Often music news has more to do with celebrity antics than anything of actual musical quality. Well that may be of interest to some, but as far as the Chill Dojo’s concerned, we’re far too wrapped up with what’s really worth talking about, talented artists and amazing music.

Our first track from Moods is exactly that, with a shining example of a raw instrumental that is a million times sexier than any display of ‘twerking’ could ever achieve. We’ve been a strong advocate for the Dutch beatmaker for a while now, and his stunning production on this addition to the latest EP from Catching Flies is well deserving of another shout out. It seems like we’re singing this guy’s praises every week, but lo and behold Kaytranada is back again with that signature bassline and drums that we just can’t get enough of. Whether you choose to dance or just vibe to his latest remix of JMSN, it’s definitely another feather in his cap for what has been an absolute tear of late. The modern revival of R&B classics has been an exciting trend in recent times, with many artists bringing tracks from the late 90’s and early 00’s into a new scene of future sounds mixed with the sexy jams of the past. This week we feature DJ Hoodboi who adds some Jersey Club flavour to this 2001 chart-topper from Ginuwine, which is sure to get bodies moving all over again 12 years later. German duo Gamper & Dadoni have been another revelation to the dojo this week, but their array of bouncy, light-hearted mixes are a perfect way to see out summer. So too is this latest remix from Figgy, who takes on the beloved original from Banks, and brings a new level of warmth to this smooth serenade. Dojo favourite Lane 8 certainly knows his way around a beautiful female voice, so expectations were set pretty high for his remix of the stunning ‘Youth’ from Daughter. But, just as always, his chilled house style perfectly caresses the gorgeous vocals for amazing results. And before we wrap up, we have to give a final shout out to another new discovery in Kygo, the 21 year old Norwegian producer who sports a Soundcloud well worth checking out if you’re digging the tunes we’ve posted below.

So for all the music news that really matters, you know where to go. Peace out.
