2016 was a devastating year for music; so many legends and icons left us too soon.Luckily for us dance floor junkies though, there are a multitude of remixes available to help us commemorate our dearly departed.

One more recent passing was of George Michael, former member of WHAM! and esteemed gay icon. Kinky Roland remixed his track "White Light", which was already a dance floor gem, into an infectious club ready banger.



Prince is the loss to the music world that hit me hardest this year - and I mean stood up, screamed, and caused a scene in the office hard. This ambient remix of "Little Red Corvette" by Brave Status is marvelous.


Pop icon David Bowie struck the world with grief with his sudden passing. Who better to pay tribute to him than musical genius James Murphy, with this rework of "Love Is Lost" for DFA Records.

Phife Dawg, from A Tribe Called Quest, also left us this year. In addition to a street in Queens being renamed in his memory, this fun Bit Funk remix of "1nce Again" can help us keep moving.

Last February took Maurice White, founder of Earth, Wind, and Fire. Enjoy this extended dance mix of "Stand By Me".

This groovy remix of "How Long Do I Have To Wait For You" pays tribute to the late Sharon Jones, who was known for performing with her backing band the Dap-Kings.

This rough year couldn't close out without claiming one more celebrity - Debbie Reynolds passed just one day after her daughter Carrie Fisher. I'll leave with you with this odd yet endearing trap remix of "Good Morning" from Singing In The Rain.
