Evidence: remixes used by record companies as way to funnel money away from real artists on a massive scale.

Evidence: remixes used by record companies as way to funnel money away from real artists on a massive scale.

The scale of how much this has happened is probably impossible to gauge. In my experience it has been practically everything I have ever worked on, and happened to practically every other musician and producer I have ever met.

In all of my remixes, I did most of the work. I am a control freak and during all the remixes I’ve ever done I have always been what is called the producer. i.e. I control the creative input, what bits are used and where they are used. I happened to also control the mixing desk and the computer. A lot of my remixes were done and arranged by my ex-partners mate because of a legal dispute he and my ex-partner were having that I got dragged into. This was because we couldnt release any music under our own name. So each remix for me was just an excuse to play with equipment, practice music and try and make a good track.

During my remix period in the 90s, I find it mostly just sounds like a beginner trying to find their own voice but this does not take away from the fact that I have created things that other people keep stealing my money for.
