Thank heavens, the weekend is finally over. Friday is here and it’s time to unwind, or if this is more your style, party! Whichever method you choose for your weekend activities, we’ve got some high quality tunes for you. Every single song here, as usual, are available for free, so if you’re still into getting records for yourself instead of simply streaming, you can grab the ones you want. This week we kick things off with yet another hot one from MEMBA & TITUS, then meet up with acts like Velvo, Hi Five, Dusty Bits, DISKORD, Jackal and many more. We have thirteen singles for you, as well as a special mix from our friend PatrickReza just to give you some extra tunes to enjoy. Most importantly however, is to make sure you #danceirresponsibly.
There’s never a shortage of shows in Denver. Between Beta Nightclub, Red Rocks, and the dozens of other top-notch live music venues across the front range, we’re seemingly scurrying out to shows every other night of the week. Or, at least, we know we are.

Get ready for some good vibes from Amsterdam’s own Palm Trees. Not only do you get to hear the new single “You Were The One,” but you get to hear it first in the dojo. In this premiere you get a Summer-stricken poppy house record that is going to stick in your mind and live for the next several days, if not longer.
Pop has managed to invade so many electronic genres lately, but with “You Were The One” it feels like a natural combination. Palm Trees provides an introduction that feels 100% organic and only by surprise do we get lifted into an electronic setting with soft grooves that still are centered around an acoustic sound. It’s a cool mix of several styles and sounds melded into one song that we’ve been hype on ever since it slid into the dojo. Enjoy a first listen to “You Were The One” today!
France’s own Douchka dropped an emotional single on March 31st called “Call You Mine” with Canadian singer Lia. Released through Nowadays Records, this single of love and longing is one that may just bring a tear to your eyes. It shares point of view that a lot of us have found ourselves in sometime in the past, or even now. Let the feels rain.
“Call You Mine” sounds like it’s going to be a poppy, upbeat song about a love story. Instead, it flips things with a tone that’s much less A-okay, but the song itself is A+ dope. Douchka perfectly embodies the emotion that the lyrics convey. Lia’s performance on this song oozes with raw feelings that, if the instrumental didn’t do it already, will put you over the edge. Catch a copy of this single on digital stores or add it to your Spotify playlist. Whatever you choose to do, enjoy.
Every time I turn around another dope artist is popping their head out of Australia. Wilsonn is the most recent artist welcomed to the dojo, alongside his single “Thankful.” Fans of soul will be head over heals for this creator whose touching sound is more than a simple listening experience.
“Thankful” really makes you feel just that, thankful. It’s an intimate single with powerful lyrics and soundscapes that provide a figurative hug of warmth that you can’t resist. Wilsonn’s vocal is one that will stay in our hearts and minds for quite a long time to come. Although it’s Summer and the “jams” are being brought out like there’s no tomorrow, it’s nice to hear something soothing like this one. Take some time, appreciate “Thankful” and do the same for those things you hold dear around you.
At The Music Ninja, we can guarantee our listeners that we provide the best and freshest music in all genres. Whether you’re looking to vibe with some indie, bump to hip hop, sing in the shower to a new pop song, or party hard to dance music, we have your back.
In this case, we’re providing you with a tune to rage to. Why? Because it’s Thursday and we’re ready to bust out our best moves on the dance floor. With that said, we want to introduce you to Cazztek and Tony Romeras‘ latest creation, “Make You Drop.” The track title says it all as this one will assuredly make you drop just as hard, if not more, than it’s speaker-blowing bass. Take a listen; you have our word that you won’t have to look any further for your Thursday night anthem.
France to Florida producer EGZOD didn’t just drop one single, he dropped two. The first came through No Copyright Sounds for free, while the second through our friends at Uprise Music as a free download as well. Both reside in the future bass arena, but each have their own feel that’s different from the other.
We’ll take a look at “Paper Crowns” first, a pop-infused record that features the vocalist Leo The Kind. Both artists work together to create something that is memorable and fresh. With “Celestial” the sound shifts to a more forwardly uplifting vibe that has a bigger vibe to it. It feels celestial, as though the experience it gives is all around you. Like we said before, both songs were released for free, but if you feel like showing your support to this talented producer, go on to a digital store and buy copies.
