Flume
Insane ft. Moon Holiday (Sebastian Carter Edition)

Any time we see the names “Flume” or “Sebastian Carter” pop up on our newsfeeds, it appears that both artists have gained quite a substatial following over the course of time. Yesterday the internet experienced something rare and unforgettable with Sebastian Carter’s latest edit of one of Flume’s later pieces of work, “Insane ft. Moon Holiday”. The original resonates a familiar vibe that we all have learned to appreciate and love, to which we have categorized Flume as his own entity of sound. Sebastian Carter decided to take those seamless Flume frequencies and amplify the chill factor times 1,000.

Carter interpreted the original by means of telling a story through different sounds and energies. Without straying too far from the initial ambience from the track, he flawlessly infuses this edit with a melodically chopped breakdown, reverbed vocals, and a sub to keep things chilled to the bone. These type if tracs don’t pop up too often, so prepare to drift off into Swonnville with this one. Did we mention it’s also free?

Pretty Pink Feat. Ian Late
Hey Girl

Sometimes all you need to start the day off is an hour long snooze session, a fresh cup of coffee, and some new Pretty Pink to get your body back into the groove of things. The German Deep House producer/DJ has been blowing her latest remixes out of the water; whether it be her stunning U2 rendition of “Ordinary Love” or her remix of KRONO’s “Redlight”, Pretty Pink has proved to all of us that she has a gift in transforming music into something truly powerful and beautiful.

Today we have an original piece from the producing goddess titled “Hey Girl”, which features vocals from Ian Late. If we had to describe our experience after listening to this song, the only word that comes to mind is PHENOMENAL. “Hey Girl” combines a heavy, deep atmospheric vibe with a flawless progression along with an intricately refreshing vocal that takes this song to new heights. Pretty Pink has set the bar for Deep House producers around the globe and we can’t wait to see what she has up her sleeve in the near future. Make sure to grab a free copy of “Hey Girl” but hurry because it’s only up for the next 2 weeks!

What's To Come

Longest track title, possibly ever? Maybe. Don’t let that even fool you though. SevnthWonder has been on our radar for a while, along with CREAM COLLECTIVE, but through him we discovered A Sol Mechanic and TokyoMegaplex. After listening to this, we really recommend you check out all of their other work. We imagine working on a triple collaboration could become a bit hectic, but you hear no signs of that in “What’s To Come”.

This headnodic track will have your spirits uplifted, and the rhythm will cause your body to sway. The variety these three bring to the table on this track is unreal. We can’t really think of many songs that combine congos, seductive vocals, and disco vibes all in one. All around, this blissful track is amazing, and is the perfect tune to wind down to with the end of summer approaching.

[Event Review] Mad Decent Block Party – Fiddler’s Green, Colorado

Friday afternoon in Denver treated the Ninja crew to Diplo’s eclectic lineup of Mad Decent label mates and friends during the Mad Decent Block Party. The stage was set at the 17,000 person venue Fiddlers Green, located about ten minutes from downtown. Over almost a 10 hour long party, the audience was treated to a revered lineup of old and new including; Flosstradamus with a few guest appearances, incredibly strong up-and-coming Mr. Carmack, Rif Raff, Griz, Diplo, Outkast, and more.

The newer recruits to the label and tour like Jodi High Roller (making a quick departure from Katy Perry apparently), Liz, Djemba Djemba and Mr. Carmack took the stage masterfully with a lineup of big beat, trap, g-rap, and even funk at the beginning of the day as the sun started to fade off. The three o’clock start time didn’t stop the audience from getting rowdy right off the bat. The setting was packed full of young and old that made the atmosphere actually feel like the original concept held in Philadelphia.

After the crowd was fully warmed up, trap stars Flosstradamus (less Autobot) came out to start the train of guest appearances. The duo, who have been on a perpetual roll since their re-emergence a few years ago dominated the trap scene for the night. It was full blown damn son where’d you find this one, see what I did there? Once J2k started to get into his element, Waka Flocka popped on stage dreads-a-shaking to smash out a hip-hop trap set. To finish things off Dominic Lalli of Big Gigantic came out for a final note prepping the audience for fellow sax player and former tour mate Griz. HDYNATION was out.

Griz, always a well received musician amongst the Denver crowd, played a set right on par with the HDYBYS, prepped graciously for ringleader Diplo. In true Diplo fashion the tempo was driving, the sun had set, the party got turnt and the audience was into it. The label head tuned the crowd into his signature high speed and big drop style seamlessly from the multitude of genres performed previously throughout the night. After catching shade from some of his previous block party stops about banning Kandi and glowsticks, the unphased veteran put out a flood of new remixes and releases. DJ Snake’s ‘Turn Down For What’ moved the more mainstream crowd, his remix of Lorde’s ‘Tennis’ ebbed from his remix of Calvin Harris’ ‘Summer’ and landed on his own track ‘Revolution’. Diplo knows his audience so clearly it’s almost laughable if something happens to deter their attention for a second.

Hats off to you Thomas.

Outkast, whom finished the night, almost can’t be captured by words anymore. The enigmatic duo recently emerged for their reunion tour starting off with the likes of Coachella and progressively capturing the younger audience at each stop they’ve made. The duo have kept the formula the same recently with their faster pace classics, a black jumpsuit worn by Andre 3000 engraved with a plethora of quotes, and the same low-slung funk, fluid raps and gritty Southern soul. The two hour long set brought out all the staples; ‘Kryptonite’ flowed into ‘Ghetto Musick’ into ‘Hey Ya!’, ‘Player’s Ball’, ‘Int’l Player’s Anthem’, and a guest spot from Killer Mike during ‘The Whole World’ while Andre 3000 did pushups during Big Boi’s entire verse to end the whole party. The two haven’t lost it in 22 years now. More clear than ever, that isn’t going to change anytime soon.

Needless to say, we’ll be back, and take another half day of work off.

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

Zhu
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.
