Oliver Tank - Dreams (Remixed)

Oliver Tank – Dreams (Remixed)

You wait for one golden nugget to come along and two come along in the same day.  The first being Oliver Tank’s remixed Dreams EP and the second being the long awaited Lana Del Rey album.  We have to say though, we were far more ecstatic at this one coming out though.  
Dash Berlin feat. Jonathan Mendelsohn - World Falls Apart

Dash Berlin feat. Jonathan Mendelsohn – World Falls Apart

Ooooh yes!!!!  We’re big fans of Dash Berlin and this track just resonates all the great things of a good trance tune!!!  This really reminds us of the early glory days of Armin Van Buuren (pre massive arena days). Love this A LOT!!!

Lana Del Rey - Radio

Lana Del Rey – Radio

We heard a sneak peek of the track ‘Radio’ this week from Lana Del Rey’s up and coming album ‘Born To Die’ and we reckon that this track is going to be an absolute smash.  This is definitely Lana’s secret weapon on her soon to be released album.
Outasight - Tonight Is The Night (Remixes)

Outasight – Tonight Is The Night (Remixes)

Back in September, we did a feature on Outasight and his track ‘Tonight is The Night’ as a little number that we thought might just go off big style in the coming months.  The video on YouTube has now had over 2 million hits and the track has now rocked up just short of a 100,000 hits...

M.I.A. – /\/\ /\ Y /\, Kala & Arular Album Streaming

Ed Sheeran – Drunk (Lazy J & Rudimental Remixes)

Ed Sheeran is another hot artist in the UK at the moment.  Nominated for a Brit Award and lined up as a SXSW showcasing artist, it is definitely a good new year for him already and we are only in January.
Grimes - Genesis

Grimes – Genesis

We know that this track might be old news to a lot of you but it’s fair to say that we are quite addicted to this track at the moment and we felt that it should be shared with you.  Plain and simply, the intro on this track is one of the best intros ever....

Mashup-Germany - Every Teardrop Has A Super Bass

Mashup-Germany – Every Teardrop Has A Super Bass

This is so goooood.  The best Mashup this month and we’ve heard a few.  In fact, if you have an aversion to mash ups, don’t worry as this is a seamless mix that sounds as good as the originals.
Moskva-Kassiopeya - Odyssey EP

Ladyhawke – Black White & Blue

The first single from Ladyhawke’s new album Anxiety is about to drop and it’s called ‘Black White and Blue’.  It’s a quality track from an album that is going to be a smash.  How do we know?  We caught her at The Tote last year when she previewed her new tracks and there wasn’t a...

Phil Collins - In the Air Tonight (Cosmo Black Remix)

Phil Collins – In the Air Tonight (Cosmo Black Remix)

Cosmo Black is a Melbourne based artist/producer that has the magic remix touch.  I say magic, as he’s taken a Phil Collins track and made it a very pleasurable experience.  So much so, that ‘In The Air Tonight’ has been given the Cosmo Black treatment that just sounds so damn good!!!
The Beloved - Sweet Harmony (Levantine Remix)

The Beloved – Sweet Harmony (Levantine Remix)

Another mighty fine remix has washed up on our shores and this one comes in the fine form of The Beloved’s track ‘Sweet Harmony’ mixed by Levantine.

Miami Horror – I Look To You (Feat. Kimbra)

It’s Australia day today, so we’re feeling all celebratory about all things Australia and Melbourne!!!!  There’s so many artists and tracks that we could pick up and play today but for some reason we’ve found ourselves drawn back to this little number from Melbourne’s Miami Horror, featuring Kimbra.
Saint Etienne - Tonight

Saint Etienne – Tonight

To say we were pleased that Saint Etienne have brought a new track out after 7 years in an understatement.  Not only that, the new track ‘Tonight’ is pretty awesome too and they’ve not lost any of their sparkle at all.
Childish Gambino - Heartbeat (Oliver Remix)

Childish Gambino – Heartbeat (Oliver Remix)

WOW!  That’s what we thought when we heard this mix of Childish Gambino’s track ‘Heartbeat’ by Oliver.  If Oliver were destined for big things with their own tracks in 2012, this remix is going to make them go off like a firework over the next few days and beyond.

Polar Dear are two guys from Budapest and Montreal that know how to carry a pop tune and carry a pop video.  ’Even If I’m Late’ is a catchy one!!!
The White Buffalo

The White Buffalo

The White Buffalo has just hit our radar and we think this guy rocks big time!!!  With a voice like Ocean Colour Scene and the beats of a folky Iggy Pop,  if we’d have heard of him a couple of weeks prior, we’d definitely have him on our 2012 watch list for sure.
DiscoSocks - Boogie / Voodoo

DiscoSocks – Boogie / Voodoo

The tracks that DiscoSocks has been putting out have been an absolute feast for the senses and these two tracks ‘Boogie Hour’ and ‘Voodoo’ are stompers for 2012 and beyond!!!

Gotye - Somebody That I Used To Know (AZEDIA Remix)

Gotye – Somebody That I Used To Know (AZEDIA Remix)

We didn’t think we’d be putting up another mix of Gotye’s track ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’…but….after we heard this one, it would be madness to not pass this on to you.  It’s not quite like any other mix you’ll have heard.
The Other Tribe - Don't Need No Melody

The Other Tribe – Don’t Need No Melody

There’s something going on in the jungle drums of The Other Tribe and we like it.   House music fused with tribal sounds is always a winner in our ears and eyes and we think The Other Tribe have nailed it!!!

Freedom Fry - Tallest Dreams

Freedom Fry – Tallest Dreams

Wow, we heard the track ‘Tallest Dreams’ yesterday and on first listen we were hung hung hungry for more.  So much more, that we stuck it on repeat for another 3 plays.  We then played their track ‘Stop Stop Stop’ and it was more of a case of Play Play Play.
DJ Yaleidys - Sun In Cuba (Featuring Jimmy Barnes)

Dance music + Jimmy Barnes?  Yes, we thought that too.  DJ Yaleidys has got a track out called ‘Sun In Cuba’ and it features Jimmy Barnes from Cold Chisel. You know what, it works!!!
Portugal The Man - I'd Rather Go Blind (Etta James Cover)

Portugal The Man – I’d Rather Go Blind (Etta James Cover)

Etta James sadly passed away at the age of 73 after a battle with leukaemia.

Emma Hewitt - Colours (Armin Van Buuren Remix)

Emma Hewitt – Colours (Armin Van Buuren Remix)

Emma Hewitt is on the verge of something big we reckon.  Her new track ‘Colours’ has been given the remix treatment by Armin Van Buuren and Jerome Isma-Ae and both the original and remixed tracks are smashes!!!
Adrian Lux - Teenage Crime (Stereotronique Remix)

Adrian Lux – Teenage Crime (Stereotronique Remix)

We adore the original version of Adrian Lux’s track ‘Teenage Crime’ so when a remix comes along it will take a lot for us to be happy with it.  But, Stereotronique have given us all a mix that takes the original track and adds a little twist to it.
Kimbra - Two Way Street + Remixes

Kimbra – Two Way Street + Remixes

2011 was a mighty year for Kimbra (she was on our 2011 watch list too) with her ‘Best Female Artist’ ARIA award and the bonus combo of featuring on the also mighty Gotye’s ‘Somebody That I Used To Know. Not content with just having a stellar year, Kimbra is forging a mightier path into 2012...
