Remarkably Cool Christmas Music: Merry Mixmas – $11.97
Merry Mixmas takes many of the more upbeat holiday classics, and without butchering the originals, picks up the pace. But just a touch. Just enough beat, just enough drive, just enough…extras.
Bing gets the remix treatment, so does Dean Martin and Johnny Mercer. Even The Vince Guaraldi Trio (they provided the music for A Charlie Brown Christmas) is given a gentle boost. The CD is a collaboration from a bunch of different DJs, and it’s stunning that the producers somehow managed to find a group of artists that didn’t completely stomp all over the originals.
Preview the whole CD below. Individual MP3 tracks are also available for purchase. Should be pretty easy to find on iTunes too.
