[Future Bass] KANA-BOON – Silhouette (Tokyo Machine Remix)

Sony Music Asia has a new endeavor that is proving to be quite the cultural powerhouse. Sakura Chill Beats is Sony’s new Youtube channel where they are highlighting talent from across the world by giving them the exclusive opportunity to officially remix some of anime’s biggest hit theme songs. Their latest is from Tokyo Machine, who took on KANA-BOON’s hit song “Silhouette” which is the theme for the internationally acclaimed Naruto.

Tokyo Machine delivers a smash hit of a remix that certainly lives up to the legendary status of the original song. We totally understand that music in another language can be hard for some to enjoy, but Tokyo Machine really did a number on this one and created something that sounds so fun that it’s hard not to enjoy. So go on ahead and drop this one into your gaming, driving, partying or whatever other kind of playlists that you got rolling.

The Knocks – R U HIGH (ft. Mallrat) [SUNDRESS Remix]


If you’ve been paying any attention, you’ve likely noticed that I haven’t posted anything in well over a year. In fact, very few people have posted on TMN recently. We won’t get into reason why, as today we’re focusing on why we, or rather I am back with another post.

Call it serendipitous. Call it kismet. Whatever you label it with, it’s a strange and rather comical reason why I’m here, writing up a song. It all started four nights ago, as I was watching the Nuggets’ playoff game, enjoying a cocktail, and scrolling through NBA twitter. In a moment of jubilation, celebrating the Nuggs somehow stopping Dame Lillard from sinking an endless amount of threes, I tweeted something snarky. That snark (seen below) was followed up by a brutal ratio from a guy named Jack–a Trailblazer fan and one half of the Portland-based SUNDRESS.


After a bit of playful Twitter sparring, we both followed each other, and came to find out that he had read TMN in high school. And, that I was a big fan of what Jack and Khal were making.

So, that’s why we’re here today, taking a peek at their latest release, a remix of long-time TMN favorite The Knocks‘ latest tune, “R U High?” Loaded with vibes for days, this flip of what was originally a moodier piece is reimagined as more of a warm weather take. Driven by well-sampled vocal cuts, and a fresh lead synth that walks the line of feeling trop, without going overboard, this stellar remix is primed for this weekend’s Memorial Day pool party.

This is SUNDRESS’ third release, but more are on the way soon. I recommend following them across your favorite social channels and staying tuned in. I’ve had the pleasure of previewing it, and they’re pretty damn fantastic.

I guess the only thing I have left to say to these two is Go Nuggets. See you on Twitter for the rest of the series.

Codeko
Woke Up (Chochos Remix)

The California to Arizona duo Chochos has come forth with their debut release. They’ve launched with a remix of Codeko’s “Woke Up” and released it as a free download for new fans to grab if they wish.

From the start the duo establish a fun tone with some wild sounds and bustling percussion that lead us into the heat of the party. Chochos went all out for this party popping flip. It is reminiscent of the festival-centric electro house from the big room era. These two bring that sound forward to now and stamp their feet down firmly as an act to watch out for in 2019.

The Music Ninja Presents: Mega Summer Playlist 2018

With the dog days of summer upon us, we think it’s important as ever to reflect on the past few months. For us, naturally, that reflection takes the form of our Mega Summer Playlist. These used to be a yearly tradition of ours that unfortunately fell by the wayside, but it is one that we sorely missed. We have been trying to keep the tradition alive with a much smaller taste for fans of our weekly radio show, but we’re finally ready to serve the full meal again…with a little added seasoning. Previously, we would separate the playlists by genre, but to spice things up this time we’re providing everything in one convenient package. With 385 songs and a run-time of nearly 24 hours(!), you’re certain to find at least something you like in here.

What this all means is that we’re big fans of summer at The Music Ninja and we hope you are too. There’s certainly a warmth to the season that results in some great music, but what you may not realize is how many different forms that can take. Our playlist is designed to follow the motions of going through a summer day–from the moment you open your eyes to the instant your head rests back on your pillow–and the wide spectrum of moods and emotions that accompany that journey. We hope you enjoy the ride and discover something new along the way! Listen to the preview below and make sure to follow the playlist on either Spotify or Apple Music to get the full experience.

Beyonce Ft Jay Z
Deja Vu (Seelo Bootleg)

Edmonton based DJ/producer Seelo is back with a bootleg of Beyonce and Jay Z’s “Deja Vu.” Opting for a dark bassy vibe, Seelo cooked up a club ready remake. Coming off opening for Tchami in Calgary, Canada, and with big news to announce for his upcoming releases, Seelo’s bootleg is a freebie to all the fans while we wait for new original music.

Dark and deep is how Seelo likes his house music, reminiscent of Malaa, Tchami, and Oliver Heldens’ style. It’s in Alberta, West Canada, where he’s become a fixture in the underground electronic music scene, with releases on Canadian label AtomicSky Recordings, and support from Don Diablo and Judge Jules on his official remixes for Like Mike, and Adam K. You get a strong taste of his style here, which has us ready for more.
