    This book truly covers every aspect of remixing, from finding songs to remix, to getting a bar code for your CD, and author Erik Hawkins does an admirable job of touching on every relevant topic in between. The real treasure in this book is found in the sections dealing with...

    production. There’s excellent advice given about targeting a style and setting up your sequencer to begin remixing including essential facts about time-stretching and time-correcting remix elements. The chapter on working with lead vocals and micro-editing is particularly eye-opening and useful far beyond the context of remixing. Perhaps the coolest thing about this guide is the included CD which allows you to hear the production techniques being described. As a guide to remixing and electronic music production in general, this book is a solid hit.
