There are plenty of rad remixes of Lorde songs off her last album Melodrama floating about, but have you heard this recent remix of Green Light by PINES? As much as all the tracks off Melodrama were brilliant, Green Light is without a doubt my favorite. The Australian duo gives the track an atmospheric blustering, coruscant sparkling future bass re-fix that totally bucks the feel of the original. The green glow of this beautifully diaphanous re-imagination, an orchestral lush transformation, reveals a scintillating new side to Green Light. You can listen to PINES on Spotify, here.

A steady current of Green Light remixes has been surfacing this month, many of which have been thrilling experiences and vigorous treats. The latest can’t miss edit comes by way of New Zealand projects Montell2099 and SACHI, who’ve gone a dark cinematic trap route with their take on the Lorde hit. The explosive yet effervescent flip features sharp jabbing chords and murky haunting chops. Montell2099 and SACHI’s remix is one of the most creative we’ve encountered to date. Other than Lorde’s original vocals, this Green Light is newly built from the ground up. “I’m waiting for it, that green light, I want it” feels even more emphatic when paired with this tense atmospheric soundscape.

I know we’ve already shared some magnificent remixes of Lorde’s triumphant hit single Green Light these past weeks, but never would I have guessed the next can’t miss edit would come by way of electro funk wizards Chromeo! Get ready to bust out your best disco dance moves as we launch into this French house intoned, airy brisk transformation. Chromeo’s “green light” is a neon green, and it reflects brilliantly off of a revolving mirror ball hanging high above our heads. Not only am I now reminded how much I miss Chromeo’s swaggering grooves, but my excitement for Lorde’s new album Melodrama burns even more intense. Melodrama arrives soon on June 16th.

In the past weeks, we’ve shared a handful of fabulous Green Light remixes, including most recently, a purely euphoric and immensely brilliant remix by Moving Castle’s Hotel Garuda. Party Pupils offers up our latest favorite edit of Lorde’s exultant hit single, and we can’t stop listening to and dancing to their sleek future funk remix. The decadence and the glitzy glam luxuriance of their frisky surging, glitchy stuttering re-work is a fine fit to the triumphant and glorious essence that emanates from Green Light. Party Pupil’s excellent remix is a free download, here.

Candle Weather and Manila Killa, our favorite Moving Castle match up who’s now more than well known across the world as beloved duo Hotel Garuda, are huge fans of New Zealand’s pop princess Lorde, just like us. They’ve even been selected to for a high caliber remix of Lorde’s massive new hit Green Light, one of our favorite pop spectaculars this year. Hotel Garuda infuses Green Light with crisp rubbery beats and plump dreamy synths to afford us a fresh new dance approach on the triumphant ballad. If you thought you couldn’t resist dancing to the original, wait till you’re leaping sky high and swimming in euphoria to this brisk throbbing, airy jouncing rush of elation.

Lorde’s Green Light is high up on my list of favorite singles this year. Aside from being wildly infectious, the song is more than capable of totally whisking us off our feet. Green Light picks us up and tosses us in the a uncontrollably triumphant riptide. We let go with Lorde, we go for it, and we never want to stop. It’s as cathartic a journey as Lorde has ever given us (with the assist of Jack Antonoff), and a delicious contrast to her dark pop offerings of yore. One would think such a song would lend itself well to clever remixing, but we’ve yet to encounter a prime tuning of Green Light, until now. German DJ and production duo VITIZE offer up a club ready dance remix that highlights the vitality of Lorde’s original. What truly stands out about their progressive house remix is how much they’ve changed things up despite staying true to the essence of the original. There are people out there who confuse remixes with “improving on the original” (same people tend to make the same mistake with covers) when a good remix is really a new adventure based on the original, with different smells and tastes to be enjoyed. VITIZE’s Green Light opens the floodgates to ecstasy with its stratospheric synths and powerfully lurching beats. It’s a stadium or arena sized dance anthem that sees the duo rebuilding the track from ground up. Download VITIZE’s remix, here

All week long, the world has been on their tippy toes trying to guess what would come next from Lorde. The now superstar from New Zealand teased us for days with new music, and today, she finally unleashed Green Light on us. Dark pop princess no more, Lorde gives us an upbeat and exultant anthem for our first taste from her sophomore album to come. Green Light, which arrives via a captivating video, sports vivacious keys and a triumphant beat. It’s certainly a new side of Lorde we’re seeing here, and it’s nothing short of magnificent. Lorde’s dexterity and creativity are on full display with this new turn of sound. I can’t wait to hear how the rest of sophomore album Melodrama sounds. We’ll be waiting for that release date. Download or stream Green Light at additional outlets and sources, here.
