Purple Yellow Red And Blue (Cowp Remix)
It’s Saturday afternoon and we’d imagine that most of you are either a) still sleeping, b) still drunk, or c) all of the above. As we sip on our hangover remedies with our headphones on our ears, we can’t help but dive head first into the never ending sea we like to call, Soundcloud. During this particular stumble, we came across a remix of Portugal The Man’s popular song, “Purple Yellow Red and Blue” by Boston producer, Cowp. This highly underrated artist has been on my radar (in particular) for months on end, and now I personally believe he just stepped up his production like never before.
At first listen, it’s almost impossible NOT to bump your head and throw in some ooh’s and aah’s from time to time because- hot damn- this remix is just what we needed to hear on a day like today. With a more futuristic, progressive approach, Cowp creates a fun dance anthem that incorporates many different genres underneath the electronic umbrella. Within this remix, we can identify elements of future bass, trap, indie dance, etc. that collectively give our ears an intended blend of auditory dissonance. From beginning to end, this remix progresses in a way that makes us “want to live in ecstasy”. All in all, Cowp just gave us a whole lot of YES and we’re just stoked to share this gem with all of you Saturday go-getters. So grab your free download and make sure to keep your eyes and ears on this upcoming producer.
Can you believe it’s already been 133 weeks of our weekly FPP?! Psssh, feels like the party has been going on for longer than that! This week we have a handful of tunes that will make you want to channel your inner Miley Cyrus. We had a hard time not twerking the afternoon away with this weeks selections in particular. So get dat ass up on the wall and shake what yo mama gave you.
As always, #danceirresponsibly.
Until next week, ninjas.

Down for Whatever
As a woman, it’s incredibly comforting to come across female musicians/vocalists who just know how to serendipitously serenade us our life story. Los Angeles singer and songwriter, Chelsea Lankes, just recently unleashed an indie-pop sensation that will undeniably give you all the reason to not care about last nights decisions or even this weekends mistakes you will most likely make. “Down For Whatever” resonates something youthful, pleasant, and all around FUN. With its simplistic vintage approach and synth-heavy progression, Chelsea Lankes speaks to us young twenty-somthings who just want to keep making mistakes and keep the spontaneity within us alive. So press play and let your worries and cares just dissipate.
Pistols At Dawn (Lucian x Mickey Valen Remix)
Being a newcomer to all of the artists involved in this tune, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Needless to say, after giving it a whirl, I was floored. Preserving the clear and crisp vocals of Seinabo Sey, Lucian and Mickey Valen shape a pop infused, futuristic masterpiece that could be just as much of a radio single as it is a SoundCloud gem. The piano offsets the huge, sawed off drops nicely and give the whole track a nice balance between every ebb and flow. Pop sensibilities face off with the new, transformative and exciting styles that have dominated the SoundCloud community and the winner every time is the listener. If you’re looking for a good segway track from more mainstream material, this remix courtesy of Lucian and Mickey Valen is a great place to start this fresh transition.
Often times we come across an artist or a band that completely change our standards and taste in music. Whenever this happens, we can’t help but experience a shift in direction as we continue along this linear path to a more refined music library selection. Earlier this week we stumbled across a debut artist, MONARCH
, who consist of Brent Kutzle and Brian Willet from OneRepublic, A Fine Frenzy’s, Joel Plotnik, and vocal frontrunner, Brennan Strawn. This side project is full of extreme talent and an immense amount of potential. Today we are sharing their first single, “Stay”, which is apart of their upcoming 4-single EP, Apollo
, which is set to release sometime this Spring.
“Stay” stunningly portrays a moving story that emulates that of something we would see in a contemporary dance routine. As the song progresses from a minimal baseline and crecendos into an indie-pop ballad full of mesmerizing synths, soothing vocals, and a powerful percussion, MONARCH gives us a subtle taste of vintage and modern elements that warm our hearts and coax our souls. This marks the start for a glorious new path for these guys and we can’t wait to see what they have in store for us this coming year.
Dreamers (Kicks N Licks Remix)
As we struggle to open our eyes and get out of bed on this slow, calm Friday morning, we can’t help but find some incentive to move from this comfort zone. Helping lift our sleepy spirits today are TMN natives, Kicks N Licks, and their swoon-worthy new remix of Hopium’s elusive, “Dreamers”. The producer duo approached this track in a much more heartfelt, forward-thinking way in which they completely transform the original into an uplifting, dramatic, and motivating new interpretation that will almost literally lift your soul and take you straight into the clouds.
Filled with heavenly (yet powerful) piano progressions, angelically reverberated vocals, enticing builds, and melodic drops of pure beauty, Kicks N Licks open our ears and our eyes in a much more inspiring way today. We suggest you grab your free download and keep this one on repeat because there’s no reason why you shouldn’t feel like a dreamer today.
Surreal Liverpool-based vocalists and trio All We Are - Richard ‘O Flynn (Drums), Guro Gikling (Bass), Luis Santos (Guitar) – fire away with another groove set to be featured on their self titled debut album due February 2nd. ‘Stone’ paints the perfect shade with its balance.
