Remix competition time!!! Your Music Radar has teamed up with Wavo & Warner Music for a remix competition for Australian band Parachute Youth’s debut single ‘Can’t Get Better Than This’.
Another week and another early present for the weekend. Our On Your Radar: YMR Mixtape 7 has dropped early and there’s some Blondie, Capital Cities and a double helping of Lancelot here to get you closer to the weekend. Yes. It’s Friday mixtape day again!
We just can’t stop pumping out these posts. Collarbones and their track ‘Hypothermia’ has grabbed out attention today. Not only does it feature the very fine Guerre but this band is also hitting up some great tuneage here.
It’s taken a little bit of time but this track to get some online momentum but it looks like it’s finally doing it now. Australia’s Emma Louise and her track ‘Mirrors’ is an awesome track that is destined to crank up her presence across the pond in the US.
We did have very strong intentions of not posting many if any mashups or remixes of the new Daft Punk album tracks following the album dropping. However, it’s very difficult when a) you’re being bombarded with those said tracks and b) it would be a shame not share some of the great ones.
I just did a bit of exploration and testing of #Music which is the new streaming music engine from the Twitter and We Are Hunted bods and I have to say it doesn’t really appear to be fair to ‘Unearthed’ artists.
YES! Wolf Colony give the track that featured on the Cruel Intentions soundtrack back in the day some added 2013 cover sparkle with electro beats. Counting Crows always gave us goosebumps with this track and Wolf Colony pull it off.
It turns out that SonnSee has dropped a deep house guitar laden spanish mix/cover of Daft Punk’s track ‘Get Lucky’ too. I couldn’t resist posting this one as it’s definitely out there.
We caught the band BOY when we were at SXSW when we were waiting for Jake Bugg to play. It turned out that BOY were a pleasant surprise and a bloody awesome duo. One of the standout tracks they played was ‘Drive Darling’ which we’ve been on the hunt for to post today.
What a day. Amtrac drops a mighty mix for Toyboy & Robin and the track ‘Jaded’. There’s some audio fruit dropping from the remix tree today. I feel like Isaac Newton getting bombarded with Granny Remix apples.
Another sizzling remix from Them Jeans. Ciara’s ‘Body Party’ has become a house party with this mix of gold.
If the track ‘Julian’ wasn’t enough to get your audio juices (or Julians) flowing from Say Lou Lou, a set of very fine remixes has dropped from the likes of Lancelot (it’s Lancelot week here at YMR), The Chainsmokers who are anything but bad for your health and HNNY who make us HAPPY!
Vicetone drop a sensational remix for Matthew Koma and his track ‘One Night’. A sure fire online hit.
Brooklyn Fire drop a release featuring French producer Oly Grasset, known as D-R-U-N-K. This single is definitely not for the faint of heart; when asked for any info for the promo Brooklyn Fire received an email stating: Acidbath will corrode the brain and drown the bitch in you.
I was only saying recently that Australia’s Owl Eyes and her new album are prime audio fodder for the US. Here comes another awesome remix from the album and this time it’s Goldroom who has dropped some bass bombs on ‘Jewels & Sapphires’.
