The best remix ever

#1 Post by telys »

Hey, I sometimes tend to think that Keyan's permanent ecstasy mix of We all feel better in the dark is the best remix of a PSB song ever. I mean, it's 15 min 40 sec long and combines all of the remixes of WAFB in seamless smooth way. And may I remind you, it's 15 min 40 sec long.

Never heard of it. Is this official?

Can't find it on YouTube.

Can’t comment as I’ve never heard it either!

Never heard of it and not sure I want to hear it if it is 15 minutes sticking all the mixes end to end - I can do that myself.

Best PSB remix for me is Left to my own devices (disco mix) - at the moment.

Best remix by anyone ever - New Order’s True Faith remixed by Shep Pettibone.

Agreed. Whenever that best mix question pops up, I think of that mix.


The extended dance mix of Always on my mind is also very good.

Yeah, it's literally just a cross fade from one mix to the next. Absolute bootleg.

Yeah, just a bootleg.
So many great mixes to choose from, don’t know about the best. But love Shep Pettibones remix of Love Comes Quickly, better than the original.

Shep is a legend. His musical engeneering is unbeatable.,

But we have quite a lot of good remixes so far. Marshal Jefferson, David Morales, Black & Jones just to say a few.

From bootlegs, I love Paul Manning remixes of Don Juan, The theatre, It must be obvious and What have I... (look on soundclound).

And I love Keyan's suit gentle remix of Home and Dry.

For me the remix has to add to the original song in such a way to make it sound new and fresh.

My top 5 (off the top of my head) would be
1. Young Offender (Jam & Spoon Trip-O-Matic Fairy Tale Mix)
2. Here (PSB New Extended Mix)
3. Discoteca (Baby Doc Mix) this was very close with the (Trouser Enthusiasts Remix)
4. A Red Letter Day (Trouser Autoerotic Decapitation Mix)
5. Up & Down (Tom Stephen Vocal Remix)

as for extended mixes, apart from the obvious like the Introspective versions i would go for the FULL extended version of "This Must Be The Place I Waited Years To Leave"

The Rough Mix of 'You Know Where You Went Wrong was one of the points that I realised PSB were different to other bands - who bothers completely remixing B-sides? - and as a result it I will have a soft spot for it.

I also love the Trouser Enthusiasts mixes, the 'Possibly More Mix' of Did You See Me Coming? and the 'Love Her Love Remix' of Leaving.

Those are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head.

The "Seriously" makeover was one of the most effective mixes in the PSB canon.
