'Love Is Lost' (Faithless 2014 remix)

Faithless transform the standout track from Bowie's 2013 album 'The Next Day' from a growling, guitar-driven rock song into a euphoric 10-minute trance epic complete with a centrepiece breakdown.

'Jump They Say' (Leftfield remix)

Bowie's emotive 'Jump They Say' was an expression of grief for his schizophrenic brother Terry following his suicide. Here it gets a progressive house workout from seminal electronic group Leftfield.

'Rebel Rebel' (Soulwax Club mix)

Perhaps the most dancefloor-primed number on this list. The glam rock guitars and thumping percussion combine to form an irresistible, booty-shaking club anthem.

'Love Is Lost' (Hello Steve Reich Mix by James Murphy for the DFA)

James Murphy's remix samples Steve Reich's 'Clapping Music', and the track itself feels like the gradual shift and then surge of energy of a crowd moving from slow-clap to ovation, building from minimal beginnings into a passionate, swelling climax.
