John Carter Cash, Snoop Dogg Work on Johnny Cash Remixed

Snoop Dogg is among those participating in Johnny Cash Remixed, a new album featuring bold remixes of recordings licensed from Sun Records, Cash’s first label. Snoop Dogg is featured on “I Walk the Line,” a remix by QDT, a new production team he has formed with Teddy Riley and DJ Quik. Other remixes include “Get Rhythm” by Philip Steir (the only remixer allowed to work with Frank Sinatra’s recordings for Reprise Records) and “Leave That Junk Alone” by Alabama 3 (creators of theme to The Sopranos). A vinyl version of the Compadre Records/Music World Music project will be available in select independent record stores on Sept. 23. It will be available at other stores and online beginning Oct. 14. “My father made his stead by defying the expected and accepted way of things,” said John Carter Cash, who serves as an executive producer of Remixed. “He set the standard at the same time.  He would have loved this remix record.  While it stays true to the original recordings, this CD touches on undiscovered ground.  This is what my father was about: staying true to tradition while creating groundbreaking new music.”
