Close Counters are a rising Aussie duo of talent that we’ve been firmly tracking on our radar for the last couple of years. Their new track ‘Picture Me’ is exactly what we were hoping they would launch into the audio stratosphere in 2016. A killer track!
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 of glorious candy is from Blondfire, Fare Soldi, Matoma, Chainsmokers, Sam Feldt, Katy B, Gallant + more.
Two of Vancouver’s finest have just unleashed another might remix on our ears and this one for Rozes’ ‘Burn Wild’ is indeed a fired up out of control king of tracks.
Halogen want your help to get their remix of The Chainsmokers’ ‘New York City’ to #1 on Hype Machine. Something tells me that it’s going to get there in an avalanche of clicks in no time. This is one hell of a mix that takes the original to dare I say it, deep house disco...
RobbieG’s remix of ‘How You Feel’ by Sammy Porter is a deep house thriller that you’ll want to indulge in. At just under 7 minutes, this isn’t long enough. Hit repeat.
Alice Ivy’s new track ‘Touch’ is quite encapsulating. The sound that Alice Ivy has hit upon here harks back to early Groove Armada, Moby, Bent, Avalanches and Chemical Brothers circa. ‘Star Guitar’. It is an absolute delight.
DAWN, aka Dawn Richard, releases her first single of 2016 and a second taste of her forthcoming album. Written by DAWN and Maya Vik, it is an absolutely huge track.
There’s a reason we put Nicole Millar on our YMR Watchlist for 2016. 2015 was an uplifting year of trajectory to the stars goodness and new track ‘Tremble’ proves that the co-ordinates haven’t changed for this year.
Head over heels for this track in an understatement. Bronze Whale’s ‘Love To Feel’ absolutely oozes class on this Jengi Beats mix. Gold!
Germany’s Styline has the midas touch on this remix of ‘Moments’ by Henza. This is a power house of a track and remix.
Swahili Blonde has dropped a new solo album with And Only The Melody Was Real and to celebrate it we have a special playlist put together by Nicole Turley.
Blondefire dropped a new single ‘True Confessions’ and it takes us to the land that sounds like Metric, which is all kinds of right! This is very different to recent track ‘Pleasure’ but is still what we want to be listening to 24/7.
Feki’s remix of ‘The Dreamer’ by Anna of The North starts off very silent and dreamy and builds up to a beat fuelled killer track. The original version ticks all of the boxes for us but this remix makes it HD.
So this happened! Janet Jackson gets a Goldroom remix. Does it get any better? Me thinks not for today’s ear treats. ’No Sleeep’ is definitely a return to form for JJ and this remix is a subtle, sensual and sexed up track.
Amtrac churns out another solid track ‘Long Nights’ from the Lost In Motion EP due for release 29th January 2016. This deep house beauty is a perfect pairing to Amtrac’s ‘Darkest Sound’.
Ameries’ track ‘One Thing’ is a sure fire track that I have a lot of time for. I tread carefully when listening to remixes of a favourite original but you know what? Melbourne’s QALMS has reworked and rearranged this one but kept the goodness in place, bringing it up to date for 2016.
BETABLOCK3R know how to service you with a poptastic indie dance track and ‘What You Wanted’ is definitely a track that we wanted to hear from this LA outfit.
I’ve heard a few stellar remixes of this track so far but this one from 40 Cobras and Sean Will is tropical bass that you’ll want to load into your pipe and smoke. We are absolutely addicted to this.
This remix from GOLDHOUSE is in fact 24ct and shines bright like diamond. Get on it!
MYNGA share their new original track ‘Share My Dreams’ and it’s a laid back summerfest of a track. Kick back with this divine and lush tune for the senses.
Say hello to the Halogen remix of Seven Lions and the sensational track ‘Falling Away’ featuring the floating on a cloud vocals from Lights.
One of our favourites on YMR is Hans Island and the silky vocals of Marie Dahlstrøm. New track ‘Break Free’ does not disappoint. In fact, this R&B gem is exactly the kind of track we were hoping would be a follow up to last year’s ‘I’m Yours’.
Yes yes and thrice yes! Emmy Wildwood and Bredahl have turned in a sensational mashup cover of Sia’s ‘Breathe Me’ and Major Lazer’s ‘Lean On’.
Gryffin spreads the wings on ‘Heading Home’ featuring Josef Salvat. This track has the sound of an artist that is ready to soar.
Madison Mars drop a huge track with ‘Milky Way’ going all supernova on us with this massive house track.
I don’t normal do previews, but this 2 minute sampler of Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP’s new one called ‘From Me To You’ sounds like it is going to be another massive slice of golden tuneage.
Time for a smooth bouncing track, courtesy of Royal on ‘Down For Whatever’ featuring Pell.
There’s a few digging into Coldplay for their new material but I’m a fan of their uplifting tracks, in particular their new one ‘Adventure of a Lifetime’. Norway’s Matoma has turned in some remix tricks on it and the results are a beauty.
This is the biggest and best remix of the silky smooth vocals of Australian Guy Sebastian that we’ve heard since The Chainsmokers mixed up ‘Like A Drum’.
I ever was stuck on a desert island, with only one artist to listen to…and a supply of power and a music player, JackLNDN would be an artist at the top of my list. Every mix and original we hear is absolute bliss.
On first listen, it sounds like Wyclef Jean is doing his best impression of The Edge from U2′s ‘Numb’ with the monotone lyrics at the start of the track. Fortunately, it breaks through quite quickly on ‘Kiss The Sky’.
AlunaGeorge is definitely in control on this new track featuring Popcaan. This ventures into another area of mainstream tropicalities that we’re getting onboard for sure.
DEVAULT and Wildfire’s remix of RL Grime’s ‘Always’ is a killer way to finish off a great week of music. RL Grimes’ sampling of Janet Jackson from ‘Love Will Never Do Without You’ (and possibly ‘No Sleep’) never sounded so good.
New burn ‘Pick It Up’ from Ditta & Dumont is a fire fuelled frenzy of a track. If you’re looking for monster bass and big dirty drops, look no further than Ditta & Dumont’s ‘Pick It Up’.
TastyTreat is slowly becoming one of my favourite listening pleasures. The last few tracks that have spilled forth from the TastyTreat cup have been super smooth and ‘Palms’ featuring Amory is no exception to that rule.
On Sunday January 31, VICE in collaboration with Sydney Opera House will host a night of music, art and technology through Samsung’s inaugural Sound + Vision showcase.
Don’t ever stop! If that’s the anthemic words that Cardiknox have embodied on their track ‘On My Way’, then this Lost Kings remix has amplified it all up to the heavens. Throw the brake pedal out of the window as you won’t be slowing down anytime soon.
‘More Like You’ from Brave Shores has been floating around for a little while now but that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be getting a play right now.
From the opening of this 7 minute excellence, you know you are in for one hell of a treat from Lane 8 on the new track ‘Midnight’. I’d expect nothing less from this masterful maestro. Make sure you listen to this gem all of the way through, via your headphones, with the lights off in...
Kucka’s voice on Cosmo’s Midnight’s ‘Walk With Me’ gets under my skin and into my blood stream every time I hear it. This remix from KOA has put it through the machine from Inner Space and pumped it into my DNA.
