  1. Sana Doris Samples Diana Ross Upside Down With Pseudo Wind


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This is the strangest, gayest Diana Ross remake, sample, cover ever. I like it actually and it sounds like something RuPaul could have pulled off back in the 90s or it could have perfectly fit in the film Paris Is Burning from ’91. Though there’s no RuPaul here this remake called Pseudo Wind by Sana Doris comes to us by way of the In Flagranti guys by way of Codek Records. So it’s gotta be cool right? This is from the 12″ SOUNDS SUPERB VOL. 6 and it’s worth it. If you can’t get your hands on it do it as fast as you can. Or else  you have Pseudo Wind by Sana Doris below so you can sample that and check out In Flagranti for more disco dance flavored releases. I know you are a closet disco lover so go get some In Flagranti and enjoy! They have a very sleazy, naughty disco sound that once you taste you wont go back. Enjoy! and Enjoy the promo video below as well!

  2. Carry On, Turn Me On (Bottin Remix) by Space


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Space is one of my favorite space disco acts from the late 70s! Hailing from the South Of France, they released countless spacey sounding energetic disco tracks with their biggest hit being Magic Fly! From that self titled album this song Carry On, Turn Me On original version is pulled from. Magic Fly the album also contains the excellent track Tango In Space. It’s an excellent album and certainly worth as Space and main frontman Didier Marouani is one of the innovators of electronic dance music.

    Bottin’s remix take on Carry On, Turn Me On is also excellent. It’s part of a killer compilation of great new remixes of Space tracks. King DJ’s awesome remake of Air Force is the highlight of the remix set along with this Bottin Remix of Carry On, Turn Me On. Other remixers include Sara Havcilek doing the remixing on Fasten Seat Belt which I also love and Foto’s Boulevard Of Dreams Mix of Deliverance rocks! Overall Space tracks have been given great new life in this collection of awesome remixes and I highly recommend any disco, electronic fan to own these great remixes and classic releases by Space.

  3. 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!

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


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. DJ Disse & Betina Bager Sample Fred Astaire With Cheek To Cheek


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    The electro-swing movement is alive and kicking in Europe but when is it going to really catch on here in the states? It’s a truly fun movement with loads of great releases! My first experience was buying the excellent G-Swing release back in 2006 when I visited Paris for the first time and it seems since then it’s gotten bigger and bigger with countless releases. For instance there’s been 3 Electro Swing releases and it’s not only the Electro Swing compilations. Here’s the list of Compilations available in this specific style/genre:

    Electro Swing – The Club
    Electro Swing 2
    Electro Swing 3
    White Mink (Electro Swing Versus Speakeasy Jazz)
    Electronic Swing Affair
    Art Of Electro Swing
    The Electro Swing Revolution

    And this is just a list of the compilations. There’s a whole list of artists that are releasing this style of music and have been for quite sometime now and it’s not only Parov Stelar that’s embraced this subgenre. There’s:
    Caravan Palace - Caravan Palace
    Parov Stelar (multiple album releases) but start out with The Paris Swing Box EP!
    Lyre Le Temps – Lady Swing
    Kormac – Word Play
    Club De Belugas (mulitple album releases) but start out with SWOP!

    And many, many more!!

    Well this remake of Fred Astaire’s Cheek To Cheek is one of those excellent remakes which basically samples Fred Astaire into a more upbeat electro-swing version of the original Cheek To Cheek by Fred Astaire. DJ Disse and Betina Bager do a very nice job here adding a quirkyness to it as it’s very bouncy and cartoony at times. You also here the tapping that’s a trademark of the era of this music and Fred Astaire himself. I discovered this version off of Electro Swing 3 but it’s also available as a single the Cheek To Cheek EP. Now we hope we can get more Fred Astaire Remixes album?? This isn’t the first Fred Astaire electro-swing remake either. Club Des Belugas SWOP includes a Puttin’ On The Ritz electro-swing version that’s also worth noting.

    Anyone into remixes or jazz remixes especially will truly love this style of music. So enjoy both original version by Fred Astaire and the sampled remake of Cheek To Cheek by DJ Disse & Betina Bager below. If you like to hear more Electro Swing check out these posts on DestroyRockAndRoll.com.

