Everything old is new again. Grown-ass people are playing Pokémon Go and listening to new songs from Blink-182. People are so jazzed on the pop-punk band’s reunion, listeners bumped Drake from the top spot of the Billboard chart. They may be coming at us sans Tom DeLonge, but fans don’t seem to mind. This country’s got a 182 fever, and the only thing that’ll cure it is more Blink.
Rock bands can’t churn out music as fast as dance music producers, but producers can upload Blink stems to their laptops and make studio magic. If you find yourself suffering from a Blink 182 song deficiency, we suggest pressing play on these remixes. Hey, it’s something.
Kasum – Adam’s Song
Punks rarely showed their softer side in 1999, but Blink-182 dared to be sensitive. “Adam’s Song” might have single-handedly invented the emo genre. Kasum’s remix cracks the blinds and lets a little sunshine into the melancholic childhood bedroom in your heart.
Two Friends – I Miss You
Chainsmokers dropped this jam at Ultra Music Festival, and it had the crowd going absolutely ape. It’s your turn now.
Ryan Hemsworth – Feelin’ This (Hemsworth Sees Aliens Too Version)
DeLonge left Blink-182 to go catch UFOs, or something like that. Ryan Hemsworth is feelin’ that, so he went in on the 2003 hit. It’s a dope cut from the producers remix collection Ryanpack Vol. 2.
Steve Aoki – Bored to Death
Before Dim Mak signed cutting edge dance artists, it was a label well respected for its indie rock cuts. Aoki proves he can still walk the genre line on his rework of Blink’s latest megahit. This isn’t even officially out yet. Enjoy.
Franck Fresck – Everytime I Look For You
Sometimes remixes are better left simple and straightforward. This bright and bouncy rework from take Off Your Pants and Jacket is a perfect example. It’s the indie dance remix we always wanted.
Sharkoffs – All The Small Things
Who knew Blink had the formula for perfect festival house? Listening to this is like drinking sunshine from a bottle.
Wildabeast – Feeling This
Another go at a super jam, but this one takes a glitchier, more uppity approach. Smiles may fade in the summer, but you can listen to this remix on repeat forever.
