Sometimes all you need to end your night is a nice cup of hot vanilla chai, a cozy blanket, and a little PROM in the background to send you into a spiraling tunnel of pure, euphoric bliss. We’ve come to love everything there is about Gabe and Ella, and have been supporting them ever since their debut release with “Flickers”. Now that their Keeping Company EP is finally out and floating in the world, we had the joy of listening through each and every magical track. We took to fancying every single song on the EP, but were captivated by the ear-enchanting number, “My Line”. Filled with their glorious signature synths and flawless harmonies, PROM has distinguished themselves as innovative, artistic, and highly unique. As we sit here and enjoy our nightly cup of tea, we can’t help but close our eyes and lose ourselves in this soul-quenching track. The music Gods sure have graced us with this heavenly duo and all that they create. Despite them still not inviting us to Prom. Gabe and Ella are always going to have a special place in our ninja hearts from here on out. Well. what are you waiting for? The play button isn’t going to hit itself, so prepare to escape for the rest of the night and we’ll see you on the other side.
Doing It Wrong ft. Liv (Drake Cover)
I can’t even begin to talk about how much I adore this song.
The highly talented duo Gorgon City have released many a songs this past month off of their EP ‘Sirens’, a group of eclectic addictive songs, many have the vocal power from some heavy hitters. The one song I can’t get over though is their cover of Drake’s ‘Doing It Wrong’ with some help from the insanely talented Liv. It is a brutally honest song about a relationship that has gone bad and how that particular world will end but life itself will continue on. The guys start the song off slow, with Liv’s vocals seductively inviting you into the song. Before adding that Gorgon City touch of upbeat electronic melodies that add a certain flair to the seriousness of the lyrics. One thing is evident, these boys know how to turn any song into an original of their own. My repeat is getting angry at me and my neighbors probably hate this song by now but there’s no changing it to anything else, promise you that.
Embody Feat. A*M*E
Give Me Your Love
British producer Embody just released a brand new single titled “Give Me Your Love” featuring vocals from the Grammy-nominated A*M*E, and it’s everything we would expect and more. The tune starts off really soft and the vocals shine right away. These tropical sounding synths take the spotlight when the beat drops, followed by some killer saxophone synths that make the track exceptionally fun and entertaining.
Don’t let his looks fool you, he is way ahead of his years when it comes to the complexion and appeal of his music. Embody has been really consistent with releasing new music for our hearing pleasure. We definitely sense some big moves coming for the talented producer, so stay tuned!
Pipe Down Chachi
Blame (Pipe Down Chachi Remix)
2014 started with a wave of fresh Australian talent producing unique music powerful enough to carve out a signature style that formed a communal identity around the ‘Australian sound’. It wasn’t that long ago at all, but as the year progressed the trend continued to evolve as its popularity proliferated around the globe, and it almost fell victim to its own identity crisis as ‘future’ became the new buzzword to hit the net.
Despite how it sounds, this isn’t a post done in mourning at all, but quite the opposite. This is a declaration that the world-renowned ‘Australian sound’ has not faded away into the background just yet, because there are still plenty of artists out there to be discovered, and where better to find them than the musical hotbed of Sydney. Pipe Down Chachi may be a new name to us here at TMN, but this bright and colorful Calvin Harris remix is just the example we needed to showcase what the scene down-under still has left to offer. In this case, it’s heavy hitting trap kicks and an infectious synth-driven melody that’s bound to stick in your head for days. Soundcloud may have removed the initial upload of this track and taken the wind out of the momentum it was garnering online, but we’re here to return this one to its rightful status and once again give it the attention it deserves. Takes more than that to keep a good tune down!
A Rush Of Blood
One listen through “A Rush of Blood” will have you confirming the fact that Coasts are one of the next big things. Soon to follow other notable explosive indie rock acts such as Two Door Cinema Club and The 1975, this band is on a current trajectory to be heard in every corner of the world.
We’ve been on board with this Britol 5-piece since we first laid ears on their Paradise EP, and we can’t foresee any reason why our adoration won’t continue, even after their done crafting monster tunes.
Alright, enough gushing, let’s talk about the song at hand. In true Coasts’ fashion, “A Rush of Blood” boasts a true stadium-filling cinematic sound, carried by the powerful lead vocals. The production is on flawless, thanks in part to producers Mike Spencer (Rudimental/Alex Clare) and James Rushent (Does it Offend You Yeah), one which develops truly encapsulating sound. While the production is noteworthy, the instrumentals deserve their own moment in the spotlight, carrying this song from a drawn-out build-up to a surging crescendo of splashing cymbals, charging guitar chords, a driving bassline, and understated piano work. All of the aforementioned create the perfect backdrop for what drew us to this act in the first place: the bold, unrelentless lyrics that capture your emotions with ease.
This song is on their second full release EP, Rush of Blood. Released on the independent label Tidal Recordings, this outfit has recently signed to Capitol Records for the USA after being confirmed for some notable festivals.

Jerry Folk Remix
Oh my oh my! Check out this brand new Mario Winans remix by Norway-born producer Jerry Folk. Artists always come up with ways to be innovative and creative when it comes to remixes, and Jerry Folk certainly did the original song justice by adding his own spice to it. It is truly amusing to see how he turns the R&B classic into this housey goodness.

Following an anticipated buildup, the beat drop steals the spotlight with this future house and disco fusion. The funky bass line to the drop is also a notable and deserves its own shoutout. There is no doubt it is an exceptional remix by an exceptional producer.
