It’s a stress-busting edition of feel-good tunes for dojo number 78, so welcome the grind with open arms knowing we’ve got the perfect playlist to get you through. Soulful blues singer/songwriter Kelvin Jones has very quickly shot to internet fame in 2014 with his display of talent across a number of covers and originals. ‘Call You Home’ has been without a doubt his greatest success, attracting not only mass viewership but also inspiring deep house edits from around Europe which will only grow his exposure further. Norway’s Jam Couche and Germany’s Felix Jaehn have teamed up to transform this into a summer-ready anthem, bolstering the appeal of the original with a charming melody lead by none other than the xylophone. We’ve sung the praises of this underrated instrument before, and it’s something which will instantly propel a track into this playlist without a second listen. Between this and the gorgeous acoustics of MOWE’s popular bootleg edition, we just couldn’t separate them. We’re happy to give the Austrian duo equal share of the props for these two stunning interpretations. There are a few hidden treasures when it comes to the artists featured this week, and none more so than Lobo, Hailing from the UK, this young producer is one we’d put money on seeing in many future playlists this year. Take a listen to the nu-disco jam ‘Wonder Be Free’ and you’ll tend to agree, he’s got the recipe for a slick chill tune down pat. There’s no questioning the skills of dojo favourite Galimatias when it comes to this area, and when you combine this with the melodic firepower of Haywyre, it’s guaranteed sparks will fly. This comes in the form of the dangerously funky ‘Voice of Reason’, which flaunts a goosebump-inducing vibe and mesmerizing beat. Just an insanely good production hands down. But what’s a Chill Dojo without a dose of future sounds from down under? This week Perth’s Palace has us covered with some tropical heat in ‘Slow Burn’, which is just too damn catchy for it’s own good. You’ll be bouncing to this one all summer. We’re keeping that groove going though, because DJ AA is back and he’s brought with him an RnB blast from the past. His latest bootleg is a mash of hits from different times, taking vocals from the 90’s jam ‘My Love is the Shhh!’ and blending them seamlessly with Fakear’s excellent Flume remix. It doesn’t matter what generation you fancy, this bootleg specialist will find the perfect vocals to fit any chill music from today. If we had the time, we’d write up the entire playlist this week, but we can’t end proceedings without mentioning the glorious jazz-hop sounds of French beatmaker 20syl. Unique music is golden in this day and age, and the fact that we are amazed each and every week with talent like this is a gift.

It’s ours to share though, and spreading good music like this is what keeps us going every day. Peace out.
