A festival season rumbles its way through the summer months, we’re, once again, looking ahead to one of our perennial favorites. Global Dance Festival is back for another three-night soiree at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado. The lineup, as expected, is stacked with some of the most legendary names in dance music, and plenty of budding young talent, as well.
To get you ramped up for this upcoming, sure-to-be-legendary, weekend, we’ve put together a tasty little playlist featuring who you’ll be dancing to come July 8th, 9th, and 10th.
Before you check that out, though, make sure to head over to our friends at Cadence & Cause and take a look at the incredible experiences they’re offering up. You could win three-day passes or artist experiences with W&W or Tritonal, just by contributing a few bucks to our favorite charity–Youth on Record.

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!
Last week we celebrated the 200th volume of our Friday Party Playlist. We didn’t stop there, as we have another handful of free downloads for you this Friday. Each week it’s hard to narrow it down to a dozen records, but this week was exceptionally so. There were just so many great ones, even Skrillex dropped a freebie this week. However, we managed to filter through them all and the result are the twelve tracks you will find below. Within the list are creations from the likes of Bright Lights, Convex, Dirt Monkey, Michael White, YOOKiE and more. Check them all out, and enjoy yourself a nice warm weekend if you’re in the Northern hemisphere, and if you’re in the Southern; we hope these records heat you up. No matter where you’re located though, make sure to #danceirresponsibly.
’Bright Lights – One In A Million’
’Kap Slap & Gazzo – Rewind (Convex Remix)’

’Skrillex – INTRO POP IT’
Carried Away (Prod. Grabbitz & Ray Volpe)
Chances are you will get “Carried Away” with listening to Mikey Ceaser‘s new single. The trap single is better than any hip-hop you’ll find on the radio, thanks to Mikey’s fire rhymes and the instrumental created by the electronic heavyweights Grabbitz and Ray Volpe.
Sometimes when electronic producers recruit a rapper or vice versa, the performances can be a bit lackluster, instead of each act amplifying the other. In the case of “Carried Away,” everyone exponentially strengthens each other with the result being one of this year’s dopest records. Grabbitz and Ray’s hybrid instrumental is top shelf; these two together are something special. Add Mikey Ceaser on top with his party-starting performance and you have a recipe for more than just success. This tune would be worth any purchase price a digital store could charge, but instead the three acts are giving this one out for free.

POLO is no stranger here at The Music Ninja. He continues to shape-shift and delve into all types of genre hybrids, and “greta” is a prime example of his dive into a more experimental approach. Constructed as an ode to his significant other, this song juggles emotional weight, jittery and sporadic synth stabs, and a powerful sense of passion that rattles your speakers while somehow also tugging at your heartstrings. It’s jarring in the best way. “greta” is just a taste of what’s to come as POLO has schedule weekly releases to be part of an upcoming album that’s sure to confuse and intrigue simultaneously. He’s created quite a style for himself, and we’re always ready for more.
