[MP3 Playlist] Indie Dojo (August 2014 Round #3)

indie-dojo-music-ninjaCommunication is key and sometimes we suck at it. Music, however, seems to be a universal language that soothes the soul, melts the heart, fuels the fire, and calms the storm. If you happen to be one who sucks at the whole communicating thing, try saying it with a song. Better yet…..try it with a whole entire playlist.

[Bass] Wilsen – Magnolia (REVOKE Remix)

converted PNM file
Wilsen
Magnolia (REVOKE Remix)

Do you ever stumble across those songs that leave you questioning what the hell you just listened to? Well we ninjas just had an existential crisis all thanks to REVOKE. The Southern California producer is notorious for turning things up regardless of where we’re at. Lunch with grandma? Turn up. At the doctor’s office? Turn up. In line at Subway? Turn up with extra avocado. The guy sure does know how to handle his music in the weirdest, most eclectic way and we couldn’t be more stoked to share what he has cooking up his sleeve today.

After a successful remix alongside the dynamic duo, Candyland, REVOKE decided to give us an entirely different side of himself with his latest remix of “Magnolia” by Wilsen. At first, we really had no idea what to classify this song as because it incorporates elements from the entire music spectrum (especially, bass) such as melodic trap, dubstep, drum and bass, electro, etc. This powerful remix is suitable for anyone’s taste and REVOKE absolutely turned this pristine song into a vibey, head-banging, swoon worthy track of the week. Grab your free download today and let this tune make you question everything you think you know about music.

[Future/Melodic-Trap] Kimbra – Settle Down (P A T H Remix)

Kimbra
Settle Down (P A T H Remix)

Sometimes it seems the most forward thinking talent within the electronic and dance communities keeps getting younger every year. Such is the case with our latest find teetering on infancy, 16 year old beatsmith P A T H, who has taken Kimbra’s pop hit “Settle Down”, and completely flipped the tune on its backside. P A T H plays with sound kits and structures most teenagers wouldn’t dream of going near, which makes his take on electronic music all the more intriguing. A metallurgic synth lays most of the framework for the young maestro’s revision, while a pitched down take on Kimbra’s sweetly drawn vocals, splice about P A T H’s soundscape creating an impressively intoxicating atmosphere from the onset. We’re definitely excited to see where the future takes our newest wunderkind, but you can be sure we’ll be staying on top of it here at TMN.

Safari (AWE Remix)

Los Angeles is known as a hub for amazing up-and-coming talent, and one of our favorite producers from the City of Angels has just released a new remix. AWE is the 20-year-old wunderkind who has been tearing up the electronic beat scene with a future trap sound reminiscent of the sub genre’s pioneers, Rustie and Hudson Mohawke.

His remix of “Safari” by Plastician packs a punch with powerfully anthemic bass. Paired with futuristic flutes and fiery lasers, “Safari” is teeming with heavy grime and raw energy, making this young producer one to watch for. The remix, which was released via Plastician’s label Terrorhythm, appears on ‘Plasticman Remixed’, which is a collection of releases from his earlier alias, Plasticman.

SBTRKT
New Dorp, New York feat. Ezra Koenig

Since the release of his self-titled debut album in 2011, SBTRKT‘s follow-up project has consistently been one of the most anticipated records in music. Today, almost exactly three years later, the acclaimed UK producer finally let loose the first single from the long-awaited project. “New Dorp, New York” departs from the lush synths and drum ‘n bass percussion fans have become accustomed to in favor of a far more avant-garde feel. With some help from Ezra Koenig, of Vampire Weekend, SBTRKT creates a sort of tribal groove continuing his experimentation and combination of sounds. Give this one a spin above and rejoice that SBTRKT’s sophomore effort, Wonder Where We Land, is on the way.

Memories That You Call (feat. Monsoonsiren)

Over eighteen months, Odesza has exploded, and we aren’t complaining one bit. When they came through Orlando, I had an opportunity to catch Odesza, and it was one of my best show experiences. The show sold out, and the room was packed with happy people swaying to their music. Their performance style is amazing! Odesza switches from both jamming on their Ableton controllers, to their synthesizers, and they even do some live drumming! Completely unique performance style, and their music shares that trait. Very beautiful, and inspiration music from these two. Odesza’s new album “In Return” will be coming out September 9th on Counter Records, which you can preorder here. If “Memories That You Call” is a teaser for “In Return“, then we are beyond excited!
