I had forgotten what good grooves this song had. Plus great use of the 707/727 combo.
Basically the same as my first remix, but with the vocals left untreated, so people can sing along when you play it.
Patrick Cowley, who produced the original, was a dance music genius.
The drums on the original are irresistible, so I had to remix it.
Ready for the World had some great drum programming, on this and other songs. Must have it.
I heard this on the radio a couple weeks ago and the opening synth line is irresistible.
The synth line on this song just demanded a remix. I had trouble making the rest of it work, but it’s worth it for the synth line.
The Pointer Sisters sure knew how to create a groove. I just took some of my favorite bits of this song and played around with them.
Kriss Kross and House of Pain play surprisingly well together, but getting Van Halen into the party was a little harder. It was worth the effort though.
A house track from 1999 remixed a little in line with my 2011 sensibilities.
More beat-heavy remix of the Rachel Stevens song, highlighting the trademark distorted 808.
Remix of the great Rachel Stevens song.
The lyrics were inspired by an especially poetic spam email, and I’m not quite sure what it became.
Had to give this song another remix, featuring the killer 808 loop from Stephen Morris’s Retrofit remix front and center.
Remix of one of Section 25’s best-known (and most-sampled) tracks. I combined a couple of the original mixes with some great grooves from Stephen Morris’s recent remix.
Another Section 25 remix, this one (mostly) removing vocals I didn’t like and focusing on a nice groove.
I took two minute-long tracks from Section 25’s album “Nature + Degree” and spun them out into this.

This song combines three rare things for me: vocals I sang, lyrics I wrote, and layered melodies with pop-song structure. The basic song came together fairly quickly, but it took a while to finish the writing and get all the vocals recorded.
A remix of the Hall & Oates classic. I had forgotten what a great groove it had at the beginning until I heard it at a wedding recently. So I had to extend out that groove and then do some chopping and filtering on the rest.
A vocal song with lyrics and arrangement inspired by early New Order (working off of one of my favorite Sumner lines ever, “here I am in a house full of doors and no exits”). One of few songs I’ve ever written original lyrics for. Also by far the shortest song I’ve ever recorded, at a radio-friendly 3:32.
