This week we spoke “Remix Culture” and how it basically works. Pretty much a remix is a mix of songs to make one or a cover of one song made up by several others.
Today anyone can pretty much make their own songs (keeping in mind copyright…) and well YouTube lets us do this. Living in Wollongong, pretty much anyone who owns a turntable or a laptop is a DJ but it’s people like DJ Earworm who absolutely nail remixed songs.
DJ Earworm is famous for creating songs that include all the favourites from an entire year. Since 2008, Earworm has created one song full of many, topping charts and making them hits. DJ Earworm is a great example of Remix Culture as he shows how advanced technology is today that allows individuals to produce pieces easily.
Even online viral videos are becoming remixes, Vine videos combined with a great hit make them ten times funnier. Just like this one: Watch me.
