Clear Feat. Mothica (PatrickReza Remix)
If you’ve been a steady reader of The Music Ninja, you know we can’t get enough PatrickReza. When we heard he was putting out an official remix of “Clear” by Pusher and Mothica, we were so ready. Now that it’s here, any expectations we had of its quality were shattered in the best way possible.
Patrick has been someone whose melodic dubstep style has been hailed as one of the best, but his harder tracks are undeniably special. Possibly his best yet, this remix takes a hybrid stance between trap and dubstep, bringing the best of both worlds into one. If you haven’t heard this original, then Mothica’s performance is going to be one aspect of this record that shines on this one; which is saying a lot, because what Patrick did is so good that it’s almost terrifying. If you’re looking for your next anthem to rage to, Patrick has you covered with his take on “Clear.” Check it out today and don’t sleep on this, grab a copy through iTunes, where you can check out the other remixes too!
Seconds (Nick AM Remix)
You may remember Nick AM from his previous original single we covered, Veronica, but if not, he’s got another solid remix out for us to enjoy. Shifting away from his usual deep house and techno techniques, Nick AM flips Ghost Loft into a spacey and chopped up club-influenced affair that thrives on using the spaces between the notes as much (if not more) than the notes themselves. There’s more going on here than a simple remix, and that’s certainly evident from the description of the tune on SoundCloud, which reads:
I heard Ghost Loft’s original out one night, and the lyrics and noir vibe painted a picture of a certain time in my life. I feel like music is the most powerful when it relates to us and “Seconds” reminded me that you can always find your way out of a dark place.
We felt that sentiment instantly. Grab yourself a free download and soak this one up when your feeling a little pensive.
My Only (Liquid Stranger Remix)
One of bass music’s heavy hitting veterans is coming forth with an official remix for Unified Highway. Liquid Stranger entered the dojo for the premiere of the official flip of “My Only.” The hybrid head dished out another tune that DJs and fans will be playing out everywhere.
The soulful reggae original was taken by the Scottsdale producer and turned into a hybrid trapstyle hit. The timing of this track couldn’t be more perfect, as EDC is here and its sound couldn’t be more appropriate for the gigantic festival. The newly formed “My Only” has the perfect amount of bass and swagger, emanating the groovy ebb & flow that makes these type of records so enjoyable. When dance meets hip-hop, it’s a beautiful thing, but this remix is so much more than that. Take a listen for yourself, and know that you’re hearing it first in the dojo!
It’s Wednesday evening and by this point you know what that means: a brand new installment of your favorite workout playlist. For volume 3 we’ve included an assortment of heartbeat elevating bass to get your body moving as well as a few mellow tunes with catchy beats to warm you up. With less than 2 weeks till it’s officially summer, this playlist has got your back to help get you in shape for that swimsuit!

Bat For Lashes
Sunday Love (Icarus Remix)
Icarus is one of the most impressive up and coming producer duos you will currently find dishing out tracks. They recently came out with an EP with some remixes, and now they’re already back with another single, a remix of Bat For Lashes‘ “Sunday Love.”
The indie pop single was an astonishing record that Bat For Lashes has unleashed a video for, as well as played at Coachella this year. Now we have a deep, brooding flip of the song that will have clubs everywhere on their feet and dancing. Icarus keeps the dark vibe of the original, but manages to make their version one that anybody can groove to. They started with the alluring vocal and managed to create a web of tones and melodies that grip your ears and never let go. Check out the stream of the remix and stay tuned for when it’s available to the public.
Little Eyes (zacheser Remix)
We first stumbled upon rising D.C. based producer zacheser back in April when his debut original record “Skippy” sailed smoothly onto our radar. The young artist’s latest sees him tackling the remix game with a beautiful, melodic revision of Vincent Coleman‘s “Little Eyes”. Utilizing a foundation of housey roots, disco influences and unsyncopated ensemble rhythms, zacheser paints an addictive soundscape that pulls its listener into a tranquil flow state of aural consumption; while staying true to Vincent Coleman’s balmy original.
About zacheser’s remix, Coleman remarks: “DC producer zacheser is such a talented individual & I’ve been a fan of his for a while now. I reached out to him to do a remix and he surpassed my expectations, creating this new vibe to “Little Eyes” that still plucks at your heart strings but also gets your feet moving through an easy going atmosphere of grooving synths and consistent percussion.” I don’t think we could have said it any more eloquently. Enjoy zacheser’s “Little Eyes” remix above, and be on the lookout for more from the busy artiste in the near future.
Twenty One Pilots
Stressed Out (Action 52 Remix)
To be quite honest, I’m anything but stressed out listening to this latest flip from Denver-based Action 52. In fact, the only thing I’m really feeling is the need to lace up some dancing shoes and cut up a mean rug. This isn’t a new phenomenon experienced while listening to these guys’ tunes. In fact, it’s pretty much to be expected at this point.
Following up on a string of tasty g-house remixes, these two stepped away from cutting up legendary hip hop acts like Ludacris, Kanye West, and Missy Elliot to cross over into the alternative realm, dialing up one dancy-as-hell interpretation of Twenty One Pilot’s “Stressed Out.”
With some strong nu disco vibes, Action 52 brings some serious dance floor flavor to what once was a somewhat somber song. Yet, as much as the mood has changed, enough elements of the original are in place to make even the most devout Twenty One Pilots’ fans to nod their head, shake their hips, and tap their feet.
