It’s always an exciting week for the Chill Dojo when new Snakehips hits the blogosphere. Couple that with the fact that it’s a remix of The Weeknd no less, and you better believe it caught our attention immediately. It’s been too long since our last hit of that signature sound from the UK act, and luckily this track is everything and more. If that’s not enough, it comes with the promise of more music to come which is no doubt the best news we’ve heard all week. More music to our ears for edition #74 was a new dose of funk from La Felix, backing up his outrageously infectious remix of DCUP’s ‘Don’t Be Shy’ with another spin on his latest catchy release ‘Someone Told Me’. There was certainly high expectations riding on this one given his previous effort, and it’s safe to say he’s raised the bar once again. Don’t sleep on the original either, cos the groovy Australian sure knows how to make a jam you won’t soon forget.  Another name that’s been missing from the dojo for a while is London’s MJ Cole, so consider this edition a reunion with his trademark flow. Those keys just ooze a smoothness and summer vibe we can’t get enough of. Rhye’s ‘Open’ has seen it’s fair share of mellow interpretations in past playlists, but it would be hard to argue against Wiley Webb’s as the chillest so far. The masterfully crafted tempo combined with the sensual ebbs and flows make for the perfect addition to any bedroom soundtrack. It’s time for a generous helping of beats now as we introduce Sydney’s Paisley as a new name amongst our ever growing list of favourite beatmakers. It’s not a decision made in haste either, as one listen to his arsenal of laid back dopeness will more than prove he can hold his own. Better still, he releases new material at a Mr.Carmack-like rate. Yes, that is a legitimate measure of frequency, and if you’re not convinced then we have a new one from the maestro himself too.

It feels like a second Christmas with all these big names returning with more chill greatness. Don’t wait any longer to unwrap the goods. Peace out
