Well then, YMR has just hit a fantastic 4 years old!! We’re about to have a huge slice of musical cake and say a big thanks to all those who have been coming back to us since launching in 2011 and also a shoutout to all the continued newbies too....
Get your ears ready for some of the best streaming tunes around that you should be introducing your ears drums to. So many tracks and so little time. This week’s fix comes from Both, The Chainsmokers, Galantis, Morgan Page, Klingande, Major Lazer, Kelly Clarkson + more.
The Chainsmokers know how to pick a good vocalist for their new tracks and Great Good Fine Ok are a perfect choice and perfect pairing on new track ‘Let You Go’.
My goodness. George Maple has done it again with new track ‘Where You End And I Begin’. There’s a soulful RnB flavour from the 90s sprinkled on this track (and a lot of others coming through the woodwork at the moment). It all bodes well the tour and the debut album when that drops.
How sweet it is to get another dose of remix goodness from Eau Claire. This continues the fine pedigree of track selection that Eau Claire chooses to mix up and the stellar versions keep going with this Marvin Gaye mix.
Why people is this track not getting blogged to the high heavens? AlunaGeorge + Skrillex + Diplo = a track Ü should be drinking by the barrel full.
Nicolas Haelg remixes Colin Hay’s acoustic take on his classic Men At Work track ‘Down Under’. This remix is tropical and golden and nails it.
If you were hungry for another sensational track from Klingande, look no further than RIVA (Restart The Game). This is another tropical country crossover track. If you thought sax was on the rise, wait until you hear the harmonica action on this one.
If you thought La+ch and the track ‘Crave’ was a killer tune, wait until you fill your boots and ears with new track ‘Tastey’.
Chelsea Lankes steps into overdrive with ‘Too Young To Fall In Love’ which is a cover of Motley Crue. I was never a metal fan but what I am a fan of is anything that Chelsea Lankes puts her vocals to and this is gold.
I have only recently been getting back into The Chemical Brothers and in particular ‘Galvanize’ has been getting spins galore. It is very timely then that EVIL TWIN should drop a remix of that track and not only give it a new lease of life but also take it into the sky like a rocket...
I love this. Venessa Michaels’ ‘Touch Me’ featuring Kiana Brown embraces early 90s RnB and 2015 deep house influences and combines the two in a garage sized cocktail shaker.
Well this is golden track and a half isn’t it. Major Lazer + DJ Snake + MØ = Killer tune!
WOW is all I have to say Nigel Good. This remix of Eagle Eye Cherry’s “Save Tonight” is just an instant classic. The track begins with some playful vocal chop in the beginning and leads into a refreshing pop house melody. With soft romantic vocals and an upbeat house groove this track creates an atmosphere...
2015 started with some controversy over this new mysterious artist ATTLAS. Rumors were circulating that this was Deadmau5. It wasn’t until the actual Deadmau5 wrote up on twitter and made it very clear that he is not ATTLAS. Although to me the sound is very similar and to be fair he is a mysterious alias...
I’ve been a massive fan of George Fitzgerald since hearing his remix of Kimbra’s ‘The Build Up’ which is 2 years old but still sounds as fresh as a daisy and probably more relevant in 2015 than ever with the deep house movement that’s going on.
Lissie has teamed up again with Morgan Page for one killer EDM anthem. For those of you who loved 2008′s ‘The Longest Road’ that had the gravelly and husk filled vocals of Lissie, you’re in for a treat on new track ‘Open Heart’.
Take yourself to an 8-bit kind of place with this very excellent remix from Solomun giving Josef Salvat’s ‘Hustler’ an arcade like feel in the sound proceedings.
50 Cent gets taken to the deep house club with this Bender remix. ‘In Da Club’ gets bounced and it’s golden.
Oh Wonder continue their monthly digest of all things golden with new track ‘Technicolour Beat’ which is another step along the way to their September album launch.
It’s been a slow day for tunes of the bloat floating variety. We’ve been sitting here with our fishing line in the water for a little while. The line was pulled firmly by this catch from Pairanoid with Nelly Furtado getting a remix turn.
Kick back and chill with ‘Dancing With Myself’ from The Knocks. This is their first offering since the classic ‘Classic’ and I’m all over this like a rash. Love it.
The original version of ‘Wah Ha’ has you drifting along on a summer’s breeze. Seekae’s remix is like the autumnal twin that’s a little darker and a little more delicious.
Black Honey’s ‘Madonna’ is truly a cabriolet top down, cruising kind of track. If The Hills was still going, they’d be using this for sure.
Take yourself to the beach with Matoma’s remix of Sheppard and ‘Geronimo’ getting the blissed up and chilled treatment.
It’s the last day of summer in Australia today but you wouldn’t think so when you’re listening to this. Prides’ ‘Higher Love’ gets taken up high on a summer breeze with this Fred Falke remix.
VÉRITÉ hits you between the ears with ‘Wasteland’ and continues her assault on grabbing your attention in 2015 with her killer tracks.
Hands down, this remix from Kasbo for Vance Joy’s ‘Riptide’ is the best VJ mix out there. This burns slowly and then ignites at the chorus every time.
Dark disco is threading through a fair few mixes at the moment and this Nicholas Jaar remix of Florence & The Machine’s ‘What Kind of Man’ is another fine example of what’s on offer. If you like your tracks over 12 minutes long, hypnotic and burning through your soul, this one is for you.
Time to get your killer remix fix from Adventure Club. MS MR’s ‘Hurricane’ has been treated to a delectable delight of a mix here.
Say yes to this ANGELZ remix. Here we have ‘Daydreamin’ given an injection of house that takes Lupe Fiasco x Jill Scott and us to the club and we don’t want to come back.
Lenno turns it up all night long with this very fine remix of ‘Heartbeat Song’. Kelly Clarkson gets taken to a golden place on this one.
New track ‘Records’ from Paul Conrad is the equivalent of Lana Del Rey wearing Interpol clothing. How awesome does that sound? Bloody good, I can tell you.
It is early days, but Phoebe Ryan’s ‘Mine’ is looking hotly placed to be one of our favourite tracks of 2015. Yes, we’re only in February, but the added value of stellar remixes on this track at the moment is firmly cementing it in our hearts and minds.
Just when I thought I was completely over listening to Sia tracks, along comes the official Kid Arkade remix of ‘Elastic Heart’ that has rebounded Sia into our beating hearts. This is an anthem to get the blood pumping.
Beshken has just dropped an abstract track called ‘Hiro’. This feels like an alternate universe take of Chemical Brother’s ‘Star Guitar’ through a broken mirror with shards of sound splintering off in all directions.
This remix of Golden Coast’s ‘Futurist’ featuring Grammy winner Sirah is 24ct gold for the ears. The added slice of Sirah’s vocals on this is just what the doctor ordered.
Mr. Big gets some tropical thunder courtesy of Mark Chill. Who knows why this works but it does. This is going to be your jam this summer.
This remix is absolutely smoking. Afrojack has turned in an unexpected remix for the collaboration track ‘FourFiveSeconds’ which sees Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney together in a swirling pot of goodness.
I’ve been a big fan of Thief since having the luck of getting to an Aston Shuffle gig early and catching the synthesiser king PJ Wolf turning it on. New track ‘Crazy’ continues the sound we’ve become accustomed to and we’re loving it.
