A remix of the Don Henley song, just spooling out the opening groove that’s so good.

Do You Wanna Funk (Perkowitz Mix)

Patrick Cowley, who produced the original, was a dance music genius.

I Can’t Go For That (Perkowitz Mix)

I Can’t Go For That (Perkowitz Mix)

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.

Into the Groove (Perkowitz Mix)

Into the Groove (Perkowitz Mix)

I had forgotten what good grooves this song had. Plus great use of the 707/727 combo.

Jump (for my Love)

Jump (for my Love)

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.

Looking from a Hilltop (Perkowitz Dub)

Looking from a Hilltop (Perkowitz Dub)

Had to give this song another remix, featuring the killer 808 loop from Stephen Morris’s Retrofit remix front and center.

Looking from a Hilltop (Perkowitz Mix)

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.

Oh Sheila (Perkowitz Mix)

Ready for the World had some great drum programming, on this and other songs. Must have it.

Separate Ways (Perkowitz Mix)

Separate Ways (Perkowitz Mix)

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.

Sunglasses

Sunglasses

Not really a remix of “Sunglasses at Night”, but a heavy borrowing. My goal was a to create a track with a nice groove that would seem vaguely familiar when played out but then become really familiar as the track went on.

The Glamorous Life (Perkowitz Clean)

The Glamorous Life (Perkowitz Clean)

Basically the same as my first remix, but with the vocals left untreated, so people can sing along when you play it.

The drums on the original are irresistible, so I had to remix it.

Time

Time

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.

Too Much Time On My Hands (Perkowitz Mix)

Too Much Time On My Hands (Perkowitz Mix)

I heard this on the radio a couple weeks ago and the opening synth line is irresistible.
