Bronson: Diamonds

Good things come from Greece! Quite possibly one of the most exciting things i’ve heard in a very long time. New duo Bronson rework Janet Jackson‘s ‘Diamonds’ into something fresh and new. The single comes packed with a house remix by equally talented A.N.D.Y. and more. Listen below.

Janet Jackson: Rock With U (Ghosts of Venice Rework)

While the ‘Discipline‘ album was far from Janet Jackson‘s best work, I did take a liking to ‘Rock With U,’ and one of our readers has just shared this rather nice Ghosts of Venice rework in our Hard Candy Facebook group. I’m loving the sexy beat and hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

In other news, amid rumors that she was due to tie the knot in an extravagant ceremony this weekend, Janet released this statement:

“The rumours regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony. Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favourite children’s charities. We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy. With love, Wissam and Janet”

Congrats Janet! Now work on new music!

Janet Jackson: Throb (Peter Rauhofer 2013 Remix)

MuuMuse and I have been known to obsess over Janet Jackson’s ‘Throb,’ so when I saw that he posted a fresh mix from Peter Rauhofer I knew I was in for a treat!

Rauhofer’s take on the 1993 classic is, as you might expect,  an anthemic club delight. It has to be said that there’s nothing like the sexiness of the original, which can be found on the flawless ‘Janet’ album, but I think you’ll enjoy this nonetheless!

 

Top 5 Super Bowl Performances

Last year, at this time our excitement was at a fever pitch as we waited with bated breath for Madonna’s performance at the Super Bowl Half Time show. This year, we eagerly anticipate Beyonce‘s performance at tomorrow’s Super Bowl, I think she’s gonna do a tremendous job.

While we wait to see what she’s got up her sleeve, it’s time for us to take a look back at some of the best performances at the Super Bowl Halftime show over the years…..

Janet Jackson: If (Kaytranada Remix)

There’s no denying that Janet Jackson has a killer back catalog, and one of my favorites is the 1993 hit ‘If.‘ This evening on a hunt for new remixes to add to my collection, I came across the Kaytranda remix of the classic. This talented Montreal-based guy has given it a total rework, incorporating lots of new elements and resulting in a banging makeover which is an absolute delight!

I couldn’t leave you without the flawless video for the original…..

Janet Jackson: Say You Love Me (Late Night Tuff Guy Rework)

Janet Jackson‘s “Say You Do”, the third single to be taken from her debut album “Janet Jackson” has been given a banging rework by Late Nite Tuff Guy! He funks up the tune and hits its out the park as usual, I wonder who he’s lined up next?

Watch a cute and innocent looking Janet  lip syncing her way through a performance on Soul Train in 1982.  It’s so crazy to see her way back in the beginning, how far she has come!

ELIOT x Hard Candy ‘Baby Rollerblade’ Mixtape

We’re so excited to premiere the latest in our Hard Candy X mixtape series, this time with Jessica 6 keyboardist and producer extraordinairre ELIOT. On this mix, it’s an all out dance affair. I originally played it for the first time at a party I hosted on my rooftop in Brooklyn, and everyone was love-ing-it! The cover shot was taken the next day on my roof, as a huge storm approached the city: he’s coming soon!

Based in Greece, ELIOT has expertly woven together current and past favorites from the likes of Bjork, Brandy, Madonna, Donna Summer, Midnight Magic, Rogue Vogue, Chris Malinchak and Saint Etienne. A prime cut on this mix comes in the form of NA/JET, which we exclusively premiered the mp3 of a few weeks ago.

ELIOT is busy in the studio, currently working with Nomi Ruiz on tracks for the new Jessica 6 album. He’s hinted at a possible change in direction for their next set!
