[Compilation] Moving Castle Vol. 004

MC

Moving Castle is back! There’s no denying the influence that this talented group has built, especially with their signature brand reaching some of the highest levels in electronic music (*cough* Skrillex *cough*). Their expansion in such a short time with four projects under their belt is inspiring to say the least, and this newest endeavor finds Moving Castle at a defining point within their rise. With each collection, there’s been an increase in the number of artists that contribute, and the scope of the overall sound they are envisioning flourishes alongside that fact.

The importance of diversification within music can never be overstated, and the inclusion of a myriad of unique upcoming producers, vocalists and beatsmiths has set up this stellar assortment to be their most ambitious project to date. From names new to the compilation series, like Treehaus, Catt Moop and Chet Porter, to founding members, Robokid, AOBeats and Manila Killa, Vol. 004 shines brightly with an all star roster, and the quality reflected throughout speaks volumes as to what Moving Castle is capable of achieving. We’ll go ahead and let the music doing the talking now, so stream the glossy and pristine new volume below. Be sure to grab your own free copy here also!

Justin Jay Talks Dirtybird, Larry Levan, and Marriage Proposals [TMN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW]

Disciples
They Don't Know (Justin Jay Remix)

This month we had the chance to flex our tastemaking muscle by featuring one of the hottest exports in dance music, who has made a name at the tender age of 21 on one of the hottest labels in dance music. Of course, we are speaking of Justin Jay, and Claude VonStroke’s Dirtybird Records cohorts. Last week, the deep and tech-house sparkplug gifted us with a TMN Resident Playlist, and this weekend, we got a chance to get a little more in depth in regards to all things Justin Jay. Check out the entire transcript below.

TMN: First of all, we wanted to thank you for taking the time to be our featured ‘Resident Artist of the Month’. We’ve actually been closely following your career arc since How Goes the Dynamite, which if we’re not mistaken was almost three years ago now, which is absurd to think that you’re only what, 21 years of age now?

JJ: Yeah it’s pretty crazy, man!

TMN: It’s hard to believe how rapidly developed and mature your sound has already become in a relatively short amount of time putting out tangible releases. Especially within a niche in which many American listeners wind up not actually discovering until the usual pit-stops through ‘EDM’, or festival sized dubstep and trap. From a personal standpoint, have you had any exact moments which you feel helped shaped the scope of your music production or steered you away from more commercial sounds?

JJ: Growing up in LA was really powerful because me and my friends were exposed to artists like MSTRKRFT and Justice back in 2007. We got into it then because it sounded new and exciting. That craving for freshness is huge.

TMN: Some of us Ninjas love to geek out about artist’s studios. What programs, machines, synths or anything else are taking up the most amount of your time currently as a producer? And what does your entire studio layout look like when laying down a new Justin Jay track?

JJ: I’m super bare bones. I have a midi keyboard and a laptop, which is all I really use. Although, I recently got a few old-school drum machines, which have been super fun to work with.

Get To Know: Inpetto [TMN Exclusive Interview]

InpettoTMN

German production and DJ duo Inpetto have just released a sublime single on Dirty Soul, an imprint of renowned dance label Be Yourself Music. Titled “Never Too Late” and featuring vocalist Bryan Finlay, it allows the pair to show of their musicality and attention to detail in impressive style. We caught up with Inpetto to hear a little more about their take on deep house.

When did you first both sit down and make music together, and has it always been a part of your family?

Funnily no other (known) family member besides us has a musical background. It was around 1995 when we discovered our interest in making music and spent more and more of our money and time on it. We then did a couple of our own tracks that we sent out to some music labels. Finally in 1999,our first track was released – this was the start of our musical career.

What pulled you in about the Jerk & Bastard remix?

We love that remix, because it is a complete rework of our track just using the sax and the vocals combined with amazing sounds and driving beats. You have to love the kind of remixes where the remixer made a complete new track by using only the main part like the vocal or main melody of the original – like we always do.

When DJing at your live shows do you both take on separate roles, how does it work?

Well, because we are two people, the situation comes where you have different opinions. Someone has to have the last word on decisions, which is the older one. But that doesn’t happen very often!

Outside of electronic music, what do you find yourselves listening to and do you think this is apparent in your productions?

Actually we find ourselves listening to any genre, but not every genre is an inspiration for our tracks. We are big fans of alternative/indie rock like Daughter, Josè Gonzalez or London Grammar, which might play a role in how we use melodies in our tracks.

What do you have planned for the New Year, maybe an EP or even an album?

We have a couple of new, maybe surprising tracks signed in the first part of 2015. Stay tuned, but theres no album planned yet…

[Vinyl Giveaway] Warren G – Regulate…G Funk Era (Album Reissue + Remixes)

Warren G Regulate... G Funk Era
Warren G
Regulate (Destructo & Wax Motif Remix)

Warren G‘s Regulate…G Funk Era album has stood the test of time as a project that helped defined a whole genre along with classics like Dr. Dre‘s The Chronic and Snoop Dogg‘s Dogystyle. Although G-Funk’s prime has passed, it has had a lasting impact not only in hip-hop introducing melodious flows and funky production but also across genres even inspiring the inception of G-House. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the multi-platinum selling classic, Def Jam/Universal put together a re-issue of Regulate…G Funk Era that features 3 EDM remixes of its smooth, timeless title track. It’s only fitting that one of the remixes comes from Australian trap-leaning producer Wax Motif and LA’s own Destructo, who’s recent West Coast EP updates the classic sounds of his home coast. Give Wax and Destructo’s dope take on “Regulate,” which strikes a perfect balance between the original and hard-hitting electronic elements, above.

We’re excited to be giving away a Vinyl and CD of the reissue including the full original album and the remix above along with two more from Jaux and Photek. Enter your email below to enter! We will be accepting participants through next Thursday, 12/18, and the winner will be notified via email the morning of 12/19. If you can’t wait, though, you can also purchase the vinyl/CD/digital version now here.

[Electronica] Dirty South – With You (Jai Wolf Remix)

Dirty South - With You (Jai Wolf Remix)
Dirty South
With You (Jai Wolf Remix)

Having a lousy day? Struggling to find motivation? This magical track will get you going like no other. NY-based producer Jai Wolf just released this Dirty South remix titled “With You”, and being that it’s different than his other work, it’s still refreshing and addicting. The epic synthy intro that eventually replaces the beat drop immediately catches our attention. The synthwaves are bold and catchy, and are the perfect addition to the new style of music Jai Wolf is swaying towards. The subtle vocals combined with a warm, welcoming vibe almost resemble the sound of Porter Robinson.

The talented producer definitely deserves more attention after this epic remix. Check him out on his soundcloud and grab a free download via his Facebook page here. We’re expecting big moves from Jai Wolf soon!
