Finally, the great milestone has arrived with instalment #14 of The Chill Dojo. What, 14 isn’t a milestone number you say? Well there needs to be some excuse for this super-sized edition of 20 tracks, other than the fact that it’s been an awesome week for chill music. Since December has finally rolled around once again, we’ll call it getting into the festive spirit. This time of the year is usually the most stressful with everything going on, so the more calming tunes we can provide the better.
And there’s no better person to turn to for a gentle dose of repose than Goldroom, who this week released a new single capturing a moment of summer paradise like only he knows how. Everything about this song is classic Goldroom, with beautiful melodies, perfect flow and entrancing female vocals. What more needs to be said? Another dojo favorite returns this week in Satin Jackets, releasing an older gem for free that is just so easy to vibe to. The sound here is incredibly versatile, suitable for long drives, dancefloor groovin’ or a classy cafe atmosphere. We first debuted some of Sizzlebird’s production a few weeks back, and told you he would be a recurring name in playlists to come. True to our word and his amazing talent he is back with another gorgeous ambient treat to fall in love with. UK group Rudimental have been blowing up since the release of ‘Not Giving In’, and in celebration gave away their collaboration with US rapper Angel Haze. You won’t typically see much hip hop in the chill dojo as it’s well covered in other areas of the site, but the production is at the forefront of this track and is so tight that it was too good to pass up. Other names to watch in this playlist include Atlantic Connection, who brings some chill dnb and downtempo goodness, as well as three servings of funk courtesy of the latest free EP from French Kiwi Juice.
You can tell it’s going to be a good week to come with so much amazing music to share. Start it off right by listening, downloading and spreading those vibes. Peace out.
