Florence + The Machine are gearing up to release their fourth studio album this summer and recently released “Hunger,” along with “Sky Full of Song,” to drum up some momentum.
The band’s last LP, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, came forth in 2015 performed magnificently, peaking at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
With a new album on the horizon, Billboard Dance decided to sift through the best remixes of Florence + The Machine’s works for your listening pleasure.
What Kind of Man (Nicolas Jaar Remix)
Nicolas Jaar’s foot-stomping take on “What Kind of Man” is sure to get you in the mood for a dancefloor prowl. It’s ominous layers paired with airy percussion create a dreamy feel before flipping switches to a menacing, club-ready bassline for grooving only.
Delilah (Galantis Remix)
Galantis lead with an extended, cinematic build before diving into their buoyant, sprightly sound for the masses. The Swedish duo utilizes perky dance synths that align with the fist-bumping nature of their project.
Cosmic Love (Seven Lions Remix)
This is an oldie but a goodie. Let’s throw it back to 2012 when still on his burgeoning rise. His elegant rework of “Cosmic Love” features harp strings, impactful drum hits and his signature melodic dubstep drop. His buttery smooth melodies will inject a healthy dose of nostalgia into your system.
Spectrum (Say My Name) (Calvin Harris Remix)
You’re likely familiar with Calvin Harris’ chart-climber “Sweet Nothing” featuring Florence Welch’s belting vocals, but did you know that the A-list producer remixed “Spectrum (Say My Name)” for the indie rock sensation? The remix turned out to be a big one, racking 20+ million YouTube views and a whopping 80+ million Spotify streams.
You’ve Got The Love (Mark Knight Remix)
It’s time for the underground. Mark Knight’s club remake of “You’ve Got The Love” stretches eight minutes and takes the original record into a whole new dimension, one filled with spacey blips and sprightly percussion.
Shake It Out (Benny Benassi Remix)
This version of “Shake It Out” is simply full of energy and euphoria. Let’s rewind to the progressive house days of Tiesto and Hardwell. We can slide this Benny Benassi remix of “Shake It Out” right in there.
You’ve Got The Love (Dennis Kruissen Remix)
Dennis Kruissen’s remix of “You’ve Got The Love” is a prime example of the saying, “less is more.” His simple and clean house rendition of the Florence + The Machine record is catchy and doesn’t get too fancy or take away from the original.
Sweet Nothing (Diplo + Grandtheft Remix)
Calvin Harris’ 2014 smash “Sweet Nothing” features the band’s Florence + The Machine’s frontwoman Florence Welch and the pairing was loved by the masses. The record went on to peak at No. 10 on the Hot 100. Diplo and Grandtheft’s trap remix of the hit became a staple in many DJ sets that festival season.
