What is the difference between a VIP remix and a normal Remix?
A remix is an alternative version of a song, different from the
original version. A remixer uses audio mixing to compose an
alternate master of a song, adding or subtracting elements, or
simply changing the equalization, dynamics, pitch, tempo, playing
time, or almost any other aspect of the various musical components.
Some remixes involve substantial changes to the arrangement of a
recorded work, but many are subtle, such as creating a "vocal up"
version of an album cut that emphasizes the lead singer's voice. A
song may be remixed to give a song that wasn't popular a second
chance at radio and club play, or to alter a song to suit a
specific music genre or radio format. Remixes should not be
confused with edits, which usually involve shortening a final
stereo master for marketing purposes.
VIP in this context stands for Variation In Production. It means
the original producer has remixed his own track.
