[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #95

chill dojo

Whatever the events of your weekend, be it wild or chilled, Dojo number 95 has more than enough material to make sure the wind-down continues well into the working week. Now Joe Garston is a name that you wouldn’t necessarily think of in kicking off a chill playlist, being widely known for his energetic brand of bouncy electro-house. But as many artists have shown us in previous editions, there’s every possibility that elements of your style can be given a mellow feel. Though there’s no thumping bassline present at all in ‘Someday’, the pure happiness embodied in this track is undoubtedly the work of the UK producer. The nostalgic tone is a surreal experience, and will invoke all those memories you hold close to your heart. On the opposite end of the spectrum, New Zealand beatsmith Samuel Truth gives us a soundtrack to a frozen land of fantasy. Well NZ is the land of fantasy after all, and the wintery feel coupled with the palpable emotion is a combo that makes ‘The Cold’ all too real. If that’s way too frosty for your liking, we’ve always got some new Snakehips to breathe the feeling of summer back into your ears. Their latest single ‘After I Met U’ is another jam for your festival season oozing in that signature groove that is so damn addictive, showing just why they consistently provide hit after hit. Another name who delivers one funky tune after the next is none other than Dojo-favorite JNL. The feisty Canadian has outdone himself once again with ‘By Yourself’, bringing a vibe that echoes some serious Daft Punk influences, and will induce some spontaneous dance-floor behavior.

German label Jakarta Records recently released a free compilation of unreleased music from a number of familiar names, and among them was an absolute gem from MURAMASA. Amongst the wealth of smooth beats contained in Summer In Jakarta, ‘Miss You’ immediately stuck out with its lush melody and emotive vocals that reach straight for the heartstrings without any sign of letting go. This will be a go-to song in your library for when you need it most. Hold on tight, because we’re gonna go really deep with this last one. KAASI is notorious for concocting a dangerously deep tune, and you know you’re in for something special when he declares it’s his best yet. We would very much agree with that, because this one flows endlessly into a state of sheer serenity.

Monday sorrows are nothing in the face of this seriously chill tunage. Peace out.

[Electro] Lil Silva – Don’t You Love (Feat. BANKS)

Lil Silva - Don't You Love (feat. BANKS)

Don't You Love (Feat. BANKS)

Do you love BANKS as much as we do? Well her recent collaboration with British producer and DJ Lil Silva will deifnitely satisfy all of Jillian’s fans. This new track by Lil Silva titled “Don’t You Love” has an interesting yet lengthy buildup. From the get go, Lil Silva is incorporating his funky elements into the beat. There are the echoing male vocals in the beginning, something resembling BANKS’ style, most notable in “Brain” produced by Shlomo.  Then as the funky bass comes in, the anticipation builds up. The vocals from BANKS don’t come in until over half way to the track, but the result is a drop that gets you vibin’ and headbobbing all over the place. BANKS’ solo towards the end of the tune shows every bit of her goddess-like sassiness. Everything comes together so well with the overdue beat drop that it was worth all the hype and anticipation.

With his new project “Maple EP” coming out August 4, Lil Silva is definitely looking to diversify his fan base by recruiting some of BANKS’. With the addition of this track, we are very excited to how BANKS is going to change the game with the release of her new album.

There is absolutely nothing more fun than a groovy Nu-Disco tune to get you through the final hours of your monotonous day job. The weekend called and said it’s about that time we kick things off early, so why not do it with a new tune from TJH87? The Finnish duo teamed up with Gamble & Burke for their latest original, “Good Life”, to which my grandma even had something good to say about this funky disco jam.

This tune is jam packed with funk guitars, massive synths, and a bass to take you back to the OG Daft Punk days. We over here at TMN have had this one on repeat, so press play and let that figurative disco ball light up your cubicle while you get ready for a big weekend ahead. With HARD Summer mode in full gear, we promise that TJH87 will get you in the right mood to rage your butt’s off in the coming days. Stay golden, ninjas, and party hard.

Love Sex Magic (Axmod Remix)

There is really nothing better than waking up to your cat meowing for food and good music blasting in the background to get the day started. What better way to start your Friday off than with a little “Love Sex Magic” remix to get you back into the 2009 groove? Hailing all the way from France is tropical house producer, Axmod; he decided to add his melodic touch on this Ciara and Justin Timberlake classic to which he brought us back to paradise with this one.

As soon as the music starts, you are introduced with a striking synth and a mono animated vocal to drown out the wavey vibes of this ambient tune. If this doesn’t scream Summer, then we don’t really know what does. Get the Friday flow going with this number and make sure to grab your free download while you’re at it.

[TWERK] Armin van Buuren – Ping Pong (Dani Deahl Remix)

Ping Pong (Dani Deahl Remix) [OUT NOW!]

We keep hearing stories of bootlegs becoming official remixes. It’s extremely inspiring to hear that, especially with how many up-and-coming producers  trying to make it nowadays. It seems if you make something excellent, and submit it to the artist; you may have a chance for an official remix. Dani Deahl did exactly that.

It’s approaching the weekend, and we know you ninjas are trying to turn up! Well, if you’re looking for a perfect track to turn up, look no further! Dani’s remix of Armin van Buuren’s “Ping Pong” will have you falling through roofs from dancing, just like in the “Turn Down For What” video. This remix takes a melody from the original, and completely flips it on it’s head. “Ping Pong” was originally a trance tune, and never something we depicted ourselves turning up to… Well, Dani Deahl completely changed our perspectives with her revision of the track. Plus the whole fact that it was originally a bootleg goes to show how talented of a producer she is. It’s not the easiest feat to take a song without having stems provided, and make it into such a bangin’ track!

Be careful on how hard you turn up to this one, because we love you and want you to be safe!

[R&B/Soul] Reva Devito – babesquad

Reva DeVito
babesquad

There is perhaps nothing more sultry on this Earth than a girl with a genuine talent in music. We of course carry affections for the popstars that dominate our radio and the indie starlets abroad, however it is becoming rarer than than ever to find a girl with soul, both on the inside and outside. The geniuses over at HW&W have however, and she’s a national treasure worth sharing with you today. Hailing from the soulful Rose City of Portland, Oregon, Reva Devito is truly the entire package: looks, attitude, and most importantly talent. She has linked up with some solid producers in the past (most notably Kaytranada), however she recruits the talents of the legendary Com Truise for “babesquad”. Over a simple soulful beat, Devito brings us a performance that would make Erykah Badu jealous and hopefully it will enchant your ears as much as it did mine. So glad to join the Ninja team, be on the lookout for much more quality sound selections to come!
