Latest entries
CHVRCHES - Miracle

CHVRCHES – Miracle

CHVRCHES have dropped new track ‘Miracle’ which is a quite mighty offering and slightly off of the reservation for their usual sound.  Love it.  This will be epic live. Miracle is the only song from Love Is Dead that we didn’t write and record in the States, instead producing it in London with Steve Mac....
Shmuck the Loyal - Not Alone

Shmuck the Loyal – Not Alone

This one’s got a nice bit of heat going on  Shmuck the Loyal’s ‘Not Alone’ is a stellar track that slides through a few genres on its magnificent journey.  You definitely can’t pigeon hole this one.
Uber Kings - Fock

Uber Kings – Fock

This starts out like a 90′s hard rave track and then morphs into another trap psychosis of a concoction from this mad scientist of an artist.
Wilsonn - Even If I Know

Wilsonn – Even If I Know

Wilsonn drops some smooth and soulful electronica on new track ‘Even If I Know’.  It’s a little bit Chet Faker with a dash of Thief.  Love it.
Spazz Cardigan - Episode

Spazz Cardigan – Episode

For a bloke calling himself Spazz Cardigan, this is a surprisingly smooth and a surprisingly surprising track.  Get yourself on ‘Episode’ and swoon.
Halcyon Drive - Silver Ray (Official Video)

Halcyon Drive – Silver Ray (Official Video)

The very excellent Halcyon Drive have launched the video to their new single ‘Silver Ray’ and it’s a stop-start extravaganza of a video.
Above & Beyond’s ‘Common Ground’ Aus Tour: Onsale Now

Above & Beyond’s ‘Common Ground’ Aus Tour: Onsale Now

Tickets to Above & Beyond’s Common Ground album tour go on sale today and it is set to be huge and set to sell out!
Thandi Phoenix - My Way

Thandi Phoenix – My Way

Wowsers! The new track from Thandi Phoenix is absolute fire!  Even if you were blind and tone deaf, you’d pick that this track has Rudimental production all over it and that is far from a bad thing as they’re touch is golden.
Little Boots - Picture

Little Boots – Picture

Little Boots has dropped another exquisite track called ‘Picture’ produced by Lauren Flax and taken from her new all female collaborative Burn EP out on April 6th.
Vera Blue - Lady Powers (Official Video)

Vera Blue – Lady Powers (Official Video)

Vera Blue’s new track ‘Lady Powers’ is an absolute scorcher of a track that is gonna burn up the opposition  The production on this is quite epic. Sooooo good.  The video is a perfect match and we can’t get enough of it.
The Magician - Las Vegas (The Remixes)

The Magician – Las Vegas (The Remixes)

They say good things come in 3′s and this sweet suite of remixes for The Magician’s ‘Las Vegas’ is a trio of golden goodness.
Annie Bass & Christopher Port — Thrown Away/Counting All

Annie Bass & Christopher Port — Thrown Away/Counting All

Hello! This two track EP from Annie Bass and Christopher Port is a double delight.  ‘Thrown Away’ is in familiar territory for fans of Annie Bass and ‘Counting All’ takes us into Massive Attack’ville and we love it.
Element - Needles

Element – Needles

Keeping on the dark tunes and that Resident Evil soundtrack theme, ‘Needles’ by Element could also be a pumping through veins kind of zombie slaying track that would keep those safe in Racoon City.
Snowmass - Breaking

Snowmass – Breaking

‘Breaking’ by Snowmass sounds like one of tracks from a fight sequence in the Resident Evil movies.  Quite dark but also quite uplifting.  A bit like an Underworld dance/classical combo.
Animal Feelings Ft. Thief - Pain Au Chocolat

Animal Feelings Ft. Thief – Pain Au Chocolat

This track is everything and more. I’m a big fan of Thief and this collaboration is just sensational. It follows nicely on their previous collab on Falling but the levels are raised considerably on ‘Pain Au Chocolat’.
Road To Ultra Australia: Live Review

Road To Ultra Australia: Live Review

When Road to Ultra Australia was announced last year, Saturday 24th February 2018 seemed so far far away. Summer has come and is nearly gone and so too has Australia’s spectacular foray into the world of the Ultra Music Festival (for this year anyway).
Little Boots - Shadows

Little Boots – Shadows

Yes Yes Yes! Time to celebrate people. Little Boots is back with a new track called ‘Shadows’ and it looks like being on the road on the decks has influenced her on this new offering, as we’re in the club after 2am on this one.
Small Talk - Wait

