Best techno & house remixes of old dance songs

16. Florence & The Machine – Spectrum (Maya Jane Coles Remix)

What a starter of the list. It’s so full of emotion and Maya Janes Coles created an amazing remix of the track with some very garage-like hats and drums. Great techno or tech-house remix.

15. Digitalism – Destination Breakdown (Gerd Janson Remix)

Very disco-style remix from the track Destination Breakdown by Digitalism, very clear, warm and nice remix by Gerd Janson.

14. Close feat. Charlene Soraia & Scuba – Beam Me Up (George FitzGerald Remix)

Very electro and techno-ish remix. Nice vocals as well.

13. Sasha – Xpander (Malbetrieb Raw Essential Tool)

An end 90s track has been put into a techno sauce by Malbetrieb. Best thing, the track is free available for download.

12. Guy J – Candyland (Luca Bacchetti Endless Remix)

Looking for a long, relaxing, chilling remix for in your mix or party? This is your track. The original is more than 11 minutes long and has an amazing buildup, making it a great deep-house remix.

11. Niels van Gogh – Pulverturm (Solomun & Tomcraft Remix)

Pulverturm is an amazing 00s dance track of Niels van Gogh, although, it’s too fast to play on techno festivals. That’s why Bosnian Techno Hero Solumun slowed the track down and made an amazing remix of it.

10. Marco V – Simulated (Bas Amro Remix)

Another early 00s track that did great, is simulated from Dutch Marco V. Bas Amro had the courage to put a punchy kick and a sharp hihat under it and a secret sauce that makes it a huge one.

9. Röyksopp – I had this thing (Joris Voorn Remix)

Röyksopp launched their album The Inevitable End and Joris Voorn had the honour to remix this one.

8. Cocolores – Heart Quest (Deetron Remix)

House track, full of groove and an interesting chord-line.

7. Caribou – Sun (Oliver Schories Remix)

This older remix has a great break of the older number Sun. It’s very relaxing, yet melodic.

6. Todd Terje – Snooze 4 Love (Dixon Remix)

Maybe one of our favourite techno-tracks by German hero Dixon. Such a sweet and warm sound. His remixes are of overwhelming good quality. So good, that Dixon is in the list twice (sorry, spoiler alert ;-)).

5. Ry, Frank Wiedemann – Howling (Ame Remix)

Best pop techno & house remixes

Making remixes of pop songs is always next level, that’s why those rank the highest.

4. Bo Saris – She’s On Fire (Maya Jane Coles Remix)

Dutch Bo Saris is famous in the Netherlands for winning Idols, but currently he makes a way more alternative and soul-style kind of music. His track She’s on Fire got remixed by Maya Jane Coles and she did an amazing job.

3. Bomfunk MC’s – Freestyler (Like Yellow Floating Above Ground Remix)

 

2. Remake – Blade Runner (Maceo Plex Renaissance Remix)

Maybe a bit less pop, but more house-ish. And although the remix is not received very well by all platforms, we like it a lot. Because of it’s great bassline, the tension it creates and the melodic break.

1. Depeche Mode – Cover Me (Dixon Remix)

The top remix, best one in our opinion. What Dixon did with the original is perfect. The bass line, the string, the vocals, they belong to each other and Dixon brought them in harmony like no one else could.
