A Dance Remix of 'Graceland' is Set for Release (We're Not Kidding)

Look...we get that DJs and EDM have massive followings, but this little crossover project is rubbing us in all of the wrong ways.

On June 1, Graceland - The Remixes will be released and will feature remixed dance versions of all 11 tracks of Paul Simon's iconic album.  Some of the biggest DJs today are featured on this album, which received the approval of Simon himself.

I guess the question we have is, "Why?  Why on Earth is this happening?!"

JUST LISTEN TO THE REMIX OF "YOU CAN CALL ME AL"!  (IF YOU CAN!)

Paul Simon - You Can Call Me Al (Groove Armada Dub Redemption Remix) (Audio)

Graceland - The Remixes Buy/Listen - https://LegacyRecordings.lnk.to/PaulSimonRmxs!yccma About the album: Acclaimed as one of the most iconic records in rock and roll history, Paul Simon's GRAMMY-winning 1986 album Graceland has received a special 2018 reworking, with the likes of MK, Richy Ahmed, Paul Oakenfold, and Groove Armada all spinning their own unique interpretations across the release-the first time a classic album has been reimagined in its entirety.

It's easy to dismiss this rant as a rejection of simply trying something new, but there's a difference between trying something new and butchering classics.

If it ain't broke, don't remix it!
