El-B's remix of Brotha by Angie Stone and his re-rub of You Make Me Sick by Pink have a killer remix or Try Again by Aaliyah and another of Brandy's What about us but have no clue who they are by - incidentally I also own an ass-ripping d&b mix of Ooops! by Tweet which has dancefloors in absolute uproar whenever I play it - no idea who that's by either!

I've heard way too few of these, but I was really taken with a Brandy/Monika one by ... by I have no idea.

Montell Jordan - This Is How We Do It (Sunship Remix)

That Sisqo remix is k-grebt (haha though I didn't know Sisqo was american).

Ol' Dirty Bastard ft Kelis - Got Your Money (Dee Kline & Ed209 Breakbeat Remix) will probably be more of an . . . acquired taste (& makes you really, really wish "Shimmy Shimmy Ya" had been around circa all those PE/LL-sampling helium-vox rave/ardkore tracks).

sovereign's remix of pink's 'there you go'

Jay K (Jay K), Friday, 18 April 2003 14:18 (nineteen years ago) link

Shola Ama, Mya (the Sovereign mix, right?), Pink, K-ci & Jojo, Sisqo, Aaliyah (there are a few "Try Again" mixes, the Pikachu remix got the most rotation at the time - I think it was Sticky under guise), Brandy & Monica, Ashanti - all seconded, all fantastic stuff.
Few more off the top of my head, will come up with more later perhaps:

Jameson vs Destiny's Child - Bug a Boo
Chante Moore - Straight Up (Sunship Main Mix)
Irv Gotti - Down 4 U (DnD Conemelt Mix)
Jennifer Lopez - Feeling So Good (bootleg by someone anonymous, the sublime backing track later resurfaced on one of the Pretty Boyz' tunes)
Ja Rule feat Ashanti - Always On Time (Agent X Mix)

Dave S, there were quite a few 2-step ones around, but Sticky did an awesome version of "What About Us?" which I had on a sampler and then stupidly lost.

OK, who did that BUSTA remix. If you've heard it you'll know what I'm talking about - it's been on British radio a couple of times this week, and not just the pirates.

four months pass...
big$hot is doing a good line in these recently, softens the dubstep yawn a little tho sometimes they are quite old accapellas and it's a bit "ho ho sellout". i think my fave is his timberlake one, and there's that stomp refix i heard on femme fatale's show with khia's my neck my back on top

The old posts in this thread are a great reminder that ILM pretty much sucked in the pre-YouTube era.

I recall on one of those RBMA talks Arthur Artwork revealed that he did about 50% of all of these bootlegs from the studio above Big Apple in Croydon.
