Relax with the master of chill-hop

For those who do not know chill-hop, welcome to your initiation. It’s simplee. Find a cozy corner, put on your best pair of headphones and immerse yourself in sensory bliss.

Chill-hop is, for all intents and purposes, an electronic fusion of chill-out music and hip-hop. The common threads include a slow tempo, broken beats, and jazzy elements – the kind of mellow listening perfectly suited to your “Rainy Sunday” playlist, in other words. Sometimes there are surprises too, like the sound of fresh coffee pouring into a mug or a poignant sound clip from a movie.

As with most musicians these days, the suave tones of French producer L’Indécis can easily be found on YouTube and SoundCloud. One of the most influential chill-hop artists, his work is an essential transition to the genre and an antidote to the stresses of everyday life. Start with the super smooth tracks “Staying There” and “Soulful”; you will feel the thrills of tranquility, nostalgia, the desire to travel… and all the rest.
