i thought it just meant an alternative mix that a producer has made of one of their tracks, and its called a VIP cos it used to be that only he or his affiliates wud have tht version to play live. But the explination sammy dogger gave does make alot of sense to me now. Im getting a bit pissed of with the amount of VIPs people make these days. It seems to be a surefire and quik answer to labels having nothing to release. sorry to continue the thread but this has cleared sum shit up for me at least.
