Ninjaaaaas! What the fuck is going on out there? We’ll tell you what’s going on, it’s Friday. It’s time to put your work week far behind you and embrace what we’ve all been waiting for: the weekend. Long gone are the days of tired eyes, aching backs, and that one guy with horrible coffee breath. For the next 48 hours, it’s all you baby. So pour yourself a stiff cocktail, press play, throw on something nice, and hit the town. Just make sure to have yourself one hell of an evening. We’ll supply the tunes, as usual.

The Sound Of Silence (The Golden Pony Remix)
Brooklyn’s favorite Electro-Disco revivalists The Golden Pony have had quite the knack for their selections in remixing from Daft Punk to Avicii to Carousel (a track we posted a few months back) and now Simon & Garfunkel, the duo seem to pair their beats symbiotically even with such a classic original like S &G’s “The Sound of Silence”. TGP take their listeners all the way back to 1964 when records were still manufactured on wax and love was as free as that killer whale Willy, but also bring “The Sound of Silence” back to 2013 with a techno sounding deep, arpeggiated synth punching its way over the original chord progression and Paul Simon’s unmistakable vocal intonations sounding as pristine and gorgeous as the day they were recorded. The tune comes as part of a new project from The Golden Pony entitled “Golden Classics” which will see the boys adding their funky-fresh groove to classic tunes from the 60′s all the way up to the 90′s, and as always it’s being offered up as free download through, so grab it while you’re here.
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.

Young Love (feat. Koko LaRoo)
It’s not our job to read into the recent onslaught of releases from Deadmau5. You’ll never see us post the “Top 10 pictures of Deadmau5 and Kat,” but you will see us dive headfirst into his music though. Even though his tracks will get ample blog coverage, our long and loving adoration of his music can’t prevent us from jumping on the bandwagon.
With a EDM community obsessed with “drop culture” as we just now dubbed it, it’s overwhelming refreshing to hear Deadmau5 do what he does best: create rich melody driven music. In “All I Have” and “All I Had” we’re once again brought back to what we first came to love about his music. The depth in sound scape is absolutely overwhelming. They’re carefully orchestrated and mapped together, creating a listening experience that can truly take you away from whatever it is that you’re doing.
We don’t know what Mau5 is going through personally, and it’s not our spot to speculate. We’ve all been there before, and we have to imagine that it’s even more painful when the entire blogosphere is talking it up. So instead of guessing, we’ll just press play, sit back, and enjoy the tunes that he’s been dropping as of late.
We had a virtual run in with these two brothers from down under a few months back when we exclusively featured one of their #SomethingBig radio shows. We’ve been hooked ever since, and we couldn’t be more excited about their recent announcement. Personally, we’re bummed that these guys won’t be hitting up any clubs in Colorado, but we still had to share the news with you. Check out these dates and locations, and make sure to mark this on your calendar. The Stafford Brothers don’t make it up to the North America all that often, and it’s a show you will want to catch.

Chuck Norris Dub (Thomas Jack Edit)
A few weeks ago we featured an amazing little number from Australian producer Thomas Jack, “The Final Speech”, which then proceeded to embark on a viral tear including a stay at #1 on Hype Machine . On the heels of that solid release comes an edit of Men At Work’s 80′s staple “Down Under”, and it was another cleverly worked piece of soulful electronic music fit for our Ninja palate. Although this particular song has been warped and remixed countless times, the 20 year old has made it once again unique, yet irreparably familiar. TJ doesn’t skimp on the summery vibe on his plush edit, and with the recent heat around the Western States, it syncopated charmingly with our cochlear cavities. Stream the tune above.
