  1. Radio (Shinichi Osawa Remix) by Felix da Housecat

    This is one hell of a remix by Shinichi Osawa. WOW! I can’t say enough about this remix – it’s awesome! The original is a pretty slow track from the album Virgo Blaktro & the Movie Disco and the remix is off of the Radio single.

    Prior to hearing this remix of Radio I had not heard of Shinichi Osawa. I love it and I’m curious to know what else he has done or remixed. He’s got a huge list of remixes for such artists as Boys Noize, Digitalism, Alex Gopher and Christopher Just. All roads lead me to Mondo Grosso though the Japanese electronic house/jazz act of the latter 90s early 2000s.

    I’m definitely interested in exploring the Shinichi Osawa’s sound more though as I truly dig it. What do you think of the remix compared to the original?

  2. Peter Gunn (Turntable Detective) by The Killergroove Formula

    I’ve always loved Henry Mancini. His music is timeless and it’s got a hip factor to it in a cheesy way. I often seek out remakes of Mancini’s works and this one especially caught my ear.

    I got it off of the compilation Lounge Records Sampler, Vol. 2 – Past, Present & Future. It’s a decent compilation with the stand out cut being the Peter Gunn track by The Killergroove Formula. There’s also a remix by Fort Knox Five of Are You Talking To Me??? by Torpedo Boyz, Flight Over Rio by Timax and a cover (I like covers if you haven’t guessed already) of Harvest For The World by Seductive Souls which is a cover of the Isley Brothers original.

    This remake or cover is quite good if not better than the original. It’s fast and quite upbeat with a quirky retro sounding electronic dance beat. What do you think? The original is still quite good but this is great too.

  3. Europa And The Pirate Twins by Sondre Lerche

    I love the original of Europa And The Pirate Twins by Thomas Dolby. Even more than his bigger hit She Blinded Me With Science which as a kid I despised. It absolutely drove me crazy! But Europa And The Pirate Twins was awesome. Perfect synth Euro pop!

    The original Europa And The Pirate Twins is off of the album The Golden Age Of Wireless album that also included the song She Blinded Me With Science. An awesome 80s classic worth owning if you don’t.

    I do like this version by Sondre Lerche. It’s updated nicely but still doesn’t stand up to the original by Thomas Dolby. What do you think?

    It’s on the single to Say It All which you can order from Amazon.

  4. Everybody Wants To Rule The World (Open Air Remix) by Chosen Few Vs. Tears For Fears

    I love this! The old tired Tears For Fears track that’s been so overplayed gets the awesome remix treatment. It’s not anything cutting edge here just straight on club beats and very nice, fast and energetic. It’s the kind of track you probably would be hearing in a mix that you’ve been dancing to for quite a while.

    I found this remix on a compilation called Stonewall which is a pretty generic mix of music pop dance music that was not excellent but did the job of serving up tasty pop, dance, remix club hits.

    But the single is available if you can find it somewhere. I’m looking myself since the version of this track I have below at the link is taken from (obviously) a mix CD so it’s not the entire track but you’ll still get the idea. Check it out and compare it to the original.

  5. Sex Dwarf by Dirty Sanchez


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Ok! Sex Dwarf is already a pretty sleazy track by Soft Cell. Taken off of their masterpiece first release Non Stop Erotic Cabaret that contained the worldwide new wave hit Tainted Love, Sex Dwarf was not really really a hit for them. It wasn’t even released as a single but it made some waves in the late 80s and early 90s on Modern Rock and College radio stations. That is when I first heard the Soft Cell version of Sex Dwarf. I quickly fell in love with the song.

    Now we have a remake or cover shall we say by Dirty Sanchez that takes the original Sex Dwarf by Soft Cell and they add their signature electrosexual sleazy naughty sound to it. The Dirty Sanchez version comes off of their Really Rich Italian Satanists ep of four songs that includes the underground sleazier hit Fucking On The Dancefloor. You got to check out Dirty Sanchez if you haven’t already. If you are at all into electro or anything that sounds a bit 80s or if you are into RuPaul then Dirty Sanchez is up your alley.

    I do like the original Sex Dwarf as it’s much superior but I could really see the Dirty Sanchez version at some underground New York or San Francisco club.

    Lead singer Jackie Beat has been around for quite sometime now. Even appeared on the Wigstock Soundtrack.

  6. Champagne by Motorfunk

    I absolutely love this track. It’s from a not very well known act from the very late 90s and early this decade called Motorfunk. They might be French but I could be wrong probably from the UK.

    I found this cut off of The Dirty House Session mixed CD by Groove Armada. It’s a free disc that came with my favorite magazine of the mid to late 90s called Muzik. Lot’s of great reviews and features of awesome electronic and dance music. The magazine folded around 2003 or so but this mix is one of their great mixes that came with the magazine. I have several of the mixes and I do enjoy listening to them still every once in a while.

    The track Champagne is basically sampling the Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King track Love Come Down. You kind of get that because it’s called Champagne. I kind had to listen twice to figure it out at first. I just didn’t know where the track from but I put two and two together and voila it turned out to be Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King! I absolutely dig this track because Evelyn’s version is so early 80s funk dance but this version by Motorfunk is so fast and ready for todays clubs. Even though it’s several years old now it’s still sounds fresh! I can still hear it at any hopping club.

    Check out the video with Evelyn singing Love Come Down. I absolutely love her hair. Don’t you think?

    And a live version which I think it’s from Solid Gold?? Maybe?
