  1. Star 69 (Thomas Gold Remix) by Fatboy Slim


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    New remixes of old dance and electronic tracks are my cup of tea! And when I heard about this new remix of Star 69 by Fatboy Slim I was first in line to check it out and I have to say it’s pretty darn good. Love the long breakdowns and big ass beats withe the lyrics that we have come to love from the original Star 69 track! What The Fuck! This new remix came out last year for the 10th anniversary of the original release of Star 69 and was originally on the Fatboy Slim album Halfway Between The Gutter And The Stars. Timo Maas had had remixed Star 69 in 2000 as part of the single along with DJ Gotfather and X-Press 2 and I think this new Thomas Gold Remix is just as good if not better. The Timo Maas remix still hold up today and is worth checking out. This new remix is certainly in the style of what’s being played in the clubs today and it’s a fusion of house and electro beats. I

    I’m sure this one of those cuts that is definitely one that is definitely on heavy rotation. More updated Fatboy Slim remixes please?

  2. Tubular Bells/Pretty Boys And Pretty Girls (Regan’s House Medley) by Book Of Love


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    14+ Minutes of electronic synth dance pop pleasure! This Book Of Love classic takes on their own cover of the Mike Oldfield classic Tubular Bells and mashes it with their own song Pretty Boys And Pretty Girls into an 80s classic underground synth dance bomb. Boy this version is so good! Boy not their hit Boy even though that is a classic as Book Of Love were one of the most underrated acts in the late 80s. I heard their music on Live 105 numerous times and that is how I discovered this excellent New York act. They were signed to Sire records along with Depeche Mode of course and Erasure, Madonna and The Ramones and more!

    Tubular Bells and Pretty Boys and Pretty Girls is off of Book Of Love’s excellent 1988 album Lullaby and it was such a great idea to mash up the two tracks together for this excellent 12″ version. This version just goes on and on going in and out of each of the two songs with added horror sounding special effects to remind you of where the original Mike Oldfield version came from the film The Exorcist.

    If you don’t know anything about Book Of Love you’ve probably heard of their music in a film or two. One of their songs Modigliani (Lost In Your Eyes) was featured in the film and soundtrack to Planes, Trains And Automobiles. Later Sunny Day was featured in The Silence Of The Lambs. Unfortunately though Book Of Love did not last too long. In the early 90s they released two no very successful albums Candy Carol and LoveBubble then they vanished into thin air until their greatest hits were released in 2001 with a collection of new remixes of their first hit song, Boy! 5 years later Boy was remixed again by DJ Irene for the Future Retro compilation of excellent remixes of 80s hits!. It’s rare but I prefer the original when it comes to Boy but the remixes are certainly fun to hear.

  3. North Shore (Idjut Boys Mix) by Cantoma


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    If you are at all into beautiful, sexy downtempo and chill out music then Cantoma is your cup of tea. I first got into Cantoma‘s music when I heard his track Moonsmith off of the Cantoma self titled album way back 6 or so years ago and immediately fell in love. I’m sure if at all you like Thievery Corporation then you will certainly like Cantoma’s music. Finally Out Of Town came out last year and it was basically more of the sexy downtempo music with a elements of world beats thrown in for good taste that I had come to know from Cantoma. It’s just good music that you can put on and chill to in the background. Read a book, sip a glass of wine? Tasty!

    North Shore is one of the cooler cuts off of Out Of Town and I was happy to have discovered this Idjut Boys remix of it. The Idjut Boys elevate the song by increasing the BPMs a bit and giving it a somewhat discoish vibe to it that I’m digging! The vocals are still there but it’s been given also the dreaminess quality has been elevated a bit. It’s nice and I hope you enjoy it!

  4. Taste So Good by File 13


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    File 13′s Tastes So Good was one of my favorite electro electronic freestyle dance tracks from the mid 80s. This track has phone sex samples from those naughty 976 sex lines in the 80s. This song if you haven’t heard it is a pretty rare cut that’s in my top 100 dance tracks of all time. It’s totally original and i used to hear this on the radio here in the San Francisco Bay Area on Live 105. No one does music like this at least I have not heard anything. No albums or any singles exist of any File 13 material anywhere. Most likely they are all on 12″ used shops but either way this song is certainly worth noting here at DestroyRockAndRoll.com in case those of you don’t know it it’s certainly worth discovering.

