After one of the longest, most stressful weeks I have ever endured, I can finally make life even more stressful with some intense bangers to prepare you all for the madness of HARD Summer this weekend. This ninja will be banging it out like the rest of you festival-goers the next few days. Last week we had an entire arsenal of straight HEAT…so despite there being 20 rage worthy tracks this week, know that there are some real bangers in this weeks FPP.
So while you get ready to rage the weekend away, this ninja will be preparing for yet another festival – don’t worry – a full report will be coming shortly after the recovery.
Until next week, ninjas. #danceirresponsibly

Love Sex Magic (Axmod Remix)
There is really nothing better than waking up to your cat meowing for food and good music blasting in the background to get the day started. What better way to start your Friday off than with a little “Love Sex Magic” remix to get you back into the 2009 groove? Hailing all the way from France is tropical house producer, Axmod; he decided to add his melodic touch on this Ciara and Justin Timberlake classic to which he brought us back to paradise with this one.
As soon as the music starts, you are introduced with a striking synth and a mono animated vocal to drown out the wavey vibes of this ambient tune. If this doesn’t scream Summer, then we don’t really know what does. Get the Friday flow going with this number and make sure to grab your free download while you’re at it.

We may only have a few more months of sunny weather to look forward to, and Tobtok wants to make sure we get the most of them.

We had a chance to ask him a few choice questions the other day to take a deeper dive into the man behind the music. Press play on the delightful summer mix below, and catch up on this fast-rising young artist.

TMN: Thank you so much for taking some time to answer a few questions for us! We really appreciate your time. Let’s kick things off by talking about your latest release. What can people come to expect from it?
My pleasure, I’m a big fan of Music Ninja!
My latest release is called “Higher”, which features vocals from the amazing Emil, who is the lead vocalist of Urban Cone! It’s a special tune for me, and the journey behind it has been long yet rich. It’s a simple and playful tune which could be described as Indie Disco.
Begin Again (Thero Remix)
“Tropical House” seems to be the next big thing since Korean BBQ tacos. We have shared some in the past, but this may be the first time we found an artist with less than a thousand followers who destroys the style. Floridian TJ Sarda, better known as Thero, took this Noosa track and injected it with summer vibes. With the original powerful vocals combining with a new summer spin, this young artist really impressed us with his revision of “Begin Again”! You know when they say “don’t judge a book by it’s cover”, with some music they should say “don’t judge an artist by their following instead”. TJ Sarda may have less than seven hundred followers, but he is one of the better artists we have heard in a while.
If you’re brainstorming up your perfect summer activity, don’t worry about it; we’ve got you covered! All you need to do is crack a cold one, eat some Korean BBQ tacos, and listen to this new Thero remix!
Brooklyn based indie-disco purveyors Body Language first showed up on our radar all the way back in 2011 with their remix of Givers’ “Up Up Up”, again back in 2012 with “I’m a Mess” and last year through an impressive, disco-synth laden retooling of Great Good Fine OK’s “You’re The One For Me”. Today, the multi-faceted electronic quartet returns to TMN for the first time in 2014 with a funk fueled synth-pop listen, “Feel It” for an official TMN Premiere. The second single to drop off of an impending extended play Infinite Sunshine, due out August 12, “Feel It” takes shape under a rolling four-four kick and the kind of sprightly guitar riff you’d expect to hear penned by the legendary Nile Rodgers before bursting into a sun-ripened downtempo dance groover. Never have their chunky 80′s dance synths held such weight either, with an incredibly danceable lead synth and bass line wrapping the entire movement up with a lovely little bow, simultenously turning in one of our favorite original tunes from an intellectually danceable catalog. We’ve also gotten confirmation that Body Language is currently working on the follow up LP to 2013′s Grammar, which we can’t wait to wrap our ears around either. Stream “Feel It” above, and we’ll keep bringing you the Body Language heat leading up to the release of Infinite Sunshine in a few weeks.
I Am Oak
On Trees and Birds and Fire (Sam Feldt & Bloombox Remix) [Available September 8]
As the day carries on and the work load begins to pile even higher than normal, it has become evident that even ninjas can be in over their heads with the demanding forces around us. Luckily we know just how to cure these overwhelming times of stress with music to calm our nerves and bring us back to reality. One of our go-to TMN artists, Sam Feldt, just unleashed his latest remix with Bloombox in which they took on I Am Oak’s indie tune, “On Trees and Birds and Fire”. What we have come to love about Sam Feldt and his work is that he continues to push his sound with each and every song he puts out – and kills it every time. Don’t you remember his “Guitar” remix? If not, then do yourself a favor and click this for magic.
We aren’t too familiar with Bloombox’s productions, but considering him and Sam just nailed this I Am Oak’s remix tells us that maybe we should keep him on our radar as well. Just know that as soon as you press play, you will be welcomed with a lovely music box melody, a folky banjo, and a trumpet to get your body movin’. There is nothing more pleasing than the soothing sensations of melodic house during times of stress. So thanks Sam and Bloombox, we appreciate these calming vibes.
