Denyse Tontz – United States Of Anxiety (Mr. Kristopher Remix) [TMN Premiere]

’USAnxiety( Mr Kristopher remix)’

Back in late July, People premiered an original single by Denyse Tontz called “United States Of Anxiety” that really struck a chord with millennial listeners. Today, we’re happy to present to you a premiere of Mr. Kristopher‘s take on the single, which will be a part of a full remix EP that is coming soon.

Mr. Kristopher stayed true to the original’s groovy vibe, but he turned up the bassline with a bit more energy, as well as a darker tone. He pays homage to the old-school electro sound that paved the way for a lot of producers. He manages to keep things fresh, despite taking a bit more of a traditional approach to this remix. The result payed off, as it is a song that both electronic fans will enjoy, as well as fans of the original who may not be entirely into the dance music scene. Mr. Kristopher’s accessible creation is a great song that plays off the actual process of anxiety that many individuals feel. Check out the single today, as well as the exclusive free download for his remix of “Sweet Dreams” below.

[Resident Artist(s) of the Month] The Hunna

Album Hero Press Shot

As a person that easily binge watches TV shows, it is easy to get to a point where you have almost seen it all. Or at least, all that appeals your interest. Yet, the minute that you find out the release date of your favorite show’s next season, you suddenly have more purpose in life. Ok, maybe my life is a “little bit” more Netflix-driven than yours, but my point is that finding out when The Hunnaa was releasing their full-length debut, 100, gave me just enough rivaling purpose. Introduced through their lusciously euphoric rock single ‘Bonfire’ back in October 2015, capable of filling rooms with their anthemic rock sound, The UK-based four-piece grabbed our hearts and ears from the very start. Ten months, millions of Spotify streams later and praised Zane Lowe, Annie Mac and Huw Stephens, The Hunna have captured just more than an audience. They are one of the few bands today that can define their own following as a ‘movement’ and 100 further proves their case.

This brings us to why we are incredibly honored to present the next Artist(s) of the month: The Hunna, as their kicking off their debut album this week. Join us this month as we get to know Ryan (Vocals/Guitar), Dan (Lead Guitar), Jermaine (Bass) and Jack (Drums) and their quest to conquer the world (musically).

’You & Me’
’We Could Be’
’Still Got Blood’
’Be Young’
’She’s Casual’

A Lightning Round Q&A with Marian Hill [TMN Exclusive Interview]

DNP_4179

Here at The Music Ninja, we take pride in being solely focused on the musicians we love and the works they create. This mindset has allowed us to bypass the pop culture aspects that many others focus on, bringing our Ninja following the freshest faces and best yet-undiscovered acts as they appear across the web. This massively time consuming pursuit has introduced us to many a fledgling band as they try to find their ways early in their careers. Back in mid-2013, that hunt led us to a diamond in the rough.

Marian Hill, a band who rose to fame on the back of their debut song, “Whisky” is a Philly-raised, Brooklyn-based duo consisting of Jeremy Lloyd and Samantha Gongol. As early fans of their work, it has been exciting watching the band take off and become a successful name in music behind their jazzy-electronic style. While making their second appearance at Outside Lands Music Festival a few weeks ago, Jeremy & Sam were gracious enough to meet up with us while taking in St. Lucia’s performance to talk touring, inspiration, and the road to success.

[Electro House] Warez – Up In The Air

Warez
Warez
Up In The Air

Warez are on a mission. The Charlotte duo have been putting out some of the best bass music you are going to find, all while keeping fans guessing with their fresh sounds. They can tear up any genre, and they aren’t afraid to do it. Most recently they took on electro with their original “Up In The Air” that they released for free.

“Up In The Air” is, no doubt, a single for the Summer. It’s call for fans to put their hands up is something that has become synonymous with mainstage DJs, but Warez don’t water down this single like many of the hands-in-the-air DJs do. Instead, they bring some heavy basslines that call more for headbanging than getting your hands up. That’s certainly true for the second drop, that has the duo switching up the pace. We could have had this single a year ago, but do to sampling, we’ve had to wait. Now, we get it as a free download that will find itself somewhere near the top of many of our Summer playlists.
