Everything is a Remix – Part 1 of a 4 Part Series on the Remix

Goodie Bag, a web video producer, makes short episodes on a variety of interesting subjects, and this week they picked up a 4-part series on how everything is a remix. The video, after the jump, takes a look at the old school artists and how they came up with their "original" material. This traces an early remix starting from an early 1961 writing technique, then brings it to the early rock material. Parts 2 - 4 are not out yet, but I am sure they will prove to be very interesting and show even more light into the world of remixing.

As far as DJing goes, we almost always play other peoples music and remix things on the fly at the club. Many DJs will make their own dance remixes of songs to further enhance their set and set them apart from your standard DJ. DJ Spinbad is a great example of someone that does that. So when you are creating a "new" track, don't be shy, let your creative juices flow, and remix your ass off!
