JOHNNY CASH REMIXED features bold new interpretations of Johnny Cash classics from top music remixers and producers who were recruited to take the original master recordings and infuse them with the sounds and technology of modern music styles such as hip hop and dance music.
The album includes a performance from the most notorious American rapper: Snoop Dogg. Johnny Cash classics were licensed from Cash‘s first record label, the legendary Sun Records, also the first record label home of luminaries such as Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Roy Orbison. The original tracks, recorded with Cash‘s first band the Tennessee Two from 1956-1959, were pure and stark, with only the essentials; guitar, light percussion and Johnny Cash‘s unmistakable voice and presence. The new mixes maintain this fantastic charm and personality while filing out the sound and creating daring re-interpretations.
Among 5 exclusive bonus tracks this limited edition also includes a bonus DVD consisting of a documentary following the making of the album. The film features interviews from selected remixers, filmed in their home studios, including Snoop Dogg captured at the Cash Recording Cabin in Hendersonville, Tennessee.
Johnny Cash Remixed is Executive Produced by John Carter Cash, Snoop Dogg, and Mathew Knowles (pop queen Beyoncè‘s father and manager) for Music World Productions, Inc.
