Inside Out (Tycho Remix)
Ninja regulars will already know this, but we’re huge fans of Tycho, who really caught their stride this year with the release of Awake. Today, we get an extra special remix from Scott Hansen & co. as they take on “Inside Out” by Spoon, who have had quite the comeback year themselves. Tycho utilize their signature instrumentation to create an incredible groove matching the original’s bounce and complimenting the vocals of Spoon frontman Britt Daniel to perfection. After the first couple minutes, though, the track goes near full instrumental allowing the abstract, subtle melodies to take front and center. We’re not used to hearing vocals on Tycho tracks, but are definitely not mad at how this one turned out. Hit play and get lost in this gorgeous tune above. Also, be sure to check out our interview with Tycho here.

If you ever feel like chillaxing, grab your headphones and treat yourself to this wonderful tune. Atlas Bound, an Australian DJ/band crossover duo, just released this gem titled “Talk”. First thing that catches your attention is the Chet Faker-like vocals. The lazy yet soulful voice is mixed with a beat that is minimalist and downtempo. The faded piano keys in the background further accentuate the dreamy and jazzy approach of the song. The duo manages to create a sound so hypnotizing it’s almost therapeutic.
With the addition of Atlas Bound, Next Wave Records is set to take over the electronic music scene, showing such diversity and talent in its caliber. Definitely stay tuned for more dope music coming your way!
Since releasing his debut project, Hello World, at the start of 2014, Atlanta emcee Daye Jack has been steadily offering his fans new material, each release expanding on the last and demonstrating a different dimension of his sound. Although he’s already shown an aptitude for singing, Jack takes things to a new level with his latest. “Still Barking” carries a distinctively jazzy tone equipped with a xylophone, steady bass line and some subtle, distorted keys. Daye Jack matches the instrumental’s smoothness spending the first 1 minute crooning a ballad that, in short, details feelings of oppression sending a soulful, witty “fuck you” to authority before spitting a few equally clever bars. For those of you at work or school right now, this one’s a great listen for hump day–grab a free download above.

Neon Hallway (Autograf Remix)
Chicago-based duo Autograf have established themselves as one of the frontrunners of future house music. Labelled as future tropical, Autograf’s style of music is memorable and unique in its own way. “Neon Hallway”, the original tune by the Brooklyn indie group Corbu is stripped down to the bare bone. Their signature tropical sound is featured in this remix, creating a rather mysterious and intense vibe. Xylophones melodies and djembe beats are also incorporated into this juicy tune, while the hollowed vocal samples further spicing up the futuristic approach.
Make sure to stay tuned for the duo’s “Future Tropical” series as they constantly come out with quality music at an unbelievable pace, and you can bank that we’ll be on top of their luscious sound for you Ninjas as well.
It’s only appropriate that JMSN‘s latest single is titled “Addicted,” because that’s exactly how we feel about his music. Of course in this case, R&B Jesus (as we like to call him) is really referring to his inability to overcome his uncontrollable desire for another human being, sometimes commonly known as love. This smooth new cut finds the contemplative crooner coping with his emotions as he comes to terms with the fact that he simply can’t survive without this woman. Living up to its name, “Addicted” is the type of song that’ll have you singing along on the first listen, as your finger itches to hit that play button over and over again every time it ends. If you’re like us, and you can’t get enough of JMSN, make sure to pre-order his upcoming album, Blue, set for release next week on December 9th.
