When a tune gets a remix why are some V.I.P mixes?
bugged me for a long time so...
i duno if this is rite!
i fink a vip mix is usually dun by the artist themselves.
and given out to vips very important ppl!
i fink it stands for that anyway!
Yeah that's a good question , I've been wondering what it means for a while to . I tought it was someting like Verry Improved P... but I'm probably totally wrong
There's already a massive long thread about this with many, many suggestions...
Some good theories out there but I'm not suire if therte's a definitive answer on this!
Very Important Person.
Originally special mixes of tunes were done for dubplate only, and handed out to big DJ's (VIPs).
Nowadays, these tunes tend to get released it they're recieved well enough.
There's no restrictions as to when a remix can be called a VIP, but they tend to be by the original artists, and less of a significant reworking than most remixes.
kinda like a half assed remix!lol
I tought it was just when a producer thought he could improve something about a track but didn't really remixed it , it was called a vip . and sometimes maybe a producer listens to his own track and he thinks : hmm , this could be done better and he improves it it was also called a vip .. my personal tought ..
the amount of ppl that have problems with defining this i dont think there is a definitive answer
jus that its usually phatter than the original
I think that sounds about right, all the vip's i've herd are better than the original (baring Dreadlock VIP) where as remix's arnt always better.
dude dreadlock vip is a true vip, most artists just add an extra wobble, but this is soo well done
yeah man I rate Dreadlock VIP, mainly because I never got the origional so just sttled for the VIP when it came out...
I was thinking about this to. I got Jaydan Crank tune, Then i heard VIP of it sounds much better. Whats dupplate stand for?
a dubplate is what djs get cut on acetate (record)if the vinyl isnt released yet.
Ok cool, cheers for that, nice 1.
people normaly put (dubplate) after a track title if it hasnt been released or been sighned to a label also.
Dis explanation sounds good to me mate, dat was my understanding. If not, it must be pretty close to what it stands for
could it mean "Very Important Press" ? or like u guys say, it might mean important person/DJ
never know.But thats my take on it.
To be honest I doubt if anyone really knows - it's just become the standard thing to do when you make a new version of a track you just stick VIP on the end of the name, it's just become one of those things...
Its a way of freshening up an old track for the "very important" DJs. Keeps people hyped up for a bit longer. Once a track's been released to the public it loses some of it's wow factor so they make the VIP.
Separate names with a comma.
