A little bit of raw emotion for you indie lovers. This leading track from Farewell J.R shows promise — mostly because it is so darn epic. Escalating into a wall of sound starting from wandering and spaced-out croons, all five minutes and four seconds of “Night Wolves” is a journey in and of itself. Count down the days until March 11th when this track is released along with its companion tracks on Farewell J.R’s debut EP, Health (via Talking Shop Records). Whew, chills and shivers pulse with every listen…
Driven by a combination of drum sounds, synths, and computerized sounds effects, LA native producer TOKiMONSTA returns today with a new single titled “Go With It”. This infectious dance number mixes an eclectic collection of sounds as backdrop for the smooth vocals of singer MNDR to deliver a catchy single. It has been awhile since we heard new material from either of the two artists and this airy gem is a definitely an answer to fans’ prayers. TOKiMONSTA has been capitalizing on the synth-pop sound and her buzz keeps growing on the underground. It is only a matter of time before she starts getting a lot more attention for her upcoming effort Half Shadows, dropping April 2nd. Be sure to listen to the eccentric sound below.

Manchester’s The 1975 will drop their brand new EP, Music For Cars, this week. But just in case you remain unconvinced by their stunning guitar-pop and keen ear for contagious melodies — which we’ve gushed about a few times here — they’ve put the entire 5-song collection online for your streaming pleasure. Listen in below and let the fandom commence.
Can it get any better then the RL Grime & Salva remix of “Mercy”? We’ll leave that decision up to you, but this song is so next level, I can barely contain myself right now. When first seeing RL Grime live about a month ago it seemed like every few minutes of his set, he was announcing another unreleased track he was about to play. This track aired earlier today in RL Grime’s set for Diplo and Friends BBC Radio 1 show, to listen click here. The mix itself is a flawlessly display Trap and Hip-hop and features a diverse track list featuring some of the most unique sounds in the game. No release date yet, will keep you posted. Cheers.

By now, it’s safe to assume that if you’ve been following the Chill Dojo for a while, you already have a handy repertoire of artists you’ve begun to follow. If there’s one thing we can provide beyond a weekly playlist to vibe to, it’s the discovery of new names you wouldn’t have heard of otherwise, which is a beautiful thing for everyone involved. There are plenty of dojo favourites returning again this week, and it shouldn’t be too hard for these songs to immediately jump off the page.
And if there’s one name that should immediately grab your attention on any playlist, it’s Shook, whose remix of Ghost Beach delivers those signature summer poolside vibes to convincingly stamp himself for track of the week. The groovy house feelings continue with another regular in Lane 8, releasing a mellow sequel to ‘The Voice’ which hits all the right notes. A little chillstep now to slow things down a touch, and when there’s chillstep, you just know there’s going to be Sizzlebird. ‘Alive’ will soon be released as part of an EP sharing the same name, which will no doubt contain many more relaxing gems from this amazing producer. This week also delivers a nice selection of chill trap to enjoy, starting with a gorgeous remix from WiSkiM, and continuing onto plenty more sexy beats to carry you away. Speaking of beats, there’s also some new tunage from our favourite European groovemakers in Moods and FloFilz, so prepare yourself to experience the involuntary body movements that they inevitably bring forth.
Again, if you’re a regular dojo visitor, these names will all speak for themselves. All that’s left to do is sit back and soak it in. Peace out.

The M Machine gets remixed by Kill The Noise, enough said. The incredible melodies from “Ghosts In The Machine” get mixed with the explosive sound design that KTN is so well known for. This was recently played by Kill The Noise in an untitled Mix that was sent over to me. No release date yet, we will keep you posted. Cheers.

Well as another month passes we have to say goodbye to Mr Justin Blau, or as we like to call him EDM mastermind 3LAU. What a month it has been and the whole team at TMN would like to give one last shout out to Justin and say we can’t wait to see how the year unfolds for you and obviously can’t wait to see you perform wherever ninjas are present!
For this last week we have the 5 tracks that Justin is rocking to when he gets a free minute from dropping his own beats and here they are:
