ModMusic: Nina Simone Remixed

Despite our inability to reach the readership heights of Perez Hilton or Andy Towle, we have managed nevertheless to get on the radar screens of music publicists. (Quality over quantity? I'm just sayin'.) Most of the MP3s filling my inbox from said publicists are pretty terrible, but some are true gems. An example of the latter is the package promoting Nina Simone: Remixed and Reimagined, the latest soul/jazz legend to get interpreted for club play. The trend started a few years ago with Verve Remixed, but this collection might be the strongest ever, with songs like "The Look of Love" and "My Man's Gone now" being transformed by Coldcut, Francois K., Tony Humphries, DJ Logic, Lenny B. and Groovefinder.

Check out all the goodies below, including a downloadable mix not found on the album, "Turn Me On (Tony Humphries Main Mix)." Damn, that woman could sing. The album will be released October 31.

Download: "Turn Me On (Tony Humphries Main Mix)," Nina Simone