  8. General Motors, Detroit, America (Blackstrobe Remix) by Acid Washed


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I first heard General Motors, Detroit, America early last year and I fell in love with it. It kind of sounds like the soundtrack music to either an 80s Sci-Fi film or maybe even a mysterious documentary from that era. It’s cool. It’s perfect synth electronic with very 80s touches thrown in there. It truly has a very soundtrack feel to it. I can see it perfectly in Tron or something like that.

    Well I love the Blackstrobe remix even more. The original is more mellow sort of a downtempo thing but Blackstrobe have made it more clubby and bouncy but still keeping the mysteriousness. This release is off of the Acid Washed (love their name btw) album by the same name. If you are at all into synthy 80s inspired electro and electronic music then this album will satisfy you completely. I love it! It’s mostly all instrumental cuts and very bouncy fun music. The release is from Record Makers one of my favorite labels out of France! Home to folks like Sebastien Tellier, Kavinsky and more.

  9. Jan Johnston Remakes Sleeping Satellite by Tasmin Archer


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Tasmin Archer’s biggest hit Sleeping Satellite was a fun and obscure pop hit that came out of nowhere in 1992 to land on the pop charts. Later Tasmin Archer was nowhere to be found. I loved this song back in the early 90s and I think I have not heard much more from Tasmin since then. So Tasmin certainly reached the one hit wonder status but the song is certainly solid and still sounds great today. The remake here by Jan Johnston is quite good. Released by Perfecto Records, Paul Oakenfold’s 90s mega dance label that’s released countless trance hits is behind the production here. I think Jan Johnston does a pretty good job at singing this cut. I like it and I’m so happy that’s been remade as it deserves to be noticed today. The single package contains several remixes that are highly recommended to owning but this is the Club Mix below along with the original Tasmin Archer version that if you were too young or not around in 1992 you wouldn’t even know about it. This remake came out in 2009. Original Tasmin Archer version of Sleeping Satellite is off of Tasmin’s Great Expectations CD.

    Enjoy both versions below and feel free to comment on what you think  if each version.

  10. Witch Doktor (Eddie Thoneick Remix) by Armand Van Helden


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Gosh! Witch Doktor is the classic house track that broke Armand Van Helden into the dance charts. Witch Doktor was released in 94 which became a big hit which later led him to remix some of the worlds biggest acts including one of my favorite remixes ever of Professional Widow by Tori Amos which you can find here on Destroy Rock And Roll blog. Well I’m glad that it’s finally been remixed and updated for folks to enjoy today. It’s remixed by Eddie Thoneick and it’s got a very upbeat electro house feel to it with a very energetic groove. Get on the dancefloor and groove to the beats like it’s 1994.

    Although this remix to a classic Armand Van Helden track is not as great as Funk Phenomena remixed by Starkillers it’s still highly recommended for anyone into Armand Van Helden’s music or any dance music enthusiasts. Check them both out below. The 1994 version and the 2009 version.

  11. CFCF Covers Big Love by Fleetwood Mac


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I first heard of CFCF with a couple of remixes he did for Sally Shapiro. Love In July and Time To Let Me Go are remixes in the style of downtempo with very disco disco flavored electronic dance that I’ve been digging so was eager to check out the CFCF album Continent where Big Love comes from. I was surprised to hear Big Love as it’s my favorite cut from Continent. And to my surprise after listening to it several times that I kept thinking it was a cover. And sure enough it’s a Fleetwood Mac cover from the 80s.

    Big Love was a pretty big hit for Fleetwood Mac and it’s your typical dance/pop song very much in line of the 80s sounding tracks. Nothing special now but still worth checking out to compare both the CFCF version of Big Love and the Fleetwood Mac version.I have had the CFCF version of Big Love on repeat lately and it’s certainly ended up on several of my playlists that I take with me on my iPhone and iPod. It’s one of those tracks that you can listen to in the background and as well listen to while having a little get together where you want some energy in your music and not get stuck to the chill out stuff that’s typical. Big Love by CFCF is off of his album Continent and Big Love by Fleetwood Mac is off of their Tango In The Night album from 1987. Check them out below.

  12. Hablando (Dub Mix) by Vandalism & Sampled by In-Grid


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I first heard of Hablando by Ramirez on Journey’s By DJ Paul Oakenfold CD way back in 1994. It’s that building dreamy progressive trance that once you hear you’ll get caught up in it’s magic euphoric sounds and not want to stop listening to it. The Paul Oakenfold mix was pretty darn good and I’d listen to the whole thing and start over again. So I loved this mix and I loved Hablando by Ramirez.

