If all the recent contention surrounding the Beatport Top 100 has got you craving some new sounds, the Chill Dojo can promise you something fresh on a weekly basis. There are ton of emerging artists delivering something unique to satisfy your musical desires, as well as our dojo favourites who are constantly evolving their signature styles. So forget all the genre doom and gloom and just chill.
What better way to celebrate this musical diversity than with three new stunning tracks from French Kiwi Juice’s second EP, Time for a Change. It’s a very topical title indeed, and the three features here are the perfect display of this artist’s versatile sound incorporating soulful groove and funky beats. The opening piano chords are enough to know you’ll be hooked on this one. And while we’re talking versatile styles, Mr. Carmack is the definition of just that, regularly doing the rounds both here and in the Trap Dojo. Well he’s back in the playlist this week thanks to two new tunes that let his soft side shine through. There’s no point even trying to assign a genre to these two, so just listen to them with the forewarning that they are at dangerously high levels of smooth. Oh that warning applies to the next Amerie remix as well, because French beatmaker Blacksoul has injected this classic RnB jam with incredible sounds that carry some serious vibes. It’s really hard to describe just how amazing this is, but damn those French know how to make a good thing better. Something that can’t be improved though is the beautiful voice of British songstress Laura Mvula. Nevertheless, UK producer MJ Cole has dabbled in some masterful vocal slicing and dicing to prove that they can sound just as beautiful chopped as they are whole. Finally, we couldn’t end this week’s edition without mentioning our excitement over the forthcoming Shook debut album. The announcement came with a free release of featured title ‘Summer Heat’, which is signature Shook and of course, made for Summer.
You definitely won’t find two songs the same in this dojo. Variety is the spice of life after all. Peace out.
