[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #81

chill dojo

There’s no better way to wind down the long weekend than lounging about with with a dose of chill music, and we just so happen to have a stack of quality tunes to share for playlist #81. If you caught our new Kygo post from earlier in the week, then it’s really no surprise to be seeing his name atop this list. Kygo + Benjamin Francis Leftwich is just the perfect combination to be happening in music right now, and we hope there’s plenty more of this to come. Thankfully he’s not the only artist to be dabbling in these sweet vocals, as we’ve got another Chill Dojo favorite in Manila Killa providing more summertime vibes with that same floating sensation crafted throughout. We’ve never pictured Norway as a tropical destination, but you could easily be fooled by the glorious sounds consistently pumped out by its artists. Bearson’s remix of “Savanna” certainly hits the sweet spot as far as this style goes, serving as your musical portal straight into the isles of the Caribbean. From there, we shift gear straight into the some future beats from Jonah Baseball. There’s not much out there we can tell you on this new name in the scene, but he’s got support from Lindsay Lowend, and his newest release ‘Louisville Slugger’ is straight fire, so by that token we’re firmly in his team as well. As far as other new names go, the music collective Moving Castle has just brought out a fresh compilation overflowing with insane future sounds, so be prepared for the next four tracks to wow your ears like you wouldn’t believe. Sydney producer UNO Stereo will continue that feeling with his bouncey remix of ‘Dreams’, not only delivering a killer instrumental but masterfully molding in the band’s vocals to his style. Add his name to your list of Australian artists to follow with close attention. Speaking of attention, ‘Latch’ remixes have certainly been a hot topic over the past week, and Maryland’s MisterMack has given us one of the best with his slick interpretation. Flowing through different styles and emotions, this version will capture your full attention and have your body grooving for an experience that is a natural human response to musical genius like this. We end this week’s write-up with one of the smoothest sounds to hit the blogosphere this week in the form of ‘Foolish’ from UK duo Blonde. Ryan Ashley serves up some stunning vocal work over some serious poolside vibes, making this one a certified jam to be played out across the warmer months.

This all comes together as the perfect pick-me-up to get you going again after the weekend’s festivities. As for us, the search for good music never stops. Peace out.

[TMN DOES MIAMI RIGHT] Ultra + WMC 2014 Review

1504307_10152156291872739_5015679694235573569_o

Welcome to my Ultra-world. It is a land filled with sun, sex, sounds, and sea. The energy here is relentless, the pace is fast. People come from around the globe to experience the narcotic pulse of bass that emanates throughout the city. Come with us as we voyage in to the depths of debauchery and dance, and experience the glory that is known as Miami Music Week.

Pool parties are a mainstay of the Winter Music Conference, so let our journey begin in South Beach at the Raleigh Hotel pool for the DIM MAK Miami Beach Party. Here we can observe the one and only Steve Aoki in his natural habitat. Aoki provides copious entertainment for all, and he is generous enough to even give some of his devoted following cake and champagne! Though very little of these accoutrements actually make it in to anyone’s mouths, it’s the thought that counts. Other notables to be taken from the environment are Deorro, The Chainsmokers, 3lau, Felix Cartel, and Autoerotique. Amidst the hard hitting, fist pumping, in-your-face beats that DIM MAK records is known for, we can’t help but to be pleased with the plethora of beauty and movement that surrounds us. A large pool waits patiently behind, framed in a soft blue hue and coaxing weary partiers towards it cool waters with the promise of buoyancy. As the party wanes, we trickle with the masses back on to Collins Avenue and become engulfed in an ocean of neon, skin, and cars that cost more than most families homes.

New Dim Mak Music!

Back across the bay and just a couple miles north of the Ultra Music Festival, we now travel to a chic and sensuous lounge nestled in the heart of Wynwood. The famed area is known for its walls; ever-changing murals blanket the buildings. The crackle and hiss of spray paint can be heard around every corner and an aroma of acrylic permeates the nostrils like a vandal’s potpourri. Be mindful of the razor wire on your right as we meander towards The Social Lubricant. TSL’s staff holds up to the lounge’s name, offering courteous and brisk service along with reasonable drink prices (for Miami). Absorb the deep house beats put on tonight by the likes of underground sensation Thugfucker. That’s right, Thugfucker. While the American and Icelandic combination of Greg Oreck and Holmar Filipsson could certainly play until 5am, the line up tonight will not require them to. Both of the boys are in excellent spirits this evening from the looks of it. Their connection with their crowd is palpable. Each twist and turn of their set seems to mean something, each bassline tickles the stapes in a profound way. Don’t forget about Thugfucker’s buddies either. Matt Tolfrey, Nick Curly, Francesca Lombardo, and many others are here as well to ensure auditory satisfaction. Are you hungry? There’s a sushi bar in the back corner to compliment your ethanol if you so choose…I would highly suggest it, we’ll be here awhile.

