Holidays are the best, well that is unless your social media feeds are full of pictures of everyone else taking them. For all those gearing up for the working week ahead instead of packing their suitcases, this dojo’s got you covered with plenty of chill tunes for that little slice of the holidays with every listen.
We start with the latest from a favourite UK producer in Kidnap Kid, who enlists the sweet voice of Lotti for a smooth house track that makes the perfect ingredient to any summer. Gorgeous piano stems and progression make this one to be played again and again, all season long. But no matter the temperature outside, this next feature will be sure to heat things up wherever it’s played. Leo Kalyan, a fresh UK artist, makes his first post on Soundcloud one to remember with a downright sexy refix of Duke Dumont’s ‘Need U (100%)’. This has all the makings of a true babymaker, with the slowed vocals blended to perfection with the deep atmosphere and pure vibes. Just wait for the hums to kick in…magic. While the UK seems to be the hub for these amazing sounds right now, Canada’s Kaytranada is no stranger to some deep groove either, and makes the case for his home country with an infectious beat that is slick beyond words. And while we’re talking slick beats, Metic, a downtempo beatmaker from Hong Kong, brings us a super fun bootleg that couldn’t be more summer if it tried. A funky mix of Dre and Snoop with chilled guitar riffs makes for an interesting recipe, but boy does he pull it off with amazing results. The final mention goes to a track that was easily predicted for the dojo the instant the artists’ names were read, as the combination of Follow Me and Satin Jackets was always going to be a shoe-in. It’s disco, laid-back, and everything this dojo’s about.
So no matter what’s on the agenda for the week ahead, this edition is one dose of relaxation to enjoy whenever you want. Peace out.
