5. Andy Bell – Say What You Want (Joy Joy Mix)
This remix was actually a contest winner of Andy Bell’s remix contest. This track also landed on Andy Bell’s single release, Non Stop.
Ste, the creator of this remix, hit this one out of the park. It is spot on, and in my opinion surpasses the original album version.
4. Fear Of Tigers – I Can Make The Pain Disappear (Monsieur Adi Remix)
Wonderful mix of electronic textures and orchestral elements. Monsieur Adi seems to have a knack for this kind of juxtaposition.
3. Weezer — Love is the Answer (Odd Year Remix)
This was my winning entry in Weezer’s remix contest, which took 1st place. The grand prize was to work with Rivers Rivers Cuomo to create a new song! Not sure when that will happen since the Weezer bunch have been quite busy touring in support of their latest effort. BTW: If you like Vampire Weekend and love electronic pop, then give this track a spin.
2. I Blame Coco — Caesar Ft. Robyn (Miike Snow Remix)
Miike Snow does it again, they make me sick with envy, but in a good way. They produced one hell of a remix on this track. So original and grooving, how can anyone not fall in love with this track. Once again, the remix stands above the original, which is why I consider it one of the best remixes for 2010.
1. Empire Of The Sun — Walking On A Dream (RAC Mix)
This wasn’t even close, such a great song married with a great yet simple backing track courtesy of RAC. Once I heard this, I knew this would be my number one remix for 2010. RAC produces one hell of a drum beat, I mean c’mon, that kick on this track is sick. The synths add to the over all effect and never distract from the vocals, another good mark. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you RAC for producing a remix I will cherish for years to come.
