The Original vs Remix debate is as old as the question of which came first, the chicken or the egg.

We're still divided on whether the remixing of original tracks should be encouraged or whether remixing is the natural progression and the gateway to the originals but for a newer generation.

Carl played Zoe a song by Arnon Ft. Jonisa - G Paradise which samples Coolio's Gangsta's Paradise on The Flash Drive after the song polarized many on #KfmTop40 with Carl Wastie over the weekend.

Coolio - Gangsta's Paradise (Original)

Err the Coolio Remix

Reaction to "Gangsta's Paradise" remix

Now that you've heard both, Original and the Remix, did you know that both Arnon and Coolio sampled Stevie Wonder's classic Pastime Paradise?


Maybe the debate is not as important or as black and white as to which is better but rather the fact that there's space for both to coexist and that a remix is more of an acknowledgment and appreciation of the original and create your own take or version of that which has moved the world in so many ways.

What do you think?

Tune into The Flash Drive with Carl Wastie, every weekday from 3 pm to 7 pm.
