David Morales & Satoshi Tomiie takes the familiar deeper new york route for their stonker of a remix. Starts out with a small breakbeat section to add a solid beat section and then head into a smaller vocal introduction breakdown and then gets the pace going again and bring back the funk. Not perticulary Morales best remixwork but it's banging work
Howie B takes the foundation of the original and adds a bleepy broken touch to it, it's a fairly decent remix but i can't get into it for the life of me.
Steve Osbourne also takes the broken route but this one is more or less the original clubbed up a bit and then added a breakbeat to it. It's a well produced remix, but then again all of his remixes (together with Oakenfold) of U2's big tracks has been

Discotheque is, in my opinion at least, one of U2's better recent singles, and these are some very good remixes.

The David Morales mixes are very 1997, they seem almost about to erupt into hip house at times. Their style is more of a light dancefloor track, and rather unlike U2.

Howie B's 2 mixes are similar, but also very different. The Hexidecimal mix is a chunky clubrock stormer, with a great bassline which stays true to the original track while simultaneously beefing it up for the clubs. The Hairy B mix is almost a dub of the Hecidecimal mix, removing some of the tune and lyrics, and bringing in weird sampled vocals near the end, almost a Tone Loc style rap.

The Hecidecimal mix is probably the better of the four, but it's also on the 1990-2000 Greatest Hits album. If however you also like the DM mixes this is worth a buy, for the variation between all four versions.
