As Friday approaches, I get lazier and lazier and thus all you get a compilation post (sry, but also, less annoying commentary u have to read FTW). The week has been jam packed with artists releasing UNDENIABLY catchy covers and remixes and we have compiled the best so you don't have to sort through all the SHITTY remixes out there (to put it in perspective, for every good remix we post on here, there are approximately 1.5 million other remixes of the same song and they ALL suck). Remixing a song is a tough art to perfect, but these 5 absolutely killed it this week. 

Alesso- Heroes (Branchez Remix)- I feel like Branchez is the type of people who were just born with the ear to remix. I bet he came out of the womb behind a DJing table with leeeetle baby beats by dr. dre on his head. His remix of "High You Are" will break your replay button and although "Heroes" ain't as good as that (nothing could be), it's still an improvement on the original, which is just commercial AF.
Sounds Like: Alesso, Major Lazer, Diplo


Baby Bash- Suga Suga (Jerry Folk Remix)- rly 'nuff said with the title. A Jerry Folks remix of a gr00vy classic? Count me in!
Sounds Like: Baby Bash (le duh), Goldrooom, RAC, Viceroy


Miguel- Simple Things (Monogem Cover)- Not as good as the original, but then again, the original was flawless (does Beyonce have a patent on that word? Can I only use that to describe her? Don't care). Props to Monogem to turning the R&B slowjam into a this little electronic ditty.
Sounds Like: Miguel, The Weeknd, Lykki Li


Gnarles Barkley- Crazy (TEEMID & Joie Tan Remix)- Maybe the best one on here, although they're all really too different to compare. TEEMID's production value is always high and Joie Tan (sister to my favorite overweight cat, Joshua Tan, i think) has some smooth vocals the round out this crowd-favorite of a track.
Sounds Like: Daft Punk, Flight Facilities, AlunaGeorge, Tobtek 


Misterwives- Reflections (Gryffin Remix)- Misterwives is currently up and coming into the indie world and Gryffin is currently up and coming in the DJ world so this combo was just bound to happen at some point. Told yah I was too lazy to provide adequate commentary 2day lol. 
Sounds Like: Misterwives, Kimbra, Jerry Folk
