Remix songs made to win | This is how you can stand out
By 14 September 2014 1306 Views No comments

For an EDM DJ producer, it is very important to stand out from the masses of Artists out there today. One way is to remix songs that people know well and are popular. Famous DJ entertainers commonly use very popular songs to remix.

Avicii for example remade and remixed the song “Hey Brother” and made it his own. The benefits of remix songs that were popular and now old, are that no one within the fan base of your artist name usually knows the original track , but the effect of the well designed track remains. Many Hip Hop artists as well love to use and sample old popular and melodic songs to boost how unique and recognisable their music becomes.

The chances of an old popular track becoming a new popular remix song is high. Simply bring the beat, instrument and now synth use to the time we’re in and you’ll have a vey impressive track that can get 6 million views on Youtube in no time. The only issues are the royalty rights to the tracks and if you’re Avicii with Universal behind you, then this issue simply disolves in magnitude. This doesn’t mean that all hope is lost, as all popular songs have the associated royalties removed after sometime and less than 10 seconds can be sampled without concern, as far as I know. Please make sure to consult with experts before attempting this without agreement from the royalty owner!

Remix songs made by professionals for you

Around 30% of our custom ghost production requests are remix songs.

Our tracks in the store are wonderful music productions, but when we consider custom tracks and remix songs, then we are certainly looking at musical creations that are perfectly suited to the customer and hence optimally made to their expectations and satisfaction with the customers input.

Remix songs must include recognisability, individuality and unique styles and sounds that make you stand out form the masses. In remix competitions it’s the tracks that are the music productions of best quality, interest and long life potential that make it to the top of the voting tables ad charts. Remix songs that have these features encompass the charts and are shared around the web the most.

If your artist name now has a website for example, these social signals to the original post on your site will push it up the Google rankings and this is just one side effect of successful remix songs made by professionals for you.

Remixes of popular songs

Remixes of popular songs that work out, are a great way to show your production talent to your fans and potential employers. Remixing popular songs is also a safe way to ensure your listeners satisfaction as well.

Music producers at Producer Factory are more than skilled enough to perform affordable remixes of popular songs for you. Simply send us your request with the remix kit and remix stems and even midi files if available.

We shall then review your task and inform you accordingly of the fees involved and the appropriate producer to suit your style. Consistent style production is a serious thing to consider when you want the best reaction from your fans and to keep them entertained. Remixes of popular songs are also a great way to increase your release rate and often they become the hits of an album as the Avicii example above. That “Hey Brother” example is just one of many contained in his newish album.

Remixes are a very digestible and recognisable

Remixes are a very digestible and recognisable with individual melodies ringing through the music track that remain in the listeners ear all day. This music identity is a type of branding for your alias and that is important to uphold in future productions, at least during the next few realises. Over time your style will evolve, bend and twist in multiple directions, remixes of popular songs are a great way to try something new without the highest risk of rejection by your fans.
