HOW GOOD IS THIS!!!??? – NUMBER 11

This came out about 2 years ago, so is nothing new, but it is however one of the finest remix/mash-ups going in my opinion. I love it and just in case you don’t yet own it, you can now love it too. Ahhh…

I beleive there are rules to a really good remix, mash-up or cover. You have to get something new from it. I believe it has to twist the original song into something fresh. Like a good cocktail, the original ingredients may individually be perfectly consumable, but mixed well they perform a whole new sensation.

Great examples could be MGMT‘s ‘Kids‘ recently remixed by Soulwax at one end of the spectrum, or the cover of Nine Inch Nails‘ ‘Hurt‘ by Johnny Cash at the other. Both created something outstanding.

The remix I list below is a blend of a Kanye West track, ‘Get Em high’ and The Knife‘s ‘Heartbeats‘, all chopped up by the fantastic A-Trak. He is the DJ and all-round master turntablist for Kanye on tour. We love all three of them.

Enjoy.
