Mixology master Gregg Gillis is like a DJ guardian angel of the pop spheres, beaming his remixes from some cloud where Fat Joe and Spacehog are partying down together for all eternity. In his latest album-length sound clash (released via free download on his Illegal Art website), he serves up Foxy Brown over Peter Gabriel, M.O.P. over Miley Cyrus, Big Boi over Portishead, even Ke$ha chanting "Police shut us down!" over a Grand Funk Railroad drum solo. But he always finds weird new emotional nuances in the samples — like when he lays B.o.B's taunting "Haterz Everywhere" over the warm, pretty piano outro from "Layla."

    “Nightshift”

    The Commodores | 1984

    The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
