  1. 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!

  2. Sweet Dreams (Avicii Swede Dreams Mix) by Avicii Covers Eurythmics


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I love my remakes and this one is a really nice one by Avicii covering the Eurythmics classic 80s song Sweet Dreams! It’s definitely a bouncy, upbeat housed up club version of the Eurythmics synth pop classic. I love how the robotic vocodered vocals come in and with the big beats it’s really nice and grooving. I’ve heard many remakes and remixes in the past of the Eurythmics Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) but I have to say this version by Avicii is the best one I’ve heard so far.

    If you like Sweet Dreams by Avicii then you should check out more by Avicii. His sound is totally now and perfect club music. Avicii is from Sweden and he’s remixed loads of acts like Dizzee Rascal, Robyn, Tim Berg, Daft Punk, Bob Sinclar and many more. Check his other remixes as I’m sure you will dig!

    Check out a lounge version of Sweet Dreams by Senor Coconut here. Even electro godless Miss Kittin has covered Sweet Dreams! Emily Browning even sang a version for the SuckerPunch soundtrack that just came out a couple of months ago. It’s cool! It’s more dreamy, operatic and cinematic you know perfect for a movie!

  3. DMX Krew Covers Soft Cell With Seedy Films


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Seedy Films along with Tainted Love, Sex Dwarf, Bedsitter and Say Hello, Wave Goodbye are excellent songs off of the now classic early 80s release Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret by Soft Cell. Soft Cell’s version is the perfect cut as part of the Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret album. It’s got a very sleazy, minimal sound and it’s dark and perfectly seedy as the title suggests. The album Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret is the soundtrack for the dark seedy underworld of downtown life. Unfortunately most folks know of Soft Cell for their cover of the Gloria Jones northern soul classic song Tainted Love. But anyone who’s a fan of Tainted Love should check out the album the song comes off of as it’s highly recommended by me!

    I was lucky enough to hear this new remake cover version of Seedy Films by DMX Krew about 10 years ago. The song has been given the new upbeat electro pop treatment and the darkness has been stripped that’s on the Soft Cell version. Whereas the Soft Cell version is perfect off their classic album this remake by DMX Krew works perfectly on it’s own. I still enjoy this remake by DMX Krew and listen to it every so often. If you haven’t heard of it then it’s time you should enjoy it too. Links below!

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 40 Thieves Featuring Qzen Covers Hot Chocolate With Don’t Turn It Off


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I didn’t realize that this was a cover until I heard this songs several times. This is a very smooth, sexy and slightly upbeat version of Hot Chocolates Don’t Turn It Off sung by a lady, Qzen aka Susan Langan of 40 Thieves. This version is current with today’s nu disco sound and it’s a perfect version for sexy cocktail sipping at the hottest bars or cocktail parties at home with your sexy friends. It’s also perfect for walks and working out. I don’t really know much about 40 thieves but I did hear this off of a Greg Wilson mix CD, Credit To The Edit of disco and nu disco hits all mixed together. Was worth checking out to see what else 40 Thieves had done but not much more except for this awesome single Don’t Turn It Off covering Hot Chocolate.

    For Hot Chocolate this is certainly not You Sexy Thing but it’s a nice mellower disco number from them from 1979 but 40 Thieves have perfected her. A Permanent Vacation release. Check out both versions below.

  9. 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.

  10. Sunglasses At Night (Alter Ego Remix) by Tiga & Zyntherius


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Corey Hart’s Sunglasses At Night is the perfect pop song to be featured in shows like Miami Vice or games like the GTA – Vice City. It’s the perfect synth pop song bordering on cheesyness with a very pastel Miami or LA coolness to it. It’s classic! Well it was perfectly reproduced or remade here by Tiga & Zyntherius. First released in 2002 then remixed and rereleased last year with tons of great new versions or remixes of the Tiga & Zyntherius version of the Corey Hart classic 80s song Sunglasses At Night.

