Listen: Tiesto remixes Gotye's 'Somebody That I Used To Know'

When Gotye’s 2011 single Somebody That I Used to Know went gangbusters and soared to the #1 position in charts worldwide, it didn’t take long for the hit to get the inevitable remix treatment…several times over. The latest producer to have a go? Tiesto.

The Dutchman has taken Gotye and Kimbra’s tip-toeing, xylophone-infused and emotionally-raw track and turned it into a typically-Tiesto club banger. To give you an idea of just how high-energy the remix is, it’s destined for inclusion on the forthcoming Club Life: Volume Two Miami.

Tiesto’s remix is available to buy on Beatport, though you can check out a preview of the track below. For reference, we’ve also embedded Gotye and Kimbra’s recent Saturday Night Live performance of the original track – quite the contrast.

Pretty woeful mix from Tiesto. Aren't these the same stabs pretty much every producer is using at the moment. They're getting very old very fast.
