Experience has led me to take a reserved approach to remix albums. The established formula tends to consist of adding faster beats, protracted vocal samples and headacheinducing baselines. Remixology is no different. The same pumping bass lines, the same vocal samples and the same techno beats passed off as ‘remixes’ massacre track after track. Not even Fatboy Slim seems arsed on his ‘Old Skool’ take of ‘Renegade Master’. It’s bad enough the people behind this compilation let the record slip past quality control; it’s even worse that more of the same is to follow later with a series of remix albums.

For Cherwell, maintaining editorial independence is vital. We are run entirely by and for students. To ensure independence, we receive no funding from the University and are reliant on obtaining other income, such as advertisements. Due to the current global situation, such sources are being limited significantly and we anticipate a tough time ahead – for us and fellow student journalists across the country.

So, if you can, please consider donating. We really appreciate any support you’re able to provide; it’ll all go towards helping with our running costs. Even if you can't support us monetarily, please consider sharing articles with friends, families, colleagues - it all helps!

Thank you!
