Three Sundays later, and we have the return of our column. Apologies for the delay, but two things: one, my excuse is pretty good (yea, I blame Ultra), and two, this week’s edition is awesome. I called it the We-Missed-You edition for two reasons. One, duh, I missed y’all. Two, it features a few of my favorite songs by artists we all know and love — but haven’t heard them perform in their sets in years.

My first solo foray into the EDM world, I paid my buddy $10 and saw Avicii perform an intimate set at Pacha, and when he played this first song, I nearly cried of happiness, all hyped up, alone in my own Avicii-bubble. Years later, the feeling still returns. Then there’s Jacques Lu Cont, or the Thin White Duke, who somehow kept us in our seats, jumping with this Killers track in Madison Square Garden last year when the Swedish House Mafia — now dissolved — headlined the first electronic show there. Sit back, close your eyes, and know you’re in good hands… It’s time for #SyncBackSunday.

★ Armin Van Buuren feat. Laura V – Drowning (Avicii Mix)
♬ Marina & The Diamonds – I Am Not A Robot (Clock Opera
♬ Ellie Goulding – Guns and Horses (JAQUES Jezzy Remix)
★ The Killers – Mr. Brightside (Jacques Lu Cont’s Thin White
Duke Mix)
♬ Imogen Heap – Hide & Seek (Tiësto’s In Search Of Sunrise

Introducing the first edition of #SyncBackSunday, a new weekly post featuring some of the best ghosts of EDM’s past. (Oh, I do like a good pun.) Sometimes we need a reminder to stop and smell those roses…and for the life of me, I can’t understand why Throwback Thursday was devised, as all I want to hear on a Thursday or Friday night is something new, awakening, and exciting! So, I motion to save our throwbacks till Sunday, when, each Sunday eve, you can expect some tunes you won’t have heard throughout the week, may have never heard, and absolutely can’t not hear in your EDM-listening career. So sit back, relax, and enjoy a trip down EDMemory lane… it’s time for #SyncBackSunday.

This week’s premiere edition features a number of artists to be seen at the currently-ongoing Miami Music Week — but you’d be downright jackpot-lucky to hear these old beats on their systems…!

★ Morgan Page – The Longest Road (feat. Lissie) (Deadmau5
★ Tiesto, Sneaky Sound System – I Will Be Here (Wolfgang Gartner Dub Remix)
★ Kaskade – Fire In Your New Shoes (Sultan & Ned Shepard Electric Daisy Remix)
★ Alex Kenji & Starkillers ft. Nadia Ali – Pressure (Alesso
★ The Killers – Human (Armin Van Buuren Club Remix)

★ Gotye – Somebody That I Used To Know (Paolo Ortelli vs. Degree Remix)

I have loved this song from the second it first hit my ears. iTunes is showing me I have eleven remixes of “Somebody That I Used to Know” in addition to its beautiful original, by all sorts of top-shelf DJs, from dBerrie‘s most famous, house edit, to a kooky cut by dj Bibio, to a womptastic KDrew mix. But this version, a mash of remixing by Paolo Ortelli and Degree, is simply the best. Haunting and low at first, the remix focuses on the catchy, deep-cutting lyrics to build anticipation — until about the 2’45”-mark, when the emotion bursts free and glorious, cascading harmonies…

Original and runner-up remixes after the jump!

Day: ★ Hardwell & Dannic – Kontiki (Original Mix)
Night: ♬ Rene Kuppens & Dyro – Raid (Original Mix)

Hardwell‘s been on fire lately. In this sick new vid he let loose recently, he demonstrates how to positively own the stages of Ultra Music Festival and a Miami nightclub, and showcases two of the latest filthy nice releases by his label, Revealed Records: a pulsating collab with fellow Dutchman Danny Dannic and a mix by Revealed’s Dyro and Beatport’s Rene Kuppens. Finally, below’s an extra goodie… a remix of The Naked & Famous… with freakin’ Tiësto!?! God, I just can’t keep up!

★ The Naked & Famous – Young Blood (Tiësto & Hardwell Remix)

Been on a bit of a Kaskade bender ever since the drop of Fire & Ice, but honestly the singles that preceded the release were better than most of the rest on there.. So I’d just like to give a huge highfive to Le Castle Vania, a 26yo Georgia-boy who just dropped a really sweet remix of Turn It Down that, in spite of the title, requires you to turn it up. Just LISTEN to that solo at 2’17″…. EPIC!! Thanks @ BlahBlahBlahScience for the awesome share !

♬ Kaskade – Turn It Down (Le Castle Vania Remix)
Backup Get-Down: ♬ Cee-Lo Green – Fuck You (Le Castle Vania Remix)

Alex Gaudino… alex gaudino… Ah, yes.. the memories of those heehaw-ing echoes of “Destination Calabria” bouncing off the walls of every club ’round the world in 2007 are coming back to me… Well Gaudino’s dropped another anthemic remix, The Wanted’s “Glad You Came”. Dance away! As backup, JapWOW’s courteously updated our Destination with a bit of a new spin.

♬ The Wanted – Glad You Came (Alex Gaudino remix)
Backup Get-Down: ♬ Alex Gaudino – Destination Unknown (JapWOW Remix)

Happy dancing!
