[Nu-Disco] Naxsy – Get On The Floor

Get On The Floor (Radio Edit)

The dance floor beckons many with her warm, siren song, but for some, they need an extra push to overcome social anxiety. Usually, a few adult libations will lend a helping hand, but an alluring song can work just as well. While we encourage a healthy combination of the two, we’re pretty damn convinced Naxsy just created something that work well without alcohol’s assistance.

This Parisian producer follows suit with other fellow countrymen in creating a true dance song, through and through. “Get on the Floor” features lovely bassline, sultry synth arrangements, playful vocal samples and layered guitar riffs, all of which make even the biggest anti-dancing curmudgeons get out and bust a move.

[TMN PREMIERE] Wicked Man – Soil Leaking Water

Wicked Man
Soil Leaking Water

With the plethora of genres, sub-genres and micro-genres (yes, we know how ridiculous that sounds) that we’re presented daily as bloggers, it’s not all that common to come across something that feels completely unique. Recently, we were introduced to Oakland three-piece Wicked Man, who possess a sound that’s nearly impossible to place, but draws on indie-folk, jazzy jams and impeccable guitar plucking combined with a nearly-sinister voice. Their debut EP, Fingership, felt like a project of discovery for the band but they’re gearing up for the follow-up and, if the first single is any indication, it’s one you’re going to want to look out for.

“Soil Leaking Water” is built on a sort of haunting, oscillating guitar accentuated by the mischievous vocals of frontman Yonatan Tietz, who’s voice finds itself somewhere between Bob Dylan and Alt-J’s Joe Newman. That instrumental loop is quickly followed by layered synths and steady percussion. From that base, the track develops into a magical composition invoking a range of emotions through out tied together by a common groove–whether it be from the guitar, synths or vocals. The complexity of the instrumentation and dynamic nature of the piece don’t take away from its accessibility, though, and neither does the unconventional crooning.

It’s a jam that oozes a variety of vibes that we’ll definitely be saving for our 4th of July BBQ. Do yourself a favor and give this multiple listens above–it gets better with each one. Wicked Man’s upcoming EP is due out mid-September.

Imagine Dragons – Shots (The Young Professionals Remix) [TMN PREMIERE]

Imagine Dragons
Shots (The Young Professionals Remix)

You know that moment when a song perfectly encapsulates the feeling you’re experiencing? It’s quite the phenomenon, often inciting things like spontaneous office dancing, random fist pumps, confirming head nods, toothy grins, and maybe even some enthusiastic hand claps. Well, Tel Aviv’s electrifying pop duo The Young Professionals has successfully made us do all the aforementioned actions, giving us the perfect soundtrack to carry us through the work day and into a long holiday weekend.

You’ve probably come across this act before, either from their dance-inducing originals like “All of It But Me,” or from any of their dazzling remixes of artists like Tove Lo, Tegan and Sara, Zedd, Lady Gaga & Tony Bennett, Moby, or Lana Del Rey. Whatever you’ve experienced with them, one thing is constant throughout: it’s downright infectious.

Today, we’re bringing you an exclusive first listen of their interpretation of “Shots.” The original Imagine Dragons‘ song already had an upbeat synth-pop soundscape, but The Young Professionals saw it dialed up a few notches further, bringing an 80’s dance tempo into the mix.

Paying an artful homage to the original, Ivri Lider and Johnny Goldstein ensure that hardcore fans of Imagine Dragons won’t turn a nose at a reconstruction of their favorite tune, yet ensured that TYP’s signature captivating style is all over it. Most notably is the absolutely wicked guitar solo that comes in just after the 2:00-minute mark, that may or may not make you wail out on your air guitar. If you get caught in the act, make sure to tweet them and let them know.

2015 looks like it’s shaping up to be a big year for The Young Professionals. Fans can expect a full album release later this year, as well as a slew of new remixes. Keep your eye on them by visiting their website.

[Dark] Whynnel – Mitzdi


A hero’s power would be nothing without the juxtaposition of a darker force. In much the same way, the team over at Heroic have launched the perfect antithesis to their current label with the recent launch of Villain Recordings. With the idea to establish a polar opposite spectrum of sound, this newly birthed collective enables an entirely new breed of artist to be showcased whose musical tendencies lean towards the dark and mysterious.

