Am I supposed to give him all my invidual tracks? or let him download the wav on my sound cloud and say "fuck yea go for it?" which i'm about to do. I dont care about the money he can do it for free, it's a big honor that someone asks me this. Any advice from you experienced folks? Smiley

batch export each track and give him everything, won't beable to do a huge amount with a straight bounce.

Give him samples and stuff too if you can be arsed.

Full stems or just the loops if you don't trust him taking your track completely. Check out what you get in those remix comps to get an idea of what pieces you normally get. Key samples, key loops and maybe drums, but they are less important.

Well i'm not really in a position to know if I can trust him or not, he's on the other side of the world (America). So I can't just go there and deliver the punch when he's going wrong with it or anything. Perhaps the most important part that I have to consider is that my track isn't signed jet (none of my tracks are as of jet). So the only hold-on to prove that the original is mine is the date "1 month ago" on my Soundcloud and the Logic pro file.
Which obviously isn't very much.

At this stage a lot of things are done on trust. I guess you could get him to sign an agreement, which will help protect you a bit. Otherwise it's your call on whether you want to let him have your music to tinker with. Does he have a track record of doing remixes that you like?

Set up a dropbox, upload stems then add remix bloke to the dropbox is probably the easiest way.  That way if they need anything extra like midi parts or samples you can just drag it to your dropbox folder and he/she will have access immediately.
