    A classic doesn´t "deserve" a makeover.

    Somebody probably does it and then it turns out to be good or mediocre.

    lol i knew this comment would come

    still, some classics are really good but can use a makeover (soundwise, mastering) to sound better in the mix nowadays

    Oh, I agree with that.

    And there are also a lot of tunes that I would love to have as a mp3.

    But I have never listened to a classic tune thinking it must be refixed or updated. Now being a producer, the approach of course is slightly different.

    In the end, if somebody does it, fine..or not :teeth:

    there's also the Alix Perez remix of Future Cut - Whiplash which I would love to have. Also seen a few videos from Exit nights with a Metropolis remix being played - maybe another Perez remix as he's the one playing it I think

    Im sure I heard a heist remix of Dr s gachet - remember the roller recently which was pretty tidy. But in general I agree.

    There have been some abominable efforts too

    This one springs to mind...




    Absolute face palm at that drop. just before it comes they slip in about 2 bars from the original. Apart from that this has nothing to do with bad ass

    Saw Toddla T play in Leeds earlier this year and he dropped what sounded like a rework of Incredible by M-Beat and General Levy, sounds pretty well made and I'd love to hear it again.

    I've always wanted a remastered version of Song Seller by Klute. The mix down isn't great.

    ^ bucking the trend for hating on modern remixes I always thought a Calibre remix of that would be proper...

    Would love a remix of 'The End 2' by Fortran. Remix by Audio seeing as it's one of his favs

    That's exactly who I'd pick as well.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I can't think of many remixes that actually worked. Papa New Guinea? Remember the remixes of Lords of the Null Lines? God, those were bad.

    Thread has taken an inevitable turn! There are so few good examples. Total science do it best imo.

    DLR has done a Champion Sound VIP according to his FB page.

    I love updated tunes if they are done well; with a nod to the original and a new spin/take by an artist. The Phantom Force remix is a good example of that

    Phantom force remix was the best one in years tbf.

    Someone should remix No Reality by Ram Trilogy. There, I said it.
