      @Jeremy Sole: completely agree. i've been a massive fan of tom waits for over 30 years, saw him live in 81, 85 and 87 and this is an amazing rework. it sounds like the drummer went back in the studio with waits and laid down a new drum track. well done mate. that said, if someone puts a house beat on a waits track i'll kill em! ha ha, just kidding

      You blown me away with this. Could never sit through his diatribe. You've opened up a door I'm not sure I want to go through just yet. Damn though man that beat is just so... HOT. Amasing.

      Great job, Jeremy. This was such a Giant Step anthem back in the day (wish I had this mix to work with back then).
      Great to see it still inspires others to work it in their sets.

      For the curious, The album it's from is called "Small Change' and the CD was just remastered and reissued (get it on Amazon.com).

      Hey, Walker G... your argument seems noble but is kinda worn out.
      As JS mentioned in his reply, A lot of us remixers get our motivation to do tracks in hope of finding a new audience for a tune and artist, a maybe to show some cross cultural/generational relevance.

      With a classic.. it's not about trying to make it 'better'. It's about building on greatness, and not obscuring it with the results.
      Hopefully, we become 'better' remixers, producers and/or DJs and listeners in the process.

      It may be a better experience for you to continue listening to the original version, untouched, but someone unfamiliar with the song or artist or is simply open to fresh perspective doesn't have that baggage.
      A remix of a classic like this inspires me to re-listen to the original version and gives me something more club friendly to play in my sets. Nuff said.. Ole'!

      @walker_g: I can appreciate all the words you just said, except "should". Just like an original song is, a remix is a work of art. Art is always best understood in context, BUT can be just as fun (and fullfilling) when taken out of context too. I respectfully disagree with you on this one. I personally love the challenge of not only re-working songs that I can easily improve on, but taking songs that I already think are perfect, and carefully enhancing certain elements for maximum effect on modern day sound systems. When the sub speakers are independent from the tweeters. Adding low tones and cleaner highs can literally re-introduce a song to a whole new generation. THAT is something too important to me to remain a purist about the original sound quality.

      a remix should be something where you make a good tune better, on some you can work, on others it's just stupid to take hands on. sorry mate, i think tom waits belongs to the second category, same is with muddy waters

      Beautiful track, heard it on KCRW. What's the story on the availability of it? Is the label prohibiting its distribution? Let us know when you get it on iTunes to download!
      Thanks ~ Keep It Deep
