  • New music to weekdays (22 April, 2015)

    Sam Smith – Lay Me Down (Tiësto Remix) (CAP/EMI)
    Walk the Moon – Shut Up + Dance (SME)
    Boney M – Rasputin (Bassflow 4.0 Remix) (SME)
    Nathaniel – Flava (SME) [AU]

    Kicking off our new music this week is DJ Tiësto’s remix of Sam Smith’s latest single, ‘Lay Me Down’.

    American indie rock band Walk the Moon formed in 2008 and have two studio albums under their belt with Sony Music, but their latest single has taken the charts by storm both in the USA and here in Australia. Shut Up + Dance is a ridiculous nod to just about every eighties song you’ve ever liked.

    Aussie soul-pop singer-songwriter Nathaniel returns to our airwaves with his fourth release since X Factor 2013. ‘Flava’ delivers something slightly different once again, continuing to demonstrate Nathaniel’s style progression. A debut album is expected later this year.

    Last but by no means least, we round out our new additions with a celebratory remix of a number one hit from 1978. It’s 40 years since Boney M creator Frank Farian released ‘Baby Do You Wanna Bump’ and to celebrate Sony have released ‘Diamonds – 40th Anniversary edition’ a 53-track triple CD pack. It includes a fantastic new remix of ‘Rasputin’ from Swedish producer Bassflow. We really couldn’t resist.

    Set your alarm and tune into Rochén and Michael on the six at six for the newest songs to the mix, every weekday at 6am Melbourne time.

     
  • New music to weekdays (15 April, 2015)

    At Sunset – Every Little Thing (WMA) [AU]
    Josef Salvat – Open Season (LIB/MUSH) [AU]
    Sia – Big Girls Cry (INE) [AU]
    Guy Sebastian – Tonight Again (Short Edit) (SME) [AU]
    Florence + The Machine – Ship to Wreck (UMA)

    Hark back to September 2012 when JOY introduced you to a hot new independent trio from Adelaide, At Sunset. More than two years later, a ton of hard work from the boys and more than a million followers on social media have caused the bigwigs at Warner Music to take notice. The boys hit our airwaves with Every Little Thing, their debut single with a major label.

    Already well established internationally, Sydney-via-London singer-songwriter Josef Salvat is poised to permeate the Australian music scene with ‘Open Season’. The single is currently being featured on a series of Home & Away TV promos, which won’t hurt Josef’s chances of getting noticed.

    California-based Aussie superstar Sia returns with another surefire hit. Big Girls Cry is the third single from 1000 Forms of Fear.

    Australia’s historic entry into the Eurovision Song Contest will feature the Aussie chart-topping singer-songwriter Guy Sebastian with his song Tonight Again. With no plans for it to be officially serviced to radio, we’ll be playing this one on behalf of the whole country. Good luck, Guy.

    A quickfire follow-up to last month’s Florence + The Machine top 20 hit ‘What Kind of Man’, ‘Ship to Wreck’ is the second single from the band’s new album, How Big How Blue How Beautiful (due for release 29 May), and a big, brash, bold pop anthem in the making.

    Martin Garrix ft. Usher – Don’t Look Down (SME)
    Karise Eden – Loneliness (UMA) [AU]
    Who is Fancy – Goodbye (UMA)

    Kicking off our new music this week is Dutch singer-songwriter-rapper Mr Probz. Backing up his Australian top five hit ‘Waves’ (Robin Schulz remix), he’s back with ‘Nothing Really Matters’ helped out with an unexpectedly gentle remix from EDM hitmaker Afrojack.

    Another up-and-coming Dutch producer is 18-year-old Martin Garrix and his collaboration with Usher, ‘Don’t Look Down’, is sure to propel him to new heights.

    Who is Fancy? He is Nashville-based singer-songwriter-musician Jake ‘Fancy’ Hagood. His debut single, Goodbye, is a viral sensation and a real earworm.

    Aussie platinum-selling singer-songwriter returns to our airwaves with another soul-infused pop anthem, ‘Loneliness’.

    Justice Crew – I Love My Life (SME) [AU]
    Rachel Platten – Fight Song (SME)
    Brandon Flowers – Can’t Deny My Love (UMA)

    Our new music this week kicks off with Melbourne-based out-and-proud producer John von Ahlen’s Parralox. Following on from last year’s highly acclaimed cover of ‘Eye in the Sky’ and more recently ‘Crying on the Dance Floor’, ‘Aeronaut’ is another flawless production with a swag of remixes to suit every taste.

