Bad Blood (Lido Remix)
Norwegian producer Lido has quickly become a Ninja favorite over the last few months with his unique style that embodies everything we love about EDM’s current trajectory. On his latest masterfully crafted remix, the young artist takes on Bastille‘s hit “Bad Blood” completely transforming the original’s dark vibe into an enormous and triumphant one. Lido has a way of dropping out the instrumental and/or vocals at just the right times helping solidify his brand of minimal, future-bass bounce. On “Bad Blood,” he combines this with drum ‘n bass percussion making for a dynamically energetic sound. Enjoy above and look out for Lido’s debut EP, Pelican Fly, set for release on June 23rd.

One Day At A Time
WAITING GAME (ENNUI REMIX)
If we had to pick an artist that we would want to be remixed for the rest of our lives, hands down, Banks would be our choice. Her soothing vocals exude enough soul to make every redhead (myself included) feel as if we actually do have a soul ourselves. Now that the world has been treated to the enticing sound frequencies of Banks, TMN has an extra special premiere for you today from Future Bass boss, Ennui.
The Chicago native took on the incredible Banks song, “Waiting Game”, to which he takes us down a bass-heavy road that leads us to a pond full of sensual feels. As we cleanse our souls in this pond, we experience a range of feelings that move fluidly throughout our veins. Each and every beat emits the type of passion and depth to make you question the definition of beauty itself.
Ennui effortlessly transformed “Waiting Game” into one of the most intrinsically pleasing songs of the year. As the future bass movement continues to roll through our world, Ennui continues to bring forth new sensations to his production that gives us a reasons to feel the music on an entirely different level. So sit back, relax, and let the ethereal beauty of Banks and Ennui cleanse your soul and give you life.
Asmaa (Original Mix)
‘Tribal House’ like this has always had a quality of bringing out my primitive roots and making me dance. This morning when I woke up there were some serious gems in my inbox. The first song I checked out had me convinced it was going to be a good day. That record was Abu Ashley’s “Asmaa”. The tribal percussion and choir makes me want to rub mud on my face and go to battle against the neighbor village. I have always been addicted to minimal house like this, but haven’t been seeing as much of it lately. Let’s hope that Abu Ashley makes it somewhat of a growing trend to do songs in this style, because this track blew me away!
Fool's Gold Records
Ignition Remix (Giraffage Remix)
Back in late April, I was blessed with the opportunity to see Giraffage live here in Orlando. Whenever I go out to an event there is always a song that stands out to me. Giraffage was an amazing performer and no exception to that. The song of the night that really grabbed me and got stuck in my head was a remix to R. Kelly’s “Ignition Remix”. I kept asking around who’s remix it was and not one person told me Giraffage; everyone was clueless. Today has been an amazing day for me, being that I found out the remix was actually by Giraffage himself!
Giraffage seems to be making all sorts of moves with his career. This remix of R. Kelly’s classic, “Ignition Remix”, was in celebration to being signed to Fool’s Gold Records and he’s about to go on tour with Porter Robinson. It’s becoming apparent that Giraffage is about to blow up! Not to say that Giraffage isn’t huge already, but soon enough he will be a household name so to speak. With an EP coming out very soon on Fool’s Gold Records, expect to hear this name more frequently from us.
Hella Good (Dr. Fresch's Summer Revival Remix)
With temperatures rising stateside, our auditory focus always begins to shift upwards towards more radiant, sunlit sounds, especially in regards to dance music. So right when we were in need of some honey-coated shake inducing deep rhythms, L.A. house purveyor Dr. Fresch gifted us with his newest remix; this time of No Doubt’s 2001 pop smash “Hella Good”. While the original tune doesn’t exactly scream pool vibes or palm trees aside from lyrical content, Dr. Fresch has reinvigorated “Hella Good” and Gwen Stefani’s luscious, powerful vocals with signature highs and a rooted bass line; but taking this edit to even greater heights is an absurdly groovy alto-saxophone line written and performed by Sapphire Adizes which just oozes sexiness. We’ve been all ears to Dr. Fresch’s latest string of remixes, and today’s will certainly keep us in that piqued state of mind. Grab a Mai-Tai, slip on a little Summery dance attire and grab the free download to kick this Hump Day into gear.
The G-Unit comeback machine doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon, as the crew have just dropped their second track in 2 days, this time rhyming over Drake‘s latest single, “0-100.” While many will be quick to dismiss this as a marketing gimmick meant to draw attention to the release of Animal Ambition earlier today (which knowing 50 Cent, wouldn’t be hard to believe), we still can’t help but marvel at the fact that the original members of the group are at least back in the studio recording with one another. What’s even more amazing is that they actually sound pretty good together. An argument can even be made that this version is actually better than Drizzy’s original, but we’ll leave the discussion up to you.
If 50 is as smart as we hope he is, he’ll find a way to keep everyone together long enough to create at least one more project. In the meantime, fans can check them out live at Citi Field as they perform a post-game concert after the Mets face the Padres on June 14th.
