Zedd feat. Matthew Koma – Spectrum (The Best Unofficial Remixes)

With the list of official “Spectrum” remixes making the cut for the EP, there also came a much longer list of unofficial remixes that were either made for purely recreation or entered into the Beatport Play contest. I’ve narrowed down the field to 16 different versions that I thought all did the Zedd and Matthew Koma original some justice.

My number one unofficial “Spectrum” remix has to come from Lazerdisk Party Sex. It’s one of the most original takes on the song to date, and delves into this funky, retro-future disco that works surprisingly better than you’d expect.

Coming in at number 2 is the underrated D’Anconia remix. He put this out a little before the huge wave of remixes started pouring out, so it kind of got lost, or forgotten among what came after. The only real issue is the lack of length, but I think with a little more progression in a 6 minute version, you would be looking at a serious contender for not just the best unofficial remix, but one of the best remixes period.

My third favorite is KDrew’s massive electro/dubstep remix. There were a lot of attempts to womp-out “Spectrum,” but no one really hit the spot like KDrew, and I could easily see this taking the place of the Monsta remix on the Spectrum EP.

Claiming the fourth spot is Norway’s Aleksander Vinter, better known as Savant, who takes a route similar to that of Lazerdisk Party Sex. It starts out seemingly calm before flipping the switch to an all out electro banger with choppy, quick hitting sounds coming at you from all angles.

Rounding out my top 5 is the notorious Justin 3LAU, who should do well to fill the progressive house void on this list. While the melody is almost identical to that of his “Back To New” remix, that’s not necessarily a bad thing (it’s only his second production mind you), and the flow of his rework is a really good fit for the Matthew Koma vocals. Dance floor filth indeed.

While these next honorable mentions may not have made my top 5, they all still have their moments, and are definitely worth giving a listen to. Who knows, your list may be completely different from mine. Listen and download (some of them) for free below.
