[MEGA SUMMER 2014] Vol 3: Alternative Playlist

TMN-Alt-Summer2104

Summer is nearing its end, and for many of you that means school has probably already started. Just because you’re stuck in a classroom though, that doesn’t mean the summer spirit is locked away. Here at The Music Ninja, it’s our job to remind you of that tingling sensation that you get when you step outside and the sun’s rays touch your skin for the first time. Given that it’s almost Labor Day weekend, we’d like to provide you with a temporary reprieve from the daily monotony of your life and help take you back to the sweetest days of your summer. What better way to do that then to provide you with the perfect soundtrack for your weekend barbecue?

We’ve already shared two amazing playlists with you this month, starting with our illustrious Indie collection, followed by a dope selection of Hip-Hop and R&B tracks. Featured down below is probably our strangest playlist in the series. Though we call it our “Alternative” list, this collection includes a wide array of songs that didn’t quite fit into any of our other categories. Featuring everything from shimmery synth pop to pulsating future bass, in many regards this one best captures the true essence of summer, as we meld together sounds from all over the map into one lovably chaotic concoction.

We hope this series has helped you appreciate your last remaining days of summer. Prepare yourself for the final entry in our series next week, when we bring you a monstrous EDM playlist that’s guaranteed to blow you away. In the meantime kick back, relax and enjoy the tunes we’ve assembled together for you below.

[Get Crunk] Friday Party Playlist (Vol. 119)

PARTYPLAYLISTNEW

Do you know what time it is? It’s time to stop everything you are doing so you can get into party mode. In fact, i’m currently sitting in the library fighting the urge to just throw everything on the ground and start dancing. Despite the possibility of getting escorted off campus, you don’t need to have that daunting thought in your head because it’s Friday and we know that you could really care less about being productive. In the perfect world, we all would be shotgunning beers, floating in pools, and doing everything in our power to NOT do anything work related on a Friday.

So, go be a rebel and cause a scene today because we’ve got a playlist full of riot-worthy anthems that will literally blow your mind. Literally. Make sure to not spew your brains all over the place…that might be a bit yucky to clean up.

Until next week, ninjas. Stay classy, stay sassy, and most importantly, make sure to #danceirresponsibly.

[Chill House] LANY – ILYSB (Ferdinand Weber Remix)

LANY
ILYSB (Ferdinand Weber Remix)

There’s no doubting that the heartfelt original from LANY delivered some unreal emotions and powerful lyrics for the lovesick individual. But for those craving a little more groove to go along with their feels, Ferdinand Weber has bumped things up in that signature chill style we love so much. He may be without his partner in crime Fabich this time, but even without all its parts, there’s no stopping this German machine from producing quality summer vibes for your listening pleasure. The bright leads and bouncing piano melodies would fool you into believing the vocals were always built for a track like this, and that’s the kind of polish that makes for the perfect official remix.

[House] Golden Features – Tell Me Ft. Nicole Millar (Bixel Boys Remix)

Golden Features
Tell Me Ft. Nicole Millar (Bixel Boys Remix)

After coming off hot from a sensational performances at EDC Las Vegas, HARD Summer, and most recently, Splash House, the Bixel Boys seem to be an unstoppable force in todays dance music world. The dynamic duo are starting to take the underground house music and bring it out onto the surface for all of us to groove to. “From their more tropical “Love Like This” to the heavier club riser “Black December”, the duo’s production diversity and unique voice stand far above the rest in their class.”

Today we are pleased to present you ninjas with the Bixel Boys’ latest remix of Golden Features’, “Tell Me” which features the lovely vocals from Nicole Millar. From beginning to end, this remix makes you want to hop into a time machine and go back to your favorite festival moments where we did not have a single care in the world. The Bixel Boys stepped their production game up with this project and transformed the original poolside tune into a festival anthem set to tear apart every mainstage for the rest of the year. Without straying too far from the original melody or aggressive vibe, the boys added their signature percussion, some industrial samples, and a well-balanced vocal from Nicole Millar to cohesively bring this song to an entirely new level. Only 4 more days until Friday, so might as well let Bixel Boys help ease you through the rest of your week with a bitchin’ remix to get you on your feet.

[TMN Premiere] VÉRITÉ – Strange Enough (Cosmic Quest Remix)

artworks-000088632561-67rvk1-original
VÉRITÉ
Strange Enough (Cosmic Quest Remix)

Imagine yourself lying in an open field staring up at the cosmic realm above you. Now take that scenario and imagine yourself levitating up towards the sky only to be consumed by a milky layer of ambient clouds that are aimlessly drifting beneath your floating frame. Doesn’t that just sound like the Utopia we all desire? Often times we come across music that helps inspire this intrinsic line of thinking and we cannot help but emerge ourselves in this lucid, dream-like trance. There aren’t too many artists that make us wish we were wandering about the cosmos, however, those rare entities are out there and we tend to have a knack for finding them.

A few months ago we happened to stumble upon an artist by the name of Cosmic Quest; now if you have a good memory then you might remember the gem we picked up from him and Molly Williams called “Water Winds”. Not only did that song move us like never before, but it opened us up to an entirely new realm of music that we forgot ever existed. After months of fine-tuning his productions, the Carmel Valley chill wave wizard is back with an official remix for the lovely, Vérité and her internet hit, “Strange Enough”. With an atmospheric vibe, a melodic synth progression, reverbed percussion (for a lasting wavey effect), and a layer of chopped vocals, Cosmic Quest sent us straight into the clouds with this one. Just when you think the euphoric sensation ends, he takes us to swoonville with a stunning piano outro that sends chills down your spine and permeates your skin with a refreshing blast of solace. We are so fortunate to be premiering the latest from Cosmic Quest and we look forward for what’s to come for this small town producer because he is about to take the world by his hands and take us all to new heights.

[Chill/House] Alex Wiley – Vibration (Honest Remix)

alex-wiley-vibration-honest-remix_600
Alex Wiley
Vibration (Honest Remix)

Holy mackerel did this tune set us off on the correct foot this morning. Arizona repping electronic producer Honest came to us armed with what has been our favorite tune to make its way our of her studio thus far. This time around Honest has tackled  Alex Wiley’s ragga tipping hip-hop groover “Vibration” and has worked it into a sumptuous slice of sophisticated house music. Rather than approaching her take on the tune with a formulaic four-four kick to start things off, Honest rides a wave of filtered pads and vocal chops into a gorgeously arpeggiated lead piano line  before a sampling of staccato synth stabs sidles in through the back door. Further establishing the tune’s laid back but highly danceable vibe is the way Honest has toyed with Wiley’s raspy vocal track and made it sound as if it was made solely for her production to begin with. This one’s got us feeling all kinds of groovy, so do us one better after your listen and grab the free download here in exchange for a Face book “like”.
