[Deep House] Cyril Hahn – Last ft. Joel Ford

Cyril Hahn
Last ft. Joel Ford

After a nearly three month hiatus, Cyril Hahn‘s newest single, “Last,” proves more than worth the wait. The highly regarded Vancouver-based producer teamed up with a relative newcomer in Brooklyn-based vocalist Joel Ford in creating his latest masterpiece. The end product of their collaboration is a lengthy single, running over five minutes, complete with all of the synth and bass one would expect from previous Cyril Hahn hits such as “Perfect Form“.

“Last” portrays the musical talents of Cyril Hahn, who has been able to build on a recipe that has provided him so much success, while also demonstrating his ability to constantly advance his signature brand of house music.

Cyril Hahn’s EP Begin is set to release soon via PMR Records.

[Deep House] Cyril Hahn – Open ft. Ryan Ashley

Open ft. Ryan Ashley

This weekend Canada’s Cyril Hahn will wrap up his five-city She’s Different tour, just in time to prepare for the big unveiling of Voices, his forthcoming EP. While the official release date has not yet been announced, not all hope is lost. Our day has been made with the news that Hahn has shared another single off the EP via SoundCloud.

A month ago we saw the release of “Slow” featuring Rochelle Jordan, and now we’re gifted with “Open” featuring Ryan Ashley. “Open” pulls from deep house influences, resulting in an expertly crafted track that is both complex and emotionally invoking. Hahn’s signature sound breathes fervor into “Open,” and we’re extremely pleased with the silky smooth single. “Open” will be featured on Voices, which will be out soon on PMR Records.

[House] Cyril Hahn & Javeon – Breaking

Cyril Hahn & Javeon

Canadian house producer Cyril Hahn has had perhaps the most unassuming rise in comparison to any other producer over the past few years. What began as a college hobby of pumping out remixes for his friends,  soon turned into blogosphere wildfire when his smooth and pitched down deep remix of Destiny’s Child registered over a million plays within months. Since that spark, the entire indie world over from pop-enthusiasts, rock aficionados and of course dance gurus have seemed to take a bit of a shine to Hahn’s accessible and polished productions. Coming off of a debut EP Perfect Form back in October on tastemaking electronic imprint PMR, it looks like we’ve caught the young Canuck in the midst of a musical stride so to speak with his newest original collaboration with the talented and lovely Javeon, “Breaking”. The tune itself functions a little bit closer to synth-pop territory than usual for Hahn, who is clearly influenced by the Bristolian upstart. “Breaking” molds itself on top of a looming, 80’s leaning MIDI hook, and constant pumping bass line- and of course, it just wouldn’t be right to have Cyril Hahn’s name on this one unless there was a silky stellar vocal track there to pull its listener along.

“Breaking” will be available as part of  PMR Records (part of the brains behind finding Jessie Ware and Disclosure) debut sampler 20 Square Feet in Action which has yet to receive an official release date. Stream it above.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #63

Not a week goes by when we’re not talking about the young French beatmaker stwo, but that really can’t be helped considering the consistent fire he produces on a regular basis. This time he works his magic with the sultry vocals of JMSN, and the result is an irresistable slow jam that you need to hear. Forget the wine and candles, next time you’re with that special someone, this is all you’ll need to set the mood right. And while we’re on the subject, let’s direct our attention back to this recent feature of Kygo’s take on ‘Sexual Healing’. By now you should be well aware of our love for the Norwegian’s tropical transformations, and it seems even this Marvin Gaye classic can be dancefloor-ready under his signature style. German duo Gamper & Dadoni are no strangers to a dancefloor hit either, and their smooth rework of Claptone’s ‘No Eyes’ is sure to set many alight all over the globe. The deep house groove together with that sexy sax is an infectious combination for sure, adding a freshness which has become the staple of this pair’s production. Wayward ensures the vibes keep flowing with a super catchy remix of ‘Run’, providing a warm spin on the emotional original courtesy of those stunning keys. There’s plenty more beats where that came from though, with Moods at his very best once again with another late night jam, and Pomo hitting us with a new original which will take over your body and induce uncontrollable groovin. And just in case you missed it, we end with a throwback to Dinner Date’s premiere on the site last week with his remix of Angus & Julia Stone. Even if you didn’t, it was always a sure-fire addition to the dojo and definitely worth hearing again.

That’s the playlist as we see it for another week. Enjoy it in any way you please. Peace out.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #50

Summer is certainly the season of music and this year has been very good to us indeed. Our recent Mega Summer Playlists are testament to that, not to mention the months of amazing chill music that have brought a whole variety of unique sounds to our ears. Even though the season is winding down now, as long as we have these vibes flowing through the speakers, the feelings of summer will never fade. And that’s exactly how it should be, all year round.

If you didn’t catch our earlier preview of the new single from RAC, this is your official message that it’s one not to be missed. Everything is perfectly on song with this chilled summer anthem, from the groovy chords to the fun lyrics just made to be sung along with friends. The whole track has a free-spirited feel that you wish could last forever. And when it comes to summer anthems, Bondax has quite a few to their name this year, with ‘Giving it All’ sure to be on everybody’s shortlist. Add in the funky bouncing style of French Kiwi Juice to that equation, and you have a certified winner. We also have to pay our respects to Kaytranada this season, for his work would have been part of many a summer festivity in plenty of cities all over. He’s currently embarking on a winter tour of Australia right now, but if these next two features are any indication, he’s sure to be heating things up and getting dancefloors bumping. Whether it’s on a sweet instrumental or on the remix, he always brings the fire. Now usually when it comes to females featuring on chill tracks, we’re praising the incredible vocals they bring to the song. It’s not often we get to speak about female producing talent, but Poland’s Chloe Martini is definitely one on our radar, and damn are we excited about what she brings to this mix. We really do hope this will be a common trend in these playlists in the near future. What has been a common occurence in recent weeks though is the work of DJ AA, who’s back again with a blend of French Kiwi Juice and The Fugees, which sound like the ingredients for the perfect summer cocktail. Well it’s a damn good mix and we’d certainly drink it all day.

Actually, a cocktail would go down pretty well with this playlist. We recommend mixing one up before you hit that play button. Peace out.
