13-08-11 verve first ladies

There’s no other way to say it: this album is insanely good. When Verve Records isn’t busy producing jazz albums by some of the greatest musicians in history, they shuffle through the EDM pileup to produce “Verve Remixed” — compilation albums of their famous classics reinterpreted by the world’s best DJs — always to fantastic results. I purchased (yes, purchased) their box set of Volumes 1-4 (iTunes) but this latest collection, “The First Ladies” (iTunes), tops the rest. Ella Fitz remixed by Maya Jane Coles? Dinah Washington meets DJ Carnage??? Nina Simone vs. Zed’s Dead?!?! Unreal. Check out my favorite track, remixed by the on-fire Flume, below, then go spend $10 and gift yourself the greatest week of music you’ve had in a while.
