We’re starting up some regular features from this month onwards after feedback saying “can we get playlists of the tracks YMR is recommending so we can play it on lazy work afternoons?” so we thought we’d oblige.  We’re gonna start hitting you up with monthly Spotify playlists and from next week we’ll also hit you...

The Knocks – Modern Hearts Ft. St. Lucia

It’s an epic track from an epic combo.  It’s a sure fire #1 for Hype Machine.  It’s The Knocks featuring St. Lucia with the track ‘Modern Hearts’.  Seriously.  Does it get any better or closer than this?
Duke Dumont vs Azealia Banks - Need U 212% (Thriftshop XL Mashup)

Duke Dumont vs Azealia Banks – Need U 212% (Thriftshop XL Mashup)

Janet Jackson - Someone To Call My Lover (Giraffage Remix)

Janet Jackson – Someone To Call My Lover (Giraffage Remix)

This one starts a little odd but soon slips into Giraffage remix territory in now time.  Janet Jackson’s track ‘Someone To Call My Lover’ given a modern twist but also a retro feel too.  Perfect.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Sacrilege (The Third Remix)

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Sacrilege (The Third Remix)

We do love a good Yeah Yeah Yeah remix as they’re few and far between.  This one fortunately ticks the boxes and floats our remix boat!
Kendrick Lamar - Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe (Madeaux Remix)

Kendrick Lamar – Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe (Madeaux Remix)

YES! Madeaux drops a fine remix of Kenrdick Lamar’s ‘Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe’.  Ain’t no vibes being killed here by Madeaux.  It’s all eargold ahoy.
Taylor Swift - 22 (Remix) Feat. Hans Inglish

Taylor Swift – 22 (Remix) Feat. Hans Inglish

This is awesome! Taylor Swift mixed featuring Hans Inglish.  It sounds natural.  It sounds perfect.  It’s just what the doctor ordered to get us over the hump day.
Viceroy & French Horn Rebellion - Friday Nights

Viceroy & French Horn Rebellion – Friday Nights

Look. I’m not psychic but even I can tell you that one look at the line up on this track is sure to make one tidy track for the ears. I’m not sure how many sad ballads about Friday nights have been written but this ain’t one of them. No sir! Far from it!
Little Boots - Broken Record (Hackman Remix)

Little Boots – Broken Record (Hackman Remix)

We are counting down to the release of Little Boots 2nd album Nocturnes and we can’t wait I tell you! Fortunate then that a remix of ‘Broken Record’ has dropped and we can keep the goodness flowing until the album drops.
Ciara - Body Party (WMNSTUDIES Remix)

Ciara – Body Party (WMNSTUDIES Remix)

I can tell you this! Apple auto correct does not like the word WMNSTUDIES at all. Fortunately we love it, love the mixes and especially love this mix.
Flume - Left Alone ft. Chet Faker (Ta-Ku Remix)

Flume – Left Alone ft. Chet Faker (Ta-Ku Remix)

Well then. Here’s another fine mix you’ve gotten me into. Ta-Ku taps up a fine version of Australia’s man of the moment Flume and his track with Chet Faker ‘Left Alone’.
Owl Eyes - Nightswim (Free Download)

Owl Eyes – Nightswim (Free Download)

Owl Eyes drops the title track from her forthcoming album ‘Nightswim’ as a free download.  You better get in quick as this won’t be up for long.  Not only is it free, it is another example of how mighty her debut album is going to be.  
XXYYXX - ABOUT U (Mist Glider x Aeropsia Remix)

XXYYXX – ABOUT U (Mist Glider x Aeropsia Remix)

Yum to this! Mist Glider and Aeropsia drop an exquisite remix of XXYYXX and the track ‘About You’. Definite eargold time folks!

Cillie Barnes - Brainwash

Cillie Barnes – Brainwash

Cillie Barnes drops her new track ‘Brainwash’ and it’s labelled Gyp-Hop!  A fair assessment.  It’s definitely a firecracker of a track. Boom!
