Remixes

6 excellent remixes and 6 times remixes have slapped rthe spirits of their respective originals
1The Good
2Massive Attack
Paradise Circus (Gui Boratto remix)

take the best trip hop tracks of 2010 and turn it into awesome house? check it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_p_MvePxC4w
3Paradise Circus (Zeds Dead remix)

take the best trip hop tracks of 2010 and turn it into awesome dubstep? check it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8C-ZTQJIkU
4Portishead
Wandering Star (Nosaj Thing remix)

Nosaj Thing is a master remixer. Here's one he likes spinning live http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAnfPMaLPec
5Royksopp
What Else Is There (Trentem?ller Remix)

Been addicted to this as of late. So good: http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=u3njX4nSO5U
6Trentemoller
Moan (Trentemoller Remix Radio Edit)

Trentemoller saw other remixes of his awesome song moan get play and musta decided he could remix his own song better than any of them. he was right http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2pvFXIkg6WM
7The XX
Islands (Nosaj Thing remix)

He also does an awesome Reckoner (Radiohead) and Camel (Flying Lotus) amongst others. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ziJFbRiPUvg
8The Bad,
The Ugly
9Daft Punk
Derezzed (Avicii remix)
10Derezzed (Glitch Mob remix)

It's not that either of these are that bad, but they just make me pine after the original without really adding anything worthwhile http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svpLw7e-4ds
11Faithless
Insomnia (Tiesto remix)

The essence of the fascinatingly dark and harrowing original is lost on the simplistic house version Tiesto gives us. Listen to the abriged: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tBrUjvONIrA or full: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuqEbRzy_t8 versions of the original instead of a silly remix
12Massive Attack
Light My Fire

Technically a cover and not a remix, but this is the worst thing that Massive Attack have ever put their name on by far and is a shame to this classic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flOvM4Z355A
13Radiohead
Pyramid Song (Zeds Dead remix)

Does not remotely understand the essence of the original and ruins it's message with nonsense and garbage. Just listen to the old one again http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2VzLn6DMCE
14Reckoner (Flying Lotus remix)

Not awful but pretty bad - I expected Flylo to be able to do so much more with this classic since he did rework Idioteque pretty nicely. Also Nosaj Thing's Reckoner is pretty good so here's that one instead: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NKOQNN3eYUk