Small Talk – Wait

I like this track.  I like it a lot.  Small Talk’s ‘Wait’ is a Sunday morning chill kind of track that’s a little Bipolar Sunshine with a twist of smooth.
JackLNDN - Rain EP

JackLNDN – Rain EP

JackLNDN is one of our fave artists here on YMR and his new Rain EP with a stellar trio of tracks is a delight to the ears.
Almost Owen - If It Were Me

Almost Owen – If It Were Me

Isaac Haselkorn aka. Almost Owen drops some fire on ‘If It Were Me’ and this bouncing track shines.
Tim Morrison - Slow Motion

Tim Morrison – Slow Motion

Say hello Tim Morrison and his stellar house offering ‘Slow Motion’.  Climb aboard and ride this track.
Suss Cunts - Temper

Suss Cunts – Temper

Suss Cunts have dropped a ripper of a track with ‘Temper’ that takes me all the way back to the sound of The Cure’s ‘Killing An Arab’ meets Hazel O’Connor.  Listening to ‘Temper’ and ‘Newby’ back to back feels just like heaven to me.
Marcus Marr Mixtape (Dublab Dec 2017)

Marcus Marr Mixtape (Dublab Dec 2017)

UK producer and Chet Faker collaborator Marcus Marr released his Familiar Five EP via DFA Records and, we’re sharing a recent mix that he did for dublab and to say it is floating our boat is an understatement.
Para Doc - Saying Things

Para Doc – Saying Things

Time to start the week with a bounce on Para Docs ‘Saying Things’.  Not a bad way to spend your Monday listening we say.
Laneway Festival wraps up! 

Laneway Festival wraps up! 

Laneway Festival is in full swing with the festival kicking off in sunny Port Adelaide over the weekend.
Solstis - Open Your Eyes

Solstis – Open Your Eyes

If ‘Open Your Eyes’ by Solstis was a cocktail, it would be made up of Jean-Michel Jarre, Justice and Skrillex.  It’s industrial and also symphonic and sounds like it is straight out of a chase scene from T2 when they’re in the steel mill.
BOiCE, Feline - Soaking Lovers

BOiCE, Feline – Soaking Lovers

This track is criminally too short.  BOiCE and Feline with ‘Soaking Lovers’ is an exotic dance of a track that makes me want to shake it.
Set Mo - Nightmares feat. Scott Quinn

Set Mo – Nightmares feat. Scott Quinn

Set Mo have released their fire new single ‘Nightmares’ and the track comes out of the traps like a prize winning greyhound and doesn’t let up chasing the rabbit for the full duration.  This is quite excellent.
CHVRCHES - Get Out

CHVRCHES – Get Out

CHVRCHES are back with their new single ‘Get Out’ and this powers on from where we left off back in 2015 and the release of their critically acclaimed second album Every Open Eye.
ELOHIM - Fuck Your Money

ELOHIM – Fuck Your Money

We are BIG fans of all things ELOHIM and every track that has spilled forth has been golden.  New track ‘Fuck Your Money’ is definitely up there with her best and again, another anthem for the year.
The Magician - Las Vegas (feat. Ebenezer)

The Magician – Las Vegas (feat. Ebenezer)

My word.  The Magician’s ‘Las Vegas’ featuring Ebenezeer is quite the track.  We’ve just scraped into the second month of the year and this is by far the best ear candy I have heard so far in 2018.
Road To Ultra Australia: 90% Sold Out

Mashd N Kutcher - Need Me (feat. Sammi Constantine)

Mashd N Kutcher – Need Me (feat. Sammi Constantine)

Mashd N Kutcher drop a hot new track for the Summer with ‘Need Me’ featuring Sammi Constantine.  The chorus is taken from The Cardigans’ ‘Love Fool’ and their take on the lyrics on this electronica is pretty awesome.

Venessa Michaels & Olmos - Good Love (feat. Effy)

Venessa Michaels & Olmos – Good Love (feat. Effy)

I’m all for seeing out the end of year tunes on a high and ‘Good Love’ from Venessa Michaels & Olmos, featuring Effy certainly does that for sure.  This definitely has summer vibes to kick on the sunsets here in Australia right now.
Marcus Marr - High Times

Marcus Marr – High Times

We’re a little late on this one but my god how much I love thee track ‘High Times’.  I’ve had the edit version of this on practically 24/7 since I first heard it last week.  Bliss. Bliss. Bliss.
