Diving into new music was a huge part of my 2013. And Soundcloud was my go-to tool for discovering new sounds, artists and labels. This month the sounds are all about the chill: getting your mind in the right place to make the right moves in the smoothest ways. There’s tons of tracks from R&B/soul crooners hailing from the UK like Sasha Keable, Francis Lung and Anushka. Some sexy remixes of Disclosure and Robert Glasper by my Soundcloud favorite, Kaytranada. A few full mixes for you music discovery junkies – one from electro/glitch producer Machinedrum, hosted by OAKNYC and one from THUMP‘s Built for the Chill series mixed by Elias Mazian for Vol. 1 – straight classics (you’ve got to check out the other Built for the Chill mixes, so smooth.)
I had to add in a few deep house/nudisco bangers in there to keep things interesting. A Little BICEP making you move with “Satisfy” and “Love of My Love” by Stage Rockers which also appears on the Deep Style Session mix I included by Chris Jylkke, because it’s even better the second time around. Jump into the playlist for the month of January below. I’ll be publishing these each month. Tell me what you thought in the comments below. Oh, and what are you listening to on Soundcloud?
