Best of 2013: Top 13 Remixes

2013 has been a interesting year of songs that has been remixed.
Here is my Top 13 that I considered my favorite. I know there are tracks that came out last year but official got the official remix treatment.
  1. Lana Del Rey – Summertime Sadness (Cedric Gervais Remix)
  2. Love it or not.
    This is the remix that changed everything.
    Officially came out last year but this year it became a big hit everywhere.
    Due to the change from the dreary sad original version to a upbeat scorching dancefloor beat.

  3. Disclosure – You & Me feat. Eliza Doolittle (Baauer Remix)
  4. Big year for Disclosure.
    This remix made it so fun and crazy thanks to Baauer.
  5. Young Galaxy – Pretty Boy (Peaking Lights Remix)
  6. A standout track from Ultramarine.
    With this remix they just make it into an extended version.
  7. Sigur Rós – Rafstraumur (Cyril Hahn Remix)
  8. A change from the original but still maintains that dreamy airy sound to Sigur Ros.
    I know the current album drifts away from their typical post-rock sound.
    Still a fun song to dance to.
  9. Stars – Hold On When You Get Love And Let Go When You Give It (Sem Thomasson Remix Edit)
  10. One of my favorite tracks from 2012’s The North.
    This year they finally released this single plus music video and had some remixes.
    This one standouts the most!
  11. Suuns – 2020 (joeFaar Remix)
  12. Dark, gritty and haunting remix of 2020 by Suuns.
  13. Diana – Perpetual Surrender (Four Tet Remix)
  14. Brilliant remix by Four Tet.
    Making this slow-jam of a track more dance-like
  15. Jon Hopkins – Breathe This Air (feat. Purity Ring)
  16. This one is more a rework than a remix.
    But I had to put it on the list.
  17. Austra – Painful Like (XXXY Remix)
  18. Like the original version on Olympia.
    This remix makes it more fun
  19. Purity Ring – Anemany (Jon Hopkins Remix)
  20. Cool remix by Jon Hopkins.
    Who in return the duo provided vocals on his track Breathe This Air.
  21. Jordan Klassen – Go To Me (Teen Daze Remix)
  22. Teen Daze made this remix so enjoyable!
  23. Dirty Projectors – The Socialites (AlunaGeorge Remix)
  24. Who knew The Dirty Projectors was a big fan of AlunaGeorge.
    Taken from 2012’s Swing Lo Magellan.
    Love this remix because it has that AlunaGeorge techno R&B sound.
    It is a good change for The Dirty Projectors.
  25. Lady Gaga – Applause (Purity Ring Remix)
  26. While Applause didn’t make waves for a typical Lady Gaga song.
    But Purity Ring remix this song and added some dynamic and their own sound.


  • Hud Mo – Pleasure
  • Sampling from a Janet Jackson’s Pleasure Principle.
    Made this song alot better than the original.
  • Fevers – Dance Cry Dance (Dialoog Remix)
    Dialoog remixed this great Fevers track into a dub-steppy feel.

  • Roberta Bondar – Doing It (Réservoir Remix)
  • Resevoir remixed this unique Roberta Bondar track into a weird experimental.

Listen to the remixes featured in this Top 13.
