Up next, Tom & Jame. The talented duo have been rapidly rising through the ranks this year and their remix of Sun Goes Down will only push them one step further. Utilizing the vocals and melody of the original, they decide to experiment with future house in the drop with a hint of Melbourne bounce to give it that little bit of extra flavor.

Newbie to the scene, Brooks adds another track to his arsenal of remixes with a bangin’ bounce oriented rendition of the original. The verse builds with a beautiful synth that takes over the original’s melody, followed by a powerful progressive house sound in the chorus stylized in a future house format. Brooks manages to blend genres seamlessly, resulting in a track of epic proportions.
Hugel‘s swing at the track stands out from the rest of the remixes; the track focuses more on MAGIC!’s vocal, giving it a crispier feel. The chorus is molded with powerful piano house chords coupled with vocal chops that’ll get you grooving. In combination with the Frenchman’s signature bass-line, the remix is ready to hit dance-floors.
Finally, a summer mix provided by the original artists themselves. Sun Goes Down heads for deeper waters in this rework. Showtek and Guetta retain the original’s melodies and vocals, but slow the track down a little bit and replace the synth of the main chords; allowing for a rather relaxed version of the original.