    If you are looking for more music like File 13s Taste So Good then you definitely have to check out Street Jams Volumes 1 – 3 as they are chock full of electro and freestyle classic dance music. Unfortunately they are not available as a download from iTunes or Amazon but links to Amazon for the actual CDs are below.

  5. CFCF Covers Ryuichi Sakamoto With Forbidden Colours


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Forbidden Colours is one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever recorded. It was originally released back in 1983 and was a collaboration between Ryuichi Sakamoto and David Sylvian (from the band Japan) which was also part of the soundtrack to the film Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence starring David Bowie.

    So CFCF has taken that most beautiful classical and electronic new age recording by Ryuichi Sakamoto and David Sylvian and elevated it for todays ears and it works darn good. I love it. CFCF aka Mike Silver actually even sings on this recording which still makes it even better. It’s a very soft spoken quiet kind of speaking that even sounds like the original. Check out both the original and the remake below.

    I’ve been digging CFCF for quite sometime now. I was first introduced to his sound with some remixes he did for Sallly Shapiro later found his albums and fell in love with Big Love the Fleetwood Mac cover (which is awesome) and later I came across this recording which I love. I

    I can’t wait to hear more from CFCF and I can only hope that he’s working on some more excellent cuts like what he’s released so far!

  6. Way Back Home (Club Version Featuring Duane Harden) by Bag Raiders


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I first heard the Bag Raiders Way Back Home track just a couple of weeks ago but it wasn’t the original version sung by the band members that I heard it was the club version with Duane Harden. I immediately fell in love with it and had to check out more versions. I had known about Bag Raiders but after I heard Way Back Home I came to love Bag Raiders more. The original version of Way Back Home is very reminiscent of gothic sounding synth pop from the 80s it totally reminds of a song from that era. The Duane Harden version is upbeat, bouncy and reminds of piano house from the mid 90s! It’s awesome!

    Those of you that don’t know Duane Harden well if you know this little song that dates back to 1998 called U Don’t Know Me by Armand Van Helden featuring Duane Harden then you’ll know Duane Harden. He’s done countless other songs since then, mostly house, deep house and soulful house but this collaboration with Bag Raiders is one of the most unique things he’s done to date in my opinion. I love it!

    And the track listing for the Bag Raiders self titled album is as follows. Loads of tasty new wavy synth pop and dance treats that are seriouisly worth owning if you are at all into bands like Empire Of The Sun or Cut Copy and the like then you will certainly love these songs. Preview each track below and make sure you check out Shooting Stars as it’s one of my faves next to Way Back Home! There are some really cool remixes of Shooting Stars that should be noted as well.

    1. “Castles in the Air”
    2. “Sunlight”
    3. “Shooting Stars”
    4. “So Demanding”

  8. Moodswings Covers Donna Summer Covers Jon & Vangelis With State Of Independence


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Boy! It was only after 15 years or so that I discovered that State Of Independence was originally remade by Donna Summer in 1982 a year after Jon & Vangelis released it off of their The Friends Of Mr. Cairo album from 1981. I have to say that the first time I heard State of Independence was the Moodswings version featuring the great Chrissie Hynde from The Pretenders on vocals. But I do have to say the version Donna Summer recorded a year after the Jon & Vangelis version are so similar. Very kind of minimal with a very mellow bounce beat added in with the vocals. Kind of doesn’t go anywhere for me and I’m glad it was remade and covered in the 90s. Check them both out below.

    Once you get to the Moodswings cover and the Murk remix of State Of Independence from 1996 then you get to some more excitement. The Moodswings trip hop version of State Of Independence has that euphoric, dream like quality with excellent haunting vocals from Chrissie Hynde then you get a total 360 degree turn around for the Donna Summer Murk Remix of State Of Independence. There are many more remixes on the single for Donna Summers State of Independence from 1996 but the Murk Remix is the best. A tad bit outdated today but still fun to check out.

  9. Hot Room (Tiga Remix) by Linda Lamb


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This is quite the interesting electro track for me. It kind of sounds like this long lost country song or an Asian singer singing a country song with an electronic production. It’s unique in a strange way and I didn’t really get it or let alone like it until I heard of the excellent Tiga remix. This song was released in 2002 from the oh so cool label International Deejay Gigolo’s along with their legendary complilations, International Deejay Gigolos Compilation 5 and it’s countless cool electroclash tracks. I like the Tiga remix because he basically amps up the electronic production to a nice midtempo beat. It’s something you can actually dance to now whereas the original was a bit odd. Whatcha think? The original version of Hot Room came out at the height of the electroclash movement which is now almost 10 years old. Boy time sure flys by!

