Blake Lewis Is All Mixed Up

If there was ever an American Idol alum whose music deserved the remix threatment it's...Clay Aiken.

Nah, just kidding, folks. I don't forsee Mr. "I'm Not Trying To Be Justin Timberlake" collaborating with the Neptunes any time soon. I'm talking about a different popular second-placer: last season's Blake Lewis, of course.

The only Idol to ever pass the mic with Doug E. Fresh, beatbox almost every dang time he opened his mouth, and publicly call Taylor Hicks a "d**chebag," Blake actually has been trying his best to be Justin Timberlake. And he hasn't done too shabby a job of it, either. He's brought a little bit of sexy back to AmIdol, that's for sure.

So the beatboxing wonderboy has just released The Remixes EP, featuring electro reworkings by such DJs and producers Dave Aude (Annie Lennox, Britney Spears, Blake's ulitmate idol BT); DJ Dan (Fall Out Boy, New Order), and Jake Benson (Billie Myers, Erika Jayne). If you're curious to get in the mix, listen to it HERE.
