Prepare yourself for an experimental and marvelously edgy reimagination of Born This Way as most of our favourite album tracks score a remix treatment in this here compilation.
Born This Way – The Remix is the monster pop superstar’s second remix collection and once again, Gaga projects herself ahead of the curve by enlisting underground and upcoming DJs/producers for the project.
2010’s The Remix – which canvassed hits from both The Fame and The Fame Monster – has become one of the best selling remix albums in the world, reportedly clocking over 500,000 sales to date. Part of the reason why it really worked, even at that early stage of her pop career, is because Gaga‘s not just a one-dimensional dance music artist. She and her songs have the ability to render themselves against everything from experimental electronica through to commercial fluorescent house with a fluidity not many performers can claim.
Basically, her remixes – just like every other aspect of her performance art – never appears like an afterthought or extended plug-in that’s largely removed from her overall vision. The choice of collaborators and producers enlisted have yet to disappoint and with Born This Way – The Remix, there’s gonna be a bit more boundary pushing.
The roll call flaunts collaborators from the indie rock sphere like Foster The People and Two Door Cinema Club, and there are the consistent merchants of quality electronica as well – eg. Royksopp, Goldfrapp and Hurts. This should be a well decent light and shade experience.