    If you’re not familiar with Linda Lamb check out some of her work with one of my favorite acts, Vitalic on a track called Bells. This is the Linda Lamb I really love. Right? It’s darn rocking cool!

  10. Wherever We Are (Grum Remix) by Human Life


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I’ve been listening to a lot of 80s inspired or influenced electronic, pop, dance, synth influenced music lately and Human Life’s Wherever We Are are one of the acts that I’ve been listening to quite a bit. This feel good, happy song from the Los Angeles based act Human Life is just that and more especially if you check out all of the fun remixes of this hit song Wherever We Are. The band takes their influences heavily from catchy 80s music of the synth pop bands that were aplenty then. They then throw in stabs of early chicago house music and an added French electro inspired sound to create their own original sunshiney very LA feel to the music. I’m digging this and I can only wait to hear more from Human Life.

    My favorite remix is the Grum remix which is below. Check it out and check out the other remixes as well as they certainly are worth it and the original is still darn good for more poppier feel and sound. If you can also get your hands on Italo Crimewave you should!

  11. New Years Dub by Musique Vs U2


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Ten years ago there was so much really excellent electronic music being released. So much creativity was around which included tons of releases like this track by Musique called New Years Dub which is basically a sampling New Years Day by U2. Apparently the band U2 was so into this cut by Musique that they approved this themselves and it turned out such a great dance hit for Musique. This New Years Dub track features a sample of The Edge’s famous guitar work as heard on the popular U2 track New Years Day. In fact this track basically sounds like a pretty darn good remix of New Years Day by U2. The single release also contains remixes by Hybrid and Mauro Picotto those of you are interested in checking those out. If you’re into U2 and also are into remixes, electronic music then this is perfect you will like this track. I do and I’m sure if you’re reading DestroyRockAndRoll.com then you will too.

  12. Batman (Twist!) by Lemon


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    The Batman TV Theme is one of my all time favorite TV show themes and when I heard this remake by Lemon I was quickly hooked. Lemon have taken the original Batman TV theme and given it the electronic loungy treatment with a beefier bassier sound. It’s basically a remix here and I love it. If you like anything from bands like Ursula 1000, Fantastic Plastic Machine, Nicola Conte, Montefiori Cocktail, Chris Joss and Arling & Cameron you will dig their sound. And besides this is a really cool remake of a very kitschy, campy TV show theme but you have the kitsch and camp multiplied by 1000!

    This Batman (Twist!) track is off of Lemon’s With A Twist album which is full of those loungy, go-go, 60s inspired fun, playful jazzy electronic tunes. One of my other favorites from With A Twist is Let’s Go! BIKINI. It’s one of those quirky, playful lo-fi electronic tracks very reminiscent to Perry & Kingsley with the added modern electronic beefiness of today. It’s so much fun! You also have a very fun sample from The Surfari’s Wipe Out track added in as a bonus! So you kind of get how fun this album is!

    I decided to include David McCallum’s version below as the original and not the very original by Neal Hefti that was used on the TV show open for the Batman 1960s TV show. The original certainly has a lot of spy TV show music elements with the surf guitar music very much inspired by bands like The Ventures who covered the Batman TV show theme too and The Marketts who also did a cover of the Batman TV show theme. David McCallum’s version is off a very excellent CD series called Ultra Lounge and this version of Batman Theme is taken off the the amazing CD called Ultra-Lounge, Vol. 13: TV Town which is chock full of 60s TV show themes including The Munsters Theme, The Fugitive Theme, The Man From U.N.C.L.E./The Spies, The Mod Squad Theme and many more.

  13. Top Ten Best Underground Disco Songs Ever!!!


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Top Ten Best Underground Disco Songs Ever!!!

    Underground disco is where it’s at! I love disco music but I love stuff that’s more underground than your typical disco song that everyone knows of. These aren’t songs like I Will Survive, YMCA, That’s The Way (I Like It) or Staying Alive. A lot of these underground disco songs on this Top Ten Best Underground Disco Songs Ever list are stuff that barely made it to the top of the charts. Ok maybe Cerrone did but that’s why I have put them at the very bottom.

