[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #60

chill dojo

With dojo number 60 we are well into the golden years, but we’re far from retiring anytime soon. This week’s playlist gives us plenty of reasons to keep groovin on, and that’s what we plan on doing for a long time to come.

Now brace yourselves for the insanely sweet funk that is this remix of DCUP’s ‘Don’t be Shy’ by La Felix. Though this rendition wasn’t included on the EP, it may just be our favourite one, and it won’t take long for it to steal your heart as well. The smooth piano melodies and disco flavour sound like something straight out of Breakbot’s playbook, bringing an unescapable charm and a feeling of joy you’ll never want to end. Alas, we do need to move on, but thankfully it’s onto a track that is equally as smooth from one of our favourite artists in Bit Funk. Taking on a hip-hop classic from Pharcyde is no easy task, but the way this set the Hypem charts alight over this past week is testament to how well this was pulled off. This is the version for 2013 which nails the vintage 90’s style to a tee. Another man who oozes old school flair in everything he does is Aeroplane, and his latest remix of Mayer Hawthorne is another treat for disco fiends everywhere. The gifts keep on coming with this bright and sunny take on Goldroom’s ‘Embrace’, which is no doubt the way it is best enjoyed. The original has definitely been getting plenty of remix love lately, but these tropical vibes from UK’s jackLNDN were not to be denied. But for those whose dancing legs aren’t what they used to be, it’s time to tone things down to a more relaxed feeling with this beautiful tune off Maribou State’s recent EP Truths. The sampling and vibes in this song are all on point, making for music that is simply good for the soul. And sometimes simplicity is the best thing when it comes to chill music, especially when dealing with the calibre of London Grammar’s ‘Hey Now’. Phil Drummond stays true to that notion completely with his edit of the original, adding subtle touches ready made for deeper house sets. On a final note, we end the playlist with a tribute to the passing of legend Lou Reed, a man whose musical contributions will never fade.

That’s the magic of this powerful stuff we enjoy writing about so much. Peace out.

Hold On, We’re Going For The Remix – The Best Remixes & Covers of Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home”

Drake-Hold-On-Were-Going-Home-1

Last week was Drake‘s birthday (October 24th), and in order to properly celebrate his 27th year on this earth, we’ve put together a nice little belated gift for October’s Very Own. Below we’ve compiled 22 (because 20 just wasn’t enough) of the best covers and remixes of possibly the most addicting single to drop this year, “Hold On, We’re Going Home.” It’s almost astonishing how many unique renditions of the track we were able to find during our search, making it incredibly tough to narrow down our selection. Nonetheless, we’ve broken them down for you into two separate collections of 11 songs each, listed in no particular order. Even the staunchest Drizzy haters will find something to enjoy here, with revisions that range from the garage rock stylings of Arctic Monkeys to the festival friendly Max Methods refix and everything in between.

Check out all the different selections below, and let us know if there’s any that we might’ve missed!

[Video] Carousel – Another Day

Another Day

It’s been a little while since we’ve heard from our favorite Happy-Dance duo Carousel, as they have been on tour or locked inside of their studio for the past handful of months, so when their brand new music video for one of our favorite singles off of their recent Palms EP, “Another Day”came across our desks, it was met with a beaming grin. The video, directed by Felipe Torres Urso, follows a very fraternity-associated looking young man into a Summer pool party as through the eyes of a very young girl and her dolls and then on a day with a beautiful girl, which conceptually unfolds quite well in an artistic and simple manner. Enjoy the official music video for “Another Day” below and if you haven’t already picked up a copy of the excellent Palms you can do so after the jump for the price of just your e-mail.

[Tribal Pop] Manicanparty EP

artworks-000060693912-1srype-original

The formidable duo from Minnesota first struck us with their anthemic single, “Rebels in the Light” late last year, and their self-titled EP, Manicanparty has finally arrived for us to relish.

The tribal rhythms throughout the EP are enough on their own to help any listener distinguish their sound from “just another pop band”. But the expressive lyrics carried with each note is what really stirred our interest and kept us listening. Every track shares a distinct narrative, and Jessica’s multifaceted vocals blend incredibly well with the variety of emotions you’ll feel throughout the album. Her clarion pitch reminds us of Dolores O’Riordan from the Cranberries with undertones of Ellie Goulding. Take a listen to “It’s In Her Eyes” and then to “Lonely Will Find Me”,  and you’ll know exactly what we mean. 

Jessica Corazza and Patrick Morrissey could definitely be on the up and rising, and we would not be one bit surprised if one of their songs make its way into the soundtrack of an upcoming film production.

It’s free for download, so why not give it a listen and drift off into the story of another for a little bit?

Raveena Aurora & The Sifters – Furthest Thing (Drake Cover)

Furthest Thing (Drake) Cover

There has been an absolute onslaught of covers from Drake’s new album. Out of the ashes of his love lit lyrics we keep hearing countless interpretations of his tunes. His apparently shattered heart served up ample opportunities for everyone else to take their turn playing with his lyrics. And, as expected, we have a great banjo driven cover for you to enjoy today.

New York youngster Raveena Aurora teamed up with The Sifters to serve up a delightful cover of “Furthest Thing.” Between the twangy plucks of the banjo and Raveena’s silky vocals, we simply can’t get enough.
