Remixes, reworks, edits…it’s very technical business knowing what’s what in the art of reinterpreting someone else’s music. A lot depends on how the original song has been sampled, chopped up or altered, but the art remains the same: presenting a piece of music in a new and interesting way. Here’s 25 tracks that have inspired us on that front, from afrobeat to soul, turkish disco to latin, deep house to techno and yes…even Eric Prydz.
To help you digest it all in one go, we’ve collected them all into one Mixcloud mix, going for a sonic progression rather than an arbitrary order of preference. Grab the full tracklist inside the player and also listen to as many we could find on a Soundcloud playlist too.
