NIRVANA – SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT (BEATNICK x K-SALAAM REMIX)

by

Production duo Beatnick & K-Salaam provide a remix to one of music’s all time classics (actual fact), Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit. Firstly, the original record is one of my all time favourites, plus the video is a killer. Second, I’m not a fan of “re-doing” or remixing classics, probably never will be and this doesn’t really help either, but I have to say some of the extra strings and percussion on the second stanza and hook are nice tho. Worth checking out once. Maybe twice.

    I hear what you mean… It’s interesting yet odd. All in all I think it ruins a classic song but I did have to listen a few times to be sure.

      Yeah, all remixes usually do, even though they may have a few nice sections. I guess it has to do with the “relationship” you have with the original, or the emotions the artist infuses in the original work aren’t present when they try to remake something that’s already “perfect”.
