UK disco producer, The Reflex, is truth. His edits and reworks are a thing of absolute beauty, impeccable knowledge and reverence of the highest order. Using only the original, multi track master stems for his series of ‘Re√isions,’ The Reflex has tackled such heavy weights as Michael Jackson, Blondie, David Bowie, Queen and Stevie Wonder… twisting the originals into gorgeous, extended work outs (he re√ision of ‘Rock With You by MJ is an absolute monster).

Speaking of monster’s, here we have his edit of another MJ classic, ‘Thriller.’ Though not a part of his re√ision series, we’re treated instead to a staggering level of creativity using only the acapella and instrumental versions of the original tune. Perfect Halloween weaponry for the approaching weekend. Free download too!

London boogie-wizard, Luxar has thrilled us in the past with his amazing take on the classic Jackson 5 joint, ‘Dancing Machine’ (check it HERE). Well, the brit is back with a series of reworks from a solo Jackson outing and this time, he brought his friends Benny & Gain. Tackling the beast of a tune that is ‘P.Y.T.’, Luxar steps up first with his beefy, dance-floor ready version that faithfully covers all the bases of the original. The Dub version courtesy of Benny & Gain really takes the cake for me here with it’s slinky stomp and choice vocal snips. Lastly, Luxar takes another stab with his ‘Excursion’ mix which sums it all up in the title… some slow-burning fire right here, folks.

Wrap the package up with some ace artwork and a FREE DOWNLOAD to boot and you’ve got a winner!

Show some love!

You might think you know what’s in store… you saw the title, you thought to yourself: “another Michael Jackson remix…. Haaaphrump…” But then, that overwhelming, almost primal urge to hear even a snippet of every Jackson version that you possibly might come across in your endless hours of trolling the interweb; desperately searching for a shred of something authentic, honest, or, at the very least, amusing. So you click the link, and…. BLAST OFF!

Luxar hit the proverbial “ball out of the park” with this one. His remix oozes glowing neon, like a night drive thru the Hollywood hills in a drop top Porche circa 1987.

Philly/NYC dj/producer Cosmo Baker and Discobelle go way back and he’s a legend when it comes to rocking parties all over the world with his extraordinary sets. Michael Jackson’s birthday was this monday and here’s a very special tribute set of only Michael Jackson tunes that Cosmo Baker played at the Hi Fi Club in Calgary the night that Michael Jackson died three years ago.

“Happy birthday to Michael Jackson – still to this day probably the greatest performer that ever walked the planet. I remember vividly the day that he died… I was in Calgary to do a show at one of my favorite spots on the planet, Hi Fi Club. News started streaming in that MJ had become sick, and as the hours passed, the story got darker and more ominous. When it was finally confirmed that he had left this planet, I walked out of my hotel room, leaving a broken Twitter and Facebook and a screaming CNN behind. I was in a daze. How could it be that Michael Jackson was dead? He was superhuman. He was a deity. MJ was a cultural constant, someone whom I felt as if I had grown up with, and whom it seemed I would grow old with. That night at the club, I was planning on doing a set of the raps and the club musics but at the very last minute, I scrapped all my plans and decided to go in with an unscripted all MJ set. What I thought was going to be just a handful of joints ended up being the entire night, over 2+ hours of hits, rarities, collabos etc… The night went way past the recording here, early into the morning while the doors were locked and people continued to dance to The King Of Pop. Here’s the mix, hosted by my folks at Mad Decent.”
