[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #72

chill dojo

Around this time of the year the blogosphere gets inundated with love-making playlists curated especially for that one day in February. There’s no point adding more of the same, so we’re going to stick to what we know best and just bring you the best chill songs discovered the week. What you choose to use them for is completely up to you.

One thing did manage to steal our hearts this week though, and that is this incredible edit of an enchanting indie original courtesy of Tennyson. The young Canadian flaunts production skills far beyond his years, injecting serious vibes and a feline persona that could easily be taken as a nod to the work of Cashmere Cat. In any case, one point of no contention is that those keys are absolutely killer, traveling express from the ears to the soul in an instant. Fans of Myst should have no hesitation pointing and clicking to play this next track. NJ producer Au5 deviates from his usual heavy style with an ambient tribute to the cult videogame series, but you don’t need to be in any way familiar to enjoy the pure tranquility flowing from your speakers here. One thing just about everyone has heard about though is Flume’s remix of ‘Hyperparadise’ and this week GANZ’s flip on the track is proving to be just as popular, building an insane amount of views and for good reason too. The original has likely been on heavy rotation in your library ever since its release, and this fresh take certainly commands the same replayability. This week also saw a free compilation released from Pilerates Records containing plenty of chill material to beef up your playlists. Electric Mantis grabbed our immediate attention with his lush composition ‘Ticking and Tocking’, which is just as beautifully hypnotic as its name suggests. Meanwhile Trill Scott Heron has done a number on another one of his tracks, saturating it with his future sounds like only he knows how. Denmark’s Galimatias continues to prove why he’s a favourite in our eyes, combining with Joppe and the lyricism of Goldlink for a hip hop experience of tomorrow. The production here is next level with an undeniable beat to match, and we sincerely hope this kind of soul food will be generously served all through 2014.

So who really cares about that one day in the year? This kind of music has us falling in love every day. Peace out.

Last week may have been our Valentine’s edition of Sunday Night Soul, but this week’s lineup features many of the singles crafted specifically with the special holiday in mind.

We’ve got an All-Star lineup prepared for you tonight (ironic considering the NBA All-Star Game just ended), featuring such lofty names as Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, OmarionNe-Yo, Mya and JoJo (the latter three also happened to drop some spectacular Valentine’s EPs as well).

[NEW] Beyoncé – Drunk In Love (Watch The Duck EDM Trap Remix) (Feat. Jay Z & T.I.)

Drunk In Love Ft. JAY Z & T.I. (Watch The Duck EDM - TRAP Remix)

“Drunk In Love” is quickly becoming that single that everybody wants a piece of. This weekend alone, we’ve already heard remixes from Kanye West, Diplo, Detail and The Weeknd. Now Atlanta trapstep trio Watch The Duck are looking to get a piece of the action with their tricked out “EDM Trap” remix. Recruiting T.I. to open the track with a savvy verse, this latest reinvention is sure to quickly get the energy flowing. Between this and Diplo’s effort from the other night, it’s a tough call to say who has the better party starter on their hands. Of course, there’s no reason you can’t include both versions on your playlists as you prepare for festival season.

Drunk In Love (The Weeknd Remix)

Just when we thought we were done with the remixes, this happens. In honor of his 24th year on this earth, The Weeknd decided to celebrate the only way he knows how: by dropping his own rendition of “Drunk In Love.” In true Abel fashion, the Canadian crooner replaces the intoxication of the original with his typical musings about drug use and debauchery. With a completely original beat and fresh lyrics, The Weeknd furthers the concept of the record through his own inspiration, bringing the song to a whole different level. Grab a free download of the single above, and make sure to send your birthday wishes Abel’s way.

[Deep House] Ferdinand Weber & Fabich – Aaliyah

Ferdinand Weber & Fabich
Aaliyah

After gaining much esteem with their recent edit of The Weeknd’s ‘Devil May Cry’, the partnership of Ferdinand Weber and Fabich returns with another polished performance set to build their profile even higher in 2014. As the title suggests, this time the pair have put to use the stunning vocals of the American songstress in a fitting tribute to her smooth style. Impeccably clean sampling and infectious bounce saturate the tropical feel of this track, and it was no doubt the intention to echo the vibes  from ‘Rock the Boat’, which they’ve done here with great success. Though through tragic circumstance the artist’s career was cut short, it’s heartening to know her voice will live on through glorious re-imaginings like the track above.

The Outkast Cover Artist Named ZHU, Releases Another Gem Titled “Superfriends.”

Superfriends
ZHU
Superfriends.

The unknown artist responsible for that glorious “Moves Like Ms Jackson.” Outkast cover is back with an upload to a random Soundcloud. There’s no download for this track which leads us to believe it’s an Original from our unknown prodigy. Starting off with some infectious synth work, and a melody that carries perfectly throughout the entire tune. Accompanied by some very on point, slowed raps vocals, and some funky drum work that definitely goes one deeper. There’s also some impressive vocals from our unknown prodigy singing about being “Superfriends”. The mix between Hip-Hop and Disclosure-esque House is just a taste of the future, and we can only hope there’s more where this came from. Cheers.

[Trap] Beyoncé – Drunk n Luv (Diplo Remix)

Beyoncé
drunk n luv (diplo remix)

We told you there were a ton of remixes to this single didn’t we? What it basically sums up to is that if you weren’t listening to Beyoncé last night, you weren’t doing Valentine’s Day right. As the third major remix to drop in the last 24 hours (we promise this is the final one), Diplo definitely makes sure to stand out from the crowd (as he always does). Dropping a massive, festival ready tune, Diplo’s reinterpretation certifies that this song won’t be escaping your rotation anytime soon.
