2. The Reloaded Mix of “Romance” is even more sultry than the original, with dark violin melodies assisting the deep house bassline in making a soothing-yet-intense auditory experience.

4. The Yin and Yang pairing of Chilly Gonzales achieves near-perfection through the entirety of their eponymous debut album, Octave Minds. “Anthem” pairs Gonzales’ complex, understated piano riffing with Boys Noize extra-dimensional production to culminate in an ethereal, orchestral warble.
5. Bizarre Baltimorean Dan Deacon’s remix of Death Cab For Cutie’s “Black Sun” follows a fast-paced tempo, but it’s ambiental composition transports us to a calm cosmos.
