OG Bassnectar is back. It has been a while since this San Francisco native has had a release of this stature. Taking the already grimey track “Sugarcube” from RUN DMT and slapping it with some filthy bass abuse. Starting with a high pitch swirling synth, backing it up with some heavy wobbles, all preparing you for the second drop which is just ridiculous. DRRROOOPP. Bringing some nastiness that reminded me of old school Rusko, fit for melting anyone in earshot. Cheers.

Laidback Luke has a knack for pumping out anthem after anthem. This one featuring some big room sounds that have already been supported by the likes of Steve Aoki, Diplo, Armin Van Buuren, Thomas Gold, and Sander Van Doorn. LBL transforms this track from SAVOY into a dance floor killer bringing massive drums, booming synths, and the always sexy vocals from Heather Bright. This should keep your foot moving all week long. Cheers.

Maya Jane Coles, one of the hottest DJs out there, has teamed up with great British songstress Florence Welch to remix her latest single, ‘Spectrum’.

Dada Life’s iconic track, Kick Out the Epic Motherf**ker has been become a stem for two other artists who strongly represent their sub-genres of the EDM movement.
Canadian producer, Datsik has made a name for himself by providing a heavy, mechanistic style that at times supports the myth of Dubstep, stating that the genre originated in the bowels of our favorite Autobots and Decepticons. On this remix, Datsik leads with the harmonious sample from the original hook before cutting to his big bass reveal by dropping a tremendous amount of high energy backbeat bass and whipping synths strong enough to contort the face and break the neck.
Swede progressive house DJ, Otto Knows does his best to cut to the point and represent progressive house by leading with the dance-centric, four on the floor bass and heavy synth before dialing back and sampling vocals. The remix does what progressive house does best, it adds density and volume while keeping us intrigued with diverse crescendos, creative sampling effects and swaying EQ.

The time is upon us where our migratory patterns tell us to gravitate towards local watering holes, shed our layers and don our shiniest frocks. With that being said, every sunny occasion deserves an anthem and funky electronic duo, The Knocks give us the dose of dance we need to cure our itchy feet.
The track soothingly begins with a ringing xylophone before a funky bass line leads in Santigold’s first verse. If by this time you haven’t surprisingly caught your toe tapping, then holy french toast how much did you drink last night? Have no fear, the acapella chorus you’re about to hear will drop into a shoulder swaying soiree of gritty bass, synths and echoing vocal samples that are sure enough to keep your heart rate high and your spirits elevated. This tune is well suited for any day party celebration you’re sure to encounter. Please, dance responsibly.
Enjoy your summer and be sure to catch The Knocks on tour with Dragonette this September.

With coming to The Music Ninja, you are surely looking for a song to make you dance or simply help make the craptastic day a tad better. Today we have for you just that, and it comes with the help of Berlin-native producer Wankelmut reworking the amazing original Reckoning Song by Asaf Avidan & The Mojo’s featuring Shlomi Shaban. Wanklemut took it upon himself to turn a courageously soulful original into the tenacious track, modernized for today’s consumption. No stranger to using orchestral instruments to drive the beat in most of his originals, Wankelmut remix of this classic only seems fitting. A driving and equally soothing deep bassline paired with the power and raw emotions from the original vocals, simply produces a fluid and majestic experience rooted in organic melodies. It is songs like these that really help bring more exposure to the electronic world. Unique in its delivery, rich in it’s flavor, this is surely 7 minutes of a sonic haven never to forget.
