Every week on the Chill Dojo is a celebration of music, but number 52 is a whole lot sweeter marking a year’s worth of playlists since it first began. It’s been a great journey so far covering a number of emerging artists doing creative things, as well as some of our favourite names who continue to produce and develop their amazing trademark styles. And if recent weeks have been any indication, things are only going to get better as time goes on.
If there was ever a song to celebrate this occasion, it’s this latest one from Australian producer Wave Racer, who takes the groovin original track ‘The Dofflin’ to the next level with his infectious sound. The artist is creating all kinds of buzz lately, and not just in his home country either, with a recent signing to Future Classic and massive coverage all over the blogosphere. Granted, the Chill Dojo has been caught napping in posting his music, but it’s definitely a case of better late than never here. A quick listen to any of the tracks featured below will be enough to know why he’s got plenty of people dancing, chilling, or even just smiling at how damn good he sounds. Switching things up now to some chill house and a man that needs no introduction in Joris Voorn. To the joy of many fans, ‘Ringo’ has finally had a recent release and it’s not hard to see what the anticipation was all about. Put simply, it’s just a beautiful song which has been crafted to perfection, progressing along with plenty of intricate details and magical moments. In much the same way, Germany’s Stimming delivers the same kind of sentiments to his remix of ‘Kids Play’, which definitely brings back fond memories of summers come and gone. And if we’re talking house, you just know we want to throw in some funky French flavour, and thankfully Edward Newgate has come up with the goods with a superb remix of FKJ. Keeping on trend we’ve also got the usual suspects in Ta-Ku and Kaytranada amongst the playlist, and we’ve even ended things off in our favourite with a little reggae number courtesy of Demouche. A perfect way to top off what’s been a great year of chill music.
For chill ninjas old and new, we hope you continue to enjoy these playlists and the exciting things to come. Peace out.
