  1. Plastic Dreams by Jaydee Remixes!


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Jaydee’s Plastic Dreams is an early 90s tribal trance classic. IT came out with a bang in 1992 and was around for quite sometime. It was one of those early trance tracks that you just couldn’t get enough of. You know Stella by Jam And Spoon, The Age Of Love by The Age Of Love and Plastic Dreams by Jaydee! Before For An Angel by Paul Van Dyk came onto the scene and brought trance to the masses. Then later on in the 90s and the 2000s countless new remixes were commissioned so to this day Plastic Dreams is one of those rare electronic and dance tracks that will never be forgotten about and will continue to receive the remix treatment. The original 1992 version still is classic for me as it has that repetitive ongoing euphoric tribal groove that just wont stop. It’s perfect on extacy. LOL I’m not recommending that you go and dance to this track while you take some E but sure was fun back in the day.

    Anyway fast forward to 2011 and new remixes have been released and they are pretty darn good while keeping the spirit of the original Plastic Dreams by Jaydee. But guess what there were remixes of Plastic Dreams by Jaydee released in 2004 as well that are worth noting.

    One of my favorite remixes of Plastic Dreams by Jaydee is the Plastic Dreams (Andrea Doria “Is It Breaks?” Remix) as that thing kicks like a mule. Oh wait that’s another song but you know what I mean. If you don’t know Andrea Doria then you should check out Bucci Bag!

    In the collection of Plastic Dreams Remixes from 2011 my favorite remix is a tie with Plastic Dreams (Dino Lenny & Amnesia Remix) and Plastic Dreams (Housebangerz feat. Mc Joe Remix). I must say though overall the remixes from 2011 are more along the line of the original Plastic Dreams versus the 2004 Remixes collection of Plastic Dreams by Jaydee which were more banging and big beats. What do you think?

  2. 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!

  3. 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. If you can get the double disc CD release even better as you have some great additional remixes or versions of cuts from the amazing Leftism album.

  4. Hypocrisy (John Digweed & Nick Muir Remix) by Abe Duque


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This is a case where I love the original just as much as the remix that John Digweed & Nick Muir have concocted. The original is deep dark and very tribal sounding. The remix takes me back to Global Underground mix CD series territory when big mega clubs were huge and folks would go to dance all night long. I’m loving both versions and I think it’s worth knowing more about this guy Abe Duque. The original is taken from the Don’t Be So Mean album from last year.
