The Glitch Mob Talks Coachella, True Detective and Pink Floyd [TMN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW]

Glitch Mob

TMN: Hey guys, thank you so much for taking some time to chat with us. There’s quite a bit to talk to you guys about! From Love Death Immortality coming out on February 11th to the Coachella announcement, you guys have had a busy winter!

Absolutely. Things are in a pressure cooker right now. Our happy place.

TMN: Let’s start off with talking about the Coachella announcement. Since starting in 2006, you’ve played at some of the most significant venues. How does it feel to come to Coachella this year?

Coachella is one of the most ridiculously awesome events on earth, and we’re grateful to get to play for a second time. Some of our very first shows to massive crowds were at Coachella, playing unofficial shows on the The Do Lab’s circus-freak misting side stage. So this will actually be our 5th Coachella. It’s way too much fun.

TMN: What is the set list looking like? Are you going to go heavy on the new album, or do a blend of some new and some old? Any surprise guests we should expect?

Oh yeah, we’ll be playing the new album on tour. Plenty of classics too. It was designed for the live stage — the whole experience will really come alive on a massive sound system. There will be some other tricks up the ol’ sleeve, but you’ll have to come to the show to see…

TMN: While Coachella is huge, you have to have some other large venues that are still on your bucket list. What’s “the one” venue or festival that’s you haven’t played at just yet?

We are excited to hopefully play Glastonbury at some point, we hear it’s massive!

Jakwob – Fade (Kicks N Lick Remix) [TMN PREMIERE]

Fade (Kicks N Lick Remix)

Our favorite bass heavy duo, Andy Joplin and Jerrod Jordan (AKA Kicks n Licks) are back with another smooth, melodic remix. This time around, these two beatsmiths took on the stunning, drum-centric tune from Jakwob, which features fluttering vocals from Maiday.

Once again we’re shown their ability to craft gorgeous melodies that fit perfectly with the vocals. Combining a slow, build featuring intense, melodic synths with some heavy bass drops and electro style grit, “Fade” is given a whole new soundscape. While it is a departure from the original pop tune, the lyrics hold just enough to bridge the gap.

These two have quite a few shows coming up, so make sure you head to their facebook to see if they’re coming to your tow.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #75

chill dojo

There’s a big step between making exceptional remixes and building an entire song from scratch, and for a lot of artists it’s a daunting task to make every element of a track their own. This week, dojo favourite Dinnerdate took that leap with the release of his first original title, ‘Going On’, and boy did he get it right. The deep garage groove and lush percussive soundscape are the perfect reflection of this producer’s style, and tight vocal sampling completes the package for an excellent debut original. We’ve been bitten by the tropical bug again in this edition, and the main cause of this palm tree fever is a stunning remix of ‘Pictures’ from FlicFlac and Bearson. We’re putting this one up there with the likes of Kygo and Thomas Jack, and that’s enough to sum up how much we rate it. It takes only a few seconds for the sweet acoustic sampling to re-ignite those summer feelings and memories of late nights spend with the people that matter to us most. To make sure this continues beyond a fleeting moment, we’re lucky enough to have a new one from the man we just spoke about. Thomas Jack salutes the end to the Australian summer in the most fitting way possible, and though the sun sets on our favourite season for some parts of the world, this tune brings promise of a huge 2014 for this talented youngster. The partnership of Deepjack and Mr.Nu has been known for it’s ability to reinvent some classics with a new disco flavour, and their latest take on The Black Eyed Peas may just be their best to date. Perhaps it’s the memory of the pop group in their prime, but there’s a definitely an undeniable sense of nostalgia tied up in this re-work, and we can’t stop smiling for it. Always hot on the trail of a new chill jam, DJ AA has wasted no time in discovering the perfect vocal accompaniment for this one as well. Once again he’s worked some magic into this bootleg, pun shamefully intended. Funky Frenchman Prizm is not content with just magic though, and so he spices things up with some additional love and sex from Ciara and JT. Trust the French to know how to add another level of seduction with some irresistible production.

It’s hard not to feel the heat radiating from playlist #75. We’re forecasting good feelings ahead. Peace out.

Hey Ninjas! We are growing really tired of depending on advertising networks with intrusive pop up ads and auto playing music.

It has been a long dream of The Music Ninja to bring you a site without cluttering advertisement. However, this has been a constant challenge and as we continue to grow, we face expensive roadblocks that take away from our overall core values.

Today we are very proud to finally have come with a solution that will benefit artists as well as bring extra revenue to the site in a much more interactive way.

Introducing our in-house PLAYABLE ARTIST WIDGET.

We have built a tool that will let artists promote themselves, their music and even upcoming tour dates. The sponsored unit will live in our sidebar, clearly labeled and in the least intrusive way possible. ANYONE CAN SIGN UP, whether you are a small bedroom producer or a label backed DJ.

Our prices will soon change, and perhaps even become private as we try to find the right balance, but with SXSW going on, we just wanted to launch it and build from the feedback we get. Soon, if it provides successful, we can eliminate all other ads on the site and start to enjoy a cleaner interface (something we have wanted from the very beginning).

If you are an artist that would like to get more exposure, sign up right now and let us help you.

For information on adding FLYERS or Advertising on our standard displays, contact us at

Feature list:

– Automated but SUPPORTED ( We will provide any type of support you need getting you starting as well as while the campaign runs)
– Soundcloud API Support (You will be able to track all your plays just as if we posted the embed on the site).
– Live tool (Our live tool lets you preview the widget before you submit the campaign, if you need any additional changes, we will gladly help you at
– Concert Dates with Links (We let you link anywhere you want your fans to buy your tickets)
– Ninja Look (We tried to make it as part as the site as possible for higher interactivity)

This of course does not change any other aspect of the site. All the rest of the blog posts and tracks are hand picked by our team of ninjas that believe integrity can only be achieved with providing quality tracks every day.

As always thank you for your time! We are excited for what else we can improve 2014.

[NEW] Kendrick Lamar & Tame Impala – Backwards

Kendrick Lamar
Backwards Feat. Tame Impala

Although we still have no idea what Divergent is really about, we do know that its soundtrack has spawned some pretty interesting collaborations so far. This latest effort from Kendrick Lamar and Tama Impala however, easily takes the cake. The powerful single grabs your attention right off the bat, as Kendrick bombards the mic with a fierce intensity that’ll leave you taking at least a few steps “Backwards” yourself. The only reprieve from Kendrick’s full-scale assault comes through the contrastingly soothing chorus, which features a sample of Tame Impala’s “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards,” and helps provide the song with some balance. While it may seem like this one is coming out of left field for the Compton rapper, there is some precedent for its sound. In some ways the track almost seems like a mashup of the laidback style heard on “Money Trees” from Kendrick’s good kid, m.A.A.d city and his fiery remix of Imagine Dragons‘ “Radioactive.”

Check out the single above, and head over to Pitchfork if you’re interested in streaming the full Divergent soundtrack days before its release on March 11th. Featuring additional music from the likes of Skrillex, Ellie Goulding, Chance The Rapper, A$AP RockyGesaffelstein, Snow Patrol and more, the soundtrack can be pre-ordered through iTunes now as well.
