Stream Eau Claire’s “Killin It” remix above, and grab a free download here.
