Honorable Mentions

It hurt our heart that we could not include these remixes on our list. However, we are giving credit where its due. Honorable mentions include Sultan + Shepard’s RnR (Lane 8 Remix), Kim Petras, Nicki Minaj’s Alone (James Hype Remix) and John Summit’s Where You Are (Griz Remix). Fair warning, you’re going to see Where You Are remixes all over this list. And lastly, let’s give props to Zyon’s No Fate (Adam Beyer Remix). Now, let’s move on to the tastiest tunes.

20. Swedish House Mafia – ‘Ray of Solar’ (Anfisa Letyago Remix)

This banger by Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso captivated everyone with ‘Ray of Solar’, it inspired two remixes on this list. The Russian-born Anfisa Letyago starts our list with this fast-paced and captivating Techno remix of the already amazing track. She utilized the hypnotizing vocals on her favor and added incredible stutter effects to boost the track’s power even more. Well done Anfisa!

19.Cubicolor – The Outsider (Colyn Palapas Remix)

Another trio with big impact this year was Cubicolor. The Dutch/Anglo group brought out ‘The Outsider’ as one of their top tracks of their newest album Sometime Not Now with Anjunadeep last year. However, This Colyn Palapas remix makes it even deeper and gives out a tropical vibes that blendes deep house and Melodic Afrohouse into an amazing remix. He managed to refresh the track into a new year and deliver it with more emotion. Your morale will be boosted by listening to this track.

18. WhoMadeWho, Adriatique – Miracle (Rüfüs Du Sol Remix)

A soulful track on itself, Adriatique and WhoMadeWho released a beautiful ‘Miracle’. Nevertheless, the Australian Grammy winner electronic-indie trio Rüfüs Du Sol gave this track an etherial twist. With reverberating melodies and soothing tones, the remix is a sensitive and beautiful trip.

17. Donna Lewis – I Love You Always Forever (Nora’s Version)

Now this is a classic! Nora En Pure brings back the oldie ‘I Love You Always Forever’ by Donna Lewis from 1996. The fun Pop song is now a beautiful spiritual soul searching track thanks to Nora’s Organic Beats and Deep mixing. Nora En Pure delivers another inspiring track yet again. Fun fact, Paris Hilton played this track on her Tomorrowland Belgium set this year.

16. Lana Del Rey – Say Yes To Heaven (Anyma Remix)

Another unexpected remix from Anyma is this year’s ‘Say Yes To Heaven’ by miss Lana Del Rey. Now that we think about it her soulful and blues-inspired vocals are perfect for great Melodic Techno. Anyma already took home the EDMTunes Top Spot for best album, naturally he deserves a spot with this remix.

15. Calvin Harris, Ellie Goulding – Miracle (Mau P)

EDM’s dynamic duo Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding crafted amazing Trancey song ‘Miracle’ earlier this year and it wowed the audiences as usual. Instantly, the ‘Drugs from Amsterdam’ originator Mau P added a fun house bit for the remix and made us like him even more.

14. Purple Disco Machine, Duke Dumont Ft Nothing But Thieves – Something on my mind (Solumun Remix)

The groove is never ending on the Purple Disco Machine and Duke Dumont Ft. Nothin But Thieves Track ‘Something on my mind’. However, the melodic king himself Solumun was able to shift the genre of the song into an an amazing melodic techno song. The remix is now a mystical experience from beginning to end.

13. Portugal, The Man – Dummy (Chris Lake Remix)

A rather somber song, ‘Dummy’ is Portugal, The Man’s creation. The Alt-Rock song carries a lot of sentiment due to the album itself Chris Black Changed My Life. British DJ Chris Lake revitalized this jam to make a hype anthem that still delivers the essence of the song flawlessly. The groove is extremely catchy and the bounciness makes you feel light on your feet in a really nice way.

12. Yotto & SØNIN ft. AunA – Let You Go (Joris Voorn Remix)

A rather psychedelic embrace, Yotto & SØNIN came together to build ‘Let You go’ ft. AunA. The hypnotizing vocals and the quicker pace of the song are a Progressive wonder. The Dutch DJ Joris Voorn was inspired enough to handle the track in a different way, and brought this remix into life. The hipnosis is recurrent, but the echoing effects and the deeper contracts of the track define it from its original.

