  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  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. Camino Del Sol (Todd Terje Remix) by Antena


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I recently discovered this awesome track Camino Del Sol (Todd Terje Remix) by Antena and it has really grown on me. I’m speaking about the remix to Antena’s Camino Del Sol remixed by Todd Terje from a couple of years back. The original is from way back in 1982 that I only discovered after hearing the awesome Todd Terje Remix. Actually both the original and remix are pretty new to me but the remix is quite awesome. It’s got a very chill, flowy, summery, beachy vibe that you can put on and chill to with waves crashing into the beach and with warm summer sun rays hitting your face. That’s the kind of track this is. And with the Todd Terje remix he’s added his trademark very light nu disco vibe to it that I’m really loving. The original is more lo-fi Brazil island vibe but the remix rocks!

    Now I’m really curious to search out and find out more about Antena. Interesting note is Isabelle Antena is one of the 3 members from Antena and I think the band is most likely named after her last name. Right? If you are at all a fan of island chill, Brazil jazz, downtempo then Antena is your cup of tea. It’s mine too and I just love this Todd Terje Remix.

    The remix is off of the remix album called Version Speciales #1 of Antena songs and there are some  awesome remixes by famous remixers and musicians. Other remixes of Antena songs on the remix collection are by bands Nouvelle Vague, Chromatics, Joakim, Phreek and Disco Devil! Worth owning if you don’t have it.

  5. 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.

  6. London In The Rain by Variety Lab Samples Blossom Dearie


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Boy this was a great find. It’s been a while since I first heard it. Going on 10 years now I first heard it on a Hotel Costes Quatre CD and immediately I wanted to know where that sample came from. To my surprise it’s from this beautiful Blossom Dearie recoring called I Like London In The Rain. The marriage of downtempo/chillout electronic music and old jazz recordings is one of my favorite subgenres of music and I enjoy it very much. This track by Variety Lab is one of the finest examples of taking an old jazz song and sampling it and making a totally unique track. If I had to put a top then list of jazz samples London In The Rain by Variety Lab would be in that list and way up top.

    The original I Like London In The Rain song is off of Blossom Dearie’s album That’s Just The Way I Want To Be and London In The Rain is off of the Variety Lab CD Providence.

    Both albums highly recommended!

  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. The Dynamics Cover Curtis Mayfield With Move On Up!

    Love this reggaefied remake of the Curtis Mayfield classic Move On Up by The Dynamics. It’s a really nice remake from the band from France and once I heard it it was like this is nice and chill perfect for like background music for chill parties or to chill to in the background. The vocals are laidback and smooth and somewhat sexy. The song is from The Dynamics album Version Excursions which is an album of covers in this style which I highly recommend. Anyone into covers or reggae, soul, funk music should check out the album. Link to iTunes music store below as well.

    This is a fun Latinized instrumental remake of the Francoise Hardy classic song Comment Te Dire Adieu by Blank & Jones. No vocals here just all instrumental music with a very chill, sexy downtempo groove. The remix is called Beach House Mix so you can just picture yourself chilling poolside or at the beach with a cocktail and with the smooth beats of this track. It’s a fun remake and certainly one of many for this very popular classic Francoise Hardy cut. This remix is off of the Blank & Jones album Relax: Edition Five Enjoy and let me know what you think of this compared to the original. Both versions below.

  10. Visti & Meyland Sample Ora Dell Graham With Yes Maam!


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I’ve been listening to Visti & Meyland’s Yes Maam for a couple of years now. I discovered it on a compilation called Rasa Exotica 3. Didn’t really think much about it when I first started listening to this song but later it really grew on me. I was really interested in finding out where the sample comes from and I was definitely going to find out. Searching around online I found out that Trentemoller had also done a remix of Yes Maam which gives it the more electro club groove to it. The original is more chill with a beat. So I finally found out after researching online that Yes Maam incorporates a sample from Ora Dell Graham’s Little Girl, Little Girl. I was able to find the album that it came off of as well. The sample is pretty short – about 25 seconds in all that’s the entire length of the song on the compilation album called Afro-American Blues and Game Songs.

    This isn’t the first time that an electronic band or musician has sampled old blues recordings. The compilation Afro-American Blues and Game Songs contains songs by Vera Hall as well. If you remember Vera Hall or if you don’t know of her music then you’ll probably recognize her voice on Moby’s very successful album Play with the song Natural Blues. Her song was called Troubled So Hard and Moby had sampled Vera Hall’s recording and made it into a very popular downtempo electronic beat. Love that song and I’m still very happy to hear of great sampling jobs happening with electronic musicians.

