Legendary singer-songwriter Paul Simon is about to head out on his farewell tour, and what better way to commemorate his five-plus decades in the biz than… a collection of electronic remixes?
An array of DJ/producers have remixed every track on Graceland, the 1986 mega-hit on which Simon blended his signature folk-pop with African music, winning a Grammy for Album Of The Year and paving the way for Vampire Weekend among other achievements. Paul Oakenfold, Groove Armada, Photek, Thievery Corporation, Gui Boratto, and a bunch of other veteran dance music types contributed remixes. Michael Gaiman, a figure who produces and DJs as the Duke Of New York, coordinated the project, solving once and for all the biggest problem with Graceland: You can’t play it in the club.
