Homage to their context

remixed art

Aside from those that listen to music via vinyl almost all other forms of music are consumed digitally. There’s the argument that album art ain’t what it used to be and is less iconic then it once was. However as I started listening to two mixed sets consisting of Amplive’s collection of In Rainbows remixes at
GorillaVsBear
and Thank You Jay Dee, Act 3 at Stones Throw Records I noticed a couple things. Both sets were not by the original artists yet they were able to take enough of the recognizable visuals that they created a visual understanding. The in Rainbows was in context to the album it was mixing while the Simpsons parody was just that. These are just two album covers that caught my attention, I’m sure there’s a ton out there that I just haven’t come across yet. I guess there is still some memorable work that isn’t just of a band’s photo…

    Not exactly – Jay Dee/J Dilla’s last album was entitled ‘Donuts’. Still a very cute tribute, though.
