Bob Marley – Could You Be Loved (RAC Remix) [Nine Mile, JM]

Reggae / Electronic / Remixes

Bob Marley has always been a symbol of musical freedom, and to some extent blazing a 420 in itself. Coming from the first Jamaican singer/songwriter to achieve international popularity, it’s no wonder terrible remixes of his music have been consistently produced. When I first got wind of the concept album Bob Marley and The Wailers Legend: Remixed,  I was pretty ready for disappointment. The album’s aim was to fuse his reggae with electronic elements in an attempt to create a genre of contemporary reggae that would be more suitable to current tastes. In most reggae remixes, I found the electronic elements rarely complimented but instead stifled the signature rhythmic elements of reggae (yes, refer to Benny Benassi‘s dreadful dance track). That was until I picked up on this track which could possibly be the best remix of Bob Marley or RAC that i’ve had the luck to feast my ears upon (And trust me there’s been a whole lot).

The rest of the album’s up for preorder here on iTunes.
And if you wanna show RAC some love, do so here.