    The album Visti & Meyland also contains a cover of Nightclubbing the Iggy Pop and Grace Jones song which I think is pretty cool and another hit track called Stars.

    Going back to Yes Maam, I have heard of a version of Yes Maam with a rap thrown in it and I think that version sucks! Please, please don’t throw a Goddamn rap in every damn song. I hate the version of this with the rap it makes it too poppy and gives it a mass produced pop song quality and takes away from the Ora Dell Graham sample. It kind of puts it down because the rap is so damn huge and raw the female voice much more gentle so it comes off pretty bad. Stay away from the rap version of Yes Maam and go right to the original version. And the remix by Trentemoller is great too. Enjoy!

  11. So Phat! Cover Sheila E. With A Love Bizarre


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I love buying compilations because with compilations you always discover unique tracks that never get heard anywhere, tracks that are remakes that just get discovered so I love the compilations a lot because it’s one of the best ways to discover new music. Such is the case with this remake of an 80s classic track A Love Bizarre by So Phat! I discovered this cover on Erotic Lounge 2 pictured below. It’s one of those Hotel Costes, Buddha Bar type compilations broken down to 2 discs one being the slower mellower disc the other being the more upbeat collection. They contain a great collection of tracks and this Sheila E. cover is certainly the discovery in this disc. The original was released 6 years ago in 2004 but I just recently got this collection and it’s certainly a good discovery. Check out both the Sheila E. version which has some vocals by Prince and the new So Phat! version of A Love Bizarre.

  12. 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.

  13. Cruel Intentions (Heartbreak’s Slow Action Remix) by Simian Mobile Disco


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 


    Cruel Intentions has loads of remixes in the single package but my favorite is this remix – the Heartbreak’s Slow Action Remix. Signing up Beth Ditto to do the vocals was a great choice and this song kind of takes Simian Mobile Disco in a slower more chill direction versus their last self titled album but I’m digging what I hear so far. Been a fan of Simian Mobile Disco and I’m sure I’ll continue. This remix gives the song a mellow disco groove perfect for after hours chilling in the club or cocktail sipping at the lounge. Works great for me. Does it work for you?

    Listening to Ida Corr’s Under The Sun in it’s original form makes you think that you are listening to pretty acomplished R&B singer. Then you have this great big remix package for Under The Sun and the remixes range in all styles including full on club bangers and my favorite the Ibizarre Remix which has been given the haunting beats perfect for late night chilling. Gone is the rap from Shaggy that’s present in the original version which I think was a good decision. To me it just doesn’t make sense to include the rap but oh well it’s there in the original version we’ll deal with but it’s all about the remix here and I listen to it over and over again. It’s that good!

  15. Italian Secret Service Cover Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit

    I think every song should be remixed, remade, sampled even such a classic song like Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana. I love the idea of taking a song that’s recognized in a genre and switching it on everyone and rerecording it in a complete different style. And here it’s done quite well by Italian Secret Service from Irma Records out of Italy. This remake takes me back to the early 60s, innocent jazzy easy listening music. It’s fun and this really works just grab yourself a mai tai and enjoy.

The original song is a mellow laidback emotional cinematic masterpiece but The Random Access Man Remix is going to lead you into the club to get down to. The remix has been given the guitar, electro upbeat energetic treatment. There are several other remixes but this one wins me over the best. Check out the track list and both versions below.

    This is an awesome downtempo groove version of the Donald Byrd jazz classic Think Twice by Ralph Myerz & The Jack Herren Band. Whereas the Donald Byrd version is quite 70s smooth and funky sounding the Ralph Myerz & The Jack Herren band version is quite cool and laidback and has the after the clubbing vibe to it. It features the vocals of Christine Sandtorv. Check them both out below.

    The Ralph Myerz version is off of A Special Album which came out in 2003. The Donald Byrd version is off of his Stepping Into Tomorrow album.

    I love Ocean Beach by Black Might Orchestra. It’s a cover of the late great Henry Mancini’s Lujon track. Lujon is actually one of my favorite tracks from Henry Mancini … it’s a beautiful and sexy downtempo jazzy cinematic masterpiece and Black Mighty Orchestra have taken parts from Lujon and sampled it to an electronic chillout hit. You’ve probably heard Ocean Beach on countless chillout compilations and it’s still great to have as background music for a dinner party or to relax to at home.

    Check out both versions below and write a comment about it!

    You can find these songs and a bunch of other great tracks off of both albums pictured above.
