When searching for music to add to the playlist each week, some would say there’s a point when a track becomes too dancey to be suitable for the Chill Dojo. Well we don’t care too much for rules, and potential candidates are judged by one criteria and one only, vibes.
Why the prelude? Because we kick things off this week with a tune that will have you moving as if you were still running off the buzz from Saturday night. Montreal’s Kaytranada remixes a house classic in ‘Lady’, adding an infectious groove that is funky beyond control. If that’s all a bit too much to handle on your Sunday, then our second track will tone things down with a beautiful downtempo remix of a Seven Lions hit courtesy of Washington producer, Lindsay Lowend. It’s been a few weeks since our last dose of that smooth Shook sound, but he’s back again with a slow jazzy piece of magic that’s all a part of his usual charm. Another classic receives a modern twist with German producer Vaguesh taking on a Grammy-winning 80’s hit, ‘Bette Davis Eyes’, adding some acoustic riffage and an extra oomph to the beat. Other goodies in this playlist include some helpings of chill trap, DnB from London’s Blu Mar Ten, and deep house vibes flowing from a couple of Bit Funk mixes. Something for everyone no doubt. Peace out.
