Little xs for Eyes – Love Gets Lost [TMN PREMIERE]

little xs for eyes
Love Gets Lost

There’s two different ways to look at Monday morning. You could see it as an absolutely dreadful start to a work week, taking everything you have to drag your ass out of bed. Or, you could see it as a new beginning, providing a clean slate for you to work with. While it’s hard to stray away from the former, we always try to see it as the latter. Considering that our lives are a constant state of music coming in and out, Mondays really are a clean slate for us.

Starting things off with a fresh, infectious take, Little xs for Eyes have graciously requested a premiere for their new tune, “Love Gets Lost.” We’re constantly bombarded with hundreds of new songs each and every day, a lot of which have very similar qualities. As far as this tune goes, it’s one that definitely stood out above the rest.

It’s difficult to nail true whimsy when it comes to pop. It often comes off as cheesy, or contrived, blending in with the rest of the Top 40 that you hear while walking around town. However, LXFE (as we just dubbed them for convenience) have captured a playfully engaging progression that has all the catchiness of well-refined pop, yet brims with enthusiastic originality.

Made up of six members, diversity in genre and instrumentation is one of the most notable things about this Ireland-based sextuplet. In “Love Gets Lost,” we’re offered up a playful banter, hearing alternating lyrical exchanges from Michelle Considine and Lucy Jackson. The instrumentation boasts a multitude of instruments, all of which comprise a lively and mischevious soundscape.

Look for this tune to come out on their upcoming album. Track Little xs for Eyes on their facebook for more information.

After a wild weekend full of beer bongs, bangers, and poor decision-making, we need a little break from all those Friday Party Playlist anthems and shift into a more mellow mood. What better way to enjoy a Sunday than with the likes of one of our favorite German porducers, Glastrophobie? This past Friday, the “Lucky” star unleashed his latest House remix of Born Cages sensational song, “Rolling Down the Hill”. This remix is a bit different from his typical melodic house work, but regardless of the shift, the young producer comes out on top.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy some Glastrophobie in between a little football. We guarantee this remix will satisfy you more than the entirety of Tony Romo’s football career.

[TMN PREMIERE] DJ Fresh feat. Ellie Goulding – Flashlight (Jack Beats ‘4am’ Remix)

DJ Fresh feat Ellie Goulding
Flashlight (Jack Beats '4am' Remix)

We here at TMN are known for finding talent from all over the world; we spend hours upon hours listening to new music from artists from nearly every geographical location on this planet. Since the start of The Music Ninja, we have come to grow with artists from the early development of their sounds. There is truly nothing more exciting than sharing good music while simultaneously watching these individuals impact their listeners on so many different levels of connectivity.

Some time ago, we were introduced to the London electronic music duo, Jack Beats (Beni G & Plus One). They have become an iconic presence in today’s dance music culture and have established a veteran status as a leading force in production. The Music Ninja has been supporting them from the very beginning, so it’s safe to say we kind of like these guys quite a bit, and know their music on a much more personal level than others.

Today we are pretty damn excited to be premiering the latest remix from Jack Beats – in fact, if you’re tuning in right now, you might have just heard this sensational new remix on Pete Tongs BBC Radio 1 show. The two took on a HEAVY new anthem from DnB master, DJ Fresh. DJ Fresh is one of the most well respected UK artists to have ever stepped foot into the music industry and just recently got involved with the lovely Ellie Goulding for their DnB/Pop/Bass-heavy track, “Flashlight”, set to be out on Ministry of Sound later this month.

Jack Beats took on this absurdly wild song and added their signature JB style to give this track a refreshing, chilled out vibe.  Known for their “wobbly basslines, big breakdowns and edgy accapella’s [that are cut], copied and pasted together to create a floor-filling brand of house…” (The Untz), Jack Beats approached “Flashlight” with a similar mindset and blew this track out of the water. The moment we pressed play, we were introduced with these ethereal, ambient elements that artistically mold into a deep, melodic house progression full of intricately woven melodies that ebb and flow. Ellie’s stunning voice on top of these layered basslines effortlessly guide us on an intrinsically stimulating journey that collectively make us feel much more at peace with ourselves. Jack Beats brought us all a much needed solace from within in this remix and it is obvious that these two are pushing their productions to simultaneously give us a physical and mental release through rhythmical patterns. We are extremely fortunate to be premiering this Pete Tong worldwide exclusive of Jack Beats remix with all of you today and are excited to share this with all of you ninjas. These guys have come a long way in their musical careers and our TMN family is happy to say that we have been there since day 1, and will continue to support them from here on out. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the latest from Jack Beats. Cheers, ninjas!

Pre-Order “Flashlight” on iTunes today – out 10/4/2014

Oliver Heldens
Gecko (Overdrive) [lost kings remix]

As we wrap up the last of our work day and prepare for an unforgettable weekend, we just have one more song to take you from neutral to overdrive with the latest from Los Angeles producers, Lost Kings. The two young heart throbs have been turning heads from some of dance musics most well renowned talent, and boy do they make us feel alive. Just a few days ago, Lost Kings changed gears on us with their phenomenal new Progressive House spin on Oliver Heldens and Becky Hills version of “Gecko x Overdrive”. Taking us from 0 to 60 in just under 10 seconds, they turned this Deep House bedroom banger into quite possbily the next BIG ONE of 2014. Without steering themselves too far off from the track, Lost Kings polished this song off with some uplifting synths, a head-bobbin’ kick, and a badass breakdown that will send your heart straight into overdrive. Get ready to explode from this one ninjas because Lost Kings just gave us an excuse to go grab our car keys and drive off into the night. Also, we just really needed a reason to turn this dirty song into a punny write-up for all of you to giggle about. Whatcha waitin’ for ninjas? Grab your freebie, press play, and go do super silly things this weekend!

[Tech/Deep-House] Human Movement – Shake

shake cover
Human Movement

While we’re about a week late to the party on this one, there was no way we couldn’t post this incredible dancefloor weapon from Aussie duo Human Movement to get us to “Shake” this Friday night (see what we did there?). The musical synthesis of solo producers Blake Gilray and Edward Macdonald, Human Movement have been creating quite the ripple of buzz in their backyard playing this one out and it was high time we published their debut release within the confines of TMN. “Shake” pulls from its listener a ridiculous amount of  hip gyration from the onset as their extensive bass kit comes cleanly crashing through any set of monitors, while the tune’s undeniable groove will pull a wry smile from even the staunchest of house heads. Out on German label Exposure Music, “Shake” is prepped to make a serious run within the worldwide dance spectrum so do your cochlear cavities a solid today and let it set your vibe right before your dance parties kick into full swing.
