Note Note: This is not a style guideline, this is simply a suggestion from a user

work in progress...

I plan on covering multiple types of remixes, including mash-ups.

Definitions

  • Remix: A substantially altered version of a song, produced by mixing together individual tracks or segments of one or more source works. The artist doing the remixing can be the original artist. The source audio material can be from any part of the process; including the final mix, master, remaster, or original raw audio materials. If the tracks have been significantly modified, more than is necessary to produce a continuous mix, then the action described by relationships is considered to be remixing, not compilation or DJ mixing. Note: not everything called "remix" is really a remix in the classic sense. In hip hop especially, it's typical to call "remix" to a new version of a song with different guest rappers; these should probably not be linked to any artist as "remixer". Example compared to the Original
  • Mashup: A track which combines multiple songs into one, classically an instrumental from one recording with the vocals from another, but there could be any number of recordings involved. Example
  • Rip: A recording that uses instruments (typically from a video game) to play a different song. Example

Artist credits

Artist credits should match what’s given on the release. If that’s not possible for some reason, the track artist should be the original artist, and the release artist should be the remixer.
