  1. Shanti Dance Featuring The Droids (The Glimmers Acid Dub) by Muallem


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Shanti Dance is one of those dreamy, moody disco flavored dance tracks that you just can’t get enough of! It’s starts out mellow, gets into a modern nu disco beat then turns a different direction then head back to where the beats were. It’s quite an original track that I’ve been listening to for quite some time now. It’s got some slight touches of world beats hence the name Shanti Dance but it’s perfection! The remix by The Glimmers is quite nice too but certainly gets into the acid territory as the name suggests and it certainly is a dub style rather than a full on remix that you would expect. The Glimmers also give it a more funky beat to it certainly their trademark sound and style touches have been added to the remix. But I have to be honest my favorite is the excellent original version from the the album Frankie Splits. That’s the version I keep coming back to over and over again. The rest of Frankie Splits is a smorgasbord of eclectic musical styles mostly favoring the electronic genre but certainly crossing over into hip-hop and rap territory and some pop and alternative. It’s definitely a good album and worth noting. Album released on Compost Records. The remix is off of Mutations 2 Single.

    Both highly recommended for original cool electronic and dance music from Germany!

  2. Control (I’m Here) (The Hacker Remix 2006) by Nitzer Ebb


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I love a good remix of a good classic electronic cut from the 80s. I’m really digging this an awesome electro industrial, ebm classic like Control (I’m Here) by Nitzer Ebb way back from 1988 remixed by The Hacker of the Miss Kittin And The Hacker fame. I think that Nitzer Ebb are such an underrated band that anything greatest hits wise or remixes wise or even some new material they put out I’m there to hear it first. This remix of course came out in 2006 and I love what The Hacker has done to it. The original Control (I’m Here) from their excellent album Belief (which also contains Shame and Hearts and Minds) is of course what really got me into Nitzer Ebb, hearing it on the radio in San Francisco on Live 105 and finding out about them opening up for Depeche Mode countless times has made me a big fan. It’s Nitzer Ebb’s music that I got into all the industrial bands like Nine Inch Nails (pre 90s), Frontline Assembly, Front 242, Skinny Puppy, Thrill Kill Kult and more.

    If only this music lasted? Probably not but whatever! We can still enjoy the classics like this. This remix by The Hacker is off of the Nitzer Ebb greatest hits CD Compilation.

  3. Coco Electrik Covers Apollonia 6 With Sex Shooter


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Electropop group Coco Electrik covers Apollonia 6 hit song Sex Shooter from the Prince film Purple Rain? It’s certainly a fun take on the classic 80s dance funk song produced by Prince but the original is classic in my book and this remake falls a bit short but still fun though as I wont dismiss it completely. I just hope someone else comes around and remakes this a little better. Sex Shooter the Apollonia 6 cover by Coco Electrik is off of their Army Behind The Sun album and Sex Shooter single with bonus remixes.

  4. Love Kills (Rank 1 Remix) by Freddie Mercury


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Dutch trance act Rank 1, have remixed Freddie Mercury’s classic song Love Kills from the 80s Metropolis film revival soundtrack. Since the original film was a silent film somehow they figured there should be a new version of the film released with a new soundtrack produced by the God himself, Giorgio Moroder who also produced this classic song Love Kills for Freddie Mercury. Love Kills and Living On My Own are the two songs that really stand out from Freddie Mercury’s solo work. Although there are other songs that are available too like The Great Pretender, I Was Born To Love You, Made In Heaven but the the two former mentions are the songs I know Freddie Mercury’s solo music by. All of these mentioned tracks as well as really cool new remixes of them are available on The Very Best Of Freddie Mercury Solo album and worth it for sure as there are some really cool cuts that you probably have never heard of. It includes music from his work with soprano Montserrat Caballé.

    The remix to Love Kills is by the trance act Rank 1 better known for their late 90s trance track Airwave. Here the 80s version of Love Kills is remixed to perfection by Rank 1 and I’m really digging it and I’m sure you will too? Rank 1 Remix is not the only remix of Love Kills as there are remixes by Sunshine People, Pixel82 and a rework by The Glimmers. So The Very Best Of Freddie Mercury Solo album is certainly worth checking out as those remixes and remixes of other songs are all there!

