Tiësto, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Gabry Ponte join forces on a rework of Eminem’s ‘Mockingbird’

Tiësto, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, and Gabry Ponte teamed up to take on a bold project–putting an electronic spin on Eminem’s iconic hit “Mockingbird” from 2005. While remaking an Eminem track is never something to take lightly, the artists leveraged their collective 30+ years in production to craft a version that pays homage to the original and carves out its unique identity. The massive remix has been a highly anticipated release since Tiësto dropped it in his main stage set at Miami’s Ultra Music Festival back in March.

Opening with a chirpy xylophone solo, “Mockingbird” ups the ante with heart-pounding four-on-the-floor bass combined with hardstyle-influenced synths that make for an absolute dance floor heater. The distinct and nostalgic sound has seen a resurgence recently, with “Mockingbird” serving as a perfect follow-up to Tiësto, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Dido, and W&W’s “Thank You (Not So Bad)” from back in December.
