Greyhound 2.0? Definitely has a similar sound design, but anything new from Swedish House Mafia is good news. The title “We Come, We Rave, We Love” is not confirmed yet but it should do for now. The intro is certainly orignal featuring a slow and steady build with random bleeps and sounds. The drop a harmonic melody mixed with some robotic vocal editing chanting, “We Come, We Rave, We Love.” No news yet on the release date, but we will keep you posted. Cheers
Although Kendrick Lamar has been receiving the most attention as of late, it is important to remember just how dope all four members of the Black Hippy crew truly are. The Carson-bred quarter of the group, Ab-Soul, cemented his place in the upper echelon of lyricists last summer with the release of his stellar debut album, Control System. Today, we get a nice little gem from Soul-Oh. No word as to where it will end up, but “Only 1″ is certainly a welcome early-week boost. Stream and download below.
We spotlighted California artist Tom Cascino, aka Broke For Free, back in October when he released the smooth, interweaving sparkler “The Gold Lining”. Now he’s back with a new EP called The Gold Can Stay, which includes yet another laid back electronica instrumental. With its steady pace accompanied by a few atmospherics that somewhat call to mind the ebb-and-tide of the ocean, it’s sure to put you in the right mindset this evening.
GRiZ has been killing it lately and now he decides to collab with Big Gigantic. Between the sexy sax from Big G and the infectious melodies of GRiZ, this one is just flawless. Their sounds couldn’t complement each other better and they deliver a funky soul sample mixed with piercing wobbles that hit at all the right times. Cheers.
Last week at a Spotify press conference in New York City, Frank Ocean played a short set. Before launching into his song “Voodoo,” he sang his own rendition of Radiohead‘s classic “Fake Plastic Trees”. The clip is only a little over a minute, but two tremendous artists incarnated in one song is just too newsworthy to pass up on. We’ve included the original version, off Radiohead’s The Bends, below.
Despite all the top-notch material UK producer-superstar Star Slinger churns out, he believes in bettering himself. Here, he edits his very own “Mornin’” track, breathing some newfound groovy vibes into the original, editing it into one heck of a dance floor anthem. Turn it up and get the disco ball going.
Brooklyn singer-songwriter Chris Snyder, aka Ace Reporter, plans to release his debut album, Yearling, on February 26th via Ooh La La Recordings. The record, full of touching indie rock songs marked with undeniable pop sensibilities, is born out of an ambitious project (called threesixfive) where he wrote a song every day for a whole year. Today, The Music Ninja is proud to premiere the official music video for one of its tracks, “Bronze”.
The visuals, which take place in New York, are absolutely stunning and crisp. Shot on RED and combined with other mediums like Super 8, it’s certainly one to remember. Director Mike Bozzo shared his thoughts on the video:
“Bronze is a video about the past, the present, and the dreamy space between the two. On the surface, the video depicts an old man’s struggle with his memory. The images that portray his thoughts, however, are open to interpretation. The video begs viewers to develop their own narrative and draw their own conclusions.”
