13Gabriel & Dresden – You (Myon x Elevven Remix)
Are you ready for another banging track? Gabriel & Dresden’s epic track ‘You’ was excellently remixed by Hungarian star Myon together with Elevven and we absolutely love it. The remixed song resonates well with those of you who looking for some serious uplifting (cue Armin).
12Alison Wonderland – Good Enough (Valentino Khan Remix)
Whats a ‘best of’ list without the touch of Alison Wonderland or Valentino Khan? In at number 13 is an epic summer remix of Alison Wonderland’s ‘Good Enough’ from Valentino Khan. These two are without a doubt mainstays of the Dubstep scene. Its no surprise that they find themselves on this list.
11Jon Hopkins – Singularity (ANNA Remix)
Anyone up for a melodic but simultaneously banging track? An ever-rising star of Techno checks in next. ANNA’s remix of Jon Hopkins’ track Singularity is going to be one playing over and over in your head if you’re a big Techno fan. It seems like Adam Beyer is a fan too, given he played this as his second to last track at his recent Drumcode Halloween set in London.
10Above & Beyond Feat. Zoë Johnston – Always (Luttrell Remix)
Its time for us to get into the groovy vibes next with Luttrell’s remix of Always by Above & Beyond featuring Zoë Johnston on the vocals. Luttrell is pegged as Anjuandeep’s guy for spaced out melodic house and techno and he delivers yet again with this tune. The remix was fine tuned while traveling on Above & Beyond’s North American leg of the Common Ground tour and it certainly won our hearts.
9Armin van Buuren Feat. James Newman – Therapy (Leo Reyes Remix)
Leo Reyes checks in at number 9 with a remix of Armin van Buuren’s ‘Therapy’. What turned out to be one of the hottest tunes of 2018, Armin van Buuren’s Therapy was also remixed by the likes of STANDERWICK and Super8 & Tab. This electric version rightfully takes its place in our top 10.
8Energy 52 – Cafe Del Mar (Tale Of Us Remix)
Another classic track getting the remix treatment, this time its Tale of Us delivering the magic. The Italian duo have been one of Techno’s hottest names in the last few years, and deservedly so. The Afterlife label owners have put a unique twist on EDM and this tune is a testament of what they’ve become. More of the same in 2019 please!
7ODESZA Feat. Sasha Sloan- Falls (Kaskade Remix)
Kaskade put his winning touch on an epic track from ODESZA with Sasha Sloan on the vocals. The remix of ‘Falls’ has the same structural tempo, but the synths, chords, and overall sound are darker and heavier. Sasha Sloan’s beautiful vocals remain untouched and rightfully so.
6Gryffin (with Elley Duhé) – Tie Me Down (Spencer Brown’s Ibiza Mix)
Did anyone have a better year than Spencer Brown in 2018? These past 12 months gave way to the meteoric rise of the Anjuna superstar. This past summer he remixed ‘Tie Me Down’ originally from Gryffin with Elley Duhé. The remix has a vintage Spencer Brown progressive beat which captured our imagination in 2018.
5Lane 8 – No Captain Feat. POLIÇA (Dirty South Remix)
Another Anjuna superstar is up next. Checking in at number 5 is Dirty South’s remix of ‘No Captain’ with POLIÇA. Dirty South certainly treated his fans in 2018, and that’s an understatement. He released not one, but two absolutely epic albums. This track truly showcases the man’s epic free flowing style.
4Above & Beyond – Is It Love? (Gabriel & Dresden Remix)
2018’s remixes were dominated by the Anjuna crew, so there’s no surprise to see their touch in the top five. Gabriel & Dresden gave A&B’s ‘Is It Love’ the remix treatment early in the summer and, needless to say, it certainly is love with this track.
3CamelPhat & Elderbrook – Cola (Broning Bootleg)
Another absolutely massive track released in 2017 resulted in a huge remix in 2018. Progressive Trance rising star put an epic tweak on CamelPhat & Elderbrook’s track ‘Cola’ and boy did it pay off. You may recognize this track if you heard some of Armin van Buuren’s sets from the last year, he gave it love at Tomorrowland, Ultra Miami, and Untold Festival to name a few.
2Gabriel & Dresden feat. Sub Teal – Only Road (Cosmic Gate Remix)
Taking second place in this years Top Remixes is Cosmic Gate’s remix of ‘Only Road’ From Gabriel & Dresden with Sub Teal. The title track of Gabriel & Dresden’s second studio album is a classic melancholic track. 2018 saw the Trance heavyweights Cosmic Gate put their iconic Trance skills to epic effect with this remix.
1Porter Robinson – Divinity (REZZ Remix)
And here it is, our top remix of 2018. REZZ takes the top prize with a colossal remix of Porter Robinson’s ‘Divinity’, a haunting, isolating track with the characteristics that signify REZZ tracks. Fresh off the release of her second album, ‘Certain Kind of Magic on mau5trap, Rezz strikes yet again with the best remix of 2018.
