Caden Jester ft. Christopher Blake – Slow [TMN PREMIERE]

Caden Smith - Slow (feat. Christopher Blake)

Slow (ft. Christopher Blake)

Here in TMN, we strive to discover music that turns heads but is also outcast to genres. This gem by Caden Jester is the perfect example of that.

“Slow” is an infectious tune that explores elements from R&B and soul to future bass without them overshadowing one another. The vocals by Christopher Blake are powerful and add a nice R&B touch to the melody. Slow-paced drums and a groovy bassline bring out the downtempo vibe of the track up until the drop, which combines casual wavy synths and a more upbeat approach. Whichever genre you fancy, it would be very difficult to not vibe to this lovely tune.

Being that Caden is only 18 years old, it is amazing how he came to familiarize with all these different genres and is able to combine them and give his own spin to create an original track. With the release of “Slow”, it is safe to say we’ve found our next favorite producer to religiously follow.

O R I O N – Gold Dust ft. Cammie Robinson

This song is from a little while ago, but it was new to us and instantly caught our ears. O R I O N put together a beautiful brain-melter with “Gold Dust”, and the sparse, but angelic vocals of Cammie Robinson are the icing on the cake. The innate feeling of escapism creeps out throughout the tune, and you’ll want to go explore the world as it plays. Enjoy this one on a bright and day. You’ll feel absolutely wonderful.

midnight – Native America (feat. The Internet)

The combination of midnight and The Internet is impossible to be apathetic about. Touching on the marred past of the United States, these talented people describe the constant push for the best life available in a seductive fashion that gives the message a new appearance. We’ve been hooked on midnight ever since his XXI Labors EP, and seeing him work with The Internet to deliver such a powerful message only solidifies our admiration of his work. Find some time to really sit and reflect on these lyrics.

Goldlink – Unique (Louis Futon Remix)

This one is simply fun. That’s no surprise, coming from Louis Futon. He decided to return to his earlier remix roots by flipping this Goldlink and Anderson Paak original into absolutely irresistible scorcher of a dance tune. We’re not even sure what the best part of it is, but there is one thing we know for sure. It’s ALL great. Kick off the shift into warm weather with this one.

The Geek x Vrv – Coming Up’ Feat Kellylee Evans & Atom

So much soul. The Geek x Vrv never fails to bring out the best funk, hip-hop, and soul crossovers with their material, and “Coming Up” is a vibrant new addition to their stellar sound. Featuring a fourth of C2C and the striking singing of Kellylee Evans, this song triumphs on its 90s rap atmosphere and style that’s revamped and repurposed into a more modern sound. You can’t NOT bob your head. We’re making sure to keep the double negative there just so you know we MEAN it. Throw this tune on when you just want to groove.

[Multi-Genre] dark cat – finite EP

dark cat

There hasn’t been a project that Cloudhead Records backed that wasn’t dope. This past week they released an EP called finite from an Icelandic cat-loving producer named dark cat. After listening to one of the tracks, we were a fan, but after listening to the whole EP, we were blown away.

Over the past year, dark cat has been releasing a myriad of tracks here and there, but we feel that this new EP is the start of something special in his career. The musicality throughout this EP will knock you off your feet. From the start with “BANANA STREET,” you get sucked in and dark cat never lets you go. This EP builds strength and speed as it progresses, with the first two future tracks seducing your ears, then “IRENE” hits with its dynamic sounds. After that, “PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS” brings the pace down a bit with its jolly composition that will give you frisson at least once. The last song on the finite EP, is the only collaboration on the project. dark cat teams up with lonemoon for what may be the best track on the project, as well as the most different stylistically. Safe to say, we’re all about dark cat now, and chances are you will be too. Check out the EP and open up iTunes if you want a copy.

’HOT CHOCOLATE’
’CAN’T YOU SEE (w/ lonemoon)’
’BANANA STREET’
’PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS’
’IRENE’

MODEL 86
MONO

MODEL 86 is an intriguing new artist on our radar. His latest track is called, “Mono” and sees the London-based producer blends hip-hop, electronic and world elements effortlessly. This makes for an extremely dynamic listen.

After playing through this one, you might wish you had discovered MODEL 86 sooner. Going back through his catalog, we’re really feeling his other releases as well. Peep this electronic song Holdin’ from a month ago for another taste of the MODEL 86 sound.

But “MONO” is the latest greatest and it might be the perfect out-there addition to your music rotation. There are some cool pitch-bend vocal samples, but hopefully we’ll get to hear a rapper on it at some point too. A few wild bars would really top this one off. If you like the beat, you will want to keep an eye on MODEL 86.