11. Armin Van Buuren ft. Sharon den Adel – In and out of Love (Innellea Remix)

One of Trance’s biggest names, Armin Van Buuren impacted the industry with ‘In and Out of Love’ ft. Sharon den Adel in 2008. 15 years later, the Germany-based Innellea producer reimagined the song into an abstract landscape. The remix is a powerful Melodic Techno vision of what it was before, and it is now a dream of assertive percussion and melodies.

Let’s give it up for our top 10 remixes, it was extremely difficult to choose, but we made it happen, We hope you enjoyed this remixes as much as we did.

10. John Summit – In Chicago (Danny Avila Remix)

Now, who doesn’t recognize this track from last year? John Summit came in full throttle to represent his city with ‘In Chicago’, alluding to its amazing nightlife and bender-activities. The twist comes from Spanish DJ Danny Avila, that turned the song into a filthy Peak Time Techno. The bass got way more intense and the kicks are nasty, just how we like them. It’s the kinda remix that melts your face right away.

9.Jimi Jules – My City’s On Fire (Anyma & Cassian Remix)

Another Anyma remix that made it into our list. Jimi Jules’ ‘My City’s On fire’ is a piece with vocals out of an 80’s movie soundtrack. Anyma and Cassian created a monster of a remix, adding their darker flavors to the track. Furthermore, the song still has an 80s element to it and it feels great.

8. Charlotte de Witte – High Street (Astrix Remix)

A high octane original meets a high octane remix. Charlotte de Witte debuted the Overdrive EP earlier this year, which included ‘High Street’. A great Techno track with impactful hip hop infuence. Techno meets Psytrance as Israeli DJ Astrix flipped the song completely to add fluidity and a magical atmosphere. The remix transports you to a mystical adventure that ends with a fantastic drop and added vocals.

7. Oceanlab – Satellite (Above and Beyond 2023 Progressive Mix)

The early 2000s was an amazing era for Trance, ‘Satellite’ by Oceanlab is the statement for it. What’s more impressive is how Above and Beyond decided to alter it almost 20 years later and invoke so many fresh emotions into this Progressive remix. Gratitude boys!

6. Le Youth – I Will Leave a Light on (Sultan + Shepard Remix)

Fighting melodic with melodic is a great battle. Le Youth’s ‘I Will Leave a Light On’ is nothing short of beautiful and simplistic. Canadian Duo Sultan + Shepard managed to overpower the melodies and add their own ethereal flare to this amazing track. The remix is uplifting and soothing.

5. Green Velvet – Voicemail (Layton Giordani Remix)

Green Velvet is one of the most influencial figures in the House and Techno Scene. 2014’s ‘Voicemail’ with Patrick topping was a funky track that had everyone dancing. Layton Giordani’s remix keeps the groove intact while he boosts the bass, adds spooky melodies and revitalizes the track for a newer audience. This track has been a stage smasher for every Green Velvet set for the past few years and it thoroughly deserves the Top 5 spot on our list.

4. Swedish House Mafia – Ray of Solar (Mau P Remix)

We couldn’t get enough of this jam! so we needed it on our list twice. This time, Mau P molds ‘Ray of Solar’ into a fantastic progressive techno track. The vocals remain as significant as ever, and the beat plays with the string arrangements into a delightful combination.

3. David Guetta vs. Benny Benassi – Satisfaction (Hardwell & Maddix Remix)

Classics always come back, and ‘Satisfaction’ by Benny Benassi is not the exception. Given that the David Guetta mix was fantastic, this Hardwell & Maddix remix blew up speakers all over the world. Everytime this track was played at a festival this year, the crowd’s energie multiplied by ten. The Acid Kick is the protagonist in this remix

2. Kaskade & Deadmau5 – I Remember (John Summit Remix)

The original ‘I Remember’ is always going to be quintessential Kaskade and Deadmau5. It is truly amazing how John summit managed to capture its essence into his own. His personality truly reflects how amazing his producing skills are. We will always remember how this track made us feel the first time.

1. John Summit ft. Hayla Where You Are (Gorgon City Remix)

Don’t act surprised, this song earned Top Original Track in our most recent list! This may be the first year that the same track hit #1 on both lists! However, we couldn’t leave this amazing remix by Gorgon City. The English Duo really put it into overdrive while remixing the already insane song. The drop is an explosion of percussion and stutters that light up the sky moreso than any lasers could. Congrats to John Summit Gorgon City for another successful track.

