Fishpork’s 10 Favorite Remixes of 2012

It’s not uncommon for a remix to completely butcher the original inspiration or sound of a great song. Unfortunately, it happens more often than not, and many hacks are using the art of the remix as a method to get noticed. However, every once in a while a remix comes along that adds a unique interpretation of a track without bastardizing its spirit. This past year has given us a few remixes that are worth our attention. If you haven’t picked up the maxi-single of Black Moth Super Rainbow’s “Windshield Smasher,” it’s worth the $5 from iTunes. Not a big fan of Deadmau5, but his infatuation with Trent Reznor this year has produced two of the best remixes we’ve heard in a while. Here is our list of favorite remixes from 2012:

1. Black Moth Super Rainbow – “Windshield Smasher (JUNK CULTURE Remix)”

 

2. How To Destroy Angels – “Ice Age (Deadmau5 Remix)”

 

3. Keaton Henson – “Do You Know How Lucky You Are (Tired Arms Remix)”

 

4. Tame Impala – “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards (Memory Tapes Remix)”

 

5. Black Mother Super Rainbow – “Windshield Smasher (ODD NOSDAM Remix)”

 

6. The Knife – “You Make Me Like Charity (Cry Wolf Remix)”
