Tiësto, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, and Gabry Ponte Revitalize Eminem's "Mockingbird" with a Dance Anthem Twist


In an exciting new release that has already got people talking, Tiësto, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, and Gabry Ponte have joined forces to create a fantastic new electronic version of Eminem's 2005 classic "Mockingbird." The track was released under Musical Freedom on 3 May 2024. It's not just a cover; it's a complete transformation that melds happy hardcore, EDM, and big room genres into a single, explosive dance track.

The intro is pretty haunting, with a xylophone, but then it ramps up the energy with some intense four-on-the-floor bass and hardstyle synths. This track isn't just a song; it's an experience designed to get people dancing again at clubs and festivals worldwide. Following the success of their December 2023 hit "Thank You (Not So Bad)", which got over 130 million Spotify streams, this collaboration was first teased by Tiësto at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, where it got a great reception.

The artists really bring their A-game to this project. Tiësto, known as the "Godfather of EDM," Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, the energetic Belgian duo who've held DJ Mag's top spots, and Gabry Ponte of Eiffel 65 fame, all contribute to this track's dynamic and nostalgic feel. The artists' collective experience and unique styles blend seamlessly to pay homage to Eminem’s original while ensuring "Mockingbird" soars as a standalone powerhouse in today's music scene.

Tiësto had this to say about the collaboration: "I'm really excited to be working with these amazing dance music artists to give an iconic early 2000s hit a fresh new look. This track just keeps getting better with time, and I hope our version keeps this incredible record alive.

This track is set to be a firm favourite in their sets throughout the festival season, honouring the legacy of the original while also making its mark in modern dance music. With its strong build-up and nostalgic feel, 'Mockingbird' is set to be one of the year's most memorable releases.
