  1. RuPaul Covers Depeche Mode With People Are People


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Since Depeche Mode came out with an amazing collection of remixes called Depeche Mode – Remixes 2: 81-11 I just had to share another Depeche Mode cover here and figured this remake of People Are People by RuPaul for the Depeche Mode 80s classic that got me introduced to the band was the one to put up. People are People is one of the rare songs that still sounds good today. Although People Are People is one of their more poppier songs I still love it and always seek out any remixes or remakes of this song. Unfortunately though I have not heard of any official remixes from Depeche Mode themselves and it’s rarely covered too. I hope when Depeche Mode release Remixes 3 they will actually finally remix this song as it deserves it! Yes?

    But then again there’s this pretty darn good club/house remake by RuPaul! RuPaul you say? Well I guess she’s been making music since the mid 90s! This came out in 2005 but I somehow missed it when it came out but later discovered it somehow when I was searching for People Are People. The People Are People (Giuseppe D’s Rutroactive Club Mix) by RuPaul even contains samples of the machine sound effects from the original Depeche Mode version of People Are People. So I give RuPaul some credit for doing this. The original Depeche Mode versions of People Are People is still very special place in my heart. I was a very young teen and discovered this greatest new band Depeche Mode that produced this awesome electronic/synth pop dance music and since then I’ve been hooked on to the sounds of Depeche Mode. But I’m always looking for new versions of old songs and this just does it for me. The original version of People Are People is available on People Are People the album from Depeche Mode and also on Some Great Reward as well as their countless Greatest Hits albums. RuPaul’s version is off of People Are People the single with countless remixes of People Are People, on RuPaul Red Hot and RuPaul ReWorked. Check them out when you get a moment and discover new music!

    Those of you that know anything about Mylo will know where the name of this website comes from. One of my favorite albums from the 2000′s and perhaps for the last 20 years is the album Destroy Rock And Roll byMylo. Destroy Rock And Roll was chock full of some of the best dance music around. Included excellent cuts like Destroy Rock And RollDrop The PressureMuscle CarsMuscle Car Reform RepriseIn My Arms,Valley Of The DollsParis Four HundredOtto’s Journey and more. The whole album was totally listenable and it still sounds fresh today. Well Mylo and his label Breastfed Records also released other artists likeLinus LovesRadio SlaveRan Shani and Flat Pack which released this just OK remake of a classic Guns N’ Roses classic songs Sweet Child O’ Mine by Flat Pack. I was very excited to hear this remake when it first came out in 2005 but it just wasn’t strong. Fortunately though it’s saved by the Mylo Remix which is here. What do you think? Good, bad?  If you don’t like it and don’t know anything about Mylo then head over here and check out some awesome Mylo cuts now and preview Destroy Rock And Roll!

  3. 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.

    Enjoy!

  4. Swimming Places (Sabaudia Gabin Remix) by Julien Jabre


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Swimming Places was a huge club hit back in 2005 for Julien Jabre. It’s the perfect club house cut with slight touches of early 70s disco sounds. It’s minimal but cool, it’s mellow but groovy it’s perfect. Plus it’s one of those tracks that goes on and on for quite a long time. The original clocks in at almost 11 minutes! It’s classic and it’s only 5+ years old. The single was released with several remixes which pretty darn good. There were remixes by Jerome Sydenham and Peter Heller which were good but did not compare to the masterful original. I loved it. It’s the perfect track to get you into and uplifting mood. It’s not too hard!

    2 years later a new batch of remixes came out because the original Swimming Places by Julien Jabre was such a hit and this time I paid more attention because the Sabaudia Gabin Remix of Swimming Places was just as good if not better than the original! The original Swimming Places has a very island feel to it which should be mentioned but this remix by Sabaudia Gabin elevates the island feel. It’s slightly more upbeat than the original and adds a sort of island jazz house groove to it. It’s cool. Still not a hard dance club cut but it’s got quite a nice chill house groove to it!

