Michael Jackson – Bad (Afrojack Remix)

by • September 20, 2012 • Electronic, Music, NewsComments (0)225

When Michael Jackson’s family reached out to Afrojack to remix “Bad,” the 25-year-old DJ said he was busy. He was scared and truthfully, how would you feel remixing the King of Pop’s now 25-year-old single? Afrojack compared the feeling to having President Obama ask him for financial advice.

Well, Afrojack changed his mind. The Dutch DJ went to the same studio that MJ used to record “Bad” over two decades ago and put his own spin on the track, while trying to appeal to every generation of Michael Jackson fans. The remixes are part of a commemorative package that drops today, which includes three CDs, two collectible booklets, and the highly anticipated DVD release of a concert from the record-breaking “Bad” tour.

Afrojack spoke with Complex on his fears surrounding the project, what he changed about MJ’s iconic track, working with DJ Buddah and Pitbull for the radio edit, and how to make it as a DJ.

Michael Jackson – Bad 25th Anniversary Edition
Like Bob Marley, Michael Jackson recorded many classic albums, which will be re-released countless times. This year is special because it marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of the King of Pop’s ‘BAD’ album.

“The era of BAD represented Michael’s creative ‘coming of age’ as a solo artist in charge of every aspect of his career – from recording to touring to endorsements to merchandising. This was the first album on which nearly all of the songs were written by Michael,” stated John Branca and John McClain, Co-Executors of the Estate of Michael Jackson.
