We’ve put together a 24 track advent calendar of some of our favourite tunes of 2014. Each day a new track will be revealed to click on and play as we count down to the Christmas festivities. We promise lots of crackers! Ho Ho Ho!!!
Does it get any smoother than this Bishiclet rework of Miguel’s ‘Sure Thing’ for the weekend? Me thinks not. This is a slick mix.
Kilter drops the beats on new track ‘Coward’ featuring the mighty vocals Ngaiire. This is all class from Sydney’s Ned East aka. Kilter.
This remix is outstanding at takes ‘Walking With A Ghost’ into a whole new territory that we’re more than happy to explore. Come take a walk with Manila Killa.
This Zimmer remix for Brooke Fraser’s ‘Kings & Queens’ is an absolute killer mix. Zimmer made this remix in Seoul, wandering around the city at night to find inspiration. Thank you Seoul as this is gold.
We’re big on World Wild as a rising talent and new track premiere ‘Coast To Coast’ is a summer jam that you’ll not want to take your ears off.
It’s taken an immense amount of time to put this one together due to the amount of great tracks we have been listening to but we’ve finally culled it down to 35 awesome tracks that we want to listen to 24/7.
You can’t go by an RAC remix, particularly when it is this golden and fine. Echosmith have their stellar track ‘Cool Kids’ given the magic RAC touch.
We’re looking forward to catching Back Back Forward Punch at the Acid Stag Christmas Party on Friday and two new tracks have dropped to get the taste buds overflowing with tunes. Get your fix of ‘Big Time’ and ‘Up Late In The Jungle’ to get your dynamite blowing.
Morgan Then and Fletcher Ehlers aka. SLUMBERJACK drop their future bass single ‘Horus’ which is a killer tune. It partners well with fellow EP track ‘The Others’ which ramps it up a little, features KLP and has an almost half nod to Ryuichi Sakamoto’s ‘Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence’.
I don’t know if there’s any influences on ALTA from the likes of Moloko or Róisín Murphy but if there is, it definitely shines through in ‘Hold Your Fire’.
Big up the ear treat from Bakermat with ‘Teach Me’ getting a thorough hit of the repeat button with this absolute gold to the ears. Absorb this into your music pores.
This remix needs no introduction and certainly doesn’t need me waffling on to tell you it’s pretty golden. Get on it and get the Uppermost Remix in your face.
Usually after seeing another remix of ‘Kanye’ it is swiftly followed by a listen and either a disappointing sigh or a joyous round of applause. This one from Dave Edwards definitely gets the latter.
It is time for another golden remix from SNBRN. Melanie Martinez and her fine song ‘Carousel’ get to go around on the mixed up merry go round with this take on the track from the LA mixmaster.
I’ve heard some intriguing remixes of The Notorious B.I.G. recently but this one makes it to the top of the pile for us.
If there’s anything I can say about what is to become of 2015, one word comes to mind….saxophone! This lush remix from Free n Losh (pun pun pun) adds some marvellous flavour to the original mix of ‘It’s Only’ and that special sax word is burning like a beacon.
We’re priming our watch list for 2015 at the moment and we can safely say that MNEK will be amongst the rising talent that we should all be keeping our eyes on in next year.
I have plenty of ear time available for anything featuring Simon Lord, so when we caught this new Dillon Francis track featuring the man himself, we were very happy. Turns out that ‘Drunk All The Time (The Rebirth)’ is a killer track too.
I just stumbled across this one. It’s an old mix but that doesn’t matter at all as this remix from Collarbones is gold.
Well, if there was ever a track to stir up the beginning of the week with excellence, it’s this new track from VCS featuring Elizabeth Rose. This is all kinds of right and an absolute killer track to kickstart your week with.
Here’s another smoking mix from Gazzo who has cranked up the temperature on Jessie J’s ‘Burnin Up’ taking it to incinerator levels.
Bring it on! David Guetta’s ‘Dangerous’ gets the tropical house remix treatment from Precog and this is just all fine and dandy. If you’ve misplaced your cocktail, go make another one quick as this is a sun kissed anthem that you’ll want to indulge yourself in.
You never go past a bit of Dragonette in a remix, particularly when it is this good from the likes of DJ Konai.
Little Boots has dropped her 3 track Business Pleasure EP and if the initial track ‘Taste It’ wasn’t enough to get your pulse racing, other tracks ‘Heroine’ and ‘Pretty Tough’ will take you there.
It’s not until you attempt to sing Earth Wind & Fire’s ‘September’ on karaoke that you realise how ridiculous the lyrics are and how many made up words and sounds are in there. It’s all good though, as long as you can sing falsetto.
I’m loving this new track ‘IMY’ from New York based producerAlexander Lewis. This one future bass jam I’m riding into the sunset on.
Another instalment is ready of your ears with some of the best tunes online and streaming that you should be getting your ears wrapped around. As always, there are so many tracks that have dropped both new and old from Artful, EDX, Magic Bronson, High Highs, Clean Bandit, Giraffage + loads more.
Gulity as charged your honour! Guilty of sitting on this mix and not getting it out there as quickly as we should’ve as this remix from The Penelopes is an absolute disco funk fest take on ‘Games For Girls’ that we’re lapping up like a cat that got the cream.
I’ve been looking forward to the moment when Elephante drops an original and we’re excited to say that new track ‘Shake The Earth’ is as golden as any remix that Elephante has done in recent times. This bodes well for future originals and an upwards and onwards trajectory.
No disrespect to the gargantuan amount of tracks I’ve surfed in the inbox recently, but this one from Magic Bronson is one of my favourites of recent times. This reminds me of very early Calvin Harris before he kicked into all things EDM.
A very interesting thing to observe. Giorgio Moroder remixes Joywave’s track ‘Tongues’ and gives a coating of gold. Not sure why there’s not a massive amount of clicks happening on this though.
We’re BIG fans of Robert Lux and have been keeping a watchful eye on his new tracks and progress over the last 12-18 months. He’s a king of deep house tracks and this collaboration with Shyvonne on ‘Like No Other’ is another hot track to wrap your ears around.
Here’s a mix of Duke Dumont’s class track ‘I Got You’ that starts out chilled but quickly takes you up and beyond into future disco territory.
Me thinks that the Lost Kings are heading into the territory that The Chainsmokers were sailing in 12-18 months ago. They’re putting some stellar mixes out at the moment that are ramping up with each new one that drops.
Say hello to one massive remix of Coldplay’s ‘Trouble’ remixed into probably one of the best mixes of a Coldplay track that you’ve heard so far and will in the foreseeable future.
Boom I say to this Jerry Folk remix of ‘Suga Suga’ which is a funk filled lights down low take on the original from Baby Bash.
Just in case you missed it, Azealia Banks announced her partnership with Soundcloud, BitTorrent Bundle and MTV for a very special remix opportunity this week.
I’m not a huge fan of the new track ‘Yellow Flicker Beat’ from Lorde but I am a fan of this remix/rework from LYAR. It’s done something to it that I can only say adds more depth to a song that wasn’t really grabbing my attention before.
Everyone has been raving over the Lido mix of Flight Facilities but I’m not into it. I tell you what I am into though and it is this flipped up version from Myles William.
Go on then. Here’s another quite excellent mashup of Kanye West mixed in with Madeon by the mighty Myndset. This is golden.
