Oh shit, Ninjas! It’s time for another Music Ninja party in Denver. This time around we’ve teamed up with local music video magicians Blurred Pictures to throw a day party. You read that right. It’s about time we have a legit day party to kick off summer with.
May 19th we’re invading Norad Dance Bar for Sunday Therapy. We have a stellar day planned out with music and drink specials. Local pickle purveyors, The Real Dill, are providing a custom bloody mary bar with their Habanero Horseradish dills and their bloody mary mix. Alongside of that will be the Drink Dice girls handing out free Drink Dice. If you’re not familiar with this product, you will be after this post. Drink Dice is a Denver based company that makes alcoholic otter pops. Yeah, that exists, and it’s awesome.
Aside from specialties of the alcoholic variety, you can also expect some amazing beats. We have an array of local DJs leading up to our headliner. Arther Schmidt aka BasicPerspective (Anjunabeats, Armada) is up first, new comer Pawnee will follow, then Electro Bliss. Jontron (Black Hole) will jump on next to lead into one of our favorite DJ/Producers, PatrickReza. Patrick is making the voyage from LA to grace Norad’s decks. Just a side note, this is Patrick’s first show in Denver!
Tickets will be $5 for girls, $8 for guys. It is a summer themed party, so summer attire is welcome. So throw on your board shorts or your bikini top and head down. It’s going to be one hell of a party. And sorry kiddos, this event is 21+.

I love when our Resident Artist for the month sends me an email saying: Hey, I’ve got a new song I want you guys to preview. That is one thing we will never say no to and, he is giving is as a free download to all of his fans.
PatrickReza is our highly skilled artist this month and my ears got to hear his song first and I have got to say, highly impressive. The song, “Vitals”, reminds me of just that. I picture a person lying on the floor and another person hovering over them, checking to see if their vital signs are working properly. Are they breathing? Is their heart beating? The song begins with a slow piano melody, intriguing us listeners to check our own vitals. Then at :55, Reza puts in his first drop. No it is not the typical huge drop but this is something I admire with Reza, he picks the right beats, electronic sounds and drops with each of his pieces. He knows what is enough and what would overwhelm the song and we love that he is dipping into making PR original works. The song continues with some electronic bliss and carries until the end where the piano fades away leaving us listeners with just our breathing and our hearts beating.

Let’s start off first by apologizing. Last week we had some technical difficulties, and unfortunately couldn’t provide you with a banging party playlist to carry you through your weekend’s festivities. We’re sorry. As you’ve seen in the past, we like to beef up a party playlist the week after we missed one. With that in mind, we have for you a larger than usual selection of rage inducing tracks. So lace up your drinking shoes (which should also be your dancing shoes), grab a pint of Fireball and get after it! And, no. Fireball is not an official sponsor of CFPP. We just happen to enjoy it.

Ahhhhh spring, loving on all that sunshine and warm weather. Or, for those of us who live in Colorado, cursing at the snow that decided to come at the beginning of our week. Regardless, snow or no snow, May has come and with it a new Resident Artist for the lovely spring month. Before I introduce him though, I want to tell a “first time I heard about this artist” story. My boss at TMN told me how he wanted to put this certain young artist on the Resident line-up this year and proceeded to tell me how he went out to California earlier last year and had written on his Facebook page that he was going to go to Disneyland by himself the next day. This artist hit up my boss, having never met him except through working together for website material, and said he would love to go with him. The next day, these two went to the happiest place on earth together. I laughed at my boss’s story, it is not every day you have an artist take time out of their busy schedule to hang at Disneyland for the afternoon.
He is not even twenty-one yet, but PatrickReza has exploded onto the electric music scene over the past two years. This Los Angeles native is renowned for his heart palpitating remixes of artists such as Kimbra, the Veronicas and Moby. All of his remixes have dominated the Hype Machine Popular Chart’s Top 5 spots and his undeniable talent for changing up others works is getting him largely noticed by some big names in the music world.
Reza recently released his first ever collaboration with one of the biggest bass killers in the industry, Bassnectar. Reza has shared the stage with 12th Planet, Crizzly, Lil Jon and a slew of other artists.
We are so excited to host Reza this month on the site and are ecstatic to show his followers and TMN fans just how much BANG this young artist carries in his music.

TYR is no stranger to the task of remixing one of the greats, Moby. He’s already remixed “Honey”, “Flower”, and gained support from Moby on both. This time TYR tackles one of the most iconic tracks in Moby’s arsenal, “Natural Blues”. The approach on this remix is perfect because he enhances all the right parts of the original while still maintaing the natural flow of the song. Put it on repeat and enjoy, cheers.
Make sure if you’re in the Colorado area to check out TYR and Anvil Smith on June 8th at Summit Music Hall.

Being a Top 25 Club from DJ Mag comes at no surprise as Beta Nightclub has been featuring an amazing array of talent this summer, and this weekend is once again no exception.
Being regulars at Beta, we figured we should share their line up with you, in hopes that you’ll come down and rage with us. Also, just like last time, we have arranged for something special.

The Music Ninja Spring Mix 2013
Zeds Dead's Spring Mix
As the snow is finally melting (or if you live in Colorado, still randomly dropping on a Wednesday afternoon) and the flowers are a blooming, nothing says spring is here quite like a good mix from one of TMN’s favorite bass duos. Zeds Dead recently released their Spring Mix with over 35 heart-pounding songs sure to please any ZD fans. The mix combines fist pumping electronic with down and dirty dubstep mixed in with some fabulous funk and rich vocals. The transitions are quick and clean letting the listeners know it is on to the next awesome jam. Over an hour of some amazing songs by the two ZD mastermind boys themselves, is there any other way to ring in spring? Pull out the bbq and turn this mix up, it’s one for the sunny days and even the still snowy days. Cheers to spring.
