Remixing the Night Away

I'll be honest with you guys, it takes a LOT for me to consider a remix when I'm already a fan of the original. This goes to show, that as an avid Ellie Goulding fan... I've only considered a small handful of remixes of her material. The first one that cracked my complicated style was Blackmill's Dubstep remix of EG's stellar cover of "Your Song" originally performed by the one & only Elton John.
True life: I still melt every time I hear this song. Since then I've totally opened up to remixes, it just takes a good solid listen or seven to figure out what it is that I love about it in comparison to the original. Sometimes it's amazing, and sometimes it's just god awful. Here are a few current remixes that I've stumbled across by luck, and hey - they're pretty good regardless of the mood you're in.
Enjoy! xx 

First off, this is a free download, so definitely grab it while you have the opportunity to! I love this stripped down version of the track from Young Wonder's recently released EP titled Show Your Bones Check out the video for the original track here! As I've admitted on previous posts, I've fallen in love with Feel Good Lost & what they've done in terms of directing videos for Young Wonder! 
P.S. Still obsessed with this video for "Time" that's also featured on Show Your Teeth.

I consider myself blessed to work in an environment that plays music that I can appreciate just like this remix by Ryan Hemsworth featuring Angel Haze of Cat Power's "Manhattan." 
being one of the several tracks that are featured in our daily mixes each week. "Manhattan" is my favorite track off CP's latest studio release Sun, and honestly it took me a few listens...but hey, you can now colored me ecstatic because I love this remix.  

Another free download that I am currently in love with. I love that Tycho can take a song and still include a little something-something that makes you automatically think "wow that kind of sounds like Tycho." It's 100% instrumental, and I'm 100% in love with it.
Truth be told, I  first heard this Jacob Plant remix of Iggy Azalea's "Work" before I actually heard the original several months ago. I can't imagine ending this post on a better note then with this gem of a remix. Hopefully this will be one of the tracks that will hit you the same it did for me.  I can't help but start every "getting ready" process without this remix, it's just that good.
