It’s hard to see where Soulwax et al come into play there, no? My point is that it more often than not distracts, takes away from the original, and serves no real artistic purpose. There are of course the occasional successful* remixes, ones that truly add something to the song. These are unfortunately few and far between, and tend to get lost in the murky depths of mediocrity.
