Various artists - Christmas Remixed
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Various artists - Christmas Remixed Another way to put a new spin on holiday classics—literally, in this case—is to for DJs and remixers to deconstruct and reassemble them, complete with scratches and breakbeats. Rise Ashen’s Brazilian mix of Johnny Mercer’s “Winter Wonderland” injects a sunny samba flavor into the old snowy favorite, while Attaboy’s thudding house party take on Bing Crosby’s “The First Noel” and Robbie Hardkiss’ rocking remix of Duke Ellington’s “Jingle Bells” are guaranteed to liven up the dullest office party. Cool yule.
