Higher Love : Alessandro Taccini Feat. Pierre Soyer

Steve Winwood's original "Higher Love" that was released in 1986 got a re-work by the up and coming DJ, Alessandro Taccini, in 2014.

Sylvan Esso : Hey Mami (Big Wild Remix)

Sylvan Esso's "Hey Mami" is a great song. A lyrical masterpiece. The original track is  harmonized via a simple musical round, which is my favorite aspect of "Hey Mami".

Alt-J : Left Hand Free (Lido Remix)

Here we go, post number 1. Alec discovered this song a few days ago. He sent it to me and I was instantly impressed. Remixes tend to ruin the original beat and underlying feel.
