Deadmau5 x Calvin Harris - I'm Not Alone

One of the best things about electronic music is that anytime an artist produces a hit single, at least a handful of others remix the track and make it their own. The outcome falls somewhere between symbiotic cannibalism and a show of genuine respect for the other artist. Personally IDGAF what the reason is because when the chips falls, it's the attentive consumers that win through all this cross-pollination.

Take @calvinharris's latest single I'm Not Alone for example. I had the fortunate choice of deciding between the more traditional house version that @tiesto brought to his remix of I'm Not Alone; or, the more progressive house version that @deadmau5 crafted on his version of I'm Not Alone. While both are both very different and very awesome in their own respects, I picked Deadmau5's version because it resonated with my current mood a little more than the former. Simply put I was in the mood for some smooth electro rhythms and it doesn't get much more soothing than Joel Zimmerman's Pure Moods quality synthesizers. If I would have been in more of an energetic, hyped up mood I probably would have posted Tijs Michiel Verwest's version.

Key takeaway, you can't go wrong with either and luckily you can buy them both in one place if you feel so inclined...#LoadedSingle
