    Take the gayest song ever and sample it and make a fun upbeat electro disco recording of it utilizing elements of The Weather Girls Paul Jabara written hit song It’s Raining Men and you have a fun track! That’s exactly what Beatfanatic did with Goin Out. It’s from his album Beat A Part which is chock full of electro disco cuts with a heavy 80s influence. My delicious cup of tea. LOL! I love it and have been exploring more and more of Beatfanatics music lately. Beatfanatic’s music is sample heavy as most of his recordings have one hit 80s disco song or another 70s disco cut. This is a true genius producing music from existing cuts.

  2. I Wanna Dance (Boy Norty Edit) by The Cool Notes


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 


    If your cup of tea is 80s disco then this remix/edit of I Wanna Dance by The Cool Notes is your new favorite song. I Wanna Dance (Boy Norty Edit) by The Cool Notes from Backstreet Brit Funk Re-Edits EP is the best 80s remix that wasn’t released in the 80s. Such energy it has with a very hi-nrg 80s disco dance flavor. The original song reminds me of anything The Jets released in the 80s as I did not know The Cool Notes. Not sure if they had any success here in the states but I doubt it. They are from the UK from South London and the band was releasing reggae music in the late 70s but moved on to doing soul, funk and dance pop in the 80s.

    But I’m quite lucky to have found this excellent collection called Backstreet Brit Funk compiled by Joey Negro and it’s accompanying EP Backstreet Brit Funk Re-Edits. Loads of tasty 80s grooves that are so worth discovering.

  3. 12 Mile High (JPOD the Beat Chef Remix) by Thunderball


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Those of you that know of Thunderball probably know of the album Scorpio Rising from 2001. Scorpio Rising was the soundtrack to sexy restaurants and cocktail lounges as you’d hear it as the background music to those types of establishments. Scorpio Rising is one of my all time fave albums from the 2000s and one of the best to play at a cocktail party. It’s just perfection and it’s everything that a Thievery Corporation album is not! Sorry guys! But Thunderball’s been making music since Scorpio Rising and their latest album 12 Mile High came out last year and is basically a progression of Scorpio Rising in 2001 then Cinescope in 2004, their unique combination of trip hop sounds with broken beatz, acid jazz, downtempo and future jazz all thrown in for a intoxicating concoction . But the Thunderball guys decided to take that album to the next level by offering up tasty remixes from the hippest remixers around today. Now this is my cup of tea!!

    All the key tracks from 12 Mile High are remixed to the max. My favorite being 12 Mile High (JPOD The Beat Chef Remix) but all the remixes are top notch here with links to check out below.

  4. HORSE MEAT DISCO III


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Horse Meat Disco 3 picks up where Horse Meat Disco 2 left off last year and I’m digging what I hear so far! Horse Meat Disco 3 is a collection of underground disco cuts that you probably have not heard of before but definitely should as these are the disco cuts that really should be the better known ones. On Horse Meat Disco 3 there are several stand out cuts and edits or remakes/remixes of existing ones. Horse Meat Disco 3 kicks off with French trio Belle Epoque and their hit Miss Broadway with an edit here by Gazeebo. A fun poppy disco cut if you haven’t heard it then it’s certainly worthwhile. Skip ahead to Sweet Dynamite by Claudja Barry edited by Todd Terje! Wow I dig this. I love Claudja Barry’s music and this edit by Todd Terje gives Sweet Dynamite a brand new life! Like Bottin did with Lio’s Sage Oil a couple of years back!

    Next up on Horse Meat Disco 3 is Fuzz Against Jazz and their really funky groovy disco number Born Under Puncher (Harvey’s Punch Drunk Mix). It’s a nice beat and I’m totally digging this cut and it’s perfectly fit in order here. What comes up next is a totally funky disco number which is also remixed by Todd Terje – Moon Jocks ‘n’ Prog Rocks by Mungolian Jetset is one awesome cut on here that I had to repeat over and over again. It sounds like it came from the 70s height of disco music but this thing was released last month. I say it’s amazing.

    By now I’m really enjoying Horse Meat Disco 3 as I love the idea of mixing music from today that sounds like disco and dance from the 70s with disco music from the 70s and 80s. It’s great so far!

