Throwback Thursday Vol. 4: 5 Favorite Lana Del Rey EDM Remixes
Lana Del Rey has built herself into more than just your normal pop-singing sensation. With her alternative style and edgy personality, the singer has developed quite the name for herself. The dance community has become especially fond of Del Rey's voice. Take a second and think about how many producers have remixed a Del Rey track.
Ever since the first remix of "Summertime Sadness" came out, venues that never considered playing electronic music began playing the famous Cedric Gervais version. Truth be told, anything Del Rey's vocals touch turns to pure fire.
This week, EDM.com wanted to highlight the beauty and grace of Del Rey by throwing it back to some of the more memorable remixes featuring her vocals. Look out for your favorite as we count down our five favorite Lana Del Rey EDM remixes.
5) Video Games (Solarstone Subterranean Remix)
Solarstone, the much-lauded Pure Trance producer, adds beautiful and warming synths to Lana’s “Video Games.” The track was her debut single and shines from start to finish with chilling vocals and piano chords. Once Solarstone got his hands on it, the remix became a hit among the trance community. Relax with some trance-infused Lana.
4) Ride (Active Child Remix)
The Los Angeles-raised producer Active Child adds some indie vibes to Lana’s “Ride.” This track is one that should only be remixed in a way that maintains the smooth rhythms of the original, and Active Child has done just that!
3) National Anthem (Cashmere Cat Remix)
“Money is the reason, we exist…” The unforgettable line from one of Lana's hits, “National Anthem.” If any electronic producer had the right to remix one of Lana’s greatest hits, it would indeed be Cashmere Cat. The uplifting summer vibes radiate in this remix. Enjoy!
2) Blue Jeans (RAC Remix)
RAC turned "Blue Jeans" into a funky, danceable track in this memorable remix. Try your hardest not to sing along to this one.
1) Young & Beautiful (Kaskade Remix)
