In 2001, I've produced my firts remixes, that I uploaded on my website, Pagan Poetry and Hidden Place, of Bjork's Vespertine album. Those 2 remixes were downloaded more than 150,000 times !
Pagan Poetry remix has been played in several clubs around the world (I received emails from DJ's saying they used them in their sets) and was a hit on dancefloors. He won the Best 2001 Bootleg Remix price from Hauswerkz, a DJ collective from the Berlin club in Chicago, where a DJ even synchronized this remix on the original Bjork video, and was played in the club.
Since then, I produced remixes from Norah Jones, Kate Havnevik, Imogen Heap, Sean Paul, Bob Marley, Beenie Man, WC and Case, Destiny's Child, Rod Taylor... and many more are to come (Stephen Marley, Erika Badu, etc...).
Comments and Feedbacks
I'm receiving many comments and feedbacks since 2001, mostly about the remixes. Here they are...
In all of my years DJing in nightclubs
this is one of the best remixes
I have ever had the pleasure of listening to !!! DJ P.
The best remix I have ever heard in my life.
Great talent. Congratulations. CD burning worthly. H.
Magnificent long trance remix !
I think this remix should be released as Pagan Poetry CD3 !
Nice work !! T.
This stuff is higher quality than about 75% of the
official Bjork remixes I have heard. THANKS ! R.
ABSOLUTELY the best remix of the web.
I wrote about it directly to Bjork. L.
FUCKING brilliant !
I heard this remix of Pagan Poetry at a club just
the other day, and it blew me away !
Almost went crazy looking for it.
Best piece of remix i've heard so far ! DJ Gusto
My guess would be that Bjørk would appreciate it
very much. Do you mind if I burn it for my own pleasure ? R.
This is some tyte shit !
I've been going to Bjork Remix Web for awhile,
and this is the best that I've heard.
Keep remixing 'cause you are one talented mutha... you know. J.B.
Jesus ! Dude... this is... just... I'm shocked ! I worship you ! This the best Bjork mix ever ! Been a Bjork fan for years, this remix is just outstanding ! You are a real pro ! The mix is perfect it sounds just perfect ! You blend the beats and understand the mood of the sound, you got a piece of art here, how could you respect the spirit and soul of the sound and still transform it into something complete new. She should have YOU making her remixes !!!!! I'm just in awe at this, i have no words, PLEASE make some more of this... J.
One of the few remixes I will burn on cd.
Exactly what I was looking for with a remix of this song. H.
I've been a Bjork fan since Sugarcubes,
I love Bjork remixes and this one is very very cool.
Takes me to another world of future dance music and grooves !!!
Sooooooooo Amazing. J.S.
Definitely... you are a genious :-) T.
So powerfull !!!!
Björk's cyclone just invaded my head !
Must have be released... Thanks JC ! F.
Man, all I have to say is that your mixes are fuckin unbelieveable ! Seriously, words cannot describe how cool these remixes are. I taped your songs and was listening to them with my boyfriend in my car and he was like "holy shit, that sounds awesome!" It gave me chills, man. Keep it up ! J.
Wow... in all my years being a Bjork fan... I've NEVER ever heard of a Pagan Poetry remix, until one day, being silly, i happend upon your website.. and your mix... i was naturally curious... what would it sound like... how would it be ? What kind of beats would it be set to, i.e. jungle, deep/heavy house, happy..? all these questions ran through my head and then i clicked play... and now.. i just want to thank you, for making a wonderfully beautiful song, even more wonderful, and beautiful... just remember my fellow Bjork fan... All is Full of Love. B.
This is the best Pagan Poetry remix on Bjork Remix Web site
as well as on the CD singles so far.
I love this one. Amazing.
I put it in my car on my drive to work
and I thought I was gonna have a motorcrash! E.
The best Pagan Poetry remix, more than the original remix ! L.
I'm VIOLENTLY HAPPY !!!!!!!!!!! Fucking loved the remix man !!! A.
