Joey Negro gives the classics some love!

Remixed With Love is Joey Negro’€™s dream project and most definitely a labour of love. The album features 18 tracks all remixed from original session tapes some more than 30 years old which was ‘A headache’€ to source as Joey puts it.

Often you end up speaking to relatives of the person who actually made the record and unfortunately I heard the line all too often, “€œI might have a copy of the vinyl somewhere but I definitely don’€™t know where the master tapes are.”

As a fanatical music collector and enthusiast Joey found himself meeting up with ex-label reps and relatives of the artists leaving no stone unturned – searching through boxes and in lofts. One multitrack was even under the producer’€™s bed. With such dedication comes results and the result is impressive.

Rather than remixes in their modern definition this is a body of remixes in a re-edit style with the tracks given a new dimension to make them more relevant and playable for today’€™s dancefloors.

In many cases the drums have been changed, percussion added and sometimes more keyboard parts but he’€™s not totally ditched the original structure of the music. This project is about utilising some of those fantastic original parts in a different way that takes advantage of many of the songs classic status subtly teasing in familiar elements and dubbing them out.
