[Electro Soul] Banks – Fall Over

Last month we featured the sultry vocals and electronic prowess of Los Angeles’ own Banks and her track “Before I Met You”. This week we get treated to another piece of new material in the form of “Fall Over”. Wild, warped and invigorating from start to finish, it’s the type of song that waves its hands in the air uncontrollably, but confidently, like an untamed, yet highly-advanced creature of music. The more we hear from her, the more we’re certain she’ll be a name to reckon with in 2013.

Local Natives – Heavy Feet (WALL Remix)

Compelling London singer-songwriter WALL — who we’ve spotlighted for her original work on “Shoestring” and “No Secrets” — is back, but this time in a reworking capacity. She takes hold of Local Natives‘ standout track “Heavy Feet”, remixing and giving it thick, syrupy new textures. Despite the cloudy atmospheric synths, WALL never loses sight of the Los Angeles band’s signature harmonies; they still shine through the hazy fuzz in a soothing, and almost triumphant way. Check it out/download it below.

[Indie] Farewell J.R – Night Wolves

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…

[Electro Pop] TOKiMONSTA – Go With It ft MNDR

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.

Jamie Lidell – What A Shame (RL Grime & Salva Remix) [Trap Anthem]

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.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #27

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.
