Remix Roundup: Listen to 6 Must-Hear Remixes of Adele's 'Hello' Right Now
Dance artists scramble to lend their touch to Adele's tearjerking chart-topper.
Adele's "Hello" is currently unstoppable.
The lead single off her third album 25 -- which this week surpassed the single-week album sales record (since Nielsen began tracking sales in 1991) previously held by *NSYNC’s No Strings Attached -- debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 two weeks ago and doesn't look to be leaving anytime soon.
Considering the absurd number of remixes that Adele's 21 garnered at the dawn of America's EDM boom in 2011, it's no surprise that producers are already off to the races to create the signature "Hello" remix (as Thomas Gold arguably did with "Set Fire to Rain").
While it's still too early to tell who will be enshrined in glorious ubiquity or relegated to the ranks of the swiftly forgotten, here's a Remix Roundup of the six best tries that Billboard Dance has heard so far:
Adele - Hello (DJDS Acid Mix)
It's not easy to make an acid track that doesn't sound dated these days, but the artist formerly known as DJ Dodger Stadium delivers here.
Adele - Hello (TRXD//Leroy Sanchez Remix)
The Norwegian producer gives Leroy Sanchez's cover the tropical treatment with warm chords and a well-executed drop driven by his pitch-shifted vocals.
Adele - HeLLo (marshmello remix)
Fresh off his first live appearances at NYC's Pier of Fear and HARD Day of the Dead, the mystery artist transmutes Adele's radio hit into top future bass form.
Adele - H3llo (Anevo Remix)
Sweden's Anevo wisely chose to keep the song downtempo and dreamy while adding soothing melodic sections to excellent effect.
Adele - Hello (Kryder DnB Remix)
It's only fitting that a British producer would give the Tottenham native a proper drum n' bass rework.
Adele - Hello (MORTEN Remix)
The Danish L.A. transplant's take builds to a throbbing and distorted bass drop that could see significant festival play.
