Porcelain

One of the most iconic electronic tracks of all time, Porcelain is almost flawless. Can it be remixed? Should it be remixed? Is it sacred ground? Well, Above & Beyond and Arty tried their hand at remixes. I generally like them both, but there is no way to improve upon the original. Porcelain can only be made a bit more modern sounding and fresh but with that goes much of its charm.

Let me know. Can Porcelain be done justice in a remix? Did these two accomplish that? Which do you like better?

Original

Above & Beyond

I feel like they share my sentiment about Porcelain being perfect. However, I think this caused them to avoid altering the iconic parts of the song resulting in a remix that feels a bit disjointed at the start. Its a hard balance to strike, but I think the track finds it more towards the end.

Arty

Arty just goes for it. He gets his hands on it and really makes it his own while respecting the original.