    Dimitri From Paris & DJ Rocca Present Erodiscotique’s Downtown is perfectly mixed next into this great mix so far and how can you go wrong with Dimitri From Paris? The guy is a genius and this track, Downtown is quite nice!

    I’m In Love by Yam Who? is a remake of the Sha-Lor classic from the late 80s and it’s great here and I’m In Love definitely deserves the remake treatment as it’s a long lost late 80s dance/house classic. Gosh I can still remember hearing this here in San Francisco back in the late 80s!

    Billie Ray Martin? Yes it’s nice she’s back. Can you remember her in the mid 90s with her hit Your Loving Arms Around Me? Well she’s got great new stuff and this cut Sweet Suburban Disco is a standout. Let’s please get a hit out of this one!

    I think the stand out cut on Horse Meat Disco 3 is You Don’t Know (Horse Meat Disco Remix) by Tambi. This thing is just awesome. I hadn’t heard of Tambi but boy I’m glad I did. You will dig it. Other cuts on Horse Meat Disco 3 include 2 cuts by Sylveseter, Idris Muhammad, The Glimmers (one of my favorite acts as of late) and Two Tons Of Fun.

    Overall a great collection of cuts are represented on Horse Meat Disco 3 and perfectly mixed to perfection by the Horse Meat Disco boys. Worth of owning this great compilation. Preview the tracks below.

  5. Danny Tenaglia Covers Front 242 With Headhunter


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Headhunter is one of my all time favorite Industrial tracks if not one of my all time favorite songs ever and to have heard of a remake by Danny Tenaglia in the late 90s was a pretty good surprise from the legendary house music DJ and producer. Headhunter Front 242′s cover song is off of Danny Tenaglia’s Tourism CD and it ends the disc on a very high note. Although Tourism is mostly house vocal house with dashes of progressive thrown in here and there in Danny Tenaglia’s typical deep dark tribaly style (check out Elements on Tourism) that he’s known for but then Headhunter is a slight bit more industrial as it’s a remake of one of the biggest electro industrial songs around and it works great.

    Tourism is chock full of big club hits for Danny Tenaglia. From the opening track Baby, Do You Feel Me? with awesome vocals by Teena Marie, to Elements, Music Is The Answer (Dancin’ & Prancin’ sung by Celeda to Turn Me On, The Better Days being my favorite cut along with Headhunter on Tourism and with excellent vocals by Cevin Fisher and a very deep dark sexy dance beat rocks and still fresh today and Roots (The Sound Of The Drum) all became hits in the club world and landing on the dance charts.

    2 years after Tourism was released Headhunter by Front 242 received the well deserved remix treatment and I must say those remixes are some of the best of Headhunter by Front 242. Of the package of remixes Noisex Remix of Headhunter is my favorite as dark and heavy on the bass beats with a sleazyness to it. I also like Resistance D Mix, Space Frog Mix, Aqualite Mix and finally the Doug Laurent Mix. But the package of remixes is a must, must have for any Front 242 or remix fan!

  6. 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!

  7. Rope (Deadmau5 Mix) by Foo Fighters


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    By no means am I a fan of Foo Fighters. Sure I might like (keyword like) a couple of their songs here and there but in no way I go out of my way to buy their music. I don’t! It’s just the same rock or alternative song over and over again. No room for originality and that’s what the mainstream folks listen to. Don’t they get tired of this stuff? But when I found out that Deadmau5 remixed Rope their hit from Wasting Light I was there to check it out and listen to it. Now this remix is awesome. Hundred thousand times better than what they have released in it’s original form off of Wasting Light. Ok folks will hate me for what I’m saying but check out both versions and see for yourself. The Deadmau5 remix of Rope by Foo Fighters lends itself perfectly for the song. They actually should have released this version over the original. I guess the record execs felt it’s a pretty darn cool remix to be included in the deluxe edition of Wasting Light. You think? I’m a big big fan of Deadmau5 and to hear that he’s done this amazing remix of a Foo Fighters song it pretty darn cool in my book. It comes to show you that folks are getting tired of the same old rock song over and over again and they need a little remix variety.

