[Electronic] Kendl – For Her

Kendl
For Her

To tease fans for his upcoming EP, Colours, Kendl went ahead and released “For Her” off the project early. Even if nobody else is – which is 100% not the case – all of us ninjas are ready for the EP as this single has us at the edge of our seats with our ears perked up.

“For Her” is an intimate house record that’s almost too chill to even be labeled as anything but electronic. Everything about it is subtle, but in those subtleties lies a remarkable beauty that is easy to connect to. It’s one of those songs that you simply lose yourself in. It’s not until the end of the record that the composition gets a bit more colorful and complex. “For Her” is not something you’re going to want to miss a second of. If you’re digging it like us, get a copy from iTunes today.

The Los Angeles producer partnered up with Quality Goods Records for the EP, but Music Ninja for the premiere. Get ready, this one is steamin’ right out of the oven.

“Hollow” is beyond fantastic. It comes out of left-field with enough swagger to melt the entire bass scene in an instant. With so many producers trying to be like other producers, it’s extremely refreshing to hear someone doing something different – and even a bit weird in the best way possible. sumthin sumthin has a catalog that is impressive, yet small, but he’s growing it in a big way with this EP and specifically with “Hollow.” Enjoy the single early, as the full EP isn’t out until the 28th; however you can get your copy through digital services.

[Electronic] Astrocolor – Push Too Hard (feat. Fox Glove)

Astrocolor
Push Too Hard (feat. Fox Glove)

The best music often comes with an elusive sound. A new release by the Canadian band Astrocolor bends rock, soul, electronic and so many other genres into something wonderful. An emotional vocal performance from Fox Glove brings an Erykah Badu influence while the instrumental jams and analogue synth have elements of Tycho or Boards of Canada.  They’re still relatively underground and building up their online presence but Astrocolor’s fresh modern sound points to big things down the line. “Push Too Hard”  is the lead single on a new 7-track album. It’s a solid listen from start to finish so be sure to head over and check out the full album if you like it.

[Electronic] The Federal Empire – The American Dream (Lux Pacific Remix)

The Federal Empire
The American Dream (Lux Pacific Remix)

Every once in a while a song comes along that captivates you instantly and you know it’s going to be a song you come back to time and time again. Lux Pacific did that for us, with his remix of “The American Dream” for The Federal Empire. The Californian’s flip is a masterpiece from start to finish.

Lux Pacific is a new name to the game, as witness by his Soundcloud only having two songs, including “The American Dream” remix. His smooth sound rests itself in between a handful of genres, making it a song that anybody can enjoy – and enjoy it they shall. Of course, Lux was working with great stems from the LA duo, but he was able to take things up a few levels with his work on the project. Lux has us very excited for the future with this one. We’ll be keeping a close eye on him and you should too.

[Electronic] Manic Focus – Minds Rising LP

Manic Focus has continuously kept in his own lane with his own sound. The amazing thing about him is that his style translates across genre lines, which is undoubtedly evident from his past albums, as well as his newest in Minds Rising. Independently released, this major project is yet another example of why MF is one of the best in the game, with a certain confidence – not cockiness – that most producers lack.

Minds Rising runs the length of twelve singles, with a lengthy list of collaborators including Exmag, Psymbionic, Russ Liquid, ProbCause and many more. As with most of Manic’s tracks, we get whisked away on a chill adventure through several styles, including a few hip-hop records that are just about as dope as you can get. With other tracks like “Pushing” and “Rage Fits” Manic Focus hones in one some groovy basslines and guitar riffs that seduce the soul. Manic always manages to connect with people on a deep level with his music, which is one of the many reasons why he’s been able to do so well on his own.

Through and through this album is incredible. Going into this LP we didn’t expect we’d have to skip any songs and that held true. Some of our favorite musical works have come from Manic Focus and there may just be a few that get added to the list from Minds Rising. Check it out for yourself today and make sure to get a copy.

[Multi-Genre] KJ Sawka – Unity Of Purpose EP

Pendulum and Destroid’s drum-loving basshead KJ Sawka has released quite the EP through Impossible Records. Complete with five singles, Unity Of Purpose is everything a lover of low frequencies is looking for. Some dub, some DnB and even a little bit of something extra on top.

KJ starts things off with a huge prelude that is nothing short of epic. From there we dive into some heavy bass in “Face Crack” which will do just that if you’re not too careful. If that didn’t get you hyped for some reason, then the drum & bass record “Running Away” will get you fired up. What may be our favorite single comes next in “The Time Has Come” although it’s hard to really choose a #1. Lastly, KJ returns with Emilia Sosa for “Monster,” the most unique song out of the non-prelude bunch. Get your copy of the EP through iTunes today, or head over to KJ’s Soundcloud for the free batch.

’KJ Sawka – Prelude feat. Jason Camiolo – Impossible Records’
’KJ Sawka – Face Crack – Impossible Records’
’KJ Sawka – Running Away feat. Emilia Sosa – Impossible Records’
’KJ Sawka – The Time Has Come’
