"The Café del Mar, Hôtel Costes, Buddha Bar and Verve Remixed compilations satisfied the yuppie-ish chill-out, downtempo and trip hop aesthetic of the late 1990s and the early 2000s."--Sholem Stein

Verve Remixed is a series of albums released by Verve Records centered on the concept of classic Verve tracks, remixed by contemporary electronic music producers and DJs. The series has proven to be very popular, both with fans of the original recordings and with younger generations of music listeners, many of whom are exposed to the classic jazz and blues artists for the first time.

In addition to the albums that include the remixes, each volume of the series has a companion album titled Verve Unmixed, containing all of the music in its original form. The three original Verve Remixed albums are also available as a boxed set, The Complete Verve Remixed Deluxe Box, along with a bonus album, Verve Remixed Plus.

These compilations have proven popular with several retail and restaurant chains as background music.
