BEST OF 2011 - REMIKS (PT. 2)

More remix goodies from last year (continued from part 1)... a big favorite comes from Belgian producer duo Fusty Delights and their amazing rework of the Crystal Fighters track At Home.

Compatriots Lindstrøm and Prins Thomas made perhaps the most fun remix of 2011 with their reworked version of Locussolus' I Want It.

RAC has made plenty of remixes, including reworked versions of tunes by artists such as Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Two Door Cinema Club and Holy Ghost. Favorite Rac track is the remix of Natalie Walker's Cool Kids.

Another favorite is the Crazy P remix of Don't Stop by Only Children.

The Paris-based electro pop duo Jupiter released Sake on Kitsune in March of last year. The track was given a mighty makeover by Anoraak.

Italian nu disco producer Gregorio Assandri aka Cloned in Vatican reworked The Units track Passions of Patterns.

KDMS is a duo consisting of British electro pop singer Kathy Diamond and Polish producer Max Skima. Their song Tonight was given a retouch by Morgan Geist. (Click here for a pretty cool video featuring female gladiators behind bars.)

The mysterious duo Tiger & Woods (aka Larry Tiger and David Woods) produced one of last year's most acclaimed nu disco albums. They also took the time to make some remixes - here a reworked version of the Tensnake track Need Your Lovin.

Classixx aka the LA-based producer duo Michael David & Tyler Blake were responsible for the outstanding remix of Psychic City by Yacht, released in 2010. Last Year's fave Classixx remix is the duo's version of the Cosmic Kids track Reginald's Groove.

Yacht returned last year with the album Shangri-La, which includes the track I Walked Alone. Here's the Jacques Renault remix.

A final fave remix (listed here, though there are several others that could be included) comes from Glasgow-based DJ and producer Graeme Clark aka The Revenge and his version of the Mitzi track Morning Light.
