There’s a big step between making exceptional remixes and building an entire song from scratch, and for a lot of artists it’s a daunting task to make every element of a track their own. This week, dojo favourite Dinnerdate took that leap with the release of his first original title, ‘Going On’, and boy did he get it right. The deep garage groove and lush percussive soundscape are the perfect reflection of this producer’s style, and tight vocal sampling completes the package for an excellent debut original. We’ve been bitten by the tropical bug again in this edition, and the main cause of this palm tree fever is a stunning remix of ‘Pictures’ from FlicFlac and Bearson. We’re putting this one up there with the likes of Kygo and Thomas Jack, and that’s enough to sum up how much we rate it. It takes only a few seconds for the sweet acoustic sampling to re-ignite those summer feelings and memories of late nights spend with the people that matter to us most. To make sure this continues beyond a fleeting moment, we’re lucky enough to have a new one from the man we just spoke about. Thomas Jack salutes the end to the Australian summer in the most fitting way possible, and though the sun sets on our favourite season for some parts of the world, this tune brings promise of a huge 2014 for this talented youngster. The partnership of Deepjack and Mr.Nu has been known for it’s ability to reinvent some classics with a new disco flavour, and their latest take on The Black Eyed Peas may just be their best to date. Perhaps it’s the memory of the pop group in their prime, but there’s a definitely an undeniable sense of nostalgia tied up in this re-work, and we can’t stop smiling for it. Always hot on the trail of a new chill jam, DJ AA has wasted no time in discovering the perfect vocal accompaniment for this one as well. Once again he’s worked some magic into this bootleg, pun shamefully intended. Funky Frenchman Prizm is not content with just magic though, and so he spices things up with some additional love and sex from Ciara and JT. Trust the French to know how to add another level of seduction with some irresistible production.

It’s hard not to feel the heat radiating from playlist #75. We’re forecasting good feelings ahead. Peace out.
