Remakes & Remixes. There is a difference you know...

Posted by BallinFatty - February 26th, 2008


This has been bugging me for a while, and I thought I'd post it here just to get it out of me. People (lots of them here on newgrounds) will "remix" a song, but when you listen to it, doesnt it always sound the same?? Not to offend anybody, but there is a difference between a "remix" and a "remake". I have nothing against any remakes, in fact, some of them are actually pretty good, its just when people label it as a remix, (when it is clearly a remake) that irritates me. The difference being, a remake is the typical newgrounds-artist song: The same tempo and same notes, just replaced with different instruments and drumkits. Not that they aren't good, but the original sounds just the same. Dont be boring, we want to be excited and amazed at any talent you may have!! A true remix is when certain elements of that particular track are changed. For example, slowed or quickened tempos, a change of pitch and/or beats, changing the theme of the song (i.e. transforming a metal song into a jazz loop or vice-versa) and what really spices up a remix, is throwing in some melodies and riffs that are your original ideas. Sure, I havent done all of that in the past, but I am really trying to improve what talent I may have and create remixes, not remakes!! Like I said a couple times before, I'm not offending anybody, I'm simply sharing my view and encouraging the many other great musicians out there to experiment with different techniques, and make the best REMIX ever.

STOP READING THIS AND GO MAKE A GREAT SONG, OR GO LISTEN TO ONE OF MINE!!! PREFERABLY ANYTHING SUBMITTED AFTER 2008

Hi, I'd really like to review one of your songs since you reviewed some of mine, but you have so many submissions... Where should I start? Any recommendations or favorites?

Yeah, I'm kinda guilty with some of my songs...
