We’ve seen the adorable cousins Sophia Grace & Rosie appear on the Ellen Show a couple of times last year, most notably performing a Nicki Minaj song, but what you are about to witness is by far the most adorable and skilled video coming from a 8 year old. She has the confidence, the flow, the swag and a jaw dropping voice for her size. It is literally the cutest and dopest video I have seen this year. Enjoy.
Andain is a San Francisco experimental electronica group that we haven’t ever posted on until today. None the less, we’re stoked that the duo hit us up with the remix package that just dropped yesterday on Black Hole Records. Andain is made up of Mavie Marcos and Josh Gabriel and have been together since 2000. Their ambient trancy style is perfect to chill out to – but it’s also great for remixes. Especially drum and bass, and dubstep remixes.
First up we have a chill remix from Zetandel. This remix is actually a free giveaway on Andain’s page, so make sure you head over there and pick it up. The three other remixes are from the likes of Relay and Front, Rido, and Shreddward and Exceed. They range from drum and bass to dubstep, but all maintain the attractive vocals of Andain’s lead singer, Mavie.
Andain is currently in the mix at the IDMA awards for ‘Best Chillout Track’ and ‘Best Trance Track’. Voting for that closes on Thursday, so make sure to vote soon!

The Griswolds are a brilliant new indie pop group from Sydney who’ve been making a lot of noise on the net recently. The band’s new track “Mississippi” is an incredibly colorful and upbeat cut that practically embodies the summer season in its upbeat feel. Between the clean guitar rhythms,the memorable drums, and excited vocal parts “Mississippi” sounds like it should be on the commercial for a water park. Stream it below and you’ll know what I mean.
The song is available for free download HERE.
We know New Jersey producer Aylen very well from the massive amount of filthy electro tracks he has been putting out. Early this year we featured ‘The Remixtape‘, containing banging remixes of “Alesso – Raise Your Head”, “Edward Maya Ft Vika – Stereo Love” and “Coldplay – The Scientist”. In a surprising turn of events Aylen went from hardcore electro, to hardcore moombahton, a progression not many can afford to. The uplifting original ‘Infinity’ by Texas producer Distantt has been completely hijacked by Aylen into a much aggressive mash of grinding dubstep at the 110-moombahton-bpm. The result is a floor-friendly gritty dance track for those wanting more out of their Moombahton nights. With whatever style Aylen has experimented with, he seems to be pulling it over every single time. You can follow him on his soundcloud here.

‘Mile Away’ is from the second album ‘This Is an Outrage!’ by American Power Pop band Capital Lights released July 8, 2008. Producer and remixer mastermind Sound Remedy, responsible for tons of Music Ninja favorites like “Boys Noize – Arcade Robot”, “Nero – Crush On You“, ‘Lupe Fiasco – Words I Never Said ft. Skylar Grey‘. Today Feb 27th, Sound Remedy is releasing his first album, ‘Haunted Valor’ a compilation of original remixes from songs across multiple genres.
In celebration, he has given The Music Ninja the premiere to his rendition of one of the most popular songs from Capital Lights. Mr Remedy completely stripped the pop out of the original ‘Mile Away’, manipulating the catchy choruses into a heavy layer of experimental basslines that are soon interrupted by uplifting strings. This remix is completely unpredictable and yet very continuous at the same time. Expect the unexpected and let Sound Remedy give you a glimpse of the inner workings of his mind.

Crossing genres once again, Zeds Dead and Omar LinX have released the video for “No Prayers” off their forthcoming mixtape entitled “Victor”. With a mellow and soulful hip/hop intro, the track soon turns to Omar LinX for a couple of heartfelt verses before Zeds Dead drops the slow and gritty bassline. Another collaboration featuring dubstep and hip/hop joining forcing but with a much crafted and tasteful production. Stay tuned on its release.
Swarms are a UK-based producer duo who do things a bit differently. Rather than focusing on the heaviest, nastiest sounds possible, these guys create rich soundscapes that transport the listener into their dreamlike world. This time around they have taken the ordinarily hyped up track “Go” from Diplo and turned down the intensity about 11 notches. If you are planning on taking a nap this afternoon or if you need to take a stress break then throw this track on, kick your feet up and relax – Swarms have got you covered.
