Like a G6 Remixes

Jesse James vs DJ Philistine vs Disco Fries vs Basic Physics

Like a G6 by Far East Movement ft. Cataracs & Dev

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few months (and it’d have to be a rock without access to the internet or mainstream radio), you’ll have been exposed to Far East Movement’s “Like a G6“. Love it or hate it, it’s topped charts everywhere.

Personally, when I first listened to it (unaware of the hit it was to become), I thought it was catchy enough, but it was relatively uninspiring, and grew old after a few listens. It was banished to my music library wasteland that is “three stars”. Well, it’s become a hit, and with any huge hit, comes a shitload of remixes. “Like a G6″ is no exception – there’s a ton of ‘em, so there’s no excuse not to find at least one to fall in love with. Here’s some of my favorites:

It was clear that “Like a G6″ was gonna be a club hit. But with even more of a club vibe is Jesse Jamz’ remix, with a juicy, juicy bassline that makes you want to get under a strobe and aggressively lose control.

Who would’ve thought that “Like a G6″ could have been a sad song? DJ Philistine did, apparently, and I’m glad that they did. I’m a sucker for sparse piano, and I’m even more of a sucker for sparse piano that breaks down into complimentary dubstep.

Probably the most unchanged from the original, but one of my favorites none the less. Essentially, the bassline is much filthier, distorted and heavy – and actually ascends to climaxes instead of just being there. There’s also some nifty synth in the interludes, adding a little bit of eeriness.

If there was one thing the original had, it was catchy funky swagga bass. Something DeadMau5′s track “Ghosts N Stuff” also had. I guess that’s why they fit so well together.
