Listen: Moglii x Novaa – “Tonic Water” (Snocker Cot Remix)

Moglii by Sebastian Lehner

Off the back of the successful debut ‘Naboo’ EP from German musical prodigy Moglii, Majestic Casual Records presents the release of the “Tonic Water” remix from 19 year old LA producer Nick Minutaglio aka Snocker Cot.

The remix provides the perfect additions in production to complement what was already a textured, intricate soundscape on the original. Pitched vocals, lush hooks, moody synths and a carefree guitar melody carry the track to create a vibe which serves to “overcome contradictions and catch attention with unexpected sounds and ideas”. The remix adds another level to Moglii’s original and is sure to turn heads and keep listeners coming back for more.

I was very excited to remix this track because I’m a big fan of Moglii and his sound. I love the way his music sounds so organic and natural, and how he blurs the line in between synthetic and acoustic sounds. I wanted to replicate that and pay homage to it in my remix. That’s why I decided to use an acoustic guitar in order to create that natural sound. I’m very pleased with the way the remix turned out! – Snocker Cot

Moglii is the solo project of 24-year-old producer, singer and jazz pianist Simon Ebener-Holscher. The musician, based in Düsseldorf, Germany, spends his time creating unique productions of warm beats, analogue synthesizers and soulful vocal samples. His modern electronic compositions are often supplemented by acoustic instruments and an organic soundscape, with the help of field recordings of coffee machines, shopping bags or cactuses.

The debut EP Down Under from Moglii x Novaa can be found here and features the “Mother” single, which has reached over 3 million streams, and the #2 spot on Spotify’s Global Viral Charts.

Must Listen: Julietta and Emma Jensen

julietta

Julietta has a wistful vibe that is reminiscent of alterna-pop acts like BANKS, with nostalgic sensibilities like Lana Del Rey. “Beach Break” was written while she was spending time in Nicaragua. In fact, the opening sounds in this song are actual field recordings of the jungle surroundings. You don’t wanna skip over this tune — check it out below:

While you’re at it, check out Norway beauty Emma Jensen, too. Signed with Majestic Casual, she produces her own music (high fives)! Emma says, “‘Closer’ is about the feeling when you know you’re about to drift away from or lose someone, but you really want to hold on and let the person know that you’ll give it all to make things work.”

Listen: Lane 8 feat. Bipolar Sunshine – “I Got What You Need (Every Night)”

Ministry of Sound and Above & Beyond’s acclaimed melodic house label, Anjunadeep, have joined forces to release one of late summer’s hottest house anthems, Lane 8 featuring Bipolar Sunshine’s “I Got What You Need (Every Night)”. Zane Lowe gave the single its worldwide premiere on Radio 1 via a ‘Future Exclusive’, while to date; the original version of “Every Night” has hit the Beatport Deep House Top 10, and garnered approximately 500,000 plays on Soundcloud and 800,000 views on YouTube.

Lane 8 aka Daniel Goldstein is the fast-rising US house producer championed by Pete Tong (who selected him as a ‘Future Star’ on Radio 1), Zane Lowe, MistaJam, B.Traits, Aeroplane, Tensnake, Kidnap Kid, Majestic Casual and many more. Originally from San Francisco, but currently residing in Leipzig, Germany, his debut single for Anjunadeep, “Be Mine” topped the Hype Machine chart, following previous success with cult label, French Express. Amongst his growing international fanbase is Eric Prydz, who recently chose him to remix his new single,”Liberate”. Further remixes for Above & Beyond and Josh Record have helped position Goldstein as one of the most promising young producers on the planet.

Bipolar Sunshine aka Adio Marchant is the hotly-tipped Manchester singer whose music crosses hip-hop, indie, nu-soul, alt-rap, dance, psychedelia, electronic and Beatlesy pop. With 4 Hype Machine No.1s to date, he’s caught the ears of fans and critics alike including Radio 1, Sunday Times, The Guardian and beyond via the EPs “Aesthetics” (the lead track, “Rivers” was iTunes Single Of The Week) and “Drowning Butterflies”. A genuine star in the making, his extensive touring, including live shows at Glastonbury, Bestival, and beyond, plus support slots with London Grammar, Bastille and Lily Allen, have cemented his reputation yet further.
