R Kelly – ‘Ignition’ Remix
If you went to a party at any moment past the year 2003, then you have heard this song. This remix is so great that you forget it is even a remix. A party classic.
ASAP Ferg – ‘Work’ Remix
ASAP Ferg turned a minor hit into one of the biggest party tracks of the 2010’s with this remix. With a better hook and some killer features this remix eclipses the original and was way more popular - a must have on any party playlist.
The XX - ‘You Got The Love’ (Florence And The Machine Remix)