    Enjoy both below!

  5. Xlover Covers Prince With Darling Nikki!


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    A sexy sleazed up electro synth version of Prince’s sexy, orgasmic ballad from Purple Rain? Yes that’s what Xlover have done to remake this classic Prince song from the cool soundtrack to the film Purple Rain. Ok the singing is a bit off but hey it’s a fun project off of the oh so cool International Deejay Gigolo Records from Berlin, DJ Hell’s label with the Amanda Lepore logo. Ok that’s a bit of old news but I’ve been a big fan of International Deejay Gigolo Records. Just recently they released CD Twelve from the long running series of cool electro, dance, punk, new wave, synth based tracks from the label. This collection of songs certainly recommended if you are into this type of music as it contains cool remixes of songs including A Fifth Of Beethoven (Soulwax Remix) by Walter Murphy. Yes the classic disco track from Saturday Night Fever and other remixes like Peaches Lose You remixed by DJ Hell.

    Anyway back to Xlover and Darling Nikki … Darling Nikki is off of the Xlover album Pleasure & Romance and the album is chock full of sleazy, sexy dark electro vox cuts. Check out more Xlover cuts here.

  6. Black And White Town by Doves Samples (Love Is Like A) Heatwave


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This is one of those rare Brit rock tracks that I really dig. It samples one of my favorite recordings of all time (Love Is Like A) Heatwave by Martha Reeves & The Vandellas. That song goes down as one of my all time top 25 tracks and Black And White Town does an awesome job of sampling the part of Heatwave best. I’m not much a fan of Doves but after I heard of this I was sure enough checking out more from the band. Enjoy both Doves and Martha & The Vandellas tracks below.

  7. I’ve Got My Love To Keep Me Warm (Stuhr Remix) by Kay Star


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Kay Starr’s version of I’ve Got My Love To Keep Me Warm is my favorite of that song. When I heard of the remix I even loved it more. It’s been given the upbeat treatment and it’s quite fun. The original is more mellow and slightly sexy with Kay’s beautiful vocals. The remixer on this track is STUHR who I know very little about but damn he did a great job at remixing this track and bringing it to the sound of now. Well the remix is about 5 years old now but still it sounds fresh and it’s one of my all time favorite Christmas songs remixed. From the album Christmas Remixed from Six Degrees Records. Volume 2 available as well and both albums are highly recommended if you are tired of the traditional Christmas music and want something a little more unique to impress your friends and family during the holidays.

  8. DJ Sneak Samples Duran Duran’s Wild Boys On Baby Steps


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Sampling Duran Duran on Baby Steps works excellently here. The opening beats to Duran Duran’s classic 80s new wave song Wild Boys is sampled on Baby Steps by DJ Sneak a full on club house track. The samples from D2s song starts Baby Steps off then ventures into a very 90s flavored house tune with full of energy. The samples come back in during the extension of the track but basically DJ Sneak has used it to get Baby Steps off the ground. Check out both tracks below … The Wilder Than Wild Boys Extended Mix and the original album version of Baby Steps from DJ Sneak.

  9. A Bit Patchy by Switch


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This oversampled piece of music is a great obscure recording by the Michael Viner’s Incredible Bongo Band. It’s been used over and over again for one recording or another dating back to the 70s when it first came out. It’s a great funk underground classic that had a major resurgence back in the late 90s and early 2000s. The list of sampling is long vey long but until A Bit Patchy by Switch came out it was sampled in it’s bits and pieces. This A Bit Patchy incorporates the entire song into an original club tune using Apache cut by Michael Viner’s Incredible Bongo Band. The release has several remixes which you should check out here and one even from Eric Prydz but I still enjoy the original A Bit Patchy since it’s the closest to Apache but with the added club beat sounds of today. Actually this release is from 2005 but still sounds fresh now.

