    I was just thinking the common "how would you remix your favorite track" and it struck me how stupid it would be to remix your favorite track. If it is your favorite, why would you redo it? Then I was thinking of remixing tracks you didn't like, and making them into something you did.

    Then I took it a step farther and thought about remixing a track not having heard the original. Like being given a couple phrases or midi riffs or samples or short audio segments and creating something wholly your own with it. Has anyone been involved with something like this, and if so, how did it turn out?

    yeah, exactly

    i only remix tunes i dont really like

    and the last remix i started, i deliberately didnt listen to the original track. i'm pretty sure i put the vocal in a different key, and i knew if i heard the original i wouldnt be able to have my key seem normal anymore. as to how it turned out, hmm, well, i posted a clip on here a while back but i still havent finished it

    there was a moby track a while back that had a remix competition. someone sent me the web link, and i downloaded the samples for the remix. it was good fun, i didn't actually hear the original until after i'd done the remix. probably a good thing. my version was very different. obviously didn't win. think i overdid it on the strings. sounded like an accident in a violin factory.
    i've been talking about doing it again with a friend with tracks that we've both got that go nowhere but have got good riffs going to waste.
    dunno if we'll get round to it tho.
    like to have a go though.

    Hallucinogen In Dub was done like that.

    I couldn't tell you what the original tracks sound like, but I suspect they were probably faster.

    There was a remix comp for 'Mass Destruction' by Faithless a while back, which I had a go at. The samples sounded awful. I think that tune originally had quite a different sound in terms of the mix as well. Certainly an interesting one that. I remember de-essing Rollo's vocals a bit as well :blink:
