I remember last year I kept hearing a remix on the radio of Gotye’s song “Somebody I Used to Know,” and I was obsessed with it. After extensive googling, I found that it was DJ Mike D who was behind the amazing remake. Since then, I’ve heard his remakes of Demi Lovato’s “Give Your Heart a Break” and Hozier’s “Take Me to Church” on the radio.
I decided to check out DJ Mike D’s soundcloud, and my God, I think I found heaven. This person is so talented in keeping the original integrity of the song, but enhancing them or making them more interesting to listen to. In fact, I think his remake of “All of Me” by John Legend is better than the dance remix that they play on the radio:
And I don’t know why Jennifer Lawrence says she can’t sing (actually, she says she’s a tone-deaf Amy Winehouse who has bronchitis), because I think her voice is great in “The Hanging Tree.” Listen to DJ Mike D’s remix, it’s phenomenal:
