Classics Remixed

Janet Jackson – “Go Deep” [The Remixes]

 

For the past week or so I’ve been listening\revisiting Janet Jackson’s 1997, critically-praised dark masterpiece “The Velvet Rope.” One of her most daring album’s at the time. Topics covered on the album ranged from sexual bondage, domestic violence, bisexuality and homophobia to the examination of self-worth, depression and the celebration of loved ones who’ve passed away. “The Velvet Rope” debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, charted in the top 5 of many other countries, was Janet’s fourth consecutive #1 album in the US, and went on to triple-platinum status in the US, with total worldwide sales of over 10 million copies! The record is also listed on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time!

Although it’s really tough to choose one favorite song from the album, ‘Go Deep’ has to be one I connected with the most. It’s simply a fun, sexy track with no particular message other than having a good time, feeling good about yourself, dancing at your favorite spot and finding someone hot to groove with.

So, below are some amazing ‘Go Deep’ remixes I think will satisfied each and everyone of you out there that happens to love this song as much as I do. My personal favorites being the Shoe Scene Symphony, Tchami and Robert Mint remixes.

Enjoy!

Róisín Murphy – “Primitive” [ItaloBros Remix]

 

Electro-pop-dance Diva, Roisin Murphy’s 2007 album, ‘Overpowered’ has to be one of the best pop-dance records ever recorded. Yet, for some reason, the album failed to reach a commercial success. WHY? I’ll never know.

The chill, laid-back groovy track, “Primitive,” is one of the tracks from the album that has always screamed for a remix. Though there have been a few takes on the track, it is Italian production duo, italoBros that receives our highest praise.

The eclectic duo has masterfully infused the original track with a deep-house vibe that doesn’t strain too far from the groovy feel of the original. The 90′s dance-house beats in combination with Murphy’s smoky, sensual vocals take the disco-laden, “Primitive” from the cozy-surroundings of your bedroom into the spinning, neon-filled lights of a club’s dancefloor.

Take a listen and download below!

Vanity 6 – “Nasty Girl” [Hardcore Math User Remix]

 

Vanity 6cover

So we’re are back with another cool remix for our “Classics Remixed” section of the blog. This time I bring you the Prince penned classic, “Nasty Girl” by his protégé girl group Vanity 6. This sexy R&B jam was released back in 1982 and still sounds as good and fresh today as it did 30 years ago!

A funny thing about this song is that Lead singer Vanity, who is now a Christian preacher, has denounced the song and told the members of her congregation who listen to “Nasty Girl” to “keep praying for the Holy Spirit”. LOL.

Grab a copy of the Hardcore Math User remix below.

enjoy!
