I frequently extol the virtues of Christmas Remixed, a great series of albums where DJs warp and weave Christmas classics straight from the original 45s to create totally new tracks that have a wonderfully modern feel to them, yet, at their best, remain respectful to the original. But it’s a pain to not be able to explain easily and simply through demonstration why the music is good. So I’m horribly glad for the invention of Seeqpod, which is easy to use and lets one display music that is awesome without making it too easy to pirate. Hoorah for Seeqpod!
The Dan the Automator remix of Dean Martin’s “Jingle Bells” is the only track from Christmas Remixed that I could find, but luckily it’s one of the better ones. (The best is arguably the awesome mixjob done on Louis Armstrong’s “Baby It’s Cold Outside.”)
