After his last album, James Blake has stayed relatively quiet during summer. But we are very excited to present to you all his brand new track titled “200 Press”, because according to Mr. Blake, “only 200 are going to be pressed up”.
James Blake released this track during a radio residency session with BBC Radio 1. If you’re a James Blake fan, you probably already know about his exquisite skill set of using loops. Like many of his other songs, he takes this vocal sample and builds it up with unique beats and his occasional vocals. This song is based on this sample that goes “Gather ’round the beat like campfire…”, and with his quirky input into the beat, it turns into this creepy, mysterious and futuristic tune. It’s almost like he’s building a snowman from scratch, but it turns out to be looking like a scarecrow (excuse the excessive imagination).
This song could be a good preview to whatever Sir James got in store for us. Needless to say, we really like where he is going with his music.
Summer might be winding down, but it ain’t over yet. There’s still plenty of daytime hours and warm weather to soak in. Don’t let it go to waste. Just like you wouldn’t let an Indie Dojo go to waste. Someones gotta play it.
Building up a music library can be an a crazy, unpredictable hobby. Some searches bring you loads of songs that spiral you into the golden spins of the interwebs and others….tumbleweeds. Just tumbleweeds. It’s a roller-coaster of emotions. We know. So if the unpredictability is just too much to handle (Trust us.We feel your pain), let the Indie Dojo be your guide. We’ll travel the ends of the earth for you.

Took The Floor Out
Tropic of Pisces
Our Man in Berlin
We decided to turn down for relaxation last night because sometimes we like to sit at home by ourselves on a Saturday night with nothing but a glass of wine, a laptop, and music to vibe out to. We all know what happens when you open up a fresh SoundCloud tab and start going through your feed – scroll, scroll, OH OK THIS IS NICE, scroll, scroll, etc. When you follow people who just repost everything that sounds way too neat (guilty), you begin to wonder where the secret stash is hidden. Well ninjas, after hours upon hours of getting lost in an inception of beats, we found something that truly resonated well with us thanks to beat master, aywy. (short for Abstract Youth).
The Sydney producer (and Co-Founder of Flow-Fi) gives us an entirely new reason to fall more in love with the Aussies than we already are. Last night (or this morning their time), the beat doctor pumped some life into our lackluster feed with his latest 2 minute and 32 second banger, “Murder”. With its killer drum patterns, a bloody beat progression, and a haunting sub, “Murder” makes you feel as if you are literally about to be sent to your demise via sound frequencies. Prepare for some anxiety with this one because shit is about to get real.
Heavenly Father (Modus Coco Remix)
Everyone and their mother has remixed Bon Iver to the point where it’s almost unappealing. We can give you ten “Skinny Love” remixes off the top of our heads as we write this. Justin Vernon’s genius is well recognized throughout the world, especially in the music community, so it is very rare to find a tribute that stands out from the rest of the pack. However, Modus Coco continues his sensational debut as a solo artist as he puts his gorgeously enchanting spin on “Heavenly Father”, Vernon’s latest and greatest single. Coco, formerly of Shapes of Light fame, has given us a couple originals and a Sufjan Stevens remix, however this might be his best work yet. He breathes new life into the composition with new melodies and distorting Vernon’s voice to an almost ethereal level. We are absolutely in love with this piece and we hope you are as well!
We all need some sort of support system in our life. Whether it be lovers, friends, extracurricular activities, anything that helps us get through a hard day. For some of us, it’s music. We get home, wrap our ears in a blanket of our favorite tunes, and fall back into the arms of a magical swirl of sounds. If that sounds like something you can relate to, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve knit a wonderful little blanket full of love and support just for you.
