REMIX artists don’t get nearly enough praise. Their ability to re-interpret a song, and take it to an entirely new dimension of sound, is nothing short of astonishing, in the best of cases. This week’s selection is of 5 artists that absolutely kill it in the remix department.
THE BULGARIAN FT. SPOEK – JACK IT LIKE A ZOMBIE (THE BULGARIAN REWORK)
There’s such a wide variety of versions on the REMIX EP, but it’s THE BULGARIAN’s own re-imagining that takes the prize for “different”. Very cool.

Click the track title, above, to peep a sweet little MUSIC VID. Like this REMIX, it’s simple, but very grimey, and effective. It’s hard to go wrong, when you’re dealin’ with the B-Boys.

CHROMEO FT. ELLY JACKSON – HOT MESS (DUCK SAUCE REMIX)
Chromeo makes the hottest music ever! Hand a tune of theirs to one of the most powerful duos in HOUSE music, today; do you even need to press play to know this is gonna be good?
LOVE THY BROTHER – GET YOUR BACK UP (KID LEGIT REMIX)
I have no idea who KID LEGIT is or how to get in touch with him. If anybody knows him, tell him I said I really like this remix.

SWEEKUH – LIGHTSPEED BACK
One of my favourite MASHUP artists, SWEEKUH, sticks a mighty trill TRAP break into the middle of a filthy ELECTRO banger. Yet another party destroyer from this kid. Dayum!
Now you’re playing with power (Some 80’s commercial always ended with that line. Anybody remember which one?)
