[House] Born Dirty & Anna Lunoe – Badass

Born Dirty & Anna Lunoe

Born Dirty and Anna Lunoe are bad asses without question. It makes sense that they’d come together for a collaboration which is just what they’ve done with “Badass” on Mad Decent. You wouldn’t necessarily think such a club banger would have been started during a pregnancy, but you’d be wrong.

After the initial start and a little hiatus, Born Dirty and Anna Lunoe came back together to finish this party starter. The liberating record simply asks for you to let your inhibitions fall by the way side so you can live it up and dance. The retro-inspired tune has everything going right for it from the grooves to the vocal to all the minor little details that might go unnoticed upon first listen. If you wanna feel “Badass” then you’re about to thanks to this record. Get your copy today.

[Multi-Genre] Bad Royale – We’re All We Need EP

There are a ton of producers who are all talk about having no limits when it comes to genres. Most of that is just talk, as those same producers pretty much keep within arms reach of a certain sound. Bad Royale actually lives it. They’ve already proven what they could do with the harder styles of dance music time and time again, but now they flip the switch to bring something entirely new.

Their new EP, We’re All We Need, dropped today in partnership with Anjunabeats and Mad Decent. You’re probably wondering how the hell those two fit together, but it will all make sense after you listen to the three singles that make up the project. As it has been in the past, Bad Royale enlist collaborators including Ruby Chase, Kim Nain and Flipo.

“Blue Sky Action” introduces us to the new sonic territory, where Bad Royale slow things down for an extremely ethereal, vibe-ridden record. It’s not what we may be used to, but it’s just as dope as what we are used to. Next comes the title track, a more upbeat, poppy tune that is absolutely perfect for radio stations all across the globe. “Fly To New York” is more along the lines of what we expect from Bad Royale, but it still has its own fresh flash and flare. We’re All We Need is a must have, plain and simple. Grab your copy today.

[Multi-Genre] Bad Royale – Immutable Timeline EP

Bad Royale stands out above most acts for several reasons. One is their combined personalities that turn heads, and another is their music that get heads banging. Their unique style is unrivaled, and they continue to put out records that increase in quality each time out. The most recent outing was with Mad Decent via their EP Immutable Timeline.

Immutable Timeline is another five track project that is jam packed with the boys’ Caribbean bass sound. The really cool thing about them is no matter where they take the sound, whether it’s through trap like with “Dutty Heart” or moombahton with “All We Need Is Love,” is that they kill it time and time again without delivering anything with a hint of stale. There are few acts that can crank out records at the Bad Royale pace, and their are even fewer who can put out only fire tracks. The Immutable Timeline EP is another example of their prestige within the music scene as a whole. They didn’t put this one together alone, as is usually the case since they work with collaborators. This time around they created magic with IAmStylez, Konshens, Suit of Black and their buds Bunji Garlin and Richie Loop. Head on over to iTunes to get your copy of the EP. It’s worth every penny.

[Future/Trap] SLUMBERJACK – Open Fire feat. Daniel Johns

Open Fire (feat. Daniel Johns)

SLUMBERJACK is one of the most hype electronic acts on the market. There’s a reason for that; they are one of the best. Morgan and Fletcher are magicians when it comes to music. We don’t know how they do it, but every time they pull something out of their sleeves that is unexpected and blows our minds.

Most recently, the Australian duo teamed up with vocalist Daniel Johns on “Open Fire,” a hybrid single that brings sounds of trap and future into one. “Open Fire” could easily be a radio hit, which is why Mad Decent had to jump on it, among other reasons. Their top shelf production quality and high-level song writing skills are rivaled by few, as you’ll understand after having a listen to this original. Every little detail is on point, and we’d expect nothing less from SLUMBERJACK. “Open Fire” is currently available on digital stores, so head to your store of choice to get the single. It’s worth every penny. Last, but certainly not least, the duo are about to embark on a North American tour. For more info, head over to their Facebook page, hyperlinked above.

[Event Review] Mad Decent Block Party – San Diego – 9/13


(PC: LED Presents & Fixation Photography)

The tradition never stops! TMN has attended Mad Decent Block Party for the second year straight here in San Diego, and we’re here to tell you how it went and what we think about it. Switching to The Park at Petco Park, the new venue provided a more refreshing and intimate setting. Despite no-shows from ATL producer Metro Boomin and up and coming rapper Travi$ Scott, MDBP has once again wowed us with a lineup filled with electrifying acts that managed to turn up the heat even more here in San Diego.

Sam Vogel a.k.a Jauz, is a newly emerging superstar who helped fuel the whole bass house movement with tracks like “Feel The Volume”. Following his amazing performance at Hard Summer, he once again won the hearts of the fans here. With an hour of non-stop bass action, the crowd went crazy the whole time. To our surprise, he brought out producer Ookay as a special guest and hypeman, which you can watch here. He also played a whole bunch of new unreleased tracks that got the crowd super excited, one of which is his collaboration with Ghastly titled “Ghosts N Sharks”.

Thomas Jack, who is the father of tropical house, took the stage soon after Jauz. It was intriguing to see the crowd transitioning to melodic house music after an adrenaline-invoking set. It gave everyone time to relax a bit but kept them vibing to the music still. And when Netsky came on, it was a whole different story. Talk about somebody who combined some good ol’ drum and bass with trap, house, hip-hop and just about everything else in a set. With so much energy and finesse, he’s definitely one of the true OGs in the game.


What’s a block party without Dillon Francis? Another powerhouse in big room music, the social media-active producer put in some of the most current bangers in his set, combined with his signature hilarious visuals, which took the crowd on a crazy ride as dusk approached.

Closing out the night was none other than Major Lazer, which is Diplo‘s side project together with Jillionaire and Walshy Fire. With so much radio exposure, many would critique Diplo for caving into mainstream music; however, just like Jack U, Major Lazer’s music speaks otherwise. It was the perfect headlining set, as the three gave every bit of their energy to hype up the crowd and took turns DJing. There was no denying that Diplo helped popularize bounce and moonbahton music and gave them the electronic change-up they needed.

With such a great channel like Mad Decent Block Party, which had 22 shows in 19 cities during this year’s tour, there’s no wonder it just keeps getting better and better each year. Diplo gave MDBP the perfect identity as the chillest and most intimate turn-up fest around, unlike the usual electronic festivals filled with rave culture. We are excited to see what else the Mad Decent crew has to bring to San Diego next year.

If you’re interested in experiencing the party for yourself, we’re giving away a pair of tickets to the Chicago leg of the tour this weekend.

NGHTMRE just doesn’t stop. He’s here with a Mad Decent original called “STREET” that Skrillex played at Ultra. If NGHTMRE was going for an epic trap anthem, he got it. What makes this even more impressive is the way the song develops from beginning to end. His superior sound design and arrangement talents are evident in this hit that has potential to be played out the rest of the year. He doesn’t hold back, and the result was something worthy of praise from the best of the best, including Bassnectar and RL Grime. This super charged single is one of NGHTMRE’s dopest tunes yet, but he’s surely got more up his sleeve. “STREET” is up for grabs for free, or if you’d like to support the release, it is purchasable on iTunes.
