  1. Don’t Turn The Lights On (Aeroplane Remix) by Chromeo


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Chromeo keep pushing the 80s inspired grooves with their single Don’t Turn The Light’s On off of their latest album Business Casual a truly fun 80s style album with touches of disco, funk and synth grooves. It’s a fun album and keeps pushing them forward now with their third great album. Well my favorite remix of Don’t Turn The Lights On is one by Aeroplane where the beats are a little more spacey, nu disco inspired similar to all of Aeroplane’s music. It’s still keeps the pace of the original version as this remix is not the remix to get your club groove on with. It’s got a more dreamy spacey laidback feel to it. I dig this nu disco sound and I’m sure you will too!

    If you haven’t heard of this great remix you should check it out below. You should also check out more music by Chromeo and Aerooplane here on DestroyRockAndRoll.com!

  2. 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.

  3. I’m So Excited (Coffee Extended Mix) by Qika


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Obscure electro dance club remake of the Pointer Sisters 80s dance-funk classic I’m So Excited. I’m not sure if I’m digging this or not. I like the beats the vocals are just not cutting it for me. I don’t know who Qika is or are but it’s a pretty big package of remixes here. What do you think?

  4. N-Joi Sample Gwen Guthrie’s Peanut Butter On Anthem


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    “I’m In Love With You, Want You To Love Me Too” is the famous line from Peanut Butter by Gwen Guthrie which is sampled in this most famous early house track by N-Joi. Anthem came out in 1991 to blow up everywhere and I was one of the first to get addicted to that famous line sung by Gwen Guthrie. Boy I sure didn’t know at the time that it was a sample being used in that track but later when I found out about it was like I like both tracks. Gwen Guthrie’s 80s sounding funk/hi-nrg style dance sound and of course the house classic by N-Joi. Peanut Butter is off of Gwen Guthrie’s album Portrait. Anthem originally a single in 91 later on the album Inside Out by N-Joi.

  5. Broke by Sneaky Fox Samples Groove Is In The Heart by Deee-Lite


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Here’s a fun bouncy track that does a great job at sampling Deee-Lite’s hit from the early 90s, Groove Is In The Heart. The track Broke basically uses a loop of the main beat/bassline from Groove Is In The Heart and adds some touches of Latin influenced beats and makes it into a cool fun lounge style upbeat cut. Sneaky Fox has other cool cuts that are certainly worth checking into when you have a chance. So once I heard this cut I’m sure more interested in what else they’ve released!

  6. The Dynamics Cover Curtis Mayfield With Move On Up!


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    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.

  7. Baby (Clock Opera Remix) by The Phenomenal Handclap Band

    Whenever there’s a remix album from a band I’m usually first in line to get it. Well I’m happy I did here as I love all the great remixes from The Phenomenal Handclap Band’s phenomenal first self titled album called simply Remixes. My favorite remix off the Remix album is Baby (Clock Opera Remix). The original is a 60s inspired soul/R&B number and the remix has been given a dreamy electro treatment. Check out both below and def check out the cool remix album. Remixes from Munk, Coco Elektrik, Fujiya and Miyagi among others for your listening pleasure. I highly recommend it owning the entire Phenomenal Handclap Band’s remixed album for all the cool remixes of their original music from their first self title album.

  8. A Bit Patchy by Switch


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

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

  9. Nick Muir Covers Chaka Khan’s Ain’t Nobody


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Well I’m really loving this cover, remake or whatever you want to call it. Nick Muir has taken the funk soul classic by Rufus and Chaka Khan and made it an all instrumental progressive house electronic cut. Anything is possible and I love it when a song from one defining genre is taken and remade into a complete other style of song. Makes for more unique listening pleasures. What do you think of this remake?

    Nick Muir goes back to the late 90s progressive house and trance sound and he is often associated with John Digweed and the Bedrock label. Once you hear Ain’t Nobody you will realize that trademark sound that’s known as the Bedrock label sound. This is highly recommended and I have not seen an official release of Ain’t Nobody but I found this on a really cool CD called Uncovered. Well worth owning for all the really cool covers and remakes of old songs! Nick Muir is also know for the track from the 90s called Rock Star by Marshall Stax. Remember that???

