I've stumbled upon a bunch of remixes by Skeler, many times not knowing the original song he was remixing. I then listen to the original and am impressed with how much better he made it. For example:

A$AP Rocky - Fuk Sleep (original, meh):

Skeler Remix:

Doja Cat - Need to Know (original, awful. Most of her music is.)

Skeler Remix:

Oliver Tree - Jerk (original, not bad):

Skeler Remix:

VIZE Feat. Lannia - Stars (original, it's ok):

Skeler Remix:

Juice WRLD - Conversations (original, not great):

Skeler Remix:

Devilish Trio - As Light Fades (original, it's ok):

Skeler remix:

Lea Rue - I Can't Say No (original):

Skeler Remix:

Cannons have done some pretty amazing remixes that I prefer over the originals too.

The Isley Brothers - Footsteps in the Dark (original, fantastic song):

Bruce Springsteen - Dancing in the Dark (original, not a fan of him personally):

Kings of Leon - Sex on Fire (original):

I really want to like Cannons. I don't like the fact that they mess with her voice so much on EVERYTHING they put out. I want to hear her sing.

Back in the early 2000's I was learning German in college and was looking for German music I could listen too. I stumbled on Lafee. I recently looked her up again and she released a 80's "cover" album a couple years ago and although the songs are what I would call "reimagined" as directly translated songs rarely work, I really like it. She does a cover of Thomas Anders' Heisskalter Engel which is a "cover" of Real Life's Send Me an Angel. My mind goes back to my favorite movie as a kid, "Rad" whenever I hear this.

Another one I like is Goldhouse's cover of Fleetwood Mac's Dreams. I like the original, but this one is "modernized".

He also remixed Billie Eilish's Ocean Eyes which I do prefer over the original.

He did Zara Larsson's So Good.

Another guy I follow is Sigala. I really like his Easy Love which samples the Jackson 5's ABC. Not technically a remix, but thought I'd include it anyway.

For me, The Sundays. Probably best cover I’ve ever heard.

What am I doing? I'm talking to an empty telephone

For me it’s Depeche Mode’s cover of/tribute to David Bowie.


Not minority enough!
