[Chill/Electronica/Future-House] Autograf – Magic Stick

2
Autograf
Magic Stick (ft. 50 Cent & Lil Kim)[Free Download]

I’m not going to lie, this writer has long time been a fan of all things Curtis Jackson, so when Autograf’s complete rework of 50 Cent & Lil Kim’s timeless and tawdry classic “Magic Stick” came across our desks, it most certainly called for a little attention. This freshly faced producer in the electronic arena manages to deconstruct a completely pop-centric radio-rap hit and run it all the way down to a cool, melodic stride using the original hook as its driver while adding all kinds of new layers. Be sure to look out for Autograf as this is the debut track, and  a pretty darn good one at that. You can grab a free download too, so don’t be bashful Ninjas.

Killing Fields of Ontario – Our Place To Drown [TMN Premiere]

Killing Fields of Ontario
Our Place To Drown

Rising London-based indie group Killing Fields of Ontario continue to exhibit chemistry-filled layers of sounds as they introduce their latest album “How The World Ends”. Echoing influences including The Decemberists and The National, Killing Fields Of Ontario are capable of bringing a fresh new interpretation to contemporary folk. Their single “Our Place To Drown” is full of vivid imagery with an uplifting instrumentation that lends itself a bigger than life sound, yet it is humble in its approach. And perhaps that is one of the many things Killing Fields of Ontario does so well, creating elaborate sounds that are drenched with genuine emotion.

The Music Ninja is blessed to premiere ‘Our Place To Drown’ one of the standout singles from their latest album, How The World Ends out November 4th on KFoO Records.

[TMN Interview] Adventure Club’s progression from Pop-Punk highschoolers to Dubstep kings

AC
Adventure Club
Superheroes Anonymous Volume. 3

This past weekend, Red Rocks was taken over by Rowdytown. TMN has the chance to sit down with the Canadian boys of Adventure Club and learn more about their musical pasts, their love for macaroni and cheese, and why you will always find them wearing bunnyhugs.

TMN: This evening I have the pleasure of sitting down with Christian and Leighton, the duo who we all know as Adventure Club. Guys thank you so much for taking the time to sit down with us at Rowdytown.

AC: Bonjour Music Ninja, c’est bien?

TMN: First I have to say, welcome back to Red Rocks, how many times is this playing here for you now? What are a few things you love about playing at this incredible outdoor venue?

C: This is our second time here. The first time we played here was during the day and today the sunset and the light projection on the rocks is such an unbelievable experience.

L: You get to see everyone with their glow sticks up in the air

C: (Laughs) Even if they are throwing them at you!

L: With really big drops you would see all these glow sticks just go flying in the air is was incredible.

C: I can’t get over the projection on the rocks.

L: And we got to play with our favorite Big Gigantic…well and of course Carnage and the boys.

TMN: I recently read another interview in which you said the show that surprised you the most was your show in Boulder, Colorado about two years ago when you two were just starting out (I was there side note, it was an amazing show). Was that one of those ah-ha moments in which you realized this could all get huge? That Adventure Club might have the chance of becoming something big?

C: We hadn’t been playing for too long and we weren’t too experienced with a live set yet. So we figured the music we were playing was the music we knew and no one else knew. We came into Colorado and played more than one show and everyone knew our songs.

L: And they knew our songs, like our original songs which was a huge shocker. We were shocked and impressed. I give a lot of that credit to Nick from This Song is Sick for spreading our shit around Colorado he’s been a big help with that.

Heart-Ships – Pinhole of Light [TMN VIDEO PREMIRE]

Heart-Ships 'Pinhole of Light'

Lately we’ve been coming across a lot of cinematic music lately, and “Pinhole of Light” is no different. While this tune from Leeds based Heart-Ships has been out for some time (released on EP1), the video is of course premiering here today on The Music Ninja.

This guitar centric tune, filled with Nutall’s flawless looping hooks, is accentuated by seeing them performed live. Directed by Fionn McSherry of Bunker-London, the video is nothing more than a recording of Heart-Ships jamming out, which is absolutely perfect. Yes, we love a intriguing, artistic interpretation of a band’s sound, but this is actually exactly what is needed for this up and coming indie band. “Pinhole of Light” is supercharged with emotion that is projected by the larger-than-life tribal drumming, crystal clean guitar work, playful intermittent vocal exchanges, and intensely passionate narratives. It moves you, whether you want it to or not.

The Trap Dojo #56 [MP3 Playlist]

the-trap-dojo

Starting off this weeks dojo, we have a mind blowing unreleased track from Cashmere Cat that was ripped from his recent mix for Gilles Peterson. Pretty standard Jersey Club anthem titled “Pearls”, don’t miss that mix though, its glorious. Next up is more Jersey Club heat, this time GRiZ remixing Childish Gambino‘s track “Heartbeat”. Mr. Carmack teams up with Arnold for a release on Team Supreme titled “Rock Bottom”, absolutely massive tune. Djemba Djemba’s track “I Just Go” gets re-worked by Tk Kayembe, for a very satisfying take on the original. Just Blaze and Baauer’s anthem “Higher” gets wiped of all the Jay Z samples for this hard hitting Instrumental version. Brillz official remix for Katy Perry’s single “Roar” is chop full of the laser infused bass you’ve been looking for. And don’t miss the rest featuring: Penthouse Penthouse, Wave Racer, CRNKN, DJ Sliink, Major Lazer, Bassnectar, UZ, Carnage, FREE DRINKZ, Free n Losh, Cafe Con Leche, and Flaxo. Cheers.

[House] option4 – Street Love

option4streetlove
Street Love (Original Mix)
option4

While Colorado and more specifically the city of Denver has become somewhat of a haven for the more aggressive electronic genres, a definite paradigm shift towards the underground house movement has begun to spring up within the last few years thanks in part to artists like option4. The “deeper than disco and more soulful than house” producer has been constantly upping a savvy set of production chops and while we have been quite fond of option4’s last few releases including “All the Girls” and a moving remix of Two Door Cinema Club’s “Handshake” , his newest cut, “Street Love” is by far the most pleasing to our set of Ninja ears. “Street Love” bridges an utterly catchy gap between Deep, Tech and Disco House as well as an R&B sample from Lloyd’s classic club hit “Get It Shawty” and a little sprinkling of gangster sparkle for good measure which all result in a soulful dance tune fit for a sweaty dance floor. As a bonus for our TMN fam, the track is being offered up for free through newly minted house label Night Supply, so be sure to add this one to your download to-do list. Happy Hump-Day!

[Hip-Hop] Tyler, The Creator – Look (Feat. Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis & Earl Sweatshirt)

Tyler, The Creator
Look (Feat. Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis & Earl Sweatshirt) (Prod. by Nottz)

Just when you thought it was finally safe, Tyler, The Creator and his Odd Future crew decide to swoop in and make sure you’re taking a second “Look” before you try to cross them. Presumably feeling a little left out of the conversation lately, Tyler teams up with three of his finest running mates–Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis, and Earl Sweatshirt–to bring us an absolutely nasty banger here . The brand new track features the West Coast emcees trading bars over a dusty Nottz produced instrumental, where each member brings their best cards to the table, making it tough to decide who comes out on top. Instead of debating though, it might just be best to enjoy the single for what it is, and leave the discussion for another day. There’s no indication on where this will end up, but let’s hope that this is the first indication of that EarlWolf album that was hinted at earlier this year.
