My friend Jesse aka Powernap and his partner Zaplin have thrown their hats into the Jiggaman remix ring. As I mentioned a while ago, that is a very crowded ring, but, somehow, the best of the best find ways to keep it fresh. A Morricone Gangster is a good example. It samples the shoot-em-up sounds of legendary composer Ennio Morricone and gives the American Gangster album a welcome dose of international flavor.

Here’s a sample: Morricone Gangster remix of “Sweet” (ironically one of my least favorite songs on the original album)

I’m a little late putting this up, but whatever. Classic material stands the test of time.
