Remixes - A few questions bitd

Post by DJ ABO » Tue Sep 29, 2015 7:10 pm

The topics that cross my mind while taking a shower on my honeymoon in Wales :lol:


I can't remember Seduction letting many if any people remix anything on Impact during '92, Rhythm Section always remixed their own tunes, the same with The Criminal Minds.

Did they do this to avoid paying someone to remix their tunes? Or were they just trying to stay ahead of the game by only letting themselves remix the big tunes that they had produced?

The thing that I liked about Suburban Base was that most of the time their tunes would also come out on a separate remix ep with various artists remixing the tracks.

Seems a shame that we didn't have separate remix ep's of other big tracks.

There was that SL2 remix of Live Together, thats the only one I can think of!

I liked the tit for tat remixes, for example Danny Breaks remixing Cookin Up Yah Brain in exchange for the 4 Hero remix of Peace and Loveism. Both great versions, there are other ones too but I cant remember.

There were a lot of remixes by other artists on Impact 94 onwards, but you're right I can only think of Live Together before 94. I think many remixes back in the day were done on an exchange basis, rather than pay a remix fee they'd just remix each others tracks.

At Shadow we always tried to do a remix EP. We did swaps, paid people etc etc.

When labels are getting started they probably can't afford to pay for remixes they could do themselves. Keeping it in-house you know what you're going to get.
