Martin Garrix’s collaboration with Dua Lipa, “Scared To Be Lonely,” has been making its rounds with millions of plays, and the single is sure to keep its momentum well into spring. As with any track this big, the world’s community of producers has taken the liberty of remixing the arrangement into a wide range of genres, from future house, to trap and future bass.
We’ve selected five of our favorites to get you started, so give these a play through and see if they don’t send you on a blissful path of musical discovery.
Years ago, Hardwell and Martin Garrix made a song together called “Music Box.” Much like his collaboration with Ed Sheeran, “Rewind Repeat It,” “Music Box” has been held away from fans at arm’s length.
Today, Hardwell revealed in a reddit AMA that “Music Box” will likely never come out.
Though the format of his comment is a little odd, it’s clear that he’s referring to the collab and that just makes us sad. It makes us even more sad that, if a high-profile collab with someone like Hardwell will never be released, it’s unlikely that “Rewind Repeat It” will ever get released either.

2017 is sure to be a big year for Julian. His new single “Say Love” is due for release on February 24.

Last night, Bieber posted a blurry selfie with half of Martin Garrix’s face which you can see below. While we don’t know if they are just buddies hanging out, or if they’re working on a song together, the fact that Garrix has his DAW open in the picture and are in the studio suggests the latter. If these two are collaborating, we’re excited to see what the duo will cook up.

An upbeat bassline, hard-hitting drums, an infectious lead synth and Fox’s very own vocals put the icing on the cake.

Pop singer DuaLipa‘s hit track “Be The One” has been sitting comfortably at the top the Trending Charts this week, alongside her collaboration with Sean Paul, “No Lie.” (Not to mention she’s also just put out a huge collaboration with Martin Garrix, “Scared To Be Lonely.”) As one of the most recognized British singers of the current era, her influence is now strong enough to creep towards the EDM circuit.
Netsky, Belgian ambassador of drum and bass, recently got ahold of her “Be The One” stems, effortlessly transforming the No. 2 track into a blissful and laid back drum and bass heater. Using Dua Lipa’s vocals as the backbone of the track, the highly melodic remix gives new life to the original arrangement as pounding percussion is fluidly mixed with soaring highs and pleasant synths.
Check out the remix below, featured on UKF Drum & Bass, and say hello to the song that’ll be stuck in your head for the rest of the week.
