The inordinate amount of Ed Sheeran remixes this year may have tired some people out. As luck would have it, when Alison Wonderland reached out to remix Shape Of You, she didn’t hear back from Ed, so she ended up linking up with Sydney producer Naderi for a cover re-make instead. A total re-creation of Shape Of U, after all the endless edits that arose, is a refreshing treat. The thrilling cover, which first premiered on This Song Is Sick, offers up some shiver inducing future bass and shudders prompting dubstep.

It’s not every day that we encounter a remix of this song, but–wait a minute. Hold on. My mistake. Ed Sheeran’s Shape Of You is only the most remixed song of the year so far! But before you duck away from being inundated by the overabundance of Shape Of You remixes, take note, this one comes by way of Los Angeles’ Elephante. That’s right, the versatile electronic artist has given Shape Of You his own work over, and if we’ve learned anything from our past experiences with Elephante, we know that he never gives us anything humdrum or mundane. Shape Of You goes electro whirring and showy vivacious on this voluminous transformation. This is a vigorous thriller, a freshly minted approach on Shape Of You.

In the past several weeks, we’ve listened to countless remixes of Ed Sheeran’s Shape Of You, but we haven’t heard many remixes of the other song the beloved artist dropped alongside that smash hit. Swedish producer Nevada offers up one of the first ace edits to reach our ears in the form of his endearing chill house rendition of Castle On The Hill. Nevada, whom we all recall from his massive debut single The Mack, featuring Fetty Wap & Mark Morrison, melts our hearts with this dulcet soothing official remix, taking full advantage of Ed Sheeran’s heartfelt vocals and the ardent folk aura of the song.

I know we’ve had an inordinate amount of remixes when it comes to Ed Sheeran’s Shape Of You lately, but this one is completely fresh and unique. In fact, this pair of singer songwriters and producers have cleverly compounded Shape Of You with Chet Faker’s No Diggity. Lu Crative and Sowlmate present us with a flawless cover mashup on which it’s nearly impossible to discern where Ed Sheeran ends and when Chet Faker begins. This island breezy chill house emulsion is as dashing as can be. And it’s a free download, here.

Ed Sheeran’s recent single Shape Of You is beyond a doubt the most remixed tune of the month. From the very first Monday after its new music Friday release, we’ve been deluged with Shape Of You remixes, some of them mediocre, some of them stand out enthrallers. Mysterious production project it’s different makes a welcome return to IHM with a chime glimmering Shape Of You. Dancehall beats, blaring brass effects, and island vibes abound on this summer breezy tropical trap take on the beloved tune.

We’re at that point in the week where we’ve almost made it to Friday, but we’re not quite there just yet. For that extra gas we need to make it to the weekend, it’s time to hop on to one of the countless remixes of Ed Sheeran that have been floating around all week. Except, this one’s a must. It’s a can’t miss pick me up that rides high on Ed Sheeran’s dulcet Shape Of You. Sweden’s NOTD (pronounced “noted”) gives the hit single an electrifying dance makeover that takes sweet swooning Ed into future bass and chill trap territory. Sawing synths and intrepid beats suffuse us with potent energy. It’s no wonder NOTD’s remix is the most popular one to have come out of the week’s dense forest of Ed Sheeran re-works. The remix is a free download too, here.

Ed Sheeran managed to send the world into an excited tizzy last weekend when he unceremoniously dropped two new tunes, one an uptempo earworm named Shape Of You, the other a folksier melter named Castle On The Hill. By now, you’ve probably checked both of them out, maybe even listened to it endless times. Heck, you might have shed a tear or two if you’re one of those devout fans who’d probably faint if you were to meet Ed Sheeran someday. On Monday morning, I woke up to a limitless cornucopia of Shape Of You remixes, a handful of which I’m looking forward to sharing. To avoid deluging you with too many of them at one time, let’s focus our attention on a deep melodic house version of the song crafted by UK producer James Carter and German producer Levi. The two have linked up to give us a summer breezy, island jocund Shape Of You that takes us to beach island paradise. You can download their remix for free, here.

Kap Slap may be busy on tour through the end of May (tour info, here), but the producer from Southern California has taken the time to craft a mighty fine, very sophisticated mashup. Taylor Needs Calvin’s Rozes & Love is what you might call tongue in cheek, considering its playful reference to Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris’ romance. All jesting aside, Kap Slap has put together one blissed out future beats cocktail made up of Calvin Harris’ I Need Your Love, Ed Sheeran’s Thinking Out Loud, Manila Killa’s All That’s Left, The Chainsmokers’  Roses, and Taylor Swift’s Wildest Dreams, among possibly more snippets of top hits. Many of happen to be on my favorites list, so I’m quite happy with hearing them all mashed together into one ebulliently springy treat.  Download Taylor Needs Calvin’s Rozes & Love for free, here.

I could always use some palm trees and sunshine, especially now, when we’re launching head first into the thick of winter. We turn to Swedish producer Cali to provide us plenty of vitamin D and tropical luster on a remix of Rudimental’s Ed Sheeran featuring Lay It All On Me. You’ll be clapping along to the heart warming house remix in no time, ready to march out the doors on a mission to hug every stranger you pass. Free download, here.

When UK drum and bass act Rudimental unleashed a collaboration with Ed Sheeran earlier this year, Lay It All On Me probably made a ton of teenaged girls faint in glee. Now, we get to return to charming Ed’s vocals and Rudimental’s grooving tune, thanks to a rousing, uplifting progressive remix by Canada’s Sultan + Shepard. As always, the duo know how to build up eager anticipation and make our hearts burst with the most satisfying, feel good drops. The original is on Rudimental’s sophomore album We The Generation.
