Ultra Records Announces Public Enemy Remix Project
Posted on November 21, 2007 by Jamie Slaughter
Ultra Records have begun an exciting electronica/dance remix project of PUBLIC ENEMY songs, via an arrangement with Public Enemy's publisher Reach Global and Public Enemy. The first set of remixes from FERRY CORSTEN, BENNY BENASSI and DON DIABLO of PE classics "Bring The Noise" and "Give It Up" released on August 21, 2007.
States Public Enemy's CHUCK D: "I am pleased to acknowledge that PUBLIC ENEMY’s words and music are both considered classic and timeless; here it's split in half so the lyrics and rhythms can move the dance floor with new sounds from the sonic wizards of today. This is an appropriate and exciting project, since Public Enemy evolved from the same elements of DJ diversity that helped formulate dance and electronica in the first place."
Adds CHUCK D about each remixer:
"Don Diablo's remix of 'Give It Up' incorporates today's modern DJ and remix techniques, giving new energy to a song that was recorded over a decade ago. With Flavor Flav and the bounce of the track, this rocks in a whole new way."
"'Bring The Noise' is a perfect track to experiment with. Its pace, energy and lyrics make for an interesting mix of potential ideas. Ferry Corsten makes the ultimate concoction of all these elements like a mad scientist."
"Benny Benassi takes his trademark house/Euro sound and incorporates traces of trance to mind-bend the listener into a haze of consciousness. Benny certainly can bring the noise."
