What are the best remixes that change your perspective of the original,as in being exposed to the hidden dynamics of the original that went unnoticed until hearing the remix? Right now the only one that comes to mind is Kruder and Dorfmeister's remix of Depeche Mode's Useless

The K+D DM remix is ace. If i remember rightly, a friend of mine taped me the Cypress Hill mix of Bug Powder Dust and I assumed it was the original for ages, even now I think it's far better.

The Chemical Brothers' remix of Prodigy's "Voodoo People" (from manic superfire beats to a loping, almost dub-like funk). Daft Punk's remix of the Chemical Brothers' "Life Is Sweet" (from pulsing techno-power- pop to trance/house deconstruction). The Neptunes' remix of Daft Punk's "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" (from awesome to awesomer).

the kevin shields mix of if they move kill em by primal scream is one of my favourite pieces of music ever...i hadnt really payed much attention to the original before i heard it,and while i like it now i think the remix is infinitely better.

Last remix that totally changed my view on the original material is Missy E - Basement Jaxx. I like the manic druggy vibe it exudes.

I'd add Massive Attack's remix of PRML SCRM's "Exterminator" (perhaps because the intent of the track was something a lot closer to Massive Attack despite Gillespie's affectations . . .)

& a fair proportion of the Mad Professor's remix work for Massive Attack works as well.
(& what Glenn McDonald said about the MA remix of the Manic's "IYTTYCWBN" here still holds as some of the best writing on a remix I've encountered, and is v. OTM).

Larry Levan's 12-inch mix of Instant Funk's "I've Got My Mind Made Up" made it a classic it hadn't heretofore been. Same goes for Armand Van Helden's work on Tori Amos's "Professional Widow" and Sneaker Pimps' "Spin Spin Sugar"; Everything But the Girl, "Missing (Todd Terry Club Mix)"; Marley Marl's remix of L.L. Cool J's "Jingling Baby"; Todd Edwards's remixes of Mantra's "Away" and St. Germain's "Alabama Blues"; Tuff Jam's mix of Kristine Blond's "Loveshy"; Pete Rock's rework of Public Enemy's "Shut 'Em Down"; Timo Maas's "Dooms Night" remix. I know of a few folks (e.g. Jess and Simon Reynolds) who'd call the Foul Play VIP mix of Omni Trio's "Renegade Snares" (which to be honest was pretty great already) the best single of the '90s. And I think Norman Cook's remix of Cornershop's "Brimful of Asha" is as good as the original, which for me is saying a lot.

the ninos dream remix of the house crews euphoria. nino takes a really mediocre track, turns it into the best single ever made...

There's a remix of the Beasties' "Negotiation Limerick File" by someone called 38 Star State. Absolutely brilliant, sounds like a tank is running over your stereo.

Judd Nelson, Thursday, 16 May 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

Lessee, the Automator remix of Stereolab's "Miss Modular" made me actually kind of like the original, but I think that may be the added hooks of the remix are what grab me and this not a hidden part of the remixed song or anything. The Funkstorung remixes of the Bjork's "All is Full of Love" are also significant improvements, but again the original is a kind of a eh ballad and the remixes (esp. the one on the maxi-single) just sound entirely different (broken beats with cut up vocal bitses).

I'm such an old fogey--I still think Shep Pettibone's remixes of all the Madonna singles from *Like a Prayer* are truly marvellous. The album version's are so lame in comparison. "Express Yourself", for instance, sounds like really sub-sub-par Sly Stone on the album, whereas the remix is just so massively bottom-ended-out and in your face ("C'mon girls! Do you believe in love? 'Cos I got something to say about it!"). Anyone know what's happened to Pettibone since? (Other than producing the *Erotica* album?)

s woods, Thursday, 16 May 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

The DJ Falcon remix of La Mouche by Cassius which is the greatest piece of music ever.

Ronan, Thursday, 16 May 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

There was a period in time when seeing the name Shep Pettibone would send me running from the record store. I *LOATHED* his remixes; in fact, I blame him for making _Introspective_-era Pet Shop Boys almost unlistenable.

I need to think a little bit before I list my own remixes. The Armand Van Helden remix of "Spin Spin Sugar" is fantastic, though. Also, people should check out the Wild Pitch mix of "I Wouldn't Normally Do This Kind Of Thing".

