On September 29th Golden Vessel will be releasing the Right/Side EP. Before we get too ahead of ourselves, let’s focus in on the single “Less~More” that just got released from the forthcoming project. “Less~More” comes to us in collaboration with OKBadlands out of Brisbane.

The indie meets electronic crossover has just the type of hybrid sound you’d expect from ground-breaking Australian acts. For some reason the country is a hot bed for creative talent that trumps most of the rest of the world. Golden Vessel is staking his claim in the territory with amazing tracks and more are coming with his upcoming EP. For now, peep “Less~More” and pre-order the EP on digital stores.

Max Byrne, aka Golden Vessel, is yet another talented artists coming from the land down under. Not only does this Brisbane beatmaker have the production talent, but the creative edge that is going to separate him from the rest of the crowd.

“Shoulders” is the most recent work coming from Golden Vessel, out now on all stores thanks to Exist Recordings. The original features Elkkle and Mallrat. With all their abilities combined, “Shoulders” is an absolute treasure. The indie meets electronic style is refreshing, among a host of other positive adjectives. Hear it for yourself today and get a copy for your digital library.

[15 to End 2015] Ninja Dom’s Best of the Year

As a sweeping generalization, 2015 will go down as a year dominated by collectives. Future Classic, Hegemon, Moving Castle, Soulection, HW&W, Wedidit, Monstercat, and French Express pooled their talents together to commandeer the music scene this year. The technical aspects commonly associated with “Future” crept into the DNA of producers, becoming a topical theme across genres from the most obscure to the most mainstream.

In particular, and as one of the most recent additions to the TMN staff, it has been quite a journey both as a contributor and music fan since early April. Without the collaboration of the entire staff – the guidance of editors and advice of my fellow writers – year one as a ninja would not have been possible. Along the way I’ve covered tours, shot music festivals, and met some of my favorite artists, who have graciously exposed me to their own intricate webs of sound. That being said, below is my best effort to reduce thousands of great tracks released this calendar year down to a manageable number. Enjoy the tracks below, in order of release date, and see you all next year!

’Oceaán – Veritas (Young & Sicks Mixed Feelings)’
Although it has nearly been removed from all channels of the internet, this remix of Veritas is a fluid tune, incorporating contrasting techniques in a way that set it apart this year.

’OBESØN – Mon Amour’
This is both my favorite song ever and the answer to the hypothetical question “if you could only listen to one song for the rest of time…”

’San Holo – We Rise’
Deserving of a spot on all lists, this has been the de facto party-starter and pregame anthem since it’s release in February.

’Alison Wonderland – Run’
The title track from AW’s debut album taps into the talents of fellow producers Djemba Djemba and AWE in creating this hooky, electronic masterpiece.

’Mura Masa – When U Need Me’
For an artist focused on quality over quantity, this is Mura Masa’s greatest creation to date.

’DIVERSA – Burning House’
Burning House is the most powerful release of Diversa’s, serving as a benchmark for the current wave of Drum & Bass producers to measure up against.

’Jamie xx – The Rest is Noise’
Jamie XX has been graced with near unanimous approval of his album In Colour; The Rest is Noise incorporates his most polished elements in a lengthy rainbow-colored instrumental.

’Tory Lanez – Acting Like (Prod. by Shlohmo)’
Another up and coming artist out of the blooming Toronto hip-hop scene, Tory Lanez, enlists the help of Shlohmo in putting together this dark, rhythmic jam.

’Golden Vessel – Borrowed Time (ft. Tiana Khasi)’
Melbourne locals Golden Vessel and Tiana Khasi teamed up to create one of the most enchanting and soulful pieces of the year, bar none.

’Thundercat – ‘Them Changes”
As the most groovy track of the summer season, this was also an introduction and revival of the nostalgia-pumping funk genre, which used to dominate the charts.

’Tame Impala – The Moment’
Parker shows off his adaptability on this one; in cutting the downtrodden lyrical content against a synth-driven bridge full of cheery guitar riffs and rhythmic hand claps, the single is inextricably linked with the bridge in fellow Australian band Pond’s recent release, “Medicine Hat”.

’Moi Je – Fais Rien (PETIT BISCUIT Remix)’
Although the title literally means ‘do nothing’, it is nearly impossible to hear this remix by Petit Biscuit and not be tempted to move by the upbeat tempo.

’Khai – Do You Go Up’
This bubbly, minimalist tune is carried on the strength of its hook and the catchy vocals of its creator.

’SevnthWonder – Maria I’m Drunk (Ft. Deverano) (Travis Scott Cover)’
As the most notable track by the best up and comer out of 2015, this remix displays a vision and creativity beyond SevnthWonder’s years.

’Finding Hope – Wonder’
With roots in the ambient genre, down-tempo is the most calming style of music. The deep, pleasant reverie continues through Wonder and does not end until the close of the song.

[Future/Soul] Golden Vessel – Borrowed Time Feat. Tiana Khasi

Golden Vessel
Borrowed Time Feat. Tiana Khasi

Earlier this week we were once again graced with a surprising new artist from down under. Australia’s own Golden Vessel teamed up with fellow Brisbane resident Tiana Khasi to create the emotional new track, “Borrowed Time”. Golden Vessel, at age 17, has shown promise beyond his years as a producer with remix productions of popular songs by Odesza and Panama.

As a downtempo/future/R&B production, Golden Vessel’s newest track perfectly blends previous works with the enchanting sounds of Tiana Khasi. In fact,the soulful vocals on this production vaguely recall another artist who saw a meteoric rise to success recently, Sinead Harnett. With such a powerful song being released by these two young up and comers, it won’t be long before we’ll be seeing their names everywhere.

Check out other works by Tiana Khasi here, or catch some feelings and download Borrowed Time here.
