AiMT and 607 have had at least one thing in common lately: hiatus. My post count has fallen off exponentially in the past two months or so, and 607's famed spell of adventurous flips ended back in April.

Luckily Lord Six is getting back into the studio and churning out some new heat. This is his latest, a rework of Nacey's "Bulletproof" remix. It's also a functional miniaturized MJ tribute. (The end of the rework incorporates a snippet of "Stranger in Moscow.") It's perhaps his best flip yet:

Way back when, 607 recorded and performed with his younger brother Bobby (formerly known as Morbid), and together they were known as Trauma Team. Bobby is on the second verse here, so this one's for you old school 607/Trauma enthusiasts.

The Inevitable Michael Jackson Post

I realized at some point yesterday that I would not be able to avoid an MJ post. This man's impact on just about everything AiMT covers cannot be denied, so let's get on with it.

R.I.P. Michael Jackson

I'm not going to ramble on too much. You people know the deal. How about we start with a mix?

00:00: The Jacksons [ft. Mick Jagger] - "State of Shock"
04:32: Tanlines - "MJ Tribute"
06:56: Michael Jackson - "Sunset Driver (Demo)"
10:52: Michael Jackson - "Remember the Time (Don Diablo's 'Song for MJ')"
13:51: Michael Jackson - "P.Y.T. (Demo) (U-Tern Edit)"
19:06: Monsta wit da Fade - "Michael Jackson wit It"
22:40: Michael Jackson - "We Are Here to Change the World" [Theme From Captain EO]
25:13: Michael Jackson - "Thriller (Bird Peterson Remix)"
28:56: Michael Jackson - "Billie Jean (YMO A+B by Baby Armie)"
33:03: Jakwob & Jestar - "Beat It"

This was cobbled together very quickly—no faff, no frills. But I guess I should make one thing resoundingly clear: I don't prefer any of these remixes or covers to their respective original versions. These remixes are just for fun. (Obviously we'll all be hearing plenty of the originals over the next few months.)

Captain EO is a 17-minute 3D film that was shown exclusively at Disney amusement parks (Epcot, Disneyland, etc.) premiering in '86 and closing in most of the parks about 10 years later.
