Perfect example of how Remix Regeneration is arguably better than the original.
On my internet radio thing, a couple of references came up to “Disco Duck,” and I thought that was a one-hit-wonder, more a novelty tune, than anything else.
The Disco Duck I found was a remix, including disco hits from – before my time. Disco never made it with me.
I had this running in the background, and the music, there’s obvious lyrical links to disco, but the remix is ever so much more palatable than the original. The remix, over-dub, and mash-up takes dated material, makes it fresh, and, as far as I’m concerend, more enjoyable. Much, much more enjoyable.
Remember that as a rallying cry for rock and roll?
The iTunes version is three, hour-long sets mixed by different artists, then there are also sixty cuts that are combinations of various, I’m not sure what.
Disco was an over-produced commodity from an era roughly before my time. However, the music, in its remixed form, holds up well. Maybe because a good dj can clean up the origianl holes left by the music, insert heart and soul where there was none before.
As an “album,” it contains more than four hours of music. Priced like an album, I think this is really only available in digital format, and this is the wave of the future.
It might be a perfect example of how Remix Regeneration is arguably better than the original.
Fun stuff, worth it to me, and worth its value in digital dollars.
