Blues Songs in the Remix

The blues has been an inspiration for musicians for over a century. Even now some of the biggest hits around are inspired by great blues music. And therefore we post some of the best remixes of the blues on this website. We earlier wrote about Son House, Muddy Waters and Keb´ Mo´, today blues legend John Lee Hooker, who is very well remixed by JPod an Canadian DJ.

Jpod Remix of the blues: John Lee Hooker

Ha-ha-ha
Shake that thing, Baby
One time for your Daddy
I love ya
You’re cookin’ when you jive
Honey, you’re workin’
You’ve got the pots on
And the gas workin’ high

What we like about this remix is the rhythm and the way Jpod keeps the original structure of the song alive. He adds some funky drums and keys and turns is into a happy feeling groove cocktail.

JPOD’s trademark sound is a tasteful fusion of soulful sounds with crispy rhythms and bold basslines. He uses hip-hop breakbeats and bouncy electro basslines as the foundation for organic expressions of world, reggae, folk, bluegrass and more.

JPOD is online at Soundcloud and Facebook, follow him here.

JPOD also owns a digital label called Swing Set Sounds which seeks to arm DJs not only with great music but also with tools to create their own custom remixes.
