The remix package for Ms. Grey‘s new single “C’mon Let Me Ride“ (the original version of which features and was mixed by Eminem) was released one week ago (February 5) – check out a few of the reviews of the remixes by Valentino Khan, and Mikael Weermets with Danny Avila below!
Valentino Khan Remix | EarMilk ::
“….the track is a hard hitting frenetic remix that takes Skylar Grey’s explicit bubblegum pop anthem and get’s it club ready….”
Mikael Weermets & Danny Avila Remix | iEnlive ::
“….with an incredibly prolific career these past few years alone; Wisconsin born songstress Skylar Grey is teeming with sheer edge and a revolutionary musical adeptness. The five-time Grammy nominated music savant has copped the Billboard Top 100 and was the deft lyrist behind Eminem and Rihanna’s “Love The Way You Lie” – which swept the globe with unassailable power. If all this hasn’t been ample enough for Grey, her latest coup “C’Mon Let Me Ride” has received the remix treatment by none other than bullet-proof EDM chiefs Mikael Weermets and Danny Avila. Juxtaposed with Grey’s dazzling vocals, the Trapstep remix twists with unexpected components of House, Trap and Dubstep….”
Skylar Grey | Elektro Daily ::
“….EDM prodigy and ‘Best Newcomer DJ’ award winner Danny Avila has been rocking dance floors around the world since early adolescence. Now he tries his hand at trap with this new remix of Skylar Grey’s “C’Mon Let Me Ride.” Remixed in conjunction with Swedish producer Weermets, the track is a bass-loaded dub-step-meets-trap powerhouse piece that pairs off perfectly with Skylar’s always-lovely vocals….”

“….electronic upstart Danny Avila continues his early assault on 2013 as the 17-year-old sensation reveals news of his first official remix, Skylar Grey’s ‘C’mon Let Me Ride – Mikael Weermets & Danny Avila’s Trapset Remix’….
The young Spaniard takes on remix duties with Swedish tour de force Weermets, together unleashing a dynamic new ‘Trapstep’ take on proceedings that is jam packed to the hilt with unbridled energy. Combining production elements from dubstep and trap, the edit features thundering basslines, huge, shuddering drops, and infectious, rolling melodies that allow Grey’s intoxicating vocals to freewheel deliciously on top. Coming off the back of the original 2012 mix, that featured the infamous spitting talents of none other than Eminem, this explosive 2013 cut is certain to prove an instant hit with fans on both sides of the Atlantic, and will only further cement both Avila and Weermets as emerging leaders of the New Production Pack.
….Avila and Weermets will be dropping ‘C’mon Let Me Ride’ across the length and breadth of the US and Canada as they go, no doubt destroying a fair number of speaker stacks in the process….”
Trapstep Remix | Death by Electro ::
“….young up and comer Danny Avila, a spanish wunderkind we brought you several months ago, teams up with Swedish DJ Mikael Weermeets in a rager that steps far away from any type of style we have ever heard from either. ….This beast makes the wait well worth it. I have not heard an opening to a track like this in ages. Its dark, agressive, and sets up the drop perfectly. Unfortunately, the drop is a little tame, but with repeat listens, the subtlety of it all really makes for a superb track….”
