Experience has led me to take a reserved approach to remix albums. The established formula tends to consist of adding faster beats, protracted vocal samples and headacheinducing baselines. Remixology is no different. The same pumping bass lines, the same vocal samples and the same techno beats passed off as ‘remixes’ massacre track after track. Not even Fatboy Slim seems arsed on his ‘Old Skool’ take of ‘Renegade Master’. It’s bad enough the people behind this compilation let the record slip past quality control; it’s even worse that more of the same is to follow later with a series of remix albums.
