Verve Remixed – How can we not have known about this??

There are times in everyone’s life when they go “What? Huh? How the hell have I not heard this? It was released how long ago?”

 

Shakey Times bows its head in shame this afternoon on informing you we’ve only just heard about the Verve Remixed series. We know, we know- don’t you say a word! There is good news; since we’ve finally got round to treating our ears to such delights we haven’t been able to take it off the stereo.

 

All four in the series are brilliant and we urge you desperately to go out and purchase whichever one you can get your hands on first.

 

Centered around the concept of remixing classic Verve tracks by contemporary electronic music producers and DJs. The series features some of our very favorite remixers around including Mr Scruff, Dzihan & Kamien, RJD2, Junior Boys, and Cinematic Orchestra amongst others. How could we not have known about this for so long? *hits head on desk and mumbles ‘Doh’ in a homer like fashion*.

 

(Again)…We cannot recommend them enough.

Ella Fitzgerald – I Get A Kick Out Of You (Cinematic Orchestra remix)

Dinah Washington – Cry Me A River (Truth & Soul Remix)
