Tiësto is back with two more brand new remixes that have been lighting up his live sets lately. The first is a remix of Alok & Ava Max’s reimagining of the 1996 trance tune “Ayla” by Ayla called “Car Keys.” Anyone who has ever heard a dance music song immediately recognizes the du-du-dunh-dun-dun synth beats from the original track. While Alok & Ava Max’s version was kind of more old school sounding more reliant on vocals; the Tiësto remix unleashes those famous notes for the main stage. This one has been a weapon in many DJs live sets the past few months.
The second remix is Tiësto’s hardcore remix of Issey Cross’s “Bittersweet Goodbye.” Utilizing the instantly recognizable violin melody from The Verve’s 1997 smash hit “Bittersweet Symphony”, “Bittersweet Goodbye” was the perfect closing tune for Tiësto’s Tomorrowland set this year. In fact, he even brought Issey Cross out to sing during his weekend two performance. Aside from capturing a melody that any millennial will recognize, this remix sees Tiësto dabbling more in D&B and hardcore, and we’re all for it over here.
