I'm on Mastodon (actually, the Fediverse) at:


  • I have a question, not about the playlist, but I’m wondering why Sensi Sye actually did a Remix of Struggle by Metroo instead of making Struggle an original song himself. I always thought that Struggle was an original song by Sensi Sye, not Metroo, but the one with Sensi Sye Remix and the one without a Remix note both sound the exact same.

  • This is actually a very good question, and I’ve tried to reach out to the artists in the past, to no avail.

    If I had to guess, either Metroo and Sensi Sye are the same person and they decided to re-release the song under one name, or Metroo may have abandoned their project, OR one of them took ownership over the song after a while. Or one of many other reasons.

    Music rights and collaborations are very, very odd and complicated sometimes. Actually, this is something that I find very fun about Cafe Chill. A lot of smaller artists that hang around for a minute, and then we may never heard about again, but we hope we do, and we will keep bringing their old tunes back into the show!

    I’ve got a few early/mid-2010s treasures I would love to feature in the 4th hour on Sundays still. Thank you for chiming in again, Darius! I hope you and your family are doing well. =)

    • Thank you so much. I think Sensi Sye is on Spotify but the chillout Metroo isn’t, so I’m thinking that Metroo got removed from the streaming platforms, so he might’ve decoded to do the original project under Metroo, but he probably when he deleted Metroo, he probably decided to re-record it under Sensi Sye and get it posted.

      Thanks so much for the input! Can’t wait to see what the lineup will be for next week!
