The way the new, sleepy backbeats of trap music fuse with high-charged, intense songs as such a perfect-fitting backbone is…nothing short of remarkable. Songs played to death (I’m thinking Levels) are reinvented into epic lounge backdrop; you’re guaranteed to find yourself starting to nod along the second these beautiful, beautiful reworks pop on. Though I hate to do so, the first song I’m posting is a radio rip; can’t all be as lucky as miss Annie Mac over on the BBC… But also check out the Flux and La Roux to follow, and you’ll really get knocked off your feet…

★ Calvin Harris ft. Florence Welch – Sweet Nothing (Diplo & Grandtheft Trapstyle Remix)
♬ Flux Pavilion – I Can’t Stop (Sleepy Tom Remix)
★ La Roux – In For The Kill (DJ Slinks Get Trappy Remix)

Fave youngin’ Jacob Plant did a smashing job remixing Calvin‘s latest, premiered earlier this year at New York’s Electric Daisy Carnival. His version brings a bit more push to the song, adding some womppp to the otherwise mostly house/pop anthem.

♬ Calvin Harris (ft. Example) – We’ll Be Coming Back (Jacob Plant Remix)

And here’s the original, just for kicks…

★ Florence + The Machine – Spectrum (Say My Name) (Calvin Harris Remix)

As if we didn’t already love Flo as it was, mista Harris came along and turned it into a fist-pumping, sure-fire summer anthem! BOOM!

Update (5/27): Reader (and awesome music-picker in her own right) M$ was quick to put out Avicii’s inclusion of “Spectrum” in his recent EDC New York set as well. He also played it at this year’s Ultra, and Pier 94 for New Years… ’cause everybody loves it!

★ Avicii & David Guetta vs. Florence + The Machine – Sunshine Spectrum

★ Michael Brun & Special Features – Synergy

When 19-y.o. Haitian DJ Michael Brun teamed up with 21-y.o. brit Special Features (aka Eden Anderson), only a monster progressive house track like this could result. Perfect synths, rolling drum beat, smooth, arpeggio’d melody line… and a cool vid to boot! Here, have summore of these two, ’cause really, you won’t be able to get enough…

Big thanks to RawGoodage, who first tweeted this vid. With a little backup from Calvin, Dario Darnell of Picture Book drum-dubs over “Flashback” and takes it to the beyond. Bravo dude.

♬ Glee Cast – We Found Love (Calvin Harris ft. Rihanna)

Right on the curtails of an epic Calvin Harris concert at Pacha NYC this past weekend, I uncover this gem of a cover: TV’s Glee doing We Found Love, originally by Calvin Harris and Rihanna!

And this just in: Calvin’s gonna be at TOMORROWLAND! If you don’t know what that is yet, inform yourself for godsakes.

♬ DJ Earworm – United State of Pop 2011 (World Go Boom)

The three mashups in this post are INTENSE. They combine so many songs you lose count… But man, when Adele’s voice collides with Ingrosso’s beautiful electronics as in this first one below (2’42″), or Calvin Harris with Archie V in the second (1’31″)… it’s fire in the rain.

★ The Jane Doze – Kids, Set Fire to Someone That I Used to Know (Ingrosso, Adele, MGMT, Gotye…)
♬ DOSVEC – Five (Mylo, FreeSol ft. Justin Timberlake, Calvin Harris, Archie V…)

★ Calvin Harris ft. Rihanna – We Found Love (Star Slinger Refix)

I am all sorts of in love with this song. I’ve been a fan of Star Slinger for a while now, not entirely sure where I first heard him to be honest…but after last fall’s live show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, he’s cemented a place in my musical heart, getting stronger and stronger with each snappy snaredrum-flaring, rattle-infused new tune of his. And oh Calvin… can’t wait for you @ Pacha in just 10 DAYS!

Star Slinger can even make Drake bearable; here try summore..

♬ Body Language – You Can (Star Slinger Remix)
♬ Star Slinger – Kora In Here (A Work in Progress)
★ H-Town – They Like It Slow (Star Slinger Refix)
♬ Drake – Over My Dead Body (Star Slinger Remix)

And my all-time fave…

★ Star Slinger – Mornin’
