Oh Wonder – Body Gold (LUCA LUSH Remix) [TMN Premiere]

Oh Wonder
Body Gold (LUCA LUSH Remix)

LUCA LUSH is back with another crazy flip, and he’s taken on one of the most exciting new groups to debut from last year, Oh Wonder. The alaya member has become comfortable with his high energy remixes, and he really has juiced up Oh Wonder in a fun and futuristic fashion. Hopping from deep house style basses to sweltering nu disco synths, this remix never sits stagnant for a moment. He also preserved just the right amount of vocals to bring a little emotion into the club like he has done so well previously. On a different but equally exciting note, we’ve caught wind that he has a tune coming up with Dirty Chocolate to be released on alaya in the near future, so enjoy this phenomenal flip in the mean time and keeps your eyes peeled for that new collaboration!

[Electro-Soul/Synth-Pop] Coleman Hell – 2 Heads

2 Heads

Back in early December we featured the stellar debut EP, VENA, from Toronto based Coleman Hell, which if you read our review, we were gushing over. Today, the versatile producer has returned with a new single “2 Heads”, and has introduced yet another alternate glimpse into an impressive production psyche. “2 Heads” most notably takes its cues from a twangy, reverb steeped banjo line, which rests itself nicely on top of Coleman Hell’s smooth vocal track and an airy, melodious synth-pop backdrop. “2 Heads” is the first track we’ve had the pleasure of hearing in advance of a debut LP, Srry Bout Last Nite, so we’ll be tuned in as Coleman Hell’s latest album develops. Until then, get your Coleman Hell fix above.

Unfortunately, we’re a little late to this party. We normally love arriving fashionably late, but this time it stings a little bit. Luckily for us, there are still three dates left on the Anujunadeep North American Tour, including some at solid venues like Verboten, Mod Club, and Sound Bar.

Since it’s inception in 2005, Anjunadeep has continually gained the adoration of the electronic dance community. They now look to bring out some label legends, along with some newcomers to some of the best cities in North America.

We know, we know. Three shows have already come and gone, but three still remain. So press play, head over to the ticket page, and get ready to enjoy acts like: 16 Bit Lolitas, Beckwith, Jody Wisternoff, Lancelot, Lane 8, Martin Roth and Vincenzo.

[Live] IYES – Simmer

IYES
Simmer (live)

To celebrate the still young days of 2015, duo IYES hands off an intimate, stripped down and live demo track entitled ‘Simmer’. After being exposed to their ability to create such rich music with releases ‘Glow‘ & ‘Toys‘ amongst others, it’s exciting to hear a more shadowy side of the pair with this cut. Birthed in their Brighton studio, we find Josh and Melis urging us to be more receptive in the most delicate times of our relationships. It sounds like loyalty. “I will make it work for you. Overcome my fears for you.” This record will help us progress toward being better and stronger partners. Their current single ‘Glow’ is out on the 1st of March, via Love by Mistake/Sony UK. IYES will be performing live @ Hoxton Bar and Kitchen, London next week (tickets available).

STWO – Eden (Nightizm Remix) [TMN PREMIERE]

Eden (Nightizm Remix)

Last week HW&W artist Stwo revealed the winners of his “Eden” remix contest, narrowing down a field of over 400 submissions to just 13. While you may feel like you’ve already had your fill of “Eden” remixes, we’re here to tell you why you need to make room for at least one more. Clocking in at just under six minutes, Nightizm‘s extended reimagining makes for an extremely engrossing listen marked by hypnotic synths, haunting bass and crackling snares. Whereas the original presents itself as an introduction building up to something much larger, Nightizm’s rendition takes a different approach, choosing to arrange an experience that is truly immersive from start to finish.

This rendition of “Eden” is yet another remarkable tune to add to Nightizm’s already impressive resumé. Download the track above, and if you’re not familiar with him yet, make sure to check out the rest of the Toronto native’s excellent catalog over on his official SoundCloud page.

It’s always incredible to see people using their talents to help support those in need, and next month, we get to see that front and center with the fine people behind Beats Drop Cancer.

As a part of a national series of shows, this organization is bringing A-list level talent to the Fog City the day before Valentine’s Day, showcasing John Beaver, The Crystal Method, Bobby Puma and more, all in the name of supporting Lukemia and Lymphoma society. In addition to some top-notch music, you can also expect elements of art, fashion, and dance included in this encompassing charitable experience.

Their end goal is a lofty one (raising $250,000 through this series of events), but one we feel like the dance community is capable of obtaining it. So, pick your tickets up here and enjoy not only the groovy beats, but the fact that you’re doing something to better the world around you.

[House] Julio Bashmore – Kong ft. Bixby

Kong feat. Bixby

There are probably only around a handful of other club producers whom carry with them the same air and aura of production versatility as Bristol dance producer extraordinaire Julio Bashmore. First rising to prominence in the U.K. back in 2009 behind an admirable, foundation laying EP debut on Claude Von Stroke’s illustrious Dirtybird imprint; and bursting into worldwide consciousness with “Battle For Middle You” along with production credits on one of Jessie Ware’s first singles “110%”, Bashmore has become a tastemaking crossover staple between the worlds of underground dance music and mainstream chart hits. The Bristolian’s latest single, and another taste from a February slated LP release after the succulently groovy “Rhythm of Auld”, “Kong”, sees a pairing with London-based crooner Bixby who deftly paints the tune with a welcome smattering of soulful inflections over untethered synth chords, a glowing marimba sample and shuffling cymbals, resulting in yet another glowing ray of house. We’re hoping to see a complete Long Player from JB very soon, but we’ll have to settle for single bites until more information is set in stone. Stream “Kong” above.
