From Tiësto, Illenium, Slushii and more.

Marshmello's summer single "Silence" featuring Khalid dropped only two months ago, but already become is biggest hit yet. Debuting at No. 42 on the Hot 100 chart and clearing 150 million streams on Spotify, the dance-pop record is well on it's way to reaching even greater heights following the release of its remix package.

Among the selected remixers is Tiësto who brings the track to the club and festival space with his big room spin. Next up is a heartfelt rework from Illenium who has achieved massive success of his own in 2017 with the release of his Awake album in September.

Slushii is another notable name on the pack who brings some extra sweetness to the song with his punchy synths and buoyant bassline. Prior to the package's official release, however, there were a couple of strong remakes that Billboard Dance felt deserved the spotlight.

See below the best "Silence" remixes, both official and unofficial, below.

Marshmello feat. Khalid - "Silence" (Tiësto's Big Room Remix)

The track title pretty much says it all. Tiësto delivers a booming big room "Silence" remix for the mega clubs and festivals. Simple, yet satisfying.

Marshmello feat. Khalid - "Silence" (Illenium Remix)

Illenium's "Silence" remix kicks in with acoustic strumming that immediately tugs at your heartstrings. He incorporates thumping drum kicks and an uplifting melody that beautifully encompasses his signature sound.

Marshmello feat. Khalid - "Silence" (Slushii Remix)

Slushii blends dark ominous pads with Khalid's soulful R&B vocals and an urban drum beat. The drop takes off like a rocket launch with sprightly synths and a gritty bassline. 

Marshmello feat. Khalid - "Silence" (SUMR CAMP Remix)

This remix marks SUMR CAMP's debut release and it's absolutely groovy. The anonymous act slows down the original's tempo and funks it up with an addictive vocal melody and house percussion. 

Marshmello feat. Khalid - "Silence" (Blonde Remix)

Blonde's "Silence" remix was crafted for that underground warehouse party at 3:00 a.m. that's way too far from your apartment. The English house duo will seduct you with hypnotic grooves, wobbling deep house rhythms and a dash of cow bell.

Marshmello feat. Khalid - "Silence" (Rude Kid Remix)

Rude Kids keeps is simple and dark on his "Silence" remix. The rework is led by a fat brass melody that immediately commands your attention. Listen up!

Marshmello feat. Khalid - "Silence" (Lost Kings Remix)

It's been about two years since Lost Kings have dropped a remix and they ended up delivering one of the biggest dance songs of 2017. Simliar to their original material, Lost Kings take listeners for a ride with their pop-driven rhythms and delightful melodies.

Marshmello feat. Khalid - "Silence" (Facade & Varun Remix)

Facade & Varun amplify "Silence" with a bright future bass rework that's laced with electric guitar. The remix didn't make the official remix package, but is certainly worth taking a listen to. 

Marshmello ft. Khalid - "Silence" (Codeko Remix)

Codeko's "Silence" remix is chock full of energy with its stadium-sized synths that shine in the drop. Lots of love from this bootleg by the U.K. producer.
