Joey Beltram on Vice’s Thumb:
Up until four or five years ago, I was really against other people remixing my music. I didn’t want to be interpreted by anybody else. I didn’t get the point.
Glad he did allow to be remixed every now and then by a select bunch of people though. Robert Armani’s remix of Game Form for instance is still a killer track. Luke Slater’s remix of Forklift and Technasia’s remix of The Start It Up come to mind as well…
Of course, I was being a little hypocritical, because I was doing tons of remixes of other people, completely ignoring their directions. It was all about me. But I’m a little bit older, and a lot more relaxed. I’ve been opening up a little bit.
