This summer has been insanely hot across Europe. People, organizations, institutions - everything has stopped, but there's one group of people who are continuously helping us having a better music summer. The Chillhop Records guys are simply put on fire.
Besides their usually Essentials compilations, the crew has prepared a brand new release called Daydreams. Fore-fronted by their new mascot, the release contains 18 tracks from some of the best chillhop / beat producers around the globe.
We have the pleasure to ride that chill ride by premiering the 3rd track - a mindful 2 minutes delight crafted by French producer sad toï. Actually, if I am not mistaken that might be one of his first tracks - a true new discovery on the beat scene!
"jeux d'eau" which translates to water sports in English is a laid back fairy tale of lofi / chillhop elements and it perfectly fits with the text accompanying the Daydreams compilation (download / get vinyl here):
"The sound of the wind, the music, and nothing else. Watching the world from above, daydreaming.
A few books, good music and good food. Don't forget about the coffee. That's all it needs for the yearly getaway to the cloud cabin. Waking up with the sun, with nothing on the agenda but relaxing. A secluded trip when an escape is needed from the traffic, the hustle, the crowds. Sitting on the edge, watching the world pass by. If the window is kept open, the music can be heard from inside.
The smell of coffee, the sound of music and a gentle breeze.
Tapping its feet, looking down, daydreaming.
This is all I need"
