[TMN Exclusive Premiere] Bogan Via – Gatsby

Tomorrow, Arizona’s electro pop duo Bogan Via will put out their Remix EP, featuring reworks of songs from their six-track EP Wait Up, which they put out back in October. Folks like Miniature Tigers, Geographer and Glass Theory take a stab at the originals, but there’s also another surprise on this new release: a previously unheard tune called “Gatsby”. Slinky, glittery and with just the right amount of polished bounce, it’s quite the added bonus and The Music Ninja is beyond excited to share it with you. Check it out below!

[Hip-Hop] T.I. – Wildside (Feat. A$AP Rocky) (Prod. No I.D.)

T.I. takes a walk on the wildside with his latest track, bringing A$AP Rocky along for the ride. From the title, one would imagine that this song would serve as another opportunity for T.I. to brag about his exploits in the drug game, but instead he uses this opportunity to provide more insight into his life and where he comes from. The “wild side” detailed in the song pertains more to an ugliness many of us will never know. T.I. explains much about his rough upbringing and how it’s led him to become the man he is today. Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head is quickly becoming one of T.I.’s most intimate albums to date, and definitely one that’s worth checking out when it drops tomorrow.

Jeremih – Fuck U All The Time (Dj Sliink Remix)

We heard the excellent, slow and sensual remix by Shlohmo back in October, but this “Fuck U All The Time” rework by Dj Sliink has got a much fiercer vibe to it. Once the track ramps up into full gear, there’s no stopping the New Jersey producer from getting his message across.

[Remix] Bruno Mars – Locked Out of Heaven (Major Lazer Remix)

Major Lazer completely flips this Bruno Mars single on its head, infusing it with a mellower vibe to truly take you to paradise. The island theme that accompanies most Major Lazer tracks actually feels appropriate here, despite the original song’s upbeat nature. It almost feels like the remix is able to take the desperation out of Bruno’s voice, and help him relax about that whole being locked out of heaven issue he’s dealing with. You can find this one on the deluxe edition of Bruno Mars’ latest album, Unorthodox Jukebox, out now.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #16

Sometimes humanity can shock us with news that shakes the very foundations of our belief in our fellow person. Times like these are difficult no doubt, and there’s not much that can be said that can make sense of it in any way. But it’s these moments where more than ever, we need a reminder that the world is still a beautiful place, and as much as there is potential for evil, there is so much more good happening everyday that goes unheard. So here’s to all that is good in life, and all those that work towards making the world a better place.

One such example of this beauty is a remix of The xx by a mysterious newcomer to the producing game, Whomi. Not much information exists about this artist, with only one other song on Souncloud which featured in our playlist two weeks ago. But if the vibes in these debut tracks are anything to go by, it’s a name that you will definitely see in dojos to come. Following this is another remix of The xx, courtesy of John Talabot and Pional, who morph the original into a hypnotic house track clocking in at over 8 minutes. The Chill Dojo has seen plenty of remixes of the UK group, but it’s no surprise given the style of their latest album ‘Coexist’, and its potential for mellow reworks. A name which would be far from expected in this playlist is California’s infectious beatmaker TJR, and with a remix of Queen no less! It’s definitely a quirky take on ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, but there is no doubting the chilled vibes it delivers. Revisiting a post from earlier in the week, it was impossible to look past another artist from the Golden State in Broke for Free. This is one of those mellow jams that allow you to lose yourself for a few minutes and just enjoy the sweetness your ears consume. If you’re a regular to our fine establishment, you’ll also find some names you’ve recently grown familiar with in Sizzlebird and WiSkim, who again gift us with some quality free tracks. And finally, who better to feature in our reggae track of the week than the new prince of Rasta, Snoop Lion, who when combined with the production mastery of Major Lazer, is a recipe for pure unfiltered relaxation.

Apologies for the delay on the dojo this week due to some technical hiccups. Hopefully we are still in time to start your week off right. Make it one where you take the initiative to spread the love where you can! Peace out (and emphasis on the peace).

[NEW] Ra Ra Riot – When I Dream

It’s just a little over a month before Ra Ra Riot drop their third LP, Beta Love. We heard its title track in November, a pop morsel that proved the band’s newfound synth pop path. Continuing in that direction is their latest offering “When I Dream”. Though still built atop electronic elements, it’s not as bubbly as the aforementioned song — this time the airy bounce is replaced by a simmering slice of soul. While the New York four-piece have adopted a new sound, the two songs they’ve released so far show promise in that, whatever route they take, the music is always quality material.

Ra Ra Riot’s Beta Love comes out January 22nd via Barsuk Records.
