This past week more than ever was a time to celebrate good music. While legends will never be replaced, 2016 has already revealed its fair share of new talent, one of which being the newly formed Chymes. The merging of Cameron Taylor and Kiersten Nyman, the Sydney electronic duo have announced their collaborative creativity with ‘Oracle’, a gorgeous tune that gently floats as if carried along by a zephyr. The delicate vocals caress the sparse atmosphere, filled only with light touches of metallic percussion which produces surprising power through its minimalism.
We’re picking up the pace with our next feature from another young talent to add to our watch-list. Italian producer FlyBoy makes his Chill Dojo debut with a smooth little number in ‘Maze’, glimmering with a polished groove that is hard to resist. As its title would suggest, it’s a track that’s certainly easy to get lost in, but we’re not keen on finding our way out of its deep sound anytime soon. We’re in that dancing mood now, so it’s the perfect time to move right into the latest remix from Sydney producer Cabu. The slow funk of ‘Stay Lost’ is dialed up a notch, infused with a silky bassline that combines the chill vibe of the original with an undeniable urge to cut loose and get your body moving.
Just as soon as we can turn on the party feeling, we can flip things in the completely opposite direction with Tim Legend’s ‘call me’. The South Carolinian producer lays down a lush future track that is just perfect for those moments of pure relaxation. Whether it’s during a glorious day on the beach, or a time when you don’t want to even leave your bed, this dose of fresh melodic bliss will make that picture complete.
As much as we mourn the passing of icons, we take comfort in knowing the inspiration for creating good music is alive now more than ever. Peace out.
Simone (Cabu Remix)’
