chillhop-winter2018

New to Chill, December 15 2018

It’s beginning to feel a bit like Christmas. From this weekend, we’re starting to include a few uniquely chilled festive tunes, along with lots of other joyful things to help you escape stress and enjoy the season. If you’ve found anything else we should be playing, you can email music@helpmechill.com

Chillhop Essentials – Winter 2018

It’s become a seasonal tradition to celebrate a new batch of Chillhop finds, and we’re playing our favourites from this compilation.

 

Gold Lounge – Spirals Rework

This Italian chillout producer has refreshed some classic tracks and snuck in a new one (available free from his page here) and they are making us feel comfy and revitalised at the same time.

 

Hiroshi Ebina – Bergen

This Japanese sound artist creates ambiences in New York inspired by chance encounters.

 

Annika Norlin – Correspondence: Silent Night

Has this Swedish songwriter made a Christmas classic about a Christmas classic? It’s worth a listen – we got very emotional about it…

 

Luke Sital-Singh – Love Is Hard Enough Without The Winter

We know – not every winter tune can be 100% joyous, but this one pulls warmth and beauty from frostiness.

 

Chris Rolinson – A Christmas Piano Meditation on Away In A Manger

Simple, classic, self explanatory – enjoy!

New to Chill, December 8 2018

Don’t wait for the holidays to chill. We can take you from the lounge to the coolest getaway destinations with our latest tunes this weekend. If you’ve found anything else we should be playing, you can email music@helpmechill.com

Limes – Slices EP

Let’s start with cocktails and lounge bar jazz piano on Limes’ latest slice of retro smoothness. We’re playing lots of these tracks on Chill.

 

Delayde – Old Hours

Continuing in the chillhop style, this set of tunes gets us into to the small town of Saltash, the gateway to Cornwall and home of Delayde.

 

Lars Lentz – Candle

This warm and reflective soundscape is the latest from Michigan’s Lars Lentz.

 

Snorri Hallgrímsson – Orbit Reworked

Even this composer’s name is beautifully evocative of Icelandic chill, don’t you think? He is a master of scoring and a long time collaborator with Ólafur Arnalds, working together on the music for ITV’s Broadchurch, for example. We’re playing this collection of chilled reimaginations of some of his finest tunes.

New to Chill, December 1 2018

December already? We need to relax for a bit before the holidays get hectic, so we’re adding lots of restful ambiences to Chill this weekend. If you’ve found anything else we should be playing, you can email music@helpmechill.com

Bruno Sanfilippo – Subliminal Pulse

We agree with Sonic Immersion who wrote that “the intrinsic pulsations within Sanfilippo’s soaring mood music create a sense of awe…”

 

H.takahashi – Low Power

This Tokyo based architect and sound engineer has elegantly constructed a simple house to chill in.

 

Chronotope Project – Lotus Rising

This ambient electronica is a series of reflections on Zen Buddhism, from a composer who is a thirty year Zen practitioner.

 

Alberto Giurioli – Nightfall

A beautiful new piece from this Italian pianist and composer.

 

Sid Sriram – It Isn’t True

Couldn’t resist throwing this one song into the mix, from an Indian music producer and performer who is gaining fans around the world.

New to Chill, November 24 2018

How do you fancy an extra chilled weekend? We’d love to spend it with you, and we’ve brought some new tunes round to enjoy. If you’ve found anything else we should be playing, you can email music@helpmechill.com

Benjamin Francis Leftwich – Gratitude

From the York singer-songwriter’s upcoming third album, this is a gently uplifting song about finding pleasure and purpose in simple things. We love it.

 

Aeris Roves – Comfortable

One of our favourite emerging artists this year, the smooth and assured vocals on this track make us feel very comfortable indeed.

 

Monma, Misha & Jussi Halme – Brazil

An award winning jazz pianist meets chillhop producers and magically transports us to South America. Somehow. It’s joyous.

 

mommy x Philanthrope – Inaudible

A collaboration fusing chilled beats with the sounds of acoustic guitars and rainy days. We’re playing lots of songs from this deeply relaxing album.

 

Skinshape – I Didn’t Know

Skinshape brings old school soul together with folk and rock influences to make music with satisfying depth and sometimes surprising twists – stick around for the lush instruments which come in near the end…

 

Emmit Fenn – Yellow

Couldn’t resist adding this chilled cover. It’s not acoustic as you might expect, but gloriously synthetic and chilled to perfection by Emmit’s beautiful voice.

New to Chill, November 17 2018

So, how has your work week been? If you’re feeling the need to chill, we’ve got a song full of cat purrs, an ambient soundtrack that makes the news feel better, and lots more chilled finds. If you’ve found anything else we should be playing, you can email music@helpmechill.com

H.E.R. – I Used To Know Her – Part 2

The wilfully mysterious Gabriella Wilson chose the stage name H.E.R. (“Having Everything Revealed”) to make her work more about the music than the stardom. It’s beautifully chilled RnB, and we are playing a few tracks like this one.

 

Chris Coco Sacha Puttnam – The Beauty Is In The Falling (EP)

World famous producer of many chilled tunes and the Melodica show (every weekend on Chill!), Chris Coco has made some experimental ambient music which just keeps growing on us.

 

H.1 – Again

The Chillhop sound has become a global phenomenon. This tune shows how they are chilling with it in Italy.

 

Urban City Vibes Vol. 1

Showing that this sound has spread way beyond one label and a couple of continents, we’re playing our favourites from this new collection from Urban Orange Music.

 

Artist Choice 062: Jero Nougues (Chillout Selection)

On a more ambient theme, we’re loving this new collection of imaginative chilled tunes. Check track 9, Pollewop, in particular if you’re at all put at ease by cat purrs…

 

Chihei Hatakeyama – Afterimage

It’s hard to get any more chilled than these tunes which we’ll playing after midnight, especially the long final track, “Afterimage” itself. Serving suggestion: try listening to it while watching the news. We did, and found ourselves MUCH more chilled!
