Remix Service Definition

A remix service may be defined as an actual remix services for the following reasons:

  1. All have re-edits, remixes, or megamixes of songs on them, as opposed to compilations of original 12" mixes (such as the main City Wide Records service or any of the Promo Only CD series).
  2. Nearly all have or had an actual phone number or address on them and could be contacted for information, as opposed to true bootlegs that have false information (such as ON-U Sound) or no contact info at all on them.
  3. All are pressed in limited quantities (one hundred to several thousand copies) and are rarely repressed if at all.
  4. Many received permission from the respective record labels to re-edit or remix a song, although some did not or were forced out of business for not doing so.
