Bonne Idée (Ocean Avenue Remix)

Taking it’s name from the often-found street name in beach-side destinations, Ocean Avenue just released a song that is represents those vibes felt while walking along every Ocean Avenue in America.

Throw on your flip flops, Ray-Bans, and short shorts, because this remix of the late 90′s tune “Bonne Idée,” originally performed by Grammy Award winning Jean-Jacques Goldman, will have you ready to roll the windows down, and catch the sweet embrace of the warm summer air.

Adding a nice little flanger effect onto the original guitar work and adding in some trop-house synths, this groovy little remix is quite original, providing the perfect soundscape for your sunny-weather adventures.

Maison Cartel
Telegraph (Original Mix)

If you’ve been scanning our blog feed tonight, you’ll know that sometimes we miss songs, posting them a bit behind the curve. Well, for as many times as that happens, we have countless other times where we bring you the freshest jams within hours of release. Case in point: Maison Cartel’s “Telegraph”.

Dropping just five hours ago on this SoCal duo’s soundcloud, this tune is a bit of a departure from their usual intensity. However, this completely original track is quite the delight, sporting a gloriously melodic build. The drop comes in and throws you for a loop, providing a dirty Lunice style drop, which is sure to get asses on the dancefloor.

Press play and try not to groove to this one. If you can manage not to, please tweet us and let us know. If you end up shakin’ it a lil’ though, you need to tweet Maison Cartel and let them know what’s up.

[Fresh] Brika – Expectations

Brika
Expectations

Sometimes days at the dojo can be a little time consuming. Constantly caught up with our day to day activities of ninja star practice, slinking around in the prone position, and learning the perfect way to extract precious artifacts from other clan’s dojos, we sometimes miss out on something special. While we as ninjas are proud, we’re also humble. We missed the boat on this one, and for that, we apologize.

Coming out of Miami, FL Brika carries a swagger that is undeniable. Signed to Art House Records, she encourages you to sell your clothes and keep your thoughts, which is a mindset that we’re can’t admire enough, especially given the current state of pop culture.

“Expectations,” is an alt-soul tune, simplistic yet powerful in nature. With only a future-bass style backdrop, comprised of a booming bassline, a dark melody, and Brika’s god-given talents, we’re left speechless.

While we’re sad we haven’t been enjoying this for the full two months it’s been out, we’re sure as hell glad we finally stumbled across it.

Northern Nights Music Festival 7/18-7/20 in Mendocino, CA [Festival Preview + Playlist]

northern-nights-music-festival-2014_raw

The most common complaint about the meteoric rise of music festivals has been their commercialization. Regardless of your stance, its hard to argue that events are generally far more pleasant when there’s some room to move around and, even more so, with a scenic, temperate backdrop. For those looking for a break from the usual stress of festivals, this weekend’s Northern Nights Music Festival might be the perfect opportunity.

A few hours north of San Francisco in the gorgeous expanse that is Northern California, the festival offers a pristine setting for camping under enormous Redwoods. Its location along the Eel River lends itself to the awesomely unique option of hopping in a floaty and going for a relaxed trip downstream—something us ninjas could’ve used at this year’s blistering Coachella. Just as its more remote location might suggest, Northern Nights boasts a refreshing lineup leaning towards underground electronic and alternative genres. In addition to the music, there will also be various art exhibits, food, drinks, workshops and yoga classes.

With the live-electronic band, Beats Antique, headlining, the festival features a number of other TMN-favorite artists, which we’ve included below in our preview playlist—we’ll let the music do the talking! Don’t just take it from us, though, and make sure to check out some of the names you’re not yet familiar with.

If you’re up for the adventure, and feeling the lineup, make sure to head over to Northern Nights’s website to grab your tickets.

Gazzo feat. Y LUV-Never Touch The Ground (Original Mix)

It appears that we have been digging the Progressive House vibes yet again, ninjas, and this time we’re bringing back one of TMN’s favorite artists to get us back in the loop. Hailing from the state where people’s skin is as orange as the earth’s core, New Jersey producer, Gazzo, has been taking things to the next level with each and every track he puts out. No matter what Gazzo does, he always makes us want to shuffle, cry, and feel every ounce nostalgia with each synth, kick, and drop.

Yesterday, Gazzo released a new original track, “Never Touch the Ground” featuring Y LUV. This progressive house feeler is jam packed with uplifting synths, intricate melodies, and a vocal that’ll elevate your spirit off the ground. Gazzo and Y LUV truly put their heart and souls in this one and decided to make this one a freebie for all of you music lovers. Grab yours today and get those feelings going!
