There’s never a shortage of shows in Denver. Between Beta Nightclub, Red Rocks, and the dozens of other top-notch live music venues across the front range, we’re seemingly scurrying out to shows every other night of the week. Or, at least, we know we are.
One of the shows we’ve had on our radar for quite sometime happens to be taking place at the First Bank Center in Broomfield on May 24th. If you haven’t guessed who it is by now, we’ll just lay it out there for you.

France’s own Douchka dropped an emotional single on March 31st called “Call You Mine” with Canadian singer Lia. Released through Nowadays Records, this single of love and longing is one that may just bring a tear to your eyes. It shares point of view that a lot of us have found ourselves in sometime in the past, or even now. Let the feels rain.
“Call You Mine” sounds like it’s going to be a poppy, upbeat song about a love story. Instead, it flips things with a tone that’s much less A-okay, but the song itself is A+ dope. Douchka perfectly embodies the emotion that the lyrics convey. Lia’s performance on this song oozes with raw feelings that, if the instrumental didn’t do it already, will put you over the edge. Catch a copy of this single on digital stores or add it to your Spotify playlist. Whatever you choose to do, enjoy.
Every time I turn around another dope artist is popping their head out of Australia. Wilsonn is the most recent artist welcomed to the dojo, alongside his single “Thankful.” Fans of soul will be head over heals for this creator whose touching sound is more than a simple listening experience.
“Thankful” really makes you feel just that, thankful. It’s an intimate single with powerful lyrics and soundscapes that provide a figurative hug of warmth that you can’t resist. Wilsonn’s vocal is one that will stay in our hearts and minds for quite a long time to come. Although it’s Summer and the “jams” are being brought out like there’s no tomorrow, it’s nice to hear something soothing like this one. Take some time, appreciate “Thankful” and do the same for those things you hold dear around you.
At The Music Ninja, we can guarantee our listeners that we provide the best and freshest music in all genres. Whether you’re looking to vibe with some indie, bump to hip hop, sing in the shower to a new pop song, or party hard to dance music, we have your back.
In this case, we’re providing you with a tune to rage to. Why? Because it’s Thursday and we’re ready to bust out our best moves on the dance floor. With that said, we want to introduce you to Cazztek and Tony Romeras‘ latest creation, “Make You Drop.” The track title says it all as this one will assuredly make you drop just as hard, if not more, than it’s speaker-blowing bass. Take a listen; you have our word that you won’t have to look any further for your Thursday night anthem.
The mystique surrounding the Portugeues producer Asmow is no gimmick and doesn’t play into the fad of enigma. Instead, the mystery is there to allow for the focus from fans to be directly on what’s important: the music.
Most recently the music is the single “Don’t Know How” featuring the vocalist Aviella, which was released through the Manifesto imprint. Given the producer’s background as a multi-instrumentalist this single is heavily influenced by natural, acoustic sounds with even the synthetic ones having an organic edge to them. “Don’t Know How” is a beautiful single that sets itself right in between several styles of electronic music, giving us something that is extremely accessible, even if you don’t call yourself a lover of anything that can be construed as “EDM.” Love the song like we do? You’re in luck, it’s been released as a free download.
The Full Circle EP from OddKidOut is more than a simple collection of six singles. It’s a declaration, a beacon of light coming straight from Philly, the birthplace of Neo-soul; a place that hasn’t paid enough attention lately to it’s musical child. OddKidOut’s goal with this project was to push the neo-soul sound to new heights from his and the genre’s home.
Full Circle is a smooth soiree of sounds that move fluidly between each other. Although OddKidOut and producer 1403 were aiming at neo-soul, they don’t exclusively stay within the genre, bringing different moods and textures to the table with each song. Favorites that we’ve been playing out in the dojo are “Angel Dust” and “Wonderfull” but “30,000 Feet” and “Blush” are quite seductive as well. Like what you are hearing?

“Our mindset on the EP was to create music that was true to us. We didn’t want to create something that everyone has already heard before. Drawing on inspirations from space, the sea, and many more, we were able to effectively create a project that had influences from a plethora of concepts.”
Klahr. Klahr. Klahr. Klahr. Klahr. Klahr. Klahr. Remember the name. If you already know it, you know how talented the producer is. If you don’t know the name, then you’re about to find out just how talented he is thanks to the newly released Dreaming Wild EP.
Released on Axwell’s Axtone, Dreaming Wild is a stunning collection of four singles. When an extended project like this, one that takes the listener on a journey usually pans out better for both parties. That’s the case with this wonderful EP. Each song is different, each one fresh to the others, making the full EP experience highly enjoyable. He touches on future bass, electro and more, with our favorite being the house hit “Koto.” They’re all fire, but this one is especially hot. Dreaming Wild is currently available through digital retailers. Trust us, get a copy.
