Taken from his charitable ”DANCE (RED), SAVE LIVES” compilation, Tiësto partners with non-profit organisation (RED) to put a very 21st century twist on U2’s ‘Pride (In The Name Of Love)’ for the sake of fighting AIDS.

While the general consensus goes that this 1984 classic is best left untouched, Tiësto’s latest work sees him lay down as respectful a remix as possible under the controversial circumstances. With proceeds for the record sales going to the Global Fund, Tijs Verwets provides a melodic remix of a true U2 classic in hopes of raising awareness over the elimination and transmission of HIV from mothers to their babies by 2015.

  • Hmmm, i like it.

  • Bono is a fucking idiot, he clearly never heard of overpopulation

  • I wonder at what point Bono decided “ok, these will be the sunglasses I wear for the rest of my life.” Otherwise the remix is pretty good.

  • I actually like it.

  • It’s an OK remix, but come ooooon, it’s U2, it just doesn’t feel right to remix them…

    And Danne, I hope you’re joking…!

  • i would say Dirty South did a way better job on his remix of “I’ll Go Crazy If I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight”

  • This would be a barely ok remix for any other song, but really, remixing U2 and this comes out…? mjehh.

  • Är det ingen som håller med om att detta låter lite väl mycket som DYWC?
