60+ Songs to Prepare for Treasure Island Music Festival in SF, 10/18-19 [Event Preview + Playlist]

timf2014-sfweekly-fullpgLineups for major music festivals often boast 100+ artists, which although in theory is a great concept, can end up being overwhelming and frustrating when you realize the impossibility of seeing every act on the bill. San Francisco’s Treasure Island Music Festival, a collaboration between Noise Pop and Another Planet Entertainment, provides one of the few exceptions to this conundrum electing to go with fewer artists and alternating sets at only two stages. Having attended last year, we found this to be a genius, albeit seemingly obvious, solution making the experience far more relaxed for festival-goers without sacrificing any quality in the music. Aside from the unique arrangement, the backdrop of Treasure Island overlooks both the Bay and Golden Gate bridges and has one of the more stunning sunsets the Bay Area has to offer. For anyone who will be attending this year, we also highly recommend checking out the non-stop Silent Disco stage courtesy Silent Frisco.

To help you all prepare for what should be an amazing weekend of music, we’ve put together a massive playlist including every single artist on the TIMF lineup because, with no overlapping sets, you will actually have the opportunity to see them all. Whether you’ve already got your ticket, are still on the fence or can’t make it this year, we hope this serves as a fun, introduction to a dynamic collection of musicians. One and two-day passes for Treasure Island Music Festival are still available so, if you like what you hear below, grab your tickets HERE.

[Progressive House] Moiez Feat. Larcy – Illusions (Original Mix)

Moiez feat. LARCY
Illusions (Original Mix) [Radio Edit]

There’s nothing more refreshing than waking up on a Sunday morning to a nice cup of coffee, headphones over your ears, and an uplifting new original from Moiez and LARCY to help us get through the rest of our day. Despite what anyone says, (good) Progressive House will always have a special place in our hearts because it always takes us back to our favorite festival moments where we shared the PLUR with everyone around. Moiez just gave us an entirely new reason to fall back in love with this genre in his latest original, “Illusions”, which features the beautiful vocals from LARCY. Her stunning voice adds depth and meaning to this powerful instrumental in which she guides us through an illusory world of shear inspiration. Moiez’s stellar production gives us the piano breaks we crave for and the breakdowns we long for, so Tiesto better watch out because “Illusions” just might give him a run for his 2010-2011 run. With early support coming from dance musics favorite selfie duo, The Chainsmokers, Moiez and LARCY are well on their way to success and this song is proof they’re headed in the right direction. So sit back, relax, and prepare for the goosebumps to surface across every inch of your body.

'You've Got The Love' (Prince Fox Remix) [Republic/Casablanca Records]

As we prepare for yet another weekend of pandemonium, we can’t help but get our Friday going with the latest from up and coming TMN favorite, Prince Fox. After gaining much support from his most recent releases, Prince Fox has racked up a substantial following on his social media outlets and has everyone biting at the bit for more music. We’ve been a fan of his since the earlier days of his coming and believe he’s giving us a peek into the future. Today we are stoked to share his latest Future Bass phenomena of Florence & The Machine’s “You’ve Got The Love”. Honing in on his signature side-chained synths, chopped vocals, and powerful progressive builds, Prince Fox has yet to fail us in his attempt to shine bright like a diamond (hmmm….remix idea?). So as you prepare for the festivities for the night, make sure to kick things off the Prince Fox way because you’ll definitely be feeling the love after a few more beers. Cheers, ninjas!

[Synth-Pop] Mansions on the Moon – The Truth

Mansions On The Moon
The Truth

Consistently churning out some of the most well-composed alt-pop burners has been the modus operandi of Mansions on the Moon since their inception. We’ve been attentive fans in some way, shape or form since their first ever Diplo produced mixtape and on. The So-Cal troupe has been leaking singles from their forthcoming debut self-titled LP since July, most notably “Don’t Tell” and “Somewhere Else Tonight”, and with today’s release of their latest exposed single “The Truth”, we’ve realized Mansions has something very textured and special to release to their fans very soon. Every track thus far has filled a different role, whether it’s an upbeat melodious pop opus, an indie-rock leaning gem or slow searing ballads; and “The Truth” slides into its own place nicely. With an airy, atmospheric 80′s soul, “The Truth” reveals yet another ripple of production psyche and we’re beyond excited for the album to drop. Happy Friday Ninjas, you made it. Now listen to some beautifully arranged indie-pop and let the feel goods wash over you.

Say My Name (Luke Shay Remix)

We know, we know…there are at least 1,000 different versions of this song going around the internet. But hey! That’s what happens when a remix contest pops up on producers radars. Now that the official remixes have made their wave, up and coming artists like, Luke Shay, are biting at the bit to show the world how to take things to the next level. We here at TMN are big supporters of Luke Shay and we love how he is able to think outside of the box with Progressive House productions. Whether it be his Adventure Club “Wonder” remix or his most recent official remix of Jaymes Young’s “Habits Of My Heart”, Shay just knows how to infect us with a serious case of progressive feels.

Today, we are happy to share his entry for the “Say My Name” remix contest and it will guarantee blow your socks off. As soon as you press play, you are welcomed with a gorgeous piano intro that effortlessly progresses into a flawless chord progression full of emotion. At some point, Shay throws a curve ball with some trap-style snares and blends it perfectly with his signature synth breakdowns and Zyra’s mesmerizing voice. This has to be one of our favorite remixes and what better way to start your Friday off than with Luke Shay? If you dig this remix, be sure to vote for him here!

Hey there, ninjas. Are you sitting at home, slowly putting together your Halloween playlists? Well, if you’re anything like us, you’re probably doing just that, and we have a tune that’s sure to please the audible appetites of whatever dance floor you’re getting ready to own.

About a year ago, we posted Koyote’s original version of this, labeling it as one of the better mashups we’ve come across. Well, just in time for our favorite holiday, this Santa Barbara based DJ/Producer has thrown up his “REDUX” version, which makes good use of the “Scream” stems provided on Splice. As most of you know, Henry Fong and J-Trick are some of the first big artists to release their project file on the new sharing site, and producers, including Koyote, jumped at the chance to work with it.

Garnering support from Laidback Luke, TJR, Tommie Sunshine, DJs from Mars, and more, “Scream for Another Brick in the Wall (Koyote ‘REDUX’ Edit’) is a meticulous blend of different songs, including the legendary vocals from “Another Brick in the Wall.” It’s infectiously energetic, not only providing an unavoidable call to get up and boogie, but also ensuring that the crowd will be singing along to those unforgettable lyrics.

Big ups, Koyote.

[Electro] Wax Motif X Hunter Siegel – All Night Man

Wax Motif X Hunter Siegel
All Night Man

Get your shuffle pants on because Wax Motif just came out with this new banger titled “All Night Man”! The Sydney-born DJ teamed up with Colorado-based producer Hunter Siegel to create this electro goody, and they certainly did not disappoint. The hardhitting bass definitely takes the spotlight of this tune, followed by this deep robotic voice sample that repeats throughout the track. The hardstep takes you to the breakdown in the middle, making you take a second to appreciate how underrated commercial dance music is.

This is the first we’ve heard from the talented producer ever since his performance at Hard Summer, but he’s definitely making a name for himself in the electro house genre. We are excited to see more of him.