    Love In C Minor is one of my all time favorite disco songs but you know you can’t find those songs on any American released disco compilations. Nada so I figured it belongs on this list. I also added Boney M, the Frank Farian produced act who’s bigger hits were Ma Baker, Daddy Cool and Rasputin had to be included on here with ther small hit Gotta Go Home which was recently sampled by Duck Sauce for their song Barbra Streisand. If you haven’t heard that then you definitely need to check it out because it’s basically Boney M’s Gotta Go Home beefed up with a couple of vocal stabs thrown in that repeats Barbra Streisand.

    Donna McGhee’s LoveBug was recently sampled by Amplified Orchestra for their awesome nu disco cut I Want You so I had to include Donna McGhee’s LoveBug as it’s excellent on it’s own and as sampled by Amplified Disco. Check out both for sure.

    I’m really more into the European sound of disco music so I had to include Azoto. They had a bigger hit with San Salvador but I think Soft Emotion is just as good if not better than San Salvador. It’s one of those very groovy, sexy euro sounding cuts that once you listen to you’ll want to have on repeat! It’s quite cool! Whatcha think? Keep in mind the first 9 tracks are not in order …

    2. Minor Disco (Re-Edit) by Ross Carnegie & Co

  14. Comment Te Dire Adieu by Jimmy Somerville Feat. June Miles Kingston


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This very very famous French song originally by Francoise Hardy has been remade so many times by countless musicians. Comment Te Dire Adieu is one of my all time favorite songs and I’m always open to new versions of it. Check out the Blank & Jones version here on DestroyRockAndRoll.com. One of my favorites is this one from former Bronski Beat singer, Jimmy Somerville which was released in 1989 from his solo CD Read My Lips. Read My Lips also had another cover called You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real) the Sylvester disco classic but that’s another story. Read My Lips was Jimmy’s first solo CD and it’s a very nice one. It’s chock full of very dancey pre-house, synth pop.

    I discovered this cover on Jimmy’s greatest hits album in ’91 and later I had to obtain the Read My Lips CD that the song is from. It’s quite a fun pre-house synthy dance pop hit with guest vocalist June Miles Kingston. This is the type of hi-nrg dance pop music that was playing at all the clubs when this came out. If you haven’t heard this then it’s worth checking this out along with

  15. West End Girls (Club Mix) by James Talk & Ridney

    Ok whatever you say and I don’t really care what you say I am the worlds biggest Pet Shop Boys fan. Since I heard West End Girls in 1985 I was hooked. The guys are very talented at what they do and they have released some of best music in the last almost 30 years. So I love the Pet Shop Boys. I also love any remixes or remakes of their music that I hear.

    So I ran across this wonderful house bordering on trance remake of their hit West End Girls by James Talk & Ridney and I love what I hear. These guys are great and they keep collaborating on many different cuts and I’m hooked at what they release. Check out both the original Pet Shop Boys version and the James Talk & Ridney versions below.

  16. Don’t Turn The Lights On (Aeroplane Remix) by Chromeo


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Chromeo keep pushing the 80s inspired grooves with their single Don’t Turn The Light’s On off of their latest album Business Casual a truly fun 80s style album with touches of disco, funk and synth grooves. It’s a fun album and keeps pushing them forward now with their third great album. Well my favorite remix of Don’t Turn The Lights On is one by Aeroplane where the beats are a little more spacey, nu disco inspired similar to all of Aeroplane’s music. It’s still keeps the pace of the original version as this remix is not the remix to get your club groove on with. It’s got a more dreamy spacey laidback feel to it. I dig this nu disco sound and I’m sure you will too!

    If you haven’t heard of this great remix you should check it out below. You should also check out more music by Chromeo and Aerooplane here on DestroyRockAndRoll.com!

  17. Can You Feel The Passion (Palladium Mix) by Blue Pearl


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    What happened to Blue Pearl? Can You Feel The Passion (Palladium Mix) was one of those electronic techno house tracks that I probably overplayed back in the early 90s. It was on a compilation called Rave ‘Til Dawn and just had really nice bass to blast from your car. I was only 21! Electronic and techno house music was booming from all over the place and I was very happy! So much cool music was being released and this was one them. The song is dark, sexy with lots of moaning and groaning and it has that classic early 90s piano house touch thrown in. It was one of those tracks that combined a lot of rock and guitar elements with the electronic and techno beats with the piano house. So it was quite unique!

    Can You Feel The Passion and Naked In The Rain were the only two hits released by Blue Pearl and once those came out they vanished and never to be heard from again. Although Naked In The Rain has been rereleased with new remixes several times since then I still think their bigger cooler hit was Can You Feel The Passion! What do you think? Below you will find the US Remix version and the Palladium Mix which was on the Rave ‘Til Dawn compilation.

