Gramatik – Bluestep

Leave it to Gramatik to seamlessly create a new subgenre. Gramatik, as we have described before, has had funk, soul, blues and jazz running through his veins since he was a toddler, and while that alone doesn’t give him the authority to on all these genres, his music clearly does. Bluestep is a complex yet simply layered experimentation merging two complete opposite genres into one seamless sound. There are no limits to what Gramatik cannot mix together and this is just another example of his brilliance.

[Valentine's Playlist] The Love Trap

Happy Valentine’s Day Ninjas. In the spirit of the season we’ve put together a playlist of some of the best romantic trap music we could find. Much like Dubstep, Trap as a genre already has more sub-genres than you can think of. One of these sub-genres that has been making some waves is Love Trap. This playlist is full of names you might already be familiar with like eSenTRIK and Hucci, while others are names you should definitely familiarize yourself with like Kastle and Kaytradana. The first half of the playlist moves through some trill, lyricly infused romance before the second half gets jazzy, using saxophones over the trap or juke beats.

Whether you’re spending this Valentine’s Day curled up with your sweetheart on a bear skin rug in front of a roaring fire sipping wine or drinking a whole bottle of vodka and eating a box of chocolate by yourself, this list of tunes are sure to get the romantic vibes going.   From all of us here at The Music Ninja, Happy Valentines Day. We Love You!

[Hip-Hop] J. Cole – Power Trip (ft. Miguel)

Shortly after dropping an unexpected free projectJ. Cole gives us the first single from his long awaited sophomore album, Born Sinner. On “Power Trip,” Cole enlists recent Grammy winner, Miguel, for an appropriately-timed love song. While plenty of emcees touch on romance in their raps, Cole has a way of capturing certain intricacies and complexities within relationships that few can articulate quite as effectively. Miguel fits in perfectly over the instrumental providing a dope interlude of sorts. Stream this dope single below and look out for Born Sinner, due later this year.
