Martin Garrix & David Guetta – So Far Away (Remixes Vol. 2)

When Dutch maestro Martin Garrix announced his long-awaited collaboration with French legend David Guetta, anticipation amongst EDM fans was an all-time high, and in the shape of ‘So Far Away’, the pair certainly didn’t disappoint.

Following a diverse and eclectic remix bundle which featured reworkings from the likes of Nicky Romero and Blinders, Guetta and Garrix decided that one remix bundle simply wasn’t enough, and have today unleashed the next volume of interpretations of their progressive hit.

Regularly releasing on STMPD RCRDS, CMC$ presents his own beefed-up version of the original, keeping the structure similar but adding even more epic bombasticness. Latest STMPD RCRDS signee CODES channels pumping late-’90s speed garage on his rip-roaring remix. Whilst Curbi provides a manic interpretation as banging beats and cartoon-sized bleep riffs provide an intense contrast to the vocals.

Also new on STMPD RCRDS is the Australian hook provided by duo Bad Decisions, who are going dark and dirty on their version of the track. Osrin serves up something truly different, with stumbling, drunken 8-bit melodies and chopped-up beats providing the backbone for this sweetly melodic experiment.

One thing is for sure, with the 2 remix packages now released, there is truly something for everyone’s taste across these bundles.
