Nearly three months after Armin van Buuren released Intense, remix master Mikkas has returned to the album to further ratchet up the intensity. In his remix of “Beautiful Life,” the Danish DJ pushed the boundaries of the tune’s big room sound into new territory. Opting for glitchy over glossy, the remix carries Cindy Alma’s vocals from a bass-heavy intro to a a more melodic piano-based bridge. Building on Armin’s juxtaposition of emotive vocal and energetic beat, Mikkas’ effort finds harmony in the discord. Though no official release date has been announced, if we had to guess we would say the track will be released alongside Protoculture’s rework in the near future.
