“Here’s what we think are the Best Remixes of all time. Our definitive playlist includes records from Armand Van Heldon, Norman Cook, Crookers, MK, Daft Punk, Erol Alkan, Nuxx, Timo Maas, among others. Again we’re leaning on the more commercial end of the Dance Music spectrum. Hit link to listen”…

Best Remixes Ever

We’ve been planning the post for a little while now and with the recent Bicep remix getting everyone all hot and bothered, we figured now is the time to nail our colours to the mast and declare the ‘Greatest Remixes of all Time’. The cynical among you will no doubt disregard this as just another meaningless list, but the fact is we all like compiling and reading lists and therefore we’re confident the contents within will keep the scoffers at bay.

So before we get started what are the criteria for inclusion. Firstly the remix must be an officially commissioned and released track, no random mashups or free Soundcloud downloads. Secondly it must be a remix that has demonstrated its ability to stand the test of time i.e. a bonifidy classic, which means anything in the last 3-4¬†years has largely been ignored as insufficient time has passed in order to verify it’s durability. And finally it must be a remix that has transcended its audience, i.e. a track that has gathered significant cross genre appeal…So if we say “remix” and you say “Tori Amos – Professional Widow (Armand Van Helden)” then its safe to assume we are all in the right place.

01. Tori Amos – Proffesional Widow (Armand’s Star Trunkin Mix)
02. Azzido Bass – Dooms Night (Timo Mass)
