best-of-2013-remixes

As to be expected, a year such as 2013 which has included a ton of amazing new production has yielded a handful of awesome remixes. The twenty or so tracks below were all chosen because we felt the remix had truly elevated the song to the next level. The art of the remix requires a good ear and a level of creativity that improves on the original piece and can grab the listeners attention even though they may already be familiar with the orginal. Another great thing about remixes is that no artist really seems to outgrow the practice, this list is filled with young guns as well as some of our timeless favorites such as Alesso, Tommy Trash, and Cedric Gervais.

The goal of any remix is to breathe new life into a track that may have fallen out of the spotlight such as the Brillz and Z-trip take on the legendary Jay-z song Dirt Off  Your Shoulders or Vinnie Maniscalco’s remix of The Champ’s original Tequila. The tracks below are in no specific order but this is the perfect playlist for any pre-game or party as just about anyone should be able to find a song here they can relate too. Be sure to support all the artists below with a follow on Soundcloud and we cannot wait to see what refixes, re-takes, and remixes that 2014 will bring us!
