[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #28

Whether you need a reason to smile or are just looking to put the icing on a great week gone by, this edition of the Chill Dojo is sure to do just that. We’re kicking things off with plenty of bright, happy tunes so that feel-good sensation is flowing fresh through your speakers.

Norweigian disco duo Lemâitre released their much anticipated Relativity 3 EP this week and the final track ‘Cut To Black’ is an absolute gem. Gorgeous chords, a relaxing beat and poppy vocals come together to make this a sweet delight, the definite highlight for this playlist and the perfect way to start the mood off right. And while we’re feeling that disco vibe, what better way to continue than with this groovy dancefloor-ready take on ‘Suit & Tie’ from Aeroplane, made only the way Europeans know how. JT’s vocals have never sounded so good on the top of this mix which is just too damn fun. Let’s throw in some tropical elements now with none other than Goldroom and his latest single ‘Only You Can Show Me’ which is everything you’ve come to expect from the producer that can make the coldest of days feel like summer. And speaking of summer, if you somehow slept on our feature of Ryan Hemsworth’s masterful rework of the Lana Del Ray hit, we’ve added it in the mix as one of this week’s best chill tracks. It’s always amazing to hear how well-known songs can be transformed with a bit of mellow treatment, and that is definitely the case when it comes to UK beatmaker Handbook’s downtempo trap interpretation of ‘I Could Be the One’ which will have those vocals stuck in your head for days.

As always, the playlist will span through some chillstep and plenty of relaxing beats so kick back and enjoy the selection. You’re sure to crack a smile many times over. Peace out.

[Beautiful] Port St. Willow – Soft Light Rush (ii)

Port St. Willow - Soft Light Rush II
Port St. Willow
Soft Light Rush (ii)

Nick Principe, aka Port St. Willow, has released a six-minute sonic and experimental masterpiece, with welcomed flourishes of folk, rock and even electronica. Led by his astonishingly delicate falsetto, “Soft Light Rush (ii)” is a true world of sound throughout, various instruments poking, prodding, and making brief appearances here and there: somber brass tones, a few lonely guitar strums, tingling xylophone. There are many elements at play, but the track is never too busy or crowded; in fact, it does an excellent job of having all these elements interact with great balance, always leaving enough space for each instrument to breathe in, exhale and shine during each of their select moments. Even when the tension starts to grow towards the 3:00 minute mark, the sounds somehow clash together harmoniously, and the track feels as though it’s finally woken up from a long, dream-filled slumber.

Wildlife Control
Ages Places

If you’ve been following the site (which we assume you most certainly have) you know that we’re huge fans of Wildlife Control. This brotherly duo hailing out of Brooklyn and San Fran first grabbed our ears and hearts with tracks like “Analog or Digital” and “People Change.” They’re affection for whisky, sriracha, good music, and being genuinely good people has solidified their spot in TMN’s favorite artists for years to come.

Today we’re happy to bring you their new single, “Ages Places.” This driving melodic track features some crunchy guitar riffs, repetitious piano, and a downright dancy tempo. As with all their tracks, they blur the lines between electro pop, indie rock and jazz. And, as usual, this release is impressive, catchy and will get maintain a spot in our playlist for some time. Make sure to download this track, and if you’re heading to SXSW, catch Wildlife Control at any of these shows:

Friday March 15 – midnight: Official Showcase presented by CD Baby
Wednesday March 13 – 6:30pm: SoundCloud & Tumblr Creator Clubhouse
Friday March 15 – 2:40pm: BPM / SDR 4th Annual SX Party
Saturday March 16 – 3pm: House of Creatives Filming presented by No Shame

[NEW] James Blake – Digital Lion

james-blake-digital-lion1

Back again with yet another new track this week is the British singer/producer James Blake. His newest single off his upcoming 1-800 Dinosaurs‘ Overgrown album is an airy and spacey tune that is almost multiple songs in one. Beginning with an atmospheric beat and reverberating vocals, Blake switches up the beat about a minute in to a melodic vibe and switching again by adding some heavier drum rips. Keeping the same echoing and haunting vocals that is signature to Blake’s style, this is a floating track that is quite the chill listen.

She & Him – Never Wanted Your Love

SheAndHimVolume3

Guess who’s back? The sweet indie/folk pop duo She & Him! And they’ve even got a brand new album, Volume 3, out May 7th on Merge Records. The two artists, on their own, do fairly different things — there’s the smokey singer-songwriter M. Ward and the cheery, oddball actress Zooey Deschanel — but together, the pair does pleasant and bouncy, pseudo-sad, retro-sounding music. A prime example is this new cut, “Never Wanted Your Love”: its title looks serious on paper, but hit play and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a reason to frown.