    Tiga put himself on the map with the first release of Sunglasses At Night back in 2002. He was part of that electroclash movement and still continues to produce nice electro/dance music that I still listen to and occasionally remixing someone like Cabaret Voltaire or Miike Snow. The second half, Zyntherius is actually Jori Hulkkonen who’s music I also love too. So this combo of the two of them made for a nice collab and release of the Corey Hart classic synth pop track back in 2002. It was so good I suppose it deserved an extra round of remixes 8 years later. The first release included one great remix Naughty’s 42 Da Floor Remix which was nice and of course the original is great.

    Last year the remixes were by Alter Ego, DIM, Black Devil Disco Club, Popof and Konrad Black. A great package with pretty nice lengthy remixes of the Tiga & Zyntherius version of Sunglasses At Night. Below is the entire list and worth checking out as there are some really nice remixes from really cool acts. Check them out below!

  11. 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!

  12. Coco Electrik Covers Apollonia 6 With Sex Shooter

    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.

  13. Tom’s Diner (Radio Edit) by Bingo Players


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I always like an update. I don’t like it when folks complain about things being changed and screwing up with the original. Well I say screw with things as much as you can. I love it when music is remixed, movies remade, books made into movies, movies made into TV shows and so on. This remake is a good example of the Bingo Players having a good old fun time remaking the DNA featuring Suzanne Vega dance pop smash from 1990. I think Suzanne had originally released the song back in 1987 and DNA remixed it secretly and she fell in love with it and the rest was history because I think it was her biggest hit next to Luka! Anyways this is fun, poppy but keeping it in true Bingo Players progressive house style. Enjoy both below.

    Blank & Jones having taken the LaTour classic dance track from 20 years ago and have remade updated it for now. I do remember when the It’s kept in their traditional style even the vocals sound pretty similar although I like LaTour’s vocals much better especially since he was a voice over actor and it’s obvious. This version is quite cool and the CD single/digital download has several remixes so they are all worth it for any of you dance/club/house/trance heads. Much worth it so check out their other remixes by clicking on the album cover below. I don’t think this remake will be as big as their remake of the Cure classic A Forest but still definitely worth it.

  15. Moonbootica Cover House Of Pain’s Jump Around!


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This is a pretty awesome electrofied remake of the House Of Pain hip hop classic from the early 90s! Dark, sleazy electro beats with robotic vox. It’s quite nice and I love it when they take such a classic track from a genre and remake the hell out of it which is what Moonbootica have done here. Good for them! I first heard of Moonbootica with a remix of Tessio the Luomo track from 2001 or so. Later they exploded with a remix of Mundian To Bach Ke the Punjabi MC bhangra hit. So they’ve been remixing for a while now and this track is certainly a solid remake. This remake goes back to 2007 so it’s already a bit old but still fresh sounding. As we approach the 20th anniversary of the House of Pain classic Jump Around this will make do for us as it’s certainly the future in sound.

    If you like their sound you should also check out their release Men Of The Future. It’s quite a nice electro/disco cut and certainly worth hearing it on repeat. It’s quite the sexy, late night groove.

  17. Lily Allen Covers Mr. Blue Sky by ELO (Electric Light Orchestra)


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Ran across this awesome compilation series from France called La Musique De Paris Derniere. I believe these are compilations from a French TV show but I would need to do some research first to be correct. These compilations contain remakes, remixes of well known songs. Including this unreleased version of a very bouncy, poppy Lily Allen remake of the ELO classic Mr. Blue Sky. It’s fun and the recording is in her typical style. So if you’re a fan of Lily Allen then this is right up your alley. Check them both out below. And do check out the series as there are 7 discs now and all are fun. I love them. There remakes of so many songs you are familiar with I’m sure. Including:

    Beat Goes On
    Light My Fire
    I Can’t Get No Satisfaction
    Dancing Queen
    Happy Together
    Can’t Take My Eyes Off You
    Ashes To Ashes
    What A Wonderful World
    Space Oddity
    The Girl From Ipanema
    Like A Virgin
    Highway To Hell
    Walk On By
    Proud Mary
    Hotel California
    Billie Jean
    Da Ya Think I’m Sexy
    Tainted Love

    And many, many more remakes by lesser known acts, new bands old ones etc. So I highly recommend these compilations click the album artwork below to download more tracks from this great series called La Musique De Paris Derniere.
