[Electronic] Mat Zo – MAD EP


As I sit down to write up the MAD EP by Mat Zo, I’m at a loss for words. Not even in just describing the project, but just in general. The MAD EP is that good; it’s going to mess with your brain and you’re not going to be able to think straight.

The whole project, including the artwork, is damn near perfect. The three track EP was released by Mat’s label Mad Zoo in conjunction with his tour announcement. From the start of the first track, “Trogoldyte,” Mat puts the listener in a trance with a majestic introduction that sounds as though it was created by Elfman for the beginning of a Burton flick. From there it moves into a celestial, bass-heavy production. With “Take It Back” Mat gets down and dirty with a hip-hop tinged original featuring Foreign Beggars. Although he has come so far, you get to hear some of his drum & bass influences from his early days as a producer. The same can be said for “MAD” who’s jungle sound will get any party pumping. It really will make you go mad.

The artwork embodies the sounds of the EP to a T. We’ve been bumping this since it was released two weeks ago. If it’s somehow slipped under your radar, give it a listen. If you’ve already heard it, you know you wanna play it again. MAD is currently available on digital stores. If you would like to see Mat during his tour, check out his dates below!

[Electronic] DROELOE – Shibuya


The Music Ninja first caught wind of DROELOE with the release of the duo’s mesmerizing single, “zZz.” Shortly after, we came to learn they were part of none other than San Holo’s label, bitbird, when he showcased their talents in his label’s first ever EP release “Gouldian Finch.”

With the Dutch artists indefinitely on our radars, we made sure to catch their latest tune “Shibuya.” DROELOE takes listeners into Tokyo through a piece that blends the forward thinking of electronic music with the classic sound of Asian instrumentals. Designing the track with layers of narrow plucking synths and imitations of string instrumentals, they create a product that not only resembles the title’s Japanese origin, but presents the authenticity of their work.

[Pop/Electronic] Jarina De Marco – Tigre

Jarina De Marco
Tigre (Broad City Soundtrack Exclusive)

The web-to-TV series Broad City is known for many things, one being its soundtrack. The collection of tracks have been curated by Matt FX, who also is credited as an executive producer of the soundtrack. Although the soundtrack is set for release on October 28th, Milan Records in conjunction with Comedy Central Records has pushed one of the singles out for stream already. That single is Jarina De Marco‘s “Tigre.”

“Tigre” is a vibrant record that takes influence from pop, Latin America and dancehall. It’s a memorable single, which is why it shouldn’t be a surprise that it got picked up by a television show. Fans of Major Lazer and Die Antwoord will especially love this record, as it has a few elements that are reminiscent of these acts. Jarina De Marco shines in “Tigre,” which is appealing to listeners who usually don’t find themselves latching onto these style records. There’s just something special about “Tigre” that we can’t put our finger on. Have a listen, maybe you will find it! “Tigre” is only available to stream, but will be purchasable along with the soundtrack on digital stores at the end of October. If you want the vinyl, you can grab it exclusively through Urban Outfitters.

[Festival Preview] CRSSD Returns & Releases BitTorrent Content Bundle


On October 1 and 2, the best music festival in San Diego is returning to the Waterfront Park for the fourth time. Can’t believe it’s been two full years since CRSSD Fest made its debut. This year’s lineup features a handful of returners, as well as some of the hottest electronic artists in the game right now.

Headlining this year’s festival, we have Sweden’s very own Miike Snow, who made an epic comeback following their new album. ZHU, who is absolutely crushing it with his new album Generationwhy, and will be bringing sexy back as he’s making his second appearance at CRSSD. Also Lido, who is making waves with a series of album teasers following a live album debut at Coachella. We are almost certain that he will play unreleased material off his new album, which will come out a few days after CRSSD. We simply can’t contain our excitement as artists like Ta-Ku, Louis The Child, Malaa, REZZ, MNEK and FKJ are all making their first debut. It’s safe to say this year’s lineup is the best to date – it’s house music galore and then some.

[House] Thee Cool Cats – Thee Weekend

Thee Cool Cats
Thee Weekend

It’s been a hot minute since we’ve last checked in on House purveyors Thee Cool Cats, but that doesn’t mean the Mexicali based project has lost any steam even slightly. With massive releases for the likes of heavy-hitters including Toolroom & Cuff under the TCC banner, the latest slice of bass-fueled, dancefloor cutlery from Thee Cool Cats, “Thee Weekend”, carries on in a new direction of sorts for one of our favorite club outfits. Formerly a duo, the club rumbling house single “Thee Weekend” which finds its home on surging underground imprint Monotonik; marks the first release as a solo project for Thee Cool Cats, and its got us hooked all over its sticky groove. In that same tasteful Thee Cool Cats aesthetic, but uniquely new as well, “Thee Weekend” sits on shuffled hi-hats, crushing bass swells and a hypnotic vocal to create yet another earworm for our Ninja faithful.

About the latest tune, Thee Cool Cats shared with us: “This is a track I have been sitting on for some time and has really been causing a ruckus in my sets, it’s what I like to call house music with attitude and can’t wait for people to finally hear it…”. It seems like his prophecy was on point, as “Thee Weekend” already boasts an impressive slate of artist support from Vanilla Ace, Croatia Squad, Sander Kleinenberg, Vintage Culture & Sharam Jey just to name a few. For our DJ family, you can pick this one up now on Beatport as well. So, get a leg up on your weekend (get it?) and listen to “The Weekend” above.
