This week, she nails it again with her second single, "Warrior" a slinky, sensual heater with London producer SG Lewis. Dua Lipa's Future Nostalgia disco-funk anthem "Break My Heart" is already an aural party in its own right, but here eternally party-starting producer Moon Boots throws even more bounce in the mix with his shimmery, funky and official edit. The Brooklyn-based producer extends the track, adding percussion, piano stabs and clips from an actual party to deliver a take on the track that isn't that different from the original, but which makes a very good thing even better.
German producer Roosevelt follows his excellent LP, Young Romance , with the new single "Sign," which, like the music on that last album, balances '80s-inspired synth, disco, driving beats and cinematic textures into a musical amalgamation that simultaneously manages effervescence and heft.
Clearly, we all really miss being together on the dancefloor. He is certainly the most high-profile remixer to do so. Contemporaneously to disco in the mids, the dub and disco remix cultures met through Jamaican immigrants to the Bronx , energizing both and helping to create hip-hop music. Cutting alternating between duplicate copies of the same record and scratching manually moving the vinyl record beneath the turntable needle became part of the culture, creating what Slate magazine called "real-time, live-action collage.
Early pop remixes were fairly simple; in the s, "extended mixes" of songs were released to clubs and commercial outlets on vinyl inch singles. These typically had a duration of six to seven minutes, and often consisted of the original song with 8 or 16 bars of instruments inserted, often after the second chorus; some were as simplistic as two copies of the song stitched end to end.
As the cost and availability of new technologies allowed, many of the bands who were involved in their own production such as Yellow Magic Orchestra , Depeche Mode , New Order , Erasure , and Duran Duran experimented with more intricate versions of the extended mix. Madonna began her career writing music for dance clubs and used remixes extensively to propel her career; one of her early boyfriends was noted DJ John Jellybean Benitez , who created several mixes of her work.
Art of Noise took the remix styles to an extreme—creating music entirely of samples. They were among the first popular groups to truly harness the potential that had been unleashed by the synthesizer -based compositions of electronic musicians such as Kraftwerk , Yellow Magic Orchestra, Giorgio Moroder , and Jean Michel Jarre. Contemporaneous to Art of Noise was the seminal body of work by Yello composed, arranged and mixed by Boris Blank.
Primarily because they featured sampled and synthesized sounds, Yello and Art of Noise would produce a great deal of influential work for the next phase.
Others such as Cabaret Voltaire and the aforementioned Jarre whose Zoolook was an epic usage of sampling and sequencing were equally influential in this era. After the rise of dance music in the late s, a new form of remix was popularised, where the vocals would be kept and the instruments would be replaced, often with matching backing in the house music idiom.
Jesse Saunders , known as The Originator of House Music, was the first producer to change the art of remixing by creating his own original music, entirely replacing the earlier track, then mixing back in the artist's original lyrics to make his remix. Another clear example of this approach is Roberta Flack 's ballad "Uh-Uh Ooh-Ooh Look Out Here It Comes ", which Chicago House great Steve "Silk" Hurley dramatically reworked into a boisterous floor-filler by stripping away all the instrumental tracks and substituting a minimalist, sequenced " track " to underpin her vocal delivery.
The art of the remix gradually evolved, and soon more avant-garde artists such as Aphex Twin were creating more experimental remixes of songs relying on the groundwork of Cabaret Voltaire and the others , which varied radically from their original sound and were not guided by pragmatic considerations such as sales or "danceability", but were created for "art's sake".
In the s, with the rise of powerful home computers with audio capabilities came the mash-up , an unsolicited, unofficial and often legally dubious remix created by "underground remixers" who edit two or more recordings often of wildly different songs together. Girl Talk is perhaps the most famous of this movement, creating albums using sounds entirely from other music and cutting it into his own.
Underground mixing is more difficult than the typical official remix because clean copies of separated tracks such as vocals or individual instruments are usually not available to the public. Other artists, such as Erasure , have included remix software in their officially released singles, enabling almost infinite permutations of remixes by users. The band has also presided over remix competitions for their releases, selecting their favourite fan-created remix to appear on later official releases.
Remixing has become prevalent in heavily synthesized electronic and experimental music circles. Many of the people who create cutting-edge music in such genres as synthpop and aggrotech are solo artists or pairs. They will often use remixers to help them with skills or equipment that they do not have.
