We just stumbled across this sweet Armand Van Helden remix of Twin Shadow’s “Old/New Love” on Simplicity. Yes, a little late to the game as this was out 5-months ago. Better late than never! Very cool to hear Armand’s transition into Deep House. A great record we’ll be spinning on the Asheville House Music Society – 103.3-LP FM or AshevilleFM.org on the Internet.

Basement Jaxx “Never Say Never” (Tiësto & MOTi Remix)
Okay, so I never, ever play Tiesto records. Not because I don’t like Tiesto, but because I DJ on the Internet and I don’t play major festivals. Well, I don’t play major festivals yet. But, this remix was worth noting. I heard it in a mix that our dear friend, Stonebridge, put together here.
Basement Jaxx, “Never Say Never,” is definitely the record of the summer. Of course, they had to hit it with all kinds of remixes to spread the music far and wide. So, we’ll give this one props. It’s anthemic, big festival sounding, without being too cheesy. So, I give it a pass here on Netmix and we’ll bring it to you because it’s deserving of a listen.
I know…I’ve gone outside my deep house, tech house and straight-up house music leaning roots. What can I say? Sometimes you gotta spread it around, LOL.
Florence & The Machine – You’ve Got The Love (Nico Pusch Bootleg Remix)
Yes, I’m a sucker for alt/folk and emo type deep house remixes making the rounds these past few years since I first heard the Jaques Lu Cont, Thin White Duke Remix of The Killers “Mr. Brightside.” Here’s a bootleg reworking by Nico Pusch of Florence & The Machine “You Got The Love.”

Remixes of Ruffneck feat. Yavahn – Everybody Be Somebody
This classic originally produced by Ruffneck feat Yavahan in 1995 took that years Winter Music Conference by storm. It’s heavy kick drum and sweet female vocal declaring that “Everybody wants to be somebody” made people move on dance floors around the world. It’s interspersed male vocal popping up throughout the track added a sense of urgency contrasting against the sweet female vocal that quietly reminded us that we all want to be someone. Today, house music lovers around the world immediately identify with the original. It’s 19-years since it’s original release and we’re finally seeing remixes of this classic house music track. Check them out below.
We’re diggin the Lucas and Steve Remix, but if you’re looking for something with an EDM flair, then you’ll want to check out the Luca Guerrieri Remix. Thanks to DJ Strobe for putting us down with this new anthem, which is featured in his latest MixCloud set. Of course, DJs can purchase the Lucas and Steve Remix as a download at Beatport.

Two great remixes by the renowned, MK!
Mark Kinchen, known around the world simply as MK, has been producing dance music since the early ’90s. MK is responsible for three incredible house music classics, including “For You” under the pseudonym 4th Measure Men, “Love Changes as MK featuring Alana,” and the legendary record by Nightcrawlers called, “Push The Feeling On.”
I first learned about MK when I heard this record, “Somebody New” (which I still have on vinyl!) on KMS Records in 1989. KMS was Kevin Saunderson’s label out of Detroit. One could argue that while we attribute tech-house to German producers like Terry Lee Brown Jr, MK was really one of the early pioneers of tech house – the blending of techno and house. And, it’s clearly apparent on this record as well as the “For You” release.
According to his Wikipedia entry, his discography stops short in the late ’90s and doesn’t pick back up again until 2009. But in an interview with PublicSF, MK mentions doing two or three remixes a month after the Nightcrawlers record. A quick check over on Discogs and you can see that MK has credits on 435 remixes at the time of this writing. That’s pretty incredible, as I personally had no idea he had done that much work. I guess someone has to get started correcting the Wikipedia entry! It’s a huge body of work and maybe it’s time to go back and revisit many of these mixes. Well, that’s when I have some time, because that’s a lot of stuff to wade through.
Since we’re not going backwards but forwards, here are two recent MK mixes that I really loved. The first is a remix of Duke Dumont’s hit, “I Got You,” which is also available on Beatport as a download.
This one, Wankelmut feat. Emma Louis, “My Head Is a Jungle,” was one of the top tracks on Beatport’s Deep House and Tech House charts. MK took a crack at this one and the results are here on Netmix. We love this mix and we hope you do too!

Steve Angello & Laidback Luke Ft Robin S – Show Me Love
The original was produced by Stonebridge for Champion Records, but it's back for a remix treatment by Steve Angello and Laidback Luke. The video...eh...a little weak, but what did you expect in these harsh economic timesâ€”a masterpiece? No, we didn't think so. Just enjoy the music and forget about the tacky motion graphics.
