Chill the Fuck Out: Chillstep Chapter 3

Here at the Lounge we've had quite the busy past few weeks, and are in the need of some serious chill time. To that, I present the third installment of my Chilltastic Chillstep Playlist featuring seven awesome tracks that will hopefully make everyone calm the fuck down, and just nod their heads to the bass - because really, that's what living is all about.

"Beyond Jaded (Deadmau5 Cover)" - At Dawn We Rage

In case this wasn't obvious already, I'm a big deadmau5 fan. So imagine my surprise when I came across this amazing At Dawn We Rage Chillstep remix of one of my favorite tracks of his: "Jaded". The track is pretty relaxing to begin with, but this remix is perfect for night driving. And I love it. It's just so good. Have a listen; you won't be disappointed. 

"Love At Heart" - Blackmill

Blackmill fucking rules Chillstep. There's no way to dispute that. "Love at Heart" is one of my favorite tracks from Blackmill's album Miracle, and just like the rest of his stuff, it's forceful and it thumps while still being melodic and beautiful. I love seeing Dubstep tracks like this, and lucky for me that's all Blackmill releases. The build-up for this track is amazing, and the drop is beautiful. This one definitely has a spot alongside the above track on the Nighttime Cruising playlist, folks. No doubt about it. 

"The Drift" - Blackmill 

Classical and Dubstep: my two favorite things! "The Drift" even has violin! (I love the way violin sounds alongside the bass). The melody on this track is breathtaking, the beat is nice and forceful, and I can't stop listening to it. This is one of my favorite tracks right now, period. Have a listen.

"In the Twilight" - Phaeleh 

"In the Twilight" is an extremely chill track, and is tied for first with "Afterglow" as my favorite Phaeleh song. I love the vocals, the melody, and the percussion -- they all work together stunningly. This track is one of the chillest of the seven, even with the awesome drop where the beat comes in and really begins to drive the song.

"Afterglow" - Phaeleh (Akira Kiteshi Remix)

I posted about the original version of "Afterglow" in my second Chillstep Playlist, but this remix is so awesome and different that I had to include it in this post as well. Kiteshi's version is a little more forceful than the original, with an amplified beat and more prominent (and amazing) wobbles that work gorgeously with the vocals. This remix is truly a winner. 

"Sun & Moon" - Above & Beyond (Diverse Remix)

I wish I could explain how much I love the original "Sun & Moon" by British Trance trio A&B. Now take the original, chill it the fuck out, and Dubstepify it and I'm in absolute heaven. This is easily my favorite remix of the song; I've been obsessed since the day I heard it, so now I'm passing it's gloriousness on to you. Have a listen, it's worth every bit of those five-plus minutes. I promise.

"The Catalyst" - Linkin Park (Coastill Remix)

This is the first remix I've heard from Coastill, and I must say, I'm quite impressed. This is my new favorite reinterpretation of any Linkin Park song. Bennington's vocals work seamlessly with the bass wobbles and the drop. Not bad for Chillstep, not bad at all. Plus, there's piano - and we all know how I feel about that!
And I'm spent. That's all for today, children. Pop in some sick headphones and have a listen to all the eargasmically chill shit on this list and then let me know on Twitter if anything here moves you. Happy listening!
