Although Eurovision is nowadays considered to be a party, not all songs entered into the competition are ready made for the dance floor. Thankfully, Eurovision stars often release remixes of their entries so that we can dance the night away to their tracks. Now, Stefania and Damir Kedžo have joined the list of 2020 artists to drop remixes of their Eurovision songs, adding dance beats to “SUPERG!RL” and “Divlji vjetre”.
Although we can’t hit the Euroclub this year, these two stars are making sure we still have the necessary tracks to turn our own homes into a dance floor.
Stefania shows a more mature side in the “SUPERG!RL” remix
Dutch-Greek singer Stefania was selected to represent Greece on the Eurovision stage in 2020 with the ethnic-pop song “SUPERG!RL”. The remix of the song takes things up a notch.
The added dance beats and uptempo styling of the “SUPERG!RL” remix makes it much more of a party track that you can dance along to.
In the original music video for “SUPERG!RL” Stefania was portrayed as a teenage schoolgirl. However, the video released along with the remix shows off a more mature side to the star. Stefania moves from young woman to fierce diva. It gives us a hint that the stage show for “SUPERG!RL” at Eurovision 2020 might have moved away from the junior image of the music video and shown off this more mature side of Stefania.

The wild winds are dancing in Damir Kedžo’s “Divlji vjetre” remix
Croatia’s Damir Kedžo was set to serve the powerful Balkan ballad “Divlji vjetre” at Eurovision 2020. Now, the star has switched things up with the remix. This version of the song was initially teased during Eurovision Song Celebration 2020, when this year’s artists were tasked with performing their entry in another genre.
The verses of “Divlji vjetre” remain pretty much unchanged for the remix. Instead, the dance beats are added in for the chorus, taking the song in a new direction.
Damir has stated on Twitter that the remix version of “Divlji vjetre” was actually the initial path that he and the producers went down when producing the song. In the end, they decided to make the song a ballad, which is more in line with Kedžo’s usual genre of music.

Bonus: Samanta Tīna goes bananas in “Still Breathing” remix
Samanta Tīna was selected to represent Latvia at Eurovision 2020 with “Still Breathing”. The star released the DJ Monsta remix of her entry at the end of March. Since we didn’t cover it at the time, we thought we’d add it in here for anyone who hadn’t come across it yet.
You might have thought that the original version of “Still Breathing” was out there enough that it couldn’t get any crazier. You’d be correct. Titled the “Monsta Goes Bananas But Still Breathing Remix”, this version of the song actually pairs things back compared to the original. The drop in the chorus is less pronounced and is followed by a series of processed vocals rather than the original dub-step beats.