[EVENT REVIEW] Ultra Chile Returns After Nearly A Decade, And In Full Force Too

UltraChile2024 0419 215350 9834 ALIVECOVERAGE 1024x683 1

The large ‘U’ festival celebrated a fantastic return to South America recently.

When you think of Ultra Music Festival, you likely gravitate towards Miami straight away. But we’re lucky enough to have them all over the world, celebrating parties far and wide. That is certainly a blessing for energetic crowds living in somewhat further places in the globe, like South America.

I’ve been here for a while, and it’s safe to say it’s growing a strong community of Dance-devoted madmen like me. I’ve been lucky enough to get to know the Argentinian scene fairly well, and also those in its neighbouring country, Chile. This is a country where Hardstyle reigns supreme, and genres like Techno and its branches are seeing a roaring uptrend in the number of fans and followers. So much so, that Ultra themselves decided to pay a visit. A two-day visit, mind you.

UltraChile2024 0419 215350 9834 ALIVECOVERAGE 1024x683 2

Ultra Chile: Its History

Chile had its first Ultra in 2013, with the next two years also calling artists from around the world to come together on the far southern end of the globe for Ultra Chile 2014 and 2015. The year after, Chile received a more compact Road To Ultra, as well as in 2017, for the Ultra host of those years was the continental giant, Brazil. After that, Chile would have to wait some time before the brand set foot on it again.

2023 saw Road To Ultra return to the long country for a Halloween party, headlined by Marshmello, Nicky Romero, Oliver Heldens, and Two Friends. And this year, the acclaimed main branch returned in full force, with two days of unstoppable beats coming from a handful of places, and showcasing an impressive plethora of talents, established, up-and-coming, returning… everything.

It was held on Friday, April 19th, and Saturday, April 20th, in Santiago’s iconic go-to place for massive events, Espacio Riesco.

Day One: Friday

Day One kicked off late in the afternoon, at 7 PM to be precise. The crowds started to appear from very early on. Once inside, it was time to have a look at the place, and, oh dear, they truly made the most out of the venue. Three of the four stages were on that day, the Mainstage, on the back of the property and boasting an impressive open-air setting, the Resistance stage, a blacked-out, massive former plane hangar to welcome the best Techno represents in the world, and the Carolina stage, a local-lineup filled stage out on the open.

Day One Winners

Jumping between the Mainstage and the Resistance stage allowed me to watch basically all artists for a little. That’s life at a festival, you can’t really marry one particular DJ. That said, I think I’ve got my favourite artist of the night, and it is Stephan Bodzin.

I had never watched him play, so I was basically going in not knowing what to expect. Add to that, I was at the Main seeing Armin before, so I didn’t really know what I was about to witness. Walking into Resistance, the first thing I noticed was that there was A TON of space to dance and just be yourself. The Mainstage was filled to the brim with people, and well, that left the Techno-devoted stage with a crowd that was truly enjoying Bodzin’s magic. I did too.

I swear, ten minutes in I was already fully hooked. Eyes closed, moving side to side, that kind of hooked. Him playing a live set was a tenfold amplifier as well, since he was interacting a lot with the audience, and the audience interacted a lot with him back. Ask me to name one track from his set, I can’t. But what I CAN recall vividly is how happy he was managing his instruments, and how happy the people dancing beside him were. I was one of them, fully gone away in a trance. A star for you, mate.

Day Two: Saturday

Day Two started quite earlier, promising twelve endless hours of good music. My friend — who flew in from Buenos Aires for the festival — and I entered the place just past 2:30 PM. And after a little day tour of the venue, we headed straight to the brand-new Resistance Square stage. Reason being, Daniella Da Silva was on at 3:00.

The stage itself was really interesting to me, since the Ultra guys turned this giant conference place into the host for the darkest, most energetic beats of the entire day. I remember my highschool once took me for University speeches or something of that kind literal years ago, and seeing it changed to fit a literal Ultra festival blew me away.

The other stages were just as breathtaking as the day before, and now places like the Mainstage enjoyed the geographic surroundings of Espacio Riesco: mountains for days. It was another level. Point for you, day parties!

