Empia
My Own

The Australian sound has really come to the fore in 2014, with a mob of talented artists delighting the world with bright upbeat jams, and enough chill electronica to populate an entire festival’s worth of playlists. Just don’t underestimate them when it comes to getting down and dirty, because as Sydney’s Empia will prove, they’re more than capable of unleashing an absolute melter. Like many of his fellow countrymen, the young producer has found a home in plenty of our past Chill Dojo editions, and the charming mix of vocal chants and woodblocks which prelude this track would have you believe this is another to add comfortably to the list. Well you’d be dead wrong, because this one was a trap all along. Behind those calming jungle sounds lies a monster, and an insanely nasty one at that. Don’t say we didn’t warn you…

[Electro Soul] Zak Waters – Pony

PONY

If you haven’t realized it by now, TMN seems to fancy all of what Zak Waters has up his soulful sleeves. We have been featuring his music in our Sunday Night Soul playlist for most of 2014 and decided that his music deserves more than just a Twitter mention.

A couple of weeks ago we premiered Zak’s  “Over You” redux of Breakbot’s “Baby I’m Yours”, to which which we continue to bump and grind to each and every week. We have come to the conclusion that no matter what Zak releases it’s going to make us feel some type of way, if you know what we mean. Well ninjas, we’ve got something for you today from the love-making music king, and yes, it will make you want to get down and dirty.

With his new EP set to release on the 17th, Zak decided to break the internet in the mean time with his cover of Ginuwine’s famous song, “Pony”. The only words that come to mind when we heard this song were “NSFW” because you do not want to be anywhere near the workplace while blasting this baby-maker tune (based on personal experience). Zak’s smooth, soulful voice accompanied by the tastefully provocative lyics have given us all the reason to call in sick to work today so we can stay behind closed doors for the remainder of the day. So as you get ready to press play, pour yourelf and a loved one a glass of bubbly, let the clothes inch their way to the floor, and saddle up for the weekend with this one because you won’t be leaving the house.

[House] Andrew Bayer – Bullet Catch

Bullet Catch

Andrew Bayer is at it again, and ohhh boy is he frisky! The traditional depth and progressive ambiance that Mr. Bayer portrays in his tracks is augmented this time around with some dirty electro bass and a sexy wobble. Despite the piano interim, which the producer states will exclude it from a classification of “banger”, I disagree. Bullet Catch has everything required to be a stand up summer track for 2014. A bit of esoteric distension that’ll make you cry, a little dab of some roll juice to enjoy a hand with blinking LEDs, and a drop to get a crowd jumping like they’re in Dadaland make this a tune that’s a memorable jump off to any respectable dance party. Enjoy!

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #81

chill dojo

There’s no better way to wind down the long weekend than lounging about with with a dose of chill music, and we just so happen to have a stack of quality tunes to share for playlist #81. If you caught our new Kygo post from earlier in the week, then it’s really no surprise to be seeing his name atop this list. Kygo + Benjamin Francis Leftwich is just the perfect combination to be happening in music right now, and we hope there’s plenty more of this to come. Thankfully he’s not the only artist to be dabbling in these sweet vocals, as we’ve got another Chill Dojo favorite in Manila Killa providing more summertime vibes with that same floating sensation crafted throughout. We’ve never pictured Norway as a tropical destination, but you could easily be fooled by the glorious sounds consistently pumped out by its artists. Bearson’s remix of “Savanna” certainly hits the sweet spot as far as this style goes, serving as your musical portal straight into the isles of the Caribbean. From there, we shift gear straight into the some future beats from Jonah Baseball. There’s not much out there we can tell you on this new name in the scene, but he’s got support from Lindsay Lowend, and his newest release ‘Louisville Slugger’ is straight fire, so by that token we’re firmly in his team as well. As far as other new names go, the music collective Moving Castle has just brought out a fresh compilation overflowing with insane future sounds, so be prepared for the next four tracks to wow your ears like you wouldn’t believe. Sydney producer UNO Stereo will continue that feeling with his bouncey remix of ‘Dreams’, not only delivering a killer instrumental but masterfully molding in the band’s vocals to his style. Add his name to your list of Australian artists to follow with close attention. Speaking of attention, ‘Latch’ remixes have certainly been a hot topic over the past week, and Maryland’s MisterMack has given us one of the best with his slick interpretation. Flowing through different styles and emotions, this version will capture your full attention and have your body grooving for an experience that is a natural human response to musical genius like this. We end this week’s write-up with one of the smoothest sounds to hit the blogosphere this week in the form of ‘Foolish’ from UK duo Blonde. Ryan Ashley serves up some stunning vocal work over some serious poolside vibes, making this one a certified jam to be played out across the warmer months.

This all comes together as the perfect pick-me-up to get you going again after the weekend’s festivities. As for us, the search for good music never stops. Peace out.

[TMN DOES MIAMI RIGHT] Ultra + WMC 2014 Review

1504307_10152156291872739_5015679694235573569_o

Welcome to my Ultra-world. It is a land filled with sun, sex, sounds, and sea. The energy here is relentless, the pace is fast. People come from around the globe to experience the narcotic pulse of bass that emanates throughout the city. Come with us as we voyage in to the depths of debauchery and dance, and experience the glory that is known as Miami Music Week.

