Video: The Making Of Prince’s Dance 4 Me Icon Remix

Here is video of the making of Prince's "Dance 4 Me" Icon Remix by David Alexander. I told you of the remix back in early August and this remix has been making it's way thru certain channels for about a week ago or so, depending on your connections or what not.

Thanks to Marcia for sending this in to us to post.

So...you feeling it? Does it make you wanna pick up maracas and just shake or what?-Dr.FB

  1. Let’s party !!

  2. LOoOoOoOVE it! Can’t wait to hear the whole thing :). Thanks for posting!

  3. Is it gone? All I see is a white box… :(

  4. btw I love that black sweat hat 😉


  6. Well, Prince’s singing singled out was really cool. The mixing and especially the keyboard playing sucks! I hope Prince makes him redo it with much better keyboard arrangements. It sounds like he actually made it all up in the 3 minutes it took to do that video. I do understand that it is a remix, (tecno), but I just didn’t dig the keys. Wrong sound and too basic.

  7. I can’t even play that in my hoopty, are you tryin to get me shot?? Lawd
    I feel like I’ve gone insane listenin to that ruckus. C’mon man.
    …and he took out the halleluia part too? What?

    See, I’ve gone deaf now…I can’t take it no more, now I have to learn sign language so I can talk to myself. This is an outrage!

    …did I mention you’re still fine?

  8. Why Prince? Why???
    What about the “DIGITAL HAZE”?

    That sounded like every other peace of crap they play in every other lame nightclub.
    Besides, it hurts my ears because you made me get used to good music.
    I’ve become used to the finer things because of you Prince! lol
    Prince, please stop torturing us! lol
    P.S. YOU’RE STILL FINE! I’ll forgive you. lol

  9. I guess you ain’t checked out Princes latest old ass music lately if you think he can still do a good remix. what you mean is he USED to do a good one. And as far as B sides…well his A sides aren’t as good as his old B sides…so leave that alone.
    Saying this is better then the original didn’t mean it was great. I have a slew of producers and remixers that I know who could get Prince thinking again in his music. But we all know THAT will never happen.

  10. Can say thanks for creating a remix that makes a dancer wanna go to sleep! If I picked up the maracas it would be in protest! Prince could have done a much better kick A** remix of this himself! And wish he would have! I keep saying he would give Timbaland,Neptunes etc a run for their money.I honestly think the song should have just been left alone.This remix sounds like an aged 90’s remix that was never very interesting in the first place! Does it really make anyone wanna get up an dance?Or crank it up in their ride?I truly find that hard to believe!Cause I won’t be!And ya’ll KNOW how much I LOVE PRINCE! :) I say shelve this one and just stick with the original tune!Sorry Prince,u know I got mad love 4 ya and I know you ain’t scared of what a sista got to say. 😉

  11. that’s kinda HOT..I’ve love to hear the full remixed version…guess I have no connections….lol

  12. @Chocolate_Box777: we share the same dream…! Am wishing for years already I once would have the ooportunity to see him recording at tune….. from scratch 😉

    thnkx to Doc for sharing

  13. I’ll shake my maracas when I pick them up of the floor. They hang like that. One is gold the other is platinum and when I walk all you hear is, “Clank, Clank” LOL

    Seriously, I don’t dig club techno beats, but this one is slowly growing on me. A B-Side would be heaven though.

  14. nope, not feelin it. I like the original :)


  16. I love the original song and the remix is alright. It’s cool to hear and see someone else working on someone like Prince’s work.

  17. That was cool I like it. Guess he was about to call P up and tell him he was finished with it. It was HOT!!

  18. I love the original and I love the remix too. Thanks!!

  19. Like hearing Prince vocals like that. I wish it was Prince we were seeing recording. That is my dream 2 c him in the studio recording. But I’ll take this 2

  20. I like when Prince tries new things. And always interesting when someone else takes a whack at his remixes. I like the video – cool to see how some of those sounds were made.

  21. yep…..I dug it!!! thanks for sharing…

  22. This was the ONLY song that made me dance at Jimmys this summer!
    Apart from some JB magic.
    Love it . Makes u wanna sing …Hallelujah!

  23. Well thats not so bad ain’t it . Nice..! I could just spend hours and days in a studio watching ppl so stuff like this. sigh

  24. so far much better than the original.
