Remixes: DJ Emergency takes on Alicia Keys

This is one of the best remixes I've heard in months. DJ Emergency remixed "No One" in a way that I would never have expected to work: he strips away all the acoustic instruments and replaces them with a synth-loaded beat more or less inspired by "The Way I Are", and then instead of speeding it up into a full-on dance track, he slows it down even further. The whole thing adds up to a surreal, euphoric effect that's possibly better than the original.
