As you may know, Ludacris teamed up with fellow music legends, Usher and David Guetta, to create this made-for-radio hit. Its theme is quite standard to the norm: YOLO type attitude, and it’s beat is very Afrojack-esque… eerily similar to Can’t Stop Me Now… but it most certainly will be heard around the globe and be played in every night club. However, with every hyped-up song comes remixes, and that we like! Here are some big-room sounds courtesy of Nicky Romero and Hard Rock Sofa. These are unofficial releases for now…

The hip-hop influenced electronica masterminds from Canada, Zeds Dead, release a majestic remix of Marina & The Diamonds’ hit song Lies. This remix has a very calm vibe and exemplifies that less is more is sometimes the way to go.
Timeflies, a hip-hop/pop duo based out of Brooklyn, has some of the best freestyle remixes I have heard. They’re not strictly focused on making freestyle remixes — as they have their fair share of original works — but when they revert back to their old ways, shit hits the fan. This cover of Ke$ha’s top-charter, Die Young, will convert you into a fan, if you’re not one already.
At Dawn We Rage released a sexy, trap remix of Kendrick Lamar’s Swimming Pools. This is a prime example of why I love trap music. Not all of it is crap.
Here’s a nicely executed set by a new, aspiring DJ. It has clean transitions and features tons of hits!
Always a risk to remix a classic, German producers Black Van step up to the challenge with their blissful remix of the Isley Brothers. Good, soulful vibes throughout. Have a wonderfully chill holidays everyone!
This Dillon Francis remix of Like Home is amazing, and it just came out today on Beatport. Just in time for the holidays!
What’s that? Another rager by the Dutch duo? Not surprised. These 20-year old producers have been releasing massive tracks one after another… it’s hard to keep up. Their most recent remix is of Zedd’s Clarity, a fascinating illustration of Vicetone’s unique style. I’m hoping to hear more from these guys as we head into the new year. They deserve the recognition and support.
