Every DJ remix I have ever heard sucks. I find it difficult to take any DJ at all that seriously. Apart from making them more club friendly, DJs always ruin music when they adjust it.

Are you including stuff like this when you say remixes?  If so, I have to disagree:

 

 

OT: I never thought of Lady Gaga's stuff as dance music.  Way too poppy.  If that's dance music, it was made mainstream well before Lady Gaga.

Justice is just higher quality crap... DJ FTL.

I respectfully disagree.  Their original stuff is amazing, and their remixes frequently improve upon the original songs.

Check out this Justin Timberlake song they did.  It blows away the original (which wasn't too bad to start with):

 

You're not going to tell me that Daft Punk is crap as well, are you?

 

Sorry, I just hate it when DJs change songs and especially songs which I love. So whether or not Justice for example is good for a DJ hes still bad in my eyes. The best DJs are probably music producers really, they get all my lovin'. Outside of the club scene the original mixes 99% of the time are better.



Tease.

Well, plenty of DJs still do original mixes. Let me point you to a good one.

I'll have to listen to it later. My dog is with me and she hates that kind of music.



Tease.

Pop music is mainstream, which is why its called POPular music.

Well I struggle to call Lady Gaga electronic dance music but if you insist on comparison Play by Moby was both bigger than The Fame and released ten years earlier. His music was undeniably in the mainstream.

Your dog has good taste. You should buy her a pair of Kantie Panties, only $26.99 (special friends-of-sheep rate)

You realize Daft Punk and Justice make their own stuff, right?  So they get all your loving, but you think they're junk at the same time.  Also, do you realize how many music producers frequently sample other pieces of music?  Taking something and making it your own isn't bad.  I agree weak remixes are pretty boring and aren't likely to surpass the original, but when you take something, transform it, and make something entirely new out of it, I think that's very respectable.

This next one's going to mind fuck you, considering your outlook on creating vs. transforming music (I don't see the two as so different, personally).  This is Justce's remix of Justice's OWN SONG (which is an homage to Michael Jackson):

Original:

To me it sounds like your issue has more to do with your inability to accept change to something you like than any real quality issue with remixes.
