[ANTHEM] ID – Animals (Original Mix)

UPDATE #2: Spinnin’ Records has done all of this for a reason, even if this track is Martin Garixx, we’re going to title the track ID – Animals (Original Mix) until the full release.

UPDATE: Originally we thought it was Hardwell & GTA but that was proven incorrect. Now Martin Garixx has said via Twitter that is it his track. Sorry for the confusion.

Spinnin Records posted a teaser of this massive track. Now we have the Original Mix of this massive anthem titled, “Animals”. It features some booming synths and massive big room drops, for arguably one of the biggest tracks of the year. It’s safe to say this track will be supported by the biggest names in the game. Cheers.

Animals (Original Mix)

Release is via Spinnin Records

[Remix] Naughty Boy – La La La (Feat. Sam Smith) (Komi & JL Remix)

Naughty Boy - La La La
Naughty Boy
La La La (Komi and JL remix) (feat. Sam Smith)

It’s been a little over a month since we completely fell in love with Naughty Boy‘s “La La La.” With its brisk vocals and charming melody the infectious tune instantly captivated our attention and catapulted to the top of our playlists. This blissful remix from Komi and Jerry “JL” Lang brings back many of the same elements we enjoyed the first time around. As a co-producer of the original version, Komi strips down a few layers to provide us with a rawer, yet more enchanting soundscape. Crooner Sam Smith’s vocals are emphasized to an even deeper extent, allowing the listener to truly appreciate the passion behind his lyrics. If you enjoyed this new revision of the track as much as we did, make sure to grab a free download above. Also, stay tuned for Naughty Boy’s debut album, Hotel Cabana, which will be in stores later this year.

[TMN PREMIERE] Savant – 4 Days EP


A lot of artists work on music while they’re on tour. The long flights, the long bus rides, and the lonliness of a hotel room often prove to be the perfect place to work on a melody, or maybe even perfect a sample. Few artists can turn out a two track EP with collaborators though, and even fewer could do it in just four days.

Leave it to the brilliant Savant to show us that it is most definitely possible. When Savant was touring through Toronto, Canadian producers AdamK and JELO graciously put him up for four days. What happened in those four days is pretty obvious – 4 Days EP.

The first track below is the collabo with Adam K. This glitchy complextro track features choppy vocal samples and 8-bit delights that blend perfectly with the big buzzing electro beats. The second track comes by way of Savant and JELO. This electro house gem is a melody and drum driven track that features a really wicked break beat breakdown that took us completely by surprise.

Enjoy the exclusive premiere of both of these tracks through the weekend. They’ll be available to purchase on Monday via SectionZ Records.

[Trap] Victor Niglio – Butt Dial Booty Call // Elvis


A long time ago, or a few years ago, before there were smart phones, we all had this issue which some of us refer to as “butt dialing” people. Raise your hands if your parents may still do this to you ::raising hand:: TMN favorite afro trap producer Victor Niglio decided to play a little on this with the release of his song “Butt Dial Booty Call”. This catchy trap mix has nice drums and beats along with the constant lyrics of butt dial booty call ringing throughout the whole song. It is humorous because we all used to butt dial people…or booty call people and say whoops, accidently butt dialed you at two in the morning, sorry! You didn’t fool anyone kids, not a one person.

Along with this song, Niglio released a song called “Elvis”. I am such a huge fan of The King and love this remix. The song starts with Elvis talking about his cars (if you don’t know, Elvis was an avid car collector), and Niglio adds in a bit of drums, some piano, some electronic beats and then drops Elvis voice to a deep, deep level. This is a fun song and I adore that an artist brought The King to the world of trap. Not every artist could do this well, but cheers Niglio.

[TMN Resident Artist for May] PatrickReza


Ahhhhh spring, loving on all that sunshine and warm weather. Or, for those of us who live in Colorado, cursing at the snow that decided to come at the beginning of our week. Regardless, snow or no snow, May has come and with it a new Resident Artist for the lovely spring month. Before I introduce him though, I want to tell a “first time I heard about this artist” story. My boss at TMN told me how he wanted to put this certain young artist on the Resident line-up this year and proceeded to tell me how he went out to California earlier last year and had written on his Facebook page that he was going to go to Disneyland by himself the next day. This artist hit up my boss, having never met him except through working together for website material, and said he would love to go with him. The next day, these two went to the happiest place on earth together. I laughed at my boss’s story, it is not every day you have an artist take time out of their busy schedule to hang at Disneyland for the afternoon.

He is not even twenty-one yet, but PatrickReza has exploded onto the electric music scene over the past two years. This Los Angeles native is renowned for his heart palpitating remixes of artists such as Kimbra, the Veronicas and Moby. All of his remixes have dominated the Hype Machine Popular Chart’s Top 5 spots and his undeniable talent for changing up others works is getting him largely noticed by some big names in the music world.
Reza recently released his first ever collaboration with one of the biggest bass killers in the industry, Bassnectar. Reza has shared the stage with 12th Planet, Crizzly, Lil Jon and a slew of other artists.

We are so excited to host Reza this month on the site and are ecstatic to show his followers and TMN fans just how much BANG this young artist carries in his music.