    Australia’s most successful dance-pop group, Justice Crew, return with a new single and new video for I Love My Life. The video showcases their singing, dancing and athleticism, captured using a one-shot camera technique in the western Sydney suburb of Parramatta.

    American singer-songwriter Rachel Platten, already making her mark through a sync with popular TV program Revenge, debuts in Australia with ‘Fight Song.

    The frontman for American pop-rock group The Killers, Brandon Flowers, has kept us waiting five years for his sophomore solo album. ‘Can’t Deny My Love’ leads the way, with the album due for release on 18 May.

  • New music to weekdays (25 March, 2015)

    Reece Mastin – Rebel and the Reason (SFR) [AU]
    Of Monsters and Men – Crystals (UMA)
    Dash Berlin and John Dahlback ft. BullySongs – Never Let You Go (ONE/SME)

    Kicking off our additions this week is the Australian 2011 X Factor winner, Reece Mastin. After three years with Sony Music, a debut platinum-selling album and three top 5 singles, he’s elected to go his own way as an independent. ‘Rebel and the Reason’ is the title track from his forthcoming EP.

    Icelandic five-piece indie folk-pop group Of Monsters and Men scored an Australian #1 with their debut album in 2012. The first single, ‘Crystals’, from the band’s forthcoming second album is set to make its mark too.

    The guys behind Dutch trance project Dash Berlin have been making their mark in that genre since 2007. They’ve recently teamed up with Swedish house producer John Dahlback and UK producer-singer-songwriter BullySongs to create an epic high-energy vocal track we think you will enjoy.

    Axwell /\ Ingrosso – On My Way (DEF/EMI)
    Madonna – Ghosttown (UMA)
    Hunter Hayes – Light Me Up (pop mix) (ATL/WMA)

    A trio of additions to weekdays rounds out a big week of new music here at JOY.

    The Swedish duo who came out of the end of the Swedish House Mafia juggernaut, Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso, return with their second single, On My Way, following up their Billboard dance chart #1 ‘Something New’.

    Madonna’s Rebel Heart topped out the Australian album charts this week and her second single, ‘Ghosttown’, hits the airwaves and will hopefully make a bigger mark on the singles chart than ‘Living for Love’ did earlier this year.

    A 23-year-old American country singer, Hunter Hayes, is launched in the UK and Australian markets with a pop rework of his 2011 release, ‘Light Me Up’.

    Ricky Martin ft. Pitbull – Mr. Put It Down (SME)
    Tim Omaji – Something About You (SME) [AU]
    Nervo – It Feels (SME) [AU]

    Here’s a stack of new music you’ll be hearing weekdays on JOY.

    Kicking us off is Sydney duo Midnight Pool Party with their latest disco triumph, this time produced by Adelaide’s Luke Million.

    Independent local fave Ben Hazlewood is back with another heartfelt power ballad, helped out by his 2012 The Voice co-contestant Mali Koa Hood.

    Out-and-proud Melbourne-based producer James Fraser, aka Stereolove, returns to our airwaves with a stunning remake of the classic Fleetwood Mac hit of 1979, ‘Sara’.

    The Freemasons have tweaked ‘True Love Survivor’ from their 2014 Shakedown 3 album, with the single release due 18 April.

    UK artist Florrie has been on our watch list for quite a while as an independent. Her latest single, with support from major label Sony Music UK, is a pop sensation we couldn’t resist.

    German eurodance trio Cascada have reworked a song they wrote together prior to Cascada officially forming back in 2004. Reason is classic Cascada.

    The ‘Call Me Maybe’ sensation of 2012, Carly Rae Jepsen, is back with a kicker. I Really Like You has chalked up more than 10 million views in 10 days and is destined to be another worldwide smash hit.

    The UK’s Jess Glynne has clocked up three major hits with Clean Bandit. Her second solo single, ‘Hold My Hand’, should get her the direct attention she deserves.

    The first single for Jason Derulo from his forthcoming sixth studio album, ‘Want to Want Me’, returns him to a more pop-oriented sound – and we’re liking it.

    Conrad Sewell is currently based in the USA, but he’s a Brissy boy who’s coming home to support Ed Sheeran’s Australian tour. We think you’ll enjoy Hold Me Up.

    Florida-based reggae singer Lunchmoney Lewis has taken the pop world by storm with Bills. We couldn’t resist this fun little ditty.

    Britain’s Paloma Faith returns to our airwaves with another masterpiece penned by Diane Warren in Leave While I’m Not Leaving.

