Atlas Genius – Trojans (Lenno Remix)

With all the amount of professionalism I want to bring to this blog, I can’t help myself on saying how stupidly amazing this new remix of “Trojans” is, by the magnificent 17-year-old producer Lenno. Already an amazing track featuring vocals from Keith Jeffrey of the South Australia indie rock band Atlas Genius. The group was recently signed to Warner Bros. Records and on June of this year they released their debut EP, titled Through the Glass.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #2

Weekdays are for grinding, Saturdays are for raging, and Sundays were made to just sit back and chill. There couldn’t be a simpler recipe to life than that, and there couldn’t be a simpler way to assemble a perfect Sunday playlist than the second instalment of the Chill Dojo. Following up on the standard set by the inaugural edition, another host of pleasant tunes await for all those who have waited all week for some serious downtime.

Shook again features amongst the standout tracks for this dojo with the recent release of his remix for jazz/soul singer Rhian Benson. The smooth lyrics are complemented beautifully by the production here, and there’s no doubt that Shook will be a prominent name in future chill collections. Major Lazer’s ‘Get Free’ already defines serenity when it comes to music, and the original is pretty close to untouchable where remixes are concerned. Nevertheless, Puerto Rican producer Mendez has managed to craft a stunning rework which brings a little more danceability while still retaining all the elements that make the original perfect. Finally, to mix in a bit of bass to your chill experience, Cry Wolf offer us a remix of ‘Ballad Of Broken Birdie Records’ that could well be the soundtrack to your dreams tonight. Have a peek at the video of the live edit to be further amazed at the quality of the production behind this one. In addition to that, there are plenty of soulful tunes to be discovered here, both old and new, so kick back and enjoy. As always, don’t be afraid to follow those links to what may just reveal a free download. Peace out.

[Liquid Step] Ellie Goulding – Hanging On (Draper Remix)

Liquid Step, WTF is that? Well just listen and you’ll see, but it’s pretty much Love Step or Chill Step, but in Liquid form of course. Draper absolutely murders this ultra sexy remix of Ellie Goulding‘s indie anthem “Hanging On”. Adding some subtle but still very impressive wobbles that enhance this melodic track in all the right ways. This track wouldn’t be complete without some epic vocal work, and it features some flawless splicing at all the right times. This a collab I could only dream about until now, so all we need is for Adventure Club to remix this track and then my life will officially be complete. Cheers.
