Reply To: Question for making any remix
So if you had asked the artist if you could remix the track, or they had asked you, you’d be working with the original stems, samples or project files. The fact that you’ve had to rip the samples off the mastered version means that you’re making an unofficial bootleg.
For the most part, as long as it’s not getting plays off anyone, then no harm done, it’s just a personal project. Worst case though, you upload it everywhere without the original artist’s consent, give it to people to play in clubs/radio/online mixes/etc, and the artist finds out about it, tracks you down and makes sure that you don’t get any releases on any labels they’re affiliated with. So it’s your call son.
