Over the past couple of years, Spotify has cemented themselves as the premiere place for music streaming. We strive to be one of the premiere places on the web, but we felt it was time to branch out a bit. So, we went ahead and put together The Music Ninja Spotify account.
Don’t worry, we’re not going anywhere. You can still catch what we have to share on the website, however the dojo has grown and we want to offer you even more music. We’ve already created thirteen playlists for you to enjoy, with music ranging from future bass, to dubstep, to pop, trap, rock and even moombahton. We’ll continuously be updating each playlist, as well as creating more. Some of our current playlists include Back That Bass Up, House, Sweet House and Pretty Poppin’.
We want to thank you all for your continued support of the ninjas. We wouldn’t still be sharing music if there was nobody to share it with! In 2017, we’re looking to do some big things for you all. Stay tuned and make sure to follow the Spotify account if you are a user! Want a taste of what we’ve got going? Check out our Dive Deep playlist below, complete with our favorite deep house records.
Ray Volpe just doesn’t let up. He never has in all the time that I have known him over the years. Although he is still young, he has matured into one of the most impressive dubstep producers you can find. He’s making moves, but he’s always down to give back to his fans, which he has done with the freely downloadable “Bermuda” single.
“Bermuda” is easily one of his top tunes. His dynamic sound design plagues the production and his song-writing continues to improve. It’s always been good, but he blows our mind time and time again. A lot of dubstep can be solely focused on the sounds, but Ray always keeps it musical, doing his best at both and succeeding without a hitch. 2017 will be a massive year for him and we can’t wait to hear what else he has in store. Stream, download and enjoy.

If you don’t know BROHUG, you’ve been missing out. These cats have been taking over house music like few others in the game right now and they are doing it all with their own sound. Today they released their Giggle Juice EP through Dim Mak, complete with two party-popping singles.
BROHUG is high on our 2017 list. We knew they would kick off the year strong, but we had no idea things would be just this good. For starters “Giggle Juice” has enough bass-driven attitude to erupt a full stadium of people. It may not be the hardest electro tune you’ve ever heard, but it certainly has enough swagger to rival any song you want to compare it to. The act’s electro-influenced bass meets deep style is iconic and few, if any, are really bringing these sounds together organically. They keep that sound going with “Droppers” which is a bit more on the catchy side. It may be our favorite, but it is extremely hard to choose when both songs are so good. Listen and decide for yourself and grab a copy of the EP on iTunes.
Sam F x Yntendo
All We Got ft. Lizzy Land
When we first heard that Sam F and Yntendo were coming together for a single, we were beyond stoked. Then, Lizzy Land hopped on board and Dim Mak signed the tune. Everything came together for what can only be described as a smash hit. Today, it’s out in full for fans to enjoy.
“All We Got” is going to be a song we come back to until the end of the year. It’s extremely catchy, from the grooving bassline to Lizzy’s extraordinary performance. If she doesn’t get picked up by more producers for collaborations, we’ll be surprised. Together, all the acts worked in tandem bringing their A game. There isn’t one single note in this song that is lacking. From beginning to end, your ears will be satisfied to a high degree. As if things couldn’t get any better, “All We Got” has been released as a free download. Don’t sleep on it.
There are a ton of producers who are all talk about having no limits when it comes to genres. Most of that is just talk, as those same producers pretty much keep within arms reach of a certain sound. Bad Royale actually lives it. They’ve already proven what they could do with the harder styles of dance music time and time again, but now they flip the switch to bring something entirely new.
Their new EP, We’re All We Need, dropped today in partnership with Anjunabeats and Mad Decent. You’re probably wondering how the hell those two fit together, but it will all make sense after you listen to the three singles that make up the project. As it has been in the past, Bad Royale enlist collaborators including Ruby Chase, Kim Nain and Flipo.
“Blue Sky Action” introduces us to the new sonic territory, where Bad Royale slow things down for an extremely ethereal, vibe-ridden record. It’s not what we may be used to, but it’s just as dope as what we are used to. Next comes the title track, a more upbeat, poppy tune that is absolutely perfect for radio stations all across the globe. “Fly To New York” is more along the lines of what we expect from Bad Royale, but it still has its own fresh flash and flare. We’re All We Need is a must have, plain and simple. Grab your copy today.

Shiny Wet Machine
Shiny Wet Machine already caught our ears with their debut single “Stun Gun” and now they have returned with more. Their sophomore single “Hospitals” just hit the web through Sizzy Rocket’s imprint Diet Punk.
With “Hospitals” the group tones down the energy and attitude a bit, but they still hold true to the values that brought these artists together. There’s still some sass, but it’s not as outwardly provocative. Sizzy’s performance is as incredible as always and her lyrics are captivating. The thing I really love about this song and the project at large is they are able to play both sides of the line between the professional sound and the intimate, local rock vibe. Shiny Wet Machine is what every band you hear playing at backyard shows wants to be, but doesn’t come close. No offense, just listen to “Hospitals” for yourself and see. While you’re at it, grab a copy on iTunes.
