[NEW] M.I.A. – Doobie

Taking the web this past week for the nostalgic #Throwback Thursdays, mega-producer Danja leaked a new track from M.I.A. via Youtube titled “Doobie”. The previously unreleased track, recorded during “Bad Girls”, is a fast-paced synth heavy dance track dedicated to that little plant known for placing people on cloud 9. It is not clear whether this track will be on M.I.A’s upcoming project Matangi, whose release was pushed back for being “too positive”, but this short and infectious track is definitely a banger. Be sure to check it out below.

Lazy Rich – Brainfreeze [Electro House]

Full of icy sharp and chilling electro bass, there is a reason why this track has gathered the support from Steve Aoki, Sander van Doorn and Diplo. But enough with the puns. Full time party engineer and dj/producer Lazy Rich has been gaining enormous momentum with the increased frequency of releasing of original material. While the Canadian producer is still known for the applied complexity and energy of each of his remixes, we are seeing a much matured confident side that truthfully, we want to see more of.

‘Brainfreeze’ in its true form is really a grounding power-ball of ‘snarling, gritty, buzzing’ basslines that tightly wrap the electro house just enough without suffocating it.

Will Sparks – Ah Yeah (TJR Edit)


And this is EXACTLY how we like to start a new year (and every morning so far we got the release). With a fantastic year behind him including, bounce master producer TJR provides a thrilling edit to Will Sparks “Ah Yeah”. Still authentic to the original, the now translucently bouncy banger powers through a pounding tech house bassline and vocals samples, throttling momentum towards each drop. This Southern California producer just makes it look easy.

With the release of ‘Ode To Oi’, one of the best tracks of 2012 and still a strong contender for the bounciest single on earth, this new remix is really just a tease for what we can expect in the near future.

BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix: Eric Prydz

MASSIVE NEW ESSENTIAL MIX, powered by Swedish (now based LA) DJ and producer Eric Prydz. We post many mixes throughout the year but what sets this one apart from all the others is its sheer volume of unreleased music.

We would be content with exclusive tracks from Jeremy Olander and Cirez D of Pryda Friends, a sublabel of Eric’s very own label Pryda Recordings… But apparently it just wasn’t enough and thus you can expect the inclussion of another 12 UNRELEASED Pryda tracks.

Whether you had a rough weekend or not, this two hour long mix will ease you into a Monday and give you a glimpse of what to expect in 2013.

Giraffage – Close 2 Me [Must Listen]

Sporadic and yet quite contained, the new sound of San Francisco based producer and recent Alpha Pup Records signee Giraffage demonstrate yet another reason for our complete fascination for his music. ‘Close 2 Me’ manipulates both time and harmonies ultimately composing one of the most seductive chill tracks of the year (so far).

Giraffage, master of time manipulation, also released a gorgeous remix of The Dream’s ‘Shawty Is Da Shit’ to which you can listen below.

Wolf Alice – White Leather [Indie]

Just after the release of ‘Fluffy’ earlier in January, Wolf Alice, the charming four-piece form London, has another delicate story for us. It’s somber but not depressing B-side ‘White Leather’, powered by the smooth and relaxing vocals of Ellie Roswell, will be along with the single on February 11th via Chess Club Records.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #23

Hope you have set aside some quality time to spend with the Chill Dojo this week because a mass discovery of tracks has provided the biggest playlist in the series so far! If so, sit back and enjoy the 25 tunes specially arranged to take you through a journey of mellow sounds and good vibes.

We start with two magical vocal mixes from two different producer duos. The first comes from French act Employee Of The Year, who infuse the dancey original with a super sexy bassline and pads, with touches of beautiful piano chords throughout. A large amount of time on this playlist will probably be spent replaying this song alone. The next is a fresh take on the Lana Del Ray hit by UK team Toyboy & Robin, applying some deep house influences to create some serious vibes on this one. From here, the playlist moves through the motions, with some generous helpings of the jazzy beats that we’ve increasingly featured of late thanks to discoveries like FloFilz. More downtempo music follows with familiar names in Monitor 66 and Satin Jackets, before grooving into some upbeat jams to bring a bit of tropical shine to your Sunday afternoon courtesy of some features from the latest Solé Fixtape from none other than Goldroom (who by the way, if you are not following on Instagram, should do so immediately). We conclude this week’s mix again with another freebie from our favourite chillstep craftsman Sizzlebird. Enough praises have surely been sung by now, you know what to do.

Lots to take in this week’s mix. We’d love some feedback on the playlist while you listen and tell us what style you’ve grown to love the most in our weekly editions, or what you hope to hear more of.  Peace out.