    So then we have a remake here by Vandalism. It’s quite similar but lot more clubby. Gone are the dreamy quality of the original but made quite more upbeat and more electro. Vandalism have just adapted the classic trance track to todays ears. It works for clubs and driving in cars. It’s an all classic trance cut waiting to be made and finally it’s been brought back to life.

    Funny thing was I recently downloaded the new album by In-Grid. Ok I do like my pop dance music and noticed that Le Dragueur by In-Grid has a sample of the classic Ramirez track Hablando. This I absolutely love as they’ve taken a portion of the most famous part from Hablando and incorporated it into it’s own original song. Le Dragueur off of the album Passion by In-Grid. Enjoy all three!

  13. Walk The Line (Laurent Wolf Remix) by Laurent Wolf


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Taking a classic country song like I Walk The Line by Johnny Cash and sampling it into a dance song is alright in my book. So when I first heard about Walk The Line by Laurent Wolf I immediately wanted to check it out. I had thoughts that it might suck or be boring but in reality it was quite cool. The sound is energetic electro with sections of the famous line ‘I Walk The Line” sung by Johnny Cash and sampled into track. It works in my book. It’s an upbeat, energetic banging electro club cut with a little bit of country thrown in. Trust me it’s not Rednex! Check it out … what do you think?

    I Walk The Line by Johnny Cash
    Walk The Line (Laurent Wolf Remix) by Laurent Wolf

    The remix CD called Johnny Cash Remixed came out several years ago with remixes of Johnny Cash songs but I thought it was weak. Nothing like Verve Remixed or anything similar to that. Somebody did this remix project on a shoestring budget and didn’t quite achieve top notch remixes for this as I first thought I was totally going to dig it but it’s just ok in my book. I Walk The Line remix from Johnny Cash Remixed is below includes Snoop Dogg of all peops!

  14. Lucky Star 2009 (D.O.N.S. Remix) by Ron Carroll / Superfunk


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Lucky Star was a pretty big hit back in the late 90s/early 2000′s by Superfunk a French electronica/dance act. I loved the song as it was unique at the time, very soulful house type of a thing which was at the time a trademark sound coming out of the French dance scene.

    I love this remix by D.O.N.S. as it’s very updated to todays sound. More electro and more club friendly progressive house type of a think. The soulful house is sort of not there except for Ron Carroll’s vocals. I dig it and I’m sure you will dig it too. Will have to wait for more remixes by Superfunk in the future for sure as this tells me they are willing to do more and more remixes of older hits. Check out both the original 1999 version and the 2009 versions below.

  15. Walking On A Dream (Treasure Fingers Remix) by Empire Of The Sun


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I have to say Empire Of The Sun’s album Walking On A Dream has been one of my favorite albums of the last couple of years. Their songs are very similar to songs I listened to in my teens in the 80s. The entire album is full of really cool crossover pop/dance/synth songs I listen to over and over.

    I was happy to discover a really cool remix of Walking On A Dream too. This Treasure Fingers Remix is right on with quality. I sometimes love some songs too much in their original form that for some odd reason the remix just doesn’t work but it does here. This doesn’t happen too often as I love remixes but sometimes a song is perfect in it’s original form and a remix just doesn’t do justice.

    This remix package comes with a couple of other remixes as well including A Neon Neon remix of Walking On A Dream and a Losers Remix of Standing On The Shore. Well worth owning. And if you haven’t even heard of the full length album Walking On A Dream by Empire Of The Sun then you must not be alive so check it out too as it’s got a bunch of cool 80s influenced synth pop!

  18. Air Mail Special (Club Des Belugas Remix) by Ella Fitzgerald


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I love me some good old Ella Fitzgerald songs remixed! There have been countless remixes done of her songs in the past and I’m always interested in hearing more remixes. In compilations like the 4 volume Verve Remixed collection you’ll certainly discover some awesome Ella Fitzgeralad remixes. This is Air Mail Special a lesser known track from Ella’s back catalog. It’s part of the track list from Club Des Belugas album Zoo Zizaro. It’s not a remake or cover but a great remix. Club Des Belugas have taken the original Ella Fitzgerald version of Air Mail Special and have updated it made the song a lot livelier.

    I highly recommend anyone into Nu Jazz, lounge and cocktail music to check out Club Des Belugas.

