DJs Remix for truth® Campaign

The good folks at truth® want to share every last shred of information available about nicotine and smoking, which means they've got a laundry list of pretty nasty details on hand. But it's not all gum cancer, premature death, and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome due to secondhand smoke. The anti-smoking campaign also delivers its message through good music, and the its latest endeavor in this area is The Sunny Side of truth® compilation, in which the organization enlisted a handful of DJs to remix tracks from its current summer campaign.

Diplo, DJ Spooky, Z-Trip, the Cobra Snake, and others have chopped, sliced, and reconfigured tracks–which all contain messages about smoking and cigarettes–into bouncing house numbers, electro bangers, and crisp hip-hop beats, all packaged with the company's somewhat lighthearted but kind of dark artwork. The compilation is available for as a free download from the truth® site, and be sure to check the standout track, a dirty, b-more remix of "Magical Amount" from Mad Decent's DJ Sega.
