Here are three beats that would make sweet re-edits, and the DJs I’d like to remix them.
These songs are spectacular as they are (especially #3) and don’t need edits, but these remixers do some fantastic work, so I’d be interested to hear what they would do with this stuff.
1. Tie My Hands (Instrumental) – Lil Wayne (Featuring Robin Thicke)
It’s always hard for me to stop replaying this loop.
2. Ghost Dog Opening Theme – RZA (W/Dogs & EFX)
After the first time I saw this movie, I never stopped playing this intro theme. I’m still listening to it.
3. I’ve Been Thinking – Handsome Boy Modeling School (Featuring Cat Power)
A colleague and I have spent a total of 423 hours IMing each other the lyrics to this song, interspersed with random work-related bits.
Here are my top 6 candidates for remixing these songs, and why:
1. Late Nite Tuff Guy (LNTG)
2. Mark E
Because this shit’s got the spirit of what I’m talking about:
3. Todd Terje
Cuz his Roxy Music remix is a sweet dirty funk. He does a good Jolene by Dolly Parton too. Not to mention his Horse With No Shame. And I thought there was a Back Door Man remix of his out there but I can’t find it.
4. Prins Thomas and/or Lindstrom
Cuz whatever they did to this Chemical Brothers song is genius, the way it makes your spirit soar. Their Boney M Down is awesome too, as is a lot of what they do.
Listen to what these cats did with Minnie Riperton’s Inside My Love. The way they tease that guitar out:
I Don’t Want This Groove to Ever End (and many others) is (are) super sweet too:
What do you want to hear remixed? Who should do the edits?
Am I crazy for wanting someone to do something with Foreigner’s I Want to Know What Love Is?
