  1. DJ Irene Remix (4:11) Nick Bertossi Club Mix (7:00) new US mixes just promo'd out -- not technically "released" in the official sense, but what I think is that the US promoter/A&R guy is hoping this one final "push" of new mixes will be enough to lift the single to #1 on next week's Billboard club chart, since this week it was held off from the top-spot by Andy Grammer "Honey I'm Good" disappointingly
  2. Bojan = best remix of the bunch BY FAR!!! I love everything about it (except the slower tempo, haha) btw, in case any DJ's or remixers wanna take a stab at doing something with this song, here's an acapella: https://soundcloud.com/djmichaelangelo/madonna-sander
  3. Incorrect. You'd need a pretty expensive printer (?) or CD-ROM etching drive to faithfully reproduce the disc lettering, along with a painstaking eye for detail that most sloppy bootleggers don't have.
  4. I'm not sure what others are out there - I do see plenty of fakes and fan-made bootleg CD-R's on eBay though :\ I'm not sure about the front cover art or its details....the less I look at that ghastly design the better
  5. I know right? Only die-hard fans & collectors would pay that much -- you're probably better off not buying one
  6. yessir I actually have a few out-of-state DJ friends and trading partners I sell for (their leftover stock) it's how I got one of the Ghosttown promo CD's -- now THAT was a goldmine! hehe
  7. *facepalm* I only pointed it out 5-6 times in the auction text, yes they are hehe
  8. I have a few copies up for sale on eBay, in case anyone's interested: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bitch-Im-Madonna-official-US-promo-CD-single-10-trk-remixes-AUTHENTIC-/291512030956?
  9. This kind of scattered, helter-skelter approach to song production makes me think back to the days where an entire album (not just a song) could be recorded in 1-2 days. Granted this was decades ago *lol* But they'd book the studio time, get a band together, come up with the songs right on the spot there sometimes, and lay down all the tracks in just a few takes, at a budget of just a few grand, not millions. Obviously, at artist like Madonna isn't capable of such simplicity - I don't think anyone is anymore. But just some food for thought "Axwell wrote the track for 'Rain On Me'. All t
  10. already did actually! *lol* are there other contests other than just the one that remixer "Thrill" had? I finally found his FB pages: http://www.facebook.com/IAMTHRILL and http://www.facebook.com/IAMJOSHHILL just now
  11. I've tried quite a few online (free) watermarking tools, for pictures, and the best & easiest one by far is this: http://www.picturetopeople.org/image_utilities/watermark/online_digital_watermark_text.html -- I've used it many times on eBay auctions for new and/or rare CD's where I don't want anyone else stealing my images *lol* It was this auction: http://www.ebay.com/itm/MADONNA-GHOSTTOWN-GHOST-TOWN-THE-REMIXES-MIKE-CRUZ-OFFER-NISSIM-/121667464623 right? The asking price was $499.99 but I wonder what the offer was that he accepted? I love his flippant attitude in the description *lol*
  12. nice! did you win a contest, or is he a friend of yours? as luck would have it, I just received one copy today myself from a fellow DJ, and I'll probably put it up on eBay tomorrow (unless of course anyone reading this board wants to private message me an offer)
  13. I'm replying to my own info here *lol* Has anyone actually seen what this US promo CD single looks like or have any .jpg scans of it? I'm checking Discogs & eBay and neither one has it (a lot of fan-made bootleg discs are cluttering up the marketplace though I see, yuck). I have yet to even confirm what order the tracklisting is in, or if it's a silver-backed CD like "Living For Love" or just a limited-pressing CD-R like many promos are nowadays. Anyone have any pictures of this supposed item?
  14. Good news and bad news. There is actually a US promo CD single for "Ghosttown" with 12 tracks (including the 2 previous Tidal exclusives) however it was only mailed to Billboard reporters, and I'm told just 300 copies were printed. They're literally shipping only ONE copy to each DJ on the BB panel, which will make this an extremely expensive collectors item, if any even turn up on eBay. https://instagram.com/p/2KfIRci0-I/
  15. It is! I actually never thought I'd see the day of R-n-G remixing a Madonnan song officially, after the whole Rain debacle. There was a LOT of drama behind that particular remix, from what I remember. So much so that Peter Osback (aka Razor) and Guido Osario were pretty much banned from remixing any artists on Maverick Records, and that maybe extended to WB as well? They got the acapella stems for "Rain" and created this dark dubby 14-min long mix called the "Happy Birthday Junior Remix" to surprise Jr. Vasquez at a NYC event somewhere. Madonna heard about it and she was not happy, so that
  16. A couple new official remixes were just promo'd out to US Billboard DJ's just in time for weekend gigs: S-Man Remix (6:40) DJ Yiannis String Intro Mix (1:40) The latter is pretty much a "teaser" track for his full-length mix which I hope will be released soon (along with Mike Rizzo's brilliant remix). I'm thinking the S-Man remix was done by Roger Sanchez, who's remixed Madonna once or twice in the past, unofficially. Here too, his remix's tempo is WAY too slow, and poor Madge's vocals sound so dragging and tired.
  17. Very very good point, and sadly this again is the fault of Madonna's team, such as long-time remix A&R consultant Orlando Puerta being very VERY old-school and out-of-touch with reality, on the topic of releasing CD singles. He pulled the same sh*t for Cher's singles from her last album (Women's World, Take It Like A Man, and I Walk Alone) that is: advising the artist NOT to release a commercial CD single in the US, but instead commission dozens of remixes and just make them "promotional only" so that they're digitally delivered to a few hundred DJ's and Billboard reporters, and the only
  18. http://soundcloud.com/mikerizzonyc/madonna-ghosttown-mike-rizzo-funk-generation-club-mix-interscope FINALLY!!!! Now this is how it's done At 136 BPM, Madonna sounds SO much more natural than that slow dragging 128 BPM nonsense from the other tired remixers. God bless people like Mike Rizzo, a remixer who is never afraid to choose a tempo for his club remixes that actually FITS the song being sung! Instead of being stuck in the 128.0 BPM "box" like so many other hapless lazy remixers these days. When the original song's tempo is 80 BPM or whatever Ghosttown is, slowing down the vocals to
  19. A big reason for the "quantity over quality" approach to Madonna's remixes lately has been the fact that a label exec named Orlando Puerta (the former A&R Remix Coordinator at Warner Bros) left there years ago to form his own promotions company, and he now manages several small-time remixers (like Dirty Pop, Thrill, etc). Madonna's management still hires Orlando to procure remixes for her songs, and his mindset & method of doing business is a bit dusty & guarded. In other words, instead of reaching out to actively SEARCH for remixers Madonna has never worked with before, or bigg
  20. Somebody get me the acapella & I'll make one myself :-D
  21. I'm glad I'm not the only one who was flabbgergasted & outraged over this ridiculous screwup. I must be the only fan on earth who went out of his way to avoid hearing any of the demos, leaks, early versions, etc....and for what? To be cheerily instructed to visit some bloated website and attempt to read through the music credits on a computer screen? Seriously? I listen to music on a computer and stare at a screen 8 hours a day for my job. The last thing I feel like doing when sitting back to relax and listen to a new album is to be forced to read the production & songwriting cre
  22. From a technical standpoint, the song won't be easy to remix....at 80 BPM it's kind of in that "mid-tempo danger zone" where if the remixers slow down the vocals to club-speed it'll make her sound sleepy & dragging, but if they speed up the vox she'll sound unnaturally fast and chipmunky. Either way, I think Dirty Pop & Joe T. Vanelli are doing remixes, so we'll see how they turn out I guess....
