Remix \Re*mix"\ (r?-m?ks"), v. t. To mix again or repeatedly.


n. 1 (context music English) A rearrangement of an older piece of music, possibly including various cosmetic changes. 2 (context music English) A piece of music formed by combining existing pieces of music together, possibly including various other cosmetic changes vb. 1 (context music intransitive English) To create a remix 2 (context music transitive English) To rearrange or radically alter a particular piece of music 3 to mix again


A remix is a piece of media which has been altered from its original state by adding, removing, and/or changing pieces of the item. A song, piece of artwork, book, video, or photograph can all be remixes. The only characteristic of a remix is that it appropriates and changes other materials to create something new. Remix - Creative personal rendition of a song/video

Most commonly, remixes are associated with music and song recordings. Songs may be remixed for a variety of reasons:

  • to adapt or revise a song for radio or nightclub play
  • to create a stereo or surround sound version of a song where none was previously available
  • to improve the fidelity of an older song for which the original master has been lost or degraded
  • to alter a song to suit a specific music genre or radio format
  • to use some of the same materials, allowing the song to reach a different audience
  • to alter a song for artistic purposes.
  • to provide additional versions of a song for use as bonus tracks or for a B-side, for example, in times when a CD single might carry a total of 4 tracks
  • to create a connection between a smaller artist and a more successful one, as was the case with Fatboy Slim's remix of " Brimful of Asha" by Cornershop
  • to improve the first or demo mix of the song, generally to ensure a professional product.
  • to provide an alternative version of a song

Remixes should not be confused with edits, which usually involve shortening a final stereo master for marketing or broadcasting purposes. Another distinction should be made between a remix, which recombines audio pieces from a recording to create an altered version of a song, and a cover: a re-recording of someone else' song.
