[Pop/Electronic] Surprise Party! – Suprise Party! EP

We had no idea that Suprise Party! was launching, which makes sense given their name, but we’re glad they did. The duo is made up by our friend Brooks Brown whose own solo project has been making waves, as well as vocalist J Ingram.

Together they created their self-titled EP, complete with six songs that fuse electronic and pop together. Both artists’ strong suits are shown in full with this project that could see them making waves in the crossover communities. These youngsters could make some waves this year if they keep up the good work. Who knows when the next project is coming; it will likely come without warning. Stay tuned!

[Future Bass] VLNTN – Moan (ShiShi Remix)

Moan (ShiShi Remix)

The LA artist VLNTN recruited the Indian artist ShiShi for a magnificent remix of his track “Moan.” The stylistic jump isn’t jarring as ShiShi keeps it in the same arena as the original, but puts his own characteristics to it.

“Moan” in its original form is a poppy future cut and the same could be said about the remix. However, ShiShi brings some more international flare to the mix with his own sounds that really take the track to the next level. It’s a bit more jovial than the original and even more catchy. Leave it to ShiShi to astonish us again. We’ve been fans of his for a while now and we’re looking forward to seeing what this year is going to do for him.

ZAXX – Belong [TMN Premiere]


It’s not an easy thing to put your music out there and it’s even harder when you’re singing. ZAXX has done both for the first time together with his single “Belong” that we’re premiering for you right here in the dojo!

“Belong” sees ZAXX further expand his creative abilities not only in that he sings for the first time on one of his records, but in that he is trying different styles out. Here he delivers an almost industrial sounding original that doesn’t fit neatly into one genre-box. What makes this song particularly spectacular in our minds is that it develops from beginning to end, not simply being a copy and paste tune like many producers do between halves. Enjoy the first listen to “Belong” and make sure to get a copy of it from digital platforms.
