[Resident Artist of the Month of January] Datsik

unnamed

If there were such a thing as an Olympic event for Electronic Dance Music where each country selected their most talented representative every four years, Datsik would already be one of Canada’s sophomoric leaders. The promising young producer that started under a moniker with origins derived from his old Xbox Live gamertag, rapidly become his own establishment just months after his first release in 2009. And “rapidly” could not be more of an understatement. Soon after teaming with Excision the spring of the following year, Datsik was already joining forces with Bassnectar in the fall to deliver the eclectic track “Yes” (And till this day we still have the email from Lorin’s team that blessed us with a preview before release.)

But who really wants to talk about music from 5 years ago? Fast-forward to just a few months back and Datsik is still infusing a dark and mechanical aggression to his music while heavily paying tribute to distinguishable components of both old-school and modern swagger-forward hip/hop. The years of 2013-2014 came with ubiquities hits like: “Hold it Down”, “Hollow Point” (in collaboration with Getter) and the haunting basslines of “Scum”. Robust and coherent collections outlining his musical maturity: Cold Blooded EP with the official single “Vindicate” paving the way, the sequel release Let It Burn LP (September 2013) and finally we arrive at his latest endeavor, Down 4 My Ninjas EP. All the while signing a wide variety of dubstep/ bass producers under his very own successful record label Firepower Records.

Needless to say, most of us at The Music Ninja have had a front row seat of Troy Beetles’ music journey and today we cannot be more excited to present to you The Music Ninja’s Resident Artist of the Month of January.

But that is not all we are doing. Datsik has called upon the ninja brotherhood announcing, The Ninja Nation Tour, a comprehensive and lethal electronic adventure across The United States and Canada, is set to kick off January 22nd and carry all the way through April 9th. Be sure to come back here regularly for tour information, exclusive giveaways, interviews, and fresh new music.

[DENVER] DECADENCE 2014 PREVIEW

Screen Shot 2014-12-27 at 10.09.20 PM

Denver is growing at an exponential rate. Not just with the ever expansion in the field of tech and startups, or the amount of new restaurants and international cuisines that are calling this city their home, but more importantly its become a breeding ground for all things dance music. Granted, the Mile High City has had this very reputation for decades now, but it becomes even more apparent when the reply from electronic lovers when asked what they will be doing for New Years Eve, is in fact, “DECADENCE.”

Celebrating their 4th annual dance party (having expanding to two days last year and continuing to do so for 2014), Global Dance is turning it up to eleven, in cooperation with AEG and Live Nation to make the welcoming of 2015 the most promising. Think we are hyping this up too much? How does back to back sets from Paper Diamonds, Ecotek, Claude Vonstroke, W & W, Disclosure and Bassnectar among others sound? and in Decadence fashion that is just considered a tease as for the following day you can expect Felix Cartel, Grazmatik, Madeon, Flux Pavilion, Deorro and Big Gigantic to finish it all off.

Pure, sweet and devastating electronic destruction is always what to be expected when Global Dance is involved. The Music Ninja will be there for both days at the Colorado Convention Center and you can follow us through live updates on twitter #decadenceninjas. Without further ado, here is our 2014 end of the year Decadence Preview Playlist.

Kayzo – Fired Up (Feat. Nina Sung) [TMN PREMIERE]

Kayzo
Fired Up (feat. Nina Sung)

Well ninjas, if you’re familiar with Kayzo and love his eclecticism within bass music, then you’re in for something truly beautiful and totally in your face today. After his last DnB remix of Alesso and Tove Lo’s “Heroes”, we were keen to see what this unique producer had up his sleeves with his newest original, “Fired Up” featuring the SENSATIONAL vocals from Nina Sung. Now, prepare yourself because this one might just blow your socks, underwear, and face off. From the very beginning, Kayzo introduces us with tantalizing bass elements that progress into melodic builds and epic breakdowns full of grimy, piercing, intense sensations. We had to listen to this a few times through because it was full of so many conflicting patterns and such enticing vocals that we had to go take a shower and wash off these dirty frequencies that permeated every layer of skin on our body. Pre-Order “Fire Up (feat. Nina Sung) today and stay tuned for what Kayzo and Firepower Records have in store for us.
