Get the Stems

The most common way of doing remixes is by downloading the stems often found in remix contests, or shared between artist. 

Stems are the individual tracks of a song, this include the vocals, synths, basses and other elements used in the song. 

And right now you can download and practice your remixing skills by downloading the Stems for “Trust” and participating in our own remix contest!

Play with the Tempo

Even though “Trust” sits at 100bpm, don’t be afraid to speed it up or slow it down. Changing the tempo can completely transform the vibe of the track.

Experiment with Key Changes

While E minor is the song’s original key, shifting the pitch can add an exciting twist. Imagine the same melody in a brighter or darker tone – it’s like seeing the song in a new light!

Add Your Signature Sound

What makes your music uniquely yours? Whether it’s a killer bass line, dreamy synths, or unexpected instruments, weave in elements that showcase your style.
