The Art Of Sampling and Remixing - Some Kind Of Retro

Because of plenty of requests for retro/new wave/80s stuff, I've decided to make another set of this sort.

Most of the tracks that I've used were either remixes of the original or samples from the original, so bear with me, but I guarantee that they fit well in the set. Don't expect full length tracks as some are sampled only, but still having that retro vibe.

I've handpicked a few of my retro/new wave/80s faves (either remixes or sampled tracks) including music from The Police, Industry, Mike & The Mechanics, Blur, Dexys Midnight Runners, Thompson Twins, New Radicals, A-Ha, The Church and more cool old school tunes.

Now for the tracklist:
1) S.O.S. - Filterfunk (Tom Novy Remix) - samples "Message In A Bottle" by The Police
2) State Of The Nation - Industry (Remix)
3) Wanna Have Funk - Filterfunk (Whitelabel Remix) - samples "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" by Cindy Lauper
4) Let's Get Dirty - Dirty Funker (2006 Vocal Mix) - samples "My Sharona" by The Knack
5) Girls and Boys - Blur (2005 Hoxton Whores Remix)

6) All I Need Is A Miracle - Dirty Funker presents Red Kult (Main Mix) - samples "All I Need Is A Miracle" by Mike and The Mechanics
7) The Sun Always Shines On TV - A-ha (White Label Mix)
8) Alice - The Sisters Of Mercy (Dirty Funker Vocal Mix)
9) Under The Milky Way - The Church (Craig Obey Bootleg Remix)

10) The One Thing - INXS (Rhythm Scholar Dangerous Razors Remix)
11) Rock The Casbah - The Clash (Rhythm Scholar Boogie Bombs Remix)
12) Billie Dream - 11th Street (White Label Mix) - samples "Billy Jean" by Michael Jackson and "I Have A Dream" by The Great Martin Luther King, Jr.
13) Two Rivers - The Adventures (Remix)
14) Shiny Happy People - R.E.M. (Whitelabel Mix)

15) You Get What You Give - New Radicals (White Label Remix)

16) Come On Eileen - Dexys Midnight Runners (DJ Teva Circuit Revue 100)
17) Lies - Thompson Twins (DJ Teva Rat Boy Tribal Mix)

18) I Can't Go For That - Hall & Oates (White Label Mix)
19) Everybody - Madonna (Masi & Mello 2005 Remix)
