David Bowie, we all know, is an artist who had a massive impact on all music genres, including electronic music. The British rock star reinvented himself a lot through the years, exploring different blends of theatricality, stage personas and more importantly music genre. The electronic music community had fun re-inventing some of his classics. Here's a handpicked selection of his best remixes.
2. Space Oddity (Munk Machine Remix): A vintage-inspired remix of the classic Space Oddity track, here re-invented with a techno attitude.
3. Love Is Lost (Hello Steve Reich Mix by James Murphy for the DFA): A great, highly percussive remix with minimal melodies and unique beats sourced from clap samples.
4. Rebel Rebel (Soulwax Club Mix): A remix that stays true to the rock energy of the original song, while adding some new textures.
5. DJ (Benny Benassi remix): a fun and colorful remix with lots of synth harmonies and melodies
