Party (Birthday Boy Version)
They say it’s not a “Party” until the Birthday Boy walks in–or at least we think they do. If it’s not a saying yet, then it definitely will be after you feast your ears upon this enticing remix of Beyoncé‘s festive classic from the savvy Canadian up-and-comer. With his flair for crafting bouncy rhythms and infectious melodies that drill themselves into your brain, Birthday Boy turns the funk up to new levels that immediately force your toes to begin tapping uncontrollably. It’s the type of fun, upbeat song that makes you wish you could repeat summer all over again, and though it may be sacrilegious of us to say, we think we prefer this birthday party even more than the original.
Say My Name feat. Zyra (Jai Wolf Remix)[Counter Records]
Hopefully you haven’t grown tired of hearing the million Odesza‘s “Say My Name” remixes out there, but this one is right up there with the best ones. New York-based producer Jai Wolf recently released his take on the popular tune, and let’s just say it’s oh so juicy!
Ranges from melodic dubstep to chill trap, Jai Wolf cleans it up with a slower trap beat, while staying true to the original track by keeping its melody and Zyra’s vocals. It starts off with this deep bass which sets the stage for this banger remix, and when the drop comes, these unique oriental sounding synths take the spotlight. It’s one of those tunes that are so catchy that you can’t get enough of.
Make sure to catch him at his first headlining show for “I’m Shmacked NYC” tomorrow at Stage 48! With so many tricks up his sleeve, Jai Wolf is definitely one of the more exciting artists to watch.
Another month has come and gone and we have to say goodbye to our resident artist Klingande. We enjoyed getting to know this amazing artist a little bit more in our interview, loved the insane mini-mix he threw down, and for a final treat asked him what top 5 songs he has on his mind these days to get down to. His choice of artists is tickling our ears, you might find yourself liking some of these less mainstream artists, lord knows we are enjoying each and every one of them.
I am already jamming to these hot little numbers and I am sure you will be do. Au revoir Klingande, excited to hear more amazing music from you and thanks for being part of the ninja family.

IDFWU (CRVFTSMEN REMIX)
It’s been a hot minute since we’ve posted anything remotely similar to this 808 trap, but this new joint by CRVFTSMEN was far too good to pass up. This Boston-based trio has been making some of the best hip-hop remixes out there for quite some time, however they flew onto everyone’s radar in a hurry with this new Big Sean cut. CRVFTSMEN make their TMN debut today with IDFWU, their latest and greatest remix that is just bursting at the seams with energy. It’s still widely debated in some circles how to properly dance to trap, but I can tell you certainly won’t care when this drops at a club as you hurdle your way to the dancefloor.
Guns For Hire (NGHTMRE Remix)
LA-based producer NGHTMRE just dropped this much anticipated remix of a Charlie Darker track titled “Guns For Hire”, and he’s definitely holding it down for all the club bangers and making a name for himself. Incorporating trap and dance into Charlie Darker’s electro-house goodness, NGHTMRE is definitely in his element. The buildup will leave you wanting more and more, and the epic drops will make you dance your pants off. It’s unique, catchy and the hard-hitting bass just seals the deal for everybody. Talk about a turn up jam!
Call me a psychic, but very soon you will probably hear this song at every club you go to. Needless to say, we would want to see more of this talented producer.
Say My Name (Slow Magic Remix)
Odesza‘s “Say My Name” has officially become one of the most remixed tunes ever since it came out alongside their In Return album. Everybody wants a piece of this delicious cake but not everyone gets a hold of its essence. Slow Magic‘s take on the song is probably, in our opinion, one of the best versions out there.
Featuring his very own father on the guitar solo, Slow Magic manages to put in his own twist to the already amazing collaboration. It starts off with his sweet signature piano chords, with the original chorus fading in the background. When the beat drops, it’s everything Slow Magic represents. The epic synths, the hardhitting drums and the killer guitar solo steal the spotlight for this remix while crediting the original tune. So much is put into the production of this rework that we can’t help but admire these talented musicians whose styles compliment each other so well. So go check it out above, give the other remixes from their ongoing competition a listen here, and tell us what you think!
Letting Go (Thomas Jack Remix)
It’s been a bit since we’ve featured one of our favorite burgeoning artists and one of the leading faces of these laid back Tropical House vibes which have so heavily been permeating dance blogs everywhere, Thomas Jack, and the moment we heard the opening bars of his latest remix we knew our Ninjas had to get on the train as well. Taking form behind a punchy kick-line, stabby violin progression and actual self-recorded waves from the beaches of Tulum, Jack’s revisioning of Ben Sollee strays a bit from what has become his signature tropical sound of modulated pan flutes and airy synths, rather opting for a deeper, longing and almost melancholy atmosphere this time around. Thomas Jack continues to be one of the few electronic artists constantly pushing their sound forward, which is also the reason we’ve found ourselves writing about most everything that emanates from his pristine catalog. It’s hard to imagine the Australian wunderkind will be giving away his music for free for much longer so get on it, grab the free download from his Facebook page, sit back, and let those lush, chilled, housey vibes wash over you.
