New years often bring about declarations of resolutions that never come to pass, but one thing you can count on in 2015 is that the Chill Dojo will continue to share the music that will make you smile.
On that note, we’re kicking off this year’s editions with the ‘Bright Side’, a feelgood collaboration from French groups Mozambo and Basic Tape, featuring the catchy vocals from Julia Church. Whether it’s reflecting on a stellar 12 months just past, or gazing forward with a positive outlook, this jam has the perfect vibe to get you in the right space. More than that though, the funky jazz riff ensures this one has plenty of dance-ability to keep it on heavy rotation. In much the same way, ‘Movin On’ carries similar sentiments of positivity melded within an incredible groove courtesy of Twax. Released on the eclectic Bearded Man Recordings, it’s the perfect upbeat addition to your music addiction for 2015. Acoustic melodies and deep electronic vibes have always been a guilty pleasure for the Dojo, and French artist RÆVE has definitely reconfirmed that with ‘The Sweetest Sin’. The tropical tinge combines with the suggestive lyrics to make this a very heated affair, and one best enjoyed in the right company.
2014 highlighted a massive progression for TMN favorite Glastrophobie, so it’s fitting that this year began with a premiere of his latest remix of GEMOLOGY. He continues to impress with his unique arsenal of glorious melodies, all while retaining the elements that make the original so great. We were certainly blessed with a year full of amazing sounds, but right before things came to a close, Bondax unleashed this funky weapon to put the icing on the cake. The talents of this young duo needed no reaffirmation, but it’s definitely got us psyched for what’s in store for playlists ahead.
All in all, whatever 2015 brings, Dojo #115 will give you the sounds to take it all on with the right attitude. Peace out.
