Motown Remixed is a 2005 compilation album containing remixed versions of Motown hits, released on May 24, 2005 by Motown/Universal Records.

Several hip hop and dance producers, including: Z-Trip, DJ Jazzy Jeff, The Randy Watson Experience, Salaam Remi, Groove Boutique (aka DJ Rafe Gomez and David Baron), and Easy Mo Bee, took hit records by The Jackson 5, The Temptations, The Supremes, and others, and re-imagined them in new styles. The Jackson 5's "ABC", for example, is re-imagined by Salaam Remi as a crunk song, Smokey Robinson's Quiet Storm is presented by Groove Boutique as a lush, chilled out jazzy jam, and Tranzition takes The Supremes' up-tempo "My World is Empty Without You" and transforms it into a ballad.

The iTunes Music Store version has several additional remixes in the album. Furthermore the UK, European and Australian releases each have a few remixes that were not included on the US edition and are marked with an asterisk [*] below. An accompanying compilation, Motown Unmixed, features each track in its original version.

In 2007, a follow up album "Motown Remixed, Volume 2" was released.
