REVIEW: Armin van Buuren & Garibay - I Need You (feat. Olaf Blackwood) (Remixes) out on Armada Music

Entering the fray are three exceptional remixes of Armin van Buuren's recent smash with Garibay and Olaf Blackwood. Through the treatments of ANGEMI, Mokita and Galactic Marvl, 'I Need You' branches out to a three-piece package that's as remarkably out-of-the-box as it is down-tempo goodness. It's what you just have to feast your ears on.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]I Need You by Armin van Buuren & Garibay feat. Olaf Blackwood is definitely a worldwide hit and new remixes are added to the already impressive package. ANGEMI goes for a massive trapical house remix with great rhythm, awesome synths, melodramatic strings and tripping out groove to smash it on any new trap rave stage. Mokita version is fluffy deep house at its very best. Tranquil grooves, nu disco basslines, smooth rhythm, awesome piano chords and overall spring friendly atmosphere. Last but not least  Galactic Marvl take us on a heavy dubstep/chill out direction with abstract arrangement, cinematic atmosphere and mysterious effects and smashing basslines to make a lot of loud noises. #PureGold Love IT [/content]
