Apparently, there'll be another three:

- Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way (Jochen Simms Deep Remix) (5:28)
- Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way (Dark Intensity Remix) (4:28)
- Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way (Isak Salazar & Eric Ibiza Dubby Mix) (7:02)

Yes those were sent on Friday. Although the name we were given for the last one is the Isak Salazar & Erick Ibiza Remix. Track times match what we were given.

I have reliable information that the track indeed is named "Isak Salazar & Erick Ibiza Dubby Mix".

Add one more:

amount of remixes have been released is higher than I can count (miryclay vs soundcloud)

Ok, re: "Love is Bigger" climbing the Billboard dance club charts. How seriously can we take that? From what I can tell, Billboard doesn't distinguish between which version/remix of the song is being played in clubs. So it would seem to me that anyone with the money to commission 32 (and counting!) damn remixes of a song is going to inevitably end up on those charts. The market is beyond flooded. Or is there actually a version or versions that is getting serious play more than others?

No the chart is as you suspect, a compilation of all club reported play. And what better way to get 30 DJs to add it to their set than to get 30 DJs to remix it?

But it's still a fair measure I think, as everyone seems to be doing the same thing. I've seen so many mentions of these same DJs doing Celine Dion's Ashes, from the Deadpool soundtrack, that I've actually come to expect some of the same names to pop up on U2...and sure enough they have...

Yeah, it seems to be the trend. By releasing a ton of remixes and staggering the releases every week, it can push a song up the charts. I guess that's the only way to do it for older acts now. If the sum total of "Love is Bigger" remixes had been that 3-song digital EP released way back on May 4, I have no doubt the song would have fallen off the charts and been forgotten by now. The reason it's at #9 is because U2 keeps releasing a new batch of remixes every few days and forcing it back in the spotlight.

Is this cheating? Of course. But as you said, everyone is doing it now, and it seems to come from the same school of thought that pushes an album to #1 on Billboard by bundling it with concert ticket sales.

U2 - Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way (Isak Salazar And Erick Ibiza Remix) is now posted on Soundcloud by the DJs.

https://soundcloud.com/erickibizamusic/u2-love-is-bigger-than-anything-in-its-way-isak-salazar-and-erick-ibiza-remixoficial

And add another one to the coming soon list. Aximze has apparently remixed the track as well, and expects it out soon. Add that to Dirty Pop, Brian Cua and Offer Nissim who we know have remixed it, but haven't seen releases from yet.

Interesting. This one runs 5:03, the other mix by Isak Salazar & Erick Ibiza runs 7:02. This means that they made two mixes and the other who is named "dubby mix" is indeed a different one.

Rubicube also did a remix. Wouldn't be surprised to see this one pushed soon as well.

They seem to be using the name "Remix" and "Dubby Mix" interchangeably for this mix.  Isak Salazar posted it and it appears to be the same as the other posted earlier today.  I'm told this is just a shortened version of what was released. But guess we'll know for sure when it pops up somewhere.

Just posted our interview with Dark Intensity - his remix came out on Friday. They are also starting to do Pride nights at nightclubs across the US to tie into pride events in different cities. Will be giving out fans and posters and other goodies at these events.

Can confirm that the Salazar / Ibiza version was officially sent out with the “Dubby Mix” in the file name. It is 7:02, and the version on soundcloud is an edit of the full track from what I can tell.

Interesting, because it's not just a simple cut- off, fade-in, or fade-out, but it seems to be an actual "radio edit" type of effort.  I wonder if it, too, will see release.

Btw, the same is true for the VibePosse remix which apparently officially is named "VibePosse Dub 2.0"

And yet what appears to be the "official" artwork  that appears on YouTube and SoundCloud, both of these are just labelled with the remixer and then "Remix".  I think this could constitute either being an alternate title, certainly an "AKA".

Three promo CDs coming for Love is Bigger including 12 remixes, including the previously unreleased Offer Nissim Remix:

http://www.u2songs.com/news/love_is_bigger_promo_cds_and_pride_nights

As for the VibePosse track - it was officially sent out with the title “VibePosse Dub” And is labeled this way on the promotional CDs as well.

The Offer Nissim Remix was apparently pushed to DJs digitally today as well.

That's not quite correct. The track which was sent out digitally was named "VibePosse Dub 2.0". I asked a DJ who received it to confirm which she did.