  5. Versions Of Spacer Woman by Charlie


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Spacer Woman by Charlie is one of my all time favorite Italo Disco tracks. I remember hearing in the early 80s but it came and went as I was only 13 when it was released. But later about 8 years ago is when I rediscovered again. Actually in 2004 it was on a compilation called I-Robots: Italo Electro Disco Underground Classics that I rediscovered this track and since then I haven’t stopped listening to it. Boy does this track still sounds fresh today or what? Luckily too that there have been some remixes and remakes by Sally Shapiro and I-Robots that sound just as fresh as the original 1983 version of Spacer Woman by Charlie. Italo Disco was that genre that came out in the early 80s to sound fresh and underground to become cheesy and overplayed/overproduced by the 80s came to a close. Luckily there are cool cuts like Spacer Woman to revisit that spacey 80s sound.

    I-Robot’s version of Spacer Woman has been beefed up and been given the production treatments of todays technologies. The woman vocals have been removed and robotic vox have taken over which actually works quite awesomely. Then the Sally Shapiro version basically is replaced by Sally’s trademark vox mostly sung version. There are 3 versions of Spacer Woman on the single from Sally Shapiro and Johan Agebjörn. The upbeat remake which is still my favorite, the more spacey – mellow – ambient version called Deeper Space Woman and the spacey disco house version called Outer Space Woman (Parts 1 & 2). On the single is also a track called Mega Man 2 which is very video game soundtrack inspired cut. Very 80s for sure.

    Enjoy all three versions below and let me know what you think of all three.

  6. Forever Young (Bill Hamel Album Remix) by Alphaville


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Future Retro is an album certainly worth owning. It has some of the best songs from the 1980s remixed to todays tastes. Mostly club and electronic remixes of well known tracks such as Situation by Yaz, Need You Tonight by Inxs, The Walk by The Cure and many many more cuts. I wanted to post Forever Young today since it’s almost 2011 and I figured a remix of Forever Young by Hamel off of Future Retro would be best!

    The remix is excellent and any purists will still dig this remix of Forever Young by the German synth pop band, Alphaville from the 80s. Gosh I love this song and it will always remind me of high school in the 80s! Enjoy!

  7. The Look Of Love (Madison Park Vs. Lenny B. Remix) by Nina Simone


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This is one of the sexiest remixes made ever. Taking a very romantic and beautiful song and giving it a midtempo beat to is is alright in my book. Sexy cocktail lounge, hotel bar music is what this remix of Nina Simone’s The Look Of Love sounds like. Taken from Nina Simone’s Remixed & Reimagined CD from a few years ago and I highly recommend getting it because it’s a beautiful collection of Nina Simone recordings all updated with today’s remixing styles. Check out Billie Holiday Remixed & Reimagined as well. An awesome collection of Billie Holiday tracks all remixed and reimagined.

  8. Dancing Box (Sleeparchive Remix) by Modeselektor


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This post is about one of the best remixes ever made! That is Modeselektor’s Dancing Box track remixed by Sleeparchive. The original is this glitchy techno grime dub fusion thing with vox by TTC but the remix is a complete dirty gritty euphoric cut that takes you into outer space and back. It’s the bomb and I just can’t get enough of the beats. I would enjoy this remix with a very fine soundsystem so you an enjoy all it’s sounds. The Dancing Box Sleeparchive Remix is off the Hello Mom Remixes release which also includes Silikon (Siriusmo Remix), Fake Emotion (Dabrye Remix) and Silikon (Grime Remix). These are remixes from their awesome Hello Mom album! Highly recommend the  package of awesome remixes of a very cool act as well as their album Hello Mom!

    Not very familiar with Sleeparchive but I sure do like his sound! Enjoy both below …

  10. Love Won’t Leave Me Alone by Kenneth Bager Samples Theme From ‘A Summer Place’ by Percy Faith Orchestra


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 


    Theme from A ‘Summer Place’ by Percy Faith falls into cheesy elevator music territory. It’s a piece of music that most anyone will recognize when they hear it. I love though what Kenneth Bager has done by sampling Theme From ‘A Summer Place’. Check out the original and sampled version by Kenneth Bager below. The new version contains the haunting violin music of Jean Luc Ponty and the beautiful vocals of Nikolaj Grandjean singing Love Won’t Leave Me Alone … when you’re gone. I think this is a great job at sampling something that most folks will recognize and making it completely different where you’ll want to hear it where as Them From ‘A Summer Place’ in it’s original form you kind of skip or turn off if it ever came on. Check them out below. And download the rest of Kenneth Bager’s album Fragment From A Space Cadet. It’s an awesome album and there are  several masterpieces including two tracks by Julie Cruise from Twin Peaks fame. She does a remake of Les Fleur on Fragments. So this is a great collection of chill electronic vocal and instrumental cuts.

