The rise of the Remix

What is remix culture?

Remix culture is a society that allows and encourages derivative works by combining or editing existing materials to produce a new product.

It can also be defined as the global activity consistent of the creative and effective information made possible by digital technologies.

Remix has been extended to many other different areas of culture, which includes visual arts, and it plays a vital and critical role in mass coummunication and the internet.

The early form of remix is from Jamaica, but isn’t really seen as a remix. It is not defined by all material activities. It is also remembered as a cultural phenomenon, and first it is a must that we define it as music.

In fact, the very first disco song is called “Ten Percent” by Double Exposure, remixed by Walter Gibbons in 1976. It was extended to 10 minutes long.
