Throwing himself against the quirky musings of Woulter De Backer, better known under his Gotye alias, Dutch Electronic icon Tiësto proves himself up to the challenge of extending his genre’s reign on chart worthy remodels. Fusing climatic drops with expertly layered synths, his remix of ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ celebrates the unique melodic stylings of this sensational top line from the Belgian artist and Zelanian songstress Kimbra with the utmost style.

Maintaining the original’s distinct emotive charms with chugging chords and that signature stadium-proof magic now associated with the Dutch heavyweight, his return to high-end remix duties is one of epic qualities from the outset. Taking his musical legacy to new heights with every fresh injection, this sound remix indicates the sky is still the limits for a legend still scaling the history books of EDM.
