When it comes to selecting tracks for our Chill Dojo playlist, there are a few instruments which can instantly grab our attention, and the pan flute is one we have a very soft spot for. Add to that superb sax, magical female vocals and a groovy beat and you’ve pretty much sealed the deal. If you happened to catch this feature on Felix Jaehn’s ‘Shine’, there would be no surprise in seeing it top the list for this edition. Together with countryman Freddy Verano and the songwriting prowess of Linying, this combination of musical perfection is the perfect way to get summer started. Matoma sat atop last week’s playlist, and true to our predictions he is back in no time at all with that Norwegian sound we just can’t get enough of. This time he’s gotten together with his friend Nelsaan to craft an uplifting tribute to the John Mayer original. The song may be about free falling, but the hype behind this artist is only going to continue as each release consistently outdoes the last. Once we’re on that tropical vibe, it’s really hard to shake, so we’re going to keep that going with some bright summer disco courtesy of That’s Nice on the remix of this recent Keljet release. Whether it’s a huge pool party or a quiet outing with friends, this track is built to be a weekend anthem and the fuel to your good times. Sweden’s Tobtok has featured in the Chill Dojo for this same reason plenty of times before, and he is back once more with another piece of smooth paradise in his latest remix of ‘Catch’. Tropical soundscapes and uplifting vocals seem to be the theme of edition #87 so far, and there’s plenty more sweetness for your ears where that came from.

Next up it’s Bono’s turn as Belgian producer Henri Pfr and Chicago’s Kiso forge a U2 remix whose power goes far beyond the lyrics alone. This edit is pure feels, wrapped in a bed of floating chords and care-free feelings. Lana Del Rey’s lyrics usually go down a different route of melancholy, but as always we love to hear music which can flip all expectations on its head. That’s exactly what we have hear with Stint’s take on ‘West Coast’, stripping back the brooding  original to reveal a cheery side you wouldn’t see coming. Complete with whistle solo, this is all kinds of chill, the likes of which we haven’t heard before. And speaking of new directions, we are loving how Austrian DnB duo Camo & Krooked have been expanding their musical repertoire into a more laid-back style of late. Their remix of the Klangkarussell original puts their refreshing liquid sound on full display, and we’re looking forward to seeing plenty more of this in the near future.

But that’s only scratching the surface of what is on offer this week, so make sure to dig all the way down to discover all the treasures we’ve got for you here. Peace out.
