“Legend: Remixed” – Marley tunes get an electronic reboot

Bob Marley, Legend, Remixed, Ganjaology

HOT DAMN this remix compilation is good! Bob Marley & The Wailers’ notorious “best of” album just got an electronic makeover from the likes of Pretty Lights, Beats Antique, Photek, Stephen Marley and Ziggy Marley, among others. “Legend: Remixed” offers a buffet of different genres from reggae to drum and bass to dubstep. Every track brings a new, unique perspective to one of Marley’s classic tunes while still retaining its original essence.  Rolling Stone’s Jon Blistein writes:

In many ways, the record was a family affair: Marley’s son Stephen teamed up with DJ/producer Jason Bentley (who served as the album’s executive producer) to create a peppier version of “Three Little Birds,” while the reggae legend’s oldest, Ziggy, offers a sparse, simple remix of “Redemption Song” that carries a front-porch warmth. Other contributions include RAC’s quick-stepping version of “Could You Be Loved,” Thievery Corporation’s cavernous, psyched-out take on “Get Up Stand Up,” and Nickodemus and Zeb’s slow-burning but bumping remix of “Jamming.”
