how it works
The different instrument layers, or ‘stems’, of remixes are grouped into categories based on their similarity, such as drums, bass, keys, and FX.
Stems are also assigned rarities indicating that some remix elements will be more common than others, and the two sets of stems are never repeated.
The original and remixed stems of a track or score will be fed into the Boogie Machine, a proprietary content processing engine developed by TokenTracks Head of Innovation, Richard Rauser.
The output of Boogie Machine is a set of NFTs featuring stunning 3D visuals from Graffiti 6 member and visual artist, Jimmy Crayon, with random combinations of musical stems, as well as randomly generated artwork.

“It was really important that each remixer had its own distinctive sound. I wanted all of Revolution’s remixes to be completely different: different tempos, chords, arrangements so that when you mix you get these crazy combinations, ever amazing Sometimes a car accident but always funky.”TommyD, creator of Graffiti6 and co-founder of TokenTraxx.

The vibes, the music, and above all Jamie Scott’s phenomenal vocals made it a remix.” These remixes have created some unique and unexpected pieces of music and art, making us excited to be a part of this Web3 project.”London-based producer, composer, and DJ on the drum and bass scene, Calex.
