We can always count on black collective to deliver some next level records. Their LPs are some of the best in the world. They’ve previously released two as a part of a compilation series that gives money to charity. The chosen charity this time around is Give A Beat.
In partnership with Cadence & Cause, these compilations serve not only as beacons for musical evolution, but also as philanthropic pillars in the dance community. Artists like Kompany, ESQ, Adair, Revazz and Tuslo come back with some extra hot fire that is well worth the donation price. The third volume of black. rolls deep with a whopping fourteen singles. You just don’t find this much quality bass music in one place. Check out the full project and head over to Cadence & Cause to donate and get your copy. For more information about where your donation is going to, you may find out in the quote below.
“Donations from black. Vol. 3 will go to Give a Beat, a non-profit organization that serves as a catalyst for social change by bridging global electronic dance music culture with youth and families impacted by incarceration. The money provided will help fund DJ workshops designed to promote self-confidence, empowerment, individuality, and healing from trauma. Many of the youth participants come from underserved communities that are grappling with poverty, crime and gang culture, over-policing, and incarceration of a family member. Expression through music and dance can foster positive connections and be a powerful force in inspiring a future that breaks the cycle of poverty and incarceration.”
’Patches x Sampson – Hustlin’
We weren’t sure where Helena Legend was going to go with the second installment of her No Explanations EP, but we’re extremely happy with where it went. With another three songs she shows just where her song writing can take her, moving in yet another direction from her past works, including Pt. 1.
Collaborators this time around include Sophie Hintze and Sade Serena whose vocal work on the first two tracks are incredible. In mentioning the first two singles, “Ghost Ya” and “One Night,” we must say that the moombahton sound is not what we expected at all. Helena took to a sound that has given producer’s pop hits in the past and in doing so she’s rivaling some major tunes with her own big tracks. With the last song, “U Don’t Love Me” we get a heavy, but highly musical trap single that is completely different from the vibe brought about by the first two singles. Oddly enough, it fits. No Explanations Pt. 2 is out now through Sony/Ultra on all digital services for those looking to add this to their library.

Company (feat. Hashim & Darnella)
Bad Royale are about as legit as it gets. They have their own style – which is expansive – they don’t care for music trends, their branding is on point, their merchandise is top shelf, and now they have their own record label, Rude Mood.
The group’s first release on it is “Company” which features vocalists Hashim and Darnella. Caribbean Bass is what Bad Royale are calling their sound, but the thing is that it can be applied to a number of genres, this time around it is closely aligned with the classic moombahton style. “Company” is the perfect release to kick off the group’s new venture, bWeecause it expresses not only where they came from but where they are going. A number of moombah/pop crossover songs have been huge hits all over the world, and we’re just waiting on when one of Bad Royale’s pops off on that type of scale. Grab your copy of “Company” on iTunes today.
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.
Party, party, party. It’s that time of the week, or shall we just call it the weekend already? For some of you students getting back into class, we hope your schedule doesn’t consist of classes today, and for those of you working, we hope your boss wasn’t a hard ass today. Tonight, you’re free to roam around as you please and get your dance or your drink on; or you can do like some of us ninjas and just relax while kicking on some great tunes. Today, we share with you some incredible free downloads, including a little Latin flavor from some of dance music’s best. This week we highlight works from Rad Cat, FIGHT CLVB, Happy Colors, Anden, as well as Dirt Monkey who closes our playlist out with “Jungle Juice.” We also were forced to include the Ekali x KRANE collaboration because it is just so damn good. Enough chit chat, dive right into the music. Most importantly, #danceirresponsibly.

Miami’s own MARCI brings the sounds of his hometown to the table by way of his Favela Deco EP. The project, complete with six tracks, is one of the coolest baile funk collections we’ve heard in a long time.
MARCI puts his own spin on the style, while also delivering an array of sounds throughout the EP. There’s no point in time where things get drab. Favela Deco is strong through and through. Favorites on the EP include the title track that starts things off, as well as the club-centric “ADJ.” MARCI can make 2017 his year if he keeps putting out tunes like this. We look forward to seeing that happening. For now, fans can enjoy this free EP.