Dan Perry, Thursday, 16 May 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

I'm just curious, Dan--what did you loathe about them?

s woods, Thursday, 16 May 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

I'm hard-pressed to come up with an answer to that. Let me think about it some and answer later...

Dan Perry, Thursday, 16 May 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

I ask, actually, because it's been ages since I've listened to any of these, and who knows, I might not be as convinced as I used to be. (But I'd rather someone tell me why than take the time to go listen for myself.) Funny, I always found his work with the Pet Shop Boys far less convincing--he received such major kudos for "West End Girls," but I never understood what the big deal was. It really was all about Shep & Madonna for me.

But speaking of PSB--Trevor Horn's remix of "Left to My Own Devices" might actually be my all-time #1.

s woods, Thursday, 16 May 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

My favorite is the set of "Angel" remixes by Goldie, Grooverider, Dillinja et al. You can watch the development from hardcore to jungle in those tracks, but what I really like about them is the way a small group of people obsessively reworked the same breaks and sounds over and over again, passing them from one person to the next. It's like taking the remix to the next level as a conceptual suite (or something). I put all the tracks together the other day--pretty mindblowing. The sequence goes something like this:

Rufige Cru--Sinister

Grooverider--Sinister Remix

Doc Scott--Dark Angel


Dillinja--The Angels Fell

Goldie--Saint Angel

Peshay--Angel (Back from Nam mix)

Goldie--Dark Metal

Source Direct--Dark Metal remix

Ben Williams, Thursday, 16 May 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

Oh, forgot to mention that the "Angel" theme encompasses the whole ecstasy/agony dynamic that jungle pivoted on.

Tracer Hand, Thursday, 16 May 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

hmmm, I'm pretty sure *Erotica* was the first thing Pettibone actually *produced* by Madonna...he did some remixes for her here and there (but none of the early albums were under his production).

I can't believe I forgot this: "American Wasteland" by Beck. "Devil's Haircut" gone hardcore punk (the yelled version of the chorus at the end replaces the normal chorus throughout the song). Also contains the tail end of some hilariously bad hardcore song ("Barney Miller was a cop, Barney Miller was a cop... he's dead!").

Nate Patrin, Thursday, 16 May 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

dan, re: the psb introspective era, my mouth is moving - no words are coming out.

piscesboy, Thursday, 16 May 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

It's worse than you know, Piscesboy. Dan, poor lad, seems to think "Left To My Own Devices" is a bad song. Sad, really.

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 16 May 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

"Left To My Own Devices" has one of the worst choruses ever. Do I really have to go through my list of why _Introspective_ is awful again? Because I will, in great, painful detail.

Madonna + Shep may be the only combo that I think has actively worked for me, and even there things like his remix of "Express Yourself" are unforgivably wrong.

Dan Perry, Thursday, 16 May 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

First choice would have to be the Kruder and Dorfmeister remix of Lamb's Transfatty Acid (on K&D sessions), but I would also recommend Kruder's remix of B. Gilberto's Tanto Tempo, the Dorfmeister rework of Inside by Funky Lowlives, Dorfmeister's massive job on Groove Armada's My Friend, and another Kruder cut, the remix of Fauna Flash's Tel Aviv.

Someone mentioned Cornershop's Brimful of Asha, which was brilliantly remixed by the Sofa Surfers into a deep dub track that echoes in my brain...

Also, just about anything that Matthew Herbert remixes instantly becomes a lot better, and another dude named Patrick Pulsinger out of Vienna is really hot -- the Pulsinger/Tunakan remix of Tosca's Fuck Dub is awesome (Tosca is actually Dorfmeister's side project, making this post suitably tunnel-visioned).

An entire album of worthwhile remixes: Re-colored by Nils Peter Molvaeer features Herbert, the Herbaliser and more...

Last but not least, much love to Charles Webster, whose Love from San Francisco made many great remixes, especially one by some group called Super Discount.

Martin, Thursday, 16 May 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

Yeah s woods I should have said remixed... every 12" inlcuding "Borderline" has a Shep Pettibone remix on it and i frickin love em, ESPECIALLY the Express Yourself mix... Give in to it, Dan! Give in to your inner Shep Pettibone!!

The Coldcut remix of “Paid in Full” by Eric B. & Rakim.

It tore up every club I was in when it came out. Exposed many to Ofra Haza for the first time, and for many has become the definitive version of the song as opposed to the original.