    Finding a remix of one of my favorite songs by INXS let alone one of my favorite songs of the 80s was a pretty cool thing and I love this remix/remake of the INXS song Original Sin by Kash.  Whos is Kash? I don’t really know but they’ve got a great bouncy club remake of this awesome new wave masterpiece. The song that put INXS on the map off of their first album has been given the remix treatment. The original version is off the INXS album The Swing from 1984.

    I love me some remakes and this one is awesome. It’s the classic downtempo/swing jazz classic by Mr. Scruff remade by the very cool and groovy The Quantic Soul Orchestra. I love it! It’s lively, danceable and has a very retro organ sound to it. Very similar to their sound which I truly love so this version rocks! Check them both out below at the link. This remake of Get A Move On by The Quantic Soul Orchestra is off of the Tru Thoughts Covers album that’s come out a couple of months back. If you like covers, remakes or remixes then this album is definitely worth it! It’s also on The Quantic Soul Orchestra album Pushin On.

    This remix to the very dark Let No Man Jack by DJ Hell is pretty darn cool. It’s slow, very bassy and hard. Almost to the point of a dark sleazy industrial cut from the electro godfather of International Deejay Gigolos record label owner. DJ Hell’s new album Teufelswerk has been out for quite a while now but it’s still has not grown on me. So wanted to go back in time and pull a cut from his last album NY Muscle which is a pretty darn cool album if you haven’t heard it yet. Check out both versions of Let No Man Jack below.

    Destroy-Rock-And-Roll-Remix-Blog-Pump-Up-The-Jam-The-Album-Technotronic

    This song takes me back to the late 80!

    Pump Up The Jam the original version which came out in 1998 was a early Belgian house club classic that actually played on the radio. It became a worldwide smash hit going all the way to the top of the pop charts. This new version a remix by D.O.N.S. which is actually several years old now is a fresh take on the original hit by Technotronic. It’s got a more modern beat to it and it’s more in line with the sound of the clubs now. I like it but there’s something about the original that still takes me back to the days of acid house, new beat and an awesome era in club music. Both worth owning. Check them out below.

    The original Pump Up The Jam is off of the Technotronic album of the same name.

    Destroy-Rock-And-Roll-Remix-Blog-The-Presets-Photo

    Girl And The Sea by the Presets from their Beams albums is such a mellow beautiful midtempo vocal track compared to the rest of the tracks on the Beam album. It’s one of those tracks that totally stands out from everything else and it’s the track you keep listening to. So when a remix comes along like this remix by Cut Copy it doesn’t really compare unfortunately. It’s a pretty darn good remix but if I had to choose between both versions I’d pick the original. What do you think?

    The remix is from The Presets Re-Sets album which is worth owning. Their are remixes by some awesome names like ascii.disko, Simian Mobile Disco, Digitalism and The Juan Maclean. So I highly recommend both the album Beams and Re-Sets for any electro, synth pop/dance lover. Listen to the tracks takes me back to when I was 15 years old in 1986! What a fun time!

    Louie Vega does a great cover of the disco classic Thousand Finger Man by Candido. Love this very Latin inspired track as was the original by Candido. This track comes right off the Elements Of Life “Extensions’ CD which I highly recommend for a bunch of other awesome tracks by Louie Vega all remixed. Sexy Latin inspired house music.

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


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    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.

    I love taking a punk rock song and remixing the hell out of it and make it a fucking cool awesome dance club song. Such is the example of this track by The Gossip. Playgroup who back in 2002 released a really awesome self titled album of electro funky dance pop. It’s a great album and worth checking out if you haven’t. I have the double CD version pictured below which you should def. own that has lots of great remixes.

    Playgroup actually did major wonders to this track – he (Trevor Jackson) has added a very early 90′s sound to the remix and It’s rocking. Well in a remix way. Check it out and let me know what you think? You like? Let me know

  20. Clair de Lune by Sebastien Tellier

    This is a pretty good reinterpretation of the the classical masterpiece by the French impressionist composer, Debussy. One of my favorite composers so it’s always nice to hear remakes of Debussy’s music. 10 years ago The Art Of Noise released an album called The Seduction Of Claude Debussy which was actually pretty good. So if you haven’t heard of it check it out especially if you are either a fan of Debussy or The Art Of Noise.

