There’s definitely something special in the air over in Norway, because this is fast becoming the source of the best chill music in 2014. Just as Kygo has blown up in recent months and become a global sensation, his fellow countryman Bearson will soon follow with a sound just as unique and mesmerizing. His latest remix of Tristan Prettyman’s ‘Song For The Rich’ is a beautiful experience, pure and simple. Enchanting lyrics and atmospheric acoustics flow together on a stream of care-free feelings, with the sweet tropical sounds icing this amazing creation. This may just be our favorite feature in the Dojo this year. Because one dose of the tropics is never enough, we’ve got another glorious chill house track to follow. Only this time it comes out of Palm Beach courtesy of Thero, and is not a remix of a folk song, but a slowed-down tropical infusion of a progressive house original. It’s interesting to hear how vocals layered over a house track can be given an entirely new life in a different style, and with the right creativity can become even more powerful than any booming synth could ever bestow. We’ve all heard Coldplay’s lyrics been used in all kinds of musical genres, but no remix has caused quite a stir as much as Kygo’s official edit which recently premiered on BBC Radio 1. We don’t want to break up the flow of this playlist with a radio rip, so we’ll wait for the full release before featuring it here, but in the meantime the always-reliable DJ AA has given us another glorious bootleg to tide us over. The mix of Bonobo’s take on ‘Something in the Air’ is perfectly blended with the irresistible Kygo melody, and we’re thankful for this sample to savor during the anxious wait for the official release.

As far as other official proceedings go, the remix competition for Kilter’s ‘They Say’ was decided last week, but he didn’t have to look beyond his home country to find his international winner, with Brisbane’s Omniment claiming the glory. Of course, who best to remix the Australian sound than a fellow Aussie, and this effort from the up-and-coming producer will leave no questions about its deserved victory. The track builds through splashes of summer sounds until bursting point at two minutes, when the full wave of happiness is unleashed at full force on the unsuspecting listener. There’s not as much background to work with on this next track from Telescopic Thieves, but what we can tell you is that the vibes here are on point, and for that it needed to be heard. Stwo is no stranger to dishing out insane vibes, and he’s no stranger to the Chill Dojo either, and his sampling of Jay Prince in his latest jam will ensure that plenty more people will soon get familiar as well. Slow pulsating beats and smooth sampling are this artist’s bread and butter, and we’re always waiting to hear what he cooks up next. Likewise with Kaytranada, so when he announces a remix of Pharrell’s ‘Happy’ you better believe we’re all over that straight away. There’s no real rush though, because this one will stay fresh for a very very long time.

This edition has some of our favorites of the year so far, so this is one not to miss. Peace out.
