What I Like (Remix) ft. Danny Brown

In honor of the release of her new album, True Romance, today in the UK, Charli XCX decided to unleash the remix to her standout track, “What I Like” featuring Danny Brown. Charming and aggressive are two words that usually come to mind when describing Charli XCX’s music, and coincidentally enough, those words could also be applied to the eccentric Danny Brown as well. Danny’s proven over the past few weeks, that he’s not afraid to hop on just about anything, as he’s gone on a promotional tear in anticipation of his new album, Old. While “What I Like” was already an infectious pop tune, the inclusion of Danny Brown this time around really adds some new dimensions to the track, making it a must listen for fans of both artists. Make sure to grab a copy of True Romance when it hits our shores tomorrow.

[Indie] Misterwives – Kings & Queens

Misterwives - NYC

Get to know the name Misterwives. The New York City group offer up a truly refreshing blend of folk rock and electro-pop that sees them falling somewhere between Of Monsters and Men‘s epic charm and Passion Pit‘s dance floor infectiousness. The biggest selling point, however, might be frontwoman Mandy Lee’s wafting, well-textured vocals. Listen to their latest single “Kings & Queens”, as well as a bonus track below.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #33

chill dojo

Where the Chill Dojo once meant trying to discover a collection of worthy songs to compile into a playlist, the objective has quickly changed into trying to keep up with the stack of amazing music that is being released week on week. It’s impossible to find and show everything, but what we do have is the best of what your ears should be listening to for this edition.

Though featuring only a few days ago on the site, Bondax’s incredible remix of ‘Open’ is that good it deserves another mention, as the track of the week no less. All the elements blend together perfectly to create a smooth euphoric journey through sound that can only be described as pure vibes.  We’re staying soothing and soulful for the time being with the next song from NY trio Wet. Stellar vocals and production are on full display in this tune which will no doubt be stuck in your head all week. Our next two come from Canadian producer Teen Daze and his latest EP, The House on the Mountain. A mixture of blissful acoustic and electronic sounds combine for the kind of music to induce that floating feeling, and it’s a truly special moment to enjoy. Speaking of magical combinations, French producers Darius and Le Crayon teamed up on the funky masterpiece ‘Alicia’, filled with tropical flavour that longs to be played out at the Summer parties to come. And while we’re in that chill house mood, definitely don’t sleep on the latest from dojo favourite Lane 8. It’s been a big week for Crywolf with his recent Ghosts EP proving successful on the charts, and with the calibre of the two downtempo features we have on our playlist, it’s not hard to see why. To top off the list of must-listen releases, we’ve also included some more of those funky jams which have quickly become a staple of the dojo thanks to names like FloFilz and IAMNOBODI.

So there you have the update to tide you over for another week. If you only have so much time to discover new music, make sure to keep it chill. Peace out.

CONGRATULATIONS

Common and No I.D. decided to bless us with a brand new collaboration this lovely Saturday evening. With it’s mellow and loungy vibes, the song is meant to depict the events of a wedding day from the best man’s perspective. Despite its celebratory start, the song takes a slightly darker turn as Common contemplates intervening during the ceremony. The song features Common at his best. He’s casual, yet still charming and captivating. It’s one of those songs where you can get wrapped up in the lyrics, but still easily vibe to it even if you’re not paying attention. Lookout for more chill tunes from Common and the Cocaine 80s collective as the year progresses.
