It’s crazy to think that it’s already been another year since our first Chillmas dojo, but we’re far too preoccupied with kicking back to the amazing music that 2013 has delivered to even care about how time flies. It’s time once again to get festive with our gift to you in another stacked playlist overflowing with presents for your ears. So amidst all the Christmas rush, take some time to treat yourself and chill out. It’s the holiday season after all.
It’s only fitting that we kick things off with one of the biggest stories of 2013, the Hypem Chart climber himself in Kygo. The young Norwegian has certainly made a name for himself this year with a steady stream of brilliant downtempo remixes, and he continues his wave of success with another genius edit. In signature fashion, Kygo elevates the beautiful vocals to float atop his cloud of happiness, with the usual splashes of tropical flavour and infectious bouncing bassline. And while we’re riding that wave of ecstasy, dojo favourites Goldroom are there to continue this feeling with their synth-pop rendition of ‘All Eyes on You” featured last week. You know the deal when it comes to the best of nu-disco acts out there, but there’s nothing like a good sax solo to really seal it. It must really be the silly season, because it’s not often we throw the name Justin Bieber around these parts, but Manila Killa has delivered a Christmas gift that is well worth a bite. He has certainly worked his magic on this flip, because this lush mix will actually make you swallow your pride and jam out to Biebz like an obsessed pre-teen. Just roll with it, we won’t judge. There’s definitely no conflict in pumping some Lindsay Lowend though, and the next level production in ‘Basement Dweller Overture’ is like a journey through sound. Prepare yourself for what comes at the 2 minute mark, because it may just rock your world. Stwo was another revelation in 2013, and the master beatmaker has been nonstop all year. It’s poetic that we have another smooth remix to get lost in before the year is up. And so cues the mellow part of the playlist, with Belgium’s WiSkiM to carry us away with an ambient masterpiece, layered with gorgeous sampling of Ellie Goulding.
That wraps up another incredible year of music, and there’s no doubt that 2014 will only deliver more creativity that will further blow our minds. In true chill fashion, the dojo will be taking a little break for a while to relax and refresh for everything the new year brings. Until then, keep it cool over these holidays. Peace out.
