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.
There are a ton of producers who are all talk about having no limits when it comes to genres. Most of that is just talk, as those same producers pretty much keep within arms reach of a certain sound. Bad Royale actually lives it. They’ve already proven what they could do with the harder styles of dance music time and time again, but now they flip the switch to bring something entirely new.
Their new EP, We’re All We Need, dropped today in partnership with Anjunabeats and Mad Decent. You’re probably wondering how the hell those two fit together, but it will all make sense after you listen to the three singles that make up the project. As it has been in the past, Bad Royale enlist collaborators including Ruby Chase, Kim Nain and Flipo.
“Blue Sky Action” introduces us to the new sonic territory, where Bad Royale slow things down for an extremely ethereal, vibe-ridden record. It’s not what we may be used to, but it’s just as dope as what we are used to. Next comes the title track, a more upbeat, poppy tune that is absolutely perfect for radio stations all across the globe. “Fly To New York” is more along the lines of what we expect from Bad Royale, but it still has its own fresh flash and flare. We’re All We Need is a must have, plain and simple. Grab your copy today.
It’s understandable if you haven’t came across Julie Bergan given her location across the pond in Norway. We wish you did already, but if you haven’t, you’re here now. The Warner Music signee is making some big moves lately. For starters, she unveiled her completely live show, as well as released her new single “Blackout.”
“Blackout” is what we have to share with you today. The future pop single is just what radio-listeners are yearning for, along with festival ravers. It’s that perfect mix of underground dance music meets mainstream pop. Julie shows yet again why she is someone to have your eyes and ears on, no matter your location on the globe. Listen for yourself, share it with your friends. They’ll appreciate it. Whether you stream it here or on Spotify, just click that play button.
Are you getting used to writing 2017 instead of 2016 yet? Do you remember to stop off at the The Music Ninja for a new Indie Dojo every Tuesday? If not, no worries. We’ve got plenty of time to work on both of those things. Just remember, repetition is key and we are always here with a repeat button.
Easier (Electric Mantis Remix)
It’s been several months since we’ve heard any new material from Electric Mantis, but thankfully the wait is over. Since the explosion of “Flips And Flops, Drips And Drops” three years ago, he’s concocted a slew of innovative remixes, along with the massive Braincase EP, and now this fresh take on Mansionair‘s “Easier” provides the same amount of gusto and hard-hitting bass that he’s made all his own.
There’s a refined sense of sleekness throughout the tune compared to some of his previous work as it juggles the delicacy of the vocals with his signature style, and it truly feels as though Electric Mantis has found the perfect medium between power and poise on this remix. If you dig this one, absolutely check out his original tune “Daybreak” that was released on Majestic Casual a few months back. It’s always great to see a familiar face back on our SoundCloud feeds, and Electric Mantis continues to bring quality material to the table every single time.
All You Ever Talk About
Whethan and Oliver Tree may have only put out two songs together so far, but they already are demonstrating a calculated approach to crafting insanely catchy pop music. “When I’m Down” marked a deviation from Whethan’s usual sound, and the inclusion of Oliver Tree is what really brought the entire song over the top. Their newest effort pulls back the reins on Tree’s vocals as he focuses more on a co-production role, and “All You Ever Talk About” leans more toward a full-bodied electronic tune than a pop record as a result.
Their distinct collaborative sound still shines through, so it goes without saying that this is yet another earworm from the intriguing duo. We’ve got another free download on our hands, so be sure to grab that and support these guys in any method you can. You’ll be hearing more from them in the future without a doubt.
