So many fiery Janet remixes….all disco day to sort them out…
Whether she’s serving us with those iconic moves or making us move for our music lives on the floor, there’s no need to argue that Janet Jackson is the undisputed timeless icon of dance music. During the groovy course of her four decade career, Janet has always been a fixture in rewerk culture mostly because her light, airy, breathy vocal tones and catchy pop melodies fit perfectly on any beat that’s remixed her way.
As you’ll hear with this serving of Janet rewerks, the diva is perfection on top of a deep house beat, a hip-hop rewerk or a hot-and-steamy bedroom ready flow. (Hey, Ms.Lyte.) But if there are any remixes on this essential list that you must play on repeat, it’s those provided by dearly departed DJs Frankie Knuckles and Peter Rauhofer who took over on a handful of remixes for our beloved dance queen.
Mr. Knuckles teamed up with the legendary David Morales to take hits “Because of Love” and “The Best Things In Life Are Free” to become even sexier versions of themselves, and shortly before his unfortunate death two years ago, Mr. Rauhofer took Janet’s already throbbing “Throb” and transformed it into a thunderous dance floor explosion that will leave you panting and wanting more. They’re all here and so much more.
Ready…set…Ms. Janet remixed.
