So this doesn’t happen everyday. A mysterious Demur has released pretty interesting artwork we assume will be paired with lots of music soon. So far, a few pieces of artwork have surfaced from this person; shitting on six figure DJs and their pre-recorded lifestyle and antics. Today, Demur released his first song. A tune that also embraces rebellion and changing the status quo. No one knows who he is, but fans comment that DeadMau5 may be behind it, nothing is confirmed.demur-hardwell-1024x768

Progressive House, Videos | The Chainsmokers ft. SirenXX – Kanye (Video)

Posted by on September 8, 2014

Like Kanye the person, The Chainsmokers are used to playing shortened festival sets (E Zoo last Sunday). The similarities end there. The Chainsmokers rendition of Kanye has become a hit, not on the accidental and obnoxious level of #SELFIE, but impressive considering it is just their second original to hit the interwebz. Peep the video and feel like Kanye.

Two Fridays ago in New York it monsooned. Not your average everyday, downpour with the occasional flash of lightning, but a serious cloth soaking, 100% humidity state of affairs that created deceptive “puddles” that would envelop your entire lower leg up to your knee. Despite this and a 4 hour flight delay because of it, The Bixel Boys got to Webster Hall to play alongside the big man himself (he is actually a rather tall and imposing figure), Tchami.

So me hoarse from yelling over the music and a busted voice from a week of tough allergies and a cold, managed to get out some ridiculous questions to the guys and they gave me some great answers with Tchami “Untrue” blaring in the background.

Electro-House | Live City – Slingshot

Posted by on March 31, 2014

Live City - Slingshot

Live City have been on tear lately and it culimates in the release of “Slingshot” via Tommie Sunshine’s Brooklyn Fire Recordings. Their relationship with Tommie goes well beyond a few signed records, they have done a ton of tracks together and Tommie has been a sensei to them. This acid influenced fireball has been supported by some bug names like Marcus Schossow, Sander van Doorn and Benny Benassi all supporting in person. Grab this tune and head out to see them at Slake on the 18th if you are in NYC.

Chill, Dubstep | James Egbert – Exit Wounds (Murtagh Remix)

First off, I would just like to apologize for the scarcity of my posts. A few weeks ago I gained access to a Brazzers account and my life has been in shambles ever since. Not only that, but a few days ago I accidentally checked out the new guy at my work. He had long hair and was wearing a lululemon sweater so there was really nothing I could do there. It was crazy. Also, as if that wasn’t enough, my mom bought me candy cane scented hand soap but it doesn’t really smell like candy canes. It smells like how I imagine a candy cane would smell like after it had been sitting on the street for a few weeks and then thrown at my face by a smelly person.

 

In addition to wondering why Taylor Swift is always kissing a different guy in her music videos and how I wish I was one of them, there has been one other thing on my mind for the past few days and that has been this song. It is not often a song opens with 2 minutes of atmospheric piano and slowly building strings before switching gears entirely and becoming a chillstep track but that is what Murtagh did with his remix of James Egbert’s “Exit Wounds”. While I do think the intro could have used maybe an extra synth or two to liven it up a bit, it is still incredibly cinematic and well done. The uniqueness of it and the fact that it’s free makes this a track worth checking out.

Hip-Hop, Rap | Isaiah Rashad – Ronnie Drake (ft. SZA) [Video]

Posted by on November 24, 2013

The TDE label mates, Isaiah Rashad and SZA teamed up a few weeks back to form the soft-spoken and tender “Ronnie Blake”. The power-duo has recently returned to the scene with their music video accompaniment. The video for “Ronnie Drake” is nothing incredibly detailed or cinematic, however, it does show a side that holds true to who Isaiah Rashad is as a person and as an artist.

I’ve had this record on repeat for days now, and I’m happy to be able to share it with you all. Enjoy this rare hip-hop flavoring on FNT and stay tuned for Rashad’s upcoming mixtape Cilivia.

Exclusive | Lorde – Royals (Wild Boyz! Remix)

Posted by on September 4, 2013

If you could be any type of person out there in the world today, I think you’d most want to be one of Lorde’s friends as described in her song, “Royals.” Why is that? Well, if you haven’t listened to the original song enough times to make you lose your mind (which you should, because it’s truly stunning), then you might have missed the part where Lorde turns the spotlight to the average, relatively tame, yet still considerably happy teenager in contrast to, oh you know, everyone else out there blowin’ money fast. And I was so excited to hear this remix from the up and coming producers, Wild Boyz!, because it relays that same message. These boyz draw you in right from the start and as the track escalades, nuances of 80’s style synths take you away. Comparable to a modern-day Breakfast Club theme, fit for our electronic age, if you will.

Download. Press play. Live that fantasy.