The Pagan Poetry remix is the best I´ve heard in a long time ! Keep up the good work ! E.
Just found it now 7 AM PST and love it - very sexy - had to dance to it then and there. Thanks for a flawless mix of one of my faves ! Met Bjork about 6 years ago in Iceland. A lovely eccentric. Kim
Brilliant mix !
Just discoverred it in January.
Uplifting and very catchy.
It should have been released and
would have been a great commercial hit for Bjork. B.
It looks like you've won the remix of the year with this one.
It's practically flawless.
And oh how I love to dance to it.
Super super sweet !!!!!!! M.
I'm writing for both songs you've remixed.
It's very beautiful the way you remixed
the Vespertine songs.
You've made my life brighter, thank you JC Lemay !! DL.
These remixes were very good ! I honestly have never heard a decent Bjork remix... until now. I could dance my ass off to this Pagan Poetry. Thanks so much !! Cynthia R.
MAN --- this is classic trip-hop wizardry.
I'd kill to work with someone like you.
The arrangement and texture are both very solid.
Great job is an understatement. Peace and much respect. R.
Just count the red squares. Brilliant !!!!!!!!!!! O.
AM SO HAP-PY !! Finally i've found it again !! I actually had found it long time ago -just for chance- and loved it so
much then deleted it for mistake... Would you believe it ? For six months it's been the first title i was looking
for every time i was connected... I downloaded all different remixes but it wasn't your one... then... finally... tonight... I'VE FOUND IT AGAIN !!! I don't know who you are but you make me happy every time I listen to the
music you have created. It blows my mind away. Thank you ! R. from Milan
Beautiful !! 1 of the best hidden places out there ! Where am I ? K.
Ignore the people who said it wasn't wonderful... that was the epitome of exaltation for me. Thank you so much for that... for a moment, I felt the numbness that, to be honest, had begun to seem a permanent state... lifted off me. Kallysta
From the time I pressed play until it was over I was flying.
Keep it up. Give us more. A.
A hidden place has opened by his clever trip-hop style.
You are an eyewitness. I must say this remix is perfect!
Nice work. T.
HEY! Such a fantastic remix...
One of the best and most polished mixes I've heard.
Keep remixing and I will keep visiting this page.
Please download this ! R.
Fantastic. Great music, well done !
Do you have a record deal ? D.
This is the best remix I have heard for months on BRW site.
Way to break the mold and do a trance remix for a Vespertine song !
Wow ... oh my ! I just can't .. i mean ... wow ! E.
Your mix of Bjork – Hidden Place is great.
Actually, it sounds fantastic. NX
What a mix !
I am dancing in my head, spinning and spinning.
Tell me you are not smiling
when you listen to this WICKED WICKED WICKED :) FJ.
There are loads of ropey trance and dance remixes of stuff out
there. This is not one of them. It's very well executed, really
good to listen to, and if somebody did end up passing it onto
Bjork you'd probably end up on commission :-)
Top stuff ! A.
I love those mixes !
I have never really heard a Bjork remix that I actually LIKE.
Wow! Thanks. E.
I think you have a very promising career with your talent !
Keep it up ! E.
Wow !! This should be encluded somewhere in the official discography ! i.
Trance isn't my thing, but this mix is extremely well-done.
You're talented, I look forward to more remixes from you. L.
Wow, thats all i can say is wow. C.
I just found your Pagan Poetry and Hidden Place Bjork remixes on the net and I can't believe that i have actually found you !! I remember these mixes from the good ole BRW ! You are incredible !! M.
I downloaded your remix of Bjork's Pagan Poetry
and I have to say, it was an incredible remix.
I've listened to it repeatedly and it sounds better each time!
Good work ! T.
This remix is a wonderful remix, and a great trance track.
I miss bjork's luv for dance muzic.
Thank god for BRW and remixs like this. XCO
Hey...well done !!
