Bob Marley and the Wailers, 'Legend: Remixed'

Talk about a sound clash: a cadre of some of EDM’s biggest names have gathered to remix Bob Marley and the Wailers’ classic 1984 album Legend in a new release, Legend: Remixed. Out June 25th on Tuff Gong/UMe, Legend: Remixed features reworkings of 15 of the album’s original 16 cuts, all of which you can now check out in this exclusive album stream.

In many ways, the record was a family affair: Marley’s son Stephen teamed up with DJ/producer Jason Bentley (who served as the album’s executive producer) to create a peppier version of “Three Little Birds,” while the reggae legend’s oldest, Ziggy, offers a sparse, simple remix of “Redemption Song” that carries a front-porch warmth. Other contributions include RAC’s quick-stepping version of “Could You Be Loved,” Thievery Corporation’s cavernous, psyched-out take on “Get Up Stand Up,” and Nickodemus and Zeb’s slow-burning but bumping remix of “Jamming.”