Thugfucker live

We’ve shown you South Beach and gone underground in Wynwood, so let’s venture now to what everybody has been waiting for; let’s go to Ultra Music Festival 2014! A cab is necessary because parking is the worst clusterfuck you’ve ever seen in your life. I am scheduled to interview Art Department, Paper Diamonds, and Vello Virkhaus prior to partaking in any of the festivities. You’ll notice that there, regrettably, is no press area within Ultra’s grounds…there IS, however, a mega yacht docked right next to the grounds that we can use. After delightful conversation coupled with a Krewella photo-op and a chance brush by with Zedd (he has sparkly eyes, pay no mind to my screaming “Zedd! You’re awesome!”), we tromp through the hidden workings back stage to make our way over to the Underground stage. Cue the sensory overload!

[Exclusive Interview] TMN Sits Down With option4, Keepers. and Need & Necessity at Snowball

Keepers
Hello (Original Mix)
Lemme See (Original Mix) **FREE DOWNLOAD**

This past weekend at Snowball Music Festival, we were treated to a wonderful palate of eclectic artists, all in the heart of Denver Broncos territory at Sports Authority Field. From major acts like Busta Rhymes, Pretty Lights, Yeasayer, Twin Shadow, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Griz, Knife Party and MiMOSA to the amazingly well represented house tent with names including MK, J. Phlip, Graff, Justin Jay, Maxxi Soundsystem and The Juan Mclean; it was safe to say our tastes for all different genres of music were well satiated. We also had the chance to catch up with some of our absolute favorite up and coming house artists option4, as well as the duos of Keepers. and Need & Necessity round-table style in their home city to talk about their burgeoning record label Night Supply, their drinks of choice, spirit animals, Miley Cyrus and a whole lot more. And who better than these three entities to give us a little insight into the climate of dance music in their own state? Check out the full transcript below.

The Music Ninja (TMN): Alright, The Music Ninja here at Snowball Music Festival with option4, Keepers. and Need & Necessity. First things first, I know we can be a bit intimidating so how about a round of Fireball shots? [five minute pause from interview] Okay, let’s get the ball rolling!

TMN: Now, we’re obviously here in your guys’ back yard of Denver. A lot of people don’t realize this, but all of you have been throwing and curating proper house music events in the city for over three years as TheHundred and have built relationships with most every dance artist on the festival. With this year being so heavy on house music, what has it been like to see your collective work begin to take a bit of a hold through more mainstream outlets like a Snowball Music Festival? Let’s start with option4.

option4: Man it’s been awesome to see so many people that might not normally be into this style of music fully support and accept it. For example, last night MK was killer, J. Phlip was killer and all those people choosing to be in the house tent as opposed to some of the other stages. That was something that felt very tangible, very real. It was kind of a weird stage to begin with because nobody could really hear the music outside of the tent and it was a little bit tucked away, but that thing was still absolutely packed.  It seemed like there were a lot of people there for that style of music, so it was nice to see house music have a real footing at an American festival.

TMBA – Obsessed (Our Time Remix) [TMN Premiere]

TBMA
Obsessed (feat. Lynn Gvnn) (Our Time Remix)

It’s Monday and the coffee is brewing, the music is blasting, and the hangover is just now starting to fade away. The perfect way to cure any case of the post-weekend blues is to simply indulge yourself in some hyphy new tunes to prepare yourself for the week to come. This week isn’t like any other week, my friends, because it is officially the start of festival season. The TMN team is gearing up for weekend 1 of Coachella, which in my books, just means it’s about to be an epic weekend full of shenanigans. In lieu of this week’s festivities, we have the perfect track to describe every ninja’s feelings about Coachella, all thanks to the artists Our Time and TMBA.

TMBA just recently put out their original new dubstep tune, “Obsessed,” which left everyone obsessing over the replay button. With a slew of artists throwing out their renditions of this gorgeous track, we were recently sent a unique electro house spin on this song by Tulsa natives, Our Time. Right from the beginning, the track starts us off with a heavy kick and catchy beat that builds up into a soft, melodic intro for Lynn Gvnn to showcase her unique voice. Our Time placed a lot of emphasis on the vocals and dirty breakdowns in their remix for TMBA, in which they took an adorable (yet heavy) sounding song and transformed it into a nasty, hectic dance anthem that is  sure to make people lose their mind. Try not to obsess over this one, ninjas and have a happy Monday!

[ULTRA 2014 Schedule Recommendation] TMN’s Must See Guide to Ultra (Miami 3/28 – 3/30)

1239423_10152109764737739_1828179057_n

Ahh. The time is finally here. All winter long we’ve been angrily looking at the calendar, not-so-patiently awaiting the start of festival season here in the states. To kick things off in 2014, we’re obviously overwhelmingly excited for what Ultra 2014 is bringing to the table.

As you would guess, this year’s line up is stacked, as usual. There’s a veritable pantheon of EDM legends, coupled with some amazing up and coming artists as well. We traditionally like to do a full stream of everyone that’s going to be there, but this year we’re going to change it up. Instead of giving you a tiny sample of each artist who’s playing, we’re going to give you our recommendations, day by day.

