The hardest part about assembling the Chill Dojo each week isn’t finding amazing music to share, it’s deciding which are the best tracks to feature amidst the mountain of choice we are provided. Given this difficulty, this edition sees another playlist that is 15 tunes strong, which might just become the norm if this trend continues.
It’s always interesting to see the variation in genres when it comes to the top picks of the week, and deep house vibes are definitely the go for this instalment. First up is an incredibly mellow mix from German producer Larse, taking the already phenominal original from Feed Me and Crystal Fighters and adding his own touch with a bassline that is so perfect in its minimal approach. This replay button is getting a good workout on this one to say the least. Our second contender hails from a powerhouse label in deep house, French Express, with Chris Malinchak delivering a piece of musical heaven whose title is the exact summary of my feelings towards it, just so damn good. JNLheadlined the first ever Chill Dojo, and for whatever unfathomable reason I have somehow slept on this seriously funky jam until now. Needless to say I am kicking myself, because everyone needs this in their life. While we’ve jumped on the funk train for the time being, we may as well continue the theme with a gem from Norwegian discodudes Lemâitre, who deliver something very reminiscent of Madeon, a clear compliment in its own right. Things then slow down a touch to conclude the standouts for this week, UK producer Rostik crafting a deeply emotional experience with “Willow Trees,” and Frenchman Evil Needle gifting us a slice of serenity in “Falling Leaves,” which we featured just a few days ago.
Of course there is so much more that can be said about the playlist that lies beneath, but it’s probably best explained by simply hitting that play button and letting the music tell the rest. Snag the free downloads as well, and stay tuned for a special surprise coming your way next week to mark the occasion of dojo number 10!
