I love Schiller. The Deutsche band named after German philospher, poet, historian, and playwright Friedrich Schiller, is led by Christopher von Deylen. When I went to the Middle East in 2005, I was obsessed with this track. Unfortunately since then, I haven’t heard a Schiller track that I’ve loved. Until now. Von Deylen’s back with one of The Hot Six’s princesses, Nadia Ali, in this downtempo gem. B-t-dubs, the picture there, the one of Nadia, in the inset, you GOTTA LOVE THE CURLY HAIR! Shout out to Yasi June’s amigo, Asif Khan, for the rec.
Try – Schiller ft. Nadia Ali
Kansas native, and general music buff, AP, bring us this SBTRKT recommendation via The Hype Machine. Adam Jerome, aka SBTRKT (pronounced subtract), has been active since 2008 with remixes for MIA, Mark Ronson, and Bassment Jaxx. The London native crushes on this relaxing, yet wildly addicting jam remixed by LA-based Them Jeans.

I can’t leave you without including one banger on here! It is The Hot Six, after all! A little shout out to my boy, Big Jon, for reminding me about how epic the Swedish House Mafia set at Madison Square Garden was in December. One of my fave jams from the set was “In My Mind,” which we featured on The Hot Six #24. Now you can say that your weekend was BOOMED!

Let us know what you think, and as always, let us know what you’re listening to.
The Hot Six Team.
