2017 has been full of amazing free downloads so far. Each week when we gather in the dojo to put together our Friday Party Playlist, it’s always tough narrowing songs down to just around a dozen. You need party tracks, so we make sure to deliver time and time again. This week we have just that, a dozen songs for your ears and your digital library, if you so choose to download them. Not only do we have our usual collection, but we decided to throw in a little bonus for you. At the end of the list is a cool mix by Seattle DJ Tollefson that you can also happen to download for free. Before you get to her, check out records from the likes of HXV, Jinco, Meaux Green, Kompany x Wooli, Sullivan King x Nightowls, Destructo, PatrickReza and more! Most importantly, #danceirresponsibly.

Over the past couple of years, Spotify has cemented themselves as the premiere place for music streaming. We strive to be one of the premiere places on the web, but we felt it was time to branch out a bit. So, we went ahead and put together The Music Ninja Spotify account.
Don’t worry, we’re not going anywhere. You can still catch what we have to share on the website, however the dojo has grown and we want to offer you even more music. We’ve already created thirteen playlists for you to enjoy, with music ranging from future bass, to dubstep, to pop, trap, rock and even moombahton. We’ll continuously be updating each playlist, as well as creating more. Some of our current playlists include Back That Bass Up, House, Sweet House and Pretty Poppin’.
We want to thank you all for your continued support of the ninjas. We wouldn’t still be sharing music if there was nobody to share it with! In 2017, we’re looking to do some big things for you all. Stay tuned and make sure to follow the Spotify account if you are a user! Want a taste of what we’ve got going? Check out our Dive Deep playlist below, complete with our favorite deep house records.

To celebrate 4,000 followers on Soundcloud, AWAL partnered with us for something special. Alex Walsh, otherwise known by his previously mentioned stage name, has put out a free hour long mix for his old, and new fans to enjoy.
After kicking things off with quite an epic Star Wars introduction, we get hit after hit with records from the likes of Skrillex, Meaux Green, Convex, RL Grime and of course, AWAL. He even throws a few unreleased records in the mix to tease what he has up his sleeve for the future. If you’re a basshead, then you are going to like what this mix has to offer, and if you like some trapstyle vibes as well, then you won’t get much better than this exclusive mixtape. AWAL is in the early stages of a fruitful career in music if he can keep up his momentum. The production and mixing skills are there, so it’s just a matter of time before more fans hop on board. Check out the full mix, download it, but most importantly make sure to follow AWAL.
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past week, chances are you’ve already heard about the fact that Drake and Future have decided to join forces for a brand new mixtape titled What a Time To Be Alive. Though speculation around the existence of the joint effort ran rampant earlier in the week, Aubrey confirmed the project’s release date, album art and name through Instagram yesterday. After premiering the entire 11 track compilation during Drizzy’s OVO Sound Radio show earlier today, the duo has finally unleashed the full project on iTunes. Executive produced by Metro Boomin, What a Time To Be Alive also includes additional contributions from the likes of Southside, Boi-1da and of course Noah “40” Shebib. Follow the link below to stream the album through Apple Music and check out the tracklist after the jump.
If the name Danny Seth holds no meaning to you, now’s the time to get familiar. A British invasion on the hip-hop front has seemed imminent for a few years now, but there’s always seemed to be a cultural barrier preventing any UK artists from truly being able to break through. With up-and-comers like Seth and Little Simz knocking on the door–and Skepta finally reaching a new audience stateside thanks to a co-sign from Drake–2015 seems like the year they finally cross over. This brand new project by Danny Seth hopes to be the first step in altering your Perception of UK rap.
Perception is an album three years in the making from a young emcee who hopes to share his unique narrative of moving from London to L.A. in pursuit of musical success. It’s rare to see an artist dedicate such a long period of time into crafting their debut effort, but that kind of dedication and patience has certainly paid off. Danny does a stellar job of merging American and British styles throughout the 17 track effort. His rhymes are often witty and playful as he fearlessly tackles brash, aggressive and haunting instrumentals throughout much of the project while also showing a softer touch on toned-down records like “Danny Darling” and “On This Trip”. The refinement on Perception is clear from start to end, and the album establishes the UK native as a true force to be reckoned with. Take a listen for yourself below and it’ll be clear to you that Danny has all the tools necessary to be an extremely successful figure in the rap game.
To make up for last week, we brought a little extra for the Friday Party Playlist this week. You don’t get just twelve tracks to aid in your festivities tonight, but fourteen, plus a nearly hour long mix from none other than Carter Cruise herself. Before you get down with her mix, you’ll meet Jerry Folk, PLS&TY, Bad Royale, Reid Speed, Snails, Prismo, Just A Gent and more along the way. This week has been stocked full of amazing records, making this week’s playlist pack a particularly strong punch. We hope you go out tonight and enjoy yourself and the company of friends. Even if you’re kicking back to mega chill, remember to #danceirresponsibly.

Paris imprint Rooftops Horizon just dropped the second volume for their compilation series. The six track release brings different flavors of future together, all in one package that can be downloaded for free.

Six acts brought their work to the table in this compilation. Solid throughout, Volume 2 is a strong release that sheds light on some producers from all over the world who are on the come up.
