Does Sia ever put out a single that isn’t incredibly infectious? The obvious answer to that is no, and her sheer power of her deep vibrant voice is always a welcome treat, particularly when surrounded by dashing synths and resounding beats as it is on this ravishing remix by UK producer Kalm. Kendrick featured The Greatest gets an balmy future bass and effulgent melodic trap makeover well worthy of the song’s title on Kalm’s not so “calm” re-imagining. The banger of a remix is a free download, here.

The Golden Pony are at it again with their golden remix talent. This time around, the Brooklyn duo take on Sia’s Bird Set Free, and just in time for summer, too. Bird Set Free gets a topical breezy, future vibing makeover more than ready for your next epic pool party or forthcoming beach festivities. The Golden Pony’s remix will have your guests wondering if Diplo and Gryffin are spinning it up together at this fiesta, too. It’s a liberating, throw all caution into the wind sort of euphoric track, and it leaves me in great spirit.

I swear André Allen Anjos is the busiest man in the scene, or he must be, considering the sheer amount of originals and remixes he’s always dishing out in seemingly endless abundance. Not that I’m complaining, I can probably listen to RAC everyday, non-stop, for all of my life, considering how variable and versatile his music can be. RAC follows up on his remix of Peter Bjorn and John with a new remix of superstar Sia’s Cheap Thrills (featuring Sean Paul) that displays a stylistic 180 degree turn. This indie electronic remix is one of RAC’s more demure and downtempo transformations. Cheap Thrills takes on a pensively entrancing air on the fluidly roaming track, which comes from a seven track Cheap Thrills remix package out now on iTunes.

I feel more alive than ever tonight, thanks to a remix of Sia’s Alive by enigmatic new production act Wild Coyote. This debut track is a gorgeously soaring progressive house smash, its vibrant energy adding to the empowering affect of Sia Furler’s uplifting pop hit. Wild Coyote takes some cues from Avicii and Martin Garrix on his (her? their?) feel good remix, one that has me ready to rocket through the roof in euphoria. Wild Coyote’s first remix is a free download, here.

Sia’s everywhere lately, having finally attained the massive level of success she’s deserved for decades that span from her start as a member of Zero 7, through her brilliant solo work, on to her magnificent song crafting for other artists, and finally back to her powerful projects as herself today. I wonder how many of you remember her guest vocals on New York dark electronic duo CREEP’s Dim The Lights a few years back. For a bit of a refresher, Brooklyn’s Nick Catchdubs’ new remix of Dim The Lights takes us back into the enchantment of the song, but in a lighter, more delicate fashion. This is a future bass remix of weightless ethereal beauty, a labyrinth journey of sparkling fantasy.

East Coast production duo E.A.S.Y. are back at it again. This time around, Shiftee and Enferno have turned in a trap remix of Sia’s Big Girls Cry, complete with blaring horns and mad swagger. By now, y’all know I really love my trap music. True trap fans also know that there are always plentiful big trap edits of pretty much, well, everything, but most of them are utterly formulaic and though banging, completely predictable and shallow. E.A.S.Y. show us the other side of that equation with this Sia remix. It comes off like a cross between Lido’s bubbly effervescence, A-Trak’s percussive genius, and Keys N Krates’s heavy drops. Add in some euphoric, uplifting progressions and chilled out moments, and E.A.S.Y.’s Big Girls Cry quickly stands out as an ace makeoever.

If you didn’t hear over the weekend, legendary disco producer Giorgio Moroder has teamed up with infinitely talented pop superstar and composer Sia on a new ballad. Déjà Vu carries those funky guitar licks you’d expect from Giorgio, and likely recognize from Daft Punk’s last album, but they’re paired with Sia’s always robust and deep vocals. The glamorous and glittery powerhouse ballad is the title track from Giorgio Moroder’s comeback album, due out June 12th via RCA.

After the flood of Chandelier remixes died down, the remixes of Elastic Heart have been picking up, and considering my love of the tune, I’m not one to complain. A massive edit of the Sia hit comes by way of New York’s ALMOND, who teams back up with Canadian duo FYKA for the remix. If you want feel good vibes and blissed out feels, ALMOND and FYKA have you covered on this spirited progressive house remix. It comes off triumphant and majestic, in a somewhat Porter Robinson like way.

I must admit, I do really love the Sia remixes that have been floating out of the music machine as of late. What is it about Sia’s power ballads that make them perfect for all sorts of musical makeovers? The latest to make my heart pump faster with utter excitement is an official remix of Elastic Heart by fast rising, much adept UK electronic duo Kid Arkade. These two never fail at thrilling me with their high energy tracks full of pulsing synths, electro grandiosity, and progressive lifts. They certainly push the envelope when it comes to massive EDM ragers.

I gasped with delight when I saw this little treat floating around. It’s been some time now since I’ve shared some dang good Clams Casino on IHM, and today, I break that silence with the New Jersey producer’s deliciously haunting and nebulous remix of Sia’s hit song Elastic Heart. As if the original weren’t gut wrenching enough already, Clams Casino gives the track a beautifully somber and opaque makeover.
