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.

We’re in the midst of winter, with the holidays fast approaching. But I can’t help but wish I had a heated pool back at home, so I could blast this remix and party all night long, through midnight till the sun comes up. Australian electronic duo Midnight Pool Party have given Lorde’s Dynamite a juicy lush, snazzy grooving edit, and it’s the perfect soundtrack for such a soiree. The electro-funky, disco pumping remix is a welcome new look for Lorde’s dark pop. All we need with our pool and this steamy jam are some flashing neon lights. Midnight Pool Party says: “2017 has been an amazing year for us, and what better way to finish it off than with some funky summer vibes for everyone to enjoy. Thank you for your support this year and keep an eye out for more from us in 2018!” Download this awesome way to wrap up the year for free, here.

Sweden’s Tove Styrke is shaping up to be a budding star in the making herself after having released a variety of sterling pop songs in the past, including breakout hit Say My Name, but she takes a moment to give us her ode to New Zealand’s Lorde via a demo cover of her Melodrama hit, Liability. She gives the song an understated electro pop makeover, driven by her honeyed vocals. Its skittering percussion and rotund synths prance with lissome grace as Liability takes on a subtle but mesmerizing future pop aura. Liability arrives ahead of Tove Styrke’s expansive 2018 tour with Lorde, which you can find out more about and purhcase tickets for, here. Her Liability cover is available from iTunes, here.

It’s been four months since a new production talent named Josef swooped out of Sydney to surprise us with a stellar remix of Mura Masa and Charli XCX’s 1 Night, but we still don’t know much about him. He’s taken his time to release his next track, a remix of Lorde, who’s songs off Melodrama have been prime fodder for re-working, these days. He’s given Homemade Dynamite a turned down edit with evocative keys, wavy synths, and a thick droning, glossy purring vibe. It certainly gives Homemade Dynamite a different feel, one more profound and meditative, dark and nostalgic. Download the track for free, here.

The sheer amount of Lorde remixes was astounding after the release of Melodrama, and there seems to be no sign of a slow down, either. It makes sense, considering how much more energetic and dance ready the songs are off of Lorde’s sophomore album. Australian duo ODD MOB recently offered up a sumptuous remix of Lorde’s Perfect Places, too. While so many of the Lorde edits we’ve heard lately subscribe to the ever pervasive trap and bass trend of late, ODD MOB has chosen spice up Lorde with a face melting house remix. A steely future edge and plenteous tech house jabs give their exhilarating edit an edgy fresh veneer that helps to drives us towards blissful delirium. We truly find ourselves in a perfect place…

It’s not everyday that unreleased Lorde surfaces, much less a collaboration with Yoni Wolf of alt hip hop and indie rock band WHY?, so Sway is a very pleasant surprise. The two linked up on Tumblr before hitting up the studio together. Sway carries the dark fidgeting bewitchment of Lorde’s earlier offerings and some of the mellifluous richness of Melodrama. How it never ended up as an official release on any album eludes me. We gladly sway in the light of the “disco ball” with Lorde.

I know this one’s been thrilling ears for well over a week, but in case you missed this “dynamite” new version of one of Lorde’s many fine tunes off Melodrama, we’re going to hop into her star studded remix of Homemade Dynamite. And by star studded, I mean immensely talented cameos all around! Texan R&B sensation Khalid, ever popular trend setter Post Malone, and seductive chanteuse SZA join Lorde on this energetic marching future bass rendition of the song. It’s no wonder it’s um, “blowing” up.

I just can’t get enough of these official remixes of Lorde’s Perfect Places that have been springing up lately! The White Panda gave us a bright thrumming, electro swelling indie dance and melodic house edit a week ago. Whethan’s remix of the track was nothing short of brilliant, a frothy brisk future trap take on the hit Melodrama track. And now, Australian duo Peking Duk takes my breath away with their ravishing remix, a sanguine lifting, saccharine rich tropical trap approach on the tune. The high flying edit is Peking Duk’s first remix in four years!

Yes, I know this is the second remix of Lorde’s Perfect Places that I’ve shared tonight, but there’s simply no way to ignore the perfection of Whethan’s take on the hit single, too. The Chicago wunderkind and electronic prodigy, arguably the hottest commodity right now in the dance music scene, gives us a brilliant revamp of the tune brimming with his signature frothy, airy, and brisk future trap. Playful pops, whimsical bubbles, and a whole lot of weightless bounce permeate the seesawing extravaganza. If you’ve never caught Ethan Snoreck live, make sure you do when he heads out on his expansive fall tour. Get ready to be mind blown. Find out more about the tour, here.

Chicago mashup and remix experts The White Panda hones in on Lorde’s Perfect Places, one of so many great songs from recent album Melodrama, for their latest euphoric remix. Perfect Places gets a bright thrumming, electro swelling indie dance meets melodic house edit that takes us to a place more than perfect. Lorde has already gone a more luminous route with her latest album compared to her debut album. The White Panda emphasizes and boosts Perfect Places’ luminosity with their soaring, towering remix.