I love your remix... Bjork should hire you immediately ! M.
Believe the hype...
This one kicks ! And I like that it's long ! R.
Beautiful ! Beautiful ! Beautiful ! Beautiful !
Beautiful ! Beautiful ! Beautiful ! Beautiful !
You have my congratulations for this remix !!!
Continue like this !!!!! :-) R.
Love the Pagan Poetry remix !
I felt a real rush listening to it.
Love the way the lead 'harsh' synth comes in after
"He makes me want to hurt myself".
It'll be my version of choice from now on,
especially when I want to dance !
If there's any justice she'll release it as a dance remix for you! V.
Never thought this song would go so well with straight beats... great! G.
This is definitely the best Pagan Poetry remix.
It's a difficult song to remix, but this one really works. C.
Wow ,I love it !
Congratulations you are amazing
and you have to do more remixes like this. J.C.
FREAKING AWESOME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I actually am disapointed with 50% of the remixes people come out with and the ones that are pretty cool aren't THAT great but this... this is brilliant. It ecompasses everything I love about music... bjork and trance... its beautiful and I'm going to show to all my friends that like Bjork and say "SEE !! Bjork could soooo do trance if she wanted to..." THANK YOU !! S.
Since most of Vespertine is designed for slower tempo songs,
it is rather interesting to discover
a pretty good upbeat remix of Pagan Poetry.
In some ways, this works just as well
(or even better) than some of the "official" remixes. F.
This is Great!
I didn't like the start, but when I heard the last 5 min,
I was addicted! :) KeepItUp ! M.
Great work on Hidden Place !!! OMG what do i have to do to help you get this liscensed ???? I want to help in anyway I can... I'm just a Björk fan who believes she needs more talented people like you working on remixes for her ! This song was sexy before but you somehow made it sexier ! Keep up the GREAT work and I hope to hear more remixes in the future ! S.
I looove this mix ! Very nice ! M.
I think it is has conventional style that works really well.
Either you hate it or you love it and personally
I thought it was outstanding. Encore ! Merci ! T.
Dope remix !! M.
Fucking Great ! R.
AB So LOOT LEE FAB U LUZ !
Has she contacted you ? She should... V.
Hey there. I love your mix. It's distinct and complete, with the right blend of sharp and smooth sounds. And well-paced. *smOOOoooooch* *ahem* sorry. Extremely spiffy!
Thanks for makin it available. S.
Ah, come on, you're a liar !
Actually YOU ARE this guy, eh, what's his name,
Paul Oakenfold, am I right ???
Superb job, this one kicks hard !!! R.
The fucking bomb ! Y.
I love it. Very energetic and perfectly molded together. C.
Wow, this is a fantastic remix !
Keep up the good work !! Sounds very pro ! J.
Just thought I'd drop you a note to tell you
how much I enjoyed your remix of Bjork's Pagan Poetry track.
Well done! If you don't mind I'll copy a version onto my
minidisk player to listen to while I go roller blading ! B.
Wow! I love it ! How did you get the vocal tracks ?
Did you create the Supernova sounds yourself ? R.
Im listening to pagan poetry remix and it makes me ecstatics!
Its exactly this kind of music i was looking for about this album S.
Hey hey... a friend of mine sent me the link to this and I really really dig the "Hidden Place" remixes. I spin downtempo/trip-hop in town on most Thursday nights; any chance of me getting a better quality mp3 ? I'd love to play this out... Excellent work :). R.
BRAVO JC ! Some really cool beats, I could easily see it on a bjork cd. Maybe best bjork dance mix I have heard !! T.
OMFG - It gets better everytime.
Sickeningly spectacular in a travelling sort of way. F.
RESPECT. for sure the best remix i heard here. E.
Words cannot explain. O.
Probably best remix I've heard so far... D.
I just couldnt find what bjork´s publisher
has to say about it :) M.
