Chill Out Playlist

Hey, I don't know about you, but I love chilling out. This playlist is going to be almost exclusively acid jazz, ambient, chillstep and other chill electronica. This is the music I listen while studying or writing, it's also great background music.

Track 1: Home VIP by Dubba Johnny (I recently found this song, it's pretty chill over all)

Track 2:  Ave Maria by Paul Schwartz (I think that this is my favorite version of the classic Ave Maria, even beats the Pavarotti version in my opinion)

Track 3: Richest Man In Babylon by Thievery Corporation (Thievery is my favorite acid jazz, ambient group by far. So good.)

Track 4: Bulgarian Interlude by Don Peyote & Marcell Cellier (I got this off of an album called Chill Out In Paris, definitely worth checking out if you like this kind of music)

Track 5: On Melancholy Hill by Gorillaz (Gorillaz, amazing. That is all)

Track 6: Dil Cheez by Bally Sagoo (I love Indian music anyways, but this is so sweet)

Track 7: Blossom From India by Ginkgo Garden (More stuff like the one above.)

Track 8: Morenito (Bossa Mix ft. Clementine) by Stephane Pompougnac (A mix of bossa nova and ambient. Really relaxing)

Track 9: Nawal Al Zoghbi by El Layali (It's an old song, but this is a new take on it.)

Track 10: Cay's Crays by Fat Freddys Drop (I love dub. It's incredible and Fat Freddys may be my favorite dub group. So great)

That's all folks. I hope you like this one, I sure do. Keep on listening to music and expanding your knowledge. Stephen.

Hardstyle Playlist

To me, there are two sides of the summer vibe, the chill side, and the party side. So far I've only done the chill side so this playlist will be the beginning of the party playlist. I don't know much about electronika because I just recently started listening to it, so for this one I got my buddy Alan to help me out. Oh, Alan's a DJ, check out his soundcloud, but in a little bit, he's working on it. I'll post a link later on. Get hype. Anyways, this is the party playlist and it's gonna be all hardstyle so if you're not a fan this isn't for you, but you should still check it out.

Track 1: Technoboy by The Undersound feat. MC Ruffian (We're gonna start off a little slow and then build up. This song is pretty solid hardstyle.)

Track 2: Rockin Ur Mind by D-Block & S-te-fan (I really can't say much so I'm just gonna say the artist and song and link to youtube now...)

Track 3: In And Out by Wildstylez

Track 4: Just Don't Care by The Prophet

Track 5: The Way That I Ride by Coone

Track 6: Reveal Our Existence (Da Tweekaz GTFO remix) by Sebulba

Track 7: Gimmie Love by Noisecontrollers

Track 8: Irreplaceable by Zatox

Track 9: Segarra by Norin & Rad

Track 10: A New Today by Endymion & Art of Fighters

That's it for this one. I'll put up another one later on today so check it out. Keep on listening to music and expanding your knowledge. Stephen

Summer Hip Hop Playlist

My playlist yesterday got over  100 views, that's a record for me, thanks guys. As I promised some of you yesterday, today I'm doing a hip hop only summertime playlist. I hope you enjoy this one. I think tomorrow I'll make an electronika playlist if the views stay up like they have been. So, with out further adieu, here we go.

Track 1: Sunshine by Atmosphere (Of course this is on here, this IS the summer hip hop song. Rivaled by none, it's perfection)

Track 2: Gin & Juice by Snoop Dogg (With Snoop's west coast flow with the Dr. Dre beat this song was destined to be chill, it's truly a classic)

Track 3: Ms. Jackson by OutKast (OutKast is amazing, Andre 3000 is amazing, this is amazing)

Track 4: Daydreamin' by Lupe Fiasco (I love Lupe Fiasco, I hate Lasers, but I love Food and Liquor and The Cool. This is hip hop)

Track 5: Ghetto Gospel by Tupac Shakur (I decided to only use one of Pac's songs, so I chose this one, but they're all incredible)

Track 6: G Code by Geto Boyz (Such a good song, also, there's totally a midget rapper in this group, how can you beat that?)

Track 7: My Block by Scarface (I love the piano riff, a homage to his block, it's both a good look and a bad one. Real nice)

Track 8: Today Was A Good Day by Ice Cube (Is this really the same guy that is in Are We There Yet? He's come a long way. Great song though)

Track 9: Nuthin' But A G Thang by Dr. Dre (Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and the rest of Death Row throws down on this song, off of one of the chillest rap albums of all time, The Chronic by Dr. Dre)

Track 10: Road To Zion by Damian Marley ft. Nas (Nas and Bob's son Damian make the song that honestly sums up all of my beliefs, this song is perfect.)

That's it for this one. Keep checking in, I'll post more stuff. Keep on listening to music and expanding your knowledge. Stephen.
