[TMN Song Premiere] The Last Royals – Friday Night (Tribe of Zebras Remix)

It’s rare for a track to sound spot-on when peered at through the lens of different genres, so when we got wind of this brand-spanking new rework we just knew we had to give it not only kudos, but a premiere slot on The Music Ninja. The song in question is “Friday Night” by Brooklyn indie pop outfit The Last Royals. Made up of Eric James and Mason Ingram, the duo pull out all the stops on this ringing, infectious single — so much so that one would think it could only stand alone as an indie tune. But here, LA’s Tribe of Zebras prove us wrong. The producer/DJ team remix the bouncy “Friday Night” into a filthy, growling trap anthem. The original version’s shine gets replaced with some undeniably excellent grime. Check it out below.

Last Lynx – Killing Switch (Sound Remedy Remix)

The beautifully crafted sounds of Sound Remedy are back. “Killing Switch” is another reason why 2012 was so great. Its laid back and relaxed vocals echoed calm and summer days of jazzy melodies by Stockholm indie band Last Lynx. While the original pulled many influences including both modern electro pop and 60’s organic pop, Sound Remedy’s rendition does much of the same but substituting it with elements of dubstep and trap.

This remix is all about bright and colorful sounds, dynamic bridges and experimentation, something Sound Remedy knows to well. The trap tease at the very end is just another sign of the maturity from this Los Angeles producer.

[Indie Rock] Shout Out Louds–Walking In Your Footsteps

Nearly a month ago, us ninjas caught wind of Shout Out Louds‘ newest album-to-be, Optica, when we heard the catchy single, “Blue Ice.” Just as we are writhing from the prospect of waiting until late February — when the Swedish synth-pop group plans to release Optica — Shout Out Louds hits us with another musical appetizer. Like “Blue Ice,” “Walking In Your Footsteps” is another great example of the ode to ’80s electro-pop that is the Shout Out Louds’ sound, but this one has a unique contemporary flair. It’s a catchy little number with danceability to boot.

Walking in your footsteps

Get your copy of Optica from the Shout Out Louds sometime towards the end of February via Merge Records.

[Trap] TNGHT – R U Ready

Rumor has it that TNGHT uploaded this song to their Soundcloud a couple weeks ago, then Kanye West bought it from them and used it in a Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. And what a surprise, it is yet another high octane Trap banger from Hudson Mohawke and Lunice. Featuring some massive horns that resemble those from their hit track “Higher Ground”. Cheers.

[NEW] Flying Lotus – Such a Square


Flying Lotus reunites with Adam “Lilfuchs” Fuchs–the animator who brought Captain Murphy to life–to introduce Moog’s Sup Phatty synthesizer to the world. They could not have plucked a better pair to showcase the new instrument’s capabilities, as FlyLo’s trippy, eccentric beats are deeply complemented by the sensory overload created through Fuchs’  euphoric visuals. After a stellar 2012, Lotus is showing no signs of fatigue. Let’s just hope we get some more material from him (either as Lotus or Murphy) now that he has this brand new toy to play with.