Leading the charge for the villainous conquest is Slovenian producer Whynnel, giving us a taste of the label’s sinister side with the grungy beats of ‘Mitzdi’. The brooding atmosphere is a potent presence throughout this intensely edgy experience, and yet beneath it all lies undertones that are refreshingly chill. Nevertheless, the imagery of abandoned factories shrouded in darkness will form an inescapable labyrinth in the listener’s mind for the full four minute journey.

Though completely contrasting from a stylistic point of view, one factor that connects the two entities is a mission statement to unearth new talent and create new legacies in the scene. If this debut release is anything to go by, the bad guys will definitely be a force to be reckoned with!

[Progressive House] Morgan Page ft. Lissie – Open Heart (Disco Fries Remix)

Disco Fries
Morgan Page ft. Lissie
Open Heart [Disco Fries Remix]

A handful of remixes were commissioned for Morgan Page’s single, “Open Heart,” with Lissie. One of those remixes comes from the house duo Disco Fries who just recently started back up on reinterpreting tracks after a long string of originals. They ditch their usual electro sound for something more progressive and light to fans.

Disco Fries veer towards the traditional style, however they do not commit fully, giving their own take on a sound that can get watered down very quickly. Nick and Danny never seem to fail at bringing big tracks with quality melodies, which is just why top level artists like Morgan Page get them to remix their work. The full remix EP is up on Beatport, so check out the rest of the songs and purchase what you like!

[Give Back] Surfer Blood Playlist + Go Fund Me


If you’re a fan of this West Palm Beach band, you’re probably very familiar with what’s going on with their guitarist Thomas Fekete. If you’re not familiar with Surfer Blood, or the uphill battle they’ve been facing lately, then today is the day that this changes.

We first started posting their music back in ’03, becoming instantly enamored with “Weird Shapes.” The sharp guitar riffs definitely hooked us within minutes, followed by swooning over the juxtaposition between front man Jon Paul Pitts charming vocals, a spattering of hardcore screams, and glowing vocal harmonies from Thomas Fekete (guitar/backing vocals), Kevin Williams (bass guitar/backing vocals).

Since then, we’ve posted a handful of songs over the years, yet haven’t kept up with their greatness. It’s not that we’ve fallen out of love with their laid back, coastal sounds, it’s just that the amount of music that comes out on a daily basis is simply overwhelming.

With the news of guitarist Thomas Fekete’sstruggle with cancer, we thought it was the proper time to re-visit their catalog and put together a playlist of our favorite tunes. So please, take the next thirty minutes, or so, and enjoy our curation.

On a more serious note, we as music lovers take quite a bit for granted when it comes to our favorite bands. These guys are hitting the road for months on end, usually living out of a van, making less than we probably all think. What’s worse is, there is no health care for musicians. There is no 401k. There is no disability insurance that’s automatically provided when you choose your band name. Up until a certain point that few see, it’s entirely on them to make ends meet.

As music fans, it’s important that we take some time to help out these heroes that dedicate their lives to filling our headphones, venues, and festivals with our favorite songs. Please read Thomas’ personal note below, then head over to his Go Fund Me page and donate what you can. No amount is too small, as it all adds up to the collective amount of helping him out.

A few months back I had a major surgery to remove a large tumor from my abdomen. I was diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive cancer (a sarcoma), which unfortunately has moved. A few days ago, my doctors informed me that it had spread to my lungs and my spine.

Any bit of help would be massive for me, as I’m no longer able to tour and make a living, and my wonderful wife/best friend whom I just married in November will now be leaving work to help me throughout my treatment. If you can’t help, no worries whatsoever, all I ask is that you spread the word. Any extra funds collected when this is all said and done will be donated to further my doctor’s alternative cancer research. I not only feel great, but I am in great spirits, and I know this will soon be over like a bad dream. Please take care of yourselves, enjoy every single day. Life is beautiful. Love and light always.
