Just like the title implies, SPELLWRKS is here to deliver a new super-chill album aptly titled, “Super Chill“. This 23-song collection is a lot like a sample plate of beats that you can take your pick and listen to on repeat for hours. Although these tracks took me out of my comfort zone style-wise since they are far more akin to a hip-hop vibe than a pure chillout take, but they still satisfy the need within me for some relaxing tunes. Some tracks even sample older soul songs, and I particularly enjoyed “Old City”, despite its brevity. Overall, I have a new artist to add to my downloads.

With their very first release, Nashville artist Klept released “Loss“, a 7-track chillout EP. It’d be tough to argue these tracks aren’t very soothing to the mind, but what interests me more is the story behind them all. The song titles are obvious hints to something devastating that the artist is going through, but without much information, it becomes a mystery. I can’t help but put these songs on repeat and wonder what inspired such music. The vibe just chills the bones and gives me an urge to stargaze on a lonely hill or walk through a garden at midnight. It’s all just very beautiful music and hard to believe that this is the first release from this new artist. I recommend downloading this whole album here where you can name your price.
:DFace comes back to us with his newest weekly banger; “Words“, a bipolar track bringing hints of multiple genres to the table. A jack-of-all-trades with elements of a trap banger, moombahton, and chillout, all with a heavy bassline as a foundation during the heavy drop. I particularly like how some parts of the song will dip out of way for a sudden silence before the beat comes back in a jump like a low rider in a car hopping contest. Free download here.
Packed with a new three-song EP and ready for adventure, Ramzoid brings us “Green“; a chillout trap style akin to exploring the open world. At only seventeen years old, this Canadian producer dropped these swooning beats with a chillout vibe, yet backed with heavy drums for a head-grooving beat. “Everything” opens the mind with a slow intro and even-paced build before giving but a taste of what the EP has in store; and I love the consistent, airy drums going all-out in the background. “Grasslands” changes the focus with a more synth-heavy structure and tribal-like horn instrument whistling a tune to the skies above. “Tribe” concludes the trifecta with its 8bit-y style and hi-hat rolls to end your trip through the mind of this brilliant producer. I loved this whole EP and had to listen to more of Ramzoid‘s earlier tracks, as this artist is worth a gander. Get your free download to this amazing EP here.
It’s time to recline those armchairs and take a chill-pill with Labisch‘s new track, “Rain“. Coming from Wisconsin, this chillout producer has composed this masterpiece of relaxing ambiance. With faint piano chords as a foundation, the crisp snaps and eerie pipes make a ghostly tune for the rather melancholy lyrics. Having this track on repeat has left me with lidded eyes and cold running blood. You can catch the free download here.
