Chill Monday: Jon Hopkins and Purity Ring's "Breathe This Air"

I've been a longtime fan of British producer Jon Hopkins' chillwave beats since I heard this song in the early 2000s - and was therefore excited to read about a revamped version of his dreamy electronic track "Breathe This Air," with this genre's current vocal obsession, Megan James of Purity Ring.

On the new remix, James' pixie-like vocals dart in and out of his flickering beat and synth pulses. Even though the beat quickens almost right away, the sporadic piano notes slow down the tempo - making this one of the most relaxing electro-ballads I've heard in months.

Enjoy the start to your week.
