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!