  18. Happy Together (Wade Nichols aka Todd Terje Edit) by The Turtles


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Happy Together by The Turtles is one of my favorite 60s songs. I think it’s one of those rare songs that still sounds quite original on it’s own. I was looking forward to this reedit of the original Happy Together by Wade Nichols aka Todd Terje. Once I heard it I knew it was pretty much the same in sound but it does have a bouncier beat to it making it a perfect example of an early 70s disco treatment of a 60s song.

    Tron Legacy is the excellent soundtrack from Daft Punk to an ok movie with awesome special effects. But listening to the soundtrack at home is not so much fun. It’s mostly score so when was the last time you sat down and listened to a movie score? I don’t do it often. It’s mostly ambient with some pretty big beats thrown in. I’m glad I experienced the film Tron Legacy and it’s amazing soundtrack it in the theater though as it was nice and had thunderous quality to it. My favorite cut off the original soundtrack is Castor but the damn thing is so short so I have it on repeat several times and it plays over and over again. I imagined the music would be beefed up a bit when I first got the soundtrack and finally I read of a remix album and I was quite happy when that happened.

    Finally when I got Tron Legacy Reconfigured  – the remixes from the Tron Legacy soundtrack I realized this should have been accompanied with the soundtrack all along! This is the real electronic dance counterpart to the actual soundtrack score. Well better late than never right?

    There are some amazing remixes on this remixes version of the Tron Legacy Soundtrack and my favorite is the the mostly ambient Arena track remixed by The Japanese Popstars. Links below. Other remixers on the Tron Legacy Reconfigured compilation include The Teddybears, Pretty Lights, Sander Kleinenberg, Avicii, Photek, Paul Oakenfold, Com Truise, Boys Noise, Kaskade, Ki: Theory, Moby, The Crystal Method The Glitch Mob and M83 with Big Black Delta. It’s a who’s who of the electronic industry with remixers from today and yesterday. I highly recommend this collection so you should go to your favorite store and download the whole collection.

  21. Benny Berigan Covers The John Buzon Trio With Caravan


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This is a really fun electro-swing version of the old John Buzon Trio version of Caravan by Benny Berigan. This is Benny Berigan from now and not the Benny Berigan that died in 1942 who also performed the recording. The original version of Caravan was written by Juan Tizol and sometimes also credited to Irving Mills but he’s only credited for the vocal versions. Countless jazz musicians and later exotica musicians have covered or remade Caravan. It’s been sampled and remixed throughout the years. My favorite version so far is the exotica version by The John Buzon Trio until I discovered the Benny Berigan version on an electro-swing compilation.

    There’s also a very nice remixed version of The John Buzon Trio exotica version of Caravan remixed by Eat Static which I think is still excellent since it’s been 10+ years since that remix came out. I’m glad to have discovered this Eat Static Remix. It’s off an excellent compilation that is out of print called Electro Lounge – Electronic Excursions In Hi-Fi Stereo. Loads of great old jazz and exotica recordings that are excellently remixed. Most are still fresh today. Remixes included on this collection are Q-Burns Abstract Message Remixing Yma Sumac, Omni Trio remixing John Barry, Wagon Christ remixing April Stevens, Utah Saints remixing King Curtis and many more. I love it!

    The Benny Berigan version is from an ep that’s available called the Caravan Adaptation EP which also has another couple of great electro-swing tracks on it including one called Snake Charmer.

  22. Crystalised (Rory Phillips Remix) by The XX


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This is a good example of a very bland boring alternative rock song that has been given LIFE by a really cool remix treatment by Rory Phillips! I’m so glad that the band The XX commissioned this remix by Rory Phillips as I really did not like the original.  There’s hardly any music on the original version of this song except for the bland singing. Ok the music does kick in a bit halfway through but then it fizzles out again. Sorry guys it’s needing something and luckily this Rory Phillips remix does wonders to it. The remix has a synthy, bouncy disco beat added to the very flat singing by the two members of The XX which actually compliment together quite well. Up until I heard this remix that I started liking the original version of  Crystalised. I can always say that remixes do what videos did to me when music videos were popular. Remixes turn me on to music that normally I wouldn’t listen to. Now I’m a fan of The XX like everyone else! Check out both original and remixed version below.