    Out-and-proud Puerto Rican singer, actor, and author Ricky Martin has teamed up with Pitbull for his latest, and we think Mr. Put it Down is actually pretty darn good.

    Aussie singer-songwriter-dancer Tim Omaji has dropped his Timomatic moniker, and ‘Something About You’ is a heartfelt mid-tempo pop-ballad that is sure to please all the romantics.

    The Aussie twins originally from Ivanhoe here in suburban Melbourne, Mim and Liv Nervo, are fast becoming one of our most successful musical exports ever. As producers, singers, songwriters and DJs, their latest single, ‘It’s Time’, shows they don’t need any help and can do it all on their own.

  • New music to weekdays (February 25, 2015)

    Madeon ft. Passion Pit – Pay No Mind (SME)
    Passion Pit ft Madeon – Lifted Up (1985) (SME)
    Maroon 5 – Sugar (UMA)
    Florence + the Machine – What Kind of Man (ISL/UMA)
    Zedd ft. Selena Gomez – I Want You to Know (UMA)

    Because of a slightly left-of-centre strategy from Sony Music this week, we kick off our new listings with two tracks by the same artists. The first is Pay No Mind from French producer Madeon’s debut album, Adventure, featuring American indie-electronica band Passion Pit. The second is Lifted Up, from Passion Pit’s forthcoming third album, Kindred, featuring Madeon.

    Maroon 5 are back at the top of end of the charts with the third single, Sugar, from their fifth album, V.

    British singer-songwriter Florence Welch surprised the music world this week by dropping the first single from a forthcoming Florence + the Machine album. What Kind of Man is already top 20 in Australia, which is the band’s highest chart placing since 2012’s ‘Spectrum’.

    On the back of those rumours around the level of collaboration going on (we’re hearing wedding bells, apparently), German-Russian producer Zedd has dropped his next single featuring former Disney starlet Selena Gomez. We think ‘I Want You to Know’ has a good chance of doing as well for Selena as Zedd’s ‘Break Free’ did for Ariana Grande.

    Alesso ft. Roy English – Cool (EMI)
    Miami Horror ft. Cleopold – Love Like Mine (RC) [AU]
    Bette Midler – One Fine Day (WMUK)

    Swedish DJ-producer Alesso kicks off our new music this week with Cool, and while the sample is pretty darn obvious, it seems the original artist is quite happy with the nod.

    Melbourne boys Miami Horror have been splitting their time between home and the USA over the last couple of years, and their new album now has a release date set for late April. The second single, ‘Love Like Mine’, is another strong dream-pop offering.

    And last but by no means least this week, we just couldn’t resist picking up the first single lifted from the Divine Miss M’s dedication to the great girl groups over the last century. ‘One Fine Day’ is a cover of The Chiffons’ 1963 hit.

    Set your alarm and tune into Rochén and Michael on the six at six for the newest songs to the mix, every weekday at 6am Melbourne time.

     
  • New music to weekdays (February 11, 2015)

    Paul Mac ft. Kira Puru & Goodwill – State of War (ELEVEN) [AU]
    Say Lou Lou – Nothing but a Heartbeat (A’Deux Records) [AU]
    Fear of Dawn ft. Boswell – Alright (ONE/SME) [AU]
    Paris Lover – Feel Me (ONE/SME)
    Tilarni – Survivor (IND) [AU]
    Years & Years – King (UMA)
    Charli XCX ft. Rita Ora – Doing It (ATL/WMA)
    Taylor Swift – Style (UMA)
    Ariana Grande – One Last Time (UMA)
    Jessica Mauboy – The Day Before I Met You (SME) [AU]

    Kicking off our new music additions this week is LGBTIQ royalty Paul Mac – the ARIA-winning electro-pop singer-songwriter, producer and remixer. After almost nine years, State of War is the lead single from Paul’s highly anticipated third studio album.

    We have more Aussie tunes from: Say Lou Lou, the independent sibling duo and daughters of The Church’s Steve Kilbey; Tilarni, a local independent singer-songwriter; and Sydney’s Fear of Dawn. And of course we rarely pass on an opportunity to spin a new Jessica Mauboy tune.

    UK trio Years & Years are our new favourite import and ‘Kings’ is their best release yet, following up their massive hit collaboration with The Magician late last year.

    Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, and Charli XCX with Rita Ora also provide lots of cool new pop tunes we know you’re going to like.

    Set your alarm and tune into Rochén and Michael on the six at six for the newest songs to the mix, every weekday at 6am Melbourne time.