Scheduling is going to be tricky, so make sure you set out a proper game plan. It might be hard to stick to after a few beverages, but take it from us – don’t miss out on seeing your favorite artist, or any of these suggestions below:

Chainsmokers – Stage 7

Picked by Bryn Carter & Clayton Warwick

M.I.A. – Live Stage

Picked by Eric Gossett

mia300-790e9b19a08dbe8b6be20c05655262c4260e563f-s6-c30
TMN Staff Comment: The ever-controversial M.I.A. is definitely a “don’t miss” performance at this year’s Ultra Music Festival. The singer just released her critically-acclaimed album Matangi last year and is currently being sued by the NFL for $15 million for her performance at the Super Bowl. So if that was what they (couldn’t) show at the Super Bowl, I can only imagine how wild her uncensored stage show must be.

Picked by Clayton Warwick

12thplanet

TMN Staff Comment: Last year, I had the pleasure of introducing someone to trap, and did so by watching 12th Planet’s set on Sunday afternoon. This well respected, LA based producer will be throwing down a massive set full of filthy beats. If you want to get down and dirty, don’t miss this set.

TMN Staff Comment: You say you’re going to Ultra to only listen to beats? Don’t limit yourself. A break in the bass will be welcomed, and who better to give you said break than Chi-Town native, Chance the Rapper?

Borgore talks about Aokifying America, Charity and the Booty Monster [TMN EXCLUSIVE]

1441306_10151951363565845_1577657462_n

There are few names in the EDM industry that equate to sheer, unadulterated fun. Steve Aoki is one of them, bringing an onslaught of crazy, on-stage antics wherever he goes. From champagne to cake, no stones are left unturned when it comes to putting on one hell of a show.

Over the past month, the Aokify America tour has been cruising from city to city, bringing it’s zany antics, larger than life beats and top notch talent to cities from coast to coast. One of the featured names on this bill is Israeli producer, Borgore. We had a chance to speak to this baron of bass when the tour stopped in at the Ogden Theater in Denver, Colorado. If you get one thing out of this interview, it’s this: do not fear the Booty Monster.

Borgore feat. Waka Flocka Flame & Paige
Wild Out (Club Mix)

TMN: I’m sitting down tonight to talk with the ever talented producer, Mr. Borgore himself. Thanks for taking the time to chat with us tonight. Let’s kick it off by talking about why you’re here in Denver, being on the Aokify America Tour. Steve was recently quoted in the Denver Westword saying, “I want to maximize fun. I want to break the fun meter. Have you guys succeeded in that so far?

Borgore: 100%. The line up has been very versatile, and it kills it every night. Waka and myself are playing almost every show, except for maybe one or two. We also have amazing openers like Deorro, which is probably one of the coolest DJs right now. We had Dirtyphonics, we had Felix Cartal. I bet I missed someone, but we destroy. Out of this world. Amazing.

TMN: You’ve been on tour with a lot of different acts in your career. How do the crowds on this tour compare to ones in the past?

Borgore: I think that the people who come to this show are very open minded to a lot of different genres. It’s just good times. You can explore whatever you want to do in your set and they’re down with it. It’s really good times.

TMN: Are they rowdier than most?

Borgore: Um. I mean, the only thing that is kind of difficult with 16 year olds is they cannot get stupid drunk. You know? So a lot of times you play like to older people…but at the same time, younger kids go stupid rowdy without getting drunk. The tour is pretty fucking rowdy though.

TMN: We have to guess that there are some tour shenanigans going on. Can you shine some light on any pranks or mischief that have happened so far?

Borgore: We’ve done some crazy shit like paintball, and we’re going to go snowboarding tomorrow and stuff like that. I think the main shenanigan is Steve (Aoki) waking me up every fucking morning, when I’m hungover as fuck and all I want to do is die in my bed. He wakes me up, “We’re going to go work out.” I have to work out with him, or I owe him $100 for charity. At the same time, if he doesn’t wake up to work out, he owes $100 to charity.

[Fresh] Flux Pavilion – Freeway EP

Flux

A new EP by one of our favorite bleached blonde producers from the UK?

Count me in Flux, count me in.

Yesterday, Flux Pavilion dropped his new EP ‘Freeway’, 5 tracks that all show just how diverse of an artist he truly is by the beats, the melodies and who he collaborates with to make this EP one for the books. Teaming up with Steve Aoki for ‘Steve French’ then pairing his intense beats with Dillon Francis’ light hearted electronic flow for ‘I’m The One’, Flux shows he is the man of the hour. Flux’s song ‘Gold Love’ with the vocals of miss Rosie Oddie is one of my favorites. Hard and intense electronic beats, what we have come to know and love from Flux, drives this song with the high pitched, unique vocals of Oddie. Then there is ‘Freeway’, a different sound for Flux, where he has decided to slow down his intensity and flow the electronic melodies from one measure to the next. The song tells the journey, a musical journey and an intimate journey to find oneself. Flux also changes it up with the last song on the EP ‘Mountains And Molehills’ featuring Turin Brakes. Taking on an almost rock sound mixed in with the right electronic twists, this song feels like something out of a video game.

Another grand EP from the man FP, keep rocking you dirty blonde UK man.
