New to Chill, May 19 2018

What’s on your mind this weekend – weddings, weeding, or just chilling? We’re adding 30 new tunes to help. If you would like to suggest anything we should be playing, you can email music@helpmechill.com

Hotel Neon – Means Of Knowing

This trio from Philadelphia makes sublime ambient music, most of which we can only play after midnight (don’t listen while operating heavy machinery…), but we’ll also be playing “Essential Nature” across the day.

 

Solomon Grey – Clouds

You may recognise this from the BBC series “The Last Post”.

Daisuke Miyatani – Diario

Next week sees a re-issue of this incredibly chilled construction of ambiences, acoustic instruments and found sounds. We’re mostly playing the album after midnight, and the track “Summer Child” will soothe you through the day too.

 

Liminal Drifter – The Dreams

Dr. Simon Order is an academic genius based in Western Australia after decades of music production work in the UK. He’s found some chilled places in his new album, out soon – here is one of the tracks we’re playing.

 

Oatmello – No Way Back

Producer Oatmello from Portland makes lo fi, chillhop-style beats.

New to Chill, May 12 2018

Whatever the weather does for you this weekend, you’ll find tunes to help you feel good on Chill, including these new ones. If you would like to suggest anything we should be playing, you can email music@helpmechill.com

Maribou State – Turnmills

Chris Davids and Liam Ivory are masters of fusing organic and electronic beats with art and soul, and they will be touring festivals with new material to make the soundrack to your chilled summer. We’re playing this new track as well as classics from their 2015 album Portraits.

 

TPOT – Hypericum

This is Swedish chill from Olle Thulin and Per Thuresson, full of swirly and shimmering textures and pads. The album is released on May 22nd.

 

Gold Lounge – Floating

Italy-based Michelle Effe’s first new Gold Lounge album in six years comes out on June 1st. Many of the tracks we are previewing are not yet released or online, but you’ll hear them across the day on Chill.

 

Halftribe – For The Summer, Or Forever

Some of what we play is too chilled even for us in the daytime, but perfect after midnight. This is when you will hear us playing Ryan Bisset’s latest ethereal collection before it’s released on May 18th.

New to Chill, May 5 2018

We’re feeling good about Bank Holiday weekend, and have a stack of feelgood tunes to match. If you would like to suggest anything we should be playing, you can email music@helpmechill.com

Birocratic – Zesty Surprise

This one sums up the general mood nicely. It’s laid back, but with an irresistible smile-inducing funkiness.

 

b l u e s c r e e n – synchro//start – 前駆

This retro-infused collection of lo-fi grooves from Contemporary Tapes shipped on limited edition hand dubbed cassettes last week. Now it’s digitally available, we can share it without having to find our tape head cleaning fluid, cotton buds and pencil. We’ll be playing “I’m Gone And Forever Yours” and “Software_update:self_ver.77.7” across the day.

 

String Theory – Dirty High

The Glaswegian duo have made “a symphony of modular synthesis, swelling strings and the bounciest drums we’ve heard in a long time,” according to their new label, Rhythm Section. We think it might just grab your head and make you swing and smile.

 

Robot Koch – Love Your Home & Hideaway

It’s not all party, party, party here – we’ve also found some beautiful, reflective music from the German-born, Los Angeles-based cinematic composer Robot Koch. We’re playing a couple of our favourites from his recent releases.
