Chill music is like that friend in your life that can make light of any situation. The best tracks can bring a smile to your face when it’s needed most, or can make a good moment even better. So here’s to the people and music that make us happy.

If there was ever a melody that embodied these sentiments, it’d be from our track of the week courtesy of LA artist spazzkid. ‘Getting to Know You’ is infectiously joyous, the kind of music that looks to spread all the good vibes you can possibly fit into 5 minutes. The kind of tune that could even tame an enraged bear (wouldn’t recommend testing that though). Continuing the positive feelings is the young talented Parisian, Stwo, with a silky smooth remix of some classic Nas.  The up-and-coming producer hasn’t been in the game for too long, but is already getting plenty of notice for his soulful skills. It’s a magical thing when well-crafted lyrics are matched with a track of equal quality, and this one certainly has it all happening. If you’d like another example of such a perfect pairing, bootleg specialist DJ AA has done it again with a super chilled mix combining the vocals of Ben Harper with Affelaye’s ‘Never Felt Real’. We bow down to you and your genius ear for stellar mashups. We’re certainly not short of fresh talent this week, our next feature highlighting an amazing Ellie Goulding edit from Australian duo, LatchlessFrom their self-description as “Full-time Ninjas”, we could already tell they would fit in well here, and the track certainly ticks all the right boxes. Just perfect. And we’ll end this week’s features with another perfect note, this remix from Henry KrinkleThe production on this future-sound is just too good, with a soundscape that is oh so sexy.

So definitely plenty to smile about in this week’s playlist. And we’ll do it all again next time. Peace out.
