New to Chill, June 30 2018

We’ve got a big cup full of world music to enjoy this weekend. Here are our latest additions. If you would like to suggest anything we should be playing, you can email music@helpmechill.com

L’Indécis – Passage

Summery electric piano-driven chillhop from Grenoble, at the chilled foot of the French Alps, where apres-ski season is in full swing.

 

Ben Preston – Beatrix

Ben is an English soundtrack composer whose music travels the world – you may have heard some on ads for TVs, for example. Here is his latest tune.

 

Bass Physics & Eliot Lipp – Best Of Luck

Chilled soundscape from collaborators who are spending their summer touring the United States – read more at their Soundcloud page.

 

Meteologist – IMD II

Maybe the most chilled tune yet from glitch musician Meteologist on the French Riviera. You can name your price for most of his tunes from Bandcamp.

 

Tunng – Crow

Festival folktronica favourites Tunng have put out this soothing acoustic song in advance of their new album “Songs You Make At Night”, due in August.

Alucidnation – Paracosmic
