Future Soup ft. Patrick Baker (option4 Remix)
Denver’s deacon of dance music is back at it again. This time around, he’s twisted up a delightfully unique version of Autograf’s smash hit, “Future Soup,” which features singer/songwriter Patrick Baker.
It didn’t take long for option4’s signature grooves to grab a hold of us, especially because they’re accentuated by percussion-style vocal samples with this latest remix. While tactics like these can sometimes be overwhelming, often taking over an interpretation, their subtleties in option4’s application create a lush and invigorating accompaniment to the layers of deep bass hits, light rattles, and soaring synths.
Switching back and forth from a 6/8 signature to 4/4 should also offer up plenty of intrigue for dancers looking to shake up their experience on the dance floor. It sure as hell did for us, and we’re only grooving in front of our computers.
Slow Burn (Bronze Whale Remix)
Up and coming Austin Natives, Bronze Whale, have been developing their sound for years. With each release only more captivating than the last, BW’s sound has our undivided attention, along with our firm conviction that they are definitely a name to be keeping an eye out for. Most recently, they’ve reinforced this belief with their fresh take on Crywolf’s emotional piece, “Slow Burn.” Approaching it with a contrasting perspective, the remix manifests just the same passion as the original. Bronze Whale provide a direct spotlight on Crywolf’s reverberating lyrics, while expertly executing a sterling slate of vocal chops as the intensity of his words builds up. After a steady run of listens, we think it’s inevitable that listeners will find themselves lost in this exquisite musical maze designed with layers of resonating harmonies that are laden with rhythmic waves of futuristic synths.
Yo [Excuse Me Miss] (SMLE Remix)
It’s Thursday, and all we can do is watch for the clock to hit the minute that means we can escape from our duties, get ourselves home and sprawl out on the couch. Hey, maybe we’ll even indulge ourselves with a soothing glass of wine or whiskey. But while you’re pouring that glass or getting into that comfortable position on the sofa, why not provide you with a tune that will expedite the process of replenishing the energy in your exhausted bodies.
Once again, SMLE is back with another tune that leaves listeners with ear to ear grins. This time around they remix an oldie but goodie, Chris Brown’s sensual ‘Yo (Excuse Me Miss).’ The duo spins the r&b original into their familiar jazz-infused futuristic sound, providing just the right amount of intensity through funky harmonies and stimulating percussion, without giving too much change to the framework of the classic radio hit. Releasing the remix in the midst of festival season, make sure to catch SMLE perform it live during their debut set at Gridlife, along with other fests such as Moonrise and the mainstage of Dancefestiopia on Sunday.
Good afternoon ninjas! We’re sorry we missed you last week, but we are making up for it with this round of selects that packs in twice as much heat as this boiling summer is! Also with the Fourth of July almost here, we made sure to provide you with an assortment of music that you can not only burn the calories to, but grill up those burgers and hotdogs to as well.

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!
