First is his remix of Flo Rida’s late 2010 release Who Dat Girl. He takes this top 40 club hit, holds its head back, and pours a heavy cup of electro house down its throat, leaving us with a bit of a house anthem, as well as an electro banger. You’ll see that this remix manages to stay true to the original melodies and synths, while still giving it an entire EDM makeover. I can’t wait to not only hear this one played, but play it out myself any chance I get.
Also released this year is Hardwell’s remix of Catch Your Fall by Clokx. Ditching the dominating electro riffs, Hardwell falls back to more traditional house roots with severe tech influences, giving us an angelic, piano-driven orchestra of house music bliss. If his remix of Who Dat Girl is one to get a party started, this is the track to close the night out. Hopefully Hardwell can keep this pace up throughout 2011, ending it as strongly as he started.
