Magnetic Magazine's FreshLIST has been sourced from the digital ether and curated into a weekly video series for your listening pleasure. With the FreshLIST, you’ll find the five latest highlights uploaded to our YouTube channel: the selection is diverse, the quality is high, and the music is certified fresh.
Tiga – Bugatti (Torren Foot Bootleg)
Now, ‘Bugatti’ is indisputably a track of the year, possibly the century (Tiga definitely believes it I bet!). Torren Foot has done something better than any of the other remixes with it though! ‘Bugatti’ with G-House twist is bold, it’s just crazy enough to work! This bootleg maintains the same fierce energy of the original, but adds layers of aggression that take it in a new bad ass direction.
P Reign feat Drake & Future – DNF (nosleep Remix)
nosleep is one of the best remixers of hip and hop and R&B tunes. Here he takes P Reign, Drake & Future on a dreamy exodus that has beautiful background elements that float the flow of the rappers on wavy clouds. Would you ever think these fine gentleman at the top of the rap game might be in a song that sounds so graceful? Magical remixing talent is exactly what nosleep has. Does he hear rap and hip hop tunes and clearly hear his own way? The imagination on this dude is awe inspiring.
Eekkoo & Casper Whirin - Shadow People
The latest darling of Mau5trap, Eeekkoo, has come together with Casper Within to make something simply electric. A song is monstrous in scale, and it’s got sinister teeth. This is the music Godzilla would probably listen to while he is chilling at the bottom of the ocean. Yet, it’s not just massive and evil, it’s extremely innovative and on point with where techno should be going - always looking to the future, subtle, strong, and complex.
Hernene - Roly Poly
Rock It Science Labs knows a thing or too about contemporary disco house. Their latest release with Hernene is a focused groover, fixed towards getting a substantive party going. This isn’t a rage your face off tune, this is a dance because you want to dance song.
Lakker – Monla (Extended)
Next up we have an extended version of the song ‘Monla’ by Lakker. Lakker is a mysterious group out of Ireland who keeps the focus on the art. Not ones to mince words or write up long bios or even do interviews for that matter it would appear. They are deft musicians with a keen sense of what makes music powerful. This extended edit sounds like a song Boards of Canada may have put out if they had started making music today.
Ardency & Nash Howe - A Way to Say
Romance and relax. All you need to do is take it easy and feel the deepness of this collaboration between Ardency and Nash Howe. Ardency caught my ear with an amazing remix of one of my favorite songs of all time, and when I scrutinized their latest EP further, I found they are no one hit wonders. Ardency is a wonderfully talented group that has a signature aesthetic that touches you. There is something distinct, something tremendously unique about their style. I can’t pinpoint it, and I really don’t want to figure out what makes them tick. I just want to let them take me away with their ethereal vibe on this special song.
Worthy – Acid Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy (Worthy’s Nut Crackin Rerub)
Season’s Booty Shakings! We’ll keep it short, we’ll keep it sweet, our beloved Worthy has whipped up something special for the holiday season. It doesn’t have to be old classics, it can be a bit of the new to provide the perfect soundtrack as the children are ripping into presents this Christmas!
Gingy & Bordello – Tremors
Beware the cool that slowly creeps down from Canada, no it is not the cold of winter we are talking about. We are talking about this cool techno by Gingy & Bordello that emanates from Toronto and is swirling the world over. Another selection off the amazing Turbo Recordings Warehouse series, and we are not afraid to scream our devotion to this relevant work of the best and brightest Turbo and the greater techno genre has to offer!
