Incredible ‘age of re-mixes‘. DJ’s defying constructed boundaries between music and noise! Rupturing charming original music to create new forms of listening. Not all our favourites will be worthy, work-in-progress re-mixes. Thank God!
Original titles should always be sold with a ‘do not disturb’ sign. Avoids being completely unrecognisable. Sophisticated sound management techniques, digital technologies make it easy for songs to be rearranged, combined, remixed. Flaunt remixes as an innovative phenomenon. Uncertain legal status of remixes, mash-ups brings great frustration.
Remix culture, rather amateur creativity, makes it nearly impossible for aspiring artists to own original works. Modern dismissal of original genius for fake mediocrity? Please don’t butcher beautiful Beats!
