Jakwob
Fade (Kicks N Lick Remix)

Our favorite bass heavy duo, Andy Joplin and Jerrod Jordan (AKA Kicks n Licks) are back with another smooth, melodic remix. This time around, these two beatsmiths took on the stunning, drum-centric tune from Jakwob, which features fluttering vocals from Maiday.

Once again we’re shown their ability to craft gorgeous melodies that fit perfectly with the vocals. Combining a slow, build featuring intense, melodic synths with some heavy bass drops and electro style grit, “Fade” is given a whole new soundscape. While it is a departure from the original pop tune, the lyrics hold just enough to bridge the gap.

These two have quite a few shows coming up, so make sure you head to their facebook to see if they’re coming to your tow.

NEW FEATURE: PLAYABLE ARTIST UNIT

Call-to-action
Hey Ninjas! We are growing really tired of depending on advertising networks with intrusive pop up ads and auto playing music.

It has been a long dream of The Music Ninja to bring you a site without cluttering advertisement. However, this has been a constant challenge and as we continue to grow, we face expensive roadblocks that take away from our overall core values.

Today we are very proud to finally have come with a solution that will benefit artists as well as bring extra revenue to the site in a much more interactive way.

Introducing our in-house PLAYABLE ARTIST WIDGET.

We have built a tool that will let artists promote themselves, their music and even upcoming tour dates. The sponsored unit will live in our sidebar, clearly labeled and in the least intrusive way possible. ANYONE CAN SIGN UP, whether you are a small bedroom producer or a label backed DJ.

Our prices will soon change, and perhaps even become private as we try to find the right balance, but with SXSW going on, we just wanted to launch it and build from the feedback we get. Soon, if it provides successful, we can eliminate all other ads on the site and start to enjoy a cleaner interface (something we have wanted from the very beginning).

If you are an artist that would like to get more exposure, sign up right now and let us help you.

For information on adding FLYERS or Advertising on our standard displays, contact us at ads@themusicninja.com

Feature list:

- Automated but SUPPORTED ( We will provide any type of support you need getting you starting as well as while the campaign runs)
- Soundcloud API Support (You will be able to track all your plays just as if we posted the embed on the site).
- Live tool (Our live tool lets you preview the widget before you submit the campaign, if you need any additional changes, we will gladly help you at ads@themusicninja.com)
- Concert Dates with Links (We let you link anywhere you want your fans to buy your tickets)
- Ninja Look (We tried to make it as part as the site as possible for higher interactivity)

This of course does not change any other aspect of the site. All the rest of the blog posts and tracks are hand picked by our team of ninjas that believe integrity can only be achieved with providing quality tracks every day.

As always thank you for your time! We are excited for what else we can improve 2014.

[NEW] Big Boi – King Sh!t (feat. T.I., Ludacris, Kito & Reija Lee)

King Sh!t (feat. T.I. & Ludacris & Kito & Reija Lee)

Mashups have never really been my thing, but Big Boi‘s “Mashup Mondays” series has proven to be nothing short of brilliant. Breathing new life into an album that was already impressive on its own, each new remix has been just as exceptional as the last. This latest effort is no different, fusing the trap stylings of “In The A” with the buzzing electronic vibes of  Kito & Reija Lee‘s “Run For Cover.” While that might sound like a recipe for disaster to some, all three emcees seem to fit in rather naturally over the bass heavy instrumental, with Reija Lee’s sweet, fleeting vocals serving as the perfect foil to the gruff and boastful lyrical content.

If there were ever any doubts about Big Boi’s diverse and eclectic taste in music, they should be put to rest by now, as he’s proven to have a perfect ear for these kinds of blends by now. Grab a free download of the track above, and keep your ears prepared, because we still have three more weeks to go.

[Chill/Funk-Step] MOSIS – You&Me + Two Fresh Remix

mosis

There certainly hasn’t been any shortage of quality music emanating out of Denver as of late and we can chalk up another two polished electronic compositions to that consistent stream of superfluity. Savvy beatsmith MOSIS was the latest artist to catch our eye from the Western U.S.’ electronic landscape (or ears for that matter), especially behind his latest sonic architectural achievement “You&Me”, which was self-released just last week. Exploiting elements from house and garage, hip-hop, and all things ending in “step”, “You&Me” strikes a chord amongst every side of this writer’s electronic listening scale in the most beautiful of ways. That same gift of fusion has simultaneously been the catalyst behind a diverse production index and live shows supporting artists as polar as Disclosure, Lapalux, option4, Tourist, Daedelus,  Nosaj Thing and a host of more influential musicians within the dance panorama. If any rising artist deserves a bit of crate-digging from their new fans right this second, we’ll gladly point you the way of MOSIS.

Not ones to sell ourselves short here at TMN, we’re also excited to be dropping the official remix from yet another monster Denver group: Two Fresh. The low-end leaning twins usher “You&Me” in another stimulating direction entirely. Whereas MOSIS’ original lends itself to blissful spaced-out dancefloor or listening vibes, Two Fresh’s revision gets us all hot and bothered; rather inducing the need to grind and twerk to their gluey, wonked out bass line. Both tracks more than have us stoked today, and you can bet our gaze has been fixated towards the “thick” mountain air over there for more tunes in the near future. Check out both tracks below, and take home a free digital copy of MOSIS’ original track here.

[Get Crunk] Clayton’s Friday Party Playlist (Vol 92)

cfpp

Oh, shit. Ninjas, we’re about ready for summertime. Are you? It feels like we’ve been dwelling on these winter months for days on end, and we’re just about sick and tired of it. While we have no control over the weather, we do have control over what we do on the weekends. While snow may be piled up around your driveway, we can easily turn up the tempature inside with some dancy ass tracks.

So, crack open an adult beverage and get going. The only way to get those warm-weather feels is to dance your ass off.

You lace up your shoes, and we’ll provide the tunes.
