    You need to get in touch with people, on forums, soundcloud, facebook, twitter. And find someone that can add something to your song (or you can add something to their song). Talk about the process, how you imagine the song will sound like, and try to be in an unison with that person. From there, you can choose any way you want to woth with him/her: exchanging wavs, project files.

    It's not that hard once you two have decided where you want to go with the production of the song.

    Would you say that working on a remix for someones tracks is a good way to gain publicity and get your music out there?

    Depends. you can do remixes for any song you feel like. Of course, you'll need to get permission for that, specially if it's a big name. But this doesn't mean you'll get more recognition for doing this remix.

    If you do a sit-down collab, as in physically being in the same place to work, don't get too bogged down on technical details like precision EQ'ing or debating whether 2:1 is a better treshold for the drum bus than 2.2:1. It kills the mood fast. Concentrate on laying down ideas and the creative side of things.

    This. It's very important to separate things. I like the idea of working with the creative part first, and the technical part after that.
