Over the years, we've had the pleasure of hearing quite a few remixes of Cassie's classic "Me & U". Yesterday, this version by Toronto based producer GOVI was brought to my attention. Maybe it's because I really enjoy a good UK house track, maybe it's because "Me & U" is just a dope track....maybe it's a bit of both, hehe :) The deep vibe works wonders though and the slight sidechain effect gives the remix some nice dynamics, making it quite bouncy too. Give it a spin below.

Haiti based producer Michael Brun strikes back with a new single called "Jupiter" feat. Roy English & Uni. I'm always a sucker for a good duet and when the production is tight, the melody catchy and the lyrics awesome, then I'm sold. Appropriately for the title, "Jupiter" has an atmospheric and lush modern pop vibe. The beat is also quite interesting, borrowing elements from trap on the drop, but also traditional house on the verses. "Jupiter" is out now on Kit Coconut and you can stream it here or via Spotify (see link below). Enjoy!

Today's first tune comes from NYC based producer Ian Spurrier, but maybe you know him better as Fareoh. He's just released a new single called "Illegal" feat. Katelyn Tarver. It's a melodic marble that's hitting the sweet spot between electronic and modern pop music just right in my opinion. When the strings come in things start to become interesting and it opens up the track. The drop gets my personal earworm seal of approval and will probably get stuck in your head too if you just hit the play button below.

Up next is a remix by LA based producer tyDi for The Chainsmokers' "All We Know". The gain in tempo works really well here and it makes the vocal sound bouncy in a really awesome way. The drop is bass driven with a vocal chop, but even with that overused effect I find the remix is really well rounded and crisp sounding. Let me know what you think?

Déjà Vu indeed....MYWLT is back...back at it again with great music, from great artists. With the end of my hiatus, there's also a change in the blog posting structure. Unlike before, there won't be daily post in the blog for the next 6 months...that's for sure. Everything else is just as usual :)
So let's get things going again with this amazing remix by NYC based Callie Reiff, for Sofi Tukker's hit "Déjà Vu Affair". While the original mix was already kind of clubby, Callie Reiff gives it some extra omph by adding some big sounding drums and catchy vocal driven drop. This gives the track a more grand club sound, making it louder and even more danceable than it was before. Also, considering Callie Reiff's young age (she's just 16 years old), my bet is that there will be a lot more coming from this talented DJ and producer. You can follow her on social media and you can pick up her cracking remix for free (via the links below). Enjoy!

Today marks a special day for the blog. After almost 5 years of daily posts this will be my last...at least for a while.
I would like to thank you for checking in and hope that you have found some exciting music and discovered a lot of new artists along the way. At least that was and remains to be the goal of MYWLT.
On a more personal note, besides having been in a position where I got to listen to so much new and diverse music, what I have enjoyed the most has been the communication with readers, artists, management, PR and labels from all over the world. As cheesy as it may sound: music is a universal language, everyone can relate to it and for most of us it's part of our daily life in one way or another. That has been my motivation to write a total of 1780 blog posts, which I hope you have enjoyed.
MYWLT isn't going to disappear, however I feel like it's time to take a break from it all. There's still lots of great music you can discover here on the blog (check the archive) or listen to music from the MYWLT Hype Machine feed.
For my last post, I have chosen two tracks. The first one is a brand new single by Kap Slap called "Harbor" feat. Jake Etheridge. Compared to "Felt This Good", "Harbor" has a more acoustic vibe overall. The track is a mix of indie, pop, trap and tropical house, making it great for easy listening. The drop has a casual vocal chopping melody and although I've sort of grown tired of this type of effect, Kap Slap has still managed to keep it interesting, dynamic and alive sounding. You can stream "Harbor" right here or pick up a copy via Itunes (see link below).

For my last track I have chosen the latest single by CID & Kaskade called "Sweet Memories". It's a proper energetic house tune, thanks to an amazing punchy bass line, a haunting vocal and a hypnotic vibe. Overall it's quite a simple track, but here the rule "less is more" applies and it works out in CID & Kaskade's favor. As a result, "Sweet Memories" so lit, you need a fire extinguisher nearby, before you start listening.
"Sweet Memories" is out now via Arkade and available via most major platforms. Also, make sure to check out the swag music video below.