    Good, it’s about damn time!

  8. Depeche Mode – Remixes 2 Collection – 1981 – 2011!


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Depeche Mode are back with another excellent remix collection of their greatest hits remixed for todays ears. This is such an excellent release that any Depeche Mode fan or remix fan needs to go out and get this collection. Depeche Mode Remixes 2 Collection 1981 – 2011. The 3 disc remixes set has one of my all time favorite remixes of any Depeche Mode song ever. That is Higher Love from 1993 from my least favorite Depeche Mode album Songs Of Faith And Devotion. At that time grunge was big so DM decided to go towards a heavy grungy rock sound. Either way Higher Love was remixed by Francois Kevorkian back in 1993 and was included on the In Your Room single. Best thing on there although I do like the In Your Room Jeep Rock Remix which is not on this Depeche Mode Remixes 2 Collection – 1981 – 2011! Glad Higher Love (Adrenaline Mix) is now included on new their Remixes 2 Collection of songs from 1981 – 2011.

    Depeche Mode – Remixes 2: 81-11 continues where Remixes 81-04 left off. That collection came out in 2004 and it’s certainly an excellent 3 CD collection of cuts from their career up until 2004. Excellent remixes on 81-04 include Photographic (Rex The Dog Remix), Halo (Goldfrapp Remix), Clean (Colder Version) and Nothing (Headcleaner Rock Mix) but also mentioned In Your Room (The Jeep Rock Mix) and that’s on Depeche Mode Remixes 81-04. Last collection focused on Enjoy The Silence with several remixes and a remix single for Enjoy The Silence and this time around they are focusing on another Violator single, Personal Jesus with a remix single to compliment Depeche Mode – Remixes 2: 81-11 which are all worthy of exploring if you haven’t already. Both of the singles have longer versions of the remixes that are on the remix collections plus bonus cuts and remixes that are not on the remix collections so they are worth owning. Enjoy!

  9. Too Young To Die (Moullinex Remix) by Data MC VS. Nhan & Taan


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I absolutely love this song Too Young To Die by Data MC Vs. Nhan & Taan,  and I can’t stop listening to it. Just a fluke discovery recently by way of Hed Kandi’s Nu Disco: Future Sound Of Disco compilation. One of the best Nu Disco compilations out there ever. It’s full of hit after cool sexy nu disco hit that you wont be able to stop playing. Cool songs and remixes by some of the best new underground electronic artists out there which includes Sebastien Tellier, Marina & The Diamonds, Mercedes, Russ Chimes, Gamble & Burke, Super Red Berry, N.A.S.A. Featuring Kanye West, Lykke Li & Santigold, Treasure Fingers and of course Data MC Vs. Nhan & Taan.

    Too Young To Die by Data MC with a little help from Nhan & Taan is off of Data MC’s excellent album Daily Mirror and it’s one of the stand out cuts. The original is quite excellent on it’s own which is a poppy dance house electronic cut with a nice beat and then the Moullinex Remix is a step above the original. The Moullinex remix is what gives the track the more nu disco feel to it. it’s quite nice and I’m sure you’ll enjoy too. Other cool cuts off of Daily Mirror are Intergalactic Romance, Fever and If I Gave You My Digits (with Lexy & K-Paul). Daily Mirror kind of reminds me of early Prince and the early 90s Pet Shop Boys like the album Very. Cool new music that should definitely be discovered by anyone into electronic and dance music. It’s also time to discover more Moullinex. They are off the excellent German label Gomma!

  10. Never Gonna Reach Me (Hot Toddy Remix) by Crazy P


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Crazy P or if you know them as Crazy Penis is an electronic band from the UK which release soulful, house music with a highly concentrated disco flavor. Since I discovered them several years ago with their album 24 Hour Psychedelic Freakout, I immediately fell in love with their laidback, sexy nu disco sound. I just can’t get enough of that sexy sound.

