This week’s Chill Dojo is dedicated to some much-needed recovery. We’ve all been in that situation where by the time you have mustered the strength to claw out of bed, half your Sunday has already slipped by unknowingly. Rather than regret the hours lost, relax into this week’s playlist and make the rest of your day twice as good as before.
To assist with your Sunday recuperation, we’ve enlisted the help of Bondax and their latest single which will be released early next year. We continue to marvel at the maturity of the sounds being put out by teenage producers in electronic music today, and this song is a textbook example of this kind of prodigious talent. Pierce Fulton has been known to dabble in chill productions in between his signature electro house style, and when he comes out with beautiful tunes like his remix of ‘In No Time’, we definitely encourage him to show more of his mellow side. Taking the calming vocals from the alternative rock band Mutemath and layering it over a magical backdrop of enchanting pads and beats, this one is sure to get a ton of replay for the rest of the day. Vocal remakes are definitely the flavour of the week for Chill Dojo #15, with a stunning rework of ‘Everything to Me’ courtesy of DJ Fresh Direct, who definitely lives up to his name with the catchiness of the vibe-inducing beats at play here. Next up are two very different takes on Rihanna, first a haunting chillstep cover from Cry Wolf, and then a gorgeous downtempo remix from Them Jeans. We’re also revisiting a soulful deep house jam from TMN favorite Follow Me which was featured a few weeks ago. On a final note, there’s plenty of chillstep sprinkled across this edition courtesy of a recent mixtape from Chill Dojo frequenter Cross Them Out.
And that is our heartfelt attempt at making today and this coming week as relaxed as possible. Until next time. Peace out.
Stay (Them Jeans Remix)’
