Battle of the Beats is a feature from Dancing Astronaut that pits two remixes against one another to determine which production made better use of the original. With remix packages growing in length and increasing in frequency, the number of reworked tracks has skyrocketed. After wading through the archives, we are opening it up to our readers to weigh in on whose rendition takes the proverbial cake.

Kaskade & Project 46 – Last Chance (Dirtyphonics remix)

France’s Dirtyphonics make good on their name with their remix of Kaskade and Project 46′s uplifting Atmosphere collab. Ratcheting the tune from 128 to 140 bpm, the quartet beef up the bassline while modifying the melody into something a tad more face-melting. Supporting the vocals but snipping away a few refrains, the remix instead highlights a rebuilt dub framework complete with deep dips and a heavy dose of reverb. Only the second Ultra outing for the Dim Mak regulars, the Dirtyphonics remix of “Last Chance” demonstrates their versatility.

Kaskade & Project 46 – Last Chance (Clockwork remix)

Debuted at EDC Las Vegas, Clockwork‘s remix of the collab wastes no time getting to the punchline. An electro take on the euphoric tune, the track utilizes the pounding tribal-esque percussion popularized at festival grounds around the world this summer. Structured as a back and forth between vocal and vertigo-inducing builds, the tune also engages in a bit of piano chord play that allows the original’s plucky bridge to peek through. Spanning several genres while consistently hitting the crowd-appeal note, Clockwork’s rework has celebrated its success with a spot on the Beatport Top 100.
