We had a very rare episode to close out 2017 featuring all my favorite tunes of the year and a special guest appearance from former co-host Ninja Dom, in town from London. I started this playlist with about 12 hours worth of music and ended up focusing on tracks from my favorite albums of the year. To round it all out, I mixed together 11 of my favorite 2017 house tracks. We have some even more comprehensive end of year lists from our staff coming to the website later this week so stay locked. Thanks to everyone and anyone who rocked with Music Ninja Radio in 2017! – Ash

[Music Ninja Radio] Episode 96: Saturation & Soul

Episode #96: Saturation & Soul

Soundcloud || Spotify Playlist  || BFF.fm Archive & Tracklist

This week’s episode kicked off with a chilled out soul / jazz vibe that carried through out, across genres. Although there were notable Friday releases from some veterans, Brockhampton‘s Saturation III was easily the project I was the most excited for. Their third album of the year delivered possibly their most ambitious and interesting yet. I matched its title by playing 4 tracks from Saturation III. The second half of the show delved into some jazzy, off-kilter house from Frits Wentink, Ben Hauke, Kerem Akdag, O’Flynn and more. I had to close out the show with a behemoth new Nicolas Jaar track from the deluxe edition of Sirens. – ash.

Svcred Clothing founder Thomas Clayton isn’t done launching projects in 2017. He’s taken over the last few months of the year with his streetwear brand that took dance music by storm and now he’s here with some original music to debut as Dirty Chime. We’ve got his new song “Halo” here in the dojo to premiere to you!

“Halo” is an indie electronic brew with hints of pop, jazz, soul and more. Dirty Chime puts his best foot forward in starting out this project. The hypnotic “Halo” has an infectious vocal performed by Dirty Chime himself on top of a production that he created as well. From top to bottom this single has all you’d be looking for in a hit.
