[Electro-House] Felix Leiter ft Penny Foster – Paradise

Felix
Felix Leiter Ft Penny Foster
Paradise (Original)

There has been quite a few songs lately produced by EDM artists that have wonderful female vocals and this is just one to add to the list. UK producer Felix Leiter has released his single ‘Paradise’ featuring the vocals of Penny Foster. A classic electro house tune, this song will keep any listener dancing from start to finish. Felix carries a strong electronic melody through the whole song, paired with a piano, and builds the intensity up from start to end. Foster’s sexy and raw sound adds a certain flavor to the song, intertwining the listener into her story of finding someone and now she knows paradise. By the end of the song, we all know what paradise looks like, Felix on the tables and Foster singing along.

HAEZER – Ghetto [TMN PREMIERE]

HAEZER | Ghetto

If you need something to help get your ass in gear this Monday morning, look no further. South African baron of bass HAEZER has something that’s a lot stronger than that cup of coffee in your hands.

On December 2nd, HAEZER released his latest EP, Gold Plated Frequencies, on Tasty Records. While this EP is available on iTunes, Beatport and Spotify, today is your first opportunity to hear “Ghetto,” streaming via Soundcloud. What can you expect from this tune? The lead in has heavily industrial sound, supercharged with crackling atmospheric sounds, and a eerie repetitious piano sample, creating a tremendous depth. From their the track cascades into glitchy synths, gigantic bass hits and positively devastating drops.

The chills we experienced when we first heard Dog Blood came back while listening to this tune. As soon as we got over our goosebumps, we immediately started dancing around the room. We’re pretty sure you’ll enjoy a similar experience.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #66

chill dojo

So it’s that busy time of the year again when everything can get all too much in the lead up to Christmas. Don’t fear though, because some of our favourite artists have been working away as well, and as a result we have another stacked edition for a much needed dose of chill.

Chicago’s mashup machine, Ricky Cervantes, takes sultry to the next level with the sexiest of lounge mixes, blending the vocals of Ellie Goulding with the smooth production of Penthouse Penthouse. We don’t need to point out what music like this should be used for, so make sure you enjoy it in the best way possible. But that’s not the only thing that will bring a smile to your face this week, because that is Wave Racer’s specialty and he’s outdone himself again with another summer anthem. His sound is like pure happiness bottled into 3 minutes. Simply replay again and again for lasting effects. Fellow Sydney producer Basenji boasts a similar game with a style much akin to Cashmere Cat. His name was all over the Trap Dojo this week, but the chill vibe of ‘Dawn’ was simply too good not to highlight again in this playlist. Any guesses where our next featured artist comes from? There’s definitely something special happening in Sydney right now, because talented duo Cosmo’s Midnight also let loose a double A-side single that too is ready-built for the hot Australian summer. We just can’t get enough of that bouncy future sound, and it won’t take long before you’re hooked on it as well. The Sydney takeover continues with Flume’s right hand man and other half of What So Not, Emoh Instead, who switches things up with a deep house remix of Elizabeth Rose’s club hit, ‘The Good Life’. This one is sure to dominate the festival season down-under, but it will likely induce sweaty dancing wherever it’s played. Ok, time to leave Australia now, but that’s only because our favourite Canadian Kaytranada has enticed us over with another one of his signature jams, this time going to work on the upcoming Disclosure remix album. The vibe is everything you’ve come to expect from one of the very best in the game right now, so don’t go sleeping on this one. And if this has suddenly brought on an intense craving for more beats, Paris’ Fitzroy can satisfy your needs with this track off his newly released Noah EP. It’s a guaranteed head-bopper.

All this music has sure kept us busy as well. Make sure to save some time for yourself in this next week. Peace out.

Sunday Night Soul [Vol. 5]

Sunday Night Soul

It’s the middle of December, which for many of us means our Holiday break is just an arm’s length away. Of course there’s some hurdles to get through along the way. Whether it’s a hellish finals week packed with little to no sleep, or having to endure office parties while donning your ugliest Holiday sweaters (admittedly, the second option sounds a bit less stressful), we’re here to give you a few moments of reprise as you sort through your hectic schedule.

The 90′s are alive and well in this week’s edition of Sunday Night Soul. From old school remixes of Aaliyah, Sade and Mary J. Blige, to throwback tinged offerings from Uness, Phony Ppl, and Jeff Bernat, it’ll be nearly impossible for you not to feel at least a slight tinge of nostalgia. Of course we can’t forget about the present, and with that in mind, we’ve also got plenty of relaxing tunes from the likes of XOV, Daniel Wilson, Niia, Alina Baraz, Blackbear and many more. Now I know your time is precious, so before I take up any more of it, I’ll let you get started with the playlist below. We promise you won’t be disappointed.

[Soul] Ella Eyre – Love Me Like You

ella-eyre
Ella Eyre
Love Me Like You

Beautiful songstress Ella Eyre has been making waves in the music scene. At just 19 years old, the British singer has a signature voice that immediately draws the listener’s attention on any track. Her latest single, “Love Me Like You,” finds the rising star delivering a soulful quality over Two Inch Punch‘s bass and horn-heavy production. There is a richness in the raw emotion of her voice and for a singer so young, this is a catchy ballad that listeners of all ages can get into. A bit of pop, jazz, and a little dance, this infectious single invokes a heavy tone that has a timeless quality to it. Stream the track above, and keep your eyes peeled for more from Ella as we head into 2014.

[Acoustic] Jaymes Young – Moondust (Stripped)

Moondust (Stripped)

Just a man and his guitar. Sometimes that’s all it takes to produce a masterpiece. We learned a few things from Jaymes Young during our last interview with him. First, he and his guitar have been attached at the hip for nearly a decade, and second, “Moondust” was one of his favorite creations from his well revered Dark Star mixtape. This “stripped” version of the single is exactly what it sounds like, breaking the song down to its very core elements. There’s an argument to be made here that this newer revision in its raw form may actually resonate better than the original, but I’ll leave the debate up to all of you. In the meantime, just appreciate the fact that we now have two versions of this spectacular tune.

[Good Lord] James Vincent McMorrow – Red

Red Dust

Call it a man crush. Call me a fan boy. Whatever you want to label my affinity with James Vincent McMorrow’s heavenly voice is fine with me. I’ll calmly dodge your verbal arrows as I enjoy the other worldly experience that is listening to him sing.

In one of the most highly anticipated albums of 2014 (in my eyes, at least) we’re offered up another sampling of what’s to come from this Dubliner. With a slow strike of a bass drum, haunting vocal samples and some understated piano keys, James once again is able to take us away from all of our troubles, slowly melting away the week with his incredible voice.

Post Tropical is out on January 14th, and is guaranteed to be nothing short of sensational. With a voice like that, it’s hard to think that it would be anything less.
