Verve Records’s Verve Remixed project is meticulously curated music nerd’s paradise. For over the past decade the project that pairs Verve’s deep vaults of jazz and blues classics along with contemporary EDM producers has yielded consistently dope music; there’s not a clunker in the bunch. This year they went with a theme, First Ladies, and let Couchsessions favorites like Azari & III and Toro Y Moi lend their deft hand to some of their female sung classics.

Verve dropped off a gorgeous double LP set, one red, one black, with gatefold packaging with classic pictures, that new record smell…if I could bring it to life and have its babies I would. We are giving one of these away to one of our readers. The winner will be notified on September 9th.
