Top 5 Best Skrillex Remixes

So… I can’t stop talking about Skrillex. I like this dude a lot. Here’s another excuse to mention him on Spinning Sounds – a list of his five best remixes! He’s made quite a few original tracks, but his remixes are so insanely different from the original songs, they might as well be originals.

5. Bad Romance (Club Version) – Lady GaGa

Apparently there are multiple versions of this remix… I just found that out a second ago. But seeing as this is the one I fell in love with, I have to place it on the list. It adds a sinister edge to the whole song that the standard version lacks.

4. My Name is Skrillex – Skrillex

No one can remix a Skrillex better than Skrillex himself. The original song is… eh… but I love this one.

3. Alejandro – Lady GaGa

Two Lady GaGa remixes in one list? Yup. If you disagree, leave a comment below. Everyone else, listen to this awesome song. I seem to listen to this almost every day.

2. Rock That Body – Black Eyed Peas

Every synth and voice clip used in this song fits perfectly. I don’t normally have much nice to say about the Black Eyed Peas, but under Skrillex’s direction, they sound fantastic.

1. Cinema – Benny Benassi

It’s hard to imagine this song sounding any other way. I still have trouble listening to the original version, because it just sounds so… off. Skrillex can take any song and make it his own; make it something far greater than the initial mix. I can’t get enough of him!

Trackbacks

  1. […] I’ve gone on before about how much I love Skrillex, so it should be no surprise that I made my way down to Chicago this past Saturday to see him live. It’s the second time I’ve witnessed him now; I caught his Lollapalooza show earlier this year. Things have changed since then. Skrillex is now the poster child of the dubstep movement (although it’s open to debate how much of his music can actually be called “dubstep”), as people around the country young and old reference that famous “Oh my God!” sample as much as they reference top 40 pop songs. […]

  2. […] time before I started writing here, Josh posted a list of his top remixes by Skrillex. Now, I realize it was a while ago, so he can be forgiven for missing some of these, but I felt […]
