80's and 90's 12 Inch Mixes

Jan Hammer – Miami Vice Theme (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 22nd May 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

“Miami Vice Theme” was created and performed by Jan Hammer as the theme to the television series Miami Vice. It was first presented as part of the television broadcast of the show in September 1984 and released as a single in 1985, peaking at the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100. It was the last instrumental to top the Hot 100 until 2013, when “Harlem Shake” by Baauer reached number one. It also peaked at number 5 in the UK, and number 4 in Canada. In 1986, it won Grammy Awards for “Best Instrumental Composition” and “Best Pop Instrumental Performance.” This song, along with Glenn Frey’s number-two hit “You Belong to the City”, put the Miami Vice soundtrack on the top of the US album chart for 11 weeks in 1985, making it the most successful TV soundtrack of all time until 2006 when Disney Channel’s High School Musical beat its record.

It’s a mystery the US 12″ credits François Kevorkian and Ron St. Germain as remixer while the UK 12″ credits Louil Silas Jr.. The “Extended Remix” seems to be the same mix that appears on the UK release. So who actually remixed the track?
