The Eurovision 2016 remixes are coming thick and fast. Fresh on the heels of Ireland, Australia, Latvia and Israel, Azerbaijan becomes the latest entry to get a spin on the mixing decks. Never ones to do things by halves, the land of fire gifts us with two official remixes of Samra’s “Miracle”. One mix will be of particular interest to dedicated Eurovision fans, as it’s been created by non other than Tomas N’evergreen — one half of Denmark’s Eurovision 2010 duo.
Samra “Miracle” (Tomas N’evergreen and Graddus remix)
In collaboration with Graddus, N’evergreen lays on plenty of electronic beats and synths to create a more danceable version of Samra’s breakup ballad. It’s not quite a disco banger, but those who prefer their EDM a little laid back should appreciate it. Kamil’s moombah remix is a more exciting alternative. Its fusion of house beats with reggae elements brings out the summer vibes, and should have Euroclub revellers shaking their hips with cocktails in hand.

While the DJs play, Samra’s been busy on the promo circuit. She performed at the Moscow Eurovision Gala Concert in early April, while last week she jetted out to Tel-Aviv for the inaugural Israel Calling preview party. She even got down and dirty planting trees in the rain — a break from her normal routine of working out in the gym and jogging on Baku boulevard.
