Following this FooR released remixes of Whitney Houston’s - “How Will I Know” & Ultra Nate’s “Free” that both reached number 1 on the DJ city UK downloads chart, the Ultra Nate remix was the most downloaded track on DJ City for the whole of January & reached number 2 in the Hype Machine most popular on twitter chart, establishing the foursome in new territories outside of the UK.

At the end of 2015 FooR signed a deal with Believe Digital to launch their own label “Yosh”. In December “Stand Up” was FooR's first release on the label, it was Mistajams inbox fresh. On the second release FooR and James Hype went head to head early this year both doing versions of the same single “Wait FooR Me” and encouraged people to choose a favourite, Mistajam played both versions as his inbox fresh (the first time ever 2 tracks have featured as his inbox fresh) FooR have released 2 compilation albums on the label, Yosh Vol 1 & 2, these both reached the top 3 in the iTunes dance chart! Their tour to promote the first album saw them play 30 dates across the globe.
FooR have also hosted 4 sell out Yosh events in the last year, as well as hosting their own stage at the Isle Of Wight Festival! Last year FooR became festival favourites playing some of the UK biggest festivals including EDC, Isle Of Wight, Bestival, Garage Nation to name a few. FooR - “Vibes Machine” from Yosh Vol 2 has been in heavy rotation on Radio 1 & Xtra this year picking up several plays from both Mistajam & Target on their new shows
