Australian music is hot. We here at LTBN know this. It's not to put down any other countries' music scenes, but in the particular genre of music we focus on, the Aussies seem to be doing it best at the moment. And speaking of moments, look at Shazam growing up right before our eyes. Loved his original stuff (especially Pool Party) but he seems to be doing stuff in the vein of Fred Falke, half Balearic, half French with synth melodies and choruses fading in and out of songs, allowing for the music to have room to breath between more wacky sounds, handclaps and the rhythm sections. Here we find the young prodigy remixing Sneaky Sound System's new single, an effort inclusive of all of his trademarks:

Sneaky Sound System - When We Were Young (Shazam Remix) + (alt)

Next up is an effort between British provocateurs, Dizzee Rascal and Calvin Harris, and they also receive the Shazam treatment to good results. If there's one detriment to Shazam, it is that he doesn't seem to step outside his sound too much; fortunately for us, that's not that big a setback:

Dizzee Rascal ft. Calvin Harris - Dance Wiv Me (Shazam Remix) + (alt)

Listen to these tunes and give Shazam, Sneaky Sound System, Dizzee and Calvin a shoutout.

Bonus: Shazam - Pool Party (Rogerseventytwo Remix) + (alt)
