Listen to 5 Must-Hear David Bowie Remixes
Love Is Lost (Hello Steve Reich Mix By James Murphy For The DFA)
LCD Soundsystem’s frontman gave this haunting Bowie song a breathtaking 10-minute refresh. Be forewarned that the music video that Bowie commissioned for it below is NSFW.
Fritz von Runte’s Bowie2001
The British artist reinvented Bowie’s back catalog as a space-age journey with analog synths and samples from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Listen to a sample mix of the compilation and his glitchy take on “Easy” below. The full release can be purchased at bowie2001.com.
Rebel Rebel (Soulwax Club Remix)
This extended edit of Bowie’s 1974 smash comes from Radio Soulwax’s far-reaching audio-visual Dave tribute, which can be viewed in full here.
Let’s Dance (InFiction Remix)
Featured in a 2014 Kia car commercial, this remix of Bowie’s 1983 hit builds from cinematic strings and lurking synth melodies to a chugging bass-driven climax.
Space Oddity (SUNDANCE Remix)
The French duo somehow manages to transmute Bowie’s ode to interstellar alienation into something surprisingly quirky and cheery.