Pool parties are a mainstay of the Winter Music Conference, so let our journey begin in South Beach at the Raleigh Hotel pool for the DIM MAK Miami Beach Party. Here we can observe the one and only Steve Aoki in his natural habitat. Aoki provides copious entertainment for all, and he is generous enough to even give some of his devoted following cake and champagne! Though very little of these accoutrements actually make it in to anyone’s mouths, it’s the thought that counts. Other notables to be taken from the environment are Deorro, The Chainsmokers, 3lau, Felix Cartel, and Autoerotique. Amidst the hard hitting, fist pumping, in-your-face beats that DIM MAK records is known for, we can’t help but to be pleased with the plethora of beauty and movement that surrounds us. A large pool waits patiently behind, framed in a soft blue hue and coaxing weary partiers towards it cool waters with the promise of buoyancy. As the party wanes, we trickle with the masses back on to Collins Avenue and become engulfed in an ocean of neon, skin, and cars that cost more than most families homes.

New Dim Mak Music!

Back across the bay and just a couple miles north of the Ultra Music Festival, we now travel to a chic and sensuous lounge nestled in the heart of Wynwood. The famed area is known for its walls; ever-changing murals blanket the buildings. The crackle and hiss of spray paint can be heard around every corner and an aroma of acrylic permeates the nostrils like a vandal’s potpourri. Be mindful of the razor wire on your right as we meander towards The Social Lubricant. TSL’s staff holds up to the lounge’s name, offering courteous and brisk service along with reasonable drink prices (for Miami). Absorb the deep house beats put on tonight by the likes of underground sensation Thugfucker. That’s right, Thugfucker. While the American and Icelandic combination of Greg Oreck and Holmar Filipsson could certainly play until 5am, the line up tonight will not require them to. Both of the boys are in excellent spirits this evening from the looks of it. Their connection with their crowd is palpable. Each twist and turn of their set seems to mean something, each bassline tickles the stapes in a profound way. Don’t forget about Thugfucker’s buddies either. Matt Tolfrey, Nick Curly, Francesca Lombardo, and many others are here as well to ensure auditory satisfaction. Are you hungry? There’s a sushi bar in the back corner to compliment your ethanol if you so choose…I would highly suggest it, we’ll be here awhile.

Thugfucker live

We’ve shown you South Beach and gone underground in Wynwood, so let’s venture now to what everybody has been waiting for; let’s go to Ultra Music Festival 2014! A cab is necessary because parking is the worst clusterfuck you’ve ever seen in your life. I am scheduled to interview Art Department, Paper Diamonds, and Vello Virkhaus prior to partaking in any of the festivities. You’ll notice that there, regrettably, is no press area within Ultra’s grounds…there IS, however, a mega yacht docked right next to the grounds that we can use. After delightful conversation coupled with a Krewella photo-op and a chance brush by with Zedd (he has sparkly eyes, pay no mind to my screaming “Zedd! You’re awesome!”), we tromp through the hidden workings back stage to make our way over to the Underground stage. Cue the sensory overload!

[Exclusive Interview] TMN Sits Down With option4, Keepers. and Need & Necessity at Snowball

Hello (Original Mix)
Lemme See (Original Mix) **FREE DOWNLOAD**

This past weekend at Snowball Music Festival, we were treated to a wonderful palate of eclectic artists, all in the heart of Denver Broncos territory at Sports Authority Field. From major acts like Busta Rhymes, Pretty Lights, Yeasayer, Twin Shadow, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Griz, Knife Party and MiMOSA to the amazingly well represented house tent with names including MK, J. Phlip, Graff, Justin Jay, Maxxi Soundsystem and The Juan Mclean; it was safe to say our tastes for all different genres of music were well satiated. We also had the chance to catch up with some of our absolute favorite up and coming house artists option4, as well as the duos of Keepers. and Need & Necessity round-table style in their home city to talk about their burgeoning record label Night Supply, their drinks of choice, spirit animals, Miley Cyrus and a whole lot more. And who better than these three entities to give us a little insight into the climate of dance music in their own state? Check out the full transcript below.

The Music Ninja (TMN): Alright, The Music Ninja here at Snowball Music Festival with option4, Keepers. and Need & Necessity. First things first, I know we can be a bit intimidating so how about a round of Fireball shots? [five minute pause from interview] Okay, let’s get the ball rolling!

TMN: Now, we’re obviously here in your guys’ back yard of Denver. A lot of people don’t realize this, but all of you have been throwing and curating proper house music events in the city for over three years as TheHundred and have built relationships with most every dance artist on the festival. With this year being so heavy on house music, what has it been like to see your collective work begin to take a bit of a hold through more mainstream outlets like a Snowball Music Festival? Let’s start with option4.

option4: Man it’s been awesome to see so many people that might not normally be into this style of music fully support and accept it. For example, last night MK was killer, J. Phlip was killer and all those people choosing to be in the house tent as opposed to some of the other stages. That was something that felt very tangible, very real. It was kind of a weird stage to begin with because nobody could really hear the music outside of the tent and it was a little bit tucked away, but that thing was still absolutely packed.  It seemed like there were a lot of people there for that style of music, so it was nice to see house music have a real footing at an American festival.

Read the rest of our interview with option4, Keepers. and Need & Necessity after the jump!
