The Future of Music remixing is Here


U-Myx Imogen Heap:
"One of the formats for the upcoming release of Immi's new single 'Headlock' will be a U-myx digital download. U-myx allows fans to buy a remixable version of the track which which they can create their own unique remix of 'Headlock'. The track costs the same price as a normal digital download and can be pre-ordered here. You can also check out a 30 second preview of the U-myx here."
This is the first example I've seen where an artist makes available the source of a song. It's in the U-Myx application, which is a free download, but it's an easy way to see all the parts that go into making a song.

This is very cool.

Download it and click on all the little rectangles as the song plays to see how the song was made and how you can change it.

It'll be cool when you can buy remixable parts of TV shows with Final Cut Pro project edit decision lists...

  1. OMG, this is very cool. I've wanted to be able to do this for years (decades?), ever since I wanted to separate Clapton's two overlapping guitar solos on Cream's "Politician".

    Yourspins looks a bit pikey- its all non famous bands- and as a result- pretty uninteresting.

    Theres a Depeche Mode U-MYX demo up on the site as well- i've just spent an hour entrenched- heaven!

    Pikey - lol - it has moby (same as U-myx), sasha etc. Where is the Depeche Mode link? I missed it - is it just preview or full track? Cheers
