It’s Wednesday, and as the day progresses and we slowly crest the hump of the week I think it is only appropriate to slow down, breath deeply, and regenerate a little piece of mind. A few weeks back, Follow Me, a productional duo hailing from New York, released their sensual remix of TLC’s “Unpretty” and today they have graced us with yet another groove-filled remix to soothe your mind and body. Their latest effort, a remix of Brandy’s “I Wanna Be Down”, flaunts a rhythmic deep house bassline which compliments Brandy’s steamy R&B vocals astonishingly well. This is the perfect cathartic jam to rejuvenate you for the weekend to come, so click the download button and enjoy!
I Wanna Be Down (Follow Me Remix)
The MMG lyricist Wale steps away from guest verses to give the fans a new solo record, titled Arrival. This smooth Ceezy-produced track has the DMV-native flossin’ about the usual references of money, women, and sports. It has been awhile since fans have heard any new solo material and Wale delivers over a short, soulful sample-mixed beat. Claiming that his first album was a sleeper, his second was for groupies, then the third shall be a charm and possibly his beat effort yet.
The new video for Matt & Kim‘s “Let’s Go” is a hilarious parody of the ever-dramatic, dread-worthy “picture day,” à la Awkward Family Photos. The synth pop duo know how to poke fun just as well as they know how to put together a damn good catchy tune. “Let’s Go” has a pounding chorus that’ll definitely leave a mark. If you get the chance, catch these guys live; I saw them over the summer and they put on one of the most exciting sets I’d seen all year.
“Let’s Go” is off their newly released album Lightning.
It is not often we post the same song twice but there are things in life that are too incredible to not share more than once. The simply breathtaking collaboration between Crystal Fighters and Feed me comes to fruition with “Love Is All I Got”. You can purchase it today on iTunes and listen to it below.

This might not be the most creative edit of all times but anything GIGAMESH gets his hands on has turned into gold thus far and the new remix of “Dreams” by Fleetwood Mac is no exception. Formed in 1967, the British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac produced an incredible array of bluesy rock tracks and yet “Dreams” was the only U.S Number one hit for the group. Released in 1977 on their album Rumors, the popular single is now being revamped thanks to Minneapolis melodic master producer Gigamesh breathing into it a refreshing disco attitude. You can download it for a “like” on facebook.

The spectacular graceful voice of Benjamin Francis Leftwich will sparkle your morning with his latest single “In The Open”. Taken from the forthcoming In The Open EP, it is a soft story, misty, beautiful, and full of woven guitar chords. Even though we are already completely infatuated with this young UK singer-songwriter, the track is like a breath of fresh air.

In The Open EP drops November 19th on Dirty Hit Records.
It’s only Wednesday, but that doesn’t mean you don’t already have plans for the weekend. Let’s face it, once Monday 8am hits, our daydreams of Friday are in full swing. But we here at The Music Ninja have a little something to help you slosh through the work week: a brand new track from rising Russian producer Sohight called “Fonk’”. Charged with unbelievable bouts of funk and flash, it shows off a grab bag of electronic flare. “Fonk’” swivels and twists, tip-toes and stomps with relentless energy, making it part futuristic banger, part right-here-right-now, “let’s blaze the dance floor” anthem.
The track, along with an Earl Grey remix, is off the Fonk‘ single, out October 22nd on France’s On The Fruit Records.
