David Bowie Vs. KCRW brings us Golden Years. Bowie’s iconic hit from 1976 is painstakingly remixed from four DJs from the KCRW indie radio station. The album starts with the original track to show us where it all began. The Anthony Valdez remix has a Disco/Funk vibe, the Eric J Lawrence remix has a dark, Experimental drum sound, the Chris Douridas remix doesn’t add too much to the original, and the Jeremy Sole remix has a Reggae/Dub vibe to it. When working with a track that is a close to perfect as this, it’s hard to find a way to bring a fresh, creative vibe to the track. For the most part the DJs succeed in doing this.
