After news that “Bound 2″ was going to be the next single from Yeezus, Kanye West stopped by Ellen to debut the latest visual for his infectious track. The scenic Nick Knight directed clip includes beautiful imagery of mountains, wild horses, mystical forests, and West driving a motorcycle as his ‘ride or die’ fiancé accompanies him. Those that didn’t get a chance to watch Kim Kardashian‘s home vid get the added bonus of a topless future Mrs. West too.
The visual comes across a little like a corny proclamation of how much these two are in love and not as artistic as Ye probably intended. The motorcycle riding is a little cliché and the novelty of the topless Kim shots, although nice, are played out at this point. Considering that these two already have a baby and are engaged, we get that they are in love. One thing that didn’t make sense was the missing Charlie Wilson cameo. Take a look at the video below and be sure to cop Yeezus, available now.
Kanye West is currently still on tour with Kendrick Lamar and special guests A Tribe Called Quest.
It seems like just yesterday we were sitting inside a Denver pizza joint with Carousel. After speaking with this Berklee College of Music product, we watched as they entertained what was a rather scarce crowd. We can assure you that the talent level far demanded a much larger crowd than what was there that evening.
Since then, we’ve had the pleasure of watching Kevin and Jackson perform, seeing their crowds continually grow. With their synth heavy, infectious pop, these two keep capturing the hearts of listeners world wide.
Today, we’d like to ask you to through on your white wash jeans, tropical button up and Ray Bans, and get ready for a slice of 80’s pop. Staying true to form, these fellas have once again crafted something overwhelmingly catching, providing us with dance inducing rhythms, a wicked guitar solo and Jackson’s soft sung golden vocals, telling tales of brooding eyed romance.
There’s no denying the intense talent of Active Child. Through the brain of Patrick Grossi, we’re able to be transported to an entirely different world with his musical imagination.
This act is definitely on our live show bucket list, which is why we’re overwhelmingly excited to head to the Larimer Lounge in Denver this Thursday to check it out. We’ve had Rapor on repeat, getting ready to embark on this other worldly journey, and now we’re ready to give you a chance to win two tickets to the show.
Entering is beyond easy. Just fill out the form below, and we’ll contact you via email. There are a few rules, of course:
– You must be 18 to enter.
– You are responsible for transportation.
– You must bring a valid form of ID to pick up your tickets at the door.
– You must shout that you love “The Music Ninja” from atop a mountain. We will settle for nothing less.
Good luck, ninjas! Contest ends Wednesday at 5pm ET.
There’s nothing quite like a really well composed electronica track that has the ability of transporting you to another place. Is it the calming strings laid over slow, repetitious beats? Is it the lack of lyrics that allows our mind to wander? Whatever it is, we’re all about it.
Flirting with associations like Emancipator, Moby and Little People, Torontonian producer Sam Willows (aka Avenue) has crafted a sound that’s musically engaging, welcoming you in with each siren like synth. With very little out there about this up and coming Canadian, we can assure you that as much time and effort goes into making his music as Rob Ford’s plans to get wildly turnt up.
Political jokes aside, this is really the first we’ve heard of this act, but we’re already intrigued. We can’t wait to see what else he has on deck.

All Of Me (Dinner Date Remix)
Germany’s Simon Hoppe, better known as Dinner Date, has a knack for remixing folksy tunes and transforming them into the perfect ingredient for any deep house set. He caught our attention before with his stunning take on DAWA’s ‘Roll the Dice’, and now he’s back to bring his signature style to Angus & Julia Stone. It’s a special skill to give an element of danceability to a song while still retaining all the emotion that oozes from the original, but it’s a graceful art that this producer certainly has down pat. The atmosphere crafted into this remix is mesmerising, and the ebb and flow of percussion and acoustics all breathe in harmony with the beautiful vocals. Big thanks to Simon for giving us the chance to premiere this on TMN, and we can’t wait to hear what he will bring his magic touch to next.
Sometimes shit just doesn’t go your way and sometimes there is nothing you can do about. Just remember, no matter how bad it get’s, Ninjas don’t cry over spilled milk. They listen to awesome playlists…

The Cool Of Your Temple
Bombay Bicycle Club
We’ve always been a huge fan of Bombay Bicycle Club. This London based four piece is more than just indie rock, infusing gorgeously catchy instrumentation with Steadman’s ethereal vocals.
With their latest release, “Carry Me”, we find a very drum centric tune features rumbling snare and tom hits, coupled with delightfully boisterous strings and fluttering guitar notes.This tune is quite far from traditional, which is what we’ve come to expect from BBC. While they have so many indie rock qualities that we find ourselves becoming familiar with, they love to push the envelope when it comes to their instrumentation and song structure. On top of the impressiveness of this tune, we’re also provided an awe inspiring interactive video. Click here to give it a try.
