Marc JB is one half of remix-meisters Bimbo Jones and they’ve recently celebrated their 77th number one remix.
Marc decided to share his wisdom at ADE last week when he gave a seminar on how to remix. If you missed it, why not grab an interview with the man in person and pick up some tips?
Details from the event:
As a very successful remixer himself, British producer, DJ and multi instrumentalist Marc JB is the ultimate authority to tell you ‘how to remix from start to finish’. He has reworked tracks (as one half of Bimbo Jones) for class A celebrity artists, such as Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Pink, Ke$ha, Kelis and Katy Perry.
In this workshop Marc will show you how to make remix from scratch. He will show you step by step how to create a remix from start to finish using an acapella, soft synths and sample CDs, telling you the production secrets behind over 70 remixes and productions to #1 in the US and UK dance charts.
Marc JB will also show you how to prepare the project and set up a good template, how to prepare the acapella, produce the beats and how to add bass and synths from there. You will learn how he cuts up acapellas for effect and how he prepares a track for the dance floor by arranging it and how to use filters to build the break down. Mastering will also be discussed, followed by a Q&A session on the process of production and the remix industry.
