My favorite thing about electronic music is that possibilities for creating different instrumental tracks are endless. One thing that I do on a daily basis is find different remixes for a song and listen for new combinations of beats, chords and synth effects that mix well with the main melody. It’s definitely interesting, and it’s taught me a lot about different sound effects that I can incorporate into my own music.
Above all, listening to remixes is a lot like listening to a song for the very first time. Oftentimes, I will hear a song and wish that it were a little faster or slower, with a little more bass, or a few extra beats here and there. Remixes can make these ideas into reality, and it’s really cool to hear someone make variations to a song in the exact way that you had envisioned. Other times, a remix can show you a version of a song that you never expected would work. Either way, it’s a lot of fun.
