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.

TMBA – Obsessed (Our Time Remix) [TMN Premiere]

Obsessed (feat. Lynn Gvnn) (Our Time Remix)

It’s Monday and the coffee is brewing, the music is blasting, and the hangover is just now starting to fade away. The perfect way to cure any case of the post-weekend blues is to simply indulge yourself in some hyphy new tunes to prepare yourself for the week to come. This week isn’t like any other week, my friends, because it is officially the start of festival season. The TMN team is gearing up for weekend 1 of Coachella, which in my books, just means it’s about to be an epic weekend full of shenanigans. In lieu of this week’s festivities, we have the perfect track to describe every ninja’s feelings about Coachella, all thanks to the artists Our Time and TMBA.

TMBA just recently put out their original new dubstep tune, “Obsessed,” which left everyone obsessing over the replay button. With a slew of artists throwing out their renditions of this gorgeous track, we were recently sent a unique electro house spin on this song by Tulsa natives, Our Time. Right from the beginning, the track starts us off with a heavy kick and catchy beat that builds up into a soft, melodic intro for Lynn Gvnn to showcase her unique voice. Our Time placed a lot of emphasis on the vocals and dirty breakdowns in their remix for TMBA, in which they took an adorable (yet heavy) sounding song and transformed it into a nasty, hectic dance anthem that is  sure to make people lose their mind. Try not to obsess over this one, ninjas and have a happy Monday!

[ULTRA 2014 Schedule Recommendation] TMN’s Must See Guide to Ultra (Miami 3/28 – 3/30)


Ahh. The time is finally here. All winter long we’ve been angrily looking at the calendar, not-so-patiently awaiting the start of festival season here in the states. To kick things off in 2014, we’re obviously overwhelmingly excited for what Ultra 2014 is bringing to the table.

As you would guess, this year’s line up is stacked, as usual. There’s a veritable pantheon of EDM legends, coupled with some amazing up and coming artists as well. We traditionally like to do a full stream of everyone that’s going to be there, but this year we’re going to change it up. Instead of giving you a tiny sample of each artist who’s playing, we’re going to give you our recommendations, day by day.

Scheduling is going to be tricky, so make sure you set out a proper game plan. It might be hard to stick to after a few beverages, but take it from us – don’t miss out on seeing your favorite artist, or any of these suggestions below:

Chainsmokers – Stage 7

Picked by Bryn Carter & Clayton Warwick


TMN Staff Comment: Two handsome devils reigning from New York who can make ANY song the ultimate remix. Make sure to check out these two who will keep your feet moving and your mind spinning with their intense indie/electronic melodies.

M.I.A. – Live Stage

Picked by Eric Gossett

TMN Staff Comment: The ever-controversial M.I.A. is definitely a “don’t miss” performance at this year’s Ultra Music Festival. The singer just released her critically-acclaimed album Matangi last year and is currently being sued by the NFL for $15 million for her performance at the Super Bowl. So if that was what they (couldn’t) show at the Super Bowl, I can only imagine how wild her uncensored stage show must be.

12TH Planet – UMF Radio Stage

Picked by Clayton Warwick


TMN Staff Comment: Last year, I had the pleasure of introducing someone to trap, and did so by watching 12th Planet’s set on Sunday afternoon. This well respected, LA based producer will be throwing down a massive set full of filthy beats. If you want to get down and dirty, don’t miss this set.

Kill The Noise – UMF Radio Stage

Picked by Michael Serratore


TMN Staff Comment: There are plenty of players in the world of filthy bass, but no one does it quite like KTN. There’s an undeniable energy in everything he does, and that will only be taken to the next level amongst a crowd of frenzied fans

Chance the Rapper – Live Stage

Picked by Baseer Ahmad and Clayton Warwick


TMN Staff Comment: You say you’re going to Ultra to only listen to beats? Don’t limit yourself. A break in the bass will be welcomed, and who better to give you said break than Chi-Town native, Chance the Rapper?

Borgore talks about Aokifying America, Charity and the Booty Monster [TMN EXCLUSIVE]


There are few names in the EDM industry that equate to sheer, unadulterated fun. Steve Aoki is one of them, bringing an onslaught of crazy, on-stage antics wherever he goes. From champagne to cake, no stones are left unturned when it comes to putting on one hell of a show.

