YMR Guest Mix by Moiez

YMR Guest Mix by Moiez

Is there a better way to start our YMR Guest Mix Series than with Moiez? We think not. Especially when this 1hr mix features brand new exclusive tracks from Moiez himself and more.
YMR Premiere: Marya Stark - Crossroads (Official Video)

YMR Premiere: Marya Stark – Crossroads (Official Video)

Here’s a YMR Premiere for a track that is at the other end of the spectrum away from all the EDM that we normally feature.  Marya Stark’s official video for ‘Crossroads’ has well and truly knocked us for six.
YMR Exclusive Remix: Elizabeth Rose - Sensibility (TOKiMONSTA Remix)

YMR Exclusive Remix: Elizabeth Rose – Sensibility (TOKiMONSTA Remix)

My word. This YMR Exclusive Remix from LA’s TOKiMONSTA is undeniably one of the best hand of god(dess) remix touches that Elizabeth Rose has received so far. 
Latest entries
Jamie xx - Girl

Jamie xx – Girl

We wouldn’t make an effort to fall over ourselves for a new Jamie xx track. However, we’d definitely rather take this track ‘Girl’ than leave it.  Boat floating stuff.
DJ Cassidy feat. Robin Thicke & Jessie J - Calling All Hearts (Frankie Knuckles & Eric Kupper Remix)

DJ Cassidy feat. Robin Thicke & Jessie J – Calling All Hearts (Frankie Knuckles & Eric Kupper Remix)

Frankie Knuckles’ last ever remix has been released for DJ Cassidy’s track ‘Calling All Hearts’ which features Robin Thicke and Jessie J.  As upbeat and quality as this remix is, it makes be a bit sad that goodness like this isn’t coming from FK anymore.
Tiësto - Wasted (ft. Matthew Koma)

Tiësto – Wasted (ft. Matthew Koma)

This is indeed a summer anthem and a half! Tiësto hits you between the ears with new track ‘Wasted’ featuring Matthew Koma.  This feels more like a Martin Solveig track than a Tiësto track.
Adventure Club - Gold Feat. Yuna (Clark Kent Remix)

Adventure Club – Gold Feat. Yuna (Clark Kent Remix)

This Clark Kent remix of Adventure Club’s track ‘Gold’ begins and ends just as you’d want this mix to be.  There’s no wandering off of the house reservation here.  It’s a pure beauty.
Disclosure - When A Fire Starts To Burn (Steezmonks' Remix)

Disclosure – When A Fire Starts To Burn (Steezmonks’ Remix)

We know Disclosure do house very well. Who’d have thought that a jazzed up house mix with a splash of sax behind the ears for good measure would also turn up a treat for this duo.
Lorde - Tennis Court (Flume Remix)

Lorde – Tennis Court (Flume Remix)

Say hello to a pretty huge remix from Flume.  Lorde gets taken into a dark place with ‘Tennis Court’ getting a clubbed up mix from the Flumester.
YMR Track of the Week: Thief - Closer (Acoustic Version)

YMR Track of the Week: Thief – Closer (Acoustic Version)

Yes yes yes! Thief takes his bouncy poppy track ‘Closer’ and strips it back into Bon Iver territory.  This version is probably destined to gain far more attention than the original mix. This is definitely the YMR track of the week.
Futurecop! - Lost Love (feat. DWNTWN) (Sunglasses Kid Remix)

Futurecop! – Lost Love (feat. DWNTWN) (Sunglasses Kid Remix)

If the original mix of this track wasn’t a dreamy 80s soundtrack kind of tune, this remix definitely is.  We’re talking Three Men & A Baby kind of mix here.  All good mind you.  Very good in fact.
Panama Wedding - All of the People (RAC Mix)

Panama Wedding – All of the People (RAC Mix)

Boom! RAC mixes the fine track ‘All of the People’ by Panama Wedding and this instant eargold.  This keeps everything that you love about the original but seasons it with the mix it deserves.  All of the people should be listening to this.
Chromeo - Jealous (I Ain't With It) Disciples Remix

Chromeo – Jealous (I Ain’t With It) Disciples Remix

We’ve been waiting for this remix to go live so we could share this sexy late night edition of Chromeo’s mighty track.  This is trademark Disciples too and we’re loving-it!
Dawn Golden - All I Want