    If you love your disco really sexy, hot and groovy then this cut which is a special Re-Edit from this awesome rare disco compilation called Disco Love by Al Kent is your cup of tea.

I love it and it’s one of those rare disco hits that most folks will not know about and that’s makes this even more special. This compilation is not your typical I Will Survive or YMCA disco compilation. Those hits are a dime a dozen the cuts on this collection are just too special. Very, very worth it. Do check it out and get it.

    Destroy-Rock-And-Roll-Remix-Jackson-Five-Portrait

    ABC by The Jackson 5 is a pretty fun song and this is a very fun remix of ABC by The Jackson 5 in the style of Fatboy Slim and even Pizzicato 5. This one is remixed by Konishi Yasuharu and it’s lively, energetic and groovy and I think it’s suits the song very well because it has a very 70s remix style to it. This remix is from the Soul Source – The Jackson 5 Remixes 2 CD that came out back in 2000 or 2001. 2 CD’s of Jackson Five remixes! Rare discs that you might find somewhere used or new maybe and well worth owning if you can find them and you are into remixes.The CD is a Japanese Import so might still be available some places I would snatch it up if you find it.

  14. Lady Marmalade by Lords Of Acid


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Hey who doesn’t love the Labelle disco funk hit Lady Marmalade? It’s a pretty darn big hit from the disco era and it’s still pretty popular today. I love this remake though from Lords Of Acid. They have made it into a sleazy industrial electrofied version. A bit cheesy at some points when the moaning comes in (ok that’s signature Lords Of Acid) but the beats are pretty darn cool still. This remake is 10 years old … wow time flies but I think it’s still got legs. It doesn’t sound too dated.

  15. Champagne by Motorfunk


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I absolutely love this track. It’s from a not very well known act from the very late 90s and early this decade called Motorfunk. They might be French but I could be wrong probably from the UK.

    I found this cut off of The Dirty House Session mixed CD by Groove Armada. It’s a free disc that came with my favorite magazine of the mid to late 90s called Muzik. Lot’s of great reviews and features of awesome electronic and dance music. The magazine folded around 2003 or so but this mix is one of their great mixes that came with the magazine. I have several of the mixes and I do enjoy listening to them still every once in a while.

    The track Champagne is basically sampling the Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King track Love Come Down. You kind of get that because it’s called Champagne. I kind had to listen twice to figure it out at first. I just didn’t know where the track from but I put two and two together and voila it turned out to be Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King! I absolutely dig this track because Evelyn’s version is so early 80s funk dance but this version by Motorfunk is so fast and ready for todays clubs. Even though it’s several years old now it’s still sounds fresh! I can still hear it at any hopping club.

    Check out the video with Evelyn singing Love Come Down. I absolutely love her hair. Don’t you think?

    And a live version which I think it’s from Solid Gold?? Maybe?

  16. Muhammed Ali by Faithless

    I love this track. Faithless have taken a classic soul/disco track Strategy by Archie Bell and the Drells and sampled it to perfection and have made it the perfect background music to a wonderful soul/ funk track with a nice chill vibe. It’s perfection actually. And Maxi Jazz’s lyrics and signing works great here too.

    I tried to find the video on youtube and I did find it but SONY/BMG had disabled embedding so we wont be seeing it here. If you feel like it check it out on youtube! But you got the great songs below! Both are great!

  17. Nasty Girl (Full Mix) by Inaya Day


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Born again Christian, Vanity’s songs were sexy and risque back when they came out and most of them are pretty forgettable today but I still dig Nasty Girl as it’s a great track. This update by Inaya Day is pretty good also. It’s sped up a bit and it’s more of an electronic electro-dance track compared to the Prince produced funk/dance track of the original.

    I found Inaya Day’s version of Nasty Girl on Hed Kandi’s Disco Kandi 05.04 – a great collection of discoish electronic dance club tracks. It’s one of the better collections of music anyone can buy. Do check it out.

    Check them out as their quite unique on their own. What do you think of the two?
