[Dreamy] Keep Shelly In Athens – Benighted (Different Sleep Remix)

Different Sleep
Keep Shelly In Athens ~ Benighted (Different Sleep Remix)

This Different Sleep remix might just be the coolest thing we’ve heard today. The Chicago-based producer put his own spin on his Friends of Friends label-mate’s track “Benighted”, and turned it into this breathtaking downtempo tune. Different Sleep combines a light bassline with Keep Shelly in Athens‘ chill-out elements and sustained vocals, resulting in five minutes of dreamy adventure. A series of synth stabs and piano licks elevate the track with a majestic effect, yet remaining a mysterious vibe. We became a fan soon after the very first listen. Whether you’re listening to this when you’re sleeping, driving or doing work, this gem definitely serves its purpose.

Different Sleep is supporting Keep Shelly in Athens for their North American tour this fall, so don’t miss out if you want to catch these talented individuals!

[Folk] Conner Youngblood – Birds of Finland

Conner Youngblood
The Birds of Finland

Every time we hear a new song from Texas-based Conner Youngblood, we have to stop and ask ourselves, “Why isn’t this kid blowing up right now?” Not to discredit the success he’s already experienced, especially given the reach of tracks like “Australia” and “The Warpath.” But, in our eyes, Conner Youngblood should be a household name. He’s been a long-time favorite of ours, both within TMN HQ, and individually amongst writers, and it can’t be too much longer before droves of others are proclaiming the same.

There’s a certain casual, unassuming, and welcoming vibe from Youngblood’s music. It’s not pretentious. It’s not overly complicated. It’s just…good. “Birds of Finland” shows us that again, as we experience a blend of experimental and familiar. We’re welcomed in by strange, vocoder-filtered vocals, oriental-style strings, and understanded piano keys. The song transitions into a powerful, building folk song, highlighted by that voice we’ve come to know and love through the years.

“Birds of Finland” can be found on his upcoming EP, Generation of Lift, due out October 9th.

[Indie] Ofelia K – Gone

Ofelia K

It seems like it’s been ages since we first came across the incapacitating and hauntingly beautiful voice of Ms. Ofelia K. In reality, though, it’s only been a handful of months since we fell head-over-heels with “White T-Shirt.” Like a pleasant, unexpected text from a long time friend, this impressive indie chanteuse has come back into our lives, and we’re pretty damn thrilled about it.

“Gone” draws listeners in with a slow, calming, piano-driven build, which eventually leads us to those softly-sung vocals we’re so easily enamored with. Coupled with a reverberating beat, playful synths, and subdued percussion, “Gone” will quickly have you lost deep inside your own mind, and blissfully so.

[Mini-Mix] PatrickReza – W(≈)MPS FOR WATER

PatrickReza: W(≈)MPS FOR WATER

We’ve had the pleasure of watching PatrickReza evolve over the years, continually relishing in his inventive tunes, regardless of genre. Now, we get to see the next step in his evolution, as he turns his attention onto providing clean water for people in Kenya, Uganda, India and Haiti.

Fans of Reza won’t want to miss the opportunity to win a pair of his signed SOL REPUBLIC headphones. On top of the chance to pick up this legendary piece of memorabilia, each entry will buy water filters which can provide a person with clean water for a year. Think about it this way – if you contribute the minimum ($2), you’ll provide 40,000 gallons of clean water to those in need. Pretty insane, right?

To highlight his recent campaign with our buddies over at Cadence & Cause, Mr. Reza has dialed up an absolutely filthy mix, which includes a few unreleased tunes, as well as some of his favorites at the moment. If you’re really feeling it, you can get it for free by entering to win his headphones. That’s also the only way you can figure out what the tracklist is too.

The Weeknd – Can’t Feel My Face (Truancy Cover) ft. Ian Everson [TMN PREMIERE]

Cant Feel My Face Ft. Ian Everson

It won’t be long before Minneapolitans, St. Paulites, and the rest of Minnesotans find an all too familiar second meaning to the line “I Can’t Feel My Face.” Whether or not this stellar remix from Twin City-based producer/DJ had that in mind when he stepped into the studio will remain unknown. What we do know is this – this remix/cover, which was dialed up by Truancy and vocalist Ian Everson, will certainly heat up the dance floor for the coming months, providing not only Minnesota, but the rest of the country with a vehicle to warm themselves up while cutting some rug.

In a city where bass and big drops reign supreme, this up-and-coming producer is being hailed as somewhat of a hometown hero, serving up those who want to populate the early morning windowless warehouses. One listen through this artful house interpretation should have you feeling the movement he’s currently spearheading, by means of a driving kick, funky bassline, enveloping melodies, and those sultry vocals.

As he’s done in his own scene, Truancy (with the help of Ian Anderson) separates himself from the pack of other producers across the globe who took on this wildly popular song. To top it off, this remix is a prelude to something bigger than himself, which will be coming out next week via the charitable music platform, Cadence & Cause.

We suggest you stay tuned and find out what exactly that will be.
