Runaway (feat. White Sea) [Remix]

New Orleans has a reputation for being a very musical place, so seeing one of its newest hometown heroes, Pell, on a swift ascent comes as no surprise. Over the past year, he’s been touring North America with Kindness, preparing for his festival debut at Buku, and recognized in Spotify’s Emerge program – all of which are reasons why we have him on our radar.

Today, Pell brings us a remix of his song, “Runaway,” that he created in collaboration with M83 & White Sea’s Morgan Kibby (Co-wrote numerous M83 songs, including the hit single “Midnight City”) and producer Ryan Spraker. Leaving the original’s stripped-down feel behind, the trio hits all the right spots on the new remix, using an array of revamped parts, melodies, and more for a track that’ll keep you coming back for more. Have a listen for yourself and check out Pell’s upcoming tour dates to see if he’s coming to a city near you.

Apex Shrine – Can’t Help Myself [TMN Premiere]

Apex Shrine
Can't Help Myself

The St. Louis natives, Apex Shrine, have cooked up a truly classic sound that feel like they time traveled straight out of the late 60’s. With a mix of southern rock and psychedelia, these good ol’ boys shred their way through a prime track that kicks off their debut album, Home Baked in a raucous fashion. Blues influenced riffs and solos are the highlight of “Can’t Help Myself,” as they pair the grit of Wolfmother with the melodic capability of The Raconteurs into their own dynamite sound. The chops they exhibit match up with their alternative appeal nicely, and this single stands as a impressive introduction as to what these Missourians are going to be capable of. Be on the lookout for Home Baked in April and rock out with “Can’t Help Myself” above!

Young Summer – Blood Love (Big Wild Remix) [TMN Premiere]

Blood Love Big Wild Remix
Young Summer
Blood Love (Big Wild Remix)

Big Wild has been building a dedicated following on SoundCloud since the 2013 release of his impressive debut EP, Native Echos. Last year proved a huge one for the LA-based producer, as he continued cranking out a diverse collection of sounds that mix an organic, almost tribal, sensibility towards bass and percussion with lush elements of EDM. It’s little surprise that his forward-thinking style garnered the attention of like-minded ninja favorites, Odesza, who invited him to join the North American leg of their massively successful 2014 No.Sleep tour.

Today, Odesza officially announced the launch of the Foreign Family Collective, a platform the duo will use to highlight their favorite up ‘n coming artists, through which Big Wild will be releasing his next single. With a number of major performances under his belt and support from some of electronic music’s most respected names, the rising producer has positioned himself for a huge 2015 and we’re excited to be bringing you the premiere of his latest remix.

Taking on Young Summer‘s “Blood Love,” Big Wild showcases his versatility utilizing the original’s hauntingly beautiful vocals and a minimal backdrop to lure the listener in before dropping into an absolute explosion of a chorus. There’s a certain emotional accessibility in Big Wild’s music that’s truly amplified on this addicting cut. Give it a spin above and see for yourself. Big Wild will be at SXSW and also embarking on a US tour with Kodak to Graph and OBESØN–check his upcoming tour dates here.

The Score – Catching Fire [TMN PREMIERE]

score
The Score Official
Catching Fire

Every once in a while, an act comes around that embodies the Americana-rich daydreams we often fixate on while focusing on the warmer months. You know the ones – you’re camping with friends, cooking s’mores, drinking whiskey, and listening to music blaring out of your friend’s car. While that friend’s car battery will surely die, those memories will live on in infamy, and The Score writes songs that are the perfect soundtrack for those memories.

Following their monster hit, “Oh My Love,” is no easy task. This tune amassed over two million plays on soundcloud and YouTube and can also be heard in Starbucks nationwide this month. However, “Catching Fire” doesn’t disappoint, instead adding to the general allure that’s radiating off of these guy’s catchy-as-hell vibes.

As we saw before, the LA-based duo has a knack for anthemic pop, artfully crafting easily memorable hooks paired with booming percussion and light, accentuating guitar work. It beckons on associations of other quickly-rising indie pop stars, reminding us of Young Rising Sons, The Griswolds, and CRUISR. All in all, it’s one of those tunes that you just can’t shake, not that you would ever want to.

Be on the lookout for more from these two. You’ll surely be hearing more of them in 2015.

[Playlist] TomorrowWorld Announces 2015 Musical Curators

TOMORROW

It’s hard to even fathom any festivals beyond SXSW and WMC right now, but with TommorrowWorld’s recent announcement, we’ll gladly take a break from the impending madness to share the news.

Just last week, the promoters of TomorrowWorld shared some insight on what’s in store for the festival’s third year. While we’re still on our toes for the first phase of lineup to be announced, TomorrowWorld has announced their 2015 musical partners that will be curating the festival’s various stages.

From Hardwell’s Revealed stage, to the Hospital Records stage, to a Future Classic stage, planning your show schedule is going to be a difficult task. Every genre of dance music will be represented to some degree at the fairytale-themed festival, and these curators are a true statement to the caliber of talent that TomorrowWorld is known for. In addition to the artist curated stages, themed stages will also be present as the festival brings back It’s a Trap! and Mythical Frames while also introducing two new themed stages – a Future House stage and the L!ve stage.

Last but not least, for the .0001% of you that have a legitimate conflict with this year’s festival, TomorrowWorld is not planning on leaving anytime soon. As of last week, the Chattahoochee Hills City Council officially extended the festival’s land usage permit for TomorrowWorld in 2025. It seems the people of Georgia want to keep the mystical event around for their kids to experience as well.

In celebration of this curator announcement, we’ve pulled together playlists from them all. While we can’t guarantee that any of the acts from these will make the cut, they should give you a strong indication of what to expect.
