Editorial Reviews

Verve Remixed: The First Ladies features tracks by legendary female artists including Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan and Dinah Washington. Marlena Shaw, Astrud Gilberto and Sister Rosetta Tharpe also have timeless songs included on the record.

'Nina Simone makes me smile, cry, laugh and have a deeper sense of understanding myself all at the same time. Add to that, nearly every one of her songs has that kind of power. The ability to channel and express that kind of raw, spirit shaking soul every time she sings a song is, in my experience, incredibly rare,' said Derek Vincent Smith (aka Pretty Lights). 'I don't think I've ever really said this, but when I really think about it, there is no musician in all of time that has affected me like her. Real talk. The opportunity to remix her song, 'I Put A Spell On You' was an awesome opportunity and an indescribable experience. I hope I can do it again.'

The original tracks have been remixed by 13 of the hottest producers and DJs including Zeds Dead, the Toronto based dubstep group, Kaskade, widely considered one of the most influential names in modern electronic music, critically acclaimed indie artist Toro Y Moi, electro hip-hop soul performer Pretty Lights and Bassnectar, one of the highest profile DJs in the U.S.

Verve Remixed, a compilation series created by Verve Records, brings the greatest producers and DJs today to create remixes of classic Verve jazz tracks. The series has sold close to 1 million tracks worldwide, resonating both with fans of the original recordings and with a new untapped fanbase who are drawn to the producers showcased on the albums.

Let's face it... almost all of the Verve releases have been hit and miss. On one end, you'll have fantastically beautiful re-interpretations like MJ Cole's UK Garage remix of How Long Has This Been Going On, RJD2's hip-hop/plunderphonic remix of The Gentle Rain, and the Album Leaf's moody, glitchy rework of Lilac Wine. On the other, you'll have stuff like Max Sedgley's rather pointless cover of the Peter Gunn theme, that Evil Ways remix from Volume 4 by no one I can remember, and unfortunately, most of the Christmas album. But be fair, anytime you get 10-14 artists remixing 10-14 different tracks from 10-14 different sets of source material, they statistically can't ALL please everyone all of the time. What's important is how they fit together as an album, and how that album expresses the current sound of the electronica scene at the time.

Which is why, in my opinion, this is at least as good, if not better, than the first ever Verve:Remixed. To this day i'm not much of a fan of that Tricky/Tool remix of Strange Fruit from V:R1, but it's still a solid example of trip-hop from that era. And taken in that context, everything else on there is gold in one way or another (if not actually gold ;). That's exactly how i feel about this album. Everything from RAC's funky, but rather basic remix of Too Darn Hot, to Maya Jane Cole's gorgeous deep house rework of Blue Skies, to the massive D'n'B crusher Zed's Dead extracts from Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood, to... whatever you call that DJ Vicious & Victor Niglio remix of I've Got You Under My Skin. Electro-dubtrap-bounce-anthem? In any case, i thought it was ridiculous at first... turns out it's amazing, just like everything else on here (honestly, it's worth it just for Flume's "Woman of the Ghetto").

Its been several years since the last Verve Remixed collection and its great to hear some new remixes. The remixes on this CD are very well done as per usual. Trippy, varied and each one with its own unique style. Returning favorites like Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Dinah Washington, Nina Simone, Astrud Gilberto, and Billie Holiday are included. And its awesome to hear Sister Rosetta included this time around. Her 'Jericho' is a pretty sweet remix and is one of my faves. 'Too Darn Hot' by Ella is another standout. And its so nice to hear my favorite Astrud Gilberto song remixed so nicely. All in all a solid addition to the verve remixed series. The remixes are all great!