Dawn Golden – All I Want

Dexter Tortoriello aka Dawn Golden gives us an early riser of a track that encapsulates and beams the longer it goes on.  This is a prime example of the class tracks coming out through the cracks of goodness in 2014.
Coldplay - Midnight (Giorgio Moroder Remix)

Coldplay – Midnight (Giorgio Moroder Remix)

The master that is Giorgio Moroder has given Coldplay’s ‘Midnight’ an official remix that takes Chris Martin and the rest of the band into spaced out disco choral house territory.
ZHU - Faded (Steve James Remix)

ZHU – Faded (Steve James Remix)

Everybody’s going mad for a bit of ZHU right now.  Rightly so too.   If the track ‘Faded’ tickles your fancy and you’re up for a clubbed up remix of it, look no further than the Steve James take on the track.
Lancelot - Ain't Nothin' Goin' On But The Rent (ft. Ngaiire)

Lancelot – Ain’t Nothin’ Goin’ On But The Rent (ft. Ngaiire)

Here it is. The A-Side from the J.O.B. EP feat. Ngaiire.  This cover of Gwen Guthrie’s classic track ’Ain’t Nothin’ Goin’ On But The Rent’ is as silky as a deep house track should be.
Juun feat. Sam Smith - When It's Alright

Juun feat. Sam Smith – When It’s Alright

Easter doesn’t stop the YMR train and this track from Juun featuring the sensational Sam Smith is eargold for sure that will carry you through.
Chromeo - Ezra's Interlude (feat. Ezra Koenig)

Chromeo – Ezra’s Interlude (feat. Ezra Koenig)

I really like this soulful track from Chromeo.  That coming from a man who cannot stand Vampire Weekend is a big statement, particularly when it features their  frontman Ezra Koeig.  In fact, I wish it was much longer.
The Aston Shuffle - Tear It Down (GAMPER & DADONI Remix)

The Aston Shuffle – Tear It Down (GAMPER & DADONI Remix)

Sax people!  Sax attack! The Aston Shuffle’s ‘Tear It Down’ gets a house remix with a sax solo and this remix slow burns into your soul.
Tourist - Patterns (feat. Lianne La Havas)

Tourist – Patterns (feat. Lianne La Havas)

Tourist drops the Patterns EP on April 20th (UK) / 22nd (US) and the title track from the EP which features Lianne La Havas is simply divine.
Coldplay - Magic (Lunar Apex Remix)

Coldplay – Magic (Lunar Apex Remix)

Time for a bit of nu disco funk Coldplay in this Lunar Apex remix of ‘Magic’.  This sits in Aeroplane/Plastic Plates territory.  Nice!
Night Drive - After Dark (Remixes)

Night Drive – After Dark (Remixes)

I’m usually one for being drawn to the remix of a track and here’s a prime selection for ‘After Dark’ from Night Drive.  Saying that, I’m very much into the original of this.  I can’t go past The Cure’like bass line on it.  Sensational.
Stop Here For...House

Stop Here For…House

The Stop Here For… Series is a spin off from our Cloud Sizzlers posts targeted at specific genres of music.  This weeks Stop Here For… is aimed as some quite fabulous house tracks of lightness and darkness that fit together like a jigsaw puzzle.

Nieves - Winter

Nieves – Winter

Glasgow newcomers Nieves hit you up with ‘Winter’ which is the first track release from their debut EP.  This is a very simple but very slick piece of well written folk music.
DJ Fresh VS TC - Make U Bounce

DJ Fresh VS TC – Make U Bounce

Following on from his massive collaborations with Diplo on ‘Earthquake’ and Jay Fay on ‘Dibby Dibby Sound’, DJ Fresh is back with his new single ‘Make U Bounce’, a production collaboration with D&B legend TC.
Beastie Boys - Root Down (Cyclist Disco Mix)

Beastie Boys – Root Down (Cyclist Disco Mix)

We’re keeping today’s disco theme going with this Cyclist remix of ‘Root Down’ from The Beastie Boys.  The funked up baseline on this one is just funking crazy.