  12. Trentemoller Remixes Moby’s Classic Go


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 


    I’m a big fan of Trentemoller and have always been a fan of Moby’s techno classic from 1991 Go so I seriously had to check this remix out when I first heard of it. It’s pretty darn cool. Much less dreamy and more electro rocking frenetic beats but the if you listen the dreamy part surely comes.

    Check out both the classic Woodtick Mix with the awesome sample of Laura’s Theme from Twin Peaks and the Trentemoller remix. You like? The remix is from Moby Go The Very Best Of Moby Remixed and it’s definitely worth owning if you are at all a fan of remixes. You must be though if you’re reading right? From 2006.

    This is a vinyl promo release of the Dirty South Remix for Just Can’t Get Enough – the Depeche Mode synth pop classic that kick started their 25+ year career in the music biz. It’s a pretty darn good remix by Dirty South the Australian DJ/musician that’s known for his electro house sound. The remix keeps the original famous synth sound but it takes a while to actually hear something borrowed from the original Depeche Mode track but I still dig it. It’s very fresh and now … well from 3 years ago part of the Depeche Mode greatest hits CD that came out then with their single Martyr – their 45th single. It’s always fun to see the video to Just Can’t Get Enough as well. Check it out below.

    I love this … [Re: Jazz] have taken the Lisa Stansfield dance pop smash and made it into a jazzing vocal track and I think it works perfectly. Don’t you think? Check the two versions out and write a comment. The [Re: Jazz] version is much more mellower and of course perfect played by [Re: Jazz]. I can just picture it performed in an intimate jazz club whereas the version by Lisa Stansfield is perfect in a nightclub or heard from a radio station. I love them both.

    Hey I love this track Watch My Mouth by Cazwell. They’ve taken Taana Gardner’s Hearbeat and sampled perfectly in this Cazwell track. I think it works quite well. Even though the original Taana Gardner version is very downtempo I like the way in the Cawell track it’s sped up just the right amount. Check the two out see what I mean. Links below.

    The Taana Gardner original is now a disco classic that I listen to still. I discovered it late. It’s not hit that it could have been like you know the typical disco hits that everyone listens to by Gloria Gaynor, Chic and Village People. This Taana Garnder Heartbeat track is more underground and was released by the legendary the indie label West End Records. It’s a classic masterpiece!

  18. Disco’s Revenge by Maxence Cyrin


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Wow? What can I say about this remake to Disco’s Revenge? I loved the original version of Disco’s Revenge by Gusto back in the mid to late 90s. It was one of those house/club tracks that you’d find in the countless double mix CD’s available for sale. It was the kind of track that would really get you more into the groove of things as it would be perfect in a mix. It was that kind of a track. Nothing too big but still great and a semi hit around 1996. Well what Maxence has done is completely remade the track with a piano. His piano playing is amazing and I found this version on MEZZANINE de L’ALCAZAR volume 5 – Dinner Time by Rouge Rouge mix CD and I was like WOW! What have they done? It’s awesome!

    This remake comes off of his Modern Rhapsodies CD which also has versions of Behind The Wheel by Depeche Mode, Go by Moby, Don’t You Want Me by Felix, Windowlicker by Aphex Twin and more! Imagine all of your favorite electronic and dance tracks all remade with only a piano? WOW pretty cool.

  19. Personal Jesus (JLF Extended Remix) by John Lord Fonda


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Depeche Mode again? Yes! I think the best covers and remixes are of Depeche Mode songs. One of my all time favorite bands and I love it when they remix their own tracks and allow for others to cover or remake them. This one’s a really nice one! It’s by John Lord Fonda from France. It’s been given the energized dark and sleazy electro industrial touch to it with elements of the original version from Depeche Mode. Including the heavy breathing sounds and the “Reach Out And Touch Faith” lyrics.  

    Prior to discovering this remake I had never heard of John Lord Fonda? Do you folks know of this guy? His album DeBaser 2 which is the accompanying album to DeBaser. Both are great and worth owning if you want new music to discover and check out. If you’re at all into Vitalic (one of my favorites), The Hacker (another of my favorites) do check out John Lord Fonda as I think you’ll dig his music.

  20. Toop Toop (Martin Eyerer Remix) by Cassius


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Here’s a great awesome remix of a pretty darn good song by Cassius. Cassius has been around since the mid 90s but only released just a small handful of albums. This one came out of nowhere and got me really good. I dig it quite alot and it’s been on my iPod since late 2006.

    It’s definitely a great song to dance to and I can just hear it in the clubs but it’ best while you are driving the streets of the big city.

    What do you think of the two different versions? The original definitely utilizes the guitars but the remix is quite hot right? It’s so hot that Madonna used it as a remix to Get Into The Groove. It was a fresh change to the awesome Get Into The Groove. There’s a download link here to the Madonna version.

