I’ve been listening to a lot of really chill music lately and more recently I’ve come across a producer/dj who goes by the name Cashmere Cat. This is some really chill stuff right here folks! His music has a very trap-hiphop-like feel to it but it is very soulful. I enjoy listening to it a lot and I hope you do too! Here are a few of my favorites plus a 30 min mix:
Peace Love and Bass!!
I’ve come across some great glitch-hop artists and I’e come across some great funk artists but none combine them better then this guy right here. My Artist of the Week has got to be Stickybuds. Stickybuds manages to combine raw glitchy sounds with upbeat lyrics and old familiar samples into a monster tune that can get any crowd going. A bit of his bio reads:
From the funkafied west coast of Canada, Stickybuds has been making his mark on music all over the globe. In the last few years he’s found himself performing in 14 different countries, captivating fans wherever he goes. His work ethic and passion have also earned him a residency at Canada’s Shambhala music festival (2005 – 2012), as well as performances at Glastonbury (UK), Splore Festival (NZ), Burning Man (USA) and the legendary Space club in Ibiza (ES).
With 20 releases on multiple labels, Sticky loves to create and play dance floor friendly music of many different tempo’s. His sets are filled with Funk, DNB, Glitch Hop, Reggae and Breaks all intricately woven through countless hours in the studio.
Stickybuds is definitelyone of my top favorite Canadian DJs. Wish I weren’t on the other side of the country haha. Anyways enough of me heres some recent tunes of his and his Fractal Forest Mix from Shambhala 2012. Enjoy!
Peace Love and Bass
Came across another heavy trap song in my song scour recently. Very clean tune with huge bass synths and a lot of Big Booty!
This is one badass trap chune right here!!! Clancys` got my number one pick of the week right here. Butch bass-lines and intricate snare rhythms pieced together with chopped up lyrics and a variety of some pretty cool synths make up a very delish tune! Enjoy!

Here’s a cool glitchy/ hiphop remix I came across a while back. Dutty Moonshine is the creation of Michael Rack and Alex Furley. Both have had years of experience mixing many genres from Hip-Hop to Breaks to Jungle and are known to rock the stage by reviving old songs from the 1920s and 30s. Check out these badboys of swing, and pop over to their SoundCloud page and check out what else they’ve got to offer! Also gotta give some credit to the original artist of this song… London Posse.
Here’s a chill tune from the Ghettofunk Icons Vol 3 Album that was recently released. Def worth listening to, little glitchy bit towards the end too!
Check these guys out! Four Djs, four turntables! Super cool performance!