Over the past month, the Aokify America tour has been cruising from city to city, bringing it’s zany antics, larger than life beats and top notch talent to cities from coast to coast. One of the featured names on this bill is Israeli producer, Borgore. We had a chance to speak to this baron of bass when the tour stopped in at the Ogden Theater in Denver, Colorado. If you get one thing out of this interview, it’s this: do not fear the Booty Monster.

Borgore feat. Waka Flocka Flame & Paige
Wild Out (Club Mix)

TMN: I’m sitting down tonight to talk with the ever talented producer, Mr. Borgore himself. Thanks for taking the time to chat with us tonight. Let’s kick it off by talking about why you’re here in Denver, being on the Aokify America Tour. Steve was recently quoted in the Denver Westword saying, “I want to maximize fun. I want to break the fun meter. Have you guys succeeded in that so far?

Borgore: 100%. The line up has been very versatile, and it kills it every night. Waka and myself are playing almost every show, except for maybe one or two. We also have amazing openers like Deorro, which is probably one of the coolest DJs right now. We had Dirtyphonics, we had Felix Cartal. I bet I missed someone, but we destroy. Out of this world. Amazing.

TMN: You’ve been on tour with a lot of different acts in your career. How do the crowds on this tour compare to ones in the past?

Borgore: I think that the people who come to this show are very open minded to a lot of different genres. It’s just good times. You can explore whatever you want to do in your set and they’re down with it. It’s really good times.

TMN: Are they rowdier than most?

Borgore: Um. I mean, the only thing that is kind of difficult with 16 year olds is they cannot get stupid drunk. You know? So a lot of times you play like to older people…but at the same time, younger kids go stupid rowdy without getting drunk. The tour is pretty fucking rowdy though.

TMN: We have to guess that there are some tour shenanigans going on. Can you shine some light on any pranks or mischief that have happened so far?

Borgore: We’ve done some crazy shit like paintball, and we’re going to go snowboarding tomorrow and stuff like that. I think the main shenanigan is Steve (Aoki) waking me up every fucking morning, when I’m hungover as fuck and all I want to do is die in my bed. He wakes me up, “We’re going to go work out.” I have to work out with him, or I owe him $100 for charity. At the same time, if he doesn’t wake up to work out, he owes $100 to charity.

[Fresh] Flux Pavilion – Freeway EP


A new EP by one of our favorite bleached blonde producers from the UK?

Count me in Flux, count me in.

Yesterday, Flux Pavilion dropped his new EP ‘Freeway’, 5 tracks that all show just how diverse of an artist he truly is by the beats, the melodies and who he collaborates with to make this EP one for the books. Teaming up with Steve Aoki for ‘Steve French’ then pairing his intense beats with Dillon Francis’ light hearted electronic flow for ‘I’m The One’, Flux shows he is the man of the hour. Flux’s song ‘Gold Love’ with the vocals of miss Rosie Oddie is one of my favorites. Hard and intense electronic beats, what we have come to know and love from Flux, drives this song with the high pitched, unique vocals of Oddie. Then there is ‘Freeway’, a different sound for Flux, where he has decided to slow down his intensity and flow the electronic melodies from one measure to the next. The song tells the journey, a musical journey and an intimate journey to find oneself. Flux also changes it up with the last song on the EP ‘Mountains And Molehills’ featuring Turin Brakes. Taking on an almost rock sound mixed in with the right electronic twists, this song feels like something out of a video game.

Another grand EP from the man FP, keep rocking you dirty blonde UK man.

[Remix Obsession] Mo – XXX 88 Remixes

XXX 88 Remixes

I will openly admit, I’m obsessed with Mo’s voice.
This sexy Denmark native is taking over the music scene recently and for all the right reasons.
Recently, she put together a little three track EP of remixes of her song XXX 88. The first remix is done by Faustix and Imanos who take Mo’s song and add a bit of dirty to it. The tune is turned up a few notches with some trap melodies thrown in to give the song an addictive head tossing beat. Then there’s Joe Hertz’s remix, the complete opposite who takes the song and slows it down, way down. He focuses on Mo’s voice and adds in his own slow, electronic instrumentals to make the song seductive. Finally there is Oceaán’s remix, the sexiest of the three. I would put it under the baby making category for music. The beat is taken to an incredibly mellow rhythm with the vocals being sung by Mo but also taking on the sound of a man singing the song. All three remixes show the diversity that comes from Mo’s music and how different artists who hear her music can all put their own twist on her amazing sound.
