[Deep] Dinnerdate – Want You EP


Munich’s Dinnerdate is rounding out a stellar year in the best way possible with his first official EP, Want You, hitting Beatport a few days ago. The title song sticks to his deep chilled roots, and highlights the progression in his signature sound throughout 2014. As has become custom with Simon, beautiful piano melodies accompany catchy vocal sampling for a truly addictive vibe that is easy to listen to, but hard to stop. It’s an immediate change-up with the second track ‘Leech’, as gritty bass paves the way for a club-friendly atmosphere. Far from post-midnight filler though, the creativity in the guitar sampling showcases a complexity in his music that is evidence of hours dedicated to serious studio refinement. We’re always excited to hear the results of this blood, sweat and tears, so go grab a copy on Beatport if you’re feeling it too.

Want You

The Chill Dojo #111

chill dojo

This is probably the most unconventional start to the Chill Dojo in any of its 110 editions past, but this creative take on the timeless Seinfeld theme is too good not to put front and center in kicking things off. Melbourne-based Abelard has crafted something truly unique here, bringing a smooth and funky interpretation to the theme song many hold dear to their hearts. Too often the value of remixes like this don’t extend too far beyond their novelty, but in this case ‘Seinwave’ offers both a melodic delight in its own right as well as a tasteful homage to the legendary 90′s series. Bravo.

It’s difficult to follow an act like that, but thankfully Brooklyn duo Chordashian have provided some smoothness which flows seamlessly onward into the playlist. The 100bpm format provides the perfect canvas for this bouncy version of Gambino’s ’3005′, complete with nu-disco vibes and vocal sampling driving the groove from start to finish. It’s all about the funk this week, and Touch Sensitive are dishing up our next serving of sweet sounds that will prove too hard to resist. It takes some proper imagination to implement acapella chops like these, but the results are an overwhelmingly feel-good tune that will wash out all the negative in your day and replace it with an unbreakable desire to dance. The jive continues (albeit a little less intense) thanks to the latest from Penthouse Penthouse, who switch on some jazzy chords and a spacey vibe for ‘Can’t See Love’. This one makes butter seem difficult to cut, and yet has more layers than we could possibly count. Sebastian Carter has been a consistent contributor to the Dojo in recent times, with clean mellow mixes that make for the perfect chillout atmosphere. His latest remix of ‘Jupiter Grayscale’ may be his most polished to date, with a subtle touch of tropical ideal for those long summer nights with friends.

The list of fresh sounds extends far longer than that though, so make sure to sample everything we’ve prepared. Peace out.

You may not know this incredible artist very much yet and that’s ok, one of our jobs is to help you to get to know him and his music better.

In 2013 he launched his first album ‘Clubbers Guide’ from Ministry of Sound which peaked at #1 on iTunes dance music charts.
The perfect artist to start this winter season off with a bang and some electronic melody madness, we are beyond excited to have this European phenomena take over the ninja website. Welcome Danny, we hope you are ready for an incredible month!

Dirty South
With You (Jai Wolf Remix)

Having a lousy day? Struggling to find motivation? This magical track will get you going like no other. NY-based producer Jai Wolf just released this Dirty South remix titled “With You”, and being that it’s different than his other work, it’s still refreshing and addicting. The epic synthy intro that eventually replaces the beat drop immediately catches our attention. The synthwaves are bold and catchy, and are the perfect addition to the new style of music Jai Wolf is swaying towards. The subtle vocals combined with a warm, welcoming vibe almost resemble the sound of Porter Robinson.

The talented producer definitely deserves more attention after this epic remix. Check him out on his soundcloud and grab a free download via his Facebook page here. We’re expecting big moves from Jai Wolf soon!
