News surrounding Mac Miller's tragic sudden death shook the dance world. The rapper was found dead Friday (Sept. 7) of an apparent overdose in his San Fernando Valley home.
Despite his success in the hip-hop genre, Miller had a number of his songs remixed into dance gems. Billboard Dance gathered the five best remixes of his songs to memorialize the beloved rapper. See them below.
Mac Miller - "Jump" (Jayceeoh & ClockworkDJ Remix)
Featured on his 2015 album GO:OD AM, the original version of "Jump" already sounds like a dance floor jam, with traces of R&B and U.K. garage hovering over Miller's filtered vocals. Jayceeoh and ClockworkDJ rework the track into a trap remix that's more on the soulful side than the heavy end.
Ariana Grande ft. Mac Miller - "The Way" (Sidney Samson Remix)
The pop world was sent into a frenzy when Miller and Ariana Grande broke up after dating for two years. Before they were an item, the two former lovebirds recorded, "The Way," for Grande's 2013 debut studio album, Yours Truly. The original became the first top ten hit on the Hot 100 chart for both Miller and Grande. Dutch house producer Sidney Samson reworked the R&B-pop jam into a festival-ready electro house monster.
Cobra Starship ft. Mac Miller - "Middle Finger" (Bingo Players Remix)
Miller is all bad boy attitude on this dance-pop earworm from alternative rockers Cobra Starship. Dutch electro house producer Bingo Players adds a touch of big room action while keep all the pop lean that made the original so damn catchy.
Chase & Status - "Flashing Lights" (Mac Miller Remix)
No stranger to the art of the remix himself, Miller added a fire verse to this bass-fuelled heater from U.K. drum and bass duo Chase & Status. Miller somehow finds a way to make this dank bass bomb even heavier.
Mac Miller - "Loud" (Optix Dubstep Remix)
The original version of "Loud," featured on Miller's 2012 mixtape Macadelic, already knocked the subs, but this dubstep remix from Chicago newcomer Optix is fittingly louder.
