On September 29, 2009, DJ Shadow announced the DJ Shadow Remix Project, an open opportunity for DJs and producers from around the world to remix some of the most legendary material in the trip-hop canon. Nine-and-a-half months later, the anticipated child was born, a release from Reconstruction Productions featuring 19 tracks of remixes stretching across Shadow’s discography. Endtroducing and The Private Press get the largest overhaul, including two remixes of the classic “Building Steam with a Grain of Salt.” Featured here is the Ruby My Dear remix that speeds up the song for a frenetic, rapidly changing remix that goes from Venetian Snares to The Flashbulb to Bonobo in the blink of an eye, all while keeping the main purpose in sight–demonstrating the wide influence that Shadow has had and still has for emerging producers around the world.

It's too fast. Loses the chilled out trip-a-thon factor.

Enotron
08.12.10
don't think that's what it was going for

sniper
08.12.10
Never mind, I spoke too soon this rules. Not as acid-trippy though.

sniper

Yeah it's definitely an interesting take. I liked the mood of the original better is all.

Enotron
08.12.10
