Moths is the project of Jack Colleran from County Kildare (not to be confused with a very shortlived indie-pop band from London circa 2007 that Google may try and direct you to. Sort it out Google) and has been quiet over recent months, so it's good news to hear the minimal electronic talent again. Taken from Bon Iver's Blood Bank EP, Colleran has transformed and deconstructed 'Babys' into a beautiful, diaphanous number of Nicholas Jaar-esque minimalism.

'Midnight City' by M83 has been attacked by Team Ghost and Man Without Country, both in a very loving and beautiful fashion. The remix game is always a bit and hit miss, but both artists have added their own flavour to the original track, without suffocating the life out of what made it so good in the first place.