The Hip-Hop Dojo [Vol. 7]

TMN Hip Hop Dojo 2

What up ninjas? We’re really excited to be bringing you the seventh edition of The Hip-Hop Dojo. This week’s collection leans a little towards the younger side, with a terrific assortment of raw, up and coming artists and burgeoning underground acts. We start things off on a rather mellow note, as Dally Auston and Joey Purp “do their thang” on the compulsory SAVEMONEY track of the week. The Chicago collective is constantly working to provide us with quality material week after week, and I don’t think I’ve ever been disappointed with their product. We then slide on over to Tennessee native, Isaiah Rashad’s “Part III,” presumably a reference to Jay-Z‘s classic, “Dead Presidents II.” Those are huge shoes to fill, but Rashad definitely holds his own over the instrumental. Next up, we have Locksmith standing his ground over some stellar 9th Wonder production. It’s nearly impossible to hate anything 9th is involved in, and Locksmith does his part by providing some ill bars. Over some swinging production, Joey Bada$$ and Action Bronson prove “Beyond A Reasonable Doubt” that they deserve to be mentioned alongside the brightest young names in hip-hop.

With summer right around the corner, we decided to dedicate a portion of this playlist to our favorite season of the year. Kicking things off with the breezy vibes are Kool A.D. (of Das Racist fame) and Kassa Overall who make up the tag team duo of Kool & Kass. On “Pleasance,” the two emcees detail some of the thoughts that might circle through your brain during one of those late summer afternoons. One thing everybody looks for during this time of the year is summer love. N’Vante Santos describes his ideal specimen with the fun and hilarious single, “Hipster Girl.” By now you must have pictured the scorching sun beating down on you from above, so why not cool off with a delicious, refreshing beverage? NatNaiel proves that nothing beats the quintessential tall glass of “Lemon-Aid.” Before you know it, you’ll find yourself at the beach, ready to “Take Off” for a dip in the ocean. Let the waves wash over as you relax to UK native, Cynikal‘s ambient, relaxing new single. Once you’re out of the water, it might be time to kick “your shoes” off (if would be weird if you haven’t already) and start a party alongside ATL’s Scotty. Things have progressed pretty fast thus far, and the clock’s now hit “6:10 PM.” What better things do you have to do than toking up a bit and cruising down the coast in your whip (as long as you’re not the driver of course)? We’re pretty sure Chitown’s A.J. Crew would agree nothing. Finally, after that busy day of yours, why not unwind with a few videogames? Maybe you could even dust off that Pokemon cartridge to play on your old “Gameboi.” On “Insert Coin,” Gameboi and his crew of Clear Soul Forces and Illingsworth lace an 8-bit backdrop with some incredibly ill verses.

Things definitely take a turn for the darker side with our next three tracks. Chuck Inglish, crafts together a slinky, trunk rattling new single with bass-heavy “Drops.” The track definitely harkens back to the sound Inglish first established during his early days with The Cool Kids.  Next up, we have a haunting new Harry Fraud single, which brings to our attention the little known issue of “Yacht Lash,” something that occurs when the wealthy among us happent to crash their yachts. Earl Sweatshirt sounds right at home over the brooding instrumental, while Riff Raff seems to serve as little more than comedic relief. We then move on to Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire, who details his desire to forever be “Draped In Gold.”

Our next segment is dedicated to some heavy hitting bangers that are bound to get you amped up and out of your seats. Opening things up is Run The Jewels, a hip-hop duo comprised of Killer Mike and El-P. The two have proven they have chemistry in the past, which is what makes this collaboration seem effortless as the two trade bars over some manic production. Our second offering comes from P-Money, with his new song, “The Hardest.” The track definitely lives up to its name, thanks in no small part to M.O.P., who are literally the kings of hyped-up music. Closing things up in this section is R.A. The Rugged Man, who’s been bringing us quality material all month from his new album, Legends Never Die, which is definitely worth picking up.

This next ensemble of tracks keeps things on a more conscious tip. We begin with two fresh tracks from Eddy B, a name that should be familiar from previous editions of The Hip-Hop Dojo. The North Carolina spitter just dropped his Hopeless Act mixtape, and both “Paper” and “Trouble” are standouts from the project. While the first track describes the daily struggles involved in the quest for paper, the second describes many of the other problems on Eddy’s block. While Eddy recounts his experiences locally, King Wojack decides to tackle some prominent issues ailing this country as a whole in regards to politics and the media. Finally, A.Jay.D. and Maffew Ragazino take us down a trip through “Ghost Lane Drive,” a lonely road that I’m sure many of us have traveled on before.

Rounding out this playlist are three of my favorite tracks from the bunch. All three of them utilize some pretty recognizable samples. In fact, I’ll let you see if you can guess them before I move on. The first one should be relatively easy, as it shares its name with the original Purity Ring single. Angel Haze absolutely murders the lush, cascading backdrop, allowing us to view the song in a whole new light. Next, we shift our attention over to Donwill (1/2 of Tanya Morgan) who eviscerates a keen sample of James Blake‘s “Retrograde.” Ending out our playlist is one of the funnier and more intelligent pieces we have here. MeLo-X produces a nice little ode to Rihanna that serves as a remix of Drake‘s latest single, while also interpolating elements from “Pour It Up” and “Diamonds.” The track isn’t all gimmicks however, as MeLo is able to showcase both his talents as a rhymer and as a producer.

We hope you guys enjoyed our seventh edition of The Hip-Hop Dojo as much as we did. As always, send all submissions/suggestions to baseer@themusicninja.com.
