Mr Belt & Wezol
Feel So Good (Original Mix)

Hear that, ninjas? That’s the weekend calling your name. The good news is, you’re already about halfway through your work day, which means the sweet, siren call of Friday night is getting stronger and stronger.

When the week starts out, we find ourselves going from listening to laid-back, chill tunes to help us settle back into reality. Now that we’ve gotten over the hump, we’re gradually picking up tempo, getting us ready for what adventures lie ahead. Today, we have the perfect segway to carry us through Thursday, and it comes via Musical Freedom Records.

From halfway across the globe, this Delft based duo has us dancing out here in the Mile High City. Comprised of close friends and music lovers Bart Riem and Sam van Wees, Mr. Belt & Wezol dropped this tune a few days ago, and it’s been gaining momentum ever since. With light, tropical percussion work, a groovy bassline, and an encapsulating vocal sample, “Feel So Good” has us doing just that.

Pick this up on Beatport for your weekend festivities, and as always, please dance irresponsibly.

[Jersey Club] Zhu – Faded (Vices & Jailo Remix)

Faded (Vices & Jailo Remix)

Has your interest “Faded” yet? Well, ours hasn’t even began to start. This Zhu track became such an anthem over this summer, and possibly hundreds of artists gave it their own spin. One genre the remixes seemed to lack was Jersey Club. We waited and waited until an artist made the perfect club remix, and it just never seemed to happen. Finally the moment we’ve all waited for has came, and it’s just perfect.

Vices has been one of our favorite acts for the past few months, and they just never disappoint. This go around, they teamed up with one of Netherland’s finest, Jailo. The Orlando duo and the Dutch producer some how found their hands on the stems of the track, and created what may be the best “Faded” remix yet. Sometimes we may all have a tendency to skip through tracks, but with this one you won’t.

The replay value on this remix is unreal. It is the musical value of Lay’s potato chips; you won’t be able to just play it once. The sample from Kendrick Lamar’s “Swimming Pools” is an extremely clever addition that we didn’t hear in any other “Faded” remixes.  As a whole, The Music Ninja doesn’t have enough thumbs on board to give this track – two just wouldn’t do the justice.

[Electronica] James Blake – 200 Press

600x600
James Blake
200 Press

After his last album, James Blake has stayed relatively quiet during summer. But we are very excited to present to you all his brand new track titled “200 Press”, because according to Mr. Blake, “only 200 are going to be pressed up”.

James Blake released this track during a radio residency session with BBC Radio 1. If you’re a James Blake fan, you probably already know about his exquisite skill set of using loops. Like many of his other songs, he takes this vocal sample and builds it up with unique beats and his occasional vocals. This song is based on this sample that goes “Gather ’round the beat like campfire…”, and with his quirky input into the beat, it turns into this creepy, mysterious and futuristic tune. It’s almost like he’s building a snowman from scratch, but it turns out to be looking like a scarecrow (excuse the excessive imagination).

This song could be a good preview to whatever Sir James got in store for us. Needless to say, we really like where he is going with his music.

[Trippy] aywy. – Murder

Murder

We decided to turn down for relaxation last night because sometimes we like to sit at home by ourselves on a Saturday night with nothing but a glass of wine, a laptop, and music to vibe out to. We all know what happens when you open up a fresh SoundCloud tab and start going through your feed – scroll, scroll, OH OK THIS IS NICE, scroll, scroll, etc. When you follow people who just repost everything that sounds way too neat (guilty), you begin to wonder where the secret stash is hidden. Well ninjas, after hours upon hours of getting lost in an inception of beats, we found something that truly resonated well with us thanks to beat master, aywy. (short for Abstract Youth).

The Sydney producer (and Co-Founder of Flow-Fi) gives us an entirely new reason to fall more in love with the Aussies than we already are. Last night (or this morning their time), the beat doctor pumped some life into our lackluster feed with his latest 2 minute and 32 second banger, “Murder”. With its killer drum patterns, a bloody beat progression, and a haunting sub, “Murder” makes you feel as if you are literally about to be sent to your demise via sound frequencies. Prepare for some anxiety with this one because shit is about to get real.

[Electronic] Bon Iver – Heavenly Father (Modus Coco Remix)

Bon Iver
Heavenly Father (Modus Coco Remix)

Everyone and their mother has remixed Bon Iver to the point where it’s almost unappealing. We can give you ten “Skinny Love” remixes off the top of our heads as we write this. Justin Vernon’s genius is well recognized throughout the world, especially in the music community, so it is very rare to find a tribute that stands out from the rest of the pack. However, Modus Coco continues his sensational debut as a solo artist as he puts his gorgeously enchanting spin on “Heavenly Father”, Vernon’s latest and greatest single. Coco, formerly of Shapes of Light fame, has given us a couple originals and a Sufjan Stevens remix, however this might be his best work yet. He breathes new life into the composition with new melodies and distorting Vernon’s voice to an almost ethereal level. We are absolutely in love with this piece and we hope you are as well!
