Need-to-know background info: The procedure so far in Phase 3 has been that EMI commission more remixes than they know they will actually officially use, then Damon has the final say over what becomes 'official' / approved. When commissioning the remixes, EMI give out the 'remix parts' for the track. It's fairly easy to tell when a track actually uses remix parts, and as far as is known no remix parts have leaked so if a remix uses the remix parts, it's been commissioned by EMI (also, many of the remixers have written about being asked to do remixes).

For 'release', if the remix got an official release, only that is noted (even though many of them came out other ways first, e.g. radio play, etc)


Stylo

Stylo (Labrinth SNES Remix)
Status: Official
Released: Gorillaz youtube, Stylo Remixes promo, On Melancholy Hill itunes LP
Notes: feat Tinie Tempah
Stylo (Alex Metric Remix)
Status: Official
Released: Gorillaz youtube, Stylo Remixes promo. also on the 'Pure Pacha Dance' remix album.
Notes: There was confusion after Alex Metric told a fan the remix didn't get approval. But in the end it did.

Notes: feat Chiddy Bang
Stylo (DJ Kofi Remix)

Status: Not approved
Released: mp3 sharing
Notes:
Stylo (Tong & Rogers Wonderland Mix)
Status: Official
Released: Pete Tong's Wonderland 2010 Album
Notes: The version on the released album is mixed into other tracks, but in other respects appears to be the full version. A part of the remix was played on Pete Tong's radio show before the release of the album.

Notes: FSG are FreeStyleGames, makers of DJ Hero 2.

Notes:


Notes:
Also note for Stylo
- DJ Steve Angello tweeted that he was doing a Gorillaz remix at the same time as Alex Metric and Yuksek tweeted about doing one, but it never came out. But it presumably exists.
- the Tenkah Remix, despite being widely circulated, is almost certainly completely unofficial and does not use official remix parts.
- Also Mixmag claimed the Beastie Boys were remixing Stylo, but this may have been a joke or false rumour, as nothing more was said about it.


Superfast Jellyfish

Superfast Jellyfish (Mighty Mouse Remix)
Status: Official
Released: Gorillaz youtube, Superfast Jellyfish Remixes promo, also given away as free mp3 from NME.com, also on the Disco Circus Vol.2 Mighty Mouse remix album

Notes:
Superfast Jellyfish (Aaron LaCrate Remix)
Status: Not approved

Superfast Jellyfish (Don Diablo Remix)
Status: Not approved
Released: As an mp3
Notes:
Superfast Jellyfish (Trashcan DJs Remix)
Status: Not approved
Released: As an mp3
Notes:
Superfast Jellyfish (SBTRKT Remix)
Status: Not approved
Released: As an mp3 / radio play
Notes: A bit of confusion online as to whether this is the instrumental of the remix or the remix. As far as I can tell, pretty much every source (whether they say they have the remix or the remix instrumental) has the track as above, i.e., no vocals. It could be that SBTRKT only released the instrumental version of the remix in the end. Maybe when it didn't get approval (but that's just speculation on my part). Or it could be that his remix just had no vocals, and some people labelled it the instrumental assuming there was one with vocals on. Either way, without any vocals, it's a bit like Film Music (Mode Remix), i.e. you're left struggling to hear much resemblance to the original track.
Superfast Jellyfish (The Last Skeptik Remix)
Status: Not approved
Released: As an mp3 / radio play
Notes: Released along with the On Melancholy Hill remix by The Last Skeptik. i.e. may have been done after the main batch of Superfast Jellyfish remixes.

Notes: DJ Harry Love also stated that the full version of the remix has a rapper on it, though he didn't state which one. He also called the released version a 'demo', implying it wasn't ever quite finished to his satisfaction (though it sounds complete / polished enough).

Notes:


NB Also for Doncamatic, the original single tracklisting contained a 'Nero Remix' but this was never mentioned elsewhere.

As far as I know / can tell, that's just a fanmade thing, not commissioned.

I think that would be quite difficult, I wonder how many Stylo fan made remixes you would find on youtube for example.. dozens at least. Too many to really list. Also, almost all of low quality and uninteresting (though, I admit there can be the occasional gem).

Not official. I asked the creator about it on youtube.

Thanks for this helpful list.

oh well, personally I love the Tenka remix of Stylo and that's unofficial.

I listened to that Dubstep remix of Rhinestone Eyes last night. Not bad.

A few changes.

1) Changed info for Tong & Rogers mix of Stylo. The version of the mix on the Wonderland album does appear to be the full version (contrary to what I said previously) and it does feature all the parts that were in the earlier, shorter version played on radio. However, it is still mixed a bit at the end in particular, as it appears on a continuous mix album.

2) The AN21 & Max Vangeli remix of On Melancholy Hill was recently uploaded to Youtube, so it has been given the official nod of approval.

3) Moved the DJ Steve Angello remix of Stylo into the 'notes' section, seeing as it hasn't been released. But it does presumably exist...
