Good Love (feat. Effy)

One of our favorite producers in VenessaMichaels is closing 2017 with a bang. She’s just dropped her original collaboration “Good Love” with Olmos and Effy that has melted our hearts and satisfied us from ears to soul.

It’s nice to see Venessa jumping back to originals. “Good Love” sees her and company getting fresh with an electronic pop hit that could take over radio waves by storm. It hearkens back to Venessa’s signature sound that breathed most exceptionally through her originals works and adds in elements from Olmos’ sound. As always Effy jumps on with a dazzling performance where she takes center stage. Together these three cooked up one of our favorite pop tracks of the year. Get your copy of it today.

Nick Talos ft. BullySongs – Glass House (YNC X S3RIOUS Remix) [TMN Premiere]

To help brighten up your day we’ve got you covered with an exclusive first listen from Nick Talos. His song “Glass House” with BullySongs was reshaped by YNC and S3RIOUS. This dark treat is just what you need to get you to – and through – the weekend on the right note.

“Glass House” in its new form is a clubby, brooding song that isn’t hard to imagine being the late night jam that reinvigorates the party. The vocal is a major emotional force for the song, but YNC and S3RIOUS match its power with their own production that is both catchy and captivating. If you’d like to check out where this remix started from – IE the original song – then you may do so here.

As a much anticipated follow-up to Vol. 1 released this summer, music collective NVDES has released the sequel La Nvdité Vol. 2 today. De-facto frontman Josh Ocean enlists the help of his musically talented friends once again to produce yet another energy and emotion packed EP. NVDES continues to deliver on their mission of soul-baring creative expression.

Volume 2 takes a decidedly more experimental approach than pop-heavy Volume 1. There’s a bit of everything on this latest EP, but you begin to hear some new musical inspirations come through on this production.

On first track “This High”, the EP kicks off with the familiar post-punk, distorted guitar twangs you’ve come to associate with NVDES. If you keep listening, Ocean and crew lace in some ethereal, almost spiritual crooning. By the end of the song, you’re left with a trappy banger. Quite the musical journey on this track.

Another standout is lead single “D.Y.T.”, a fun, minimalistic dance tune that we featured previously here on TMN. NVDES draws on the help of talented vocalist Remmi for this tune. The following track, “Everyday”, shows a soulful side of NVDES that we haven’t quite seen before. Alongside a distinctly retro sampling/production style, this track introduces a new funky side to the lost love that Ocean so often enjoys writing songs about.

On the whole, Vol. 2 makes it evident that Ocean is delving deeper into certain aspects of his creative repertoire, going beyond the pop-punk electro sound that NVDES initially became known for. Leaning on heavier and darker beats, and lacing in funk and soul elements, NVDES makes an unexpected yet welcome musical pivot, while staying true to their roots of free-flowing, unstructured musical exploration.
