    Tracks of the Week: Remix

    Sven Väth "Harlequin Plays Bells (Alter Ego Remix)" - This week I'm spotlighting remixes that I feel are superior to their originals. This track was always on heavy rotation at my radio show in college. It's a great one to speak over. Actually, the entire remix CD is wonderful. Reworkings by Underworld, Speedy J, and Hardfloor are also available on the disc. But there was always something about this Alter Ego mix that I've been drawn to. Buy It.

    Psychic TV "S.M.I.L.E. (Greedy Beat Syndicate Remix)" - For me, the best Psychic TV releases are still Towards Thee Infinite Beat and its companion remix album Beyond Thee Infinite Beat. But why is this version better than the original? Three simple words: Daffy Duck sample. (Plus some nice "Key Largo" film samples sprinked throughout.) Buy It.
