We’re well into the new year now, about the time where it stops feeling weird writing the number ’13 at the end of the date. Another reason for feeling at ease with the calendar ticking over is the impressive amount of chill tracks that have already begun floating around in 2013. We have assembled a nice line-up for you to cement just how good this year is going to be!
If you’re still not convinced, our track of the week, ‘Only Flaw’, will no doubt turn you around. Having joined Facebook only a few days ago, and with this being the sole piece on show on Soundcloud, there is not much to tell about Wayward besides the UK origins. What is clear from this mellow masterpiece though is that this is definitely a name to watch closely in the weeks to come. Now last week we left you with a stellar array of jazz-infused beats to enjoy as the playlist concluded, so we pick up where we left off with another smooth instrumental courtesy of German beatmaker FloFilz, who has captured all the magic of a smokey lounge atmosphere into 2 minutes of pure delight, which will have you desperately craving more for sure. Speaking of not being able to get enough, the tropical vibes flow once again as we have the pleasure of mentioning the name Goldroom with this feature of Mexican producer Bufi’s official remix for ‘Sweetness Alive’. The combination of guitar and piano is the perfect touch to make this an absolute jam. But our favourite name to drop of late can be none other than Sizzlebird, whose work-rate continues to astound with his ability to slip into the dojo on a regular basis. This week he presented his stunning chillstep entry for the Rameses B remix competition, which is a winner in our books regardless of the result. Finally, the announcement of a new Justin Timberlake album has caused quite the buzz of late, so our next feature revisits some classic JT with a new spin thanks to a brilliant cover from UK future bass group DrDr. There are no words for this one, the gorgeous vocals will say everything.
And now you understand the excitement we have for what this year will bring in the world of chill. Just listen for yourself. Peace out.