    Never Gonna Reach Me is off of Crazy P’s excellent album Stop Space Return with influences of early New York City house music and combed with disco and 80s dance and pop music styles with sultry disco diva vocals added in to make for an album you wont stop listening to. The original Never Gonna Reach Me is this very mellow, downtempo early disco sounding cut that you can hear full on real instruments in the song with a very minimal production style. It could thought of as being released in the late 70s or early 80s It’s perfectly situated as the fourth track on Stop Space Return. The Hot Toddy Remix is my favorite version as it’s given a more smoother deep house disco treatment. It’s an almost 10 minute journey to sexy after hours disco land. I just absolutely love it and I’m sure you will too! Hot Toddy have done great remix job on this track.

    If you like Crazy P’s sound you will certainly have to check out Hot Toddy’s releases as well. Late Night Boogie by Hot Toddy is excellent and hey it’s all in the family. Hot Toddy is Chris Todd from Crazy P so figures that he would do the remixing for his own music. Right?

    If you like disco flavored electronic and house music then Stop Space Return is your kind of a release. Check it out and check out some of the other Crazy P releases too. Later by Crazy P is also a good album to start out with the sounds and influences of Crazy p! Enjoy!

  11. Afro-Left (Afro-Ride) by Leftfield Is Best Remix Ever?


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    By the time Leftfield’s masterpiece of an electronic dance album Leftism was released in 1995 I had already had the pleasure of hearing several of their earlier singles starting with Not Forgotten all the way back in 1990 to Song Of Life in 1992 to Open Up with John Lydon of Sex Pistols in 1993 just less than 2 years before their amazing debut album Leftism had left a major impression on me and the electronic and dance music culture and since then there has not been as excellent of an album like Leftism. Well there have been but not that many.

    Afro-Left is the second cut off of Leftism and it’s one of those African/electronic tribal tech cuts that’s quite good on it’s own. It’s upbeat but not banging but it’s got a good groove you can get down to. Once you get into the remix Afro-Left (Afro-Ride) is when things really get frenetic brimming with electronic energetic XTC.  Afro-Left (Afro-Ride) is 10 minutes of electronic dance music pleasure! It’s the best remix ever made, I think. The frenetic almost drum and bass style beats don’t pick up fast it starts quite slow and dreamy. The remix builds starting with Djum Djum’s singing and chanting then slowly builds up into the upbeat style that I have fallen in love with. If I had to pick the best remix this would be it and I totally love remixes and hear countless remixes over and over again. But this is it. It’s just the bomb! I was happy to have also heard it on the soundtrack to Wipeout 2097 which featured some of the best electronic and dance cuts around 1995/1996.

    Two years later Leftfield released another excellent album called Rhythm & Stealth. Later disappearing off the face of the earth. Well their still around but nothing has been released from them since then. Maybe something for a 20 year reunion?

    If you can get your hands on Leftism do so. It’s not available as a download on iTunes but Amazon has both the download and the CD so snatch it up.

  12. 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.

  13. 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!

  14. 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”
    5. “Gone Away”
    6. “Prelude”
    7. “Not Over”
    8. “Snake Charmer”
    9. “Always”

    12. “Heartbeat”

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  18. Arena (The Japanese Popstars Remix) by Daft Punk


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    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.

  19. 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.

  20. Kon Kan Samples Nancy Sinatra-Led Zeppelin With Puss N’ Boots/These Boots (Are Made For Walking)


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    The year was 1989 and I was so into music then as I have always been. The music that I was listening to was whatever was being fed to me on Live 105 here in San Francisco. They had a pretty eclectic mix of modern rock, punk, goth and synth pop/dance with a little bit of euro dance thrown in and the beginning sounds of the electronic dance music movement like acid and some house whatever you want to call it. Kon Kan was a regular on Live 105 and their hit I Beg Your Pardon (I Never Promised You A Rose Garden) was on the radio all the time. It was actually a fairly big hit for Kon Kan and not only it was on the modern rock stations it was on the top pop radio stations as well. Well Puss N’ Boots/These Boots (Are Made For Walking) was the second release from their self titled album and was a fairly bit hit for them. At the time I knew that it sampled Nancy Sinatra’s These Boots (Are Made For Walking) but I did not know it also sampled Led Zeppelin’s Immigrant Song. Ok I was not a fan of Zeppelin back then but I have learned to appreciate them since then.

