If I could make a good living doing what I love, it’d probably have to be remixing. Since I was ten-years-old, I’ve always aspired to become a remixer simply because I love hearing the same songs I know and love, but in a different light. For example, I’m currently listening to the Bermudez & Griffin Radio Mix of Mis-Teeq’s “Scandalous.” Originally, the track was an R&B song that came out in 2001, but Joe Bermudez instantly tweaked said track, transforming it into an edgy, tribal house-inspired remix! Since then, I can’t stop listening to Bermudez’s take on such an already hot track.

I’ve often wondered if I needed to go to college to become a remixer, and turns out I can if I want to better my skills. Usually, people learn how to remix in one of two ways: One, going somewhere like Full Sail University for their Recording Arts program; two, installing remix software a la protools on their computer. Preferably, I like the former due to the fact that I’d be getting the hands-on learning/training in order to help me become successful in the music industry. Even though I’m currently attending a technical school for business, I want to transfer to Full Sail so I can get my BA in Recording Arts. Eventually, I plan on one day starting my own remix compilation service. This is why I want to become a remixer, so I can introduce the world to my own sound and style of music.
