After all the hype around the big game, whether it’s coming down after massive celebrations or getting over a bitter defeat, a dose of chill music is always a clever play. This week’s edition begins with a track that under normal circumstances would have no right headlining any form of laid-back playlist. But we deal in unique selections here, and so this flip of the iconic ‘Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites’ is the perfect fit to get things going with that future feel. The teamwork of StéLouse and Ahh-ooh is bursting with color and creativity, transporting the classic heavy-hitter into the new era of electronic music, celebrating bright melodies that make us grin from ear to ear. It’s proof that no matter how many times a song undergoes the remix treatment, there are always artists out there with the ability to re-imagine things in a whole new way. That holds true for the next glorious release from French duo Basic Tape, elevating ‘Heroes’ into a whole new level of feel-good status. Where the original seems to utilize the vocals as pure buildup to the drop, the funky chords shine a new light on the anthemic lyrics and ensure they’re not lost amongst the standard formula of EDM. While it could be argued that this is the way that the booming tropical house genre has headed, there’s still hope that innovation in this style hasn’t died hard just yet. Norway’s Matoma is one artist still flying the flag and producing the vibes we’re happy to have in our ears. His latest installment of remix goodness is a fresh take on the Jay Z classic, crafting the sweet summer sounds that have inspired him since the very beginning.

It hasn’t taken long for Dojo favorite jackLNDN to pop up in the playlist once again, this time bringing his silky touch to a soulful original from Austrian songwriter James Hersey. In signature fashion, his treatment is here is all class, laying down another deep groove steeped in palpable emotion. While we’re indulging our softer side, shmallen has done us the courtesy of bringing back some vintage 90’s RnB with his rework of ‘Too Close’. Either through the power of nostalgia or just the infectious funk, this track will have you taken over by dance fever one way or the other. This week’s write-up wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the amazing free EP that Louis Futon gifted to all his fans. Fortunately for us, that included a number of quality chill inclusions that feel right at home in edition 119.

So whatever the outcome was for you, make sure to soak up these vibes as the perfect post-match routine. Peace out.
