So there a couple things going on in the world or "edits"/"re-edits" that I don't quite understand right now. I'm all for re-edits. I'm all for taking an old disco cut and making it a little better or looping the intro of an old rock song and turning it into my own thing. That's where 90 % of music comes from now er days anyhow it seems. But lately there is a new trend emerging. People are taking music from older sources, entire songs, changing nothing except maybe adding a reverb to one drum hit, and renaming the songs as their own. This really just makes absolutely no sense to me. I feel guilty not giving credit to the original artist of a re-edit I've done when the edit thoroughly changes the feel of the song and I add many elements. But we have people out there taking songs by bands for example, Deep Sleep by the B-52s and changing nothing and renaming them and releasing them as their own. Hmmm.... steeeerange.
here's my re-edit of Deep Sleep by the B-52's which makes it quite a bit more dancy....

anyways... have a nice day, drive through please.
