Being a member of 'The Japanese Popstars' and having to deal with a lot of remixing of music, we have had the opportunity to really be able to identify good remixes. I can’t say that there is a perfect formula to making a good remix, that's impossible in my eyes. I think you have to feel the track and think that you can work with the parts that are provided, as every track is different and every artist has their own feelings that they can pour into making music.
When we get commissioned to provide remixes we look at the song and between the three of us decide if we like it and then we choose elements that we can use to influence how our own elements that we will add sound. So we basically strip the original part and try to make our own version of it.What are the best remixes of all time? Take a look and listen here, and you'll see for yourself.
