Philadelphia native Andy States, who releases music under the moniker Cruiser, recently put out a self-titled EP this past May. Produced by Jeremy Park — who also happened to work on Youth Lagoon‘s widely-acclaimed The Year Of Hibernation — it includes six glistening indie pop gems, with melodies so sweet and addictive they’ll make your teeth hurt. One of the tracks, “Don’t Go Alone,” has especially been gaining some traction lately, which comes as no surprise given its undeniable, upbeat pep. Also included below is “Souvenir,” my personal favorite off the EP. Its Beach House-dreaminess and cute chorus make it a sure winner in my book.

Over the past few months, Seven Lions, the Californian progressive dubstep mastermind has been producing on an unparalleled level. His latest release, a remix of Velvetine’s “The Great Divide”, which premiered exclusively a couple weeks back on Myon & Shane 54’s International Departures, is nothing short of heavenly. Seven Lion’s emphasizes the luscious vocals of the original with his signature liquid bass and euphoric synths, elevating this trance anthem to an entirely new level. Give this song a listen and be prepared to have this gem on repeat all day. Enjoy!

Everyone please bow down, Dodge & Fuski are here and they brought some insane tuneage. I’ve had this incredible track stuck in my head all day, since first hearing it in Zomboy‘s Mix for Never Say Die that dropped a few weeks back. It samples some catchy vocals that instantly reminded me of “Got 2 Know” by Flux Pavilion. The wobbles in this tune are very unique featuring a distorted melody that hits almost too hard. Dodge & Fuski are on the rise so stay tuned and watch this bass powerhouse slowly take over the world. “Got 2 Come Together” is off the upcoming EP Bad Meaning Good scheduled to drop October 8th via Never Say Die. Cheers.
This track is free once liking Dodge & Fuski on Facebook.

MNDR released her debut album Feed Me Diamonds only about a month ago, but her evocative vocals in the track “Faster Horses,” has already inspired a countless number of remixes. One in particular, which has been fuelling energy on the dance floor is that of the 21-year-old Californian-based DJ, Deorro (formerly known as Ton!c). It features a faster beat, heavier bassline and strong emphasis on the vocal hook, creating a noteworthy club track.
Faster Horses (Deorro Remix) Out Now on Ultra Records!

Sometimes there are weeks where it’s difficult to find time to switch off from everything and have a moment to yourself. If you have stumbled across this week’s Chill Dojo, then that is a sure sign that the time is right for you to enjoy that moment now. There has been plenty of stellar chill music to soak in recently, as well as some classics that deserve a feature for their timeless ability to drown out all the unwanted chaos of the daily grind.
If you missed our recent post on the release of the official music video for Jessie Ware’s “Night Light,” our first feature on this week’s playlist includes the incredibly mellow remix from Perseus, who superbly blends those vocals into a smooth euphoria. Next up is a new one from MartyParty, which as the song title suggests, captures a feeling that can only be described as sex for your ears. Also included is some new releases from Le Youth and Viceroy, who are two producers committed to spreading summer vibes all year round. Finally, rounding out this week are a few of the chill selections from the RAC’s Solé Fixtape, which then inspired a throwback to more soothing tunes from Drop Out Orchestra. Altogether this makes for some serious downtime, so I hope you’ve settled in. Peace out.

Last year I saw Santah perform for the first time at one of Paste Magazine‘s CMJ shows and was pretty blown away by their set. As I mentioned in a review that I wrote, the five-piece had such a hearty rusticity that I could’ve sworn their music was inspired by some kind of southern roots, especially as they immediately made me think of The Love Langage. Though they’re actually from Chicago, the charm is still 100% sincere and 100% irresistible. Their latest single “Indigo” gives listeners more than enough to hold onto, from its natural gruffness and sonorous organs to the warm vocals of siblings Stanton and Vivian McConnell. Download it below!
“Indigo” is off Santah’s upcoming EP, You’re Still A Lover, out October 16th.
The latest single from WHY? is a melodic indie rock ditty and another reason to anxiously await the Cincinnati group’s fifth full-length album, Mumps etc., due out October 9th via Anticon/City Slang. In case this leaves you unconvinced, check out their previously released single “Jonathan’s Hope,” which we raved about last month.
