Big news for remixers today with Spotify rolling out a feature that will credit artists’ remixes of tracks. Remixes will be added to the monthly stream count, meaning artists can collect song-level insights, giving them invaluable data to engage with fans and evolve musically.
“For the first time, streams of your remixes will count towards your monthly listeners,” the update states. Remixes that date back as far as 2015 will be credited.
As the Spotify update rightly eludes to, remixes can build bridges across genres and cultures, and there’s no better example than the legend Louie Vega, one half of Masters at Work. His recent remix of Loleatta Holloway’s song ‘Can’t Let You Go’ was nominated for a Grammy.
So remix whatever you can get your hands on and know your work always has, and always will be appreciated. Here’s one of our favourite remixes of late below.
