Mixmag reports that Justice is taking a ‘Just Say No’ attitude towards remixing Johnny Cash.
The duo was recently approached to remix a classic Cash track.
“We were asked to do a Johnny Cash remix,” says Justice’s Gaspard Augé. “But it doesn’t make any sense.”
“When the song is already good, we can only make it worse.”
Or, as I put it a couple of years ago – “Johnny Cash is one dead guy I wouldn’t want to piss off by making a crappy dance remix of his songs.”
What do you think of the trend of doing dance remixes of dead artists’ classic songs? Are the tracks fair game or should we let artists rest in peace?
