[Electronic] Salty Springs – Cucknite

Salty Springs
Cucknite

Portland, Oregon based producer Salty Springs presents “Cucknite,” a chill house Fortnite character inspired debut release, as he set out to design music that reflects the Fortnite video game characters’ emotes.

As if playing the 1st person shooting game, and winning wasn’t enough, the Fortnite community felt the need to produce music to accompany the feeling, which Cucknite cheekily describes below:

Fornite is the first video game I’ve played since RuneScape. It’s the only game that’s as addicting as heroin. The rush of killing someone and then them watching you do a dance immediately afterwards is extremely fulfilling, and the only way I could find more fulfillment is by dancing to my own songs after a kill.

[Music Video] Harry Nathan – Rooftops

The Berklee School of Music student Harry Nathan has been making some solid moves as of late. The Australian producer and DJ dropped some hot beats at Ultra and has now come out with a music video for his single “Rooftops.” The indie-pop style of this track is phenomenal, just as the music video is.

Harry’s a creative person whose circle is full of other creatives. For this music video he partnered up with his friends Odeya Rush and Ryan Lee, both of whom worked on the Goosebumps feature film. Upon viewing the video, you wouldn’t guess this was just a group of friends making a video. It just happens to be that all involved are extremely talented prodigies. Enjoy!

[Denver Event Preview] TMN Presents: Aaron Bordas w/ Robotic Pirate Monkey – 9/21 – Larimer Lounge

TMN Presents
Aaron Bordas @ Larimer Lounge - Denver, CO

Over the past five years in the city of Denver, we’ve had the pleasure of putting on some of the most memorable and eclectic slate of electronic, indie, rock and hip-hop shows that the Mile High City has ever seen under the ‘TMN Presents’ banner. From bands and artists including the likes of Hayden James, The Knocks, Small Black, Teen Daze, Autre Ne Veut, ASTR and loads more; it was high time that we shifted our focus to the bevy of incredible local talent that Denver and Colorado as a whole have to offer. And so, it is with great anticipation that we unveil our next ‘TMN Presents’ night as we bring ascending Denver based Techno/House producer & DJ Aaron Bordas with special guests Robotic Pirate Monkey to the always welcoming and ultra raucous Larimer Lounge on Friday, September 21st.

With numerous local accolades under his banner and opening credits under some of electronic music’s most exciting names across a slew of genres, Aaron Bordas has rapidly risen from an excellent main-support act to a formidable headlining force in not just his home city, but the Western U.S. as a whole. 2017 saw the budding artist headline numerous clubs, enrapturing droves of fans in the process while pushing the boundaries of his production catalog as well with a release on Quite Right and two more in 2018 “11:16” and “Memory Lapse” in collaboration with fellow Colorado producer Dynohunter. The head of Aaron’s hypebeast is surely his excellent track curation and buzzed about shows, which have us and those who have witnessed a DJ set so excited for this show. To tune your ears in advance of our next showcase, be sure to check out Bordas’ mix series Reason and eclectically selected live sets as well.

It wouldn’t be a ‘TMN Presents’ night without at least a few of our fellow Ninjas in the building, so we’re gearing up to give away not one, but TWO pairs of tickets to Aaron Bordas’ show on September 21st, and entering is beyond simple. Just comment below (click on this post if you’re still on our front page) with the tagged friend that you’d want to take and BOOM, you’re entered.  For those who’d rather guarantee their entry, to which we HIGHLY recommend, grab your tickets from the link provided here. Until then, stream “As We Are” by Aaron Bordas above, help us spread the word, and we’ll see you all on the floor!

[Electronic] TWO LANES – Away

TWO LANES
Away

The brotherly duo TWO LANES have made their way to the Lowly Palace imprint by way of their single “Away.” The original is a follow up to their remix of “Line of Sight” by another legendary duo, ODESZA.

“Away” is a dreamy adventure that will whisk you off to a lush world created by TWO LANES. These classicaly trained creatives let musicality breath through their works, this one especially. They’ve handled future bass before, but I think they’ve taken the genre a step beyond and in a bit of a different direction here – something a lot of producers are attempting to do, but failing.

[Electronic] Alex Lustig – Wave002

Alex Lustig continues to roll ahead with his solo project with the release of the Wave002 EP. The first installment of the EP series came to us a few months ago and was followed by an A/B side release. After you check out this heavenly array, check out the other projects if you haven’t!

Wave002 comes in at three tracks in length, including a collaboration with the vocalist Akacia. The smooth singles are just what you need to whisky you away after a long, hard week. Many of us out there seek for an escape and Alex delivers a doorway out with each of these singles. As time progresses through each track you travel further and further into the serene landscape that Lustig has built. Wave goodbye to your worries and let go with this one.

[Electronic] Greatness of Saturn – 777

Greatness of Saturn
777

Some people shy away from anything that has to do with 666, but as for “777” you have nothing to worry about. In fact, quite the opposite as Greatness of Saturn‘s debut single is something you’ll rather enjoy

Despite Greatness of Saturn being a new name, STINT is someone us ninjas have been keen on for some time and he takes co-production credits on this one. The raspy, retro-inspired original is an interesting take on dance music, showing off Greatness of Saturn’s unique low-fi sound. Stay tuned for more as “777” is the first single from an upcoming self-titled EP!

The Music Ninja Presents: Mega Summer Playlist 2018

With the dog days of summer upon us, we think it’s important as ever to reflect on the past few months. For us, naturally, that reflection takes the form of our Mega Summer Playlist. These used to be a yearly tradition of ours that unfortunately fell by the wayside, but it is one that we sorely missed. We have been trying to keep the tradition alive with a much smaller taste for fans of our weekly radio show, but we’re finally ready to serve the full meal again…with a little added seasoning. Previously, we would separate the playlists by genre, but to spice things up this time we’re providing everything in one convenient package. With 385 songs and a run-time of nearly 24 hours(!), you’re certain to find at least something you like in here.

What this all means is that we’re big fans of summer at The Music Ninja and we hope you are too. There’s certainly a warmth to the season that results in some great music, but what you may not realize is how many different forms that can take. Our playlist is designed to follow the motions of going through a summer day–from the moment you open your eyes to the instant your head rests back on your pillow–and the wide spectrum of moods and emotions that accompany that journey. We hope you enjoy the ride and discover something new along the way! Listen to the preview below and make sure to follow the playlist on either Spotify or Apple Music to get the full experience.
