From your point of view, what makes a great remix?

My favorite remixes are reworked to sound completely different than before such as changing the song to a new genre or tempo. I think it’s really great when a remix of a song can be musically relevant on its own but makes use of the original melody, whether it’s a vocal clip or riff in a new way, breathing life into a song you might not have heard or even thought about in a while. It’s also awesome when someone can take a commercial pop song, for example, and transform it into something recognizable but completely different and geared towards a new audience that wouldn’t have been receptive to the original work.
