Still Parade
Actors (Dinnerdate Remix)

There are some music lovers out there who just melt when it comes to slow, dreamy songs that ooze indie vibes and echo longing voices of lyrical ambiguity.  Then there are some who can appreciate the sentiment, but need a little more oomph before they can fully warm up to the feel the song is going for. For those of us in the second category, we have talented artists like Dinnerdate to help us out, with an ear for the right original to work their magic over, opening it up to an entirely new audience with their own musical preferences.

The beauty in this remix, other than the obvious elegance of the sound itself, is the fact that it caters to listeners in both of those categories, staying true enough to the original to satisfy this fan-base, but also working in its own touch for those craving a rhythmic beat to go with their serving of indie goodness. It’s the perfect balance of both worlds, and the perfect way for one of our favorite artists to break his period of relative silence over the last few months. For those wanting even more, there should be plenty more in the works from this name before the year is out. This will certainly help to tide us over until then.

Problem (Laura Zocca cover) (Chris Meid Remix)

Ever come across a remix that just works so magically well that you completely forget about how the original tune sounds like? Well we have one of those for you today. London-based producer Chris Meid released this remix of Laura Zocca‘s cover of Ariana Grande’“Problem”, in which he completely flips the track making it his own. Starting off with pleasant piano chords and a tropical synth line, the tune gradually brightens up your mood as it goes along. The skilled vocals from Zocca are definitely fitting for this tropical goodness Chris Meid creates.

Following his collaborative track with Felix Jaehn a while back, the talented producer is definitely making a name for himself by coming out with tunes like this one. We are excited to see what else Chris has up his sleeve. Stream above and head to Chris’s Facebook page for a free download.

California Gurls (Matt DiMona Remix)

After each and every weekend, it becomes extremely difficult to enter back into reality because all we really want to do is relive our blacked slurs from Saturday night. As we sluggishly get ourselves out of bed to suffer through yet another monotonous and mundane Monday, we realized that we needed that extra ‘oomf’ to not only cure this unbearable hangover, but to also lift our spirits and give us a reason to not slip into the negativity that Monday’s tend to project. Well ninjas, get ready to become a California girl for the day because we have the ultimate tropical remedy from Matt DiMona that will undoubtedly make you want to grab your bikini, sip on long island ice teas, and soak up the Cali sun in the middle of October.

The Los Angeles producer decided to take on the fun, highly addictive and intoxicating radio hit, “California Gurls” from none other than Katy Perry. Filled with subtle tropical elements, an adorable piano melody, and a whole lot of ambient vibes, Matt DiMona melts our popsicles and elevates our sun-kissed souls to heights unimaginable. We are extremely pleased to share the latest from Matt in the form of a premiere because he sure did tickle our inner Katy Perry to the point of no return. As we continue to indulge on these succulent frequencies, make sure you lather on the SPF and prepare for the ultimate third degree sunburn because it only gets hotter the more you play it. Grab this freebie while you can and simmer in these Summer vibes for the rest of your day…we guarantee you’ll be floating in the clouds.

The Chill Dojo #104

chill dojo

It’s a rather funky edition this week, but before we get the groove officially going, we couldn’t go passed this killer piece of freshness from Sweater Beats. The title track off his upcoming EP, ‘Cloud City’ may draw a few comparisons to Flume in its future trap elements, but the artist brings this into his own with an energizing melody that will inspire you to take whatever challenges the day brings head on. Now that we’ve got your attention, let’s direct that towards Hoodboi’s glorious rendition of the Lido anthem ‘I Love You’. Known for his heavy Jersey influence, this time he takes a lighter approach to the remix, opting for a floaty atmosphere that peaks at the iconic “shout at the top of your lungs” hook.

Now it’s officially funk time, and there’s no better song to bring this in than this absolute jam from the young Canadian Zanski. A warning though, hit play on this bad boy and you won’t be satisfied until you hear it another 10 times. The funk leads and Gambino’s bars are a match made in musical heaven, and the slick combination is completely seamless. Too good! It’s timely that in our edition of funk we’ve got a new one from the dojo favorite Snakehips. As you’d expect, it’s just the right mix of soul and dance-ability to hit all the right spots and get a crowd moving as one. The feeling continues straight into this next one from LBCK, who have unleashed a theme song for an undying summer. Something about this song just screams skateboards and beaches, long nights and cool drinks, good friends and great times. It’s all feeling a bit nostalgic right now, but packaged amongst all the memories that this tune invokes is the excitement for what the next year’s season will bring. And you better believe this will be playing when that time comes around again.

Until then, there will be plenty more weeks of chill vibes like these to tide you over. Peace out.

[NEW] Drake – How About Now

DRAKE
Drake
How About Now

Earlier today, a teenager from Marietta, Georgia managed to get his hands on a copy of a Drake song titled “How About Now,” and uploaded it to his personal SoundCloud. Though it’s still unclear how he obtained a copy of the tune, everything about it appears to be authentic. As expected, details surrounding the track are still murky, but the kid claims the song belongs to Drake’s upcoming album, Views From The 6. However, others are speculating that it might be a leftover from Nothing Was The Same.

Building off of a sample of Jodeci‘s hit “My Heart Belongs To You,” this new leak finds Drizzy lamenting to an old flame about her lack of support for his career back in his early days, while asking how she feels about him now that he’s made it big. The track also features a cameo from Nicki Minaj who plays the part of the ex leaving a voicemail at the beginning of the song. If it is in fact unreleased, our guess is issues with sample clearances prevented this from seeing the light of day. Either way, enjoy the tune above, and keep on the lookout for some official releases from Aubrey in the near future.
