Merry Mixmas: Christmas Classics Remixed

(Capitol)

Updating holiday mainstays like Ella Fitzgerald's "Sleigh Ride" and Lena Horne's "Let It Snow!" with snazzy breakbeats, Merry Mixmas puts a refreshing spin on songs that have become second nature to mall-shoppers. Breathing new life into the likes of Nat King Cole's "All I Want for Christmas" and Eartha Kitt's "Santa Baby," an international array of producers puts a little hip back into the mundane hop of seasonal overkill.
