i'm sure it's happened, i can almost feel a pile of them.
but as it did happen, i never sat down and said, "this remix
actually made me discover the original" and so i can tell
you that you're onto a perfectly good xltronic topic; that
this has definitely happened to me. yet i cannot pull any
out immediately. perhaps some else will have better luck

Not necessarily remixes in the strictest sense...

But so much of the early 90s hard hitting west coast hip hop
that I love is totally stealing large swaths of pure funk
samples from dudes like George Clinton. Clinton was a
treasure trove for me, I fuckin love it. Found him mostly
thru Ice Cube but Clinton is *everywhere* in 90s hip hop.

Then you realize Ice Cube's "Check yo self" just lifted the
beat from Grandmaster Flash's "The Message" without changing
a note. It's all a bit mixed up, but they don't really call
anything a remix.

As a kid (12, 13 or so) I remember looking all over for the
version of NiNs "Closer" that was featured as the opener of
the movie Seven. Few years later I found it, it's
Coil and it turned me onto their entire

Now, combine some Coil and some 90s Clinton infused hip hop,
and you got a stew goin.

I remember going into tower records. 1996 or 97. Found the

"Hey man so you know if I can find the nine inch nails album
that has the version of closer that's in the movie seven??"

"Uhhmm here" *hands me downward spiral*

Motherfucker, I already have that, that's not it.

"Then I'm not sure, it was probably made just for the movie.
Here I think you'll like this."

I end up buying cherry popping daddies zoot suit riot and to this
day its the gayest album ever. That guy sucked. What a shit

further down the spiral perhaps

i remember my freshman roommate in college playing zoot suit
ri-ot (something something bottle of beer) but i didn't
actually know who the song was by until now. obviously, i
was not in a rush to figure it out
