Slowly we approach the end of the third week of the BPMREMIX Contest. While you mix your version of Drop and Roll for the BPMREMIX contest – get some inspiration with bliss’ top 5 favorite remixes:
1. Infernal Machine – Lion King (Man With No Name Remix)
This track was one of my first loves. To this day – shivers go down my spine when it plays. You could say that this track, more than any other track, brought me closer to the world of full-on trance and running bass, combined with melody and psychedelia. The combination of Simon Posford and Dick Trevor (Infernal Machine) with the touch of Martin – were (and still are) divine for me.
2. The Prodigy – Smack My Bitch Up (Noisia Remix)
‘The Prodigy’ has a special place in my heart. They bring me back to childhood realms and.
The Dutch ensemble, ‘Noisia’, continuously impresses me with their fine use of distortion – especially in this song. ‘The Prodigy’ has never sounded so great!
3. The Prodigy – Voodoo People (Pendulum Remix)
Once again – ‘The Prodigy’ – only this time with a super-danceable and super-musical remix.
I like everything Rob Swire (Pendulum) does. He brought a harmonical change to a famous melody, and by doing so, he gave a very cool twist to an immortal track.
4. John Lennon – Love (covered by Cuts)
It’s not exactly a remix, but it is electronic. The familiar song written by the famous Beatle John Lennon is truly touching. However, this new angle gives a refreshing and special atmosphere to the original song. In my eyes, a good remix is one that gives a new proportion to a creation without harming the “poet’s intention”. And here, Mr. Katz from Tivon, surely succeeded.
5. Stimulant Djs – Are You Serious? (Eskimo Remix)
I always liked the playful music of Eskimo, and at the time, I used to play it at my remix Dj’s sets. Junya took a hard-house track (a genre which I don’t particularly connect to), and turned it into a widely relevant monster for the psytrance lovers. In my opinion, merging genres is the ultimate way to create new and interesting sounds that resonate with the audience.
