This week we celebrate the spirit of collaboration, sharing and musical inspiration in the form of Mothica’s Mythic EP and the amazing remixes that came about as a result of her releasing the acapellas for the world to re-imagine. The first feature from Kayge Calypso and DUNN elects to finely slice the vocals, piecing them together with key lyrical moments from the original track and a breathtakingly beautiful acoustic atmosphere. The outcome is a sound that is like butter to the ears. In much the same fashion, this next interpretation of ‘Hand Grenade’ is another gorgeous display of intricate vocal chops, this time infuzed with mellow future vibes that have us floating on a wave of carefree feelings. It’s not often we get a chance to talk about artists hailing from the small island of New Caledonia, but if this effort is anything to go by, Koyö may have just put it on the map for 2016.
Next up we have the same track taken in a very different direction, with a pair of Swedes in Native and Lost going for a deeper house-driven approach that will soothe your soul and ease you into your Monday in the best way possible. Outside of these stunning Mothica-inspired discoveries, another golden find for the week was courtesy of Vancouver’s Syre, releasing a short yet ever so sweet jam called ‘Sizzle’. It’s simple, fresh and fun, which is often all you need to create a tune that is very much at home within our humble Dojo abode.
But it’s nothing without people to share it with, so we hope you enjoy this and all the rest. Peace out!
