[NEW] St. Vincent – Birth In Reverse

St. Vincent
Birth In Reverse

The new year is still a few weeks away, but we already have something to look forward to heading into 2014. Today fans were pleased to hear that Annie Clark, aka St. Vincent, is preparing to release her self-titled fourth studio album on February 25th, 2014. If this effort is anything like 2011′s Strange Mercy, we’re in for a real treat. Luckily for us, we have our first glimpse of the project with the fabulous new single, “Birth In Reverse.”

Like the accompanying album art, the track is far edgier than her previous work, with an ecstatic energy pulsing through it that’ll instantly have your hips swaying to the infectious melody. Of the record Clark stated, “I knew the groove needed to be paramount. I wanted to make a party record you could play at a funeral.” We’re not exactly sure what that means, but if anyone could achieve that sound, it’s her. Grab a free copy of the single above (in exchange for an email address), and stay tuned for more releases after we close the books on 2013.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #65

chill dojo

Anytime a new Bondax track is released, you just know it’s going to be a good week for the Chill Dojo. That together with all the other amazing tunes in our playlist again prove that to be the truth for this edition.

As for the song in question, ‘Fires’ opens in a majestic fashion as can be expected from the prodigious UK duo. The stunning vocals of Josh Record make the opening minute a simple joy to listen to. And then there’s what comes next. Words actually can’t do it justice. You’ll just have to listen for yourself. Is there even a point in trying to describe what Bondax do? We do need to include something in this write-up though, so instead we can talk about the smooth stylings of Cherokee and their work on this Amerie classic. As we’ve been taught numerous times before, this seasoned French duo have a way with funk, and the bassline on this remix will quickly have you under its spell. While we’re high on this groovy feeling, let’s kick things up a notch with this absolute jam from another Frenchman in Jean Tonique. There are some things that the French just do better, so there’s no way to decipher how exactly he has made this fresh Jay-Z remix so goddamn funky. You’ll be too busy in a state of uncontrollable dancing to even care anyway. Now this dojo isn’t known for posting a whole lot of progressive house, but every so often there’ll be a special tune we come across with the perfect vibe for what we stand for. MaHi’s latest release is a prime example of this, with ‘Wake Up’ providing dreamy melodies and an uplifting feeling that just needed to be shared. Since the dojo’s first beginnings, we’ve seen plenty of unknown chill producers set the blogosphere alight with a consistent stream of amazing music. One of the hottest names right now is Kygo, and this week we were given another reason to be heaping praise on the young Norwegian. No stranger to the top of the Hypem charts, Kygo has quickly scaled them once more with this beautiful take on Ed Sheeran’s ‘I See Fire’. His charming melodies and infectious percussion are once again on full display for another track to be replayed again and again. And if you still can’t get enough, check out edit from DJ AA for a different blend. We could keep writing about this week’s additions forever, but we’ll keep things short so you have more time to enjoy the newest jams from our favourite beatmakers like Mr. Carmack, IAMNOBODI, and Flofilz.

Enough talk, more chilling. Peace out

It’s the first weekend of December, meaning I, like most of you out there, spent my Sunday stuck inside watching the snowflakes gently trickle down to the ground. Being trapped indoors isn’t always a bad thing however. At least you now have an excuse to huddle around the fireplace as you listen to the latest edition of Sunday Night Soul (if you don’t have a fireplace, a space heater will have to do). This edition is packed further to the brim than that mug of piping hot cocoa you’re gripping onto right now, with tasty selections from some of the most talented singers from across the web. It’s hard to pick a favorite from this crop, but I’d like to point your attention to offerings from newcomers Snoh Aalegra, Rosie LoweDrew Love, and SPZRKT.

[Tech House] Oliver Heldens – Gecko

Oliver Heldens
Gecko (Preview)

Dutch producer Oliver Helden has brought a fresh new sound to Tiesto’s Musical Freedom label, and simply put, we’re grinning ear to ear. Not that we have a problem with trance, electro house or progressive house, but it’s nice to see a spotlight on a really solid tech house tune. Without the use of vocals, a beautiful melody or devastating drops, “Gecko,” crawls under your skin in the best way. It has one of those infectious beats that demands your presence on the dance floor, and we can pretty much guarantee that you’re going to oblige its siren call.

This tune is out just in time for your New Year’s Eve celebrations, dropping December 30th. Mark your calendar.
