Chillout Weekend - A Journey Into Soulful Jazzy House


For today's workforce, the weekend means relaxation and what better way to unwind than to listen to some jazzy, chillout house music while enjoying a glass of martini with your significant other by your side. In line with this, today's upload is a mix of deep, soulful house tracks from familiar names such as Miguel Migs, Kaskade, Mark Farina, and Solu Music, compiled by yours truly to help your mind and body recharge after a long and stressful week.
I've also included remixes from Marques Wyatt, Andy Cato of the famed Groove Armada, and Talvin Singh. Though not included in today's lineup, one superb DJ in this league would be Ben Watt, who enjoyed a successful pop career as one-half of the UK duo, Everything But The Girl (please see remixes of EBTG from my good friend, Mixipod's blog), before reinventing himself as a skilled house DJ and remixer. Ben also launched his own Buzzin' Fly label and established himself as a global ambassador of deep, sophisticated and soulful house music.
Locally, M1 proprietor, Program Director of the now defunct radio program, "The Chillout Project," and DJ, Anton Ramos also released 3 mix compilations of chillout house music and this, in a way, also inspired me to do a mix compilation of my own.

So now, on with the music...

Tracks included:
1) Intro
2) Destiny - Zero 7 (Photek Remix) - somethin' different from Photek; nice house remix
3) Soundtrack To The Soul - Kaskade (Big City Dub Mix)
4) Cali Spaces - Mark Farina (Kaskade Mix) - funky tune
5) Got To Give - Fred Everything (Extended Mix)

6) It's You, It's Me - Kaskade (Marques Wyatt Remix)

7) Fade - Solu Music (Eric Kupper Mix)
8) Feel - Li'Sha (Miguel Migs Petalpusher Vocal Mix)
9) Join Me - John Lucas feat. Tylene (Jamies Lewis Dub Cut Mix)
10) If You Give Me - John Dahlback (Extended Mix)
11) Down To The Ground - Inland Knights (Extended Mix)
12) Enjoy - Bjork feat. Tricky (Talvin Singh Beats Mix)
13) Hush Boy - Basement Jaxx (Soulseekerz Remix)
14) Everything - Kaskade (Kaskade's Big Room Mix) (best Kaskade tune for me)
15) The Price Is Right - Paul Johnson (Paul Johnson Mix) (a salute to Bob Barker :))
16) Do It For You - Miguel Migs (Original Vocal Mix)
17) Good Vibrations - Andy Cato (Extended Mix) (love this track!)
18) Do You Really Want To Hurt Me - Culture Club (Kinky Disco Remix) (a touch of 80s)
19) The Weekend - Michael Gray (Juan Magan Remix)


Here's to a relaxing musical journey!!
