This remix album is as diverse in sound as its dazzling array of notable producers, which includes Tricky Stewart, DJ Cassidy, Steve Aoki, Frankie Knuckles, and Benny Blanco, among many others. "We jumped at the opportunity to be involved with this project because Michael is a legend who influenced our entire career and redefined the world of music," says Pharrell Williams from The Neptunes, whose seductive and synthy reworking of "Never Can Say Goodbye" is anchored by an irresistibly heavy bass line. For Salaam Remi's reggae remix of "ABC," he "imagined the Jackson's taking a trip to Jamaica in the early '70s with a Jamaican band playing behind them." And for DJ Cassidy's cheerful rendition of "The Love You Save," he says his goal was to "unite the sounds of Michael's work with both The Corporation and Quincy Jones to create something fresh but equally timeless, classic, and inspiring as the original."
Universal Motown Records has enlisted the hottest producers in the game to pay homage to Michael Jackson by remixing their favorite tracks from The Jackson 5's timeless catalog of gems and jams. Akon, Swizz Beatz, Q-Tip, Ryan Leslie, and Rodney Jerkins are just a few of the superstar producers who are featured on MICHAEL JACKSON: THE REMIX SUITE
