Katy B – Witches Brew (Diplo Remix)

Diplo is the man with the mix plan and he’s definitely cast an awesome spell over Katy B’s track ‘Witches Brew’.  This mix has tinkered with ‘Witches Brew’ to fine effect and we love it.

Lore - No Better

Lore – No Better

Here’s a new track from Erol Sabadosh’s new solo project Lore with the track ‘No Better’.  Your Music Radar has drifted into a different kind of territory with this one that is hard to describe….think Placebo/Depeche Mode (circa. Songs of Faith & Devotion).  We like it a lot.
Deadmau5 - Closer

Deadmau5 – Closer

A sneaky Deadmau5 track called ‘Closer’ posted as a work in progress under his Fuck My Life (Joel Zimmerman) posting.  A quality quality tune!!!

LMFAO - Sorry For Partyrocking (R3hab Remix)

LMFAO – Sorry For Partyrocking (R3hab Remix)

Can R3hab do no wrong with mixing a great tune? Off the back of his recent Adrian Lux remix and this fine tune tinkering for LMFAO with their track ‘Sorry For Partyrocking’ we’d say no right now to that question.  This mix is quality!!!
Ellie Goulding - Your Song (Butch Clancy Remix)

Check out the new video by Jhameel for his track ‘Waves’ that has freshly dropped.    This is a great video to an awesome song.  If you haven’t caught his performance of ‘Blackbird’ by The Beatles you should also check it out too.  It’s quite excellent.

Tommie Sunshine & Disco Fries - Don't Look Back

Tommie Sunshine & Disco Fries – Don’t Look Back

It’s big tune time and they don’t come much bigger than ‘Don’t Look Back’ by Tommie Sunshine & Disco Fries. Unless that is, you’ve got a platter of remixes to listen to plus a damn fine video too.  Well, it’s the trifecta of tunetastic house here!!!!
All Things Gotye + The Basics

All Things Gotye + The Basics

Archive time again.  If you are Australian, it is highly likely that you will know these tunes from a few years back by Gotye.  However, we reckon that the rest of the world getting into Gotye’s current smash ‘Somebody I Used To Know’ might not be familiar with this old classic track ‘Hearts A Mess’...
David Gray - Forgetting / January Rain

David Gray – Forgetting / January Rain

Here’s a different post for you.  Two of my favourite David Gray songs that more than likely have slipped under most people’s radar for a long period of time but should be highlighted to the masses.
Laidback Luke Feat. Wynter Gordon - Speak Up (Original Mix)

Laidback Luke Feat. Wynter Gordon – Speak Up (Original Mix)

Another big tune by Laidback Luke featuring up and comer for 2012 Wynter Gordon (check her out at SXSW in Austin).  So what makes ‘Speak Up’ a monster tune?  I’ll tell you what, try flicking to the 1 minute 17 seconds mark on this one and you’ll hear a thunderous line that will vibrate your...

Sounds From The Cloud: Jan 2012

Yes….we’re mid way through February already aren’t we and so far the music of 2012 has been rather tasty.  Whether you live in YMR land or potter around in your own little world, there is no denying that there’s been some good ‘well heard’ tracks and some great ‘unheard’ tracks.
Patrick Hagenaar Feat. AMPM - L.O.V.E. (You Give The)

Patrick Hagenaar Feat. AMPM – L.O.V.E. (You Give The)

It’s tracks like this that make us do what we do.  Patrick Hagenaar has brought us an outstanding track ‘L.O.V.E (You Give The)’ in Vocal Mix form and also in a quite marvellous Ghosts of Venice Remix track too, all on Hed Kandi.  If we had a category for ‘HUGE TIP’ then this is one!!!...
Lights - Toes (Nightbox Remix)

Lights – Toes (Nightbox Remix)

Back in October last year (in Australia), we went out and made a fine purchase of the album ‘Siberia’ by Lights and loved it so much we posted about it.  In fact, we’ve had it on our playlist ever since.
Digital Cosmic Disco - The Modern Glory

Digital Cosmic Disco – The Modern Glory

If Justice and SebastiAn ever collaborated with Daft Punk on a cosmic disco rock track, then I imagine this is as close to what you’d get.    Hard to comprehend?  Take a listen and you’ll be surprised at how good ‘The Modern Glory’ is by Digital Cosmic Disco.
Summer Camp - Losing My Mind (St. Etienne Remix)

Summer Camp – Losing My Mind (St. Etienne Remix)

Saint Etienne have worked some magic with Summer Camp’s track ‘Losing My Mind’.  It’s all subtle but they’ve made a great track into a special one with a lo-fi vibe.  It’s quality indeed.

HOT! This track is sizzling!  Martin Solveig has dropped his track ‘The Night Out’ and it has been given some outstanding remix treatment by A-Trak.
All Things Owsey

All Things Owsey

You know that moment when you feel like you’ve struck gold.  We definitely had that feeling listening to Owsey’s remix of Gotye’s ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ which also has a very very subtle hint of ‘Hearts A Mess’ dropped in for good measure.  This is one dreamy affair of a remix.
Adrian Lux - Fire (R3hab Remix)

Adrian Lux – Fire (R3hab Remix)

Wowsers!!!  R3hab has remixed this into perfection!!! Adrian Lux and his track ‘Fire’ is pretty amazing anyway but this remix is a stunner!!!  And what about that image too?  Best pic in a while we say!!!

A Catch Up With Kimbra: SXSW Music Interview

2011 was a big year for Kimbra which was rounded out quite nicely by picking up the ARIA award for Best Female Artist in Australia.  It was also a jam packed hard working year too.  There was the release of the album Vows (in Australia and New Zealand), the accompanying single releases ‘Settle Down’, ‘Good...

Childish Gambino - Heartbeat (Tommie Sunshine & Disco Fries Remix)

Childish Gambino – Heartbeat (Tommie Sunshine & Disco Fries Remix)

Tommie Sunshine and Disco Fries have added some god like ‘Hardbeats’ to this track by Childish Gambino. Heartbeat is a great track and this hard house version might appeal to a different audience to the original but there’s no denying it’s a thumper of a remix.
