Some places have the weather, some have the beaches, and some have the never-ending party vibe, but Norway has now cemented itself as the home of summer as far as music is concerned. We’ve heard the amazing tropical stylings of both Kygo and Bearson throughout the year so far, but this magical land has made our jaw drop once again with another talented artist in Matoma. It doesn’t take long to realize that the 22 year old has a serious skill for composition, and every one of his productions is soaked in good vibes and just oozes happiness. He knows his way around an acapella as well, as these remixes of ‘Old Thing Back’ and ‘Higher Love’ will show, but be sure to check out his whole Soundcloud for plenty more material to throw straight into your latest summer playlist. It’s been a while since our latest dose of Snakehips, and this week we’ve been blessed with some of that production we know and love alongside some flawless vocal work from Sinead Harnett. The soulful songstress has worked alongside names like Disclosure and Ryan Hemsworth in recent times, but her blissful style just feels right at home over this bed of warm sultry groove. Consider us well and truly addicted. Peking Duk’s anthem ‘High’ has achieved a similar effect worldwide since it’s release, but it’s this vibe-filled version from Yahtzel that has got us hooked all over again. Whether it’s belting out the familiar lyrics or just bopping along to the infectious beat, this is a remix guaranteed to have waves of summer festival-goers under its complete control. We’re shifting from the festival stage to the heated dance-floor now, because Frenchman Darius has once again cooked up another killer piece of funk in his take on MØ’s ‘Don’t Wanna Dance’. But it really doesn’t matter what you want to do, because there’s no stopping your body from moving to this crazy groove, and there’s nothing that can prepare for you for the absolute eargasm that happens at 1:50. That’s way too hot to handle!!

We’re far from done yet though, because we’ve got some new Tobtok to add to the mix as well, so be expecting another big serve of the tropics to inject some joy into your day. This smile-inducing remix of the Zak Waters original will turn around even the darkest day into something worth celebrating, so lose yourself in this feel-good atmosphere of chill goodness. Zak’s been busy doing his own remix work lately as well, and we just love how well his vocals for ‘Over You’ meld so well with the timeless Breakbot classic. And because we love highlighting talent that you just have to hear in the Chill Dojo, we end the write-up with a big shout out to this jam from Kyle Hallam. We don’t know much other than the fact he hails from the warm climate of Australia’s northeast coast, but ‘Deep’ is as fresh as it gets, so that is enough to keep us satisfied for the time being. We see you Kyle.

Alright that wraps it up for another week, but your job is far from done after reading this. Get amongst it! Peace out.
