Hello Mark!, would you consider having some fans do some remixes for you?

thanks
Jason

we did that with the Politik remix contest (a project that is a few years old now, but we're still planning its release!), and honestly 85% of the submitted remixes were pretty unacceptable quality. the way the internet is now, everyone who does a remix would have theirs up on soundcloud, youtube, etc and while i applaud the democracy, i'm a huge believer in quality control. that doesnt mean i wont make the opportunity for remixers happen again, but i am a little wary. when a remix is subpar it just makes the original parts less than they are in their original form. once in a while i come across a new producer/remixer who i dig and organic communication can definitely lead to a remix.

short answer to your question: yes (albeit with provisos!)
