Save Tonight Feat. Gavrielle & Nick Goldston (Win & Woo Remix)
With many of us on Spring break, escaping work to locations where we can bathe in sunlight, artists might as well start unleashing tracks that remind us of summer. Win and Woo’s heads are definitely in the right place as they release a radiant remix of Louis Vivet’s “Save Tonight” cover. Taking the electronic rendition of Eagle Eye Cherry’s original hit track, Win and Woo soften the electro elements and blood-pumping beats in favor of tropical percussion and flute synths. The combination offers a euphoric island-feel, immediately transporting the listener to paradise (unless, of course, you’re one of the lucky ones who literally is in a paradise). But whether you’re in Cancun, or being lazy on your parents’ couch, all will agree that this track is a vacation for the ears.
NGHTMRE & SLANDER
Trying to stay motivated to get through the mid-week struggle? Here’s something that’ll help you. Production duo Slander have teamed up once again with fellow LA-based producer NGHTMRE for another banger. Tweaking Loleatta Holloway‘s vocals and pairing them with uplifting melodies, the joined forces knock this one out of the park. The high pitched vocals definitely give it a majestic vibe, while Slander’s signature big room drops highlight what follows. The combination of these different elements works wonders, which are showcased most notably in the vastly contrasted drops. Heaven trap, as they call it, is the most fitting description for this epic track.
Released as a free download, “Gud Vibrations” is the third track off their upcoming joint EP titled Nuclear Bonds. Slander and NGHTMRE continue to show their talent and diversity with consistently exceptional collaborations. Listen for yourself above.
Shortly after premiering their latest single on Annie Mac’s radio show, Nero have officially released ”The Thrill.” The UK veterans have continued to remain a relevant force in electronic music mixing the heavenly voice of Alana Watson with melodic electro and intense bass breakdowns.”The Thrill” carries on that sound bringing the vocals to the forefront before building into an infectious bass-heavy chorus. We don’t have much details yet on what they’ve got in the works for 2015 but this one’s a great sign if it’s any indication of what’s to come.
living room flow
Feeling a little generous this afternoon, Jhené Aiko has dropped off a soulful little gem for all her fans. “Living Room Flow” is typical bedroom fare (even if the locale has been shifted), and has all the elements of a successful baby-maker: it’s sexy, slow-moving and puts the mind at ease. It’s a neat little loosie, from the wonderful songstress, and serves as a nice reminder of what she can bring to the table. We have no idea whether this is attached to any projects, but we’re hoping it’s a sign of something to come. Either way, stream the tune above and check back here for more information on any future mixtapes or albums.
Problems Problems (BLU J Remix)
After permeating our ears with their sensational remix of Galimatias and Alina Baraz’s mesmerizing original, ‘Fantasy‘, BLU J are back and this time with much more heat. Taking on the likes of Los Angeles heart throb pop vocalist, FRANKIE and her most recent hit, ‘Problems Problems’, the producer duo decided to re-invent the original and turn it into a Future Bass face melter from start to finish. We here at TMN are fans of both FRANKIE and BLU J, and now that the two have joined forces we seem to have lost all ability to “even”.
Filled with aquatic bursts of piercing synths, heavy bouts of 808 madness, and Frankie’s harmonic voice guiding us deep into the rabbit hole, BLU J gives us more the reason to keep this on repeat for the rest of the day. Helping us out with a co-premiere of this fantastic new track are our friends over at Run The Trap, because who doesn’t love them? So satisfy your Thursday thirst and cop yourself a free download while you’re at it.
Kicks N Licks are coming at us from the West Coast with a new mix called “REFILL.” Thirty minutes of banger after banger is what these two scrapped together, with tracks coming from acts like MUST DIE!, Barely Alive, Habstrakt, Jauz and Dabin. Aside from bringing in quality tracks from other producers, Kicks N Licks dish out some of their old music, as well as five of their own IDs and one complete ID that has no artist labeled with it. Electronic styles of music that are more hip-hop oriented (trap, twerk, dubstep) are mostly what you get within this mix that you can download for free. Anybody traveling to or from SXSW this week definitely should hop on this bad boy. If you’d like to see these guys live soon, check out their upcoming dates below, with more to be announced soon.

Downlink & Twofold
Everybody’s saying dubstep is dead, but they have yet to venture to the “Darkside.” We mean that both in a macro and micro sense, with the latter more specifically referring to this collaboration between Downlink and Twofold. You want heavy? You got it here. These guys don’t mess around one bit, bringing the gnarliest basses you can expect to find anywhere. The nuances of each have their own appetizing qualities that you just want to eat up for as long as you can. Rage hard, and don’t let up because there are no doubts that Downlink or Twofold held back nothing. Love having your face melted by the “Darkside?” Get yourself a copy of the Uplink Audio release.
