10 Best Remixes of 2012

Remixes are so…weird. I’m very into remixes, and I dig endlessly for ones that I like every year (believe me, they’re hard to find). Even so, there are usually 20 that I don’t like for every 1 that I kind of enjoy. It’s impossible not to be compare to the original, near impossible to improve upon the original, and very difficult to even match it. Now either I didn’t dig hard enough this year, or it was a down year for remixes on the whole. Either way, I’ve still got 10 coming up that I enjoyed a lot.
