T.I. & Young Thug
About Da $ (Kaytra Remix)

Young Thug has had an absolutely ridiculous year rising from obscurity to one of the most talked about and controversial artists in hip-hop. Thug tends to be a polarizing figure, but it’s hard to deny the addicting nature of his music. Regardless, the Atlanta emcee’s wild, melodic flows lend themselves perfectly to electronic remixes. Canadian producer Kaytranda, who has had a spectacular year himself, is the latest to take on a Thugger hit with spectacular results. Choosing one of Thug’s catchiest tunes, the T.I.-featuring “About Da Money,” Kaytra minimizes the instrumentation of the original replacing it with a jazzy bounce and keeping the vocals in tact. Perhaps the most compelling part of this re-work comes around the 3:30 mark when it goes full instrumental introducing energetic percussion that creates a supreme groove. Peep this one above–we’re excited to hear what 2015 has in store for both of these rising stars.

[Electronic // R&B] Marian Hill – Lips

Lips
Marian Hill
Lips

Lips.
The way they part when you are attracted to someone, they way they break into a smile around your friends, the small frown they form when something is wrong.
Lips.
They are the feature on our face that many of us first notice when we look at others, and the feature that many of us are attracted to.
Marian Hill took that seductive feeling of lips and produced a beautifully sexy song about them called, what else, ‘Lips’. Vocalist Samantha Gongol has always impressed us with her way to sing fairly tempting vocals about everything and anything but she really shines on this song. She paints a picture of these lips that you dream about, those perfect lips on that perfect someone. Along with her vocals, producer Jeremy Lloyd spins his magic with a combination of electronic melodies, voice rendering, snap sounds, and some drums to carry this stimulating song to the very end. This duo has found a singly sound that is unlike much we hear these days, and they continue to show why they work so well together, and why their music is so damn addictive.

[Deep House] Bobby Nourmand – THE DOORS X PEACE FROG

Bobby Nourmand
THE DOORS X PEACE FROG

Made on the same block as Jim Morrison’s last LA residence, and released on Jim’s birthday (12/8), Bobby Nourmand is making damn sure to give some praise to one of the people who inspired him the most, and he’s doing so with a deep house interpretation of this legendary track from The Doors.

Blood in the streets in the town of New Haven
Blood stains the roofs and the palm trees of Venice
Blood in my love in the terrible summer
Bloody red sun of fantastic L.A.

Nourmand let the lyrics more so than the music be his focus for this chilling remix, using their ominous message to craft a dark and cavernous soundscape. The synth structure is deep and surging, pairing perfectly with the heavy bassline and echoing snare slaps in a way that intensely engages the listener throughout.

This tune is a free download on Bobby Nourmand’s soundcloud page. Make sure to head over there, follow him, then snag an MP3 for your personal collection.

Always This Late (Illenium Remix)

Remixes of ODESZA’s songs will continue to stream into our inboxes, and we will continue to be impressed with many of them. Denver based artist Illenium has put a beautifully electronic melody over ODESZA’s ‘Always This Late’ to create a kind of magical remix. The song reminds me of a scene from a futuristic movie, where the hero is fighting desperately for their nation, their way of life, or the one they love. Illenium has taken this original and bumped it up to a true electronic song, adding in beautiful piano melodies and synth progressions to add a certain luster to the original song. Get ready for a wild trip with this remix, Illenium wants to show it’s never too late for a great remix.

[Deep] Dinnerdate – Want You EP

artworks-000098873482-yh7ee7-t500x500

Munich’s Dinnerdate is rounding out a stellar year in the best way possible with his first official EP, Want You, hitting Beatport a few days ago. The title song sticks to his deep chilled roots, and highlights the progression in his signature sound throughout 2014. As has become custom with Simon, beautiful piano melodies accompany catchy vocal sampling for a truly addictive vibe that is easy to listen to, but hard to stop. It’s an immediate change-up with the second track ‘Leech’, as gritty bass paves the way for a club-friendly atmosphere. Far from post-midnight filler though, the creativity in the guitar sampling showcases a complexity in his music that is evidence of hours dedicated to serious studio refinement. We’re always excited to hear the results of this blood, sweat and tears, so go grab a copy on Beatport if you’re feeling it too.

The Chill Dojo #111

chill dojo

This is probably the most unconventional start to the Chill Dojo in any of its 110 editions past, but this creative take on the timeless Seinfeld theme is too good not to put front and center in kicking things off. Melbourne-based Abelard has crafted something truly unique here, bringing a smooth and funky interpretation to the theme song many hold dear to their hearts. Too often the value of remixes like this don’t extend too far beyond their novelty, but in this case ‘Seinwave’ offers both a melodic delight in its own right as well as a tasteful homage to the legendary 90′s series. Bravo.

It’s difficult to follow an act like that, but thankfully Brooklyn duo Chordashian have provided some smoothness which flows seamlessly onward into the playlist. The 100bpm format provides the perfect canvas for this bouncy version of Gambino’s ’3005′, complete with nu-disco vibes and vocal sampling driving the groove from start to finish. It’s all about the funk this week, and Touch Sensitive are dishing up our next serving of sweet sounds that will prove too hard to resist. It takes some proper imagination to implement acapella chops like these, but the results are an overwhelmingly feel-good tune that will wash out all the negative in your day and replace it with an unbreakable desire to dance. The jive continues (albeit a little less intense) thanks to the latest from Penthouse Penthouse, who switch on some jazzy chords and a spacey vibe for ‘Can’t See Love’. This one makes butter seem difficult to cut, and yet has more layers than we could possibly count. Sebastian Carter has been a consistent contributor to the Dojo in recent times, with clean mellow mixes that make for the perfect chillout atmosphere. His latest remix of ‘Jupiter Grayscale’ may be his most polished to date, with a subtle touch of tropical ideal for those long summer nights with friends.

The list of fresh sounds extends far longer than that though, so make sure to sample everything we’ve prepared. Peace out.

MissingYou (DJ Fresh & Danny Howard Remix)

We would like to give a warm US welcome to our Resident Artist for December who is making his debut North America tour starting today in Chicago. Ladies and gentlemen, the highly talented electronic producer Mr. Danny Howard. You may not know this incredible artist very much yet and that’s ok, one of our jobs is to help you to get to know him and his music better. He also has only been around a few years, and in those few years has made some big jumps with his music. It all started in 2011 when he claimed the prize of ‘BBC Radio 1’s Superstar DJ’. Since then he has made a name for himself on the island of Ibiza and taken up many European residencies. Howard currently hosts BBC Radio 1’s ‘Saturday Dance Anthems Show’ and launched a new show with Sirius XM ‘Nothing Else Matters’ that runs every Saturday night. In 2013 he launched his first album ‘Clubbers Guide’ from Ministry of Sound which peaked at #1 on iTunes dance music charts.
The perfect artist to start this winter season off with a bang and some electronic melody madness, we are beyond excited to have this European phenomena take over the ninja website. Welcome Danny, we hope you are ready for an incredible month!
