Make Me Dance [A Collection of DEVO Remixes]
An original Basement compilation of all available “official” DEVO remixes, compiled in 2006, with updated sources swapped out in 2020.
Crossed out tracks are currently commercially available on the Turn Around: B-Sides and More (1978-1984) compilation by WB (although I suspect one or two on that compilation were sourced from this compilation). These tracks are not being distributed with the rest of the collection. Remixes of What We Do are currently available for digital purchase.
Many late 80s/early 90s remxies were briefly commercially available on the superb Futurismo reissues of Total DEVO and SmoothNoodleMaps. Sadly, Futurismo went under due to the pandemic and these releases are now out of print. For the time being, they are still fairly easy to obtain, and deserve a place on the shelf in any self-respecting spud’s collection. The bonus tracks are incorporated as part of this collection because they are now out of print, but Booji Boy’s Basement asks all spuds to fully support DEVO by purchasing their official output. Buying the products puts money in their pockets and stimulates further releases. (With the exception of the “Stuck in a Loop” remixes, all tracks are sourced from their original releases and not the Futurismo special editions.)
The “CHR Mix” of Post Post-Modern Man is only very subtly different from the “Macro Post-Modern Mix”; the effect on the guitar differs.
The first two bonus remixes by DEVO fan Frank Panucci are in reference to a DEVO 7″ that labeled these two songs as being “Dance Velocity” versions, when in reality, they were just the album versions. Frank went ahead and corrected the error.
