Back in the old days, you remixed a song using a razor blade (muti-functional), tape and a splicing block. It's a lost art that has been swallowed whole by technology running rampant. Today's remixer's have the luxury of tools that were not even within our wildest drug fueled imaginations! Computers, samplers, digital files and a wide array of gadgets and gizmos have taken the remix out of the studio and put it into the bedrooms and basements of music enthusiasts everywhere. The remix is now an established and permanent part of our musical vocabulary. The remixer is considered as much a musician as the the artist themselves. The editors featured today get the RFW Gold Razor Blade Award for pushing the envelope and putting a distinct personal stamp on each project.
