Remixed With Love Vol.1
Joey Negro & Various Artists
Deadstock, warehouse find. 2-CD – Some CD cases may have small marks on them as they are un-wrapped.
Remixed With Love is Joey Negro’s dream project and most definitely a labour of love. The album features 18 tracks all remixed from original session tapes some more than 30 years old which was “A headache” to source as Joey puts it.
“Often you end up speaking to relatives of the person who actually made the record and unfortunately I heard the line all too often, “I might have a copy of the vinyl somewhere but I definitely don’t know where the master tapes are.”
As a fanatical music collector and enthusiast Joey found himself meeting up with ex-label reps and relatives of the artists leaving no stone unturned – searching through boxes and in lofts. One multitrack was even under the producer’s bed. With such dedication comes results and the result is impressive.
Rather than remixes in their modern definition this is a body of remixes in a re-edit style with the tracks given a new dimension to make them more relevant and playable for today’s dancefloors.
In many cases the drums have been changed, percussion added and sometimes more keyboard parts but he’s not totally ditched the original structure of the music. This project is about utilising some of those fantastic original parts in a different way that takes advantage of many of the songs classic status subtly teasing in familiar elements and dubbing them out.