    Puss N’ Boots/These Boots (Are Made For Walking) is classic original track utilizing samples from other recordings. It was such a big deal for them they won many awards in their country, Canada. The album Kon Kan is chock full of 80s synth pop classics. Barry Harris is the one man member of Kon Kan who later in the mid 90s started the band Outta Control and in the late 90s was in an act called Thunderpuss who were known for their excellent remixes of major label recording artists like Whitney Houston, Cher, Pet Shop Boys, Madonna and many many more as well as original productions on their own like the Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag single.

  21. I Wander (Christopher Just Remix) by Louie Austen


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Take Frank Sinatra and add dance electronic dance beats and that’s what you get when you listen to Louie Austen. It’s the most interesting combo around ever. If you are still waiting for the Warner Brothers group to remix Frank Sinatra’s greatest hits then wait no longer you can get all original music from the smoother than ever Louie Austen. Louie Austen’s music reminds you of any of those oldy crooners from time forgotten with a new dance beat. Louie Austen’s music is all original song produced by the best German electronic and dance producers and remixers.

    I first heard of Louie Austen after listening to a Hotel Costes CD. I think it was Hotel Costes 5 and the song was One Night In Rio. I was totally hooked to his sound. One Night In Rio is more lounge with dance beats but I was really looking for more music. Later discovered more and more including songs with Peaches and other tasty goodies and finally I was hooked. Since then I’ve picked up whatever new material Louie Austen has released.

    His latest offering is Last Man Crooning/ Electrotaining You, the double album which is basically the album Last Man Crooning and Electrotaining You is the companion remix CD. A very nice collection because the remixes are all top notch here including this awesome remix of I Wander by Christopher Just. Of course the original I Wander is the mellower poppier version and the Christopher Just Remix is the more lively, quirky electronic almost festive version here. It’s very groovy and knowing it’s remixed by Christopher Just I would expect nothing else. Other remixers on Electrotaining You are Acid Washed, Rodion, Phonique and more.

  22. 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!

  23. Just What I Needed by W.I.T. (Whatever It Takes)


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Just What I Needed is the classic 80s song by the band The Cars! This is a fun remake by the all girl group Whatever It Takes – W.I. T. The Larry Tee produced electro synth pop group’s first single release Ooh I Like It was a fun cut similar in style and sound to 80s acts like The Flirts, Stacey Q and even acts like Company B and the like. Later when their album came out I discovered the fun little remake of Just What I Needed. This music is bubblegum, cute and very pop inflected sound. I think Larry Tee was very influenced by those types of bands and sounds to produce a fun album.

    The band is no longer now but this sound is still now so go check out the cuts by Whatever It Takes. In addition to The Cars cover Just What I Needed and Ooh, I Like It . Then there’s an Arthur Baker remixed cut Hold Me, Touch Me (with even a Blackstrobe Remix out there somewhere), I Surrender and finally their theme song Whatever It Takes. Overall a great fun poppy album worth hearing and owning for sure. The softer poppier side of Glass Candy, Ladytron and Adult!

  24. 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.

  25. Without Lies (Black Van Remix) by Aeroplane


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    When I eat cake I prefer the cherry sings Sky Ferreira as guest vocalist on Aeroplane’s hit song Without Lies from the excellent album We Can’t Fly. I first heard We Can’t Fly the single and was immediately hooked to their Nu Disco sound and style. Without Lies in it’s original form is pretty minimal which is great on it’s own but the remix by Black Van takes the original and beefs it up with more upbeat disco style but still feeling relaxed as it’s not the type of song you would hear in a mega club. The Black Van remix has a very 80s disco sound and style which is totally cool for all you 80s revivalists.

    The album We Can’t Fly also has a very space rock/disco sound to it – it’s totally inspired by the 80s well maybe a bit of late 70s thrown in. Check out the track Superstar and you’ll know what I’m talking about. I love it and if you have not heard of Aeroplane then you should and definitely check out their album We Can’t Fly and song of the same name as you will love.

    Without Lies single also contains an excellent remix by Breakbot that’s also worth to note as it takes the song into a funky disco territory.
