MINIMIX - 2002
Minimixes are the mixes Ben made from 1983 to 1993 (and again in the new millennium). They are usually mixes of one track and one artist. They have been broadcasted by Radio Veronica on friday evenings. The dates shown are the dates they were broadcasted for the first time. These mixes are in some occassions the same as on the CDSingles Ben remixed/produced. In other occassions they're just 'practice'.

|Shakira vs Bee Gees vs Britney Spears - Whenever Wherever / Staying Alive / I'm a slave 4 U||Shakira, Whenever wherever, the hit that introduced Shakira to the rest of the world, meets the track that introduced disco to the rest of the world, Stayin'`alive by the Beegees.|
The minimx starts of with the rhythm of Britney Spears' Slave for you, soon to be joined by Shakira's vocals and topped of with the famous Stayin' Alive groove to supply the music. Enjoy!!
|Marco V vs Underworld - Born Godd||God / Born Slippy|
|Alcazar vs. Chic - My forbidden guarantee||Again Alcazar takes a danceclassic as the foundation for a their new hit 'Sexual Guarantee. This time it is Chic's Forbidden lover, (special thanks to Frans vd Kamp) a track from the album Dance Dance Dance, that supplies the groove for this disco track.|
The minimx completely reunites Chic's Forbidden lover with Alcazar's production of Sexual Guarantee. the track is running more than 12% faster to meet the new musical key, and is timestretched even further to meet the new tempo. This insane high speed however doesn't take long to get used to, and makes it possible to further combine the 2 tracks into a single mix featuring both songs. Filter effects, edits and sound processing further completes this minimix. Enjoy!!
|Ben Liebrand - Grandmix 2001 Playlist||31 days in the making, millions of digital bits and hundreds of digital edits. Cutting edge technology combined with traditional craftmanship: Ben Liebrand's Grandmix 2001.|
Many requests reached Ben to also make the vocoder playlist. Although not such a longlasting tradition as the Grandmix itself, the vocoder playlist has become a much appreciated addition to the Grandmix itself. Using a device called vocoder, Ben voicecodes a sound to be articulated with his own voice, thus creating the legendary robotvoices.
|Ceejay+Ben Liebrand+Armin van Buuren - Give me an answer (Armix/Liebrand Edit)||Recorded in 1989 the original version was in a trance style, although trance is much faster now. The original track features CJ on vocals and a balaeric horn section in the track. All instruments by Ben Liebrand.|
Armin van Buuren has made a brilliant remix leaving out the horn sections and introducing new melody lines and breakbeat parts. This version will probably also appear on a re-release of Styles in february or march this year. From the Armin-remix, Ben made a 7:00 minute edit, so you could see this as Ben making a remix on a remix on his own track.
When you read 'I did this..' or 'I decided to..',
then its the remixer who made the decision.
A lot of the information you read here is written by the remixers themselves.
