Bob Marley Legend Remixed
The classic 1984 Bob Marley and the Wailers’ album Legend is about to get an EDM face lift. The new release, Legend: Remixed will include remixes by artists like Pretty Lights, Thievery Corporation, Photek, and Z-Trip. Some of the Marley brothers including Stephen and Ziggy will also be taking a stab at some remixes.
Leading up to the release of the album, bobmarley.com will feature exclusive behind the scenes videos of the some of the making of the remixes.
One of the more interesting things about the release of these remixes is that they will all feature the original tracks from the 1984 record — including some never before heard samples and tracks from Marley and the Wailers.
Still, many of us are wondering if this is a good or bad thing. Isn’t the album called “Legend” because it’s a legendary album that needs no reworking? After listening to the album only once it’s pretty clear that most of these artists are pushing for an “interesting” remix (the Marley brothers should seriously stay out of the EDM scene and stick to reggae).
