I Got What You Need (Every Night)
I don’t know about you guys, but after one listen through to “I Got What You Need (Every Night),” I’m ready for a fruity cocktail and sandy beach party. While that’s a pipe dream for most of us right now, we’ll still give a generous tip of the bucket hat to German producer Lane 8, who has teamed up with Manchester multi-faceted vocalist Bipolar Sunshine, to bring us this delicious warm-weather house tune.
With a chilled out groovy, trop-house feel, this vocal-driven gem has a vibe that’s perfect for hanging out next to a body of water, natural or man-made. On the other hand, the solid, house bassline provides enough energy to get a dance floor moving. Aside from all of that, the infectious lyrics make this an instant car ride hit for the upcoming warm-weather months. Throw on your wayfarers press play.
Don't Wait (Happy Accidents Vocal Remix)
Some songs are so beautiful they immediately stop you dead in your tracks. When we first were played Mapei’s “Don’t Wait”, which we featured all the way back in November of last year, we experienced that exact feeling in spades. Today, that beautiful single gets a lovely mid-tempo dance-pop remix from the nation spanning music project that is Happy Accidents. Currently made up of one artist, general musician and producer; the 90′s Britpop influenced, melodic-pop trio have authored the soulful dance sibling to Mapei’s touching original. The orginal recording’s instrumentation receives a complete overhaul in favor of sticky sweet melody and delicate synth work to take “Don’t Wait” somewhere only these three could. Happy Accidents’ remix has already received official support from both Mapei herself and Columbia & Downtown Records, and comes with our TMN stamp of approval all over it. About the tune they had this to say: ”When we first heard the song, it resonated with us right away and inspired us to have our own take on it — reworking the vocals and instruments. We sent it to her team, who gave their approval and support to share it with all of you.” Grab the free download here and try not to cry as hard as we did when the first verse hits.
In The Air (SNBRN Remix)
Some musicians carry with them a coveted ability to breathe new life into songs with which the general slate of listeners thought had long run its course. This morning we have the felicitous opportunity to feature an artist whom carries such a skill and is making a TMN debut in the form of a premiere; Los Angeles house and disco distributor, SNBRN. With only a pair of official releases to the SNBRN moniker on his Soundcloud, both originals, this time around SNBRN has taken Morgan Page’s “In The Air” and distinctly lacquered on his sunny-addictive club sound. SNBRN weaves compositional Indie-Dance and Nu-Disko elements with a slick deep-house groove and bass line, resulting in an even more emotive version of the tune; which we sure as heck didn’t think was possible. Furthermore, Angela Mcluskey’s unforgettable vocal stems coalesce superbly within such an uplifting, groovy sea of sounds. About the track SNBRN had this to say: “I’m kicking off the summer with a pool friendly remix of Morgan Page’s classic, ‘In The Air’. Enjoy this free remix on the beach, in your cubical, or wherever you may be.” We surely will, and for those ready to add this to your personal libraries, grab the free download here.

Far East (Blasterjaxx Remix)
Taking You With Me
Get ready to go on a ride, because Oslo based Kid Astray are taking you with them. Comprised of six childhood friends from the land of the midnight sun, this indie synth-pop act has created a remarkably memorable tune that is sure to carry you through the summer months with ease.
Made up of an eclectic bunch, including a Vogue cover model, a junior golf champion, and a Chinese/Norwegian piano virtuoso, this sextuplet has a sound that flirts effortless between classic 80′s synth pop and contemporary gold. Displayed by this premiere of “Taking You With Me”, we’re shown a love-laced journey driven by a repitious melody and a downright catchy hook.
Coming off their second EP, (due out June 23, 2014 via Cosmos) this title track boasts influences ranging from M83 to Pet Shop Boys, which will surely going to take the blogosphere by storm. Hopefully we’ll see them come through the states full swing for 2015′s festival season.
Set Me On (Edu Imbernon On Fayer Remix)
It’s always tough when you look ahead in your calendar and see four more full days of work ahead of you. It’s time like these we need to dig deep and find some amazing music to get us through the bulk of it. Bourbon also helps, but we certainly don’t encourage that while at work.
Electronic soul outfit Qtier released the sultry “Set On Me” just last month, gaining some significant attention with music lovers all over the world. With a funky, soulful bassline layered with atmospheric elements, sexy vocals and industrial percussion, it was only natural to see some solid remixes loaded up in the queue.
Today we’re offered up Valencia based Edu Imbernon’s remix of this tune, premiered exclusively here on The Music Ninja. In this groovy interpretation, we get a glimpse at some rhythmic cymbal work that provides a dancier feel that the original. Keeping the vocals intact, Imbernon has elevated this tune in tempo while still maintaining the engaging vibe set by Qtier.
