This is for Robin1 in regards to the Michael Jackson - Thriller remix by Danny Tenaglia:
I'm very late with e-mail's these days as I am in Ibiza, but you caught me ;)
Thriller ... How sad my mix was never released, huh? :( Imagine remixing one of the most famous songs in the history of sales, a legend, MTV, awards of all sorts and just as I am done, they scrap the remix project because of this dumb bastards foolish behavior spending way too much time with minors. I don't want to pass judgement on him, but after the second major incident I truly felt super sorry for MJ and his incredible existence. Life is strange .... Anyhow, in 1994 I signed a contract. Naturally, Epic/Sony was no joke about people having the masters to MJ music and since my remix was not going to be released, they double made sure that I would not give them away to anyone until they contacted me again, and they never did. Naturally, I had to respect this. I strongly believe in Karma. I do not take or give away what does not belong to me. I had many opportunities to get Major Attention by leaking this out, and even stuff I'd done for Prince/Mavis Staples that was rejected and a few others, but I always respected the situation, and looking back now, well, look at me now :)
I hope you can respect and appre ciate that I simply do not have the authority to give this to anyone. Francois K. once asked me for it. Imagine me having to say NO to FK? LOL He understood 100%. He's been in this situation. we all have. FTR: I do believe Frankie Knuckles remix was released? I know he did Rock with you. Before the project was stopped several came out like MAW, Roger S. and a few others. It was so long ago. Maybe you can tell me?
Keep me updated and God bless you and yours, danny tenaglia :)
This is a snippet from a BBC documentary called Pump Up The Volume. Listen to Armand Van Helden how he got into House Music and what his final words are in this snippet. I totally relate to what he's saying, he hit the nail right on the head.
Hi this is PhunkyDiscoBoy, I started this blog as the ID Productions Tribute but decided to change it to a Tribute To Classic House. I felt that it would give me a wider range of my favorite House Music to share & tell my story of what it means to me. I've been following House Music since the very beginning in the late 80's. Now almost 20 years later it has become the basis of dance music all over the world. I have a large vinyl & CD collection to use as my tools in telling my story. If you have any requests, feel free to leave it in the CBox. Hope You Enjoy!