Hello there ! I had to do myself a favor and give you thanks and praise for sharing your awesome mix with us ! Truely mindblowing work. D.
Very cool! :-) I like it a lot.
I think it sounds very french (and that is a good thing)
I totally agree with the reviews on your page...
Keep up the good work, mate V.
This mix is AWESOME!!!
It`s the best Pagan Poetry mix I`ve heard.
Love it! M.
So...wonderful !! H.
It Sounds Great and Powerful !!! W.
This is great, why don't you release this ? D.
I LOVE them...Dope as hell.

Ahhh ! I was waiting for it, GREAT ! M.
Juste un petit mail pour vous féliciter pour le remix de Pagan Poetry que vous avez réalisé. J'ai du le mettre sur CD il y a presque un an, et il tourne toujours régulierement dans ma chaine. C'est un vrai plaisir. J'ai un énorme respect pour ceux qui arrivent à me chatouiller les oreilles de maniere si agréable. Merci encore. R.
Encore mieux que l'original.
Je ne pensais pas que ce serait possible. Bravo!!!
j'adore ! K.
Tes remix de Bjork sont remarquables. S.
Je salue la remarquable performance de ce remix. Tres beau travail pour un resultat exceptionnel ! Je le connaissais déjà mais j'ai eu l'occasion de télecharger à nouveau et c'est à nouveau la même émotion. L.
Vraiment EXCELLENT !!!
Les mots ne peuvent pas exprimer comment ton remix
a ajouté une autre dimension dans cette chanson...
Félicitations ! ;-)
Félicitation pour tes remixes !!!!!!!
Ils sont vraiment excellents! !!!!! J.
Un peu long mais vraiment très bon !
Même si on n'aime pas la trance on aimera ce mix.
Mais qui es-tu, JC ??? L.
Très bon !!! De pouvoir danser sur des versions
qui initialement sont faites pour relaxer
bien au chaud, chez soi !!!
Allons danser la poésie payenne ! P.
J'ai lu le message vers 3h du mat',
là il est 5h, ça veut dire que le remix
de Pagan Poetry tourne ici en boucle depuis 2 heures !
Needless to say, I like it :-) P.
Ca a du te prendre un temps et un travail monstres !
Ca a sa place dans les remixes officiels :-) C.
J'ai téléchargé votre remixe de Bjork "Pagan Poetry"
et je dois vous avouer que j'écoute
ce dernier en boucle depuis hier soir...
C'est vraiment de l'excellent boulot...Bravo !
Grand admirateur de Bjork depuis des années,
je suis plutôt déçu par la qualité de ses remixes
depuis son retour avec "Vespertine".
Alors je n'ai qu'une seule chose à dire : Merci ! S.
yep, probably the best remix I heard of this song,
I'd like to succeed in doing a remix with the same quality,
very classy, elegant, bravo ! H.
Niiiiiiice. Clever. Very clever with beats.
Didnt take bjork away (ALWAYS a plus).
Sweet job man. T.
This remix is awsome !
It has that something that keeps it moving ! X.
ON-U Sound Style ! Terrific !!!! A.
Thanks for making a remix, not a crap mix. It rocks ! S.
VERY VERY VERY NICE really... N.
Interesting! The volume toggling is most musical,
and the rhythm is sexy and full of attitude.
Even the arrangement (echo efx) is commendable.
All in all, pretty good ! F.
Very well done....props ! M.
Your remix is faaaaaaat ! KC.
Wow !!! L.
Wonderful, Mr. Deep ! ;-) Please go on ! T.
This is perfect, and everything is well balanced !
PLEASE MAKE OTHERS, WE NEED THEM ! R.
I'm a french fan of bjork and this remix is perfect !! C.
Gotta say hidden place is rather tasty...
hope you get it licensed ! W.
I like enough, you have rhythm good work. Excellent. J.
Excellent! Vraiment très très bon.
Respecte la chanson, lui ajoute du groove... ouah ! L.
