rewind 2.

the buffetlibre djs did it again and just released 'rewind 2', the second installment in their compilation featuring a ton of today's artists covering or remixing their favorite songs from back in the days. while i already heard from quite some bloggers that they have got mixed emotions about this release, i had a quick scan through the 89 tracks (!) and found some that you should definitely hear.

first up, on the more hard hitting side of things, we've got ac slater remixing the legendary 'everybody in the place' by the prodigy as well as super mal giving the early jungle classic 'some justice' by urban shakedown and micky finn a well needed update!

two of germany's finest, namely malente and knixx (the most talented vocalist from germany in years), are hooking up for a breaks-heavy cover of 'rock me amadeus' by falco (pictured above - rest in peace).

and on the lighter and more melodic tip, discodust favorites electric youth get busy on level 42's 'lying still', diamond cut covers 'teardrops' by womack & womack and miami horror provides a fresh spin on 'relight my fire' by dan hartman.

electric youth - lying still
diamond cut - teardrops
miami horror vs. dan hartman - starmaker (relight my fire remix)

as you can tell by the total amount of 89 tracks on 'rewind 2', there's a lot more to discover if you are up for it, but these were the most interesting and well-done contributions to me. but feel free to head over to buffetlibre djs and pick your own favorites!