It is not uncommon for industrial bands to release albums that have remixes as half of the songs. Indeed, there have been popular singles that have been expanded to an entire album of remixes by other well-known artists.
Some industrial groups allow, and often encourage, their fans to remix their music, notably Nine Inch Nails , whose website contains a list of downloadable songs that can be remixed using Apple 's GarageBand software. Some radio stations, such as the UK's "Frisk Radio". Recent technology allows for easier remixing, leading to a rise in its use in the music industry. Many famous artists have been involved in remix disputes.
In , Jay-Z went to trial over a dispute about his use of a sample from "Khosara Khosara", a composition by Egyptian composer Baligh Hamdy in his song " Big Pimpin' ". Remixes have become the norm in contemporary dance music , giving one song the ability to appeal across many different musical genres or dance venues. Such remixes often include "featured" artists, adding new vocalists or musicians to the original mix.
The remix is also widely used in hip hop and rap music. It usually contains some if not all of the original verses of the song however they may be arranged in a different order than they originally were.
In the early s, Mariah Carey became one of the first mainstream artists who re-recorded vocals for a dancefloor version, and by most of her major dance and urban-targeted versions had been re-sung, e. Some artists would contribute new or additional vocals for the different versions of their songs.
These versions were not technically remixes, as entirely new productions of the material were undertaken the songs were "re-cut", usually from the ground up. The Bad Boy remix garnered positive reviews from music critics.
Although now anyone is free to use this idea, the success of "Mimi" [ref. You could argue that the 'Fantasy' remix was the single most important recording that she's ever made. Indie artist Grimes has called "Fantasy" one of her favorite songs of all-time and has said Mariah is the reason there is a Grimes. Lyte was asked to provide a "guest rap", and a new tradition was born in pop music. George Michael would feature three artistically differentiated arrangements of " I Want Your Sex " in , highlighting the potential of "serial productions" of a piece to find markets and expand the tastes of listeners.
In , after doing " California Love ", which proved to be his best selling single ever, Tupac Shakur would do its remix with Dr. Dre again featured, who originally wanted it for his next album, but relented to let it be on the album All Eyez on Me instead. This also included the reappearance of Roger Troutman , also from the original, but he ended the remix with an ad-lib on the outro. In , Jessica Simpson released an urban remix of her song " Irresistible ",  featuring rappers Lil' Bow Wow and Jermaine Dupri , who also produced the track.
Kelly , who recorded two different versions of " Ignition " for his album Chocolate Factory. The song is unique in that it segues from the end of the original to the beginning of the remixed version accompanied by the line "Now usually I don't do this, but uh, go ahead on, break em' off with a little preview of the remix.
Kelly later revealed that he actually wrote "Ignition remix " before the purported original version of "Ignition", and created the purported original so that the chorus lyric in his alleged remix would make sense. In , EDM artist Deadmau5 , who worked with Jay-Z's Roc Nation, tried to sue his former manager for remixing his songs without permission, claiming that he gave his manager the go-ahead to use his work for some remixes, but not others.
And, as always, little ones can still look to Sesame Street. Available on the Theatre Horizon Facebook page ages 4— Johnny Shortcake David Sweeny , with his tight disco attire, oversize glasses, and giant gold jewelry, looks nothing like Fred Rogers.
Still, as he sings a song, waters a plant, cracks a double-entendre, welcomes a by-video guest Amos Lee, Martha Graham Cracker, and Eliza Hardy Jones have appeared , and dances with his 2-year-old, the Kidchella and Kimmel Center regular transforms his South Philly living room into a neighborhood we all ought to visit. Through Aug. Needless to say, humor has been in short supply lately.
Prizes include free comedy camp, T-shirts, and fame. But what Da Five Bloods may be most remembered for—and what makes it feel like a gift to film lovers of every political persuasion—is for turning the spotlight on to a quartet of older African American actors who rarely if ever get to play featured characters in movies.
Da Bloods were a group of friends who served several tours together in Vietnam in and around Norman served not only as their unit commander but also as their spiritual and political leader, helping them reconcile their identities as Black men living in a country that is hostile and indifferent to them with their love of country. Their actual mission is to locate and launder a stash of gold the five had buried over 50 years earlier, a payout they see as reparations for their mistreatment while in the army and at home.
His mission is to give a full and necessary airing of the painful contradictions ingrained in Black and American identities.
