In what sounds like a glorious clash between Cashmere Cat and Wave Racer, the intriguing young producer Kappa Kavi begins this week’s proceedings in the best way possible. ‘Yama – No – Kami’ is a hard one to describe, and that’s what makes it such a good listen. Hit play and let the oriental flare and pitch bending take over your ears for the next 5 minutes. And when that’s done, the candy continues with the best news all week, Ryan Hemsworth doing the remix duties on ‘Streamers’. Great things happen when friends come together, and if the result of this friendship is more amazing edits of each other’s work, then we are pretty damn happy it exists. We were spoilt for choice with incredible releases this week, and smooth Frenchman Darius absolutely took our breath away with the sultry delight of the Romance EP. Peep the three tracks we’ve featured below and it won’t take long for you to feel the same. ‘Hot Hands’ still has this listener very much under its spell. Ellie Goulding’s voice can often have the same effect, and when combined with the efforts of duo J-Art & Madan, it becomes a dangerously captivating weapon. Tropical tunes are always are winner with this dojo. They fuel our desire for that endless summer feeling, and this week the two Frenchman keep that flame burning bright. UK talent Maths Time Joy has been a common name in the playlist for a long time now, but ‘Atlantis’ is no doubt his biggest statement to date. It’s slow, soothing, spellbinding, and that’s just in the 40 seconds before the vocals kick in complete the whole experience. We are well and truly infatuated with this sound. Many feel the same way for that authentic hip hop sound, and Australian artist Coin Banks combines with a Vanilla beat to bring the vibes that only slick verses and chill production can create. ‘Hold on, We’re Going Home’ spawned a flood of covers in 2013, and none nailed it quite as well as that from duo ASTR. Not satisfied with merely enjoying their work on its own, Tim Gunter has sought to expand on the magic and weave his own special touch into the mix. The result is a track taken to the next level of chill, and that certainly had our attention.

It’s very hard to describe music that can mesmerize you with such intensity. Luckily, all you have to do is hit play. Peace out.
