Bob Marley's Legend To Be Remixed by Pretty Lights & More

It's tough to get rights to songs as coveted as Bob Marley & The Wailers' Legend, much less to give them a dance music spin. Either way Ziggy & Stephen have given the go ahead to a Legend Remixed album, co-produced by the two brothers alongside one of LA's most prominent EDM radio jockeys Jason Bentley, who you may know as the man who lobbied to add a dance music category to the Grammys back in 2004. All suspicions aside, a quick look at the tracklist reveals some of dance music's best candidates for the job. Apart from the obvious Pretty Lights, whose successful remixing career has included takes on Led Zeppelin (the first track we posted on this site), is a long roster of producers who seem to fit the bill. I myself am really anticipating the RAC, Beats Antique, and Thievery Corporation takes on these classic reggae tracks. Surprises on the listing include mashup pioneer Z-Trip and Drum & Bass trailblazer Photek. The album is set for release on June 25 on Island/Def Jam.
