After 2015’s Flash Drive EP, Sydney-based producer WAVE RACER is finally back with his fiery and infectious remix of TKAY MAIDZA’s 2016 track, Carry On.

The Michelin Man’s younger hotter deflated brother Marshmello just drop kilos upon kilos of powdery sugar all over Noah Cyrus's breakthrough hit, Make Me Cry. The original bedroom tearjerker has been ripped apart and turned into a dance floor grinder.

Something for your M.I.N.D., the debut single from the mysterious eight piece band Superorganism, is a real thinker in the sense that this goes against everything you think a song should sound like. Even the spelling of the title is a direct analogy to the structure of the composition. In a way it’s sort of an anti song for current mainstream songs.
Dutch producer R3hab has experimented and put out tracks that cover an array of styles and colors within the electronic scene. From big heavy hitting drops and original songs to dark remixes and bigger than life sounds, but none fit him as well as the lush soundscape that make We Are: The Guard readers fall back in love with house music.