Don't know if this counts as a remix but remember back in high school the 12 inch of Bizarre Love Triangle didn't leave my turntable for a solid month.

H, Friday, 17 May 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

It maybe doesn't count as it's a mix by the original artist, but DJ Pierre's Wild Pitch mix of Photon Inc's "Generate Power" is utter genius. Possibly the finest build-up and crescendo ever created in dance music.
Special mention also to the MK mix of Nightcrawlers' "Push the feeling on" for taking the (meaningless) vocal and then making it incomprehensible. I loved this little trick - everyone knew that what was said in a house lyric was kind of irrelevant and for MK to just fuck about with it like that was a total release. Did Todd Edwards do it first? Can't remember. Anyway, UK garage does this all the time now, but I still like the first one.

the 12 inch of new order's bizarre love triangle is their own remix though isn't it ? anyway, wasn't ofra haza on MARRS' 'pump up the volume' first or was that a soundalike ?

The Hardfloor mix of "Circus Bells" by Robert Armani deserves a mention here. I accidentally bought a Robert Armani best-of with this song on it and it wasn't till I got home that I realized it was the original...! * bites tongue *

Tracer Hand, Friday, 17 May 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

Matos is OTM for me - Van Helden particularly transformed things by acts I didn't like at all into great dance records, and the Timo Maas Dooms Night and Fatboy Slim Brimful Of Asha are among the distinguished and impressive remixes that have utterly supplanted the original - almost everyone mentioning those titles means these remixes. Another old favourite that's not been mentioned is the Scratch Perverts' job on Jonny L's 20 Degrees. I usually find it hard to hear drum & bass remixes as remixes - they often sound like entirely new tracks. Does anyone else feel like that, or is this incomprehensible?

Dillinja's remix of Kevin 'Reese' Saunderson's "Just Another Chance"
aka "Deadly Deep Subs" in its VIP mix (found on Ultrasound's This Is Jungle comp)

Groove Chronicles' (well just Lewis 'El-B' Beadle, supposedly) reconstruction of Aaliyah's "One In A Million"
aka "Stone Cold"

both... are there even words for it?
well, vertiginous bass and it's the same sound i think (from "Just Another Chance")

Paul, Friday, 17 May 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

one year passes...
I heard "Brimful Of Asha" again today, and I'm a
conscientious objector to the remix. It doesn't ruin
the song but it doesn't really improve it - all Cook
did was loop a few things to make it longer. It's
not even more danceable, since it uses the
original drum track. It's just not a neccesary

Everything I've ever heard Cornelius remix has been nothing short of astounding & lovely. I want him to do at least one disgusting dirty-ass remix of something eventually.

nick - don't ever hear his Moby mix.

Dan, that TS is easy for me - they're on the same single and I'll play the hell out of the Chem remixes (vocal and instro-edit) and occasionally neglect the Prodigy one.

The Dust Brothers have some grate ones - Len - 'Feelin' Alright', Money Mark - 'Cry', Sukia - 'Gary Super Macho', Beck - 'Dark And Lovely', They Might Be Giants - 'Snail Shell', Squirrel Nut Zipper's 'The Suits Are Picking Up The Bill', the excellent April March mixes, the *classic* two from the Paul's Boutique singles. I even liked their No Doubt remix.

Natural Calamity - 'Home' (Prince Paul remix feat Paul Barman) is one of the best remixes I can name. Why? It pitches up the melancholic nostalgia vibe of the original with a string sample from heaven, uses a break that makes me feel like moving my butt when it shouldn't, creates minor drama during the ever ridiculous Barman rap and has a wonderfully understated piano moment. It has a greater "looks at the world with big child eyes" feel than the original - in other words, what the original nearly suceeded in being. In fact, it's a lot like a slightly twee/slightly nuts Portishead = best thing ever.

On that note, I also recommend Portishead's 'Revenge Of The Number', an in-house remix of 'Numb' that is as sublime as it is hip hopping. This and the abovementioned are sonic cousins. Badly Drawn Boy - 'Once Around The Block' (Nick Faber mix) is another of my favourite 'post-trip hop' songs, but the way the lead melodies andbacking vocals have been rearranged to fit the hip hop break and bassline, it sounds a lot like 80s romo.

Cornelius from '97 - 01 is king remixer.
