What’s the best way to make a huge release even bigger? Disclosure know how! Immediately following the release of their debut record Settle, one of the lead singles off it, You & Me featuring Eliza Doolittle has received the remix treatment from the likes of Baauer, Bicep and Toro Y Moi. Although the remixes have been streamed around the internet for a few weeks now, their official release came yesterday via Island Records.

In terms of the Bicep remix, the track still keeps the upbeat feeling of the original, but introduces a refreshing breakdown that makes this version much smoother.

Baauer’s mix deftly pulls away from his trap-heavy bass stylings for a different kind of festival pleaser. Pitching up Eliza Doolittle’s soulful hook into a speedy whine parallels Baauer’s love of rave synths, but the bursts of rolling drums double as two-step tribute and tightly-wound hi-hats give a steroid boost to the already uplifting track.

Toro Y Moi’s mix takes a synthed-out, warped approach which is far more chilled than the other two, while still maintaining some form of dancefloor merit. My favourite one. Which do you like most?
