2018 Wrap-Up: Top 100 Remixes of 2018

It may seem like a fool’s errand to countdown the top remixes of the year. The potential number of remixes to listen to in a given year is nearly infinite and there is not a chance that I’ve listened to them all. However, it is fun cataloging the reworkings I listened to most annually and usually leads to me finding a slew of great productions I missed earlier in the year. Below is a rundown of the top 5 and a Spotify link to stream most of the top 100. Enjoy and Happy New Year!

1.Halsey-Alone feat. Stefflon Don (Calvin Harris Remix)

Considering Halsey’s Hopeless Fountain Kingdom album came out in mid-2017, I did not expect a major remix to drop in April 2018. Arguably the most popular dance music producer alive cranked the big room synth, sped up the tempo, and flipped Halsey’s hit into a dancefloor jam. Halsey’s airy vocals still hover around the top remix of 2018 (according to my ears), but the remix also got an added boost with a feature from London rapper Stefflon Don who serves as minister of energy on the buoyant track.

2.SG Lewis-Coming Up (Alex Virgo Remix)

SG Lewis seemed to be very “remix-able” throughout 2018 with his excellent cut “Aura” also making this list. Alex Virgo’s uptempo take on “Coming Up” rose to the top of my list though with its reworked spectral synth and drums. The chorus is easily relatable with the phrase “like when you started dancing like nobody was watching” that floats throughout the remix and likely your brain after one listen.

3.&4.Janelle Monae-Make Me Feel (EDX Dubai Skyline & DJ Strobe Ultimix)

Okay, I may have cheated here a bit. My love for Janelle Monae’s “Make Me Feel” has been well documented, but Dirty Computer also inspired a slew of quality remixes (see the list below which includes 4 total). EDX and DJ Strobe’s individual remixes of “Make Me Feel” were so head-nod inducing that my favorite of the 2 changed daily. Both remixes were frequently part of workout playlists of my own and my gym’s (Hat tip to The Fit Park) for good reason. Choose your own adventure with either remix and you won’t be disappointed.

5.The Knocks-Goodbyes (Dannic Remix)

The original version of “Goodbyes” already had energy to spare between The Knocks’ production and Method Man’s smile-inducing feature. Dannic kicked up the synth and firepower to about a 15 though on the remix. I don’t see this remix leaving my workout playlists until 2020.
