[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #79

chill dojo

Dojo number 79 is absolutely bursting at the seams with amazing music, and though they are all worthy of kind words, we can’t let time spent reading take away from that which could be used to discover it for yourselves. It also doesn’t help that this Naughty Boy bootleg from Jarreau Vandal has left us speechless within a few brief moments of listening. Smooth is one word that comes to mind…many times over. So, so smooth. Between the jazzy melody and sultry vocal edit, this has had some serious soul injected into its waveforms. If that hasn’t already brought a smile to your face, then this next one will have you grinning from ear to ear. Showing that age is no barrier, 16 year old Norwegian talent WRLD has sprung out of nowhere to stake his claim in the musical world of future bass. With a sound immediately recognizable to that of Wave Racer, your ears will have no trouble soaking this one right up. You’d do well to keep a close eye on this kid. Something that did escape our gaze before now is Druid Cloak’s super fun take on ‘Rice Rain’. Cashmere Cat material always makes for very interesting results, and this edit is up there as one of the best when it comes to great vibes and pure easy listening. The vocals of Patrick Baker are certainly something that evoke the same sentiment, so whenever a remix surfaces you best believe we’re quick on the draw. One mix that deserves your attention comes from aspiring producer Carnizzy, who has layered his version with a dreamy ambience and slick beat that suit the style of the original to a tee. To continue this trend of astounding young newcomers, 19 year old Canadian Elkoe announces his inception with tropical fanfare. The influences of Kygo and Thomas Jack are instantly identifiable here, and it seems a lot of the world took notice, because this Passenger remix has already seen his name sit atop the Hypem charts within a matter of days. That definitely won’t be a one-off occurrence either. And speak of the devil, Thomas Jack also gifted us with a more summertime glory overflowing with good feelings. The combination of his signature sound with the folk stylings of Benjamin Francis Leftwich has been a proven success in past, so this take on ‘Snowship’ only continues to build on this winning formula. Once you start with the summer sounds, it’s really hard to stop, so it’s lucky that Robotaki is feeling these same urges and has made very good use of these Miami Horror stems. This word gets thrown around in just about every write-up at least once, but this is the track is our honorary jam for the week. Face it, you’re already singing along aren’t you? Great songs inspire great covers, and this piece of disco magic from killer French duo J-Art and Madan is an absolute gem. Paola Bennet has done a stellar job with ‘Pompeii’, and together with the production work from these two, the results are mesmerizing. The list of stunning music goes much further than this though, with new tunes from Slumberjack, Just A Gent, Lazerdisk, CRNKN and Empia. This would be a far greater wall of text if we gave every one of them the feature they deserve.

What we can give them though is plenty of plays, and that’s something we strongly advise with this list. Peace out.

[TMN Resident Artist for April] Elephante

Elephante_183
The Chainsmokers
#SELFIE (Elephante Remix)

April showers bring May flowers is a very true statement. Also, the beginning of April brings another Resident Artist to TMN and we had to wait until the 2nd of the month just to let you all know we weren’t fooling with this new artist.

Elephante, born Tim Wu, was born in Ann Arbor Michigan and started his music career at a young age being classically trained in piano, guitar, and exploring in both singing and song-writing. Inspired by the sounds of psychedelic rock like Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton and modern singer-songwriters John Mayer and Damien Rice, Elephante wrote and performed blues influenced acoustic pop songs throughout high school and college. His tastes began to shift towards electronic music in his late teens where he was influenced by “the idea that EDM was more than just drum loops, that you could create all these crazy sounds to make songs, not just a beat.” Since graduating from Harvard in 2011, Elephante has been honing his craft as a producer and DJ working to fuse big room melodic house with influences from pop, electro, and trap.

Elephante released his first EP in November 2013 titled ‘Pretty Lights’ which received high acclaim from the music world. He also has found quite a niche in making remixes of such artists as Kaskade, Katy Perry, Zedd, and Lorde.

That’s just a little insight into the man behind the music but get ready for a month full of everything Elephante, including his recently released remix of the Chainsmokers ‘Selfie’.

[Indie Dance/Nu-Disco] Miami Horror – Real Slow (Tropicool Remix)

Miami Horror
Real Slow (Tropicool Remix)

LA based house and disco slanger Tropicool, who is known primarily for his impressive output of eclectic mixtapes, has dipped his toes into the remix pond, much to our delight, authoring quite the groovy club edit of Miami Horror’s dance-poppy single “Real Slow”. A pulsing bass line fuels Tropicool’s deep disco take on the track while the tune’s original vocals spring along quite harmoniously over a glossy dose of synth work, and a funk inspired chord progression. We were immediately hooked into Tropicool’s huge slinky groove, and for our house, dance and club crowd we think you’ll have a tough time avoiding the same fate. This one can be snagged for free as a digital copy over on his official Facebook so do yourself a solid and snag one; and with the man playing Snowball Music Festival this weekend in Denver , we’ll soon hopefully be hearing it rinsed live amongst a sweaty sea of festival dancers.

[Love Trap] Just A Gent – Fortaque

Fortaque
Just a Gent

I have yet to sleep and my mind has decided to drift off into a delusional state of nostalgia. Who doesn’t love over-analyzing that one time you brought up pornography in your third grade class? I guess it’s times like these where the only way to put a stop to the madness is to put on some ambient tunes and vibe out the rest of the day. Fortunately, Just A Gent just released this original new track, “Fortaque” and solved every existential crisis I have ever endured.

At first, Just A Gent sets us up with a melodic piano intro that then transitions into an orchestrated composition full of mesmerizing synths, trippy kicks, and a violin that would even make Beethoven shed a tear. The tranquil flow of this song will lift anyone’s spirits to a euphoric level so make sure to grab a box of tissues because this one is going to make you cry.

N.A.S.A. Official
Hide (Tropkillaz Remix) Feat. Childish Gambino & Aynzli Jones

It’s always a great day when you get to hear a new verse from Childish Gambino. Well consider yourself lucky, as the man formerly known as Troy Barnes joins Aynzli Jones on the bass heavy Tropkilaz remix of N.A.S.A.‘s “Hide.” While Bino isn’t about to set the world on fire with this particular set of bars, he fits in perfectly over the screeching synths and thundering 808′s of the festival ready anthem. Check out the fantastic single above, and be prepared to hear this plenty of times over the upcoming months.
