    Pricing for remixes?

    Does anyone in here have an insight, how much do producers 'typically' ask for making a remix by request? I'm quite curious about the price range and this also can shed some light on why some labels release solo tracks and others load singles with remixes.
    If you are free in your dreams, then why don't you go to places you always wanted to go?

    It only applies to the few major trance labels as far as them actually paying a producer to remix for them.

    Well I know of one smaller label (about 1000 likes on facebook) which would pay 50 to 100 per accepted remix.

    I once offered a small label to do some remixes for them for free (and for fun in my case) but didn't get any reply

    Remixers usually get a contract too. Where the earnings on that remix are devided by 1/3th between label, artist and remixer. Though that probably differs per label.

    I think they do. Sometimes you see those photo's from producers signing a contract with Armada or whatever (for orginals or remixes).
    all time favorites;

    /arisen.
    /tuvan (andy blueman remix).

    up next;

    Lots of things happening for free these days indeed, the bigger part of the money is earned by event gigs. Things like remixes are only to built the profile to then receive event gigs, at least it's like this for many.

    They rarely ever do. Alot of labels has implemented a threshold for sales until any payment will be made. What i´ve seen £ 100 seems to be the golden limit. If you´re not in the Beatport top 10 you wont reach that number.

    I would say its common practice with alot of labels. With having remixes done for 20+ labels i would say i got paid from maybe 5-6 labels.
