VINYL DIG: The DFA Remixes

double pack of heaters

September 28, 2016

Every week, I dig through my record collection. Sometimes it's to discover long forgotten gems or B-sides. Other times it's to clean house and lighten the load. Here's what surfaced from the stack this week:

Record: The DFA Remixes

Year: 2006

Track: Gorillaz ‘Dare'

Why do I have this record?

I was putting together a mixtape of remixes and mashups to send to a radio station in Egypt. So I went to the only surviving record store in B’ham that sold rave cuts (the name escapes me…) and bought everything they had that might work for that sort of demo mix. I went on to work for NileFM for 5 years. 

How was it originally received?

Belter. As well as this song ever would be, but this mix sounds huge for the dance floor. 

Has it stood the test of time?
