Weekends aren’t always for raging, and sometimes it’s just a chill night with friends that makes for the perfect result. But all nights need music, and we’ve taken all the guesswork out of that decision with a playlist to get your night going in all the right ways.

Nothing beats good soulful sounds, and French group Synapson have made that a point of difference into everything they deliver. Our first two features this week are two examples of just that, bringing funky guitar and groovy basslines into two stellar remixes. It’s a special thing when great vocals are taken to another level with the right treatment, and this group can certainly do no wrong. With that in mind, you would have to bring something exceptional to the table to tackle the vocals of Robin Thicke, but Fool’s Gold’s own Sammy Bananas more than proves he’s up to the task with a creative bootleg of ‘Feel Good’. The result is a classy transformation of the poppy original with a super smooth bassline and fantastic progression. Those chord stabs will have you seduced without even offering to buy you a drink first. Continuing the trend of great vocal remixes is UK producer Jackson Real, who works some similar magic with Fenech-Soler. The artist does a great job of switching up the pace throughout the track, but keeps those ambient pads a constant feature in this solid summer jam. But as far as summer sounds go, Le Crayon’s Give You Up EP was a must-listen for any fan, and while every tune on the release impressed, the remix from fellow Frenchman Darius was an absolute jaw-dropper. A tropical touch is always a winner in our books. But of course, it’s not all about vocals this week, and we have ended our playlist with a few insane instrumentals from Gramatik. He recently gifted his fanbase with a full stream of SB4, a collection of vintage beats and samples from his hiphop days, and there are plenty of chill gems throughout. We’re all for any direction the artist chooses to take his music, but it’s always good to get a taste of his incredible past work.

So if you’re planning a chill night with mates anytime soon, at least you know the music is already taken care of. Peace out.
