"And I miss you, like the deserts miss the rain..." Anyone born before 1995 is probably already singing the rest. Everything But the Girl's classic 1990 dance anthem is one that sticks in your head for generations. It's a big task to take that timeless topline and turn it out into something shiny and new, but it's a task met with gusto by Dutch trance star Mark Sixma and one matched with even bigger show by his buddy Andrew Rayel for the reinvention remix.

Rayel's take on "Missing" is a monster smasher. It's super sized with confetti canons at every corner, a track for peak hour in the biggest, glowing room this side of Vegas. Sixma hired singer Emma Hewitt to bring the familiar vocal to new heights and her round, powerful performance fits nicely into the flashing frenzy of the remix.

It's got a touch of hardstyle to its modern edge. You've never heard "Missing" like this before.