    This version comes from the Rouge Remixed album and it’s available for download from eMusic. Click the eMusic link above and search for Rouge Remixed.

  21. Just One Of Those Things (Brazilian Girls Remix) by Blossom Dearie


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Just One Of Those Things (Brazilian Girls Remix) by Blossom Dearie is off of the Verve Remixed 3 release. The series basically takes old jazz recordings and updates them with current musicians mostly producing electronic music. I love the series myself very much and all 4 albums now (there’s been 4 releases so far – the last came out last year) and 1 bonus album have some really great updates on them so they are certainly worth checking out if you haven’t. I have all four definitely and will continue as long as they continue – which is what I’m hoping for.

    This remix by Brazilian Girls is pretty intense – the original has the light jazz intensity but Brazilian Girls have taken the track and really sped it up. Which I really do like because you have a jazz track on SPEED. Love it. I’ve been a fan of Blossom Dearie since I first heard this track so I’ve been really enjoying her regular jazz music. But this is the track that got me introduced to her cute little jazzy voice.

    Check it out – see what you think of the two versions. Let me know what you think.

  22. Situation by Yaz


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This is such a classic track by Yaz and I really dig all the remixes that have surfaced of this track over the years. Brings back the great synth pop dance memories of the 80s. Well of course the original is still the best but the remixes are all really good too if not a little better than the original.

    You have the 1991 single that has a great dubby/bassy remix by Youth. Then for the greatest hits package it was remixed by Club 69 which is actually not one of my favorite mixes of Situation. Then it was remixed for the Future Retro compilation by Richard X which is actually one of my favorites. It kept the original sounds as much as possible but Richard X increased the speed a bit so it’s quite nice and upbeat. Very electronic. Well the original was quite electronic which was perfect on it’s own but this Richard X version is something else.

    The Club 69 version has been housed up too much and stripped away from the synth pop sound which turns me off. Don’t get me wrong I do love Club 69 and his music and remixes but this one is just not the strongest. Sounds a bit tired as well. It’s the usual Club 69 house sound that you’ve probably heard countless times.

    The Don’t Go/Situation single from 1999 also contains the Richard Humpty Vission remix too but just was actually worse than the Club 69 remix. There’s also a one version remixed by Dave Ralph. Again sort of boring and tired.

    We have the below four. What do you think? Which is your favorite? Feel free to leave your comments.

  23. Mr Brightside (Jacques Lu Cont’s Thin White Duke Mix) by The Killers

    I do like The Killers – well when they are remixed. I don’t hear everything of their remixed but when I find out that there’s a remix for a song then I make sure I snatch it up because I know they will be great. Especially since this is remixed by Stuart Price aka Jacques Lu Cont aka Thin White Duke. I like his remix style very much and his producing style is great as well. Madonna’s Confessions On A Dancefloor and remixes of that album were cool and of course who can forget the Les Rhythmes Digitales. So Stuart Price is in top form for this remix and this remix has so much fun energy and great singing from The Killers frontman. It’s definitely worth hearing owning. Check it out and compare it to the original. I think the remix is far superior! Don’t you?

  24. Destroy Rock And Roll (Tom Neville Remix) by Mylo

    I figured my first post on Destroy Rock and Roll should be Destroy Rock and Roll – the Tom Neville Remix. I do like the original off of the Destroy Rock and Roll album by Mylo and it’s perfect! That album is one of my all time favorite albums from this decade if not forever. It’s perfection!

    This remix is alot more boompsy and not as flat as the original – the original to me is just a pop album cut. Well the version below is the edit from the album. This remix has the ultra hard bass which makes it perfect for clubs. Right? Compare it to the original and you’ll see what I mean.
