June is finally upon us and with it comes months of guaranteed chill Summer tunage. That’s not to say that the colder months left us in any short supply, but there’s something about this season that elevates this music to another level.
Our first track is the prime example as Snakehips goes next level with an edit to his upbeat hit ‘On & On’. Just when you thought the original couldn’t get any better, the UK beatmaker adds a fresh touch which shines with pure happiness. We’re not done with this track yet though, because Kaytranada has also lent his skills to his own remix with an infectious deep sound and old-school hip hop beat. And as if to set a trend, Le Youth also revisited his own material with a slowed-down, sexed-up version of ‘C O O L’ which just oozes that classic R&B flavour. It’s the first of many baby-making Summer specials to come, that’s for sure. Another certain thing about the Chill Dojo in the months ahead is that it’ll definitely feature plenty of Goldroom, with all the tropical stylings we can’t get enough of. TMN already covered the producer’s latest remix of Owl Eyes, but we’re throwing another one into the mix with a tropical-infused edit of his original ‘Angeles’ courtesy of the appropriately named Palm & Trees. And we couldn’t let this write-up end without bringing to light a remix from yet another dojo favourite in Shook, who recently released his downright funky take on Jamiroquai. It’s been two years sitting on this absolute gem, but we’re stoked it’s finally out for free download, and at the perfect time too!
It’s another edition loaded with those feel-good sensations, and this is only the beginning. We’re set for some of the most exciting weeks to come. Peace out!
