Workout music often gets taken to task for being monotonous. By that token, workout remixes could be even more one-dimensional, as they generally repurpose the highlights of the original over a steady beat. While this criticism is often warranted, the below recap of our favorite recent remixes demonstrates there are plenty of nuanced club tracks out there, as well.
Starting with the most conventional dance tracks, you’ll find an updated version of a Fatboy Slim favorite and Nicky Romero’s version of a new single from Martin Garrix and Mike Yung. Moving into the rap department, you’ll find Skrillex taking on Travis Scott’s signature song and Dillon Francis extending the same courtesy to Cardi B, Bad Bunny and J Balvin. Beyond the traditional club fare, there’s a rock remix from U2 and a country/electronic hybrid from Dan + Shay.
In total, the range of BPMs at work should provide lots of points of access to the mix. Once you’re in the thick of things, the variety of genres should keep you both motivated and engaged. So, if you’re looking for ways to squeeze a little more inspiration out of your recent favorites, scan the tracks below and see what suits you.
