Louis Armstrong Remixed
It’s pretty dreary, rainy, and cold in Chicago today, but that’s okay. Yes it’s my summer break, and I’m supposed to be enjoying warm weather, but to be honest vibing out to a remix album of Louis Armstrong is perfect for this bleak weather. Apple Juice Kid took a few notable tracks from Louis Armstrong and added his own twist to it. I know what you’re thinking, there are a handful of musicians who are pretty unremixable and Louis Armstrong is one of them. However, Apple Juice Kid is aware of that too. He doesn’t reinvent the songs, but instead complements them, simply adding extra drums or changing the pace of it. It almost sounds like what Louis Armstrong would have created if he was alive today. This is not the type of music that usually comes to mind when you hear the term ‘remix’, but Apple Juice Kids’ reimagining is more inventive and subtly original than any remix album I’ve ever heard. Check it out/download and let it compliment your dreary day.
