As one of music's greatest minds, Prince was responsible for some of modern music's biggest hits over his extensive and innovative career, inspiring millions of fans and fellow musicians alike along the way.
No surprise then that some of dance music's finest producers have lent their own personal touch to The Purple One. One year on from his tragic and untimely death, we look at 6 of the best.
Tiga - The Picture
Electro prince Tiga expertly covers "When Doves Cry" in this groovy, seductive house hit for Crosstown Rebels' hundredth release.
Controversy - Seven Davis Jr.
Like Philip Sherburne wrote, "It takes some chutzpah to cover Prince," but the Texas native knocks it out of the purple park with his murky cover. And no, it's not necessarily house, but we couldn't not include it, now could we?
Navid Izadi - Feelin Purple (Soul Clap Remix)
Seriously funky Prince tribute from California's Navid Izadi with funk-master's Soul Clap on the remix. Check out the original here.
Traffic Jam - Ron Hardy Edit
This rare cut from Chicago house legend Ron Hardy on RDY absolutely stomps. Props to the always fantastic Bicep blog, where we found this gem.
I Wanna Be Your Lover - Dimitri From Paris Re-Edit
Cracking re-edit from a disco champ that doesn't overstep its bounds, keeping all that original Prince funk flowing from start to finish.
When Doves Cry - Finnebassen Remix
With rubber band bass and pitched down vocals, this remix absolutely screams "made in 2012." But hey, it's still a solid remix, especially if you're feeling nostalgic about both late era deep house and Prince.