  21. Erotic City by Supafly Featuring Deni Hines


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I’m a BIG Prince fan but only pre Batman … anything after is just crap. Erotic City was one of Prince’s cult B sides that made to radio. It was the B side to Let’s Go Crazy and came out back in 1984 off of the Purple Rain soundtrac. It was an underground hit and I have to say that this version of Erotic City by Supafly featuring the great vocals of Deni Hines comes really close to the original. The cool thing about this version is it does not contain the stupid chipmunk voice that Prince has on the original. Not sure why that’s there in the original but I suppose Prince thought it was a good idea at the time to include it as part of the song. I think maybe he thought that since the subject matter of Erotic City was so risque that he thought he’d add the cute cartoony voices. Oh well it worked back then but it’s a little tired now.

    But the Supafly version is a nice update. What do you think? I think Prince covers are good and some bad but this remake is quite nice and definitely worth multiple listens! Don’t you think?

    Let me know.

    I found this version of Erotic City off of the absolutely fabulous Nu Cool series (Nu Cool 55) from Hed Kandi. Love their releases and this one is pretty cool.

    Check this out … Scream Club haven taken the classic new wave synth pop track Smalltown Boy by Bronksi Beat and sampled it as the background of their electro, hip hop rap dance tracks Life Of A Heartbreaker. The indie band

    It actually works quite nicely here. The chick rapping is fast enough and it’s a great touch for the sped up fast paced casio synth sounding Bronski Beat sample. You think?

    The rest of the album is lesbian themed electro rap which also includes guest vocals by Peaches among others but Life Of A Heartbreaker (Featuring Electrosexual) is the stand out cut for me as it contains one of my favorite synth pop tracks from the 80s.

    I love Diga Diga Doo by The Mills Brothers in it’s original form but when I heard it on G-Swing’s Swing For Modern Clubbers CD I couldn’t get quite enough of it. It’s been beefed up and sped up quite nicely and it’s perfect for any club that wants to throw in some swing style dance beats in their mix. It’s also perfect for listening to while in a car or on your iPod at home. The vocals are still the same as this is just a remix but the credits on the Swing For Modern Clubbers CD says DJ Brame. I don’t know much about DJ Brame but this remake is quite nice.

    The rest of the Swing For Modern Clubbers CD is quite nice too. There are some really great cuts on the disc including a vocal track by Rossy Depalma. Check out the tracklist below. There are remixes by Lindstrom on the disc as well.

    Here’s the track list for the entire disc.

    1. Sing Sing Sing
    2. Ring Dem Bells
    3. Busy Line
    4. I’m Crazy ‘Bout My Baby
    5. Don’t Be That Way
    6. Calor
    7. Run Joe
    8. Diga Diga Doo
    9. Goin’ Nuts
    10. Figs And Dates
    11. Twenty Long Years
    12. Promised Land
    13. Caravan
    14. Heartbreaker

    If you question why old time music should be remixed I say because it’s a great art and we should do more of it. I love albums like this and more and more remixes should be done of well known tracks from yesteryear. Let’s remix everything, right?

    Check the two version of Diga Diga Doo and let me know what you think. Also check out the promo video for the Swing For Modern Clubbers album.

  24. Ant Music by Hyper

    This is a really nice remake of the Adam And The Ants classic track from the 80s – Ant Music. It’s been energized and sounds nice and upbeat and has a fierce punk attitude by Hyper. Of course the original is a classic track and reached #2 on the UK charts when it first came out but this version by Hyper is all underground and not getting close to the pop charts – which is the way it’s got to be.
    Shouldn’t it?

    Check it out, listen, enjoy and comment about this remake!

  25. Never Let Me Down Again (Digitalism Remix) by Depeche Mode

    I love love love Never Let Me Down Again from Depeche Mode. Music For The Masses is a masterpiece and this comes off of it. Well the original that is. I also love Digitalism. I think dance punk is a good classification for the type of music they release. I do love Idealism – their first release as there’s some strong cuts on it. Including tracks like Idealistic and Pogo. I think both tracks get you groovin and dancing all over the place.

    So here Digitalism have taken the masterpiece track Never Let Me Down Again and remixed the hell out of it. I mean it’s hard and intense and rocking. Don’t you think? I love it. It gets you groovin and moving. Check it out and let me know what you think as I think you will love it.

    I really do enjoy Depeche Mode and the fact that they keep remixing their old songs. That’s awesome as I love revisiting their old stuff in an new light. Don’t you?
