To no surprise, David Guetta has once again mastered the airwaves with his production for Ludacris and Usher, “Rest Of My Life.” The pop tune is no longer limited to the subtle touches of electronic energy, as Nicky Romero, Hard Rock Sofa, and Daddy’s Groove have taken their turns for the remix package. Nicky picks up where David left off, giving the track a boost behind the chords, while Hard Rock Sofa make the vocals their own around gritty synth layers. Daddy’s Groove also takes “Rest Of My Life” a step further from the radio, injecting slaps and bass kicks suited for the dance floor.
The last time Hard Rock Sofa remixed a David Guetta production, they sent “Just One Last Time” to the top of Beatport’s Top 10 chart with a big room hit for the books. The Russian squad is back in action, taking Ludacris and Usher’s airwave dominating “Rest Of My Life” for a spin. Transforming Guetta’s commercially inclined production, Hard Rock Sofa swaps the sound you’ve heard on the radio for a progressive, acid line, and while complimented by Usher’s hook, Ludacris’ rap verses are removed from the equation. With no release date in sight, enjoy “Rest Of My Life” in a new respect with the preview.Posted by
Best of the Rest is a daily feature from Dancing Astronaut that recaps the most important posts of the day as well as the stuff we didn’t get to. With the rapidity that dance music news and releases come out it’s difficult for us to hit everything — we hope BOTR serves as a catch-all.

For a mainstream American song, I thought the original was quite good. It had a large helping of dirty dutch sound..however Chuckie keeps finding new ways to invent himself (kind of like Kobe on the basketball court). This drop is very unique..a sound that I have never heard before. Major props to Chuckie on this remix…this is the kind of innovation that makes me proud to be obsessed with house music and culture. As a bonus check out the Dresden & Johnston Club mix.
NOTE: Dear Brett and Nik…you know I could have made this picture much worse…thank me now.