UltraChile2024 0420 182258 4031 ALIVECOVERAGE 1024x683 1

Day Two Winners

Daniella Da Silva

My friend wanted to see her so badly, and I wanted to learn from someone new to me. Good. Lord. Those were 90 minutes of nonstop dancing. There are pictures and videos of me absolutely losing it during her set which I won’t show for, reasons, but let me tell you, her energy is sensational. Dark, Hard Techno. I’m not of the kind to enjoy that in a car ride or on a normal day, but I for sure allowed myself to enjoy her beats at Ultra. I felt slightly sore after that, and that should tell you enough of how good of a set hers was.

Hardwell

My childhood hero. How wouldn’t I have enjoyed Hardwell’s set when he was my role model when I was in school back in the day? Growing up loving ‘Encoded’, ‘Spaceman’, and his remix of ‘Man With The Red Face’, it was about time to see him again. Absolutely nuts. Lots of what he played I had heard before at his Ultra Miami set from earlier this year, but far from taking away from the experience, it allowed me to sing my lungs out. Special shoutout to that ‘Strobe‘ x ‘Save The World‘ mashup which nearly got me crying.

Kasablanca

These guys take the gold for me, no question. Seeing Hardwell, you know beforehand that it’s going to be a phenomenal show, but I had never seen Kasablanca before. I’d only heard their Anjuna tunes. And so my friend and I got to the very front of the Mainstage to see them. We could not have decided better.

They played a live set, just like Bodzin had done the day before. The difference here was the setting: While Stephan Bodzin played inside the warehouse vibe of the Resistance stage, Kasablanca did it out in the open. And their set just so happened to occur during the last hours of the day and into the night, sunset included.

UltraChile2024 0420 184438 4728 ALIVECOVERAGE 1024x683 1

They absolutely rocked it. From synths to vocals to literal choreography, their set had it all. They truly made good use of the Mainstage speakers as well, with their fat-bottomed tracks. I can’t tell you just how magical that time was, even the landscape fit the vibe of their music. Mountains all around, the clouds turning slightly red at sunset (see a few pictures above), and the moon reigning high aloft by the time they dropped their remix of Above & Beyond’s ‘Black Room Boy’. The duo take the gold, and my heart with it. I won’t turn down the possibility of seeing them in the future.

Final Thoughts

It had been a while since I last attended a big festival, since I’d been much more inclined to go to artist-focused events. It was a refreshing treat to come to Ultra Chile and soak in the festival experience again. My mate and I had a great time, enjoyed the food (shoutout to Papa John’s), the Gin Tonics, and the feel-good atmosphere. For now, be right back, I’ll be listening to Kasablanca!

Adriatique’s ‘Beyond Us’ (Hatshepsut Version Alex Wann Remix) Is a Mystical Voyage

363830700 1153035575634312 964742524720897087 n 683x1024 1

As time goes by, some songs become timeless classics. Even more when artists reimagine different emotions and moods. This is the case with Eynka‘s ‘Beyond Us‘. It wasn’t long until Swiss Electronic duo Adriatique made their own renditions of the track. They amped it up a notch when they immortalized their rendition at the Hatshepsut Temple in Egypt last year for Cercle. Finally, we’re delighted to get an even more magical version of the track, brought to you by Deep House Parisian Icon Alex Wann.

‘Beyond Us’ (Hatshepsut Version Alex Wann Remix)

How do you remaster and refresh a track that has so much influence and power, you may ask? Well, it seems like Alex Wann found the right formula for his ‘Beyond Us’ remix. From Eynka’s melodic touch, to Adriatique’s deeper and darker undertones, Wann manages to deliver an ethereal track with powerful afro elements. The percussion calls out to your ancestors, and the groove represents the vast deserts phenomenally. After a successful run with his Kelis’ ‘Milkshake’ Remix, the producer continues to influence the world around him.

363830700 1153035575634312 964742524720897087 n 683x1024 2

A star in the rise, Alex has received the support from House legends Keinemusik, Pete Tong, Swedish House Mafia, Diplo, and Blond:ish. This remix furtherly proves his ability to produce with different elements and styles, such as Adriatique’s unique sounds. Earlier this year he embarked in a North American tour, visiting major musical capitals such as Miami, New York, Toronto, San Francisco, and Montreal. Next Up, Alex Wann will make his rounds around Ibiza, Milan, Dubai, and La Bourget.

Watch out for Alex Wann this summer! He will most likely reign supreme with this delicious version of ‘Beyond Us’.
