Move aside Britney Spears, Lady GaGa is back and she wants blood.
“Judas” is the newest single out of the GaGa Monster factory that sports a clever resemblance to “Bad Romance,” making it much more remix-able than the Madonna-derived “Born This Way.” After many listens through the the newest remix pack, we have narrowed it down to a selection of tracks that may please the ear buds on your EDM palates:

I personally found this remix very difficult to listen to but I will post it here since I know some of you enjoy blippy house. That said, I found the sequential fades to be extremely distracting and almost painful to bear, masking the original qualities of the song. To better elaborate the sensation, it felt like someone was covering my ears and then uncovering them over and over – wholly unpleasant for me, but potentially enjoyable for some of you.
This remix is for all the tech house fans who seek a more industrial feel. While the track doesn’t stray too far from the original, I love that the verse is replaced with Rammstein-like drums and synths to create a lurking underground club vibe. What are you waiting for, Twilight fans? Start listening at 1:15 to jump right into the grunge.
THIS remix is the very reason this post even happened. What shocked me is that none of the other mentioned DJ’s capitalized on GaGa’s vocal crescendo in the chorus to create a strong and catchy build; Sex Ray Vision, on the other hand, took complete and utter advantage of the melodic vocals to create one of the best GaGa club remixes I have heard (and I’ve heard many).
The song opens with your standard watery trance synths that consistently do a great job of pulling in your average Joe listener. This is quite misleading, however, because within the first 15 seconds the song kicks into high gear, inundating your eardrums with a flood of synths that emote so damn well. This track is right down Laidback Luke’s alley, so don’t be surprised if he decides to include this in his forthcoming sets.
