Back with the heavy droned synth, Dom enlists Tyga and Juicy J to talk about their types of parties — drugs, girls, and of course haters. Filled with one-liners that you would expect from the three rappers this song trumps it’s predecessor. The highlight is when the beat shuts down for Juicy to get trippy until the tambourine (or drum snare) gets the song on it’s feet. All in all it’s a great song to bump on a fall drive.
Seattle’s own Thaddeus David released his debut solo LP early last week once again showcasing the Northwest’s budding hip-hop scene. On Trapital Trill, David draws in features and production from fellow up ‘n comers Nacho Picasso, Avatar Young Blaze, DJ Semaj and Keyboard Kid to give us an original and encompassing look at the region’s sound. While the feel is undeniably west coast, this project helps distinguish and define Seattle’s emerging scene.
This project is a perfect dose of laid-back music for your lazy Sunday. Stream all the tracks below and grab a free download here: Thaddeus David – Trapital Trill.
When settling into your Sunday afternoon, could there be anything better than 10 of the chillest tracks of the week flowing through your speakers? The answer is yes, and that’s 15 of the best chill tracks. Last week’s post highlighted the steady stream of mellow tunes floating across the web lately, providing plenty of sources for amazing music. Well that stream has turned into a flood, so this dojo is now 50% more chill for even greater value on the best damn day of the week.
This playlist sees everything coming in pairs. Our first two tracks provide some gorgeous chillstep, with UK producer Isoline receiving the prestigious track-of-the-week honours for his absolutely beautiful remix of ‘Youth’. The acoustic elements over the hypnotic vocals are a seriously magical combination that will see the replay button hit repeatedly for a while to come. Things then speed up with two funky nu-disco jams courtesy of Two Moons and Le Nonsense who inject some welcome french touch into this week’s edition. As always, it wouldn’t be the Chill Dojo without a splash of summer, brought to you this time by RotKraft’s enchanting take on one of Goldroom’s best, and a nautical instrumental from UK disco fiend Edwin van Cleef. Next up are two different yet equally chill interpretations of Flume’s ”Sleepless” by Australian artists, Brisbane producer Charles Murdoch going for a more future garage style while Sydney’s Cosmo&Paat take the chillstep route. Also within the mix of pairs in this instalment come two takes on Strange Talk’s ”Cast Away” by Vindata and Plastic Plates, another duo of remixes of The xx, and a couple of classic Skream tracks recently released as part of his 100k Freeizm EP. We couldn’t find a suitable partner for our final feature, but fortunately Ray Complex produces a quality tune that should satisfy your trap desire all on its own.
So grab the extra beefy zip of free downloads below and don’t forget to check out last week’s dojo if you missed all the freebies from edition 1 until now. Peace out.

Kendrick Lamar continues to destroy the hip-hop game letting loose a lyrically powerful track with an old school feel featuring two of his fellow talented Black Hippy members, Ab-Soul and Jay Rock. “The Heart Pt. 3″ is an introspective and emotional cut, on which Lamar and co. reminisce about their rise to fame. Kendrick exudes confidence even while admitting his own doubts and second-guessing as his voice becomes raspier and more expressive through out. Soul and Jay Rock hold their own on the track showing why they are two of the most underrated emcees out. Do yourself a favor and grab this awesome free treat below. Good Kid m.A.A.d. City hits stores Monday, October 22nd.

Philadelphia based genius Diplo drops a massive remix of Calvin Harris and Florence Welch‘s anthem “Sweet Nothing”. He reworks the original melody with a subtle but infectious edit, that allows you to fall in love with this tune all over again. The vocal work is nothing short of amazing with Diplo tweaking and chopping all the best parts of Florence’s sexy voice. This is a rip from Annie Mac Show on BBC Radio 1, no news on the release date. Cheers.
Sweet Nothing (Diplo & Grandtheft Trapstyle Remix)

Rising American electronic producer, MitiS, is back again with yet another outstanding melodic dubstep original. “In My Eyes” is an exceptional lovestep track featuring MitiS’ whimsical synths, fanciful piano melodies and the perfect amount of bass. MitiS gave this track out for free after gaining 11,000 likes on Facebook so I highly suggest you download this spectacular free tune and more importantly keep an eye on MitiS, this guy is going big places. Enjoy.