    I’m not as big a fan of Lady Gaga like everyone else is (I like what she does with all her costumes and all) but damn this remix of Bad Romance by Chew Fu is one of my favorite remixes of her songs. I think Chew Fu has done quite the tweaking to a much mellower pop/electro hit and made it a very very upbeat club friendly tune. It’s now almost 2 years since Bad Romance first came out but this remix of Bad Romance still sounds fresh when played today. Enjoy!

  20. Ride on Time (Davoli’s Rockdaworld Remix) by Black Box


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Ride On Time is a classic track and very important to the development of pop house music. It was the song that kick started the big push towards more dance music in the mainstream pop radio. I love it and it’s definitely a classic cut that I keep coming back to. Leave it to the Italians to create such a great song followed by an awesome album Dreamland that I still listen to here and there. I was so happy to have heard of a 20th anniversary remix set that got released last year of Ride On Time. The classic Loleatta Holloway vocal fronted song has been given the great remix treatment with a bunch of new remixes in celebration of the 20th anniversary of Ride On Time. WOW! Can you believe it’s been that long?

    Anyway the package is awesome and I highly recommend anyone into Black Box, or dance music

  21. Malente Sample That’s The Way (I Like It) by KC & The Sunshine Band


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This is a really fun groovy remix of I Like It by Malente. The original version of I Like It is quite similar to the original That’s The Way (I Like It) by KC & The Sunshine Band but this remix by Riva Star gives it a little different twist to the disco sound and makes it more up to date and hip club friendly. Overall Malente has taken and old tired disco song that you’ve probably have been hearing for 30+ years and have found it on countless compilations and made it better and more now. Anyone into disco will enjoy both the original I Like It which you can see in the video below and the Riva Star remix below. Feel free to sample the The KC & The Sunshine Band’s version as well.

    This one’s a really quirky, fun sort of on the leftfield disco, new wave, no wave track that I really dig. I didn’t know anything about this really cool disco cut when I was growing up. I discovered it about 10 years ago after picking up the excellent disco compilation Mutant Disco from ZE Records. It’s fun really fun. Finally just earlier this year I discovered this more updated remix of the classic cut from ’79 and all I can say is it’s awesome! There’s not much difference between the two versions except that it’s slightly faster and a little groovier. If you don’t know ZE Records then you certainly have to check it out. It’s an underground New York disco/new wave label which features some really cool acts like Kid Creole & The Coconuts, Material with Nona Hendryx, Was (Not Was), Cristina, Garcons, The Waitresses, Suicide, James White & The Blacks, Caroline Loeb and many many more acts definitely worth discovering.

  23. Lollipop (Squeak E. Clean & Desert Eagles Remix) by The Chordettes

    I’m really digging this remix of Lollipop The Chordettes song from the late 50s. It’s been given the extra bassy treatment but it’s really short like the original song itself. The original song I’m sure you’ve heard countless times is a cute innocent late 50s pop hit but this ones got a bit of gritty inner city feel to it even including a recognizable beat from Tone Loc’s Wild Thing. I’m sure you’ll recognize it once you hear it. I love it. Found this recently on the Whip It (film) soundtrack and wasn’t even aware that a remix has been done to this song and I’m happy to have discovered it.

  24. Lose You (DJ Hell Remix) by Peaches

    I like Peaches but something about her turns me off a bit. Her music is hit and miss at times. I really like some of it and the rest is just ok to me.  But I really do love this song and remix of Lose You that DJ Hell did for Peaches though. The remix was released late last year but I only just heard it from the awesome International DJ Gigolos CD 12 that came out a couple of months back. The song in it’s original form is already a moody electro recording but DJ Hell has given it the dreamy midtempo beats for the clubs. I love both and can listen to them at different times. What do you think?

  25. Heads Will Roll (A-Trak Remix) by Yeah Yeah Yeahs


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Cutting edge alternative band records song. They release album. They hire an awesome remix team and hand over their masters of one of their songs to a remix team. The remix team crafts a masterpiece remix of the cutting edge alternative bands song. The remix turns out 1000% better than the original. This story has been told countless times and I’ll say it again. Well I already did! That is the case with Heads Will Roll by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs! The original Heads Will Roll is just ok. Sounds very flat sorry I hate flat music. I love my highs and lows. But this remix of Heads Will Roll by A-Trak is just so damn good. I love it. So enjoy below and after previewing both you’ll feel the same as I do! I’ve now become a fan of Yeah Yeah Yeahs because of remix from remix team. That’s what it takes!
